Author Bio:
They say you should never meet your heroes, but Brantwijn Serrah says otherwise. At a Los Angeles book signing in 2012, Brantwijn met one of her all-time favorite authors of urban fantasy, Jim Butcher, who couldn't have been kinder or more encouraging to her as an aspiring novelist herself. As it turned out, the book he signed for her that night gave her the first spark of inspiration for Goblin Fires, the story of a goblin Knight hopelessly in love with her princess.
When she isn't visiting the worlds of immortals, demons, dragons and goblins, Brantwijn fills her time with artistic endeavors: sketching, painting, customizing My Little Ponies and sewing plushies for friends. She can't handle coffee unless there's enough cream and sugar to make it a milkshake, but try and sweeten her tea and she will never forgive you. She moonlights as a futon for four lazy cats, loves tabletop role-play games, and can spend hours watching Futurama, Claymore or Buffy the Vampire Slayer while she writes or draws.
In addition to her novels, Brantwijn has had several stories published in anthologies by Breathless Press, including the 2013 Crimson Anthology and 2014 Ravaged Anthology.  She's also had a short story published in the Cleiss Press Big Book of Orgasm and the anthology Coming Together Through The Storm. She hopes to have several more tales to tell as time goes on.  She has author pages on GoodReads and Amazon, and loves to see reader comments on her work. Her short stories occasionally pop up at Foreplay and Fangs, her blog.

Spotlight Shout Out to the Lady Jo March!

Every so often, you're lucky to come up on someone whose light shines so bright....but they can't see it. So, you hang back and wish, you hope that they find the courage to pluck up and soldier on.

Then they do.

And you sit back, chuffed because not only did they do it, now others know how much they glow.

Jo March.

One, I love that name because of Little Women. And two, because THIS Jo March is someone I've never hugged in person or spoken to on the phone but whose soul sings the same song as mine. She is someone who hides in the background a lot, kicking ass and taking names for a lot of us at Breathless Press. She gives countless hours of personal time to make sure we stay on top and organized.

I wanna pay it forward in a big way because she is someone I adore and admire endlessly.

Let's show the love and help the world get to know the Lady Jo March!

And Madness Begat Bounce. And It Was Good!

The Muse has always nursed a crush on Jas T. Ward.

Least, I think so!

Jas is a shining star in the sky and can fashion pleasure from pain. She can take wrench emotions from you that leave you high on bliss one second and plummeting in despair the next.

She is just that damn good.



Jas T. Ward has always used writing as a necessary escape. With a past that is marred with a difficult childhood and domestic violence as well as being homeless as an adult, Ward lost her creative voice when she lost her soul mate to suicide.

Finding that creative voice once again in writing in social media via blogs and creative writing groups, it was the fans that encouraged her to put her literary weavings to paper for them to enjoy.

Ward lives in Texas with her dog and cat- Author Dog Pumkin and Writer Kitty Orleans and is the proud parent of three independent children. 

When asked why she writes, Ward answers simply:

Reading saved me. It was my salvation and my haven. I now strive to pay that gift back by writing books that can give the same to others. And to keep myself sane.


So, it is my extreme honor to bring attention to Jas's newest offering, Bounce: A Story From The Grid (Shadow Keepers Series). Bounce drops on 9/3/14 but pre orders are available on Amazon! Looks divine and delish...*purrs* 

Write on, Jas! Write. On!

Le Hop o' The Blog

I bet ya'll are blinking at this, eh? I know, I know...been a long while since I participated in an actual blog hop. I always mean to but more often than not, I get caught up in other things and all my good intentions take the highway to hell in spectacular fashion.

However, my good friend Kat Perrin asked and I couldn't say no because she is ten types of awesome.

Now, in case no one knows what a blog hop is, let me sum it up: A blog is beneficial to all parties involved as it introduces YOU the reader to new names and people as we all "pay it forward" in due fashion.

So, it is my greatest pleasure to introduce you all to the amazing Lady Perrin:

K. Perrin is a 25 year-old trapped in the body of 36 year-old. She writes what she calls "bad poetry," and is currently working on her first novel. She reads almost anything, preferring paranormal, sci-fi, and fantasy. Her poetry reflects on her life, while her novel focuses on her reading preferences, blending the lines between her favored reading genres. She holds great pride in her only writing accomplishment: two poems published in her highschool creative writing anthology. She won fourth place for her poetry, and holds onto the hope that her novel will have a greater impact. A mother of two beautiful children, K Perrin values her family above all. Her blog, Nightmares and Chocolate, chronicles her journey as she writes her novel. She covers her doubts, fears, and triumphs as well as the little tidbits of advice she has picked up from around the web. She also covers her adventures in motherhood and her battle with depression and PTSD.

You can keep up with this beauty at:

Now, how about some questions for moi?

What am I currently working on?

