The Bourbon Country Series by Chris Bostic (giveaway)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Chris Bostic is the author of exciting adventure thrillers. From his home in suburban St. Louis, he turns family vacations and Boy Scout trips into gripping survival novels. The Northwoods Trilogy was his first series, with the setting chosen thanks to a BSA High Adventure trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Then came his SciFi series The Savage Horde, as well as a trio of standalone novels. He’s now rolled out a new series set in the Smoky Mountains.

Chris continues to build on his brand of epic adventure books. This year featured a three book set – The Bushwhackers Series – set in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The books are: Prepper Mountain, Shadow Warriors, and Jailbreak.

Then came another three book set, The Bourbon Country Series, to close out the year. Whiskey Thief, Kentucky Hug, and Barrel Strength mark a departure from teen fiction into a mature audience blend of psychological thriller and romantic suspense.

Whiskey Thief (The Bourbon Country Series Book 1) by Chris Bostic ~ Genre: Psychological Thriller, Romantic Suspense

When their Kentucky bourbon tour takes a turn for the worse, two engaged couples join up with strangers to seek shelter in the ruins of an old distillery. Grace encounters more than abandoned spirits on the decaying property, bringing her semi-comfortable world crashing down.

Tensions pull at the group, splintering the couples into teams. Only it’s hard for Grace to know what side to be on when bonds are tested, and opposites no longer attract. Questions abound. Who really are the strangers they paired up with? Should she break convenient bonds for a risky one? Then again, does it even matter if they don’t make it out alive?

Please be advised – The Bourbon Country Series features fast-paced adult psychological thrillers where sexual assault, PTSD, self-blame, and functional alcoholism combine to form a potent blend. Recommended for mature audiences, ages 18+

Kentucky Hug (The Bourbon Country Series Book 2)

It’s been six long months since Grace’s world turned upside down. She unexpectedly finds herself back in bourbon country with Vince, dredging up memories barely concealed. Anxiety builds when a mysterious stranger shadows them, but it’s her own indecisiveness that first leads to misadventure.

Just like a flight of unfamiliar bourbons, Grace can only wonder if each of her trials will unleash a rot gut burn or a warm Kentucky Hug. More likely a mixture of both.

Please be advised – The Bourbon Country Series features fast-paced adult psychological thrillers where sexual assault, PTSD, self-blame, and functional alcoholism combine to form a potent blend. Recommended for mature audiences, ages 18+

Barrel Strength (The Bourbon Country Series Book 3)

After another nine solid months, things couldn’t be going much better for Grace. Life has settled into a comfortable routine. So, of course, she’s headed back to bourbon country with Vince. Maybe not the destination wedding she’d been dreaming about more recently, but the venue couldn’t be any more perfect. Or so they thought.

Wedding day should be a joyous occasion for the couple, but nothing is ever easy for them—especially when a manhunt locks down the venue and spirits flow from sleeping barrels.

Please be advised – The Bourbon Country Series features fast-paced adult psychological thrillers where sexual assault, PTSD, self-blame, and functional alcoholism combine to form a potent blend. Recommended for mature audiences, ages 18+

How long have you been writing?

Over 8 years now.  I am up to 18 published books, all self-published.  Five of those books were originally Indie published, but I have the rights back to all of them now.

Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?

I generally try to flesh out every character all the way down to names and characteristics before I am through the first chapter.  Sometimes they change a little bit as the story progresses, but I like to have an idea of quirks, flaws, appearance, etc… ready to go on page one.

What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book?

Most all of my books are based on places I have been—often as family vacations. I’m the planning type of vacationer, so I spend hours on the ‘things to do’ part of a vacation. That all comes in handy when it’s time to write.

Do you see writing as a career?

Not for me. I wish, but not yet. After 18 books it feels a whole lot less like a hobby, but it’s just not to where I can support a family. Maybe a retirement job. I can definitely see that.

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?

I used to read a whole lot more, but after I started writing I found myself not wanting to spend the time reading when I could be working on my own books.  I’ve always been a fan of military history, dystopian societies, and the occasional SciFi.  But less SciFi these days. That was more of a childhood thing.

Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?

I tend to like background noise.  My music choice varies with the scenes I write too, with harder rock music when I get into some conflict scenes.  It’s funny, but sometimes I find song lyrics blended into my rough drafts. It’s some kind of weird subliminal thing I do.

