New Release & Now in Paperback “Murder Among The Tombstones”

Lyon Media and Raven South Publishing Announces a New Mystery Suspense Novel Series of Kim Carter…

Murder Among The Tombstones (Book 2 – A Clara and Iris Mystery) by Authoress, Kim Carter

A Clara and Iris Mystery

When Atlanta homicide detectives are called in to investigate the murder of a nineteen-year-old girl found dumped in historic Oakland Cemetery, they immediately begin working the case. But with no leads to follow, and their case log growing larger by the day, the murder quickly grows cold.

Desperate to keep the investigation of her deceased sister going, Ginger Baines hires two novice sleuths to solve the case. Widowed, well into their seventies, and new to the world of private investigating, Clara Samples and Iris Hadley aren’t your average private eyes.
When a second body is found in a neighboring cemetery, the plot thickens. With two bodies wrapped, almost lovingly, in a soft blanket before being discarded in a cemetery, could a serial killer be on the loose?

Joined by their young apprentice Quita, Clara and Iris are determined to stop at nothing to find the killer before they can strike again. But, will their bodies be the next ones discovered among the tombstones? Available on Amazon

 

“She’s done it again!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Jill Lucas

Once again, Kim wove a tale that kept me guessing to the very end. Thought I knew who the murderer was but I wasn’t even close. Loved getting reacquainted with Clara and Iris. Remember Det. Pitts? He’s back, too. Get this book….it’s a great read.

A Cozy Author Interview With Kim Carter The Prolific Writer of The Clara & Iris Mystery Series. Book 1 & 2 Now Released on Amazon…

Hello and Welcome Readers, Visitors, and Friends!

About Kim Carter:

“I’ve been writing mysteries since 1999 when I became ill and housebound for a couple of years. I always loved reading and figured I’d try my hand at writing. Those novels remained on my computer for years before friends encouraged me to put them in print. It’s been quite the ride! I live in Atlanta, Ga with my husband and three retired Greyhounds.

I have three grown children, no not the Greyhounds, none of which have given me any grandchildren yet. Just adding that, should they read this and need reminding. LOL…. I love sharing my novels with readers and enjoy attending book clubs that choose my novels. It is such a humbling experience to know that someone picked your book to read when there are so many wonderful authors to choose from!”

What inspires you to write?
I’m inspired by beautiful and sometimes haunting places.

Tell us about your writing process.
I have the strangest writing process. My books always begin with inspiration from the location where the novel will be set. I initially have a few characters in mind, but they quickly take on a mind of their own, and walk all over me! I never have an outline or ending in mind. I allow the characters to do all the work. As the characters become more complex, I write down details about them on wipe off boards that cover every wall in my office, along with any chronological dates that I may need to refer back to as the book progresses. I also post enlarged photos that will help with detail as I write. I also have a lot of inspirational quotes tacked up everywhere. My office is a disaster, but it works for me. My husband, however, is mortified, and quickly shuts the door every time company arrives.

For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I do listen to my characters. Many times I have had all intentions of a character being a certain way, either a villain, or a person with upstanding character, but that often goes out the window as they show their true colors. I allow them to be who they want to be. No, I’m not as big of a nut as I sound… LOL…I do know that they don’t ACTUALLY exist, but I respect them just the same. I cry with them, I laugh with them, and I grieve with them at the end of the book when we must say our goodbyes. It is a very hard day for me when I must wipe off the boards and put them away, only to begin anew.

What advice would you give other writers?
Don’t rush your writing…. I don’t have set times to write or a quota for the day. I have to be in the right mind set to make it work. I suppose we are all different. And most importantly, NEVER write in uncomfortable clothes. Pajamas work best….. who cares what the UPS or Postman thinks if you go to the door in the afternoon still in your pj’s???

