#ASI: Jaden Sinclair

Where are you from?  Kansas

How many books have you written? 34

Which is your favorite? The bloodmate books are my favorite right now

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? I think I was about 13. Use to make up things all the time and started hand writing things down here and there. Soon after just sort hit me that I really like it, so took typing as soon as I could and kept right on writing.

What are your current projects?  I have many projects going. Currently I have some self-publishing things going on, a partnership started with the name TJ Black, and then things for my publisher as well. Guess you can say, about three titles are being worked on.

What inspired you to write your first book?  I read a werewolf story that just grabbed me. Ended up reading it several times in fact before sitting down and trying to write up my own. And I also wanted it to be nothing like any wolf stories I’ve read before. That book ended up being my first Shifter story, and also got me into my very first publisher.

What book are you reading now? At the moment, none, but have three that are waiting for me. Only thing is, once I pick it up nothing else is going to get done.

Do you ever experience writer’s block? Yes I do.

What is one random thing about you? I knit

What does your writing process look like? Sometimes that depends on the day.  I’ve been a stay home mom for 14 years, so there are some days I might not get on the computer until afternoon, depending on what has to be done at home.

How important are names to you in your books? For me, the right name is important for the right person in the story. And I like different names also, so always looking for them. If I hear one, I always write it down for later on.

Do you read your reviews? Do you respond to them, good or bad? I do read them, but never have respond to them.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?  I can’t do mysteries. Not sure why, just unable to write one.

What is your favorite book and why? I don’t think I have one really

If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it have been and why?

Do you have any advice for other writers? Don’t give up. You want it, then go and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do it.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Just relaxing if I can. I’m either on the go with my boys and their sports, playing catch up in house, or writing. So if I get a chance to nothing I take it.

How can readers discover more about you and you work? My website I try to update.

Snail Mail Movement

Zoe Ambler - Author

letter-writing

So, I am laid up with a broken and fractured foot, the weather is either hot and humid with the random tornado, or freezing cold. Its all Patricias fault.

And speaking of my dear friend, it got me thinking. I really do get tired of staring at this computer screen day in and day out. Sure, email is quick and easy.

But actual letter writing is a dying artform. I write back and forth with Patricia through both email and snail mail. I love the snail mail. I get cute cards and pretty stationary. Yes, my handwriting is comparable with that of a serial killer, but hey, its the thought that counts.

So, as a request to you lovely  followers, in my time of healing, I was wondering if any of you would also like to be snail mail buddies? Please?

If interested, and to keep your privacy, you can…

I May Not Tell You I Love You

Author -Carole Parkes

I May Not Tell You I Love You

 Carole Parkes

I may not tell you I love you

Perfect husband of many years,

But you see the peaceful calm we have

And also the lack of tears.

 

I may not tell you I love you

Precious children who are now grown,

Yet you knew it from my behaviour

The same way you treat your own.

 

I cannot tell you I love you

My dear parents sadly deceased,

Yet, you knew it from the care I gave

That my loving never ceased.

 

I may not tell you I love you

But you all know it in your hearts,

The  fond memories you relate,

proof enough when the chatting starts.

How to Deepen Your Worldbuilding

A Writer's Path

mountains-962793_640

By Cecilia Lewis

Setting and worldbuilding are critical aspects of your novel. Having a vivid setting can pull readers into your story and bring it to life, and unique worldbuilding is often what sets a book apart. In editing both my clients’ books and my own, I find that establishing the setting is an underdeveloped or underused skill for many writers. I often work with my clients to strengthen the setting details in their works, and I also work consciously on establishing the setting and worldbuilding in my own writing.

Duck, Duck, Noose Release Date!

Hi friends! Just wanted to make a quick announcement. I’ve finally set the release date for “Duck, Duck, Noose” (Bitter Ashes #4). Drumroll please….February 16th! Okay, so yeah, that’s only ten days from now. I’m not a great planner. Anywho, here’s a little chapter one teaser, written from Sophie’s view (she gets a few little scenes all to herself in this one):

Chapter One

“Are you telling me I’m stuck here with you?” Sophie growled.

James frowned. “I’m telling you that everyone else has disappeared. Those creatures are standing in there like statues, just waiting. They won’t talk to me.”

“The Norns,” Sophie mumbled as she rose to her feet. Whatever the Norns had done had knocked her to the ground. By the time she’d regained enough composure to look behind her, Alaric and Madeline were gone. As far as James was saying, Mikael was gone too, leaving her only…

Lady Fate

Poetry

Once I tried to tame the nomad within my blood,
little did I know, Fate had a pitying smirk for me
on her stoic face but I, a gambler too, the kind
that played with a smirk of their own at ruthless life,
had become too well versed in losing all by then!
   

No, I did not cry, not with visible tears at least,
rather felt like a cloud which had outwept its rain,
heading back to its equatorial home, the sea
to become darker and swollen with mist again
and retrace another route to a thunderstorm!
   

Can a compulsive nomad ever build a home,
be it with four walls or around another soul,
lady Fate’s own wanderer, who has always been
a loner walking on the lonely path of life!
    

Once I tried to send my dreams to a mountain top,
covered with cherry blossoms as…
