Fridays 5 with Shari Sakurai

Shari Sakurai was born in Chichester, West Sussex, United Kingdom. After completing secondary school she moved away from further education to work in administration.

Shari is very interested in other countries’ cultures and mythology; in particular Japan. Japanese themes and influences can often be found in her work.

Shari's debut novel Demon's Blood was released in ebook format on 25th January 2014. She has participated and won the National Novel Writing Month challenge for the past eight years.

1.) When did you first get serious about writing?
I’ve always loved to write since I was a child, but I only got really serious about writing for publication about six years ago. I’d wanted to publish a novel since I left school, but there were other things in my life that had to take priority and it’s only been in recent years that I’ve been able to realise my dream.

2.) What is the hardest part for you about writing?
I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my writing and so I find it hard to stop tweaking and re-wording things.

Immortal blood is precious and Kokawa Taku’s makes him especially unique.
After vampire hunters force them to flee Tokyo, Taku and his lover, Thane, try to make a new life for themselves in England. But three months later Thane is still tormented by nightmares of the fire that almost cost them their lives. This leads to carelessness and the discovery of one of his victims.

When faced with threats from all sides Taku tries his best to protect them although his actions are met with disapproval and anger from Thane. Unknown to his lover, Taku is also struggling to keep hidden the truth of what really happened three months ago.

However, it is only a matter of time before Taku’s past and bloodline catches up with him.

3.) How did you feel upon publication of your first completed project?
Publishing a novel has always been my dream and at first it seemed almost surreal for it to finally become a reality. After it had sunk in that I’d actually done it I felt so pleased and proud of myself. I also felt some apprehension about whether or not people would enjoy what I’d written. For me publishing a novel is like putting a part of myself out there and I was nervous about the feedback I’d receive – thankfully the majority of it so far has been positive and lovely!  

4.) What is more important to you, story, or character? Why?
It’s difficult, but I’d say characters. They are the life of the story, the ones driving it forward. Without great characters the reader can’t relate to what they’re going through or form any kind of emotional attachment to the novel.

5.) What is a typical day like in your world?
I get up and check my emails before getting ready and going to work. When I get home I try to write every night after dinner, even if it’s just a paragraph. I then check my various social media accounts, emails and then unwind before bed by playing Sims on the laptop or Pokémon on my 3DS!

Fridays 5 with Kirsten McKenzie

Kirsten McKenzie has worked in her family's antique store since she was a toddler, where she has gone from being allowed to sell 50c postcards in the corner of Antique Alley, a literal treasure trove, to selling $5,000 Worcester vases. This is her first novel, and traverses London, India and New Zealand. She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband and two children.

1.) When did you first get serious about writing?

A.) When my youngest child was about to start school, and my family started harassing me about what I was going to do with my 'spare time'. Although I was already working part time in my family's antique shop, I'd always wanted to write a book, to leave a little piece of me behind so to speak (other than children), so I sat down and wrote a book.

2.) What is the hardest part for you about writing?

A.) Avoiding the Internet. I sit down at my laptop, fully intending to write until my fingers bleed, but then I get sucked down the Twitter rabbit hole, something interesting pops up on Facebook, or I find a fascinating article about writing on a website somewhere.

Click on cover for more info or to order!

Synopsis: Following the unexplained disappearance of her parents, and in a last ditch attempt to save the antique store she has inherited from financial ruin, Sarah Lester takes on a deceased estate. Amongst the estate is a collection of fifteen vintage postcards. Sarah is unprepared for what these postcards hint at about their reclusive former owner, and soon they complicate her life in unimaginable ways. Traversing three continents and two centuries, where tiger hunts and ruby necklaces are irrevocably entwined with murders and mysteries, auction houses and antiquities, Sarah is drawn into the enigma that could solve her parents' disappearance.

3.) How did you feel upon publication of your first completed project?

A.) Surreal. It still feels surreal.

4.) What is more important to you, story, or character? Why?

A.) The story. The story has to be balanced between good and bad. There has to be a level of "Oh no!", and "Oh yes!" to keep the reader's attention. Of course the characters are equally important, but how can you fully love a character (or hate them), if the story doesn't grip you? A reader can overlook a clunky dialogue between characters every now and then, but they will never forgive you for writing a dire story, with no ebb and flow. Reader's want to be taken hold of, their faces glued to their pages or kindles.

