The Radio Murders by Kelly Marshall

Attention crime readers. Here's an author whose books you might want to get to know, including The Radio Murders, which has just been re-released. Here is her story behind the story.


Writing is a lonely profession. We authors often sit up late in the night while our spouses, children and, in my case, grandchild have all gone to bed. Frequently tired after a day full of activity, it’s the quiet time when we can think, imagine, and write without interruption. It was my desire to connect with my reader that prompted me to start a blog. I fought the idea for some time. I kept thinking, how in the world will I ever find the time to add one more thing to my exploding schedule? My decision to write a blog was prompted by that need to reach out and connect with those individuals who inspire me and share their thoughts with me—just like they did on my radio shows.

It’s been a few years since I sat at a microphone and communicated with listeners on my radio show Lights Out in Seattle. Back then I worked for KLSY for several years. Another radio station wined and dined me and wooed me away, and I went to work for Warm 106.9, also in Seattle. Management named my new show Love Songs. I thoroughly enjoyed the magic of nighttime radio. The lights in the studio would be soft and low; I could look through my studio windows and see the city lights sparkling in the dark waters of Puget Sound. The real magic though was the conversations with my listeners. I treasured their stories of love and devotion and yes, even their tales of painful losses. One conversation sticks in my mind with crystal clarity. The caller was from Vancouver, BC. Her family had been in a horrific car accident that night and she was waiting to hear whether they were going to live or die. She called my show to ask for support from my Lights Out listeners. I was humbled that she thought of us to help her through her desperation.

I left radio in 2002 and decided to get a “real” job. You know, one of those with fantastic benefits. It was a difficult transition because I missed the heartfelt sharing I had in radio. I decided to write in my spare time to ease some of the boredom I felt with the job that paid my bills. From the time I could barely read, I had a feeling I would communicate in the world with the written word. I started writing and haven’t stopped. I have written four novels: Black Phoenix, an apocalyptic thriller, The Chair, a sweet romance for the mature set, The Radio Murders, the first in a series of crime mysteries set in Seattle, and 6 White Roses, the second in that series. Currently, I am very close to finishing the third Seattle murder mystery, Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die.

I recently changed publishers and am very pleased to announce that I am now with White Bird Publishing. The transition from one publisher to another can be complicated, so all of my books had to be taken off the Internet and reformatted. The freshly edited, new edition of The Radio Murders debuts August 16th.



Kelly's Bio:
I always thought I would communicate in the world as a writer. As a child I was a voracious reader, and knew someday I would pen a great novel. It was my calling. But life sometimes takes left turns and I went to broadcasting school instead of a four-year college.  I did spent thirty years having fun, spinning records, interviewing people, doing love song dedications. I had a ball until…Congress passed a law in 1996 allowing broadcast corporations to own multiple radio stations in one market. Well, the gobbling began and soon behemoths corporations ate up radio stations like locusts in a wheat field. Radio announcers like me were axed on bloody Fridays with surgical precision. I left radio, went to work for the US Federal Government, and in my private hours, began doing what I really loved doing—writing.  
Thank you for the gift of your time. I look forward to hearing from you.

Suspense vs Mystery

Back in the day identifying a fiction book genre was simple. The choices were limited to romance, suspense, mystery, comedy, historical, western, etc. Most were identified with one word. Now, it is almost impossible to classify a book's genre using only one word, as so many sub-categories have been created, originally to facilitate search engine keywords.

A lot of people don't seem to know the difference between a suspense thriller and a mystery, so here it is:

In suspense, the reader knows what the bad guy (antagonist) is up to before the protagonist knows. The reader's inside knowledge that someone is lying in ambush waiting for the unsuspecting character creates suspense.  The actual ambush makes it a thriller.

In a mystery, the reader only knows what the primary characters know. If they're hunting for a clue, you don't know where they may find it, and if someone is going to ambush them, you won't know until it happens.

My Redneck P.I. Mystery Series are romantic mystery/comedies.



My Zodiac Series are romantic suspense/thrillers.


Animals always play an important part.

Review -- It's Bad Business by R.L. Cherry

This is the second story featuring detective Morgana (Morg) Mahoney, a captivating character who has an insouciant sense of humor and enjoys a Jameson whisky, (or two) on the rocks.  


In this story, we go back in time to when she graduates from college and starts working as a private investigator. One of her cases is tied up with the Mexican Mafia—La Eme. She blames them when a special friend is murdered, but is unable to prove her suspicions. 