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?

I have never worked on more than one book at a time. I don’t know how well I could do two. I get in the writing zone and obsessed with completion, so I don’t know that I could focus on one book if I was trying to wrap up another. About the only thing I will do is write down is ideas for other books while I’m working on a different one.

Pen or type writer or computer?

Definitely computer.  Sometimes I will put some notes on my phone if an idea strikes me while I am out, but I do 100% of my writing in Microsoft Word on my laptop.  I don’t even pencil down notes if I can avoid it.

A day in the life of the author?

I only write about half the months out of a year, or less. I won’t start a new book unless I know I have at least a couple weeks of free time to where I can write from start to finish on a draft.  When writing, weekend days look a lot like: wake up early, write until breakfast, work in a few hours of writing time in the am and pm around chores and family fun time, then several hours later in the evening.  Weekdays meaning writing for an hour on lunch break, and then a few more hours that evening after supper.

Describe your writing style.

Pretty linear. I’m not big on jumping from one scene to somewhere totally different. I like to take a small group of characters and develop them through the challenges they encounter. Typically it’s a normal day that turns into a real adventure. Most of my books span the events of a single day, maybe two.

What is your writing process? For instance do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?

I like to start writing with a general idea where I’d like to end up. I’ve tried to outline stories, but it hasn’t always worked out the best for me.  Once I had three pages of what I thought were great notes.  I was so sure it had the makings of a great story, but by the time I started writing I was through all the notes by about page 35.  Needless to say, the story took off and evolved from there. Now I outline a few chapters ahead, writing down ideas and scenes for what could happen, then filling in the details.

What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?

I’ve been told that I’m actually rather good at it.  I don’t know how exactly, but several of my recent books have a female lead, and I’ve not once had a negative reaction. In fact, several reviewers have commented that they would never know it was written by a man.  Not sure what that says about me….

How long on average does it take you to write a book?

About two months or less of actual writing/editing time.  I try not to start anything until I can devote enough time to finish the draft.  So I tend to rough it the whole story in 10-20 days (generally 2 weekends and the nights in between).  Then I take a little time off.  Editing is another full week, or more if it needs extra work. Then another week of editing and proofreading after that.

I’m happy to be one of many tour hosts sharing information about the Bourbon Country Series by Chris Bostic.

Alex Pearl ~ Author Interview

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Alex Pearl, author of The Chair Man and Sleeping with the Blackbirds!

Alex’s first novel ‘Sleeping with the Blackbirds’, a darkly humorous urban fantasy, written for children and young adults, was initially published by PenPress in 2011. It has since become a Kindle bestseller in the US. In 2014, his fictionalised account of the first British serviceman to be executed for cowardice during the First World War was published by Mardibooks in its anthology, ‘The Clock Struck War’. A selection of his blog posts is also available in paperback under the title ‘Random Ramblings of a Short-sighted Blogger.’ In 2019, his psychological thriller, ‘The Chair Man’ that is set in London in 2005 following the terrorist attack on its public transport system, was published as an ebook by Fizgig Press. The paperback followed in 2020.

Alex lives in NW London with his wife and two children who are far smarter than their old man.

He is quite possibly the only human being on this planet to have been inadvertently locked in a record shop on Christmas Eve.

