Mayhem, Maria, & Music

Amazon

Three Against The World started life as a book my “cover girl” Maria, would be allowed to read. In a word, clean. It came before lockdown, but here she is, two years on, taking her “daily exercise”.

Maria’s mother dumped her on Richard’s doorstep claiming he was her father, and he didn’t tell Maria when he found out it was a mistake. Ben would never have forgiven him if he’d lost her.

Ben is the Jack Russell Terrier Richard adopted from a rescue centre and he is modelled on my own rescued Weimaraner. Not that she bites… or she hasn’t yet, but nobody has threatened me. It is she who taught me how clingy dogs who lose their homes can be. Even now, almost 6 years on, she values routine and gets scared if someone is missing for a few hours, and the only place she can be left alone is in the car. She came from the Blue Cross. If you’d like to help, there’s a link under The Author.

Two Face The World features Richard and Maria married. They still have Ben, but even he can’t protect them from enemies from the past. Eleanor is a baby conceived by mistake, but welcomed into their world of music. The question is, will they all survive? (I did mention suspense.)

This is Eleanor grown up. One Alone in The World is in three parts.

At 7, she falls in love with Brian, an older boy from school, and she tries to help Mum and Dad, resurrecting dangerous secrets from the past.

At 15, she’s a rebellious teenager who wins a music award… the rest is trouble!

At 18, she falls in love, but will she find a way back to the man she loves or remain one alone in the world?

A special message for fans and followers:

Hi all, my name is Tom Benson, and I’m Sarah’s guest administrator.

Sarah has been ill and in hospital for the past couple of weeks. It was unlikely that she’d be able to oversee this post going out so I dropped by on her behalf. I thought it pertinent to let you all know that her absence may continue for a little longer, however, I will monitor and respond to any issues/messages which come this way.

I know that, like me, you’ll all be hoping for her speedy recovery, but in the meantime, she could use all the prayers and positive vibes you can spare. I’ll write a brief message when I have something to post for Sarah.

The first of the five books, Dangerous Liaisons, went through a lot of rewrites and numerous edits before it became a Readers’ Favorite Award Winner, but my message never changed. As a teenager I was pony-mad. The shock came when I had my own horse and I was “expected” to follow the local fox hunt. I joined the League Against Cruel Sports instead. The message, as subtle as I could make it, is that killing for sport is wrong… utterly indefensible. There is a page beneath “Author” that explains my commitment to wildlife and abandoned pets, but I will add here that all my royalties are donated to animal charities.

Amazon Review – A Truly Stunning Achievement

Sarah Stuart’s enthralling Royal Command Family Saga is made up of four award-winning novels; Dangerous Liaisons, Illicit Passion, Dynasty of Deceit, and Sweet Temptation, plus a new novella, Sizzling Sunset. Each book is complete within itself. Having them all together in one volume is like a marvelous TV series with each book easily making up several seasons.

The story focuses on Michael, a talented but struggling actor who meets heiress Elspeth. They fall in love, and she uses her wealthy background to influence a powerful man and further Michael’s career, which takes off and he soon is a celebrity. Thus comes the first cautionary aspect of the story; dreams that come true are not always what you wish them to be.

Another is that when you marry you not only marry the person but their family and the entire “luggage” that comes with it. Elspeth’s lineage has a tradition that dates back to Mary Tudor’s time! This tradition brings with it complications and not a small bit of tragedy and intrigue.

Far more than a romance series, the Royal Command Family Saga is one of crime; murder, kidnapping, sex trafficking, incest, and blackmail! Add to all a vicious tabloid journalist hungry for dirt on Michael and fans that have no boundaries and this story\saga never stops twisting, turning, and surprising\shocking. Sarah Stuart commands the tale with her distinct style and mastery of expression.

This five book collection is a worthwhile read for anyone whose interests in romance transcends the typical limitations of the genre; yet holds fast to the concept that love, above all, is what matters most.

Co-Authorship a View in Four Parts – Part One

A fascinating post many authors might like read.

Story Empire

Hi, SE ers John here. Today I’m going to kick off a four-part series of posts on co-authorship. I will begin the subject by discussing the elements of co-authorship. Then on January 15th Gwen will explore the idea of creating a shared vision. I will return on January 27th with a view of writing coherency. Gwen will wrap the whole thing up with a summary and conclusion on February 3rd.

