Gory good fun-Fang-Tastic Thursday!

For day 4 of my book blog tour, I’ll be stopping by Fang-Tastic Books to do my promoting thing!

Because it’s Halloween, and speaking of fangs, I thought I’d switched it up a bit. I’m giving you all a teaser sneak-peek at Cypress Groves, book 2 in the Eternal Journey Series. If you’ve already read Lavender Fields, this will definitely make you take notice, as it’s still a romance, just a bit on the grimmer side! (Just wait til book 3!)

Here’s the link to check it out! Enjoy! Fang-tastic Books Blog

Tuesday (or tomorrow) marks day 2 of my blog tour through Bewitching Book Tours. Teatime and Books  and   Zenny’s Awesome Book Reviews will be featuring Lavender Fields this time.

Both sites showcase new books and authors and is a cool place to maybe curl up with a warm cup of Earl Grey and read all about my Greye from Lavender Fields!

Stop by and give them a look. Feel free to leave a comment.

I should also mention, I’m giving away some cool goodies through this tour as well!

I’m back, and here’s what’s new!

No, I didn’t fall off the planet. I’m here, alive and kicking! Work and life requirements have kept me away, but alas, I am back!

What’s new you ask? A few things have been brewing actually. For starters tomorrow, Monday October 26th, my blog tour begins through Bewitching Tours.

Starting off with Literary Musings, http://literarymusing.weebly.com/,  as well as

A Bookaholics Fix: Feeding the addiction, http://bookaholicfix.wordpress.com/

On this tour, I hope to reach new potential readers and find out more about the blogs I’m visiting as well. I’ll Facebook and Tweet the sites I’m visiting during the week, so people can stop by and check them (I mean me) out! 🙂

What else is going on? I’m still working on getting some book signings together, and will have some of my own giveaway promos coming up for the holiday season.

One of my other passions is acting, which has only been some scattered stage work and commercials. I’m now enrolled in a voice-over acting class and so far, it looks to be a great investment and worthwhile venture. Looking forward to branching out and learning more about this type of skill. I’ll share more once we get more into it.

Paranormal Love- on a Wild, Wonderful Wednesday

Welcome to the Paranormal Love Wednesday blog hop! I’m Raegyn Perry, and I’ll be your host for this site!

Lavender Fields is a paranormal romance that centers on reincarnation. The idea of having lived another life in another time isn’t a new concept in fiction, or romance. It is however, a timeless idea in and of itself.

Here’s a blurb:

Torrential rain spikes. A scream pierces the dark night. Greye Fields has immersed herself in her literary work. She has a life she’s happy with. She won’t allow herself the time or the desire to pursue love.

Until she meets him.

Connor Donovan is perfectly content with his bachelor status. Life is good, teaching middle school English, and being the favorite uncle. He wants for nothing.

Until he meets her.

Shattered glass. A wash of blood. Is it a nightmare or a memory? Can Connor and Greye overcome the obstacles to the love of all time, or is tragedy doomed to be repeated?

Lavender Fields is funny, sexy, dark and raw. It asks the question,

What if love found the right people, at the wrong time?

Lavender Fields is available on Amazon (anywhere!) in eBook and paperback. Here’s the link to get your copy. Lavender Fields by Raegyn Perry

Be sure to HOP back to the Paranormal Love Wednesday page to check out the other blogs for some great paranormal romances!

For the love of lavender

Lavender Fields that is. Now that my debut novel, Lavender Fields is published and out in the world, the task of making others aware of its existence also rests with me. Of course, my publisher Solstice Publishing is amazing at supporting its authors, but as it is my book, I need to do my part.

So, in doing my part, I share here a couple of ways of getting the word out.

First, I’m having a facebook launch party. This is where people can jump online, go to a specific page location between certain times, and virtually ‘hang out’ or even ‘stop by’. There’s no dressing up, getting a sitter, fighting traffic, or even burning any gas involved. Leave your bus pass in your wallet, and don’t worry about a taxi or uber driver.

Facebook-Launch Party!