5.) What is a typical day like in your world?

A.)  Get up. Make coffee. Get the children up and off to school. Come home. Have another coffee. Procrastinate on the Internet. Do some laundry or housework. Have another coffee. Realise its lunchtime. Eat lunch. Followed by coffee. Panic that its 1pm already. Actually start writing. Get into the writing mood, then in a really frustrated way, save all the work I've done, and  pick up the kids from school. Think about writing after they've gone to bed. Actually drink wine and procrastinate on the Internet.

Coming soon: The Ballerina and the Revolutionary

Coming Friday January 22, 2016

From Carmilla Voiez 

Excerpt -

Portraits loomed over my head. I shrank beneath the weight of their stares. My ears grasped echoes of resentful whispers and I hung my head in shame. Ashamed of what? I couldn’t remember, not really, perhaps it was purely that I wasn’t more like her.

I faced her door, shaking with fear, expecting her to rush out at any moment, screaming my name or slapping my face. I concentrated on my breathing, trying in vain to calm down. I was grown up now. She couldn’t hurt me anymore.

Mastering my fear, I opened her bedroom door and inspected the empty room. Vivienne’s huge bed crouched in the corner like a monster ready to pounce. Shadows lingered at the edges, a dark audience to mother’s regular performances. The air smelt stale. It reeked of old perfume, sweat and sex.

I marched to the wardrobe and opened the door. Frills burst forth from its bowels. I moved soft, delicate fabrics and checked behind them. No one lurked there. I pulled back the curtains and opened a window. Sunlight poured through the smeared glass, bouncing off Vivienne’s full-length mirror and flooding the room.

Breathing slower now, I sheathed my knife and strolled to the bedroom door. Already the air smelled fresher. I turned around as I reached the hallway, glancing back at the rich fabrics and heavily patterned wallpaper - a true boudoir, a shrine to her pleasure. I sighed and moved to walk away when something caught my eye. Turning back to the room, I watched as the décor altered.

 Subtly at first - the colour of the light-shade, a change of carpet then everything looked different. And there was Mother, centre stage, on the bed, naked, legs splayed and mounted by a huge man. Her flushed face fixed on me and I was a terrified ten-year-old girl once more.

‘What do you think you’re staring at?’ Vivienne demanded.

‘Maybe she wants to join in,’ the oily-voiced stranger suggested.

5* review by Sheri A Wilkinson - “A well written story, filled with emotions. The vivid details made me feel as if I were experiencing life throw Crow's eyes. The story was very original, just when I thought I might have things figured out a new twist or surprise would surface. I recommend to those who like a good dramatic story with a twist of paranormal.”

5* review by Z. V. Adams - “A hauntingly beautiful, poetic read.”

4* review by Jef Rouner - “The mystery of the house and the bad things done there will keep you turning the page, but it's the beautifully flawed gender-queer uniqueness of Crow that will carry you along.”

5* review by Christina Escamilla - “The duality of dreams and the waking world really plays off into Crow's own introspection and how she begins to unfold buried secrets. There is the known versus the subversive that is almost rhythmic as you continue to learn more and more. Would definitely recommend!”

5* review by snscuster - “With her superb writing and understanding of her characters, Carmilla Voiez has brought light to a situation of tragedy and triumph so well that I think it should be considered required reading for high school students and beyond.”

5* review by Kate Marie Robbins - “It is by far the most intriguing, interesting, and unexpected book I have ever read. I couldn't put it down.”

Walking away, persistence and writing what you know.

Writing is really the only thing I've found I'm any good at, and I'm basing that on the reviews my work has received so far. That's not to say I don't have other talents. I'm  a woodworker with a fully equipped wood shop in my basement. I even have a wood lathe. I'm also an experienced carpenter, but at fifty seven my days of swinging a twenty two ounce framing hammer all day are behind me.

I want to get back into making things with my hands, spending a little time each day in the wood shop building little projects for around the house. I also work a full time job in retail which gives me a limited amount of time each day to do the things I love.

I've noticed lately that I have been spending an inordinate amount of my time on Facebook and Twitter as I try to get my sales moving again, nothing is working, leading me to finally come to the conclusion, for me at least, that Twitter and Facebook are time sinks that offer very little in return.

