Guest Post & #Giveaway: Where On Earth? An Alaska Adventure By David H. Minton



My background is in Physics, mainly Quantum Mechanics, and I taught Physics at the University level for a number of years.  As a result of my background, when I took the engineering test I qualified for a variety of engineering categories, which I utilized in a long and varied career.
            In my mind, it works more like history or a time-based event sequence would work in any writer’s mind.  Thus, as far as writing fiction is concerned, engineering is a just another tool in my writer’s tool box.  This particular tool, however, allows me to consider if something is physically or technically possible, from an engineering point if view; just as I, or some other writer, might consider if some scene is temporally possible from a sequence of events point of view.   In that sense, I would say I embrace it.  


Where On Earth? An Alaska Adventure
By David H. Minton
Fiery Seas Publishing
May 2017  
Romantic Adventure

Book Description:

Dan Richards, an Iraq war vet, is a surveyor for the mining company, looking to open a new silver mine. Scrambling to establish his helicopter charter business in the wilds of Alaska, while trying to stay connected to his teenage daughter, his world soon turns upside down when he rescues a woman and her dog sledding team after an avalanche.

Samantha Bettencourt, an environmental engineer, is eager to begin her first project with the university. A spokesperson for an environmentalist group intent on preserving the wilderness, she is on the path to saving the wild, but when Dan walks into her life things start to change.

Sparks fly between Dan and Samantha as they find themselves running for their lives—from the good guys as well as the bad guys out to ruin the things they long to protect. Will they be able to escape before it’s too late? Will they get a chance at love or will they lose everything. . . including their lives?

She tried to ignore them. Now she might risk everything to save them.
After a summer spent in a haunted castle—a summer in which she traveled through time to solve a murder mystery—Kat is looking forward to a totally normal senior year at McTernan Academy. Then the ghost of a little girl appears and begs Kat for help, and more unquiet apparitions follow. All of them are terrified by the Dark One, and it soon becomes clear that that this evil force wants Kat dead.
Searching for help, Kat leaves school for the ancestral home she’s only just discovered. Her friend Evan, whose family is joined to her own by an arcane history, accompanies her. With the assistance of her eccentric great aunts and a loyal family ghost, Kat soon learns that she and Evan can only fix the present by traveling into the past.
As Kat and Evan make their way through nineteenth-century Vienna, the Dark One stalks them, and Kat must decide what she’s willing to sacrifice to save a ghost.

Interview & #Giveaway:The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Sting by Deborah Wilde @wildeauthor



Thank you so much for being here with us today Deborah Wilde!! Don't forget to check out an excerpt below, and a giveaway!

Hi! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m a former screenwriter, reader girl, and avid traveler who now writes sexy, funny urban fantasy romance. Think Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.

Do you write an outline before starting a book or just write?

I outline like crazy and then there’s a point at which I’ll deviate from it. I also tend to rewrite my first acts a lot to get the rhythm of the characters’ voices. So even though I’m diving into my fourth book with these characters, I still need to feel my way inside them.

Is there an author or book that influenced you or your writing in any way growing up or as an adult?

The book that had the most profound influence on me was The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I found it when I was nine years old, this book sitting a shelf with “Don’t Panic” written on the cover. When I took it home, it blew my mind. It was funny and surreal and I’d never read anything like it. I tell everyone that it was my Star Wars.

Can you tell us, in your own words not the book description, a little about your book?

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter books center on Nava Katz. She’s kind of floundering in life. Her twin brother has been training his whole life for the day he joins the chosen demon hunters, while her dance dreams went up in smoke. When we first meet Nava, she’s doing the walk of shame up her parents’ front walk, where half-drunk, she crashes her brother’s induction ceremony, only to discover the secret society of hunters have been training the wrong twin all these years.

Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?

Sort of both. When I created Nava, I really wanted to play with what being an “unlikeable” female meant because I believe that even fictional women are held to a different standard than fictional men, especially around sexuality. And I also brought a lot of my issues around the sexism inherent in the Jewish religion (mine) to it. Nava and her story are very personal to me in different ways. But with this idea came the image of her doing her walk of shame and the disaster of the ceremony where she learns she has this huge destiny and doesn’t want it.

