J. and K. Hollingsworth

Today I had the pleasure of being a beta reader for a book that will debut this year. The story is called simply “Jazz.” J. Hollingsworth memorized me with a tale of intrigue and spies. this thriller/romance is due to be in print around June when K. Hollingsworth–the other half of their team–will also release a novel.

I hope you will all be looking for these, sexy, fun bits of absolute pleasure.

So Many book…So Little Time

Sometimes I feel like the guy from Twilight Zone. Burgess Meredith, right? He had no time to read…and then the world ended. When he had all the time he could ever want–you remember what happened.

Yeah, that’s me. No, I haven’t broken my glasses. What I’ve done is taken time from everything else to continue writing. Now, you might ask, “Why isn’t that okay?”
It is. It’s fine. Unless of course you like my blog and notice I haven’t been around.

52a13338-2 Could this be Thornton??? Maybe. I digress.

That’s right. Me and my rainbow hair have been writing. Locked in my closet of an office, I have been churning out multiple pages like a mad man. Don’t be impatient with me. I promise I’ll have a new book out in the first quarter of 2014. Yay! Oh…and that I haven’t forgotten any of you. I still adore all of my fans and friends.

Let’s digest a little of the contents…
The book finds people caught up in a government plot to hide alien contact and the conspiracy goes way beyond expected interactions. they are among us…and they have been here quite a while.

Pros and cons of cooking:

Pros–

  1. The story is clear and well written.
  2. the plot is well thought out.
  3. the characters are engaging and well drawn.
  4. this is a good read for all sci-fi fans.

Cons–

  1. There are no dragons in the story.
  2. alien food might taste bad.

The Dragon says save this book for reading. Although a tasty treat, it will be much better consumed by the mind. This is an entertaining novel. Buy it! !!!!ROAR!!!!  It can be found at Amazon and where all alien trading posts books are sold.

Anastacia can be located in her nest on facebook, blog.and twitter,.

Passion

There is one thing that many authors seem to lack. In romance through horror the word is passion.

I’m not talking about the lovey, squishy, messy thing between consenting adults. Passion is an author’s burning need to tell the story. It makes the plot and the characters eat at him until he nearly bleeds words. It’s what sets any work apart from the mundane.

All of the craft experience in the world will net a miserable story without this key ingredient. Authors gather around and be honest with us readers.

So I ask you…Do you feel your story like the heat of a summer day, like the cold of a bitter night, like the very inside of your soul?