Let’s start by finding out a little bit about you…

  1. What is your name and do you write under a pen name?  My name is Alex Pearl, and I was very tempted to write under the pen name Bertram Bolzwinick, which was the name of my grandfather who died before I was born. He was from Russia or Poland; I’m not sure which. Sadly, when he arrived on these shores he changed his name by deed poll to Bertram Davis, which doesn’t have the same cachet. However, having toyed with the idea, I finally decide to stick with my own name simply because everyone I’m linked to online knows me as Alex Pearl.
  2. Where do you call home? I live in NW London and I have always lived in London. The area I live in is known as Hampstead Garden Suburb, which was set up in 1906 as part of the garden suburb movement. And we are very close to a large heathland known as Hampstead Heath.
  3. Obviously, we know you are an author, but some writers have other jobs as well. Do you have another occupation? Do you believe you’re any good at it? Do you like what you do? I have retired from work now. I used to be an advertising copywriter, so writing has been something I did professionally for around 35 years. 
  4. What is your family like? It’s getting quieter as both our children have now flown the nest. My wife, unfortunately, became a tetraplegic seven years ago when she was very suddenly diagnosed with a spinal tumor, which was impossible to remove. So she now relies on a power chair, but it doesn’t stop her from working and driving a car. She does a lot of work for organizations that assist those with physical and mental disabilities.
  5. If it doesn’t bother you, can you let us know what your childhood home looked like? I was born in Wanstead, east London, which used to be Winston Churchill’s constituency. and I was brought up in an area called Ilford. Ilford is a large sprawling suburban conurbation on the eastern outskirts of Greater London. Its most attractive feature is a well-tended park, Valentines Park
  6. Do you have any hobbies, other than writing? What do you enjoy doing? I used to paint large abstract compositions on glass, but I haven’t done that for years. Other than writing, I spend time reading, gardening, cooking and all the household chores. Naturally, my wife can’t do too much in terms of physical work from her wheelchair.
  7. What is your greatest dream? Ooh. I suppose that would be winning some ludicrous literary prize. The Pulitzer perhaps or the Booker. I think I’d settle for the Booker. That would be pretty cool. And I could make a nonchalant acceptance speech to the effect that I had come to the conclusion that the judges had clearly lost their minds or their glasses, or both as they had clearly made some kind of mistake as there were so many more deserving winners in the room.
  8. What kind of person do you wish you could be? What is stopping you? I wish I could play the piano very well. I just think it would be a wonderful gift to have. My son learnt as a child and got up to Grade 8 very quickly while he was at primary school. He’s very good at math, which clearly helps. There is definitely a correlation between music and math. I am terrible at math and I know instinctively that I would never make the grade as a pianist. so I have never tried.
  9. Not to pry too much, but do you remember your first love? Yes. Her name was Helen Lewis. She was the first girl that ever made me go weak at the knees. We were both five years of age at the time. And I don’t think I ever had the courage to say a single word to her.
  10. What is the most terrible thing that ever happened to you? Getting locked in a record shop on Christmas Eve. Thankfully, I didn’t forego turkey and Christmas pudding as my father was able to contact the police. This was long before mobile phones had been invented. And within a couple of hours, I was freed from my temporary prison. It was, however, a fairly frightening experience. and one I wouldn’t recommend. 
  11. What or who inspired you to start writing? And how long have you been writing? There have been several people. Going back to my school days, I had a very unusual and inspiring English teacher by the name of Clive Lawton. He was very charismatic and had an affinity with kids to the extent that he really was on our wavelength. He’d do the most extraordinary things and turn everything on its head. On one occasion he announced that instead of him marking our essays he was going to ask us to mark his, and then handed out old essays he’d written in the past. He’d often tell us that the syllabus was boring and that we were going to ignore it and have a serious discussion about something fairly contentious like advertising and the blatant use of sexual imagery. The point of his lessons was to make us think and to convey to us the power of words. And by teaching in this wholly unconventional and radical manner, he not only gained the attention of every single child in that classroom. He also instilled a love of words and ideas. And as a result, every child in my class passed their O level exams, and nobody received anything less than a B grade.                                                                                                                                                                Later on, when I started working as an advertising copywriter, my Creative Director, a man by the name of Ken Mullen was also influential. Ken was and still is a brilliant writer. He had two degrees in English Literature from Oxford University and is the only English advertising copywriter to have had his work quoted in the Oxford Book of Modern quotations. These included two headlines he had penned for The Times newspaper when he was working for Leo Burnett – ‘Our sages know their onions.’  And ‘No pomp. Just circumstance.’ He encouraged his entire creative department to immerse themselves in literature, cinema and the arts in general. But perhaps, more importantly, he wore his learning lightly and was incredibly funny and approachable. He was, in short, the best boss you could ever hope for.
