It's time for another Blog Tour! Today there's also something special included, so kick back, relax and enjoy.
At the Other End:
A young blogger has the ultimate on-line encounter; a spirit partner who introduces him to a world he must master to save his own. A ghost in the machine? Adam is a 19 year old blogger who lives in his mother’s basement and who is dealing with a critically ill friend. A simple reply to a blog fan e-mail begins a relationship with Pretoria, a beautiful and mysterious young woman. Pretoria guides him into ‘the Realm’, a spirit world where he discovers he is a powerful force for the protection and survival of human kind. As Pretoria reintroduces Adam to the Realm and his place in it, he realizes that she is not only trying to reclaim him for the sake of humanity, but also for the spirit world and herself. Facing a powerful evil , Adam re-engages with the Realm in order to save his friend and the human world while re-discovering why he had tried to escape it in the first place. As a battle within the Realm reaches its climax, Adam must finally choose between his human and his spirit form, or lose both
1. Where have we seen you before?You haven’t! I am one of those new fangled, previously unpublished authors that comes along every so often and makes the world a better place for someone!
2. What goes through your mind after your novel has been on sale for the first week? Did anyone buy it? Will anyone buy it? Does anyone know it exists?
3. What inspired you to write this novel?I have had the story of a spirit world intersection with the human world for several years. It wasn’t a new idea in the world of fiction, but I think my version of it may well be unique. I am inspired to tell stories and must admit that my daughters and my eldest sister inspired me with their reaction to the early chapters!
4. What do you think about when getting/seeing negative reviews?There haven’t been many. Once the agony subsides, I look at what they said and see if I can agree in any way. I try not to rationalize too much, but I also remember that there are many classics out there I hated; we all get an opinion.
5. How long was the writing/planning process? Planning was at least five years, but writing was only two months – this story wanted out out out!
6. What was your reaction to the cover art when you saw it for the first time? Did you have any ideas from the days of writing/inspiration? Loved the cover art. I did have ideas and my publisher (Dam Good Books) did a great job getting them into copy.
7. Any plans for future writing projects? Any being worked on now?Always! And yes, currently just finished two major novels and started a new YA series that could be a large project. I love the writing process.

9. Recommended books Go to Authonomy and find a new author. There are some fantastic writers there and mostly unpublished; it’s like your own private diamond mine.
10.Why read your novel? It will entertain you and make you think. It will take you on a ride through places you’ve never been before. It will make you laugh. It made at least one person cry. It will introduce you to peoples and ideas you haven’t had acquaintance with before; and isn’t that why we get up every day?
