Good morning viewers, I am busy with volunteering for Heartfelt Promotions. I now have my website listed on theirs and a link to other information about me and my books. I have been locating romance authors who are interested in doing blog tours with HFP.  I emailed a bunch and just received my first rejection. This author says she is to busy right now but thanked me for thinking of her.

I was interviewed on the Barbara Bradley blog, “There’s all this stuff in my head.” Please stop by and say “hi” or leave a comment for a chance to win a print copy of my book, “Poems About Life, Love, and Everything in Between.”

Hello again viewers. I am back for another day of posting to help John D. Mimms, celebrate the release of "The Tesla Gate." I too, am a talented author of 6 published books by three publishing companies. Please stay and check out my website. I also canvas paint, which make great gifts and home decor'. Thank you and enjoy this days post, which is also a writing tip, entitled "Writing Paranormal."

                                                                                               

When it comes to fiction writing, almost anything goes. That is why I love writing paranormal stories. The author can go completely over the edge and make something unbelievable seem believable. When it comes to ghost stories, I get a lot of my inspiration from real life experiences. Not necessarily my own either. I watch television programs that partake of the supernatural and paranormal flare. Programs from ordinary people who claim they experienced either an afterlife experience, or a haunting.


Some of the stories from my paranormal anthology, “Wicked Intentions” are based on actual hauntings. In The Legend of Lake Manor, I placed my young psychic, Cassandra Lopez, in a haunted mansion I fashioned on my knowledge of a three-story mansion in my hometown and information from television about a restaurant/bar in Ohio, supposedly ruled by demons so violent that the local police are constantly closing it down.

A television documentary about a young mother plagued by ghost sightings since childhood, inspired The Haunting of Barb Marie and her gift/curse.

And The Apartment, in which my newlyweds, Bill and Gayle, are plagued by sightings of evil ghosts that threaten their marriage and theirs lives, originated from a real apartment haunted by the ghosts of two homosexual lovers who died violently. The legend says no tenant is able to stay there until the spirits are chased off by a paranormal investigation team.

On the Discovery Channel, I got the idea for Summer Wind. I learned of the colonial explorer Jonathon Carver who lived during the 1700s and whose ghost is believed to be haunting the Summerwind estate, built in the early 20th century. Carver’s ghost is, supposedly, searching the house’s foundations for deeds to a vast tract of land (10,000 square miles) given to him by Sioux Indian chiefs as a reward for the peace treaty he created between two warring tribes. In my Summer Wind, 29 year-old Ginger is mysteriously drawn to the old mansion, and like the many owners of the real mansion, the haunting had a negative and profound effect on Ginger and her family.

Another investigative program concerned one sister’s psychic premonitions about her twin’s murder. This led to my story, Blood Ties, and my heroine, Audra Roper’s dark, disturbing visions of her sister’s disappearance and the roller coaster of risks, heartbreak, and intrigue that followed. Dark Visions came from reading a newspaper story while sitting in a diner. A young woman began having visions of her father's disappearance that was actually his murder from years earlier. So, my Carrie Reynolds starts having nightmares on her twenty-sixth birthday and believes these ‘dark visions’ can solve the twenty year disappearance of her father.

I set my murder mystery, The Truth Behind the Lies, on Norfolk Island after following a three year long murder investigation on that island from 2003. In my story, Federal Police Inspector Ian Christian faces attacks, more murders and ghostly occurrences, and the killer is closer than anyone realizes.

So, the next time you get Writer’s Block, or need a new idea, try switching on the television, open a newspaper, delve into history or simply look and listen. You will find something to stimulate your muse.

Good morning viewers. My name is JoAnne Myers and I am here to help celebrate the release of "The Tesla Gate" by the multi-talented John D. Mimms.  I am the author of 6 published books by three publishing companies, so please stay and check out my website.  I also canvas paint, which make great gifts and home decor'.  Thank you and enjoy this days post, which is the blurb to my newest release, "Twisted Love" a biography true crime published by Black Rose Writing.

 

“Twisted Love” available here: http://www.blackrosewriting.com/other/twisted-love

It’s a chilling reality that homicide investigators know all too well: the last face most murder victims see is not that of a stranger, but of someone familiar. Whether only an acquaintance or a trusted intimate, such killers share a common trait that triggers the downward spiral toward death for another: they are masters at hiding who they really are. Their clever masks let them appear safe, kind, and truthful. They are anything but — and almost no one can detect the murderous impulses buried deep in their psyches. In these shattering inside views of both headlined and little-known homicides, I, the author, speak for vulnerable victims who loved or befriended the wrong people.

