Talk to Me Tuesday with RL Merrill

Welcome to Talk To Me Tuesdays - RL Merrill

I met author RL “Ro” Merrill a few years back when I was organizing one of my Autism Awareness events on Facebook.  We’ve chatted a lot over the years and I’ve read several of her books, LOVED ‘EM ALL!, and I’m pleased to say we’ve become friends.  This lady is caring, witty, whacky, and just so much fun!  I’m so exciting to Talk with Ro today!

Join Us! ❤

About R.L. Merrill from her Amazon Page
Once upon a time… a teacher, tattoo collector, mom, and rock ‘n’ roll kinda gal opened up a doc and started purging her demons. Several self-published books and a debut gay romance with Dreamspinner Press later, R.L. Merrill is still striving to find that perfect balance between real life and happily ever after. She writes stories set in the places she loves most, such as Hollywood, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Northern California-and Iowa. Ro also loves connecting with other authors online, at the annual Romantic Times Booklovers Convention, and chapter meetings for the Romance Writers of America, of which she’s been a member since 2014. A sucker for underdogs, Ro has adopted a wide variety of pets including cats, dogs, rats, snakes, fish, and a chameleon named Godzilla. Her love of horror is evident the moment you walk in her door and find yourself surrounded by decorative skulls and quirky artwork from around the world. You can find her lurking on social media where she loves connecting with readers, educating America’s youth, being a mom taxi to two busy kids, in the tattoo chair trying desperately to get that back piece finished, or head banging at a rock show near her home in the San Francisco Bay Area. https://www.amazon.com/R.L.-Merrill/e/B00PI6Q1LI/ref=dp_byline_cont_ebooks_1

 

Let’s talk about your favorite genre to read? To write?
To read? Paranormal. I like to really get lost. But mostly I read for authors, not necessarily the genre. I do love me some LGBTQ pairings. To write? Contemporary gives me all the feels and paranormal is damn fun! Horror is something I’m dying to write.
What inspired you to write your first book? And, please, tell us about that book.

A really ugly time in my life got me writing and I’ve not stopped for ten years! I love it. It fulfills me in a way I didn’t think was possible. My first book was a supernatural romance set at a boarding school for children who have been victims of trauma. Someday I’ll publish it! Haunted was my debut and people still tell me they love “dem boys from Houma, LA”

 
Do you have a favorite theme for the stories you read and write?

Hope, Love, and rock ‘n’ roll are at the center of all of my stories. Love healing hurt, good overcoming evil, fate…those are all themes that make frequent appearances in my stories.

Let’s talk POV? Which do you prefer and why?

I started in first person, then switched to third. I can go either way. I don’t know that I have a preference.

What’s on the top of your TBR pile right now?

Clay Davis’s The Ballad Of Pierre Poppet! Arctic Sun by Annabeth Albert, and Robyn Peterman’s latest witch book!

Do you mind sharing the synopsis of your latest story with our readers? Maybe give us a tease to whet our appetites? How did you come up with the idea for this story?

My next release will be part of the Love is All anthology, out June 4th. It’s called Pinups and Puppies

Marianne Cross has lived a life of structure and purpose for the past twenty-four years. Now reluctantly retired from the Air Force, her life is missing those two things that have always defined her. As she struggles to decide where her future lies, she finds peace and solitude flying her vintage airplane. When an opportunity with the organization Pawsitive Flight comes along, allowing her to combine flying with a purpose, she’s interested in the possibilities—especially those concerning the owner of Goth Dog Rescue, Dinah Shaw. She’s tough, beautiful, and she makes Marianne want things she hasn’t allowed herself to want in a long time.

Flying rescue dogs to their furever homes may give Marianne new purpose, and even a home of her own in the process…if she’s willing to risk her heart on a little fly-by-night romance.

The story happened after my best friend’s husband told me he’s been flying dogs to rescue organizations all over the state on his day off in the Cessna he and my bestie own! Isn’t that awesome?

Can we talk about character development? Do you have a set process for developing your characters? Do you plot them out ahead of time or do they develop as you write the story?

It usually starts with a song or a “what if” wondering. I did find a tool recently that helped me create some characters for an upcoming WIP. It’s a graphic I stole from someone.

Please talk to us about where readers can find you on social media and where they can find your books. Maybe share a bit about your top 3 favorite books?

