My Chat with Pépé G. Woodman!

Hello and welcome!

I am so happy on my first blog post of the new year to introduce a brand new author.

Please welcome Pépé G. Woodman!

A warrior of P.T.S.D., Pépé G. Woodman has opened up his lifetime experience in the wake of trauma. A carpenter for more than 30 years, he shares his love of nature and creativity on many levels, through crafting wood and photography.

pepe-1.jpg

Do you have a nickname?
Pepe is my nickname I’ve come up with that one many years ago during my DJing years. Also I started a band called the Tweed Twangerz and my name was Pepe.
My real name is Pierre Guignard. I came up with the G from my last name and Woodman cuz I love working with wood so altogether Pepe G Woodman was born or reborn as it were.

What is one word best describes you?
I would have to say the one word that describes me the best be “unfiltered”. 😀

What makes you laugh out loud?
A truly humorous yet clever jokes or someone’s laughter to a joke are my favourite that make me laugh out loud.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
My favourite smell would have to truly be fresh laundry from the line outside. It reminds me that I’m actually able to relax.

Favourite place to spend time in.
I absolutely love being in nature taking hikes discovering and taking photographs.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
I don’t per se refuse to read any type of genre, I enjoy reading for knowledge. If there is something I don’t know, I either ask somebody, or I do research and that consists of a lot of reading. If I have to go into various genres to find information, so be it. All writing is valuable.

Writing! What started it?
I was diagnosed with PTSD 6+ years ago. Looking at my photographs, the places that I’ve been made me reminisce about positive things I felt being in those places, so I began to start writing into the photos that I take. In doing so, I discovered I could actually write a book.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
I have never committed myself to one trade or work experience. I’m a man of many talents this I have finally accepted. I am a carpenter by trade, but if I had to choose another career, it would be a wilderness tour guide hands down.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
The work that I do is carpentry or I problem solve and do home repairs and maintenance. For my clients I see satisfaction in their faces.

rings.jpg
As for other works I create wooden rings and the message in my rings are all personal to the individual that owns one.

Pepe-woodwork.jpg

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
My intended audience would be people with PTSD like myself, but hearing back from readers that purchased the book, I have discovered it can be for anyone.

What is next in your writing?
I truly would like to do part two of my first book. Maybe write my life story in the hopes that it would help all types of people of all races and of all genders.

Thank you Pépé for chatting with me and I am looking forward to the next book.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the chat and will join Pépé in his writing adventure.

The Dragon Within: Healing Through A Lens In The Tranquility of Nature

A warrior of P.T.S.D., Pépé G. Woodman shares his personal journey of healing through a lens in the tranquility of nature. Inside this breathtaking collection of nature in all its glory, Pépé includes a few extra blank pages for the reader to journal their own thoughts and reflections as they share this healing experience.

print-book.jpg

My review: 5 stars
I read the book over a few days and it was really good, such a heartfelt and inspirational story. It can be taken in small doses because it makes you think, at the same time, giving you hope that it can get better. As one suffering from PTSD, I found it helpful, enforcing the feeling that I am not alone. The photos were amazing, showing the tranquility in nature and the power of it over our psyche. The word play, coming up with positive words for the letters PTSD was well done. I recommend the book for anybody who likes photography and want to know more on one man’s struggle and continuous search for brighter days.

Pépé played Xavier Cross in the Murder Mystery Dinner theatre at KaLiCon and he was amazing. The play was based on the book Invited, A Dinner to Die For by Kali Willows and Kacey Hammell, there was one copy in the last giveaway on this blog 😉

Check out his website for all the awesome creations in wood here. I purchased a ring and then I won a second one in one of his giveaways on FB. Love them.

I would love to gift you, or a loved one who you think could benefit from this book, a copy of The Dragon Within. Tell me what you do to lift your spirits on a bad day. Sexy Mr. Random will pick the winner from the comments, after 3pm EST on Monday, January 6, 2020. GOOD LUCK!

My Chat with Elijah … again ;)

Hello and welcome!

I am so excited one my BBF is visiting again. Ever since I heard his book was coming out I was so excited and he didn’t disappoint.

