Book Showcase: Earth quarantined by D L Richardson
About the Book:
The year is 2355. The deadly virus that killed millions of people is gone, thanks to the quarantine measures put in place by the Criterion, an alien species who appeared just in time to save the human race. In exchange for complying with their tough control measures, the Criterion promised us the technology for interstellar travel. We’ve done all they’ve asked, yet we’re still on Earth with no way of getting into deep space. The Criterion are lying to us. What they don’t know is that we’re lying to them...

Kethryn Miller is an award-winning actress, but nothing will prepare her for the role she’ll take on when a strange woman who shouldn’t be alive turns up in the city, threatening to expose the lies that have kept peace on Earth for 200 years.

Interview with Jeff Bond

Interview with Jeff Bond, Author of The Winner Maker


Interview with Jeff Bond, Author of The Winner Maker


What genre do you write and why?

I write in a range of genres, but most of my books—broadly speaking—are thrillers. The Winner Maker is on the character-driven/upmarket end of the range, while my follow-up, Blackquest 40, is more of a go-go thriller. I also have a big, Indiana Jones style adventure book in the works, as well as a political thriller. I’ve even kicked around the idea of a space opera series.

Interview with Jeff Bond, Author of The Winner Maker
Amazon - Goodreads
The Winner Maker tells the story of a polarizing high-school teacher gone missing, a story Kirkus Reviews calls “thrilling…an exhilarating and emotionally astute mystery.”
What formats is the book available in?
The Winner Maker will be available on 12/1/2018 in paperback, ebook, and audiobook formats.
Who are your favourite authors?
Gillian Flynn, Tana French, Harlan Coben, Jonathan Franzen, Nick Hornby.
Where can people find out more about you and your writing?
At my website, www.jeffbondbooks.com
Why do you think readers are going to enjoy your book?

The Winner Maker is unique in that it delivers high-octane thrills and reversals in the style of Harlan Coben or James Patterson, but does it using complex, likable characters you’ll recognize from real life.

I thought Kirkus captured this well: “Bond collapses two distinct literary genres into one seamless novelistic whole: a mystery and an emotional drama…The novel's central mystery is thrilling, but the true spine of the tale is the fragile connections between the past Winners, who must not only investigate Fiske's disappearance, but also the authenticity of their lives and friendships.”

Where can a reader purchase your book?

You can pick up The Winner Maker from Amazon, Barnes & Noble (online and select physical locations), and several independent bookstores across the country.           

Interview with Jeff Bond, Author of The Winner Maker
What is your work in progress? Tell us about it.

My follow-up is called Blackquest 40. It’s a fresh take on the Die Hard formula about San Francisco tech workers whose office is locked down for a forty-hour corporate training exercise—or so they’re told as the story begins. I’m just finishing final edits and plan a mid-May release.

What books or authors have most influenced your life?

At three different points in my life, I read a story that completely reinvigorated my passion for books. In college, War and Peace. Around twenty-five, The Corrections. And closer to thirty-five, Gone Girl.

When you’re not writing, how do you spend your time?

I have nine- and six-year-old daughter, for whom I’m the primary caregiver. They get me in nearly all my non-writing time. When I do have a moment away from the laptop and kids, I try to catch a game of basketball.

About the book:

Magic is easy.

That’s what Glolindir thought, until he came across his first real monster.

Luckily, he survived, thanks to his new “friends.”

Lloyd, the reckless young warrior with blades of fire.

Seth, the sarcastic halfling who might be an assassin.

Aksel, the genius little gnome whose very touch can heal.

Little did they know that things were about to go from bad to worse.

After one hundred and fifty years of relative peace, dark forces stir around the little town of Ravenford—monsters, black magic, creatures of the night.

The only thing standing between Ravenford and certain destruction is this band of young misfits.

