INTERVIEW: UNCOVERING OFFICER SMITH with Sheena Hutchinson


I had the pleasure of interviewing Sheena Hutchinson, author of indie bestsellers, The Seraphina Series, Discovering April, and her newest Uncovering Officer Smith. Read my chat with her down below:

1. Tell us what your new book is about?
Which one? Haha. It seems like I’m always writing more than one. The next book to be re-released would be my paranormal series (book one) Seraphina’s Awakening. It’s about a young woman who always felt as though there was more to her life. After a freak accident she begins to find out that maybe she was right.

2. Your books consist of verbs like Discovering from ‘Discovering April’, Uncovering from ‘Officer Smith’. Was there initially a pattern using those terms, or did they come in later after the books were done?
Actually this was never supposed to be a series. Discovering April was named because April pretty much had to re-discover herself. When the idea hit me, Uncovering Officer Smith was just a short story on my laptop (the first bar scene.) The idea hit me to connect this story with the mysterious John Smith from Discovering April and it all fell into place. It took me a while to come up with the title because I wanted something that flowed with Discovering. Fun Fact: The last book in the series will be called Recovering Regan. So, I’m keeping the pattern going.

3. What’s your writing process like?
I don’t know if I have a process per say. I write when I’m inspired. It comes to me in visual scenes or dreams and I rush to get them all on paper while I can still describe them. There’s a draw back because I can’t force it. If I’m not inspired I will just sit there staring at a blank document.

4. Where does your inspiration come from? 
Like I said before, Dreams. I have crazy dreams in that weird state right before you wake up. I see things so vividly that’s what inspired Seraphina series and her mysterious dreams.

5. What made you decide to take the self-published/indie book route than traditional?
I’m very impatient. I don’t think I would ever be able to wait for a traditional publishing contract. And, I’m so bad at keeping secrets. I wouldn’t be able to wait years before my works were in the hands of readers. Then there’s the fact that I’m a slight control freak. I want to choose my own cover and I want total control.

6. What’s your most and least favorite thing about being an author? 
My most favorite thing is connecting with readers. There is nothing like the feeling of hearing that someone loved your book or connected with your book. Because it’s drawn from internal feelings of mine sometimes, it just makes my heart happy. My least favorite would have to be writers block and when you’re stuck halfway through a story trying to get from Point A to Point C when B hasn’t been figured out yet.

7. You’re always on social media, connecting with fans online. How important is it for you to connect in that way?
I think it should be very important to authors. How else will you get your name out there nowadays? Plus, I like to be accessible. If people feel personally connected with you, it can only help.

8. What do you do to fight writer’s block?
Cry, eat some double chocolate ice cream, and binge watch Netflix — No, I’m only partially kidding. I can’t write when I’m not inspired. So, sometimes I’ll read through the manuscript again to find my bearings or other times I have to walk away. Read a book, take a walk, and sometimes when I come back it flows or I’ll get inspiration for another story (hence why I have so many half started)

9. If you could go back 5 years, what would you tell your younger self?
Pay attention in English! It would have saved me so much money on editing.

10. What advice would you give to aspiring writers and authors?
Don’t stop reading and writing. To become better at something you must practice. To become an expert study the works of your favorite books, study their pacing, study their words, and sentence structure. Always write. Even if it’s the dumbest thing, even if no one will ever read it. My first book came from a journal I kept. Some of my best lines are from my very own diary.

Thank you so much to Sheena for offering to do an interview with me! My first official interview! :)

This week, I'm reading Passenger by Alexandra Bracken:

They had the rarest, most bewildering power in the world, and how did her family choose to use this incredible gift? To line their pockets with cash and go sightseeing.

I really like this book so far, but I hate sophia!! She's so ignorant, indulgent, and arrogant. She thinks that just because she has money and power that she can treat and think of people anyway she wants. And that's wrong!! Etta better get her together soon.

SHELF CONTROL #2: FINDING PURGATORY by Kristina M. Sanchez

24861675

Hosted by Bookshelf FantasiesShelf Control is all about the books we want to read — and already own! Consider this a variation of a Wishing & Waiting post… but looking at books already available, and in most cases, sitting right there on our shelves and e-readers.

 This week, the second SC post is on Finding Purgatory by Kristina M. Sanchez. 

Bang!

