Be careful what you let in…

Siler House has stood silent beneath Savannah’s moss-draped oaks for decades. Notoriously haunted, it has remained empty until college-bound Jess Perry and three of her peers gather to take part in a month-long study on the paranormal. Jess, who talks to ghosts, quickly bonds with her fellow test subjects. One is a girl possessed. Another just wants to forget. The third is a guy who really knows how to turn up the August heat, not to mention Jess’s heart rate…when he’s not resurrecting the dead. The study soon turns into something far more sinister when they discover that Siler House and the dark forces within are determined to keep them forever. In order to escape, Jess and the others will have to open themselves up to the true horror of Siler House and channel the very evil that has welcomed them all. 







Author Bio







Michelle has always loved storytelling. When she was a child, her favorite stories were of monsters and things that lurked in the dark. Telling stories often frightened her classmates and got her into a lot of trouble with her teachers. They had no sense of humor.

As an adult, Michelle traded her love of writing for the corporate life where she was an IT professional. Today, she's doing what she loves best - writing and storytelling.

Michelle grew up in Chicago, but currently lives in NE Georgia with her husband and their two dogs. She loves scary books, funny movies, sports cars, chocolate, dogs, and changes of season.

Author Interview


How did you come up with the idea for your book?
During a trip to Savannah, I visited the Sorrel-Weed house, which is reported to be Savannah’s most haunted house.


What is different about this book compared to others you’ve written?
For starters, The Haunting Season is New Adult. Secondly, the main characters are not supernatural beings.


Most unique or unusual research you’ve ever done for The Haunting Season?
Besides visiting the Sorrel-Weed house? Asking a former mortician about embalming methods in the early to mid 1900’s and how embalming and burial procedures have changed and why. It’s both fascinating and a bit gruesome.


What is the hardest part about writing?
Keeping my butt in the chair for as many hours as I need to per day. Resisting the urge to jump on the internet when I’m having difficulty with a scene.


If you could meet any author who is no longer living, who would it be?
Tough call. Edgar Allan Poe, probably. But I’d also like to meet Rod Serling and Alfred Hitchcock.


Can you tell us a little about your next project?
It’s a adult dark fantasy novel with action, castles, and gargoyles.  It’ll be out early this summer.

If you could do one thing over again in regards to writing, what would it be?
Write faster.


Vanilla or chocolate?
Chocolate.


Food you like the most? The least?
I tend to like Italian food the most. I can’t stand brussel sprouts or peas.


Favorite television show?
Supernatural

What weapon would you choose in the zombie apocalypse?
Harry Potter’s wand or maybe Dean Winchester. He’d be a formidable weapon against zombies, right?


What scares you?

Humanity. The way people treat others, animals, or the environment.

My Review

When I first started this book, I wasn’t really sure what to expect as I had not heard anything about it yet. So, I didn’t know whether we were talking about a romance or a western novel. But, as I began to turn the pages, I knew. And I was overjoyed.Everyone loves a good romance novel. This book fits that description perfectly. The story starts out a little slow, but it isn’t long before the story picks up and you are blasted into a world of fairy-tale romance. Not that the road is easy for either one of them.
I love the characters in this book. They are so realistic and you can relate to them so well. Well..except for maybe Ivy!! LOL I wish I could be like her but I don’t see making an impression like she does as up my alley. But otherwise, what a fantastic set of people to intermingle with each other.
I have to say I fell IN LOVE with Taron. I know! I know! What a jerk..right? But I can’t help it! I know I should be in love with Talon, but I can’t relate with someone with so much past drama and even though he comes off on the surface as this sex obsessed jerk, underneath he loves completely the things he cares for. Unfortunately, for him it’s sex and his brother. But still. I must just love the bad boys. Hee HeeAll in all, I really loved this story. It was a very simple idea and I like that in a book. When an author begins to complicate things the book can become overwhelming, but not in this situation. It was a quick read but a necessary one.

Will David and Annette survive the trials of parenting seven children? Can they keep their relationship together during their daughter's struggles? Will all their children decide to follow their parents' warnings and advice? Join the Anderson's as they battle these challenging situations.


Excerpt

“Oh, Georgia! Lighten up!” Jersey shook her finger at Georgia. Georgia could tell her sister had been drinking not only by her behavior, but Jersey smelled of the beer or liquor. The two girls plus their fellow triplet, Virginia, were barely seventeen, and their step-sister Mallory was still sixteen. The four were about to be seniors in high school and their sibling was already an alcoholic.
Jersey and this male friend of hers both laughed then shushed each other like preschoolers about to get caught in an mischievous act. Georgia didn’t even know his name and didn’t remember ever seeing him before. Georgia rolled her eyes, knowing this was not going to get any better.