  12. What was your dream growing up? Did you achieve that dream? If so, in what ways was it not what you expected? If you never achieved the dream, why not? I’m not sure that I ever really had a dream when I was growing up. Not one that I can readily remember at any rate. I never really knew what I wanted to do when I left school. I was never particularly studious and I wasn’t heading for university. But I wasn’t bad at art, so at the very last minute I applied to go to art college, and it was here that I became interested in creative advertising and teamed up with a good friend at college. And together we pestered a lot of people in the business with a portfolio of our ideas, and eventually, someone relented and gave us a job. So in answer to your original question, I guess I achieved my goal, which was a kind of dream I suppose.
  13. Who is your role model? I think my father was a pretty good role model. He was an incredibly good father and grandfather. And was very community-minded. There was nothing he wouldn’t do to help someone else; even a complete stranger. He was an incredibly generous, warm-hearted man and I miss him.
  14. What is your greatest fear? Death. Woody Allen was once asked if he liked the idea of becoming immortal through his writing and he replied that he’d prefer to become immortal through not dying. I’m with him on that one.
  15. Do you prefer e-books, paperbacks, hard-covers or audio-books? Call me old fashioned, but I’m afraid books, either hardbacks or paperbacks win hands down. There’s nothing quite like having a book in your hands.
  16. Have you ever read a book more than once? And if so what was it? Yes. It was the first book I ever read as a child. ‘Stig of the Dump’ by Clive King. I reread it recently out of interest – just to see if I still thought it was a terrific children’s book. And happily, I can report that it is every bit as good as I thought it was as a young child. It’s charmingly written, rather clever, and very touching.
  17. What is your opinion of novellas? I see no massive difference really between a short story, novella, and full-length novel. They all have to be compelling. Obviously, with the shorter form, the writing has to be more economical and concise. But that in itself is an art form, and many believe that mastering the short story is more skillful than the full-blown novel. I’m not sure that I necessarily agree with that. I think it’s difficult to generalize. In Japan, of course, there is a very great tradition for writing short stories and there are authors who write nothing more. But at the end of the day, a good story that is well written is a good story, whether it’s in long or short form.
  18. Have you ever read a book just based on its cover? Ooh, that’s a good question. As someone who studied graphic design, I’m sure there should be a book cover that I was drawn to, but interestingly, there isn’t one I can think of. In fact, so many really good books seem to have such anodyne and forgettable covers, which is a shame. 
  19. What is your favorite film based on a book? There are two films that immediately spring to mind that succeed in capturing the essence of a book. And that’s something that’s really hard to do with the medium of film, because you simply don’t have the same enormous scope of a book and you can’t appeal to the imagination; and, of course, you have to leave a huge amount out. The first film that for me comes close is ‘To kill a Mockingbird’ the film adaptation of the book by Harper Lee that stars Gregory Peck in the lead part of Atticus Finch. It’s faithful to the book and does a near-perfect job of recreating its characters. And the other film is ‘Schindler’s List’, the Spielberg film adaptation of Thomas Keneally’s book that was originally titled ‘Schindler’s Ark’, which is arguably a better title. Again, the film is a pretty faithful adaptation of the book, but is also filmed in a highly realistic way by using hand-held cameras and adopting a reportage style of shooting that is very matter of fact and a million miles away from Hollywood. Both films did well at the Oscars, winning among other things ‘Best Adapted Screenplay.’  
  20. What is your favorite book genre at the moment? I don’t really have one. But I tend to read literary, historical, and thrillers.
  21. What books have made it onto your wish list recently? And why? ‘Beneath a Scarlet Sky’ by Mark Sullivan is a book I’ve just bought because it has received a torrent of rave reviews and it sounds like a great read. My cousin also recommended it and he has impeccable taste, so it must be pretty special. It’s also based on a true story set in Italy during the war. 
  22. What book are you reading at the moment? And in what format? I’ve just finished reading ‘The Last Lemming’ by my old friend Chris Chalmers who, like me, also used to be an advertising copywriter. That’s how we met. Chris is a very talented writer. This is his fifth book; they’ve all been magnificent. ‘The Last Lemming’ is an engaging yarn that combines mystery, humour and a dash of romance to great effect. In Mr. Chalmers’ inimitable style, we are introduced to the lives of two disparate central characters: in the form of TV naturalist, Prof Leo Saunders and Claire Webster, a young Personal Trainer with aspirations to become an investigative journalist. There are two distinct threads to the narrative: one set in the mid-1980s and the other in the present-day narrated by our amateur female journalist. The plot involves Saunders admitting on Youtube just before dying that his one claim to fame – the discovery of the Potley Hill lemming – was in fact a hoax and that a certain advertising luminary had ‘blood on his hands.’ While the stunt is eventually written off as nothing more than unreliable ramblings of a sick man, Webster decides to investigate and use her findings for her dissertation on her journalism course. This entertaining and deftly plotted tale involves a cast of colourful characters including some of the furry variety. It’s a skilfully woven yarn with some lovely descriptive passages that establish time and place. And in the best tradition, there are, of course, dead bodies
  23. If you could invite any four (4) celebrities (alive or dead) to your dinner party, who would you invite and why? Ooh blimey. Well, I once had the pleasure of sitting next to the novelist, Beryl Bainbridge at an advertising awards dinner and I found her both delightful and fascinating, and I love her books, so I wouldn’t mind inviting her. I reckon Stephen Fry would be good value. And I’ve always admired and really liked Archbishop Desmund Tutu. And to add the cherry to the icing I’d invite Mr. Barak Obama, one of America’s most articulate Presidents. I think that would be one hell of a dinner party. In fact, I don’t suppose I’d ger around to eating very much in such esteemed company. 

