Cool Writing Articles, Upcoming Authors, My Recent Interviews, and Catching Up! :)

Hi everyone!

Man, it turned chilly here in Maryland! I was getting spoiled with those hot, steamy days and warm nights. Come back hot weather…I miss you! 🙂

Today I want to share some cool writing articles that fell into my lap.

Plus, I want to share with you some recent interviews I have done.

As it stands now, I have authors lined up to interview through the next month. After that, I am going to be concentrating solely on my writing for awhile.

I will continue to blog on both of my blogs, THE MAIN ARTERY and LICK AND A PROMISE. My latest book, “Lick and a Promise” will be coming out soon and I need to concentrate on that.

I will also still be hosting authors on my Lick blog as well as ROCK STAR WEDNESDAY.

So, I hope you enjoy the info today! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! 🙂

FROM SELF~PUBLISHING TO AGENTED AUTHOR…AWESOME ARTICLE!!!

Hi Everyone!

Well, it was in the 60’s today here in Maryland, not bad for a January day! I took Kurgan and Harley out and played ball with them in the back yard. We had a blast!

I came across another cool article that I really enjoyed and I wanted to share it with you. It gave me a lot of hope as a self~published author and I hope it helps you too.

It’s called From “Self-Published Success to Agented Author.” Check it out!

http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/guide-to-literary-agents/from-self-published-success-to-agented-author?et_mid=531839&rid=3095933

I watched the movie “DEVIL”  last night which is about five people who get trapped in an elevator and soon discover, to their horror, that one of them is the devil! Ouch! It had some scary scenes that had me putting the covers over my eyes. Yes, yes, even though I write that stuff, I still get freaked out. If I don’t write it, I have no control over it! That’s why my characters don’t scare me, well sometimes they do but I tell them to cool it and they usually listen since they need me to tell their story! 🙂

AUTHOR INTERVIEW/GUEST BLOGS

February and March are totally filled now and I am looking for authors for April. Man, the year is going by so fast it seems. If you are interested, please see my contact info below.

MONTHLY CONTEST

It’s almost time to open up my monthly contest starting in February! Every month I will be giving away a FREE copy of one of my books, your choice.

The choices are (these will be repeated later)

THE RAINBOW WON’T WAIT

A dying mother’s advice for the obstinate daughter she is leaving behind.

When the author lost her mother in 2006, she could have been a better daughter. She tried to be the daughter that her mother wanted and needed at this time of sorrow but she didn’t know how to be that person.

In a collection of short pieces of advice, the author has put together words of comfort and wisdom that her Cherokee mother gave her over the years. She never knew at the time, that this advice would help her as she took care of a dying parent. It also served as a catalyst to help her regain her footing after a series of tragedies following her mother’s death, left her in a crippling, suicidal depression for three years.

A story of hope, inspiration and how a briar of a child became the flower that her mother always dreamed of…but died before she got a chance to see her bloom.

PUNCTURE

PUNCTURE

A hauntingly beautiful tale about vampire love and betrayal between a mortal and an undead.

Craving a taste for the dark side, Veronica gets more than she bargained for when she is seduced by Victor, an evil and dangerous vampire. His obsession with her runs her off the road to Heaven and soon she too will turn her back on righteousness.

Longing to be mortal again and trapped in the darkness of an immortal life, she struggles with knowing right from wrong, Heaven from Hell, and love from hate.

But when she discovers the truth about her dark prince, will it be too late? Will her new vampire friend help her destroy the only man she has ever loved? And why is he so willing to help her destroy him?

You will fall in love with the innocent Veronica and her search for love, feel her joy at rekindling an old flame and die with her as the love of her life becomes her murderer.

Victor is a charming but wicked vampire who could compel a corpse on the gallows to speak. We follow him as he preys on Veronica, senses her weakness and watch as he pounces on her and destroys her with just…one…puncture.