Interview with Tamara Veitch and Rene DeFazio, authors of The Emissary


Interview with Tamara Veitch and Rene DeFazio, authors of The Emissary
Tell us about your latest book.
When the world collapses from a Golden Age into one of chaos and strife, mankind’s salvation lies in the hands of eternal Emissaries — guardians chosen to protect the secrets of a sacred, ancient civilization and to guide humanity back to enlightenment even as its darkest hour approaches. Marcus and Theron are two lovers bound by an eternal and unshakable bond. As a series of catastrophic events nearly destroys their world, the two -- along with a chosen few -- become Emissaries destined -- over the course of 13,000 years and through many reincarnations -- to lead humanity into an era of peace and prosperity as foretold by the Elders of their race. But the forces of evil have taken possession of one man, Helghul, who relentlessly pursues Marcus and Theron through time, determined to destroy them and ruin all hope for salvation.
The Emissary, Book I in The One Great Year Series, tracks Marcus’s epic adventure across centuries of human civilization to present day, where envoys of darkness gather around them, threatening to bury the life-giving secrets of Atitala forever. Good and evil come to blows and the future of mankind hangs in the balance.  
What formats is the book available in?
The Emissary is available in paperback, E-Book and Audiobook. We are excited to release our first audiobook. We narrated the book together and Rene’s extensive acting and voiceover background made a huge difference! It was wonderful to read the words and especially the dialogue the way we heard it when we wrote it.

What advice do you have for other writers?
Read and write as much as you can and if there is an author, or a single line that you think is really well written and resonates with you, dissect it and figure out why. Every writer is influenced by others, but find your own voice by taking the best of what you learn from others. In writing The Emissary, and our entire series, we have been influenced by classic writers like Dickens and Austen and modern writers like Rowling and King.

What's the best thing about being a writer?
Our favourite thing about being writers is the constant creativity. Even beyond the actual planning, researching and writing of the novels, the creativity continues. We try to give our readers a very personal and entertaining look inside our writing, so with our video blog, social media posts, meme’s audiobook narration, guest blogs and working on storyboards for the book trailers, we have  no shortage of opportunities to create!

Where can people find out more about you and your writing?
To find out more about us and our writing please visit www.onegreatyear.com, We have begun doing an informal Video Blog for readers and writers and we hope to have weekly updates of our vlog affectionately called The Emissary’s Journey to Becoming a Bestseller.

Who is you favourite character in your book and why?
We are two authors, so there are two answers: Tamara’s favourite character is SartaƱa. She is a high priestess in a conquered village who faces incredible tragedy and suffering, yet finds it within herself to return to hope and to make a difference in her small corner of the world. Like Tamara, she is a mother, and exploring that powerful love connection was especially meaningful for her.
Rene’s favourite character is Quinn. Quinn is Marcus, reincarnated 13,000 years after the fall of the Golden Age in Atitala. He’s been reincarnated an exhausting number of times, but somehow his passion for Theron and for helping humanity continues. It all starts with present day Quinn and Rene likes that even after all his lifetimes and with all of his knowledge, Quinn still struggles with the same life dilemmas we all do: finding love, keeping it, and not losing hope in an increasingly chaotic world.

Where can a reader purchase your book?
The Emissary is available absolutely everywhere in the USA and Canada: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indigo/Chapters, and independent bookstores. We have excellent distribution through Two Rivers Ingram so if it is not in stock, it is an easy book to order.
                                                      
Interview with Tamara Veitch and Rene DeFazio, authors of The Emissary
How do you research your books?
We have been researching and writing the Emissary and the series for nine years now. We have consulted encyclopedias, books on philosophy, history, theoretical physics, alternative history, spirituality, metaphysics, geography, the internet, and personal interviews. We have traveled the world visiting ancient sites, museums and locations. In the Emissary one of the lifetimes takes place in 800 BCE at Stone-at-center. Currently, this location is known as Tiahuanaco, Bolivia and is home to impressive ruins that both confound and inspired the imagination. We believe that by visiting the locations we can truly bring the essence and feeling of the landscape to life for the reader.

What is your work in progress? Tell us about it.
Our work in progress is threefold. Book II, The Emerald Tablet is set for release February 12, 2019 so soon we will have signed off on all of the final edits and have begun recording for the audiobook.  We will be doing all of the narration and character voices for the second book as we have for The Emissary. It turned out amazingly well, thanks in no small part to Rene’s excellent training as an actor. At the same time, we are well underway writing Book III in the Series. Book III picks up where The Emissary and The Emerald Tablet end, but takes the series in a very unexpected and exciting direction, still in keeping with the original characters but exploring new possibilities.

What books or authors have most influenced your life?
What if human civilization is far older than we have been taught and human existence cycles? The alternative view of world history laid out in Graham Hancock’s non-fiction book Fingerprints of the Gods was the initial inspiration for the novel The Emissary. Rene was backpacking the ancient sites in Egypt, England, Indonesia and others when he read the book and it inspired him to place characters in that world. Further research into the Great Year or Yuga Cycle in The Holy Science by Sri Yukteswar added to our story. By incorporating Yukteswar and Hancock’s notions, and  having our characters reincarnated over 26,000 years, it opens The Emissary and The One Great Year Series to endless, entertaining possibilities.
