Must Read Monday presents…Tracey!!

Hello all. Are you looking for a great book to read? Well I have one for you. Midnight Angel, Council Book 1. But first I want to introduce the talented author, Tracey Wood.

 

Hi Tracey. I am so glad you were able to join us today.

Hi Amy. Thanks for having me.

Now Tracey, what can you tell us about your book? (I love the title by the way.)

I can do better than that. How about I give you the blurb?

That would be great!

BLURB:   

After almost losing her life in a vicious, bloody attack. Kat Shaw, a thirty-something, divorcee, discovers that there are such things as monsters. And the predator who attacked her is not human. She starts to develop unusual skills which have murderous consequences. And is an unwilling witness to multiple, brutal murders, seen through the eyes a killer. Thrown into a battle of Good vs. Evil, she falls in love with two men who are not what they seem. While her attacker stalks her and continues to murder the innocent. She has to find the inner strength to take on and fight the demons from hell. To protect her family and friends while also trying to save her own life.

Wow, this sounds absolutely amazing. I  know I’m interested. Can you give us a little more? Like maybe an excerpt?

Sure, no problem. Here you go.

EXCERPT:

The park was empty at this time of night. All the children had gone home hours ago. The nights were getting colder and the evening air bit through my clothes, making me shiver. A light dew clung to my hair and skin as the darkness closed in around me, shrouding me from the main road.

After a long day at work, I made my way along the manmade path. It was a good shortcut taking fifteen minutes off my journey. I would soon be home, safe and warm.

What to have for dinner? Hmm. Pizza! Yeah, I’ll dial a pizza. Treat myself. Why not?

Happy with my decision, I carried on my way.

Pulling my jacket collar up around my neck, I tried to beat the cold and the shiver running up my spine.

A sharp pain shot through my head, stunning me, and suddenly I was flying across the path. My forehead hit the ground with an audible thump. Another powerful flash of pain. Black blotches blurred my vision as I tried to focus on my surroundings.

I attempted to get up but something struck my back, flattening me to the ground. The wind rushed from my lungs. I couldn’t move! A heavy weight sat on my back, holding me down. I struggled to draw enough air into my lungs. Something sharp penetrated my back, then my arms and the top of my leg. It was pure agony!

What’s happening? Have I been stabbed?

Tucking my flailing hands under my body, I attempted to get up, a silent scream trapped inside me, but the weight held me in place.

Snaking my body, I wriggled across the compact soil of the path, attempting to pull myself forward. It was no use. I couldn’t even get to my hands and knees.

My clothes were ripped from my back as the onslaught continued.

The pain slowly dulled, even though I was still at the mercy of my attacker. My heart pounded with fear as this predator snatched at my body. I was shaken violently from side to side. My gut told me my attacker was male. He was dominant, strong, and overpowering.

Oh God, this can’t be happening. No, please. I don’t want to die!

Glancing around frantically for a weapon, I realized I still had my keys in my hand. Without thinking, I slashed them behind my back with as much force as I could. They bit into something soft. Warm fluid flowed over me.

I had hurt him and possibly made him angrier. This unseen person was going to do the unthinkable. He was going to violate me, rob me of my life, or both. I desperately needed to get away from this monster. But how? I couldn’t fight back. Damn it, I couldn’t even move.

Nausea washed over me as my body weakened, my life draining away. A dark mist clouded my mind, consuming me, consuming my thoughts. I was going to die here in a lonely, dark park in the middle of London. I would never see my family and friends again.

Why? Why? I want to live. Help me, please help me, someone!

As if this monster had heard my silent plea, the shaking suddenly stopped. The weight lifted slightly and I could breathe. Relief washed over me.

Had the attack finished? Did he think I was dead?

I lay still, faking death, struggling not to take deep, gulping breaths. I fought the panic pumping through my body.

I became aware of a stroking sensation on my back, a light caress. Small strokes, followed by a sound I could not identify. The strokes became harder and the noise louder. A wet, squelching sound.

What is that?

My head spun with confusion and panic as I strained to locate my attacker. I saw a movement from the corner of my eye. I turned but couldn’t focus. It was too dark and I was in shock.

