Author Interview: ‘Playing to Win’ by Ashlie Knapp

About the Book:

Spunky, quick-witted twenty-one year old Callie Thompson is a University of Oklahoma journalism student by day and Oklahoma City Thunder dancer by night. Callie hopes her connections with the franchise might get her foot in the door for a sports broadcasting job when she graduates. She just has one rule: never date the players.

Kyle Kelly is the deadly handsome and charmingly Southern Thunder man of the hour. All the twenty-six year old is looking for is an NBA championship to call his own. An unexpected meeting with an opinionated, feisty Callie, however, who is very unimpressed with his celebrity status, sets his sights toward winning two things: her heart AND the championship.

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

I’m a mom of two genius, beautiful children of the people variety and four of the four-legged kind – two cats and two dogs. My husband is a coach and his players are basically my children by default, so I usually have a house full of teenage softball girls. I hate mornings, mushrooms and mosquitoes. I was born and raised on a farm and learned how to drive a truck when I was eight years old. I binge watch too many episodes of Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

I’m a night owl, so I usually begin writing around ten at night and finish around twelve or twelve-thirty. The house is quiet and the words flow from my brain to my fingers. I write from the comfort of my bed and I may or may not have a cat in my lap trying to help me type and a twelve year old cocker spaniel at my feet.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

I was born and raised in Oklahoma, which is where all my books are set. I used to be a teacher, which is the profession of one of my main characters in my first novel. I played basketball and was raised by a coach, hence the creation of my Playing series. Basically, I write what I know.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

If seems that for everyone of my novels, the very first sentence (usually when I’m completely settled and comfy in bed) comes to mind and it flows from there. I don’t know where the story is going. I just have a vague idea of what I want to happen. The longer I write, the more the story builds until I have a complete novel. The characters tell their own story. I just type it for them.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

I write contemporary romance with happy endings. I love reading them – why not write them, too?

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

For my recent novel, my dream cast would be Blake Lively as Annie, Zac Efron as Wyatt, Shailene Woodley as Breckin, Emilia Clark as CC, Liam Hemsworth as Griff and Diane Lane as Sadie. Want to see if you agree? Read Unlikely in Love.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I am an avid reader – always have been. Do I have to pick just one favorite??? Right now, I’m big on anything by Marina Adair, Rachel Higginson, Jessica Park and Emma Chase. I’ll also read anything by Suzanne Collins, Lauren Oliver, Dan Wells and Tahereh Mafi.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

I’m currently reading Every Little Kiss by Marina Adair and just devoured The Difference Between Us by Rachel Higginson.

9: What is your favourite book and why?

Now, this is one I ABSOLUTELY can’t choose. I’m always up for reading The Hunger Games. I think I’ve read it four times. Does that count?

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

My advice is to write, write, write. Write anything and everything. And read. Read the genre you want to to write, just so you can get the feel of different authors and how you want your book to flow.

About the Author:

I am a small town Oklahoma mom with a passion for writing. One who loves happy ever afters. I’d rather buy a book knowing I am going to be smiling at the end, floating on a cotton candy cloud of sunshine and rainbows instead of dreading the never-ending tears, swollen eyes, red nose and soggy pillow that follows a heart-breaking tragedy. Nuh-huh. I want the fairy tale. Forget Romeo and Juliet. I’ll take Snow White and Prince Charming any way. I love binge watching Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead and am quickly on my way to becoming the crazy cat lady. I hate mornings, mushrooms and mosquitos. My days are spent with my two witty and intelligent children and love-of-my-life husband on the lake or the golf course. If I’m not there, you can find me napping on the couch with my twelve year old Cocker Spaniel and two cuddly cats.

Author Interview: ‘True Grandeur – A Hollywood Novel’ by Cal R. Barnes

About the Book:

TRUE GRANDEUR is the tale of Conrad Arlington, a young man who moves to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming a great artist. Within a few short years of his arrival, Conrad’s success as a writer brings him to the attention of Gracie Garrison, a beautiful and alluring socialite whose glamorous lifestyle is just as mysterious as the rumors that surround her. After spending a spirited and adventurous night on the town together – one fueled by an excess of beautiful people, extravagant parties, gallery openings, and the madness of a fallen director – Conrad ultimately falls in love with her, believing them to be destined. However, when he awakens the next morning to find that Gracie is gone, he is distraught, and thus embarks on his relentless journey to find her, resulting in a tumultuous spiral of passion, art, and romance as he searches his soul to try and uncover the greatest mystery of all – true love.

At its core, True Grandeur is not just a love story, but rather an in-depth study on contemporary romanticism, of how ideals shape one’s need for individuality and importance, and of how sociological factors such as fame, wealth, and social class contribute to one’s ability to receive – or not receive – true love. It’s a story of what it means to feel deeply, and attempts to accurately illustrate the internal progression of feeling that is the artist’s journey.