Hello, Eniko. I’m Natasza Waters. Currently, my nose is buried in Dixie Under Siege, so I thought I’d ask Lt. Elijah Bach to visit with you and your readers. He’s a veteran Navy SEAL and the hero in my newest release called Cricket Under Fire.

Please welcome Elijah!

DAYUM Natasza! I know I meet him before but … DAYUM … DAYUM … where is my fan?

elijah-capture.png

Do you have a nickname?
For sure! All special operators have a team name. Sometimes, they’re off the wall and a result of a characteristic or skill. My instructor on BUD/s tagged me with the name Crux. If you read Cricket Under Fire, you’ll learn why.

What is one word that best describes you?
Depends who you ask. he says grininng Ask one of the team guys and he’ll probably tell you I’m a hard-liner. When we’re tasked on a mission, the squad wants it to go as planned, doesn’t always happen that way. As a lieutenant of Alpha Squad, I have expectations, but I know my men and their abilities. They set the bar pretty high.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Ran ten miles with Mace and Tinman this afternoon. Came home, took a shower, then slipped on a pair of drawstring sweatpants… and that’s about all. he winks

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She gets Bravo Zulus from me. SEALs wear a uniform and fight for Uncle Sam, but we’ve all got a little good, bad and ugly inside us. The squad’s CPO Mason Briggs says it best. “We’re just blood and bone.” Until Rayne came to work at Base Command, I tended to keep my relationships short n sweet. Miss Levy changed all that.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Team guys are always yanking on each other’s chains. Gotta be that way to de-ice ourselves from warfare. During Mission: Tropic Tango, where Rayne and I partnered up, I made a rookie mistake. The guys ribbed me about it. he chuckles I deserved it.

What is your favourite drink?
I’ll drop by Breakers bar with the rest of Alpha Squad to throw back a couple brews.

What is your greatest fear?
Once I knew Rayne felt the same about me as I did about her, my fear of losing her skyrocketed. Falling in love with someone has an effect on a man. I’ve seen a lot of things overseas most people haven’t. Yeah, he shakes his head think a little fear keeps us centered. It’s natural, and maybe I’m a little obsessed of my forever gal, but I just want her to be safe.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Elijah chuckles Although not always the case, it’s not the place that makes a date romantic but the woman you’re with.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
That’s an easy one. The smell of home. There’s no place I’d rather be. Think any SEAL will tell ya that family comes first after Uncle Sam is finished with us.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Hmm, good question. Had a lot of years being a card-carrying bachelor. As cheesy as it sounds, when I saw a woman laugh or a gal with a beautiful smile, that always drew my attention. Reminds guys like us that not everything in this world is evil.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
It’s no secret Rayne Levy is the woman who stopped me dead in my tracks. Like most single guys, I had a tendency to keep things simple. When Rayne was hired by base command, Nina, her trainer, got in my face and told me to steer clear of Rayne. SEALs have high-octane professions. Takes a special woman to rein us in. From our first encounter, I had no doubt Miss Levy was special. Smart. Sweet. I loved the way she looked at life. I couldn’t ignore how she looked at me. And I sure as hell couldn’t get her out of my head. For three months, I kept my distance, then a mission brought us together. It didn’t take me long to realize Rayne was the woman I wanted to build a white picket fence with.

What is one word that best describes her?
Real. She’s down to earth. Smart. Caring. Sexy. Brave. Inquisitive. Guess that’s a whole lot more than one word, but she’s all of those things.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Think Natasza is working on Dixie Under Siege which will be the second book in A Warrior’s Passion series. Dix owns the new coffeehouse in Coronado called the Erotic Bean. Commander Josh Hunter assumed Ghost’s role at NAB, found out that someone is stalking her. Problem is years ago, Dix and Josh were engaged. I know Josh, he’ll catch the guy, but I also think he wants to mend some fences with his ex. But he’s gonna have firefight on his hands.

So excited to see you again, learned a few more things since last time. Thank you for the chat.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the new chat with Elijah. If you missed the last one, you can check it out here. I rather enjoyed being Cricket for a few LOL

Look at this delicious cover, and I promise you the story is too 😉

CricketUnderFire_LRG.jpg

As he mentioned, he hails from Cricket Under Fire, book 1 in the A Warrior’s Passion Series by one of my fave authors, Natasza Waters.

Military Romance – Rayne Levy’s new career is about to take an explosive turn.

