Brand new book for charity

Hello Readers,

I have great news for you! I am part of a new anthology with three authors. We created this book with all romance stories- the theme? The current pandemic. It’s love during the current pandemic and highlights of my story are below. All proceeds from this book will go to a charity fighting COVID-19!

** Pre-order your copy of our book and enjoy my story ***

My story contribution is titled “When You Least Expect It.”  It is a sweet romance between two former high school classmates who meet up again years later. 

Collin used to assist Katerina (Kat to most) with Math when she needed it.  He always thought Kat was beautiful and she was one of the few that would say “Hi” to him in the halls when others didn’t acknowledge him.  While Kat was popular, Collin was more of a loner but fate has granted him a second chance for Kat is back in town-  

Delivering medical supplies for Kat’s ailing mother, Collin gets to know Kat and they talk.  The Pandemic has made things difficult in terms of visiting and dating but Kat shows an interest and they soon become friends.  Still, Collin has a secret- a hidden topic he doesn’t like to talk about.  His disability is something few understand but Kat does.  Will she take a chance on a man who never thought he had one?   Or will she fall, instead, for Connor- the rival after her heart? I loved writing the story with a person with a disability and though I never name his disability, you get hints of it throughout the story enough to tell you what it is.  I think you will love this sweet story and I look forward to hearing your thoughts about the story.

Ten minutes with Des Birch

Hi all!  Hope you are having a lovely day.  I am back with another fabulous author to share with you.  See his interview below and make sure you grab a copy of his book, Beyond Dark Waters!  Take care, my friends.  Until next time..

  1. Tell me a bit about one of your favorites that you wrote.

That is a difficult as I wrote a series of three. Basically I have introduced the concept of a Quinling: a gift from nature whereby one species is given the opportunity to enter into five species in turn, leading quests and seeing problems from a different point of view.

Book one (Beyond Dark Waters) is about a boy who falls into a lake. His quests cover subjects from friendship and bullying, to the energy cycle and environmental issues.

Book two (Above and Beyond Dark Waters) sees a girl take to the air. She learns leadership, kinship as well as how to handle life when everything is against you

Book three grows up the boy from book one in the real world. The lessons he learned as a Quinling should have kept him on the right path, but misplaced trust and naivety see his world fall apart when it had only just begun. This book takes the boy from being a straight A student, to being thrown out of school with a criminal record. It takes him through the fight to make himself a good life. It tackles what it is like to grow up, fall in love, marry, raise a family, enjoy a granddaughter (the girl from book two), have close family members die and finally face death himself. I have seen grown women in tears over parts of this book.

2.  Writing is a difficult endeavor. What makes you continue to write?

Writing is something I have always done. When my children were young I wrote them stories. When close friends died I wrote pieces of comfort for their families. When a girl who called me Dad (but not a blood relative) was dying of cancer at the tender age of 32, I wrote her a story to take away her fears. Writing is my preferred form of expression (since I no longer play Rugby Union) and I have written for weddings, funerals and other events. Books are a natural extension and I like to allow my passion for the natural world to seep through the pages.

3.     What do you look forward to every day?

Having just turned 65, waking up at all is a gift. I look forward to Julie’s (my wife) first smile of the day. I look forward to sorting the thoughts in my mind into some kind of order so I can put them on paper. I look forward to sunrise, and wonder if the wild creatures around me are enjoying it as well. Mostly, I look forward to the gift of another day.

4.     How do you define success? What makes you successful?

Success to me is contentment in most things I do.  There might be some people who are content with everything, but I believe they are few and far between. Writing success is when I read a passage from one of my books, smile to myself and say: “Yes, that’s exactly how I meant to say it; that’s the effect I wanted to create.

5.     Any tips for a new writer?

Learn all the rules of the English language (or whatever language you favour). Don’t worry that you’re not following someone else’s rules. Rules do not make good books. Passion does. Be brave, because with every manuscript you submit, you are sending out a piece of yourself to be enjoyed, hurt or abused. Write what makes you happy and don’t worry about how fast or slow someone else writes. Know your story before you begin and let nobody put you off. Writing is a personal quest, and only you know what works for you.

The incredible R.M. James

Hello again lovely readers!

I am back again with another fantastic author!  Check out my interview with R.M. James, here~

RM James Profile picture

 

Tell me a bit about one of your favorites that you wrote.

The female character in Firefly Kayla’s Gift is a firecracker with a temper from hell. She has been through emotional turmoil living with her abusive husband that nearly destroyed her life. Her story is about emotional abuse which is happening quite a lot. I’m telling her story because she overcame the mistreatment.

Writing is a difficult endeavor

Writing is not easy, honestly, but if you have a wild imagination and love to read then it wouldn’t be as difficult. But I’ll say that writers block can be a booger at times!

What makes you continue to write?

The characters in my head. It’s almost like they took a life of their own and want their stories told.

What do you look forward to every day?

First to thank God for another day then sit in front of the computer and give my characters free reign. However, now their story is marinating in my head because I’m preparing for my dissertation for the doctor degree I’m pursuing.

How do you define success? 

How I define success is to never give up. Failure will always be a given if you don’t give up but it’s an opportunity to find what works.

What makes you successful?

Me? Success is never allowing failure to define me and keep pushing until I hit that goal!

Any tips for a newbie writer?

My advice for a writer is this, take your time and polish your work. Make sure all the i’s are dotted because you always want to sell a good product. Writing takes time and so should the end product. Lastly, never get discouraged when the manuscript is turned down by a publisher. It happens.