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

Hi, my name is Cal. I live in Los Angeles. Aside from novels I also write plays and screenplays and make films. I’m vegetarian and practice yoga daily. I enjoy hikes, reading, and spending time at the beach and fresh water lakes whenever I get the chance to. I’ve been writing pretty consistently since I was younger. English and creative writing were always subjects I excelled in so trying to just use the gifts I’ve been given.

2: Do you have a favorite time and place where you write?

I usually write outside for a few hours in the morning in my yard with my coffee. I have few hours before the sun hits directly around noon. It’s nice, and peaceful, and good place to think. Then at noon I sit in the sun for a while : )

3: Where do your ideas come from?

I get most of my ideas from real life experience, or for pure fiction I guess you could say I pull it from the ether. I don’t know where some of it comes from, exactly — sure isn’t me — I think if a story wants to be told, it finds a way to be told. I believe the story looks for a vehicle or writer that that is at a place in life where he/she can relate, and has the capability of telling the story truthfully. I believe stories are higher than us. They come from a higher place. It’s the human spirit wanting to be more, striving to be more. Stories in a way help take us there.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

If I have passion or inspiration for a story I usually just start writing, knowing and trusting that I will be intuitively guided. There is usually a whole-istic feel for the story that I have going in. For the most part it’s worked out well so far. The story is already complete, it just needs to be told skillfully – that’s where the writer comes in.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

To date I’ve written mostly literary fiction, that is, literature as art. True Grandeur I’d say is literary fiction. I’ve been inspired mainly by well-written American and Los Angeles fiction, a great deal of which are probably considered ‘Great American Novels.’ They are great for a reason. They capture a time, place, and feeling; and have the ability to put the reader, life, art, and story together to create a timeless experience. That’s what I’ve always enjoyed reading, although I may be moving more towards the heightened and fantastic in some of my upcoming work. There’s a time and place for everything.

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

For Conrad, I could see Andrew Garfield or someone similar. I really like his earlier English films. Someone sophisticated with a lot of depth and truth in them. The character is 23 in the novel, so he’d have to be young, boyish, innocent, and all-believing. Conrad is a weighted character. He feels everything all the time. For Gracie, I always saw her as a Sienna Miller type, a kind of young Audrey Hepburn. She’d have to be a girl with that God-given ‘it factor’. It’s a pre-requisite to play a character that complex.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?

I read practically everyday and I have a lot of favorite authors. To name a few off the top of my head I like F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Fante, Harold Robbins, and currently I’m really enjoying the work of Neil Gaiman who wrote American Gods.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

Right now I’m finishing Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and also finishing up John Fante’s ‘Arturo Bandini’ series. I read them out of order, but I just finished The Road to Los Angeles and I am about to start Wait Until Spring, Bandini. He’s really got a unique style, and I love the arrogance of his alter ego. I think it was perfect for the time. As an artist starting out in this world you almost have to be arrogant to some extent — or something like it, even if it’s false — because no one else will believe in you unless you believe in yourself first. Later on, then, if you’re successful, that arrogance can soften itself into humility and gratitude, but starting out you need all push in whichever way you can get it. You have to believe in yourself so blindly that you have no choice but to succeed. I don’t think any other writer captures that like John Fante. I read Ask the Dust back in 2011 and it definitely spoke to me at the time. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get to the rest of the series. Ask the Dust is definitely one of the greatest Los Angeles novels, if not the greatest overall.

9: What is your favorite book and why?

My favorite book would have to be The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It’s just everything. For the time and place it was everything it was suppose to be, and more. That book is just higher – untouchable – it’s the soul of America to date. Love, yearning, desire, heartbreak, struggle, faith – it’s the American Dream in the form of a perfect, romantic tale. It’s a timeless classic.

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

Just start writing. That’s it. Write and let the words take you. I find the hardest part of writing is just getting going. Once you’re in, you’re in — you’re connected — tune in and let the words take you…

11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?

I’d say connect with me on Goodreads or feel free to get in touch with me directly through my website, CalBarnes.com. I have a contact form on there and all inquiries are welcome.

Abby Knight’s promising start as a family physician is cut short by an abusive relationship. She leaves a painful past behind and trades the hustle and bustle of city living for the more sedate pace of country life.She’s excited to join her Uncle’s family practice in Peace, Montana, and looks forward to many years working by his side.

As for relationships? Abby’s not interested. The only thing she cares about is establishing her medical practice and maybe finding a little bit of peace along the way.

However, a freak blizzard in May, quirky llamas, and a determined Montana rancher have other plans in mind.

Teasers

Peace Teaser Two.png

Peace Release Special Teaser.png

Excerpt

“It’s beautiful here.” Abby fought against the urge to spin in a circle, arms stretched wide, taking in the scene.

