Meet Claire Gem AKA Frances Susanne Brown

Posted by Susan J Berger on 2:30:00 AM with 7 comments
 Meet another dual identity author. Frances Susanne Brown is releasing her contemporary paranormal romance, Phantom Traces as Claire Gem

Claire/Frances, please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a native of New York, but have lived in Florida, Texas, North Carolina, and now in Massachusetts. My husband of 36 years is my inspiration for writing all those happy-ever-afters, and together we raised three children. Two years ago, my daughter made me a grandma. By day, I work in scientific research at Tufts University. After hours, I write.

I love firsts, so tell me about the moment when you found you’d made your first sale.
My first sale was my memoir, which I’ve been told is one of the hardest genres to sell. When I got the email from the editor of High Hill Press saying they loved my story and wanted to publish it, I danced and squealed through my tears. The memoir, Maternal Threads, is a mother-daughter story with a mystery, and will be coming out before Mother’s Day this year.

If it isn’t too nosy . . . (well of course it is!) How about the first time you kissed your true love?
Our first kiss was in my driveway in a car he borrowed, while he was wearing a pair of shoes two sizes too big! He’d come straight from work, and didn’t have clean clothes to change into, so he borrowed them – and the car – from his best friend, who later became our Best Man at the wedding.
I asked Claire/ for a picture and she sent me this.
 This one was taken of my husband and me on our first cruise when my sons were only months old...they will be 30 on April 1st.They were April's Fools babies. Twins too. 
Gorgeous picture! You look like a heroine I want to read about. Twins? Wow. I used to want twins . . . until I had my first son. 
Other than your own, who are your favorite (heroes/heroines/writers) in your genre?
My all time favorite contemporary romance author is Kristan Higgins – I love her humor and wit, and have actually been in danger of driving off the road laughing while listening to her books on audio! I also love Robyn Carr, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Susanna Kearsley.
You and I have very similar tastes. I would add Jayne Ann Krentz in all her guises to your list and Lynn Kurland. Robyn will be back on my blog this Sunday for 2 days. And Kristan was on my blog last October. I am going to look up Susanna Kearsley.

What is the most exciting moment, so far, in your writing career?
Just last week, after sending out press releases about my newly released novel, Phantom Traces, I received a phone call from a reporter in Lenoir, N.C. – that’s where the book is set. He did a phone interview and printed it on the front page of the Lenoir News Topic on Feb. 17th. Squeeee!!!
I would be squeeeing too!
What is your favorite pastime, other than writing?
I love to read (of course!) and listen to books on audio.
The paranormal enchants me, and the only two hours of TV I watch every week are when Ghost Adventures airs. (Okay, so Zak Bagans is a little hot).
And, of course, happy hour with my daughter when she visits.

What’s your snack of choice while writing?
I don’t tend to snack much, but I do love a nice glass of wine.


Any advice for new writers just starting out?1. Read every book in your chosen genre you can get your hands on. Study them like a textbook.
2. Join a critique group. There are plenty available online, and the help I got from the one I belong to was responsible for my first fiction book sale. Giving feedback teaches as much as getting it.
3. Don’t give up. You’re not a devoted writer until you can paper at least one wall of your office with rejection slips.

What genre or genres do you write?

I write contemporary romance, contemporary w/paranormal elements (I’m a sucker for a ghost story), and women’s fiction.
If you like women's fiction, try Sarah Addison Allen who writes magical realism and A gift of Ghosts by Sarah Wynde. (Bookaholic here and we seem to share similar tastes.)

Tell us about your latest release. 

Phantom Traces is romance with a ghostly twist. Set in the fictional town of Caldwell, N.C., it is the contemporary story of Abigail Stryker, a young librarian struggling to revive the antiquated and reportedly haunted Harvey Library. A pipe-smoking ghost has suddenly begun hurling books at anyone he doesn’t like, and if the haunting isn’t stopped, the library will be shut down.

Abby enlists the help of history professor Jack Wood to figure out what has stirred the spirit of the library’s founder, and why he’s still trapped within its walls after over 100 years. In so doing, they uncover a tragic, 19th century tale of love, and find one of their own.

