Hart of Country Takeover Event Sunday

Today is the day when we finally see the cover for Kris Nacole’s Hart of Country! She’s holding a Facebook event for her cover reveal that will have loads of giveaways, author takeovers, games, and lots more. This is not an all day event, it’s just a few hours, from 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time to 4:30, so be sure to pop in and win some swag, author merch, and other cool stuff!





There will be a great variety of authors, including fantasy, dystopian, romance, and multi-genre authors (you’ve heard of Rocky Rochford, right?!). I’ll be giving away a signed paperback copy of my book along with a bookmark, a tea book and pin, and an Amazon gift card. Here’s the link for you to attend. I hope to see you there!

The Temperament Scepter Takeover Event Today

Amongst the Killing Author Takeover Event Today

Happy Friday! Are you looking forward to the weekend? I’ve got snow coming my way, so I’m especially looking forward to it!

amongst the killing audiobook release

Today is the Facebook party for Joe Compton’s Amongst the Killing audiobook release, and there will be 15 authors doing takeovers and sharing audio and video readings of their books! I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been to an event with so many authors personally reading from their books throughout one day, particularly online.

We’ll be chatting and sharing bits of our books from noon to 9 p.m. Eastern Time, so drop by and hang out for a while. At 3:30 I’ll read a previously unshared excerpt from Anatomy of a Darkened Heart, and I’ll even post an excerpt from Locke and Keye, never before seen. My time slot is from 3:30 to 4:00, so be sure to stop by and chat.

Hope to see you there!

Do You Write What You Read?

At some point during my writing career, I realized that my writing is completely unrelated to what I read. This seems very strange to me since it would make more sense if I wrote genres and styles in which I had reading experience. But I am quite the opposite. The only similarity between my writings and readings is that symbolism is ever present.

An example of the disconnect between my writings and readings lies in novels. I am a fan of both classic and modern/contemporary literature, the latter of which is harder to find. Both of these types of readings are in novel format. The only novels I have written so far are science fiction/action, which I don’t read. It’s fascinating to me that there can be such a strong disconnect between things that I think are so closely related for writers.

Do you notice anything like that with yourself? Do you write what you read, or are the two things completely unrelated for you, too?
