Author TL Bliss is keeping the faith


Author TL Bliss has agreed to meet with us today and talk about her new online publication, KTF Press.
Congratulations on the publication of your new magazine, KTF Press. If you don't mind my asking, what does KTF stand for?
KTF stands for Keeping the Faith. We all have something to which we are adamant about keeping true. I just happen to be true to Indie authors, writers, artists, and other beginners who just need someone to give them a break or a helping hand.
What kind of readership are you trying to reach?
We are looking for readers of all genres and in all regions. Our subscriptions will be available for anyone anywhere. We want to help new writers begin and seasoned writers to be seen.
I see you are offering opportunities for new writers to get their voices heard. How are you planning on accomplishing that? What kind of opportunities are you offering?
We are providing space to them in our magazine so readers can have the opportunity to see what the new writer has to offer. They can send us their material and build their brand and reader base right from the start. They will be exposed to readers from all over the world. We are offering space for them to submit material in return for their submission, to help get them get started and hopefully continue writing for us and their readers.
What is your background in publishing?
I have been writing for over 30 years, and have self-published my own books. I have been formatting ebooks, editing, proofreading, and publishing paperbacks for Indie authors for several years now. I am experienced with locating the resources needed for the new author who is just starting, teaching them the ropes, and seasoned authors who need a helping hand.
I understand that you are also an author. Can you tell my readers something about your work.
I write about whatever touches my heart. I have books ranging from inspiration/faith-based, childrens’ books, self-help/how-to, to my newest collaborative works with Author Kisha Rivera that are faith-based. Visit www.tlbliss.com for more information and links to purchase other stories written by Author TL Bliss.

Promotional Event | **FREE** Stepping Off A Cliff by Doug Dillon @Doug__Dillon

Title:  Stepping Off A Cliff
Author:  Doug Dillon
The St. Augustine Trilogy: Book II
Length:  321 Pages
Genre: YA Paranormal
Released:  Nov. 29, 2013


“Mr. Lobo, sir.” Carla interrupted him, with just a hint of sarcasm. “Could you please cut the meteorology report and one of you two tell me about your little walk?” She fired a quick glance at me and went back to eyeballing Lobo.

I loved it how she emphasized the word Mr., just the way Lobo had addressed me when I first met him—Mr. Golden.

His eyes glittering, Lobo crammed half a pizza slice into his mouth instead of responding immediately. Chewing slowly, just to teach her a lesson, I was sure, his gaze never wavered even when he grabbed his bottle of beer and washed down that last bit of food.

Arms crossed in front of her, Carla stared back at him with arched eyebrows, waiting for her answer.

“Patience, young lady, patience,” Lobo growled as he wiped his lips with a napkin. At the words, “young lady,” Carla’s jaw muscles tightened and she fixed him with a smoldering stare of her own. She hates it when adults call her that.

“I’ll tell you,” I said, also getting tired of Lobo’s delaying, lesson-teaching tactics. So for the next fifteen or twenty minutes as we continued to eat, and with Lobo eventually helping, I told her about the walk he and I had taken. So between the two of us, she got it all—Lobo’s statement about Mom’s visit as a warning, his sense of a coming and possibly dangerous event, the visit to my old house, the dragonflies up on San Marco and lastly, my experience with Frozen Time.

As we finished, she looked at me in disbelief, her eyes wide. “Frozen Time? It was you who did that? On the battlefield back in December?” Her expression seemed to say, “My, my, look at you.”

“Jeff’s ability to freeze time and your ability to manipulate matter and energy,” Lobo told Carla, “might well be needed if indeed this warning by Jeff’s mother proves valid.”

“Lobo,” Carla said. “You keep talking about this warning from Jeff’s mom combined with your own perceptions about an event that could occur, but you won’t tell us what you know. Come on! The more we understand, the better prepared we’ll be.”

You go, girl! She was so on target.

About the Author
A former award-winning educator, Doug writes about things paranormal and historical. His interest in the paranormal comes from personal experiences as detailed in the nonfiction adult book he and wife wrote titled, AN EXPLOSION OF BEING: AN AMERICAN FAMILY'S JOURNEY INTO THE PSYCHIC. Out of those events and extensive historical research, he created SLIDING BENEATH THE SURFACE for young adults, Book I of the St. Augustine Trilogy. Doug set his trilogy in the oldest and most haunted city in the United States, St. Augustine, Florida not only for those reasons, but also because it's his favorite place to visit. Books II and III of the trilogy are on the way.

Cover Reveal | The Davidson Case: Book 3 by Julie C. Gilbert @AuthorGilbert

The Davidson Case
Heartfelt Cases: Book 3
Author: Julie C. Gilbert
Genre: Christian Mystery
Release Date: May 2014
Presented by: As You Wish Tours


Somebody wants her sister dead …

FBI Special Agent Ann Duncan knows how to face down danger, but once again, she’s not the target. Her baby sister, Joy Davidson, has stumbled upon a conspiracy and made some powerful enemies.

Luck and God’s grace help Ann save her sister the first time, but she knows the bad guys will try again. With Patrick on a university tour and perhaps the most important case of her career weighing upon her mind, Ann must find the strength, wisdom, and heart to find out who wants her sister dead, what Joy discovered, and how to stop the conspirators. Ann instinctively knows that if she fails the Davidson case will only be the first of many tragedies.

About the Author
Julie mainly confines her writing to three genres: Christian inspirational, YA real-world science fiction, and normal science fiction. 

She likes teaching, writing, reading, sleeping, doing puzzles, and hanging out with friends. (Not necessarily in that order)

Writing has made her super picky about the things she reads but normally, her reading list includes something that fits under the thriller, mystery, science fiction, or fantasy.

Occasionally, she attempts short poetry. The poems turn into songs, which she sings with abandon when nobody's looking.
