Let’s hear it for Sarah Wallace!!

S.L. Wallace in hat resized

Hey everyone!!  Please help us welcome SJ Wallace.  Woot!! IIsn’t she cute?  We love the hat Sarah and thanks for taking time out of your busy day to share your fantastic news with us.  Her latest book, Retrospection, is out now and for only .99 cents!!!  It won’t last long though, so get your copy today.

Real quick, before we get to the books, we want to share with you some little known facts about the author SJ Wallace!!

~She is an upper elementary Montessori teacher, teaching students in grades 4-6, all in the same classroom. (Crazy if you ask us!!)

~~She enjoys playing volleyball even though she isn’t very good at it.

~~~Plants in her care rarely survive, but kids and animals thrive. (LOL)

~~~~She is a descendant of the famous William Wallace. Like him, she believes in freedom and independence. Unlike him, she fights her battles with the pen, most recently taking a political stand against recent changes in government at both local and state levels.

~~~~~The Reliance on Citizens trilogy is her first published series.

Here’s a bit about each of the books by Sarah Wallace:

The Writing Duo – Part Two

K.R. and I thought it might be nice to give you, our reader, a little back history on us.  This is part two of the writing duo known as K.R. Hughes and T.L. Burns.

WSNHeadshot-34

~~~~~ T.L. Burns and K.R. Hughes are small town girls with a big idea.  It all started with an advanced writing class that posed the challenge to come up with something that has never been done before.  While pondering this scenario over dinner with the hubbies, CNN flashed the news of Anna Nicole Smith’s death.

The shocking similarities in Anna and Marilyn’s death got them onto the subject of how everyone wants to emulate Marilyn Monroe’s looks and charm to somehow capture the sex appeal that attracted both sexes to her.  After a bit of musing, the idea struck T.L. that an ‘altered’ history of sorts would make a great novel.  What if Marilyn Monroe had lived?  What if What She Knew could save John F. Kennedy from assassination?  But more importantly what if the world could see a Marilyn Monroe that was vulnerable, lost and in need of help?

While K.R. put together the details and plot, T.L. did endless research on the subject and then the collaboration took place until both were satisfied.  Once the first book was completed, the authors realized there was enough material to make a trilogy.  As of this date, Hughes and Burns have published book one, Fateful Night, and are about to release book two, Darkest Day (release date is Sept 17th).  Currently, they are working on book three of the trilogy, name to yet be determined.~~~~~

We hope you enjoyed part two of our story. If you have any questions about us or our process, please ask away in the comment section below.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Blessings,

K.R. and T.L.

The Writing Duo – Part One

K.R. and I thought it might be nice to give you, our reader, a little back history on us.  This is part one of the writing duo known as K.R. Hughes and T.L. Burns.