Let’s shift somewhat and talk about your latest story.

  1. What is the name of your most recent book and if you had to sum it up in 20 or fewer words, what would you say? The title of my latest book is ‘The Chair Man‘, which is a thriller. Here’s a 20-word summation: Having survived a terrorist attack, Michael is now a wheelchair user seeking retribution online – but will become a sitting target.
  2. Is the above book part of a series? That is a distinct possibility. Several people have said that they would love to read a sequel. And though the book has a natural conclusion, there is certainly another story that can be woven from the book’s remnants; and it’s something I’m working on. But I say this a lot to people, the plotting of a book is something I find particularly challenging and difficult. And I can’t start writing a book without having the synopsis mapped out. It can and will evolve as I write it, but without this road map, I will just get hopelessly lost. 
  3. How did you come up with the cover? Who designed the cover of your book(s)? That’s a very good question and I’m pleased you asked me that because I’m fortunate to have a very good friend named John Mac who is a brilliant advertising photographer and director. And he kindly photographed and designed the covers to both my books. In fact, for ‘Sleeping with the Blackbirds’ he shot a stunningly beautiful trailer, too. You can watch it here. We were both particularly pleased with the cover for ‘The Chair Man’. Back in 1998, John had been commissioned by the film director Guy Ritchie to produce the film poster for his film ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’. And for my cover, John has used a similar approach by creating a very strong silhouette against a stark white background with quite distressed typography. It is very distinctive and feels absolutely right for the book. 
  4. Did you listen to any particular songs while writing your book(s)? No. I generally can’t work that effectively with music on. I need silence. Music is just too distracting. It was the same when I worked at an advertising agency. We needed our own quiet space to think. That said, there are several music references in ‘The Chair Man’ The title pages to part one and part two are the titles of songs by Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello from 2005. And one of the characters in the book loves the classical piano playing of Glenn Gould – particularly bach’s Golberg Variations.   
  5. How did you come up with the title for your book(s)? ‘Sleeping with the Blackbirds’ as a title came to me fairly early on, and I just liked it from the outset. It has a certain ring to it that sounds lyrical. ‘The Chair Man’ is the moniker that the terrorists use to describe the book’s protagonist Michael Hollinghurst, so I thought it would make a good title – particularly against a graphic book cover.
  6. Do you have a book trailer? If so, where can we watch it? I have a book trailer for my first book ‘Sleeping with the Blackbirds’, which was shot by my good friend John Mac and edited, dubbed, graded and animated by Hogarth Worldwide. You can watch it on Youtube here.
  7. In your latest novel, who is the lead character, and can you tell us a little about him/her? Michael Hollinghurst is the lead character. He’s a very successful corporate lawyer. His marriage to his wife is beginning to fall apart and eventually does when Michael becomes the victim of a terrorist attack that leaves him in a wheelchair. His two kids who are in their mid to late 20s choose to live with him, and you get a sense that he is a good father who cares deeply for his two children. And they likewise are very close to him. Following a lengthy stay in rehab following his ordeal, Michael suffers from feelings of guilt having survived the blast when everyone else in his carriage didn’t. He finds it difficult to come to terms with his predicament and his anger is channeled into a plan for retribution.
  8. What are your character’s greatest strengths? His greatest strengths are his warmth and compassion, not to mention his intelligence and his generosity. 
  9. And what are his/her greatest weaknesses? His greatest weakness is his complete and utter inability to forgive and forget. When he makes a decision he is like a dog with a bone. He simply won’t let go of it.
  10. What are some of his/her favorite foods? He likes fish and is partial to wine, particularly Spanish Rioja.
  11. What’s a positive quality that your character is unaware that he or she has? Despite his anger and bitterness towards the perpetrators of the terrorist attack, he is fairly stoical and pretty brave about his own position. Part of him feels pangs of guilt for surviving, and these feelings drive him to feel a moral obligation to act on behalf of those who were killed. So he is brave, stoical and determined. Positive traits that he almost certainly doesn’t recognize in himself.
  12. Will readers like or dislike this character, and why? Readers have mixed feelings about Michael. Some like him and admire his close relationship with his kids. They also seem to sympathize with his obsessive need for retribution. Other readers aren’t so sympathetic. They see him as a rich white arrogant man who is prepared to put his family’s lives at risk just to seek revenge. They see him as a reckless individual who hasn’t tried to even think through the ramifications of his actions. And some also think that the devious way in which he gets his neighbor’s autistic son to help him hack into an East London mosque is really manipulative and morally wrong.
  13. What first gave you the idea for your latest book? The germ of the idea sprang from my wife’s predicament. She became ill seven years ago with a spinal tumor and ended up in a wheelchair. She is, however a very strong and resilient individual and doesn’t let her predicament stop her doing what she wants, within reason. So naturally, I know a fair bit about spinal injuries and wheelchairs, and I thought it would be a good idea to develop a character that had survived a terror attack and ends up in a wheelchair. But like my wife, I didn’t want my protagonist to roll over and lead a quiet life. I wanted him to go a bit crazy and actively go after other terrorists by using his wits and, of course, the internet.