My book begins with the startling investigations, of the kidnapping and murder of young wife and mother Autumn Renee Williams. In March 22, 2011, a small-town alley was the setting for this ambush and kidnapping.

What really happened to the victims depicted in “Twisted Love”? Baffling questions remain unanswered, for hundreds of people. If anyone had detected the depth of depravity within these psychopathic killers, perhaps their victims who loved or trusted them would have been saved. These riveting cases of obsession, lust, murder, secret lives, and sexual depravity, exposes the twisted truth behind the façades of "Twisted Love" 12 cases of love gone bad.

Hello viewers, today I would like to introduce the multi-talented Charmaine Gordon, to my blog. Please leave any comments you would like. Thank you for tuning in.

 

Thank you JoAnne, for inviting me to be your guest. Here’s a bit about me as an introduction:

I didn’t realize at the time while working as an actor in NYC, daytime drama, commercials, stage, I’d become a sponge soaking up dialogue, setting, and stage directions. I learned many tools of writing during the years watching directors like Mike Nichols and actors including Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, and Billy Crystal. And would you believe, I was Geraldine Ferraro’s stand-in leg model, my first job giving me entrée into all the Unions needed to work. When the sweet time ended, I began another career and creative juices flowed. Now I write stories about women who Survive and Thrive taking one step and then another to move forward. ”

You can reach me at

CharmaineGordon@CharJGordon


 

What is the working title of your book?  "Farewell, Hello" is the title of my latest release, by Vanilla Heart Publishing. I’ve been under contract with them for four years. This is my fourteenth book.

Do you write under a pen name?
As an actor I used my real name and when I changed careers, I decided to stay with the familiar. In fact, when I married my second husband, my darling first died suddenly, I kept my surname. Hmm. Stubborn or maybe there’s a story in there. Not.

Where did the idea come from for the book?  The beginning of "Farewell, Hello" is based on a true story, an early part of my life. I cried and laughed while writing, something I always do, and then a shift in mood occurred when the war in Korea happened. The story moved in a different direction. I’ve often read that a story is like a circle that begins and ends in a similar place. And so does "Farewell, Hello". That’s where the title comes from.

What genre does your book fall under?  "Farewell, Hello" is Romance/ with Suspense.


Do you have other published works? Yes. I’ve been called a writing machine with fourteen books to my credit. Most are full length novels, some are novellas and some are long/short stories. When I write I keep in mind that when a story is finished, it’s time to write The End. I’m building a platform and hope it doesn’t topple when I climb up. I finish one book, do the promo and spread the word. Then another story wakes me in the night. In the morning I write. Survive and thrive, strong women who begin again to move on taking one step and then another. Now I’ve written a series of Mature Romances for the fifty five and older who believe “It isn’t over ‘til it’s over.”

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? My first book, To Be Continued, has been optioned for a television movie. I picture Annette Benning in the leading role and Kevin Costner as one of the men in her life.

What is the one or two-sentence synopsis of your book?

Blurb:

That first kiss... that first incredible, agonizing, bellyache-making first kiss. Soon, Joy and Danny are inseparable, planning a future -- a life, together.

A kiss goodbye couldn't prepare the high school sweethearts for all that lay ahead. A family crisis, a tornado, and the Korean War brought their plans to a screeching halt, and changed their futures... but maybe not their forever.

 Is your book self-published, or represented/published by an agency?  Vanilla Heart Publishing offered a contract to me four and a half years ago. Together, we’ve forged a bond of trust and friendship. I couldn’t ask for a better home for my books.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?  I write and the next day I edit so there are no first drafts until I send it to my publisher Changes may be suggested; a word here, a paragraph there. The rewrite is fast. That’s where listen and trust comes in. "Farewell, Hello" absorbed about three months of writing time. Mentally, it seemed like a year.

What other books or authors would you compare this story to within your genre?  I’ve been told my style of writing is similar to Anita Shreve and Susan Isaacs for humor combined with realistic stories. What honorable company to be in.

Who or What inspired you to write this book? A picture in my mind kept returning until finally I had to write about how I met my first love. Now I can breathe easy knowing the story is told, based on truth. Read it. Get lost in the innocence of romance in 1948.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?  Not only does a war interfere with the lovers plans but use your imagination to picture the young pilot try to reconnect after hanging up on his sweetheart only to find that a tornado has brought down phone wires across the country and he can’t reach her. . .What happens next changes the course of their lives.

Are there any writing-related websites you have found beneficial in your writing?  I belong to Coffee Time and Savvy authors and on Sunday, I participate in WEWRIWA, a community of writers who post eight sentences on Sunday for constructive critique.

