A blog about our adventures becoming a published Indie Authors. Here you will find advice, humor, and stories about what we've learned on our journey, along with books reviews, as well as great advice from other authors we've met on our journey. It's a long road, but the things you'll see and experience along the way can be very interesting.
Is there a lover of the paranormal or science fiction in your life? Wondering what you might get them for a gift this year? Well then here's a deal you won't want to pass up!
Starting now and ending at midnight on November 30th, all three books in the Para-Earth Series are just $1.49 (1/2 off the regular price of $2.99). That's right, you can now get all three books for yourself, or for someone's stocking, for less than $5.00!
And remember the Para-Earth Series has something for everyone:
Ghosts, psychics, vampyres, shamans, parallel realities, mystery, love, suspense, humor, action, suspense... in short, the WORKS!
Each novel has earned 4 and 5 star reviews! Not bad for a series that is still growing. Each story stands on its own, but is also part of an ever growing story arc.
-It all begins with "The Bridge" where a stone bridge built in the 1700's is haunted by the mysterious White Lady, who supposedly seeks the baby she lost. But in reality she is also trying to warn others of the terrifying secret that lies hidden within the bridge itself.
-The adventures continue in "The Ship" where we find Cassandra Elliott and Julie Cloudfoot, having just survived the terrifying encounter at the bridge, now find themselves facing a living ghost ship which has designs on the psychically endowed Cassandra its new navigator.
-"The Vampyre Blogs - Coming Home" introduces a whole new cast of characters which includes Nathan Steward, the last surviving soldier of the Civil War, who's extended lifespan comes from his terrifying encounter with in a Para-Earth where he encountered life forms that defied description. Only now one of those beings has found its way into this world, and Nathan is the only force who can stop it. But to do so may cost him dearly. For if he fails, it will not only mean losing his own life, but the lives the of those whose families he has watched over for the last 150 years.
Like Terry Pratchett's Discworld, all the stories in my series take place in the same universe. And with time, many of the characters will meet and encounter new threats as well as finding themselves having new adventures together. Two new books are scheduled to be added to the series next year, so dive in now because the wonders and adventures are just beginning.
Plus, if you order through Amazon or Barnes and Noble, you can not only gift any/all of these books to someone, you can also schedule what day you want the book(s) to arrive, like maybe Christmas Day or during Hannukah? Or maybe someone has a birthday coming up, you can take care of that shopping now and know it will arrive on the right day.

Recently there's been a lot of discussion of Amazon Kindle's latest program... "Kindle Unlimited".
Now for those of you have heard but don't know a lot about it, here's a quick recap in a nutshell.
*Remember: this is only a brief overview and not an in-depth piece. I understand there are still some details to be ironed out*
With Kindle Unlimited, you pay $9.99 a month to have unlimited access to Kindle books through Amazon. You don't have to 'buy' the books, you simply have access to them. Sort of like a private library that you pay a monthly fee to have access to. Now considering there are literally thousands of books on Kindle this is a pretty good deal for consumers. You can sample and read any the books and decide if you actually want to purchase a copy for yourself in e-book or maybe go for an actual print copy, without wondering whether or not the book is to your taste.
So on the surface, this sounds pretty good right? So how does thi…
REVIEW BY HELEN KRUMMENACKER
I’m starting this book review with the book still unfinished. It’s the kind of book that you think about a lot while reading it, even as you itch to turn the pages again. I can’t compare it to the movie or TV show, as I wanted to read it rather than watch it. I would advise this, although the adaptations may be excellent. The voice of the narrator is crucial. The voice of the narrator is crucial to the story’s style. We begin, a little scared, a little confused, picking up meaning from tiny details-- because that is what she can give us. Her voice becomes clearer, gradually, as she moves farther from the drugging and brainwashing and has time to rebuild her story and factor in the new things. But even ¾ of the way through, I still don’t know what goes on in the colonies that has her worried about being sent there, or what the real fate of Unwomen is. Sometimes, it sounds like she’s afraid of being executed and sometimes it sounds like there is something w…
First I'd like to thank all the guest bloggers, authors, and reviewers who were so kind to supply our blog with posts. It gave me some much needed time to get some rest and help family members who had suffered a terrible loss. It also allowed us to get back to work on our anthology “The Vampyre Blogs – One Day At a Time” which will be coming out in early October, a perfect time for creepy stories and tales of encounters with strange beings. With only two stories left to be completed and edited, we will soon be lining up Beta-Readers and then doing our final edits. Work has also been progressing on “The Door” latest full-length novel in the Para-Earth Series, and “The Pass” the first installment in a brand new series co-written with Richard Caminiti.
In the meantime, I have been studying and purchasing the necessary equipment to begin audio-readings. As you can see below I've been slowly setting up a “Recording Studio” in our office/guest room.
