Hi Craig, yesterday's launch day of 'Winter', the second in the series, must have been an exciting day for you. I hope that you and your family are safe and well. Because of the lockdown, I am getting lots of writing done and I am sure you are too. What made you want to write a book?

"I had not intended to write a book, but the chance came when I least expected it… I wrote the prologue over a coffee, on my mobile, in a café of my home town of Chesterfield. I was feeling a bit low, as I’d just broken my finger (a story for another time) and was reduced to using one hand. There wasn’t much point in buying the new keyboard I wanted…

The initial idea was just to create the blank canvas for a potential story; I had no idea where it would go. It soon became apparent though, that I couldn’t write what was developing on a mobile – I needed a PC. I had lost my work one when I was laid off. Within the first few chapters, I had decided on the story structure and the genres it would touch on – there are several – but that is secondary to the plot and characters involved. What made them who they are – and why they do what they do. ‘Less is more’ is my guiding light for all matters involving creative work.

Palimpsest, and now Winter, are the first two books in the MDS series. MDS stands for Multi Dimensional State. In Palimpsest, from an apparent everyday scenario, the central character is thrown into a situation where they have to deal with the extraordinary implications of inadvertently accessing the Multiverse highway – the route to accessing the infinite universes that coexist with our own. She is introduced to unfamiliar and familiar individuals, possessing potent abilities, the hidden dangers that involves, their malicious objectives, and the implications of accessing this reality.

In 'Winter', the story develops further into the realms of the true implications of the multiverse.

My current WIP is the first in a different series – the Caretaker Chronicles – which is scheduled for release next year. This will appeal to those with an interest in alien intervention, with a twist.

Initially I was relying on my website – craigherdern.com – and twitter @CraigHerdern for promotion. I am now utilising the excellent team at PublishingPush.com

Palimpsest can be obtained from Amazon, Smashwords, Apple books, Barnes & Noble, Scribd, Kobo, Overdrive, Baker & Taylor Axis 360, Tolino, Gardners and all others distributed by Smashwords distribution network.

You can get a copy of my books here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?i=digital-text&rh=p_27%3ACraig+Herdern&s=relevancerank&text=Craig+Herdern&ref=dp_byline_sr_ebooks_1 "

Thanks Craig for being my guest today, I am sure that there are lots of readers out there with time on their hands at the moment and I am sure that they will enjoy your exciting series.

All the best

Hi Ros, how are you doing?

"Hello Natasha,

I'm a quiet reserved recluse. For decades, I was the leader of many educated talented

and committed people. Writing the novel was a long well-deserved vacation for my mind.

I live on an unspoiled coastline where dolphins and manatees cavort. Magnificent eagles

occasionally soar overhead and hummingbirds dart around the flower garden.

Flying squirrels sit in my hand and eat sunflower chips.

I wrote a novel (Eagle Fangs) some years ago as a warm-up for Night Shadow's Son.

It was a challenge to teach myself how to use several software programs, learn about

how to publish a novel (e.g. What the heck is metadata?) and tune up my research skills.

I used Google Earth to pinpoint locations where the story took place. I'm not working on

anything right now. Perhaps one day an idea will inspire me to write something else.

I don't market my books. A dozen libraries have added my work to their collection.

Libraries offer "author chats" which allow local authors to meet with potential readers.

I always provide free copies to everyone. I created brochures a few local bookstores distribute.

The attachment is the outside/inside of a trifold brochure."

Thanks Ross.

Hopefully, you are far away from the horrid COVID-19

Stay safe, Natasha :)

If you are self isolating then you might be interested in reading something new.

Ross' books are available on Amazon.

