I’d like to welcome author G.G. Vandagriff to Juniper Grove today! G.G. has graciously allowed me to interview her as part of her 4-Book Nurture Virtual Gala Book Tour. Check out her interview below:

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

When I won a short story contest in 4th grade for “The Ballerina that couldn’t dance.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

Do crafts or fight with light sabers with my grandchildren, travel, make scrapbooks for my three children and my oldest grandchild, read, walk up the canyon to the waterfalls, go to lunch with friends, watch my favorite shows on TV, research for future books, sleep.

What does your family think of your writing?

My oldest son thinks “it’s intense”, my daughter is hard to read—she doesn’t give out compliments, so I don’t know if she likes it, tolerates it, or hates it.  My youngest son  has never read it, and my husband loves my mysteries, loves my Crazy Ladies (The Only Way to Paradise), and especially loves The Last Waltz which he did a fabulous website for (http://last-waltz.com). He says that is his favorite book.

How many books have you written so far?

Twelve

How did you celebrate the sale of your first book?

It was so long ago (1993), the only thing I remember was that I used it as an excuse to buy a fuschia colored blazer to wear for TV interviews (which I did).

What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a published author?

The thing that really helped me break through was doing writing exercises.  I pick a trigger and write for 20 minutes without stopping.  A friend and I did this together.  We learned a lot from each other.  One of my writing exercises turned into the first page of my first novel.  Writing exercises are like doing scales for violinists.  They develop your right brain: your imagination, your contact with your subconscious, your deepest thoughts about the universe.  If you do them long enough and frequently enough (everyday) you will experience a breakthrough in your confidence and develop your own distinctive voice, and your writing will cease to be superficial.  You will be able to go deeply into each characters arc—but creating arcs is the next step..

What genre do you find the most difficult to write in and why?

Women’s fiction is by far the most challenging, because instead of relying on a plot to tell you where to  go, you have to “let your characters loose” and go as deeply into their natures and explore every nuance of their relationships.  Then a theme will emerge. I have only written two women’s fiction: Pieces of Paris and The Only Way to Paradise.  I really enjoy the challenge, but they both took a very long time to write as I stretche myself.

What is the last book you read?

Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin.  I admire her tremendously.

Do you have any writing projects you are currently working on?

I have some fun things planned after the workout that The Only Way to Paradise  has given me.  I’m 80 pages into a historical romance, I have the next mystery in my series plotted and researched, I am trying to decide about a really off-the-wall sequel to Paradise, and have been requested by so many readers  to write sequels to The Last Waltz, that I am just waiting for the money I need to research in France and Poland.  We’re hoping to go next year.

What does the word success mean to you?

For me success is changing hearts.  Every one of my books, except Arthurian Omen, is aimed at this.  I think the only way that we will have peace in this world is if we change our hearts so that we have what Plato called agape.  There are many definitions of the word, but it basically means offering the people in you life a nurturing, selfless love.

What is the best advice anyone has ever given to you?

Two things:

1. Do writing exercises

2.) When you are far enough along in your book that you have arrived at your theme and you know your characters well enough that you have a beginning place and an end place for each one, use index cards to construct their arc, scene by scene taking them from the beginning to the end.  Use different color cards for each character.  Then construct your chapters placing each scene chronologically using all the cards for each character.  It is tremendous fun!

Thank you G.G. for that amazing interview!

Cankered Roots by G.G. Vandagriff

Synopsis:

Alexandra Campbell, a spunky young widow, partnered with Brighamina Poulson, an even spunkier, rifle-toting grandmother thinks that as they have begun a genealogy business (RootSearch, Inc.), it is high time she finds out her family secret. Something went wrong in her family during her adolescence, changing her mother from a Chicago North Shore matron into an alcoholic and a doting father into a workaholic. The moment she graduated from High School, she was sent to the Sorbonne in Paris with a generous bank account and instructions not to return.

It is now fifteen years since she has seen her parents, and she intends to lay the ghost that has separated her family for good. However, as usual in Alex’s unpredictable life, things do not go as planned. After an acrimonious fight with her once beloved father, she leaves with only a wallet-sized photograph of a woman she knows nothing about.

