Crimson Chaos gold 2


Crimson Chaos by Amos Cassidy, the thrilling conclusion to the Crimson Series, is out today! Rose, Raven, Roman and the gang must face their own personal demons and come together to fight an invisible threat that challenges the existence of their world.

 

An ancient prophecy.
An entity older than the beginning of time.
Surely the survivors of bloody battles on fey beaches deserve a timeout, a chill period, a chance to reflect? Yeah, right!
When the gang are faced with an ancient threat, it’s just another day at the office until they realise that this time their efforts may not be enough. This time maybe fate won’t be thwarted, because this time their foe is more powerful than anything they could ever have imagined. It’s a race against time, a race against the unpredictable, and, for the first time, the odds are stacked against them. It’s anyone’s game. No guarantees. No returns.
When Khaos strikes, who will be left standing?
 
What readers are saying…
…Amos Cassidy always does an amazing job of giving you just enough info to follow while still keeping you in the dark until the last possible moment…
…This series has been twisty and turny from book one, which I thought was going to be a typical UF but NOOOOO … we can’t have that. And following the gang’s story has kept me on the edge of my seat for the last three years…

Want to know a little bit more about the Authors?

 Amos Cassidy is the pen name for Richard Amos and Debbie Cassidy. Amos is a 31 year old Diva and Cassidy a 38 year old mother of three; well, four if you include the husband. A common love of all things Joss Whedon, Urban Fantasy, and a tug of war over Jensen Ackles, brought them together, and one cold February afternoon, over nibbles and coffee, their partnership was born.

You can find Cassidy hard at work in her fortress of solitude which has eaten up the majority of her garden, and Amos…well he’s still trying to get the invisibility gizmo he got off a friendly alien in exchange for a pair of earphones to work. Funnily enough he hasn’t been seen around much lately…

Frequent doses of Sugary snacks, coupled with regular injections of caffeine aid in their production of a unique brand of cross genre tales. They are always writing, but are happy to take a break to chat to their wonderful readers, so drop them a line at amoscassidy.com, or just pop over to see what they’re working on and they’ll bust out the biscuit tin.

Why Do We Love Horror So?

 

Horror as a genre is quite a fascinating one!

What is it about the “things that go bump” that sends a chill down our spine? Why do our hearts race when we read tales of werewolves, vampires, zombies, or demons? What makes us shiver and quake when we read stories about mind-stealing aliens, hordes of nightmarish creatures, and monsters from mythology and lore?

Fear is a pretty interesting emotion. There are two types of fear:

  • Fear of something — Disease, death, theft, suffering, pain, dishonor, loss of money or status, etc.
  • Fear for something — Fear for your family and loved ones.

Which one causes more terror? Neither trumps the other–both are equally terrifying!

When we experience these fears, our body does some interesting things:

  • Our heart speeds up (by as much as 15 BPM faster than our resting heart rate)
  • Our skin temperature drops
  • Our palms begin to sweat
  • Our muscles get all tense and knotted up
  • Our blood pressure rises

What is causing all of these reactions? Why do our bodies act like this?

Simply put: it’s all about evolution.

Animals and humans have evolved over the years (centuries, millennia, etc.), adapting to their environment. Our brain and bodies have evolved slowly, and there are still certain aspects of our physiology and psychology that have not yet evolved. Look at the appendix and the last thoracic vertebra (the tail bone)–neither of these are strictly necessary, but we still have them.

Our psyche has changed a lot over time, but there are still things that remain unchanged. When we see something that is a threat (even if it’s just on a TV screen or in our minds), our bodies react out of instinct. The “animal” within us has that visceral gut reaction of fear and anxiety, and there is no control over it.

Psychologists aren’t quite sure what makes horror and action movies so appealing to us. Some believe that it has to do with the concept of “rites of passage”. Young males had to undergo certain physical and psychological tests and stressors to be considered “men”. Though many of those rites have disappeared from modern society, they’re not entirely gone.

Look at the “hazing” many college students endure. It’s all about “surviving” the torments–physical and mental. Horror movies and books have that same effect on us. They push our bodies to the limits of fear, and they give us a way to prove our courage. The “scarier” the movie or book, the “tougher” we are to survive it unscathed and unaffected by it.

Here’s an interesting thought: all of the physical effects of horror listed above (the increase in blood pressure, the racing heart, the sweaty palms, etc.) are the same effects caused by arousal and sex drive. Perhaps we “enjoy” horror so much not because of the actual horror itself, but because of the reaction it produces in our bodies. The flood of adrenaline, the surge of excitement, and the emotional “rush” caused by horror is a variety of the pleasure we feel when attracted to someone else.