A young woman becomes a spy for the French Resistance during WWII. She operates alone and unafraid deep behind enemy lines. The Night Shadow, as she is called by British intelligence, gathers vital intelligence for the Allies. A twist of fate brings her and an infant together. She joins a traveling circus after the war and raises the child has her own. The boy demonstrates amazing, inexplicable abilities. An Oxford professor discovers the young man and together they return to England. The young man's physical and mental prowess astounds and amazes everyone. The world's superpowers teeter on the brink of global nuclear war. The young man embarks on an impossible mission to prevent the imminent war. A professor sets off on quest to find out who the young man's parents are. The novel has a thunderclap ending. The story spans decades and sweeps across a continent. It skips from one adventure to another. The work weaves fiction into historically-accurate world events.

A warm welcome to you Douglas. I hope you are well and are coping and doing ok in these troubled times. Writing and reading forms a much wanted escape from everyday life. Please let everyone know about your writing journey.

Bonjour Natasha

What made you want to write a book?

I’ve been tinkering with writing for many years. Because of my theatre background my natural inclination was to write plays. Co-incidentally not long after my divorce from 20 years of marriage I suddenly had time on my hands. I wrote three or four plays. Luckily I was able to have two of them workshopped, but neither were produced. It’s very difficult to get a play produced, especially a new one by an unknown playwright. At that point I stopped writing plays and started writing short stories. I sent several out to literary magazines, but none were published. You really have to have thick skin to be a writer.

Seven years ago I retired from my day job and left my home in Manhattan and moved to Paris. But even at that point I hadn’t decided to start writing books. I’d been in Paris for a year mostly as a tourist and decided to take a trip to Morocco. It was there, inspired by the Mediterranean Sea, that I began my first novel, Montmartre Stairs: A Paris Love Story. For some reason, that I haven’t bothered to analysis, it was easier for me to write about Paris after leaving. For a year after finishing the book I tried to find an agent. Finally I checked out publishing on Amazon. It was fast and relatively easy, so that’s what I did. I continue to use Amazon. To answer your question, one day while walking along the beach I said to myself, ‘you’ve always wanted to write a novel, so now’s the time.’ I’m currently working on my sixth novel titled 'The Trickster'. It’s due to be released this November.

Tell us about you and where you live.

As mentioned, I gave up my apartment in Manhattan in the theatre district and moved to Paris. My friends thought I was nuts, but now after seven years they’re very jealous. I haven’t spent the entire seven years in Paris though. I was in Morocco for three months and also visited Ireland, England, Italy, Spain and Albania. After those trips I’ve always returned to Paris, where I live now. In September I plan to spend a few months in the south of France staying in a small village near Carcassonne. I’m certain I’ll always return to Paris, if only for visits.

How do you market your books and do your promotion methods work?

I have tried many different ways of promoting my books including on Facebook and Instagram. I regularly write asking for reviews, particularly from those interested in independently published books. But by far the most effective marketing so far has been offering some of my books for free on Amazon. I also have an author’s page on Amazon. Here’s the link:

Douglas Warren Author

I have written one non-fiction book: 'How To Retire In France'. The book is written for Americans primarily. It’s focused in on the visa process. One can live in France a year at a time by obtaining a Visitors Visa. It’s also renewable. I had an arduous time getting my first visa, even with the help of a lawyer, so I thought it would be a good subject for helping others. I had a hunch the book would do well, and it has. Although I can’t prove it, I believe the book has helped to stimulate the sale of my fiction works. I’m always on the lookout for ways of promoting my books, including this type of interview.

Thank you Douglas and I am sure that your new book, due out shortly, will be a great sucess.

If you would like a review copy of Douglas' new book, leave a comment below and I am sure that Douglas will be in contact soon.

Today my guest is Australian writer Ivan Rudolph. Welcome to my blog Ivan :)

Hey Natasha! Thank you so much for the opportunity to post an interview! Your support of a fellow author in distant Australia is much appreciated.

It is a pleasure, please let everyone know about your writing journey.

1. What made you want to write a book?

Born in Africa in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) I lived a carefree and adventurous life as a youth.

Trapped inside the house as a frustrated child one wet school vacation, in the years before TV, I idly picked up a cowboy book. Very young and barely able to read yet and guessing at all the long words, images and scenes appeared, like magic, in my imagination. I was hooked and began to devour books!

