Tuesday Round Up Presents~ A Unique Love: SEISMIC CRIMES by Chrys Fey #mfrwauthor #hurricaneromance

Osiyo~

I have my friend Chrys Fey back to tell us about her newest book release. I can’t wait to get this series when my budget allows some new books. 😀

Welcome Chrys!

Thanks for inviting me back, Calisa! I’ll jump right in.

SEISMIC CRIMES by Chrys Fey

My characters in the Disaster Crimes Series have a unique love. They didn’t know each other in high school or hate each other when they first met. Oh, no. Donovan was a suspected murderer, and Beth couldn’t decide if he was guilty or not. And they fell in love in the unlikeliest, strangest way: during a hurricane and while trying to prove Donovan’s innocence. When you go out on a limb for someone and do what you never thought you would, you are in love and the biggest form of love possible.

Beth loves Donovan despite his title of a suspected murderer, despite the fact that he could be convicted, and despite being possibly named an accomplice to a crime. The love they share is selfless. It doesn’t care about their circumstances. And neither do they.

Beth and Donovan are willing to fight, kill, and die for each other. No disaster can keep them apart. No criminal can destroy them. In a way, their love is indestructible. It’s their love that gets them through the danger I throw at them. And everything they go through only makes their bond greater, stronger, purer.

Beth’s Unique Love:

  • Beth goes undercover to help Donovan prove his innocence.
  • She washes his hair in the shower when he’s injured.
  • She kisses Donovan in the exact spot where he had his first kiss so her kiss in that place will be the only one he’ll remember.

Donovan’s Unique Love:

  • Donovan tells his mom that Beth saved his life.
  • He covers a dead snake because he knows Beth is terrified of them.
  • He gives Beth a bracelet with a charm that symbolizes how they fell in love.

EXCERPT:

Resigned to her battered looks, she finished washing her hands and rejoined Donovan in the front of the department. She lowered herself into the chair beside him, her muscles sighing when the cushions molded to her aching back. She angled her body toward him. “Aside from not being able to do anything about Buck at the moment, what do we do now?”

“We?” Donovan tilted his head at her. “You don’t need to be a part of this anymore, Beth. You’re off the hook…if you want to be.”

She looked at him, not believing he could dismiss her so easily, especially after their intimacy. If she were a logical woman, his words would relieve her. She’d cut all ties and forget about everything that happened, but she couldn’t do that. She was changed forever by Hurricane Sabrina. Her life was changed forever by the man in front of her. “Donovan, this isn’t over yet. Not by a long shot. I’m in it to the end.”

Donovan took her hand, rubbed her knuckles with the pad of his thumb. “Thank you.”

A happy warmth spread through her at the sweet contact. “So, what do we do now?”

***

BLURB:

An Internal Affairs Investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane—Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.

Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.

When a tip reveals the killer’s location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?

Calisa Rhose~Tuesday RoundUp presents~ Chrys Fey #ghosts #mfrwauthor

Osiyo~

Welcome one and all! Grab a beverage of choice, something sweet and sinful. No-no, not the men. What’s the matter with you? You know the hands-on rules… The guest gets first pick! 😉 Take a comfy seat for another, or a first, spin in the Round Pen.

I’m thrilled to welcome my wonderfully talented guest today, Chrys Fey, who is sharing her eBook, Ghost of Death with us!

chrysfeypicPlease show ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Chrys some real Ranch love!

Before I get to the nosy 5-3-4 part of this interview, tell us a bit about you.

My name is Chrys Fey and in case you’re wondering…that is a pen name. Chrys came from a nickname that my oldest friends call me, but I changed the spelling to make it more mystical. And Fey is a nickname used for a person thought to have supernatural qualities. Since the books I’ve been writing half my life all have supernatural elements, I thought Fey was perfect. And that is how “Chrys Fey” was born.

I love how you came up with your name! Okay, I’ll begin with five questions, then follow with three more, and end with four final ones.

