Eyes of Magic (Rise of the Unseelie #3)

Eyes of Magic (Rise of the Unseelie #3)
By S.A. Archer and S. Ravynheart
ASIN:  B007WO202I
Published April 22nd 2012 by Ravynheart Publishing
Available Format: ebook

My Rating: ★★★★★

The young man they found is awake, and there is something not-quite-right about him.  Perhaps he’s defective—a result of too much torture in the Goblins’ nest.  Will Malcolm be able to discover any magic within, other than the Touch, which has thus far only been a perversion of what it truly should be, or will he never truly find a place to fit in?

I absolutely LOVE Malcolm’s story!  He has a dark vulnerability to him—almost as if he is a "bad" guy, but you can’t quite label him either way.  He’s a wild card, and we’ve yet to discover where exactly he’ll fit in within this new world. 

There is a great balance with the characters in this story.  Of course, everything is grounded (no pun intended :-)) with Donovan. Kieran brings the youthful, energetic aspect.  Dawn is pessimistic and impulsive, but she offers an important perspective on the situation. And Tiernan has a bit of swagger along with his vast resourcefulness. 

As always, this quick read is packed with tons of diversity and entertainment.  I don’t think these guys can write anything I don’t love!  And, by the way, BEST cover so far! :-)

You can grab a copy of Eyes of Magic FREE on Amazon from April 26-28 and again from May 8-9!!!  You do NOT want to miss out on this!

Guest Post: Take Me as I Am by C.S. Marks

Take Me as I Am
by C.S. Marks

As a reader, I have certain expectations.
  • To be entertained, stimulated, perhaps even enthralled while losing myself in a new world full of intriguing characters.
  • To have my emotional guts ripped out, thrown back in, and stitched up again.
  • To experience nasty-character loathing and look forward to the comeuppance.
  • To identify with a comfortably flawed, unpredictable heroine.
  • To be amused, excited, terrified, and horrified as the plot unfolds.
  • To be left pondering and mulling over the story long after I have put it away.
  • To be left wanting more.

As a writer, I try to live up to my own expectations as a reader. I expect most (if not all) writers do that--we write what we like to read. This takes time, energy, and inspiration. If any of you are writers, you know what I mean. We invest a great deal of ourselves in our work. We strive to improve our skills as storytellers, and if we’re lucky, the outcome is worth reading.
A writer friend of mine, who lives in Los Angeles, recently contacted me with some suggestions for my continued success as a fantasy writer, and I thought I’d share them, because I’m thinking they might not have occurred to some of you. They certainly had not occurred to me.

My friend has spent quite a lot of time among professionals in various aspects of the entertainment industry, which, as you know, has a bit of a presence in Los Angeles. She is a well-intentioned and talented individual who has always held my best interests at heart, despite my lowly midwestern origins and naivete concerning the wide world of books and films. In her mind, real success as a writer requires a transition to film; therefore, the rules of success in the film world apply to authors.

Here is a more-or-less direct quote:
“Before your book launches in New York, you will hire a personal trainer and you will obtain professional consultation regarding your wardrobe. You should probably wear black.” She went on to imply that, should I not follow this advice, I stood little chance of acquiring a film adaptation, and therefore I could not succeed as an author.

I can imagine the meetings in the board rooms of publishers, film-makers, and so on. Let’s listen in on one shall we?

Publishing exec. #1: “Have you all had the chance to look over this latest offering from Ima Nagent? Our top editor has a lot of faith in it.

#2: “The one by Arthor Worthy? Yes, I did... I think it’s got real potential. I let my son read it, and he’s hooked.”

#3: “My wife read it and she cried at the ending. I can see this going big--maybe even Twilight big--it would make a spectacular set of films.”

(general muttering indicating positive reaction)

#4: “WAIT a minute... have you seen the author’s photo? I found it on his website.”

#1: “Why, is there a problem?” (looks over 4’s shoulder at author photo on author’s website) “Gasp!”

#2: What is it? He’s not... dumpy, is he?”

#1: “See for yourselves.” (flips photo onto wall screen. Collective shudder from the assembly).

#2: “Is it a deal-breaker, do you think? I son really loved the book--more than any he’s read in ages. Perhaps we might make compliance with our ‘12% body fat maximum’ a condition of the contract?”

