Armand told me to do so. Armand is the All-father in the Asgard of Horror. I am Thor. Or his robot slave. I forget.

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it?

This Plague of Days, Season 3 comes out this spring. It’s the finale, so I’ll also release This Plague of Days, The Complete Three Seasons.  

 TPOD season 1 ecover

Quick description of it.

It’s the apocalypse and an autistic boy is our champion against dark forces. The zombies aren’t supernatural. The humans get that way. It’s epic and operatic and goes great with sandwiches.

 

Something unique about it.

The autistic boy that’s supposed to save us from extinction hardly ever talks, and when he does, it’s in Latin. So it’s horror and suspense and a Latin primer. It’s funny in spots, too, between the slayings. Oh, and Season 3 gets into our place in the universe, so there’s that.

How did you get involved in the Authors Supporting Our Troops event?

A friend shared it on their page, and I thought it was a great thing to do!

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it?

I write fantasy. My last release was a collection of short stories (A Stab at the Dark, Looking at the Light). I’ve got a fantasy/romance novella coming out in spring 2014 titled “Fin’s Magic”.

 

Quick description of it.

Another thrilling story by the international best-selling author of “Mark of the Successor”!

Fin depends on her companions to keep her safe…and out of chains. As one of the Amari, the only race that can harness magic, she longs for a normal life. One where she didn’t have to constantly look over her shoulder, and she could fall in love.

Alaric fell hard for Fin from the moment he laid his eyes on her three years ago. He swore an oath to keep her safe, even if it meant his life. But he knew that any relationship he could hope to have with her would be on her terms.

When a king offers them the chance at a normal life, Fin’s cautious. And rightly so, as there are others who think she’s the one to lead the Amari from a life of slavery.

 

Something unique about it.

It’s not straight fantasy or romance. I also believe that the romantic pair should stay in love once they realize it. None of this does he love me why isn’t she nicer to me fluff. Once they know it, they stay true to each other.

It’s not out yet, but there will be a pre-sale on Smashwords soon! Just waiting on the cover art!

A multi-purpose reference guide to help new boaters and old salts get the most out of their investment. Inside you’ll find many tips, stories, definitions, and references to a boaters everyday needs while spending time out on the waters with family and/or friends or making that decision to purchase either their first or next boat. These facts are being represented through a series of interviews with eleven marine industry experts in their field.

Your short Bio.

Robin G. Coles is a passionate marine enthusiast and sailor who has interviewed countless industry experts as well as visited, interviewed personnel at, written about, and photographed hundreds of marine ports in the US and abroad.

The ocean both scares and exhilarates her, as it should any boater—one minute it is as calm and smooth as glass; the next a stark raving maniac, as crazy as life itself.

Though Robin has had many challenges in her life, she has always managed to bounce back. Her time on the ocean has been her most rewarding.

Robin has authored a newspaper column and a variety of articles, newsletters, case studies, reports, and technical documents about boating and non-boating topics.

Robin has been a shutterbug from as far back as she can remember. Her photographs have been featured on the cover of the 2008 Winthrop Phonebook, at the 2009 IPEVO show in Las Vegas, and on a local real estate website. To see/read her boating related media, go to TheNauticalLifestyle.com/TransientTalk. Her non-boating related media can be found at RGColesandCo.com.

In Robin’s spare time she loves to walk the beach, photograph a variety of subjects, read good detective stories, travel, cook, crochet hats for preemie babies and shawls for four-to-six-year olds in cancer wards, write, and sail Boston Harbor.

Robin spends her time these days between Boston, MA and Florida, where she sails and works with business owners around the world via satellite phone and internet.

How did you get involved in the Authors Supporting Our Troops event?

I saw Armand’s post about it on Facebook and as a Veteran myself I knew I had to be a part of this. Having spent some time overseas I know how important it is to receive packages like this from home.

 

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it?

Reprisal: Vengeance knows no boundary. Psychological horror with a paranormal twist. 

 reprisalmed

 

Quick description of it.

On the surface her plan was brilliant in its simplicity. Return home, take the place of her twin sister, and live out the rest of her life in relative peace. Unfortunately even the best laid plans had their flaws and this one involved Margaret’s alter ego Candice, who was hell bent on leaving a bloody trail in her wake. But Candice failed to anticipate one simple fact.

The dead always got their revenge.

 

Something unique about it.

I took a paranormal approach to the issue of a split personality. Is it an aberration of the mind? Or a spiritual possession of the soul?

Your short Bio.

Richard acquired a taste for reading at an early age that became a voracious appetite as he grew older. He reads every day, his tastes having become more eclectic, with his interests ranging from horror to historical narratives. The only thing he really looks for is a good story. His goal as a writer is to give the reader a story that will stay with them long after they’ve closed the cover of the book.

How did you get involved in the Authors Supporting Our Troops event?

I’m not really sure how I stumbled upon this event. I think either the event was shared or I was invited to participate by another author, but I don’t remember which one. Sad, isn’t it? But I’m thrilled to be able to help thank our servicemen and women for their sacrifice in some small way.

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it?

My latest release is titled “Divergent Lives.” It is a psychological thriller.

 Divergent Lives JPEG One Page Cover

Quick description of it.

This is the story of two people – fraternal twins R.J. and Adina who were separated at birth. Both are outwardly successful; each from seemingly divergent backgrounds.

Both are sociopaths; one is a serial killer. 

 

Something unique about it.

There are two main characters and each of their stories is told in parallel. It is an exploration of the nature vs. nurture theory.

In addition, it also shows how anyone could be a sociopath.

Your short Bio.

Native New Yorker, Minnie Lahongrais unwittingly kick-started her second career in May of 2010 when she began writing an urban fantasy tale intended to help her cope with the death of her father. November of that year, she set the story aside to immerse herself in the annual madness of NaNoWriMo, meeting the challenge head on. Her first novel, “Sinner’s Ride” was published in Spring, 2011. That summer, she found herself obsessed with the story idea for “Divergent Lives.”

Currently, she switches between a “happily for now” story whose working title is “Skin Deep” and the urban fantasy she began at the outset of her journey. Currently there are four books planned for that series.

Ms. Lahongrais lives in New York City. She finds time to write every day and spends her free time with her family.
