Calling all authors

My book-blogging alter ego took a much-needed hiatus from doing the weekly Q&A columns with authors as I went through a pretty big transition, moving 400 miles to a new city and starting a new career.

Now that this job is feeling comfortable and most of the boxes are unpacked at my new place, I decided it's time to get back at it.

Therefore, I am re-opening the call for interviews. Have a book published already? Have one coming out? (Not vanity or print-on-demand titles,…

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Hi Bethany
I'm practicing living on no money too. I was recently laid off an editing job and took it as a sign to finish another novel. Why is everything fun also scary?
I'd been happy to participate in an interview.

My WIP is going quite well. Thanks for asking!

How are your interviews going? I've read quite a few, and my favorite question tends to be "What is your writing process like?" I find it fascinating to look into how other writers go about the process of turning their ideas into a finished product. Because sometimes when I look back on one of my finished books I think magic must've been involved somehow.