Rayne’s excited about her future. Hired by NAB Coronado as a tactical analyst at Base Command, she’s up for the challenge. On her first day, she meets Lt. Elijah Bach, a rugged Navy SEAL with a sizzling reputation. His men respect him, but Rayne’s training officer warns her that the handsome warrior and proverbial bachelor is a boatload of trouble. 

Tasked on Operation: Tropic Tango, Elijah is partnered with Rayne. Her inexperience isn’t the problem. She’s intelligent, tenacious and determined to prove herself. For six months he’s struggled to keep his distance. From the sidelines, he’s watched her confidence soar. Now, they’re thrown together on a mission. Concealing his hunger is one thing. Defying the slow-burn of desire is another, but when Rayne walks too close to the flames, his control unravels, and so does his ability to resist what he wants most.

Check out the trailer

My review: 5 stars ( I wish I could give more)

It is sooo goooood to be back in this world.
I really enjoyed reading Rayne and Elijah’s story, they fit so well. Their story is suspense, adventure mixed with hot scenes and some laughs too. It was great to see again the couples from the previous series, love their close-knit group and how their ladies match their men so well, they protect their own…. together.
I am looking forward to more… and hopefully soon.

NEW RELEASE – Broken Rules by Lily Baldwin

Hello and welcome!

There is a new release today I’ve been anticipating ever since I found out about it. I fell in love with the cover. Isn’t it gorgeous?

broken-cover.jpg

CONGRATS Lily Baldwin!

broken-banner.jpg

Broken Rules

Someone at some point claimed that the love of a good woman could change even the most wayward man. Savannah Honey has put this theory to test more often than she’d care to admit. And what experience has taught her is that it isn’t true.

Bad boys never change.

So she makes a new rule…no more bad boys, period.

Hard knocks haven’t made Damien hard…they’ve made him indifferent. But when he gets a second chance at love with the girl who once showed him a kindness in his youth that he never forgot, he can’t help but care.

Dangerous and doomed to fail, their attraction is impossible to defend and even harder to resist. But love never reads warning labels and sometimes rules were made to be broken.

I will have Damien for a chat soon, so keep a lookout for that. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the book. I started it already and I love what I read so far.

An Elven Love Song – Cover Reveal

Hello and welcome!

I am so excited to share the cover of “An Elven Love Song“, a novella in the Guardians of the Empire series by M. A. Abraham.

AELS-cover-final-lowrez.jpg

Well after the Drazon Wars, in the Valley gifted to the humans that once rode at the side of the Elves…

Matrium, the only child of Segreth and Larieth of the Valley is a lonely Elven Princess despite the love of all the people surrounding her. She yearns for her Life Mate, although she is not aware of doing so, or of his existence.

Gaylon is a musician in the lands of his ancestors of the Elven Empire and he can feel the lure of his Life Mate. In his heart there is only love and a song, one he will only play to one. He rides to seek her out and win her heart.

With one glance the two lovers know they were meant to be. Yet, true to her Light Elven heritage, Matrium will fight the attraction, while Gaylon plays their song to guide her to his side.

This is their song.

It will be part of the paperback edition of The Priestess, book 3 of the GOTE series, expected to release on February 20, 2020.

Her fan group convinced M. A. Abraham to release it separately in ebook format and I am hoping it will happen in December. If you agree, comment below and let her know you want this short story to release at Christmas.

I had a lot of fun designing the cover, knowing the story helps immensely. When I met Matrium in the first book of the series, The Goddess, I knew I had to know more of her story and I begged MA to tell it. I hope you will love her story as much as I did.

Check out the rest of the books in the series.

GOTE-logo-4web.jpg

THE GUARDIANS OF THE EMPIRE – 12-book series
and whatever short stories I can manage to convince MA to write 😉 

A sequel to the ‘Elven Chronicles’ and ‘One Empire’ series.

There are twelve Elves who have proven their worth over the Millennium. They have won the right to shift into Dragons, so they have become Guardians of the Elven Empire. They have won this honor through valor, might and compassion. They are prime Elves, the sons of Kings, but they have been alone for too long, without the hope of meeting their Life Mates. Because of this, they are beginning to lose their identities. They live their lives for duty, as they fly patrols around the borders of the boundary Emperor Lothrariel and his Kings created to keep the Empire safe. But, one day at a time, they are beginning to succumb to their Draconian half. It is time something was done to stop this, and their leader, King Gerolth, has set a plan in place to take care of this problem.