#3: “Perhaps we could offer a lifetime contract with a personal trainer in lieu of an advance?”

#4: “I don’t know that we can afford the risk. Besides, he’s also...bald. (shakes head) The middle-aged ones so often are...”

#3: I’m afraid we’ve got more than one issue here.

And so, Arthor Worthy’s work is consigned to the pile of “we might consider publishing this, but only if we’re desperate” works by writers who are less-than-photogenic. Alas.

In times past, people were described as having “a good face for radio,” which was a polite way of saying they were too homely for television. I don’t mind if the writers of my favorite books have “radio faces.” I am happy to see that they are real people.

I’m not arguing my friend’s point... much. Personally, I’d prefer my readers’ impression of me to be formed via my work, not my author photo. If they read my books, they’ll have a pretty fair idea of my world view and personal fact, they’ll know more about me from that than they’ll ever learn via a bio. or photo. If eccentricity and imperfection are part of me, then that part comes with the whole. I can’t say I wasn’t warned.

I knew the job was dangerous when I took it. Hopefully, the readers will embrace my work for what it is and take me as I am.

I think she is quite photogenic,
just the way she is! :-)

Cover Art Done by Artist Mearone: MEAR ONE (Kalen Ockerman, b. 1971, Santa Cruz, CA) is a contemporary American artist based in Los Angeles.
MEAR ONE began his career in 1986 as a graffiti artist living in Los Angeles. MEAR ONE has been labeled as “The Michelangelo of Graffiti” and “The Salvador Dali of Hip-Hop.” He is considered by many to be Los Angeles’ most prolific graffiti artist because of the way he revolutionized graffiti with his fine-art realism, breaking out of traditional 2D letter forms, and using perspective to develop complex characters with dynamic backgrounds in epic scale. By the early 1990′s, he had established a large fan base through his notorious work on the streets, underground hip-hop album covers featuring his iconic imagery, and his involvement in pioneering early street wear clothing and graffiti culture. In 1993, MEAR was the first graffiti artists from Los Angeles to travel to Tokyo and paint graffiti in front of a live public audience. In the mid 90′s, hip hop imagery and cultural icons in his work were replaced with a deeper, more introspective conversation based around a politically disillusioned reality that he felt hip-hop had ceased to address. At this point he began his transition from street graffiti to canvas paintings, and began his first body of acrylic and airbrushed paintings.

Guest Post by J. Meyers, author of Intangible

Happy Friday the 13th!  As much craziness that happens in my life, this is just another day for me :-)...  I hope...

Today, my guest is Ms. J. Meyers, who is here with a little sneak peek at her novel, Intangible.  I love doing sneak peeks because you get to taste a little of the writing for yourself! I hope you all will grab a copy for yourself and love it as much as I did...

If you missed my review of Intangible, you can catch that HERE.

Excerpt from Intangible
by J. Meyers

Luke whipped around to the sound of pounding feet behind him.
Luke’s eyes scoured the parking lot, but there was no sign of the other guy. Quinn came to a screeching halt feet from Luke, bent over with his hands on his knees and wheezed loudly. Luke clapped him on the shoulder a couple of times, and Quinn held up an index finger in a just-give-me-a-moment sign.
When he’d caught his breath, he stood up, and said, “Is everything okay? I heard you yelling. Oh god, this hurts.” He squeezed his right side. “Why do people run for fun?”
“Yeah, it’s fine. Just some guy bothering Gloria. Sort of.”
“Seriously. What could possibly be fun about running?” Quinn glanced over at Gloria as she pulled her car out of the parking lot and onto the street heading north. He looked up at Luke again. “What do you mean sort of?”
Luke shook his head. “I don’t know. It was just...strange, I guess.” He watched Gloria’s taillights disappear. “But he’s gone now.” He looked at Quinn again and smiled. “How far did you run?”
“Three and a half blocks. And running sucks, I’m telling you. I’ll probably have shin splints tomorrow.”
“I don’t know. Sounds like you need to get in shape. You’re whimpering like a total wuss.”
“I am a total wuss, and intend to stay that way. You jock-types think every problem is solved by exercise. Not all of us want to be like you, you know.”
Luke laughed and clapped Quinn on the back. “Well, thanks for coming to the rescue.” Luke looked at Quinn for a moment. “So you heard me yelling from almost four blocks away? Really? Wow.” Luke nodded. “You have dog hearing?”
Quinn half shrugged and shook his head. “You’re just exceptionally loud when you’re squealing ‘Gloria! Gloria! Oh, help! Gloria!’ It was really quite embarrassing,” Quinn said. “I mean for you. I just came to stop you from humiliating yourself any further.”
“Helpful,” Luke said. “And thanks.”

