Good Day Folks,

Today I am honored to introduce award winning mystery/thriller author Micheal Rivers.  The book adventure is his spine-tingling ghost story Verliege.

BESTSELLING PARANORMAL THRILLER AUTHOR MICHEAL RIVERS won 1st Place Runner up at The Paranormal Awards 2014 and has won Supernatural Book of the Year 2012.

Micheal Rivers is the pseudonym for Mike Baugham. His Cherokee heritage prompted him to honor his great-grandfather and write under the name of Rivers. He grew up near the Outer Banks of North Carolina. His love of the sea and all it has to offer was the driving force of his first novel The Black Witch. As a child, he became aware of the supernatural world due to several experiences. A recognized authority as a paranormal investigator with more than thirty years of research, teaching classes and giving speeches provides his readers with some of his experiences woven into his paranormal thrillers. He is the lead investigator for the Smokey Mountain Ghost Trackers.

His works include supernatural thrillers, literary fiction and ghost story anthologies published by Schiffer Publishing. Micheal is a USMC veteran and served during Vietnam. The passions in his life are his wife, family, Boxer Delilah affectionately known as DeeDee, and the great outdoors.

Book Blurb 71zpqULEcHL

Verliege, a chilling paranormal and international crime mystery, begins at Arlette Mansion in the mountains of West Virginia. Prisoner and author Adrian Bolt was transferred there accused of the horrific murder of his wife. She was found brutally murdered by an antique sword. His conviction by a German court was as swift as the sword that killed her. Adrian had not spoken since her death …until… Dr. James Pellitere was able to break his silence.

A deal was offered to Pellitere. Traveling to Germany with a paranormal investigative team they searched for evidence that would clear Adrian and prove him innocent. While at the castle, Pellitere is confronted by the supernatural residents. A battle begins over the secret of the nine and a prophecy is in jeopardy of becoming unfulfilled.

Praise for Verliege

“I was reminded of Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” (1892) and William Hope Hodgson’s accounting of the final voyage of the Mortzestus (1909), and the telling of Lovecraft’s “The Statement of Randolph Carter” (1919). Such is the narrative of this in comparison with these types of confessional stories. Like Gilman, Hodgson, and Lovecraft, the richness of dialog is not lacking in Rivers’s prose. The creatures of Verliege have some similarities with Tim Powers’s nephilim in The Stress of Her Regard, but without the vampiric tendencies. I hope the reader realizes that I am tossing out these comparisons to illustrate the depth of craft honed in Verliege. Rivers does not so much stand upon the shoulders of of these giants as he rubs elbows with them.”
– Amy K. Marshall, Staff Reviewer, Dark River Press

Tomfoolery 13 Yule Lads Of Iceland and what do you get? A lot of Tomfoolery and Fun I’ll bet! The Thirteen Yule Lads of Iceland are much different than the Santa Clause we know. They are mischievous, troublesome, funny, and full of curiosity. Much like James, so when James visits them in their home with Syvok, almost gets eaten by their mother and is taunted by the Christmas Cat, they know right where they are going to come when they visit town the 13 days of Christmas. James finds out that the Yule Lads make the noisiest house guests ever when they come to stay. They clang pots, slam doors, and even bring their own lamb. However amidst all the ruckus what they create most of all is joy and fun for the holidays.

 This is  a book you and your kids will want to read all the time and at Christmas Time. It was my favorite story when we lived in Iceland. I add a different spin to the old legend.

How does it differ from other genre?

Paranormal Days Gone Awry

Paranormal Days Gone Awry

My novel is a Urban Fantasy based off my short story published in Anchor Groups Anthology Paranormal Days Gone Awry. My novel is about secret societies operating for 1000’s of years to protect the earth. This novel is set in the present in Portland. Then my two childrens books are my normal genre. I have having fun with my two main characters Blaze the dragon and her partner Carolyn a troman (half human half troll).

Why do you write what you do?

Well I started writing in 2005, while living in Iceland. The environment and life style is conducive for creative activities. Now I have ideas for book ideas pop up every where I go. I dream many of the stories.

If I am stuck, before I go to sleep I tell myself to travel on this adventure with a character most of the time it is with Blaze from the novel I am working on. She takes me on many adventures.  I have always had vivid dreams, and embraced my imagination.  I am loving this new adventure and learning a new business.

How Does your writing process work?

Some I already talked about. I try to sit down and write in the morning. I put in my music selection and write. When I am blocked I edit and rewrite. Lately life has been throwing me some curve balls so I have not had time to write as often as I like. My ideas have been coming in dreams and I have been to tired to get up at 2 or 4 in the morning to write. I have three kids and we have some changes going on. Plus I am involved with some community projects.

Thanks again to Jodi Desautel at http://authorjodidesautels.weebly.com/what-is-new-with-jodi-desautels.html ,http://duolearning.weebly.com/about.html for tagging me and asking me to tell you a little about myself.

Review: AB – July 16, 2012

Suspenseful, well written and a truly updated ghost story that fits modern times.

In her second novel, Ms. Sloat, once again delvers  an excellent read. Her main characters are well developed and plot line is excellent. The story was well revealed and the side characters were well written. They drew out her characters and plot, without overshadowing the main point.

Ms. Sloat’s themes were eloquently woven together and she finished them off in an elegant bow. I look forward t more from Ms. Sloat and highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great ghost story to read over the summer.

Adventure Fun Blog Hop for Valerie Zambito’s book Angels of the Knights

Standard

When Fallon Angell died at the age of sixteen, her life changed forever.

The hallowed world of Emperica is everything she had ever hoped for as a mortal—immeasurable beauty, unconditional love and light.  But, with affection for humankind still burning within her, she joins the Knight Caste to train as an angel warrior.  As a Knight, she will give up her wings and return to the place that killed her to use her unique powers to search out and destroy the evil Kjin that roam the earth.  As a Knight, she will stop at nothing to protect the mortals in her care.

The elders warn her that the path she chose will be a solitary one.  That she will not have the same bond with humans as she once did.  But, as far as she knows, the elders had never met Kade Royce.

When her duties place her in the path of the handsome former cop, emotions buried long ago rise to the surface and she is powerless to ignore the depth of her feelings for this young man.  She knows instinctively that she has found what most people search their entire lives for.

Ignoring the risks, she invites him into her world of danger, but soon their lives collide with explosive consequence.  As a result, Fallon realizes with heartbreaking despair that she can no longer hide from the painful truth.  In order for Kade to live, she must destroy him.