That night, Alex’s father is killed. Bewildered and grieved that her family can never be whole again, she soon finds out that she is the chief suspect in the murder. With the unflappable Briggie at her side, she uses all her new genealogical skills, and (with the help of Briggie’s deer rifle) discovers a secret so bizarre that she finally understands why her parents wanted her far away and safe.

Join Alex and Briggie in the first of their hair-raising adventures!

Nurture Book Tour – The Niteclif Evolutions: Legacy October 20, 2011

Author Bio:

Denise Tompkins lives in the heart of the South where the neighbors still know your name, all food forms are considered fry-able and bugs die only to be reincarnated in aggressive, blood-craving triplicate. Thrilled to finally live somewhere that can boast 3 ½ seasons (winter’s only noticeable because the trees are naked), her favorite season is definitely fall. It’s the time of year when the gardens are just about to pass into winter’s brief silence, and the leaves are out to prove that nature is the most brilliant artist of all.

A life-long voracious reader, Denise has three favorite authors. Why three? Because favorite authors are like chips: a person can’t have just one. Her little house was so overrun with books last year that her darling husband bought her an e-reader out of self-preservation. He was (legitimately) afraid she might begin throwing out pots and pans to make room for more books, and he didn’t want to starve.

Along with reading, Denise loves travel, is obsessed with the British Isles, practices photography, enjoys cooking and looks forward to Christmas as an excuse to bake.

Synopsis:

When Fate makes you her bitch, accept it and adapt. Or die.

Looking back on the wish she made on Midsummer’s Eve, Maddy Niteclif should have been more specific. She only wanted to escape the shadowy nightmares that plagued her nights, not to be thrust into a completely altered reality.

If a strangely familiar, sexy dragon-shifter named Bahlin, who causes a never-to-be-mentioned-again fainting spell, isn’t enough to make her question her sanity, his insistence she’s the Niteclif ought to do the job. Prophesied super-sleuth of the supernatural world—a world that desperately needs her help—isn’t a job she’s remotely qualified for no matter what her family tree says.

Catapulted into a very different London ruled by dark mythology, mystery and murder, Maddy makes a few startling discoveries. Paranormal creatures exist. Getting shot really sucks. And her body responds remarkably well to dragon magic—in more ways than simple wound healing.

But in this kill-or-be-killed world, reality bites. And Maddy must choose to go back to what she knows…or stay and fight for the man she knows she can’t live without.

Warning:  This book contains a shape-shifting dragon with a Scottish accent, modern and archaic weapons, global inter-species politics that make democracy seem mild, some very steamy sex underground, a severed head, murder, and…oh yeah…a woman caught in the middle of it all.

Time becomes irrelevant to the immortal.

But to one human woman, every second counts.

You can check out my full review of The Niteclif Evolutions: Legacy HERE but here is a snippet:

Maddy must learn that not everything that glitters is gold. With a power struggle surging, Maddy must master her new skills before her time, and life, are extinguished. Will she be able to walk away from the one thing her heart yearns for or follow the path that has been placed in front of her?

Along with reading, Denise loves travel, is obsessed with the British Isles, practices photography, enjoys cooking and looks forward to Christmas as an excuse to bake.

I’d like to welcome author Denise Tompkins to Juniper Grove today! Denise has graciously allowed me to interview her as part of her Nurture Virtual Book Tour. Check out her interview below:

Without giving too much away, can you tell us what The Niteclif Evolutions: Legacy is about?

Legacy is the first book in The Niteclif Evolutions series. The series is focused on a single heroine, Maddy Niteclif, who makes a wish that her life be anything other than what it is. She gets her wish and a great deal more, finding that her family tree is much more diverse and complex than she thought and she’s in no way prepared to handle it.

How long did it take you to write this book?

Legacy was a very fast book. It took about six weeks to write. I was an author possessed!

What was your inspiration to write this book?