I'm really more of a lurker anyway, scrolling down the page checking out what my writer friends are up to , maybe liking this or that status update and not much else. I once said Facebook was such a time sink because it's human nature to scroll to the bottom of the page, has anyone else noticed there is no bottom of the page on facebook, it just goes on and on indefinitely as long as you're willing to keep scrolling down.

This isn't to say I'm leaving FB forever, or even Twitter for that matter. I'm just working to curtail my time spent with either one, I'm walking away in a sense, refocusing my priorities.
With the holidays behind us I can now focus on getting back on track with my writing. Last year was not a good one for me writing wise. I only managed to release one book for the entire year, though I had planed to release three. As a result my sales for the year were abysmal, but from what I've read I'm not alone, sales for many other writers in the horror genre were also flat. It's just one of those things we have very little control over.

It has been said insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result each time. Following that line of reasoning it would be a safe bet to assume that writers are an insane bunch.We keep putting our work out there hoping for a different result each time.

I'm not going to quit writing though.

I still have a multitude of stories percolating around in my head waiting to escape onto the page. I just have to work smarter with what time I have available to get more writing done. Which goes back to wasting less time on those activities that are not moving me forward. I will keep the blog going, posting new releases and the Fridays 5 interviews. But I'm going to quit beating myself up over not publishing a personal post every week. I'm reducing my personal goal to one post per month which  will naturally be about my writing and this crazy journey through the publishing process.

I recently read a blog post from a new writer who was expounding upon the need to break the rules of writing. To me there is only one rule to writing. You write, a rule I have repeatedly broken this past year.

This writer went on to explain that writing only what you knew would restrict one to writing only about those things one knew about. Plumbers only writing about plumbing, so to speak. I believe he and many of the other writers I've seen lately going on about this little caveat are missing the entire point.

Write what you know, means exactly what it implies. If you grew up as a fan of science fiction, with little interest in romance or spy thrillers, why as a writer would you attempt to write a romance novel? You wouldn't, you would write what you know. As a fan you know Sci-Fi, so it's only natural that you would write in that genre. Seems simple enough to me, but what do I know, I'm just an old guy with a passion for the horror genre.

Tell me, what do you think Write what you know, means?

Fridays 5 with J.D. Dudycha

J.D. Dudycha is a former college baseball player and coach. He has over ten years of experience in baseball at the collegiate level. After the birth of his son in 2012, J.D. retired from coaching to be a stay-at-home dad. Since his retirement, he developed a love for writing, an outlet he so desperately needed in the absence of baseball. Though his stories are fictional, he has drawn from his personal life as well as his expertise and knowledge of the game to craft his novel. J.D. lives with his wife and son in Denver, Colorado, where he also enjoys golf and fly fishing.

1.) When did you first get serious about writing?

A.)  About four years ago…I know, I know, it doesn't seem that long ago. The first piece I actually wrote was a YA novel about a young boy who loses his mother and immerses himself inside his own fictional tales to cope. Sounds a bit hokey, huh? In fact, I learned quite a bit from that experience. I wrote into dozens of agents looking for representation, and quickly thought I wasn't good enough. I was like, what? No one wants to buy this masterpiece of American literature, what a crock. It turned out to be the best thing to happen to me. Fast forward two years later and I felt called to write “Paint the Black.” My background has always been and will forever be tied to baseball. But I am also a broken down child of God, who has done so many wrongs in his life that I figured I could make quite a story if I combined the two.   

2.) What is the hardest part for you about writing?

A.)  Taking me out of the equation. Since I now write mostly sports fiction, and my background is in baseball, I find it hard to disassociate myself from each of my character’s scenes. Also I find it hard to find the time. With a three-year-old at home and another on the way, sometimes it is difficult for me to put pen to paper.

Every boy who picks up a glove dreams of playing in the big leagues. Only a few are actually good enough to make the grade.

With a ninety-eight mile-per-hour fastball and a devastating slider, eighteen-year-old Jack Burke was a baseball phenom. Picked in the first round, his future as a superstar seemed destined. Nothing could stop the kid—except himself. His childhood dream of a baseball life would turn into a nightmare marked by injury, immaturity, and personal tragedy. After just a couple years of minor-league ball, he found himself on the outside of the diamond. He asked the question he never imagined, “What will my life be without baseball?”