Readers can find me lurking on social media at the links below. I also have a reader group called Ro’s Roadies Of Romance. I’d love for you to join. As for my books:
If you like contemporary with a little sprinkling of the occult, a heap of grief, and some tattoo healing, try Haunted. If ginger reclusive rock gods trying to better themselves for their kids are your catnip, try Teacher. If you dig ornery octogenarians with wayward balls who play accidental Cupid to the gay odd couple and dudes who are Forces of Nature, check out Hurricane Reese!

Thank you so much Audra!

Special Talk to Me Thursday, featuring Author AM Halford

 

 

Talk to Thursdays - Meet Author AM Halford

Welcome to Talk to Me Thursday with M/M Romance Author AM Halford!

Confession time! I am frequently as impatient as a child on Christmas morning.  Sad, but true.  Therefore, there will be weeks when I will run Talk to Me Thursdays to  feature another author or person from the Romance Novel industry who I am simply dying to talk with and I don’t want to wait until the next week.

Today is one such Thursday! Shall we begin?

I first encountered AM Halford a few years ago when I was looking to add fresh voices to my fictional worlds.  I was kicking off the Tulsa Immortals series and wanted to make it a multi-author vehicle to offer readers a little sumthin’, sumthin’ for all tastes in paranormal romance.  A mutual friend, Kristina Galbert, suggested AM Halford and I talk.  Via PMs on Facebook and a few calls, we did just that.  We soon discovered that we worked well together, bouncing ideas off each other and the like.  I am so honored to have this young author of Male/Male romance as a part of my Tulsa Immortals universe.  As of the day I am writing this piece, Ms. Halford has two stories in my Tulsa Immortals series; Leo’s Salvation and Coyote’s River, with plans to write at least one more for the series.

AM Halford’s writer voice is fresh and young, yet mature.  Her storylines are exciting, fast-paced and fairly straightforward.  Her love connections between her characters are delightful.  Her humor, a blast to read!

So, let’s MEET AM Halford!

About A.M. Halford in her own words from her page on Amazon.com
I live in Southern Oregon and enjoy spending as much time outside as I possibly can. My partner and I often find ourselves hiking with our two dogs when the weather permits it. Fishing, camping, and photography are also activities I greatly enjoy. If the weather doesn’t permit going outside I like to curl up with a sketch book and draw whatever comes to mind.

I got into writing as an outlet for personal therapy and have since expanded that into a hobby and profession that I enjoy. I often write down anything that comes to mind, combing through the ideas and expanding on plots that sound the most interesting. I like to write believable relations between people overcoming unfair hardships set before them. I always love a happy ending and no matter the hell my characters go through they’ll always get their forever person.

AM Halford Banner

The following are Ms. Halford’s responses to my interview questions.  Enjoy!

Let’s talk about your favorite genre to read? To write?
My favorite genre to read has got to be scifi! Followed closely by paranormal.
I write primarily in the paranormal genre. I enjoy the freedom it allows me and the world building that comes with writing the stories.
What inspired you to write your first book? And, please, tell us about that book.
I was inspired to create ‘A Dragon’s Dream’ by my hikes and fishing trips around southern Oregon. I honestly had the idea for the setting of the book before I had the plot or characters. Jason and Michel came second. What drove me to actually publish my first book was I got fired from my job for telling the boss to fuck off, he was a creep.
Do you have a favorite theme for the stories you read and write?
If I had to pick it would be overcoming hardships. Whether those hardships are large or small, I think it’s great to watch a character grow from page to page. Another would be acceptance, especially if that acceptance leads to finding their HEA.
Let’s talk POV? Which do you prefer and why?
I write in third person because it allows more diversity in voice I think. I enjoy seeing a story from multiple angles, and third person allows that to happen in a more natural way.
What’s on the top of your TBR pile right now?
Honestly, I haven’t had the chance to even look at my TBR pile in weeks. If I had to pick, it would probably be Audra Hart’s next Tulsa Immortals book ❤
Ain’t she cute? 😉

