Author Interview Hostile Takeover

hostiletakeoverbanner

I’m hosting an author interview for the book tour for “Hostile Takeover”. I hope you enjoy the interview, and thanks for author K.S. Ferguson to respond to my interview questions.

Q: Please tell us about yourself.

I have enough college degrees to paper the living room. I’ve worked a wide variety of jobs, including motel maid, vet tech, vocational rehabilitation counselor, and technical writer in the computer industry. When I got my first tech writing job 15 years ago, I had to pinch myself to believe that a company would pay me big bucks and provide all the latest equipment so that I could spend all day putting words on the screen. Eventually, the shine wore off and I got a good look at the seamy side of corporate life.
Q: Tell us about your book.

It’s a mystery/thriller in a futuristic setting and the sequel to Calculated Risk. Rafe McTavish, self-made man, has given up running his own company to take over the CEO spot at EcoMech. He sees it as the logical way to pursue an unknown blackmailer, and also does it because he owes the EcoMech chairman, Aaron Goldman, a debt of honor. Kama Bhatia, corporate hacker and spy joins him. She’s convinced he’s taking too many risks. She’s there to watch his back.

Rafe is overwhelmed with problems: EcoMech is in deep financial trouble and experiencing labor riots; another corporation is maneuvering to take over EcoMech; and Rafe’s father wants him gone from the company. Kama, the woman he thinks just may be the love of his life, is not a team player. He can’t make a future for himself or EcoMech unless he faces down the demons from his past.


Q: What inspired you to write Hostile Takeover?

Hostile Takeover is the sequel to Calculated Risk. After 15 years working in corporate America, I felt like I had something to say about what goes on there. I’m also interested in people and how events in their lives force them to change. Those are things I explore in the story.


Q: How much time per week do you spend writing/editing your work?

Not nearly as much time as I would like. Real life intrudes on my fictional worlds all too often. If I’ve had a long day on a free-lance writing job, trying to work on a novel is a no-go. At those times, I’ll often read something I’ve already written or grab a notebook and pen to work out answers to story problems instead of pounding on the keyboard. That’s why I find daily writing quotas unrealistic. On a really good day, I’ll spend ten hours writing. Those don’t happen often.


Q: If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?

Ursala K LeGuin. I heard her speak once. She’s so smart, so inspiring, and has such interesting things to say. Possibly Dean Koontz. While I’m not a horror fan, I admire his high-quality writing. I don’t know who I’d select for a third. Many of my favorite authors—Dick Francis, Tony Hillerman, Agatha Christie—are deceased now.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?

I’ve just released No Place Like Hell, the first in a supernatural PI series. I’m working on Undercover Madness, the sequel to Touching Madness, a contemporary fantasy set in a universe of alternate dimensions populated by magic-wielding Neanderthals, technologically advanced Raptors, and real estate manipulating demons. In my spare time, I’m trying to promote all my books and find my audience. Promotion is a time-sink that I’ve been avoiding, but that isn’t a successful strategy in the current marketplace.

Hostile Takeover

HTKindleCoverTitle: Hostile Takeover

Author: K.S. Ferguson

Genre: Mystery / Thriller / Sci-Fi

Rafe McTavish, security expert and new CEO at interplanetary mega-corp EcoMech, and his undercover ally Kama Bhatia, hacker and corporate spy, continue their pursuit of a ruthless blackmailer in the sequel to Calculated Risk.

When Rafe’s arrival on EcoMech’s frontier colony world ruins their adversary’s plan for supremacy, events take a deadly turn. As tensions amongst the workers rise and unrest turns to violence, Rafe and Kama must race to unmask a killer before Rafe and his family fall victims to a murderous hostile takeover.

Book Excerpt

Excerpt One: From “The Angelic Letters”

My dearly beloved son Eukairos;

I am writing to you concerning the inestimable responsibility and priceless charge who has been entrusted to you. You have been appointed guardian angel to one Mark.

Who is Mark, whose patron is St. Mark of Ephesus? A man. What then is man? Microcosm and mediator, the midpoint of Creation, and the fulcrum for its sanctification. Created in the image of God; created to be prophet, priest, and king. It is toxic for man to know too much of his beauty at once, but it is also toxic for man to know too much of his sin at once. For he is mired in sin and passion, and in prayer and deed offer what help you can for the snares all about him. Keep a watchful eye out for his physical situation, urge great persistence in the liturgical and the sacramental life of the Church that he gives such godly participation, and watch for his ascesis with every eye you have. Rightly,when we understand what injures a man, nothing can injure the man who does not injure himself: but it is treacherously easy for a man to injure himself. Do watch over him and offer what help you can.

