Darklight On ... Shelley Russell Nolan

Today's Darklight On Is ... Shelley Russell Nolan

Welcome, Shelley





The Soulfully Sexy Men of Lost Reaper

From the moment the idea for Lost Reaper came to me, I knew the men who would vie for Tyler’s heart had to be pretty amazing. First I came up with the names, Detective Sam Lockwood and Chris Bradbury, and made notes about who they were and what they looked like.

Sam – handsome, steadfast, honest, his calm and considered manner makes him an oasis of safety in a world that is rapidly spinning out of Tyler’s control. But can she ever tell him the truth about being a reaper?

Chris – gorgeous, wealthy and powerful, he knows what he wants and makes it quite clear that what he wants is Tyler. But is his interest more for her or the power contained in the necklace that makes her a living reaper? 

Two very different men staking claim on Tyler’s heart, both dangerous but for different reasons.

Then, as you do, I got to thinking about who would play them if Lost Reaper were ever to be made into a movie and realised that inspiration was already present in their names.

Sam (Worthington) Lockwood and Chris (Hemsworth) Bradbury.

Who better to portray Tyler’s men than two of the hottest and talented actors in the world? How could any woman not be thrilled to have those two men fighting over her?

Okay, so there is no movie planned (Hey, Hollywood, anybody there want to make a movie?) and my Sam and Chris are different men, and different ages, from the actors I would choose to play them, but I can totally see it. So, as you read Lost Reaper, reading on as both Sam and Chris fight for Tyler's heart, I want you to picture Worthington and Hemsworth playing their roles on the big screen. 

FYI – Nina Dobrev would make a fantastic Tyler. After all those years on The Vampire Diaries, she got a lot of practice being torn between two totally different men. (I was Team Damon)

So, who else thinks Dobrev, Worthington and Hemsworth would make a great love triangle? On-screen only, of course. I would love to hear who you think would be great playing Tyler, Sam and Chris.



Blurb

The first dead body I ever saw was my own 

For twenty-five year old Tyler Morgan, being murdered was easy. Easy in comparison with working for the Grim Reaper. Jonathon Grimm may have brought her back from the dead in exchange for working as a reaper for her home town, Easton, but she has to find his lost reaper before she can enjoy her second chance at life. 

Only … the lost reaper isn’t actually lost. He has a new body, a new life, and no intention of turning himself in. 

Tyler begins the grisly task of reaping the souls of Easton’s dead while searching for the reaper. He could be anyone – the intriguing detective, Sam Lockwood: the handsome, wealthy Chris Bradbury; or the serial killer stalking the women of Easton. Women who bear an uncanny resemblance to Tyler.

As the killer closes in and Grimm’s deadline draws closer, Tyler discovers she is fighting a much bigger threat than the Grim Reaper and time is running out for everyone.

Magic Thursday ~ Lost Reaper and Speculative Species with Shelley Russell Nolan





Speculative Species

On the way home from Genrecon my seven year old son asked me why I like zombies. To spare him nightmares I simply replied that I thought they were wonderfully creepy and lots of fun. I certainly couldn’t tell him that I thought they were the ultimate monster, driven by an insatiable hunger for human flesh and relentless in their hunt for it. They have no conscience, no morals, just the need to feed. (For the record, I like my zombies slow and shambling. Those fast ones freak me out.)

My son’s question got me thinking about all the other creatures that populate the speculative fiction worlds that draw me in again and again. Paranormal, extra-terrestrial, supernatural, mythical or magical, I love them all. And I really love how the lines between the worlds can blur. Talented authors are blending more than one species into their stories, mixing the well-known with obscure or totally imagined creatures, turning what I think I know about the speculative fiction world on its head.

While I do have a couple of ideas for zombie stories in my ‘One Day I Will Write This’ folder, I decided to make reapers the focus of my debut urban fantasy ‘Lost Reaper’. When I started writing the first draft, over five years ago, I couldn’t find many books featuring the macabre little suckers. Since then I have seen more than a few popping up but have resisted the temptation to read them until after I have the next two books in the series written.