I'm multi-tasking! Deep into the 3rd revision of Timeless Seduction (Book 3 of my New Camelot series), I'm also dabbling with a Halloween Themed short story as well as a Holiday Themed one for December. One of the two will have some characters from New Camelot in it because I just can't help myself!

So, how is any of that different from what else is out there?

Well, thank you for asking! I like to think I've given a new twist to the dusty legends of Arthur, Merlyn and the gang by bringing them into the 'here and now', with a few extra "zingers". I wanted to create a "new" world with only the most chivalrous of codes from the "old" one. I like to think I was able to do that and perhaps give a vision of what "might have been".

Why am I writing this?

Simple enough. I know nothing else. It's been burning inside of me, begging to be told.

Do I have a writing process?

Well....*laughs* It's organized chaos on a good day for me but yes, I do. I can't say I "do" full plot outlines, I mainly research, make loose notes, compile a musical playlist pertinent to my main charries, grab some chocolate and go go Gadget! I am pretty eclectic in that I don't write in order. I will give over to whichever voice is speaking loudest then I go back and put it together.

Welp, I guess that's about it for me on my end!

So, I need a solid? Please take a mo and go visit the Lady Perrin's Page and show her some love! And now, it is my absolute pleasure to introduce to you the two lovelies I've tagged!

First up is Perci Brooks!

Perci T. Brooks alter ego of Wendy M. Schuffert who adores cats, anime, Japan, manga, Korean Pop, Japanese rock music, Japanese shows, yaoi, yuri, het, etc... She's a little ahead of her time possibly.

She started writing when she was just 10 till her older sister saw that she has writing talent and at 16 she got the pen name Perci T. Brooks and wanted to become a famous author, but there was one thing holding her back till now and that was the fear of the rejection letters and therefore she never finished.

Next is my good friend and brother of my heart...Aaron Speca!

He is an engineer, a father, a husband, a poker player, a fantasy footballer, a former comic book collector, a movie buff.

And a damned fine writer whom I greatly look up to!

Hey Ma! Look! It's a Demon!

First and foremost, tell us a little about yourself. A mini-bio, in three sentences. Go!

I am a wife to the most supportive husband ever and mother to three awesome boys!  I am a fast food junkie and chocoholic (Oreo Cookies are a personal favorite of mine which I have to have when I write).  And I am a hopeless optimist and dreamer!

What part of the day motivates you most?
I get my best writing done in the evenings and at night.  Right after supper, I’m usually on the laptop typing away!  There’s just something about darkness that gets me in the frame of mind that I need.  The sun goes down and the creative juices just start flowing!

Dr. Who, Dr. House or Dr. Seuss?
I just started watching Dr. Who not long ago since so many people that I know are huge Whovians.  I just had to see what all the fuss is about.  I immediately fell in love with Amelia Pond and the chemistry that she has with her Dr.  So yeah Dr. Who all the way baby!

Do you ever find yourself torn between what YOU want for the character and what ACTUALLY ends up happening?
Yes and no.  With the Leila Stone: Memoirs of a Demon series, I basically knew exactly what I was going to do with this book and I also know with the next.  After that, I have no clue though.  With the book that I am currently working on, it’s been a whirlwind!  I started out thinking that I had it all mapped out.  Then in chapter one, it started taking twists and turns that I never imagined!  It’s really like I’m not even the one writing it sometimes!


If you could choose any writer, who would love to have as a mentor?
I have the best mentor there is, in my opinion, the wonderful and talented Torie James!  *big smile*  I couldn’t ask for anyone better so I won’t even try! (Torie James, reading this as she prepared the blog, got vereeee teary eyed and wants you to know how proud she is of you! <3 font="">

Do you have a particular style of writing? Organized or do you wing it?
I try to organize myself and get a general layout set up, even if it’s just in my mind.  I even print out pictures of people that are the inspirations for my characters and put them up all around my dining room, which is where I write at.  But, as I mentioned earlier, the story constantly evolves on me and I end up winging a lot of it!


Preview:

I was created by Lilith shortly after she was kicked out of The Garden of Eden for failing to submit to Adam.  God cursed her to eternal life in darkness and without Him.  She created my brother and sister just before making me.  Seeing Adam and his new wife Eve as the source of all her troubles, Lilith made it her business to do everything in her power to fuck up their world.  Perhaps it was because she felt that they were lesser beings than she was.  Lilith was made to be powerful, even before she was cursed to the life that she led for so many millennia.  Lilith trained us to hate the humans with a passion that burned as hot as her own.  My first great accomplishment came about twenty years after Adam and Eve had their first child, Cain.  Yes, I am responsible for inciting the first murder that the world has ever known; although, it was nowhere near as difficult as you would possibly imagine that it was. 
I had infiltrated Cain’s life and his bed about a year before the killing happened.  He had often spoken to me about how he knew that his parents, and his Lord, favored his little brother Abel over him.  Yes, Abel was the golden child; he was the handsome one, the hardworking one, the perfect one.  He was the one that had to go.