With Eternal Light and Love,
Your Fellow-Servant and Angel

My dear son Eukairos;

I would see it fitting to offer a word about medicating experience and medicating existence.

When one of the race of men medicates experience by means of wine, that is called drunkenness. When by means of the pleasures of the palate, that is called gluttony. When by means of other pleasures, it is called lust. When by means of possessions and getting things, it is called avarice. Escapism is an ancient vice and a root of all manner of evils: ancient Christians were warned strongly against attempting to escape this world by medicating experience.

Not that pleasure is the only way; medicating experience by mental gymnastics is called metaphysics in the occult sense, and medicating experience by means of technology is a serious danger.

Not all technologies, and perhaps not any technology, is automatically a problem to use. But when technologies become a drone they are a problem. Turning on a radio for traffic and weather news, and then turning it off, is not a drone. Listening to the radio at a particular time to devote your attention to a concert is not a drone. Turning on a radio in the background while you work is a drone; even Zen and the Art of the Motorcycle Maintenance discusses what is wrong with mechanics having the radio on in the background. And texting to get specific information or coordinate with someone is not a drone, but a stream of text messages that is always on is a drone. Technology has its uses, but when technology is a drone, noise in the background that prevents silence from getting too uncomfortable, then it is a spiritual problem, a tool to medicate experience. And there are some technologies, like video games, that exist to medicate experience.

(Of course, technologies are not the only drone; when Mark buckles down to prayer he discovers that his mind is a drone with a stream of thoughts that are a life’s work to quiet.)

More could be said about technologies, but my point here is to point out one of the dangers Mark faces. Not the only one, by any means, but he has at his disposal some very powerful tools for doing things that are detrimental. It’s not just a steady stream of X-rated spam that puts temptation at his fingertips. He has all the old ways to medicate experience, and quite a few powerful technologies that can help him medicate his experience as well. And for that he needs prayer.

But what is to be done? The ways of medicating experience may be in some measure than many saints have contended with; the answer is the same. Don’t find another way to medicate experience, or escape the conditions God has placed you in, trying to escape to Paradise. Don’t ask for an easier load, but tougher muscles. Instead of escaping the silence, engage it. Prayerfully engage it. If your dear Mark does this, after repenting and despairing of finding a way to escape and create Paradise, he will find that escape is not needed, and Paradise, like the absent-minded Professor’s lost spectacles, were not in any of the strange places he looked but on his nose the whole time.

A man does not usually wean himself of drones in one fell swoop, but pray and draw your precious charge to cut back, to let go of another way of medicating experience even if it is very small, and to seek not a lighter load but a stronger back. If he weans himself of noise that medicates uncomfortable silence, he might find that silence is not what he fears.

Watch after Mark, and hold him in prayer.

Your Dearly Loving Elder,
Your Fellow-Servant,
But a Wind and a Flame of Fire

Book Review Saving Jamie

Saving Jamie 3-DTitle: Saving Jamie

Author: Carol Braswell

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Buy: Amazon

Her secret can get her killed!

The only thing standing between Jamie and the Cartel is FBI agent Rex Garret, but he can’t protect her when she disobeys orders. When a dead body turns up and evidence places Jamie at the scene she becomes the number one suspect. Will he have to arrest the woman he’s come to care about or will he find her dead?

Can he save her this time?

Jamie Kenner barely escapes abduction alive, but at what cost? A traumatic head injury leaves what little memory she has left almost useless. An unlikely friendship with a reclusive, but kind rancher eases her pain and frustration. Yet something isn’t right. Fear haunted her. A secret is locked inside her head, dancing just out of reach…a secret someone is willing to kill for.

I love romantic suspense, so I couldn’t miss out on this one. The writing was great, and author Carol Braswell has the ability to make her characters shine. Both Jamie and Rex have interesting personality traits. Jamie is strong, independent, smart, and courageous. She’s the perfect heroine – she has a lot of flaws too, but they balance her personality, making her even more interesting.

There were several surprises along the way, and I never knew what to expect yet. If you want a romantic suspense that does not just focus on plot, but has entertaining characters as well, then I’d say you should pick up a copy of “Saving Jamie”.

Book Excerpt

PROLOGUE

There was a stranger in my house.

I knew it wasn’t Trent and Marie. They had taken a father-daughter trip to the beach. My duties as a kindergarten teacher didn’t allow me the luxury of a three-day vacation, nor did the ridiculous cold I’d caught, and so I had stayed home by myself.