Trailer here: http://bit.ly/1EIj4IY Great trailer. I am so intrigued
What’s your current WIP?
I’m presently working on another contemporary romance/ghost story called “Electricity.” It takes place in an abandoned mental asylum. The hero and heroine work with a team of electricians who are refurbishing the building, until strange occurrences derail their plans – and of course, throw them into each other’s arms.

Meet Ryan Jo Summers

Posted by Susan J Berger on 3:00:00 AM with 5 comments
Ryan Jo Summers wrote a book involving time travel called Shimmers of Stardust. I loved it and wanted to know more about her. Ryan Jo, please tell us a little about yourself. 
I am a native Michigander but have lived in North Carolina for the past eleven years. It is a good feeling to have the sense I am where I am supposed to be, doing what I am doing, even if it’s not always easy or clear why. I lead a quiet life, with my pets in a house I recently bought. Kind of still excited at having my own ‘mine’ house. So my days revolve around painting the house, my day job, working on writing and all the writing stuff that goes along with being published.  Seems there is always something that needs to be done. When I am not working on writing, working at work or working on the house, I hang out with my pets, my friends, the local National Forest or the local grocery store. If my Jeep were a horse, it would know the way by heart from home to work to the stores and home again. I could just go to sleep and wake up at the next destination.

I love firsts, so tell me about the moment when you found you’d made your first sale.  
It was years ago, for a short story I had submitted to a devotional journal. I got a contract and letter in the mail. I was shaking as I read the letter, telling me they liked my essay and it was slated for the April edition. Later I got a free copy of the journal and a $25 check. Wow….published. I was so high in the clouds for days after that. My first novel was in 2012 for Whispers in Her Heart. The email literally came out of the blue, with a contract and some official documents. Again, I was soaring for weeks, but a little more wary this time. I was too scared to say anything to others until I knew there was no turning back on this adventure.

If it isn’t too nosy . . . (well of course it is!) How about the first time you kissed your true love?  
My first true love? Well, he stood sixty inches high at his shoulders, had reddish brown hair with glossy black highlights and the deepest, darkest brown eyes you have ever seen. His nose was long but well shaped. I was a little nervous standing there, next to him, eyeball to eyeball. I was about 29. I’d waited 22 years for this moment. He was 16, his name was Sundancer and he was my horse. Having had a horse infatuation since I was a child, I could not wait to get my own horse. He was the first of four to come, special to my heart and I loved everything about him. Our long and loving relationship ended sadly and he has since passed on to the great pasture in the sky. My other true love is still with me. We sing and dance and have our disagreements. Our kisses are more like pecks, with the kissy smacky sound. He is Taz, my blue and gold Macaw. His beak is as big as my fist when I curl it up, his tongue is soft and dry. He preens me, with his tongue tickling my face, cheeks, ear and lips. Never mind he has enough pressure in that beak to rip my face to shreds in miliseconds, I know he won’t. When Taz is bored, he’ll ask me for a kiss and lean in to me, eyes open of course, (both of us) and make the kissy sound as we touch. Sometimes when he’s feeling froggy, he tries a French kiss, which is taboo in my book.
I love that story. Thank you.  

Other than your own, who are your favorite (heroes/heroines/writers) in your genre? 
I like Linda Lael Miller and her time travels. Maggie Shayne for her suspense and paranormal. I like Nora Roberts for her Irish family stories. I’d have to add Sara Gruen and Constance O’Day Flannery. I don’t write true westerns but I like Max Brand and Zane Grey.
I thought your Western details were great.

What is the most exciting moment, so far, in your writing career? 
This was a cool moment, a week ago, when I rang up my accountant to make an appointment. The receptionist took my name and immediately said, “I just read something about you in the paper last week.” It’s always a thrill when people I work with—a couple hundred— will pass by me and say “I read your latest story in {free lance periodical I contribute to}. It was great.”  With comments like that, I know I am on the right track.

What is your favorite pastime, other than writing?   
I need the solitude of getting to the forest, chilling out by the river. I like to paint ceramics or acrylic on canvas. I dabble in some poetry. I love to cook and bake, trying new things. And reading of course. Books, magazines, word find puzzles, trade journals, you name it.

