Hey all! Welcome to the first of what I hope are many author interviews! Today we’re going to speak with Serenity Valle who has written a paranormal mystery book named Acquittal! Serenity began writing short stories when she was 7 years old. She illustrated these stories as well, even though now she admits she
As a librarian, I’m sure it’ll come as no shock that my favorite part of crafting a book is the research. So many might ask… how on earth does someone find research on an esoteric topic on something the Celts (especially the Gael culture). Many people might be surprised, but a lot of librarians love these
And what I’ll probably do again later… Okay all joking aside I figured I’d talk a bit about the publishing end of things now. InDesign is a great tool but it also requires learning and honestly now I’m pretty impressed that Chris sort of figured it out on his own. I may know the
`Now it’s my (Heather’s) time to take the baton and run. Hopefully the journey of the baton will continue and be an exciting endeavor for both the authors and the readers. I have gratefully accepted the baton from one of my favorite authors, Ruth Davis Hays. She writes the thrilling Translations from Jorthus series, which
Our giveaway winners are Melina Whitacre and Clay P. Congratulations! You get your choice of a book for our Morrigan’s Brood series! – Also we’ll have a trivia contest today for an ebook from the series on facebook. The contest will be on Triscelle Publishing’s Facebook page
I thought it might be amusing to speak a bit about writing and reading and generally how the two sometimes do not match. Chris and I write historical fantasy for the most part. However, oddly enough… most of the time we don’t gravitate towards reading historical fantasy for fun, which sort of strikes me as
Okay that’s not entirely true. I do have a library at home which is what once was a dining room, but seriously who uses a dining room. They are a waste of space that’s used maybe twice a year. Most people turn there’s into something else… like a sewing room with a dining room table
Last October, Paranormal Haven posted this piece Heather and I (Christopher) had penned that described ‘Halloween’ through the eyes of some of our characters. I use the apostrophes because Halloween as we know it didn’t exist. Each character mentioned (Sitara, Marcus, Maire, and Julien) was from a different time and culture, so each one celebrated a different holiday during this time of year. Well, I thought I would brush the dust off that little bit of writing and re-post it. Now, discover how these four characters celebrated the October through November holidays when they were mortals.
Librarian Seeking …
‘Dear Hiring Manager’… it’s how most of my cover letters start.
I (Heather) did my morning job search again. For those who don’t know, I’m a librarian. It’s what helps me get to the nitty-gritty of history and culture that Chris and I write about. I do love delving into research. It doesn’t always matter what it’s about most of the time. I can say without reserve that I’m a great researcher. I love the challenge of it. I love helping other people with it.
This Week So Far…
… has been difficult thus far, as anyone who has read our previous blog post can attest, but life must go on. In that spirit, I (Christopher) would like to announce the winners of two recent free giveaways. As I mentioned before, we are still going to award books to winners from the Comicpalooza giveaway… it just took us several weeks to announce the winners. Now, with Space City Con, our delay has been a few days, but that is due to our recent tragedy. In addition, I would like to advise our readers of our remaining 2013 appearances, as well as our budding 2014 calendar.