Where can we find your work? (Ex: Website links, blog links, publishers
links)

Good morning readers. I am happy to be a part of the Innocence Proclaimed Blog Tour. I hope you enjoy my blog and choose to check out my other pages. My post today is an inspirational writing tip entitled "Never Give Up."  Also, I have blurbs, excerpt, and buy links for my newly released fantasy anthology, "Loves, Myths, and Monsters," a collection of 11 fantasy tales starring the Mothman, the Chupracabra, Mermaids, time travel, a demonic cellmate, and etc. Please leave a comment along with your name and contact info, for a chance to win a print copy of my poetry collection, "Poems About Life, Love, and Everything in Between." Thank you for stopping by.

NEVER GIVE UP: by JoAnne Myers

For as long as I can remember, I have had an artistic flare-whether that be for writing, painting, sewing or drawing. I recall as a child how much I enjoyed drawing. The writing came later. My seventh grade English teacher was Mrs. Henderson-a young mother and wife. She gave us a writing assignment and after gifting me with an A+ told me I should consider writing as a career. She meant as a journalist. I did not take her advise and become a journalist (one of my many misgivings). My mind went toward other things as many young girls dream of-a husband, home, and family of my own. I put my love for writing and painting on hold for years. I unfortunately married a man who like my mother never encouraged me to be artistic. It was not until my children were grown and I no longer had a husband, that I went back to my first love-art. I got a late start, but always encouraged my children and others to partake of artistic endeavors. I now have six books under contract with two publishing houses. So my words to you all, is that no matter what road you choose, never forget your passion, and always keep it close to heart. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from enjoying your natural talents. You might need to put art on a temporary hold, but never ever give up.

Excerpt

For the Love of Ginnie

I don’t know why I wanted to save the life of a person I never met. Maybe it was because I was tired of bachelorhood. Maybe it was because I was a chemist and the unusual, and unexplained, fascinated me. Or, maybe, it was because I was obsessed with this twenty-year-old, dark-haired beauty named Mary Virginia “Ginnie” Wade I had read about. These questions filtered through my mind as I drove to the bar to meet my best friend Will.

Will’s favorite hangout was “The Bling,” originally an old truck stop on State Route 93, in Nelsonville, Ohio. The place became a restaurant/lounge/dance hall and brothel when semis no longer became a necessity for long distance hauling. The invention of the transporter also replaced many other primitive jobs such as mail delivery and travel. “The Bling” was best known for the large flashing lights suggesting scantily clad women in seductive positions above the front entrance, and its “bulldogs,” monster-sized bouncers in Armani suits who patrolled its two-block perimeter, inside and out.

“The Bling,” just another joint with a sleazy atmosphere, like all alcohol-serving establishments, differed only in that it catered exclusively to class “A” clientele. Politely—or maybe not so politely—everyone called it the “Whorehouse for the rich and bored.” Its reputation grew. Its income grew even faster.

I pulled up in front and exited my vintage DeLorian, tossing the keys to the baby-faced valet, by-passed the doorman with no questions asked. Just an exchange of large smiles between us. Will was also part-owner.

As I entered the twenty-four carat gold, electronic doors, Will immediately spotted me and motioned me toward the bar with his diamond embellished hand.

I loved sitting at the bar. It was the perfect place to see the shows. “Two double scotches and water,” Will said, as we shook hands, and I slid into my seat beside him, just as the tall, leggy waitress produced the drinks in an instant.

I immediately recognized the “girl” as one of the latest “do-everything-like-a-wife” robotics. Robot manufacturing had become a booming business since the last war destroyed the immune and reproductive systems in most humans, especially females.

“I don’t know why you waste your time flirting with non-humans,” I said, cautiously sipping my drink. The immense emptiness of not being able to acquire a wife and soul mate, I felt at this age in my life, almost drove me to alcoholism, but my boss and mentor, Doctor Obar Gabry, intervened, saving my life and promising career.

“Because, dear friend,” Will began, “beggars can’t be choosey, and ladies are in scarce supply. Beside, these ‘girls’ are all pink inside.”

“Ugh!” I said, gulping down a large swallow of alcohol as if it could wash away my friend’s vile mental picture from my mind.

“Come on, Alex, loosen up. Live a little.” Will motioned to the waitress for another round of drinks. “You’re alive, so act like it. Don’t let your beautiful mind go to waste. This world needs people like you. People started treating me like a god once I became an entrepreneur, and I love it.”