Let’s talk now about your writing process.

  1. What is your writing style like? Are you a pantster or a plotter? As far as style is concerned, I think I’m a bit of a chameleon. As an advertising copywriter, I’m used to adopting different tones of voice to address different audiences. I think it’s the same when it comes to writing books. My first book for children, young adults and parents was deliberately written in an old-fashioned, whimsical style redolent of authors like Clive King and Roald Dhal. When it came to writing ‘The Chair Man’ though, I adopted a crisp modern unfussy style of writing that felt right for the subject matter. When it comes to my approach to writing, I’m most certainly a plotter. I need a road map to see where I’m going. The story can evolve as I write it, but I have to have very clear directions and know where the thing is heading. So before writing the first chapter, I have to have a fairly detailed synopsis typed out; and the ending is absolutely crucial. And I’m very pleased that the endings to both of my books are I think unexpected and satisfying full stops.
  2. Have you come across any specific challenges in writing or publishing? What would you do differently the next time? Proofreading assistance is something I will certainly invest in next time around. No matter how many times you go through your manuscript, there will always be errors you miss. And it isn’t just indie authors that have this problem. I see typos in mainstream publications by the big publishing houses that a whole team of editors and proofreaders have missed.
  3. Are you a self-published/Indie author or did you publish through a traditional publishing company? I’m an indie author. I publish through Amazon (print on demand and ebooks) and Smashwords for all the other e-platforms.
  4. If you’re a self-published/Indie author what made you go that route instead of the traditional publishing route? I tried approaching literary agents through the traditional channels but haven’t yet received anything other than polite rejection letters several months after my submissions. So the next best thing is to self-publish. 
  5. What’s the best advice that you have been given when it comes to writing? “Read, read, read everything – trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out the window.” William Faulkner
  6. What advice would you give someone who wants to start writing?  Formulate a story in your head; write it down as a synopsis; once you are happy with it, start writing your book; enjoy the journey.