For ‘Lost Reaper’ I also had to come up with an entirely new race. At first I toyed with the idea of extra-terrestrials, and then came up with the Tr’lirians. Earth’s original inhabitants, and the root of many angel myths, they have hidden themselves away in a higher plane.

But that all changes when the Grim Reaper resurrects a seemingly ordinary human girl and turns her into a living reaper. Tyler Morgan has one week to discover the truth about her heritage if she is ever to enjoy her second chance at life and with more than one person wanting her dead that is not going to be an easy task.

I really enjoyed creating a new race of beings, and putting my own spin on the Grim Reaper and his underlings, but I’m sure it won’t be too long before those zombie stories start clamouring loud enough to get there turn to shine.

Dark Light On... Jess Anastasi

Today's Darklight On is ... Jess Anastasi

Welcome, Jess 

When Its A Long Time Coming...

Its a little surreal that I'm sitting here writing this post, staring down the release of Atrophy on Monday. Nearly every author will say that they have a book or series of their heart, and for me, Atrophy is it. Anyone who has known me for a number of years will have heard all about this book and the longish journey I took in getting it published. So I'm sorry to those people, but I'm about to do some rehashing. If you want to skip down to the blurb, then the moral of this story is going to be the old cliche of "never give up." Or, if you're a Foo Fighters fan, then you'll appreciate the quote from the lyrics of their song Best Of You that I have written on the top of my whiteboard in my study: "I swear I'll never give in, I refuse." 

So. Atrophy. I wrote this book back in 2008. I was post-studies (Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing), just had my first daughter and feeling the burn of not being published despite the fact I'd been writing for seven years. I had been struggling to do that magic thing all other, more experienced authors tell you, "find your voice." Despite trying to write historical romance, paranormal romance, and romantic suspense, and having the basics down, I wasn't quite "there" yet. Something was missing that would take my writing to the next level.

Around this time, I started working with my critique partner, Erin Grace, who basically went to town on my work (in a totally good way) and taught me a lot in a short amount of time. I'd been reading some sci-fi romances like Linnea Sinclair, but hadn't seriously considered writing a sci-fi romance myself, because I had this silly misconception that only super-smart people wrote sci-fi, and since science was never one of my strongest points, didn't think I could convincingly pull it off.

The idea for Atrophy had been sitting in my mind for years, ever since I'd watched Firefly about three or four years earlier. I'd also been heavily into other sci-fi TV shows like Stargate and Farscape.
After some back and forth with my crit partner, who may have even issued some kind of challenge, I decided to write Sanctuary, which would later become the first book I got published.
When I sat down to start Sanctuary -- which I was calling a paranormal romance set in space -- I was doing it for no other reason than fun and wanting to see if I could carry the weight of the sci-fi mantle.
And something happened. Words flowed. Characters cooperated. Dialogue was easy. It was like nothing else I'd ever written before. Sanctuary was only novella length, but by the time I finished it, I knew I'd struck the muse's chord perfectly. I also knew that I had to write Atrophy.

The only two things I knew when I started Atrophy was that I wanted to write a Firefly-inspired story about a close-knit crew working and living on a small ship. I also wanted the captain of that ship to be seriously dark with one heck of a tortured past. And when brainstorming with another writing friend of mine (who was more into screenplays at the time), she had a character named Rian, which I immediately fell in love with (the name, not the actual character). While she wasn't sure what she was doing with her work, I asked her if I could "borrow" Rian and the captain of the Imojenna came to life.

When I'd finished writing Atrophy, I knew that I had something unique in my files of unfinished and unpublished manuscripts, something I'd never be able to recreate even if I tried. I had discovered my voice, and I had written the book of my heart.

The journey of getting this book published is another long story, filled with many, many, many rejections. At the time it was frustrating, but now I can see that everything no doubt happened exactly how it was meant to. When I sent Atrophy to Entangled and they were so excited about it -- particularly my editor who helped me put the final shine into the story with some very awesome editorial advice -- I knew I'd found the right home. The home Atrophy was meant to have to see its full potential.

