Title: Wrought-Iron Roses (The Curse Collectors Book 2)

Blurb:

Mure

Sisters Rachel, Angie, and Jo may have survived their first encounter with a curse, but hundreds more are lurking within their aunt’s antique shop. There’s just one problem: Peter, the apprentice, has no idea how to start teaching two untrained rune-casters and keep them safe at the same time.

Naet

It isn’t fair to Jo that she has no magic, but her sisters both do. She feels useless and left out. Worse yet, she knows that she’s a liability. She would leave… but, something in the shop is calling to her, reaching out … and she won’t leave until she finds it.

Ail

Every night, Angie’s dreams are haunted by a man who claims he was cursed, and she’s the only one who can save him. When she starts to get sick, Peter and her sisters are sure the cause is her mysterious dreams. How can they convince her that the person she’s determined to help could be the one killing her?

Eles

Rachel never expected to get a magic power and a boyfriend when she inherited the antique shop. Better yet, she’s actually good at curse-breaking. It seems as though she’s found exactly what she was meant to do. But, when a curse strikes two people she cares about, Rachel is faced with the harsh truth that she might only be able to save one.

Author Vicki Batman Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,

Today I have the honor of introducing Vicki Batman. She is quite the character enjoy the adventure of getting to know award winning author Vicki Batman and check out her books.

 

vicki batman picture mayVicki Batman May 2015 Tour

BIO: Award-winning author, Vicki Batman, has sold many romantic comedy works to the True magazines, several publishers, and most recently, a romantic comedy mystery to The Wild Rose Press. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and several writing groups.
An avid Jazzerciser. Handbag lover. Mahjong player. Yoga practioner. Movie fan. Book devourer. Cat fancier. Best Mom ever. And adores Handsome Hubby.
Most days begin with her hands set to the keyboard and thinking “What if??”

LET’S CHAT: How much of your personality and life experiences are in your writing? So much so, my men are afraid anything they say or do will show up. My heroine loves handbags, chocolate, and Jeeps—just like me.

What kind of research do you do for a book? It depends. So far, the funniest has been about plumbing and fruitcake. For Temporarily Employed, I researched stolen car parts, insurance, cops. It helps to be mostly right.

When did you first think about writing and what prompted you to submit your first ms? I wished for a long time I could write mysteries like Dick Francis; yet, it took me twenty years to try. Wish I had begun sooner. Maybe my ideas needed to percolate.

Tell us about your romantic comedy mystery, Temporarily Employed. What motivated the story? Where did the idea come from? A friend challenged me to write the opening paragraph of a book using the word window. I used it and a lot more. My muse worked me for eight more chapters. I showed what I had to my friend and she said for me to continue.

Do you feel humor is important in fiction and why? I do. For me, writing humor in my stories comes naturally. And it is more real life. I’m not a doom and gloomy person. I select specific words for a funny result and write humorous dialogue.

What is your writing routine once you start a book? An idea goes Bing! And I take off, usually in dialogue with a smattering of the other stuff as it pops in my head. My first draft is very, very rough. I read over and over and edit and edit to get it perfect for my critique partner. When I get my critique back, I’d hoped all would be good to go, but alas, it never is. So I work and work it again. Then one day, I let go…

What do you do to relax and recharge your batteries?
Sounds crazy but I always workout. Every single day. I do needlepoint and chill in front of the TV with Handsome.
vicki batman book cover mayBLURB for Temporarily Employed: New Job. New Love. And Murder. Hattie Cook’s dream job is down the toilet and her new SUV violated. Desperate for cash to cover the basic necessities of rent and food, she takes a temporary job where she uncovers an embezzling scam tied to the death of a former employee–the very one she replaced.

When the police determine there’s more to the death of a former Buy Rite employee, Detective Allan Charles Wellborn steps in to lead the investigation. Overly dedicated, always perfect, he puts his job first, even if doing so ultimately hurts the one he loves.

Can the killer be found before Hattie’s time is up?

Today I am going to talk about this lovely sweet story by Mrs. D., Olga D’ Agostino.  This lovely colorful illustrated book centers around Nyda the house cat. This Christmas holiday cat is reminiscing about Christmas gatherings in the house as family comes home for the holiday. One Christmas the daughter brings home two kittens.  Nyda delightfully describes how the dominate cat treats new comers. Made me smile, as I read this story from Nyda the cats point of view.. The story weaves in lessons of acceptance and reminds us that most of us start our in very similar circumstances as family and friends enter our lives.  I enjoyed the lovely heart warming holiday story and I think most kids will love following Nyda in the house as she tells her stories .  You can purchase the this book and others books by Mrs D. on amazon and barnes.

A Rangers’s Tale Adventure

Standard

Rangers tale banner

This romantic, exciting , magical fantasy is a good read. Mysti Parker  book is a must read.

FINALRangersCover RESIZED   In the fantasy world of Tallenmere, an elven noblewoman longed to leave her gilded cage. A half-breed former pirate wanted nothing more than to escape his guilty past. Easier said than done…

High elf Caliphany Aranea leads an enviable life as King Leopold’s niece and daughter of Sirius, Leogard’s most famous wizard. Yet, being forced to follow in her father’s footsteps and being betrothed to a man she doesn’t even like makes her want a taste of life outside the city walls.

As a young boy, half-elf Galadin Trudeaux witnessed his parents’ death at the hands of pirates. After being raised by those same murderers and forced to do their bidding, he escaped and now lives an honest life as a sea merchant and ranger.

When two brutes at Leogard Harbor attempt to kidnap Caliphany while she dreams of faraway lands, Galadin comes to her rescue. Impressed by his skills, she asks him to train her as a ranger. Though he is hesitant at first to train a woman of her class, Caliphany’s hefty sack of gold finally persuades him. Unfortunately, her father is not amused, and the two must escape before Caliphany faces a forced marriage and Galadin faces a noose.

Mysti Parker (pseudonym) is a full time wife, mother of three, and a writer. Her first novel, A Ranger’s Tale was published in January, 2011 by Melange Books, and the second in the fantasy romance series, Serenya’s Song, was published in April 2012. The highly anticipated third book, Hearts in Exile, has already received some great reviews. The Tallenmere series has been likened to Terry Goodkind’s ‘Sword of Truth’ series, but is probably closer to a spicy cross between Tolkien and Mercedes Lackey.Mysti’s other writings have appeared in the anthologies Hearts of Tomorrow, Christmas Lites, and Christmas Lites II. Her flash fiction has appeared on the online magazine EveryDayFiction. She has also served as a class mentor in Writers Village University’s six week free course, F2K.

Mysti reviews books for SQ Magazine, an online specfic publication, and is the proud owner of Unwritten, a blog voted #3 for eCollegeFinder’s Top Writing Blogs award. She resides in Buckner, KY with her husband and three children.

Here is a little about what is going on with me.

What am I working on now?

I am just released my 3rd book. Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland. I just finished the kick off in my home town Christmas in July. I have three Adventure Children Books released from Anchor Group Publishing http://anchorgrouppublishing.com/  ,  https://www.facebook.com/anchorgrouppublishing

I had a grand time being at https://www.facebook.com/oldpioneerstore.emporium

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.
