O Hushed October Morning Mild


Welcome October, my favorite month of the year! It’s so beautiful that I keep looking out of the window instead of writing. But who can blame me?

There’s a lot going on this particular October—starting today with Halloweenpalooza! The 31 Days of Halloween are happening at

The amazing thriller author Wendy Potocki has created this event and all are cordially invited to join! There are prizes galore (including books from me) and a ghost-story competition with the winner grabbing a bag full of goodies! There are also guest blogs by some great authors, and interviews of them as well. I humbly reveal that mine is one of them. Please come by, no costume necessary!

My fellow Imajin author Jesse Giles Christiansen is still recruiting for his Skeleton Army. He’s celebrating the success of his novel Pelican Bay. Just click on the title to be taken to the Facebook Page.

FIRE AND SHADOW is going on a Bewitching Blog Tour October 21-25. I’ll have more details when I know the exact stops.

Now let me leave you with a poem from one of my favorite poets: Robert Frost. Thank you!

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.                                                          

...the bridge at Wolf's Creek...

…the bridge at Wolf’s Creek…

Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know.                                                              
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
one from our trees, one far away.
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes’ sake, if the were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost—
For the grapes’ sake along the all.

Interview with International Bestselling Author Cheryl Kaye Tardif

Cheryl&ChaiPageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00067]

Today’s guest is the author of many international bestsellers, Cheryl Kaye Tardif. Cheryl is visiting as part of her SUBMERGED Blog Tour, which runs March 15-24, 2013. And as part of the celebration for her new thriller, SUBMERGED, she’s got a 60-prize giveaway taking place on her blog. Welcome, Cheryl.

Thank you, Susan. It’s great to be visiting your blog. Have any questions for me?

What inspires you to write?

Novel plots are all around me. I “see” them when I’m watching TV, listening to the radio, out having dinner, watching people around me or just admiring the view. But all the voices in my head are mostly responsible for my writing. I know that makes me sound a bit schizophrenic, but I’m sure most writers can relate. When a character has something to say, they’ll only remain quiet for so long and then you HAVE to listen…and get writing.

Which writers have you been most compared to, and do you follow a formula?

According to reviewers, I am a mix of Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Margaret Atwood, Dan Brown, J.D. Robb, Luanne Rice, Stephen King, Michael Crichton…in other words, my works are very versatile, very unique and very different. I don’t write novels that are formulaic. I allow my characters to tell their stories, and there is always an element of suspense and sometimes a paranormal twist.

Tell us more about your books and the topics you’ve written about.

I write suspense mainly. I am drawn to mystery, so there’s an element of that in every book I’ve written, except maybe my marketing book.


Most of my fiction titles are international bestsellers. I’ve explored topics of addiction, alcoholism, kidnapping, ghosts, assisted suicide, racism, bullying, native folklore, psychics, serial killers, abortion, conspiracy, time travel, brain stem research, nanotechnology, multiple sclerosis, abuse, murder, greed and more.

What advice would you give to a novice or aspiring writer?

If you want to write, write. Don’t just “talk” about doing it. The more you write, the better you’ll get—especially if you ask for feedback. Learn the business of writing and publishing. Too many writers think all they need to do is write a good story. That’s just not true in today’s market. If you want to be successful you need to have a firm grasp of the business, of what it takes to make your book shine and stand out amongst all others. So take writing/editing courses, join writers’ groups, join a critique group (if you can’t take criticism you’re in the wrong business), and be sure you have a website, blog, Twitter and Facebook account BEFORE you query a publisher or agent.

Please share the back cover description of SUBMERGED.

Two strangers submerged in guilt, brought together by fate…

After a tragic car accident claims the lives of his wife, Jane, and son, Ryan, Marcus Taylor is immersed in grief. But his family isn’t the only thing he has lost. An addiction to painkillers has taken away his career as a paramedic. Working as a 911 operator is now the closest he gets to redemption—until he gets a call from a woman trapped in a car.

Rebecca Kingston yearns for a quiet weekend getaway, so she can think about her impending divorce from her abusive husband. When a mysterious truck runs her off the road, she is pinned behind the steering wheel, unable to help her two children in the back seat. Her only lifeline is a cell phone with a quickly depleting battery and a stranger’s calm voice on the other end telling her everything will be all right.

Get SUBMERGED today.