Do you mind sharing the synopsis of your latest story with our readers? Maybe give us a tease to whet our appetites? How did you come up with the idea for this story?
I have multiple stories I’m currently working on, but I think I got something that’ll make you wish I was writing faster.
Warrior Omega: Ragnar, knight of the kingdom comes a far north fief as a merchant’s escort, but also to find a life partner. He’s heard of an undefeated omega, the son of the overseeing lord, and wishes to try his hand and winning the sword wielding omega.
Gunnar, the omega in question, has had his heart broken once and to keep it from happening against declares that he will wed no one that cannot first best him in a one on one duel. So far he’s been able to defeat every suitor that’s come his way, but he is not prepared for Ragnar.
Teaser:
“I welcome you and your men to my home. Kare, Gunnar!”
Biting back the fear he felt seeping into every bone of his body, Gunnar stepped forward with his birthing father. Just like that the tone of the newcomers shifted. All eyes moved from Tobias to Gunnar and his skin prickled with unease. He hated this!
Magnus took Kare’s hand as soon as he could and Gunnar remained back a step. “This is my mate, Kare, and our son, Gunnar.”
With the prompting, Gunnar raised his eyes to the people staring openly at him. He straightened his back and met each of their wide eyed expression with confidence he didn’t entirely feel. When he finally locked eyes with Ragnar something changed in the air. There was no rejection in the man’s eyes. No confusion. If anything Ragnar looked pleased by the announcement.
Gunnar’s instincts told him to take a step back. To flee the presence of such a man.
Ragnar dismounted and approached Gunnar. With effort he maintained his ground and let the knight take his hand. “A pleasure, Gunnar,” the rough man said surprisingly gently, before placing a kiss to Gunnar’s open palm.
Warmth spread up his arm and started down his body. Removing his hand from Ragnar’s Gunnar threw up his defenses and glared at the knight. “Lord Gunnar is my title, knight.”
Tobias chuckled behind him while everyone else gawked.
“Of course, my mistake,” Ragnar easily recovered.

Wow!  This sounds wonderful.  *Crack* That’s the whip cracking to get Ms. Halford writing faster!

Can we talk about character development? Do you have a set process for developing your characters? Do you plot them out ahead of time or do they develop as you write the story?
I do a quick plot outline which my characters and story follow throughout the book, but for the most part their development takes place as I write. When I do try and plot out the development ahead of time I find it comes off artificial. As for their personalities, that is entirely my characters. Take Gunnar from above, he’s a self-assured but guarded man, with reason. Ragnar is just self-assured and cocky, with a gentle nature when directed at those he cares about.

AM Halford Follow Me Graphic
Please talk to us about where readers can find you on social media and where they can find your books. Maybe share a bit about your top 3 favorite books?

I can be found on multiple social media sites, a list of which I’ve provided below. All of my books can be found on my amazon page, as well as my website.
As for my top 3 favorite books, that’s a hard one. Dragonsong and its sequel Dragonsinger by Anne McCaffrey have got to be first, with Dragonsong being just a bit ahead. Longest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz, would be number two. And in third place Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice.

Mellanie Szereto – Talk to Me Tuesday

Welcome to Talk To Me Tuesdays w Mellanie Szereto

Welcome to Talk to Me Tuesday

with Mellanie Szereto!

 

I met Mellanie recently when I helped organize an autism awareness event on Facebook last month.  She and I chatted a bit, and we seemed to bond a bit over our love of books and the fact that we are both mothers to sons on the autism spectrum of disorders.

During our brief interactions, I found Mellanie to be knowledgeable, engaging, and just a general delight!  When I decided to begin doing these spots on Tuesdays, I was thrilled that Mellanie agreed to answer my questionnaire.

From her author page on Amazon.com

When her fingers aren’t attached to her keyboard, Mellanie Szereto enjoys hiking, Pilates, cooking, gardening, and researching for her stories. Many times, the research partners with her other hobbies, taking her from the Hocking Hills region in Ohio to the Colorado Rockies and the Adirondacks of New York. Sometimes, the trip is no farther than her garden for ingredients and her kitchen to test recipes for her latest steamy tale. Mellanie makes her home in rural Indiana with her husband of thirty-two years and their son. She is a 2016 recipient of the RWA Service Award, RWA Chapter Advisor, and a member of Romance Writers of America, Aged to Perfection SRWA, Contemporary Romance Writers, FF&P Romance Writers, Indiana RWA, and NEORWA.

 

Let’s talk about your favorite genre to read?  To write?

I’m not sure I can pick a favorite! I enjoy reading mystery, historical fiction and nonfiction, women’s fiction, and most subgenres of romance—almost everything. While I write a lot of contemporary and erotic romance, I also like to write historical, paranormal, and romantic suspense. My to- write/rewrite/edit list is quite extensive and includes every one those romance subgenres!

What inspired you to write your first book?  And, please, tell us about that book.