Drake’s hard gaze locked on her face. “Beyond gorgeous.”

Her cheeks heated. He’d hadn’t been talking about the farm.

“Come.” He turned toward the barn.

She followed him in companionable silence broken only by the crunching of snow beneath their feet. At the barn door, he unlatched the massive doors, then put his back into sliding them on their rails until a narrow opening appeared. As she passed

beside him, the heat of his breath seared her skin and made her shiver. Her breath fled as she pried her gaze from his eyes to take in the dimly lit interior of the barn.

Musk. A deep animal smell. The pungent aroma of dirt, hay, and what had to be llamas assaulted her nostrils. A low hum vibrated the air. Abby cast her gaze left and right until she realized the sound was coming from a pen to her left.

“What is that?” she asked.

Drake chuckled. “Llamas humming.”

“They hum?”

“Yes, and you should hear the males orgle.”

Had he made up that word?

“I hate to ask what an orgle is,” she said.

“Llamas hum when they’re happy. The males have a unique alarm call when they perceive danger, but when they breed, they orgle.”

“Orgle?”

“Yes, but it’s not breeding season, just the humming for right now.” His eyes crinkled at the corners. “I bet you’re dying to hear a llama orgle now aren’t you?”

He stepped close, towering over her, causing a tingle to spark in her chest and an ache to build lower down. Her entire body was painfully aware of his overwhelming presence. The timbre of his voice was both smooth and hypnotic, drugging even, because she found herself tipping back her head, her mind slipping, and her eyes closing as he leaned down.

His breath disturbed the air above her cheek, and she held still, paralyzed by what might happen next.

What Reviewers are Saying

“I love Drake and Abby!!! From the very beginning I was hooked! The only thing I didn’t like was that it ended,I wanted more!!! A great book!” Vickie, Goodreads reviewer.

“…a fast and wonderful read with all the feels.” Janice, Goodreads reviewer.

“Everyone wants a place to call home – a place where you know you belong and are needed, loved, and wanted. This story of Abby and Drake takes you on that journey… The writing is amazing and the characters are well developed. You get a little of everything in here, from steamy and sexy to sweet and tender. This is just an incredibly beautiful story that warms your heart!” JustCin, Goodreads reviewer.

Release Blitz and Author Interview: ‘Holy Crap! The World is Ending’ by Anna-Marie Abell

Title: Holy Crap! The World is Ending

How a Trip to the Bookstore led to Sex with an Alien and the Destruction of Earth

Author: Anna-Marie Abell

Genre: Paranormal / Romance / Ghosts / Humour

About the Book:

End times are here! Now you can eat whatever you want and not care if you gain weight.The president has announced that Earth is going to collide with a rogue moon, and in the process, our entire planet is going to be smashed to bits.

As one would expect, upon hearing this news, humans went ballistic. It was as if every sports team in the world lost their championship game at the same time. No car was left unrolled—but oddly enough, Taco Bell remained open and made unfathomable profits in the last days. Apparently, Doritos Locos® Tacos were a popular last meal.

Autumn (who for the purpose of this retelling asked to be portrayed as drool-inducing hot with kick-ass ninja skills) has just been handed the task of saving all of humanity. With the help of her unbelievably sexy alien boyfriend and her kleptomaniac friend with fire-retardant hair, Autumn takes a spaceship and races to save her fellow humans by using the Ark of the Covenant. Along the way, she discovers how sheltered people are from the truth of extraterrestrials and their power to either protect us or destroy us.

Stupid government.

Grab a bottle of wine, a shipload of snacks, and prepare to take a ride on this humorous chick lit romantic sci-fi paranormal adventure. If you’re into Ancient Aliens, conspiracy theories, UFOs, crave a little sexy time in your reading, are curious if we were genetically engineered (like the Sumerian cuneiform texts claim), and are dying to find out the meaning of life, then this book is for you.

 

What people are saying:

“An unexpected story that promises to be one of the most creative fictional discoveries of the year…a fun approach to the entire save-the-Earth-from-alien-invasion scenario which successfully turns traditional approaches upside down.”– D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

“An awesome read! Warm, witty–and thought provoking–a beach read that stays with you throughout the year!”– Aionios Books

“A rollicking seat of your pants fun ride through the universe!”– Joan Silvestro, Booktrader of Hamilton

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

Well, I am a UFO and ancient alien freak. I can be found attending monthly Mufon meetings (Mutual UFO Network) and UFO conferences. If it is paranormal in nature, I am so all over it. My obsession with ancient aliens got me studying the Sumerian culture about twenty years ago. The cuneiform tablets tell a very different tale of how the human race was created. I wanted to take all this knowledge and research I have done and put it into a book. There are plenty of hard sci-fi books about it, and I have a real hard time being serious, so I set out to change things up a bit, and write a cross-genre book incorporating it all into a humorous paranormal romance. ‘Cause you gotta have some hot alien sex, am I right?

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

Me and mornings do not get along—like at all—so I strictly write in the evenings. I work from home, so I need to get out and go somewhere else when I write. Usually, that is my local Starbucks or Panera. They are essentially my home away from home, and I know all the employees by name.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

Real life. What happens in real life is always funnier than anything I can make up. I am always taking notes of crazy things that happen so I can include them in stories. I also dream a lot of ideas too. I have been having a recurring dream where everyone I run into is looking for someone named Amanda Flyporch. I have no idea who that is, but there may be a story there. At the very least, I gotta name a character after her.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

In my first book, Holy Crap! The World is Ending!, I had a very general idea of what was going to happen. I mean, I knew the world was ending. LOL. But in book two of the trilogy, I had no clue. I decided to write the draft for that during NaNoWriMo last year and pounded out a draft in a month. That was a challenge, but very fun. In that case, the story completely developed as I went.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

The trilogy I am writing now is a contemporary humorous chick lit sci-fi paranormal romance. I love me some paranormal romance when I read, especially when it is humorous, and so that is the genre I write. I love escaping to different worlds where there is something beyond just us boring humans. Since I love the genre so much, it was a natural path for me to take in my writing.

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

I think Jennifer Lawrence for Autumn. She has the comic timing Autumn would need. However, even though Autumn is Caucasian in my book (simply because she was based on me), I would like to see an African American play her. Maybe Katerina Graham? My first choice for Rigel would be Paul Wesley from the Vampire Diaries, but alas, Rigel is really tall. So I am thinking Chris Hemsworth or Justin Hartley. For Emma, Kristin Kreuk. (Can you tell I like CW shows?) Ninurta is totally Alexander Skarsgard, Inanna is Charlize Theron, Clive Owen for Enlil, and Daniel Craig for Enki. Devon is the one I haven’t figured out yet, but I am kinda liking Diego Boneta.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I listen to audiobooks all the time. You rarely find me walking around without my earbuds. My favorite authors, in no particular order, are Janet Evanovich, Kresley Cole, Molly Harper, Jeanine Frost, Richelle Mead, David Sedaris, Douglass Adams, and of course, J.K. Rowling.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

I just finished a book totally out of my wheelhouse that I really enjoyed. It is memoir called, A Few Minor Adjustments, by Cherie Kephart. It was about a woman who suffers from a mysterious illness and her struggle to survive. I am also listening to The Spaceship Next Door by Gene Doucette. I think I like it, but I am not sure yet. It has some great humor and interesting characters, it just isn’t quite going anywhere plot wise yet. I am holding out hopes that something will happen soon.

9: What is your favourite book and why?

Well, it is more of a series, but Harry Potter. J.K. Rowling didn’t just create a book, she created an entire world—and what an amazing world it is! I would probably sacrifice one of my limbs if it meant I could become part of that world. Maybe even two. Three if I could magically grow at least one of them back.

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

Become a plumber instead. LOL. I am totally kidding. It is a tough road, but so worth it! The thing is, a writer needs to be prepared to wear many hats if they want their work published. It isn’t all about sitting down and being creative. The real work comes when you are done and have to promote it (this is the case for both indie publishing or traditional publishing). It is non-stop work, and it becomes hard to find time to actually write again once you entered the rabbit hole of publication. So my advice would be to find a balance. You need to dedicate time to the business side of writing, as well as the creative side. If you are not willing to buckle down and market yourself, then doing it as a profession will be difficult.

About the Author:

Anna-Marie Abell grew up in a trailer park. Well, several actually. Her trailer was on wheels so she got to experience the Pacific Northwest’s vast array of mobile home parks as her parents moved her from one to the other. Somewhere along the way, she got totally into UFOs. Probably because she was hoping extraterrestrials would come and abduct her. But they never did. Luckily for her she was smart, because her only hope of escaping trailer life was college and a full scholarship. Moving to sunny California on her almost full ride to Chapman University, she was well on her way to her new life. Two bachelor degrees later (Film and Television Production and Media Performance), and several honors and awards for her accomplishments, she managed to start working in an almost completely unrelated industry from her majors: infomercials.

It was in college that she got bit by the “ancient alien” bug after listening to Zecharia Sitchin on Coast to Coast AM. In her pursuit to uncover the truth, she has spent the last twenty years researching the ancient Sumerian culture—in particular their “gods” called the Anunnaki—and their connection to the creation of the human race. What she found changed her life, her beliefs, and her understanding of the universe and everything beyond. Her humorous science fiction trilogy, The Anunnaki Chronicles, is a culmination of all her research, her borderline obsession for all things paranormal, and approximately 2,300 bottles of wine.
