Of Souls and Secrecy

SotS Tour Button

Author Terri Rochenski is blog touring with her brand new release, SECRET OF THE SOULS! For her stop on my blog, I asked her, What is the biggest surprise the story and/or characters in had store for you as the author? Her response – and all the need-to-know novel details – are below. Read on!

* * * * *

This is a LOADED question!! One, unfortunately, I cannot answer.

You see, the ending – the climax – of the Pool of Souls series reveals the SECRET OF THE SOULS, which is hidden from all our characters throughout the entire story. Sneaky gods!! It’s a surprise, a grand old secret, which no reader (as of yet) has seen coming.

This all came about by my own dealings with people in positions of authority overstepping their bounds and taking advantage of those ‘beneath’ them. A pulling of strings behind the scenes. The using of minions to accomplish their lofty goals.

Sacrificing for the great good and all that jazz.

Right? Wrong? Depends upon which side you stand on, and what convictions you hold.

When Hyla learns the truth, her faith is shaken, and it’ll cost the life of one she could have loved.

About Terri Rochenski:

Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.

Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.

Title:  Secret of the Souls (Pool of Souls #2)

Author:  Terri Rochenski

Publisher:  J. Taylor Publishing

Release Date:  October 6, 2014

Keywords:  Adult Fantasy

Thrust out of their homes by a human High Priest on a vengeful mission, the Natives of Derlund no longer have a place to call their own. One escaped capture, however, and now she, Hyla, is the only one who can save her people.

For, Hyla, though, saving her nation isn’t her ultimate goal—returning to the Pool of Souls is. Becoming its Guardian and preserving their faith is her heart’s desire. The perils of her current journey, though, could leave her unable to fulfill that dream.

To find her way back to the Pool, Hyla must live among dangerous, powerful humans willing to defend the Natives, and must submit herself—her Talents—to them. While her protection is paramount, plots to end Hyla’s life will push her to her physical and emotional limits.

On the edge of sanity, her courage tested, and convictions nearly broken, Hyla’s final test of loyalty to her faith comes with the death of one she could have loved.

In Which the Guest Author Speaks of Foresight and Surprises

As today’s stop on the TORN Blog Tour, Ever On Word is proud to present Laney McMann! *studio audience applause*

<<<>>>

Torn Blog Tour Button

For my guest post, Danielle was curious about how much of TORN, the second book in the Fire Born Novels trilogy, I saw coming while I was writing the first book, TIED.

This is a great question and luckily an easy one to answer. I saw everything and nothing while I was writing TORN. 😉 What I mean by that is I knew exactly where the story would go, where I planned and wanted it to go, BUT the route in which it took to get to that place surprised me. My characters always surprise me when I allow them to lead rather than trying to direct everything, and I absolutely LOVE that.

At the end of TIED, I knew that TORN would be even darker in nature. I knew where the story had to go, but the extent to which the characters delved into that darkness was deeper than I’d envisioned, and the level of emotion followed in suit. So did the tears. TORN ended up being an emotional whirlwind that I didn’t completely see coming. Layla and Max grew as characters, Justice and Tristan moved to the forefront, and a few unforeseen, as well as foreseen, characters developed into major players. All in all, the story became much bigger in scope than TIED, and it continues to grow.

Writing is always such an awesome ride, and I loved creating a larger world for Layla and Max to live in. A few tears were shed during the process, and I know more will come, as I’m finding as many surprises writing the third, and final, book in the trilogy, TRUE.

About TORN: Find Max.

That’s all Layla cares about. Not healing from the Fomore attack. Not finding answers to how she survived a fall that nearly killed her. Nothing will stop her. She will find him. She’ll even pair up with an overbearing Fallen Angel who’s hell bent on making everything harder than it needs to be if she has to.

Protect Layla.

For Max, nothing else matters. Not the bruises covering his body. Not the pain radiating from his broken bones. Not even his hands tied behind his back. He will find a way to save Layla, and the Fomore will pay if they’ve hurt her.

Every. Single. One of them.

In the second installment of The Fire Born trilogy, a new breed of villain looms—one Layla and Max will never suspect, and this killer has nothing to lose. Better yet, with Max and Layla’s deaths, victory is in the grip of the enemy.

Will Max and Layla find each other in time, or is it already too late for them both?