“How did he get in here?” Georgia asked. She put her hands on her hips, an action she had observed her mother doing over the past several years as all her older siblings had become teenagers. Georgia knew for a fact this boy did not enter through the front door of their house.

“How else?” Jersey slurred. “The window.”
 
 â€œThe window? We’re on the second floor!” Georgia put her head in her hands, exasperated. She’s been covering for her sister for more than two years now, but she wasn’t sure she could any longer. Jersey seemed to be getting herself deeper and deeper in trouble.

Blurb:

In a perfect world, David and Annette would never have met. Their spouses would still be alive and well, supporting their families in their endeavors. Their children, seven between the two, would not be spiraling into deep depression with each passing moment.


But their world is not perfect and both must struggle with their spouse's deaths, raise their children and deal with their new-found relationship with each other. Can David and Annette learn to love each other despite their differences? Can they look into the future instead of the past? Will their own children force them to part?

Interview:

How did you start your writing career?

Quite honestly, I've been writing since I was young. I entered several contests growing up, won many awards, a few were published. I wrote for the yearbook and newspaper in high school and college, but decided to get a business degree in accounting, while minoring in journalism and design. As a graduate student, for fun, I took a creative writing class. Once I did that, there was no turning back!

Tell us about a favorite character from a book.

If I chose a favorite character from any book out there, I would have to say there's a tie. My favorite book of all time is Charlotte's Web and I love Fern. There's such an innocence about her and watching her grow up learning how life really works.

The second would be Travis Thompson, the male main character in Debbie Macomber's “Morning Comes Softly.” Travis is given his brother's three children to raise after their death and he has to find a wife and learn to live with four strangers. I love the way he grows as a person, emotionally, spiritually and as a husband and father.


Where do you dream of traveling to and why?

Europe. I lived in Germany for two years, traveled some while there, but if I could go back, I'd go to every country over there. The landscaping, the way of life, the views, the weather and more.


Does travel play in the writing of your books?

Technically, I should head to Nebraska and actually see what it looks like since my books are set there! I also have characters living in Seattle, but I feel I know what the state of Washington looks like through Debbie Macomber's books. I have characters living in Texas, but that's my home state and I know all about that!


Who is your favorite author?

Debbie Macomber is my absolute favorite author! Her work has inspired me and helped me grow as a writer.

When in the day/night do you write? How long per day?

When I used to work full-time, I would write from about 10pm until one or two in the morning. Now that I am a full-time author, I typically write from 10am to 2pm while the kids are in school.

What is the hardest part of writing your books?

Figuring out where to go next.

What does your significant other and family think of your writing career?

At first, my husband thought it was a joke. Then all my husband complained about was how much time it took to write something I probably was never going to publish. Now that I've published two books, he's letting me do this as a full-time career.

Does your significant other read your stuff?

Nope! He doesn't read any books at all.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned while writing your books?

I learned that writing is harder than it looks! Putting a coherent story together, keeping characters straight and making it sound legitimate. It's hard!

Who are your books published with?

CreateSpace

Do you hear from your readers? What kinds of questions do they ask?

I have several friends who have read my books and they love them. I had one person ask me if I'm from Nebraska and I had to admit I've never been there before!

What do you think makes a good story?

Plot line, more description than conversation and good setting

Tell us about your family.

I've been married for seventeen years to my high school sweetheart. We have four children, three daughters and a son.

Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?

Classical. I open iTunes where I have a playlist of over 200 classical pieces of music, pick a song to start on and I begin writing.

What was the scariest moment of your life?

I sent my husband off to war in 2004. When he called and said this might be the last time I ever spoke to him, it brought this entire war he was fighting in to life.

What books have most influenced your life?

I read J.D. Salinger, George Orwell, Herman Melville, Ayn Rand and the like growing up. Those are definitely the styles I now know I could never write. That's why I write what I do!

How do you develop your plots and your characters? Do you use any set formula?

No formula, I simply write.

If you were to write a series of novels, what would it be about?

This is a funny question as I am writing a series of novels! This series is all about two families merging together and learning to live as one. The other books branch off and you see other families connect, but you always come back to the main family. I would love one day to write another series about time travel, but that's in the future.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A math teacher. I still do!

What are your favorite TV shows?

Oh geez! I have a lot! Doctor Who, Big Bang Theory, M*A*S*H, Vegas, Elementary, Amazing Race, Top Gear, anything with Gordon Ramsey, Star Trek, The Cosby Show, Wings, and lots more!

What songs are most played on your Ipod?

