As a teenager, she often neglected schoolwork (didn't we all?) and sleeping in order to get in more reading time. I can relate to that - sometimes I find myself staying up late because I want to finish an interesting article or chapter.


Now E.B. writes fantasy, science fiction, and romance books, recently collaborating with more than 20 authors in Rite to Reign:

  • USA Today bestselling author Heather Marie Adkins
  • Teresa Roman
  • JJ King writing with Candace Osmond

$50 Amazon gift card & Diana Anderson-Tyler's fantasy chronicles

This author is one of my favorite guests, blending ancient myth and modern culture.

Diana Anderson-Tyler's writing journey has proved much more than a transient phase. If you're anything like her, then you've likely discovered that pursuing your passion as an adult is no longer like playing in a sandbox.

Welcome back to the blog, Diana!


Gone are the care-free, easy-going days of simply devising clever stories or thinking up unique characters and hastily following after them with your pen. Diana's writing has made the beautiful transition from hobby to profession, from curiosity to obsession, from amusement to craft, from passion to purpose.

Diana has come to believe that writers are also warriors. Many giants must be slayed as we strive to share our stories with the world. Many invaders must be routed as we defend the work whose characters, settings, conflicts, and themes keep us up at night.


Full of twists and turns and thrilling surprises, War of the Ashers is book #2 in The Petros Chronicles, an exciting fantasy adventure for lovers of Greek mythology.

To save the present and secure the future, Chloe must return to the past, to an age when the stuff of myth is a terrifying reality.

With the Councilman’s guards hot on their trail, Chloe, Damian, and Ethan dive through a mystical portal that transports them to the ancient hills of Ourania where they swiftly learn that Petros is literally crumbling in the warpath of Mania, the powerful rogue Asher who’s hell-bent on ruling the world and erasing every trace of Duna, the true creator against whom the rebel gods are fighting.

With the lords of the Underworld on her side, a colossal chip on her shoulder, and a doma by which she commands the elements, Mania appears utterly indestructible. The only thing standing between her and global domination is the last few Ashers hiding in the hills, scrambling to devise a plan and make sense of the mysterious shapeshifter in their midst…

If Chloe and her friends don’t act quickly, Mania will be in possession of the magical ambrosia that gives the gods their immortality. And if she becomes immortal, their fate is inextricably sealed, and the future of Petros will be darker and more hopeless than ever.

In this riveting sequel to Age of the Ashers, Chloe and Damian must embrace their destiny by facing the resistance Orpheus prophesied would come. Will they band together, or will the bitterness between them make everything fall apart?


So who wants to win something?!

To celebrate the release of War of the Ashers, Diana Anderson-Tyler and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$40 Amazon gift card and fantasy author Theresa Snyder

What would you do if you were adopted by a dragon?

Theresa Snyder is a multi-genre writer with an internationally read blog. She grew up on a diet of B&W scifi films like Forbidden Planet and The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Theresa is a voracious reader, and her character driven writing is influenced by the early works of Anne McCaffrey, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, and L. Ron Hubbard.


If you love dragons then you'll find The Farloft Chronicles irresistible.

James & the Dragon is book #1 of the exciting saga of Farloft the dragon and his friends. What would you do if you were adopted by a dragon? When 10-year-old orphan James nearly drowns in a bog, he finds himself rescued by Farloft, a centuries-old dragon with a glittering collection of treasures and an even richer collection of stories.

But, dragons and boys are not meant to live together – or are they? When Laval, a wizard harboring a secret hatred for Farloft, finds out about James, he sees his chance for revenge.


Still curious about the author? Time for an interview with Theresa...

What inspires you to write?
It varies. Often current affairs will influence my work. The Farloft Chronicles were originally inspired by a need to make an impression on my nine year old nephew. He didn't seem to listen to his parents, me or his grandparents. I wondered, 'who would a 9 year old listen to?' I figured, he'd listen to a dragon. That's how Farloft was born.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
I can usually write a book in three months and edit it for another 2-3 months. The paranormal can be written quicker because they are much shorter. However, the latest in my "Star Travelers" scifi series, "The Beast Within" took over 5 years. A lot went into that one to make it a stand-alone volume to capture more readers for my original series.

What are you working on right now?
I have several volumes in different stages of completion. My agent has the next Farloft Chronicle. I think it is one of the best in the series. I am working on a spin-off of the scifi series with a kickass female lead. And I am currently writing a first draft on my Serial Story Blog for the seventh book in the Twin Cities paranormal/fantasy series. My agent has the sixth.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Persevere. Keep writing. Like anything else, practice makes perfect. There are few of us that are bestsellers right off the bat. C.S. Lewis was 52 years old before he got his Narnia series published. L. Frank Baum was told over and over again that no one would read an American Fairy Tale. "The Wizard of Oz" has become a staple to children around the world. Don't give up. Line up a good group of beta readers, get yourself a reputable editor, and put out the cleanest copy you can, grammatically and visually.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
I can't recommend just one book. So I will do it by the genres I write. One of my favorite non-fiction books is "West with the Night" by Beryl Markham. It has some of the most picturesque prose you would ever read. It screams to be read out loud. "Battlefield Earth" by L. Ron Hubbard, is one of my favorite scifi books. It has a wonderful style in which the author shows you the same scene from both the alien and the human's perspective. It's funny how the reader finds themselves relating to the alien more than the human in several cases. My paranormal favorite is "Night Play" by Sherrilyn Kenyon. It is one of her "Dark Hunter" series. She is inspirational. And, I can't pick a single fantasy novel, I would have to say that Anne McCaffrey's "Dragons of Pern" inspired me with great character development and dialogue that made them come alive for me as a young reader. I hope you are all inspired to take a look at these authors.

