Happy Halloween – It’s Steamy!

If you are just joining us, we started our Blog Tour here:

http://booknibbles.com/bloghop/

So last year I went with a Werewolves vs. Vampires theme.  It remains a great debate with no clear winner. This year – Steampunk !

I’m not sure if Steampunk is for everyone but as of late, it has really captured my writer’s imagination.  I find the photography stimulating in it’s beauty, darkness and cold metals with luxurious fabrics.  It just sounds SEXY. 

So are you a Steampunk fan or are you wondering what all the hype is about?  Comment below for a chance to win my EPPIE Finalist E-Book, “Sexing up the Spy”.

AuThursday – Cammie Eicher

Please welcome fellow Resplendence Author Cammie Eicher. Tell us Cammie, how long have you been writing?

All my life! My first writing award was for an essay in fourth grade and that’s when I made up my mind to be a writer. I’ve been lucky enough to make my living in journalism since college, and I’ve been writing fiction for about 10 years.

Q: To date which of your books was the hardest to write and why?

My upcoming “Dead Man Stalking” because it’s first-person and funny (I hope!) I write a weekly newspaper column that is also first-person and humorous, and sometimes I forget that the heroine was making the observations in my novel, not me!



Q:  What is your writing process? Do you outline, fly by the seat of your pants or a combination of both?

I use a combination of both. In my Shadow Ancient series of vampire romantic suspense, I created the mythology, then wrote the stories. That means there are rules to be followed within their society, and I have to adhere to them. I start with the characters, throw them into a situation and basically get out of their way and let them go.

 Q:  Do you use mood music, candles, no noise, when you write?

I used to have a no-noise rule, until I got new neighbors with a big stereo who favor rap. Of course, all I get at my computer is the thump-thump-thump of the bass, so I put a relaxing CD of favorite classical music on to cover it up. And if I’m writing something tender, I’ll light my favorite rose-scented candle.

 Q:  What do you think is the biggest misconception about e-publishing?

That these books aren’t quite “as good” as the ones from the big New York houses because they’re not printed on paper! I tell people they’re the place to go for books that go beyond boundaries and mix genres, plus darn good writing.

Q:  How did you come up with your titles?

They kinda come to me when I start the book! I guess my subconscious mulls it around a while and decides to hand me a title along with the plot and characters.

Q:  What books have most influenced your life most?

One book I’ve always loved is “Hannah Fowler,” by Janice Holt Giles, a Kentuckian who wrote stories stemming from Kentucky history. I discovered it in high school and have read it several times since. I also adore everything by Dean Koontz and grew up on a steady diet of non-fiction paranormal stuff, like Fate magazine. I blame my parents for turning me into a paranormal romance writer!

Q:  What is on tap for the rest of 2010?

In mid-June, “Hell’s Belle,” the second book of the Shadow Ancients comes out with a real kick-ass human heroine and the third book, “Devil’s Ball,” debuts in October, just in time for Halloween, with a vampire hero and heroine. In August, “Dead Man Stalking” will be released, all about a girl, her inherited dog and the ghost of her dead boyfriend — and a murder and brand-new love.

 Q:  Where can readers find you on the World Wide Web?
