Rehab Is For Witches – Available now!

2 Nov

It’s here! It’s here! I’ve been waiting for so long for this to be released, you guys don’t even know….

Raise your glass! Read this book!

Raise your glass! Read this book!

But here it is, in all its shiny, new release-y glory!

Go on, lookit that gorgeous cover!

Go on, lookit that gorgeous cover!

I am so proud to be a part of this anthology. I was privileged to be able to work again with the incomparable Miranda Stork and Elle J. Rossi, and pleased to be working with Cynthia Valero, J.A. Howell, and Tyffani Clark Kemp for the first (and not the last *wink wink*) time.

Seriously. This was me all the time working and plotting with these ladies. They’re AWESOME.

The end result was something truly amazing. A great book with great characters, each of them with a story to tell. And my goodness, the stories they have to share. Witches, mayhem, drama, snark and creative spells, zombie whispering, some demon-type guy that’s REALLY attached to his pen, a cookie jar, and sly references to Shakespeare, Harry Potter, and Hanson. What more could you ask for? How about exploding man parts, hunky Scandinavian dudes, designer shoes, and an all-around good time? Well, we’ve got you covered.

Writing “A Trunk Full of Peril” was an incredible labor of love and feels. Circe and Hadrian mean so much to me, and I hope that if you pick up our book, they will give you as many feels as they gave me. Because they gave me a lot. Forcefully, I might add.

In short….here’s the blurb. Here’s the link. You know what to do. Allons-y!

In case you didn't know.

In case you didn’t know.

Welcome to Little Raven: an unsullied, beautiful woodland hamlet in the heart of the Midwest.

The sort of place where furry creatures romp about and spend their days bursting into song.

Actually, that’s a giant pack of lies.

Little Raven is a town…for witches.

And some of those witches might have bent the rules. A teensy bit. When six magical miscreants dabble with black magic, they end up together at Incantations, the town’s rehab center for witches gone awry. It’s a slap on the wrist for naughty witches. Pretty much a daycare center so they don’t wander off and start turning people into newts on a whim. Each witch must work through her addiction to black magic, and follow the tenets designed to lead them back to the path of the straight and narrow, as boring as that sounds. Even if following the tenets sucks worse than a group round of kum-bay-ya. Which sucks. Horribly.

We will admit we are powerless over magic—that our lives have become unmanageable.

We will make a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of the Goddess as we understand Her.

We will make a searching and fearless moral and magical inventory of ourselves.

We will admit to the Goddess, to ourselves, and to another being the exact nature of our magical wrongs.

We will make a list of all persons or beings we have harmed, and become willing to make amends to them all.

We will make direct amends to such beings whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

We are entirely ready to bow before the Goddess and have Her remove all our defect of character, even at the risk of being entirely stripped of our magic.

But this is just the start. There’s something rotten in Little Raven, something that seeks to take all the magic it can, and devour the inhabitants in the process. It will take the strength and power of all the witches to defeat the darkness seeping into their town, beat it back, and be rid of it forever…and maybe just make it through rehab while they’re saving the world.

“The Power Couple” by Tyffani Clark Kemp Release Day!

11 Sep
The Power Couple
The Without Rules Series #3
By Tyffani Clark Kemp
Publication Date: September 11th, 2014
Published by: SideStreet Cookie Publishing
After the loss of her husband and her preterm baby, Mariss Red is finally starting to put her life back together. She’s in a semi-stable relationship and her publishing business is doing well. None of that can fill the hole in her heart, but she’s a survivor. Her newest obstacle? Maneuvering the hazy boundaries of an open relationship with a man who can’t be bound by rules.
Sebastian Boa, The Man Without Rules, struggles to live an honorable life. Mariss meets and approves any woman he happens to bring home and things are going well, aside from the occasional miscommunication. It’s bound to happen, since he’s never been in a steady relationship before. But he knows Mariss is keeping something from him, and he knows it’s probably another man.
A trip to Paris is meant to be a romantic break for the strange couple, but it ends up in disaster when Sebastian catches Mariss with her secret lover. Add a crazed fangirl trying to seduce Sebastian, a man who has found that rules just might work for him after all. If it means he keeps Mariss in his life. It seems The Power Couple may never catch a break.

Interview with Author Tyffani Clark Kemp!

1 Aug

I am so pleased to have Tyffani Clark Kemp here on The Tarasphere today! A fabulous author and friend, she’s got a new release that I’m sure you’ve seen floating about the intarwebs. So take a moment and settle in, we’re gonna sit down and get to know a little more about this great writer. Links to the goods will be provided at the end. You’ll want to stick around for those.

On to the interview!!! ALLONS-Y!!!

In case you didn't know.

In case you didn’t know.

What was your favorite part of Shaggy Maggie?  There’s a scene where Magda catches Harvey skinny dipping with his girlfriend. She tries to steal his clothes, but being the clumsy thing that she is, she slips and falls. Harvey rushes over to make sure she’s okay, but, of course, he’s naked and Magda stares up at his “business,” complete with Prince Albert piercing. “Merry Feckin’ Christmas to her.”

What do you wish was different about the book?  I’m actually pretty insecure about this one. As much as I loved the story, I felt like it wasn’t my strongest piece. It’s shorted than what I’m used to writing, so maybe that’s why I’m a little worried about it? I’m not sure what I would have changed persay. I just felt it needed…more. Everyone who has read it has loved it though. So it’s probably just me being a diva author. lol

Who are your favorite authors? Favorite books?  Oh, I have so many favorites and they are all across the board. Ted Dekker, Lori Wick, Tara Wood (yes, you), J. A. Howell, Miranda Stork…I could go on all day. Patricia Briggs. I LOVE her Mercy Thompson series. Phantom of the Opera is one of my favorite books. The Princes, by Lori Wick.

