**Double Dual Blog Tour**

Author Megan S. Johnston and I (C.S. Dorsey) are hosting a double blog tour for our books, Transition, The Chimera Hunters Series & The Unsacred Gift. The tour will start August 17 to August 31 (no weekend post). If you would like to sign up to host a interview, excerpt, review, or giveaway click the link below. 




The Chimera a race so old, the humans relegated them as a myth. The Gods feared the Chimeras’ powers; they believed they were a deadly race, with physical abilities beyond belief. So, they split their race in half condemning them to wander the earth, searching for their other half to be complete. Without their sodalis, each was destined to live life without dreams, without love, without hope. The future rested on finding their one true mate for life.

SHELBY O’NEILhas led a solitary life with her parents. So when she goes to school at Washington State University, she believes her life has just begun. Now in her second year, the dreams begin. She dreams with the same man, night after night for months. When her dream world becomes her reality, and her life becomes a danger zone, she quickly learns to trust the one man who has thrown her into this new and dangerous world.

DEVELON COLEis Chimera and his race has been on earth as long as humans. His people are desperate to find their one true mate for life, and Develon has just found his, in the small college town of Pullman Washington. His goal is to protect her against the hunter’s and guide her into who she was always destined to be, his sodalis, his mate.



Have you ever had a dream that came to life? How about losing the one you love and not being able to save them? What about a gift that you were cursed with? Well image having all three like Sicily "Sissy" Monroe.

"Some might say what I have is a gift. I say, I want to return it." Sissy declares.

Sicily "Sissy" Monroe has all the qualities of a perfect young lady. She is almost where she wants to be in life. But lying deep in the pupil of her eyes hold something that she cannot get rid of which interferes with her plans. She fights everyday with no one but herself. After having her first vision at age six of her sister's (Misty) disappearance and the dreams of failing to save her, Sissy wants no part in another person's fate. For years Sissy tried hard to avoid contact with people because she feared foreseeing their death. In keeping with this, she tries to stay away from her family. Little did Sissy know she could not run from her past, or her gift. She hopes someone will put her out of her misery, but she will soon discover that her visions and dreams were just a mere image of herself.

Doxology by Brain Holers



After a lifetime of abuse and loss—from fights with other boys staged for his father’s entertainment, to the death of his only son—sixty-one year old Vernon Davidson is angry. He’s ready to get back at God, his paper mill coworkers, and everyone else in his north Louisiana town. Constantly drunk to numb his pain, the normally cautious Vernon spirals into recklessness; drinking on the job, facing down a younger man at work over a parking spot, scandalizing his former fellow Baptists with displays of his nakedness. Meanwhile Jody Davidson, Vernon’s estranged nephew, struggles to survive a similarly tragic past by self-imposed exile, inserting himself into a new, seemingly different family a thousand miles away.

The two men are reunited when Vernon agrees to retrieve Jody for his dying brother so they can say goodbye—and that’s when they each embark on a journey that will ultimately change their lives.





An arborist by day and a novelist in every moment he can steal, Brian’s head is filled with stories which can’t be contained. Be it writing, blogging or ranting to friends, his voice is passionate and compelling.

Brian’s fiction is inhabited by characters who, like people everywhere, search for resolution and connection. Characters of faith appear to show God meeting people wherever they are, whether celebrating victory or learning to live with loss. Ultimately they must, in keeping with the words of the prayer, gain the serenity to accept the things they can’t change, and the courage to change the things they can.

Raised Christian, Brian now lives in a Jewish home in Seattle, Washington with his wife and son. The family spent 2006 traveling through East Africa, Southeast Asia, Israel and New Zealand. His experiences have given Brian a lifetime of stories to tell.

~~Guest Post~~ A Job From Hell by Jayde Scott

Author Jayde Scott stopped by with a teaser of her book A Job From Hell (Ancient Legends #1). Please join me in welcoming her :)


Hidden from mortal eyes are the creatures of darkness that coexist with mortals. Seventeen year old Amber enters their world by chance when her brother slash amateur thief, Dallas, sets her up with a summer job in Scotland. Dallas has spied something in the woods he thinks could make them rich beyond their wildest dreams. But instead of finding riches, Amber unknowingly enters a paranormal race—and promptly wins the first prize—a prize that comes with no refund or exchange policy, and for which many would kill. Soon, she discovers her new boss Aidan isn’t just a hottie and he didn’t employ her for her astounding housekeeping skills either. Amber manages to draw his attention, but for all the wrong reasons.


