One Word Interview with James Wymore

Today we have James Wymore, author of the sci-fi/fantasy adventure The Actuator: Fractured Earth, as well as other books Welcome, James! Always nice to have a fellow sci-fi author in the writing chair.

 Alien invasion! Weapon of choice?

That would come in handy! You can be my alien invasion buddy any day.

You've been set down in your latest book. What character do you
seek out first?


I'll bet he's a tough one!  

What fictional world would you most like to live in?

That sounds exciting!

We're having a banquet in honor of your awesomeness. What are we
serving for dessert?


A popular dessert choice among interviewees. Confession: I'm not a huge cheesecake fan myself.

What historical figure would you most like to have lunch with?

Aldous or Thomas Henry? Either way, fascinating choice. Interesting men to meet for sure.

Thank you so much, James! Be sure to check out his blog and his latest release. It sounds like an exciting tale!

It's my birthday!

Today is my birthday, and the first of three in my family this week. We call it Birthday Week, and we are partying hard! (Okay, not really, but it's still fun.) And in true Hobbit fashion (since I am a Hobbit, you know), I am giving away the presents!

In celebration of Birthday Week, Ripped and Other Adventures is FREE for Kindle until Saturday, Sept. 14. Go grab it and let your friends know too. Hope you enjoy!

PS. It has already hit the top 25 on two Amazon Bestseller lists (sci-fi adventure, and short stories), so a HUGE thanks to those who've picked it up already. :)

One Word Interview with Anna Del C. Dye

Today we have the delightful Anna Del C. Dye in the writing chair. She is the author of the young adult Elfs fantasy series. Take it away, Anna!

What fictional world would you most like to live in? 
Anduriah, the world were my Elfs live.

Sounds terrific. I'd like to visit sometime.
You have been set down in the middle of your latest book! Weapon of choice?
Two stylistic short swords, worn across my back.

Those sound both beautiful and handy.

Which of your characters is most like you?
Princess Adren, the main character in “The Silent Warrior Trilogy”. She has lost all her kindred and has to be adopted by another race. I left my Country at 21 and left everything I knew behind to be adopted by another race, customs, language, and love. :)

That's lovely. :)
What historical figure would you most like to have lunch with?
King Arthur at his round table, eating roasted pork, potatoes, corn, hot bread 

Wow. Wouldn't that be something!

You are having your favorite author over for dinner. What are you serving? 
That would be J. R. R. Tolkien and we would dine in the white halls of the White City, Middle Earth: rabbit stew, hot bread and ale. 

Awesome! Can I come too?

Thanks so much for being with us today, Anna!
