And now, my special Bookanista interview with Heather McCorkle 

About the Book: Channeler's Choice, sequel to The Secret Of Spruce Knoll. (Can be found on Goodreads here:) 
  • Give me the blurb for the book in 140 characters or less:    Eren must decide, be a normal teenager and leave the legendary warrior stuff to someone else, or embrace a dark destiny. 

  • Do you have a fav character and why?   I love them all, truly. If I had to choose it would be Fane though. His innocence, love of all things American, and curiosity are beyond fun. 
  • What do you hope readers will get from your book?    First and foremost I hope readers will get a great read. But one of the underlying things I hope they'll get out of it is that we can change our world and everything we do affects it. 
About the Author:
  • What inspires you?    Everything! Art, music, movies, pretty much anything creative. 
  • Hardest aspect of writing? Best?  The hardest part of writing is finding the time not only to write, but to work on improving one's writing. Which is super important to me. The best part is seeing my characters and worlds come alive and having someone else enjoy them. 
  • Who is your writing hero?    That's tough, I have so many. My very first writing hero was Robert E. Howard, the creator of Conan. Bet you wouldn't have guessed that one. ;)
  • Randomness:
o   Sweet or salty? Yes!
o   Beach or mountains? Yes! LOL, I love everything outdoors, swimming, snowboarding, hiking, you name it!
o   Online or in person? I love my online friends more than I can ever express but I'd love even more to meet them in person, so I'll have to say in person.
o   Ebook or print? Print, I don't even own an ereader.

 About the Future:
  • What’s next for you?    I'm currently working on the third book in the channeler series. After that hopefully you'll see a bit of epic fantasy from me in 2013. 
  • One outrageous goal for the future?   To raise $10,000 for my favorite charity that protects endangered species. A portion of the sales of The Secret Of Spruce Knoll (in every format) goes toward that goal. 

Thanks Heather for being with us today! Love your goal - and I am pretty sure you'll achieve that one.

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
