Tonight on the Write Stuff–Ayiti with Vacirca Vaughn

 

VaughnPromo

Dr. Ayiti Jean-Pierre is determined to travel back to the homeland that is her namesake, Ayiti–or “Haiti,” as it is known in English. When she was seven-years-old, Ayiti and her family were forced to flee the beautiful island to escape the political turmoil and poverty that was beginning to bring misery to the Haitian people.

She moves back to Haiti to provide volunteer medical services with a Christian Medical Missionary Group. Ayiti meets an English missionary, Pastor Jude Patterson.  Pastor Jude falls in love with her. Immediately, he pursues her, but Ayiti cannot get over the fact that he is white, seven years younger, and of a completely different cultural background.

Battling issues regarding race, spiritual beliefs, and age differences, the relationship between Ayiti and Jude is tested to the limits. Will Ayiti put aside her preconceptions and bitterness to give Jude a chance? Will she come to learn the truth about her spiritual beliefs and accept Jesus? Will Jude win Ayiti’s heart?

Special Edition of the Write Stuff–Beatitudes and Woes Speculative Fiction Anthology

 

bawOne day, about several months ago, in a Facebook group not so far away, an author posted this:

… I think it would be cool if someone organized a speculative anthology where each story is based on one of the 9 Beatitudes in Matthew or one of the 4 woes of Luke. 13 authors, each assigned/choosing one of those verses, expressing it in fantastical story form…

That author, CW Briar, had created a firestorm.

Immediately, interest piqued. Christian authors and readers jumped on the bandwagon on this wonderful idea. Of course! Why hadn’t many of us thought of it before? General online excitement ensured as authors clamored for a chance to be one of the ones selected for this project. After all, most of us could recite them forwards and backwards.

But had we ever had a chance to explore them in a deeper context? What better way to do that than through the universal language of story?

dragon

After thousands of years, Slayvin, a corrupted, soul-devouring black dragon has finally escaped imprisonment. The war for souls has begun.

As the flames of the Black Dragon’s War are fanned, Orcs, Dwarves, Elves, Humans, and more are left with a choice; forge unlikely alliances, or forfeit their souls.

In either case, the future is grim. It is a future of war. Axes are sharpened, bows are strung, and cryptic prophecies are examined for the one thing that is all but lost–hope.

tigerI am a firm believer that the Light shines brightest in the darkness. That’s not only WHAT I write, but also WHY I write.

I love to explore humanity through fantasy, because it allows us to take ordinary people (and orcs) through impossible situations and see what or who comes out the other side. It is often that through trials and tribulations that we get to see the most honest version of not only our charters, but ourselves. It is through this lens that we can discover truths. That is why I write dark, epic fantasy that dares to hope.

I am a Christian, husband, father of three young children, and a veteran. I have a BA in Communications. I was born and raised in Maine, and currently live in North Carolina. I love spending time in nature, and I especially enjoy hiking and swimming. When I’m not busy writing or chasing after my wife and kids, you can usually find me sneaking away for some quiet time with a good book. Some of the authors that inspire my writing are JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Brandon Sanderson, Steven Erikson, and Patrick Rothfuss.

Tonight on the Write Stuff–2085: The Rise and Fall of the Sisters with Christopher Weeks

2085

Above the smoldering ashes of a demolished patriarchy stand The Sisters and their ruthless ironclad rule. This is a world where men are the weaker sex and those who fail to comply with The Sisters’ draconian laws are sent to labor in the factories as muted drones; drugged cogs in a heartless nation’s machine.

Celebrity Vlogger and Fashion Icon Beck Paris’ life is turned upside down when she unexpectedly meets a daring man who is more than willing to challenge the supremacy of The Sisters. Beck’s surprising interest in this man places both of them in the cross-hairs of the power-obsessed leader of the State, Dr. Simone Gladstone.

Can their love survive? Will women and the feminist struggle for control finally reign supreme? Beck will have to decide if gaining love is worth the risk of losing her life.

tammyI am a Christian, mom, hairstylist/colorist, runner, and have always had a passion for writing. When I was a child I created/made up the character Renee. Many years later, my daughter was in a writing class, and one of her books talked about writing all your thoughts down, etc… And so, RENEE came to fruition on my Coral Word. RENEE has come a long way since I first started writing it seven years ago. It wasn’t until a few months ago, as I was starting book 2, that it came to be a trilogy. I give a lot of thanks and gratitude to Thomas J. Harvey. He helped me through the first book and gave awesome advice.