I later won a competition writing about the rocks I discovered while hitch-hiking in Africa. I discovered I liked writing, which encouraged me to write more – and my interest in rocks and Science resulted in London University studies in Geology and Chemistry. I met, courted and married the love of my life, Brenda, while there.

Later on, with a young family and seeing no secure future for our children in Africa, we emigrated to Australia and love it here – super people, vast open scenery, brilliant climate.

Ironically, it has been a long time now since I read a book voluntarily from cover to cover. You see, I now write non-fiction and there are months of research that go into each chapter, sometimes days into a single page. Nevertheless, remembering my youthful struggles to comprehend the long words and complex sentence structures, I keep my text simple and accessible.

2. Tell us about you and where you live.

Brenda and I have now retired to the beautiful Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia – and feel very spoilt. We were previously happy living high up on a picturesque inland plateau, but our kids told us: “Mum and Dad, if you continue living here, we will visit you from time to time – but if you retire to the coast, we will visit you more often!” And they do!

3. What have you written?

My 13 books (see ivanrudolph.com) include a children’s book and a novel, which were both a joy to write, quick and easy, because no travelling nor research was needed! The others, unfortunately, are non-fiction and range from a rescued alcoholic (turned into a movie) and John Flynn, the hero who “invented” and then developed the very first Flying Doctor Service in the world, which became the prototype for those that followed internationally. He overcame impossible odds to do so, and I have recently signed a contract for the book to be turned into another movie. Other historical figures, including heroines of the Australian Outback, have consumed much of my writing.

A strange phenomenon experienced by my secular father, a near death experience or NDE, gave birth after 40 years of interviews and study to my “Living Beyond: Making Sense of Near Death Experiences”. Thankfully, this book has helped many others to come to terms with what happened to them during an NDE, and to now comprehend and deal successfully with the issues and problems that faced them on return to life on earth. My latest book is a follow-on titled “Your Origin and Destiny” and broadens the NDE studies into a “whole existence and why” exploration applicable to every one of us.

4. How do you market your books and do your promotion methods work?

I hate marketing books, and my methods are pretty hopeless! You see, until very recently, I left marketing up to the publisher in Africa or Australia, who would arrange a few interviews and even book reviews and perhaps a newspaper article or two. I was always into my next book and did not take much notice – it was in the publisher’s interest to market the book successfully and I could safely leave most of that side alone. However, times have changed and a lot is now left up to the author, who has far less time to write and hone his craft – and it shows!

5. Where can readers find your book for sale?

My latest book “Your Origin and Destiny” is on Netgalley at http://netgal.ly/4e8yxT and the previous one I mentioned “Living Beyond: Making Sense of Near Death Experiences” is also on Netgalley at http://netgal.ly/Xa6Hx2 .

Otherwise, most my earlier books are available by checking out my website at ivanrudolph.com or through the usual channels at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple, Google, OverDrive (eBook library market) and Ingram (print library and bookstore market)

Thank you Ivan for sharing.

Keep in touch

Hello Tamara and welcome back Alistair. What is it like to write together and where has your writing journey taken you?

1. What made you want to write a book?

It wasn’t a matter of thinking, “I’d like to write a book,” for either of us. We were born knowing that this was what we wanted to do, and even before we were putting pen to paper, we were telling stories, creating characters, and inventing new, exciting worlds. For us, writing is in the genes.

2. Tell us about you and where you live.

We both live in the western U.S. and love our cats. On weekends you might find one or both of us taking long drives, strolling through museums, or checking out mountains, oceans, deserts, or historical monuments for places that just might make good locales to set our next book. More often, you’ll find us cozied up with our cats watching good horror movies.

3. What have you written and what are you working on now?

Collaboratively, we have completed six novels: The Cliffhouse Haunting, Mother, Darling Girls, and three Ravencrest Saga novels: The Ghosts of Ravencrest, The Witches of Ravencrest, and our newest, Exorcism.