My writing area at the moment is a corner of the couch in my living room. What does your writing space look like?

It’s a lot better since I was last at the Ranch and answered this question. It’s in a corner of my bedroom now next to a window with a lovely view of the tree in the front yard of my new house.

I love new houses. I’ll be moving into a new office soon too. For a lot of writers it’s a life-altering event coming up with titles and character names. Others it comes as naturally as breathing. Which is it for you?

It’s usually easy for me, but the title of “Ghost of Death” was originally Diary of a Dead Girl. Since I didn’t write it in the form of a diary and I’m also publishing “Witch of Death” later this month, I changed it. As for my characters’ names, the characters in “Ghost of Death” are named after people, so that was easy. *wink*

What advice would you offer aspiring and new writers?

Keep writing.

Keep dreaming.

Keep believing.

The constant shift of the industry makes me often scratch my head and ask ‘what next?’ So, what do you think it takes to be a successful author at the moment?

Do not overwhelm yourself. Stick with a few social media sites you like and stay active on

them, do a little marketing every day or at least a few times a week, and write no matter

what obstacles this ever-changing industry throws your way.

Oh, that’s good advice. Who would you like to meet in the publishing industry- dead or alive- and why?

J.K. Rowling. I’d like to have tea and biscuits with her and to talk about writing, books, and life in general.

It’s time for 3 in 1! I’ll ask the questions and you answer them in one word. 😆

Favorite animal?

TOO MANY!

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter?

Fall

Favorite food?

Italian

Well done! 🙂

Okay, Flash four. Ready?

What are you working on now?

Well, I’m going to be sending my publisher the sequel to Hurricane Crimes (with fingers crossed) very soon and I am working on book three! 😀

I have my copy of both these books and can’t wait to read them (some day). LOL What are you sharing today?

Ghost of Death!

GhostofDeath05.05.15

Jolie Montgomery, a twenty-one-year-old woman, wakes up in an alley next to her corpse. She has no memories of her murder or the night she died. She didn’t even see the killer’s face before he or she took her life. Wanting justice, Jolie seeks answers in the only way a ghost can…by stalking the lead detective on the case.

Avrianna Heavenborn is determined to find the person responsible for a young woman’s death. She gets closer to the killer’s identity with every clue she uncovers, and Jolie is with her every step of the way.

But if they don’t solve her murder soon, Jolie will be an earth-bound spirit forever.

I love her name. Where can we find you and your books?

Amazon US / Amazon UK / The Wild Rose Press / NOOK / KOBO

Where will you be next?

Tomorrow I am visiting Julie Flanders. On Thursday, I’ll be stopping by Christine Rains’

blog. And Friday I’ll have fun posts at the blogs of Marlow Kelly, Medeia Sharif, and Kelly Hashway.

WitchofDeath-CFWitch of Death is also available for PRE-ORDER! 🙂

Detective Reid Sanders doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but when he’s faced with a crime scene that defies the laws of nature, he has no other choice but to start believing. And solving a magical murder involves working with a witch.

Liberty Sawyer embodies the look of your classic evil witch, so, it’s no surprise when she uncovers the murderer is a witch that she becomes Reid’s number one suspect. If she can’t convince him otherwise, more people could lose their lives to dark magic, including her.

VOTE: Which do you prefer? Ghosts or witches.

I’ll go with ghosts. 🙂

Thank you, Calisa! I love visiting the Ranch! 😀

And the Ranch loves having you, Chrys!

Don’t forget to place your vote of witch or ghost in comments.

Calisa Rhose and Tuesday Roundup presents ~ 30 Seconds by Chrys Fey #MFRWAuthor #romanticsuspense

Osiyo~

Welcome one and all! Grab a beverage of choice, something sweet and sinful. No-no, not the men. What’s the matter with you? You know the hands-on rules… The guest gets first pick! 😉 Take a comfy seat for another, or a first, spin in the Round Pen.

chrysfeypicI’m thrilled to welcome my wonderfully talented guest today, Chrys Fey, who is sharing her book, 30 Seconds with us!