Warm liquid ran down my back, arms, and legs. Blood. My blood, but there was no pain, still no pain.

In a moment of clarity, I knew I had to move. To get away before my attacker struck again.

I don’t know about anyone else but I seriously got chills just from reading that. A good sign that a book is going to be an incredible read. Now that we know a little about your book, do you mind if I ask a few questions to find out more about you?

No problem. Fire away.

Okay great. First question. If you could pick another name for yourself, ANY name, what would it be?

I like names that go for a boy or girl like Charley, Danni, Mercedes. I think it would be something like Harley.

I love different names too. I always thought if I had another girl, I would name her Jemma. Okay, next question. If you had to pick one, what would be your pet peeve? The thing that drives you crazy?

I think it is more of a hate really. Its cruelty to animals. I can’t stand it.

I agree. I don’t understand how anyone could harm an innocent animal. It’s terrible. On a happier note, what is one thing you would LOVE to do?

I would love to be psychic so that I could help to solve crimes or murders.

Other than an author, I think that would be an awesome job. Speaking of authors, who is your favorite?

There are so many but Richelle Mead.

I’m sorry to say that I don’t know who that is. But I will definitely have to check her out. Last question. What is your greatest fear?

Spiders and Clowns

I can understand the spiders. They are so nasty. Ewwww. Thank you so much for being here Tracey. I hope that you will come back and visit again. Before you go, can you give us a quick bio and contact/buy links?

Thanks for having me. Here you go.

BIOGRAPHY:

Tracey A Wood has lived in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire in the United Kingdom, for all of her life. She has been married for over thirty years and has two children. One of her boy’s lives at home due to being disable the other has flown the coup. She has three cats that are her babies, and she talks to them all of the time. Funny thing is they don’t answer back.

She loves snowboarding, skiing, jumping out of aeroplanes and bungee jumping. Well, that is when other people are doing them. She prefers to have her nose in a book or writing one. She also loves to people watch which her husband is always telling her to stop doing. She has a job that she enjoys and works full time. Although if she won the lottery, that might change! She has also got a very good imagination.

In 2014, she decided to take the bull by the horns and send her manuscript to Soul Mate Publishing. She feels so privileged to have her book published, as this is the first one that she has written. It has made her dream of being a published author a reality. Life really is too short to wait, you’ve got to go for it. She is still working full time and is also working on another book in her limited spare time. Her favourite saying is ‘Everything happens for a reason’ which she also believes is true.

Her books are fast paced and centred on a female lead who finds an inner strength after being thrown into situations that are beyond her control.

Here to Tantalize Us…MJ!

Good morning everyone. Today on Tantalizing Tuesday, I have MJ Compton and her newest book, Omega Moon Rising.

Omega Moon Rising cover.jpg (2)

Hi MJ. It is always so exciting to have a new book release. What can you tell us about it?

I am so glad to be here. Thanks for hosting me. Here is the hook and the blurb for Omega Moon:

HOOK:

One desperate woman intent on escape.
One brash werewolf determined to deny his DNA.
Until his destiny becomes her deliverance.

BLURB:

Abigail Grant has a secret . . . and a plan to keep her younger sister from suffering the same fate. Her strategy would have worked if she hadn’t been seduced by sweet-talking musician Luke Omega. Suddenly she’s plucked from the life she wanted to escape, but her new circumstances only expose her to a different danger—or is it her salvation?
Luke has a secret, too. He believes he can change his destiny through willpower—and a little blue pill. When he inadvertently gets mixed up in the Grant sisters’ troubles and his pack alpha orders him to marry Abigail, his family insists he tell her he’s a werewolf. But Luke claims Abigail is not his life mate. She doesn’t need to know what happens to him on the full moon.
Until he accidentally stumbles across her secret. Then all bets are off.
Wow! This sounds incredible. Is there any way you can give us a taste of what is to come in your book? Like maybe a teeny excerpt?
Absolutely! Here you go:
Excerpt:

She, Abigail Grant, had a date with Luke Omega.
Gary was going to kill her. But Luke Omega would be worth the grief, with his dimples, blond curls, and the indent in his chin. Plus he was a celebrity. But most importantly, he said he would help her get her songs in front of Toke Lobo. After the concert was late, though, and if Gary ever found out, he would make her life miserable.
But she had a date with Luke Omega.
Abby thought about what the lateness might also mean—beyond being a better time to run into Toke Lobo. Luke had been kind to Libby, which meant he was either trying to impress her or he was genuinely a sweet guy. Since nice guys usually ignored her, he must be trying to score points with her by sucking up to her sister, who was difficult at best. Maybe he wanted sex.
Abby wasn’t much of a dreamer any more. When she’d been a little girl and her father was still alive, when she and Libby and Mama were the suns to Daddy’s moon, life had been full of possibilities. But a freak accident left Mama a widow with two girls to support. The last fantasy Abby allowed herself was that Gary and Mama got married because they loved each other. A whole week went by before reality betrayed her.
Nowadays, the closest she came to dreaming was wishing Mama would get better and divorce Gary. But Mama was dying and the family needed Gary’s paycheck and health insurance. Needed to keep paying the taxes on the little house on Silver Moon Terrace in order to keep a roof over their heads.
Abby couldn’t bring herself to tell Mama being homeless might be better. Safer.

This sounds like an incredible book. Now I know sometimes music inspires creativity and ideas. Do you happen to have a soundtrack to this book? Music that gets your creative juices flowing?
Definitely! I can’t write a book without a soundtrack.

Here’s the one for Omega Moon Rising:
1) “Monster” (Steppenwolf)
2) “Nature Boy” (Great Society)
3) “Bad Things” (Jace Everett)
4) “What Was I Thinking?” (Dierks Bentley)
5) “I Wish I Was the Moon” (Neko Case)
6) “It Ain’t Me Babe” (Bob Dylan)
7) “Whaddya Want From Me?” (Adam Lambert)
8) “Take Me to Church” (Hozier)
9) “I Guess He’d Rather Be in Colorado” (Mary Travers)
10) “Centerfold” (J. Geils Band)
11) “When Boy Meets Girl” (Terri Clark)
12) “Reflecting Light” (Sam Phillips)
13) “Leaving” (Indigo Girls)
14) “Someday Soon” (Judy Collins)
15) “Strongest Suit (Reprise)” (Aida Original Cast)
16) “Light As the Breeze” (Billy Joel)
17) “My Last Name” (Dierks Bentley)
18) “Yes, I Am” (Melissa Etheridge)
19) “Sometime in the Morning” (The Monkees)

Great songs and great artists! Musicians are such wonderful inspirations. Speaking of musicians, what was your VERY first concert? And who would you love to see now?
My very first concert was a summer event at Ralph Wilson Stadium—Jesse Colin Young, Santana, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

These days I would love to see . . . I wish I’d seen the Beatles and the Monkees when those groups were together. As far as current acts—my husband and I are trying to see as many of the musical icons of our youth as we can—I’m bummed I missed Janis Ian a couple of years ago when she played in a nearby town. Others I would love to see include Eric Clapton and Van Morrison.

Eric Clapton would definitely be a good one to see. That would make a nice date. Dinner and a concert. Oh hey, do you cook? If so, what is your specialty?

I love to cook. My specialty is experiments. I love to experiment with new recipes and new ingredients. 

New recipes are a lot of fun. Especially pasta ones. And sometimes nothing goes better with pasta than a nice wine. Do you ever drink? If so, what’s your poison?

My favorite alcoholic beverage is red wine. Preferably a Cabernet Sauvignon, but I like Malbec, Tempranillos, and Zinfandels.
On a hot summer day, though, there is nothing like cold sparkling wine. My favorite is Dr. Frank’s Blanc de Noirs, but there are lots of affordable bubblies out there.

Sounds like you know your wines. I’m just beginning to learn LOL. One more question. If you could be anything but an author and your current job, what would it be?