Laney McMann 2

About Laney: With a passion for the supernatural and all things magical, Laney developed a voracious appetite for reading fantasy at a young age. A vivid imagination helped set the stage for creating her own worlds and placed her onto the writing path.

In Which I Can Officially Call Myself a Published Novelist

That’s right, my friends: It’s release day for “Inspired”! And that means three things.

1 = The wait to snatch up a copy of your very own is over! The book is available via Amazon (sing hey for shiny paperbacks! And Kindle e-books, if that’s how you roll), Barnes & Noble, and Kobo!

2 = If you’d like to try your luck against that of the Irish (get it? ‘Cause it’s St. Patrick’s Day? Aaaaanyway…), you can now enter my giveaway to win one of seven sweet prizes: Either a bookmark complete with a charm inspired by one of the book’s characters, or a signed paperback copy of the novel itself!

Inspired-Blog-Tour-Button

3 = We’ve kicked off the “Inspired” blog tour! From here ‘til April 17th, I’ll be on blogs all over the place (thank you, gracious hosts!) talking about the novel, writing, characters, inspiration… and Robin Hood. Perhaps a disproportionate amount of Robin Hood.

And what, you ask, will good old Ever On Word be up to in the meantime?

In an effort to refrain from talking about absolutely nothing but “Inspired” for a month straight, I will dedicate Mondays to storytelling. I’ve got some old flash fiction pieces of mine that have been sitting around unused; now seems a fine time to share. ^.^

Thursdays will be recap days where I give a brief rundown on the last few blog stops made on the tour. (You can also keep abreast of the tour schedule by visiting my website.) But not only that, a couple of Thursdays (well, one of them’s a Wednesday) will also feature guest posts from fellow authors on blog tours of their own! Oh, and a cover reveal on a Tuesday. Stay tuned for all.

And Saturdays, of course, will still belong to Will Scarlet and his Interactive Theatre troupe, because anything else is not worth the fight. If it’s an author/character power struggle you want, then allow me to direct you to a literary adventure that launched just today, and which I hope very much you’ll enjoy…

Inspired_Cover_Draft_Final_web

For a muse like Lucianíel, one story’s end is another’s beginning.

In the wake of his author’s sudden death, Luc takes ownership of her surviving creations—four fantastical characters with tales yet to be told—saving them from unwritten lives crumbling around them and giving them a second chance at a literary future.

Luc finds that chance in the unsuspecting mind of Annabelle Iole Gray, a quirky teen with her head in the clouds, nose in a book, and imagination ripe for a brilliant muse’s inspiration.

Or so he hopes.

Neither Luc nor Annabelle, however, realize all they’ve undertaken. Even with a to-write list including accounts of a shape-shifting cat creature, gentle knight-in-training, vigilante skater girl, and a mystery boy smothering in unspoken fear, the most remarkable saga created between author and muse just may turn out to be one stranger than fiction.

Their own.

INSPIRED — out now!!! 😀

In Which a Noir Scarlet Gets the Dirt on Alexander Nader

BeastsOfBurdin_BlogTourButton

When I agreed to interview author Alexander Nader as part of his “Beasts of Burdin” blog tour, I had no idea that one of the characters in my head would take that as invitation to conduct the interview for me. Perhaps I should have known. It’s Will Scarlet, after all. And once he heard “Burdin ” features a private eye… well, let’s just say he felt inspired.

<<<>>>

Trading in the medieval charms of home for a seedy office off some gray back alley, Will takes a seat across from his subject of interrogation. Red fedora angled over one sparkling blue eye; pen and notepad at the ready; unlit cigarette clenched lightly at the corner of his mouth for effect.

“So, Alexander – or should I say Alex?” He arches the one eyebrow left visible. “Seriously, which one would you rather? Your book cover and Facebook page say one thing, your blog’s title says another… Who exactly are you trying to throw off the scent?”

Alex: To be completely honest, the Swedish Mafia. You see I’m in witness protection and they took my full name Alexander and very uncreatively broke it up and swapped a couple letters to get Alex Nader. Alex-ander, Alex Nader, get it? Yeah, it’s crazy, but can we just keep that between us? Those mafia dudes are ruthless.

“Ah. Say no more,” Will says, tapping the side of his nose conspiratorially. “Well, I mean, I hope you’ll say a little more. I’ve done a little digging, and I must say, I’ve turned up some pretty interesting dirt. A certain Tweet of yours, for instance, suggests that you and I have something in common.” Will grins. “We’re both said to look like Greek gods.”

