The first novel in a brand new series, CRIMSON SKY, the first 238 page novel of the DARK SKY books, marks the beginning of new characters as they forge their way through a shattered world, struggling to erase the perceptions left behind by their families, and relying on unlikely allies to survive horrors that have become commonplace…

cover and text

CRIMSON SKY is a steampunk horror novel set in the ruined city of Westraven, once a powerful city filled with trade, airships, and daring pirates. Ten years after a cataclysmic event known as The Storm, when the human populace has been desecrated by savage monsters– deemed Hellions– from another dimension, the remaining survivors are forced to hide underground, using their skills and instincts to scavenge and endure. Among these survivors is a young engineer named Claire Abernathy. Claire is shunned by her fellow survivors because of her parents failure in The Storm, and the only light in her life is her younger sister, Abby. But on a scavenging mission, Abby is kidnapped by the Hellions. When Claire is discovered by roguish marauders, she is desperate enough to make a deal with them, and their fickle captain, Sawyer. As their adventures begin and unexpected relationships begin to form, Claire learns secrets about her past, as well as Sawyer’s, and realizes that she could be connected to the Hellions in ways she never imagined.

I’ve wanted to write the DARK SKY series since I was fourteen years old. I love vampires and I love pirates, and I wondered what it would be like to mesh the ideas together. I was tempted to go the obvious route– a crew of pirates crosses paths with a vampire crew, and chaos ensues– but I just couldn’t fall into the idea the way I wanted to. So I left it alone for a little while, and a few years ago, the solution came to me when I discovered the amazingness that is steampunk. It’s a genre where literally anything is possible, and I saw no reason why I couldn’t meld the ideas into something cohesive.

I worked on creating a new, fantasy world with rich history (I made a map and everything!), adding more elements as I worked harder on the details. I did my research to understand what Claire would be capable of creating, and I thought carefully about how desperate people would become after living in a wasteland for a decade, barely seeing the sun. I especially thought about who would hold the power in a steampunk world filled with grounded pirates, and how they would mingle. Or clash. I’ve enjoyed building this world as much as any story I’ve ever written.

Just as exciting was writing the characters of Claire and Sawyer. While I have fun with the secondary characters, both protagonists are at the forefront. I loved writing the banter between them, and they have some of my favorite interactions. They’re both so different from one another, yet alarmingly alike in certain elements. They’re stubborn and strong-willed, loyal and defensive, and they both suffer from the burden of carrying secrets to preserve their family’s honor.

I wrote the story like a madwoman, loving it more and more. When I was presented with the opportunity to submit a story for Mocha Memoirs Press’s steampunk anthology, AVAST, YE AIRSHIPS!, I thought it would be a good idea to test CRIMSON SKY out. This was a new series after all, and completely different from my other urban fantasy trilogy, CURSED. I revised the work into a short story called LOST SKY, and submitted it. I was delighted to hear back from the anthology’s editor, Rie Sheridan Rose, who absolutely loved the story and was excited to include it. I learned a lot during that period, understanding how spotlights and blog tours could help in promoting my work. It definitely helped that my story was well received and enjoyed by many readers.

CRIMSON SKY had a fair amount of editing to do once it was finished. It was the first time I’d used a professional Beta reader, and I was amazed at how in depth they could be. I made some important changes and worked with my editor to revise and perfect the story. Every reader gave me positive feedback, particularly with the characters of Claire and Sawyer.

I continued to work with Deranged Doctor Design for the cover and promotional work, and while their covers for my CURSED series have been absolutely gorgeous, I got the best responses for CRIMSON SKY. The promotional material is incredible, and I find every opportunity I can to use it.

I think every author gets nervous when they have a new book released, especially one that’s part of a new series, but at time of putting this media kit together, I’ve found I’m not as terrified as I think I should be. I mean, yeah, the nerves are still there, but I feel confident with CRIMSON SKY and the DARK SKY series in general. I think a lot of readers will like it, and find it different from traditional vampire and steampunk stories. It’s a mix of everything– steampunk, horror, post-apocalyptic, fantasy– so hopefully it will cater to a wide audience. I loved writing it, so hopefully there will be people who love reading it.

Teaser1 1500x760

 

 Q: When you began writing Crimson Sky, did you know the direction the series would take?

A: Yes and no. I had an idea of what I wanted the characters to achieve, but I had no idea how they would get there. I didn’t really know what Claire’s key from her mother would be used for, and I was still working on the history between her parents and the Hellions. But the more I wrote, the better understanding I had of the series and how it should progress. Hopefully readers will want to continue reading into the second book, which will be just as exciting as the first.

Q: What were the challenges in writing Crimson Sky?

A: To be honest, I don’t remember the story being that challenging as compared to some of my other work. Oh, there were times where I had to sit back and really think about what I was doing, and the research was bland as ever, but I knew I had to move past the roadblocks and just get the story done. The more I wrote, the more eager I was to reach the end, just to see how it ended.

Q: What inspired the design of Westraven?