Fast forward fifteen years and Morg's past catches up with her. . . and maybe she'll finally solve the mystery and bring the killer to justice.


A mystery that will keep you guessing all the way to the end.  The characters are intriguing, quirky and disparate, and I particularly enjoyed Morg's sidekick—a Border Collie named Sam.

Here's where to purchase It's Bad Business

Interview with Author Susan Whitfield

I haven't featured any new authors for the longest time and I'm thrilled to be able to highlight multiple award-winning author Susan Whitfield. She writes in a variety of genres.


Q -- Welcome, Susan. It's so good to have you here on my blog. Please tell us about your writing – the genre/s, and why you chose it or them.

This is a loaded question, Trish! I started out to write a short story and it turned into a mystery novel, Genesis Beach. I liked the protag so much that I wrote a series about her, a tough North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation agent.  Since I’ve live in this state all my life, I decided rather than have Logan Hunter stay in one place, I’d move her around the state to showcase not only our beaches but our mountains and all parts in between.  Just North of Luck is set in the mountains, Hell Swamp along Black River where I grew up, Sin Creek along the Cape Fear waterfront in Wilmington, and Sticking Point in Beaufort. I decided to end the series and try on a few more hats.

I wrote a women’s fiction, titled Slightly Cracked and hope to write another novel in this genre. I had a blast writing about these two lifelong friends and their antics.

My brand new Sprig of Broom is historical fiction. I am the lineal descendent of a Knight of the Bath and wanted to write about him since he married King Henry’s daughter Matilda and fathered the long line of Plantagenet kings. He often wore a sprig of broom in his hat, hence the title.

I love to read many genres and I suppose it just seemed natural to try to write multiple genres as well. I’m easily bored so this has added adventure and challenge to my life.

Q -- Wow! I love that. So glad you chose to feature the historic book.

Sprig of Broom is the new book. It can be labeled historical fiction or creative nonfiction. It is a stand-alone. Here’s a synopsis:

Sprig of Broom is a coming-of-age novel about Geoffrey Plantagenet, a count, who at the age of 15 marries King Henry’s daughter, Empress Matilda, and fathers the dynasty of Plantagenet kings. The story begins with the count on his journey to Rouen in Normandy to become a Knight of the Bath. From Rouen, he and the king’s entourage travel to LeMans where Geoffrey is wed to Matilda. And the loathing begins . . .
Sir Geoffrey Plantagenet has much to learn, and over the course of his life’s journey he develops a better understanding of himself, fathers a long line of kings, endures adversaries—especially his own wife—and boldly faces the world of chaos around him.


Q -- Fantastic. Please tell us more about the main character(s).

Back in the 12th century folks were married off to each other with no regard for love or likemindedness. Goeffrey Plantagenet had never seen Matilda until he traveled to Rouen to be knighted and then with the king’s entourage to LeMans Cathedrale for the wedding. Matilda at once loathed Geoffrey because even though he was handsome, he was a mere count and only fifteen years old. She was 26 and had been previously married to the Emperor of Germany. She made his life difficult, indeed.
  
 Q --   Are you a pantser--you write by the seat of your pants, or a    plotter?

I have on occasion been a pantser but for Sprig of Broom it was crucial to be a plotter because I wanted to be as accurate as possible with the time period, architecture, travel, battles, and historical facts about their marriage and life together. Large gaps in time gave me the space I needed to let my imagination take over but I still wanted the novel to be believable.

Q -- Understandable. Promotion is the hardest part of being a writer. What do you do to promote your stories?

I have a blog at www.susanwhitfield.blogspot.com and a web site at www.susanwhitfieldonline.com I’m also a member of many writers’ groups including www.booktown.ning.com, www.coldcoffeepress.com, www.booksinsyn.com, www.bookemnc.com.

Here's a short excerpt of Sprig of Bloom:

“I will see Henry, my son,” I said sternly. I backed away from her bed and walked into the nursery, where the baby still fretted in a nursemaid’s arms.
“Is he ill?”
“No, my lord. He is a babe being a babe. Lady Matilda has not the patience needed—” She stopped her words and her face reddened. “Oh, I beg your pardon sir!”
I smiled and nodded, understanding at her candor. “No pardon is needed, but I do wish to hold this fussy moppet.”
I gathered the bundle in my arms and the future king quieted and looked at me with bright blue eyes. I walked to the high window’s sun and looked him over. He smiled up at me and if he had not already held my heart, he stole it then.