Now that you have the plan, let’s jump into the subject of co-authorship.

You may wonder what is co-authorship? You’re probably aware that screenplays are often written by committees. It’s not uncommon for non-fiction books to be written by two authors (or more). We are all familiar with ghostwriters. So, it is not surprising that fiction writers are increasingly partnering with another writer to develop, outline, and bring a story to…

Ghostly Intervention, my favourite book from “Readers Favorite” 2020.

Please welcome Jan Sikes, award-winning author, music lover, and jail-bird’s wife!

Hello, Sarah! Thank you so much for inviting me to stop by your blog today and talk about my new book. I am deeply grateful.

Hi , Jan, my friend from across the pond in Texas. First, tell us more about Ghostly Interference.

In “Ghostly Interference,” Jag Peters has a passion for music. He plays keyboards, and in his younger days, dreamed of being a rock star. But life happened, and he settled for comfortable versus excitement. And yet, his most rewarding and peaceful moments are spent with his fingers running across the keys.

Jan is giving us a peep!

Jag finished setting up his instrument and pulled in a chair from the kitchen, wishing he’d thought to throw in a piano stool. By the time he finished, others came through the door.

Colt made introductions, then he and the bass man plugged into amplifiers and tuned their instruments while the other man assembled a drum kit.

His nerves wound tight, Jag flashed a grin at Rena, glad she seemed at ease perched on the leather sofa. A woman with long brown hair in a single braid, dressed in jeans and t-shirt joined her. He guessed her to be in her early thirties and from the introductions, learned she was Eleanor, the bass man’s wife.

He breathed deep, anxious to get started. When he ran his fingers nimbly over the keys, confidence and calm came over him. This was his comfort zone, his niche.

Colt held up his hand. “Before we dive in, I have sweet-iced tea, water, beer, and wine in the refrigerator.” He motioned to Rena and Eleanor. “Would you girls mind bein’ our waitresses?”

Rena’s face lit up. “Of course not. It’s what I do. What does everyone want?”

Once she’d collected orders, she brushed against Jag’s shoulder on her way past him.

He almost reached out for her but thought better of it. She wouldn’t take public affection too well, he was sure of that. But that she’d intentionally brushed against him made his heart beat faster.

He was glad Colt included her and made her feel useful. Once again, he thought what a lucky guy he was.

In no time, they all had drinks of their choice. Jag had asked for wine and noted that Rena helped herself to a beer. They were opposites and yet much alike. They both needed and wanted to be loved. That much they had in common.

“I play a variety of cover tunes as well as some originals,” Colt said. “I’ve never been tied to any one certain genre. So, let’s start with a standard, I’m sure everyone knows. In the key of C, let’s do Sweet Home Alabama.”

Jag easily followed along and took a ride when Colt nodded to him. Although you’d never guess by looking, Colt played the guitar like a pro and the bass player and drummer kept the back beat going in sync.

Music was undoubtedly Jag’s passion, his inner peace, his first love. Why had he let his father turn him away from it?

Intriguing, Jan, but I’d like to add my review Readers’ Favorite review here. Ghostly Interference is so different from your other books.

Within Ghostly Interference lies a powerful action-packed story of two vastly different worlds that collide, literally. It opens with Jag Peters driving his car with his mind on work and almost knocking Rena Jett off her motorbike. Jag comes from a comfortable, privileged, background, and his driving force is to protect his karma. Rena is fiercely independent. Her only companions – nobody is her friend – are bikers. Rena herself rides a candy apple red Harley. Does she mean to be noticed? How could a girl who scrapes a living working in a diner afford a Harley? What are the secrets of her past? With the paranormal, Jan Sikes has taken Ghostly Interference: Book 1 of the White Rune Series a step beyond interesting to utterly captivating.

