Hello,

We have an interview today with Anthony Aaron Richards, author of A Transfer of Vengeance – Volume 3 – The Switch Pops.

Best,

Vincent Lowry

Interview:

1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)? 

Anthony Aaron La Forgia – Florida 

2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre? 

A Transfer of Vengeance Volume 3 – Mystery 

3) What is the book about?  

A young female Architect, who finds out she has a sister no one has told her about and just after they meet – the sister is murdered. Raven is taken to the crime scene by the FBI and New Orleans Police were she has a psychological break – and she begins the hunt for the person that killed her sister, finds him, dates him, and kills him – Raven never expected to become a serial killer chasing other serial killers. She finds a strange connection between the serial killers and her and Sara’s bizarre past. When the family secrets finally come out of the summer cabin, no woman is safe…  

4) Where did you come up with the idea? 

I’m a retired Counselor, dealing with women and the abuses they endured and helped them get free and start new lives – I guess it’s my way of fighting back for all the Didn’t Make It’s out there. 

5) How long did it take you to write it? 

Well, it’s a seven-book series – still going, I came up with an idea for each book to have four volumes (quick reads) which keeps a good pace. I’m in book one – volumes 1 & 2 are published and volume 3 will be out next week. I do have book 2 done, book 3 almost complete and sections of the rest in progress. 

6) Did you learn anything from the project? 

OMG – The world of human trafficking is one hell of a dark road – I had to find a way to bring it to the forefront in a different way – I was told my subject was a hard one for publishers. 

7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video? 

Yes, website – aarichardswrites.com and use Instagram (tony.laforgia.7) for what I call Story Pic’s, it my own art that relates to the books – and I give little hints as to what’s happening. 

8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists?  

  1. Set a time to write that fits you and stick to it. 
  1. Always have an editor, that you can work with – always, always… 
  1. Don’t go cheap on your cover 

9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work? 

Actually, I read a little of everything – including Childrens and Sci-Fi – feed the mind with as much imagination as possible. I started writing children’s stories when I began.  

10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?  

Allen Folsom/Day of Confession, for some reason it hooked me, and I couldn’t stop – good story and writing. But the big but is John Grisham, I read Folsom first and the next book I picked up was one by Mr. Grisham. Through his books (which I read everyone I get my hands on at the time, early 90’s) I learned that you could have a cause and fight for it in your stories. Thanks to him my world opened.  

11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind? 

A six-pound Chihuahua Terrier mix – I call her my assistant. 

12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what kind and how do you like it? 

Well, I fought it at first, I was hard on HARD COPY… but I’m also a junior techie and have an iPad/iPhone/Mac – I love the ability to pull up a book at any time and READ, READ, READ…

Interview with L.D. Wosar, Author of the Kit Weston Chronicles

41OwBuKtvyL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Hello,

Today’s interview is with L.D. Wosar, author of the Kit Weston Chronicles.

Please see below.

Best,

-Vincent Lowry

 

Interview:

1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?
     L. D. Wosar and I live in Nevada
2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?
    I have a series out – the Kit Weston Chronicles.  Crooked Halo and the Badge: Volume I;  Wight Angel:  Volume II;  Frayed Wings: Volume III.  They are in the Western genre
3) What is the book about?
    The series is about a nearly condemned outlaw girl whose life changed after given the ultimatum of getting hanged or getting married.  Obviously, she chose the latter or there would not have been a series of three books.  However, there is a woman, Sophie Wilson,  who has a prophecy of getting rid of the Mueller family who brought her family down and Kit must stop Sophie before she makes her prophecy come true.
4) Where did you come up with the idea?
    I had come up with the idea years ago to write a Western, taking place in Tehachapi, California – a place that still lives in my heart.  I toyed with so many ideas and finally, this one just fell into place due to the inspiration of family members and my granddaughter gave me the inspiration for the villain, which thank goodness, the real Sophie is the polar opposite of the woman I wrote. 
5) How long did it take you to write it?
    It was a few years in the making, but in all honesty, it took me at least 2 months to write it once the story came to fruition.  I know authors spend years writing a single book, but this one just happened naturally and I was obsessed with getting the story written.  
6) Did you learn anything from the project?
    What I did learn was my brand, I write Western Action novels.   I learned I am terrible at writing romance, for I flourish at writing action and conflict.  I also learned I will never write hardcore sex novels because those are the worst written chapters in these books.  Most importantly, I learned to become a master at self-editing, although a few snafus had fallen through the cracks here and there. 
7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video?
    I do have a site:  http://www.crookedwightwings.com   
    I have been toying with the idea of making a videocast, I just do not have the know-how to do it or the equipment.  There is a podcast that I post in the Facebook group called KitCast.  
    May, I also mention that Crooked Halo and the Badge is available on audiobook.  Wight Angel is close to going live and my superstar narrator, Justin Mills, is recording Frayed Wings at present moment.  
8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists?
    Writing is the easy part of the process, but to be successful – make sure you have a perfectly formatted book and edit with a fine-tooth comb.  I don’t have a billion dollars to pay for editing and publishing, so it’s been done on my own.   Also, give the readers what they want and don’t leave them hanging.  I learned on ‘Wight Angel’ that a cliff-hanger ending wasn’t as successful as I thought it would be.  
    For editors, I have no idea; honestly, I have yet to work with one.  But cover artists, I did my own covers.  Make a cover that pops and that people will notice first thing.  A book cover is kind of like food – presentation is everything.  
9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work?
    I typically love Mystery and Suspense – mostly James Patterson, who has always been an inspiration to me.   Of course, I am open to reading new authors and reviewing their work. 
10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?
    I would really have to say Cross Country by James Patterson.  This book had the intensity and the brutality, so well written – of course, it is by the master himself. 
11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?
    I have 1 pup – an amazingly calm, lazy, funny and super smart American Pit Bull Terrier named Kane after Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks.  
12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what kind and how do you like it?
    I use my iPad as my electronic reading device – utilizing Kindle, of course.

Marta Cleans Up by Cyndia Rios-Myers

Chicago-based maid – Marta Morales – is tired of feeling irrelevant and being treated that way. She’s a thirty-nine-year-old divorcee. Her son is gone. She hates her ex-husband. She cannot stand her co-workers and the rest of her family lives in Puerto Rico and. That leaves a bit of a vacuum for human interaction. That quickly changes when Marta cleans out the recently vacated law office of an attorney at a fancy law firm. A forgotten cell phone contains incriminating video that both scares and excites Marta. She does the right thing by advising the law firm of the video and even talking to the cops about it. While nervous about the criminals she saw in the video, as well as the police officers asking her questions she cannot answer, she thinks she has things figured out. What she doesn’t expect is the treachery coming from the cleaning company she works with, as well as the attentions of two very attractive police detectives. Her feelings of irrelevance quickly disappear when she finds herself using talents she’d shelved long ago – those of a woman who used to be a police officer.
