Street Teams, New Website, T-Shirts, and Signing Announcements!

Happy Saturday, lovelies!

I have a few quick announcements for you. :)

1. I've finally launched a website for my erotic romance. I'll be posting more mature themed items and discussions there. Obviously, this is NSFW and shouldn't be viewed by my younger readers. You can find it at: http://aydenmorgen.com.

2. I've also launched a street team! Ayden's Fire Starters get behind-the-scenes access to all the things going on in my writing world... cover art, teasers, wips, ARCS, and all the fun stuff. If you'd like to participate, you can join at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/aydensfirestarters

3. Team Apocalypse t-shirts are still available until the 19th. They're $15 and proceeds go to the Defenders of Wildlife. There are only 18 left, so if you plan to get one, you might want to reserve it now. Once those 18 are gone, the campaign will be shut down and no more orders will be accepted. You won't be charged until the end of the campaign on June 19th. You can get them at: http://teespring.com/ragnarok.




4. This summer, I'll be in Rogers, Arkansas and Houston, Texas for the Angels and Sinners Author Tour! There will be over 40 authors at the signing in Rogers, and over 60 of us in Houston. Discount tickets to both events are available through the end of the day today. Tomorrow, they go back to regular price. You can get them at: http://indieauthorevent.com.

Only one thing is so powerful, so dangerous that Heaven and Hell must work together to find it: the Shard of Gabriel.

With a mysterious Black Cloud of Death hot on the shard’s trail, a desperate Heaven enlists the help of Bart, a demon who knows more about the shard than almost anyone. Six years ago, he had it in his hands. If only he’d used it before his coup to overthrow the devil failed. Now, he’s been sprung from his eternal punishment to help Samantha, an angel in training, recover the shard before the Black Cloud of Death finds it.

If Bartholomew wants to succeed, he’ll have to fight the temptation to betray Samantha and the allure of the shard. After an existence full of evil, the only way Bart can get right with Hell is to be good.



About the Author:

Growing up, Ryan Hill used to spend his time reading and writing instead of doing homework. This resulted in an obsession with becoming a writer, but also a gross incompetence in the fields of science and mathematics. A graduate of North Carolina State University, Ryan has been a film critic for over five years. He lives in Raleigh, NC, with his dog/shadow Maggie. Ryan also feels strange about referring to himself in the third person.

Happy Birthday, Asssistant Aloshua!

Today is a very special day.

My sweet little minion assistant, Aloshua (or Losh) is turning nine!

Losh is pretty much the best assistant an author could ask for. He's taken FADE into the operating room with him so all his nurses and doctors could see it. He's assisted me at book signings. He's helped pick our charities of choice and delivers donations to them. He brings me donuts and caffeine. He introduces me to VIPs like Mickey Mouse and Batman and Ronald McDonald. And he's pretty much the cutest assistant ever.

So happy birthday, Losh! You're the greatest assistant ever.

Book Signing Assistant
Helping with donations

Reading FADE before surgery
Bringing me donuts

Chilling with Mickey
And Batman
And Ronald
And the Rollin' Razorbacks


 I've won the assistant lottery with this one. :)

Unveiling FLAME - The Ragnarok Prophesies: Book Three

Hello lovelies,

Several of you have asked recently if I plan to finish the Ragnarok Prophesies series, so I wanted to take a minute to reassure you that Ari and Dace's story will be finished. I'm in the process of writing the third book, FLAME, now.

Which is the other reason we're here today. :) To celebrate the end of the Ragnarok Prophesies review tour (and to thank all of you who participated), I'm unveiling the (unofficial) blurb and prologue to FLAME!

I'm not going to say anything about it but this: If you haven't finished FALL, you'll want to skip the rest of this post for now.

FLAME
The Ragnarök Prophesies: Book Three

Where do you turn when betrayal threatens to destroy everything you hold dear?

Buka and Lykaois have been murdered by one of their own, and Mandy Chapman is missing. Betrayal has sent Arionna's world up in flames, and it's far from over. As her companions continue their desperate search for an ally, Ari finds herself fighting for control when Freki's cage shatters. She must face the fierce wolf inside, and figure out who to trust as the world around her spirals out of control. But at every turn, she learns that those she's put her faith in aren't who they seem.

When Skoll and Hati finally reveal themselves, Ari and Dace learn just how close to Ragnarok they really stand. The world balances on the edge of a blade, and one wrong move will destroy it all.