The song most played on my iPod is “Geronimo” by Audiogroove. The next three are albums: A Prairie Home Companion, Mamma Mia and Love Actually.

What is your favorite meal?

I have two depending on my mood: Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes and Ranch Style Beans or SEAFOOD of any kind!

What group did you hang out with in high school?

The band, I was an official band nerd.

Do you play any sports?

Softball and basketball

What do you do to unwind and relax?

I like swimming to relax. Sitting at the beach is relaxing to me.

Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers? If so, what are they?

Just put your fingers to the keyboard and go! Don't give up on your dream!

At what point in your life did you realize you wanted to be a writer?

In elementary school, but to everyone it was considered a fad. You don't earn money writing books, I was told!

What is it that you like to do when you’re not reading/writing?

Knitting, crocheting, sewing, scrapbooking, playing with my kids, spending time with my hubby

Who should play you in a film of your life?

Drew Barrymore – that way I know my husband would come and watch it!

Morning Person? Or Night Person? How do you know?

Nightowl, have been since a child.

Tell us about your favorite restaurant.

This is hard! But probably Pappadeux's because it's seafood!!!

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

BOTH!! I love them both! Add in the BeeGees and I'm all set!

New York or LA? Why?

I have to say New York because we are Yankees fans.

Describe what it’s like to be an author in three words.

Really, really hard

What one word best describes you?

Patient. That's what every says of me, that I have the patience of Job.

Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?

ENGLAND!

Do your friends think you are an introvert or an extravert? Why?

Introvert with a large group of people. Extravert when there's only two people involved.

Where are your fans most likely to find you hanging out?

The softball fields or the beach.

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?

I am an honest, hardworking writer, desperate to share a story. My thoughts, my dreams, my feelings are poured into my work, mind, body and soul.

Have any of your characters been modeled after yourself?

Not really. Some are a combination of what I am and what I wish I was or could have been, but so far, none of them are entirely modeled after myself.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

That I do write a series of books under another pen name which I have never openly told to another soul. It's the exact opposite of what I write under my own name.

You just won a huge lottery what is the first thing you'll buy?

The latest model of the Ford Mustang. I've wanted one since I was a senior in high school. Orange in color, black interior.

Do you have a Website or Blog?

http://www.pamelaforeman.com

What do you find most rewarding about writing?

That people read my work and like it. A few sales would be nice as well!


My Review:

As I was reading this book, I couldn't help but want a happy ending for these characters. I do like the message the book sends that you shouldn't always rush things and hold yourself until you are sure about this person and want to spend the rest of your life with them. 
There was loss in this book on both ends and sometimes that is hard to get past but Pamela did a really good job of making it real for the reader. I struggled when the characters did and I was happy/sad when the characters were. Sometimes is is a really hard subject to write about, in terms of loss, and can be a delicate subject for anyone but this was flawless.
The book was filled with lots of surprises but I don't want to give away too much. There is a very unique story line going on with David and I hope it continues and grows. There are many ways that it can go and I'm excited for the sequel.
This was a very charming story told from the perspective of an adult male and a female child. It is very unique in the sense that normally romance is brought from the male/female perspective and not always the child. I enjoyed reading about the struggles with the children and their feelings on the matter.
If you haven't had a chance to read it, please find time. This is a story of love and overcoming loss. That in any situation there is always the gold at the end of the rainbow.

I waited for 10 ½ hours just to be front row to see them in concert and of course it rocked. I also love Paramore, John Mayer, Mute-math, Adele, Band of Horses...the list could go on forever and ever. I love dancing, rocking out in the car to music, spending time with my children and husband, laughing with my bestie, and cooking. I also love watching Tobuscus on you-tube.

T. Hammond lives in Spokane, WA with her goofy, neurotic, long-coat German shepherd, Dexter; he's noble and brave, until someone turns on the microwave, then she has 100lbs of quivering dog trying to hide behind her chair or bury his head under a pillow (Little known fact: a 100lb German Shepherd CAN fit under a coffee table). Writing is not a calling so much as it is a compulsion. No one is more surprised than she is when characters take over the plot and dialog, and (re)direct stories in directions she had not (consciously) intended. She is fully convinced that the writer is the tool a story uses to tell its tale. Some tools, of course, are more appropriate for the job than others. Here's hoping, you feel she did her stories proud. T. has a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Management from Whitworth University, and a Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University and before becoming a writer she was a bookkeeper, technical/manual writer, Call Center Manager and the owner of a freshwater aquarium store, Guppy Tales.
Amazon Goodreads ~~~~~~~~~~~ Author Deliza Rafferty Deliza Rafferty is a new erotic romance writer (spicier than traditional romance without hardcore BDSM - always hot, sometimes humorous!) located in Hollywood. "Deliza" means "gives pleasure" and "Rafferty" means "rich and prosperous." With a name like that, what else could she do? Well...legally, anyway? Rafferty has written all sorts of stories, poems and songs for personal enjoyment since she was a little girl, but has been writing "dirty dramas" secretly since her first real kiss in middle school. She's spent most of her "real" career in the music business and draws from her unique first hand experience to bring to life her current series, The Savannah Rossi Chronicles. She is venturing into sharing her musings publicly for the very first time and is excited that modern day technology allows her to do it at her leisure and maintain control of her work. Amazon Goodreads ~~~~~~~~~~~ Author Felicia Tatum Felicia Tatum was born and raised in Tennessee. She always loved reading, and at the age of twelve began writing.

