Meet author PIERRE GILSON~Author of the Week! Author of WORLD WITHOUT A HOME!

 

Hi everyone!

Hope you are having a great Sunday! We went out to a dance last night and had a blast! More on that later!

We also got more snow yesterday! It was the weirdest thing. The sun was out in the morning and I thought it would be a pretty nice day, then suddenly I looked outside and saw a blizzard! It was crazy! Then the sun came out but while we were the dance, it snowed even more and the roads were very icy. We made it home okay though but that was kinda freaky.

Today it is very cold and windy and it really feels like winter out there! Yikes!

Well, it’s Sunday and you know what that means…AUTHOR OF THE WEEK! Today I am hosting Pierre Gilson who is a very talented artist and author. I hope you enjoy meeting him!

There is still time to get your answers in for my monthly contest to WIN a FREE book of mine, your choice. Deadline is February 14th!

Still looking for authors, publishers, literary agents, editors…anyone who is in the writing biz and would like to be a guest on my blog.

Next Friday’s topic…LET’S TALK ABOUT WITCHES!

Sympathies go out to the family and friends of Whitney Houston who passed away on Saturday, February 11, at age 48.

Well, I hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by to say hello! 🙂

~AUTHOR OF THE WEEK~

Today I want to introduce you to a handsome and talented author and artist PIERRE GILSON!

Pierre is known as a “Writer of Epics” and is the author of WORLD WITHOUT A HOME, a gritty portrayal of a war torn nation and how the fate of that nation lies on the shoulders of one man, Ares Strife, to bring peace into an unsettled world.

He describes Ares as, “One of the main protagonists, unsure of himself at times but has confidence willing to help him make that change into something better than what he is now. His growth in the story will be noticed during every step that he takes in the Military and in all of Alpine and throughout the other lands of Gaia.”

When describing himself, he says, “I am a writer who likes to think of myself as an “Epic Novelist.” I am currently twenty years of age and of Haitian-African descent. Born in the great city of Dover, Delaware; residing in Phenix City, Alabama. During my years I have writen a variety of things such as poems, songs, and stories. Currently in college, I have been called truly gifted by my instructors. The only goal I have is to have people look at my work and see what I have seen all my life, a success. “

He is tudying creative writing at Chattahoochee Valley University and is fluent in English, Haitian Creole and French.

Some Fun Facts about WWOAH : This whole story and it’s entirety started as a poem in a College library.

Lone Sharks-Submariners that do all aquatic based missions. Such as infiltrate an enemy ships, find and locate lost material, and plant devices on submarines. They are required to hold their breath beyond the limit while under sea levels. A special pressure resistant suit is given to ease the pain on the body.

Although the book is about war, Pierre adds, “I didn’t put a lot of romance in Vol.1, it was more directed to the men through action but in the next volume, I’m sure to make the women very happy.”

WORLD WITHOUT A HOME is Volume 1 of a series and Pierre says, “It’s the beginning of The Epic!”

“In the war-infested world of Gaia; Few soldiers stood above their peers only to achieve what others could not…to be free.

On Gaia there is nothing but disagreements that lead to squabbles and eventually leads to all out wars. During an era of a somewhat instilled peace soldiers are called to deploy immediately by the Branch: Director. When this was ordered the events that spiraled after could only be stopped by a few soldiers. These heroes will bring a sense of stability to every corner of the world. But one who stands above all, the one who will bring among a limited peace, Ares Strife “The Peace Bringer.” Unlike ordinary soldiers, this particular one has the spirits of unsung warriors burning inside of him. The only question is “How will this peace be brought unto the world.”

Check out this awesome artwork! What a talented young man he is!

MY NEW INTERVIEW!!! plus TIPS ON SELLING YOUR FICTION ARTICLE!!!

Happy Friday everyone!

That sounds a lot better than Happy Monday doesn’t it? 🙂

Well, we had a 70 degree day here in Maryland the other day and it was just enough to tease me and make me want summer even more! But it was nice to be out and about and not have to worry about putting on layers of coats! I even washed my hair on the back porch with the garden hose! Yes, yes, I guess I am a country girl at heart!

Hope you all enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by to say hello! 🙂

~RECENT HAPPENINGS~

I was recently interviewed by Lori Moore, the author of  From Zero to Christian in Just 35 Years, Missing Andy:  The Journey From Grief to Joy and Grady the Gray Cat.

It was a lot of fun and Lori is a really nice girl with some awesome books to read. In fact, Lori will be featured here on my blog in the next few weeks as an Author of the Week!

Here is my interview:

Also, look for me on April 2 when I will be the Author of the Week on Full Moon Bites! More on that later…

~AUTHOR OF THE WEEK~

Currently I have February and March filled but looking for spots for April! It is fun and painless and all you have to do is answer some interview questions of if you’d prefer, write a guest blog. If you are interested and I hope you are, please contact me at any of the sites below.

This Sunday I will be hosting author Christine Cunningham…so be sure to stop by and meet this talented author…

NEW BLOG DESIGN COMING SOON!!!

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately and decided to jazz up my blog a bit! I love the pink and the stars but want something else to really make my site pop!

I found some cool ideas and I am now in the process of learning more about the tech side of things. But look for a new design in the next few days. I think you will like the one I picked out!

~WHAT I AM WORKING ON~

I am getting ready to work on my next book. It starts off in 1800’s London and is about a child who is abducted from her family by her father’s stable hand. He is obsessed with the young girl and his twisted love for the child plunges her into a dark underworld that holds no escape for her.

Can you guess what’s coming next? If you know my books, you will know..

I am still in search of a title which is strange because that is usually the first thing that pops into my head when I think about writing another story.

~WHAT I AM READING~

I love to read and would love to have more time for it but I squeeze it in where I can. I feel that in order to be a good writer, a person must enjoy reading.

But the book that I am reading now is by Anne Rice who says (many times) in the book that she was never a very good reader. So, I guess there is hope for those of you out there who follow in her footsteps.

Her book, “CALLED OUT OF DARKNESS~A Spiritual Confession”, is her journey from growing up a good and obedient Catholic girl, to becoming an atheist, then at 57 years old, coming back to her faith.

 It is a haunting memoir of her life growing up in New Orleans and how life can sometimes change your perception of what is faith and what if one day everything you believe in goes away.

~COOL ARTICLES~

Came across this cool article in Writer’s Digest that I thought you might enjoy. It’s called “Tips to Make Selling Yor Fiction a Reality!”
