Author Interview: Martha J Allard

Today I am happy to introduce author Martha J Allard to my blog.

Black Light Front Cover small copyHello 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:

L.A. 1983

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.

Author Interview: Barbara Gaskell Denvil

Today I am fortunate to have author Barbar Gaskell Denvil on my blog.

grandma 2Hello 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

Character Interview from Shadow Stalker

Recently, I was fortunate enough to interview Renee Scattergood on my blog (you can read that here). Today I am interviewing the protagonist from her book series, Shadow Stalker.

Shadow Stalker Part 1 Small

Hello, can you tell us your name and a bit about yourself.

My name is Makari. I’m the son of the emperor of the Galvadi. I’m a shadow stalker by birth, but I was not raised on the Dark Isle with the others of my kind.

Where are you from and what is it like there?

I grew up on Nadiria, an island in the far south of the Serpent Isles. It’s not quite a tropical climate, but we do not get snow and it tends to stay fairly warm year round. The winters do get cold, but not unbearably so. Nadiria is the capital of the Galvadi Empire. I admit I haven’t seen much of it since I grew up in an academy from the age of five. Before that my father kept me locked up in a small room in his palace most days. I didn’t see much of Ostara, the city where my father lives and the capital of Nadiria, during my childhood, but judging from what I’ve seen as an adult, I haven’t missed much. It’s an old city and my father does little to keep it from looking run down. Read more
