Vol. #28: Showcasing (3) More Awesome Gang Authors!!

Hello Everyone!

Is your Friday flowing well for you so far this afternoon? Do you have any plans for the weekend? I plan on spending time with friends having dinner this weekend. As I have said quite a few times before, I thank you for checking out my 16-year-old son John’s “Call To Action Marketing” business (hashtag #CTAMarketing). This post is intended to share even more work of some independent authors, such as myself, and earn some good karma in the process. Why not offer you a taste of a variety of authors with different content? Let me know if you have discovered a new author during this “Showcased Author Series”? My objective is to pick out different authors that offer a variety of media content. For the record, I know nothing about the author other than what is showcased in the author article that was shared, via Awesome Gang. Feel free to copy and paste and share this content on your blog, if you like. As an author, if you want to add more information, drop it down in the comment section below and I will edit and add at my earliest convenience. For now, I’m connecting with the authors in an effort to build my author network. Hopefully, they will follow me back on social media. I’m game to cross promote each other on social media as well. Just let me know or re-tweet one of my posts and I will automatically return the favor on Twitter. I’m totally cool with many ways to help each other market each other. When you are a small content creator, it is important to help others out. I’m even submitted #ConstructionTales to both Awesome Gang and Book Reader Magazine recently. When I’m ready to release my children’s book Not All Girls Play With Dolls on Amazon, I shall submit again at that time. My first children’s book #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls is to empower young kids to pursue their passions even if it is not normally the tradition in their society. Do you have any requests for a specific author or style of content? Let me know your various suggestions down the in the comment section below. For now, here are (3) showcased authors down below:

Showcased Author- 1.) Zerry Greenwood

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My husband and I raised seven, yes, I said seven, children on a cattle ranch in west-central Idaho. After eight blissful years of public school, we lost our minds and decided to homeschool them ALL! We survived with all our limbs intact, but we now own the east wing of St. Alphonsus Hospital. Seven active children left to run wild in the Rocky Mountains. What were we thinking?

I came by my insanity honestly. I am number eight of nine children. My parents’ insanity led them to name us Jerry, Terry, Sherry, Merry, Kerry, Cherry, Perry, Zerry, and Berry… all our middle names start with an L.

Welcome to my loud, crazy, wonderful life.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The Replacement Order
The book wrote itself, I sat down to write a comedy, but this book of pain and struggle came out.

What authors, or books have influenced you?
Every book I ever read inspires me.

What are you working on now?
A comedy in this same series, called Unsolicited Mail. Miriam Tanner is not the brightest crayon in the box, but she will light up the streets of Idaho City. Her sights are set on Colton Fuller, the uptight manager of the local haberdashery, whose only desire is to take her snipe hunting and go back to his quiet life. Will Mariam secure herself a husband or find herself frozen in a snowbank.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Facebook

Do you have any advice for new authors?
Just keep writing.

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Never go to bed angry, settle your life daily.

What are you reading now?
Editing.

What’s next for you as a writer?
Editing and writing a new series called Reasons Two. A series of second chances at romance.

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?

Showcased Author- 2.) Jane O’Roarke

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written six books – Four in my Men of Honor Series and Three in a new Sci-Fi/Fantasy Series that releases in Spring 2022.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Controlling the Game – I just loved this book. It’s about some of the younger members in my series, and their love of computer gaming. Sophie, the heroine is kick-ass in both her gaming life and also as a data nerd! She goes for a wild weekend in Vegas and comes home to a few surprises!

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t think so – but then, they wouldn’t be unusual to me, right? I can’t spell – and I don’t see grammatical mistakes – so that’s a big problem for me. I write really fast – but have to spend a lot of time editing before it even goes to the editors!

What authors, or books have influenced you?
I loooove Julie Garwood and Jude Deveraux, Suzanne Brockmann, Cherry Adair, Emma Holly, Sarah J Mass, Karen Marie Moning – more recently – I like L.J. Shen, Brittney Sahin – I’m all over the place. I like most genre fiction. I’ve been reading a really long time! LOL

What are you working on now?
I am working on the edits for my Eve of Fae Series which will have three books releasing back to back starting in March 2022.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I really like BookFunnel – and Goodreads.

Do you have any advice for new authors?
Stick with it and tell the story that you want to tell! You will hear a lot about writing for the market – but if you like your characters and enjoy your story – then I’m sure there is someone else (or many someones!) that will also like it!

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Get thick skin and don’t take reviews personally. It’s hard – but you just have to push through and keep writing.

What are you reading now?
I just finished L.J. Shen’s new book, and also Shannon McKenna’s series. I was thinking of reading a new book (to me) of Ilona Andrews.

What’s next for you as a writer?
I’m excited about switching over to Sci-Fi/Fantasy for awhile – but then I have to get back and write Nico and Drago’s story!

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Anything by Jude Deveraux, Julie Garwood, Suzanne Brockmann and Linda Howard – the Grand Dames of Romance for me!

Verbally Disastrous Podcast! S#2, Ep. #48: Part B- Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools on YouTube:

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