Michael Hollinghurst is a successful corporate lawyer living a comfortable, suburban life in leafy North West London. But on 7 July 2005, his life is transformed when he steps on a London underground train targeted by Islamist suicide bombers. While most passengers in his carriage are killed, Michael survives the explosion but is confined to a wheelchair as a result. Coming to terms with his predicament and controlling his own feelings of guilt as a survivor conspire to push him in a direction that is out of character and a tad reckless. In a quest to seek retribution, he resorts to embracing the internet and posing as a radical Islamist in order to snare potential perpetrators. Much to his surprise, his shambolic scheme yields results and is brought to the attention of both GCHQ and a terrorist cell. But before long, dark forces begin to gather and close in on him. There is seemingly no way out for Michael Hollinghurst. He has become, quite literally, a sitting target. 


Eleven-year-old schoolboy, Roy Nuttersley has been dealt a pretty raw deal. While hideous parents show him little in the way of love and affection, school bullies make his life a misery. So Roy takes comfort in looking after the birds in his suburban garden, and in return the birds hatch a series of ambitious schemes to protect their new friend.

As with the best-laid plans, however, these get blown completely off course – and as a result the lives of both Roy and his arch tormentor, Harry Hodges are turned upside down. While Harry has a close encounter with God, Roy embarks on a voyage of discovery that draws in and impacts on everyone around him, including the local police, his headmaster and the national media. Where will it all end, and will life ever be quite the same for Roy Nuttersley?

Can you, for those who don’t know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?

Since I was little, I’ve always loved writing. I wrote my first short story when I was eight or nine on my mom’s typewriter and always wanted to do more with creative writing. Then with most of us, life happened, and I had to work, and life got busy. I hadn’t written in a long time, but it was always at the back of my mind. When I read it was possible to self-publish, I knew I had to do this or regret it for the rest of my life. In 2015 I had more time on my hands and started writing short stories again. In 2017, I self-published my first book and I haven’t looked back since. I still have a day job, I’m an analyst, and I’m aiming to become a full-time writer.

What is something unique/quirky about you?

            I have a wicked sense of humor that I try to add to my books, along with little Easter eggs.

Tell us something really interesting that’s happened to you!

            I’m from South Africa and stayed in Chicago for six weeks which was quite a big deal back then. I also won a Star Award at my previous company and I travelled to Dubai – the best part was going to the Abu Dhabi Ferrari World.

What are some of your pet peeves?

            Slow drivers

Where were you born/grew up at?

            Johannesburg, South Africa. I love the sea and we moved to Cape Town in 2017—I need my walks on the beach.

If you knew you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?

            With my daughter and hubby

Who is your hero and why?

            My mom, she’s no longer around but she loved to read and got me hooked. And I miss her every day.

What kind of world ruler would you be?

            A chilled one who hates conflict, and people who hurt animals and others.

What are you passionate about these days?

            My writing—boring I know but I’ve taken it more seriously this last year and want to get my bookie-babies out there.

What do you do to unwind and relax?

            A walk on the beach, Netflix, or something with my daughter.

How to find time to write as a parent?

            It’s difficult, but I get up really early to do some marketing and write before work starts. Now that the world has gone bonkers, I work from home which cuts travel time and that gives me extra hours to write.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!

            Disciplined, dedicated, not too serious.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

            Only after I published my Urban Fantasy series. Before then it didn’t feel real, but now it does—and people are buying my books (love you, guys).

Do you have a favorite movie?

            Silence of the Lambs

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

            Definitely my Blaire Thorne books.

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

            None yet, only a retreat to my office (with the door closed)

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

            Black panther

Follow him on Social Media here:


Author Kristen Collins is a Native Texan. She is a part-time working mother/housewife, as well as a Lupus Warrior. 

Thanks to the encouragement of her friends and family, she found a passion in writing paranormal romance books. 

She likes to explore new types of characters such as Sandmen and Boogeymen.

Angels are also a part of her obsession; she will sit on the computer doing extensive research on both Sandmen and Angels trying to get her facts straight when writing.

She also creates Art Journals that can be cross generational from thirteen to sixty years younger. Her goal with the art journals is to reach people who need a little extra feel good in their lives.

When the Queen of the Sandmen, Ana, decrees that she will give teddy bears magic through the power of their golden Sandman dust and life is sustained through the belief of a child, the only purpose is to protect the children from nightmares, or rather the monsters under the bed. The Boogeymen who were defeated long ago are gone but their creatures did not die off with their masters.