What’s your snack of choice while writing?  
Coffee. Chocolate. I am not much of a snacker when writing. I don’t keep food on my desk, just a cup of coffee. Mainly, it is so the cats don’t get up there and knock the goodies to the floor. My mug is in a protected corner. But for snacks in general, I like nuts, salty chips, and all things chocolate.

Got a recipe you want to share?  I love my crock pots—yes two of them, one is almost constantly in use. And I love trying new recipes in them. Below is one I ran across recently and will be trying probably later in the week. Perfect for when I get  home from work late at night.
Ravioli Lasagna 
1-      28 oz. can crushed tomatoes  ½ C cream (35%)  ½ C milk   2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. Italian sausage, casings removed   1 package sliced mushrooms
1 large package fresh or refrigerated ravioli and 1 C grated mozzarella cheese
1—In large bowl, stir and blend tomatoes, cream, milk and garlic
2-  Line bottom and sides of slow cooker with aluminum foil. Spread a quarter of tomato mixture on bottom. Crumble a third of sausage meat over sauce, then a third of mushrooms.
3—Arrange a third of ravioli in an even layer over mushrooms. Repeat with remaining  tomato sauce, sausage, mushrooms and ravioli, ending with  sauce. Sprinkle with cheese.
4—Cover and cook LOW 6 to 8 hours. Remove lid and let stand 10 minutes.

Sounds easy and pretty good. Can’t wait! I am so hungry, reading this.

 Any advice for new writers just starting out?  Never let go of your dreams. Others may try to destroy your dreams and hopes, don’t let them. No one—not family, friends, editors and agents—can determine your value or talent. You alone are responsible for that. For every success story, there lies dozens of nay-sayers and haters behind them that they had to overcome.

What genre or genres do you write? 
Like my taste in reading, which is across the board, so is my writing. I prefer romance. It feels like the niche I should stay in. I aspire to become known for well written Christian romance. For that I am so grateful for Stardust. I also like romance with a few twists. Paranormal, mystery, time travel, shape shifting, suspense, I love it all. Toss them all into a blender and see what comes out. That was my debut novel in 2013, a real recipe of stuff. But Christian is where my heart is. I also went out on a limb and wrote a YA/NA which is currently making the rounds to agents. I don’t see it now as a career, but I am open to seeing what this book could do. Years ago I was inspired to write what became, after my insolent complaints, a non-fiction inspirational novella.  I grew a lot while writing and re-writing that book. It too is making the agent rounds. Again, I don’t see a future in non-fiction, but I would like to be open to writing them. I also write and contribute essays and short pieces to two regional periodicals so that helps me work with deadlines and measured word limitations. The exposure is pretty cool too. But romance is home to me.

Tell us about your latest release.  I had twins this past fall. September was the release of my Christian/ time travel story SHIMMERS OF STARDUST.
Blurb: 
    Civil War hero turned renegade, Logan Riley, is hanged by the law in 1869. His story should have ended there. Except Anthropologist Dr. McKenzie Lynne is hired by a team of physicists, protected by the military, to find a missing link to their time travel theories. She finds Logan, in the back on a cave, buried in glittering gold dust, very much alive. And very handsome. Taking him to the base camp, she learns what they really want him for. Horrified, she reacts, grabbing his hand and making a run for it.
Now pursued by the military and the obsessed physicists who will stop at nothing to get their living treasure back, Kenzie and Logan must fight to stay alive and stay hidden. Covering distances in the deserts and mountains of New Mexico and Arizona, each moment is a challenge to stay alive and stay safe.
Meanwhile. Kenzie's strong Christian faith works on Logan's bad-boy heart, convicting him of his lawless past. With Kenzie's help, he tries to allow the grace of God into his life while fighting to preserve both of theirs. Staying free means a lifetime on the run, but getting captured means a lot worse.
Undeniable affections bloom between them as tense moments turn into longer periods of growing love. Can their newly formed love survive the coming showdown between the military closing in, Kenzie's Christian morals and Logan's nineteenth century code of justice?
I hope this one will pave the way for future Christian novels. The time travel element was fun because the possibility is a natural conflict to the core of Christian beliefs. It makes you have to look inside yourself and examine what do I really think?  No matter one’s beliefs, the story is a good one, without preaching and leaves the reader free to just enjoy the tale.  Yes, It's an engaging story. I don't normally read Christian romance, but this was good without being preachy.
November was the release of WHEN CLOUDS GATHER. Compared to the other ones, this is a tame book. It is more graphic and heightened as far as suspense and story line and scenes, but it’s just a suspenseful romance story. No blended elements. No paranormal, no Christian, no crazy stuff. Just romance with who-dun-it mystery and who-is-next suspense.  Like I said, tame for me.
Blurb: Darby Adams has a happy life operating a Bed & Breakfast Inn at quiet Driftwood Shores, raising her son and caring for a menagerie of stray pets. Until she finds a dead guest in one of her rooms--murdered. Suddenly her home and business is turned into a crime scene and she is the number one suspect. Caught in a whirlwind, she needs a strong friend.
The surviving family wants justice so they hire new-in-town Sam Golden, Private Investigator, to find the facts and have Darby put away for good. Sam begins his case in a dual role, acting as a friend for Darby. Strong feelings unexpectedly and mutually develop, as strange, scary, things happen around the B & B. Sam has to rethink his original opinions on Darby's guilt or innocence. Darby has to consider the future of her business and the future lives of herself and her son. Attraction to Sam only complicates her already overwhelming life.
Then the day comes Sam is forced to tell Darby the truth about his job, pulling them apart. A new threat rises, forcing Darby to turn to Sam one more time. She has to trust him to survive this challenge, but can she trust him with her heart?

