Five Book Facts and A Game of Tag – The Saga Continues…

Five Book Facts and A Game of Tag

A while back my friend Magen McMinimy tagged me to do a post about my dream cast for my book The Gathering: Book One of the Lia Fail Chronicles and then tag 5 authors to do the same, and in typical “Shannon Fashion”, I dropped the ball. So now Author Michael Loring has come up with something similar, but instead of with a dream cast you have to share FIVE facts about your book that no one else would know, followed by tagging four other authors to do the same with their book of choice!

A very simple game, but nonetheless fun!

Let’s get started!

1) All about your most recent or current release:

2) Share FIVE facts about your book: Since my book is The Gathering, I’ll answer questions about that 😉
1. It took eight and a half years to write and publish The Gathering.
2. The Merganser family was originally named the Mortaver, Madison was originally Tuner, Brian was originally Grant (named after his godfather) and Paul was originally named Ian.
3. Vance and Stephan were originally slated for death.
4. I had no idea how it was going to end when I began writing it.
5. The Gathering was originally slated to be 3 individual books, now it’s the first in a series of a minimum of 4 novels and so far 3 compendiums and a Diary full or prequel.
3) Tag FOUR other Authors:
Ok, now go forth and let’s learn and tag… you’re it!!!

This collection of thriller stories started as a contest on Cynthia Shepp Book Reviews & Editing’s Facebook page. The authors were given the following guidelines:

This anthology will have a main theme of Stalkers. That is about where my direction stops. It does not have to be paranormal, though it can be. The story can be a psychological thriller, horror, paranormal, suspense, action…whatever you want it to be. You can have a demon stalking someone in their dreams or a serial killer stalking prey, just to give you a couple examples. Whatever your twisted minds can come up with. I want stories that have you looking in the backseat of your car before you get in—stories that make the little hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you think someone looked at you just a little too long. Let your imaginations flow free and DELVE into the DARKER side of your mind…You know you want to.

What happened next will shock even you…

These seventeen authors came up with completely unique stories that cross all spectrums and genres. Creepy tales that will truly have you on high alert. This is one collection that you do not want to miss. It has something for everyone!

Runaway King by Nicole Clark

There are always things in a marriage that cause the couple to place distance between each other. But, what happens when you try to fix that marriage, you end up having to try and save yourself and your friends instead?

Josh is trying to fix his marriage all because he let other things come between him and his precious wife. The closer he comes to making things right with her, he finds someone is out to stop him from not only fixing his marriage, but continuing to live all together—someone who is close to him, but only for the simple purpose of making sure that Josh isn’t caught off guard. His life is in danger and so are the lives of his best friends. He’ll stop at nothing to get his marriage back to how it was before, even if it means using a little violence.

**Contains some adult situations and violence as well as language.**

I’m just like anyone else. I have everyday problems that never seem to go away and I bury myself in a good book when I need an escape. My second escape would be writing. I love the paranormal and everything I write seems to revolve around something paranormal. Some of my best ideas come from sitting and just talking to a friend (or two) and then they just pop up. Never underestimate the ability to get an idea from an everyday situation.