I’d reached a very low personal point in my life and my husband came home one day, handed me a laptop and said, “Write. It used to make you happy.” I avoided the computer for several days until the idea for Legacy was born. I couldn’t sleep—knew I had to get up and write this story down lest I forget it. It was my first inclination that this would change my life.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.

Legacy is a fast-paced, action-oriented mystery with heavy romance elements from a debut author who’s here to stay.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I can have iTunes on in the background, but I cannot have the television or any other conversation happening around me. It becomes impossible for me to stay focused on the task at hand. Even turning the music up doesn’t help!

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I absolutely love photography, gardening and cooking. I look forward to the winter holidays as an excuse to bake. I really enjoy finding time to read, too, which has become more and more the luxury for me as of late.

What does your family think of your writing?

My husband and my parents are so proud of me. I’ve been blessed with the most intensely supportive network of friends and family. I don’t think I could have done better had I custom ordered them from a writers’ supply store!

What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a published author?

There are two pieces of advice I’d like to share. First, don’t listen to the nay-sayers. They have zero control and zero influence over whether or not you’re able to achieve your dream. You are the only one who can influence that.

Second, if you look at a piece of work and think, “It’s good enough,” you’re wrong. Live by this mantra: good enough never is. Your personal best is the only thing you should ever settle for.

What genre do you find the most difficult to write in and why?

I don’t write horror. I have a hard time with violence, and when it’s directed at innocent people or animals, it makes my stomach pitch. Some of my writing has violence in it, but it’s not the same. I’m not sure why, but it’s very different to me.

Is there anything that you find challenging in your writing?

I’m a Pantser, writing without any clear outline or synopsis. When I sit down to write, I’m dependent on my own sense of adventure and creativity to pick up where I left off and begin where we left off. It pushes me to think in broader elements, outside the box of “normal” more often than not.

Do you ever experience writer’s block and if so, how to you overcome it?

I definitely experience writers’ block, but I don’t accept it as terminal. Instead, I find my favorite writing music, Two Steps from Hell, and turn up the volume. I focus on where the character needs to be in the current paragraph, and what steps s/he needs to take to get to the next paragraph. I push through by focusing on small bites of progress.

What is the last book you read?

I’m currently reading Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh. She’s so incredibly talented. I’d love to meet her someday!

Do you have any writing projects you are currently working on?

I do. I just finished up the first book in a new series, The Key Guardians. Book one, Raising Cain, is a very cool story about a woman who’s The Key, the one soul capable of opening the gates to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. She’s not willing, but both Heaven and Hell are ready. The gloves come off in a fight for her soul, and no one’s fighting fair.

What does the word success mean to you?

Oh, wow. That’s a great question. Success is a multiply defined word for me. It means, first and foremost, that I can walk into a bookstore and pick my book up off the shelf. I have no care whether it’s hardback, paperback or trade paperback. Success means that I am multi-published in both digital and traditional media. It means I’ve got another contract signed and waiting for me. It means I’ve found the balance in my personal and professional lives that allows me to live richly and happily in both. That’s success to me.

If you had to trade lives with someone for an entire week, who would you trade with? Keep in mind that they would be living your life as well.

Assuming I’d be able to have her skill or that she’d carry her skill into my own life and my projects, I’d choose Larissa Ione. She’s the most amazing woman, and so genuinely kind-hearted. She’s incredibly talented and I feel like I could learn so much about the type of writer I want to be—as both a creative soul and a role-model for others—then she’d be my pick, hands down.

What is the best advice anyone has ever given to you?

Great question! By far and away the best advice I’ve ever been given is this: Dare to suck. It means don’t be afraid to go out there, do your best, and fail. It’s alright to not be the best at everything. It’s alright to suck, because it means you’re trying.

One food you would never eat?

Pickled pigs feet. Have you seen where pigs are walking? (shudders)

Biggest Pet Peeve?

Rude people. (laughs) They drive me absolutely bonkers. I mean, really. How hard is it to take ten seconds and show a little common courtesy? Can you imagine if the entire world took one day and did nothing but practice random acts of kindness? Wow.