If I weren’t an author and could name my dream job, I would be a caterer for small events—such as dinner parties in someone’s home. Or cooking Friday meals for my Catholic friends during Lent. Or vegetarian kosher meals for Passover. I have a running joke with my critique group about starting my own business: Kosher for Lent.

Well it definitely sounds like you would be a great caterer. Especially with your love of cooking and trying new things.

I want to thank you for being here today and sharing details about your new book and about you. Before you go, can you tell us where we can find you and your books?

Absolutely!

Must Read Monday Presents…Ryan Jo!

Hello everyone! Well it’s Monday again. Back to work again. Yay! Yeah right, who am I kidding. But I do have something that might make your work week a little better. Ryan Jo Summers and her book Upon the Tide.
 Hi Ryan! I am so glad you could be here today. I just love the cover of your book. How would you sum up your book in one sentence?
Sure, here’s the hook:
Tossed together by happenstance, fleeing for their lives and falling in love under the Caribbean sun as paradise turns deadly.

 

That sure grabbed my attention. Got any more for us?

    New York Fashion designer, Piper Kincaid, just wanted a pleasant visit with her cousin down in Florida. That was before she and handsome beach bum, Kade Wyatt, become the targets of a gang of robbers and killers.
     Kade simply wanted some fish for his pet seagull. Now he and the lovely exec from out of town are caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse. He’s busy concentrating on Piper when he should be focusing on keeping them alive. 
     Fleeing for their lives aboard Kade’s houseboat, ‘The Hightide’, they experience risk, surprises, mystery and romance during the Great Caribbean Boat Chase. However, the biggest surprises are waiting for them back at port.
Wow! I can’t wait to read this.
Well, here’s a taste of what you’ll be reading…
“Thanks. So, tell me, have you ever taken this thing out into the ocean before?”
“Sure, lots of times. Usually I just take the Ebbtide, but Hightide’s been out into the Straits and further before. These trawlers are made to go clear to Europe if we wanted to.”
“Is that where we’re headed to?”
“No, just to the Bahamas and the Bermuda Triangle.”
She frowned. “Wait. Isn’t that where all those planes and boats have disappeared before?”
“There have been a few rumors of that happening,” he agreed slowly.
“Well, aren’t you concerned it could happen to us? That we could disappear?”
He cracked a grin. “If we do, the guys chasing us won’t be able to find us then.”
I found myself grinning just by reading this excerpt. I’m sure the rest of the book is just as good.
I’ve got some questions for you that will help your readers get to know you a little better. Ready?
Sure, let’s go.
Do you have any tattoos? What are they? If not, what would you want?
No, I don’t have any tattoos. However, if I were ever to get one, it would be a phoenix. The mythological bird that burned itself on a funeral pyre every so many years (500 I think) to rise from the ashes renewed and beautiful again. Why? When I left Michigan in 2004, to begin a new life in the south, I envisioned myself burning my old life to rise again someday. No there was no real fire, it was all symbolic. That is why I use phoenix in my email. At the time, it seemed fitting.

I’m sure that would look awesome! Okay, question number two. If you could live in another time, when would it be? Why?

The late 1880’s. I have read and watched westerns since I was a kid and fell in love with that period of history. Yes, it was hard and had some serious drawbacks, especially for women. (But to be honest, today isn’t perfect either) They were poised a few years from the dawning of a new decade, with new advancements and inventions constantly coming along. The country was still fairly new, honest and innocent. A person could make their mark based on their own efforts, good or bad, fair or honest. I really want to write more stories based in this time era. Why? It’s so much fun to mentally go back there!

What about a place? If you could move to a different state, what state would it be? Why?

Oregon, or the Pacific Northwest because of the climate. And it’s beautiful along the coast. I miss being near the water when I lived up north and suffer through the endless sun and heat of southern summers. I treasure cool, cloudy rainy days like gold. They are rare here in the south and common place in Oregon.

Are you a coffee drinker? How do you take it?

I love, love my coffee. I take it in a thick mug. With much raw, natural sugar and lots of whole milk. Sweet!! I do the same thing with my tea. Hot and I add a teaspoon of honey. Yum!