Whatever the reason, horror is a genre that is here to stay! After all, what would we do without a good book or movie that gets our heart racing, sends chills down our spines, and gives us an excuse to cling to that handsome man or pretty woman beside us?

 

A faceless, nameless assassin. A forgotten past.  The Hunter of Voramis–a killer devoid of morals, or something else altogether? (Blade of the Destroyer–dark fantasy with a look at the underside of human nature)

 

The Last Bucelarii (Book 1): Blade of the Destroyer

The Hunter of Voramis is the perfect assassin: ruthless, unrelenting, immortal. Yet he is haunted by lost memories, bonded to a cursed dagger that feeds him power yet denies him peace of mind. Within him rages an unquenchable need for blood and death.

When he accepts a contract to avenge the stolen innocence of a girl, the Hunter becomes the prey. The death of a seemingly random target sends him hurtling toward destruction, yet could his path also lead to the truth of his buried past?

Andy Peloquin: Lover of All Things Dark and Mysterious

Andy Peloquin–a third culture kid to the core–has loved to read since before he could remember. Sherlock Holmes, the Phantom of the Opera, and Father Brown are just a few of the books that ensnared his imagination as a child.

When he discovered science fiction and fantasy through the pages of writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs, J.R.R Tolkien, and Orson Scott Card, he was immediately hooked and hasn’t looked back since.

Andy’s first attempt at writing produced In the Days: A Tale of the Forgotten Continent. He has learned from the mistakes he made and used the experience to produce Blade of the Destroyer, a book of which he is very proud.

Reading—and now writing—is his favorite escape, and it provides him an outlet for his innate creativity. He is an artist; words are his palette.

His website (http://www.andypeloquin.com) is a second home for him, a place where he can post his thoughts and feelings–along with reviews of books he finds laying around the internet.

He can also be found on his social media pages, such as:

Ere’s Secret by Firi Kamson
Genre: Women’s Fiction, Contemporary Romance

I have a secret.

In three days, I’ll be turning 40 and I’m in love for the first time. Decades ago, I sacrificed my life for the good of my family. But tragedy struck too close to home, reminding me of the brevity of life.

Now I have a choice to make: continue living in shadows or allow my true self to emerge.

 

My life was uninteresting and would have stayed that way until I met Luke. This was a chance meeting and I could say we were destined to meet, who knows. It was a Sunday evening and I was at this point tired of my life and living my life as society wanted it to be lived. It was the day I defied all odds and subdued my nerves as I went into my closet and put on a black pair of pencil jeans and a black loose fitting Tee-shirt, that Cassandra, my oyibo Canadian neighbor who never took no for an answer, even though she had been unsuccessfully trying to invite me for coffee at hers for years; gave me. Surprisingly, when I put this on, it struck me how much weight I had lost. I looked like a skinny school girl instead of a 38 year old mother of three. Ignoring the inquiring looks my boys gave me, I told them I was going out with my friends. Further ignoring the equally curious look I got from Musa, our old reliable gateman who refused to leave us when Opuada died and was content with whatever I could pay him. With a straight face, I told him I was going out and would be back in a couple of hours.

 

Firi Kamson was born in Nigeria, where she grew up. Becoming a lawyer, a writer and a pilot was her childhood dream, she dropped the lawyer part and got a B.A. in foreign languages and literature speciality French. Worked as a freelance translator and a photographer for a couple of years before she decided to explore the creative world of writing. She writes a column for http://www.sabinews.com, as Tee, an online Nigerian based magazine, where she journals her experiences in south east Asia. The dream of becoming a pilot is still there and who knows one day it would be fulfilled. She lives in South East Asia with her nerdy husband and very active daughter and son. Ere’s Secret is her first work.

The Bass Player Quit Again

Or, the Chemistry of Author Co-Ops

 

“She wants to be an author when she grows up!” I looked down into the wide eyes of a tween girl. Her parents pulled her over to my booth so they could tell me this, apparently in hope that I could grant some words of wisdom on the spot. So I tell her half the truth. The good half. The encouraging half.

