The Meanest Character (with Christina Leigh Pritchard)

 Hi everyone today we have Christina Leigh Pritchard, author of the C I N series, with us talking about the meanest character she's ever written.  Please give her a warm welcome, and now I'll let her take it away:

First off, hello everyone and thank you, Lindsey, for having me on your blog today! I also want to give a
special shout out to L.M. Preston, author of The Pact: Retribution (available September 28th!) for putting
this mini blog tour together. It’s been wonderful learning about new books and authors!

“Who is the meanest character you’ve ever written?”

I want to say that Frank is the meanest character I’ve ever written (from the C I N Series) but I’m going
to have to go with Officer Lindsey instead. She’s a tyrannical leader in a futuristic novel (The War in the
Wall) I wrote back in the 1990’s (unreleased—but think of the Hunger Games x20!)

Officer Lindsey is fat and bitter. She’s complex but means well in her twisted way—lining up the parents
of her kidnapped children—and forcing them to watch as their parents are executed. This, of course, is
only the beginning. Officer Lindsey is so cruel, sometimes, while writing her scenes, I couldn’t stomach
what was being typed. I cried a lot and took lots of walks on the beach to clear my head!

(Now you see why I have never released this one! It’s the most violent and graphic book I’ve ever
written—and it was during my young teen years. Hormones? LOL!)

To learn more about the C I N Series and future books visit the blog dedicated to the series or check out
the debut novel C I N on Amazon.

Thanks for stopping by, Christina!  How interesting that her meanest character was named "Officer Lindsey;" can't say the two of us are alike haha.  Be sure to check out her book!

What Do You Love About Writing (with Bryna Butler)

Hey everyone!  Today we have YA Paranormal author, Bryna Butler, as a guest on the blog.  Please give a warm welcome and be sure to check out her books like Of Sun & Moon.

Thanks for having me on the blog today, Lindsey. I’d also like to give a special shout-out to L.M. Preston, author of The Pack-Retribution. L.M. is the genius behind this week’s whirlwind book tour.

I’m so excited to be on the blog today to talk about what I love about writing. Though I’ve never been a professional educator, I was once told that I must love teaching because I’m good at it. I strongly disagreed. To the dismay of my family of teachers, I don’t love teaching. What I love is the story. It just so happens that a good story can give a lesson staying power beyond any pop quiz or term paper.

Early in my career, I worked as a journalist. I think that a journalist’s heart still beats inside me. I feel it pump when I meet someone new or come across a fact I’ve never heard before. Curiosity is a beautiful thing for it leads to the story.

The job of fiction writing is even more exciting as it allows, no encourages, authors to take a fact and grow it, shape it, mold it, into something extraordinary and new. In my Midnight Guardian paranormal series, I mesh the very real, rural Midwestern U.S. with the fantasy world of Atlantis in a story woven with elements of suspense, romance, drama, and even comedy.
Cover for 'Midnight Child (Midnight Guardian Series, Book 3)'

What I love about writing? The story.

Thanks again to Lindsey for inviting me to the blog today. Tomorrow, be sure to check out her guest post on my blog,

The Pack Retribution: Emma Michaels hosts

Hello everyone!
My name is Emma Michaels and I am the author of the ‘A Sense of Truth’ series and Owlet (coming out October 13th!). Here are a few of my favorite things!
1.       That feeling when you’re writing and you are so immersed in the story that you feel like you’re flying. It is a moment of complete freedom and one of the best feelings in the world to me.
2.       Spending time with my fiancĂ© and pup!
3.       Chinese Food. I think with my stomach and would love to have my pro bono work be here or my reading but I just can’t help it. I LOVE Chinese food. I can be in a TERRIBLE mood and if you put Chinese food in front of me I will be delighted.
4.       Connecting with readers and other authors!
5.       Learning. I love growth. I never want to stop growing and in my opinion some of the most important growth comes from emotions and knowledge. I try to take every opportunity I can to grow whether it is a trip to a museum or stopping to speak to someone telling a story. If something catches my interest you can be sure to find me looking it up online, reading about it and trying to find interactive ways to learn even more. While school and I never got along very well, education is a very big deal to me, no matter where it comes from.
6.       Plotting out new story ideas!
7.       Reading. This one is almost an extension of the answer above but not quiet. I love reading. It is my escape and I truly believe in the saying “Those who do not read live only one life, those who do, can live infinitely more.”
8.       My pro-bono work with authors and my art
9.       Walks in the wilderness!
10.   Last but not least trying new things!
Thank you for having me on your blog, to everyone reading and to LM Preston for hosting this wonderful tour! Stop by her Facebook page on September 9th for a chance to join in the party for The Pack – Retribution!  It is going to be a blast!
To find out more about Emma, you can find her and her books online:

Pack Retribution Blog Tour with amazing hosts!

So this week is going to be a little crazy because we have the Pack Retribution blog tour going on for Lm Preston.  The great thing Lm has done with this tour is allowed us fellow authors to connect with one another and share with our followers about our work and hers.  So hopefully throughout this week you'll learn a little about each of us.
Want to meet your hosts?

Lm Preston
L.M. Preston was born and raised in Washington, DC. An avid reader, she loved to create poetry and short-stories as a young girl. With a thirst for knowledge she attended college at Bowie State University, and worked in the IT field as a Techie and Educator for over sixteen years. She started writing science fiction under the encouragement of her husband who was a Sci-Fi buff and her four kids. Her first published novel, Explorer X - Alpha was the beginning of her obsessive desire to write and create stories of young people who overcome unbelievable odds. She loves to write while on the porch watching her kids play or when she is traveling, which is another passion that encouraged her writing.

KaSonndra Leigh
 "Author of the Lost Immortals Saga and the Path Seekers Series. I’m also a mother, blogger, reader, gardener, home renovator, and a slayer of undead Egyptian mummies in Tomb Raider. I believe in karma, coffee, and seriously wish that the producers of Xena would bring my favorite show ever back."

Nicole Olea

Her name is of French origin, though she's never been to France. Forever a lover of art and all things pertaining to Literature, she hopes to obtain knowledge from her writing career, rather than popularity or fame. She wrote her first story about aliens and goats in the 8th grade and has had a passion for story-telling ever since. Her friends and family are her biggest inspiration, and the occasional cup of coffee. She enjoys being part of the Indie community and sharing her stories with the world.
Bryna Butler
 Indie author Bryna Butler pens an engrossing and refreshingly original take on the paranormal in her debut Midnight Guardian series. Butler's young adult paranormal novels feature strong female leads and are woven from elements of horror, suspense, comedy, and mystery, all in a modern, small town setting.
Butler is inspired by authors like Rachel Caine, Charlaine Harris, Lauren Kate, Joss Whedon, Neil Gaiman, Stephenie Meyer, and MaryJanice Davidson. Her work contains no profanity or explicit scenes, making it appropriate for pre-teen as well as teen reader

 C Lee McKenzie 
Our wonderful friend, C Lee McKenzie, won't be able to make it, but she has wonderful books you should check out!

Christina Pritchard

That's everybody!  I'm looking forward to it, and I just wanted to let you guys know that this is what will be going on with the blog for this week.  Now and then I may still be able to squeeze in other posts, but I would like you to offer a warm welcome to these amazingly talented ladies!  Hope you enjoy it!  There's some great prizes you can win as well.

Getting in a relationship... With your SEQUEL

Writing a sequel to your first book is like getting into a new relationship.  You fell entirely in love with your first book, and now you'll have to start all over again for this upcoming sequel.  It's sad in a way. You have to say farewell to the book you were dedicated to, and dedicate yourself to this new book.