That sounds so good right now. I love coffee. It really gets me going in the morning. Okay, last question. What is one thing most people would be surprised to learn about you?

I have no sense of smell. Never have. It’s called anosmia. Totally true. My sense of taste is kind of wonky too but it’s all I’ve known. Can’t do heat and can’t get enough sweet.

Wow, I’ve never heard of that.  I can’t imagine not being able to smell. But then again, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad at times. Like when someone forgets to take the trash out. LOL!

Now that you’ve answered some in depth questions, can you tell us anything else about yourself?

Well, I am a North Carolina author who specializes in writing romances with a twist. Love stories blended with inspirational, paranormal, suspense or time travel–or several at once. I also writes non-fiction for regional periodicals. My dad is a songwriter and his aunt wrote poetry so I’m positive I came by my writing skill honestly. Apparently it’s in the genes.
My hobbies include bird-watching, houseplants (50 ish and growing), poetry and yard work. I love to gather with friends, hike in the forest with her dog, paint ceramics and canvas and work on wiggly word find puzzles. I live in a 1920 cottage with a menagerie of pets. Living in the mountains, I dream of the shore and frequently uses the water as scenes for my stories.
Ryan, thank you again for letting me host you today. Please come back anytime.

I’M FAMOUS…well sort of…

Hi everyone. Like it says above, I’m famous! Well, not really. But I feel kind of important today. Why? I am in the newspaper.

image

                        TA-DA!!

No, it’s not the New York Times but still, this paper circulates around all of NW Arkansas which for me, is big.

I hope it might be the beginning for more exposure for my first full length novel, Angel in the Shadows , and also for my short story, Second Chances, A Christmas Story, which is one of 8 Chritmas themed stories in the Soul Mate publication, Sizzle in the Snow.

image

image

I am currently working on the second book in the Angel series, tentatively titled, Stone Cold Angel.

Also, when Angel in the Shadows becomes available in print version, (around May or June of this year), I plan to begin do book signings. I am in the process of contacting a few places around NW Arkansas that would allow me to set up a book signing table.

But in the meantime, if you’re interested in a good book, please check out Angel in the Shadows or Sizzle in the Snow. Both are currently available on Amazon. And if you do purchase one of these incredible titles, please leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Reviews help us authors more than you can possibly know.

Saturday’s Special…Erin!!

Good morning all! Today I have Erin Bevan and her book, Wedding Day.

image

image

Hi Erin! I’m so glad to have you here today. So your book is called Wedding Day. Can you tell us a little about it?

Sure, here’s the blurb.

Famous Bull Rider Dallas Day met Cassie Bailey briefly in high school, but her plain looks and quiet personality left no lasting impression on him. Cassie, however, couldn’t say the same about Dallas.

Their paths cross again ten years later when Dallas is home recovering from an injury, and Cassie is the only veterinarian who volunteers her services at the home-town rodeo. She’s jump-starting her new practice, and every eligible man within a ten-mile radius is trying to land a date with the attractive vet.

Dallas’ older brother bets him that, even with all his charm and fame, Dallas can’t land a date with the reserved lady vet. Not one to turn down a challenge, Dallas makes it his mission to win a date with Cassie. After seeing her, he realizes they’ve met before, but he doesn’t remember her being so pretty. His persistence pays off, but when Cassie finds out about the bet, their new love is put to the test.

That sounds pretty intriquing. And like a fun read. How about a small taste?

