What I'm Celebrating This Week

Wow… we're already half-way through January, and so far 2017 has been extremely busy… I'm thinking that's an indication of how most of the year will be for me. But I've achieved a lot already and I'm super happy with my progress.

– One of my goals is to get healthier, so I've been getting up most mornings at 6 am and going for an hour swim at my local pool. It's right next to the beach, which is just gorgeous.

– Yesterday I wrote THE END on the draft of a shorter story in the Fallen Ashes world. Lots of edits ahead, but I'm up for the challenge:)

– Next week, the first anthology I'm in, Dark Legends comes out… OMG I am so excited, I can't tell you.

– Speaking of which, another anthology with one of my books in the Hell Unleashed series has just gone on pre-order. Check out the cover, and it's at only 99c… great time to grab a copy. Check it out.

– The weather in Sydney has been insanely hot… unbearble, so I've been hiding indoors during the day in air conditioning. Funny to see on news half the world in snow.

– On my previous blog, I had kicked off a mythology manual, showcasing lots of different myths and creatures, so I've resurrected it. It's still in the beginning stages, but it will grow quickly. Take a gander.

FALLEN ASHES

Last of your kind? Check. Being hunted by everyone? Check. Waking up magically bound to the world's most cocky and annoying assassin? Wait, what? 

Survival has always been on the top of Fallen's To Do List as being the last Dragon shifter in Tapestry had painted a target on her long ago. But after being captured and magically tethered to an assassin who could kill her in an instant, time is running out. With the fate of an entire world at stake, Fallen has to find a way to get out alive, with or without her unwanted companion…her incredibly sexy unwanted companion.

Exiled from the Kingdom and on a mission to save his stepfather from the Collector, Saber's life is already a mess. But he never could imagine that he'd be hexed into a mindless shadow assassin or worse, being kidnapped and mystically-bound to a hot blonde vixen that has a crazy obsession with fire. Sexy/strange/fire-chick aside, he has got to find a way to get out of there but Fallen isn't in the least being helpful with their escape plan. Seriously, can things get any worse?

Magically-bound, determined, and both fighting an undeniable attraction, can Saber and Fallen work together to free themselves and save their world by defeating the Collector?  Or will time slip out of their grasp and all will be lost?AddtoGoodreads.jpg

What I'm Celebrating This Week

– I love weekends! And I have one more week of work, then I'm on vacation for a few weeks. Can't wait, so I'm celebrating the countdown.

– Christmas present shopping is almost complete. This weekend we plan to wrap all the pressies and have them ready for Christmas.

– On the writing front, everything is plodding along nicely. Sales are slowing, which I put down to December being a crazy month where everyone is selling something LOL and coming off the launches. But overall, my recent releases have been my best yet:)

– Over the next few weeks I plan to finish a novella set in the Fallen Ashes world… and I need to finalize my series name as this is scheduled for a March release. I might take it easy after that as early next year is very busy for me. I have a release coming out Jan, Feb and March. Mostly boxed sets, with my first one, Dark Legends being available Jan 17. I can't wait for the world to read Demon's Mark 🙂 Love that book.

– Then I plan to write book 1 in a new series based on a poplular characters with readers – Daciana from the Wulfkin Legacy series. She will have her own small series – Urban Fantasy based. So far I have three stories planned, but many more are possible.

– Lastly, check out some awesome paranormal books for Christmas – all are either 99c or FREE 🙂

What I'm Celebrating This Week

– Been quiet for the past couple of weeks on my blog…mostly because I've been a bit overwhelmed with my workload, three launches, and trying to not go mad LOL

– All launches are doing exceptionally well… My best yet! It also helped that my publisher put one of my backlist books in Bookbub as that gave all my books a nice spike. And now, my books are bestsellers on the pubisher's website:

– My first self published story has just been released, and I have been so excited to finally do this.. yep, I'm now a hybrid author:) The reviews coming in Fallen Ashes are incredible… Makes me so happy. Anyway, I'm sure you're eager to read more about Fallen Ashes… Check it out here.