I’ve always loved to read and write, and my first full-length novel provided a little escapism from raising my autistic son. When I was pregnant with him, my doctor discovered I have anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome (an autoimmune disorder related to lupus), so the main character in that story gave me an opportunity to explore the fears I had during my pregnancy. Although I had no symptoms, APAS often results in recurrent miscarriages and its diagnosis usually occurs in relation to a miscarriage. My doctor was shocked that I hadn’t miscarried in the first trimester when he made the diagnosis at 20 weeks. Miracle baby!

The heroine in Spoken For had a miscarriage from an unplanned pregnancy and suffered the severe complications that can happen with APAS—organ shutdown. Another pregnancy would mean risking her life, but no other man has filled the empty place in her heart left by her former lover so it hasn’t mattered. She connects with and decides to adopt a young orphan girl who hasn’t spoken since the car accident that killed her parents. The former lover returns to town, hoping to rekindle their longtime friendship and romantic relationship. By accident, he finds out about the pregnancy. They must overcome the heartbreaking secret she kept from him and his reactionary accusation that she chose to end the pregnancy. This book is in the rewrite column of my to-do list, but it will see the light of day as part of a planned series in 2020.

Do you have a favorite theme for the stories you read and write?

My favorite theme is family. It’s part of almost every story I write and it’s my favorite theme to read! I also enjoy reading and writing about coming home, healing from emotional trauma, and cooking/food.

Let’s talk POV?  Which do you prefer and why?

I prefer alternating third-person POV in past tense because it gives me insight into the main characters GMC (goals, motivation, and conflict) and allows for deep POV without the complications first-person can create.

What’s on the top of your TBR pile right now?

When I finish my current work-in-progress (the first book in a new nerd series, featuring main characters on the autism spectrum), I’m rewarding myself with a first-time read of Insert Groom Here by K.M. Jackson and a reread of at least one of Vicki Lewis Thompson’s nerd books!

Do you mind sharing the synopsis of your latest story with our readers? Maybe give us a tease to whet our appetites?  How did you come up with the idea for this story?

Flavor of the Day is my most recent release and is the final book in the Love on the Menu…Extra Hot series. I created the title and decided on a gelato shop setting long before I knew the characters. One day, they started talking to me, fully formed and their internal conflicts clear.

Mellanie Szereto - Flavor of the Day

Here’s the blurb and a short excerpt:

Hot tempers. Hotter attraction.

Roma Denata prefers spending her time inventing new flavors at her gelato shop and scratching her sexual itch on the run. Unfortunately, her annoying new landlord is a rash that won’t go away, no matter how often they take their clashes to an unexpected level. And more than her Italian temper reaches the boiling point.

A temporary return to his hometown forces Lucas Calloway to rethink his reasons for avoiding emotional ties. His tenant makes him want more than a daily dose of sleeping with the enemy, and revealing his own disturbing secret is the perfect way to convince her to share hers.

Guilt has destroyed Roma’s appetite for love and trust seems beyond her ability—even when Lucas’s revelation uncovers a common bond. Melting her heart is a challenge he must accept, but the collateral damage inflicted from events of the past may be too much to overcome.

Excerpt:

She sorted through her keys as she stepped onto the sidewalk and gave the chauvinistic loser her back. Between him and Cliff, they’d all but cured her of any craving for real sex, at least for today. She inserted the key into the deadbolt and twisted until the tumbler clicked into the unlock position. “I need more batteries and fewer men in my life.”

The second lock stuck until she yanked upward on the door handle and tapped the lower corner of the door with the toe of her hiking boot. Although her actions probably looked like a frustrated effort to the casual observer, growing up with a locksmith father had taught her a few tricks to customize the security of the front door to her business.

“Need help?”

She blew out a noisy breath as she pushed inside. The last thing she needed was assistance from the alpha-tistical pig parked next to her. “Clearly not.”

“You’re Roma Denata?” His shadow, but not the swine himself, followed her through the doorway. “The sweet little ice-cream maker Glenn Frasier told me about?”

Whirling around to face the intruder, she positioned a key between her fingers as a makeshift weapon. Glenn, you’re getting a boot up the ass the next time I see you. I don’t give a shit if you are my landlord. “I’m not sweet and it’s gelato, not ice cream. Everybody’s little compared to your ego. State your business and go away.”

The suit looked down at her and shook his head, but his perfectly mussed brown hair didn’t budge. Amusement danced on his full kissable lips. “He didn’t mention the chip on your shoulder is bigger than you are.”

Smack-able, maybe, but not kissable. The fact that he was more than a foot taller than her and had rubbed her nose in it gave her reason enough to send him packing. “Fuck you.”

