Welcome to Behind The Scenes

Today's  featured author is 

Renee Spivey

Never in my life could I’ve imagine I would be on the inside of a prison cell, but sure enough in 1995, that is exactly what happened. You see, I was the ultimate good girl – perfect student, church-going, never got in trouble girl. I also was an outcast, never fitting in. Even though I knew better, it was really easy for me to succumb to peer pressure. Little did I know, being popular was not all it was cracked up to be. I should have “stayed in my lane.” But common sense did not prevail and I found myself in a situation that would change my life forever. It was the worst time, but yet it ended up being exactly what I needed to get my life back on track. Thankfully, the story didn’t end there. Come along for the ride in Once Broken…A Journey to Restoration!

Renee, an avid reader and newly published author, is a native of Huntsville, Texas. Renee holds an Associate of Arts degree in Information Technology and is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Sam Houston State University.

Renee is also the co-founder of We Are Women of Worth Ministries, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose main focus is to inspire, inform and encourage women from all walks of life to step out of the shadows of their past into a brighter future by offering life, personal and educational skills, to name a few.

About The Book

Get Me Through....The Makeover of My Life is a book for all seasons of life. It will lead you through getting out of the places that you are stuck, picking up the pieces after disruption, and releasing yourself to dream again my the future. Get Me Through is path through life's most questionable moments.

The title of the book is purposely open-ended and ambiguous because most people are trying to get through. From Kindergarten to College, people are trying to get through school. Whether you are a high paid executive, entrepreneur, or occupying a cubicle, the daily grind of work and handling life issues is a reality. Still others are trying to get through the seasons of a relationship; the harsh winter or the warm summertime feel that relationships bring. 

On the other hand, the death of a loved one or the death of one’s self-esteem may seem like, to some, as trying to wade through a cloud of never-ending darkness. Ultimately, getting through is a part of the human experience. At some point, trying to get through is a part of everyone’s process, the only difference is each person’s process is tailor made. Even so, no matter what you are struggling to figure out, you are just trying to get through it with your character and sanity intact.

#WNLBOOKTOURS Time to Say Goodbye by Parker J. Cole #NEWBOOKALERT #NEWRELEASE #INSPIRATIONAL #ROMANCE @wnlbooktous @parkerjcole

Hello! This is one of my tour stops during my one month book tour for Time to Say Goodbye by Parker J. Cole. This virtual book tour is organized by Write Now Literary Book Tours. This tour runs March 5-30, 2018.  Follow the tour here.  Book your own tour here WNL.   
ISBN-10: 1973224151

ISBN-13: 978-1973224150

Genre: Sweet Inspirational Romance

About The Author

I am an author, speaker, and radio show host with a fanatical obsession with the Lord, Star Trek, K-dramas, anime, romance books, old movies, speculative fiction, and knitting. An off and on addict to Mountain Dew and marshmallows who writes to fill the void the sugar left behind.

About The Book

Gargi Kapoor is the only one convinced her brother, Dev, is innocent of the crime he was convicted of. When he is sent to the hospital with an unexplained paralyzing disease she finds herself having to lean on the last person she'd ever want to depend on -- a man who wants her brother to pay for stealing his mother's life savings.

Leon Reckley is extremely satisfied to find the man who ripped his mother off suffering from an unknown disease that leaves him paralyzed and in need of rehabilitation therapeutic services. He's even happier when he is given the opportunity to be the therapist that makes him fit enough to return to prison to finish his sentence. No one will work harder to make sure Dev Kapoor serves every minute of his prison sentence.

Gargi never dreamed the man who has utter contempt for her brother would be the man she slowly begins to trust. Leon never thought he'd be convinced Dev might be innocent, let alone be drawn to his enemy's little sister. Together, will they find the truth? Or when Leon's job is over, will it simply be time to say goodbye?

What makes you feel inspired to write?

I am inspired by people. Everyone has an interesting story to tell. From childhood memories to experiences, to business ideas and more, people inspire my stories. If I only had one wish, I’d like to speak and understand every language in the world. Imagine the stories I could tell.

How did you come with the idea for your current story?

I love Indian food and I have a lot of Indian friends. As I was doing some thinking for the second book of my Michigan Sweet romance series, I got to thinking, what if an Indian girl started to fall for a man who’s considered ‘trailer trash’? The idea sprung from there.

What is your favorite scene in the book? Why? 

My favorite scene in this book is when Gargi calls Leon, ‘laal sher’ and he thinks she’s calling him ‘Lyle’. Throughout the book, that’s a recurring thing. When he begins to fall for her, he doesn’t even mind she’s calling him ‘Lyle.’

What is the highest goal that you desire to meet as an author?

I love connecting with my readers. My goal is to create stories my readers connect with and enjoy. It’s a simple goal but that requires a lot of effort. Learning about the craft of writing, staying up to date with market trends, building loyalty with readers, and so much more.

What is the best piece of advice you would give to someone that wants to get into writing?

Write until you get to the end. Hard part is done.

What do you have in store next for your readers?

I am working on several projects including my first historical romance, a contemporary sweet romance for the next Michigan Sweet volume, and a sci-fi novel. There’s more but they’re moreso ideas in my head right now.

#VIRTUALBOOKTOUR The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper by Fiona Ingram #children #picturebook @beachboundbooks @wnlbooktours

BeachBoundBooks is pleased to be coordinating a Blog Tour for the children's adventure book written by Fiona Ingram, Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper (The Chronicles of the Stone). The tour will run from February 26 - March 19, 2018.