$40 Amazon gift card and contemporary romance author Claire Marti

If you enjoy fresh, sexy beach reads featuring strong heroes and passionate heroines, you'll love this next author.

Claire Marti started writing stories as soon as she was old enough to pick up pencil and paper. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in English Literature, Claire was sidetracked by other careers, including practicing law, selling software for legal publishers, and managing a non-profit animal rescue for a Hollywood actress.


Claire's award winning debut novel, Second Chance in Laguna, won best unpublished contemporary romance in the Heart of the Molly and third place in the Maggie and was a Finalist for Best Contemporary Romance in the Stiletto Contest.

At Last in Laguna, the second book in the series, is garnering major praise and is available now. Book #3 in the Laguna series, Sunset in Laguna, just released days ago!

Returning to Laguna Beach after four tours in the Middle East, Christian Wolfe leaves the military behind and buys a wine bar, vowing to keep his life simple. He fights to keep his devastating PTSD a secret and refuses to burden anyone else with his baggage. When stunning Kelly Prescott and her red stilettos saunter into town, she drives him past the bonds of his self-control.

Successful in her father’s stuffy law firm, Kelly’s too compassionate to survive in the cutthroat world of corporate litigation. Leaving behind both family and courtroom drama, she moves to Laguna to become general counsel for a nonprofit veterans’ organization.

She didn’t bargain on a gorgeous modern-day Heathcliff, and in Christian, she sees another kind of challenge—one she can’t resist.


Still curious about the author? Time for an interview with Claire...

What inspires you to write?
I love telling stories and if I can provide an escape for readers from their daily life, I'm happy!

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
I would say 4-6 months. My books are contemporary romances and the first three are @50k words.

What are you working on right now?
I've got a new series and a few agents are reading the full manuscript now. I'm really excited. In the meanwhile, I'm researching a mainstream fiction novel featuring a love triangle set in 1920's Paris.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Make yourself sit in the chair for a specific amount of time, regardless if you are feeling inspired. Writing requires so much discipline and getting into the habit of doing it on a regular schedule. It's easy to give up, but keep going!

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Ernest Hemingway's A Moveable Feast is my favorite book of all time.

$40 Amazon gift card and the return of zombie author Baileigh Higgins!

If you like zombies in your books then today's your lucky day! You might recall I've featured this author awhile back.

Baileigh Higgins loves nothing more than lazing on the couch with pizza and a bad horror movie. Her unhealthy obsession with the end of the world has led to numerous books on the subject and a secret bunker only she knows the location of.


Baileigh is the author of numerous apocalyptic and dystopian tales of survival including her best selling series, Dangerous Days and The Tides of Blood.

Dead of Night is book #1 in the Dangerous Nights Series and packs a serious apocalyptic punch.


>>>The only thing deadlier than Zombies, is yourself...

Amazon gift card and inspirational romance author Joselyn Vaughn

This next author enjoys romance and happy endings.

Joselyn Vaughn loves writing romance because she enjoy stories where everything works out in the end and the main characters live happily ever after. Her stories are set in small towns with quirky characters that take on a life of their own.


In Joselyn's inspirational romance, A Penny Saved, Penny Pounds has never met a challenge she couldn’t plow straight through… until she starts forgetting things and misplacing items, causing her to worry that dementia is creeping into her brain.

Recalling her mother’s similar descent and the burden as a caregiver, Penny’s solution is to snag a husband.

An excerpt of A Penny Saved:

"I'm getting married."
The perfect solution to all her worries. A husband would fix everything. Penny Pounds glowed at her own brilliance.
Her brother, Buck, choked on his beer. "What?"
Penny patted her freshly-dyed pink hair. The bottle claimed strawberry blond, but when layered over her whitened hair, the color produced a delicate rose. The curls had been tamed at the hair salon in preparation for her nephew's wedding this evening.
"I'm getting married," she repeated the statement, comforted by how the words felt. She'd waited sixty years to say them. It was about time.
"But..." Buck sputtered. "Who? At your age?" The bewilderment on her little brother's face amused her. His suspicious attitude wouldn't dent her happiness. Bliss existed in
discovering a suitable answer. "Why haven't I met him?"
She lifted her cup of soda and took a long drink. Sidney and Joshua's wedding cemented the idea. As the happy couple had recited their vows, the idea dawned on her. 'In sickness and in
health.' A married couple supported each other through everything, all the ups and downs. She should have thought of it before, but with getting her nephew and her tenant together and
aiding their wedding plans, she had been losing details left and right. "You haven't met him because I haven't met him."
Buck's graying head still sported an unfair proportion of black, although his middle, despite the recent chemotherapy, was inflating a second spare tire. The charcoal suit disguised an
expanding waistline almost as well as the pleated chiffon gown she'd chosen to wear.
Buck eyed his beer. The liquid sloshed just below the bottle neck. "I haven't drank nearly enough to be imagining this conversation."


So who wants the chance to win a prize?