Sunday, Oct. 11th ~ 9am to 2pm~author Raegyn Perry

Feel free to drop by and say hello. Meet some new folks, and most importantly, learn more about me, and my new book, Lavender Fields.  Here is a promo ad put together by the always awesome A.b. Funkhauser.

quick blip ad

I also have a HeadTalker campaign, which is a way to give a promo piece an extra infusion of media attention. You get at least 25 people to support you via feeds on their fb, twitter, Instagram, etc., and on the given deadline date (if the 25 are met), the blurb piece goes out to all the connections of those 25 people. I need just 7 more, so I’m pushing for a little more support – hint, hint!

Lavender Fields headtalker

 NOTE: It says to support Melissa Miller, who is my publishing CEO. She sets all of these up for us, all 200+ of us. We appreciate her immensely, her and ALL of the team at Solstice.

Also, just because I’m sharing, here is what a dream come true looks like (and actually feels like in my hands!)

20151009_170200                                                          For a teaser treat, here’s an excerpt:

Locked within the mass of people vying for entry, Connor, who easily stood above most of the others, casually took in his surroundings. He was impressed by the considerable effort and time he could see was taken to put this event together. He imagined no child here would be going to sleep tonight with being read a chapter or two of Bumblebears Adventure in the Land of Zofar, his brothers’ kids included.

Panning around at all the sights of the room, his eye caught and fixed on her. If he’d been looking for a sign, this most surely had to be one. Someone pushed on his back, prompting him to move forward. As the crowd dispersed, his family included, he moved his feet in her direction.

“Well, if it isn’t Lavender Fields, again.”

“It’s Greye Fields. You remembered my lotion from the park. Good memory.”

Realizing he was still holding her hand after the customary two second rule, she looked up at him. His smile widened, and with an igniting grin said, “Memories are, after all, strongly tied with scent. I won’t be forgetting you anytime soon, Greye Fields.”

Lavender Fields is now available NOW in eBook and print on Amazon. I’ve taken the liberty to put the direct purchase link right in the title!

Facebook Launch Party-This Sunday, Oct. 11th from 9am to 2pm

Headtalker support campaign -Please and Thank you!

Author A.B. Funkhauser drops by!

At Solstice Publishing, we have some pretty amazing authors, and I’m not saying that because I think I am one, I say that because I am thrilled to even say I know them. Some are very chill, some are feisty and others are just unique and quirky. Now, if unique and quirky needed a poster child, she would look a lot like my friend who though she needs no introduction, I’m going to ask her anyway.

So, guest author….can you please tell us your name?

Funny you should ask. The “B” in A.B. was recently unveiled by fellow Solstice Author Susanne Matthews. I’m A. Belle Funkhauser. You can call me Belle if you like.

Beautiful. (bdump bum tish!) Okay, Belle. So glad to have you stop by.

 

Gonzo Funkauser

Nice sunny day, outside plotting away. Rough gig, being an author! Got the gonzo thing down!

So, we know you’re an author, can you tell us about your book?

The book is called HEUER LOST AND FOUND and it’s my debut. I’m very excited about it because it’s been out since April and slowly, steadily, it’s getting some attention. It’s gratifying, given that it took me about thirty years to get it down on paper. I’m so glad that I took the plunge.

blurb for marissa party

It’s published through Solstice, which is a medium sized e publisher out of Missouri. I’m incredibly grateful to them for believing in HEUER (rhymes with “lawyer”) and me. I still can’t believe it!

I know the feeling! It’s a validation for sure. What is Heuer about?

A dead lawyer “wakes” in his litter strewn home. Undiscovered for many days, he wonders where his friends have got to and begins to question everything; chief among them, the veracity of his own existence, what it meant before death and what it will mean from now on. Once found, Heuer’s preternatural residue travels with his body to the funeral home where he ‘meets’ Enid, his funeral director and ex. He hasn’t seen her in twenty years, so there’s a lot of baggage to work through. By extension, HEUER goes from irreverent philosophical to a relationship story, but without sentimentality on the part of the protagonists. It’s not so much that they lack humanity as much as they can’t be certain about what they’ve done and what damage their actions might have caused, so they suppress their feelings until compelled to confront them. In a sense, they both go on a journey to find out what their past means and how they can make amends to achieve a fitting end. The front cover of the book features a door and that’s where he’s headed; just what is behind the door and how important it is, is left up to the reader to decide.