Separately, Alistair has written two Vampires of Crimson Cove novels: The Crimson Corset and The Silver Dagger. He’s also written Sleep Savannah Sleep, The Angel Alejandro, and The Book of Strange Persuasions.

Tamara’s newest novel is Brimstone. She has also written other bestsellers including Haunted, Moonfall, Eternity, Thunder Road, and The Sorority.

Alistair’s next solo release will be the third Vampires of Crimson Cove novel, due out later this year. Tamara’s next paranormal thriller will also appear in 2020. Their next collaborative novels will be a thriller, Spite House, due out later this year, and the fourth Ravencrest Saga novel. Many more books are planned.

4. How do you market your books and do your promotion methods work?

We’re much better at writing books than marketing them, so we rely on our publicist to do marketing and promotion. Berlin Malcom sees to it that our websites are up-to-date and that we have a presence on social networks. Most importantly, she presents us with interviews and makes sure we pull our heads out of our books to talk about them now and then.

5. Where can readers find your book for sale?

The best places to find out about us is at our websites, tamarathorne.com and alistaircross.com. All our books - and information about them are listed there. You can always find our books on amazon.com, too.

Thank you for sharing this with everyone Tamara and Alistair

Hello Chris, from across the pond, I am so glad that you can be with me today. Please share with us all your words of wisdom about being an author and about your writing journey.

1. What made you want to write a book?

It was back in 1987 when my brother-in-law dared me to write a book. At that time I was becoming a fervent visitor of liquidation sales, yard, tag and garage sales as well as visiting and buying spaces in indoor and outdoor swap meets. He said he'd never seen someone so involved in private sales and secondhand purchases before, and that I certainly knew what I was doing. Garage Sale Mania ended up being the first non-fiction book on the subject and it sold right away to a medium-sized publisher. It became a bestseller in its own right. I'm sure that was the start of my book writing career and I haven't stopped since. Now I write from inspiration and not dares or prodding. Of course, everything now is fiction.

2. Tell us about you and where you live.

I was born in Los Angeles and raised on the beaches of Southern California. It was only until 2009 when I moved in with my twin sister that I relocated in Sylvania, Alabama. It was quite a culture shock to go from the concrete jungle, of sorts, to the the wide expanse of rural living, surrounded by heavy brush and forests. I'm still not a full-blown deep-south resident in heart, but I've enjoyed the transition. I truly live in a "holler" at the bottom of a ravine.

3. What have you written and what are you working on now?

I've written and published 13 books, mostly fiction in various genres, which appear on Amazon. Among those genres are SiFi, YA distopian and fantasy, adult thrillers, paranormal, military espionage, erotic romance and supernatural. I've adopted the pen name Christy J. Breedlove to write all my young adult fiction. I'm currently working on last edits of book number 2 in the Screamcatcher series, which has the sub-title Dream Chasers. Book 3 of the series will come out in the Summer, finishing up the trilogy.

4. How did you come up with the idea of your latest book Screamcatcher: Web World?

It all started with a dream catcher. This iconic item, which is rightfully ingrained in Indian lore, is a dream symbol respected by the culture that created it. It is mystifying, an enigma that that prods the imagination. Legends about the dream catcher are passed down from multiple tribes. There are variations, but the one fact that can be agreed upon is that it is a nightmare entrapment device, designed to sift through evil thoughts and images and only allow pleasant and peaceful dreams to enter into consciousness of the sleeper.

I wondered what would happen to a very ancient dream catcher that was topped off with dreams and nightmares. What if the nightmares became too sick or deathly? What if the web strings could not hold anymore visions? Would the dream catcher melt, burst, vanish, implode? I reasoned that something would have to give if too much evil was allowed to congregate inside of its structure. I found nothing on the Internet that offered a solution to this problem—I might have missed a relevant story, but nothing stood out to me. Stephen King had a story called Dream Catcher, but I found nothing in it that was similar to what I had in mind. So I took it upon myself to answer such a burning question. Like too much death on a battlefield could inundate the immediate location with lost and angry spirits, so could a dream catcher hold no more of its fill of sheer terror without morphing into something else, or opening up a lost and forbidden existence. What would it be like to be caught up in another world inside the webs of a dream catcher, and how would you get out? What would this world look like? How could it be navigated? What was the source of the exit, and what was inside of it that threatened your existence? Screamcatcher: Web World, the first in the series, was my answer. I can only hope that I have done it justice.

