Zero Tolerance for PIRACY!!

Happy Friday Everybody. As the weekend is upon us, I would to bring to the forefront a topic that irritates me a lot. E-Book Piracy.

I have noticed that e-book piracy is becoming more and more rampant everyday. This blog as well as my other one, Lovetiggi's Book Reviews, http://lovetiggibookreviews.wordpress.com/ both have Zero Tolerance for piracy of any kind. If I see it happening, I will report it. If the author or the publisher did not post it, it is PIRATED or STOLEN, and robs the author of the monies owed them.

Authors spend many an hour writing often at the sake of their family just to bring their story to the reader. I am a reader and so love sharing their work with the world. However, I will not share the actual book itself.

If you wish to share an e-book with a friend or family member, use an authorized platform like Nook or Kindle Loaning. E-mailing to share or posting in open forums is called COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT. It is ILLEGAL and simply WRONG.

Please comment below if you have questions or concerns. Have a great weekend..

Night Demon and an Interview with Lisa Kessler

OH MY GOSH!!
I am thrilled to be a part of Night Demon's Blog Tour! I fell in Love with Lisa's writing when I read Night Walker. Now Book 2 is here SQUEEEEE!! I am so happy for Lisa.  Check out the interview and giveaway below!




Lisa Kessler is an award winning author of dark paranormal fiction. Her debut novel, Night Walker, won a San Diego Book Award for Best Published Fantasy-Sci-fi-Horror as well as the Romance Through the Ages Award for Best Paranormal and Best First Book.

Her short stories have been published in print anthologies and magazines, and her vampire story, Immortal Beloved, was a finalist for a Bram Stoker award.

When she's not writing, Lisa is a professional vocalist, performing with the San Diego Opera as well as other musical theater companies in San Diego. You can learn more at http://Lisa-Kessler.com

She loves hearing from readers - LdyDisney@aol.com

You can also get updates on her blog - http://authorlisakessler.com



The Interview:
Any favorite foods, movies, and colors? 
Foods: Many! LOL, Movies: Rocky & Camelot, Color: Purple

When did you start writing and what inspired you to become a writer? 
I was an only child so I was constantly making up stories as a kid! LOL I started writing every night about 15 years ago. Eventually I started selling short stories and worked my way up to a novel after a palm reader in New Orleans told me I was going to be a famous author someday! J  Her nudge definitely changed the course of my writing!  Six months after that visit I had the first draft of Night Walker finished.
  
What projects have you done?  Any new projects coming up? 
I have 3 more new books coming out this year!  Moonlight will be out in July. This book kicks off my new Moon Series, and book two, Hunter’s Moon, will be out in October.  And in December I have a new stand alone book called, Beg Me To Slay…

What kind of pets do you own, if any? 
Yodette is my Boston Terrier and favorite fur-kid.  We also have two other dogs and a cat… J

Are you an independent artist or are you represented by an agency? 
My agent is Laurie McLean from Foreword Literary.  She rocks!

Any favorite bands? Do you use music to inspire you as you write?
Oh I have SO many!!!  For every book I write I create a music playlist with character theme songs, movie soundtracks for mood, etc.

What advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field? 
Practice the craft of writing. Write lots of short stories and learn from what works for you and what doesn’t before you set out to write a novel.  There’s isn’t a recipe for writing, you just have to practice it over and over…

Anything you would like to share with readers on a personal note that would allow them to get to know you better?  
I love Disney villains, especially the Evil Queen from Snow White.  I sing often and love pretty much everything except country and rap. I love chatting with readers so I’m easy to find online… http://twitter.com/LdyDisney or http://facebook.com/LisaKesslerWriter

Do you find it hard to share your work with others?
I used to, but it’s better now…  Although right before a book releases the butterflies overwhelm my stomach with fluttering and my neurotic inner author voice whispers, “What if they don’t like it?”  Yikes!

Did your writing come from just a need to express yourself or a particular experience that you had?
I wrote for fun every night for about 6 years before I met the palm reader in New Orleans and she mentioned me being a writer.  It’s interesting because once she planted that seed, I had been writing every night for years and had no idea I was practicing for my future! LOL 

The first short story I ever submitted was Immortal Beloved and got published and went on to be a finalist for a Bram Stoker award for short fiction.  I had the bug then, and I knew I wanted to be a full-time writer! 



Don't be a stranger...





