Cover Reveal :: Transcend by Christine Fonseca

WOO HOO!!!! The day is here! The day celebrating the reveal of Christine Fonseca's Transcend, a YA psychological thriller hitting shelves on September 18, 2012. Here's a little blurb about the story:

All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is an escape from his family's rigid expectations for his life; someone to inspire his music. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his life music takes on new life. With her, he imagines a future outside of his parents’ control. That is, until a horrible accident tears them apart. Sent to die in a sanatorium, Ien’s obsession for Kiera grows unbearable. Tortured by thoughts he can’t escape and the truth of his monstrous disfigurement, he flees, desperate to exact revenge on the people that ruined his life – his parents. But, vengeance is empty. Betrayed by those closest to him, Ien discovers that the price for his happiness may be his sanity.
As part of the celebration, Christine is asking everyone to share a secret of their own. So, here's mine:
Besides Reading, I also love to Dance. I have 8 years of professional training in 'Bharatnatyam', an Indian Classical dance form and also trained in 'Creative Dance' (fusion of all dance forms from round the globe) for  over a year. Each year I have achieved distinction. In class, at functions and on stage am a confident performer. 
But what people do not know, even the ones closest to me, is that when there is no one around, I like to put on music, jump around randomly (like crazy) -- then call it 'dancing' ;) -- and that's what I love the most.

And now...what we've all been waiting for. The cover for Transcend:

As part of the celebration, Christine is asking everyone to tweet, participate in the blogfest and share your own secrets, or otherwise spread the word. Here are a couple of tweets linking to her post that you can use to help spread the word:

Special Feature :: Sadie S. Forsythe :: Interview

 “Forsythe creates a new and strange world, rich and complex in both its characters and history.”  ~~~ Heather Wissman on Amazon

Check Out:

An Interview with Ms.Forsythe
DDS: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m in my mid-thirties and married with two young children. I’m also a graduate student, so time is at a premium in my household. Writing is my personal escape. 

DDS: What got you into writing?
Reading, I’ve always been an avid reader and that just naturally progressed to writing.

DDS: This is you first publication, right? So how does it feel to be “Published”? Any unpublished work, written before `The Weeping Empress’ - that’s still somewhere in your drawers, that we should know about?
Yes, The Weeping Empress is my first publication and, of course, it feels great. I love seeing it in print and knowing that people all over the world could be reading it. A friend of mine will be working in the Antarctic this autumn and is taking a copy with her. It’ll have been read on every continent at that point. It’s an arbitrary goal I set for myself, but I’m pretty excited about it.
I have a number of notebooks with the basic outlines and a few strong scenes sketched out. That’s how a book always starts for me. But no complete unpublished works.

DDS: Tell us about `The Weeping Empress’.
It follows the exploits Chiyo Alglaeca (pronounced Chee-oh  Al-glay-ka) as she struggles to come to terms with finding herself in a strange new land, being declared a prophesied savior of the people, and grieving the loss of her family. To risk understating the affair, she isn’t entirely successful at any of the above and is mighty ticked off to boot.

DDS: What was the hardest part about writing this book?
It’s my first, so there was a fairly long lag between starting the writing process and believing that it would ever really come to anything. Making the mental transition from writer to legitimate published author was slow and difficult.

DDS: What are your writing pet peeves?
As a writer my biggest pet peeve is trying to get a scene on paper before it slips away and not having the time to dedicate to it.  There always seems to be something else demanding my attention. As a reader my biggest pet peeve is when a story is told in the first person without a reason. If the storyteller is recounting an event, testifying, or supposed to be writing a diary, etcetera I’m fine with it. But if I’m never given a reason for the POV choice I spend the whole time wondering why it is in first person. I find it really distracting.

DDS: What were your thoughts behind creating a character like Senka?
I didn’t really set out to create someone like Senka. The story grew around him and Chiyo almost of its own accord, but I think Senka really is the heart of this novel. While Chiyo is trying her hardest to throw everything away, he finds the missing piece of himself and sets out to bind her.

DDS: Who is your favourite Character? (one of your own creation – published/unpublished)
We were just talking about Senka. He is one of my all-time favorites. That strong, silent dedication is a characteristic I find really evocative in any character. It really isn’t a surprise that it crept into my own writing. I can’t help but love him for it though.

DDS: One thing readers would be surprised to know about you…
I actually am really shy in real life. I get all flustered and awkward meeting new people.