5. How do you market your books and do your promotion methods work?

My promotion methods are intense. As of late, I've submitted over 1,650 book review packages to listed reviewers. All of my pitch letters were personally written after having read the bios and guidelines of the review sources. I've received over 160 requests for the book and I'm currently stacking up the reviews on Amazon. I also announce the book on FB, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, GoodReads, AllAuthor, Author's Den, Kindle Cafe, Reddit, and numerous other display sites and writing groups.

I have a promotion manager who uses all of her contacts to get the word out. I have used paid ads many times, and I have to be careful about which ones are productive and those that pay dividends. Many of my promotion methods work, but you have to remember how difficult it is today with the increased number of titles that are now available. You have to be persistent and positive about branding your name and getting any exposure at all. Just recently, I've approached producers and directors for a book-to-movie deal, and have one actress who is interested in being attached to the project.

6. Where can readers find your book for sale?

Here is my Amazon Page: https://www.amazon.com/Chris-Harold-Stevenson/e/B001K8UUBK

Thank you Chris, I am amazed at the amount of review request you have sent out. I really hope that your hard work pays off and you get lots of lovely reviews.

All the best

Natasha :)

My guest today is Faye Rapoport DesPres her new book Tribbs: The Very Handsome Cat (Writers Coffee Bar Press), book 2 in the Stray Cat Stories children’s book series, will be released on February 20, 2020. The heartwarming book with its charming illustrations is based on the true story of a stray cat who was found on the streets of New York and adopted, after a long wait, into a happy home.

Tribbs: The Very Handsome Cat is authored by Faye Rapoport DesPres and illustrated by Laurel McKinstry Petersen. DesPres donates a portion of the proceeds from her children’s books to non-profit animal rescue organizations. In the following interview, she answers questions about her life, her love for animals, and writing and marketing her books.

Hi Faye, I am glad that you can join me today. Please share with everyone your writing journey.

What made you want to write a book?

I started writing poetry and stories when I was a child, and I pursued writing as a journalist and public relations writer for environmental organizations early in my career. I kept up my interest in poetry by taking courses for a while, but eventually I focused more on journalism and marketing writing, because I had to pay the bills. I had been working as a professional writer for quite a few years when I had a health scare at 41 — a panic attack that felt as if I was having a heart attack. In the few moments when I thought something was really wrong, one of the thoughts that went through my mind was, “I never wrote my book.” In that moment, I understood that creative writing and writing a book was something I needed to put back on the front burner.

I went back to school and earned an MFA in Creative Writing at the Solstice Creative Writing Program at Pine Manor College. That two-year degree helped me re-focus on reading and writing creative work. I also learned a lot about craft, because creative writing is a different skill than journalism.

I still work as a professional writer, but now I do creative writing, too.

Tell us about you and where you live.

I was born in New York City, but when I was six years old my family moved to a rural farming town in upstate New York. My love for animals started at a young age. I grew up surrounded by natural beauty, wildlife and family pets. I remember knocking on neighbors’ doors when I was 10 years old seeking signatures on a petition to outlaw leg-hold traps. I had a “Friends of Animals” patch sewed onto my jeans.

I studied English and American Literature in college and Environmental Science with a Communications and Journalism specialty in graduate school before earning my MFA. I always wanted to write about animals, wildlife, and the environment.

I now live in Cambridge, Massachusetts with my husband, Jean-Paul Des Pres, and several cats we’ve adopted from different situations. Tribbs was a real cat who lived with me for almost 20 years, and Little White still lives with us today.