Normally, I would just shake it off as house-settling noise, but there was one slat in the kitchen’s hardwood floor near the stove that made an unmistakable creak if you stepped on it. No way in hell I could shake that off, not when I was home alone.

I slipped from beneath the comforter and knelt beside the bed, my fingers finding the cool metal of my trusty baseball bat. My daughter was only seven years old and I wouldn’t let Trent bring a gun into our home, so we had agreed to this as our form of protection. Ears straining, I opened the bedroom door, praying the hinges remained silent, and tiptoed to the stairs. Silence. A normal person would go back to their room and sleep, but there was a cold feeling in my chest that whispered something was wrong.

The carpet was soft under my bare feet as I crept down the steps one by one. The staircase spilled into the foyer and from where I could see, the front door was still locked. No broken glass or muddy footprints. I turned to the left and peeked around the corner to see into the living room. Every shadow looked like an intruder. I knew it was just my paranoid brain going into overdrive so I ignored it and carefully maneuvered past the den to the dining room. Nothing here either. That left the kitchen.

I pressed my back against the wall, closing my eyes and saying a quick prayer that I was just a hyper-vigilant crazy lady before darting around the corner.

The kitchen was empty.

I licked my dry lips and snuck over to the double doors that spilled out onto the patio and the backyard. I pushed the curtain aside. Darkness greeted me. Nothing more. False alarm. I was indeed a hyper-vigilant crazy lady.

I started to lower the bat and turn around, but then I felt something cold and wet on the bottom of my foot, between my bare toes. Confused, I knelt to touch it with my fingertips. As soon as I was close, the smell hit me even through my stuffy nose.

Gasoline.

Then the floorboard creaked again.

I whirled around. A man stood there swathed in shadows and black clothing, but that wasn’t what caught my attention.

He was holding a gigantic scythe.

I screamed as he swung it at me and threw myself into a forward roll. The enormous blade crashed through the window in the back door, sending glittering shards all over the floor. I scrambled backwards on my hands and knees until my back hit the legs of the table and then got up.

I brandished the bat at the intruder. “Who are you? What are you doing in my house?”

His voice was so soft I almost didn’t hear it. “I am sorry, but your death is necessary for the safety of mankind. Please forgive me.”

Author Interview Spring Blessings Tour

springblessingsbanner

I’m interviewing S.C. Houff, author of urban fantasy “Spring Blessings.” Enjoy the interview.

Author Interview

Q: Please tell us about yourself.

I grew up in the Appalachian mounts of Virginia. My folks were both transplants from other parts of the country. I’m the youngest of three which means that I learned very early on to try to stand out. I’ve been telling stories since I was really, really young. I didn’t start writing for fun until I was much older. It sounds clichéd but I’ve done about everything from in-home care for the mentally and physically disabled to telemarketing and things between.

I’m currently working on a Masters in American History. I’ve been married to my best friend who is a boy and probably one of the best writing partners that I’ve ever had for almost six years. If I’m not writing then the two of us are working on his podcast which we’re hoping to launch in earnest very soon. I also care for my brother who has Down Syndrome who might be the best editor I’ve ever had outside of my editor who is pretty darn awesome.

 

Q: Tell us about your book. 

Spring Blessings is the start of a seires. We all it from the Department of Arcane sort of like the Naked Gun movies series. Its about a world where not only is magic real but its regulated by the federal government. Spring Blessings focuses around the story of a man named Asher Stone who is the vessal for a major magical being but never knew. So instead of having the training of many other people like him he spent a few years kicking around in addiction. Now that he’s recovered and living a pretty normal life he gets thrown into a weird little world.

Q: What inspired you to write Spring Blessings?

I got sober. That sounds silly but a lot of Asher’s transformation is sort of mine. I had started this story before I got really bad mentally and then stopped. I started working in earnest once I got my life back in order and started being treated for a lifelong battle of mental illness. While it’s a fantasy novel the theme is there; finding a level of value in yourself after recovering from a life of self-destruction. I’m not saying that I’m an awesome super hero….far from it. I wanted to be valued as a person with gifts after I got clean like Asher.


Q: How much time per week do you spend writing/editing your work?

A lot. I spend I would say at least 35 to 40 hours a week doing nothing but writing and personal editing. I’m also notorious for sending text messages to my husband if for no other reason so I can remember a plot point I need to make at some corner of the day.

 

Q: If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?