With few allies and little choice, Ari makes a desperate deal with the twin wolves to save her friends and stave off the apocalypse. Her decision changes everything for her and Dace in ways she never could have expected. When the dust settles, will Dace be able to forgive her?



Read the prologue here.

And don't forget to pop back over here afterward to tell me what you think. Or you can use the #TeamApocalypse hashtag on Twitter.

Revising, Rewriting, and the Importance of Critique Partners


Most people never get from, "I've always wanted to write a book." to "I've written a book, so now what do I do?" If you've made the leap, congratulations! You've officially taken the one step many aspiring authors never do: You've finished writing an entire novel.

That's a big deal.

Stop for a moment and appreciate the incredible thing you've just done.

Finished appreciating?

Good.

Now the real work begins.

Contrary to popular belief, writing involves more than just finishing a manuscript, especially if you plan to do anything with it. If this doesn't apply to you, your job here is done and you may now move on to finishing your next novel.

But if you are one of those aspiring authors... the hard part is just beginning for you. Now that you've finished that manuscript, it's time to tear it apart and put it back together. Revising and rewriting is an exhaustive, multi-faceted process. It's also a necessary one.

I've never met anyone who wrote a perfect novel in one draft. Heck, I don't think I know anyone who has done it in two drafts. Most of us spend weeks and months revising and rewriting our manuscripts, and then we do it again.

During this process, you're looking at everything from voice to characterization to pace to style to information flow to accuracy of facts and everything in between. Does it flow? Does it make sense? Is it engaging? Are the little details correct? Is anything missing? Is there too much superfluous information? Where are the plot holes?

Revising and rewriting isn't an optional process for an aspiring author. It is vital. Let me repeat that: Revising and rewriting is not optional. It is vital.

Why should a publisher invest in your story if you aren't willing to do so? An editor? A reader? They have plenty of other options to choose from. Unless yours stands out, it will get lost in the slush pile, or in the thousands upon thousands of choices currently available to readers.

No one wants that!

You want your story to have the best chance possible, and that requires ungodly amounts of work.

The revision process is your chance to make your novel shine.

Learn the rules and then use them. Learn what's been done to death in your genre, and then delete it in your manuscript. Figure out what readers are looking for, and give it to them. No matter how much you tell yourself these things don't matter, you're wrong. Accept that now and you'll save yourself a ton of frustration later on down the road.

So where do you start?

Hand your manuscript over to people you trust and ask them to give you an honest opinion. What do they love? What do they hate? What stands out to them as needing work? What would they change? Keep? Incinerate with dragon flame?

Do yourself a favor now and refuse to believe anyone who tells you, at this stage, that the novel is the best thing they ever read. They're probably wrong. And don't hand your Spy Thriller over to grandma who has never read a Spy Thriller in her life and expect her to give you the best advice.

Rely on fellow writers, on editors, on English teachers, on readers... you know more of these people than you think you do! And if you don't, now is the time to meet them. These are the people who will tell you what you need to hear, even if it's not what you want to hear. Learn to appreciate these kindred spirits now because you need constructive criticism, not smoke blown up your arse. These people will be far gentler than will many agents, editors, publishers, and readers.

Equally as important: learn when to heed the advice of these people, and when to stick to your guns. You know this story better than anyone, and not everything your critique partners tell you is going to help. Knowing when to revise and when to leave it alone is going to save you a lot of grief later. If you're unsure, ask for another opinion. And then another. (And be prepared to return the favor with their work. Quid pro quo is the key here.)

Once you have this information, go through your manuscript again. Look at the things your partners pointed out. Can you make these elements stronger? Is it in the best interest of the story to change these things? If the answer is yes, do so. If it isn't, move on.

Make sure the details you include are accurate. You have creative license, but that will only take you so far. People who read spy thrillers tend to know a little about the world of espionage, just as people who work in hospitals know a little something about working in a hospital. Don't insult these readers by making everything up as you go along. Make sure the facts fit, or that you have a damn good (and valid!) reason for changing them when they don't.

On a similar note... make sure the writing fits the time period. If your novel is set in Ancient Greece, don't insult readers by including slang or phrases popular today. They will call you out for it.

Focus on characterization. If readers don't connect with your characters, chances are they aren't going to read your work. Make your characters raw. Make them crazy. Make them intense... Whatever floats your boat. Just make them realistic! That doesn't mean your character has to fit into our world, but they do have to fit the world you've created for them. If John has lived in a dungeon his entire life, readers aren't going to believe he knows quantum mechanics (or proper dinner etiquette) unless you give a darn good reason for why he does.

