He Said, She Said – Fictional Friends: Will The Real Valentino Please Stand Up? Day 5

Valent's-HMcQueenValent is an archer for Clan McLeod, who’s grown up as an orphan, raised by an old man in a cottage in the forest. He’s a little stuffy if you asked me so I sent a proxy to translate questions for me. I am a little forward with blue hair, tattoos, sexual revolution–yeah I’m still going through that–I knew none of that would work with Valent who is from Medieval times. The only thing he and I have in common is that we both grew up in a place where it’s okay to pop a squat wherever you need to to relieve yourself; I’m real backwoods. I grew up rural–cray cray rural. Squeal like a pig!Blog-Separater-Rawr Continue Reading


He Said, She Said – Fictional Friends: Will The Real Valentino Please Stand Up? Day 4


Vin Jackson is a man of few words, of course it doesn’t take a lot of words to get a good job done well and this job only had 14 Valentine Questions to whet your whistle. This is that sexy, slightly inaccessible guy who is a rock when you need him but rough around the edges. He’s hard to read and doesn’t give away much so don’t think this questionnaire is going to give you much insight so sorry babes, you’re going to have to read Undercovers to get a pulse on him. FBI Agents don’t go down easy, I did my best. Blog-Separater-Rawr Continue Reading


He Said, She Said – Fictional Friends: Will The Real Valentino Please Stand Up? Day 3

Tino's-OGaines-BioThis is one Tino that has me completely intrigued. Excuse me, Mr. Boehner, but I might find myself all over your story, and I don’t have the time for reading right now so you are going to have arrange a jointly satisfying quickie with me, wiseguy.  This happens when I get sassy mouth from devil-may-care characters who think they can put their lips where their good lovin’s is. Men! I tell you; you can’t shame them, they just try harder. Please, Valentino, be charming only during times that are economically convenient for me in the future.

Girls, this one is going to be trouble.

Weekly Indie Word Slinger – Elizabeth Kelly


As anyone who might be following this Word Slinger Project might have taken note I have had to take a short break while I suffered a never ending bout of the flu. The bug pretty well took my hiney down. Luckily, both Elizabeth and follow Slinger, Khalid Muhammad stuck with me while their reviews, interviews and profiles literally hung in virtual cyberspace. Thanks oodles Elizabeth for being a complete trooper through my weakened state… I was just becoming a lycan. =)

I have never had too many Jager bombs to the point where I became so inebriated that I became completely blinded by drink and cried for my mom. That never happened to me… there are no pics to prove such a thing ever occurred.

Weekly Indie Word Slinger Project 2014


As a little girl I never had any other dreams other than to one day be an author. Reading was something I began doing fairly young and I wrote little stories that popped up here and there in grade school. There was a small story about a duck that I my mom kept from a Spring Story Collection in third grade that might have been inspired but sadly lacked coherence. Let’s say I won’t be publishing it anywhere.

I came up with the Weekly Indie Word Slinger Project after doing a good deal of research for publishing my own novels. The amount of work involved sounded daunting, but when I looked at the forum discussions of people who had literary agents shopping the big six and those who were dealing with marketing people it left a terrible taste in my mouth. It didn’t sit well with me that someone could tell me to change my story to make it more palatable. It might make me sound narcissistic or inflexible but I write my stories the way I want them read. I don’t want someone telling me to change them to suit them. Not to mention that I don’t necessarily write with the intention to rake in the bottlecaps, I do it because I love it. I dream in full plots and I wake up writing down characters names and snippets of dialogue and settings. I feel passionate about it. It’s what I love. I don’t want someone telling me how they want me to write.

Weekly Indie Word Slinger – Gale Martin

Gale head shot second fave-1I’m beyond amazed by the response I’ve had to the Weekly Indie Word Slinger posting. Thank you all for your interest and I am doing my best to figure out the best way to provide the most exposure and attention I can for you and your books.

My Word Slinger for this week hails from my neck of the woods, or I guess I can say my home neck of the Penn’s Woods. Author of Don Juan in Hankey, Pa, Grace Unexpected and upcoming Who Killed ‘Tom Jones’?, Gale Martin has shown infinite patience while I was flu-ridden and gave me a lot of leeway when I was fearful that I might be very late getting these Weekly Indie Word Slingers out. Thanks, Gale!
