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???

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.

Handsome Is As Handsome Does, or does he???

Today, I’d like to welcome a very special guest, Theresa Jacobs, but BEWARE! She’s brought someone with her.

HI, Sarah, and hopefully many readers, thank you for allowing me to be here today. Let’s get right down to the good stuff –  a serial killer called Handsome.

See what I mean? The instant Theresa gets a foot in the door, HE is here!

I began writing horror/sci-fi, or speculative fiction as it’s called with mixed genres’ and had no intention of going away from that path. Until one scorcher of a summer’s day, our air conditioning broke, and I know you’re asking, what’s that got to do with writing? Oddly enough the repair person was just gabbing away about the shutters on my windows and happened to say “Did you know if someone has a star in their window it means they’re swingers.” Okay, so that was weird.

True, but workman do say odd things. I wonder if they save them up for ladies alone in the house. What did you say, Theresa?

“That’s a great way to have a stranger arrive at your door under the guise of ‘interested’ and kill you!”

Oh, glory!  Did the guy finish fixing the aircon?

AND, Bob’s your uncle, the new Serial Killer idea was born.

She’s not telling about the aircon… and it isn’t all she’s refusing to say. Handsome seems to be the boss around here.

However I did a lot of research and it’s not a star in the window that lets people know your inclinations, but something else – I can’t tell you what though. Grab Handsome to find out.

I guess we’d be safer with Handsome firmly under Kindle arrest. Everybody ready? 

To Amazon, Quickly!

Got him? Good. I feel much safer. Now, Theresa, I hope we’re not the only ones chasing your serial killer?

No, you’re all quite safe… I think… Marcy Gagon is on the case.

So, what did you do next? 

Once I finished writing about this new detective, Marcy Gagon, I decided to make her into a series because I enjoyed writing her. And as it turns out all my readers so far enjoy her and want more too. I do have too many ideas though and I paused book two, to write a children’s story, which is a month in and halfway finished. Plus I still plan on writing horror, as it’s my all time favorite.

I had noticed horror. In case any of our visitors don’t consider a serial killer on the loose scary enough, I checked one out.

Seventeen-year-old Josephine is used to new towns, the same bullies, and being a loner.
Until they move to Lilith Falls, where her world gets turned upside-down. Here she suspects a creature that can not possibly exist, just might.

With nothing to lose, she begins her search. Along the way, she finds a few unexpected and unusual friendships. And for the first time in her young life; falls in love. But it’s a love that is not only utterly wrong, it also cannot be returned.

Will Josephine finally be happy and find a place to call home? Or will the mysteries of Lilith Falls destroy her and leave her broken?

AMAZON

What I like most about the other genres is that I can make everything up, the towns, the scenery, how the story will play out. Whereas with crime books I am using Toronto, so streets and places need to be accurate and study the proper tools, forensics, and so on. It’s much harder, but the outcome is extremely satisfying.

I’m fighting the same battle, Theresa. Actually, my characters claim to have written all my romantic suspense novels, and I expect they’re right. Crime thrillers take a lot more work!

Now, my dear friend from Ontario, when you’re not writing or admiring Niagara Falls, how do spend your time?

I still work a forty-hour a week job and spend time with my husband, walk the dog, cook most of the time (my choice because he will cook too, I’m just a major foodie) and binge-watch shows. It’s too bad we need to sleep!

Err… yes. I think we’d all agree there aren’t enough hours in the day. Well, to quote from Mamma Mia, “do you want SOME MORE, folks? If you do, get those questions coming in. Theresa will be popping in and out all day.

Tempted?    Amazon Pre-Order   At least you can’t rush off and start reading before we’ve finished our chat, and Harmony will be popping in now and then all day to respond to comments and answer your questions.

Harmony, why did you wait until you reached 40 before you published your first book?

 

Ever since I can remember, I’ve enjoyed making stuff up. As soon as I learnt how to write, I put felt tip or crayon (and, later, a pen) to paper and made up stories. I loved writing and reading and wanted nothing more than to be an author when I got all growed-up.         

I’m with you there!

 The likes of Black Beauty, Narnia, and the Famous Five fuelled my youthful imagination. And later in life, I devoured books by Anne McCAffrey, Terry Pratchett, Stephen King, and the likes. Perhaps in this diversity of reading material, you can see the origins of my eclectic approach to writing?     

Indeed, I can.

Alas, life had other ideas. Having to earn a living and find a home took over idle fantasy. Mostly, I didn’t have the confidence. Too many putdowns and too much ridicule from family soon killed my early dreams. However, some tiny part of that little girl never gave up.   