That is little bit of a loaded question. But I would love to meet Kurt Vonnegut, Arthur Miller and Charles Beaumont. That list is some of the biggest names that influenced my love of writing and storytelling especially Vonnegut. My grandmother met him when she was still living in Indiana. According to the family story, he was dating her roommate who might have also been her cousin at the time. My grandmother thought he was a weird guy. I’ve always felt a little bit of love for the man because of that story.

Q: What are you working on at the moment?

I am in the second draft of my second novel. It’s a continuation of the Department of the Arcane story. This one is about vampires.

Author Interview Where The Moths Dance

wheremothsdance

I’m interviewing Kristah Price, author of YA fantasy “Where The Moths Dance”. Enjoy the interview.

Q: Please tell us about yourself.

I am a forty-something introvert who loves to make up stories. Over the years I have worked as a deli assistant, a fiber tester, a data entry operator, an apple picker, a home help, a despatch worker, and an administrative assistant, all the while dreaming of the day I could quit work and write full time. Now, with a wonderful and supportive partner, I am lucky enough to be able to stay at home and write.

When I’m not reading, or dreaming up stories, I love to do crafts, especially ones that involve paper or fabric, such as scrapbooking, art journaling, mixed-media art, patchwork and quilting. I also enjoy gardening, baking, and spending time with family.

I live with my partner, Nick, in Napier, New Zealand, a town that was destroyed by an earthquake in 1931 and rebuilt in the art deco style of the times. We love to go for long walks with our very mischievous puppy, Finn, a Jack Russell/Foxy cross.

 

Q: Tell us about your book. 

Where the Moths Dance is a paranormal ghost story with a little bit of magic and a little bit of romance.  Sixteen-year-old Jessie Hale has always believed in the afterlife. She loves to spend time in the graveyard above the cottage where she lives, talking to dead people, so she is not entirely surprised when she is confronted by the spirit of a dead boy. But when she learns that her sanctuary has been invaded by something more sinister, she is determined to protect those she cares most about at all cost. With the help of some unlikely friends, she sets out to banish the evil that threatens to destroy everything she cares about.

Q: What inspired you to write Where The Moths Dance?

My partner, Nick, and I often used to take our dog for walks through an old graveyard near where we live. It is very atmospheric and I always thought it would make a great setting for a story, and so it became the inspiration for Gum Tree Hill Cemetery in Where the Moths Dance. I have always loved ghost stories, tales of hauntings, and anything to do with paranormal phenomena, and wanted to write a story that explored the afterlife and what might exist in other realms.


Q: How much time per week do you spend writing/editing your work?

I spend about 25 hours a week writing/editing, although I spend many more hours going over the story in my mind while I am doing other things. Usually when I sit down to write each day, I have already planned out in my mind what to write. I find that ideas flow when I am doing things like cooking, doing the dishes, walking the dog, and if I am stuck on something, the answer will often come when I am not actually sitting at my desk, writing.

 

Q: If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?

Jodi Picoult, Alice Hoffman, and Catherine Ryan Hyde.

Q: What are you working on at the moment?

At the moment I am in the final stages of the second book in my Wattle Lane series, of which Scrappy Cupcake Angels is the first. The second book, The House in Wattle Lane, is about a young woman who joins a heritage scrapbooking class and is inspired to trace her family history, turning up some dark family secrets along the way. Although it has some of the same characters as Scrappy Cupcake Angels, The House in Wattle Lane is a stand-alone novel.

 

About The Book

Where the Moths Dance book coverTitle: Where The Moths Dance

Author: Kristah Price

Genre: YA Paranormal

Sixteen-year-old Jessie Hale lives in the caretaker’s cottage at the bottom of Gum Tree Hill Cemetery. She feels more comfortable surrounded by the dead than the living, and the graveyard is her sanctuary, a place to escape from her troubled home life and from her mother’s despicable boyfriend, Conrad.

Elliott Rossi has found a way to come back from the dead. He needs to warn Jessie about a demon who can also access the living world and has his new prey firmly in his grasp.

When Jessie learns who has become the demon’s latest victim, she must enlist the help of her friends to battle the evil that has invaded her sanctuary, turning her life upside down and threatening to destroy everything she cares about.

Then there is the small matter of falling in love with a dead boy.

Author Bio

Kristah Price Author PhotoKristah Price has always loved books and dreamed of being a writer since she was a teenager.

Where the Moths Dance is her first novel for young adults. When she is not reading or writing, she enjoys scrapbooking, quilting, mixed-media art, and organic gardening.  She lives with her partner, Nick, and their puppy, Finn, in the Art Deco city of Napier, New Zealand.