How did you decide how to publish your books?
I have done both self-publishing and gone with a publisher. Both have their pros and cons. Do your research and only sign with someone after you have checked references and get a good ‘gut’ feeling!

photo shoot 3

What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I can’t begin to predict the future of publishing, and e-books are wonderful things, I just keep my fingers crossed that actual, physical books don’t go by the wayside. By far, they are my preference. #oldschoolandproudofit I put old school and a hashtag together. My grown children will be mortified! Ha!

What do you use?: Professional Editor, Professional Cover Designer

What genres do you write?: Mystery/Suspense Thrillers.

What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Paperback

Meet Author, Johnnie Calloway and His New Book;”Dragons to Butterflies: The Metamorphosis of a Man” This Month’s Book Pick!

“A journey of tragedy to triumph, from the broken heart of an abused child to the beautiful soul of a man…”

A true-to-life story by Johnnie Calloway .  .  .  .

Publisher: Balboa Press (April 3, 2016) ~ Author, Johnnie Calloway.

About “Dragons to Butterflies”

Johnnie Calloway is a gifted storyteller and has written a superb personal account of his harrowing childhood and adult life. Although he retells his experiences of emotional and physical abuse, neglect, heartache, and betrayal, and later his own addictions and struggles with mental illness, he manages to keep the reader thoroughly engaged and inspired by his strength and wisdom throughout this page-turner.

Johnnie’s willingness to be soul-bracingly honest in this book as he traces his earliest memories into his teens and then adult years is truly unlike anything I have ever read. I have no doubt that his display of courage and his determination to go to any lengths necessary for his own healing will serve as a guiding light for countless readers. It is a story of hope and love, forgiveness and healing. I only wish it had been available when I was a practicing addictions counselor. I would have made it required reading!


~Retired Addictions Counselor, Callie Chappell-Nicholas

Dragons to Butterflies takes you on a journey of tragedy to triumph from the broken heart of an abused child to the beautiful soul of a man.

“You have a strong voice Johnnie, and an important story to tell. Tell your story”

Johnnie Calloway has spent much of his life fighting one battle after another. A long train of unfortunate events carried him from a violent childhood to an equally unstable adulthood. Calloway chronicles his journey to create a promising future from an oppressive past in “Dragons to Butterflies: Metamorphosis of a Man.”

Calloway recounts his endless struggles in “Dragons to Butterflies.” He narrates his early years with an emotionally and physically abusive father, which led to substance abuse and mental illness as an adult. Calloway provides a detailed history with his demons, using his trials and tribulations to propel him towards growth and strength.

“It was incredibly painful to relive some of the moments that I wrote about in Dragons to Butterflies,” Calloway said. “But in order to inspire others, I knew I would need to be open about all that I have been through. My hope is that others will be motivated to move beyond their abuse and use the past as motivation for the future.”

“Dragons to Butterflies” takes one man’s true story of cruelty and transforms it into one of love, forgiveness, and hope. For more information on the author and book, please visit website and blog: http://www.dragonstobutterflies.com. Connect on  Facebook and

About The Author ~ Johnnie Calloway

author

.

Johnnie Calloway grew up in a small town in Kentucky, with the population at around 11,000. His mother passed when he was only five, leaving him to grow up with an angry, alcoholic, sexually confused father.  Johnnie was born into a reputation that he never wanted but was obligated to live up to. Still, Johnnie always wanted to be the “good guy.” The conflict between his personal desire and his sense of obligation to his dad’s/family’s reputation created a great torment that was oddly accompanied with an insatiable yearning to learn.

Eventually, Johnnie became a seeker of truth. And has now devoted himself to sharing what he is seeking has taught him with others. He has written two books, “Taming the Dragon” and Dragons to Butterflies: The Metamorphosis of a Man, and is currently working on, “Within the Chrysalis, It’s an Inside Job”.

“An Intimate Author Interview With Romance Thriller Author, A. Gavazzoni Here on Cat Lyon’s Reading Den.”