About the Book

Title: The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper (The Chronicles of the Stone, Book 3) | Author: Fiona Ingram | Publisher: Bublish, Inc | Publication Date: November 17, 2017| Genre: Children's Adventure | Number of Pages: 318

Description: Continuing the adventure that ended in Britain just a short while ago, cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair, with their friend Kim Maleka, are now hunting for the third Stone of Power, one of seven mysterious stones lost centuries ago. The third stone might be located in an ancient city, hidden in the depths of the Mexican jungle.When their small plane crashes in the jungle, Adam, Justin, Kim, and James are rescued by an uncontacted tribe. James, who is wounded, must stay behind as the kids, with only a young boy, Tukum, as their guide, make their way through the dense and dangerous jungle to find the city. River rafting on a crocodile-infested river and evading predators are just part of this hazardous task.

Of course, their old adversary Dr. Khalid is close behind as the kids press on in search of the lost city of stone gods. But he is not the worst of their problems. This time Adam will clash with a terrible enemy who adopts the persona of an evil Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, and is keen to revive the ancient tradition of human sacrifice. Adam, Justin, and Tukum must play a dreadful ball game of life and death and maybe survive. Will they emerge alive from the jungle? Will Dr. Khalid find the third Stone of Power before they do?

Other Books in the Series

Book One: The Secret of the Sacred Scarab

A quest filled with danger... Seven ancient Stones of Power... Two young heroes...

This action packed Middle Grade/tween adventure tests the courage of cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair from the moment they arrive in Egypt. Can they survive a harrowing journey to discover the secret of the sacred scarab while being pursued across the desert by a deadly foe?

The Secret of the Sacred Scarab is the kind of adventure readers love! The fast-paced action, the evil villain, the secrets of the past, and the mysterious ancient setting make this a sure-hit favorite for both young and young at heart explorers.

Book Two: The Search for the Stone of Excalibur

Description: A modern day adventure as our protagonists search for Excalibur and the treasures it holds! This is a must-read for Middle Graders keen on action, adventure, and Arthurian stories! Continuing the adventure that began in Egypt a few months prior in The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair are hot on the trail of the second Stone of Power, one of seven ancient stones lost centuries ago. This stone might be embedded in the hilt of a newly discovered sword that archeologists believe belonged to King Arthur: Excalibur. However, their long-standing enemy, Dr. Khalid, is following them as they travel to Scotland to investigate an old castle. Little do they know there is another deadly force, the Eaters of Poison, who have their own mission to complete. Time is running out as the confluence of the planets draws closer. Can Justin and Adam find the second Stone of Power and survive? And why did Aunt Isabel send a girl with them?

Join Justin and Adam as they search not only for the second Stone of Power, but also for the Scroll of the Ancients, a mysterious document that holds important clues to the Seven Stones of Power. As their adventure unfolds, they learn many things and face dangers that make even their perils in Egypt look tame. And how annoying for them that their tag-along companion, Kim, seems to have such good ideas when they are stumped.

About the Author

I am a children’s author, but up until a few years ago, I was a journalist and editor. Something rather unexpected sparked my new career as an author—a family trip to Egypt with my mother and two young nephews. We had a great time and I thought I’d write them a short story as a different kind of souvenir…. Well, one book and a planned book series later, I had changed careers. I have now published Book 3 (The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper) in my MG adventure series Chronicles of the Stone, with many awards for the first book, The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and a few for Book 2, The Search for the Stone of Excalibur, and one already for Book 3! I also teach online novel writing for aspiring authors and I find that very satisfying. Relaxation time finds me enjoying something creative or artistic, music, books, theatre or ballet. I love doing research for my book series. I love animals and have written two animal rescue stories. I have two adorable (naughty) little dogs called Chloe and Pumpkin, and a beautiful black cat called Bertie.

Author Interview 

What inspired your book, The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper?

This is actually the third book in my Middle Grade Adventure series, The Chronicles of the Stone. The inspiration for the book comes from my interest in and fascination with the ancient Mesoamerican cultures of the Aztecs and the Maya. My adventure series takes my young heroes around the world in search of the seven ancient Stones of Power, and Mexico is where the Third Stone of Power may be located.

What other books have you written?

Book One is called The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and that’s where the adventure series started, in Egypt. This book is based on a real adventure I had with my mom when we took my two young nephews to Egypt. The trip and my nephews inspired the book and the series grew from that. The next book came along soon, and that is The Search for the Stone of Excalibur, set in Britain. You are right in thinking that, somehow, I have managed to weave my own personal historical interests into the series!

What do you think readers will find most appealing about your book?

Adult and child readers alike all love the information and interesting facts that I intersperse into all my books. Kids love learning new things, especially exciting and intriguing new facts. Parents and teachers enjoy that the young readers come away having experienced an amazing adventure as well as learning something about the history, geography, culture and mythology of the adventure’s location.

Tell us about your illustrations.

For me, illustrations enable a young reader to enjoy the book a bit more, and really help with getting reluctant readers interested in a story. I have a wonderful artist, Lori Bentley, who manages to interpret my ideas and very bad scrawls and create wonderful, detailed images. Everyone finds maps fascinating so I always include a map of the location so young readers can track the path the young heroes take on their quest to locate the next Stone of Power. In front of every book is a very important poem by the Egyptian god of wisdom, Thoth, and this contains clues for young readers.

What are you currently working on?

I am busy with Book Four, The Cabal of the Ouroboros. It’s very exciting and involves my interest in the Knights Templar, a favourite subject as well. This adventure is set in the catacombs of Paris, where my young heroes befriend two young French kids, siblings, who are hiding out in the catacombs. There are lot of dramatic and scary moments because, well, the catacombs can be a very scary place!
