“Day’s End” Is Live

aurorawatcherak

Darkness Falls.

They fought the USDA, but winning the battle didn’t assure their survival. The fundamental transformation of America is still underway and the next blow may be worse than the first. When the power grid goes down and stays down, people begin fleeing the cities in search of food and heat, forcing Emmaus, Kansas to re-evaluate what is important to them and what they owe strangers on the road going by the town.

While some distant community members undertake perilous journeys home through a human landscape that is rapidly becoming unrecognizable, others face life-altering decisions right where they are.

Darkness is falling and a new day will dawn, seared in blood and fire.

The first three books of the series are free today in honor of their new little sister.

Interview with Jane Bwye August 2018

aurorawatcherak

I suppose we could consider this a relaunch of my author interviews. And what better person to be the focus of that than Jane Bwye, who was my very first author interview about this time four years ago. Jane is here to tell us about her new book and what’s going on in her life. Welcome back, Jane.

Jane Bwye PortraitThank you for asking me round to your place again, Lela. I’ve just done some prodding in the past and discover that I’ve been here a few times. In 2014 I believe I was the first person you interviewed on your blog. Such a lot has happened in four years, and the questions and answers have changed.

I lost my husband last year. Despite misgivings about being able to make ends meet, I’m thankful that my needs are small, and I can get by with a mixture of pension and a revived…

Stay Tuned for the Cover Reveal

aurorawatcherak

A Threatening Fragility, the third book in the Transformation Project series, will head to the beta readers next week. It should be published this fall. Soon, the cover will be ready for preview.

I recently took a couple of weeks mostly off social media to complete the working draft of the book. I reached a point where I recognized that maintaining my Twitter page was costing me time I needed to finish the book.

This book’s journey has been a more complicated than previous novels. When I published Objects in View (Book 2 of the same series) almost a year ago, I planned to turn my attention to the 3rd book in my fantasy series, Daermad Cycle, but I struggled to keep my attention on the project. I’m writing it and what I am producing is good, but I’ve had trouble concentrating on my stated primary project. I’ve written…

Interview with Stephany Tullis

aurorawatcherak

Today’s interview is with STEPHANY TULLIS. Welcome to the blog. Tell us something about yourself. 

Stephany Tullis Author PicHello, I refer to myself as a ‘A Native New Yorker’. Typically, when most people think of New York, they think of New York City—one of the biggest cities in the world. I’m from upstate New York about two hours north of NYC. However, I love The City—as it is also called and have visited it many times but would not like to live there-. New York, however, is a city known for its style, flare, theatre, shopping and so much more. It is a progressive city where its residents and often first-time visitors learn the importance of coping with their environment and circumstances with an attitude and perspective of succeeding with the hand life has dealt them. It is that seeming ability to cope and handle it all that I bring to my personality…

Interview with Suzanna J. Linton

Today’s interview is with Suzanna J. Linton. Welcome to the blog. Tell us something about yourself. 

Suzanna J Linton headshotI live in South Carolina and have nearly my whole life. I’ve always loved books and telling stories. My mother likes to say I would scribble on anything I could get my hands on. I’m married. My husband has been very supportive in my desire to write, which has been a serious blessing. As well as writing fiction, I also do a little freelancing on the side.

At what point did you know you wanted to be a writer? 

I don’t know if there ever was any one point I knew I wanted to be a writer. Writing has always been something I’ve wanted to do; it’s as natural as breathing. I remember trying to write a story at around age 9 but I mostly wrote poetry until high school. That’s when I started…