Some of the pre-release reviews have compared Atrophy to Firefly and its only made it all that much more surreal because Joss Whedon is my idol (seriously, I would pretty much fan-girl and die if I ever met him). 

And like the final touch to what is already an amazing gift, my publisher surprised me with the mother of all release parties -- they're hosting a live viewing event on twitter featuring the pilot episode of Firefly.
Yes, this was a long time coming. But I can say that it was definitely worth the wait.




No one on Erebus escapes alive...

Twelve years on the prison planet Erebus makes a man long for death. The worst part for Tannin Everette is that he was framed for murder. He’s innocent. When the ship Imojenna lands for emergency repairs, Tannin risks everything to escape…only to find himself face to face with the captain’s undeniably gorgeous sister.

Zahli Sherron isn’t planning on turning Tannin in. In fact, she actually believes him. Sure, he’s sexy as every kind of sin, but he’s no criminal—so she hides him. But no one escapes from Erebus and lives to tell about it. With every day that passes, Zahli further risks the lives of the entire crew…even as she falls in love with a man she can never have for herself.

Enchanted Orb with Maggie Mundy

 

 
Today's Enchanted Orb post is with Maggie Mundy who is celebrating her latest release, Scarred Protector and the inspiration behind her series.

Maggie Mundy: How do you get your inspiration?

For me it can come from all different sorts of places. I find a single song lyric can be the basis for a whole story. Other times it might be something on the news or a documentary on TV. With the Midworlder Trilogy I wanted to have a different take on angels and demons.

A lot of the books I read with angels in were based around the religious concept of what these beings were. I came up with the idea of them being aliens and the idea that all the myths surrounding these beings were just that, myths. Of course this meant I had to create a world they had originally come from and why they were on Earth.

I hope you come on the journey with me with the first two books in the series. I am working on book three, Lost Protector as we speak.



 


Available November 18th 2015 from Soul Mate Publishing.


Blurb: Scarred Protector


Angels and demons are not what you think. They are aliens, and the Midworlders are their representatives on Earth. An Angelic Midworlder called Heath goes to the aid of Evie who is about to be attacked by Demonics. He soon discovers she can see the angels and demons around her and is in grave danger. He is captivated by Evie who has physical and mental scars like him. They are tortured souls who are deeply connected by his past. There is an evil lurking inside Evie that could kill them both.

Darklight On... Maggie Mundy


Today's Darklight On is ... Maggie Mundy
 
Welcome, Maggie
 
 


How did you come to write speculative fiction? What attracted you to the genre?

I grew up reading epic fantasy books among others, so it seemed logical if I was going to write a book that it wold be fantasy. The first of a trilogy at 120,000 is still sitting on my computer. I then branched into paranormal romance when I started to read books in that genre. I really like the blend of magic with the everyday. I have started to write contemporary romance and women’s fiction but I have to be strong or the magic and the chopped up bodies will be trying to get in there too.


Are you a plotter? Pantser? Or somewhere in-between?

A plotter, though I have tried to be a pantser, but find I need a rough guide. I like to write out a few sentences for each chapter and work from them. This is not to say things have not gone off in a completely different direction. I was writing the second book in a trilogy recently and to my surprise, someone I thought was dead turned up. The muse sometimes say. ‘Hey you, I want to go this way.’


Do have a favourite of your characters?

I love the hero and heroine from my book Scarred Protector coming out next month. Evie is tough and feisty and won’t give in, and Heath is dark and brooding and a bit of a present day Mr Darcy. I should have had him in a wet shirt scene in the book. These two have pasts that will affect their futures together. Did I mention I make my heroes suffer?


What are you currently working on?

Lots. Worlds Reclaimed is the final book in my Earthbound Trilogy. If you love vampires, werewolves and alternate worlds, it could be your thing. Lost Protector is the third book in the Midworlder Trilogy. More angels and demons fighting over Earth. On the contemporary side I’m writing a series based in Los Angeles. Lots of movie stars and hot sex.


What is your favourite part of the process of writing?