I had to laugh. Maybe my self-pity stage had outlived its use. Only I can find a wife for myself. I certainly won’t ask Will to hook me up. His sense of values are as artificial as the women he beds.

The pain and loneliness I felt at times from yearning for a life-long partner and family wasn’t easy to accomplish. Scientific and Medical technology still could not reverse the sterilization effects on the female species.

Sure there were some human women to date. But most were either sterile, too old, too young, or there was just no chemistry between the two of us. I wanted that spark that unites between two people madly in love...like my parents. I never met any couple happier with one another then my beloved parents. That’s the kind of love I want…never ending.

The emptiness and frustration of not finding companionship at times made me want to die. But that was the loneliness talking. I know that now. I love life. I want to live, and I know who I want for a wife. It’s just that meeting her would be a little tricky.

Abruptly, I asked, “What do you think about time travel?”

“Are you serious?” Will asked. “Scientists have tried to conquer time travel for hundreds of years, and failed.”

“Maybe they failed because they weren’t Doctor Gabry and me.”

Will looked at me in awe. “Oh, my god, you’re serious!”

“We discovered something today in the lab,” I said, giving him an arrogant smile. “We believe this is the answer.”

“So who is to be the Guinea pig?”

“Me.”

Silence came from Will, then a gasp. “That could be suicide.”

“Or the biggest discovery of the thirtieth century.”

Hello viewers, I am back for Sneak Peek Sunday. I hope your enjoy my selection of mystery. This is from my true crime biography available here:

Blurb for "The Crime of the Century"-a shocking true story

The residents of Rolling Hills, a hamlet in southeastern Ohio, were horrified when the dismembered bodies of two missing teens were pulled from the local river. Multiply suspects surfaced, but only one was railroaded, Richard Allan Lloyd, a known nudist and hothead.

What began as an evening stroll turned into what found only in horror films, and dubbed ‘the crime of the century’. 18 year old Babette, a voluptuous beauty contestant and horsewoman, and her 19 year old boyfriend Shane Shoemaker, a jealous and possessive unemployed printer, were last seen crossing a trestle bridge. Within fourteen days, their mutilated torsos and severed heads and limbs were unearthed, suggesting satanic cult activity.

With an investigation smeared with contradicting statements, and a botched crime scene, investigators built a flimsy case against Richard Lloyd. The three-week trial was based on police corruption and ineptitude, fairytale theories, and forensic mishandling.

This heinous crime shattered the sense of security for Rolling Hills, destroyed two families, and forever scarred the town. This story is a detailed account of finding justice for Babette and Shane, and of one man’s perseverance to gain his freedom from death row.

Hello viewers, my email address has changed. I recently got hacked into so I got an entire new email address through Frontier. Here is the new address  joannemyers@frontier.com  

Here are the blurbs and buy links to all five of my available books, "Murder Most Foul", "The Crime of the Century", "Wicked Intentions", "Loves, Myths, and Monsters," and "Poems About Life, Love, and Everything in Between".

Blurb for "The Crime of the Century"-a shocking true story

The residents of Rolling Hills, a hamlet in southeastern Ohio, were horrified when the dismembered bodies of two missing teens were pulled from the local river. Multiply suspects surfaced, but only one was railroaded, Richard Allan Lloyd, a known nudist and hothead.

What began as an evening stroll turned into what found only in horror films, and dubbed ‘the crime of the century’. 18 year old Babette, a voluptuous beauty contestant and horsewoman, and her 19 year old boyfriend Shane Shoemaker, a jealous and possessive unemployed printer, were last seen crossing a trestle bridge. Within fourteen days, their mutilated torsos and severed heads and limbs were unearthed, suggesting satanic cult activity.

With an investigation smeared with contradicting statements, and a botched crime scene, investigators built a flimsy case against Richard Lloyd. The three-week trial was based on police corruption and ineptitude, fairytale theories, and forensic mishandling.

This heinous crime shattered the sense of security for Rolling Hills, destroyed two families, and forever scarred the town. This story is a detailed account of finding justice for Babette and Shane, and of one man’s perseverance to gain his freedom from death row.

Blurb for “Murder Most Foul” a detective/mystery

When two dismembered torsos wash up on the banks of the local river in the small industrial town of Pleasant Valley, residents are horrified. Between contradicting statements, police ineptitude, lust, lies, manipulation, incest, the motorcycle gang The Devil’s Disciples, crooked cops, and a botched crime scene, everyone becomes a suspect.

The young beautiful Jackie Reeves, a registered nurse, believes the killer is a man from her past. She contacts the dangerously handsome FBI Agent Walker Harmon. An arrest is made, but Harmon and Jackie believe an innocent man is being railroaded by local cops. Determined to find the truth, before anymore killings, Agent Harmon and Jackie are forced to run a gauntlet of deep trouble and turmoil, which marks them for death.