DDS: Besides writing, what else do you enjoy?
I have a disturbing number of obsessive, detail-oriented hobbies. To give two examples: like most writers I love to read. Leave me alone in a quiet room for hours on end and I am one happy camper.  I also occasionally make beaded jewelry. If you’ve ever made anything with Japanese seed beads, you’ll know what I mean.

DDS: What, according to you, is the USP of this book?
The Weeping Empress deals with people at their basest and most feral. That’s how I think of Chiyo as someone who, in her grief, has thrown off the shackles of modern domestication. It forces people to consider what their own reactions might be if they found themselves in the same untenable situation.

DDS: What is the one thing that you wish the readers take away after reading from `The Weeping Empress’?
I don’t think it is preachy, but I meant The Weeping Empress to question the nature of humanity’s relationship with the divine and the proper place of religious authority. I would hope that after reading it people stop and think about these questions.

DDS: What’s next?
While The Weeping Empress isn’t a cliffhanger there will be a sequel that addresses some of the hows and whys left open. I’m also rolling a traditional (non-sparkly) vampire story around in my head.

DDS: Anything else you would like to say to your readers/fans?
I appreciate every one of you. Knowing that people are reading my writing makes it all worthwhile. I also love hearing from you. Feel free to get in touch ask questions, give opinions, send artistic character depictions, etc.

I would also really like to thank you, D.D.S., for having me this month. I really enjoyed it.

About the Book
Doctors tell Raj that his son Emret won't survive his illness. As Raj struggles to prepare himself and Emret for the inevitable, he's confronted by Moslin, his son's nurse, who’s been filling Emret’s head with fairytales about heroic quests and powerful disease curing miracles. Emret now thinks that all he has to do is find the mythical Red Tree from the nurse's stories, and he'll live. In an attempt to protect his son from further emotional damage, Raj asks Moslin to stay away from Emret. He returns hours later to find them both missing. Now, he has to dig into the loathed fairytales to figure out where they may have gone. He’d also like to know why he keeps blacking out and having visions of a temple on a mountain with a vat of glowing weapons, a vaporous black creature emerging from a lightning storm, himself in glowing armor leading an army, and the same mythical Red Tree hidden in a dense forest.

Interview with the Author
DDS: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I live in South Jordan, Utah with my wife and three children. I graduated from film/animation school about ten years ago. Since then I've worked on a few live action films and a few animated films. Currently I'm the VFX supervisor at small production studio in Utah.

DDS: What got you into writing?  
I think the oldest, most concrete impression that I have of what I wanted to do with my life came from MTV's Liquid Television. When they first started, they showed animated shorts that were mind blowing cool, not like anything you'd see in a normal venue. The one I remember most was about a street sweeper who so aggressively cleaned his street that the reveal at the end showed that he'd been sweeping everything into the sewer. Cars, people, anything that left a mess. After watching these, a light turned on and I knew that was what I wanted to do. I wanted to write crazy little stories and then make them into short animations.
Well, I did. I made a six minute short about a friendly little man that lives in a bitter old man's thumb. That led to making a slew of live action short films (they're much easier to make.) Which led to wanting to make feature length live action films. I spent the next 5 years writing script after script after script. Unfortunately, the stories that I was writing, the stories that got me excited, were still the same kind of stories from those MTV Liquid Television animations. They were crazy and bizarre and impossible to make as a first time, low budget feature film.
Well after a few years I finally realized that all those stories that really didn't work as scripts would make fantastic Novels.   

DDS: Tell us about your book
Red Leaves and the Living Token was a story I started writing about ten years ago. I know this may sound dumb and a lot of people probably say this, but it’s the best way I can describe the origins of the story. I had this bizarre dream about a little glowing plant in the forest that had this thicket of underbrush protecting it. There were these warthog like people guarding it. And then there were these plant like people who attacked them to try and steal the plant as they all believed it was some sort of mythical creature.
Eventually that grew into the full story. The main characters and their plight grew around that core idea of an otherworldly being that was tangible for them. They worshiped it yet they could actually go and see it.

DDS: What was the hardest part about writing the book? 
The hardest part of writing the story was bringing it up to the level of realism and intrigue that I had felt in my dream. There the story had been so vivid and the purposes of the people and the relationships all made sense. It took me a long time and a lot of experimenting to build up the rest of the world so that it all fit together logically. 

DDS: What are your writing pet peeves?  
If I don't write consistently, I forget so much that it takes a great deal of time and effort to soak the story back up into my mind. I hate that.