Danielle: When has anyone ever said you look like a Greek god?

“You’re all thinking it. I could be Apollo’s twin.”

Danielle: Artemis, virgin goddess of the hunt?

Will casts an annoyed glance at his author. “I am conducting an interview, here. Sorry about that, Alex. Anyway. You said, quote, ‘She did not specify, but if given the choice I guess I’d have to go with Poseidon.’” Will leans forward, gaze intent and not a little suspicious. “Why Poseidon?”

Alex: Easy. He’s my great uncle on my father’s side. Yeah, me and Posey go way back. Every time he came to visit my house smelled like the ocean for weeks. This one time he even let me hold his trident. Man, what a mess that was. It took two weeks to get all the charbroiled flounder out of the carpet.

Will laughs. “I can imagine!” He flips back a few pages in his notepad. “Now, in doing a background check on you and your family, like ya do, I noticed a trend when it comes to your children: Every single one of their names contains the letters ‘av’. It begs two questions. One, what is the significance of this alpha sequence? Two, can you think of any similar patterns to be found within the names of your fictional characters?”

Alex: Yes, the letters AV are, in fact, an acronym: Actual Vampire. It’s because they are slowly draining the life force of my checking account. I mean seriously, do you know how much Nintendo games cost nowadays? There is a similar pattern between the names of my children and my characters and it’s pop culture references. My kids are named from a movie, a song, and a comic book. Bonus points if you can guess which is which.

“Ooh, I love bonus points. Memo to self,” he scribbles aloud. “Match ‘Nader’ kids to source. Win big. Got it. Moving on, and talking of characters, in the press release for your novel— Say, I haven’t congratulated you on that yet, have I? Way to go, you! Where we fictional folk would be without you author people to spill our deepest secrets to the public for cash of which we never see a dime, I just don’t know! That sounded really bitter. I’m not actually, I swear. Seriously, congratulations. Does anyone remember where I was going with this?” He checks his notes. “Yes! Right! Press release. It describes your main character, Ty Burdin, as ‘a man women will love and men will wish were their best friend. Not to be him, just to befriend.’ That’s a pretty sweet character recommendation! How true would you say it holds from your perspective? Do you and Ty hang out as friends? – and, if not, do you wish you could? Why / why not? And say, low key,” he drops his voice to a murmur, “how do you think he’d get on with me?”

Alex: I think Ty is a lot like my worst character traits rolled into a walking, talking insult machine. Ty is really kind of a jerk so if you’re planning on hanging out with him you better have thick skin. On the other hand if you had a drink to offer I’m sure he would hang around until things dried up.

“Oh, I’m sure I could scare up a tankard of ale or seven. One last question, if I may.” Will points his pen at the face across from him. “Since you have a beard and all, I’ve got to ask: Have you ever in your childhood dreams considered joining up with the Merry Men? Not that we all have beards, obviously,” he says, indicating his own face. “But, y’know, it might be seen as a point in your favor. The same goes for hoods and tights. Or if none of that is your thing, what did you want to be when you grew up? And how does it compare with the reality you’re living, Mr. Author/Family Man/Poseidon Lookalike?”

Alex: Tights? Um, tights are to me what a three legged elephant is to tight-rope walking; incompatible. Although, as poor as I am, I’d like to give props to what you guys are doing. Keep the money flowing, chap. So what did I want to be when I grew up? Astronomer, marine biologist, chemist, inventor, Power Ranger, Ninja Turtle, X-man…Really just depended which hour of the day you caught me on.

“Merry Man, superhero… same difference, practically. And that, my friend, is a wrap!” Will flips his notepad shut and extends a hearty handshake. “Been excellent talking to you, sir. That’ll be all for now but, y’know, don’t leave town. …Not that you have to listen to me. I’m not the police. Heck, depending on which sheriff you ask, I’m the enemy. Any case, good luck with your book, yeah? And give your ‘av’ kids my ‘hello’!”

Alex: It was very nice talking with you, Will. And tell Danielle I said, “hi”. I’m done weaving my complex tales of fiction and now I can go celebrate with a drink! (…me and Ty are different people, I swear.)