Somewhere in the Elven worlds there are Life Mates for these Guardians, and King Gerolth is determined that they will be found, before it is too late.

Audiobooks to listen to: Instant Gratification

Hello and welcome!

Another great audio you don’t want to miss is the one I listened to a few days ago and that is Instant Gratification by Lauren Blakely.

Instant.jpg

A star-studded production of a new stand-alone romance from number one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely, performed by a full cast of 15 narrators. Led by Andi Arndt and Shane East, the all-star cast also includes award winners and fan favorites: Vikas Adam, Bahni Turpin, Scott Brick, Zachary Webber, Jason Clarke, Emma Wilder, Hillary Huber, Joe Arden, Grace Grant, Marisa Calin, Lili Valente, newcomer Adam Lau, and Sebastian York in a special appearance.

I need a fake date. She needs my late-night expertise. Now, if we can just keep our hands off each other….

As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of “I dos”, I turn to my gorgeous, clever, witty best friend’s sister. She’s my good friend, too, and I lust after her completely. I mean, I trust her completely.

After all, just look how she’s kept her lips sealed about the hot, multi-O night we spent together. Yes, just look at those sexy lips.

In any case, we only fell off the wagon once, and it was months ago. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo.

Or can we?

This special production also includes a behind-the-scenes conversation with Andi Arndt and Shane East as well as a blooper reel!

My review:

Overall 5 out of 5 stars
Performance 5 out of 5 stars
Story 5 out of 5 stars

eargasm overload
A great romcom story that we come to expect from Ms. Blakely, friends to lovers with chemistry thru the roof, with some comic relief from friends and family, comeback lines, and very little angst and no drama, which I love. The singing, the banter between friends, the heat between the couples, the energy between partners and love of family is all felt throughout the book. Jason and Truly get their HEA and judging by the few epilogues we can expect other couples will too in future books. YAY
I had a few eargasms from the intro alone. The voices are incredible, some are my faves I listened to before and some new ones too that I will be sure to check out more of. The story is alive, it was like listening to a theatre show on the radio, they made it so easy to listen to, I could not stop. It is an experience not to be missed. I know I will be listening to this one again.

Audiobooks to listen to: Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words

Hello and welcome!

I just finished one of the best audiobook I listened to this year and I thought I should share it with you.

audible_original_template_Heidi3c-768x768.png

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words” is a laugh-out-loud romcom with a few cringe-worthy (for Heidi that is) situations and some hawt scenes too. I learned a few new expressions too.

Uff da is one of them, I learned that is used to express surprise, relief, exhaustion, astonishment, and dismay. It kind of means “drats!”, “oops!”, “ouch!”, “Oh no!” or “Okay!”

uff-da-uff-da-mug_1.jpgsource

I need one of these in my life LOL

Cowritten by USA Today best-selling author Tara Sivec and award-winning narrator Andi Arndt, a hysterically funny, heartfelt romance about starting over and taking chances.

Nothing good ever comes from drinking a box of wine alone. So when I decided to entertain my drunken self by setting up some hand-me-down podcasting equipment and reading the steamy parts from romance novels, I never thought anyone would actually listen. The fact that I admitted my huge crush on my sexy next door neighbor made the whole thing even more mortifying. But sometimes life surprises you, and that’s how my podcast, Heidi’s Discount Erotica, was born.

Now I, Heidi Larsen, a sweet former kindergarten teacher in Waconia, Minnesota, lead a scandalous double life reading erotic novels to the listening world. And with each episode, I find myself embracing my new alter ego more and more. Now I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin and do things I never would have dreamed of – like kissing my neighbor.

Look out, Waconia, because Heidi’s on the loose! She’s in your ears, in your hearts, and down your pants…wait, that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. Well, you get the picture, don’tcha know!