DDS: Who is your favorite Character? (one of your own creation – published/unpublished) 
I'm going to say that I have a favorite character type rather than a specific character. I've found that I'm drawn to the characters who know how they should act or what they should do yet they struggle to actually do it. I relate to that.

DDS: Now time for some fun facts about you. If you were to be stranded on the famous ‘Deserted Island’, what three things would you want with you?
I think I tend to be a bit pragmatic. There's a machine that can convert the humidity in the air into drinking water. I'd want that with some solar panels to power it. Next I'd want a satellite phone with GPS so I could let people know I was stranded on a deserted island and then give them the GPS coordinates. I'd probably want a gun or a knife so I could kill some fish to eat. Oh, and a solar cooker to cook the fish. That's three, right?
DDS: If ‘End of the World’ was fast approaching and you were held responsible for choosing the 5 books to be saved… which 5 books would you choose?
I'm a bit religious, so if the end of the world was coming I'd definitely want things to keep my and everyone else's spirits up. I'd say the first would be scriptures. Wait... I think that's a movie. (Book of Eli)
The second book I'd want to save would be a printed copy of Wikipedia. Does that count? I think the encyclopedia Britannica went out of print. I could be wrong. Wikipedia would have a good cross section of human knowledge. Otherwise how would post-apocolyptic generations know who Justin Beber was.
The third book I'd want to take would be something very comprehensive about gardening. I imagine we'd all be growing our own food if society collapsed. My uncle lent me a book that had incredible detail about every possible facet of plant heal and food production. Like soil preparation, keeping bugs from killing plants, ect...
The Fourth book, I'd probably want something on constitutions, liberty and government. We'd need to form some kind of government with the survivors of the apocalypse. As you can see, I'm ill prepared for the end of the world. I don't know the exact titles.
The Fifth book would be some Tolstoy. Because if you only had one book of fiction, you'd want it to be the longest book possible.

DDS: One thing readers would be surprised to know about you…  
I'm six foot five.

DDS: Besides writing, what else do you enjoy?  
I have three kids. I love that I get to do stupid kid things again with them. It’s great, you get to make time in your day just to play.

DDS: What's the one thing that you want your readers to take away from this book?
Right and wrong is not a one-time event. People who do good things early in life can still ruin it later in life. People who do bad thing early in life can still turn around and make different choices. It sounds obvious to read, but I think in real life we're naturally quick to judge, and incredibly stubborn to change those judgments. I think that applies for ourselves as well. It’s hard to change our own self view. 

DDS: Anything else you would like to say to your readers/fans?
Thanks for reading! I'm working hard to kick out the next book in the Red Leaves series.

About the Author
Benjamin Burrell graduated from film school a little over a decade ago and has been writing screenplays and shorts ever since. He produced and directed of few of his stories as short films and won a handful of awards in film festivals across the country.
Due to the limited nature of screenplays, both in terms of length and feasibility of production, he decided to develop one his most intricate and expansive stories into the Novel, "Red Leaves and the Living Token." With its successful completion, he plans to bring many more of his stories to the Novel form, starting with two more, at least, in the "Red Leaves" series.
He currently lives in South Jordan, Utah, with his beautiful wife and three perfectly behaved children.

Guest Post :: Keira Telford - Silver:Acheron (A River of Pain)

About the Book

Dishonourably discharged from the Hunter Division and banished for crimes she did not commit, Silver struggles to come to terms with her new prison-like surroundings: a segregated area of the city called the Fringe District, populated by murderers, thieves and rapists. 
Starving, and desperate for money, she reluctantly accepts the Police Division's invitation to enroll in a covert Bounty Hunter program: an initiative devised to infiltrate the criminal underworld of the Fringers, and to force the very worst warrant dodging law-breakers to meet their fate—death.

Unfortunately, Silver doesn't realize that the Police Division is about to up the ante. They need more than little snippets of information and arrests—they need someone to pull the trigger.
They need an executioner.

