About the AuthorWriting has always been a hobby of mine, beginning as a young child. It was a way to cope with losing my father at seven years of age. I started with poetry and was featured several times on the amazing poetry blog, Autumn Leaves, by Sondra Ball. My love for poetry soon led to writing songs in middle school and beyond, which I still do occasionally. Music has always been an important part of my existence, so writing songs came naturally to me. In high school, I started my own novel, however, life got in the way and I never finished it.

Fast forward many years later and I find myself married with three children, absorbed in my busy life with commitments to my family, work, school, church, and charities, among other things. One day I came across my old binder, with notes from my first novel, and it was with those notes that I conjured up the elusive Everealm.

I write to please readers such as myself, who have a love for fantasy and romance, but like a little danger and sex in their reading. I wrote the book with a mature audience in mind, who can appreciate a hearty imaginary world with magic and the unknown, but want more than fluffy love stories with wizards in them. They want the romance, magic, and danger, all wrapped into one.

So… has he asked you to do it, yet?” Sidonie asked, nodding her head toward where Reeve was sitting behind her.
Bree frowned and started toying with her long auburn hair which was braided to the side today.
Just this morning, actually,” she replied, then leaned in closer to keep their conversation private. “Is it wrong that I told Reeve I would send for the mysta, but didn’t? Just to give it more time?”
I am heartbroken, too. For the both of them. They look miserable. I really hoped the situation would work itself out, but you can’t force it, Bree. No one can. If Reeve and Rhea want to absolve the marriage, who are we to interfere?”
Even though Sidonie said the words, she didn’t entirely mean them. If she could find a way to fix things, herself, she probably would. So Bree’s notion of delaying the mysta wasn’t a terrible idea.
I’ve interfered plenty,” Bree said, smiling slightly. “Why stop now?”

Writing Playlist for Blood Moon

By: J.D.

I have a strangely diverse taste in music and have favorites in nearly every genre (except disco… I really dislike disco). My playlists usually have country, rock, pop, oldies, and everything between. If a song has powerful lyrics, I could care less about the rhythm. However, I can also overlook the lyrics entirely if the beat is nice. Prime example: The Hills by The Weekend. I have no clue what that song is about but when the beat drops… so do my standards, apparently. ;)

I listened to a lot of music over the approx. 2 months it took to write and edit this book. Here is a short sample of what was on my writing playlist during the evolution of Blood Moon:

~ Switchfoot – Dare You to Move
~ Taylor Swift – Wildest Dreams
~ Little Mix – Black Magic
~ Nickelback – Savin Me
~ Brooks & Dunn – My Next Broken Heart
~ Ed Sheeran – Give Me Love
~ Celine Dion – Taking Chances
~ Taking Back Sunday – Slowdance on the Inside
~ Reba McEntire – Till You Love Me
~ Blackhawk – Almost a Memory
~ Cold War Kids – First
~ Taylor Swift – Red

Blood Moon Teaser Quotes

Finding excerpts to share from Blood Moon was difficult because I didn’t want to spoil anything for those who haven’t had an opportunity to read it yet. However, here are several teaser quotes from the book that may hint toward plotlines but do not give too much away. (I hope!) ~J.D.

~ Gabby gaped at her. “I know the queen likes to read stories to you, but you don’t actually believe them. Do you? There isn’t always a brave knight to come and save you.”

~ “Who are you?” he demanded. “And don’t lie to me. Did my father send you to track me? Are you a spy?”
I am no spy,” she spat, pulling her arm away. “And even if I were a spy, I wouldn’t tell you. That would make me a terrible spy.”

~ “What are you doing here? Shouldn’t you be at the castle?” she shouted.
Why are you here? You should be at the castle. It’s your wedding day,” he shouted back.
It’s your wedding day, too. Yet, you’re out in the forest, riding a horse.”
And what are you riding, Princess? A ghost?”

~ “Are you hiding from your horse?”
Don’t be judgmental. This is my last apple.”

~ “I’ve met plenty of princesses before,” he said, “but I’ve never kissed one.”

~ “Sid, I’ve been thinking about something,” he began.
Oh, no. Why do I have a feeling that you are about to say something I will not like?”
Because I am.”

~ “I can’t believe you agreed to this,” Rowan said, laughing. “This is the most insane idea that I have ever heard. And I have heard of some fairly ridiculous ideas. Even thought up a few of them, myself.”

~ “For a man with such confidence, Dagan, I am getting a small thrill watching you squirm.”
