Paulette Forshey_Portrait1FRIDAY SPOTLIGHT & GIVEAWAY   7/29/16 – Paulette Forshey, is our guest author today. I have known Paulette as a virtual friend for a number of years.  I first learned about Paulette when I lived in Ohio and I searched out other Ohio authors.  While we did not live too far apart, regrettably we never got to meet in person. I have followed Paulette over the years and bought some of her books, too! She is an award-winning romance writer, with beautiful book covers and is an extremely supportive author friend of mine.  I bought one of her books recently with two heart-warming tales and I have mentioned it below—awesome book, Miracles From the Heart, and is just one of eight books by this author. Please give Paulette a warm welcome to the fan club and comment below for your chance to win her giveaway…she is giving away 1 book of choice, to two commenters.  Now give Paulette, some love!

FRIDAY SPOTLIGHT & GIVEAWAY 7/1/2016 – Thank you so much, Launa, for taking the time to come talk to us about your books. We want to thank you too, for your generous offer to give away your eBook Lies to the members of the fan club.Lies by Launa McNeilly

Keep reading, the FREE eBook link will be within this spotlight somewhere…

A number of years ago I met Launa online, at an Amazon forum for Maine Writers. She came back with a big warm welcome! I was born and raised in Maine, but was living in Ohio at the time–we started chatting online through various author circles and stayed in touch. When I went to Maine in 2011, it wasn’t long before we had our first personal meeting and luncheon. I already knew we had a bond…I’m certain it wasn’t just because we were both authors and both from Maine. Our paths crossed for a reason, and soon Launa became family to me. I love her dearly, and I know you will too! It was important for me to do this spotlight with Launa, because she truly is an amazing writer! Please help me in welcoming her to the fan club by commenting at the end of this post…Give it up for LAUNA MCNEILLY AUTHOR. **Hands clapping-crowd cheering!**

With that said Launa, let’s get on with your spotlight.

Launa McNeilly Author

1.) What led you to become an author? I had a story in my head and needed to write it.
2.) What genre do you write? I write fictional drama/ mystery and paranormal.
3.) When you write, do you prefer silence or do you like to listen to music or the television? I have written while the TV is on but much prefer silence. Though when the scenes are playing in my head, it doesn’t matter what is going on around me, as the focus is the writing.
4.) Do you have a particular place you prefer to write? I always write in my recliner. I’m comfortable and I can concentrate on getting the story typed onto my laptop.
5.) How long did it take you to write your first book? My first book was quick because I had it in my head for so long. It took me three months to write it, but as writers know, in creating a book it’s usually the easy part of the process.
6.) Where do you get your inspirations from to write? My inspiration for writing comes from the characters that seem to pop into my head and when I listen to them, a story is born.
7.) Can you describe the feeling you had when you held your first published book? The day I opened the box to see my first novel in book form was unbelievable. I held it, smelled it, opened it, closed it, and stared at the cover with my name on it. I won’t say it was as much a miracle as holding my newborns, but it was close.
8.) What book are you currently working on? I have finished my fourth book, “In The Shadows Of Boston” which is now in the editing phase and I hope to have it out by the end of the year at the latest.

Crying Bear by Virginia Wright | Cover Release

Hi Everyone,

I’m so excited to bring you a new cover for Crying Bear: Yes, Bears Cry Sometimes, Too! There are also updates under way and Crying Bear will be released  as a 2nd edition. It had a wee bit of a make-over due to problems people had reading it in their eReaders. The improvements should make for a better read both on Kindle and other eReaders. X Fingers Crossed!