The novel unravels a tangled and intriguing world of forbidden love, dark bonds, and danger with plenty of humour along the way. As the dark forces slowly conspire against Amber, her naivety and love for Aidan catapults her into a calamitous series of otherworldly events.



Teaser:

It’s said people can sense their imminent death. Maybe they hear death’s song in the wind. Or the earth stops turning for a second, mourning those who are yet to pass. I spotted none of the signs when I dragged my tired body through the Otherworld, waiting for the winged demon guardians to pick me up and drop me back on the threshold to the world of the living.

It was a shiny object, beckoning to me from under a bush, that lured me into the killer’s trap. As I bent down and pushed my arm into the thicket, a sharp pain pierced my skin and teeth cut into my bone. I choked on my breath, my scream barely finding its way out of my throat. Panic rose inside me, followed by a sense of dread. I was trapped. Even if the immortals heard me, they couldn’t help me.

Blinded by fear, I pulled and kicked at the snarling creature peering out of the ground, all skin and bones and red, tangled hair. She was female, no doubt, but the way she tore through skin and muscles, slurping my blood, resembled no human being. Somewhere behind me, wings fluttered.

“Get the fire demons, Octavius. Turn that thing into burned toast,” someone yelled. In spite of my panic, I smiled as I recognized Cass’s voice inside my head.

Fire engulfed us, bathing the semi-darkness in a fiery glow. The creature screeched, but didn’t let go of my aching arm. If not even Cass’s angels and demons could scare it, nothing would.

My vision blurred, my strength waning. I could feel my blood pouring out of me in a long, constant flow until I thought I was floating. From the edge of my consciousness, I realized a black, winged demon had appeared by my side. A thick flame scorched my skin. I cried out in pain, the scream hurting my ears. My eyes rolled back in their sockets. The creature hissed, the slurping continued.

Something caressed my cheeks, its touch light as a feather. My breath came shallow, and my heart slowed down in my chest. I hung onto consciousness until I realized the stabbing pain was subsiding, so I let myself fall into oblivion, eager to escape. But I gather I’m not making much sense, so I shall start from the beginning. This is how I entered Aidan’s deadly, paranormal world.



Jayde Scott is a psychology graduate and writer most notable for creating the Ancient Legends series. She lives in London with her family and is a huge fan of baking chocolate cake and listening to indie music.

~Guest Post~ Antique Charming by Natalie-Nicole Bates

I am happy to have Natalie-Nicole Bates stop by today with a guest post. Please join my in welcoming her :)



Title: Antique Charming

Author: Natalie-Nicole Bates

Genre: Paranormal Romance

The night he came home…forever.

Third-generation funeral director Lizzie Morton is about to have her dream realized. She has purchased the long abandoned Nichols Funeral Home and its upstairs flat, determined to restore the funeral home to its once former glory. But a late night visitor, Adam Nichols, claims the funeral home still belongs to his family. Lizzie scoffs at his odd behaviour and outlandish claims, but when a vintage photograph appears, she soon realizes, to her horror, that Adam Nichols did once own the funeral home—more than one hundred years ago—and now she has allowed this entity to pass into her home.


Author Bio

Natalie-Nicole Bates is a book reviewer and author.

Her passions in life include books and hockey along with Victorian and Edwardian era photography and antique poison bottles. Natalie contributes her uncharacteristic love of hockey to being born in Russia.

She currently resides in the UK where she is working on her next book and adding to her collection of 19th century post-mortem photos.


Inspiration from the Past

By Natalie Nicole Bates

Inspiration can be found anywhere. Music is a great motivator. Newspaper articles can spark an idea. Every author finds her inspiration in a different place.

I am an avid collector of Victorian, Edwardian and some Inter-War-era photography. To me, there is much beauty in these black and white stills. When I began to acquire my photos some time ago, I never thought they would inspire the idea for a story, but this is how my short story, Antique Charming, came to be.

This past spring, I found a photo online that I absolutely fell in love with. A Victorian-era photo of the outside of a funeral home with a very handsome man (most likely one of the owners) standing outside with his hands clasped in front of him. The size of a postcard, but on much thicker stock, the photo is slightly faded, but the detail is still stunning. In the reflection of the glass, you can clearly see a black funeral carriage elaborately tied with ribbons. On the back of the photo, in very elegant script, reads, Week of October-11-1896.