WSNHeadshot-8

~~~~~We began our journey as a writing team with great joy and anticipation of spending countless hours together; laughing and doing our normal stuff, on a day to day basis.  We are besties, actually we transcend besties in every normal way, we are sisters and best friends and we respect each other’s gifts and talents as what they are; God given.

Once the decision had been made to follow through on this story we realized that while it could be some fun and there should be some normalcy, writing together would be anything but that.  Poor me, T.L. would sift through countless internet articles, research endless bios and auto biographies until my eyes were crossed and tired.  K.R. would then take my notes on Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy or whoever, and reduce them to a three paragraph recap.

What actually makes us a great team is that I love research and K.R. hates it.  I really do enjoy compiling information in a way that makes sense.  K.R. appreciates that about me and my ability to smile when she reduces all of that work to a short pile of rubble.  I in turn appreciate that K.R. can word things to be suspenseful and not at all girly.  She’s been accused of being a sparse writer, allowing the reader to fill in the décor and details as they wish.  Hemmingway was much the same but she doesn’t share his depression or mood swings.

While writing book one and two of the What She Knew Trilogy, we enjoyed countless hours at our favorite neighborhood restaurant where the refill on soda was plentiful and the quiet was assured.  We thrive on the back ground noise in this atmosphere and do our best writing in the company of numerous others we don’t know.~~~~~

We hope you enjoyed this little tid bit of our back story.  Blessings,

K.R. and T.L.

Reluctantly, Danta rises again to confront Mantid Tranquil, but there is the most intense intervention of what appears a persistent paranormal, a sophisticated supernatural, and perhaps this most pernicious of preternatural experience engaging Danta and Mantid Tranquil during the course revenge. Will Danta adequately defend against the known and unknown phenomena bearing down upon him, or, will vengeance of the Lethal Believers and the uncertainty of mythic elements prevail at the expense of The Innocents?

Please Welcome Author Lisa Day!

Lisa Day wolfkeeper cover

It’s our pleasure to have author Lisa Day with us!!  She has taken time from her busy schedule to answer a few questions and allow us to get to know her.  Lisa Day hails from New Jersey before ‘Jersey Girls’ became famous. Since living in the south for so long she now thinks of herself as a southern bell, just born in the wrong century. So, what else is a girl to do but write those pesky stories that live within her head. Exactly!  Let’s get started!!

 Lisa, if you could change one thing about our world, what would it be and why?


I’d remove ‟Greed.” Greed creates selfishness. Selfishness creates pride. Pride creates Bigotry. Bigotry creates hate, anger and abuse.

Wow, so very true.  We have to agree with you, let’s remove greed!  If you knew the exact date of your death down to the minute, what would you change about your life starting tomorrow?

Depends on how much time..Very little — for you can’t truly undo past hurts. I’d  spend time with those who mattered and not waste on those with empty words.

So true, time with those we love and who love us should always be first.  Ok, if you could go back in time to when you were seven years old, what wisdom or advice would you pass on to yourself?

I’d tell myself to look up and realize there are more options out there that can make you feel fulfilled as a person. Also, I’d be sure I understood the value of a good education.

That’s wonderful advice.  Can you share with us what you are grateful for?

One thing is that unlike many others I had a pretty easy and secure childhood.

That’s wonderful.  Well, at what age were you the happiest? What triggered such joy? 

At thirty-one I married a man I deeply respected.

What is the number one lie you tell yourself? How is that working out?

I’m still seventeen. Not bad if I don’t look in a mirror and see an old lady. It can get sort of embarrassing when I move and discover I don’t bend that way any more. The health issues remind me everyday that I’m not seventeen.  

I think we all struggle with this!! Lisa, when was the last time you felt alive? I mean really alive! 

I’m not sure I ever have.

Then that might be something for your bucket list!  After a difficult day what do you do to recuperate? Does it work?

The difficult days a rare now. When I retired removed a lot of my stress and need to unwind.

Lisa, thank you so much for being with us today!  We appreciate the candid reply too.  It’s nice to get to know someone deeper than the surface.  We wish you all the best with your novel, “Wolfkeeper’s Woman.”

Here’s a synopsis of her wonderful novel, Wolfkeeper’s Woman:

A country where the strong survive. Some people are strong of body. Other people are strong in spirit.
The warrior Wolfkeeper is such a man. A man not only physically strong but strong-willed with a wisdom beyond his years. A wisdom that serves his people well.
Until the day he begins to question how he could have tender feelings for someone he considers an enemy.
There were no pangs of conscience when he took the child for his brother and sister-in-law to raise. They had no children of their own. The Mother even though an enemy the infant wouldn’t survive the journey if he hadn’t brought her along.
Cassie raised in an orphanage only recently began to believe she found happiness. Now she learned to hate. She just wants her son back. Thrown into an unfamiliar lifestyle and unable to communicate she must learn how to stay alive for her son.
She will learn the language. She will follow the rules. She will do anything she needs to get her son back… But will it be enough?

Greatest Moment As A Writer – Wendy and Charles Siefkin

Hi everyone!

We are blessed to have with us again the dynamic writing duo of Wendy Siefkin and her son Charles Siefkin! They are the authors of Kia’s Journey, which happens to be .99 right now!!

Kai's Journey

http://dld.bz/cHYHS

KR and TL: Have you ever had a moment, even if it was a split second when someone noticed you for the unique person you are or complemented you on a job well done? Do you remember what that feels like in your heart?

For both of us it was when the principal and the teachers were getting together to have an Individual Education Plan for his school year and the teachers and principal realized that Charlie had written the book and published it as well. Had set up websites and actually sold books as well. That was the day that one of the teachers was really impressed that we had come up with a cover, published it, marketing and everything that went along with it.

Mr. Kozak had brought his laptop and went to the amazon web page and looked at the book. He looked at the websites as well as our Facebook pages. He asked Charlie what all we had done and I was so proud to listen to him tell about the marketing we had done up to that point and what we had found that seemed to work best for us. Mr. Kozak and the rest of the teachers there were very impressed with what he had done and what we had done together.

