  • Flesh Eating Zombies

    August 15, 2014 by Suzi

    I’ve always like horror movies and books and one day I hope to write some of my own. I just haven’t developed any of my ideas yet. Too many other things to do.


    Today, I’ve got my friend’s, Rachel Schieffelbein, cover reveal for her upcoming zombie book. Not only does it have a creeptastic cover and an awesome title, but it has a totally unexpected ending. I loved it. So make sure you check it out.


    So make sure you check it out. Now… from Rachel.

    It’s cover reveal day for FLESH EATING ZOMBIES AND EVIL EX-GIRLFRIENDS!
    I’m so excited to share it with all of you! It’s creepy and dark and just right for the book.
    So without further ado, here it is!

    Erwin is in hell— Locked in his high school with his ex-girlfriend, her new pain-in-the-ass boyfriend, and a handful of others while zombies claw at the doors trying to fight their way in.

    The bright light in the dark is Sylvia, whose strength helps hold Erwin together when everything is falling apart.

    When they realize the school is no longer safe, Erwin is determined to keep the group together and get them all to safety.
    But he can’t save everyone.


    Release day is September 17th. Don’t forget to add it to your Goodreads list!

    I’ve got Kyra Lennon here today to talk about series writing. She is releasing the third book in her Game On Series and you must check them out.
     
    Welcome, Kyra and congratulations on your newest release. So I was wondering. Did you start writing the first, Game On, knowing it’d be a series?

     
    Nope, it was supposed to be one book, one story, but it got a little out of hand! One of my CPs suggested making it into a series shortly after the book was released, and early reviews told me that people were interested in the secondary characters as well as the main characters so I went with it – and here we are at Book 3!
     
    Are there any more planned?
     
    It will be a five book series. After that, no more lol!
     
    You have your novella, but have you written any other stand alone stories/novels?
     
    I have one standalone written, about a rock band, although there is potential for a companion novel. I also have two standalones half written, but I’m not really sure how they’re going to work out just yet. I will definitely be easing off on writing anymore book series for a while once Game On is finished!
     
    How did you pick which characters to do the stories about?
     
    Originally, the plan was for a four book series, focusing on Leah Walker (the MC from Game On) and her two best friends, Bree and Freya, with the final book going back to Leah. But Jesse Shaw was such a popular character in Game On, I decided it was worth giving him his own book. I have also had some suggestions that there should be a book dedicated to the Westberg Warriors beefcake, Bryce Warren, but I think adding any more books to the mix at this point would be a mistake.
     
    Bryce gets a lot of page time in the last two books, so I think people will be satisfied.

     
    Since your series has different main characters, how to do you keep track of all their personality traits and such. Are you organized with it all in a notebook(s)? Or on the computer?

     
    Haha, I am not organised at all! I think I do have anotebook around somewhere that has very, very basic notes in, but for the most part, the information lives inside my head, and just stays there until I’m ready to let it out!

     
    Thanks so much for interviewing me, Suzi! This was fun!

     
    Thanks for sharing with us, Kyra.
     

    At the age of twenty-one, Bree Collinson has more than she ever dreamed of. A handsome husband, a fancy house, and more shoes than Carrie Bradshaw and Imelda Marcos combined. But having everything handed to her isn’t the way Bree wants to live the rest of her life.

    When an idea to better herself pops into her head, she doesn’t expect her husband to question her, and keep her tied by her apron strings to the kitchen.

    Isolated and unsure who to turn to, Bree finds herself falling back into a dangerous friendship, and developing feelings for the only person who really listens to her. Torn between her loyalty to her husband and her attraction to a man who has the perfect family she always wanted, she has some tough choices to make.

    While Bree tries to figure out what she wants, a tragedy rocks the Westberg Warriors, triggering some dark memories, and pushing her to take a look at what’s really important.

    About the Author:

    Kyra is a self-confessed book-a-holic, and has been since she first learned to read. When she’s not reading, you’ll usually find her hanging out in coffee shops with her trusty laptop and/or her friends, or girling it up at the nearest shopping mall.

    Kyra grew up on the South Coast of England and refuses to move away from the seaside which provides massive inspiration for her novels.
    Her debut novel, Game On (New Adult Contemporary Romance), was released in July 2012, and she scored her first Amazon Top 20 listing with her New Adult novella, If I Let You Go.

  • Sisters (and brothers)

    March 23, 2014 by Suzi

    My friends, Kelley Lynn and Jenny Morris, just released their book, Road to Somewhere. It’s about two sisters, a roadtrip, and apparently cowboys. :) I haven’t had a chance to read it since I just purchased it last night, but I really like the storyline being about two sisters.

    I haven’t seen a lot of that in YA. More often when books involve siblings, it’s a brother/sister combination. Or, you typically have a ‘good’ sibling and a ‘bad’ sibling, but this doesn’t seem to be that way either.
     
    So I’m looking forward to reading this story about Charlie and Lucy. And I’m also curious about those cowboys. :)
     
    Let me know what other books you’re read about sisters OR brothers. Or if you’ve read Road to Somewhere.


    Road to Somewhere at Amazon or Goodreads

     
    For Charlie, a post-high school road trip isn’t just a vacation, it’s life changing. While her parents think she’s helping a friend move, a chance at fame is the real reason to grab her best friends and drive to L.A. But when her super annoying, uber-responsible, younger sister, Lucy, has to tag along, it isn’t quite the summer of fun she imagined.

    Add in a detour to her grandparents’ ranch in Texas, and between mucking the stalls, down-home cookin’, and drool worthy ranch hands, this could just turn into the best, and most complicated, summer of their lives.