Deep within the Yucatan jungle, a demon has awakened…

Gretchen Finch’s job would be much easier if she weren’t alone in the jungle with a brilliant recluse whose every glance sets her on fire. But the more she focuses on her work, the closer she gets to unlocking the mysteries of a terrible creature—the Night Demon—that threatens the world as she knows it. Though her scientific mind tells her it’s impossible, she’s beginning to believe the ancient Mayan tales as the sinister jungle comes alive around her.

Lukas Smith has spent hundreds of years searching for answers to his immortal Night Walker nature. As a series of ancient glyphs become clear, he’s about to find out more than he’d ever hoped, but the more he learns, the more his fate intertwines with the Night Demon, and the harder it becomes to hide his immortal secret from the beautiful, intelligent Gretchen.

Together, they must find a way to stop the inexplicable violence and mass destruction surging across the earth before the Night Demon destroys more than just mankind.



And now for the Giveaway!!

Author Spotlight: J A Lynch's Shadow World

Welcome to I Love My Authors



Fiery Librian Julieanne Lynch is an author of urban fantasy books for both adults and teens. Julieanne lives in Northern Ireland, where she works on her Shadows Trilogy and other series full-time. Before becoming a writer, she considered a few different career paths, a rock star being one of them. She studied English Literature and Creative Writing at The Open University, and considered journalism as a career path. However, she decided writing was the way for her and believes all of her education and reading prepared her for it.

An avid reader, Julieanne has always had an encompassing fascination with folklore. When not writing, she enjoys crime series such as Criminal Minds, CSI, NCIS and Cold Case, and loves anything with Vampires, listening to metal, meeting new people, drinking lots of green tea, and sharing her dreams with her children. She is a self-professed goth wanna-be,and is happy when left to write into the early hours of the morning.

 Julieanne also writes under the pen name J.A. Lynch




Julieanne's YA series, The Shadows Trilogy, is published by Vamptasy Publishing and thus far contains In the Shadows. It follows the war between vampires and shadow creatures. Giselle Bergman, an 18-year old human girl, falls victim to a scheme by one of her closest childhood friends, and embarks on a journey that sees her become the center of a battle between good and evil.





Living on the razors edge, Giselle Burgman's life is torn apart by her cheating boyfriend. Little does she realise that he is the least of her worries when her long term friend Alex introduces her to his family and a new, darker world. A world of lies, deceit and corruption. Thrown from one problem straight into another, the razors edge gets thinner and sharper, testing Giselle's sanity and vitality. Not even she can hide when living within the shadows.

 Within the Shadows:
http://www.amazon.com/Within-Shadows-Shadow-Novels-ebook/dp/B00B85ZUD8



Giselle has barely had time to accept her new life, never mind the prospect of motherhood, but she finds herself, yet again thrown into chaos, only this time there is more than just her life at stake. With vampires and shadow creatures vying for her life, can Giselle escape the darkness consuming her, or will she finally descend into the world of shadows?


Escaping Shadows:



Only the truest of love can overcome the darkness of the unknown, where one girl finds eternal happiness, another is damned from existence.

Can true love really free you from the shackles? Or is temptation a road well traveled?

AVA book 1

My Review
Rating: 5 out of 5 Hearts

I was given an e-copy of this first installment in exchange for an honest review.
Rue never ceases to amaze me with her stories. AVA is a fresh spin on demonic and erotic reads. I throughly enjoyed it. Thanks Rue.

Meet Ava, a waitress in a crappy diner, whom has no idea of who or what she really is… until she meets Sai… he has his own way of opening her eyes to the truth.. I will just say that the world is amazing and the characters are humoreous in their banter.

Action-packed fight scenes and sensuality make this a great read. I am so looking forward to seeing where she takes the characters.. as this slotted to be a 6 part short story series…

SALEM book 2

My Review
Rating: 5 out of 5 Hearts

I was given an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.. OMG! I have fallen for this series, the writing style is so easy to follow with Rue’s quick-wit and humorous banter… I am addicted…

Meet Bryan Brenna, a man with issues is putting it mildly. LOL As I have said before I do not like or use spoilers and will not start now. The twists and turns are amazing and the HOT sexual scenes will leave you panting for more…

If you are looking for an Awesome fast-paced and erotic read… Go no further… This is it. I Love it

LIN book 3


My Review
Rating: 5 out of 5 Hearts

I was given an e-copy of this story by the author in exchange for an honest review. OMG! LIN is an amazing installment of the Double Gun Dealer Novella Series. She is a Hoot as well as a Hellcat.

One of my favorite quotes in this installment is about a kiss… Just the wording spoke straight to my heart and had me all emotional.. Love it.