Paint the Black is about pitching—and living—on the edge where decisions have consequences. But it's never too late to start over again. 

3.) How did you feel upon publication of your first completed project?

A.)  I was overjoyed, and not in the way you would expect a writer to be overjoyed. Honestly I was so sick of the writes and rewrites of the novel. I just wanted someone other than me and my editor to see my manuscript. I wrote the story with the end reader in mind. My debut novel, was for them. My hope is that it can effect their lives in a positive manner.

4.) What is more important to you, story, or character? Why?

A.)  Character’s…they are who the reader falls in love with. Even if it is a milieu story, where the world takes over, I believe that if the character's aren’t strong enough to move the story along, the reader will soon find themselves out of the book and onto the next. In every good story it is about what the character goes through, or what they have to overcome, the story is secondary.

5.) What is a typical day like in your world?

A.) I am a stay-at-home-dad… so no two days are alike, but I typically get my writing in during my son's nap time. When I am in the process of writing my novels I usually try to write 1,000 words per day. I am also an avid golfer and if I ever experience writer's block I head to the course for some much needed therapy. It’s a place I can clear my head and find inspiration.

Fridays 5 with Geri Taylor

I wrote, actually, drew my first storybook during my preschool years about a troll who lived under a bridge, as trolls tend to do, in an unkempt cave. One day, a cute little lady troll came along and changed his life completely. He fell in love and allowed her to transform him into a kind gentleman who lived in a clean and lovely home, albeit still under a bridge, as trolls tend to do.

In many films, writers are stereotypically portrayed seated at their uncluttered desk inserting a fresh sheet of paper into their typewriter and then staring dismally at the glaring white emptiness of the page before them. I rarely look at the blankness before me with dismay. The stories are always there. I just wish I could type as fast as the story unfolds and not make so many typos. Even though the tap-tap of old-fashioned typewriter keys are a melodic symphony to a writer's ear most writers these days open a word processing program on a laptop and hit "file" then "new" and their fingers dance to the dull clicks of their keyboards. Either way, I love that sound!

My life as of late has not been ideal for writing and the characters of my stories nag at me like Luigi Pirandello's Sei Personaggi in Cerca d'Autore (Six Characters in Search of an Author) at the most inconvenient times wanting to know why their stories have not been written. I enjoy performing on stage and the process of acting in films but I owe it to my characters to return to the dull clicks of my laptop because I am the only one who can write their stories. I look forward to other people reading them.
1.) When did you first get serious about writing?

A.) I took college courses in playwriting in 20o2-2003 where I wrote plays and screenplays. Following the advice of my college professor, using my plays and screenplays as my stories, he recommended I publish them as stories first.

2.) What is the hardest part for you about writing?

A.) Editing!

Synopsis: According to Rene Descartes, no two bodies can occupy the same space at the same time and any physical motion of a body involves moving other bodies from the space they occupy. In my first work of contemporary fiction, Joule and Allen create their own movements in The Kitchen Dance. Joule Dalton, lived her life choreographed by her loved ones until a tragedy forces her to learn her own steps. Allen Brooks has endured his own share of manipulations and all his hard work and sacrifice has left him with nothing. He wears his troubles like the too large overcoat he picked up at a mission while living on the streets. This coat brings them together in an unexpected way. He makes a choice, one that Joule cannot begrudge. Allen struggles with his decision while Joule goes back to her old life until they both realize what they really want.

3.) How did you feel upon publication of your first completed project?

A.) It did not go as I had hoped. My experience has caused me to consider self-publishing in the future.

4.) What is more important to you, story, or character? Why?

A.) As an actress, I would say character. If they are “real” and “believable”, the story will tell itself.

5.) What is a typical day like in your world?

A.)  Depends on the day!
During the school year, I substitute teach, so many days are met with an early morning phone call to let me know where I am needed. I actually love this job. I can’t say it pays well…but neither has writing.
I spend some evenings at the theater at rehearsals. On my “days off”, I have been working on renovating my lake house while trying to keep my own house in order.
I find I have less time to actually write these days with most of my time designated for writing spent working on my own blog “The Delete Key" or promoting The Kitchen Dance.
I also read A LOT! And I post reviews when I can.