The balance of good and evil has to be maintained.A supernatural orphan, Sharon, and her faithful pitbull dog, Lieutenant Twinkleton, catch the attention of Queen Ana when she goes to fulfill her part of the decree. Unsure of the little orphan child’s abilities, she gives special orders to the little girl’s only toy: a teddy bear named Sir Snugglestiltskin.Unknown to Queen Ana, there’s more to Sharon than what her eyes can see and these creatures are hungry to get their hands on the little girl.

Storm Watcher (The Watchers Book 2) by Lilith Saintcrow ~ Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

A disaster her visions say are triggered by Hanson, even though he’s sworn to protect her . . .

Fire Watcher (The Watchers Book 3) by Lilith Saintcrow ~ Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

“ . . . a one-of-a-kind author.”
—Romantic Times magazine on To Hell and Back

The Fire Witch

Elise Nicholson isn’t your ordinary witch. For one thing, she can light candles with a look, and she plays a mean guitar. Unfortunately, being able to call fire out of the air isn’t the most useful skill around. To top it off, she’s a Guardian of the City, and the other Guardians—her two best friends—have no time for her. They’re too busy with their Watchers, the grim, black-coated warriors sworn to protect Elise and her friends from the Dark. Lonely, skating the edge of controlling her intensified “gifts,” Elise is quickly running out of options and patience. Then the Trifero—a Talisman capable of blowing the city sky-high—lands in her lap, and everything just gets worse.

The Watcher:

Remy is the Hunter, snatching Talismans away from the Dark and struggling with the constant agony of being a Watcher. Then he’s assigned to stand guard over a smart-mouthed fire witch who not only hates Watchers, but has just found the Trifero. If the Dark catches Elise, she’ll be broken, turned into a magical weapon, and sold to the highest bidder. Not only does Remy have to get to her first and keep the Dark away, but he also must convince Elise that he means her no harm—and that’s the easy part of the job. If he pulls this one off, he just might redeem himself the way every Watcher aches to do. But if he fails, both he and Elise might be better off dead . . .

Cloud Watcher (The Watchers Book 4) by Lilith Saintcrow ~ Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

Mindhealer (The Watchers Book 5) by Lilith Saintcrow ~ Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

“In the Watchers series, Saintcrow writes stories that are almost always nonstop action from beginning to end. Her women are kick-ass strong, her men ruggedly handsome and dedicated to the women they serve. It isn’t a bad combination at all.” —CJReading

The Witch:

The attacks are brutal, leaving the victims unconscious and broken. A powerful Mindhealer might be able to piece together what’s happening to these crushed bodies and shattered minds, so Caroline Robbins is pulled away from her relatively quiet life. A Mindhealer is incredibly vulnerable to the Dark—and Caro refuses even the idea of having a Watcher. She won’t have another man die in front of her, and that’s that. Unfortunately, the Watcher she just ran into has other ideas . . .

The Watcher:

Caro, the witch Merrick rescues from the dogs of the Dark, is obnoxiously stubborn, infuriating, and seemingly determined to throw herself into every dangerous situation possible. It’s enough to drive a man insane, and definitely enough to make a Watcher frustrated. How is he supposed to protect her, especially when she insists she doesn’t need a Watcher? But Caro is going to need all of Merrick’s skill and strength sooner than anyone guesses. The attacks haven’t stopped, and the closer Caro gets to solving the mystery, the more danger she’s in. Because she’s the next victim—unless Merrick can save her. And Merrick just might die in the line of fire if Caro can’t find a way to keep her Watcher safe.

Finder (The Watchers Book 6) by Lilith Saintcrow ~ Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

He’s not the only one watching her…

For years Jorie Camden has been quietly helping her police friends pursue cold cases, and she’s paid the price over and over again, her talent for Finding stretched to the limit. Now something different is stalking the streets, taking children—something old, and foul, and Dark. The cops won’t admit there’s a problem, so what can a Lightbringer do but solve the mystery on her own?

Caleb is a Watcher of Circle Lightfall, and his mission is simple: protect the witch he’s assigned to—the witch who just happens to be able to touch him without causing agonizing pain. It’s his one shot at redemption, and it’ll take every weapon he has, plus his willingness to play dirty. Even if his witch seems to be chasing something no one can see.

Yet something Dark is indeed in their city. And now that it’s aware of pursuit, it has plans for Jorie and her talent—plans not even Caleb might be able to stop…