Thinking about the story and suddenly getting that moment when you know it has come together and makes sense. I also love the bit when the words flow and the story just seems to happen. Like most writers I also know what it feels like to get stuck. When that happens I go back to my goal, motivation, conflict system and usually work out what is missing.


What can we expect from Maggie Mundy in the future?

I have an idea for a science fiction romantic comedy. I have also branched into self-publishing with my book A Death in the Family. It is a 1920’s murder mystery with a psychic twist. I would like to try and self-publish some more books.

Who are your favourite authors?

Sarah Dunant, who wrote the brilliant The Birth of Venus. Jane Austin, J.R. Ward. Margaret Attwood. Bethany Kane. 


What are you currently reading?

Kissed by Water, Delwyn Jenkins. Book three in The Watchtower Chronicles. I love the series.


Do you have a favourite spec fiction movie or TV series?

Firefly. I thought the world Joss Whedon created was excellent. The characters were three dimensional and strong as well as being flawed.


Do you have advice for emerging writers?

Never give up and keep practising and learning. Join groups like RWA and attend conferences if you can. I am lucky to live in South Australia where we have the SARA group. (South Australian Romance Authors) They are a wonderful bunch of supportive writers. Find a critique partner. I have the wonderful Delwyn Jenkins and can’t begin to say how much we have supported each other on our journey.

 
             
Unknown Protector

Two things have helped Nicole cope since the murder of her husband. One is running her detective agency, and the other is her guardian angel Mira. When Mira is killed by a demon, Nicole accepts the help of Ridge, a long haired, cigar smoking diamond in the rough with wings. Things go from bad to worse when a replacement guardian cannot be found. She has to trust Ridge, which is tricky when she realizes there are no demons or angels, just parasitic aliens that humans have built the myths of these celestial beings around. Ridge isn’t an angel or a devil, but an alien half breed known as a Midworlder. He is also way too sexy for his own good, or is it her own good.

Darklight On ... Janni Nell

 Today's Darklight On is ... Janni Nell
 
Welcome, Janni
 
 
 



How did you come to write speculative fiction? What attracted you to the genre?

The fact that I can use my imagination to its fullest. I like that there are no boundaries in speculative fiction.


Are you a plotter? Pantser? Or somewhere in-between?

I’m a pantser by nature, but I work more efficiently if I plot. So I’m trying to develop the habit of plotting.


Do you have a favourite of your characters?

I love my new heroine Ellie Oxrider, but I’m also very fond of her cousin, Matilda, who’s a shadowmaster and a bit of a diva.


What are you currently working on? 

Another Ellie Oxrider novel.


What is your favourite part of the process of writing? 

It’s when the outside world disappears and the words are flowing like a river in flood.


What can we expect from Janni Nell in the future?

More books, I hope. As well as Ellie Oxrider, who I hope will be around for a while, I have a dystopian that’s been rumbling around in my brain. Maybe that will finally get written.


Who are your favourite authors?

Susan Howatch is an all-time favourite. Suzanne Collins for The Hunger Games. Tracey Chevalier, Samantha Hayes, Deanna Raybourn, Tess Gerritsen.


What are you currently reading?

Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier.


Do you have a favourite spec fiction movie or TV series?

Gattaca for movies. The main character has some seriously crappy genes, which means he can’t do the thing he wants most. But he’s a fighter. And he won’t take no for an answer.

TV series do not get any better than Carnivale. I loved that show!!!


Do you have advice for emerging writers?

Be patient, keeping working and improving. Don’t expect to be an overnight success.

Thanks, Janni Nell! 
 
 
 
 

Ellie Oxrider doesn’t like being the only “normal” member in her family of witches. But Ellie’s life is about to change. First she meets Saxon Darkwood, who claims to be an accountant but knows an awful lot about magic. Then she’s stalked by a shadowy figure that may or may not be real. Plus her aunt’s having premonitions of danger and her grandmother is warning her to stay away from Saxon. Suddenly normal doesn’t seem so bad.

Now it’s Ellie’s job to discover the identity of the shadowy figure, and the truth about Saxon Darkwood. And that’s going to take all the skill and courage she can muster. Things will never be normal again.