“It doesn’t have to be one filled with mushy love, I mean a kiss that rocks you back from the passion of it. One that runs the heat wave down the spine and settles…” LIN (A Double Gun Dealer Novella #3)

Meet LIN – She has a crappy job, but it pays the bills. Prefers to be alone and has issues, she is a believable character. Then LONDON comes into her life and things become a whole lot of different in more ways then one… Better, yet different. The sensual banter between the characters heats things up even more.

The twists and turns are entertaining as well as intense. Am I addicted? Hell Yeah..

Rue simply tells you like it is, was, or will be in a straight forward no holds barred kinda way. I Love her writing style.


Amazon:

As the saying goes--Johnny Break! I just cannot have a Rue post without having Johnny here. It would seem to be missing an element. ;-)

IZZY book 5


My Review
Rating: 5 out of 5 Hearts

I was given an e-copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. OMG Amazing installment -it is more informative on how IZZY evolved … I can now see see how things are all connected.

As with all of Rue’s Double Gun Dealer stories, they are full of twists and turns, suspense, mystery, and HAWT SEX scenes. Not spoil anything cause spoilers ruin it for some. But there is one particular scene within that just made my jaw drop… and the ending blew me away…

LOVE this series, Rue is an amazing author whom I adore. Bring on SAIGON…..

SAIGON Book 6

My Review:
5 out of 5 Hearts

I was given an e-copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Rue, so sad to see this series end. The characters are enchanting.


“There are moments in time you try to hold onto forever, a kiss, a look…a first love.” SAIGON (DGD#6) by Rue Volley

Holy Cow! I the beginning sentence in this installment just speaks volumes about this character and in no way is he exempt from it just because he is a man. Men have feelings too.

Rue does it again.. OMG the heat factor is scorching in this one. The twists and turns will blow your mind. Love it. I recommend this series to any adult erotic reader who wants a solid bang of a read.

New Release: Deena Remiel's Elixxir (The Brethren Series Book #3)



Welcome to I Love My Authors
It is release day for Deena Remiel's third installment of her popular Brethren Series. I have a complete Series Spotlight on Lovetiggi's Book Reviews Yes that is Jimmy Thomas as the cover model! Doesn't he look Yummy with wings?

This series is PNR, UF, and an Adult Fiction read intended for the 18+ Only. 


BLURB:
Callie has secrets, too many to count.
For twenty years she’s been living a lie as Callie Worthington, hiding from the monsters who brutally murdered her parents for possession of the Elixxir of Life. Unsuccessful before, their killers have found her and will stop at nothing to acquire the Elixxir. And see her dead.
Nathanael has a couple of secrets, too. A nasty one in particular blurs the line separating Good from Evil. As an immortal Brethren Warrior, though, he must retrieve the Elixxir before it falls into the wrong hands. Just how he’s going to get it out of Callie’s is the big question.
Tempers flare as Callie and Nathanael reach out to each other with their own hidden agendas. She needs his protection. He needs the Elixxir. Will their fiery passion lead to lasting love, or will their web of intrigue ultimately destroy them both?
Secrets, lies, and love’s loyalties tested. What price for immortality? What price for love?

EXCERPT:
The alarm proved to be no friend come Monday morning. It wouldn’t stop buzzing. Callie picked it up and threw it clear across the room. Before hitting the far wall, it managed to nail a delicate glass figurine, smashing it into a thousand pieces.
“Well, shit.” She got up to get the dustpan and broom, and swept her mess away. She fell back against her bed and ruffled her hair. “All right, sister, you promised yourself you’d change, so here we are at Day One. Get your act together, put some decent clothes on, and paint a smile on your face. Today is the first day of the rest of your life!” She sat up and smiled a cheesy, fake smile at her reflection in the dresser mirror and got ready for work.
She saw things in a whole different light by the time she downed her coffee and ate her English muffin. After tossing her plate and mug in the sink, she did a final check of her face and hair in the foyer mirror, opened the door, and slammed straight into a wall of man.
“Whoa,” said a rich, baritone voice.
“Oh, my God! I’m so sorry! I didn’t know you were….” Her next words were frozen on her tongue as she identified the mammoth creature in front of her.
Kemuel.
Too stunned to move, she looked straight into his jade-colored eyes, momentarily lost in the memory of how they once made her knees turn to jelly. The memory faded quickly, and she smirked as her knees held her steady and strong. Having regained her composure, she saw a huge bouquet of flowers in his hands. Crushed flowers, now.
“Hello, Callie. I—”
Before he could say another word, she backed up and slammed the door in his face.
Leaning against it, she closed her eyes, wishing that she’d simply imagined him, and it was really the guy from the florist down the street. She turned and looked through the peephole. No such luck. Kemuel stood there, all right. What the hell is he doing here? Maybe if I stay in here long enough, he’ll give up and go away. No, be realistic, woman. You’re gonna have to throw him out. Just do it.
Slowly, she opened the portal to Hell to find him still standing there in all of his six-foot-four, god-like glory, looking shell-shocked. She hadn’t forgotten how perfection had shined down upon him, kissing his head with pure white strands of hair, and blessed him with a muscular build meant to be scaled by her. She also hadn’t forgotten being left high and dry for months on end, either.