Spend time tweaking the plot. If it's been done a thousand times, create a new angle. Search out and destroy plot holes. Don't leave questions unanswered without good reason. Ensure the plot moves from point A to B to C logically. If you've gone from A to Z, there's probably something important you need to revisit. Do so now, or others will call you out on it. Editors. Agents. Readers. It's a lot easier (and less upsetting) to address these issues now than it will be when you're book is already on shelves!

From there... find someone in your life who has an excellent grasp of the mechanics of writing and hand your manuscript over to them. Ask them to help weed out those grammatical or mechanical mistakes. Don't beat yourself up if there are a lot of them. Learn how to fix them, and then do so.

And remember those rules! You're going to need them as you move forward, so your life will be a lot easier if you learn to identify and understand the rules and where you need work. The last thing you want to do is go through a manuscript making suggested changes you don't understand.

Take notes. Lots of notes! Buy grammar books and read them. Search out grammar tips. Follow people like Grammar Girl on social media. Ask questions. Lots of questions! And if you still don't understand, ask again. Take a writing course. Take an English course.

Strengthening your grasp of grammar isn't a take it or leave it suggestion. This is crucial. Agents and publishers will reject your manuscript in droves if you send them something that appears to have been written by a third grader. Even if you self-publish, readers will pass on your story if it's not up to snuff. You don't want something you've worked this hard on to fail simply because you refused to learn the difference between your/you're or past and present tense.

Search out words and phrases you overuse, and delete them. Invest in a thesaurus for this. It will be an invaluable resource to you.

And then search out and delete passive phrases. This includes phrases like "it was", "she was", "he was", "going to be", "could have", "were", "was".

Do the same with the five thousand times you used italics for emphasis. Less is more!

When you're finished with all of this... read through the manuscript again. Make any additional changes you feel needs to be made. And then send it on to your pre-readers or beta team. Like your critique partners, make sure these people are in the know... They should be folks who read (and/or write) that genre.

Forge relationships with these people just like you do your critique partners because they are going to be some of your greatest allies as you move forward. When an agent requests your manuscript and wants it STAT, these are the people who are going to stay up half the night reading it again just to ease your mind before you send it over. When you find great beta readers... keep them! Make sure they know how important they are to you. Bake them cookies. Buy them wine. Name your firstborn after them. Whatever it takes to keep these brilliant people reading for you. Trust me, they are that invaluable.

When they send the story back to you with their notes, read through your manuscript again, and then make appropriate changes. Get used to making these changes (and taking this criticism) now, because you will be revising and rewriting and editing again when you find an agent (if you opt to seek representation), and again when you find a publisher.

Most importantly: Don't bog yourself down in this process to the point where you're unable to move forward. Do your absolute best, but don't beat yourself up if you accidentally overlook a misplaced comma or two. Agents and editors aren't going to reject you just because you overlooked a single adjective.

Author Interview: @SharonBayliss and Destruction #decemberpeople

Hi lovelies!

Today we have the amazing Sharon Bayliss with us to answer questions about herself, writing, and her new release, Destruction, the exciting first book in the December People series (dark fantasy)!

David Vandergraff wants to be a good man. He goes to church every Sunday, keeps his lawn trim and green, and loves his wife and kids more than anything. Unfortunately, being a dark wizard isn't a choice.

Eleven years ago, David's secret second family went missing. When his two lost children are finally found, he learns they suffered years of unthinkable abuse. Ready to make things right, David brings the kids home even though it could mean losing the wife he can’t imagine living without.

Keeping his life together becomes harder when the new children claim to be dark wizards. David believes they use this fantasy to cope with their trauma. Until, David's wife admits a secret of her own—she is a dark wizard too, as is David, and all of their children.
Now, David must parent two hurting children from a dark world he doesn’t understand and keep his family from falling apart. All while dealing with the realization that everyone he loves, including himself, may be evil.

  1. Please tell us about yourself in fifty words or less.
I'm a social worker, an author, a wife, and a mom. I'm a winter witch, tending towards spring, which means I'm dark and serious, but free-spirited and fun-loving at the same time. I've lived in Austin, Texas all my life, and I love drinking margaritas on patios and wearing flip-flops.


  1. What can readers expect from Destruction?

It's a dark wizard family drama. You can expect to see magic interwoven with real-world problems.

  1. What is the most nerve wracking part of a new release for you?

That's actually a hard question. There seems to be just a general ambient anxiety around a new release. Obviously I fear failure—bad reviews, poor sales, etc., but really it's just an unspecified freak-out.