In a way I guess the sequel is like the "new guy" in your life. It sounds cliche, I know, but I'm not kidding. You don't really know where you want to go with the sequel, and even if you do have it outlined... it's still going to take some time. 
It's like a book open just sitting there on your desk, waiting for you to do something with it.
But where am I going with this?
For weeks I've been meaning to talk about what it's like to be writing my upcoming book, sequel to Cursed With Power.  Lately, since I have my own copy of CWP, I've been reading it. For one, I wanted to see what the final product looks like.  Secondly, it's allowed me to reconnect with Celestria.  I'm about halfway through the book, taking my time (since I'm in no rush), and I've realized a lot.  Despite all the struggles, somehow in the end Celestria and I managed to connect in a way I doubt either of us imagined. It's sad to know that with this second book I won't be working with Celestria; I won't be able to connect with her on such a personal level again as I did with the first book.  That is not to suggest I must say a final farewell to her, but in a way it feels like it.
And now the idea of working with Leal on a very personal level is a bit scary and exciting at the same time. While I have the sequel planned out (all the way to the end), it'll be interesting to see where Leal takes me. After all, do we always stay with our plans? The original CWP ending was very different from the final one that made to publication. So who knows, maybe we'll switch it up and this one will have a different ending as well.  Only time can tell.
Here's the sequel.  And speaking of which, I may try to come up with a temporary cover for the time being and actually write a few new chapters.
Coming up next: Bookmarks!

College is.... overwhelming

I actually really do like college -I mean where it's going to take me and all-and in general I do like my classes.   But let me be honest... it's overwhelming.  It's necessarily that it's even become difficult yet, but I return home feeling too tired to get into anything major. Hence why the blog has been a bit quiet, and also why it took me till today to add Laura in so she can fix the pages on the blog. (If you haven't noticed, they're not working for some reason).

So I promise I haven't forgotten about you guys. I'm just trying to get on my feet again.  I can't even remember the last time I sat down and wrote something coherent... and that kills me.  So while I'd love to update you all, I do have class shortly. Just wanted to give you a quick FYI, but I'll be back later on.
Before I go, thank you again to those of you who have been buying Cursed With Power.  Can't wait to see what's happening with sales!  And that signing in November is so far away yet right around the corner.  (Yeah right.... it's not anywhere close.)

And ladies... Alaire sends his love.

Coming next: Talk about the upcoming book

Told myself I wouldn't cry... but I did

For the longest time I have been reading other authors' blogs.  It's always so fascinating to hear authors talk about their reactions when they finally had the first hard copy of their book in their hands.  You can almost feel the excitement with them -like wow, it finally happened!  Today I'd like to share my experience with you.
Now unfortunately this is two days late, but I've been exhausted and was finally able to drag myself to the computer this morning.

Two days ago my copies of Cursed With Power finally arrived at my doorstep!  Needless to say, I've been taking pictures and sharing other readers' pictures.  So excuse the lack of words, but first let me share some pictures...

I don't think it struck me at first.  I was looking at the copies inside the box and it just didn't seem to register in my brain.  The books were there in front of me, but I couldn't grasp it.  Then later that night I opened the book and looked at the first chapter and it suddenly hit home.  I got teary eyed, and believe me I told myself I wouldn't cry.  But it was finally real, you know?  Seeing the paragraphs finally on paper... it seemed so surreal.  To be honest, every author deserves to know that feeling.
Ironically enough, my friend in Michigan actually got his copy before me.  (Of course he sent a picture to rub it in lol.)  So it seems Cursed With Power has already began a journey of it's own.  From the printer in South Carolina, to Michigan, to Maryland.... the journey has started!

This is the one in Michigan!

Several pictures have been sent in, but a lot of readers are still waiting for their copies.  I'm hoping you guys get yours soon, and remember that when you do send in your pictures!
open mic
Hopefully I'll be back later on tonight, but if not I'll be returning on Sunday night or Monday morning to tell you about the open mic I'm attending this Sunday.  It's in Baltimore, and I'll be a featured reader!  Bringing to life CWP in Baltimore... I'll see you there.

Coming up next: CWP's adventure to Baltimore!

Story behind "In the darkness they are flames. In the daylight they are shadows."

