How To Protect Your Creative Spark

Your creative spark must be protected at all costs. Creatives are like diamonds. Rare, beautiful, timeless and resilient. They come in different sizes and with their own unique brilliance. They don’t shine out into the night like stars. Diamonds that cut into hard places with precision, reflect light magnificently and manifest art elegantly.

My guest today is Sonia Faruqi with a character’s perspective post and details of, plus an extract from, her debut release.

Here’s the book info…..

Coralline is a mermaid who is engaged to the merman of her dreams. But when an oil spill wreaks havoc on her idyllic village life, her little brother falls gravely ill. Desperate to save him, she embarks on a quest to find a legendary elixir made of starlight.

Izar, a human man, is on the cusp of an invention that will enable him to mine the depths of the ocean. His discovery will soon make him the richest man on earth—while threatening merpeople with extinction. But then, suddenly, Izar finds himself transformed into a merman and caught in a web of betrayal and intrigue. Meeting Coralline in the ocean, he decides to join her on her quest for the elixir, hoping it will turn him human again.

The quest pushes Coralline and Izar together, even though their worlds are at odds. Their pasts threaten to tear them apart, while a growing attraction adds to the danger. Ultimately, each of them faces an impossible choice. Should Coralline leave her fiancé for a man who might betray her? And Izar has a dark secret of his own—one that could cause him to lose Coralline forever.

#GuestPost from J. Lee #author of Debut Thriller The Hubley Case #Extract @JLeeauthor #TuesdayBookBlog

I’m delighted to welcome Justin Lee with a guest post about writing and publishing his debut novel with a full time job and a young family. First, though, here’s what the book is about…

American businessman Peter Hubley lays sprawled across the floor of a Brazilian airport, cappuccino dripping down what remains of his forehead. Within an hour, his killers are dead and their bodies stolen. When an organized crime syndicate claims responsibility for the savage murder, questions are raised and the case is assigned to Special Agent Nikki Benton.

To Benton, a straight-laced FBI veteran, the Hubley case is an unusual and much-anticipated opportunity to prove herself and get out from under the thumb of her misogynistic boss. But she quickly realizes that nothing about it adds up and she may be in over her head. Her instincts prove true when her prime suspect Ben Siebert, a rebellious ex-Marine with a questionable past, is pressing a Glock 27 to her temple.

The two are forced to work together when they learn that everything – the death of the killers, the public’s assumption Hubley was hiding something, even the case being assigned to Benton – was part of a carefully orchestrated plan…and that they are the next targets. But to stop a formidable perpetrator intent on killing thousands of innocent people, they must risk everything and reveal the shocking truth behind the Hubley case.

The book is due for release on November 6th on Amazon UK and Amazon US 

Now over to Justin….

Blog Tour #Spotlight & #Extract ~ Dear Mr Pop Star by Derek and Dave Philpott #NewRelease @DerekPhilpott #Humour

**Happy Release Day**

I’m delighted to be joining the blog tour for the unique Dear Mr Pop Star, which features humorous letters to pop stars about their songs with genuine witty replies.

About the Book

For nearly 10 years, ‘Team Philpott’, as their followers fondly refer to them, have been on a quite bonkers crusade, writing good old-fashioned letters to pop and rock stars (sometimes even sent to their home addresses with prior consent!), either picking up on genuine ambiguities within their lyrics or often deliberately misunderstanding them for comedic effect.

Today I’d like to welcome Angela Panayotopulos with a guest post and extract from her latest book, The Wake Up. Over to you, Angela…

It took me six years, but I did it: a novel on love, loss, deceit, and truth. It feels good and it feels right. Who knows? Perhaps the book I wrote may be as cathartic for you as it has been for me.

#BookSpotlight ~ Bollywood Invasion by Ricardo Alexanders #Fantasy Time Slip Novel #Extract

I’d like to welcome Ricardo Alexanders as he explains the idea behind his new book…..

What if Lennon was born an Indian…

If John Lennon was born in India in 1940 with the same talent, could he still conquer the world? 

This is the very question that I kept asking myself during my writing of Bollywood Invasion. Something extraordinary had to happen if the Indian (British) Invasion was to take America by storm as the world back then was not even close to be as multi-cultural as we are today.