~***~

Virgo's Vice Cover Reveal

I just received my cover for the next story in my Zodiac Series, Virgo's Vice. As always, Soul Mate Publishing's artists did an amazing job and captured the essence of the story, which is a romantic suspense thriller set in Africa. 


Lexie King can't believe she did this to herself -- she signed up to work as a camera operator in Allan Dockery's new survival type reality show.


She wanted to prove she could break her reliance on anti-anxiety meds, and make something of herself. But she had no way of knowing he would be there. The monster.


Now all she wants is to get away--as far away as possible. But how? They're one stop past nowhere in Africa.


When shocking events start to happen, she draws comfort from Jake, the producer's chocolate lab, and cowboy contestant Billy Murphy, who makes her laugh at the darkest of times, and heats up more than her heart with his touch...





Scheduled for release in October 2015.

It Matters Radio - Trish jackson

Last night I had the privilege of being interviewed by Ken Weene on It Matters Radio, about my new Redneck P.I. Adventures book, Backwoods Boogie.


First I have to thank all three presenters -- Ken, Monica and Kerry. They are so warm and friendly, it's like being invited into their homes. There's even a cat called Punky who manages to get into a lot of the coverage, which made me feel more at home since I love animals.

We discussed the salient points of Backwoods Boogie -- first about the unlikely Picadilly Tearoom -- a British tea room in a little redneck town in Alabama called Quisby.  Ken asked what they were serving I said probably cucumber sandwiches and scones with strawberry jam and thick cream. Of course the interview took place at my time 9:30 pm so I actually had a glass of wine in front of me. Monica was in central time, and hour behind me, and Ken was in mountain time, and Kerry in Pacific time. Before my interview, a very talented musician, John Cee Stannard was the musical guest, broadcasting from London, England where it was some ungodly hour of the morning.

Some of my family members and friends attended and I wished I could have interacted more with them and the others who were there. 

We talked about Twila's mission to rescue almost 100 abused and mistreated dogs from an illegal puppy mill, and her venture with biker Bart and his vigilante's gang to take down a dog-fighting ring. It just happens to be Superbowl weekend and we discussed the fact that Godaddy agreed to remove their ad from the Superbowl because it depicted puppies being sold over the Internet -- which is how a lot of puppy mill dogs are sold.

Then we discussed my newest book, Aquarius Addiction, which had just been released the same day.

Review - Murder, Madness and Love



Murder, Madness and Love Is Yolanda Renee's first novel and she did a wonderful job.


Detective Steven Quaid is following the trail of a serial murderer. The only clues seem to point to Sarah Palmer, the recently widowed wife of executive Michael Palmer, who died suddenly in a car accident. Could she be a black widow? If she is, then why is someone stalking her?

The author has done a great job of creating a number of potential and very valid suspects, and ratcheting up the tension. The gruesome murders and terrifying stalking and kidnap scenes lead to an exciting and totally unexpected conclusion.

This is a great debut novel and I look forward to reading the next book in the series, which is currently available.

Aquarius Addiction Cover Reveal

I;m getting excited about my next novel in the Zodiac Series, Aquarius Addiction, now that the cover is done.



FBI psychic Arlette's Xylander's life changes dramatically when her mysterious Aunt Lucie, whom she has never met, dies, and bequeaths two things to Arlette--her country home on the banks of Bayou LeGue, and an ancient spell book. 
Then, on the same day she meets hunky Andre Rossouw, her doctor tells her she's suffering from a terminal disease. 


The house holds many mysteries, including the ghosts she hears meeting in her dining room in the dark hours of the night, and why is there a gris-gris -- the talisman of a voodoo curse -- outside in her yard? Could it be something to do with the mysterious, cloaked woman she sees at her aunt's graveside?

She displays all the character traits of her star sign, Aquarius, being feisty, eccentric, freedom-loving, flirtatious, rebellious and unpredictable, and she determines two things; to beat the odds of the disease, and to have wild and passionate sex with Andre.

Then she finds out he's engaged.

Get the prologue, Arlette's Story absolutely free here.