Where can we purchase this book?
Barnes and Noble: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/Deborah+Wilde?_requestid=1075876

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Deborah-Wilde/e/B01MSA01NW

Can we expect more novels from you in 2017?

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter came out in April, The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Sting releases June 26, and The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Need is up for pre-order. It will be available on August 18. Then I really need to focus on the final 3 books in the series.

Do you think you may ever go into another genre?

I actually started in another genre. I also write YA romantic comedies under the name Tellulah Darling.

How much of you or people you know do you think make it into the characters in your novel(s)?

Nava is me when I turn off my edit button. She’s snarky, self-defensive, and has carefully cultivated her hot mess status. This is a girl seriously in denial about the emotional baggage she’s carrying around from a couple of major life upsets. We share a love of tap dancing, smexy men, and craving our own happily-ever-after, which I have. Yay! (Buried under layers and layers of sarcasm.)

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Sting
Nava Katz
Book Two
Deborah Wilde

Genre: urban fantasy/romance
Publisher: Te Da Media
Date of Publication: June 26, 2017
ISBN: 978-1-988681-01-6
ASIN: B071Y2GHDM
Number of pages: 420

Book Description:

50% boobs. 50% sarcasm. 100% new breed of hunter.

After a bumpy start as the only female demon hunter in the top secret Brotherhood of David, Nava Katz heads to Prague for her first undercover mission: unmasking a demon movie star. She'd be all kinds of thrilled if it weren't for the fact that her fellow hunter-with-benefits, Rohan Mitra, has reclaimed his rock star status and assigned Nava the role of groupie.

Rejecting her "be a good girl and follow orders" directive, Nava unleashes an alter ego guaranteed to hook their celebrity target and drive Rohan crazy. No downside-until she finds herself up against Rohan's past, the Brotherhood's antiquated thinking, and her own identity issues, turning her personal life into a bomb that could blow up the entire operation.

Sparkly and deadly; it's a plan.

Excerpt:

Rohan’s arm shot out to the wall, blocking me. The two of us faced in different directions. How apt.
“Move,” I said
He didn’t budge.
I stared resolutely ahead.
Finally he dropped his arm.
I pulled my keycard from my coat, walking directly to my room. No passing go. No collecting $200.
“Don’t leave.” He spoke quietly but in the silence of the corridor, I had no trouble hearing him.
My hands balled up. Hadn’t it been enough for one night? That thread between us that had felt so comforting earlier threatened to strangle me now. Anger fueled my turn. I would have welcomed a corresponding anger in him, but the naked longing on his face and the defeat in the slope of his shoulders undid me. That and his sincere, “I love watching you dance.”
The hallway was empty but it suddenly felt hard to breathe.
He held out a hand.
I leaned back. The magnetic push/pull between us demanded a certain distance, a certain resistance, as much as attraction. Wrung out on every level, I couldn’t afford to let Mr. Force-of-Nature Mitra take advantage of my weakened boundaries to redefine our hook-ups into whatever vision he had of them.
The air conditioning kicked in and I wrapped my arms around myself.
“When you see my shower, you’ll thank me.” He scrunched up his face, a lock of hair falling boyishly over his eyes. “Nothing happens. Just sleep.”


I wasn’t sure if that sweetened the offer or not, but I nodded.

About the Author:

                                                       
A global wanderer, hopeless romantic, and total cynic with a broken edit button, Deborah writes urban fantasy to satisfy her love of smexy romances and tales of chicks who kick ass. She is all about the happily-ever-after, with a huge dose of hilarity along the way. “It takes a bad girl to fight evil. Go Wilde.”

Interview & #Giveaway: A Warlock’s Secrets by Tena Stetler @TenaStetler

Read on below for an interview with author sdfsdf, and do not miss the giveaway below!! :)
Thank you so much for being here with us at Full Moon Bites today Tena! 


Hi! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself? 

