Today I am happy to have author D.R. Shoultz on my blog.
Hello D.R. Can you describe yourself in a few sentences.
I grew up in a small, Midwestern town, the son of a self-employed home builder. I was a better than average student and an athlete in high school, but quickly became a small fish in a big pond at college. After graduating with degrees in education and mathematics, I spent 32 years in corporate America where I traveled the world and uprooted my wife, son and daughter eight times. Shortly after retirement, I lost my beautiful wife of 33 years in a traffic accident. I spent the next several years finding myself. After a long-distance relationship, I married Claudia in 2012, who not only became my wife, she became my writing partner and editor. We live in the Blue Ridge Mountains with our rescue dog, Milo. Our interests include reading, writing, hiking with Milo, golfing, drinking wine at sunset, and spending time with friends and family. Read more

My series of books for middle graders and young adults is a space fantasy called Forgotten Princess. It is based loosely on the tale of Snow White.
Evil alien Queen Kalysta has been seeking to destroy her step daughter, and sent her assassin slave, called the “Shadow Man”, to kill the princess.
The Shadow Man, a mutant who is known as Gavyn to his friends, could not bring himself to kill the princess, but poisoned her temporarily, leaving her comatose and with amnesia. He hid her in an underground world where three alien teens joined together to rescue her.
But the past the princess cannot remember is coming back with a vengeance to destroy her. And the friends must fight for her survival. The first novella in the series is Impulse, and is available now from a wide variety of on-line retailers.
Today I am happy to introduce author Martha J Allard to my blog.
Hello Martha. Tell us about your book? What is it about?
I’m happy to. Black Light is my first published novel. Here’s the blurb:
Trace Dellon knows exactly what he wants: the white heat of the spotlight. When his band Black Light is offered a record deal, Trace grabs for it. He will do anything to make it.
Bass player Asia Heyes knows what he wants, too. It’s not fame or the adoration of groupies. It’s Trace. It’s always been Trace. Though it’s been unspoken between them, Trace’s other lovers—his audience—push Asia aside.
With the record contract, Albrecht Christian comes into their lives. He has everything but what he needs to live: the energy that runs just under Trace’s skin.
When everything crashes with a bullet, they all learn the truth. Rock and roll, like magic, requires both love and sacrifice.
Today I am fortunate to have author Barbar Gaskell Denvil on my blog.
Hello Barbara. Tell us about your books. Is there one in particular you are promoting right now? What is it about?
I write principally historical fiction, but my new book, published on 2nd June and available in ebook and paperback editions, is just a little different. This novel, Fair Weather, is set in England during the reign of King John and the historical setting is lush, rich and important to me and to my storyline. However, the plot includes time travel, and the modern heroine goes back to inhabit the mind and body of a young girl at a most important and unexpected moment of her life. The link between my two heroines is very important, and unfolds gradually. There is a large paranormal element, and the hero links true history to dark evil of myth, cult and power of the paranormal.
This is a novel of mystery and adventure with a strong romantic theme. It is highly unusual in many ways, and I believe that the characters are particularly vivid.
Start reading – and you will be welcomed into a new world of danger, threat and mystery where the poor of London in the early 13th century discover a greater ruin than poverty, a greater threat than discomfort and a greater power than the king’s. But stopping the inevitable can only be achieved by travel through time, and knowing more about the past and the future before accepting the present. Read more