Interview with NZ Author Claire Plaisted

Claire Plaisted is a multi-talented author from New Zealand, who has written several books in different genres and for totally different audiences. Just looking at a list of the titles can tell you a lot -- Garrett Investigation Bureau – Malachy’s Unit, Rosetta’s Lot, Joseph’s Story, Ryan’s Madam.  And still to be published -- Mascosta’s Dreamgirl & Renegade Jones.  Other titles. - Zoe’s Journey, Charlie Girls First Summer Christmas, The Diary of a Psychotic Killer.


It's great to have you here on my blog, Claire. Could you give us a little more info about the various genres do you write?

Historical Romance Mystery, Mystery Romance, Sci Fi Young Adult, Children’s. I haven’t settled into any one Genre, and probably never will.


Are you a pantser? (You write by the seat of your pants and the story is all there in your head.)  

I’ve always wondered what to call myself!  My fingers do the talking. I open a word document and write whatever is there.


How about plotting? Have you ever tried it?

I sometimes chuck ideas around with friends if I get a bit stuck. I have never really plotted anything,


Do you think it's important to write a detailed list of your character's habits, likes, dislikes and family members? Why?

I did try this once at a suggestion of another friend who is also a writer, it didn’t really work for me.  These days when I write a book draft I sometimes open Notepad to write their names down and what they look like.


Writing in first person, present has been controversial in the past, but now it seems to be the trend for best-selling authors. (I look into the closet and recoil when I see what looks like a dead body.) Do you think it is more powerful than other tenses?

Is it more powerful?  No I don’t believe it is.  Some people enjoy reading a book as if they are doing the deed; others enjoy reading a book as if they are watching a movie.  I do have one draft where one character is in first person and all the others are in third.  It can get complicated, though it’s been fun to do.


What do you think today's readers want and how does it differ from readers of the past?

In many books I read I must admit to getting bored from all the descriptive writing.  I like to read a book which has twists and turn, lots of dialogue.  Entertaining, taking you out of your own life and into another world.  As a writer I want you to see what is happening.  My readers wanted sex scenes, so I gave them what they wanted.  Going back even fifteen years and those types of scenes were not acceptable.  The English language has also change a lot over the years, especially with the different types of English used in different countries.


I totally agree with you and I think it's something a lot of authors don't seem to get. Readers today don't have time for long-winded passages that don't advance the storyline. What book are you going to feature in this post? Tell us its genre and write a short paragraph about it.

“Girlie and the War of the Wasps.” This is a young children’s story which I wrote for a friend’s grandchild.  Since then I have had young beta readers who have been enthralled with it. 

 Girlie is a bright blue Ladybug who sees her best friend Grassi the Grasshopper kidnapped by nasty wasps.  Girlie follows them to their hive where she finds all different types of insects been used as slaves to look after the Queens and her babies.  Girlie has to find a way to save all the insects and stop the war. She goes on a quest to find a healthy diet for the Queen so her worker and drone wasps behave and do their own work.  Along the way she meets Sammie the kitten, Pedi the Centipede and many more.  She even drops in at an orphanage where there are many different coloured ladybugs. (The book cover below is a concept drawing and as you can see, it hadn't been completed yet.)


Can you tell me about your ideal reader? You probably have a few different ones.

Yes. With writing all different types of genres, my market is quite wide.  My children’s books have been well accepted by 6 – 10 year olds so far.  Parents saying to me “They won’t put it down, it’s amazing.”  One parents has a daughter who dislikes reading, I gave her a copy of my book “Zoe’s Journey,” her daughter read two chapters every night, and loved it.  ‘Zoe’s Journey’ is about myths and legends, strangely enough, the young girl’s class at school had studied this topic a few months prior.  

My adult books are suitable for anyone who wishes to read about murder, mystery and mayhem.  Suitable for anyone over 18 years.


Also, romance readers want steamy love scenes. Do you agree? Do you think your books meet their expectations?

Well you can certainly get steamy love scenes in my adult books.  The first time I was so embarrassed, it took a while to pick up the courage to self-publish one of the books.  I can however, write without steamy sex scenes as well.  Yes my books met the expectations of those who have read them so far.  All I get is – “I want more!”  Though I think that is more to do with the twisted plot rather than the sex scenes.


Children's books usually include pictures. How did you find an illustrator/photographer?

For my first little children’s book, which I hope to publish by Christmas, I have done my own drawings and with the help of a local Artist enhanced them, at present he is doing the colouring.  I met him at a networking meeting for local businesses.  Another idea I have looked at is helping art students at the local college and schools to build their portfolios, helping to build their experience.