3827104.jpg

My review:

Overall 5 out of 5 stars
Performance 5 out of 5 stars
Story 5 out of 5 stars

“sweet and hilarious”
One of the best books I listened to this year. Sweet, innocent Heidi comes out of her shell and oh boy what a ride. Hilarious at times where I burst out laughing, startled quite a few people around me, at work or in the elevator. DO NOT DRINK OR EAT while listening to this! I loved the interactions between Heidi and her quirky parents and the Aunt is my fave character. Love Brent, her hawt neighbour. They get their HEA, but there are a few twists I so didn’t expect. My first book by Ms. Sivec and I am looking forward to discovering more of her books.

Ms. Arndt is one of my fave narrators, I love listening to her voices, and with this debut novel that launches her writing career, she is even more so. I really hope there will be more because I need more stories.

I wonder if I can convince Andi and Tara to send one of the characters for a chat… hmm… maybe Brent? Or Heidi’s Aunt? She is my fave secondary character… hmmm

I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope there will be more books in Heidi’s world, we need more stories!!!

My Chat with Hayley – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 7

Hello and welcome!

Another heroine is joining me today, read on and find out who she is.

What is your full name?
Hayley Elizabeth Fitzgibbon

Do you have a nickname?
Rory calls me ‘Hales’. Since we were kids. I used to dislike it but these days, it’s not so bad.

What is one word best describes you?
Passionate.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Black skirt, white tank top, and red heels.
Dayum girl! Those are wicked, stand up and let me see them better.

redheels.pngsource

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I do, yes. Kacey realized it was time for me to tell my best friend how I feel about Rory. She didn’t allow me to hold back, and to finally confront it head on. Kacey’s encouragement means so much to me, and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Funny jokes, the camaraderie between best friends who know one another so well that nothing is off limits. Nothing is more healing than laughter.

What is your favourite dessert?
Lemon meringue pie. My grandmother used to make the best.

What is your favourite drink?
Non alcoholic – coffee. No day can start without at least two cups.
Alcoholic – margaritas.

What is your greatest fear?
Heights. I’m not a fan of being up higher than how tall I am. I like to keep my feet on the ground.

What is your favourite colour?
Red. There are so many shades of it, I can’t pick just one.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing. I don’t like to get tangled up in anything.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Quiet time. A nice quiet dinner with great conversation, maybe a walk along the water or through a park. Good quality time, just being together and appreciating one another.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Oh my gosh. Is there anyone alive who isn’t ticklish? How could someone not be. I’m ticklish in multiple places. Especially my feet, but also under my chin, behind my knees. Well, that’s all the places I’ll tell you about.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Lilacs. They remind me of my childhood and my grandmother. The moments when we’d go pick them from around her yard. There were a gazillion lilac bushes on her land and we’d pick them fresh daily. I loved those moments and cherish the memories.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His eyes. I believe a man’s eyes can tell so much more than what he might say verbally. I love gazing into Rory’s eyes. They always express his kindness and humour, as well the laugh-lines around his eyes are very adorable. His eyes also show me how much he loves me. Every woman should be able to read all the love her man has for her through his eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Rory, whose been in my life forever. We grew up together, have gone through so much, and we finally admitted how we truly feel about one another a few years ago.

What is one word best describes him?
Sincere. I could go on and on about all his amazing qualities, Eniko, but I love how honest and genuine he is. Rory is always sincere in his advice and guidance with me and our friends.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
The Revved & Ready books are not a series, but a collection of stories with the common theme of Mustangs. Kacey’s favourite car is the Mustang, ranging from year to year, and who doesn’t really? Their long, sleek and sexy. I think my heat-o-meter ramped up when Rory bought his many years ago. giggle The Mustang in each story also seems to be the way for everyone to come together at the crucial moments that they need to realize what’s right in front of them, what they miss, or for comfort with the past.

There are many more to come in the collection. Kacey has some incredible adventures coming up that readers will absolutely enjoy. I’m thrilled that it all started with mine and Rory’s story, 69 Mustang. Each one is more incredible than the last. Readers have to check them out.

They sound awesome, I am looking forward to reading your story. Thanks for chatting with me Hayley.

Did you enjoy the chat? As Hayley mentioned she hails from “69 Mustang” by Kacey Hammell.

Author Bio

Canadian author, Kacey Hammell is definitely a book-a-holic, who began reading romances at a young age and became easily addicted. These days, as a multi-published erotic romance author, she enjoys adding a lot of heat, sass and emotion to the Contemporary Romances she writes.