5***** for “Loves, Myths, and Monsters” a fantasy anthology  June 2014

Review: This was a very worthwhile book and it was very diverse. The stories ranged from romance to myths, legends and monsters both human and nonhuman.

Reviewed by: Linda Tonis

Member of the Paranormal Romance Review Team

                                                                                                                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Hello all, I am proud to be a part of the Love, Honor, and Hope blog. It is for a very worthy cause as you may realize from the article below. Please enjoy my website and my post below, and leave any comments you would like.

A Benefit for the United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation/strong

Eight authors are joining forces to support one fantastic cause. Beginning June 24, 2014, Love, Honor, & Hope, an anthology of eight full-length novels, will be available for 30 days at the low price of $0.99. That’s right, just 99 pennies. The best part is that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation.

PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, affects approximately 19% of the military men and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq—and that’s just those who have been diagnosed. The percentage is expected to grow as more of our military members seek treatment. It’s a heartbreaking trend for the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, especially with benefits being cut and promotions being threatened.

The United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation is a non-profit charity that focuses on providing FREE care to combat military members, both active and veterans. They can’t do it alone, which is why we’ve made the decision to step up and do something. All eight of the authors have their personal reasons for supporting this cause.

Cherime MacFarlane, author of Heart of the Hunter said, “For me, it’s the way a very quiet man, my uncle, receded into the background whenever a family function took place. I did understand he came back from WWII that way. A young man, easy going and quick to laugh became a recluse. My father also served in WWI, as did a second uncle who returned far from the mischievous young man he was before the war claimed his youth. I was a young mother during the Vietnam era. I had friends who did not come back from Vietnam. I had other friends who did come home but were permanently damaged by the things they saw. For me, this is an opportunity to give back something to the men who served their country when the call came. My uncles and father are gone now, but I do hope, in some small way, to pay it forward for them. This is a tiny step, but as the man once said, every journey begins with that first step.”

It’s easy to sit back and talk about helping our veterans and active military members. To step up and help is something all together different. We are answering the call for help.

Will you answer? All it takes is for you to log on to Amazon or Barnes & Noble and spend 99 cents, and then hopefully share the great news on our labor of love. Not only will you receive eight full-length novels for your enjoyment, you will also tell our men and women who suffer from this terrible and debilitating illness that we’ve got their backs.

Love, Honor, & Hope is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble from June 24 to July 23. It includes the following full-length novels:

Out of the Box Awakening- Jennifer Theriot

Early One Morning - Aubree Lane

Lost and Found-Jennifer Yarbrough

Scary Modsters- Diane Rinella

Tropical Dreams - Kelly Cozzone

Sisters of the Night - Linda Lee Williams

Heart of the Hunter- Cherime MacFarlane

Piece of Heaven- Sammie J.

I think these poems are befitting for this blog hop. They are part of my newly released second edition poetry collection entitled,  "Poems About Life, Love, and Everything in Between".

DAD’S MEDALS

My dad joined the Army when just a young boy.

Taking away most of his childhood joy.

So young he learned to be brave and strong,

forgetting fear when things went wrong.

Working in the field when the notice came.

He was needed, and his country called his name.

He put on a uniform and left that day.

To fight on foreign soils an ocean away.

With a rifle on his back, freedom on his mind.

He served well the country he had left behind.

Three trips across that mine field he made.

To places where three fallen soldiers laid.

Forgetting about fear, he was strong and brave.

As the lives of three wounded men he saved.

Dad, I was fully grown before I ever knew,

just why your country gave medals to you.

Your courageous acts, together and yet apart.

Gave you the right to wear the Prestigious Purple Heart.

I wonder what your thoughts might have been.

as across the mine field you carried those men.

Only peace was God’s plan you would say.

Fore it took good soldiers to keep it that way.

Now with men like you, its certain we can rely,

our country will always see “Old Glory” fly.

My father served in the Army for seventeen years.

I dedicate these humanitarian poems to him and to other veterans.

                                                         * * * *

HUMANITY

Through the darkness a light is seen,

for it is the happiness of ones dreams.

The remnants of lives lay where they may,

for war is the land engulfed in sickness and pain.

Searching for strength to escape life miseries.

Killing in the name of peace.

Hold back the hate, invest in humanity.

                                  * * * *

PARADISE

The road seemed endless,

with each step they took.

Weighed down by their gear,

emotions and fear,

they walked on every so fast.