A: One of my favorite movies is The Lord of the Rings. They’re beautiful films and the set design is incredible. I loved the look of Gondor, and I actually based the setting of Westraven off that city. A flatter, less medieval version to be sure, but I liked the idea of a crumbling city of white stones. I have another steampunk series planned that follows the more traditional ideas of a derelict steampunk town, but I didn’t want to write the same setting for two very different series’. I also think that Westraven’s stony, broken look gives a certain, haunting echo to the story, and I think a lot of readers will like it. There are still places in and outside of Westraven that haven’t been seen yet, and I can’t wait for readers to see them.

Q: Why did you choose vampires as the monsters?

A: It’s true that vampires are overused in fiction. It’s not something that’s lost on me. But the thing with vampires is that they’re such a changeable species, and when you stick to the tradition (more or less), they will always be terrifying. I modeled them after the vampires from Thirty Days of Night– they hide in the shadows, are super fast and savage, and have their own, animalistic language. I can’t read those books or watch that movie without getting chills when I see those vampires. Plus, I like the idea that even after its destruction, the Hellions continue to suck the life out of Westraven and its inhabitants. That definitely seems to raise the stakes.

Q: What can we expect in future books in the series?

A: Dark Sky will be a collection of three full length novels and two prequel novellas when it’s all said and done. Right now, the sequel, Midnight Sky, is scheduled for release in August 2016, with the novellas to be released in October and December. The final novel is scheduled for February 2017. Midnight Sky will have a lot of surprise reveals and twists, and an ending I seriously doubt anyone will expect. There will also be a lot more chemistry and interactions between Claire and Sawyer, which I think will leave a lot of readers happy. The novellas will focus on the secondary characters, Gemma and Nash, and chronicle their adventures before they joined Sawyer’s crew. I won’t say anything about the third and final novel, because I don’t want to give anything away, but let’s just say that things are going to get dark for our heroes, and they’ll find themselves in places they never expected. And that’s a good thing, because you can’t write a steampunk pirate story without some wild adventures.

I usually do pretty hard-hitting political topics and Jesse had some analyses of politicians in the news that were right on point and very funny! My listeners went nuts and began calling in, jamming the phones and the emails to have Jesse give them some information about their own house numbers and birthdates and the syntheses and meaning between the two things. Two weeks later…I was still getting requests which I have forwarded to Jesse and which he has answered. He was a most enjoyable guest and I highly recommend him for radio and television programs.”

That Damn Dialysis: A Brighter Look At A Lifesaving Treatment

With more than 100,000 people diagnosed every year with end-stage renal disease and a chronic shortage of donated kidneys for transplant, dialysis is the only treatment option. But dialysis has its unique emotional, physical and financial costs, and no one knows it better than Cindy Barclay, author of That Damn Dialysis (Claybar Publishing).

After twenty years as a registered nurse working with patients diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, she is also the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Quality Dialysis, the leading staff-assisted home dialysis company in the state of Texas. Most important, however, is her commitment to being a patient advocate.

“I want people to understand the disease process and understand what is happening to them,” she says. “So I created a fictional character, Cledus B. Washington, and readers share in his experiences as a new dialysis patient.” That Damn Dialysis provides an empathetic account of what a dialysis patient goes through on a daily basis with medical personnel, family and friends, and covers everything from medical questions to matters of the heart.

An attractive, witty, and hardworking 50-year-old, Cledus’s world is turned upside down when he is diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. His girlfriend leaves him, his mother tries to take over his life, and his financial security is severely compromised as his world shrinks down to monitoring the buzzing sound of his “lifeline” that confirms he is alive. Cledus’s story, told with compassion and humor, encompasses the uncertainty, fears, and frustration of day-to-day living while coping with this disease.

Dubbed the “Diva of Dialysis,” Cindy Barclay has become one of Houston’s most respected and successful women in business. Cindy believes her professional success revolves around the fact that she sees herself not just a business woman, but as a patient advocate, bringing dignity and respect to her clients.  A single mom, Cindy raised two daughters, Gennevive and Maria, and resides in the Houston area.

Dr. Reid Wilson – Stopping The Worry Addiction

Stopping The Worry Addiction By Shifting Our Perspective, Facing Our Challenges,  And Regaining Control Of Our Lives

In Stopping the Noise in Your Head: The New Way to Overcome Anxiety & Worry (HCI Books—May 2016), Reid Wilson, PhD, addresses how worry can be an important asset when it forces our attention on problem-solving. But anxious worrying can cause us to unnecessarily focus on threat, to retreat and avoid, and to seek reassurance and safety—which is no way to foster a life of growth and excitement.

Using a playlist of YouTube videos that correspond with the release of his fifth published book, Dr. Wilson offers a groundbreaking, paradoxical approach to overcoming anxiety and worry by moving away from comfort, confidence, and security and willingly moving toward uncertainty, distress and discomfort. The videos can be accessed at: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqts1uGCm468oPTFWkQ4Ewb4tMUrKYqOC or through his website:http://noiseinyourhead.com/.  Through the use of unconventional strategies, readers will learn how to confront anxiety head-on and step forward into the face of threat. Drawing on a range of sources—from firefighters and fitness instructors to Sir Isaac Newton and Muhammad Ali—Stopping the Noise in Your Head demonstrates the importance of shifting our perspective and stepping toward our challenges in order to regain control of our lives.