Alex Nader

About the Author:

Alex lives in the tourist infested hills of east Tennessee with his amazing wife/muse and three superb children. He would tell you more about how awesome they are, but you probably wouldn’t believe him. When he’s not hanging out with them he’s making pizzas. When he’s not doing that he’s working at a bookstore and occasionally he jots a few words down. He’s a big fan of good music, good storytelling, and mixed martial arts.

He once wrote a short story about pirates to his wife via text message that blossomed into a full length novel and never stopped after that.

Blurb:

Demon hunter Ty Burdin hung up his guns, knife, trench coat and fedora a year ago. Bags packed, hands washed of all demon politics, he’s done. Forever.

In fact, to get far far away, he dragged Nora, his rockabilly secretary, from Miami to the Tennessee mountains where he’s lived a life of peace—if peace can be defined as drowning in scotch and taking private eye jobs to keep the lights on. Jobs for real people. Not demons.

No demons.

He’s retired from that. Remember?

Demon hunters aren’t a dime a dozen, though, and when Ty’s brother asks him for a favor—just one—what’s a brother to do? Agreeing to take down one hillbilly demon shouldn’t take that long. In. Decapitate. Out. Favor complete. Back to the office where Nora and his bottle of whiskey are waiting.

Unfortunately for Ty, staying retired doesn’t seem to be in the cards, and an avalanche of bad luck draws him right back to an agency he despises and the career that nearly cost him his sanity.

This time, Ty has no way out and will have to face his own demons just to survive.

“A Morrow More” … or its Author Interviewing Herself

My series of interviews with the authors of the “One More Day” anthology are coming to an end. (Fortunately, this does not signal the end of the book’s availability! You can still get them through the following links.)

Amazon (Paperback) / Amazon (Kindle) / Barnes & Noble (epub) / Kobo (e-book)

OneMoreDay_Cover-blog

At the end of the post, I’ll announce the seven winners of my clock charm bookmark giveaway, ooh-ah! But first, a brief Q&A with the author of the anthology’s closing piece, “A Morrow More”. You’ve seen her around here plenty of times before; something about this being her blog. X) Take it away, Danielle E. Shipley, a.k.a. me!

How did you hear about the “One More Day” anthology contest, and what prompted you to submit?

Danielle: Somebody, somewhere, mentioned it in a blog. (I wish I could remember who and where!) The premise sounded workable – (Time stands still, eh?, I thought. That could go in any number of interesting directions…) – and I didn’t happen to be in the middle of any big, time-consuming projects on a looming deadline, so I started fiddling with ideas, and “A Morrow More” was born.

Is this your first published story? (If not, what was?)

Danielle: I believe my first publication happy dance accompanied the inclusion of my “The Swan Prince” companion flash piece “Still Broken” in online women’s speculative fiction magazine Luna Station Quarterly. It didn’t come with monetary compensation (though I believe LSQ has subsequently begun a fund for its contributors), but that first taste of authorial legitimacy is priceless all by itself. If we’re talking non-self-published works with royalties, though, then yep, this is my first. (:

Which of the characters in your story was your favorite? Who was the easiest to write? What about the hardest?

Danielle: For favorite, probably Lorrel, part-Inkborn son of the king. I enjoyed working with the narrator, Raeve, but, well, she’s not a rather attractive prince, is she? She also might qualify as the hardest to write, if only because she had to do most of the story’s talking. As for the easiest to write, that honor may go to the great Morrow More for whom the tale is titled.

If you’d been in the place of your story’s main character, how do you suppose you would have handled their situation?

Danielle: Not nearly as bravely, I don’t think. I mean, I might have ended up performing more or less the same actions as Raeve, but I’d have been a wreck at least for the first while, as my overactive imagination dreamed up reasons for time’s freeze, each explanation more terrifying than the last. I expect the encounter on the mountaintop would have gone differently, since I understand the Morrow More’s way of thinking better than Raeve did. As for the ending… yeah, I don’t know how Raeve stays so even-keeled. I predict further wreckhood on my part.

Besides your own, which of the anthology stories is your personal favorite, and why?

Danielle: Although it’s a tight race between my ultimate pick and L.S. Murphy’s “The Thirteenth Month”, I’ve got to go with Kimberly Kay’s “Sleepless Beauty”. I don’t know if you could tell by my Wilderhark Tales, but I’m a total sucker for a sweet and humorous fairy tale.

If you could read only One More Book before some tragic turn of events prevented your ability to ever read another word, which book would you choose, and why?