  1. What's been the single most empowering piece of advice you've gotten when it comes to writing?

JFW. It means "just f---ing write." I actually stole it from my husband's running group, Rogue Running. Their slogan is JFR (run), but I liked the idea. Anytime you have doubts or excuses, just say JFW.

  1. What's been your most challenging writing moment to date?

I remember a time a while back when I was querying The Charge. I had gone through multiple drafts and many, many queries. I felt like the story was high quality, but I was still getting nowhere. I didn't have an iphone at the time (which might be a good thing) and I remember feeling anxious anytime I was away from the computer as I waited for query replies. I don't know if I felt like giving up, but I definitely felt discouraged.

  1. What's the worst thing you've ever written? The best?

I think Destruction is the best thing I've ever written. Although, book 2 in the series might actually be better. I've written a lot of crap. My worst is probably a book of poetry I wrote in a spiral in high school.

  1. What draws you to fantasy as a reader? As a writer?

I live in the real world. I spend all my time here. If I have control of the world, why wouldn’t I add magic?!

8. What does a perfect day entail for you?

My husband. A margarita. A good book. Being outside. Some combination of those things. J

9. In high school you were most likely to ….

Be way too cool to read young adult novels.

10. You're stuck on an island... what 3 books would you kill to have with you?

Would it be totally narcissistic to take Destruction and The Charge? ;) How about the 6th and 7th novels in the Harry Potter series and The Bible.

11. Do you share any traits or characteristics with your protagonist?

Hmm…other than being a dark wizard, you mean? ;) My protagonist and I are pretty different, but I poured a lot of my love for my family into him. He loves his wife and kids more than anything, and so do I.

12. Where else can we find you?


@SharonBayliss

As a child, Sharon enjoyed playing in mud, collecting frogs, and was so certain that there was a ghost in her closet that her mother admits that she half-expected to really find one there. She began writing her first novel at the age of fifteen (handwritten in a spiral marked ‘private’).

A proud Austinite, Sharon never saw much sense in moving anywhere else and got her degree in social work from the University of Texas at Austin. As an author and social worker, she has devoted her life to making the lives of real people better and the lives of fictional people much, much worse. 

When she’s not writing, she enjoys living happily-ever-after with her husband and two young sons. She can be found eating Tex-Mex on patios, wearing flip-flops, and still playing in the mud (which she now calls gardening). 

Destruction is available at Amazon. You can also grab an autographed copy exclusively from The Book Spot.

Stricken (The War Scrolls) #teasertuesday #newadult

Happy Tuesday, loves! I thought it was time for another teaser from Stricken, Book One of the War Scrolls. It's been a while since I've shared anything from this one. Here's a little refresher on the story for y'all. :) 

Eons ago, the Fallen risked everything to save themselves and carve out a future for their people amidst the devastation of the Demon Wars. Now the Fallen and their kin are being cut down by a deadly virus none saw coming.
When Nephil warrior Kaeden St. James sets out on a quest to find a cure, he and his blade-brothers discover eighteen-year-old Anya Mathis, a human with a past as dark as it is mysterious, cowering in an abandoned house in the heart of MemphisTennessee. The corrupted races are chasing her, and Kaeden is determined to find out why.
What neither he nor Anya suspect, however, is their attraction to one another, or the frightening truths lurking in the shadows. The painful childhood memories she fights to bury hold answers that threaten to tear the world apart.
Only Anya can save the Fallen from their fate, but when they discover her family's part in the creation of the lethal virus, old alliances shatter, and her life hangs in the balance. Kaeden must choose between the future of the angels and the human girl he's pledged to protect, and his choice will change everything.
Demons are rising, and this time, they plan to win the war for dominion once and for all. 