Jag Peters is an only son from a wealthy family. He is close to his widowed mother, a yoga teacher, and she is the one who takes him seriously when he describes his encounter with a gun-toting soldier in full combat camouflage gear. Jag does not believe in ghosts, but this one has unfinished business, and he’s determined to recruit Jag. Rena Jett, alone since her brother, Sam, was killed in Afghanistan, trusts nobody. She wears Sam’s dog tags and, eventually, a soldier friend brings her Sam’s last letter, and the envelope contains a stone. “The symbol on this white rune is called Wunjo and is the “happily-ever-after” symbol.” Is a happy ending possible for two people poles apart? Ghostly Interference by Jan Sikes holds the answer, but from start to finish it’s an electrifying ride.

Purchase links, and ways of contacting Jan, are at the end of this post, and “music lover” has been shown. So, that leaves “jail-bird’s wife”! I’ve found a picture, but I’ll let Jan tell you more about this man who suffered so much for “doing the right thing”, and played and sang like an angel. Jan?

I first met Rick Sikes in 1970 in Abilene, Texas. He was the bandleader of a highly popular country band. I was fascinated. We fell deeply in love. Oh, how I treasured being a part of that world. He had a song that went to Number One in 1964 called “Den of Sin.” It is a reverse love song, as he used to say.   https://youtu.be/ZOVvhbF7WIs

Rick passed away in 2009, taking with him a piece of my heart. Afterward, I was compelled to tell his story and, along with it, mine. It took four books to cover the entire story from beginning to end, but each book revolves and evolves around a passion and love for music. If true love stories that include music interest you, I’d love for you to check out these books on my Amazon Author page.  https://www.amazon.com/Jan-Sikes/e/B00CS9K8DK

Here is my review of Flowers and Stone

Driven from home by strict no-dating rules, naïve Darlina gets a job dancing in a club where she falls in love with the lead singer of a rock group. Luke Stone is older, separated from his wife but tied down by his love for his children, and into kinky sex, drink, and drugs. Jan Sikes shows a deeply moving, passionate and explicit, love affair, which keeps you wondering if Luke will survive, or if he does, drag Darlina with him down the slippery slope to addiction and death.

And the rest of the books are as powerful! The Convict and the Rose has an unbroken record of five-star reviews.

Now, folks, before you scroll down to all Jan’s links… or start filling your Kindle… please add your comments and questions. Jan will be popping in and out all day, and there must be something about this captivating lady I haven’t told you, or perhaps you’d like to know more about runes and karma???

Love sizzles with passion when two worlds collide, but can it survive? Michael’s road from poverty to riches is rough: charisma and talent versus pride. Elspeth, daughter of a wealthy Scottish laird, inherits Margaret Tudor’s diary. It contains the command to “find love where ye may”, and that she must pass the book to a daughter conceived in love. Elspeth is determined to see Michael succeed, but is the promise she makes to him too high a price to pay?

Eighteen years later, the relationship is challenged by their adult daughter. Lisette adores the Diamond Superstar and sees the royal command as permission to set a trap for Michael and indulge her forbidden love. One night of passion results in pregnancy, and the paparazzi are already suspicious of the father and daughter who play lovers onstage. Margaret Tudor succeeded in hiding the birth of an illegitimate baby from a king in the sixteenth century, but can Elspeth hide the next royal heiress from modern bureaucracy? Does she love Michael and Lisette enough to forgive them and try?

Broadway singer and actress, Lisette Marsh, flees to Paris and joins her father, The Diamond Superstar, for a European concert tour. Michael discovers she is being blackmailed into perverted sex with threats to reveal that she had his baby eighteen years before. He gambles his career, his marriage, and his liberty, to discredit the paparazzi-fuelled scandal.

Their lovechild, Harriet, discovers the truth about her about her parentage and vanishes. The man behind the blackmail sends ransom demands, so did Harriet leave her London home of her own freewill or was she kidnapped? “$6,000,000 or you get her body, darling.” Can Michael’s audacious plan to defeat the blackmailer work, or must Lisette return to the man she fears to save the whole family from imprisonment and financial ruin?

“Screams cut the clear air.” The Diamond Superstar, Michael Marsh, turns from signing autographs to see his beloved wife, Elspeth, lying dead on the snow: a skier in black is spotted speeding away towards the Matterhorn. Lisette leaves her husband, Brian, and rushes to her grieving father’s side, rekindling media suspicions of an incestuous relationship.

