Confession time!

Hello readers! It’s me, Melinda, the author of Curse Breaker: Enchanted and I’ve got a confession to make. I’m addicted to audiobooks.  My ears feel naked without my headphones. I have a one-book-a-day habit. What I’m reading tends to color what I’m writing. I admit it. This habit affects my writing. Take Enchanted, the first book of the Curse Breaker Saga. I edited it while binge listening at work to Louse Penny’s Inspector Gamache books–an addictive police procedural/cozy mystery mash-up series. So Enchanted became a fantastic mystery. Book two, Faceted, is shaping up to be Tolkien shakes hands with Harry Bosch because I … Continue reading Confession time!

More Shenanigans + Free Books + 2 Giveaways

Hi there! I’m back! This is Ran, son of Sarn (the main character of Curse Breaker: Enchanted) and you’re going to vote for me so I can win the interview! Only one character will be chosen— Ran turns in his seat and tries to block the laptop screen with his small body. He hasn’t come into his power yet, but unease prickles his skin. Someone’s watching him. After closing the lid, Ran stands up and approaches a tear in the space-time continuum. Its purple edges sparkle inviting him to poke his head through. He smothers a giggle when the dimensional magic … Continue reading More Shenanigans + Free Books + 2 Giveaways

For our first official Meet The Author Monday, my Gentle Readers, I have A.M. Rycroft, whose book “Into The Darkness” I recently reviewed. That book earned Rycroft a spot in the Horror Writers Association. In the style of my previous interviews, I will put my comments/questions in BLUE and she will be GREEN. I always like to hear what introduced a writer to the literary world. Is there a specific person or event from your life that made you a reader? My mother was a big reader, like her mother before… Continue reading MTAM- A.M. Rycroft 

Characters Takeover & Offer Free Books

Hi there, I’m so glad you’re back. A lot’s happened in the last seven days and—what was that? Did you just hear a loud bang? I’d better check this out. A petite woman looks across the rows of beige cubicles to a window. A giant eye winks at her before fading out. From his vanishing talons, a sign falls but disappears when it lands on a fire truck’s roof. It says: Write my damned story; I’m tired of waiting. The computer screen goes black while she scans the office for witnesses to her runaway fantasy. Short walls block sight of … Continue reading Characters Takeover & Offer Free Books

A question + Free Books = A Personal Account

The holiday glow is gone now. All the decorations are boxed up until next year, and my thoughts turn to the empty chair at my table. The days fly by in a bitter, cold swirl of high-stress meetings where nothing’s decided, too many cups of tea, impossible deadlines and long walks by flashlight down icy streets. Gravel crunches under my boots, reminding me I’m alone. The wind whispers her last request, driving me indoors. My laptop screen flickers a morse code message from beyond the grave. And there’s not enough dark chocolate in the world to soothe the pain of my … Continue reading A question + Free Books = A Personal Account
