Special Thanks - to EVERYONE!

I have struggled for the past week with exactly how to express my feelings.  This is bad when you are a writer: loss of words syndrome.  How in the world could I properly articulate my gratitude, appreciation and utter awe to all my fans?  
Fans.
After rising to the top in sales on Amazon, it finally dawned on me that is exactly what I have: fans.  The enormity of that one little word settled over my soul this weekend, causing me to lapse into silence, which, if you know me and my ramblings, is quite a feat!  In less than nine months since submitting Accountable to None as an ebook on Amazon, my life has completely changed.
ALL because of you, dear readers!  
My little story, unedited and created as a writing project for a Creative Writing course, has soared way beyond even my wildest dreams.  Each and every review, the good, the bad and the ugly, made my heart beat faster with excitement.  A few wonderful people even went a step further and "friended" me on Facebook and wrote l…

Author Spotlight: Lawrence Fisher

I am pleased to offer the following interview of one of the funniest people I have met in a long time....Lawrence Fisher.  His tongue-in-cheek humor resounds in his novel, Kill Me Now!





1. What kind of books do you write and how many have you written so far?
I write about the humor of dating. You get into a situation and instead of getting hurt you laugh it off. I have written four books in the trilogy. Oh wait., I am dreaming again.
2.  When is your next book being published?
Two months after it is written. The hardest part about being an author is that you have to write. I tried dictating to my computer so that she could type it up, but the stupid thing kept getting typos. Spock never had these problems when he spoke to his computer. I am doing research for the sequel. Are there any volunteers out there who want to be in the sequel?

3.  When did you start writing?
When I was three! I picked up a pencil and started writing hieroglyphics. I was so far advanced in my language skills that do t…

1. What kind of books do you write and how many have you written so far?
I have written four books so far with three being science fiction and the last is a children’s picture book. My first book which started out as Journey to the Edge was reworked and released as Soleri which won the Books and Authors.net Science Fiction – reworked for 2010. I then wrote Guardian’s Alliance. Both Soleri and Guardian’s are YA. The other science fiction is my award winner, Deep Screams. It has won Books and Authors.net’s Best Science Fiction for 2011. The fourth book is called SQUAZLES!. It is a children’s picture book about not judging others by how they appear.

*Ramble on*

Whew!  The last month has been a whirlwind of excitement for me; so much so that I truly could not find the time to even post about Thanksgiving.  Sorry, Pilgrims, but at least I enjoyed all the traditional foods and most importantly, my family!
(And no, I did NOT make that - unless you consider 'cut and paste' from Google "making it!" Of course, those of you that know me personally were already well aware of that, since I am a woman of many talents, but cooking is sadly not one of them!) 
Now here it is, the middle of December and my book blog tour is in full swing.  If you would have told me six months ago that this is what

1. What kind of books do you write and how many have you written so far?
I've written one book so far.   My first book, "Pretty Flamingo" would probably be considered a Romance/Drama, although there is an element of mystery to it, as well.  I have ideas for two other books - - one of which I am working on now - - neither of which fit into the category of my first book, so I may have to invent a category for my books. 2.  When is your next book being published?
I'm not sure but probably late next year - - 2012.  Rig…

Merry Christmas everyone!  If you are looking for a great book to buy that special someone, look no further!

I present, Penelope Crowe!


What kind of books do you write and how many have you written so far?
I write dark fiction and a bit of horror as Penelope Crowe, and kid’s books as Dea Lenihan.  This way I don’t have to worry about selling to children after I write about murder and blood.  I have 2 books published, a short story, and another short story called The Key to Happiness that just got accepted into a horror anthology called Vampires! For Dark Moon Digest, so I was celebrating today.
When is your next book being published?
My next book is called Penelope’s Garden and although I thought it would be out before Christmas,  January looks like the date now.  It is book two of the Out of This World Series.
When did you start writing, and what inspires you the most?
I have always written.  I wrote The Littlest Grape and The Haunted House when I was about six.  I was positive they were t…
