Interview - Binding Circumstance by Kelley Griffin #romanticthriller #romanticsuspense



Are you currently binge watching anything on Netflix, Hulu? What keeps you glued to the screen? 

Lord, I wish! The last series I binged was Once, the fairy tales gone awry series on Netflix. There are so many good series out there to watch, but I don’t watch much TV. Five kids and a husband, full time job and trying to write books doesn’t leave much time for TV! Plus, when I sit down, I fall asleep 😊

Do you prefer movies or TV series? 

Oh, definitely movies! My retirement plan includes camping full time and going into the closest town for a movie at least once or twice a week. I love all of it, the sounds, the smells of hot buttered popcorn, the dimming of the lights and being entertained for almost two hours. I even love the trailers in the beginning!

When it comes to reading do you prefer standalones or series? 

I’m more of a standalone gal, but there are many books that I’ve wished had continued to become a series. I’m writing my first two series’ now, and it’s not as easy as I thought it’d be. But I love to get fully immersed in a book or series.

Do you prefer to start new book series when the first book is released, or do you want for a several books in the series to be released so you can binge read? 
Oh, good question. You know, I waited until the 2nd Harry Potter was out and the third one was just around the corner to start book one in that series. When I read the Left Behind series, I always made sure I had at least the next two books on the shelf.

What are some of your hobbies, interests or guilty pleasures? 

I love camping. I love the idea that there’s no laundry staring me in the face, no place I need to be and I love the smell of campfire. Time stands still when we camp. I love to kayak early in the morning too. Oh, and pickleball.

What's your guilty “nerd” pleasure? 

I get excited inside a library. Always have. Like a physical reaction. And I really like writing out a budget. I know it’s nerdy, but it makes me feel happy to see that we’re making headway on our budget!! 

Have you ever peeked at the ending of a book? 

NEVER!! If I accidentally read a spoiler, I won’t read the book. I’m weird that way!!

When it comes to your own writing are you a plotter or a pantster? 

I’m a pantster to the rapture! BUT, I’m finding with a series, you must be both. I really need to know where I want the story to end so that I don’t shoot myself in the foot in the first book. It’s a weird feeling since I’m such a pantster. I’ve even begged my characters NOT to do something because I didn’t want to write it! The Characters lead the way in my imagination. I just type it in 😊

What do you like to read? Let me know! Come find me on Facebook, Twitter, IG or my website. My first novel, Binding Circumstance came out in late July and currently has 26 5-star ratings on Amazon!! You can find it here: https://tinyurl.com/y27pqzvc