Second Reclamation Territory
Amaranthe, 2342 CE
One Month Ago
It’s her job to kill monsters.
Chimera are the abhorrent result of an Old World catastrophe, and Silver is a trained Hunter. In the final months of the Second Reclamation, she kicks down the door into a large, crumbling room in some lost building in a forgotten corner of the Out District. Having been recently—and abruptly—re-designated as part of the Second Reclamation Territory, this area of abandoned Old World land represents a significant chunk of the unreclaimed city. Once taken back into human control, it will become an add-on to the expansion of the cramped and over-populated Sentinel District.
Silver’s sweep of this building is part of a final push to wipe out any stragglers left hiding in the shadows of the city’s dereliction, so that the rebuild can commence. With no working power supply, the room she finds herself in is dark, and it reeks of putrefaction.
Stepping confidently inside, her steel-toed Hunter Division boots leave temporary imprints in the puddles left behind from the leaking roof. She readies her PP-2000, a powerful submachine gun designed for close quarters combat. It’s a standard issue, basic weapon of survival for the Hunter Division.
The sound of her entrance has stirred a pack of starving Chimera from sleep, and she doesn’t hesitate to expend an entire magazine of bullets into their mutated flesh.
And, then … she waits.
One more step, then two.
Her boots now leave imprints in Chimeran blood as she makes her way deeper into the room, a strange noise in the far corner quickly drawing her attention.
No chance to explore it.
Headset crackles.
Her heart rate leaps from a sedate eighty to an adrenalin fueled one-oh-five in less than a second. The voice on the other end of the static is fellow Hunter, Rachel ‘Red’ Jenkins.
“Silver, what’s your status?” Red’s sultry voice echoes in the hollow shell of the room.
Silver ignores her, and keeps her eyes focused on a shape moving in the shadows. She flicks on her pocket flashlight and spills the beam over a bundle of ivory skin crouched against the wall.
More crackles.
“Silver? Status report? I heard shots fired,” Red persists.
Silver crouches down, resting on her heels in front of the vulnerable bundle—a naked woman. 

Guest Post
Do They Have Cows?

That’s one of the most important questions that anyone’s ever asked me: Do the people in my books have cows? It was posed by one of my early beta-readers, long before Acheron was written, back when The Lost & Damned was first reinvented as a novel (after spending the first six years of its life as a script).

The truth is: I had no idea what the people in my books ate. The apocalypse had wiped out 99% of all life on earth, so I concluded that they couldn’t possibly have any cows. Nor sheep, for that matter. Nor rabbits or chickens or pigs, and they certainly weren’t cannibals. I sat back and pondered this dilemma for a while, eventually concluding that they must eat Chimera.

Chimera are the grotesque by-product of a biological weapon gone wrong, and a nuclear war that destroyed all of human civilization as we know it. Now, several hundred years later, the Chimera prey upon humans and humans have learnt to hunt them. And since Chimera populate the Americas in numbers akin to racoons (or some other indigenous pest), meat is plentiful.

It was settled, then: Amaranthian humans hunt and eat Chimera.

But I didn’t stop there.

Where do my characters get milk? If they want to eat pancakes, or enjoy a milky cup of nettle tea, they need to have milk. The solution? Chimera are mammals. They can be milked just like cows or goats. Tallow candles can be made from their belly fat. All kinds of things can be carved from their bones, and their skin (which could be likened to elephant hide) can be used to make leather.

The point here is that you should never underestimate the importance of good world-building—especially if you’re writing sci-fi or fantasy. It’s like writing a book about a lawyer and having to familiarize yourself with legal process. Or writing a detective story and learning all about proper investigative procedure. You’d think it was a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised at just how many authors (and screenwriters, for that matter) seem to rely on a few impressive bells and whistles to mask the lack of depth and detail in their work. Perhaps the audience won’t notice how absurd it is that two scientists armed with high-tech mapping devices and constant radio contact with the rest of their crew manage to get themselves lost in a cave. If you keep them distracted with the big, shiny spaceship, everything is sure to be okay.

... Or not.

Whether you’re creating a new civilization, a planet, or an entire universe, the world your characters inhabit has to be just as vivid and complete as the world you live in. It has to make sense, and it has to be believable. If your characters are driving cars in a post-apocalyptic world, where are they getting their gasoline? Or is it gasoline at all? If it is, who’s drilling for oil when most of the world is dead?

The list could go on forever. You’re going to have to be creative, and do some careful research. If you’re going to explain how they’re manufacturing C-4 in a bathtub in a warehouse on the outskirts of town, you’d better not mess up the chemistry. (And I really hope I didn’t, else this is going to be really embarrassing later).

Spend as much time invested in creating your world as you do in fleshing out your characters. We all know that if readers can’t empathize with your characters, they’ll lose interest and stop reading. But if they aren’t fascinated by your world... well, they’ll get bored just as easily. It won’t matter that your protagonist is the most beautifully flawed hero anyone’s ever brought to life. If the world he or she resides in is paper thin and dull as dishwater, no-one’s going to give a monkey’s.

Here’s a thought to leave you with:
