KEPT

Twelve massive ships leave the dying earth, heading into the great unknown, seeking new life among the stars.
One of the ships, GIA, crashes on Kepler, which is already inhabited. Now at the mercy of the alien race, the humans are held in an underground cavern.
Would they still have gone knowing that they would be stripped of all humanity?
Under the constant eye of the aliens, a few men discover there may be a way out of the cavern.
But to where?
How will they escape and what will they encounter if they succeed?

HANDSOME

Being handsome has its advantages and affords him easy access into people’s homes. They quickly learn you can not judge a book by its cover when they pay the ultimate price with their lives. He didn’t ask to look the way he does, nor to lose his loving mother at such a young age. Dealing with unwanted memories, he will find a way to erase his past by cleansing the city as he sees fit.
Detective Marcy Gagon, finds at times her relationship with the lead coroner, Krista Jones, a harder case to crack than the one she’s trying to solve. She feels alone in the hunt for a man whom she believes is a serial killer. The Chief of Police refuses to entertain the possibility that Toronto has yet another serial killer until she can bring him solid proof. But when another couple are killed within 24 hours of the last, Marcy gets the push she needs, and new leads come pouring in. Fully engulfed in her job, she also learns a deeper secret to her girlfriend’s past that only strengthens their bond. Hot on the heels of a killer, Marcy must somehow bring his reign of terror to an end without letting her personal life interfere.

Bolstering youth art and creativity through indie publishing.

Being an independent author gives us the freedom to do as we please. Of course the ultimate goal is to gain readers, reviews, and respect among our peers (and make money).

However it is also allowing me to showcase the artwork of an extremely talented local youth. Had my new book gone to a publisher, this would not be accepted. It also happened by chance.

How did it all come about?

My draft for Unfamiliar Territory, a kids chapter book, was handed off to a co-worker’s niece just for fun. He’s bragged about her drawings in the past. After she received the book he asked if she could make some art for the book. I said yes, that would be great. It’s a good feeling to know that my words inspired her imagination. And then he showed me images of what she was creating and I was blown away. This girl’s talent is stunning.

I don’t want to give away all the pictures in the book, so here is one teaser.

And all this makes holding the paperback even more enjoyable. Check out, Unfamiliar Territory on Amazon today.

About the artist: Victoria is 14, she enjoys art and anything to do with literature. She likes coffee way too much to be healthy and is a night owl who hates mornings. She’s passionate about music, it’s her main source of inspiration and would rather live in a fictional world where she can own a sword.

Be open to looking for youth to support and inspire and be proud to be indie.

We are more than one thing.

When I hear authors saying, “Stick to one genre, you’ll be more popular”, I get IRKED. I am more than one thing; you are too.

At my day job, I work in multiple departments to keep busy. If I’m having a slow day in administration, I can hop on the phones and take sales, or join the retail team to cash out customers. Heck I’ve even gone to the warehouse to pick product.

At home I’m a wife, a dog mom/walker, a chief, a cleaner, gardener, furniture assembler, financer, and the occasional handy-assistant. (Husband is all that too — that’s the point)

So why when I write must I work with one tool? Well, guess what, it’s not going to happen anytime soon. I enjoy testing the waters of new ideas. The characters for each genre are so vastly different, too. This helps me stay fresh, innovative and bring more to my fans than same ole’ same ole’.

What are your roles in life, do you stay with what you know, or enjoy dabbling in everything? Share your thoughts with our fellow readers. OR make the case against me as to why staying true is the ultimate.

Writing changed my life. It can change yours too.

I began writing as a child, but I was terrified to share it with anyone. When I hit my 40’s and the dreaded midlife crisis began I was asking “IS THIS IT?” and truly disappointed with where I’d led myself to. Life was work, watch TV, repeat.

Thanks to my dear friend Lisa Crawford who informed me of self-publishing, I dusted off the novel that’d been sitting in my drawer for twenty years and I was off!

Unchanged since first loaded Jan 2016 http://Cataclysm was my life long project.

Then I began blogging and connecting on social media with other authors. The scariest next step was live interviews! I tell you I was terrified for my first one. I felt like an imposter talking about my new career. However, once I started chatting and learning that everyone else feels the same way, all my jitters fell away. Don’t let fear stop you! Now I’ll talk to anyone about anything, that’s huge for me. A quick 4 yrs. later and here I am doing an interview with the local paper.

Put yourself out there, the worst that can happen is people say no – and they will – however it’s the YES’S that count and those will come too.

If you’ve read all the way to here I have a special for you. Do you have a book you want to promote? Drop the comment with a link and I’ll add it to my #WHATTOREAD2021 page – FREE. Check it out below, you can drop your comment there too if you prefer. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!