Although the photo was pricy, I splurged and bought it. When I finally had it in my hands, an idea came into my mind.What if a very lovely woman purchases a long abandoned funeral home, determined to restore it to its former glory. And what if this woman is visited one night by the man in the photograph? This was the genesis for Antique Charming. Since writing it, I have come up with new ideas based upon other photos in my collection.

I hope you will enjoy Antique Charming!

~~Guest Post~~ Milestone Tapes by Ashley Mackler-Paternostro

The Milestone Tapes by Ashley Mackler Paternostro


Jenna Chamberland never wanted anything more than to be a wife and mother. That is, until she realized that her life was ending after a three-year battle against breast cancer. Now, all she really wants is more time.

With 4,320 hours left to live, Jenna worries for her loved ones and what she knows awaits them on the other side: Gabe will have to make the slip from husband to widower, left alone to raise their seven-year-old daughter; Mia will be forced to cope with life without her mother by her side. In a moment of reflection, Jenna decides to record a set of audiocassettes — The Milestone Tapes – leaving her voice behind as a legacy for her daughter.

Nine years later, Mia is a precocious sixteen-year-old and her life is changing all around, all she wants is her mother. Through the tapes, Jenna’s voice returns to teach Mia the magic of life, her words showing her daughter how to spread her wings and embrace the coming challenges with humor, grace and hope.

THE MILESTONE TAPES is the journey of love between a parent and child, and of the bond that holds them when life no longer can.


I am very happy to have Ashley Mackler-Paternostro stop by with an interview. Please joy me in welcoming her.




Thanks again for being a guest on my blog. It is a honor to have you.

No ... thank you for having me! I love doing guest posts and popping into other blogs.

What inspired you to start writing?

I really love to read. I mean really love to! I have always been the sort of person who could sit down with a good book and a few hours later look up and realize how much time had passed. At my prime, I was inhaling two to three books a week. But writing was different, it wasn’t something I ever thought I could do (I’m a girl from the midwest who went to cosmetology school!) and in my world, obviously, writers were hugely important, successful people with a gift for putting their thoughts on paper.

I was 28 years old, to the day, when I decided to write. I’d just left my career in the beauty industry which, surprising, had brought much success but the passion I had for it at eighteen ebbed and eventually evaporated. At the same time, my life was totally settled. I was married, the dramas and heartaches of my early twenties were over ... I was ... peaceful, there just weren’t the same distractions there had once been. It was sort of the perfect recipe for being really reckless and wild.

I just started writing, sat down with my MacBook and told myself -- one chapter, write one chapter and then you’ll know if you can do this. So, I did. And like with reading, one chapter turned into five and five into ten ... and eventually I looked up (four months later) and I had one-hundred-thousand words and they were mine.

And now ... like with reading and writing The Milestone Tapes, I find writing is just natural. I can’t imagine how I didn’t do this sooner ... but hey, better late than never.

How did you come up with the title(s) of your book(s)?

The Milestone Tapes was easy ... I’m not even really sure if I ever consciously titled it. There was no brilliant “ah-ha!” moment.

However, I’m working on my second novel In The After, which goes to the editor ... TOMORROW!! Now that title, yes, I slaved for. The topic I was going with for my sophomore effort was fairly deep -- deeper even that the death of a parent which I tackled headlong with my first.

I live in Naperville, Illinois. Our town’s next door neighbor is Bolingbrook ... the home town of Stacy Peterson. I won’t even lie, when she went missing in the fall of 2007 on the heels of Lisa Stebic (another, less notarized woman who went missing from the same area a few months prior) I was captivated. How could this be? I wondered. These two really beautiful mother’s just gone. It was heartbreaking. I participated in the searches and watched all the coverage of the senseless, tragic story. But, like with most ideas, I had a “what if” question burning in my brain. Since I won’t be able to discuss that “what if” question openly (because doing so would be a total tell) I’ll just summarize how that title came to be.

When women get married they want it all; the happily ever after, the prince astride a white horse who isn’t only handsome but generous and loving, the five, four and door house with a perfectly painted white fence. But, what if there wasn’t a happily? What if there was only in the after? What if a women gets trapped in an abusive marriage? What if the only person she tells is her best friend? And what if that best friend is asked to make an impossible decision of her life to save her friend? Welcome to In The After.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

There is always a message.

