Book Blitz: Out of the Field by Larry A. Lee #promo #memoir #nonfiction #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @mkwebsiteandseo

 



A Memoir full of Family Betrayal, Homelessness, Survival, Forgiveness and Love

Memoir

Date Published: August 1, 2019

Publisher: ‎Mindstir Media



LARRY A. LEE’S JOURNEY TO CLAIM HIS SOUL began at seven years old when he chose to defend his mother against his alcoholic father’s physical abuse in Unionville, Connecticut. ­ Three years later, his mother passed away from infectious hepatitis. Before her passing, Larry promised his mother he would grow up to be a “Good Man.”

Since the age of ten, life undoubtedly threw itself against Larry time and time again. All forms of unspeakable torments and challenges made up his adolescence in Burlington, Connecticut. At eighteen years old, while he was living in a field in Oklahoma City, a single act of kindness saved him, and it forever changed his life.

And so it was, his journey of ten million miles to keep the promise he made his mother led him to a seven-year-old boy, who adopted him. Larry held love in his hand, and then he conquered his world.

Interview

What is the hardest part of writing your books? Sometimes not knowing where to take the story can be really hard.  I write in a journal long-hand, so it helps me get beyond the blocks.

 

What songs are most played on your Ipod?  I get in moods.  Sometimes all I want to listen to is Aretha or the Grateful Dead.  Other times, I will let it shuffle and listen to anything. 

 

 

Do you have critique partners or beta readers? No.

 

 

What book are you reading now? I am informally working on a sequel for Peacocks.

 

 

How did you start your writing career?  I always wanted to write a novel.  I teach English and Special Education.  I was laid off in 2010 and had no more excuses.  I used my time off as a means of pursuing a dream, and now 8 books later, I’m still writing.

 

 

Tell us about your next release. Peacocks, Pedestals, and Prayers is a horror/paranormal novel about a fallen angel who wants to break away from Satan.  He owns a chain of advertising agencies and uses mind control to get people to buy his clients’ products.  Another sub-plot consists of two sisters who lost their mother.  They learn she had a secret life.  The two sub-plots weave into a story about Nephilim.

Release Blitz: Pretty Deadly by Kelsey Josund #promo #releaseday #giveaway #darkfantasy #fantasy #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @kelseyjosund

 

 


Dark Fantasy

Date Published: October 26, 2021

Publisher: Darkstroke Books



Cinna would quite literally kill for the throne.

She’s spent years forced to serve her wealthy cousins rather than attend society events alongside them, waiting for the chance to prove herself and exact revenge. When a ball is announced at the castle, promising to bring many powerful people to town, she seizes the opportunity to strike.

She bets her best friend, a small-time thief and con-man, that she can land a greater score the night of the ball than he can. They embark on parallel heists. But as their plots unfold, things begin to unravel: by the end of the night, the castle’s on lock down, a duchess is dead, a mansion has burnt to the ground, and Cinna hasn’t stolen anything. Or has she stolen something more valuable than gold and jewels?


Excerpt

How interesting, Cinna thought. She had spent so many hours bent over a stove in the kitchen or crouched before the hearth, stoking flames carefully that refused to light. But she had prepared: this house was waiting tinder, ready to be consumed.

She couldn’t hear the screams over the roar of the flames, but surely they were there. Strangely, she didn’t feel cheated to have not heard their voices. It was fine that they died in silence.

It did not take long for the neighbors to begin streaming out of their own houses, and she did hear their screams. They swarmed around the flames, politely mute once they realized they could not do anything, full of awe before the enormity of the fire. Cinna blended into the crowd, nearly invisible in her costume.

At last, just as she had always pledged she would, she watched the house fall in on itself.


About the Author

I am a software engineer and author living and working in Silicon Valley, California. I studied computer science at Stanford University, but I’ve always loved stories in all their forms. I approach writing fiction the same way I approach writing code: I like to know where it’s going, but I want to figure out the details as I go along. Good software is a lot like a good story, full of neat and clever solutions to tricky problems, beautiful at a granular level but also from a distance.

Originally from Seattle, I love getting outdoors and living in places that allow me to escape to the mountains on the weekends, and I care deeply about the ecosystems that humans impact and that impact us. My writing explores these issues while also following classic coming-of-age arcs in science fiction and fantasy. I’m also very interested in stories and characters that complicate the traditional and familiar, leading me to fairytale retellings from unexpected angles.

Release Blitz: The Eagle's Lady by Miriam Newman #promo #releaseday #giveaway #historical #fantasy #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @miriamnewman

 

 

Historical Romance / Fantasy Romance

Publisher: DCL Publications

Date Published:10-22-2021


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


Son of an impoverished, dying chieftain, Ari raided for booty and slaves so he could feed his people. He was a heathen, probably a murderer, and it was a sin to lie with him.


About the Author


Hailing from Pennsylvania, Miriam Newman has developed a prolific writing career that began in her twenties, although she published her very first novel some time later in 2009. She was published in poetry before catching the romance writing bug. Fantasy poetry driven by myths and legends has been her passion for as long as she can remember and she brings that background to her writing, along with a lifelong addiction to horses, an 18 year career in various areas of psychiatric social services, and many trips to Ireland, where she nurtures her muse. Her published works range from contemporary fantasy romance to fantasy historical, futuristic, science fiction and historical romance. It was in Ireland that she wrote The King’s Daughter. Ireland is her favorite place in this world. “I connect there with something I can’t even explain,” she says fondly.

Miriam spent many years working in Social Services, and after retirement, she found herself working part-time in local government. Currently, she lives in rural Pennsylvania with a “motley crew” of rescue animals. Her passion for animal rescue and fostering has included a number of fur babies, from horses to dogs to a pig that appeared on her porch one morning. Also a lover of great books, the one that she finds most responsible for her venture into fantasy and recommends is The Once and Future King by T.H. White.