A journey for sure. He’s doing a lot of reflecting. It’s always been said that when we die, our life flashes before our eyes. For Heuer, it sounds like he’s getting dosed with it as he struggles to figure out his life (and death) . Wow, I didn’t mean to get so deep. I like it!

 I was always curious about the meaning of the door on the cover. It’s a cool visual, and now I know! It’s not just A door, it is kind of THE door. I like it!

With this being a decidedly unique premise for a story, I’d be remiss if I didn’t ask what was the inspiration for Heuer?

FUNERAL DIRECTOR AD

This is a popular question and it has forced me to go deeper for an answer. Amazon classed HEUER under ‘humor/horror’ which was surprising and pleasing to me because the foundations of the story are rooted in a lot of good people I used to know and the good times we shared. “Heuer,” the man, is a composite character that combines fact and fiction from many sources: literature, film and personal observation. The short answer is that I lost a friend, and as a funeral director I was compelled to start a grief journal to cope with the loss. From that came imagination, humor and FICTION.

Sorry for the loss of your friend, but impressed that you worked through that process, and found a character and a world and a frankly kick-ass story that came from it.

All over my work space, I have quotes and images and phrases that speak to me, so it’s a corny, over-used question, but it is my blog, so I’m asking! What is a favorite, or go to line or quote that you like?

NOW AND FORWARD. It’s one of my own.

I like it.

Since we’ve known each other, I’ve found you to be smart, funny, talented as all get out, and generous to a fault. What is a fun ‘Belle’ fact that I, or now ‘we’ don’t know about you-yet?

I can sing!

What!? That is AWESOME! You heard it here folks. The amazing A.B. Funkhauser is a singer! So……don’t think I won’t ask for a sound byte from you next time you visit. She sings! To understand how cool I think this is, I am the person in the back of the room, animatedly and enthusiastically lip-syncing the hell out of ‘Happy Birthday!’ (Yeah, I act and dance, but don’t sing)

OK, now for the fun questions!

If Hollywood cast your book into a movie, who would you see as your ‘dream’ cast of, and for which characters?

I cast my characters from the get go because it was the only way I could choreograph the scenes and get them down on paper. I’m a cinephile—watched hundreds of films—so I had a rich treasure trove to mine from. Jurgen Heuer IS Leonardo DiCaprio in that he embodies that curious, ageless quality that hints at something almost supernatural. Heuer is physically ‘beautiful’ and makes a big deal of this after his death. Cat-like, elegant and intense in his gaze, Heuer’s qualities both attract and repel those closest to him. DiCaprio’s ‘look’ for me is enigmatic—my favorite kind of character trait. The funeral director Enid Krause had to be Kate Winslet because she and Leo have appeared so well together on film, so the chemistry was there…all I had to do was take down the electricity. Enid’s sidekick Carla Moretto Salinger Blue is a composite of two people I know, so I had to think about this a bit. She is Italian/Irish with flashing eyes and a smile that reassures and snarls at the same time – I would say–Sarah Michelle Geller (post Buffy), and with black hair. Charlie Forsythe IS Alec Baldwin, hands down. Jocasta Binns, for fans of classic cinema, IS Bette Davis, age 60+, but if I have to pick from the living I’d go with Irish actor Fionnula Flanagan (FOUR BROTHERS, THE INVENTION OF LYING, THE GUARD); she’s vulnerable and gritty.

Seriously, it would have been nice if you’d given this some thought!  Needless to say, the casting directors will have their work cut out for them securing the pool of talent needed. Really good choices though, as I consider myself a bit of a cinephile as well.

Do you listen to music while you write? If yes, who inspires you? Sidebar: Do you dance?

I work from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday about eight months of the year. The first thing I do after putting the coffee pot on to perk, is turn the radio on to CBC Radio FM 94.1, which plays Classical all morning and into the early afternoon, then switches to contemporary alternative. I love Mahler, Liszt, Satie and Holst.

Dance? Oh, yeah! Always! I groove. Always loved Disco. There! I admit it!

I seriously can’t stand it. You cannot possibly be human. Nobody should be that cool! Now, I’m almost afraid to ask my last question, as I fear it’ll send me over the edge. Damnit, I’m asking. What, pray-tell, do you/could you possibly have as a guilty pleasure? My personal phrase is ‘Nerding out’, so what do you nerd out about?