Alright, here’s a sample. 🙂

“Is there anything I can help you with?” A deep voice asked from behind her.
“No, I think we have it.” She hopped down from the pen. Glacier blue eyes locked with hers. She would know his eyes anywhere. Her heart quickened just as it did the first time she’d ever laid her gaze upon him, and a tingling sensation shot through her.
Dallas looked older than she remembered, broader, gruffer, but still sexy.
Tucker, you have Tucker.
Where was he, anyway? In her haste to get ready, she’d forgotten to call him.
“Dallas? Yeah, we can use a hand.” Chevy still fumbled with the lock. “Can you come over here and help me with Knuckle Head? Dr. Bailey wants him to walk around so she can get a closer look.”
“I really don’t think that’s necessary–”
“I would love to help. That’s why I’m here.” Dallas jogged to the front of the bull and grabbed the lead rope with his left hand. A plastered cast circled his right wrist and rose halfway up his forearm.
She turned to Spencer and furrowed her brow.
Spencer stared back at her and displayed her pageant winning 2005 Miss Frisbee smile, her thumb up in the air. Some friend she was.
Dallas and Chevy led the bull out of the pen while she observed the bull’s gait.
“Let’s get him over by a water hose. I want to get a closer look at his foot.” She pointed toward a washing station and followed behind the men as they led the bull, sure to steer clear of Knuckle Head’s hind legs in the event he wanted to kick her.
From her position, she had a clear view of Dallas’s backside. Everything appeared to be as tight as she remembered, which did nothing to settle those distracting tingling sensations.
Focus.

Oh my…I think I’m falling in love with this book already. Do you have a particular book you remember? Like the first one you ever read?

Well, this is a tricky one because I can give you all the ones I had to read in school, but to me, those don’t count. I had no desire to read those books, so the first book I picked up because I wanted to read was something by Nicholas Sparks. I think The Rescue. From then on, I was hooked. 

I love Nicholas Sparks. Curling up with one of his books and a cup of hot cocoa or coffee…perfect. Hey, do you drink coffee? How do you take it?

At home, I put honey and almond milk in it. From Starbucks, I get an Iced Americano (depending on the day depends on the size, usually Grande, sometimes Venti) with two percent milk and two pumps of classic. 

Yum. Other than coffee, do you ever have a drink to relax or unwind? Pick your poison. What is your favorite alcoholic drink? 

43 with coke! 

I can’t say I’ve ever tried that one but it sounds good. Hey, I almost forgot, it’s Saturday. What are you. going to be doing tonight?

After putting my kids to bed, I usually go to bed, too. Boring, I know! But, despite the day, I’m pretty tired chasing everyone around so I sleep!

I hear you there. I’m actually at work right now. Just for fun, what is one job you would never want to do?

Trash Pickup. Yuck!

I don’t blame you there. But I have had some dirtier jobs than that believe it or not…:roll:

Can you give us a little background on yourself?

I was born and raised in Southwest Arkansas. I spent my teenage years working for my aunt at the local gas station flipping burgers and making milkshakes, dreaming of the day when something better would come my way, and it did in the form of a five foot six, one hundred and fifty pound engineer.

Nice….:mrgreen:

Fast forward ten years later, I found myself stuck inside an apartment in South Korea while my daughter went to preschool and my husband went to work. Alone and unable to speak the local language I turned to books for a friend. After reading a few hundred in such a short time, I decided to try my hand at writing one.

That’s always fun and scary rolled into one. ☺

Yeah. Well that first one sucked, but by the fifth and sixth book, I started to get the hang of this writing thing. Getting the first contract in the mail was a dream come true. Now, with three babies at home, I squeeze in stories one word at a time, one sentence at a time, one day at a time.

It’s hard to do when you have a family but you definitely prove it can be done. What about now? What’s your home life like?

I’ma full time mom, a full time wife, with a little writer sprinkled in whenever I can get the chance. And the laundry? Well, it’s best not to open the washroom door!

LOL! Erin, I want to thank you again for stopping by today. Before you go, where can we reach you? And buy your books?

Here to tantalize us…Angela

Hello all. Today I have Angela Archer and her new book, As the Liquor Flows.

image

image

Angela, the cover of your book looks incredible. What can you tell us about it?

Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, the day the stock market crashed, and the day Evelyn Ford will never forget. 

With the untimely death of her parents and the loss of their only income, Evelyn, and her brother, Frank flee to a make-shift hovel built in Central Park. 

After Frank mysteriously goes missing, bare cupboards force Evelyn to seek employment anywhere she can find work, even if that means working at a burlesque theater. 

