Tricia Sanders talks about Death, Diamonds & Freezer Burn and Murder is a Dirty Business

Image
  Welcome to amazing author Tricia L. Sanders! Tricia L. Sanders writes cozy mysteries and women’s fiction. She adds a dash of romance and a sprinkling of snark to raise the stakes. Her heroines are humorous women embarking on journeys of self-discovery all the while doing so with class, sass, and a touch of kickass. Tricia is recent transplant to Texas, but she’s still an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan, so don't get between her and the television when a game is on. A former instructional designer and corporate trainer, she traded in curriculum writing for novel writing, because she hates bullet points and loves to make stuff up. And fiction is more fun than training guides and lesson plans.

  Welcome to children's author Ekiuwa Aire, whose book cover I totally adore! Ekiuwa Aire was born and raised in Benin City, Edo, Nigeria. She moved to England when she was nine and it was here, away from all she had grown up with, she discovered her passion for writing. Ekiuwa co-wrote her first book while finishing high school and continued developing her craft while earning a Bachelor of Economics and a Master of Business Administration. She is passionate about African history and incorporates the richness of many cultures into her books. Now a mother living in Canada, Ekiuwa hopes that her books will help kids develop an appreciation for African history, and to value the wisdom and pride that will come from this knowledge.   What is your latest release? Idia of the Benin Kingdom . It is a children's book a true African Warrior queen who lived over 500 years ago. What are you working on now?

Sharon Daynard talks about Murder Points North

Image
  Welcome to debut author Sharon Daynard! Have fun! Sharon Daynard’s writing runs the gamut from light and quirky to downright dark and troubling. Her debut novel, Murder Points North , takes a humorous spin on murder in a small town. Her short stories include “The Boss of Butlers Square” which received Honorable Mention for the Al Blanchard Award and “Widows Peak” which was nominated for a Derringer Award. https://www.facebook.com/Sharon-Daynard-Author-115008529900120/ https://twitter.com/sharondaynard?lang=en What would you say are your strengths as an author? I’d have to say my greatest strength as a writer is the ability to write both humorous and downright creepy. Sometimes it’s hard to pick one specific genre for my work. My stories are humorous, twisted, dark, and sometimes a combination of all three. I like venturing into the dark side to keep the reader off guard. I don’t know what it says about me, but there’s always at least one scene that makes me laugh. How often

Round Robin Blog Fest November 2020

Image
  Welcome back for another fun Round Robin Blog Fest!! This month, we have a topic I can totally get into. We are talking about:   Review or recommend a book, a short story, or an online article,  or a post on someone’s blog. Considering my entire blog has been overtaken by books, authors, and other fun things, I thought I'd chat about why and how I do what I do! In September 2019, I decided to use my blog for good. I began to host authors who wanted another way to promote their books. I started off with hosting 1 author every Sunday and called my blog Escape with a Writer Sunday. My plan was to ask them a few interview questions, feature a book or two and share it all to social media. I have to admit, I was afraid I'd be begging for authors and it wouldn't last long. WRONG! My first author interview post was September 29, 2019. By the end of 2020, I will have hosted 80 authors and each have promoted 2-3 books per post. Not bad at all! In fact as of the end of September 20

Image
  Welcome to my good friend, Harry Posner!  Harry and I have been friends for many years and I can never read any of his writing without hearing that smooth voice that lingers from word to word like a fine musician plays notes on a piano! Without further ado.... Here's Harry...   A member of The Writers Union of Canada, Writers Ink Alton, Headwaters Writer Guild, and Associate Member of the League of Canadian Poets, Harry Posner is the author of six books and two spoken word CDs. Harry is Dufferin County's Poet Laureate, organizer and host of the annual Day of the Poets festival in Orangeville, Ontario, Canada, and co-host with Peter Noce of The Sill podcast (www.thesillpodcast.com). What genre do you write? If I had to pin it down, I would say that I’m writing in the literary fiction genre. You know, the kind of writing you shake your head at and say, “Now, what in the heck is this writer going on about?” Often, as well, my poetic tendencies creep into my books and st
