Write Club Featuring DL Hammond and Note

Note: Today my upcoming novella Sacrifice HER is featured over at Crystal Collier's blog. Click here to have a look see. Thanks Crystal!

Hi readers I'm glad to have DL Hammond over today to discuss Write Club and I hope both participants and those interested in doing so after reading this post remember that this is the last week for submissions. Take it away DL!

First off, I’d like to thank Sheena-Kay for the opportunity to talk to you today about something near and dear to my heart…WRiTE CLUB. My modest writing contest has proven so popular that the DFW Writers Conference is now considering incorporating it into their agenda for 2015. 
For the newbies out there, let me explain what WRiTE CLUB is? It’s a modest writing competition whose inspiration was derived from the movie FIGHT CLUB. There are numerous versions of this concept around the internet, but nothing like we do it. Its essence embodies simple, good-natured competition, with lots and lots of fun sprinkled on top.

The Luthier's Apprentice Blog Tour Interview and a Personal Note

The Luthier's Apprentice Blog Tour Interview

Today I have posted an interview with Maria Calvani. This blog tour is hosted by Blog Tours By Elana. Maria is the author of The Luthier's Apprentice.

Q&A with Mayra Calvani, author of The Luthier’s Apprentice
Can you tell us a little about yourself and how long you’ve been writing? I’ve been writing and creating worlds for most of my life, since I was about 12. In secondary school I wrote stories and plays. At 16, I wrote a romance novel which was secretly passed around in class. By 20, writing was already a passion, an obsession. I saw myself doing no other thing than becoming an author. I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, but later moved to the US, where I completed a degree in Creative Writing and History. I have lived in the Middle East but I’m now settled in Belgium. In addition to Spanish and English, I also speak Turkish and a little French. When I’m not writing, I enjoy reading and reviewing books, as well as helping other …

Getting Personal: A-Z Reflection and Spanking New Series

A-Z Blogging Challenge this year was fun and also a doozy. While I didn't do every letter I had with those I did as well as visiting other bloggers. A few new members joined the Queendsheena fold and I also got to make some new friends including Stephanie Faris who started as the author whose giveaway I won to a regular visitor as we got closer during A-Z. I enjoy seeing her comments and was excited this week to help share the cover for 25 Roses, her second upcoming novel. The most touching one for me was Z because after dropping off after M and deciding to return for the last letter, it was touching to see comments of support and happiness come pouring in despite my absence. This challenge not only pushes you to the brink but it opens you up to new people and makes the ones already around feel even closer.

Thank you A-Z 2014 for making me feel so loved and uniting us bloggers even closer.

Spanking New Series

I mentioned earlier this year that Sacrifice HER got delayed because I w…

A double whammy folks! Two covers both by amazing authors. Funny enough I met Stephanie through Elizabeth having a giveaway on my blog and we visited each other through the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Both of these ladies have amazing covers today and whether you love romance gone awry or wayward Southern Belles, there is a book here for you today. Enjoy!

25 Roses by Stephanie Faris




Summary: Valentine's Day means one thing at Stanton Middle School: students will send each other chocolate roses. Each year, Mia Hartley watches while the same group of students gets roses and everyone else is left out. This year, she decides things will be different. As the student assigned to write names on the cards, Mia purchases 25 roses and writes her own cards, designating them to 25 people she's personally chosen. But she soon learns that playing matchmaker is much more complicated than she thought it would be.

Gabe is an average fifteen-year-old goblin. He’s in the marching band, breezes through calculus, and gets picked on daily by the other kids at school, especially the ogres. Gabe’s closest friends are goblins like him, but Gabe is tired of being a goblin – he’d like to try other things. And he has his eye on the new ogress at school. It’s against all beastly rules, but there’s just something about her.


When a prank goes wrong, Gabe is forced to join the football team as punishment – but finds a way to make i…