What’s your current WIP?  Two, which are both vying for my attention. One is a trilogy of three sisters, each wild and free of heart, set in the North Carolina coast, finding the unlikely love of their lives. It was neat to take my mental happy place, fill it will people and make it a real town on paper. So I still go to my happy place, except now the sisters and their adventures fill my mind.  I am now into the story of the third and youngest sister. The other WIP is my problem child. It will not listen to what I think it should be. The characters are all fighting for their rightful space and I have way more research then I can tie into one story. The blasted thing might be equal to War and Peace by the time I finish it. At its core, it’s another romance, but different than my others.  This is tipping its toe into quantum fiction and literary fiction. Darned if I know what this problem child is going to turn into someday. I feel your pain. I am trying to tame a recalcitrant book of my own. 

And finally, where can we find  you? 
 Hidden in the mountains of North Carolina? No, seriously, I am trying to spread myself like apple butter over social media. I maintain a blog on wordpress – http://summersrye.wordpress.com which is a more  intimate look at my life. I have guest blogs and also share bits of my personal life. It’s sort of like the main hub of the wheel. From there we have my website--- www.ryanjosummers-- which I don’t keep up as much as I should, but it’s where everything else spreads from. I also have my book trailers up there and share excerpts of the books and slices of my poetry and pictures of my fur/ feathered—kids. Next would be my author page on Facebook, Amazon, Goodreads and LinkedIn.. I have a Twitter but don’t have a good handle on it. I post on Google + and lastly, I joined the Tsu revolution and set up a new account there last month. There doesn’t seem much I don’t dabble in, but my main focus with the freshest material is the wordpress blog, Facebook and my website. Next, I’m trying to put together a newsletter—a personal goal of mine for 2015. If I can put out two a year, that are of value, I’d be happy.

Thank you for being here. Ryan Jo is offering a PDF download of both When Clouds Gather and Shimmers of Stardust.

Being Your Own Valentine

Posted by Susan J Berger on 3:00:00 AM with 31 comments
It's a day for love or a day for feeling woefully inadequate because
You haven't met your true love.
You lost your true love.
You have kids and exactly when are you going to be able to shove the dresser up against the bedroom door and celebrate properly?

Or there 's the other scenario:
We're celebrating, but is it romantic enough? I bet some else is out there doing it better.
My least favorite romantic line? "You complete me." From Jerry Maguire.
Said by a needy man who wasn't good with either words or relationships, but what the hey, Tom Cruise said it and he's pretty.
It took me a long time to believe I was worthy of love. And I finally realized that the person I most need to love me is . . . me. I needed to know I was already complete.
There are lots of people I love and lots of people who love me, including my wasband. But none of us complete each other. And that's a good thing.