Tena Stetler: I have an overactive imagination that always got me in trouble as a youngster. I love writing paranormal romance and cozy mysteries. I enjoy hiking with my husband, dog and parrot. Love camping, kayaking and watching wildlife and people. LOL

Do you write an outline before starting a book or just write? 

Tena Stetler: I just write. I complete a five page character worksheet before starting a new book. I tried plotting my characters actions once and they immediately veered off course.

Is there an author or book that influenced you or your writing in any way growing up or as an adult? 

Tena Stetler: The Witness by Nora Roberts.

How do you market your book(s)? 

Tena Stetler: In person, when possible, mostly via social media, twitter, facebook, and pinterest.

I know authors get asked this a lot but do you have any advice that you would give to aspiring writers? 

Tena Stetler: Write what you love. Because if you don’t and just call it in as they say, your readers will know your heart wasn’t in the book.

When did you realize that you would like to write and publish a book? 

Tena Stetler: I have always written stories from the time I learned to read and write.

What was the inspiration for this novel? 

Tena Stetler: It’s a funny story. I wrote my debut novel, A Demon’s Witch, planned two more after that. Then readers and reviewers keep asking when I was going to write Tristian’s story. That character I had not planned a book for, but apparently he was such a charistmatic character that everyone that read A Demon’s Witch asked me if Tristian’s story was next. So I gave everyone what they wanted. I figured out what Tristian wanted, how he was going to get it and wrote the book between the other planned books in the series. I had to do it now, or the time line of the other books would be messed up. As it was the characters grew so much in A Warlock’s Secrets (Tristian’s Story) I had to revise the other books in the series.

Where can we purchase this book?

itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/a-warlocks-secrets/id1231855018?mt=11

Can we expect more novels from you in 2017? 

Tena Stetler:  Yes, A Vampire’s Unlikely Alliance, third in the Demon’s Witch Series should be out by late 2017

Are you working on anything at the moment? 

Tena Stetler: Yes, the beginning of a new series about an ex-CIA operative and a former special forces officer both of which return to their sleepy little town to find the unexpected. It’s a lot of fun. Also working on the sequel to Charm Me a novella I wrote for Valentine’s Day in 2016. It was part of the Candy Hearts Series from The Wild Rose Press, my publisher. The character’s weren’t finished then a cast of new ones joined in, been really interesting.

How much of you or people you know do you think make it into the characters in your novel(s)?

 Tena Stetler: Oh I see pieces of me in my characters and things I hear and see when people watching. A directionally challenged friend of mine claimed the mountains moved when she first moved to Colorado. She had a habit of getting lost and that was her excuse. I found that statement so amusing that it finally made it into one of my books. She called me a brat after she read it. <grin> 

Do you think you will have a follow up book to this novel or is it just a stand-alone novel? 

Tena Stetler: A Warlock’s Secrets is the second in the Demon’s Witch Series, there are two more after it.

Why this genre(s)?
Tena Stetler: Why write romance, I like the happily ever after aspect. I want to whisk a person away from the everyday to a magic world. For me crafting a romance is all about RESPECT, TRUST and LOVE. Only most of my characters are of the paranormal persuasion. I want to create a memorable love story with spice and adventure. Characters that will grab hold of your heart and hang on long after you’ve read the last word and closed the book with a satisfied sigh.

Random Quickies!


Favorite kind of chocolate? 

 Tena Stetler: All kinds, never met a piece of chocolate I didn’t like.

Cats or dogs? 

Tena Stetler: Dogs

Do you read more than you write? 

Tena Stetler: I write more than I read, unfortunately. I try to read a lot too, but deadlines dictate my time. Although with summer coming up, I read a lot around the campfire on our camping trips.

Favorite movie? 

Tena Stetler: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Favorite book or author? Yeah we know it can be hard to choose! ;) 

Tena Stetler: Molly Harper

Hardback/Paperback or eReader? 

Tena Stetler: EReader

Why do you like eReaders more?