Thanks to modern technology, specifically ebooks and digital publishing, this little girl is growing up in a time when anyone who wants to chase their dream of being an author will have more choices before them than any era before. She can choose to avoid the lifelong frustration of rejections and never getting that break. Her destiny will be in her own hands, and success or failure will be more in her control than ever. The parents smiled and the girl glowed and my duty to inspire future generations was done for the day.
I had, of course, only told her the good news. What I didn’t tell her was that her destiny will be in her own hands, and success or failure will be more in her control than ever.

Today, authors are expected to be our own brands, marketers, promoters, formatters, editors, proofreaders, and (the historical antithesis of everything authorly) social!

The duties and responsibilities of a fiction author are overwhelming, and many people fail because they go at it alone. Some people compare being an author to being a full time one-person business. But that’s not accurate. It’s actually more akin to a small business of five to ten employees. No, forget all that. The best analogy is that of a garage band.

That brings me to author co-ops. I am a part of one; it’s called the Speculative Fiction Guild. Finding and cultivating an author co-op is the sanity-saving approach to being an author. Author co-ops form organically as a result of that pesky socializing and networking. They’re formed through shared experiences and often shared adversity. There are a million co-ops and a million stories.

In your co-op, you may have a strong cover artist. Another who creates strong back cover blurbs (this happens to be my specialty) yet others who create book trailers, create websites, formats ebooks, etc. Because these are people you’ve cultivated a relationship with, you all bond and help each other by sharing expertise. You’re all in it together and you share in each other’s successes and failures.

Yes, you can still be Bob Dylan or Melissa Etheridge and do it all, but there’s a reason that the Dylans and Etheridges are few and far between. It’s easier to master the keyboard and go find a good bass player, drummer, and lead singer to jam with.

11865171_1034118413265088_5347482614186695339_o

            Being in an author co-op is like having your own band while being an occasional player in other author’s bands. So I’ll lay down a track for E. Chris Garrison and John F. Allen, and in return they help me figure out the lyrics to this new song I’m putting together. And then you load up the tour van, go out on the road, split hotel and gas, and learn too much about what your bandmate mumbles in their sleep.
Yeah, it’s a lot like that.

Unfortunately, the resemblance to garage bands doesn’t end there. Sometimes a member trashes a hotel (not literally … well, okay, sometimes literally). Sometimes your guitarist has to step away. Sometimes the drummer wants to go a direction the bass and guitar don’t get. Maybe two players go off and form their own band (and call it Journey…sorry, did I just show my age there?)

And that’s okay. These things have to happen to keep the creative process healthy.  But when you find a few others who get your groove…the jam sessions are magic!

SFG will be well represented at Imaginarium. I’ll be there with my regular session guys John and Chris, plus Kat French and Matt Barron, and perhaps a couple more, not quite confirmed as of this writing. Storytelling by its nature is a solitary venture, but you don’t have to go it alone.

Hooray, it is finally release day for Nacreous! Thanks for stopping by the fabulous Release Day Blitz, organized by b00k r3vi3w Tours. To kick off the blitz, here are a couple of “Fun Facts” about my writing process… I hope you enjoy!


Writing Playlist:


So…Music. Some authors swear by it. They have their playlist set in the background while they pen their latest manuscript. Me? Not exactly. Music is very important to me. I believe in dance parties, and by dance parties I mean cranking up my I-pod to the music fitting my mood, be this salsa, classic rock, blues, country, classical, whatever, and dancing alone in my room or kitchen. (Yes, I said classical and country in the same list). My kids may or may not be in attendance. They like to watch and laugh. Sometimes, they join in. But as far as my writing process goes, the music is sort of my warm up. So I might turn on some music that fits my mood for parts of the story and listen to it in my car or at my desk before I write, but not while I am actually writing. I need it to be quiet in the room, so I can tell the story…(Ahem, hear what my characters are trying to tell me). ;) While I wrote Nacreous, and the other books in the Harmony Run Series, my favorite music warm-up to set the mood was Lorde. Specifically, the songs Team and A World Alone. In fact, if any of the books from my series could be made for film, I would beg producers to include one of those songs in the movies.