Mom of three, Kacey has made certain each of her children know the value of the written word and the adventures they could escape on by becoming book-a-holics in their own right. She lives her own happily ever after with her perfect hero in Ontario, Canada, and is a true romantic at heart.

My Chat with Zera – KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle – day 6

Hello and welcome!

Have you read the previous 5 chats? You should. They are awesome characters.

Today I have another heroine and she is kickass, I can’t wait to read her story. Read on and see how awesome she is.

What is your full name?
Zera Chancelay

Do you have a nickname?
They call my Chancy – because I tend to be a risk-taker.

What is one word best describes you?
Hmm… Badass?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
My typical military issue attire for training; combat books, camo pants, white tank top and a ponytail.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Kali gets me, more so than most, I think. Deep down, I think she sees a little of me in herself. Maybe that’s what she manages to portray my thoughts and feelings so well in my story.

What makes you laugh out loud?
These days, not much. The weight of the world on my shoulders and all. If I had to pick something, I’d say the playful banter between Elyse and Ghost. Those two are polar opposites, and yet perfectly suited for each other. Under their constant bickering, they really love one another.

What is your favourite dessert?
Anything but rations, to be honest. I’m a sucker for Strawberry Cheesecake. Man, I could kill for a slice right now! We don’t get the good food on base. scrunches nose in disgust
Got some mini cakes for you, taste this one.

What is your favourite drink?
A double Whiskey Sour. In fact, plenty of them will suit me just fine, thank you!

What is your greatest fear?
Losing everyone I love. Oh wait, been there, done that. Okay, not being able to save our two worlds from complete and utter destruction.

What is your favourite colour?
I’m partial to black, but the camo green kinda grows on me.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
My tank top and panties. I always keep my pants and boots at the edge of the bed. You never know when the enemy will be crashing through your door.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Oh, wow. I had the perfect date. Sushi, Saki, secret messages of adoration and stolen kisses in the dead of night. Other times, a good sparring session of KAPAP sets my blood on fire.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I honestly don’t know. No one’s ever dared try to tickle me. It seems most folks are a little intimidated by me.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
My favourite smell is hardwood burning in the fire place. It reminds me of home. My in-laws have a beautiful cabin in the Catskills. The crackling fire is one of the few things that calm my warrior spirit.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
There’s only one man who catches my interest. His shoulder length, dirty blonde, the way the stray wisps dance around his perfect face. His full, luscious lips, tanned complexion and the gold flecks mixed in the blues of his irises. It doesn’t hurt to look at his broad, muscular shoulders and rock-solid chest, and just the site of him in his camo pants and tank top. The way it hugs his corrugated abs… sigh I’m sorry, where was I?

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Whoa, that’s a story in itself. First, I had the love of my life, then I lost him. Then, I sort of connected with a duplicate. That turned out to be a major problem, there were bullets, explosions… let’s just say, it’s complicated.

What is one word best describes him?
Perfect… stares at the wall blankly Where was I?

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Let’s just sum it up with, Kali has yet to write a complete series. She tends to be a single story kind of author as of late, but this story is just the beginning. There is room for an endless series, a TV show, major motion picture, star-studded cast like Chris Hemsworth, Charlie Hunnam… Oh man, there is no end to the possibilities. Considering how long it Kali took to write this story, it’s hard to predict the future. You know, she’s constantly distracted by her damn dragon fetish. Maybe if we genetically modify one, she’ll get inspired? Anyway, I’ve got tons of work left to do, and to be honest, there is a little unfinished business in this story. Uh hmm, eyes the author with an evil glare Kali will have to speak to that later. I will just add, I’m pushing her for more.

Thanks for taking the time to chat with me. I try to sneak online between training sessions and combat. It’s always great to see your awesome interviews on SEELKs FIRE &  ICE. I can’t believe you actually picked me to talk to! Maybe my whole saving the world assignment upped my profile?

Thank you Zera for chatting with me, I am looking forward to reading your story and I will give you a hand in nudging Kali to get more stories… and a movie with Chris and Charlie? Sign me up.

Hope you enjoyed the chat. Zera hails from “Utopic Paradigm” by Kali Willows. The book will release in the fall. The KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle has chapter 1 from this book.