* * * 

"Who is it?"
"Open up," Kaeden answered, and thumped on the door again.
Anya hesitated with her hand on the knob, trying to decide if she wanted to let him in or not. Dealing with the warrior right now didn't appeal to her.
"I brought food."
Her rumbling stomach decided the matter. She pulled the door open.
Kaeden stood on the other side with two brown take-out bags in his hands. He looked tired. There were shadows around his blue eyes.
"Hey," he said.
"Hey." Anya moved away from the door, locking her eyes on his black boots. The toes were scuffed, dried mud splattered against the strings.
Kaeden stepped inside and pushed the door closed behind him. For a minute, they both stood there, not speaking. The awkward silence stretched between them, broken only by the sound of canned laughter from the television. And then the smell of crisp bacon wafted through the room. Anya's stomach growled loudly.
"Hungry?" Kaeden asked, hefting the bags. Hueys was emblazoned on the sides.
"I'm starving," she said, relieved he didn't bring up their earlier argument. Rehashing it now would only piss her off again, and since she'd more or less resigned herself to his presence, glaring and yelling at him probably wouldn't really help matters.
Kaeden offered her a small smile, the right corner of his upper lip curling. "Your doorman didn't want to let me in."
Anya narrowed her gaze. "What did you do to him?"
An amused smirk crossed Kaeden's face. "What makes you think I did anything to him?"
Anya crossed her arms over her chest, not swayed by his innocent expression. She had a feeling no one told Kaeden what to do, least of all a doorman well into his seventies.
"I didn't do anything to him, Anya," Kaeden swore. "I told him I was helping you out while your aunt's gone."
Translation: he was babysitting.
Anya took a deep breath, refusing to remind him, yet again, that she didn't need a keeper. He'd probably just ignore her anyway. Pain in the ass angel.
"Lead the way," he said, shaking one of the bags in his hands.
"What did you get?" she asked, glancing back over her shoulder as she moved across the living room toward the dining room.
Kaeden didn't answer, instead setting the bags down on the table and reaching inside. He pulled out a Styrofoam container before holding it out to her.
Anya accepted it gratefully, and eased down into a chair.
Kaeden reached into the bag again and pulled out a can of Dr. Pepper and a bottle of water. "I wasn't sure what you liked," he said.
"Water is fine," Anya responded. She popped open the container, and nearly groaned aloud at the sight of the massive burger and pile of steak fries waiting for her. Her mouth watered. "This looks great. Thank you."
"No problem. I figured you might be hungry." Kaeden pulled another container from the second bag before sliding into a chair across from her.
Anya lifted her burger from her tray and bit into it. Her eyes rolled backward. The burger was amazing.
Kaeden opened his own tray.
"Veggie burger?" Anya asked, swallowing.
"Yeah." Kaeden popped the top of his soda can and took a long drink. "We don't eat meat."
Anya paused with her burger halfway to her mouth. "Do you mean angels in general or your family?"
"Angels."
"Oh." Anya took another bite, chewing thoughtfully. She'd never before considered what angels ate. As big as Kaeden and his brothers were, she certainly wouldn't have pegged them as vegetarians. "Why not?" she asked.
Kaeden arched a brow.
"I'm not trying to be rude," she hurried to explain. "I'm just . . . curious. Is it a religious thing?"
"No, it's not a religious thing. It's a practicality thing." The corners of his mouth tilted up into a smile again. His blue eyes lightened. "There is no slaughter house in heaven." He took a big bite of his burger, watching her.
"Oh." Anya shook her head, unsure what to make of that. "What are they like? Angels, I mean."
Kaeden swallowed. "They're unyielding, stubborn. Most of the elders act as if they're stuck on earth by choice." He scowled, his blue eyes seeming to catch fire. "They're a bunch of bastards for the most part."
Anya felt her eyes widen. He sounded so . . . bitter.
"You asked," he pointed out when she continued to stare at him, at a loss for words.
"Do you live with them?" she asked.
"Yes."
"But you don't like them?"
"As a collective? No, I don't."
"Aren't your brothers full-blooded angels?"
"They are." Kaeden bit into his burger again. "But Abriel and Dahmiel were born here. They've never stepped foot in Heaven. They fight to protect your people and our own because it's the right thing to do."
"And the others don't?"
""Some do, but most of those who Fell fear Heaven. They believe once they've suffered for their sins long enough, Heaven will take them back."
"What about you?" Anya asked. "What do you believe?"
"Me?" Kaeden stared off into space for a long, silent moment while Anya ate her fries. "I believe they're fools," he said then, clearing his throat. "Heaven will never forgive the Fallen for the damage they've caused, and will never welcome them back. God is not merciful, especially not to those who defy him."
"Then why do you fight for the angels?"
Kaeden pursed his lips. "Heaven stopped sending warriors to defend your world long ago, but the Fallen remain. Despite their faults, they keep your people from being overrun by Hell because they believe this world is worth saving. They believe your people are more than souls to be used up in the final battle and spit out."
"Oh."
Is that how God viewed humans? As nothing more than a means to an end?
Anya didn't believe that. She wasn't sure what she believed, exactly, but she wasn't as cynical as Kaeden. God didn't abandon humanity. He wouldn't.
Would He?