EXCERPT
When Leslie emerged, her anger remained, although most of it was aimed at herself. She’d let Christine’s words get under her skin. Truth was, she had become mousy. In high school, she’d been headstrong, bold, and daring. Then in college, thanks to unwise decisions, unspeakable things happened. Because of those things, she’d become paranoid and cautious. If she was being honest, more than a little mousy.
That was the next item on her bucket list to change.
As she walked back toward the line, the drone of machines had lessened.
Frank’s skinny arms flailed around. He looked like a chicken fighting a snake. He spoke to a man, but because of the crowd gathered, the back of his head was the only visible body part. Angela too, appeared wild-eyed and pointing in her direction. Coffee churned in Leslie’s stomach. The crowd turned to stare as she trotted up.
Mr. Miller stood like ice. His eyes narrowed. A hush came over the crowd of extras. Folding his arms, he glared.
Great. What now?
She swallowed hard. Mr. Miller cleared his throat and grinned like a cat. Slowly, as if he had nowhere to be, he sauntered toward his prey, ready to pounce. “Miss Carroll,” he said, steepling his fingers, “how pleasant of you to join us. Did you have a relaxing break?”
She opened her mouth to explain. He held one finger in the air to silence her, then circled like a shark claiming its lunch. “Did you get autographs from anyone famous? Is that why you’re here, dear—to attract an actor? I hired you to do a job, not to fraternize with the famed.”
The thirty or so extras gaped with delight as the torture unfolded. Frank’s face was lined with pretend sympathy yet smug, while Angela’s seemed more humbled. Blood drained slowly from Leslie’s face, and her fists balled. Damn. Her only crime was not finding the bathroom. It wasn’t as if she sought out the crazy.
Mr. Miller circled one last time. He strutted a few feet from her, head cocked sideways. A faint smile drifted across his lips. Enjoying his assault, he resumed, “Miss Carroll, please share with the group precisely where you went for an hour and what you were doing?”
She opened her mouth to speak, but everything she wanted to say, sounded crazy. Then it hit her. Leslie cleared her throat and forced a smile. “Mr. Miller, I’d love to tell you where I’ve been, but, you see, I signed a non-disclosure agreement. I’m sure you’ll understand, the actors I ran into would appreciate my discretion.”
He reeled. Anger rolled off his skin like fog. His nostrils flared as he stomped back toward her. His face was inches from hers. “I had such high hopes for you, Miss Carroll. You came with such recommendation. Now I know you are not a team player, but someone who enjoys the spotlight. I’m afraid, I am going to have to ask you—”
Gasps from the crowd rang out before he finished. She knew. Knew someone walked up and stood behind her. Normal range, but again, too close for her.
“Mr. Miller?” Charlie’s familiar voice boomed.
Her back straightened as if someone poked her. Perhaps it was her imagination, but the warmth from his body radiated through the back of her thin shirt. Or she was having a hot flash twenty years too early.
His signature cologne, designed by someone else but stamped with his name, filled the air. A body-awakening musk mixed with a fresh rain. She shuddered. Instinct caused her to whirl around and step to the side, gaining a foot of distance between them. As she did, their eyes locked. Another chill racked her body. If she was lucky, he didn’t notice.
One quick look at Charlie’s head cocked to the side and the question in his eyes—he’d noticed.
Mr. Miller’s demeanor and voice changed, as if someone flipped a switch on his back. “Mr. Erickson, what a pleasure! To what do we owe this visit? Oh, I remember, you were to be measured today, weren’t you? Let me get my top assistant, Dana, and we will get that underway right now.”
He brushed past Leslie, shooting daggers, when Charlie stopped him.
“Mr. Miller, I’ve already been fitted by this young lady here.” He moved toward her, holding out an arm like an invitation for a side hug.
Great. He was a hugger. When she mirrored his movement, only backward, she crossed her arms and shot him an apologetic nod. Questions arose again in his eyes. But this time, a sign of understanding accompanied it.
Charlie shoved his hands into his pockets and examined her yet spoke to Mr. Miller. “She saved me time and embarrassment today.” Charlie’s gaze darted from the gawking crowd to Mr. Miller’s aggressive stance. Then he added, “I hope she was being commended for her efforts, rather than reprimanded.”
Charlie slid a long look at Mr. Miller.
Frank gaped, star struck, while Angela’s stare switched from the famous actor to Leslie and back.
Charlie turned toward her. “I didn’t realize—wait, did you say today is your first day?” He shook Mr. Miller’s hand. “Nice catch. She’s an excellent hire.”
Mr. Miller stammered, “Why…thank you, Mr. Erickson. That is generous of you. So Leslie measured you already?” Confusion laced his voice.
“Leslie,” Charlie repeated her name.
His slow, smooth voice rumbled with a touch of his southern drawl. Nothing could stop the flaming in her cheeks. Heat spread all the way to her ears. She wanted to disappear under the concrete floor. Her mind logged and registered all the exits. An old survival habit she couldn’t break.
Fidgeting, she moved a baby-step farther out of his reach. He’d already made her shudder and his mind-numbing scent mixed with his unwavering stare had her terrified he’d touch her, and yet wanting him to at the same time.
Yes, she was aware a costume professional by design must touch people. But it wasn’t her touching others that bothered her. It was not having control of someone else touching her. As long as other people stayed in their bubble, she was fine. But somehow, Charlie seemed unaware of the bubble rule.