And little girls “get all growed-up”.

 The spark grew –thirteen years in a Zen Buddhist Temple, and a lot of hard work, produced a new person—one with the confidence and drive to realise her dreams at long last. So, the writer in me was born in 2013 … just a ‘few’ years older than the gal herself … Honest! 

I believe you, thousands wouldn’t. 

The moral of the story? … Just because people tell you something, doesn’t mean it’s true. Be careful which voices you listen to. 

Now, it’s things that go bump in the night, and I bet it’s bedsprings!

Now, the question I really want to ask, especially as you’re my guest and much too polite not to answer. What prompted you to write the original Interludes?

Already, I’d published a traditional fantasy fiction book, a supernatural thriller, a book on how to self-edit, and a coming of age about a teen’s recovery from child abuse. What I hadn’t yet tried to write was romance in any form. Throughout my writing career, I’ve wanted to stretch my boundaries and challenge myself. I also hadn’t yet produced a full book of short fiction. So the idea behind Interludes, which Interludes 2 mirrors, brought changes for me in so many ways.

 And just to add to the difficulty (and fun!), I also decided to set a word target for each story. I have to say that it was easier in the writing to stick to the word limits than it was in the editing stages.

Here’s where I confess that writing clean romance soon grew boring for me. And so the book of erotic romance shorts was born. With my history of more than a decade training in a Zen temple, the prospect of publishing anything ‘naughty’ felt somewhat daunting. But by that point in my life, I had promised myself never to hide away again. 

So, we have Interludes & Interludes 2.

Romance or erotica or whatever, I always try to bring life to my fiction, and these collections of short stories offer so much more than the traditional romantic curve. It’s my sincere hope that my readers enjoy the books even more than I enjoyed writing them.

Oh heck! Harmony. Dare I ask what next?

I’m in the middle of a trilogy called The Colony that’s all about venturing into and conquering unsettled space. As well as dealing with intrigue and betrayal, you find yourself faced with the dire question: What happens when you find you’re not alone?

As well as the trilogy, I also have ideas outlined for an Interludes 3. So, watch this space!

I knew it! The girl’s hooked. She’ll be back to tell us all about it – if you subscribe to my newsletter you’ll get advance warning – link from the top of the page, but don’t go yet! The way Harmony wrote the stories is fascinating. Go ahead, Harmony.

For each story, I used prompt cards from a great creative tool called Storymatic.  Here’s what the set gave me to work with:

  1. a) deaf person b) recluse … c) person in love … conflict = class reunion
  2. A and B relate to the main character. C relates to the secondary character. And the final prompt gives us the conflict.
  3. From the above set of prompts, I came up with REUNION—A contemporary romance in 9000 words.
  4. A school reunion looms. Not wanting to arrive sad and single, Molly talks her long-time friend Paul into going with her. While the music plays, the sparks fly.

Harmony is letting us have a peep!

Molly shoved open the door and strode into the room. She saw Paul bent over the sink, splashing water on his face. With her body blocking the doorway, she crossed her arms and glared at him. Then she mouthed, carefully and exaggeratedly, ‘How dare you walk out on me.’

Guilt darkened his eyes and expression. Then he shrugged.

Molly stared.

The idiot had just shrugged at her.

Had sex then shrugged her off.

No. Just … no.

Molly ran at him and shoved him back against the sink. His head hit the mirror, and he brought his hands up in surprise. He held her at arm’s length, and her momentum died. She held his gaze, and then wriggled out of his grip. He let her go. ‘What just happened?’ she signed.

Paul looked wretched. ‘I’m sorry.’

Molly heaved in a huge breath and let it go on a long sigh. ‘What for, exactly?’

‘I shouldn’t have done that.’

She laughed, a bitter and sarcastic bark of sound. ‘Last time I checked, it takes two to tango.’

Paul stared. Blinked.

Molly said, ‘Do you see me complaining?’

A spark of amusement brightened his whole being. ‘Well, you don’t look happy.’

She rolled her eyes and readied an angry retort. Then the irony hit her, and she laughed too—full of merriment this time. ‘Not because you just f****d me.’

Paul watched her. She rolled her eyes. ‘You just left me lying there. How could you?’

Understanding dawned. How thick could he be? A sheepish expression settled on his features. ‘Um, yeah. Sorry. I panicked.’

Molly tried for humour, but it proved difficult. ‘Was I that bad?’

I’m going to sneak something in here – please don’t buy it – well. obviously buy it, but don’t start reading before you’ve added your comment or asked your question, or forget to pop back and read what Harmony has to say! Manners maketh the man, remember, and that includes ladies now we’re all equal.