Danielle: Um, first of all, this is a special level of cruel. Like, for real. I’ve clearly got a black and twisted mind to have even concocted such a question. Second of all, I would probably end up choosing my second favorite Robin Hood retelling of all time, Robin McKinley’s “The Outlaws of Sherwood”. (Why not read my first favorite? Because I wrote it, and so am a mite closer to knowing the tale word for word.)

If you could listen to only one piece of music for a year (though at least you’re allowed to replay it as many times as you like), which song would you pick?

Danielle: Let’s go with the original Broadway cast recording of “Dancing Through Life” from “Wicked”. It makes me happy, and gosh knows I’ll need that, since I won’t have access to any of my other favorite songs for a year.

You’ve got One More Chance to say anything you like to the good folks reading this interview before its end. What’ll it be?

Danielle: I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to read a little more about the assemblage of authors behind the “One More Day” anthology. If you haven’t read the book itself yet, I’ll be candid: I would like you to. And with such a variety of voices inside, the chances of your enjoying it are high. (:

“Stage Fright” … or an Interview with its Author, Anyway!

The “One More Day” blog tour has come to an end, but the fun’s not over yet! For one thing, the anthology is still totally available. ;D (Have you bought yourself a copy yet? ^^)

OneMoreDay_Cover-blog

And for another, my series of interviews with each of the authors who contributed a tale to the book continues! Let’s hear it today for Erika Beebe, scribe of the anthology’s sixth story, “Stage Fright”.

Hello, Erika! Tell us: How did you hear about the “One More Day” anthology contest, and what prompted you to submit?

Erika: J. Keller Ford and I met through various blog hopping. She’s been a beta reader to my YA novel I’ve had in the works for some time. She pointed me to the contest and encouraged me to try even though I was knee deep in my novel. I didn’t think I could switch characters. It’s difficult enough to track one in your head at a time, but I let go of my doubts and set my novel aside. I analyzed J. Taylor’s theme and thought about all the moments in my life where time could have potentially stopped. I had never scored the lead in a musical or a play in high school, but I did remember reciting a giant passage from Romeo and Juliet my freshman year in front of the entire class. I got lost in the words and the feelings, trying to experience Juliet’s emotion. I also tried to make it my own. The problem? I remember the teacher smiling at me, pulling me aside after class and telling me if I remembered hugging myself and rocking myself through the whole dialogue. 🙂

Is this your first published story? (If not, what was?)

Erika: Yes, it is, and I’m hoping it won’t be the last. 🙂

Which of the characters in your story was your favorite? Who was the easiest to write? What about the hardest?

Erika: Hannah is definitely my favorite. I poured some of my own hopes and dreams into her internal chaos. I don’t think any of my characters were difficult to write. Sometimes the feel of the dialogue can be a bit of a challenge, but music helps me differentiate thought and feeling between the characters.

If you’d been in the place of your story’s main character, how do you suppose you would have handled their situation?

Erika: I am hoping the same way as Hannah did. 🙂 Try to make friends until it’s impossible. Then face the truth. Realize you only do your best and be you.

Besides your own, which of the anthology stories is your personal favorite, and why?

Erika: Anna Simpson’s Time Piece. I like the pace and I love the plot. Anna can craft a mean plot and I couldn’t put the book down.

If you could read only One More Book before some tragic turn of events prevented your ability to ever read another word, which book would you choose, and why?

Erika: This is a hard question to ask as I gravitate to many different books for different reasons. I suppose I would pick the second book in the Angel Burn series, Angel Fire, by L.A. Weatherly. I’d accidentally checked it out from the library thinking it was the first book in the series, but I became involved so quickly and wrapped up in the worlds of her different characters, I read it cover to cover. I love angel stories. I loved the complicated twist in Weatherly’s depiction of angels. She is also a great writer of hope, and I hung on, because her characters refused to give up.

If you could listen to only one piece of music for a year (though at least you’re allowed to replay it as many times as you like), which song would you pick?

Erika: Tricky question as my songs vary with my mood. I will pick the song I listened to nonstop while writing Stage Fright to capture my character’s emotion: Kelly Clarkson’s, Catch My Breath.

You’ve got One More Chance to say anything you like to the good folks reading this interview before its end. What’ll it be?

Erika: It’s been a privilege to visit Danielle’s blog. Thank you for taking the time to read this post and be a part of our exciting anthology, One More Day.