I can't remember how long this has been sort of the "short pitch" line for Cursed With Power, but if I had to guess... it's been around for a while.  You've seen it around, but what does it actually mean?  What's the story behind it, and how did it end up being alongside the mentioning of CWP?
Glad you asked.
Now it is true that "in the darkness we are flames, in the daylight we are shadows" is actually a quote directly from the book.  However, originally it wasn't a quote and actually started out as just an idea I had.  The idea of society viewing Dark magicians as "flames" and "shadows" elaborates more of what the story is about.  I don't want to give away anything of course, but anyways, I also feel like this pitch line can be interpreted on your own.  One person may see it as how society views Dark magicians while another might see it as how the Dark magicians view themselves.  In my own, that's the kind of pitch that works out for both the author and readers... it interests you, it keeps you guessing, it allows you to ask the questions and read the book to uncover the answers.

I realize this was a very short post.... But that's because my next post after this is about writing the sequel!

Casting for Cursed With Power!

We all have those moments in our life where whether we wanted to admit it or not, as writers we imagined the "dream cast" for our books.  Today, upon request, I'd like to talk about the dream cast for Cursed With Power.  See who made it to the list, and then leave a comment with what you think.  Have someone who would better fit the role?  Feel free to share!
Katie McGrath as Celestria Hale
While Katie doesn't have red hair, she could easily dye it and play an excellent role as Celestria.  I've seen her in Merlin, and while I know she's a new actress, she does show a lot of potential.  Not to mention, have you seen the dresses she wears on the show?  She always looks gorgeous!  What really draws me toward her is the fact that on the show she acts like an "innocent" lady when she's really conflicted and twisted.  Who's to say she couldn't pull off being Celestria?

Johnathon Rhyes Meyers as Leal Irvine
You might recognize Johnathon from The Tutors, and while I don't imagine anyone actually approves of his role on the show, he does it quite well.  He's young enough that he could branch out to new movies/shows, and what's not to love with that face?  A handsome guy to place the mysterious Leal... sounds perfect.

Ben Barnes as Alaire Sencler

From Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian to Dorian Gray, Ben Barnes has definitely matured.  I suppose in some ways he's still a bit "new" to it all, since he hasn't been in anything (that I can think of) that brought out more attention for him (besides Narnia).  Who knows, though, he may just be the right guy to play as Alaire.  Plus in case you didn't know he's actually 31 years old! We don't have to be worried that he'll look to "young" for Alaire's part.

Jennifer Lawrence as Dyanna Hale

This is why we call it the "dream cast" because we all know that after Hunger Games Jennifer Lawrence is probably going to be living the life in Hollywood.  Either way, I actually thought of her before she was involved in Hunger Games.  When it comes to Dyanna, we won't be seeing Jennifer's brunette hair... We want to see her blonde!

Joseph Morgan as Aldemund

Most of you are probably most familiar with Joseph from The Vampire Diaries as Klaus. Again, he's actually older than he looks (also 31), so he is right where we want him to be for Aldemund.  Plus he has the dirty blonde hair, and with the long style... he'd be set!  Have you seen the guy on TVD?  He's creepy and demented... And we're not looking for a sweet guy to play Aldemund.  We may have already found him.

Those are primarily all of the main characters I wanted to note for now.  Of course there are other characters I could have mentioned, but since I have a latte this morning I'm wide awake and feeling inspired to write more of Punished With Destiny. Hope you enjoyed this!

Amazon, giveaways, and local readings!

So since the release, I didn't mean to fall off the Earth and seem like I had abandoned you guys. To be honest, it's a been a bit of a crazy week with school and the release.  But I have good -no exciting news!  Cursed With Power is officially available on Amazon now.  I realize I didn't post the links when it actually came out on Amazon... So here I am doing it late!
US paperback
US Kindle

I'll post the links to the UK versions when I come back later on.
Besides that, yes I did order both business cards and bookmarks.  The bookmarks were just ordered, so we're waiting on those... But I do have a surprise for Alaire fans.  I won't say just yet -hence the "surprise"-but I'm hoping you'll enjoy it!  Definitely giveaway material!

Now before I rush over to my next class -time flies by!-I'll also let you in on one more secret... I've been finding places where I can read excerpts from Cursed With Power. Conveniently enough they're all in the Baltimore area, which is nearby for me, family, and friends (seeing as we all live in Maryland). Should I choose to attend these events, I will be posting the information on here as well as on my official website.  For those of you who don't live in Maryland, I realize you won't be able to make it -but I'll ask my friends to get pictures or video and I'll post it up!
Oh and lastly before I go, guess what someone bought these week (not me; a friend):

A friend of mine purchased CWP on kindle today!

