“Jack Munroe does not trust the ‘feel good’ society promoted by Earth’s Unity government. So when an Alien spaceship shows up in the distant Kuiper Belt of the solar system, he’s suspicious. His studies in evolutionary biology have taught him that colorful animals outfitted with talons, claws and shark-teeth can be dangerous. So when Aliens show up speaking English and demanding a “chat” with his fellow crewmates, he argues for getting the heck away from these dangerous-looking Aliens. His ship’s captain disagrees and four Humans die during Earth’s First Contact. Jack is determined that Humans will never become serfs to Aliens. And if someone has to die to make space safe…

The Power of Spirit

The young girl lay curled up in the cupboard where the uncle locked her until he was ready to use her to sate his lust.

This had been happening for many months. Her mother had left the family and the children had been sent to different relatives to be cared for. Unfortunately for the girl she got the worst possible place to be.

Each time he took her, she let her Spirit drift from her small body and watched from above as he brutalized her. She had always had this ability, only now it helped her to survive.

Suddenly she heard his heavy plodding feet. He was a big bull of a man. She cringed against the wall as the bolt shot back and he…

What is your latest release and what genre is it? My latest release is Firebound, book two in the Spellbringers Series. It falls under the young adult paranormal romance heading.

Quick description: The story follows two main characters—Rachel and Alisa. Alisa is an ordinary human, but her best friend and boyfriend are both Spellbringers (wielders of magic). She struggles with feelings of inferiority, and at the same time, fights to maintain a sense of independence as her relationship with her boyfriend progresses and becomes more serious.

The Questions:

(From authors)

WHY should I promote other authors and their books on MY blog when I can’t even get LOTS of people to buy and review MY book(s)?

(From Readers & Bloggers)

WHY would authors (read demi-gods) who are way above me in the hierarchy of intelligence levels possibly want to send their articles to ME – a lowly Reader and Blogger?

(From existing Author / Books Bloggers)

I ALREADY have a good system going so WHY should I even CONSIDER changing it?

THE CLINIC

Dr. David Reynolds threw the paperwork down on his desk in disgust. This was the third mal-practice suit this month. One more and the board members were going to jerk his license.

He stood up, pulled a cigarette out of his desk drawer and lit up, while pouring a shot of bourbon into his coffee cup. He went to the window and stared out at the posh landscape. Palm trees swayed, as if on cue, and Reynolds could see the setting sun paint the ocean’s waves in palettes of scarlet and gold.

He was fuming and frankly, frightened. The lease on this office space alone was over fifty thousand dollars a month. The support staff’s salary was another seventy-five grand…

Book signing before the dive

I harp on all the time about seizing the day and grabbing opportunities yet when I was invited to dive with sharks at Blue Planet Aquarium (which is pivotal to the plot in Three Little Birds) I politely declined. Sitting in a very large aquarium with toothy creatures from the deep was not on my personal Carpe Diem list. After further cogitation (gosh that’s a big word for me to use), I changed my mind. Here was an opportunity to do something incredibly exciting. I was a fool to disregard it. My involvement with the Backup Trust cemented the deal. I would get sponsorship for the dive and raise some awareness and funds for the charity who help support people with spinal cord injury.