Thank you Denise for that amazing interview! I myself would never eat pickled pigs feet *turns green* and am often annoyed by rude people…hehe

Synopsis:

Anthropology PhD candidate Lexi Harrison never bares it all when she belly dances for a strip club crowd. She doesn’t have to—she’s that good. Every performance earns money toward her degree, and restores the sense of power that her painful childhood ripped away.

Something is different about tonight. A man whose silver gaze seems to touch her skin beneath her veils. When a rowdy customer crosses the line, he comes to her rescue with the speed of a falcon—complete with wings.

Mikos Tyomni has never seen anyone dance the raqs sharqi like Lexi. Trust his tormentor, Archangel Michael, to put him in close contact with the cause of his downfall: a mortal woman.

Until her university mentor’s murder leaves her holding the key to Hell. And fighting a losing battle against a passion with the unholy power to bring down Heaven…

Excerpt:

Clad only in her bra and panties, her hair bouncing wetly against her neck, Lexi padded back into her bedroom. She picked up her discarded clothes then automatically put her hands into the right pocket of her jeans. At the stinging pain, she hissed and jerked her hand from her pocket bringing out a small white card, which fluttered to the floor.
A freaking paper cut. With her aching finger tucked into her mouth, she bent and picked up the card. She frowned.
Oh yeah, the business card Gary gave her. And the one from her professor’s office. She touched a finger to the surface. Thin black lines formed on the surface, shaping into a familiar, if unknown, sigil. She pulled her hand back. The lines held for a few seconds then faded. Damn it, both cards were the same.
“Hiya, doll!”
Caught off guard, Lexi jumped, the card fluttering from her fingers. Again. Her lips thinned.
The grating voice was unfortunately familiar and totally unwelcome. With both hands on her hips, she turned around. Rocky stood on her coffee table, humor glinting in his silver eyes. Good grief. Was he wearing a zoot suit?
“Fantastic. Just what I need. I thought you were a twisted figment of my imagination.”
“Nope. Sorry to disappoint you.”
Yeah, right. The trace of laughter in his sandpaper voice said otherwise.
“Although, I’ll give you twisted.” His lips twitched. “But a figment of your imagination? Nah.”
Rocky tilted his head and slanted her an admiring look. “Did I catch you at a bad time?” He gestured at her. “Not that I’m not enjoying the show, but don’t you think you should put some clothes on?”
She jerked her head down. The semi-transparent silken bra and bikini-cut panties provided protection in only the most dubious sense. Shooting him a withering glare, she stomped to the dresser and yanked out a pair of black jeans and white thermal hoodie.
How did one go about incinerating rock, anyway?
After slipping into the clothes, she slammed the drawer shut. At the sound of porcelain rattling on wood, she paused and stared at the top of the dresser.
Once bright red roses sagged in their vase, silky heads bowing toward the wood. She needed to pick some more up next time she was at the store.
Her gaze moved to the item the flowers shaded. Trailing her finger along the picture frame’s edge, she stared at the two people who meant the world to her. Two people she barely remembered.
Her parents.
A somber dark-haired man, his arm around the slender form of a laughing, blonde-haired woman. Even through the graininess of the picture, she could see the equal amounts of tenderness and pain in her father’s pale brown eyes.
Sadness twisted in her chest, the sharp ache always present, but muted with each passing year. A tiny, one-dimensional picture. All she had of her parents.
Forcing the pain deep, she finished closing the drawer, this time much more gently. She still felt grief’s razor edge, a reminder of the hurt that came with having feelings. With caring.
Casting a glance back at Rocky, she said, “What the hell do you want?”
Ignoring her question, he winked and walked over to the edge of her table and peered at the cover of a National Geographic.
“Hey, can I borrow this? I haven’t seen this issue.” He looked up at Lexi, his silver eyes brimming with anticipation.
“What. The hell. Do you. Want?” she repeated, a silken thread of warning in her voice.
Rocky placed a small hand over his forehead and staggered back. “Is that any way to welcome your guide?”
Pretending to swoon, he lurched against her two-foot high black granite statue of Sekhmet, an ancient Egyptian goddess with the head of a lioness and the body of a woman.
Lexi gasped and darted for the statue as it wobbled, then tilted. She righted the figurine and glared at Rocky.
