Tonight on Write Stuff — Asterion with Kenneth Morvant

5129Bej6P0LThe world of the near future. Dictatorships still exist. One such place is America. The America of the past is not the America of the future. Fear and uncertainty has led to a leader for life who has taken control of everything. Every business, private organization and even religion is under his control.

The common apathy has led to austerity. Control is tenuous at best, but it will be maintained, at any and all costs. Taylor Scott, scientist desires to turn his experience creating military technology into an ambitious humanitarian project that will alleviate the shortages and improve life for the citizens by creating a semi-intelligent beast of burden capable of performing agricultural tasks. Plentiful food, better quality of life for the citizens and reduced fossil fuel consumption are the benefits. However, the leader for life has another plan, a sinister purpose for the beasts. His operatives on the inside modify the experiment and steal Taylor’s intellectual property to create a beast that is battle ready and can wield the power of the leader without reservation and with no remorse.

Miscalculation?

No, cold calculation.

Mistake?

No, total domination of the populace is within grasp.

Taylor continues the experiment with the help of fellow scientist, Christine Summers who shares his interests and their interest in each other grows. Unknown to them, their subject will not be the work beast they intended. No, he will be much more.

The experiment is a success, and their creation is not alone.Taylor and Christine must now destroy what they have created. Pursued by their experiment and the leader, they join forces with the freedom fighters and help them win their liberty from tyranny and its unfeeling beasts of war.

Playing God has its consequences.

817TMT5J35L._UX250_.jpgA life-long science fiction fan, I grew up with all the old movies and TV when your imagination had to be larger than the special effects budget. While they lacked that, they did tell compelling stories. Names such as Heinlien,Asimov, Matheson, Serling are just a few influences from the old school. Newer authors include Tom Clancy,Stephen Coonts and Michael Crichton.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Knit Together with Vivian Kay

51c2bxgxxmlAfter Marigold Shadd’s parents disappeared during a mission trip, she and her sister Ixora moved to Mapleville, a rural community on the shores of Lake Erie.
Their grandmother Annabelle “Big Momma” Henson adored them but Marigold had lost faith in everything including God.
Marigold’s best friend Logan van Basten became the silver lining in her life. Days after their high school graduation, they ran off to New York and took up cruise ship jobs.
Time may heal all wounds but the decade spent at sea didn’t fill the void in Marigold’s heart.
When Logan revealed that his wife Alena was unable to carry a child and asked Marigold to become their surrogate mother, she said yes.
Marigold saw Logan’s request as an opportunity to prove her sister Ixora wrong. Ixora had always said she was selfish. What could be more redeeming than her carrying a baby for a woman she didn’t even like?

PEN AND PAPER: AN INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR PARKER J. COLE

Check out my interview below with Urban Image Magazine as I talk about writing, dogs, and publishing.

Award winning author Parker J. Cole not only enjoys fascinating her readers with amazingly interesting stories, she also loves hosting her own radio show. The wife and mother of her dog, Sarah, reside in Michigan.  There she knits, cooks, writes and reads other captivating novels.

Jamantha Williams Watson: Welcome Parker. It is a pleasure to have you today as our guest.   As a radio host, entrepreneur and author, you have achieved quite a bit in your career. Please tell us more about yourself.

Parker J. Cole: Thanks first and foremost for allowing me to interview with you today. Officially, I’m the author of the edgy Christian romance Sins of the Flesh series as well as the executive of the new PJC Media Network. I’ve been a host of a couple of years but now I have created my own online broadcasting network which I’m really excited about. As an author, I’m working to produce more books and am branching off into one of my first loves of writing, speculative fiction. I’m doing that as an honor to my grandmother who was the original geek in the family long before anyone else. I can’t tell you how many old sci-fi movies we watched in her room on the weekends. She taught me how to read and write and cultivated a love for reading. That’s the official answer for who I am. Unofficially, as I like to say, I’m a diehard Trekkie (TOS), sci-fi lover, fantasy dweller, romance junkie, anime freak, old movie buff, church-goer, off and on Mountain Dew and marshmallow recovering addict who writes to fill the void the sugar left behind.

Jamantha Williams Watson: Haaaa, and you’re quite a lively personality, I might add. Please tell us, what was the defining moment that catapulted your writing career?

Parker J. Cole: The defining moment was when I lost my job back in 2010. I worked in a high pressure environment for three years. By the time I lost my job, my left eye had started to twitch every day. When I was let go, that very day until now, my left eye hasn’t twitched. Now that I had time at home, I realized that I had my first book still on my computer. I’d spent ten years writing and rewriting this book and it had never seen the light of day. I remember being in my apartment and staring at the screen saying, “No more waiting. This will get published.” I utilized the services of a vanity press (which I would not recommend by the way, looking back) and when my book, “Dark Cherub” was published, I bawled like a baby. No longer was it a dream, this was reality.