Jealous, and driven by guilty secrets of his own, Brian abandons Lisette, who is pregnant with his son. For the sake of Elspeth’s youngest daughter, Greta, he is determined to find the killer and mete out justice. The Swiss police ask the London force for help and the detective chief inspector assigned to the case is hostile, influenced by paparazzi stories that Lisette, Michael, or both, wanted Elspeth dead.

Who stabbed the woman everybody loved, and why? How can twins, secret lovers Harriet and Kit, help Greta, and will the way they choose bring the showbiz family empire crashing to the ground?

Can rejected, deserted, Lisette keep her solemn promise to Elspeth to pass on Margaret Tudor’s Book of Hours with its Royal Command, “find love where ye may” to a daughter conceived in love?

Evie, a career detective, deals with the seedy side of life – kidnap, murder, and infiltrating sex-trafficking rings, but can she resist an enticing billionaire superstar thirty-one years her senior? Michael’s proposal – “I’m no innocent, no stranger to sin. Take me as I am or not at all.”

Maternal instincts nil, Evie finds herself the protective, loving, stepmother of Greta, Michael’s jealous, rebellious, teenage daughter, but she reckons without her own mother being in cahoots with The Spy. He, or she, is a journalist prepared to tell lies, bribe “witnesses”, and stalk all the members of her new family to reveal their scandalous secrets.

Michael Marsh escaped backstreet poverty and has enjoyed over forty years of showbiz success, but still his life is dogged by The Spy, a faceless journalist intent on bringing down the Diamond Superstar and seeing him jailed. Michael has been accused of incest with his eldest daughter, Lisette, and murdering his first wife, Elspeth. Now, his youngest daughter, Greta, is in trouble, again, and Michael’s second wife, Evie, begins to doubt him… Can the Marsh women withstand yet more scandal and find everlasting love?

Christmas 2020 is what we make it.

It’s been a challenging year for us all, whether we lost family or close friends in the pandemic or suffered the loneliness of isolation, and Christmas has been spoiled for so many… or has it?

We Are Never Alone With God

Not everyone is a believer, and if you are, there are many paths to Him, so I’ve chosen an image that made me chuckle.

With the Internet, none of us need be alone, even when friends can’t visit – this dratted bug doesn’t wait for an invitation! Count up and you’ll almost certainly realise you have “met” more people all over the world through cyberspace than you could travelling for a lifetime. Christmas Day is the day to get in touch. A message on any platform, a phone call if you have the number… you can give comfort and love, and “in giving we receive”. So…

 

Meet Gwendolyn, my talented friend from the Mid-West of the USA.

Please welcome Gwen M. Plano who has stopped by on her blog tour to meet you. The special occasion is the launch of her intriguing new release, The Culmination, a new beginning.

Thank you so much for inviting me to your blog, Sarah.

It’s my pleasure, Gwen. How are things with you this morning?

I’m super excited to see The Culmination published on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. To celebrate, the Kindle edition is on sale at 99¢ through December.

I guess UK fans – existing and new – will be delighted too. It’s showing as 77p here. I’ve grabbed my copy, and I have a reason that my readers will recognise!  Go ahead, Gwen.

I never expected to write this book, but in some ways, I had no choice. The characters crowded into my office and insisted that I listen to them. In a very real way, they wrote the book. I simply tapped the keys.

Folks, the lady uses an office! I never have dusted mine, but characters being bossy is so familiar. What’s it all about?

The Culmination can best be described as a political/military thriller. It tackles difficult topics such as denuclearization, the power struggles over oil in the Middle East, as well as the ever-present danger of war. Readers will find themselves sitting with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, walking in the historic Red Square, and laughing with children in an orphanage in Turkey. They will glimpse the horror of war and watch the give and take of a negotiated peace. Readers will also meet the two Heads of State who fall in love and subsequently commit themselves to creating a world in which all are family.

What an utterly fascinating scenario. Definitely the place to quote from an Amazon review – “The scope of the plot is vast. The reader moves from what appears to be simple situations of trouble to complex machinations that could lead to World War Three. The story involves multiple nations and heads of state. There are some surprising moments, as well as a tender love story.” – and that is from just one of some fab 5-star reviews. Now, I gather this standalone novel is the third in a series?