What have you written and what are you working on now?

After earning my MFA, I published a number of personal essays in literary journals. I also published several short fiction stories. In 2014 I finally released my first book, Message From a Blue Jay, a memoir-in-essays published by a wonderful independent press called Buddhapuss Ink. I then turned a true story I felt would be perfect for children into my second book, Little White: The Feral Cat Who Found a Home, which is the first Stray Cat Stories children’s book. Tribbs: The Very Handsome Cat is my third book. The children’s books wouldn’t exist without the wonderful illustrator Laurel McKinstry Petersen.

I am hoping to publish a third book in the Stray Cat Stories series, and I’m currently working on another project, a fictional prose book.

How do you market your books and do your promotion methods work?

It is such a challenge to get books out into the world if you’re not a well-known author backed by one of the large publishing houses. Small, independent presses have to work hard to try to get their books in front of reviewers and bloggers. The marketing for my first book was largely handled by Buddhapuss Ink, which did a wonderful job. The owner of the press, MaryChris Bradley, is a long-time publishing pro with experience in the big houses. She happens to also be the person behind Writers Coffee Bar Press, and she edits and designs my children’s books. For the children’s books, though, I have had to do more of the marketing myself.

One of the things I’ve found very helpful is to share information about the books and the cats through Facebook pages that I help to grow through occasional Facebook ads. Little White has almost 3000 fans on her very active Facebook page.

I also hired an amazing publicist for Tribbs: The Very Handsome Cat — Deborah Bernstein. Having Deb working behind the scenes to help get the word out has been so helpful.

It’s a challenge, but I find the effort worthwhile because I am trying to help teach children (and adults) about the importance of having compassion for stray cats and other animals. Each book has its own message about love and family and life as well.

Where can readers find your books for sale?

Message From a Blue Jay and Little White: The Feral Cat Who Found a Home are available on Amazon at at Barnes and Noble online (BN.com). Tribbs: The Very Handsome Cat will be available on Amazon and at BN.com on February 20, 2020 in paperback, hardcover, and e-book formats. If readers want to support their local independent book stores, they can also walk in and ask the stores to order copies of the children’s books from Ingram.

Thanks Faye, I am sure that Tribbs will be a popular book for children.

Hi Susan, welcome to my blog, I am glad that you can join me today. Please let everyone know about your writing and marketing journey.

What made you want to write a book?

I don’t know anything specifically that lead me to writing other than an internal urge. I penned or should I say penciled my first novel, 'More Trouble for Me,' when I was about ten years old. It was complete at thirty handwritten pages.

In junior high I moved on to screenplays for movies of which I would star. My parents worried about me because I spent so much time alone in my room. I never told them I was writing. I’m sure they’d have been relieved, but I wanted to keep it a secret. (I didn’t want to have to edit content.) As I grew older, life, and more specifically boys got in the way and I buried both my writing and acting dreams. I’d nearly forgotten about them until one day while purging clutter, I came across my first novel and was inspired to realize my childhood dream.

2. Tell us about you and where you live.

I work in an IT department for a hospital by day. I’m a hipshaker and writer by night, an artist whenever possible, and an Internet addict. I live in sunny South Carolina with my teenage son and two Cairn Terriers.

3. What have you written and what are you working on now?

My YA Romance novel 'Cherokee Summer' was born while visiting the Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina. My stay prompted a memory of a serious crush I had on a Native American classmate when I was a ‘tween. For the next year I imagined what might have happened had we been older. Once the story came to me, I opened my ever-present laptop and started writing.

My current novel is a YA Paranormal Romance was written prior to Cherokee Summer. I am currently dissecting it and building it back up with an altered plot.

4. How do you market your books and do your promotion methods work?

I’m still learning. My advice to writers is to build an online presence today and nurture it. This could be on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Blogging and Vlogging are great too. Submit ARCs for review prior to publication and continue to seek reviews afterwards. I wish I’d have done more of this prior to publication.