Love it!  Thanks so much J!

Feature: Intangible by J. Meyers

*Crawling out of my editing hole*...  Well, hello everyone!  I hope you all have been having a wonderful week so far.  The weather here has cooled down a bit, and it is just wonderful!  I wish it would stay like this all year...

This week, I am featuring the lovely Ms. Meyers who has authored Intangible.  She will be with us tomorrow, April 13th, with a guest post, so be sure to stop back by and check that out.

Today, as usual, you get my review :-).

My Rating: ★★★★

Goodreads’ Synopsis:  Twins Sera and Luke Raine have a well-kept secret—she heals with a touch of her hand, he sees the future. All their lives they’ve helped those in need on the sly. They’ve always thought of their abilities as being a gift.

Then Luke has a vision that Sera is killed. That gift they’ve always cherished begins to feel an awful lot like a curse. Because the thing about Luke’s ability? He’s always right. And he can’t do anything about it.

This is another one of those books that has a little bit of everything, but thankfully, it is written really well and is never overwhelming.  There are several points of view included in the story, which I know some readers hate, but everything is put together in such a great way that I did not find it distracting at all. 

There were a few things I felt could have been fleshed out a bit more, but nothing really detrimental to the story.  Also, I was left with some questions, particularly about Quinn, but I am hoping to see more of him later. I think there is a really exciting ending and it was left so that the story could easily be continued, but the reader is just left hanging completely.

This is another fresh, paranormal book.  I like the idea of the twins.  The dynamic between the siblings, the bond they share, is amazing.  Overall, the read is very emotional, which I actually love.  Anything that can make me feel is good, regardless of what the feelings are!

Guest Post: "Erma Bombeck" by Laura Backes

Erma Bombeck

You may not have heard of her, but Erma Bombeck was one of the funniest women writers from the mid-1960s until the late 1990s. Sure, her bi-weekly column and small collection of books were all about the trials and tribulations of being a housewife and mother, but she took on the drudgery with a humor and irony that had me rolling in the aisles, even when I first discovered her in middle school.

Yes, you read that right. I have been reading and rereading her work since I was a wee tot, and I haven’t gotten tired of it yet. Every year older I get, I relate more and more to her life and the general un-funniness of it all; that she twisted into a humorous, laugh out loud riot.

She lived through the women’s movement, fought for the Equal Right Amendment, and pushed her way through the backlash of a working, stay at home mother. She was a pioneer. Involved in both business and her family in a way that generations before her were not and generations after her would strive to be.

Back to her books. Though she has many, and all are funny- to various degrees- though I enjoy my first find the best. From 1976, The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank makes me laugh to this day. Even the name gives you a glimpse of what life was like and how Erma merged old concepts with new ways of living. A chronicle of the first suburban sprawl, the first drive in movies, the first sex education in schools; this book makes you want to cringe even as you laugh, bringing to light days that you never lived through and times you were glad you missed.

A few of my favorite Erma quotes, just to give you a taste:
  • "Insanity is hereditary. You can catch it from your kids."
  • "My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first one being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint."
  • "If a man watches three football games in a row, he should be declared legally dead."
  • "Mothers-in-law who wear a black armband to the wedding are expendable."
  • "The only reason I would take up jogging is so I could hear heavy breathing again."
  • "Ironed Sheets are a health hazard."
  • "In general, my children refused to eat anything that hadn't danced on TV."
  • "When humor goes, there goes civilization."
  • "Seize the moment. Think of all those women on the 'Titanic' who waved off the dessert cart."
  • "Never loan your car to anyone to whom you've given birth."
  • "If you can laugh at it, you can live with it."

I'm not foolin'... Lizzy Ford is here! - Rhyn Trilogy Tour - GIVEAWAY!

Happy April Fool's Day!  I'm not one for pranks, usually, but it's always fun to see what other people try to pull.  I hope you all have a fun day no matter which end of the joke you find yourself on :-)...

