Giveaway: What’s your favorite part of a book?

Romantic fantasy has opened up a whole new writing world for me. I love the creative license of world building. You could get a god complex from this! I invented a whole new race of people for the purpose of my Synchronicity story. I’m playing with the rules of physics. And I’ve liberally mixed existing mythology with made up mythology.

It’s fun.

And it’s got me started thinking about what makes a good book. Is it the characters? The backstory? The action? The romance? Great dialogue?

Giveaway time! Judging a book by its cover

I have a lot of gorgeous book covers, but I’m particularly loving the covers for my Synchronicity series. There’s just something about the way they each have their own character. Of course, they were all designed by Farah Evers Designs, but I like to think I had something to do with their beauty. I’m curious, though, which one is the best? Do you have a favorite? An opinion? I love the cover for “Strange Path” because it’s a little simpler than the others, but the Raven Mocker on the front of Out of Time and the book on Time Being are so perfect for those books.

Leave me a comment telling me which your favorite book cover is within the next hour and I’ll send you a coupon code for a free copy of Time Being from Smashwords!

The art of action in Time Being

I had great fun writing action scenes in Time Being. This may be the most action-packed book I’ve written so far. Fighting, supernatural beings, and threats galore! Plus a smattering of physics, which is something I know very little about but if you’re going to write science fiction, you better be able to fake it. Two excerpts today illustrate the action content of Time Being. The first is Jack’s first encounter with Drake, Kaelyn’s long-lost uncle who’s not terribly happy about being found.

I’ll leave it there so you’ll be eager to find out how, exactly, Jack manages to get out of this one. But one more scene, this one featuring Kaelyn and the Raven Mocker you might remember from Out of Time