His derisive snort added to her instant dislike of him. “I’m meeting Glenn here at eight, so if you want fucked, it’ll have to be a quickie, little bit.”

Can we talk about character development?  Do you have a set process for developing your characters?  Do you plot them out ahead of time or do they develop as you write the story?

I wish I had a process! Some characters pop into my head fully developed, some reveal themselves in their first appearance in the story, and some are very good at keeping secrets until the right moment comes along. That said, I’m usually a pantser. However, I have successfully plotted parts of a few books. Oh, and my characters have told me to find them new names a few times too.

Please talk to us about where readers can find you on social media and where they can find your books.  Maybe share a bit about your top 3 favorite books?

The top 3 favorite books I’ve written …

1) Flavor of the Day (see above) – I love this story because Roma and Lucas are so focused on their own faults and keeping people at arm’s length that they don’t realize they’re falling for each other. They find true love in their late thirties!

2) Egging Her On – Despite their all-business exteriors, Lindie and Blaine both have their soft spots—her for family and animals, and him for his nephews. They’re also older characters!

Blurb:

Haunted by her traumatic childhood, forty-year-old Lindie Brewster finds a measure of peace living alone in rural Ohio with her chickens and gardens to keep her company. Living life on her own terms has gone off without a hitch, until her sexy new neighbor threatens to ruin everything.

Divorcee and reconfirmed bachelor Blaine Stockwell has always had a life plan, and regaining possession of his grandparents’ farm is at the top of his priority list, in addition to being a good father to his nephews. When his lawyer’s generous offers don’t convince the current owner to sell, a little reconnaissance is in order.

Finding Lindie naked in the backyard tempts Blaine to enjoy another kind of arrangement while searching for a solution to their standoff. A no-strings affair improves both their dispositions until a more-than-business proposal and the past threaten to scramble their newly hatched feelings for each other.

3) Just Desserts – I adore this second chances story! Meg and Aidan let me mix a lot of humor with their sexual tension.

Blurb:

After fifteen years, librarian Meg Graham returns to her hometown to appease her family and reopen the local library. First, the neighbor’s dog steals her underwear. Then its owner, the boy who stole her heart in high school, shows up on her doorstep and does his best to woo her with baked delights. She has no intention of falling for the pie-baking Casanova again, no matter how sweet his desserts or how hot the attraction between them.

Aidan Rourke’s uncle has promised him ownership of the family bakery if Aidan marries before his 34th birthday. When the only woman he ever truly loved—the one who got away—moves back to town, he pulls out all the stops to recapture her heart. He has only three weeks to convince her of his love and march her down the aisle before she discovers the truth about his uncle’s blackmail scheme.

Top 3 all-time favorite books I’ve read:

1) The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle—Because who doesn’t love Sherlock Holmes!!!)

2) Misty of Chincoteague (and all the other books in this series) by Marguerite Henry—I remember borrowing these books from the bookmobile when I was in elementary school.

3) The Velvet Room by Zilpha Keatley Snyder—This story has always stuck with me. The daughter of a migrant worker finds an abandoned house with a velvet room, a place she can escape to!

 

 

 

“Talk to Me Tuesdays” kicks off tomorrow!

Talk to Me Tuesday graphic

I am always excited to meet new authors, bloggers, promoters, PAs, VAs, dedicated reviewers, and a host of other fascinating folks who work so hard to make the world of publishing, especially romance genres, work so well.  Starting tomorrow, I will kick off a series of interviews and spotlights where I will introduce my readers to these wonderful folks.  I am so excited to begin this project because I love supporting my fellow writers and those who support the author community.

The first several weeks will be dedicated to a wonderful group of authors I met when R.L. Merrill, Kathleen Banks and I organized a big two day Facebook author event to promote autism awareness and acceptance during the last weekend of April 2019.  We managed to recruit a large number of talented and generous authors who all had a real life ASD (autism spectrum disorder) connection.  Of course, many of us bonded over issues important to ASD families and educators, as well as our mutual love of books – the reading and the writing of them!

So, be sure to keep an eye open for this exciting new feature on audrahart.com.  You never know when you might meet your next favorite writer, right?

Starting tomorrow, I will kick of “Talk to Me Tuesdays” off with interviews with authors A.M. Halford and Mellanie Szereto.  We’d love to hear from you, so feel free to reach out on our media links or here on this blog.  Make plans to get cozy with a cuppa and get to know some new friends.

Join us, won’t you?
