Meet the Characters of Fractured Glass: Calix

Fractured Glass is the Novel Anthology I wrote with the amazing Jo Michaels, Casey L. Bond, Kelly Risser, and N.L. Greene. It's currently available for pre-order and will be published to Amazon Kindle on 12/24/14.

I wanted to share some of the characters with you. To find other character features, check out my Diego post or the Harley and Sloan post.

Today, I want to introduce you to...

Calix



Calix is dark and sexy. He’s a product of cross-fractal species breeding, and no one knows his true age. There’s one thing everyone knows: Diego is insanely jealous of Calix spending time with Sloan. Everyone wonders what it is the man is truly after, but he’s not talking, and he has possession of Sloan in the fractal universe.

About Fractured Glass

What if other worlds existed alongside your own? What if you could travel through them and truly escape reality? 

Sloan and Harley Glass were born moments apart; but, despite their differences, the sixteen-year-old twins couldn’t be closer. They’ve held their tongues each and every time their mother has uprooted them—often moving across the country with little notice. They’ve learned to accept change. But what is Mom running from? 

They discover they’re travelers—half-descendants of those who can traverse an entire universe of parallel worlds known as fractals. When the past catches up, Harley is kidnapped and taken to one of those distant worlds. Now, Sloan must garner her courage and find a way to rescue her sister. Traversing the worlds isn’t the hard part; it’s surviving the elements and the creatures lying in wait to destroy everything in their path. 

Will the Glass sisters be able to save the fractal worlds from the kidnapper, or will everything fracture and crumble around them?

I introduced one of the characters in a couple of weeks ago. In case you missed Diego, check out the post here.

Sloan and Harley

Harley and Sloan Glass are sixteen-year-old twin sisters with the ability to traverse what are known as fractals. Harley is a soccer player and loves dancing, hanging with her sister, and running. Sloan plays guitar and enjoys school, her mother, and reading books. Both girls are excellent students and are home schooled.

Sharing Jo Michaels 12 Days of Reviews Fun!

The amazing Jo Michaels--my friend, editor, co-conspirator, cover designer, and all around great gal--is hosting a fun year-end event. Best of all... it's all about indies!

Each day she has giveaways and allows indie authors to pitch a book. She'll sample them and pick someone's book to buy. If she enjoys the book (and can give it a 3-star rating or better), she'll leave a review. Plus, it's a great way to find new books to read.

Okay, enough of my para-phrasing. Check out the rules here and yesterday's post at 12 Days of Reviews Requests, Day Two.

Oh, and did I mention you can enter to win a Kindle Fire HD 6 (16GB -- No special offers) White? Enter here

What are you waiting for? If you are a reader, go find some great books. If you are an indie author, go and pitch your novel. Either way, enter for some fun stuff.

Happy Wednesday!

A Black Cloud: #IWSG

The Insecure Writer's Support Group (or IWSG) is a wonderful group put together by the amazing Alex J. Cavanaugh (which now has an equally cool Facebook group). 

The first Wednesday of each month is the perfect opportunity to share my insecurities on the #IWSG therapy couch, get encouragement and support about such insecurities, and to read how other writers are faring.


First of all, I wanted to let everyone know that The Insecure Writer's Support Group Guide to Publishing and Beyond is available. Find out more here.


I plan on downloading a copy later today!

Now, it's time for my insecurity for December. Actually, it's more of a concern/fear.

The novella I just finished and the book I'm currently working on have some intensely emotional scenes. Unfortunately, I can't shake them. I feel like I'm walking around with a dark cloud, and I'm finding it hard to concentrate and get other things done.

What can I do to shake this heaviness? I need to get back to writing, editing, and life. I tried writing some lighter scenes, but the novella really doesn't have any, and that's the one I need to get back to (editing, etc).

Get to know the characters...

Diego


Diego is a seventeen-year-old who is adopted. His parents are workaholics, but he enjoys the freedom they give him so he can browse the internet, geek out over science, and spend every free moment at the Glass sisters’ house, studying the advanced science and mathematics their mother teaches them. 


He has a deep crush on Sloan, and he happens to be a technology wizard.

I can't wait for this book to go live on December 24, 2014!!

I will be sharing the other character bios in the coming days. But, enjoy Diego first.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the United States! Actually, to all my friends wherever you are, because I'm sure you are thankful for many things, as am I.

My family, including Ed's mom, are in Lake Tahoe celebrating the holiday. 

My dear daughters in Lake Tahoe

As I posted on my Facebook...
I am so grateful for my many blessings and for my friends and family. In addition, I am grateful for my challenges, because they teach me valuable lessons and make me who I am. However, I realize some are challenged much more than others. Sending hugs and love to anyone who feels their challenges are heavy this holiday season.
This time of year can be really hard on people, and I hope those who need support will reach out for it. Sending all my thoughts and prayers to those with heavy hearts this holiday season.