“Sorry, toots.” Suddenly his hand shot out and grabbed the amulet, which had swung free when she bent over. “Hmm, what’s this?”
She’d forgotten about the necklace. At the same moment she lifted her hand to take it from his grasp, Rocky jerked, let go of the amulet and skittered back. One foot went off the edge of the coffee table, but he managed to stay upright.
“Damnosa.” Eyes wide, he stared up at Lexi, silver eyes huge in a washed out gray face. “Mikos didn’t tell me you have the Nativitas.” He spoke in a hushed tone charged with awe and respect.
Surprised by his reaction, Lexi eyed him in confusion. “What?” She held the amulet in her hand. “This?”
He hadn’t noticed it before? When he was drooling over her body?
“Yeah, that.”
“What’s the big deal?”
“The big deal? You don’t know what this is?” He cocked his head. “I guess you don’t,” he murmured. “It’s a rebirth stone.”
“Oh. That’s what it’s called.” Lexi looked down at the amulet. Her brow wrinkled. “A rebirth stone?”
Well, that made sense. Little else did. Could she really be having a conversation with a tiny man in her living room?
After she’d received a visit from a demon?
She tapped her fingers on the table. “So, guide, answer this. Why me?”
“Sorry, can’t help you there. That’s for Mikos to explain.”
“You can’t help me?” She frowned. “What kind of guide are you?”
He shifted his stance then pulled at his ear, keeping his eyes averted. “Sorry, not my story to tell. Ask Mikos.”
“Since I don’t plan to see Mikos ever again, I won’t be able to ask him anything, so why don’t you just tell me?”
Lexi stomped into the kitchen and grabbed a beer from the fridge. She twisted off the cap and took a deep drink. The cold, slightly bitter taste filled her mouth. She rarely drank—this six-pack had been in her fridge for six months. But this last day deserved beer. Maybe three beers.
When Lexi turned to face Rocky again, she wasn’t surprised to see he had done one of his blinking things and now stood on her kitchen counter.
“Can’t tell you.” He tilted his head. “What do you mean you won’t be seeing Mikos again?” The tire-on-stone tone of his voice revealed disapproval.
“Just what I said.”
“You have to. He’s the one who can help you. Train you.”
“Not interested.” God, she was getting tired of explaining herself. How many times did she have to say no?
Rocky stared at her, speechless. She hoped. Probably few things kept the shapeshifter quiet. She’d only seen him twice but could tell he liked the sound of his own voice. Odd, but she found the little man appealing. Like an exotic pet—strange and unusual, but highly entertaining.
Finally, he shook his head. “Bad idea, Alexandria.”
She winced. Did he just call her by her full name? “Like I told Mikos, my name isn’t Alexandria. It’s Lexi.”
“Lexi,” he tried it out, and then nodded. “I like it.”
“I’m so glad you approve.”
She barely kept the twitch of her lips from becoming a smile. Taking her beer, she headed back to the living room. She started to step over a small square of white on the carpet but then stopped. Oh, yeah. The business card.
“Whatcha’ got there?” Back on the coffee table, Rocky stretched his neck to try and see what she had picked up.
Nosy bugger. “It’s a business card.” She flopped onto the couch and held out the card. “I found it in my professor’s office today.”
Rocky took the card. His lips pursed then he nodded. “Sure, that’s Mikos’s card. I’ve seen tons of them.” He met her gaze. Curiosity glowing in the gray depths. “Are you talking about Professor Xaviera?”
If Lexi hadn’t been sitting by that time, she’d have fallen to the floor. She hadn’t missed the import of what Rocky unknowingly admitted. “You knew Professor Xaviera?”
“Yeah, Mikos does too. The Prof is a really decent guy.”
“Don’t you mean was a decent guy?”
Rocky cocked his head, his expression confused. “Was?”
“He’s dead. Murdered. Two days ago.” Lexi snatched the card out of Rocky’s unresisting hands. “And I found this in his office.”
“Dead?”
“Yes, dead. As in not breathing. Dead. Someone came close to cutting his head off with a freaking sword.”
Rocky’s dark-gray skin paled, turning ashen. “A sword?”
Lexi rolled her eyes and stood. “I thought you were a rock, not a parrot. Stop repeating everything I say. Yes, a sword.”
Leaving him speechless, she stalked over to the closet and grabbed a lightweight jacket. In her bedroom, she slipped on a pair of ankle boots with a low heel. Slamming her sanjiegun, a three-section staff into its holder at her hip, she headed for the front door. So much for food.
She looked back at Rocky. The shapeshifter hadn’t moved. While his skin was no longer ashen gray, his silver gaze was shadowed with an expression of worry.
“You coming?” she asked. “I need directions.”
“Where are you going?”
“Mikos.”
This time, the shapeshifter’s eyes widened in alarm.