“Yes, Leslie did an amazing job of putting up with my shenanigans.” He turned toward Mr. Miller. “Could I have a private word?”
Mr. Miller puffed up like a peacock. “Me? Well, of course, you can, Mr. Erickson.”
Chin raised a notch, he walked a few feet away from the crowd for their chat. When he returned, he waved his hand in dismissal of the crowd. Frank shrugged and turned. Angela actually smiled toward Leslie. She beamed back. They’d not be getting the better of her today.
Mr. Miller turned. His normal intimidating presence softened. “Miss Carroll, I owe you an apology. It was my understanding you’d gone missing.” He glared over at Frank and exhaled. “I should have considered the source. I had no idea you were recording measurements. Will you please accept my request for forgiveness?”
“Of course, sir.”
She offered her hand. Mr. Miller shook it as if it might bite him. Letting go, he raised one perfect eyebrow and added, “Interesting first day, wouldn’t you say?”
“Yes, sir.” She exhaled, deeply grateful to still have a job.
Straightening his suit jacket, he reverted to his more formal speech. “Mr. Erickson requested a private word with you as well. When you are finished, I would like for you to find Mrs. Godwin again and speak to her about your next assignment. That will be all, Miss Carroll.”
“Of course, sir.”
What does he want now? Leslie made her way from the crowd toward Charlie. He leaned against the edge of a drafting table. Strong arms were folded across his chest, his golden hair still messy, and his legs stretched out. He surveyed her as she came toward him, his eyes questioning, as if figuring out a puzzle. His I-told-you-so smile was enough to make anyone swoon, but she took a deep breath, squared her shoulders, and pressed her eyebrows together as she neared him.
He chuckled. Then in a low, sexy voice he said, “There she is. My elusive friend, Mousy—I mean Leslie.”
“Mr. Erickson.” She nodded.
“Charlie,” he stated, looking her dead in the eyes.
This was a strong-willed chess match she was determined to win. “Mr. Erickson—was there something you needed from me?”
“Not a fan, I take it?”
“Fan of what?”
“Me.”
She shrugged. “I guess so, why?”
He mimicked her shrug. “Just wondering. I know you’re not a fan of being touched.”
He’d nailed her in five seconds flat. Her hackles rose. “Did you need something?”
“You’re a mystery, that’s all. Most people in this town fight to stand next to an actor, name drop, snap pictures, you know the whole not-real fame thing.” He slid her a curious look. “But not you. It’s refreshing.”
She nodded, then raised her eyebrows as if to say, your point?
His smile faded, then rebounded as he mouthed the word “lunch.”
Her eyes narrowed. She cocked her head to the side as she placed both hands on her hips. “You expect me to fetch your lunch?”
He pushed off the table and took a cautious step toward her. Both hands raised in surrender, he looked hurt. “No, I want to take you to lunch. You know, for being discreet and not telling the world about the arrogant, pompous, windbag actor and his lunatic ex-girlfriend.”
She bit her lip. She wanted to full-out cackle. An unstoppable grin fought its way through. It radiated across her lips, erupting into giggles she had zero hope of controlling. He lowered his arms. His warm eyes danced with laughter along with her.
“I guess I should apologize for the pompous-windbag comment, eh?”
“No way,” he said. “Besides, it was cute.”
He examined her—too closely. The heat in his eyes caused warning bells to clang in her mind. Her laughter faded fast.
Clearing his throat, he continued, “Please let me take you to lunch. Come on, Slim, you gotta be hungry.” His boyish grin made her smile. “What do you say? They make a mean salad at the Canteen downstairs.”
Frank watched them with a mixture of respect and jealousy in his eyes. Perfect. Obviously, he was a fan of Charlie’s. Charlie didn’t notice. In fact, he didn’t seem to notice anything in the room but her. A few short years ago, she would’ve jumped at the chance to go to lunch with a famous actor.
Not now.
Shaking her head, she backed up. “Sorry. I just can’t. We’re slammed. Thanks anyway.” She turned on her heels toward the sea of human mannequins.
“Hey, wait.”
She turned back as he stepped close.
“I’m sorry you had to listen to all that—you know, before with Christine. She’s such a…” The struggle between being honest and being kind washed over his face. Charlie tilted his head up as if his answer hung in the rafters. He gave the impression he was searching for the vaguest, yet most correct word in the English language.
“Bitch?” Leslie offered, her lips curved upward.
“Yeah. That’s probably the best one.”
His wholesome laugh softened his jawline and lit up his eyes. She didn’t want to look away. He didn’t seem so intimidating or so famous anymore.
Charlie bent toward her. “Listen, can I buy you coffee and a salad to make it up to you? Please?”
She allowed no one except Nate and her father to touch her or be in her space. Charlie had weaseled his body closer to hers. Back inside her bubble. Breathe. Tiny beads of sweat trickled around her temple. He was only being polite, she reminded her brain.
“No thanks, I’m more of a peanut butter and jelly type of girl anyway.” Leslie backed away, winning and grinning. She spotted Dana waving from the other side of the room. “Mr. Erickson, I gotta go.” Walking away, she sensed a gaze on her rear. Something about him staring both excited and terrified her.
“Leslie?” he yelled.
She stopped in her tracks and turned, hating how it thrilled her when he called to her. Turning on his Hollywood charm, he declared, “It’s Charlie—and I will see you around.”