So excited!!!!! I love my readers/fans -you’re all awesome :D
Remember to send in pictures when your book arrives!

NEW RELEASE: Cursed With Power

And just when you thought there couldn't be any more surprises, your publisher emails you in the morning to inform you that your book has released a day early!  But hey, who's complaining?  Cursed With Power is now officially a new release for this month.  Don't believe me?  Go ahead and check it out yourself...
During all the excitement of this week, I haven't even gotten around to ordering my own copy -note to self: go order a copy!-but I am so thrilled that others pre-ordered while they had the chance! Despite the fact that my countdown was ruined (no day one?), I'm eager to see how the book turns out. After two years of looking at your book on Microsoft Word, one does wonder how it will look in actual book format.
If you order a copy, send in pictures of the book! We want to share them around! (you can decide whether you want yourself to be included in the picture as well, but this is a fun way to share with other fans and potential readers... and in a way it can be like an album of where CWP "travels.")

Where can you buy the book?  I've got all the details -so don't leave just yet!
  • CWP is now actively for sale on Old Line Publishing's website.
  • There's a 2-4 day wait before the e-book format releases... so we're almost there!
  • In the next 5-6 days it will be available on Amazon (worldwide!); keep checking their site daily, but I'll post the link as soon as I have it.
  • In 3-4 weeks it will be available on Barnes & Noble; again, I'll post that link as soon as I have it
  • Walk into your local bookstore and request a copy (it can be ordered directly through my publisher even if they're not stocking it in stores)
And if you don't live in the U.S. don't worry! You should be able to walk into your local bookstore and request a copy (which can be ordered directly through my publisher), or you can wait until the book shows up on Amazon since it'll be available worldwide.  

Don't forget to spread the word!
I can promote the book till my hands fall off, but in the end it is the readers who have the most power and influence.  Here's places where you can promote/support...
  • Goodreads -it's not up yet, but it should be there as soon as B&N has entered in the data; share your review of the book
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Amazon
  • Facebook -like CWP's page and tag the book in your posts relating to it
  • Twitter -hastag #CursedWithPowerRelease or #CursedWithPower
  • Blogger -if you read the book and want to share your review, why not do it on your blog?
  • Whatever else I forgot!
So again thank you to everyone who has supported and continues to support this book.  We have an exciting journey ahead of us, so join in and don't be shy! 
That's enough rambling from me... Whew, what a day! And it's only 11:45am!  Enjoy the rest of your day.

Countdown: 2 days until the decision

Time just seems to be flying by this week!  Before we know it, it'll be Friday.  For those of you who already have pre-ordered the book, I cannot thank you enough. This is such an exciting journey to share with you, and I apologize in advance if I've already said that several times before. If you haven't pre-ordered and would like to, there's still time!
But enough about pre-orders... Let's get into more fun with this countdown.
For starters I'd like to say that I know there's been a lot of talk about Leal and Alaire.  What's it all about?  Have I been foreshadowing or suggesting something?  To be honest, of all the men in the book Alaire and Leal are my favorite.  They're... interesting to say the least.  Now you guys know how much I hate spoilers, so I won't give away anything.  Just trust me; once you read the book, you'll understand.

There's something I want to share tonight that I actually haven't talked about yet.  Before Old Line Publishing found an interest in Cursed With Power, you may remember I was seriously considering self-publishing.  There's something I learned from other self-published authors that I don't think I'll ever forget...
No matter who your publisher is, you have to be certain this is the book you are willing to stand or fall with.
And I am very pleased to say that I am willing to risk it all with CWP because this honestly is the book I have fallen in love with writing and the one I hope readers fall in love with reading. (See what I did there?)

If you want to keep things interesting, feel free to join other fans and potential readers on Twitter supporting the release.  Remember all you have to do is use the hashtag #CursedWithPowerRelease
A huge thank you to everyone who already has been tweeting about the event.  This Friday is fast-approaching, and this is one of the many ways you can help spread the word!