Stopping the Noise in Your Head focuses on how to move into action while your mind and body are signaling you to back away. Reid encourages you to address the “noise pollution” in your head by determining if the issue is a Signal or is only Noise. A Signal is any legitimate worry that requires problem solving. Noise, on the other hand, reflects any thoughts that are irrelevant, irritating, unproductive, and repetitive. Reid’s solution involves a four-stage process. Step Back refers to your ability to gain perspective in the moment of distress. The most provocative move—Want It—emphasizes your decision to voluntarily seek out what you fear. Step Forward encourages you to move toward your task with this new point of view. Finally, Be Cunning instructs you how to be as clever as your challenger, Anxiety. According to Dr. Wilson, the most important tactic is willingly moving toward the fear: “To get stronger, you must take on tasks while you simultaneously doubt that you can manage them. Want to tackle challenges; seek out the tough encounters. That’s the attitude that will give you power.”

Highlights from the book include:

“I’m Willing to Experience This at This Moment”
― You are accepting a situation that already exists.
― Becoming upset about a difficult state of affairs is like moving into shock.
― It’s best to accept the present before we attempt to change it.
― When you stop fighting the present moment, you can turn all of your attention to ways to influence the next moment.

Choose to Become Distressed and Afraid
― You have to voluntarily and purposely choose to generate distress if you want to learn to manage distress.
― Go after what threatens you, welcome the discomfort, and allow the occasional punch in the gut from Anxiety.
― Give yourself a paradoxical message similar to “I actually WANT this feeling.”
― Choose to feel clumsy, awkward, unsure and afraid.
― Act on the mottos, “Love the mat” and “Run towards the roar.”

A Work of Fiction ~ A Training Scenerio for Our Country

The Massacre In Orlando Shows Just How Unprepared
Our Nation Is In The Fight To Stop Domestic Terrorism

Military expert, author and historian Dr. William R. Forstchen believes ISIS will soon target schools, interstate highways and churches in the U.S. “They said they’re bringing the war to us, to our children and civilians,” says Forstchen, “Sadly, it’s just beginning…”

This is the terrifying premise of his most recent book, Day of Wrath, which is again drawing significant attention.  A number of security experts and law enforcement officials observe that Day of Wrath is not just a warning, but should be viewed literally as a “training scenario,” when considering how to protect our schools from a terrorist assault similar to the massacres created by Islamic terrorists in Beslan, Russia in 2004 and Pakistan in 2014.

Although it’s a work of fiction, the actual threat is critical and highly probable. For that reason Day of Wrath went directly to ebook self-publication. “This story must reach the public immediately and should be used as a platform for debate as to how to respond and stop ISIS,” he explains. A print version is also available now.

Forstchen, author of more than fifty books, presents a horrifying but likely scenario in Day of Wrath. Forstchen’s heart-stopping novella brings home just how vulnerable our infrastructure really is. It is also a story of heroic efforts to save lives, while sounding a wake-up call to American citizens and their government.

William R. Forstchen is a New York Times bestselling author and holds a doctoral degree from Purdue University with a specialization in military history and technology.

He is a noted expert historian and public speaker and has been interviewed on FOX News, C-SPAN, and Coast to Coast on topics ranging from history to technology and cultural issues, to space technology development, to security threats. Other recent works by Forstchen include One Second After and One Year After, both NYT best sellers examining the potential threat against our nation’s electrical infrastructure by means of an EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) attack launched by Iran.

   Day of Wrath

Bob Petersen arrives with his daughter at the Middle Grade school in Maine where he teaches, expecting another regular day but worried about what recent ominous news reports might portend. Suddenly his school — along with many others across the United States — is under attack. Gunmen burst in, slaughtering children and adults alike. This novella by New York Times bestselling author William R. Forstchen imagines a horrifying scenario where, in the course of one day, the terrorist group ISIS carries out massacres in schools and on highways across the United States. With a surprisingly small but well-organized and ruthless force, the nightmarish devastation brings America to a state of near-paralysis. Author of One Second After and Pillar to the Sky, this heart-stopping novella brings home just how fragile our defenses and infrastructure really are. It is also a story of heroic efforts to save lives, while sounding a wake-up call to American citizens and their government. From the ISIS leader in Syria, to the murderous rampages throughout the U.S., Day of Wrath reveals with chilling effect how national panic and paralyzing terror at the spiraling violence can bring a mighty country to a near-standstill. Petersen’s fight to save lives and stop the merciless gunmen provides edge-of-the-seat drama. Day of Wrath is a provocative work that should stimulate an intense national debate. One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as the book everyone should read. “A THRILLING – AND TERRIFYING – TALE OF WHAT COULD BE OUR NEXT 9/11!” – W.E.B. Griffin & William E.
