5 Stars for Fusion

I was blown away today by Sandra at My Fiction Nook. I was leaving work, feeling apathetic after a mediocre class when I started to read Sandra’s review of Fusion. I loved this!!! For a second installment, despite the heavy topic and the pain and the drama that ensued, this book was as close to perfection for me as possible. She went on to say so much more and all spoiler free, so go read the rest of her review.

Heartwarming Kink

That’s a pretty good description of Feathers From the Sky, which was released today. I re-read it after not seeing it for a good month, and there is certainly some kinkiness found in this story. And snow! Living in Minnesota, we get a lot of snow, and we grumble about it. Cal Thompson, however, loves snow, even shoveling it. Buy it at Dreamspinner. It’s part of their Advent Calendar as well. Cal Thompson is going a little mad over the Christmas holiday, stuck in a tiny house with fourteen members of his immediate family.

Fusion Tour Stop – Jamie Fessenden

Today I’m talking about the long-lasting effects of childhood emotional abuse on Jamie Fessenden’s blog. Survivors like Kevin Magnus are often invisible, and people around them might not understand why they comply so easily and don’t stand up for themselves. They are labeled as wimps and weaklings. But after a childhood of persistent and systematic emotional abuse, brains are rewired. Please click the link above to read more about emotional abuse in the context of the North Star Trilogy, and then if you’d like further information, The Invisible Scar website offers many resources including a great article to better understand how emotional abuse differs from simply yelling at a child on…

Fusion Tour Stops – All Over the …

I’m on three continents today! I’m surely going to be jet lagged by the time my head hits the pillow, but it will be so worth it. Here’s my itinerary: My first stop is in England where I talk to Jay Northcote about bringing humor into an angsty story. Next, I fly to Australia to dish with N.R. Walker about the joys and struggles of writing and reading a series. Then after a long flight over the Pacific Ocean, I talk with Charley Descoteaux about agoraphilia during her Kink Week celebration. And now enjoy a little E.L.O. while people flashmob all over the world. 🙂
