This Month’s Shows June 2015

A message from my author pal, Rami Ungar, reminded me that I don’t use this forum to announce my Blog Talk Radio shows and I should. (Thank you, Rami for asking!) Not everyone who follows me here, follows me on Twitter or Facebook, so I am really being foolish not making announcements here as well. That being said, I should probably tell you a little about my shows.

I began doing Blog Talk broadcasts in June of 2009 on the Red River Radio Network. I didn’t do very well, but over the years, I’ve gotten better. I also have a fantastic assistant/ co-host, Christina Giguere, who keeps me on track and on the air. She sits there quietly, unless I make her speak, and handles all the details that keep the show running smoothly. She’s also and author who writes under the name Rachel Rueben. Check out her blog here.

Every month, Christina and I do two shows. The first is Dellani’s Tea Time which is every second Monday of the month at 4:00 PM Eastern time. The other show is What’s Write for Me every fourth Wednesday at 4:00 PM Eastern time. I used to reserve Dellani’s Tea Time for children’s authors, and What’s Write for Me was focused on those who write for adults. About a year ago, I changed it up and now host all types of authors on both shows.

This month’s Dellani’s Tea Time is Monday, June 8 at 4:00 PM EDT (3PM CDT, 2 MDT, 1PDT). This Monday, my guests are Jessica Rising, Debra Ann Fisk and Michael Tabman. Here is the link. If you can’t listen live, this link will take you to the podcast.

What’s Write for Me is Wednesday, June 24 at 4:00 PM EDT (3PM CDT, 2 MDT, 1PDT) and will feature Stephanie Osborn, T.L. Jones and Al Jendrasik

Introducing Something New!

Normally, I ask my friends and fans for input for my next shared book, but I felt so compelled to share Something New, I’ve simply decided to do it.

something new coverSomething New is a novel I wrote from June 25 to June 29, 2014. I got the idea and off it went. I love when stories arrive like that, all in a whirl. I dove in and let the tale embrace me. This one was especially fun and I hope I did the story justice.

Austin Templeton is a young British actor who looks enough like Matt Smith to engage the American Doctor Who fans. He’s been hired for a sci-fi adventure called The Magician. A quiet man, he is finding fame challenging. I absolutely fell in love with this character, and his female counterpart, which is one reason I think it was so easy to write. There is something so genuine and endearing about Austin. I also like his leading lady. She’s a lovely girl, who doesn’t seem all that impressed with Austin when they first meet. Fortunately, he wins her heart, as I hope he will win yours.

The story is set in a fictitious city of my own invention. I’ve never given it a name, but it’s somewhere Up North, though not in the Northeast. I have used this location in more than one of my novels and will probably never give it a proper name, though it’s become very real to me. I hope you enjoy Something New.