I will never feel guilty about my love for classic cars; specifically: Detroit muscle. I try to get to the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit every other year, and I love hitting the show and shines on weekends during the summer months. I don’t own a classic yet, but when I do, it will be a Chevelle SS 4 barrel V8. That’s a promise.

And, your a cool classic car chick! I’m shocked to my very core. (giggling!)

There is abundant brilliance within the creative bones of this author, my friend, A.b, who is a former funeral director, current and forever classic car enthusiast, mom of teenagers, and lover of all the wild things (probably animals mostly, but again, this is A.B!)

GET FREAKED ADMany people have sent A.B. photos of themselves with their copies of Heuer, which is proving that there is definitely something of a movement happening, and it doesn’t show signs of stopping anytime soon.

Heuer: Lost and Found has received a 4.9/5 stars on Goodreads. Impressive? You bet your bottom dollar (or Toonie is it?) .

So, you cool, creative, crazy-fun debut author you, where can we go when we want our Heuer?

Paperbacks and Kindle versions can be ordered through all of the Amazons, Barnes & Noble and my publisher http://solsticepublishing.com/heuer-lost-and-found/. The geo buy link is http://myBook.to/heuerlostandfound. That will take the purchaser to the location nearest them.

Thank you beautiful lady for stopping by!

It’s all about that BRASS!

So, as you know by now, I’m a newly published author. On my blog here, I’ve featured other authors, and will likely do so for the foreseeable future. However, I am also a playwright, and I have many friends in the performing arts. I wanted to spotlight and feature those talented people here as well.

Today, this fabulous Friday, I present to you an amazingly talented friend of mine. Ladies and Gentlemen, the one, the only, John Longenbaugh!.!

I am so stoked to have you here John. For those who don’t already know you, can you tell everyone what it is you do?

Hey Raegyn, I am a writer/director, based here in Seattle.

We met through some new & mutual friends at a reading of one of your plays, (which was amazing, by the way). What do you currently have going on?

I have several projects—a couple of musicals, a thriller, some short pieces. But the all-consuming one right now is a multi-platform Steampunk adventure serial called BRASS, taking place simultaneously as a radio series and a late-night stage play, while we raise money to shoot a short independent film.

Wow, you weren’t kidding about several projects. Can you share more about this BRASS?

BRASS tells the story of a family of Victorian science-geniuses. Lady Brass is a Sherlock Holmes-level detective, Lord Brass is an engineer and inventor, their son Cyril is a martial artist savant and their daughter Gwendolyn a mistress of disguise. They’re at war with a criminal conspiracy that ranges across London and includes scores of villains. They’re also very nice people, generally.

They sound like good people to know when the world needs saving, and not so good people to know if you’re the one doing the villainous bad stuff that bad villains do.

Sounds like a great idea. How did this project come about?

I was offered a chance to pitch an idea for a TV series to a cable network, along with several other writers. While I’ve written a couple of independent films and the pilot for a web series, I’d never really thought about what it might be like to write a TV series. I knew most successful series have at their root a family—often not a biological family, but a group of friends, or co-workers, or other small community where characters would fall into traditional family roles. So I asked what sort of family I might want to write about, and the answer was unequivocal: a family of Victorian science geniuses.

(It helps that I’ve been a fan for several years of Steampunk, the multi-disciplinary art movement that imagines alternate histories of the 19th century.)

Okay, that John in and of itself, is pretty genius! I mean, who doesn’t love Steampunk? It’s history, it’s creative, it’s science and super cool gadgets and whatnot’s. (I know ‘whatnot’ is a broad term, but let me have it.)

You mentioned writing for a TV series……..

My piece wasn’t picked for the TV series, though that was a blessing—the one that was chosen ended up disappearing, along with most of the network’s creative staff—a few months later.

Proof that it wasn’t meant to be. You know, one door closing, a window…Sorry, continue John

The Brasses stayed with me. (They’re very pleasant house guests, really.) So I started to think about how I could tell their story.