What I'm Celebrating This Week

– Despite this week starting off incredibly busy, it ended on a quieter note, and I can't be happier to have a calm weekend. Looks like it might rain here, so I'll be spending it with friends who are visiting for the weekend.

– I recevied an email from my publisher this week that they've been acquired by Simon & Schuster. This is huge… they are a Big Five publishing company. While we don't know the full details yet of what's to come and how exactly this impacts all the authors, I am taking this as a positive note. Something awesome is bound to come out of this. I'll be keeping you posted.

– The Dark Legends boxed set I'm in has hit the Bestseller list on Amazon and reached #75 on Amazon!!! That is pretty exciting.

– My latest Wulfkin Legacy novel has just hit Amazon on pre-order. So far the book is doing quite well and I've got a few more promotions lined up, so fingers crossed it continues to sell well. Check it out here.

Huntress Found by A.A. Chamberlynn

huntressfound_cvr_sml

Title: Huntress Found

Series: The Timekeeper’s War, Book One

Author: A.A. Chamberlynn

Release Day: 11/11/16

Category: New Adult

Genre: Contemporary Fantasy, Mythology Mashup with Sci-Fi and Steampunk

Price: 99 cents!!

Description:

From the author of the bestselling Zyan Star fantasy series comes a new world of magic…

Evryn’s got mad skills at playing hide and seek. She can find lost children, hack the most secure databases, pretty much anything. Except for the one thing she desires most: the knowledge of who her parents are, why they abandoned her, and what her special talent means about who and what she really is.

So, when a guy named Seeker appears quite literally out of nowhere, claiming to know about her past and offering her a job, Evryn can’t say yes fast enough. Even if it does mean following him to another realm. As in, mind-blowingly, not Earth. Apparently she’s part of an elite clan of Hunters descending from Artemis who can find just about anything in all of time and space. As the last of Artemis’ direct lineage, Evryn is her clan’s best shot at finding a lost city before rival clans do.

Not just any city, but the flying, realm-hopping city of Skye. Aboard Skye is the Artifex, a magical device with the power to create or destroy worlds. Everyone wants the device, and with Evryn’s super-powered lineage, it means everyone wants her, too. It’s hard to decide who she can trust, even within her own clan. After she discovers a strange, alluring connection to the Artifex, she’s not even sure she can trust herself. Worse yet, the only person who may be able to help her is the Timekeeper, the sadistic ancient being who created the Artifex. An interdimensional war is brewing, and Evryn is right at the epicenter of it all.

Let the hunt begin.

Timeless by Crystal Collier

 

Welcome Crystal Collier here today to share her new book and some editing tips!

 
In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat—along with an unfathomable evil and her own heart—the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

GUEST POST

Thank you T.F. Walsh for having me here today!

So you've written this story with an epic beginning, a killer end, but the middle–ugh! No matter what you do, you can't seem to fix the saggy, boring, drawn-out middle.
 

Here are a few quick tips to whip that middle into a gem.

First we have to diagnose the issue. Often middles suffer from one of these:
 

1. Passive character action
2. Lack of focus on plot
3. Where did the tension go?

Correcting character passivity: 

Characters need to change and grow in a novel. It's a known truth. Otherwise we end up with "cardboard" characters, and who wants to hang out with them? I mean, they can't even talk back to you!

The protagonist needs to be changing and challenged by everything that comes their way. No one wants to read about someone smoothly sailing over their challenges.

A big issue I run across is a character who is merely reacting to everything that's happening rather than actively seeking after their goals. It's fine for a character to react to their world, but when you hit the 50% point of a book, that HAS to change. This is the point at which the character has been pushed and shoved and won't take it no more! From this moment on they must actively go after what they need–whether that be a relationship, independence, power, wealth, revenge, justice, or peace. (And if your character doesn't BREAK, maybe that's the issue?)

Focusing the Plot:

But your character does change and grow and pursues their goals. What is wrong?