My Review:

Renovation Bootcamp: Kitchen – Design and Remodel Your Kitchen Without Losing Your Wallet, Your Mind and Your Spouse by Robin Siegerman is a breath of fresh air for anyone wanting to remodel their kitchen! As someone who hopes to remodel her kitchen someday, I have a better understanding of what all goes into a remodel and what to prepare for. There are so many things that Robin talks about in her book that I never would have considered and now that I know about them, I can better prepare and plan. If I jumped into a kitchen remodel, I would have been stuck with extra costs and time added to my project because I simply did not know what all a remodel takes.

For instance, Renovation Bootcamp: Kitchen pointed out that apparently I have been living in the dark ages. Did you know that they make microwave drawers?

(Dacor Millennia Microwave In-A-Drawer)

I didn’t! As someone with a very small kitchen, I am always being annoyed by the space that my microwave takes up on the counter. Robin suggests that for kitchens with little counter space, to consider using a microwave drawer. They are built underneath the counter as a drawer and are a much better way to manage the space in the kitchen!

Robin also talks about topics that we wouldn’t normally think of such as clean-up. She points out that once the remodel is complete that you are most likely to be excited to move into your new kitchen and start putting things away. She advises against this and also suggests that you hire a professional cleaning crew to come in and make sure everything has been cleaned properly. I never would have thought to have a crew come in and do the clean-up, just taking it upon myself to clean up afterwards. During the remodel, dust settles on everything and can cause health hazards later on if not properly cleaned. Be sure to clean your new kitchen twice, remembering to clean the vents and air ducts as well to prevent future problems!

If you are thinking about a kitchen remodel, I highly recommend you read Renovation Bootcamp: Kitchen – Design and Remodel Your Kitchen Without Losing Your Wallet, Your Mind and Your Spouse by Robin Siegerman before you begin any kitchen remodel projects to avoid extra cost, problems and frustration.

Crazily passionate about the writing industry, Kim published a paranormal romance with Samhain Publishing and has a post-apocalypse novella coming in early 2012 from Lyrical Press.

~*~*~*~

I’d like to welcome author Cassiel Knight to Juniper Grove today! Cassiel has graciously allowed me to interview her as part of her Nurture Virtual Book Tour. Check out her interview below:

Without giving too much away, can you tell us what Relic Defender: Key of Solomon is about?

The heroine, Lexi, is a lonely archeology student seeking to forget her painful past. Against her will, she is swept into a fierce battle between good and evil and must team up with sexy Mikos, a fallen angel on the path to redemption, to find King Solomon’s legendary book of magic to save the human race.

How long did it take you to write this book?

Much longer than I wanted. Mostly because I had to keep redoing the first chapter. I just could not get one I liked. Or, rather, I wrote ones I liked but they just didn’t show the book well, especially in contests. Even after I finished, I kept going back to redo. Ended up with quite a few discarded first chapters.

What was your inspiration to write this book?