Catching the attention of Don Vincent Giovanni, a Kingpin in the New York mafia, Evelyn discovers that Frank is serving time in prison for running hooch and he owes Vincent a lot of money. In order to pay off her brother’s debt, Evelyn is thrown into the world of mobsters and bootlegging. 

Between running hooch all over the city of New York and trying to save her brother, Evelyn finds herself drawn to Max Catalano, Vincent’s Consigliere. Even with secrets of his own, he’s the only one she can trust when she entangles herself herself in the middle of the New York mafia crime wars.

Wow! That sounds amazing! A definite must read!

Thanks! I really enjoyed writing it.

What can you tell us about you?

I live on a ranch with my husband, two daughters, and many farm animals.

A ranch! How cool. Have you always been around that kind of lifestyle?

Well, I was born and raised in Nevada, and grew up riding and showing horses from hunter jumper, English equitation, western pleasure, trail, and halter.
While I don’t show anymore, I still love to trail ride my paint horse, Honky. In December of 2007, I and her husband moved to Oklahoma.

How did you decide to become a writer?

From a young age, I always wanted to write a novel. However, I never believed I could write anything well enough for a publisher to even consider me. Every time the desire flickered, I shoved the thought from my mind until one morning, in 2009, I awoke with the determination to follow my dream.

It’s a good thing you did. Now you can do what you’ve always dreamed of.

And now for a little question and answer session:

Pizza or Cheeseburgers?
Pizza

What is your favorite candy? The one you couldn’t live without? Skittles. Especially the Wild Berry flavors in the purple bag.

Coffee drinker? How do you take it?
I’m ridiculously addicted to coffee and I’m a “hot blonde with sand” girl (lots of cream and sugar).

Pick your poison. What is your favorite alcoholic drink?
Anything with Tequila.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Grilled shrimp

Where can people find you and your book?

Here to tantalize us…Angela

Hello all. Today I have Angela Archer and her new book, As the Liquor Flows.

Angela, the cover of your book looks incredible. What can you tell us about it?

Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, the day the stock market crashed, and the day Evelyn Ford will never forget. 

With the untimely death of her parents and the loss of their only income, Evelyn, and her brother, Frank flee to a make-shift hovel built in Central Park. 

After Frank mysteriously goes missing, bare cupboards force Evelyn to seek employment anywhere she can find work, even if that means working at a burlesque theater. 

Catching the attention of Don Vincent Giovanni, a Kingpin in the New York mafia, Evelyn discovers that Frank is serving time in prison for running hooch and he owes Vincent a lot of money. In order to pay off her brother’s debt, Evelyn is thrown into the world of mobsters and bootlegging. 

Between running hooch all over the city of New York and trying to save her brother, Evelyn finds herself drawn to Max Catalano, Vincent’s Consigliere. Even with secrets of his own, he’s the only one she can trust when she entangles herself herself in the middle of the New York mafia crime wars.

Wow! That sounds amazing! A definite must read!

Thanks! I really enjoyed writing it.

What can you tell us about you?

I live on a ranch with my husband, two daughters, and many farm animals.

A ranch! How cool. Have you always been around that kind of lifestyle?

Well, I was born and raised in Nevada, and grew up riding and showing horses from hunter jumper, English equitation, western pleasure, trail, and halter.
While I don’t show anymore, I still love to trail ride my paint horse, Honky. In December of 2007, I and her husband moved to Oklahoma.

How did you decide to become a writer?

From a young age, I always wanted to write a novel. However, I never believed I could write anything well enough for a publisher to even consider me. Every time the desire flickered, I shoved the thought from my mind until one morning, in 2009, I awoke with the determination to follow my dream.

It’s a good thing you did. Now you can do what you’ve always dreamed of.

And now for a little question and answer session:

Pizza or Cheeseburgers?
Pizza

What is your favorite candy? The one you couldn’t live without? Skittles. Especially the Wild Berry flavors in the purple bag.

Coffee drinker? How do you take it?
I’m ridiculously addicted to coffee and I’m a “hot blonde with sand” girl (lots of cream and sugar).

Pick your poison. What is your favorite alcoholic drink?
Anything with Tequila.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Grilled shrimp

Where can people find you?