In talking to my producing partners, it seemed that we could do a short BRASS film ourselves. But even a small independent film costs thousands of dollars, and while we got our heads around what it would take to raise the money (always an effort), I couldn’t stop thinking up new adventures for the Brasses family. My co-producer Ron suggested that we could produce a podcast, maybe even a dramatic series, and so after writing the screenplay for the film, I dug in and wrote a 10-part radio serial, setting up their arrival in London and their early encounters with various criminal bosses.

I love the multi-faceted idea of film, podcast, and radio serial!

When I was finished with the radio serial, I passed it on for comment to my playwright friend Louis Broome, who wrote a dynamite play a few years ago called “Texarkana Waltz.” He really liked what I was doing, and so I took a chance and asked if he wanted to co-write a stage play version of BRASS with me. He said yes, and the result, “BRASS: Oh My Azaleas!” is on stage right now at Theater Schmeater, running late-night Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 to midnight. (It ends October 10th, so if you want to see it, get tickets now.)

Wow John, it seems you are as adventurous as your family of Brasses! A stage production as well! Awesome! You heard it here folks, get your tickets now! I’ll put the information again below.

Someone who would one day love to see her own play produced, I have to ask, what has been the most challenging in this monumental feat you’re pulling off?

The idea of producing across three different mediums was supposed to create synergy. Of course, timing of various aspects of all of this didn’t match up—it took us much longer to get the radio series edited than we had planned for, as an example. As a result, in the last two weeks I’ve been rehearsing a stage show, getting the radio series out to producers, and running an Indiegogo campaign for the film “The Lair of the Red Widow,” which we’re looking to shoot this fall. Frankly I exceeded my bandwidth, but fortunately for me the show is now open and many more of my evenings are now free.

I would imagine, free to sleep! This is obviously what you are passionate about. What has been the most rewarding?

I love writing and producing radio drama and I find filmmaking fascinating, but for me the greatest reward will probably always be sharing a room with an audience seeing one of my plays. Nothing beats opening night.

Not my words, but theater is about entering as individuals, and leaving as a group. Being bound by a shared experience is fantastic. I can only imagine being the playwright, how even more powerful that is.

So John, can you talk about anything else for you down the road yet? I mean, you obviously don’t have enough going on, but I ask anyway.

We’re hoping to get a third and final workshop for the musical I wrote with Bruce Monroe, “Anybody Can Do Anything,” adapted from the hilarious memoir by Betty MacDonald. This is a wonderful slice of Seattle history, the funniest book you’ll ever read about the Great Depression, and I have my fingers crossed that we can find someone who can help us get this up on its feet for a final work-through before it gets a full production. I’ve also been commissioned to write the book for a new musical and I’m in the early stages of that. I’ve got to get back to my second novel and find a new agent for the first one, and it’s now looking increasingly likely that there will be a Season Two for the audio series of BRASS as well as another play early next year. It should keep me pretty busy for the next while anyhow.

I had to ask didn’t I! Busy for the next while? Sounds like you’ll need at least one cog & wheel machine version of yourself to keep up with all you have going on! Which, is also incredibly impressive, I have to say.

Knowing now what we do of you John, I dare ask this next question, but here goes. What is one thing people may not know about you or your project that you can share?

This year I received a “Footprints of a Giant Hound” award from my fellow Sherlockians at the Sound of the Baskervilles, a Seattle-based scion group of the Baker Street Irregulars. I love being considered a worthy Sherlockian.

Seriously, come on. You had me at Sherlockian!

OK, now for a couple fun questions! Who am I kidding, they’re fun for me! If you walked into a room (or strutting down the street), what would your soundtrack, or theme music be?

No doubt something pretty corny, though I would definitely prefer something cool. If I could choose, it’d be “Green Onions” by Booker T. and the MG s.

Nice! Corny, cool-it’s all something to move to as far as I’m concerned! Sidebar: Do you dance?

I dance. I think it’s best if we talk about something else.

Oh really ? Hmm. I’ll leave it for now, but don’t think I’m not investigating THAT comment somewhere down the line!

We all have them, and they are fun to exploit. So John, what is your guilty pleasure? (something you are passionate, or a nerd about)

Too many things. Probably the most shameful one are certain comic books, the majority of which are written by Alan Moore. I think he’s the only genius working in the medium, and his “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” was a major influence on the sort of stories I want to tell with BRASS.