Interview - Merged by Jim and Stephanie Kroepfl #YASciFi



Are you currently binge watching anything on Netflix, Hulu (or elsewhere)? What keeps you glued to the screen?

We just finished the second season of “Stranger Things.” They did a great job of primarily making it a middle grade story, but the adults also had their own storyline which, importantly, still allowed the kids to solve the mystery and save the world. We love science fiction which has just enough plausibility that it could actually happen. And, all stories should contain some level of humor.

Do you prefer movies or TV series?

We tend to go for movies over TV series when it’s cold and snowy out. The structure of a good movie is very similar to that of a book, and we spend a lot of time analyzing movies to improve our craft. And, we love being carried away on a cinematography-enriched adventure, which very few TV series can pull off.

When it comes to reading do you prefer standalones or series?

Series are fun, as long as each book has a real ending. There’s nothing so frustrating as reaching the last chapter only to discover the story abruptly ends without any resolution whatsoever. We’ve stopped reading those authors.

Do you prefer to start new book series when the first book is released or do you want for a several books in the series to be released so you can binge read?

We tend to read the book in a series when it’s first released. Partly because we want to be on top of all the new things coming out, but also, we’re not patient enough to wait to read a great book. That’s why it’s so important to subtly remind the reader what happened in the previous story, because it’s often been years since they’d read it.

What are some of your hobbies, interests or guilty pleasures?

We have a two-year old rescue dog, Finn, who won’t let us forget our daily walks around the lake, which is a very good thing for all of us. Jim is a singer and guitar player, and plays locally in the duo “Martin and Taylor,” named after their guitars. Stephanie is an artist, and during football season she cheers on the Broncos while knitting socks for her friends and family. We both love traveling in Europe and getting immersed in the different cultures.

What's your guilty “nerd” pleasure?

We love “Star Trek”—all of them. The original TV show, the later shows (although we like “The Next Generation” best), the movies (good and bad), especially the last two Star Trek movies. Also, we’ll watch any movie about aliens or travel to another planet.

Have you ever peeked at the ending of a book?

Never. Seriously. Even the thought feels like sacrilege.

When it comes to your own writing are you a plotter or a pantster?

After throwing away literally hundreds of pages over the years, we’re now solidly in the plotter camp. We use a large corkboard and index cards, and spend a lot of time plotting out the story before writing it. This is especially important because we write together. We have to be in synch about what the story is about, where it’s heading, and how it ends. This allows us to divide and conquer. And, we never get writer’s block. We each grab a card and that’s our homework assignment.

Tagline: Great minds don’t always think alike.

Book Description:

Seven of our country’s most gifted teens will become Nobels, hosts for the implantation of brilliant Mentor minds, in an effort to accelerate human progress.

But as the line between what’s possible and what’s right draws ever blurrier, the teens discover everything has a cost.

Scientists have created an evolved form of living known as Merged Consciousness, and sixteen-year-old Lake finds herself unable to merge with her Mentor.

Lake, the Nobel for Chemistry and Orfyn, the Nobel for Art, are two from among the inaugural class of Nobels, and with the best intent and motivation. But when Stryker, the Nobel for Peace, makes them question the motivation of the scientists behind the program, their world begins to unravel.

As the Nobels work to uncover the dark secrets of the program’s origins, everyone's a suspect and no one can be trusted, not even the other Nobels. 

As the Mentors begin to take over the bodies and minds of the Nobels, Lake and Orfyn must find a way to regain control before they lose all semblance or memory of their former selves.