Knowing each step might be their last.

The rain poured and the sun beat down.

As each side’s casualty became a mass.

Sounds of guns echoed all around.

As refuge became weeds and tall grass.

Each soldiers level of honor and courage was found.

As they fought bravely alongside the screams and death sounds.

While evils of man lingered amongst fields of rice,

devastation reigned in a land once called paradise.

                                            * * * *

PAIN

The lesson is of pain.

For lost souls in a land where hunger reigns.

Man and wife talk heart to heart.

For their love is all that remains.

Sanity stripped from the minds.

Only fear and dreams allowed to stay.

Why is freedom a friend to pain?

Fighting for a land incased in steel.

Stop the madness.

Embrace joy and return to laughter.

Bring back our world.

Tolerating war is absurd as the state of surreal.

                                     * * * *

HOPE

Days go by,

without a care.

So much unhappiness,

even more fear.

Where is the hope,

for the few who care,

when the smell of death lay everywhere?

                            * * * *

AFTER THE BATTLE

The fires have ceased,

but the pain remains.

What will they fear next?

Hunger, rape, or a bullet with their name?

They once had homes, families and friends,

left now with no hope, only shattered dreams.

Once they were happy, full of life.

Then the guns came,

must they take it in strife?

                         * * * *

A WORLD OF HATE

Hearts burn hot with the rage of sadness.

Turning loose, turning to madness.

In a world born to war,

but lusting for solitude.

Spirits run high in a land of plenty.

As if held together with strings of laughter.

Not knowing what is next,

just guessing at our fate.

Wanting the best,

but born to a world of hate.

                              * * * *

HEARTS OF GOLD

Fathers and sons go off to war.

Leaving behind their hearts of gold.

Fields of fire, waters of blood.

Did they not know of the horror that awaits,

or the happiness others had, and sacrifices made?

Their dreams were shattered,

but does anyone care?

Fears run wild, in times like these.

Watch out for yourself.

Watch out for others.

Surviving through the winter and the summer,

living with nothing, but pain and hunger.

Cries from the children, screams from all others.

The world looked on, as if in vain.

Stop the madness, take it away.

Leaving nothing behind, but hearts of gold.

NEVER GIVE UP:

For as long as I can remember, I have had an artistic flare-whether that be for writing, painting, sewing or drawing. I recall as a child how much I enjoyed drawing. The writing came later. My seventh grade English teacher was Mrs. Henderson-a young mother and wife. She gave us a writing assignment and after gifting me with an A+ told me I should consider writing as a career. She meant as a journalist. I did not take her advise and become a journalist (one of my many misgivings). My mind went toward other things as many young girls dream of-a husband, home, and family of my own. I put my love for writing and painting on hold for years. I unfortunately married a man who like my mother never encouraged me to be artistic. It was not until my children were grown and I no longer had a husband, that I went back to my first love-art. I got a late start, but always encouraged my children and others to partake of artistic endeavors. I now have six books under contract with two publishing houses. So my words to you all, is that no matter what road you choose, never forget your passion, and always keep it close to heart. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from enjoying your natural talents. You might need to put art on a temporary hold, but never ever give up.

Sneak Peek Sunday June 22, 2014:
 
 
I am now getting ready for the June 22th, 2014 Sneak Peel Sunday. I hope you hang around to check out my website. I am the author of 7 books published by two publishing houses. I write mystery, paranormal, fantasy, poetry and true crime. In addition, I have plans for a science fiction comedy, loosely entitled, “Invaded by 26 Planets-a comedy or at least it should be.” Kinda along the lines of a Mel Brookes movie. Right now, the plot opens with 17-year-old American twins, Sabrina and Kyle, along with their intelligent, but eccentric Uncle Fred, an amateur inventor, realizing that numerous Terrestrial scouting parties has invaded Earth. No one else realizes this Earth domination plot, not even world officials. These three are determined to save Earth, whether anyone believes them or not, which might not be hard to do. These 26 planets only observed Earth from afar, which proves to be their first major mistake. This invasion is the first actual landing on Earth, for the space soldiers. Unfortunately, for the invaders, their long distance study of Earth did not include studying the Earths atmosphere, which inadvertently causes various ill-fated, but humorous effects on the invaders.

Example 1: When Venus, which is a planet solely inhabited by tall beautiful women, crosses through the Earth’s atmosphere, it acts as an aphrodisiac and transforms the spaceship inhabitants into nymphomaniacs. Once the female scouting party lands on Earth, world domination takes a backseat to more important matters, such as getting laid, or trying to get laid 24/7. As sex does for many of us Earthlings, these Venus scouts, find themselves in hot water from then on.