Wanting to write something different then the market was doing and I’d always loved the idea of angels but I didn’t necessarily want to write an “angelic” being so I when I discovered fallen angels then learned King Solomon was said to have been able to control them, I found my story.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.

Because Mikos, my fallen angel, is just so darn sexy and delicious.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

It takes me forever to get a character’s name and my critique partners were always getting new pages and kept asking, who is so and so? I’d have to tell them that’s the heroine’s or hero’s new name. It got to be quite a joke. I’m not as bad now but it still takes me long time to settle on just the right name for my characters – all of them – big and small.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

Hugging my shih tzus, gardening and reading and I love going to conferences and doing other writing-related stuff.

What does your family think of your writing?

My Mom and sisters are proud and happy for me. My husband wonders when I’ll make enough so he can quit. I tell him, “Honey, if anyone is going to quit because of my writing, it’s going to be me.” Of course, I am nowhere near that yet. :)

What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a published author?

Write a good book. Seriously. That’s the key to the whole thing. And then I’d add, and make the book something you believe in because you, unless you are Nora Roberts who has hundreds of books out, are going to be with that book a long time.

What genre do you find the most difficult to write in and why?

Erotica. It’s popular, I’d love to be able to but I can’t quite wrap my head around writing so many sex scenes. I’m very plot-driven and I don’t equate the two in my head.

Is there anything that you find challenging in your writing?

Writing. Yep, the actual writing. And mostly the sagging middle. I do beginnings and endings but it’s all the stuff in the middle that causes me heartache. Usually right around page 100.

Do you ever experience writer’s block and if so, how to you overcome it?

All the time and I haven’t, not really. I just keep pushing and pushing and writing and writing until stuff comes out. And if you’ve ever heard, “The more your write, the easier it is”?, it’s true, so true. I try to write something every day related to storytelling. If I don’t, if there is too many days between writing, it’s like starting all over again. That’s where writing block (for me) comes from.

What is the last book you read?

First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones and then the sequel, Second Grave on the Left. Wonderful story! I had a happy, thrilled sigh at the end of the first and sometime near the end of the second; I actually teared up (in a good way). Only one other book ever did that so needless to say, I’m pleased to have found Ms. Jones.

Do you have any writing projects you are currently working on?

Sure do. First, I just finished edits for my post-apocalyptic romance coming out from my new publisher, Lyrical Press, in February. The page isn’t up yet but if you want to read an excerpt, you can visit my blog at www.CassielKnight.com. I’m 200 pages into The Death Skull, book 2 (after Key of Solomon) and I’m revising a third which I like to say is Tomb Raider meets the Librarian.

What does the word success mean to you?

Several things:

Writing full time
Having two to three books out a year
Readers waiting for my stories

If you had to trade lives with someone for an entire week, who would you trade with? Keep in mind that they would be living your life as well.

Well, now, you had me until that last part. I couldn’t do that to someone I liked. I work as a records coordinator during my day job. It is not exciting. Really. I’m not joking.  It would be totally mean to swap my job with someone else and I can’t think of anyone I don’t like. :)

What is the best advice anyone has ever given to you?

Nora Roberts didn’t give this to me personally but it’s still great advice and I think about it all the time. Now, I’m going to paraphrase because I’ve heard it credited to her in several different ways (does anyone know what she actually said?) – I can fix a bad page; I can’t fix a blank page. When I get stuck, this is what I hang on to. I love revising so this works great.

One food you would never eat?

Any raw seafood but especially oysters, clams. Shudder. :)

Thank you Cassiel for that amazing interview! I’m a firm believer in eating nothing that comes from the sea.

Relic Defender: Key of Solomon by Cassiel Knight

Synopsis:

Anthropology PhD candidate Lexi Harrison never bares it all when she belly dances for a strip club crowd. She doesn’t have to—she’s that good. Every performance earns money toward her degree, and restores the sense of power that her painful childhood ripped away.

Something is different about tonight. A man whose silver gaze seems to touch her skin beneath her veils. When a rowdy customer crosses the line, he comes to her rescue with the speed of a falcon—complete with wings.