My First Loves: T Lyn Fletcher - Twisted and Turned

Welcome to I Love My Authors

Today I am presenting a new segment in what I term as My First Loves: and today is one of the first authors that I found in early 2011 who was just starting to launch her book series, called TWISTED and TURNED. T. Lyn Fletcher. I read the interview on Bite This! A Vampire Book Blog hosted by the Awesome Ruby Groves.

Welcome Lyn I am so glad to host you today.



About The Author
In her everyday life, T. Lyn Fletcher is a very successful medical software designer, engaged to a country musician, the mother of two boys, and a member of one of North Carolina’s most prominent and philanthropic families.  Despite her family status and her business success, however, she always sensed that something was buried deep within her that would be revealed one day as her destiny. Fate found her on a June morning after an unexpected dream had revealed a story to her. That story turned into a series of books filled with supernatural events and characters that continued to “twist and turn” as the plot progressed. She recognized that many of the characters were autobiographical and realized that the supernatural wasn’t a foreign subject within her extended family. Writing the Twisted and Turned series of books, with names changed to protect the not-so-innocent, became a driving passion that she could not ignore. “The Unholy Union” is only the beginning for this fascinating author.

Twisted and Turned by T. Lyn Fletcher

"A true love story of supernatural proportions surrounded by intrigue, mystery, and plain old - fashioned demon hunting." T. Lyn Fletcher

The story begins when an archangel in heaven falls so deeply in love with a human soul that she arranges to be born on earth in the same place where his soul will be born. She falls to earth - not, without notice, mind you, by the Powers that be - and is born into the powerful Fletcher family . The soul she so deeply loves in born into the equally powerful Gillespie family, but not as a single man. This soul becomes twins - stunning handsome twin vampires. (Imagine Johnny Depp) Yes, vampires can be born in her books, and if the men so choose, they can reoproduce with the right partner. Yet, this archangel is destined to find and fall in love with one of the twins. To make matters more interesting, the vampire twin whom she falls in love with is every bit a demon despite his ravishing good looks.





The Interview
ILMA: Any favorite foods, movies, and colors?
I am a vegetarian. I have no particular favorite food but if I am held at fang point to answer, it would most definitely be strawberries. I not only love the flavor but the romantic indication one perceives when thinking of strawberries. Especially the ones covered in chocolate paired with a sparkling glass of champagne. This makes me digress to a memory of a certain time alone in a snowy mountain cabin with a certain special man. Amazing how a simple strawberry brings back such wonderful memories. 

Movies – now here is a category I can sink my teeth into (no pun intended) I am a diehard movie buff.  I adore theatrical productions of any type from live theatre to those Made-for-Television movies. Which, as you can imagine, makes it difficult for me to choose a most favorite one?  But I can easily tell you my “least” favorite movie of all time which is Snakes on a Plane - I hate those creatures – Elementals in slimy bodies they are, I’m just certain. 

My most favorite movie?   I would admit my most favorite movie experience of late has been the “Harry Potter” series. I found the movie adaptation of the JK Rowling book series, challenging to my imagination. Her portrayal of good and evil is by far one of the best written.  

My favorite color is Dark Red – but I always drive a black car. So red and black are my favorites, that is if black is really a color. 

ILMA: When did you start writing and what inspired you to become a writer?
My dad, before he died, wrote a wonderful book called McDuffy.  My grandfather wrote several parapsychology books. My sister is just an amazing humorist.  Guess it’s in the family genetics among other unique traits! But my inspiration came really and truly from a dream in which actor Johnny Depp ushered in the story line for the series.  It has expanded and flowered since that initial dream but I always give credit where credit is due. And Johnny if you are paying attention – thank you! 