Example 2. The scouting party for Pluto, which in this book is inhabited by beings similar to humans, but have dog ears, noses, and paws for hands and feet. Earth’s atmosphere transforms these invaders into various breeds of dogs. They can communicate with each other in dog language, but now their new language is inaudible to their Mother planet, preventing them from returning home. Their biggest problem now becomes staying one step ahead of Earth’s dog catchers. Not to mention their uncontrollable urge to chase cats, and socialize with Earth’s canine population. Thank you and please enjoy my Sneak Peek.

Please hang around and check out the rest of my blog. Thank you.

MY SEXY SATURDAY: June 21, 2014. Hi everyone, here is my snippett for this weeks Sexy Saturday, from my mystery/detective book, "Murder Most Foul," available here: www.melange-books.com/authors/joannemyers/MMF.html

http://www.lulu.com/shop/joanne-myers/murder-most-foul/paperback/product-21183493.html

Smiling, while descending the staircase in her white satin pajamas, she said, “I can't sleep, anyway. I prepared dinner, but the food is cold and the beer is warm.”

Dropping wearily into an overstuffed chair, Agent Harmon pulled Jackie onto his lap. He nuzzled her neck, stroked her arms, then her long, slim legs, and whispered, “As soon as I solve this case, I'll treat you to a five-course meal. I swore off love when I became a Federal Agent, but, honey, I can't leave town without you.”

Kissing more and more passionately, they drifted into lovemaking for the first time.

Excerpt form Murder Most Foul-a detective/mystery book

 Undaunted and short on patience, the agent stared at the fat jerk sitting before him gleefully puffing on a cigar, most likely homegrown in Detroit, Michigan, not Cuba. “I attend the Kingdom Hall on occasion,” he said.

“Well most of us like Malloy. He's helped rid this town of criminals. He was a volunteer firefighter, and his wife cooks for the annual policeman's ball. Hell, Malloy even coached volleyball for the kids when he wuz younger. Now a person who does that ain't all bad,” the chief declared.

Barstow's sudden burst of energy to safeguard his fishy friend, picqued Harmon's interest. What had Malloy done? He decided he wasn't leaving until he had the full, sordid story.

“So you and Malloy are pals, and he did something he couldn't get out of, and you tried to salvage his job, but the big shots said, ‘No!' Is that how it went?” Harmon asked.

“Yeah, Malloy did somethin’ real stupid.”

“I'm listening,” Harmon replied.

“The rumors of Malloy allowin' his friends and family members to snoop through the cornfield, and photograph the area after the victims were removed, was true. Everyone is curious about this crime. Nothin' this big ever happened in this town before, and the pictures were for souvenirs, you know. Then after the limbs were removed, he brought in a back hoe, and tore up the whole damned crime scene, involving Thomas.” The chief growled in disgust.

“Yeah, that was stupid,” Harmon said. “So Malloy's unethical conduct was the reason the disciplinary board was in session?”

“Yep, they made their decision this mornin',” the chief said. “He's out. There was nothin' I could do for him.”

“You'd think a cop with over twenty years’ experience would demonstrate better reasoning then destroy evidence. Unless he's covering his own tracks,” Harmon said realizing what he was implying. “Do you believe Malloy committed the murders?”

“Now, I didn't say that. A lot of officers were on this case, so a lot of mistakes happened. We never dealt with this type crime before. Many might have made the same mistakes Malloy did.”

Dismissing the chief's excuses for Malloy's incompetence, Harmon demanded an answer. He was tired of being duped by the local cops and wanted the truth, and wanted it now. Standing and placing both palms on the chief's shiny desk, the agent looked the chief square in his squinty brown eyes and said, “Cough it up, Chief! There's more to it then that. If

there were numerous mistakes made by officers other then Malloy, why was he the only one kicked off the force? Now spit it out! What the hell did Malloy do?”

“All right, all right!” the chief whined, “Malloy screwed the dead girl three weeks before she was killed–and got caught!”

The Agent was speechless. Walking to the window overlooking Main Street, he stared vacantly. Hadn't one of our witnesses suggested something like that? But–with the crisp wind howling, the citizens dining in the local cafés, others window shopping for Christmas or starting their shift at the town's businesses–this seems unreal. How can such a seemingly sweet country town be so full of bad apples, savage murders, police misconduct and corruption, evidence tampering? This town is certainly no Mayberry, thought Harmon.