Excerpt:
Mr. Blue points to the document. “Sign this and change your life. Or don’t. It’s up to you.”
“What happens if I say no?”
“The Darwin Corporation will remain your legal guardian, but you’ll lose the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become one of humanity’s greatest hopes.”
So basically, he’s saying I’m stuck here either way. “Will I always be locked up?”
“That depends on your choices.”     
I wait for him to crack a smile. He doesn’t.
I break eye contact and flip to the last page. There’s one short paragraph stating that I’ve read the forty-one-page document (which I haven’t), I understand the risks (which I don’t), and I buy into the idea that two minds are better than one (or something like that). At the bottom, there’s a line with my name printed below it.
“Is it dangerous?” I ask, really wishing my voice hadn’t cracked.
Mr. Blue hesitates, and for a moment he almost appears human. “Every medical procedure has its risks, but the end result could change the world. And you’ll be one of the few who have the ability to change it.”
What if I could become the next Michelangelo? I’ve been given the chance to create art that makes a difference. For now, and even hundreds of years to come. “What else can you tell me about Bat?”
“He’s very successful,” Mr. Blue says, taking a pen from his suit pocket. “And he’s dying.”
“Can you give me a little more than that?”
“He specifically chose you.”
Nobody has ever chosen me.


I grab Mr. Blue’s pen and sign the document using the name I’m adopting. If I’m going to share my brain with someone and become a ground-breaking artist, I’m doing it as Orfyn.

About the Authors:

When they aren’t dodging moose, their story ideas appear during their walks with their dog, who far prefers chasing balls to plotting novels.

Interview Awakening the Trinity by Brittany Elise #YASupernatural



Are you currently binge watching anything on Netflix, Hulu (or elsewhere)? What keeps you glued to the screen?
I just finished watching the third season of Stranger Things, but I’m not currently watching anything. I don’t watch a lot of TV to be honest. However, one of my absolute favorite (and entirely underrated) shows that I watch pretty much every October is: Penny Dreadful. It only ran for three seasons, much to my dismay, but Eva Green plays a phenomenal female lead and the storyline is hauntingly delicious. It takes place in Victorian London, and uses classic literary characters like Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and Dracula. It’s like a gothic fairytale with dark poetry–what’s not to love?
Do you prefer movies or TV series?
This is a good question. I think it depends on my mood and the time of year. If it’s freezing cold and dark and there isn’t much to do outside, I like to find a good TV series to get into, and kind of lose myself in the storyline.
When it comes to reading do you prefer standalones or series?
Also kind of depends on my mood. I love series novels because if the storyline is amazing, I tend to not want it to end. My favorite trilogy right now is the Winternight trilogy by Katherine Arden. I’m still kind of crossing my fingers that those get made into a movie or a show because they are such incredible books full of historical fantasy and Russian legend. She writes such beautiful imagery–that in my opinion–separates her from all the rest. She’s a true literary queen.
Do you prefer to start new book series when the first book is released or do you want for a several books in the series to be released so you can binge read?
Hmm, if I get lucky enough to stumble on a book series early on, I like to read them as the books are released. I kind of like the torture of ‘waiting’ because as soon as it’s over I know I’m going to have this strange void of emotion like–“what am I supposed to do with my life now?” Ha-ha.
What are some of your hobbies, interests or guilty pleasures?
I love being outside. I love hiking and kayaking–or really any activity I can use as an excuse just to be outside enjoying nature. I adore campfires and stargazing. I like learning oddball or off-the-wall things, too, like tinkering with mechanical things and learning how things operate. I take almost every experience that I can and store it in a little mental file just in case it happens to come in handy for a future story. I love learning, so if someone is going to take the time to share with me something they are passionate about, you can bet they’ll have my full attention. Unless it’s math… ::cringes:: Numbers and I do not get along.
What's your guilty “nerd” pleasure?
Well, I am definitely a nerd of sorts. I’m into the DC and Marvel universe, and thanks to my sister-in-law, some Japanese anime. I’ve dressed up for renaissance festivals and events, but that’s pretty much where I draw the line.   
Have you ever peeked at the ending of a book?
            Never! That’s like the ultimate sin of reading for me.
When it comes to your own writing are you a plotter or a pantster?
I use a sort of skewed version of a skeleton outline. I like to know how I’m starting a story, where I want the story to peak, and how I want it to end. Everything in between is an adventure, and might change as I go along. I have tried mapping things out in advance–chapter by chapter, but that method just does not work well for me.