In one short moment, Ani Novak’s life is turned upside down. Her beautiful family is destroyed and she is left completely alone. With an unnamed desire, she seeks out the little sister she had walked away from when she was nineteen.

Tori Kane is barely eighteen, jaded, and reluctantly in need of her sister’s help. While Ani is in the position to financially support her sister, the one thing Tori really needs money can’t buy and Ani no longer knows how to give—trust.


Neither of them expected paradise, but they want more than the hell their lives have become. There has to be a middle ground between heaven and hell where they can just be. 

How I got it:
I bought it!

When I got it:
I don't remember when I got it, actually.


Why I want to read it:
Kristina is actually a really amazing fanfic writer (you might know her as LyricalKris), so I bought her original book to support her. But I haven't gotten around to reading any of her original books yet. I know, I'm an awful fan, but I think I'm more hesitant because she's such a good fanfic writer, that it won't translate well in originals. I've seen that happen before; that when fanfic writers write mostly good content on FFN but when it comes to ofics, it doesn't end up well for them. But most of the reviews on Kris' books have been positive, so that makes me feel better lol. She's so talented and realistic, I know I shouldn't have any reason why she shouldn't be able to translate well with originals. But we'll see. Or it may be just me and I'm just making myself crazy!

Because I Love You
Tori Rigby
Published by: Blaze Publishing
Publication date: May 17th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Eight weeks after sixteen-year-old Andie Hamilton gives her virginity to her best friend, “the stick” says she’s pregnant.
Her friends treat her like she’s carrying the plague, her classmates torture and ridicule her, and the boy she thought loved her doesn’t even care. Afraid to experience the next seven months alone, she turns to her ex-boyfriend, Neil Donaghue, a dark-haired, blue-eyed player. With him, she finds comfort and the support she desperately needs to make the hardest decision of her life: whether or not to keep the baby.
Then a tragic accident leads Andie to discover Neil’s keeping a secret that could dramatically alter their lives, and she’s forced to make a choice. But after hearing her son’s heartbeat for the first time, she doesn’t know how she’ll ever be able to let go.
BILY Teaser April 19
SNEAK PEEK:
No matter how much I needed him, I couldn’t let Neil throw his future away for me. He would do anything to keep me protected, comforted; I knew that like I knew the sky was blue. But I had to show him the same selfless love, or I’d forever regret holding him back. Which meant one thing: I was on my own.
My stomach turned to stone. But what about Ethan? Even if I did manage to drop out of high school and find a job that paid a decent wage, I couldn’t provide for a baby by myself. I couldn’t raise a baby in poverty—I wouldn’t. My son deserved so much more. But how the hell was I supposed to let him go?

Becca
Meggie and I almost started crying during the pre-game shot, toast. Her parents decided to pull her out of summer classes. This is her last weekend before she has to return home. I don’t know what I’m going to do without her. She almost said the exact same thing during her toast, but we quickly chased it down with some humor. I mean, after all, we’ll be apart for barely two months.
When you spend every single day together, two months feels like an eternity. Tonight is going to be a good night. Just my best friend and me – we promised each other a girl’s night. For the first time in my life, I was totally lying.
There are a ton of bars on The Ave. We could have gone to any number of them, and probably should have… but truthfully, I wanted him to see me. Meggie and I saunter up to the bouncer on the patio stairs in our heels and he automatically waves us in. After sharing a glance, we giggle before walking into the flap of the tented patio. The white material billows up into two points above the patio and the light filters through, casting an eerie ambiance. My eyes scan the crowd.
Meggie catches my eye. “I don’t see him, Bee.”
I look away. “I don’t know who you’re talking about.”
She smiles. “You know exactly who I am talk about.” She guides me across the patio to the outside bar, conveniently squeezing in between a pair of guys, and places our drink order.
“Oh, excuse me, boys.” Meggie is the queen of striking up conversation. The bartender places the drinks on the bar top and I happen to notice one of the guys reaching for his wallet.
“Let me get those for you, doll,” he offers.
“Oh, I couldn’t possibly…” Meggie starts and I roll my eyes. She definitely could possibly, and he is totally being played.
They exchange a few words before she passes me one of the drinks. She waves to them as we walk away arm in arm.  
“I don’t know how you do it.” I giggle in her ear.
“Men are suckers.” She wiggles her fingers at a bouncer in the doorway to the back entrance of the club and we slip inside. “It’s almost like they deserve it. You see, Becca, you can let them play you—Or you can play them first.”
“That’s no way to be, Meggie.”
“That’s the only way to be.” She lifts her drink to her lips and swallows a gulp.
My head nods before glancing around, just one more time. John is stationed in his usual spot against the far wall, overlooking the dance floor. His stern glare surveys the area as groups of girls gravitate to the dance floor in front of him. He has a vibe about him that begs to be enjoyed. Tonight, I want to give in. I crave spontaneity and adventure the way a college girl should. But most of all, I want to be that way with him.

