Talk About It Tuesday- Yvonne Mason

Yvonne Mason has been a regular to terriluvsbooks. It’s exciting to share something about her upcoming book. As with her other books, this sounds exciting and worth reading. Looking forward to when it is released.

I am working on a trilogy which is a historical fiction involving two women one in Scotland and the other in England in 1888. Lily Rose is the first book, the Second is Adella Victoria- The Meeting and the third is A Night of Revenge. There is a cast of characters that I don’t even know where they came from. All I know is that this book has haunted me for a couple of years. Lily Rose is a witch, Adella Victoria is her cousin and they have no idea the other exists. Each characters name in the books carries a specific meaning as I use the old Celtic names which were important in their meaning. I have written historical fiction before but never like this. The strange thing is that Lily Rose resembles a childhood friend of mine’s granddaughter and I didn’t even know it until he posted her photo. The short version of the story is Lily Rose’s life is in danger and there are those who have sworn to protect her even at the cost of their own lives. Each one has a gift and those gifts will come into play in due time. There is a war on the horizon. The clan is gathering.

Licensed bounty hunter for the state of Georgia.
Education:
After a 34 year absence, returned to college in 2004. Graduated with honors in Criminal Justice with an Associate’s degree from Lanier Technical College in 2006.
Awards:
Nominated for the prestigious GOAL award in 2005 which encompasses all of the technical colleges. This award is based not only on excellence in academics but also leadership, positive attitude and the willingness to excel in one’s major.
Affiliations:
Beta Sigma Phi Sorority

The Dream:
Since learning to write at the age of five, Yvonne has wanted to be an author. She wrote her first novel Stan’s Story beginning in 1974 and completed it in 2006. Publication seemed impossible as rejections grew to 10 years. Determined, she continued adding to the story until her dream came true in 2006.
The Inspiration:
Yvonne’s brother Stan has been her inspiration and hero in every facet of her life. He was stricken with Encephalitis at the tender age of nine months. He has defied every roadblock placed in his way and has been the driving force in every one of her accomplishments. He is the one who taught her never to give up
Yvonne’s Philosophy in Life – “Pay it Forward”:
“In this life we all have been helped by others to attain our dreams and goals. We cannot pay it back but what we can do is ‘pay it forward’. It is a simple concept. By helping three people, those three people help three more people and soon that becomes nine. Those nine people each help three more people and the giving continues. As you see, it is the power of three. Our giving comes back to us ten-fold. So one could say it is three to the power of ten. We all started out with nothing. By using this philosophy we can help one another and share the goodness of life’s wealth.”

Talk About It Tuesday- Sherry Rentschler

This is an unedited snippet from Sherry Rentschler ‘s upcoming vampire book; title to be determined.

One such man waited in an alley bar, a place long forgotten since the uprising. The stink of urine and used lives fell away once inside where desperation surrendered to resignation.

“Can you get me what I require or not?” Her impatience shown in the color of her eyes, turning them from dark green to a pale, luminous emerald.

“I will. I mean I can. But there is a price. Well, not exactly a price, but something I need. More of a favor really…” he mumbled then swallowed. Hard.

“What is it you want? More money?” She leaned in, laying a pale hand over his across the table and then tapped his fingers with a long pale index finger. “You know, asking a killer for anything other than a swift death is dangerous.” Dra taunted.

The man twitched and yanked his hand away as if burned. His gaze faltered and he wondered if she ever blinked. Then he offered his most disarming smile and cleared his throat, finding new depths of bravado.

“I know. It’s what I want. What I require.”

“To die? Well, honey, that was easy. Agreed!” She offered a ready glint of fangs along with her hand to seal the deal. Honor among thieves and all that.

But he wasn’t done. That wasn’t the complete deal. Death was just a tool.

“No, no not just to die. I want to be a vampire. That’s the deal.”

This book shows the reader more about Dra, the vampire seductress we met in Rentschler’s book, Midnight Assassin- A Tale of Lust and Revenge. Just look at this teaser and you will know that she is not a vamp you’d want to meet in an alley.

Recently, she let readers in on even more of a sneak peak when she create a contest to name the bar in her book.

Now I will admit, I’m a little biased. I’ve been helping (I mean bugging) Sherry to get this book finished. I mean come on, this is one bad ass hottie who knows how to get her way. In fact it’s not a matter of getting her way. Her way is the ONLY way.