How strict are you with plotting? Do you outline or go where the story takes you?   I usually just go where the story takes me, but lately I’ve taken to needing to plot. I’ve been having trouble getting my thoughts under control so I have to write out a timeline to make sure I’ve got everything I want in the story.

What is your writing routine?   Do it whenever I can.  I don’t really have much of a routine. I just do it.

Which comes first? The character’s story or the idea for the novel?  Usually the idea. The character’s story comes as I write.

I’m already in love with Harvey and Magda, you know that. Any more books with these characters in the future?  YES! I have three more planned. Want to know the names? Beckman’s Bane, CaitaLynn’s Curse, and Lender’s Lament.  Magda and Harvey will be in the background of these stories, but they’ll be there, causing trouble and getting hurt. LOL. I can’t say when these will be available, but Beckman’s Bane will hopefully be ready next year. And there will *hopefully* be a surprised to go with them. All I’m saying is, the series title is The Shaggy Maggie Band. 

What project(s) are you working on now?  Right now I’m getting my erotica novel The Man Without Rules ready to format and print. Sebastian Boa will have you begging for more. I can guarantee it. I’m also trying to get Hunted ready to go in October. It’s the sequel to my vampire novel, Scorned.

What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?   I was told that my characters in Scorned weren’t well developed in a review. It wasn’t even a bad review, but I thought I did a pretty good job. LOL. The best compliment was at ConCarolina’s this year. Allen Wold, a prominent science fiction writer raved about Scorned and bought a copy. He had me sign it and said he was going to put it in his “to be read pile” by his bed. I think that will forever be a defining moment in my career as a writer.

If you could have dinner with three people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?   David Gandy, because I have an obsession with his face. LOL. Chris Hemsworth, because I want to ask him to be Gabe when we make the Beast Within movie. And C.S. Lewis. I just want to talk books with him.

David Gandy, people. Because I also have an obsession with his face. UGH.

David Gandy, people. Because I also have an obsession with his face. UGH.

Now the fun questions:

Favorite junk food?   Sour Punch straws and chocolate. Together. Seriously. You need to try it.

Tea or coffee?  I’m not a huge fan of either. But I’ll probably take coffee over tea.

Favorite superhero(ine)? Why?   Superman. Because he’s super. =)

Favorite color?  Purple

Favorite place you’ve visited?  Washington State. I went for a wedding. I went to Forks. It sucks. Seattle was everything I hoped, though.

What’s one quirky or fun fact about you?   My knees go backwards.

All I have to say about Shaggy Maggie is that this book is on my TBR list. So steel yourselves, people. When I read it, there will be a review. In the meantime, here’s the fab cover and blurb. Click on it to get your very own copy.

Shaggymaggieebook

Harvey Young, rock star lead of the Scottish band Shaggy Maggie, has dreamed his whole life about the red-haired girl from the school bus that he bullied until she ran away. He’s resigned himself to groupie fill-ins. There’s no way he’ll ever see her again. Why torture himself pining for his lost youth?

Magda Canady may be on the unlucky side, but her life is starting to work itself out. She’s an editor for a New York Publishing company and her long-time lawyer boyfriend is taking her home to Scotland to meet the parents and his younger brother. But the trip holds more danger than she could have imagined. Between a psycho stalker and the boy who tortured her through high school, she might lose her mind – and her life – before it’s all said and done.

When a chance encounter brings them together once more, it’s the past, the present, and a little psychosis that may get in the way of the future that was always meant to be.

It’s Christmas, er….Kiltmas in July!!!

25 Jul

Yep. You read that right. “Kiltmas” in July! What does that mean, you ask? Well, let me tell you. Two fabulous new releases from two great authors featuring hot at Hades Scotsmen…with kilts. Really, I don’t see a downside here. Seriously, kilts.

Tell us more, James. We're fascinated.

Tell us more, James. We’re fascinated.

First up is “Possess My Heart” from J.A. Howell. After having read the first two books in this series, I can tell you that I have been dying for this one. Do yourself a favor and start reading Howell’s work today. Great characters and great fun.

“You can’t leave me because I’ll only ever love you.”
What was supposed to be a final goodbye turned into one last piece of unfinished business for Brody Walsh.
 As long as Aggie Walker’s heart still belongs to him, he’s destined to remain in limbo, watching over her.
But when her family decides to send her to Scotland for the summer and she meets Camden MacTavish, it seems despite their constant head-butting that there may be something more between them.
That is, if she is willing to let Camden in.
As Aggie finds herself torn between her lover lost and her lover anew, it becomes clear that she cannot hold on to both. If she decides to let Camden into her heart, she will have to let Brody go. And if she can’t let Brody go, she risks losing Camden-and a second chance at love.
Forever.

BUT WAIT!!! THERE’S MORE KILTS!
Yes, Michael, I know this feeling.

Yes, Michael, I know this feeling.

And next, but certainly not least, is another one I’ve been foaming at the mouth for. “Shaggy Maggie” from Tyffani Clark Kemp has had me in a perpetual state of want from day one. Kemp has several books out, and a few more on the near horizon, so I would get started reading if I were you.
