#Paranormal Author Feature: Debbie Herbert

Thanks letting me visit with your readers today Noree! I decided to share some of the most asked questions I get.

Why do you write about mermaids?

I see mermaids as symbols of feminine beauty and strength. My theory is that even (or especially) young girls are drawn to the whole idea of mermaids because archetypically they represent power balanced with maidenly grace. Besides, who wouldn’t want to be a beautiful mermaid playing with dolphins all day long? I’ve always loved the ocean and beaches and as a child fantasized about what magic might lay deep beneath the water.

What books have been published?

So far two of my four books contracted with Harlequin have been published.

Siren’s Secret: In the dark waters of an Alabama bayou, two deadly secrets collide. A mermaid witnesses a serial killer disposing the body of his latest victim. He can’t afford to let her live to tell the tale. She can’t afford to let a human reveal her true identity.

With each becoming the hunter and the hunted, a lethal game ensues.

Caught in the middle is the sheriff who suspects his girlfriend is keeping secrets and knows something about the killer terrorizing the bayou he’s sworn to protect.

Siren’s Treasure: Takes up the story of Shelly’s cousin Jet, and is scheduled to be released this fall by Harlequin Nocturne. In many ways, Jet is the opposite of Shelly. She’s physically strong and mentally tough but nevertheless, has a hidden vulnerability that’s exposed when her ex-boyfriend pirate is released from prison and returns to the bayou.

It’s The Hunt for Red October meets Southern Gothic.

Book Three of the series, Siren’s Call, will be Lily’s story. Lily is the mysterious siren who enchants men with her voice . . . until she meets the one man impervious to her charms. This book will be released in 2015.

What are the five best things about being a writer?

a. The flexible hours

b. The sloppy – er – casual work attire

c. Satisfaction of creative expression

d. It’s exciting – you never know what might show up in the next email from a reader or editor or agent. 

What scene did you have the most fun writing?

In SIREN’S TREASURE, I have a scene where the main character, a shape-shifting mermaid named Jet, is swimming with a captive dolphin and discovers why the dolphin has been so sick.

Tell us about yourself

I’m a paranormal romance writer, mermaid lover and college football fanatic (Roll Tide!) I live in the Deep South, have been happily married for over three decades and have two grown sons. I truly believe love is magical, pizza and diet Coke are dietary staples, and that cats are the coolest creatures roaming the planet.

Thanks for letting me visit! Readers – what is your favorite paranormal romance character and why? I’m giving away a free Kindle copy of either SIREN’S SECRET or SIREN’S TREASURE to one commenter. USA only.

#Fantasy Author Feature: Jeri Smith

Hello! My name is Jeri Smith, known now in the writing world as J.R. Smith. Allow me to introduce to you my debut novel - a project that has been in the works since 2008. It is entitled Fate’s Crossing (The Black Blood Legacies #1). It is a three part series that follows Liana Scott and Sean Stevens through their journey to either secure the worldly balance or to postpone the inevitable. It hit me upside the head one day in October 2008 and just begged to be written down. I felt like I was losing my mind it was bothering me so bad. This is why Liana feels like she is losing her mind in the beginning until everything is explained. I thought it would be an interesting way to manifest my writing process directly in the series. BBL started off as something quite different and upon merging it with another side project, it took off like fire and became what you see today. Part 2, the complications, The Midnight Trial should hopefully be out by the end of 2015 with part 3 Full Circle coming by the end of the next year (2016).

In the precise moment that she stepped on a plane from Tulsa, OK to Los Angeles, CA, Liana Scott’s race against her own fate began. Bombarded with disembodied voices, lucid dreams and waking visions, Liana, 24, finds herself feeling like she is losing her mind. When she crosses paths with Sean Stevens, 26, and is put under his protection, her reality swiftly changes from civilian to the next possible martyr. Sponsored by her friends and family and seemingly reliving a past not her own, she must fulfill an ancient prophecy and go on a worldly journey in order to see it through. First, Sean and his fellow members of The Order Faction must make sure she is ready for the task ahead. Preparing the Valten and keeping her safe is only phase one of a three-part tale. Only one thing has the ability to condemn this mission to failure: the ultimate star-crossed love.

Do not forget!

Fate’s Crossing (The Black Blood Legacies) (Volume 1) is available through multiple sources!!

Hello minions! I have a great opportunity for anyone interested. I plan on releasing A Dose of Brimstone in July 2015 and I am looking for interested ARC Readers.

So first, let me explain what an ARC is:
An ARC is an Advance Reader Copy of the book that is given out for the purpose of reviews. Theses are not the final copy. In most cases the ARC will have been written, revised, and edited, however it has probably not gone through final copy-editing and proofreading. There may be a few mistakes and errors.

So, as I said I'm looking for interested readers who are willing to leave reviews at the release. I will be sending out ARC copies on May 1st. The sign up sheet is HERE.

Here are a few requests I have of my ARC readers:

1. I would like the ARC readers to have previously read A Prescription for Delirium. A Dose of Brimstone is the second book in the series so this make sense, right? To help with this, I'm willing to give out free copies for anyone who hasn't read A Prescription for Delirium who is willing to read it and review. There is a place on the form to respond if you would like a copy I will send those out before May.

2. Be willing to post a review on Amazon the day of release. I will send a email reminder at this time. If possible I love a review posted on Goodreads at any time.

3. An interest in the book. I know, this seems like a no brainer, but you would be surprised. This is an Urban Fantasy/Dark Fantasy with a lot of action and a little romance. It is an adult book that contains violence, language, and sex.

Try a little Brimstone to bring out the demon in you.

Gabby thought the brimstone drug was destroyed. However, now a multitude of demons plague New York, and from the look of their scaly skin, the drug has taken hold of the Big Apple. When Gabby finally uncovers the mastermind behind it all, she realizes this battle won't be easily won. Faust is unlike any demon Gabby has seen before, capable of possessing multiple entities at once; he’s even manipulated a corporation of vampires into spreading their own version of brimstone. If Gabby and the Van Helsing Organization don't put an end to Faust's plan, it'll soon be Hell on Earth.

One again, the signup form is HERE for anyone interested. :)

Come, the Dark 2Rose desperately wants to escape the abuse of the father who impregnated her and the dark spirits that haunt her life. Being thrust from Georgia 1961 into the era of Salem’s infamous witch trials isn’t what she had in mind, and now her daughter is left hopelessly out of reach.
The only way to return to her daughter is by facing certain death to banish the dark spirits that plague Salem. If she doesn’t eliminate these dark spirits in time, they will destroy civilization and trap her in this strange new place, ages away from her daughter.
Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will force her to choose between the only man who has never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.
A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.
TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with the sensitive subject of sexual abuse.