We're back today for Lizzy Ford's Rhyn Trilogy Tour, and Lizzy has been kind enough to pop by for a little interview.  In case you missed it, you can catch my review of Katie's Hellion (Rhyn Trilogy #1) HERE.

Be sure to enter the GIVEAWAY below for your own Rhyn Trilogy goodies!!!

Author Interview

Lizzy Ford
Rhyn Trilogy

GL:  Go ahead and introduce yourself to everyone. :-)

Lizzy:  Hello! I’m Lizzy.  I’m a freak of nature writing machine who lives in southern Arizona with my very patient husband, three dogs and a cat.  I’ve been writing since the third grade, when I wrote what I thought was the world’s best essay on how stars were really just huge balls of gas.  From then, I was hooked, though I didn’t start publishing my stories until January 2011. 

GL:  Now, tell us a bit about the Rhyn Trilogy.

LF:  The Rhyn Trilogy details the journey of the half-demon, Rhyn, and Katie, the human destined to be his mate.  Flawed, unapologetic and unable to control his power, Rhyn has long been considered the black sheep of his family who can do nothing right.  When forced to care for someone else for once, he struggles with his inherent weakness and his duty.  If he can’t learn to fight alongside his brothers, he’ll lose his mate.

Katie is immune to the magic of immortals and finds herself being pursued by demons and immortals alike, both of which want to use her.  She’s got one ally: Rhyn, whose half-demon nature impedes his ability to help her.  Together, they must carve their own paths in immortal society in the midst of a war with demons, while learning to care for one another. 

The Rhyn Trilogy is the prequel to the Rhyn Eternal series, which launches this fall.  It’s been an incredible series for me in that it’s put me in contact with so many readers!

GL:  You’ve written about 239875 books.  Can you tell us a little about what else you have out there?

LF:  Haha sure!  I have the War of Gods series, which consists of three books currently and is another paranormal romance series; the Foretold Trilogy, a young adult fantasy series I launched in December; and a few single-titles, to include Kiera’s Moon (sci-fi romance); Maddy’s Oasis (contemporary romance); A Demon’s Desire (paranormal romance) and The Warlord’s Secret (fantasy romance.)

My paranormals – and Kiera’s Moon – are by far my most popular.  Most of my readers consider my solitary contemporary romance to be a bomb! 

GL:  What inspired the Rhyn Trilogy?

LF:  Dreams. Almost all my books start out in dreams.  The scene where Katie is going to work on the commuter train and meets the kid, who then claims she’s his mama, was from a dream.  From there, the puzzle pieces just fit themselves into place around the scene to create a story.

GL:  I get SO many ideas from my dreams.  Finding time to sit down and write about them is another story…

GL:  Where did the mythology (The Council, etc.) of the story come from? 

LF:  I’m not sure.  The Council originally had seven brothers: one who was assigned to protect a continent against evil.  However, one of the brothers betrayed the others, and another (Rhyn) was sent to Hell for his inability to control his powers.  In the first Rhyn book, the eldest brother is killed, which makes the Council start to splinter. 

This one was pure imagination, as opposed to the mythology behind the War of Gods series, which was inspired by Slavic mythology.  All of my fantasy and paranormal books normally have some sort of good vs. evil theme to them.  I don’t know that the Rhyn Trilogy’s theme was particularly inspired by any one myth! 

GL:  Do you ever base your characters on anyone you know?

LF:  I don’t know that I base them on people I know, but I do name my characters after people I know.  “Katie” from the Rhyn Trilogy was named after my first rabid fan, Katie.  “Jenn” from the War of Gods series was named after my second rabid fan by the same name.  Another War of Gods character, Yully, was named by one of my fans. 

I honestly never thought my writing would go anywhere, so when people started responding to me, I felt humbled and honored and felt naming characters after my biggest fans was one way of giving back. 

GL:  That is awesome!  I’ll be on the lookout for Cassie… Hahahaha…

GL:  If you can share, what is your absolute favorite scene from the trilogy?