This year I am my own Valentine and I plan to make a great job of it.
my Agenda:
Buy myself my favorite flowers. I deserve them.

I've made my Valentine at a Valentine party I went to. Inside, I am going to write  the ten things I love most about me.
I haven't decided on my date yet. I'm torn. Go to see Dame Edna at the Music Center and eat beforehand at the Nickel Diner and having their Smore's Cake? Buy myself Jayne Ann Krentz's latest book, Trust No One and snuggle in that night at home with Chocolate?
Hmmm. No matter which I choose, that Smore's cake is going to be part of it. I have my monthly volunteer stint with Reading to Kids at Leo Politi Elementary in the morning and The Nickle Diner is not that far away.
And, of course, I want to give something to YOU, dear readers.
I have five books for giveaway. Three of them by Susan Elizabeth Phillips,  - Breathing Room, Heaven Texas and This Heart of Mine. I am also giving away a copy of Linda Lael Miller's The Marriage Charm and Where's My Hero? Three short stories by Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn and Kinley MacGregor.

I'm also giving away a paperback copy of my book, Time and Forever. I forgot I had copies.

That's six prizes.
Leave me a comment telling me at least three good things you are going to tell yourself you love about you. Yes, you are definitely worth loving. Love on!

Cheryl Yeko back with a Sexy Valentine

Posted by Susan J Berger on 2:30:00 AM with 7 comments
Welcome back Cheryl Yeko, a multi-published, award-winning author. I interviewed last year. Here is a link to that interview.
Cheryl is also an Acquisitions Editor for Soul Mate Publishing. As an Editor, she welcomes Romantic Suspense, Paranormal, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, and Erotica. She's back to tell us about her latest releases.
Hi! Thank you for having me here today.
Cheryl, I have some Valentines Day related questions for you:
If you could go anywhere, or anywhen (I grant you the gift of the time machine in The Castle) What would be your idea of the Perfect Valentine's Day?  
I'd like to go back in time to my honeymoon. My husband took me to London and I loved it! We always said we would go back, but we never have...{sigh}

What's the most romantic book you ever read beside your own? 
Wow, that is a hard question, because I read tons of books! A Christy Reece novel usually does it for me, and if I had to choose, I would say, Rescue Me. But, all her books are awesome.
Excellent. A new author for me to check out.
Best movie to watch on Valentine's Day if you don't have a date? Honestly, I love action/romance movies...date or no date. The most romantic movie, imo, was Speed with Keanu Reeves. When he stays on that train, facing death so Sandra Bullock wasn't alone, OMG...be still my heartSmile Those are the kind of heroes I strive to write!


You have new releases.

Yes.  MY SEXY VALENTINE, SOUL MATE COLLECTION 1, a collection of steamy little stories of which I am both the Editor, and also have a story in the collection, titled Valentines Day Breakup. I had great fun working with all the talented authors for this awesome collection!This is an ongoing anthology, so look for Soul Mate Collection 2, in 2016.
Valentine’s Day Breakup Blurb-Finding her fiancĂ© in a clutch with the coat check girl sends Shelly straight into the arms of her Soul Mate.
Here is a short excerpt, where our hero, Dean, steps into the bar and sees our heroine, Shelly, for the first time (after she’s ended her engagement with her cheating fiancĂ©):