LoEG is one of my favorites! You clearly don’t schlep when it comes to influencers! Where can people find you to check out your various projects?

All over the place!

Fridays/Saturdays 10:30pm-Midnight

This is a blog-jack! Tammie takes over!

Hey all! You don’t know me, but I’m the best friend, Tammie. I’m hi-jacking Raegyn’s World today to turn the tables and interview HER!

Now, we’ve been friends for going on a hundred years.

Whoa there chika, speak for yourself old lady. You ARE a full year older, just saying.

Whatever, so friends for more like 35 years, but the thing is, I know you-they don’t.

(Looking around this weirdly organized space of hers for the questions she’s always asking people.) Here we go…

Hey Peej, oops, haha! You’re a fancy published author type now with a pen name no one can pronounce.

What is so hard about it? It’s just spelled differently, but pronounced like the 40th President of the United States, Reagan.

If you say so, Raegyn. Hey, don’t give me that look, I’ve got this.

I’m not giving you a look. Just ask the questions already.

Wait, how did you come up with Raegyn (‘like the 40th President of the United States’)

See, there you go. That’s a good question. Tinged with a little smart- ass, but…..I took the letters of my mother’s, father’s and my name and rearranged them until I came up with something different, and uniquely my own.

Well, you succeeded there.

Thank you.

You are welcome. It feels like forever you’ve been working on Lavender Fields. How did you finally get published?

I wrote Lavender Fields many years ago. I had the idea even long before I started writing it. I thought it was ready for the world when it really wasn’t. I revised it some, shelved it for a while, revised it again, and got many rejection letters and emails when I put it out there. One day, after corresponding with Kate at Solstice, I decided to try once again. I literally, held my breath, closed my eyes and hit send.

Wow, so dramatic!

Thanks. I’m choosing to ignore the sarcasm there. Anyway, I received an email back that they wanted it, and they sent me a contract.

Yes, it was about time! The world is ready for it. What is Lavender Fields about anyway?

It’s a paranormal romance that centers around reincarnation, so it’s basically two romances. Lavender Fields is the love story of Connor Donovan and Greye Fields, who through a less than impressive first meeting, find themselves in a relationship that’s tested in more than one way. Strange coincidences, nightmares and odd clues take them on a journey that could end their love forever, or be the beginning of forever.

It’s part of a trilogy right? What happens next?

A supporting character (or more) from Lavender Fields start their own journey toward love, and some interesting, twisted revelations are uncovered.

For those who are not your BFF, how do they get their hands on your book?

Solstice Publishing

Amazon

 

       How are you promoting Lavender Fields? Oprah?

I wish, Oprah! Ellen would be cool too! Anyway, On October 11th, I’m having a facebook launch party from 9am to 2pm. On my Raegyn Perry author page. It’ll be a fun way to get people to stop by and chat, post, share, like, AND win some super cool prizes and swag with trivia, games, etc.

You mentioned something about a blog tour didn’t you?

Yes, thanks for the reminder. I’ll be blog touring the last week of October with Bewitching Book Tours, and will have an ad run with Fangtastic Books. I will also pop up on other author blogs here and there.

What about real live author-like book signings?

Yes, I do plan on doing some of those as well. I’ll post on Twitter, fb, and here as they come up.

You are shooting some of the cool launch party swag my way right?

Yes, love I will. You’re hosting an hour of the fb launch party remember?

That’s right! Dude, do you remember what nickname we used to call each other back in school?

You mean other than ‘dude’? Um, oh I remember, Maynard!

Yes, we called each other Maynard! I remember that!

What was that thing we used to do on the clear coffin floor of Chicago Louie’s?

We danced my friend. We danced!

You bet your bootie we did! This interviewing stuff is fun. Who can I interview next?

Anyone you want. Great job! You’ve been my best friend forever, and I will always appreciate your love, support, and general bff-ness more than you will ever know. You get me!

Gah. You know I don’t really do the mushy gushy stuff.

Yes, you do. You’re a sweet, kind, loving, fun spirit. You just tend to tell people exactly how you feel, exactly how you feel like it, exactly when you feel like it.

You do get me.

Yes, I do Maynard. Yes I do.