LF:  I want to say the scene at the end of Katie’s Hope (book 2), when the main characters figure out just how far they’ll go to protect one another.  Rhyn is facing a fight with the demon lord and Death’s assassin, but he does it knowing 1- he might be able to save Katie and 2- he’ll probably die.  Katie, on the other hand, knows how to save Rhyn, and that’s by basically killing herself.  So they both barrel towards these decisions, and it’s a culmination of both emotions and the point where they both choose someone else above their own interests.  I was proud of them. :-)

GL:  If you were casting for the Rhyn Trilogy to hit the big screen, are there any faces in particular you’d choose to play the parts of:  Rhyn?  Katie?  Kris?  Ully?

Rhyn: Jason Mamoa.  Dear me, that man is beautiful and has this honeyed growl of a voice.  *swoons*
Katie: Emma Watson, because I love her earthy, natural beauty.
Kris: Chris Pine (the guy who played Captain Kirk in the new Star Trek.)
Ully: Elijah Wood, just because I really like him!

GL:  Very nice!  I had the hardest time picturing Ully, I totally get Elijah!

GL:  Do you prefer the good guy or the bad guy or the bad guy with the good heart? ;-)

LF:  I prefer the character able to face and overcome his weaknesses to do the right thing. :-)  That, to me, shows the ultimate character of someone – to deal with diversity and obstacles but still make the right choice!

GL:  What challenges have you faced in the writing/publishing process?

LF:  The greatest initial challenge was spending ten years trying to find an agent or publisher who would give me the time of day.  Before the e-publishing revolution, there really wasn’t a viable way for most writers to get their books into the hands of readers.   So I did what everyone else did: sent in queries to people who never responded.

Once the e-pubbing technology appeared on the scene, I was a bit slow to adapt.  I should’ve started 2-3 years before I did, but I still felt the stigma that used to go along with self-pubbing, that only people who couldn’t make it elsewhere would do such an awful thing as pay to publish their own books!  It sounds ridiculous now, because I’ve seen the results of that path.

Aside from that, I used to work fulltime, prior to this past fall.  Finding time to write meant I was ignoring my family, until I became a fulltime writer. 

GL:  What are some of your favorite authors/books?

LF:  “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen is my all time favorite.  I love “Keegan’s Chronicles” by Julia Crane (indie author.)  “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” is one I’m reading now about how to change your life so that you actually enjoy it instead of rushing from one thing to the next.  “Letters From a Bipolar Mother” by Alyssa Reyans is an incredible read about the mind of someone who suffers from depression.

GL:  Favorite movie(s)?

LF:  Zoolander, Star Wars, Bridget Jones, any kind of cheesy action flick with explosions, anything sort of mindless and entertaining. 

GL:  Favorite guilty pleasure?

LF:  FOOD! I love all the kinds of food that are bad for me!  Chocolates, pastries, breads, pastas, waffles, cookies … *sighs* but I’m on an eat-healthier kick because I need to look less round for my appearances this year! 

GL:  I’m not sure why God made food that is bad for you taste so darn good!

GL:  Favorite quote?

I’m a fan of Hamlet, and I’ve always loved the “to be or not to be” speech where he says, “where ‘tis nobler in the mind’s eye to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them.”

GL:  Do you write to music or keep it quiet?  What do you like to listen to?

LF:  It really depends.  I prefer quiet, but I have an awful time focusing on anything. When I have a writing deadline, I’ll listen to music to drown out all the other stuff in my head so I can concentrate!  Otherwise, I’m normally happy with just a quiet house.

Let’s see, I listen to lots of different things.  It seems like certain books choose their own music.  Rhyn’s Redemption (which I just released) had the theme music of “Little Lion Man.”  Some of my others have had rap, electronica or classical going when I was writing.

GL:  What are you working on now?  What do we have to look forward to?

LF:  Right now I’m wrapping up Rebel Heart, a futuristic romance I started in Jan/Feb but set aside when I hit a brick wall.  Even I need a break, and that was the lesson I learned a couple of months ago!  Next year, I’m taking Jan and Feb off without doing anything!

After that, the rest of the year is going to be crazy.  I want to release another ten books this year.  One down, nine to go (schedule below!) which includes launching three new series this year. And I’ve got three appearances where I’m booked as an exhibitor lined up so far: the Phoenix Comic Convention in May, the Book Expo America in NY in June and the Southern Festival of Books in October. 

GL:  I plan to attend the Southern Festival of Books, so I will definitely look you up! :-)

April: Rebel Heart