Do any of your books have a message? 

The only books which will have messages in them are my little children’s books.  The first story called “Girlie and the War of the Wasps, is about eating healthy and playing nicely with others.  The second in the series is about biting and kicking and how unkind it is.  They are both adventure stories in the garden world of insects.


I like that. If you could choose one character from the book, what would he/she say to you if he/she was to meet you?

Out of all my characters I would like to meet Yuri.  I have no idea why, he is a good man caring for his boss and his staff.  I’d like to hug him and thank him for all his hard work.  What he would say to me?  I’m not sure he would, I thinks he’d just smile and salute with a twinkle in his eye.


Did you self-publish or query and hope a publisher would accept your work and how did that work out for you?

With my very first book, I did try and find an agent and get it published the old fashioned way, without any progress.  It taught me a lot about setting my work out; it didn’t help with my English or Grammar due to the fact they give no feedback whatsoever.  They never tell you why your book is not acceptable.   Since that time I have taught myself how to format books for eBook and Print versions.  It has been a hard road though enjoyable.  I no help other local authors get their books online.


What do you do to promote your writing?

I mainly use social media, Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Smashwords.  I will be adding a few more sites as I gather experience.  I also have a Writers Website, Blog and a Business Website.   On a local base I contact the local reporter and ask if they are interested.  I have participated in one article this year though my name has been in four articles with various clients.


What advice do you have for your fellow writers/authors?

Don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t write.  Find someone who will help you perfect your writing, use a program like “StyleWriter” to help with grammar and sentence length.  I have seen some great stories, though they needed a lot of work to get them publishable.  Be it the flow or grammar.  YOU CAN WRITE.  Get positive feedback and feed forward.  I dislike negativity it is not needed.  Read “On Writing” by Stephen King.  It is great.  It certainly helped me a lot.


Tell us about your next project.

I have several projects on the go at any one time.  I don’t concentrate on any one story unless I am in the mood to do so.  My fingers do the talking.  I have around 20 drafts on the go.  My aim though is to finish my little children’s book, “Girlie and the War of the Wasps,” and publish my next book in “Garrett Investigation Bureau” (GIB) series, called “Mascosta’s Dreamgirl.”  Hopefully by Christmas time.


Wow!! Prolific is not enough to describe that! But why should we buy your books?

I write a good book, with a good storyline; they tend to twist and turn when you least expect it.  They finish with a reader usually wanting more.  I’m good at keeping people on the edge of their seats.  This is with my adult book series (GIB)  They are interesting to read, you can learn a few things from each book even though they are fiction I try and get my facts right.  They are entertaining, romantic and in some cases horrifying.  They are also well priced in print and eBook versions.


They kind of sound like mine. Perhaps readers who like my books would also like yours, and vice-versa. Thank you so much again for this wonderfully entertaining interview. I hope readers will go to your sites and check out your books.

Backwoods Boogie Countdown...

It's not long now before Backwoods Boogie is released by my publisher, Uncial Press on November 14th, 2014.  I will be hosting a launch party on Facebook and I'll give away free downloads of this and the prior books in the Redneck P.I. Series -- Redneck P.I and Kick Assitude.



Redneck P.I. has been off the market for a while in e-book format, and it will come back on the same day as Backwoods Boogie and with a brand new, very fancy cover. I think Twila looks pretty tough in it!



(The print version has not changed and will keep its old cover.)








BACKWOODS BOOGIE is getting not one but two covers. As you will see, in the two years that have passed since Redneck P.I. was released, Twila has grown her hair quite a bit and she wears it in a different style.
This is the third book in the Redneck P.I. Mystery Series.


Redneck P.I. Twila Taunton cannot believe she is working for Jimmie-Ray, the man who stood her up on her wedding day. But she can't allow gentle Pam Taylor to go to prison for a murder she did not commit. Twila sets out to hunt down the real killer, with the help of hacker and mean guitarist Gasser Cunha, her hard-drinking great aunt Essie, and office assistant LaMercy Howard, who reluctantly agrees to go Goth. When she discovers an illegal puppy mill, and a possible dog fighting ring, Twila calls on a vigilante biker gang and her long distance lover, Harland to help. 
Oh… and she might be pregnant. 

20% of the author's proceeds will be donated to the ASPCA to aid in their fight against the disgusting cruelty and deplorable conditions of illegal puppy mills in the US.
