Help with Promotion

Sometimes, you need that extra hand with your book promotion.

Happily, I founded The One-Sixth Scale Acting Company!  Always willing to help and I don’t pay them much (See why, below).

The word “Scale” is used in Hollywood in reference to the pay rate an actor can expect for a role in a movie. As illustrated in this joke:
One actor asks another actor friend about the embarrassing flop of his recent movie.
“What did you do that turkey for?”
“Scale.”

Miranda Brock!

From an early age Miranda Brock has always loved fantasy and adventure everything. Since she doesn’t live in a world of enchanting powers, mythical beasts, and things unbelievable she has decided to write about them. (Although, if you happen to see a dragon flying around, do tell her.) Born in southern Illinois, where she still resides with her husband and two children, she grew up running through the woods, playing in creeks, and riding horses. What started out as writing poetry grew into short stories and eventually led to her first novel, Souls Discovered. Miranda lives in the country where she finds inspiration in the simplicity and beauty around her. With the help of a ridiculous amount of coffee and some good music she writes whenever she gets a chance.

Spin away with young Autumn as she finds a seemingly innocuous gold necklace on her family’s farm and inadvertently uncovers her destiny as “The Keeper.” Autumn’s discovery of the necklace activates “The Window” and alerts both good and evil forces to her whereabouts. Autumn is pulled from everything she knows and tossed into a life of unknowns. Enigmatic enemies called Dehmons hunt her at every turn and if captured the very world she lives in will fall into destruction. With the help of seven Searchers Autumn must learn to use the power she has been given before it is too late.

Will she choose to follow the dangerous destiny thrust upon her?

Will she be able to withstand the temptation of a relationship that could jeopardize everything?

Most importantly, will Autumn be able to find the strength within herself to fight the dead-eyed evil Dehmon souls?

The Chronicles of Anna, Deadly Box Set includes all three novels in one great place.

Deadly Expectations:
As a teen Anna Creed discovers she can time travel; a trick she uses to ‘jump’ from one place to another with no apparent passage of time. All she needs are two wheels, speed and nerves of steel. Now eight years later she’s alone and pregnant when her secret power takes control to save her life. Injured and confused Anna finds herself in the arms of Paul Richards, her summer lover and the father of her child.
But Paul has secrets of his own. He’s the head of an old conflict weary family and has been Anna’s past life lover time and time again, something only he remembers.
Things come apart for Anna when she starts ‘jumping’ in her sleep. Both Anna and her sister are in mortal danger from Paul’s uncle Damian and a ghost from her past life is driving her to murder. As Anna and Paul’s fledgling relationship unravels she takes the final and unforgivable step of attacking him and leaving him behind.
From Northern California to the rainforests of British Columbia Anna gets closer to the truth about Paul’s family and the realization that saving Paul and her unborn child may ultimately cost her life.

Deadly Deceptions:
Three months after the birth of their daughter Camille, Paul and Anna Richards are touched by tragedy. Alone in the hospital she is approached by Jack Roberts, a man who claims to be the son of Damian Howard.
Jack and his men want Paul and Anna’s help breaking away from his brothers RJ Soros and Gerald Walker. With Damian’s death his house has been thrown in to disarray but by offering to help Jack, Anna’s house is divided as well.
Separated from her husband and daughter and hunted by Soros and Walker, Anna must make a difficult decision to protect her daughter’s life, a decision that may ultimately destroy everything else she has sworn to protect.

Deadly Redemptions:
After four months existing in Damian Howard’s Connecticut family home, Jack and Anna are finally able to spend short periods of time apart. Both are worse for wear; any mistake of Anna’s is taken out on Jack. They find the cure for the twins tearing at her and must keep it secret; if Jack’s brothers Gerald Walker and RJ Soros learn she is cured Jack will pay the ultimate price for his earlier traitorous acts against them.
Following an attempt on their lives treachery is found on all sides and Jack and Anna find allies in strange places and lies closer than ever.
On the eve of disaster news from a dubious source is an opportunity Anna can’t risk passing up. Can she endanger everything in one impulsive move and an unknown future or should she and Jack resign themselves to short lives of misery and another chance at happiness on the other side?

August Authors – Judith Rook

Check out the works of Judith Rook right here.

Judith Rook was born and raised in rural Yorkshire in the UK. [Note the use of UK spelling herein. Ed] The nearest city was Bradford, the great centre for wool processing, but she remembers fields running up to moorland much more clearly than mill chimneys.

Judith’s early writing was done in old accountants’ ledgers which had blank sheets interleaved with the ruled pages. She wrote on the ruled pages as well. Not thinking of becoming a writer, Judith wrote whatever she felt like writing: stories, poems, reflections. Then life intervened and her imagination went underground. For some time, she worked in education and wrote articles and reviews about music.
After a few years, Judith began to write fiction. Recording ideas that had been bottled up for a long time, she thought that she had become an author. When rejection notices came in she joined two writing groups, developed her technical skills and learned how to write stories for other people.
Judith is an avid reader. Sci-fi is her favourite genre, then come the great classics, followed closely by fantasy. However, her taste is reasonably universal and perhaps one day she will try her hand at thrillers or crime stories. Judith greatly admires good crime writers.
As a young woman Judith emigrated to Western Australia where she lives now with a cat and a computer. From time to time she stirs herself to rally around important social issues and has been known to take to the streets in support, so long as there are good cafés along the way.
Periodically Judith turns to short stories. She finds that the challenges of short story writing refresh and strengthen the techniques which she uses in her novels.

Circe is one of the sentient planets in the system; she can think, and the humans who live with her are slightly different from the humans on other planets. However, they keep themselves to themselves and do not make contact with non-thinking planets. But now Circe is reaching out to First Home, the technological giant, the strongest world of the solar system, because she has sensed a great danger approaching from far off in the galaxy, and she is making plans to deal with it.
Tethyn must escort the envoy and his entourage on an expedition to her hidden family home where he will encounter the planet herself, see some of her powers and learn about her past. The envoy is deeply affected by the experience. During the excursion Tethyn admits to herself that she has come to love Lewis although in return she cannot hope for anything other than his desire. But desire is not enough, and when Lewis wants to take Tethyn to First Home, she refuses him.
Then personal danger for Lewis arrives. An enemy has followed him from First Home, and lives begin to alter.