My Writing Process:


I can’t sit down and force myself to write everyday because it begins to feel too mechanical, but I am definitely one of those people who thinks about writing, story ideas, characters, scenarios all of the time, awake or asleep. I love using my dreams in my writing and have written a few of them into scenes in the Harmony Run Series. Back in college, the good ol’ stone ages, I had one of the most terrifying dreams of my life about a man with a triangular-shaped eye chasing me down a corridor, one door after the other, with this woman’s voice echoing all around us, telling him to kill me. When I got to the end of the corridor, I opened the last door, and he was standing there facing me. I woke up sobbing…About a year later, a psychology professor at my university asked some of us to share dreams with him so he could demonstrate dream analysis. I bravely raised my hand, (this was huge for me, since I am very shy in person), and shared my dream in vivid detail. After I finished talking, the entire class got eerily quiet and the professor told me I was dealing with issues beyond his realm of help, and went on to the next student’s dream. That student shared a dream about not being able to make a goal in a soccer match, and the professor dissected his dream in depth for fifteen minutes. Years later, I incorporated that dream, adding on some twists and turns of course, into book one from the Harmony Run Series, Prismatic. 


I also come up with ideas when I’m looking out of the kitchen window, when I’m walking, driving, cooking, gardening, taking my kids to martial arts, helping with their homework, basically, every waking moment. I take heaps of notes. I jot notes down for days. And when I’m ready, I sit down and type everything I can. I woke up the other night, and grabbed the notebook and pen beside my bed and wrote down an idea for another story. So my writing process is sort of a twenty-four hour thing. Oh, and probably the most important part of the process…How could I forget? My dog, Shorty, has to harass me to sit in my lap throughout the day. She eventually gives up and sleeps at my feet or nearby. She spares me the occasional glance or sighs every so often when I talk too much. Yes, I like to talk aloud to myself more often than not. If that dog could talk…Well, thankfully that’s not an issue. Here’s a photo of my writing pal…

Isn’t she cute? I hope you stick around to read about Nacreous. I’m going to look up that old psychology professor to see if he wants to read my latest book… ;)

Why You Shouldn’t Stress About Reviews

 

I’m one of those readers who loves a good series. Nine times out of ten, the second book in a new series is even more incredible than the first one. And the one after that, and the one after that, until the final book leads to an explosive conclusion that leaves you satisfied, though you may be grudgingly accepting that your favorite series is coming to an end.

 

Talk about pressure.

 

It took me years to finally release the first book in my first trilogy: Demon’s Daughter. I put everything I had into it. Gave the story my all. I was proud of it. And of course, I was nervous as hell when it was released.

 

I mean, just because I think it’s good, doesn’t mean that it is. Would other readers like it? Would it help build my fan base? Or would it crash and burn?

 

Thankfully, almost every review Demon’s Daughter has gotten so far has been overwhelmingly positive. I’ve spent a lot of time reading author blogs and guest posts saying that you can’t please everyone, and I’ve accepted that. I’m sure that one of these days I’ll get a crushingly negative review that will be like a punch in the gut and make me question every little thing I do, but reviews are subjective.

 

General reader opinion however? Not so much.

 

I don’t have a large fan base. Barely a handful that I can claim in confidence. But as it steadily grows, I understand that their opinions matter to me. They’re the ones who are going to talk to their friends and other readers about my books and recommend them. They’re the ones who are going to help my career continue. I don’t want to let them down, and with the sequel to coming Demon’s Daughter in December 2016, I’m nervous about what they think.

 

Do I think the sequel is good? Absolutely. But do I know their minds intimately enough to know exactly what they’re looking for and wanting? Of course not. And the truth is, I can’t. Either they’ll like the sequel, or they don’t. Obviously, I’m going to work myself to the bone to impress them, but in the end, I’m going to try not to stress too much about it.

 

Because I have two other books series I’m working on to stress about.

 

I’m not a writer who wants to stick to a certain book for forever. I have too many ideas I want to try and expand on, movies in my head that I want to put on paper. Some will appeal to my slowly growing fan base, some won’t. I’m not in control of that. All I know is that I have a story I want to write and share with other avid readers. I want them to feel the same excitement I feel when they get to the next page. I want to help them escape reality for a little bit and get lost in a world of deadly magic and dangerous fun.

 

Which is why, when my anxiety kicks in, I can take a step back, breathe, and tell myself that it will be okay. I’m taking a risk, and it’s part of the writing business. Could I fail? Definitely. Could I also continue to have growing success? Most definitely.

 

I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t love the little ego and confidence boosters that come with good reviews and readers asking for more. But what I really, truly, deeply love is writing. For me, it’s a drug with a never-ending high. Regardless of what others think, I’m going to put my story out there. I’ll take those risks and be proud that I gave it a shot, no matter what anyone else tells me.

 

Because I could spend my time fretting about what other people think, or I could focus on the story in front of me and give it my all.

 

I think it’s obvious which the better option is.