And now sense it's already midnight here, I should be heading to bed and thinking about the blog post for tomorrow.  I promise there's more in store; time was against me tonight since I was at college for most of the day (until 9pm if you can imagine).  Loving all of the support from the fanbase; keep it up!  Only two more days... or one now since it's 12am!  Woohoo!

Countdown: 3 days until the rivalry

I felt extremely guilty for missing yesterday's post to go along with the countdown... So before I start on my college homework, here I am to catch up on it!  3 days until the release! Time seems to fly -literally, I had no idea today is Tuesday.
For those of you who have already pre-ordered the book, I am just as excited as you are to have the book arrive at my doorstep!  If you haven't pre-ordered, though, don't worry there's still time: go pre-order! When you pre-order that also means I'll be signing your book... There's your motivation. I've done my job... Do I get paid now? *sarcasm*
If you follow me on Twitter, you may have realized my tweets are all relating to: college, my cat, Cursed With Power, and promotional material that I create throughout the day.  I won't lie... I love creating little promo material -such as the countdown pictures (as seen above) that I change with each passing day. There's something very satisfying about it. And if I'm the only person who does it... Then I'm sorry that I'm weird -it's part of the job.
See what I mean? It's just addicting.
Anyways, where was I... Oh right! So this week has been crazy.  I have been doing my best to spread the word about CWP, but in the end it really will depend on what you -the readers-think of it. Regardless of what happens, this has been an amazing journey, and I would love nothing more than to continue it. There are so many exciting things I have planned for us; this is only the beginning!
CWP will be available for purchase on Amazon (worldwide!) and Barnes & Noble, as well as in e-book format (Nook, Kindle, etc.).  Keep checking Amazon and B&N... Should be showing up by the end of this week!
And this? This is the official book jacket! Very pleased with it, and can't wait to see what the actual book will look like once it arrives.  Remember to take pictures and send them in -we want to show other fans/readers and potential readers!
Enjoy your Tuesday night everyone.  I have a journalism test to study for... best get back to that!  3 days until #CursedWithPowerRelease

Countdown: 5 days until the secrets

Be there for me
With the release of Cursed With Power only being 5 days away, a lot is happening -and quickly!  The Cursed With Power Blog Tour has already begun. Tonight Kristia posted on her blog with an interview and excerpt all relating to CWP.  Definitely check out her blog; it's great, and I'm honored that she has continued to support me through all of this.  The link: click, click.
For those of you who are curious about the giveaways, I promise you that they do indeed exist.  I'm ordering bookmarks very soon, and my new business cards have already been shipped to my house (just waiting for them to arrive).  All of this and more is coming your way, though I will admit it probably won't happen until after September 7th.  Still, though, there's so much exciting happening all at once that we have to look forward to!

Also as I understand it Old Line Publishing has distributors in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia... so for those of you who don't live in the US, I'm finding out all that I can about how you can go about ordering your copy!

Remember if you pre-order this week you will get an autograph!  Make sure to pre-order! Kindle and Nook versions of the book may not be releasing until a week from now, but I'll keep everyone posted.
And since I've been trying to not repeat the same activities each day throughout the countdown, tonight I'm mixing it up with some quick and fun little facts! (Don't worry, no spoilers.)
  • Leal's name means "loyal." Something interesting to remember when you read the book... The question is: where does his loyalty lay?
  • In the first version of the book Wilhem's wife had a short role in the book.  This was taken out and never returned upon publication.
  • Each book in the series (there are five in total) are told from a different Dark magician's perspective.
  • Alaire's cross necklace wasn't added in until later on... And during the later versions of the book (including upon publication) the significance of his necklace was finally revealed.
  • The first cover ever made for Cursed With Power was actually what inspired Celestria's physical appearance (red hair, green eyes, etc.)
The days are passing more quickly.  I'll be stopping by again tomorrow.  Hope everyone enjoys their labor day weekend!  (I don't have college in the morning so I'm happy!)