     Intrigued, Dean stepped up to the spot next to her and requested a Hacker-Pschorr. The woman was leaning over her drink, her thick blond hair flowing forward, obscuring his view of her features. Bob, the bartender, came back with his Weiss beer. Dean tossed a wad of money on the bar, starting a tab.
     Returning his gaze to the woman, he picked up the bottle and waited for her to notice him. But she seemed to be deep in thought, twirling her straw in her drink, before taking a long sip. He frowned when he thought he heard a sniffle. Was she crying? The last thing he wanted was to get caught up in the drama of a crying woman. Had her boyfriend stood her up on their Valentine’s date? His interest waned. Whatever the reason, he didn’t take advantage of vulnerable women, so she was off-limits.
     But before he could turn away, she lifted her head and looked at him, and he froze. Well, everything froze except his cock, which in a millisecond grew hard as iron as he looked upon pure sensual perfection. She was an angel, with delicate features and a perfect oval face, her cute nose slightly tipped up and full, rosy lips that begged for his kiss. He set his jaw and managed to keep his hands, and his lips, to himself.
     Dean stared into her soft green eyes, the shade of freshly mown grass, glistening with unshed tears. His feet refused to move. An overwhelming urge to gather her into his arms and hold and comfort her swept through him.
     Turn your ass around and get the hell out of here, his I-don’t-have-time-for-this-shit internal voice insisted. Then she sniffed again, and one lone tear slid down her right cheek and gutted him.
     “Hello-o,” she said, then blinked like an owl, before turning back to her drink and taking another long sip through the straw, once again obscuring his view to her lovely face.
     That was when he realized his angel was tipsy. He frowned. She wasn’t his angel and he should just turn around and walk away. But he didn’t. Against his better judgment, and with a feeling of possession that was totally out of line, he stepped closer and asked as gently as he could, so as not to scare her, “Why the tears, angel?”
Sounds wonderful!


EYES OF A HERO, is my second new release, and Book 2 in my Hero Series. The first novel in the Hero Series is, MOUNTAIN HERO, which took first place in the 2014 International Digital Awards, in the novella category...how cool is that?
Very cool!
Blurb For Eyes Of A Hero:
Stumbling across a murder and getting chased off a cliff makes for one heck of a bad day. But when a handsome blue-eyed hero comes to Darcy's rescue, things begin to look up.
The last thing Randy expected when he made the hike up the bluff was to rescue a beautiful woman hanging off a cliff ledge. He soon learns that he's her only protection against powerful forces that want her silenced.
I love that blurb.
Here’s an Excerpt – Enjoy!

     “How’d you end up on the ledge?” Randy's gaze scoured the area for anything to help him retrieve her.
     “I—I was running from some me—”she hiccupped on a sob“—men.”
     A sense of unease rushed through him, and his eyes narrowed as he did another search of the area, looking for danger this time.
     “How many men?” he barked, his voice low and threatening at the thought of a group of men chasing a woman off a cliff. Were they still around? His hands curled into tight fists, itching to get his hands on the bastards.
     “I think they left.” A soft sniffle sounded. “But they . . . they killed a man.”
     What the hell? Keeping alert to any approaching danger, He knelt back down to speak with her. “What happened?”
     “I—” Another frightened squeak came from her as more loosened stones tumbled into the water.
     Shit! He had to get her off that damn ledge.
     “Darcy,” he said urgently, “don’t move.” He wished like hell he could see her, because he had no idea how much time she might have before the rock underneath her totally gave away. The afternoon sun was blasting, and sweat slid down his back, under his shirt.
     There was a long tense moment until the pebbles finally stopped falling. Her panicked gasp cranked up his urgency to get to her, filling him with a sense of impotence at his total uselessness. He needed to think of something, fast! As an avid outdoorsman, there had to be something here he could use.
     “Randy,” her soft voice called up to him.
     “Yeah, darlin’,” he said gently.
     “If I don’t make it—”
     “You’ll make it,” he snapped, standing, his body tense. He wouldn’t even entertain the thought that she’d die. He’d never be able to live with the guilt for allowing it to happen.
     Ignoring him, she continued, “Please tell my family I love them . . . okay?”
     The muscles in his shoulders tensed into hard knots, his mind working feverously. “You’re gonna tell them yourself, Darcy. Just as soon as I get you up from there.”
     “How’re you going to do that?” The resignation in her voice indicated she didn’t believe he could save her.
     Like hell . . . He set his jaw in determination.
     “I’ve got a hiking kit back at my campsite. I’m going to get it, I’ll be right back.”
     “You—you’re leaving?” Panic laced her voice.
     “I’ll only be gone five minutes.”
     She didn’t answer.
     “Darcy?” he repeated, kneeling back down to peer over the edge. “I promise, I’ll be back for you.” Damn, he wished he could see her face, so she’d know he meant every word he said.
     “Okay,” she responded quietly, though he could hear the tears in her voice.
The tinkling of small pebbles rolling down the cliff told him to get his ass moving. She needed off that ledge, before it was too late.
     He just wasn’t quite sure how the hell he was going to accomplish that.