NEW FEATURE: SHELF CONTROL #1: CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE by Cassandra Clare

 

So I'm starting a new weekly feature on my blog, called Shelf Control, hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies!

 Shelf Control is all about the books we want to read — and already own! Consider this a variation of a Wishing & Waiting post… but looking at books already available, and in most cases, sitting right there on our shelves and e-readers.
 This week, the first SC post is on City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare.

 In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary's own brother.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris - but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee - even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned...

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!



How I got it:
I bought it!

When I got it:
2012, a year after my high school graduation. (Wow, that makes me sound so old!)

Why I want to read it:
 Because it was the last book in a series I really liked. It's been sitting on my bookshelf for so long, but I just haven't gotten to reading it yet. But I will. One day. Hopefully.

What are your books on your Shelf Control list? Leave comments below.

Book Review Tour: HOW TO BE COOL by Annie Carr



How to Be Cool
by Annie Carr
Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction
Release Date: March 1st 2016
Cascade Press

Summary from Goodreads:

Ethan will never be as cool as his twin brother Alex. Alex is a star football player and president of the senior class, while Ethan was born with cerebral palsy and needs crutches to walk. 

Laura will never be as cool as her perfect older sister Nikki. Nikki is everything Laura isn't—confident and gorgeous… until one night when Nikki is brutally raped and hospitalized, and Laura finds comfort in her new friend Ethan. 

Together, Ethan and Laura realize maybe you don't need to be cool to be happy. Or to fall in love. 

And then a revelation about the attack shatters everything… 

Excerpt

I see her out of the corner of my eye. Elsie Kahn. Elsie of Mr. Watson’s chemistry class fame, the girl who (accidentally?) set her homework on fire with the flame from her Bunsen burner. She got about as red as I’d ever seen a person get as Mr. Watson chewed her out in front of the whole class.

It seems like Elsie isn’t having a better day today. She’s running for the last of the school buses, but the driver doesn’t see her, and it’s obvious this is going to be a major fail. Her hair is whipping behind her head and her cheeks are all pink with exertion. She’s screaming, “Wait! Wait!”

It probably needs to be said about Elsie: she isn’t pretty. I’m not saying that in a mean way like my brother would, just in a factual way. She’s not. Her body is pretty nice, or at least it was the day of the chemistry fire, when she was wearing a maroon skirt that fell just above her knees and a clingy black shirt. And she’s got nice hair too—strawberry blond and silky. But it’s obvious even from where I’m standing that Elsie had been born with a cleft lip, and it didn’t get repaired right. You can see where the pieces of her upper lip don’t quite come together evenly.

So Elsie isn’t pretty. Big deal. The fact is, she’s something even better than pretty.

She’s attainable.

Owen comes out of the school at that moment, and I can see the pit stains on his shirt under his open jacket. He apparently worked up quite the sweat running to five different classrooms. But the good news is, he’s holding his Spanish book triumphantly above his head. “It was in the bathroom!” he declares.

The bathroom? Are you kidding me? And now this book is going to be in my car? Lucky for him, I’ve got other things on my mind.

“Hey…” I nudge Owen. “Elsie missed her bus. Maybe we should offer her a ride home.”

Owen looks up in Elsie’s direction. He makes a face like he’s not thrilled about the idea, but then shrugs and sprints for the car. “I guess so. But she has to sit in the back.” Did I mention Owen has already claimed eternal shotgun?

I look over at Elsie, and all of a sudden, I’m really nervous. If Elsie says yes, she will be the first girl to ride in my car, with the exception of my mom. I try not to drive myself crazy with the possibilities. I run my tongue over my teeth, because I don’t want there to be any spinach stuck in them (or whatever that green stuff was at lunch). Then I tighten my grip on the handles of my forearm crutches, and start limping awkwardly in Elsie’s direction.