I did remind Mr. Kozak that since Charlie was still a minor at the time for most of the process I had spearheaded the queries for agents and publishing houses as well. Together we discussed the options available to us with each company that happened to contact us back and made our decisions together. Finances played a very large part in what we could and couldn’t do. That is how we managed to stay out of quite a few of the vanity presses and other places that wanted money up front.
When the teachers and Mr. Kozak looked at us and had that look on their face of “they really did it.” That was our moment, one of our greatest compliments.

Wow! That is fantastic!! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing this wonderful, inspirational story with us! We wish you both the very best.

Here’s a synopsis of this awesome book:

Kai has been fighting for survival and trying to find a way rid the world of the disease his father created…

Kai’s father accidentally created a race of zombies and like a virus; it soon spreads throughout the entire world!

Kai comes across a young woman named Clover, who is part of a clan traveling across the United States to try to find what is left of humanity.

Clover is a part of a clan who has a secret of their own. Hiding among what is left of the human race, will Kai be able to handle the truth?

Kai and Clover are watching a meteor shower when their lives are changed forever!

Kai and Clover begin a heroic journey, fueled by the increasingly dim hope that somehow, the human race will have a chance to start over.

Wendy and Charles, we want to thank you both so much for joining us today. What an inspiration the two of you are.  We wish you all the best in the world and can’t wait for the next book to come out.

Goodbye, Norma Jean.

Just a few short days ago was the 51st anniversary of the tragic death of Marilyn Monroe.  At that time, the news hit the front headlines like a ton of bricks: “Marilyn Monroe Found Dead”

028

Here’s the blurb from one of the papers at the time:

On August 5, 1962, movie actress Marilyn Monroe is found dead in her home in Los Angeles. She was discovered lying nude on her bed, face down, with a telephone in one hand. Empty bottles of pills, prescribed to treat her depression, were littered around the room. After a brief investigation, Los Angeles police concluded that her death was “caused by a self-administered overdose of sedative drugs and that the mode of death is probable suicide.”

Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jean Mortenson in Los Angeles on June 1, 1926. Her mother was emotionally unstable and frequently confined to an asylum, so Norma Jean was reared by a succession of foster parents and in an orphanage. At the age of 16, she married a fellow worker in an aircraft factory, but they divorced a few years later. She took up modeling in 1944 and in 1946 signed a short-term contract with 20th Century Fox, taking as her screen name Marilyn Monroe. She had a few bit parts and then returned to modeling, famously posing nude for a calendar in 1949.

She began to attract attention as an actress in 1950 after appearing in minor roles in the The Asphalt Jungle and All About Eve. Although she was onscreen only briefly playing a mistress in both films, audiences took note of the blonde bombshell, and she won a new contract from Fox. Her acting career took off in the early 1950s with performances in Love Nest (1951), Monkey Business (1952), and Niagara (1953). Celebrated for her voluptuousness and wide-eyed charm, she won international fame for her sex-symbol roles in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), and There’s No Business Like Show Business (1954). The Seven-Year Itch (1955) showcased her comedic talents and features the classic scene where she stands over a subway grating and has her white skirt billowed up by the wind from a passing train. In 1954, she married baseball great Joe DiMaggio, attracting further publicity, but they divorced eight months later.

In 1955, she studied with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in New York City and subsequently gave a strong performance as a hapless entertainer in Bus Stop (1956). In 1956, she married playwright Arthur Miller. She made The Prince and the Showgirl–a critical and commercial failure–with Laurence Olivier in 1957 but in 1959 gave an acclaimed performance in the hit comedy Some Like It Hot. Her last role, in The Misfits (1961), was directed by John Huston and written by Miller, whom she divorced just one week before the film’s opening.

By 1961, Monroe, beset by depression, was under the constant care of a psychiatrist. Increasingly erratic in the last months of her life, she lived as a virtual recluse in her Brentwood, Los Angeles, home. After midnight on August 5, 1962, her maid, Eunice Murray, noticed Monroe’s bedroom light on. When Murray found the door locked and Marilyn unresponsive to her calls, she called Monroe’s psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Greenson, who gained access to the room by breaking a window. Entering, he found Marilyn dead, and the police were called sometime after. An autopsy found a fatal amount of sedatives in her system, and her death was ruled probable suicide.

“Probable” that’s the word that bothers us and so many other to this day.  We have found that most people when asked “Did Marilyn die from an accidental overdose?” respond with an emphatic “No, she was murdered.” Now, as to who did the murdering and why, that is up for debate. Some say John F Kennedy’s brother Attorney General, Robert Kennedy; others say Sam Giancana, famous mafia head; and still others say it was her psychiatrist ,Dr Greenson.

New Cover 2013 02

We will never know for sure.  But, we can say, our books, the What She Knew Trilogy, bring forth some compelling evidence, little known historical facts and a bit of imaginative story telling to weave together a very plausible reason as to the ‘why’ the actress was murdered.  We know tons of books have been written about her, her life, her loves, her movies, and her tragic upbringing; but our book is about the life she never got to live. The ‘what if’ life that most get, but was denied to Marilyn.

Five decades after her death, Marilyn Monroe remains a top cultural icon. We feel it’s the unknown details of her final performance that only add to her mystique.  Whatever the reason, people are drawn to her today like no other iconic figure before or after her.

MM Cript

Fans gathered at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery on the 51st anniversary of the her death. There were people attending her memorial from all over the country and flower arrangements from as far away as Russia.

There’s a wonderful write-up with great pictures here: http://dld.bz/cKU3D

We hope you have enjoyed this trip down memory lane, even though it is a sad memory.

Blessings to you all,
K.R. and T.L.