Please show ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Chrys some real Ranch love!

Before I get too nosy, tell us a bit about you.

My writing area at the moment is a corner of the couch in my living room. What does your writing space look like?

My writing area is also in my living room. I have my desk positioned in a corner where I can look out the window and my back is to the rest of the room. Right now my desk is decorated in the spirit of autumn, but soon it’ll look like a winter wonderland.

For a lot of writers it’s a life-altering event coming up with titles and character names. For others it comes as naturally as breathing. Which is it for you?

Naming my books and characters comes easy to me. Usually. For a long time I referred to 30 Seconds, my romantic-suspense novella, as another title based after my characters’ last names. My heroine is Dani Hart and my hero is Blake Herro, so I thought I’d call their story, Hearts and Heroes, but I changed my mind when my favorite band, Thirty Seconds to Mars, inspired me.

Interesting. What advice would you offer aspiring and new writers?

Never give up! There were many times when rejections got me down and I wonder ask, “When will it be my turn?” But I continued to push toward my dream, knowing that I wouldn’t have the story ideas circulating in my head if I wasn’t meant to publish them. And I believe the same for you!

Always sound advice. Persistence is key, but the constant shift of the industry makes me often scratch my head and ask ‘what next?’ So, what do you think it takes to be a successful author at the moment?

At the moment, social media presence…If you’re not on at least 1-2 social media sites then readers won’t know about you, and you want readers to know about you!

I agree. As much as I don’t get, so don’t particularly like, social media, we have to put our best foot forward. We have put ourselves out there each day. That part I don’t mind. 🙂

Who would you like to meet in the publishing industry- dead or alive- and why?

JK Rowling. I’d love to sit with her talk about writing, our books, and life over a cup of tea. She seems like a wonderful person who I’d get along with real well.

It’s time for 3 in 1! I’ll ask the questions and you answer them in one word. 😆

Favorite animal? Giraffe

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter? Fall

Favorite food? Pasta

Well done! 🙂

Okay, Flash four. Ready? YES!

What are you working on now?

Currently I am working on the sequel to Hurricane Crimes and a short story for readers who enjoy 30 Seconds.

What are you sharing today?

My romantic-suspense novella 30 Seconds.30Seconds_ChrysFey11.18.14

When Officer Blake Herro agreed to go undercover in the Mob, he thought he understood the risks. But he’s made mistakes and now an innocent woman has become their target. He’s determined to protect her at all costs.

The Mob’s death threat turns Dr. Dani Hart’s life upside down, but there is one danger she doesn’t anticipate. As she’s dodging bullets, she’s falling in love with Blake. With danger all around them, will she and Blake survive and have a happy ending, or will the Mob make good on their threat?

Where can we find you and your books?

30 Seconds can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, KOBO, and The Wild Rose Press.

And I can be found on Facebook and Goodreads. I also have a blog called Write with Fey.

Where will you be next?

On Thursday I’ll be visiting Barbara Edwards, another Rose from The Wild Rose Press.

Chrys Fey’s Question: If the Mob was after you, what would you do and where would you go to stay safe?

Ooh, great question. I’m going to wait to see what others say. 🙂

Thank you so much for playing along, Chrys! Wishing you much luck with your book and writing. I hope you’ll come visit again one day.

Friday FanFare welcomes ~ Chrys Fey with Hurricane Crimes

Hurricane Crimes

chrysfey02.28.14

Hi Chrys. Welcome to the Ranch!

How did the writer’s journey begin for you?

My journey began at a very young age. I wrote my first story when I was six, which I still have. I became a serious writer at twelve after a strange find sparked the idea for a series of books. I later rewrote these books, and I was searching for an agent to represent them when I sent Hurricane Crimes to The Wild Rose Press. I count myself very lucky, but I still hope to publish my supernatural-thriller series one day.

Tell us three things about you-the writer-readers wouldn’t typically know.