Elsie’s got her phone in her hand and she looks like she’s seconds away from bursting into tears. “Elsie?” I say. And of course, my voice cracks, like I’m freaking thirteen years old. I clear my throat, hoping she didn’t notice.

Elsie looks up in surprise. “Yes?”

“Uh…” I can feel the heat in my face—I’m sure Elsie can see it too. I focus on getting the words out and not on how silky Elsie’s hair looks. “I’ve got a car, so, um, if you need a ride or something…”

Elsie is staring at me, which if you ask me, is kind of bad manners. First she stares at my face, but I’m okay with that. There’s nothing wrong with my face. All right, I’m not, like, Mr. Handsome or anything like my brother, but I’m not a guy who walked into a wall either.

Then her eyes drop and she’s looking down at my crutches and my legs. That part I’m not thrilled about. I’ve got braces going up to the knee on the right and up to the hip on the left. Even with the braces, my left leg always seems to rotate inward so that my left foot points about forty-five degrees toward the right one. Elsie keeps on staring for what feels like five hours, but if I’m being honest, it’s probably more like fifteen seconds. Not that it makes much difference. It’s long enough, anyway.

Elsie glances over at a group of girls standing nearby, watching us curiously. “No, thanks,” Elsie says, then she turns back to her phone.

Rejected. Ouch.

Elsie turns away from me, letting me know that there’s zero point in trying to persuade her. Yeah, as if I would. If Elsie doesn’t want to be in a car with me, then I’m not going to beg. Let her find her own goddamn ride home at this hour. Good luck with that, Elsie.

I make my way over to my car, where Owen is waiting. He’s leaning against the hood, probably making a huge dent in it. “So is she coming?”

I dig my keys out of my pocket and shrug like I couldn’t care less. “She found another ride,” I say.


My Review

This book was so much fun to read! I liked how both Ethan and Laura had their insecurities and self-doubts about themselves. Ethan has cerebral palsy and forced to use crutches to walk, so he's always used to being the odd man out. Plus, his older brother Alex is more popular than him, but he doesn't hate him. Ethan knows that people gravitate towards his brother, but he doesn't feel devious hatred for him. He gets on his nerves a lot, but he knows that in the world they live in, Alex is going to get most of the hype than him. And he's okay with that. 

Same with Laura and her sister Nikki. Laura is the curvy, younger sister to the beautiful, tall and gorgeous Nicole Kramer. Now, she's the jealous one. She's the one who always resented her sister for being most beautiful and exotic and who gets all of the guys' attention. But when Nikki was raped, Laura felt like she had to put her feelings on hold to see her sister through her struggles. It kind of reminded me of how I felt about my own sister. She's this tall, dark, gorgeous creature who gets all the attention, and I'm me. I'm more of the quiet, reserved person who just lets anyone pass her by. So me and Laura both had that in common. 

The thing that kept hanging over all of the characters' heads in the story was who attacked Nikki? Who hurt her enough to almost kill her and send her to the hospital? Who did it? When Ethan suspected that it could have been Alex, his inner conflicts on what exactly to tell to Laura really came through in the book. I could feel his inner turmoil; he didn't want to keep lying to her, but he didin't want to lose what he just had when he was so happy. He finally had someone who will accept him fully, and he didn't want to lose that. But when Laura found out anyway, it was really sad watching their relationship crumble and end. 

Though I understand why they broke up. They had to; Ethan kept lying to her even though he had a feeling Alex had something to do with Nikki's rape. But it sucked because they were so happy and in love, and it worked for them. Two misfits in love! However, keeping important information from your girlfriend about her sister to protect your brother is not cool. That's not how to be cool. (See what I did there?) 

Nevertheless, I hoped that in the end that everything would work out and they'd get back together, but honestly, I don't think it would have worked out. There's just too much history between them enough to start over. Their last dance at prom was lovely though. It showed that they could set aside their differences and have this one last night together. 

In conclusion, this was a really good novel by Annie Carr. I hope to read more of her books soon. 

Rating: 4/5 stars

GUEST POST: Mitchell Charles Talks Middle Grade Novel 'The Kingdom of Oceana'


Mitchell Charles has a love for the ocean, beaches, scubadiving and all things of the sea. Hence why his inspiration for his latest book, The Kingdom of Oceana, came along so easily. He loves to explore the hidden depths of the sea, and what came of them before they were transformed to what they are today. Oceana is a creative entity of another ancient world of hero Prince Ailani and his personal and public struggles in a kingdom.