Have you looked at the plot? A dynamic plot has a strong beginning, a dramatic turn around at the middle, and a powerful end, but that's not all. The middle of that plot should be contain no less than 3 (and preferably more like 6) plot points that DRIVE us toward a need for resolution. Try creating a plot chart where you actually measure where your action falls. I'm serious here–an actual graph. Estimate the tension for each plot point along the way on a scale from one to ten. (This means you have to clearly identify the turning points in the manuscript–any time something happens that motivates major change.)

Every time you hit a plot point, you're going to go from a negative to a positive motivation, or the reverse. Technically, every chapter should be balance by a negative to positive (or the reverse). This is one way to get to the next issue…

Where did the tension go? 
 

Image from Getty Images

There was a point at which I started chanting "tension all the time" while writing. There must be a juicy carrot–a mystery or desire hanging in front of the readers face to keep them moving forward. What question do you want readers asking in each chapter? What feeling do you want them to experience at the end of each chapter? Don't leave it to chance. Actually ask yourself these question and answer them–then implement the answer if it doesn't already exist. Keep a mystery/need in front of the characters, and only let your readers relax about once every 60 pages. Keep them worried. Keep them hopeful. Keep them wondering.

In the end, middles only sag if we don't build the proper structure beneath them. Go forth and support! You've got this.
 

What advice do you give for sagging middles? Have you been able to fix a book from the middle?

What I'm Celebrating This Week

– What an insanely busy week. I've been drowning in edits as my publisher sent back the second round of edits for Cloaked in Christmas, and I'm glad to say they are all done. Then one more round to go for final proofing. I've also been working on the edits for Demon's Mark. 

– I'm behind on so many things, but I plan to get them all done this weekend.

– This weekend I also plan to use Vellum for the first time… it's a software for mac that allows me to format my own books. Let's hope it goes well as I need to create a sampler mobi file by Monday for an instagram promo I'm doing with a group of authors.

– I saw the cover for Cloaked in Christmas from my publisher… I can't stop smiling… I aboslutely love it. Coming soon.

– This week, my latest release went live on pre-order, and for a limited time, FALLEN ASHES is only 99 cents. Super excited as the sales so far are pretty good, so if you want to grab a copy before the price goes up, check it out here.

Curious what's the book is about… here you go:

FALLEN ASHES

As the last of her kind, Fallen awakes in a holding cell, but being locked up is the least of her problems.

She's been magically bound to a cocky Queen's Guardian named Saber. Because Fallen is the last dragon shifter in Tapestry, she's on everyone's hit list… especially his… but she doesn't have time to die by his hand. Fallen has to find her life mate in four weeks or else all of creation in her world will be destroyed.

Saber never asked to be brought to life. He certainly never wanted to be hexed and forced to transform into a mindless shadow assassin. Exiled from the Kingdom, he must rescue his stepfather from the Collector to prove his innocence. Otherwise he'll be hunted and killed. But his plans are temporarily put on hold when he's captured, imprisoned, and bound to a mysterious blond-haired vixen with a major fire addiction.

With time ticking away for Saber and Fallen, will the two be able to come together to defeat the Collector and save themselves, along with the rest of the world?

– And if you have a moment, feel free to add Fallen Ashes to your goodreads to read pile. AddtoGoodreads.jpgWhat are you celebrating this week?

Cloaked in Blood Blurb

The daughter of a sultan alpha, Selena Kurt agrees to an arranged wulfkin mating to protect her sister from a dangerous alpha from the enemy clan. To her surprise, her match is Marcin Ulf, the next in line for the Hungarian throne…and the wulfkin who broke her heart years ago.
Marcin is just as shocked to learn he’ll be matched to the enemy’s daughter and the woman he’s never forgotten. Before they can be paired, however, they’re drawn into a tournament where Marcin will compete to free his estranged imprisoned brother, while Selena battles for the life of another wulfkin alpha. Both intend to seize this chance to save those they’re fighting for—even if it means facing off with one another just as their romance rekindles.
Will tribe loyalty triumph, or will they realize they’re better off as a team before it’s too late?