Hello, and Welcome Readers and Friends,

Her first book titled; “Behind The Door: Hidden Motives – book one” has just received a “Golden Box Books Judges Choice” book award! She has released book two titled; ” Lara’s Journal: A Sizzling Psychological Thriller” that I feel will HIT #1 on Amazon Kindle soon.  So let’s read and learn more about this beautiful Brazilian Lawyer by day and writer of steamy suspense by night, Author, A. (Adriana) Gavazzoni . . . .

(Q) Tell us a little about your new release of Lara’s Journal – book two and how it differs from your first novel ‘Behind the Door’?

“Lara´s Journal is the sequel to Behind The Door, and in this new novel, the reader is going to discover the hidden motives behind Lara´s behavior as an adult. Readers will get to know her, learning about her childhood through her college years.

Simone suffers deep changes in this second novel, thanks to the traumas she endured in the first book. In Lara’s Journey, Simone decides to enjoy life in a different way. The new book contains mystery, murder, and all criminal scenes were checked and endorsed by a former FBI agent, so they are as realistic as possible.

The book is also steamy as hell, so prepare for sex beyond any limits—even more scandalous than what readers encountered in Behind The Door”

(Q) How many books will be in your novel series?

I believe I’m going to write at least three…but I don´t put reins on or apply rules to my imagination; I let it run free!

(Q) What writing challenges did you have with Book Two? Was it more difficult to write than ‘Behind The Door’?

Book two has many criminal situations that required a frequent consultation with FBI agents, and also, I had to study a lot of psychiatry to create Lara and the other characters, but I don´t think writing Lara’s Journey was more difficult than writing Behind The Door, I believe the first novel was more difficult because it was the first one.

One difficulty I really had was to cut the second novel before it reached a thousand pages…and hold on to the rest of the story, keeping it in my mind for book number three.

.

.

(Q) Tell us about yourself?

Well…I am from Brazil…and I am a very active person, or better, I am hyperactive. Professionally I’m a lawyer and a writer…I love to dance, to work out, to read and to cook ( I can cook some amazing dishes and now I’m learning Indian Cook…spicy!!!!). I am also addicted to movies.I love to learn foreigner languages and culture ( I speak English, French, Spanish and Portuguese) and I travel abroad whenever I can. I love art and I’m a museum rat and passionate about history. I love animals. All kind of animals. And I have two dogs, two beautiful girls, Gaia and Juno.

(Q)  What inspires you to write?

Human nature inspired me. I love to observe people and try to guess why they behave the way they do…it’s all about hidden motives and we all have ours.

(Q) Do you have any unusual writing habits?

Whenever I have an idea for a scene I send messages to myself (whats app and e-mails) LOL.

(Q) What authors, or books have influenced you?

So many marvelous writers inspired me…to start with the classical ones like Emily Bronte, Stendhal, Dumas, Saad Marquis, Margaret Mitchell and modern ones like Marc Levy, Tom Clancy, Dan Brown, John Grisham and Colleen McCullough …but I could list a hundred here…the poems of Alisson Matos – a Brazilian writer – from Baudelaire to Allan Poe.

(Q) Do you have any advice for new authors? And what was the best advice you have gotten?

For writers, if you love to write, believe you are going to be a published writer/author and never give up on your dream! Now, the best overall advice I ever heard came from my father; “learn everything you can, Nobody can take knowledge from you.”

.

.

(Q) Now to round out your interview, a few personal detail. What is your favorite color and favorite foods?

My favorite color is red, and I don´t know if I have a favorite food, as I enjoy trying everything, but I really love any kind of spicy food—Thai, Indian, Brazilian Bahía´s food. I take great pleasure in the dining experience and think of it as a sensual activity, so, whenever I can…I try something really different.

(Q) And last, what is one “secret” about you that readers don’t know or can’t find to about you?

I´m an open person, so if someone asks me a direct question, I will answer. I don’t think I have any deep, dark secrets or skeletons in my closet, but there is one thing people might not guess about me—I´m very childlike, and I love to watch cartoons, Disney movies, and go to amusement parks. Nothing is more fun to me than a crazy-dangerous roller coaster that causes me to shout and scream until I’m hoarse! LOL!