Amazon Goodreads ~~~~~~~~~~~    Author L. J. Baker L J lives on the Jersey Shore with her husband, four kids, two cats, and an inherited dog from hell (a.k.a. the sewer gremlin). Though writing has always been her first passion, she got a degree in psychological counseling and worked in the mental health field for awhile, which she finds very helpful in dealing with her crazy family. She is a lover of all different types of music and books, switching between genres so wildly it sometimes makes people wonder if she has multiple personalities. She is most likely to be found writing romance stories of all kinds (contemporary, erotic, new adult, young adult, fantasy, etc.) and has just finished writing her first book, Save Me. When she's not writing, she prefers to spend her time reading, taking photos, or spending time with her family. Amazon Goodreads ~~~~~~~~~~~ Reader's Candy Blog

Blurb:

They agreed on three months...but their love knew no boundaries.

Jack McLachlan is a winemaking magnate and easily one of Australia’s most eligible bachelors. His success and wealth make him no stranger to the complications of romantic relationships and that’s why he goes to extreme measures to avoid the hassle. He prefers simplicity in the form of a beautiful female companion with no strings attached. He arranges relationships like business deals and they’re always the same. No long term relationships. No real names.

It’s his game and his rules. He’s content to play as usual, but when Laurelyn Prescott enters his life, his strategy must change because this player is like none he's ever encountered. His world is turned on its head after he begins a three month affair with the beautiful American musician. Nothing goes according to plan and as he breaks more and more of his own rules for her, she’s exceptionally close to becoming something he never thought possible. His ultimate game changer.

Not recommended for younger readers due to sexual content and language.

About the Author:

I am a wife, mother of two daughters and a labor and delivery nurse. I have recently added Paranormal Romance Writer to my list of things to keep be busy, but I am ecstatic to release my debut novel, Blood of Anteros, the first book in The Vampire Agápe Series. 

Like others that enjoy a great story of paranormal romance, I am easily bored by the tale of an obtainable, ordinary romance and was inspired to create The Vampire Agápe Series. When I am not tied up with my family or delivering babies, I am working feverishly on the second book in The Vampire Agápe Series.

Blurb:


Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word.

Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it--any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.

Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It's the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn't possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does.

The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.


Enter below. One person will be drawn at random. The contest will run through June 14, 2013

Happy Liking and thanks to everyone who has brought me this far!!!

Paige Stone lived anything but a normal childhood. Having been raised around an abused women's shelter operated by her parents, Paige was a constant witness to the tragedy and heartache suffered by women at the hands of the men they trusted. Out of refusal to ever allow that to happen to her,... Paige built walls around her heart at a young age. Those walls were only fortified when tragedy struck on her sixth birthday and took from her the only friend and love she knew. Now at 22 years old, and working as a private investigator, Paige is driven by a deep need for strength, independence and a stubborn refusal to accept help from another person. Surrounding herself with her three best friends, Paige never assumed that the autonomy she had worked so hard to build could be challenged.


That was, until Paige met Daemon Pierce.


Mysterious, strong-willed, and breathtakingly beautiful, Daemon seemed to instantly know Paige better than she knew herself. Paige is disgusted by Daemon's reputation as a womanizer, but becomes intrigued when she is unable to discover his background. Paige's curiosity about Daemon proves to be her downfall as she is swept up in his charming and arrogant pursuit to possess her in every possible way.


For the first time in her life, Paige will struggle for control while Daemon slowly dismantles the walls she has built around herself. Only time will tell who will be victorious in their battle of wills as Daemon teaches Paige the weaknesses within herself that she never knew existed. Paige stays one step ahead in her struggle against Daemon's controlling ways, but when tragedy strikes her life a second time, she has to choose; will she put her life in danger, or will she finally accept a helping hand?