“Murder Most Foul,” available here: www.melange-books.com/authors/joannemyers/MMF.html

BLURB: When two dismembered torsos wash up on the banks of the local river in the small industrial town of Pleasant Valley, residents are horrified. Between contradicting statements, police ineptitude, lust, lies, manipulation, incest, the motorcycle gang The Devil’s Disciples, crooked cops, and a botched crime scene, everyone becomes a suspect.

The young beautiful Jackie Reeves, a registered nurse, believes the killer is a man from her past. She contacts the dangerously handsome FBI Agent Walker Harmon. An arrest is made, but Harmon and Jackie believe an innocent man is being railroaded by local cops. Determined to find the truth, before anymore killings, Agent Harmon and Jackie are forced to run a gauntlet of deep trouble and turmoil, which marks them for death.

SUMMARY OF THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY:

The residents of Rolling Hills, an economically ruined bedroom community of the Appalachian region of southeastern Ohio, were horrified when the dismembered bodies of missing teenage sweethearts, Shane Shoemaker and Babette Lloyd, were pulled from the murky and meandering local river. Multiply suspects surfaced, including relatives, ex-lovers, Satanists, and the Devil's Disciple’s motorcycle gang, but only one was railroaded, Babette’s stepfather, Richard Allan Lloyd, a known nudist and hothead. The rumors of his and Babette’s incestuous relationship only electrified the townsfolk and local authorities’ hatred against him.

What really happened on that cool autumn evening of 1982? What began as an evening stroll turned into what found only in horror films, and dubbed ‘the crime of the century’. 18 year old Babette, a voluptuous beauty contestant, horsewoman, and aspiring computer programmer, and her 19 year old boyfriend Shane Shoemaker, a jealous and possessive unemployed printer, were last seen walking toward the C&O Railroad tracks, crossing a trestle bridge that overlooked the river, near an infamous 52-acrea cornfield. Twelve days later, a search party found their mutilated torsos. After another two days their heads and limbs were unearthed, suggesting satanic cult activity.

Richard Lloyd was the main suspect from the beginning. It took nearly a year, but in an investigation smeared with contradicting statements, and a botched crime scene, investigators built a flimsy case against him. A financially motivated local mistakenly fingered Richard, accusing him of forcing the teens into a car at gun point. The police alleged Richard then killed the victims at his mobile home seven miles from Rolling Hills, with his wife and other step-daughter as witnesses. They accused him of dismembering the victims before transporting them to the Rolling Hills cornfield for burial. The state insisted a ancestral relationship between Richard and Babette existed, and the reason for the jealousy killings, and Richard’s immense hatred for Shane Shoemaker. Richard’s multiply lies, his lust and jealousy for Babette, weapons availability, the hypnotized “eyewitness” and a disputed footprint expert bolstered the states misguided case against the now dubbed “evil stepfather.” Most of what was presented at the three-week trial was based on police corruption and ineptitude, melodramatic fiction, and forensic mishandling.

As a resident of Rolling Hills, Ohio, I, JoAnne Myers contrived “The Crime of the Century,” through case documents, newspaper clippings, signed affidavits, witness testimony, interviews, police reports, theories and rumors.

This heinous crime not only shattered the sense of security for Logan, but destroyed two families, marriages, careers, friendships, and forever scarred the town. This story is a detailed account of finding justice for Babette and Shane, of human injustice at the highest level, of one man’s perseverance to prove his innocence, and gain his freedom from death row, and righting a wrong.

Richard Lloyd was released on appeal after sitting on death row for five years. Prosecutors opted not to re-try him, but Lloyd and his family remained under a cloud of presumed guilt for 28-years. In 2008, two career criminals were indicted and convicted for the homicides.

Much of my painting inspiration comes from calenders and postcards. When it comes to writing, I enjoy subjects not often written about, such as the Chupracabra and the Mothman which are two stories in my fantasy collection "Loves', Myths', and Monsters'."

When not working outside my home, I spend time with relatives, my dogs Jasmine and Scooter, and volunteer my time. I am a mother of three and grandmother of eight.

I hope you enjoy viewing my artwork as much as I enjoyed creating them. My novels include: "MURDER MOST FOUL," a detective/mystery, "WICKED INTENTIONS," a collection of paranormal/mystery stories, "THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY," a biography true crime, "LOVES', MYTHS' AND MONSTERS'," a collection of fantasy tales, and "Twisted Love," a collection of true-crime stories from around the world.

I am involved with several sites, and all involve art in some way. Whether it be my original paintings or my four novels, I have always loved art.

I will be giving author interviews by way of emails on other author's websites to help promote by artwork.  I hope you enjoy my blog and find use in my work.