ILMA: What projects have you done?  Any new projects coming up? 
My main writing experience before Twisted and Turned was writing business plans for software companies.  Yep… weird huh. Imagine if you will, the quite colorful me sitting in a business meeting blending with executives?   I was also ghost writer (scary huh). 

Twisted and Turned is my main project but just recently I have joined with a few great writers to create and write a TV series envisioned by Devon Beach.  A wonderful talented writer I met through my association with Vampire Diaries. It is an amazing series that will simply make you rethink the vampire world as you know it.  It is targeted for the teenage crowd so “no” competition with my adult minded series Twisted and Turned.

Intro in to the characters: http://tlynfletcher.wordpress.com/about-the-book-the-series-the-characters/

ILMA: What kind of pets do you own, if any?
I have a Teacup Yorkie who is my best canine friend.  I have been blessed with her in my life for over 10 years. Then there are the cats……..My oldest and by far my best friend is my black cat Frankie (short for Frankenstein). I found him on the side of the road when he was just a baby, he and I bonded instantly. He has super long fangs – makes a great familiar too. .  Opie (no I did not name him) is a buff tabby that my son Dylan adopted. Rupert, Raz, and Hanzo are my three Rag Doll boys. Rupert is a TICA champion. And, yes I do show cats as that is one venue I feel very normal and wow could I share some stories. Then there is DrAcula, oddly enough he has only 1/2 fang – weird huh.  Bellatrix is a solid white petite cat, Pickles is an outdoor grey cat (begged her to come in the house - she refuses) and last but not least there is Iddy Biddy and true to her name she is the youngest in the household.  

As you probably figured out, we rescue cats. Also been known to feed a stray baby possum or two.   

ILMA: Are you an independent artist or are you represented by an agency? 
Independent, but considering a few possibilities of late. While I want to be represented well, choosing the perfect match is time consuming. I am so involved in the series right now, I can’t think past the forest to see the trees. 

ILMA: Any favorite bands? Do you use music to inspire you as you write? 
My fiancĂ© G.W. Pierce is an amazing musician. He is just finishing up production on his new CD entitled “Let the Lady Dance”. I have to admit that Evanescence, (listening to that right now), Shinedown, and Muse are second best. I love the stories these artists tell through their music. 

I utilize music as simply a backdrop to my inspiration.  I can write with or without but it helps to silence this world allowing me to travel alone to my own. 

G.W. Pierce
ILMA: What advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field? 
That’s easy patience, perseverance, and a very thick skin.  Find a great editor that compliments your style and above all, hire a great publicist.  I have to admit I have the best publicist in the universe, Kim Weiss of BlueplatePR located in Raleigh NC.  She is such a wonderful person and actually has helped me edit quite a bit. She is amazing at creating a media buzz and that’s important.  Next don’t discount anything … at all. I have met people that have helped me in the most amazing but odd ways.  
Don’t worry about spelling and proper grammar when you write.  Just let it flow and write what you either see or hear. There is plenty of time to tweak you work.  Let me share a Stephen King quote that means quite a lot to me. It is simple but profound “Life isn’t a support system for Art it’s the other way around.”  Draw upon your experiences; we are all here for one reason or the other. And it could be your writings that change the world.  

ILMA: Anything you would like to share with readers on a personal note that would allow them to get to know you better? 
I am a very intuitive, spiritual person.  I often do speak to the dead – they have so much to say. I am also proficient at Remote Viewing therefore my kids know not to talk to me on the phone if they are not where they are supposed to be …. 

I have two great kids and three soon to be three great step-kids. I have a wonderful man in my life.  We live a normal home life.  Well, as normal as a couple can be when one practices the art of writing supernatural genre novels/series and the other a country musician, then add enough kids to classify us as the Brady Bunch.   Both of us are very eclectic, yet our kids are remarkably normal somehow ....

ILMA: Do you find it hard to share your work with others?
Hell no! I love people to read my writings.  I don’t read my own until it is edited so I rely on people to give me their feedback.  It is the people reading my work that give it a chance to breathe.



ILMA: Did your writing come from just a need to express yourself or a particular experience that you had? 
There is a bit of fact shaken from my family tree (but I’m not sharing what is true and what is not – leave that to your imagination). A good writer pulls from their own life experiences and there are plenty of those in the series. There are also those chapters/episodes within the series that are not relative to my current life. However as I write those seemingly foreign episodes I often experience the trauma of the moment as if I were there myself. Past life? Maybe, but totally mind blowing regardless!  Yet isn’t that what remarkable literature does?
