Blog Tour & Giveaway for So...You Want to Write a Book by Christian Warren Freed


So...You Want to Write a Book
by Christian Warren Freed
Genre: Nonfiction, Self-Help

The plot—sketchy maybe—is in your head. Now, how do you pull it together into a book?

Christian Freed to the rescue with So . . . You Want to Write a Book, taking you on a helpful and entertaining trip from honing your idea all the way through to making your publishing decisions.

This is not your typical “how-to-write” reference book. Rather, it helps you think through your situations, shares ways to improve your writing, and prepares you for the inevitable author frustrations.

No two ways about it—after writing more than 25 books himself, Freed knows a thing or two. An award-winning, best-selling author of military fantasy fiction, Freed uses humor, real learning curve experiences, and practical wisdom to guide would-be writers via four easy-to-digest units (and yes, the E word is “edit"):

-- That Nagging Idea
-- Where the Magic Happens
-- The Dreaded E Word
-- Wrapping It Up in a Neat Little Bow

Though primarily focused on the art of fiction writing, So . . . You Want to Write a Book will also benefit nonfiction writers; either way, it’s a “from-the-head-to-the-page" thing.

So, are you finally ready to write the book that’s in your head? Start by reading this book!

Christian W. Freed was born in Buffalo, N.Y. more years ago than he would like to remember. After spending more than 20 years in the active duty US Army he has turned his talents to writing. Since retiring, he has gone on to publish 17 military fantasy and science fiction novels, as well as his memoirs from his time in Iraq and Afghanistan. His first published book (Hammers in the Wind) has been the #1 free book on Kindle 4 times and he holds a fancy certificate from the L Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest.

After narrowly escaping with her life, ace Detective Kamira Jackson is back on the beat in the small town of Shadowbank, Mississippi, to dig up dirt on a string of cold cases. Her second taste of Shadowbank crime is the mysterious drive-by shooting of straight-A student Annie Ainsworth ten years ago.

The Last Goodbye
Cold Case Chronicles Book 3

There are no coincidences when murder is afoot.

Once a prosperous estate, Hawthorne Plantation sat abandoned for years after the shocking death of wealthy newlywed Virginia Hawthorne in 1950. Discovered dead on the family estate grounds, the flames of suspicion were never quite extinguished after the disappearance of her husband, Allesandro.  New love makes us do funny things, but murder? An unclaimed estate only added to the mysteries surrounding Hawthorne Plantation. 

Enter Laura Remington, an ambitious young reporter, keen to make her mark on the world by uncovering the estate's secret past.   Bold and enthusiastic, she ran down all the leads two decades later. Perhaps getting a little too close to the truth, she is found dead under equally unsettling circumstances.  Another 50 years pass, and the trail may have run cold, but small towns talk and questions linger on.   Was this just another tragic accident, or is there a murderous web of lies still threatening to ensnare the next generation of truth-seekers?

Once again, Detective Kamira Jackson finds herself in the thick of things looking for answers in Shadowbank, Mississippi.  With her trusted partner, Terrance James, Kamira seeks out the counsel of Wynn Gunn, director of the local historical society and esteemed expert on all things Hawthorne-related.  Even without a living heir identified, the historical society has painstakingly worked to restore the estate to its former glory.

But Hawthorne Plantation isn't quite ready to give up all its secrets just yet.  History threatens to repeat itself when the very detectives who previously investigated Laura's death die inexplicably. Can Kamira turn up the heat on this cold case before she meets the same terrible fate?

Follow Kamira as she uncovers the hidden truths in her latest electrifying case, The Last Goodbye, book three in the Cold Case Chronicles series.

Book Blitz & Giveaway for An Italian Affair by Evie Baxter

An Italian Affair
Evie Baxter
Publication date: May 31st 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Having suffered through a recent humiliating break up, I wasn’t ready to dive back into the dating game. I thought I was off men, but then along came Sandro de Luca. Gorgeous temptation in a suit. I worked on a ship. He lived in Venice. There was no way a relationship could work between us. But a summer affair might be just what was called for.


My attraction to Ella had an incendiary chemistry that couldn’t be denied. She didn’t want a commitment. I wanted to imprint myself on her soul. I was determined to make her mine, even if life was continually throwing obstacles in my path. Some things were worth fighting for.

As we descended from the rooftop back to the restaurant, the feel of Sandro’s eyes on my back was visceral. The luncheon had been wonderful despite my momentary discomfort when he had touched my back and kissed my neck. He thought it was because I was leary of men after what Alex did to me. And maybe partly it was.

More like I was so overwhelmed by my reaction to Sandro that I didn’t know what to do. He was a stranger. I had barely known him a few hours. But when his knuckles brushed down the length of my spine, exposed by the design of the dress, my knees had weakened and my breath quickened. It had been so unexpected and so sensual. I just had to think about his actions and the hairs on my arms stood on end and my belly shuddered as I relived his touch.

His lips on my nape? Bloody hell! It was the lightest of touches but enough that I felt their firm press, his breath tickling the little hairs at the base of my hairline, the whisper of a sigh from his lips as they met my skin. The rasp of his beard tickling my nerve endings. I had felt my nipples tighten in response and the surge of heat that flowed through my body and straight between my legs was startling. If that was what the lightest of kisses could do, then what the hell would a full-on assault accomplish?

I didn’t think the man realised the power he had over me already. It was scary, and tantalising. It stirred my interest to find out more. It had been a long time since I had indulged in casual sex, not since my university days. Ships were a morass of gossip and sex, everyone knew everyone, and if you slept with someone it was almost guaranteed someone else on board had as well. There was no avoiding it, so I had been much more circumspect in my relationships since going to sea.

But would I consider breaking all my rules and having an affair with someone shoreside. I had never been tempted. Until now. Sandro brought out my sensual nature in a way that was impossible to ignore. The way I reacted to him was all the more obvious to me because not once had Alex stirred such physical responses in the time I spent with him.

Author Bio:

Evie lives in the countryside close to Oxford where she writes stories, accompanied by her eldest daughter's very fluffy cat. When not writing she can be found ignoring housework, reading voraciously, feeding her family and hanging out with the alpacas at the farm behind her house. Before settling in the countryside, she travelled the world working on cruise ships and doing stuff like jumping out of airplanes, cycling around South Pacific Islands and taking helicopters over glaciers and volcanoes.