But what I write into a book isn’t always what a reader walks away with. I hate to say “this is what you should think or do or feel because this how I see it” ... reading is such a person journey. It’s like my favorite quote says “ ... you bring to a novel, anything you read, all you know of the world. You bring your history and read it in your own terms” (Angela Carter) ... that is the message I want my readers to walk away from my novels with. I want them to find inside the pages their own messages and not ones I’ve planted in their heads because I’ve said so.


What books have influenced your life the most?

Tough question!

For me, in my little reading-world, I find that really different books inspire me in different ways. I can read a Wally Lamb novel, for the sake of conversation let’s say She’s Come Undone, and inside the prose I will uncover what pain really is and hope can really come from within us. Then, on the flip side, I can take a book like Twilight and find such whimsy in a world too perfect to exist but there is this underlying current of really understanding what love is and fighting for that.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

I would have to say David Adams (Lacuna, The Sands of Karathi) is a huge influence.

A lot of my favorite authors (Gillian Flynn, Wally Lamb, Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Wiener) don’t share my playground. They have totally and entirely different journeys to publication that I do. While I admire them, of my peers who do play in the same sandbox, I have to say David Adams sets a brilliant example. He is full of advice, support, his head in the business game is razor sharp ... but most importantly, he’s an overall good guy, which matters.

What book are you reading now?

I’m not. My time is being stretched so thin between finishing In The After and promoting The Milestone Tapes and this other little WIP I have on my screen that any free time I do have, I just want a clean break. However, as soon as In The After is out of my hands, it’s game on. I’m so excited! I have bought about fifteen books that are waiting patiently on my Kindle for some much needed undivided attention.

Do you see writing as a career?

Do I see writing as a career, yes. Is writing my career right at this moment in time? I wish.

I just had this really ironic moment this afternoon, which I think will help explain my statement above: My husband and I bought a mattress. We totally needed a new one. We paid whatever we paid for it and as we were checking out I realized ... in an entire month of selling books, I couldn’t afford to buy this bed, actually, I couldn’t afford it with all the money I earned in three months of book selling. I couldn’t afford to buy groceries. I couldn’t afford my car payment ... and forget my mortgage. Those are just the bare essentials of life. Scary thought.

I take writing incredibly seriously as if it were my one and only. I wake up extra early to write and when I get home in the evening, I spend another six hours working the business (some days it’s writing, some days it’s promotion, or collaboration on covers, formatting, editing). I work at it every single day -- birthdays, holidays, weekends, vacations. I treat writing like it how I put food on the table and gas in the car because ultimately that’s my goal ... but I’m just not there yet.


I really want to know who designed the covers to your books?

I work with an incredibly talented woman named Renu Sharma. She just has this really brilliant mind when it comes to figuring out what works for a specific book when it comes to imagery. She’ll tell you “working with the writer is important” but ha! In my wildest dreams I could never capture intellectually or explain to her with words what I want ... what she just does, she does because she can and what she comes up with is seriously the perfect doorstep to a novel ... I envy her talents in almost every way.


Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?

I guess the biggest lesson I’ve learned would be ... believe in yourself and your story. That the most important part of publishing is knowing that you’ve told the story you wanted to tell on your own terms -- beyond that, everything else is background noise. There will be people lining up to tell you “no” ... and there is no one who hands out gold-star stickers for effort. But if you can say at the end of everything, regardless of sales or reviews or viral frenzy or inked deals or none of the above, that you lived up to your expectations of yourself and did it all genuinely ... you’re doing all right.

I still remember the first time an agent rejected me after a full read -- we’re not talking a stock letter you get when your query doesn’t sing, we’re talking someone who read the book and didn’t want to take it on. I was heartbroken of course -- I think I cried for an hour and seriously doubted this whole writing/author thing. I had a moment, when I stopped with the waterworks, that I really thought about just shelving the book. I was prepared to let it die on my hard drive and it was my husband, not my foresight, that convinced me otherwise. I mean, an agent who does this for a living didn’t like it ... what chance did I have with readers? I loved The Milestone Tapes ... but this agent didn’t like the characters, and my novel is character-centric. In reviews later on readers would go on and on about how these characters resonated with them ... but I didn’t know that in the moment. All I knew was that this book meant the world to me, I’d worked so hard to get to this place ... and I’d done it all wrong.

But after some coaxing from my husband, I let that “no” go ... I ended up self publishing. Readers, the ones who matter, have responded well to my book -- not all, but some. It makes me thankful I trusted myself, my characters and my husband. When I made this confession elsewhere and a reader thanked me for me ... that was touching.