Every woman knows a man like Victor…

DRAGGED INTO DARKNESS

 

An abusive husband kills his wife then dies in prison and is sent to Hell. After making a deal with the devil, he must go through seven levels of Heaven to retrieve her and bring Satan back her soul. But the trip up to Heaven is not so easy for this murderer who is entangled in a business arrangement with the devil. The agreement involves two road maps, one to Heaven and one back down to Hell, bribing angels, being conned by demons, facing karmic debt and searching his way through a paradise where he is not welcome to find his dead wife and ruin her peaceful eternity.

BENEATH THE BATTLEFIELD

 

 A civil war ghost story about a young soldier describing the horrors of war in letters to his mother back home. After fighting in the battle of Antietam, his life is forever changed and he becomes frightened by the changes around him.

KING OF SHADOWS

 

A dark and wispy tale of an angry and vicious man who is hell bent on raising his wayward son even though the man committed suicide and is no longer an earthly being but a demon hidden behind a veil of shadows.

Darien and Lucinda’s son died as an infant. The baby, whose soul was pure, rejected his evil father and his violent ways.

After enduring years of abuse, Lucinda has had enough. After she leaves Darien, she finds him dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

Nine months later she gives birth to another son, a son born of evil and ready and willing to be the child that Darien has longed for.

What follows is a hellish nightmare with a demonic son whose guidance from a long dead father he never knew, makes Lucinda’s life a living hell. A father who committed suicide and now a nobody, a lost soul, hidden behind a veil of shadows.

MY INTERVIEW WITH SHAH SIGHT from THE INTERPRETER!

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share an interview I had that was given by Shah Sight from The Interpreter: A Literary Group that took place on Saturday January 7.

Shah Sight: Lisa V. Proulx, Thanks for being with us today.

Lisa: Hi and thank you for having me!

Shah: You write Horror, and I must admit that I love horror books and films, why do you think you are interested in writing horror novels?

Lisa: My mom used to take my brother and I to the library every week to see scary movies and I fell in love with Dracula! There was something so dark and …mysterious about this handsome man flying into your window at night, seducing you and making you immortal. Even as a child, I thought it was pretty neat!

Shah: Did you start writing such stories from when you were very young?

Lisa: I started writing horror when I was about 8 years old.

Shah: Did you imagine a lot of horror scenes in your head, or is it something else?

Lisa: They just come to me, it can be from any source. I can drive down the highway and see a bird flying overhead and I can make a scary story out of it.

Shah: Describe one imaginary and scary scene that would make your heart pound out of horror?

Lisa: What scares me? People coming back from the dead.  People going insane, that sort of thing.

Shah: Please tell us about your horror stories, I am already excited and there is a thrill in my heart already, and I am sure it will be the same for those who will follow this interview!

Lisa: My stories are all usually based around good vs evil with a strong female character.  My latest release is the vampire novel, PUNCTURE. I write Horror, Paranormal Romance and Ghost stories. I love writing about vampires and witches and love to scare people with my writing!

Shah: Where can we buy your books, give us a link please?

Lisa: My books can be found on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and many other sites. My author profile is https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/lisavproulx and my FaceBook Fan Page is https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lisa-V-Proulx-Author-Fan-Page/223212131077410
Thank you again for interviewing me! I appreciate all of your support! : )

Shah:  We thank lovely Lisa V. Proulx for taking part in our interview, hope to talk to her again!

CHARACTER INTERVIEW WITH THE WOMEN’S LITERARY CAFE!!!

Hey everyone!

Hope you are having a great day so far!

Wanted to share some good news with you my friends.

Last month I was interviewed by the WoMen’s Literary Cafe. They asked to do a character interview with Veronica, the female vampire in my horror novel PUNCTURE.

I was happy with how it came out and surprised at some of the things she had to say!

I didn’t know the woman who interviewed her was also a cop…hmmm…I’m glad she left Veronica alone and did not arrest her for the crimes that she is sadly guilty of committing.

Here is the interview…enjoy!!! 🙂