Mitchell talks about his new novel, which is on sale now, in a guest post below.


The question I’m most often asked by my readers is, “what inspired you to create the rich fantasy world of The Kingdom of Oceana?” I spend a lot of time in Hawaii and the natural beauty of the islands, the aloha spirit of the people, and my adventures exploring the undersea tropical reefs with SCUBA gear are powerful creative catalysts. But an exotic setting is not enough to anchor a compelling young-adult book series. A captivating novel is about conflict.

As I probed the psyche of my main character, Prince Ailani, I knew I had to send him on an epic hero’s journey, an arduous personal transformation from an unsure 16 year-old prince into a young man worthy of ruling a sprawling Polynesian empire. I had to put treacherous obstacles in his path – a 400’ fall from the top of a waterfall, a fire walk over burning embers, surfing crushing 40’ waves in knee-deep water, an encounter with a man-eating great white shark, and the chaos resulting when a 1,000 year-old curse is unleashed.

While overcoming these obstacles was critical to our hero’s journey, they paled in comparison with the personal struggles Prince Ailani faced within his own family – a bitter rivalry with his older brother Nahoa; the unreturned love from his mercurial mother, Queen Ua; and feeling he’s never quite good enough to his father, the mighty King Haga.

Ultimately, Prince Ailani learns that the world’s external forces are never as challenging as the ones faced at home. The real hero’s journey is not about the feats of bravery he encounters sailing around Oceana, but rather in finding the inner strength to confront his traumatic family dynamics. What is the case for Prince Aliani also holds true for many of us. To achieve greatness in the world, we must first heal the strife within our own family.

Top Ten Tuesday #6: Childhood Characters to Revisit as an Adult


Hosted by Jamie, Jana and Lauren of BrokeandBookish.com, Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly book meme that presents top ten lists on Tuesdays that promotes favorite bookish themes. 

This week's theme: Ten Childhood Characters You'd Love To Revisit As Adults (i.e. a novella or something to see what they grew up to be) -- you could always just pick YA characters you've read recently you wouldn't mind revisiting in 10 years or so. Or you could pick 10 characters and guess what you think they'd be doing in 10 years or 20 years. OR you could go the other way and wish for coming of age stories for adult characters you love. 


1. The girls from Baby-Sitters Club

These books (and the 'Little Sister' spinoffs) were all I read as a kid, and I'd love to see what Kristy, Claudia, Mary-Anne, Stacey, Jessi and Mallory are up to as adults. I'm surprised I still remember all their names!! :)


2. Karen from Baby-Sitters Little Sister

Like I said before, these books were all I read growing up. I'd love to see what Karen (Kristy's little sister) would be up to, still causing mischief around the house, I'm sure. 


3. Nancy Drew

I don't really remember all of the books, but my niece and I loved reading these books as a kid. And then when the movie starring Emma Roberts (pictured above) came out, I was so excited. I used to be such a stan for Emma back then! 


4. The Boxcar Children

I didn't read a whole lot of these, but from what I remember, I liked them a lot. 


5. Harry, Ron and Hermoine from Harry Potter Series

I don't even have to say how much I loved these books!! I still do! Mind you, I didn't read these until high school, but it still managed to make a huge part of my school life. Thanks to my best friend Kim for introducing me to one of the best series to ever encounter my reading life. 


6. Madeline

This books was so adorable, and I had a lot of fun reading the book, and the movie was so cute, as well. I'd love to be able to go back in time and see what Madeline was up to as an adult. 


7. Wilbur and Charlotte from Charlotte's Web

I'd love to see how Wilbur and Fern are as adults, and Charlotte's three little baby spiders. 


8. The Bernstein Bears

I'd love to see how the baby bears are doing as adults, plus Mama and Papa Bear.


9. Nick Allen from Frindle

I'd love to see what Nick and his friends have created as adults, especially since Nick's "frindle" word caused so much controversy in the story! 


10. Winnie the Pooh

I don't think Pooh ever ages, so it wouldn't be hard to go back and see what he'd be up to, with Piglet, Eeyore, Owl, Rabbit, Tigger, and more in the 100 Acre Wood!! 

What are some of your childhood characters that you want to see as adults? Leave comments below.