Amazon      Kobo      BN       iTunes
Excerpt:
He offered his hand to Hannah as she stood, wrapped an arm around her waist and guided her out of the diner. "How about a ride up the coast?"
"Sure as soon as you explain how you held those teens down without touching them." She smiled up at him knowingly.  "And don't give me that crap about telling me or killing me."
A slight grin curved the corners of his mouth. "How about on an as needed basis and you don't need to know?"
A soft laugh bubbled up from her throat. "If I had to guess, I'd say you're a warlock with well-honed powers." She tilted her head up towards his. "Would I be right?"
HIs grin faded replaced with a stormy expression. "Where would you get that absurd idea?  They merely tripped and had trouble getting up. I suggested they stay put until the police showed up.  Simple as that."
"Right.  Well on that note, I'll see myself home." She turned to her car and opened the door.
For a moment, he considered letting her go. Women are more trouble than they’re worth anyway. That's when the meddling voice of Birch wafted through Tristian's mind.  She's moved on, so should you.  Damn faeries anyway. I'm sure he's using some kind of magic to do this to me.
"Okay, you win. But only if you tell me why you are disguising your magic signature." He leaned against the car a smirk on his face.

EXCERPT

Carmen’s attitude triggered something dark in Rex. Something that was hungry and demanding to be fed. “Crawl to me,” he commanded.
Carmen’s head dropped back as if she’d been physically slapped.
The urge to push her some more roared in on him, taking charge. He strode to the chair where his clothes lay abandoned from the night before.
Swiping up his jeans, he fished into the pocket. He tossed the key chain out across the floor, holding on to the end of the long chain. “Get down on your hands and knees and crawl over here for it.”
When the key landed on the Persian rug, she stared down at it.
Rex jerked on the chain.
The key flipped over on the floor between them, like bait. Like a lure.
“Show me what you want, what you came here for,” he said.
Carmen shook her head.
“I want to know exactly what you wanted when you stepped through the door. The truth.”
She stared up at him. “I can’t do this.”
“You can, because you want the Manor, and you agreed to do whatever I said to get it.” Would she use the safeword? Would this push her humiliation trigger just that bit too far? He didn’t care, as long as it got the truth out of her. He had to know. “Why are you here? What did you want? Just the property?”
“Yes.” She dropped onto her hands and knees. Her voice was weak, forced. “It’s a fair exchange, that’s what you said.”
The light outlined her body, drawing his eye to her curves.
She moved suddenly, jerking forward and crawling toward the key, but she was in turmoil. He could sense it. He could see it.
The sight of her that way made him painfully hard and yet his sense of frustration only grew. He wanted to understand this woman more than anything in the world.
When she got to it, her hand wrapped around the key, but she stayed there, shifting uneasily. The light from the window fell across her naked form, delineating the arch of her waist and the curve of her hip. Her soft skin glowed in the morning light. In contrast, her face was shadowed by her hair as it fell forward, and she looked up at him like a wild creature, her eyes blazing.
“Tell me why,” he demanded, and he held tight to his end of the key chain.
Her body rippled, her back arching. Her head swung to one side. She whimpered. Taking a deep breath she moved again, gathering the chain up in her hand as she went.
“Just the house?” he asked. “That’s all you wanted? You were that mercenary?”
She froze, then sat back on her heels. Her breathing was labored. She was battling inner demons.
He pressed her further. “Why is this so hard for you to talk about?”
Because I’m scared.” She stared up at him, and her eyes looked wild.
Rex swallowed. “Why are you scared?”
Her eyes flashed shut. “
Because I wanted you.” Her voice was scarcely above a whisper “I didn’t realize how much, at first, but I came here because I’ve always wanted you.”
Rex's chest felt tight and restricted.
He let go of the key chain, throwing it down on the floor, and clicked his fingers. “Then come to my side.”
She moved fast, kneeling at his feet, her arms wrapping around his thighs. The key and its chain lay abandoned on the floor. Rex stared down at it, assuring himself of what had occurred.
She clung to him, and he felt damp tears against his skin. “Please don’t tease me about it.”
Rex let his head drop back, relief barreling through him.
Grateful, and empowered, he stroked her head possessively, admitting to himself that a month would never be enough.
Never enough.