Mikos Tyomni has never seen anyone dance the raqs sharqi like Lexi. Trust his tormentor, Archangel Michael, to put him in close contact with the cause of his downfall: a mortal woman. Particularly this mortal woman. The Defender. He has only thirty days to win her trust before Hell’s deadliest demons attempt the mother of all prison breaks.

No matter how sexy the messenger is, Lexi’s career plans don’t include some crazy idea that she’s the last line of defense against the forces of evil. Until her university mentor’s murder leaves her holding the key to Hell. And fighting a losing battle against a passion with the unholy power to bring down Heaven…

~*~*~*~

I’d like to welcome Award Winning Interior Designer Robin Siegerman to Juniper Grove today! Ms. Siegerman has graciously allowed me to interview her. Check out her responses below:

Do you think that it is easier or harder to write How-To books rather than books of other genres?

Well, since I’ve never written a book of another genre, I’m not sure that I’m qualified to answer that.  But as for writing my own book, Renovation Bootcamp™: Kitchen, once I got going it was hard to stop!  It’s a subject I know so well and repeat to clients daily, so it was just a matter of sitting down and doing it.

How long did it take you to write Renovation Bootcamp: Kitchen?

The writing itself took about a year with a few stops and starts…

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.

You should read it to avoid renovation surprises which can lead to renovation hell.

With a down economy and so many people without jobs, do you think that doing DIY projects are increasing in popularity? Why or why not?

Yes, I think DIY is increasingly popular so people can get as much value for their money as possible.  I would just caution them, however, that DIY with things like electrical, plumbing and gas fitting is extremely dangerous and should only be done by a qualified professional.  That is not the place to try to save money.

I know that you have appeared on several popular radio and TV shows. Do you have a favorite moment from one of the shows that always sticks out in your memory?

My favorite moment was on the HGTV Canada show Real Renos with Jim Caruk.  I was designing the kitchen for his new house and I went to do a site measure.  It was all boarded up and I couldn’t see a way in.  When I finally squeezed through a plywood barrier, I found Jim inside who told me I should have just rung the door bell.  I told him not only was there not a door bell, there was no door! It was an amusing moment and sums up the banter in my working relationship with Jim!

Do you have a piece of advice that you can share with us about easy ways to help save money while doing DIY projects?

You mean apart from the well-known, “measure twice, cut once”?!  It would have to be: If you’re renovating a kitchen, for example, have all the materials, products and fixtures purchased or at least on order before you begin tearing anything apart.  That will ensure that when you get to the stage that you need the product, you don’t get delayed waiting for it.  It also means you’re likely to save money.  If you’re in a panic situation for a product that you need right away because you didn’t plan ahead, you might be forced to buy something more expensive just to move the job forward.

Do you have any hobbies that aren’t work related?

I love to read, go to movies and theatre, and I’m widely known as a Karaoke Queen.

What is the last book you read?

I Remember Nothing by Nora Ephron.  Her brand of humor fits me to a T and she had me snorting tea out my nose.  Seriously funny for women 39 and up.

Do you have any more writing projects you are currently working on?

I’m starting the next book in the Renovation Bootcamp™ series: Renovation Bootcamp™: Bathroom – Design and Remodel Your Bathroom Without Getting Hosed.

What does the word success mean to you?

Being able to move to Figi.  I’m not quite there yet.

If you had to trade lives with someone for an entire week, who would you trade with? Keep in mind that they would be living your life as well. 

The lady wrestler that George Clooney is now dating.  I like Italy and my husband would be happy too.

What is the best advice anyone has ever given to you? 

My Grandfather said: Bagels can’t be choosels.

One food you would never eat?

A chocolate covered insect of any kind.

Biggest Pet Peeve?

I have so many it’s hard to choose one. But men in black socks, sandals and shorts is a biggie.

Thank you Robin for that insightful interview! I know personally I am terrible at making sure I have all the items needed before I begin a large renovation project. Maybe I should listen to your advice because it really does end up costing more of both money and time when all big items haven’t arrived beforehand.