Yes, this is my description, Sarah. 

The Culmination, a new beginning is the third book in The Contract thriller series. After an assassination attempt on an Air Force base in northern California, tensions mount. Heads of state meet to craft a denuclearization agreement. The meetings between these nuclear powers take a murderous turn. A nefarious conspiracy re-emerges and leads the characters into the heart of the Middle East, where they encounter the unexpected and find a reason for hope.

I’m looking forward even more to reading it now, and you’re letting us have a peep.

Margaret Adler, the Vice President of the United States, has flown to Moscow at the request of Russia’s President. He has asked her to address the Russian people about the Disarmament Treaty. She stands on a platform overlooking the Red Square and the crowd that fills it. In this excerpt, she acknowledges those who have served or are currently serving in the military.

 “Thank you all for your service. You know the worst and the best of life. You know what it is to risk everything for your country, your family, and your principles. It is possible we—you and I—supported opposing sides. We may have fought valiantly for different ideals. I want you to know that I respect your fearlessness and courage. We are soldiers. We have done what we were told to do faithfully. Thank you for your service.” She begins to clap, and the assembly joins her.

Margaret waits for people to resettle. “Almost two decades ago, I served in the United States Army in Afghanistan. I suspect that many of you also served in that country in the 1980s.” She looks around the audience. Some of the men nod.

“Afghanistan was my first and last deployment.” Margaret pauses and removes her four-button cardigan to reveal her arm prosthesis. A gasp carries across the expanse.

“I lost my arm to a mortar attack and was near death when a Russian soldier on diplomatic business got caught in the same battle. It wasn’t his battle to fight. It was mine. America was at war with Afghanistan because of the 9/11 attacks on the United States. This Russian soldier and his men tried to get out of harm’s way, but there was no safe direction to turn. As he walked through the destruction, he heard my moans. The last thing I remember was his demand to his men, ‘Pomoch’ yey!’ ‘Help her!’

“His men put a tourniquet on my arm and went on their way. This one action saved my life. Yesterday, I met this soldier once again.” She turns, looks at the President’s son, Ivan, and asks that he join her. As he walks to the stand, she extends her hand to him, and he grasps hers firmly. The people clap and stand. Adler returns to the microphone, and the people quiet. She puts her cardigan on and says, “We Americans and Russians have known much pain over the centuries. We take care about who we trust for good reason. We’ve lost loved ones, we’ve lost properties, and we’ve lost hope. Sometimes the reasons for our fighting has not been clear, but the fighting has been gruesome, nonetheless.

“As time passed, our two countries became experts at destruction. We know how to inflict damage better than anyone. Our nuclear weapons are so powerful that they can destroy ALL life. One aberrant warhead, and the world we consider our home will no longer exist.

“The treaty we have signed directs us to progressively reduce our nuclear stockpiles. Your President and I have decided that our two countries will cut our holdings in half over the next two years. Even with this notable reduction, we can still destroy the planet. We will monitor our progress continually, and within the next two years, we will meet again to, hopefully, cut the stockpile in half once more.

“We are not naive. Much can change in two years, including our leadership. To ensure that we keep our promises, we will use drone surveillance and arrange for multiple investigative visits each year.

“Trust does not happen overnight. It takes time for confidence to emerge, and that is a burden that any leadership must bear. We are creating a new frontier—one that we travel together. We will not stockpile more weapons. Rather, we will learn to depend upon each other through trade and negotiations. We can do this. We, you and I, can create a future for our children founded on mutual understanding—on peace.”

World Peace, mankind’s eternal hope. While we ponder on that, I have a personal question for you, Gwen, and it will only surprise new visitors. What sort of music do you like, and who are your favourite singers and groups?

Music…gosh, Sarah, I love everything from Classical to Country. But, there are a few artists who pull at my heartstrings. Leonard Cohen is high on that list. As for a group, I like the Eagles. 

Interesting, but there’s a lot more to find out about Gwen – you’ll find links at the bottom – but before you rush off, please leave your comments and questions. Gwen will be popping in and out today, ready to tell you anything I’ve forgotten to ask or include. There are so many aspects of her work and her life I haven’t dipped into, including that she co-authored a book with best-selling author, John Howell.