1. I had spine surgery when I was fifteen, so I can seriously say I am a woman of steel. 😉

2. Last year, I donated 14 inches of hair to Locks of Love.

3. I rescued four stray kittens.

Those are very interesting facts!

It all began when…

Hurricane Frances visited Florida back in 2004 and Tropical Storm Fay came and didn’t want to leave in 2008. I was inspired greatly by Tropical Storm Fay and even wrote a song while she was causing floods, but Hurricane Frances by far impacted me the most. I always knew something would come out of her reign of stormy chaos. It was only a matter of time.

Where did you get the premise for this book?

I started writing Hurricane Crimes on Christmas morning 2011. I had just finished reading a book set during a blizzard and pondered the fact that I had never been in a snow storm because I live in Florida, so the idea to write a story that really focuses on a hurricane immediately became my goal. Although I wanted Hurricane Crimes to be a romance, I didn’t want it to be a typical romance. Thus, I created Donovan, a sexy and passionate man who may be a murderer.

What stands out about this story that made writing it different for you?

I really wanted the hurricane in Hurricane Crimes to be one of the essential characters, but I had never created a character before that wasn’t alive in the way that human beings and animals are, so it was a challenge to make a force such as a storm into a character that readers could identify with on a human level. I think I did a good job though.

Were there any difficult challenges or special subject matter you came across while writing this book?

In the beginning I did have a problem with the POV because there were moments when I wanted readers to know Donovan’s suspicious thoughts, but since the story is in Beth Donovan’s perspective I had to omit it. I think it came out better though because it made Donovan even more mysterious.

What about this book would make us want to read it more than others of similar taste?

There are many romantic-suspense stories out there, but not a lot are set in Florida during a hurricane. And if they are, they probably don’t have a murder mixed with the romance and extreme weather.

What do you want readers to take away from this book?

Strength comes when you least expect it, and so does love.

Tell us about the finished book. Is there anything special we might not know after reading it?

I am a huge advocate of domestic violence awareness, and with Hurricane Crimes I had the opportunity to give one of my passions to Beth Kennedy, a tough woman who is a self-defense instructor.

Blurb:

After her car breaks down, Beth Kennedy is forced to stay in Florida, the target of Hurricane Sabrina. She stocks up supplies, boards up windows, and hunkers down to wait out the storm, but her plan unravels when she witnesses a car accident. Risking her life, she braves the winds to save the driver. Just when she believes they are safe, she finds out the man she saved could possibly be more dangerous than the severe weather.

Donovan Goldwyn only wanted to hide from the police, but the hurricane shoved his car into a tree. Now he’s trapped with a beautiful woman while the evidence that can prove his innocence to a brutal crime is out there for anyone to find.

As Hurricane Sabrina wreaks havoc, Beth has no other choice but to trust Donovan to stay alive. But will she survive, or will she become another hurricane crime?

HurricaneCrimesExcerpt:

On the television set, which was fighting to stay alive, was breaking news. She caught bits and pieces of it as she emptied the bowl of blood-tainted water and threw out the cloth. It was about a high-speed chase that had occurred about a half-hour ago. Beth shook her head. Apparently, Donovan wasn’t the only idiot driving around during a hurricane.

She went back into the living room and began replacing all the medical supplies into the first-aid kit. Behind her, a reporter was explaining that the driver of the car was believed to be a murder suspect.

“The name of the—”

The lights flashed, prompting Beth to snatch up her flashlight.

“Donovan Goldwyn.”

Her fingers went cold around the plastic tube as ice frosted her veins. She straightened her spine and turned stiffly to the television, her heart wasn’t beating in her chest. On the screen was the picture of the man who was right now changing in her bedroom. Above it was a caption in bold letters that read—SUSPECT.

She gripped the flashlight in her frozen fingers. Her heart thudded fearfully. She stared into the immobilized violet eyes through the glass.

“Oh my god,” she gasped.

She had brought a murderer into her home!