Talk About It Tuesday- Terry Maggert

 

Terry Maggert has three series, Halfway Witchy, Heartborn, The Fearless. 

Left-handed. Father of an apparent nudist. Husband to a half-Norwegian. Herder of cats and dogs. Lover of pie. I write books. I’ve had an unhealthy fascination with dragons since the age of– well, for a while. Native Floridian. Current Tennessean. Location subject to change based on insurrection, upheaval, or availability of coffee. Nine books and counting, with no end in sight. You’ve been warned.

 

He shared two pieces from his current work in progress, Moonborn:

 

Livvy Foster has a new heart, home, and a place in the powerful halls of House Windhook. The fall of Sliver was only the beginning of a civil war that sees angels from across the sky challenge each other to lead a world in which the past and the future are connected by a storm crafted from time, ambition, and power.

When House Selinus attempts to bend the light of days in order to become the supreme power in an apocalyptic future, they confront a goddess who is older than time itself– and she’ll stop at nothing to get the one soul who escaped her deadly grasp: Livvy.

With deceit, war and love swirling in the clouds above a shattered world that was once Livvy’s home, she’ll be asked to do something a girl with a broken heart never thought possible.
Fight for Windhook. Fight for her world.
Take wing with Livvy, one heartbeat at a time.

Excerpt:

Chapter Four: Answers

Breakfast consisted of berries so sour that Livvy almost choked.

“They’re an acquired taste,” Saiinov said through a smile. He was in high spirits since all of his children would be filtering in and out as the day wore on. Habira, Prista, and the twins, Banu and Vesta were busy doing the quiet work that House Windhook needed to position itself as a regional power. There was a vacuum opening across the greater skies, and Windhook would be ready to fill it. When she pressed him for details, Livvy was met by a shrug.

“Am I a member of this family?” Her question brought Saiinov up short. Seated around the table, Vasa, Cressa, and Garrick watched the interplay between Livvy and the man who would now assume a role not unlike that of her father. After a long moment, he simply nodded. “Then tell me what’s going on.” There was no negotiation, or pleading. She stated her needs, and sat back, hands folded in her lap like a judge waiting to hear the story of an accused criminal.

“She needs to know, even if the context isn’t clear.” Vasa sipped something from a tall glass and inclined her head toward Saiinov. The tiny signal was only possible after years of marriage; like many couples, they had visual code that spoke more clearly than any words ever could.

He wiped his mouth with care, stalling for time. When he spoke, it was with the voice of a teacher. “Contrary to my hopes, Sliver didn’t fall through the clouds. It still exists, and it will remain a center of power, but reduced. We aim to gather allies and tools to make certain there is no rebirth of the Crescent Council. Our children are eminently able, and we all know our roles. Even you have a part to play, and I hope you’re ready. I know we’re asking a great deal of you so soon after your surgery.” He looked askance at Vasa, who shrank for a moment, awash with the remembrance of Keiron.

Livvy’s fingers traced her scar, but not from shame. She felt too good to let regret rob her of the vitality that hummed in her body. “You still haven’t answered my question.”

Saiinov chuckled, shaking his head at her tenacity. “You’re right.” His sigh was long and shallow. “You’re more than a part of this family, Livvy. We gave something precious so that you might live, and now we’re going to ask you to give it all back. And more.” His eyes were hard.

“I figured this wasn’t a sightseeing trip.” She sounded resigned, but in control. The girl who left earth was gone, but vestiges of her practicality lingered on.

“That’s actually true. At least for the next three days or so. You’re going to learn a great deal in a short span of time, and Garrick is going to help you.” Saiinov’s tone matched his expression, and Livvy saw the light of command in his eyes.

“She’ll do more than that.” Vasa looked outward, where a shadow indicated someone wheeling in to land on the aerie. “But that must wait. Livvy, I’ll speak to you tonight. For now, I’ve left something for you in your room. You’re going to need proper equipment for tomorrow.”

“What am I learning?” Livvy burned with curiosity. Everything about her newfound life was a revelation that wavered between joy and fear.

Vasa’s smile was bland. “We’re going to teach you how to be an angel.”

 

Thanks, Terry!