Ultimately, you have to know there is going to be self doubt ... but it’s how you deal with that self doubt, and not the doubt itself, that will define who you are as an author.

~~Guest Post~~  Asleep in Heaven's Nursery by Tommy Mann

I am happy to have Tommy Mann author of Asleep in Heaven's Nursery stop by today with a guest post. Check out his post and where to fine him and his book :)





Each issue is thoroughly addressed and given concrete scriptural and logical support. As one who has found hope picturing his lost children Asleep in Heaven's Nursery, Tommy Mann brings a powerful message of renewal and consolation.





Author Bio 


Tommy was born and raised in Orlando, Florida, and he moved to Arlington, Texas, where he received his bachelor's degree in Bible from Arlington Baptist College. While in Texas Tommy met and married his wife Alicia, and they live in South Carolina with their daughter Reagan.

While in college Tommy served as a youth pastor for three years in Grand Prairie, Texas. In January of 2008 he was called to be the pastor of students at Philippi Baptist Church in Union, South Carolina, where he is presently serving.




Have you experienced the loss of a child?


Unfortunately, 1 in 4 women will. 25% of women have been touched by child loss, and this also impacts fathers, grandparents, siblings, and other friends and family. Each tragedy has a rippling affect that leaves many people with broken hearts.

For years this has been a taboo subject; women were expected to grieve for a day and then get on with their lives. More often than not these mourning parents keep their hurts locked away, never properly grieving, while an emotional wedge is driven into their lives.

If you are among the millions of mothers who have lost a child, I want to you know that it is ok to cry, ask questions, be angry, and wonder what could have been. If you are one of these hurting fathers, I want you to know that you too can cry. You have been through a lot, and mourning is both natural and good.

And there is good news: your child is in heaven. Every life that is conceived has a soul, and once his short life is over, his soul is taken immediately to the presence of God.

In Asleep in Heaven’s Nursery the case is made to show that life begins at conception, heaven is a real place where our lost children go, and that there is an “age ofaccountability,” which is the Christian belief that young children are not accountable to choose right or wrong.

The book also addresses the delicate topic of abortion, which is not held against the child, and for which the parents can find forgiveness. The case is made that adoption is a good alternative to abortion, and it answers the questions of whether abortion is ok in the cases of rape, incest, or for the health of the mother.


The book is available at my website www.tommymannministries.com

~~Blog Tour~~ The Orphan The Soulcatcher and the Black Blizzard

Author Kimberlee Ann Bastian has stopped by my blog today with a guest post for her blog tour. Check it out!

A Case for History and a Historic Setting
By: Kimberlee Ann Bastian



I am asked frequently why I decided to place my story’s setting in the past when most current story’s in the young adult genre are set in the “now”. The answer is quite simply really, I have always had a passion for history and as a bonus; the allure of the past helped conceal the story’s mystery. I wanted my characters and setting to be genuine, reflections of a time long gone and in some cases forgotten by the younger generations. I wanted something more than another appetizer book in first person; I wanted a seven-course dinner. I wanted to create something different, something unprecedented, something that marries supernatural with real history.

In the early stages of creating The Orphan, the Soulcatcher, and the Black Blizzard, my characters went without a concrete setting for nearly three months. When thinking about today, the mythology I was building did not seem appropriate. I did not want my characters using cell phones and iPods, or have the ability to get around easily. Also, other supernatural characters in the young adult genre have been assimilated into today’s society, but I wanted to create a different sense of cultural shock for one of my main characters who has only seen the inside of a supernatural prison cell for nearly two centuries.

I love history. I love researching it, reading about it and watching movies with elements in it. I find the greatest joy in learning something new and passing it along to someone else in order for that thing or moment to live on. It is a romantic notion and like the conversation between Ben Gates and the President in National Treasure 2, people (collectively) do not think that way anymore, but they want to. I not only wanted my characters to find themselves in a unique situation, but I want my readers to find themselves in one as well. To learn not only about something factual, but that stories set in the past are just as easy to devour as any story of today.

Kimberlee’s Depression Era Check List:

Movies: O Brother, Where Art Thou, Journey of Natty Gann, Of Mice and Men, Wild Hearts Can’t be Broken, Seabiscuit, Cradle will Rock, Cinderella Man, The Wizard of Oz (though only a mere part takes place in Kansas)

Books: Irene Hunt’s No Promises in the Wind; Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephant; Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mocking Bird; John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath; Mildred D. Talyor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