Darklight On... Cassandra L Shaw

 Today's Darklight On is ... Cassandra L Shaw
 
Welcome, Cassandra
 
 



How did you come to write speculative fiction? What attracted you to the genre?

I read a wide range of genres and sub-genres but the truth is over 70% the novels I really enjoy contain some sort of sci-fi, supernatural, or paranormal element.

When I decided to give writing a well-focused go, the story that came to me the strongest was a paranormal / sci-fi romance so it was that story I wrote. I love the world building in speculative fiction, the sense of I can make the rules of this world (yes, I love power—he he he), and I enjoy how I show my characters exactly how I see them.

I also write contemporary romance and romantic suspense but the majority of stories I think of come to me with otherworldly or supernatural elements though they usually also contain suspense elements too.


Are you a plotter? Pantser? Or somewhere in-between?

A strict pantser. I keep playing with plotting and have taken so many courses and workshops in the art of plotting but in the end—I pants my pants off.

I’ve even written over 20 pages of plot then when I dove into writing the story only followed my week worth of effort for two chapters (and I ended up changing those too). So I must face the fact my natural way of writing is pantsing.

I do however, when stuck or faced with a writers’ block, jot down ideas for the next two or three scenes and choose the best option and follow those ideas. That method probably makes a devoted plotter’s skin crawl but we must work the way that suits us as individuals and writers.


Do you have a favourite of your characters?

That’s a tough one. While writing each story those characters become your favourites but I have to admit I have a soft spot for Angel in my Grave Robber series. This is probably because she and I have to work together over several more books so I better enjoy her.

In my Katoom series each couple only gets the one novel devoted to their story, their romance. I have to admit I love writing men the most. Men talk to each other differently compared to the average woman. They think and react differently—in general to women. Kaid in Twin Flames is a mix of alpha and beta guy (whatever he needs to win and save the girl) and Xylvar the hero in the second in the series (currently writing first draft) comes over as such a bitter soul I’m enjoying trying to hide his good heart.


What are you currently working on? 

I’m working on four books. Yes four, and yes I’m nuts. But life got in the way for twelve months and I’m way, way, way behind where I should be. I’m revising the second in the Grave Robber series, writing the first draft of the second in the Katoom series, revising a single title contemporary romance, and I’ve started writing a Sci-fi romantic suspense that’s a little dark.


What is your favourite part of the process of writing? 

Mmm, that’s a tough one. But I love starting a new story, meeting the characters and developing the plot and story. Then I also love the first two or three revisions where the characters grow richer and fuller and the plot tightens. Once past the 4 or 5 pass point I’m starting to wonder why I write—he he he he.


What can we expect from Cassandra L Shaw in the future?

Books on the New York Times best seller list – yeah, don’t I wish. (Daily. I wish for that, daily.)

Well I love where my muse is currently taking me. So more urban fantasy, more paranormal romantic suspense, and a slight side-step with some contemporary and sci-fi romance.


Who are your favourite authors?

Another hard question as it changes and evolves as I find new authors. But on my top re-order book list, I have Karen Marie Moning and Darynda Jones but then I also follow other authors from other genres. Discovering new must buy authors is the best thing for a reader.


What are you currently reading?

J.D. Robb, her seventh in the Eve Dallas murder mystery series (so written a long time ago) and I just finished Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo (suspense with romantic elements and new author for me).


Do you have a favourite spec fiction movie or TV series?

This too changes with time as some start out great then wander off the track—but currently I’m enjoying Arrow, The Flash (when it’s on), Teen Wolfe and Dark Matter (though I’m still unsure on Dark Matter).


Do you have advice for emerging writers? 

Write a story and finish it (this is the most important part) then take workshops and courses and use these to improve your story. Once it’s all polished and shiny and you think it’s awesome throw the story under the bed and forget it exists.

Think of that story as your apprenticeship piece – it’s not really for public consumption. It was however a very important learning tool.

Now write another totally different story using all you know. And join writing groups, find a critique partner or three you gel with, and keep taking courses and improving your writing and never think you can’t learn more.
