RRSMS – Behind the Scenes

 

Behind the scenes of Rock & Roll Saved My Soul, there are so many people working hard to make it all that you see, myself included.

But I would like to introduce you to some of the people who have taken the time to make everything possible. Here I asked them a couple of questions about RRSMS and what it means to them and the answers are just absolutely touching! We have people from promotions, to social media, and even one of the owners who took the time to answer my questions, my own at the very end.

Q: When someone mentions Rock & Roll Saved My Soul, what first comes to mind?

A: An amazing community of people

Q: When you created RRSMS, what did you think it would be like? Is it different than that or is it similar?

A: I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started it. I wasn’t sure where it would go or what it would amount to. What happened was far better than I ever could have imagined.

 Q: What does RRSMS and its community mean to you personally?

A: RRSMS is my world, my heart, and my soul. It has become something exponentially epic. Words cannot describe the feeling I get from being a part of the community. It isn’t about me (as a founder), it’s about everyone that’s come together to help make it what it’s become. All of the supporters, authors, and volunteers have made it what it is. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. RRSMS is where I need to be, it was what I was born to do.

Q: Have you written a piece for any of their anthologies? If so, which ones?

A: I have pieces in most of the anthologies. I try to put something into each one, even if it’s just the introduction to the anthology. As of right now, I have pieces in: Rock & Roll Saved My Soul Volume One and Two, Concert Experience, Fighting Chance, Random Acts of Kindness, one of the Authors Against Bullying anthologies (forthcoming) and the first volume of Rescue Me.

Q: What would you like to say to all the readers, volunteers, and other creators of RRSMS?

A: I would like to express my undying gratitude and appreciation for everything that everyone does. It’s been a long journey thus far and I couldn’t have gotten to where I am today without all of the people who have helped me.

Catching Up, Yet Again

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it’s been awhile and I’m hoping that doesn’t happen again, but life gets in the way. We authors get so caught up with things like work, relationships, WRITING. Yes, even that has kept me from updating this site.

To catch up on a few things:

– Hearts on Fire Editing is temporarily closed. I won’t be doing until I feel like I can fit it into my schedule and be able to get it back to the author in a timely manner. I’ve already had a few people ask me to continue going, but I can’t at the risk of it not being done soon enough.

– The Dead Speak is FINALLY finished and is available for preorder! Are you excited for this book? I know I am excited to see Ophelia take her first steps in the real world and see how far she goes.

– The Sinned Drown is under way already! Kind of, I mean, I’m only on chapter one, but the prologue is done too, so that’s a start, right?

– Authors Against Bullying is coming along, slowly, but still coming along. It does take time to put these things together and we’ve had to move the release date a few times, but it’s set for the 6th! I’ll have a collection of short stories coming out with Rock & Roll Saved My Soul shortly after AAB V2 and I have yet to choose a charity for them as it’s a difficult decision for me. I will announce it as soon as I know more about it though!

– I feel like there was something else that I was going to put here, but now I can’t remember. Hmm… Okay then.

ORDER YOUR ECOPY OF THE DEAD SPEAK NOW AND HAVE IT DELIVERED TO YOUR KINDLE ON THE 13TH!

Looking for a Cover Designer

I had made a post previously about cover designers and I had listed some of my personal favorites, but there are more to that list. I’m not adding them in this post, but I was asked what do I look for when looking for a cover designer.

Now, when I think about my book covers, I immediately go to the three people that have been helping me with my covers since I started, but it’s more than that. Lately, I’ve been working on photoshop, learning how to make my own covers, but besides that – there are some traits that I look for when I think about cover designers.

Do they design in the genre my book is in: You don’t want someone who only does romance books to design something that is meant for a horror novel. I’m not saying that it would be bad, but they’re completely different genres and it would be hard to tell what you were getting yourself in to until it is too late.

Do they have samples: Samples are a good thing. It gives you the chance to see what they can do before you buy it. For example, I wouldn’t go on Fiverr and look for a cover designer there. When it comes to covers, it’s something that you want to be up close and personal with the designer, working together to create your image.

Price Range and Messages: You probably don’t want someone who takes about a month to get back to you, but on the other hand, you don’t want something overly expensive (but hey, if it’s something that you love, how can you put a price on that?). I know personally that I want something that is decently priced for the amount of work put into it.

Now there are many other things to consider and once I get more sleep, I am sure that I will write them down and put them into another blog post, but for now, consider the above. Consider whether they will work with you for you to both reach a common ground when it comes to your book cover!

Write Often or Pace Yourself?

This is a question that is asked constantly by many people and  the answer lies within yourself, I believe. There are times that the characters speak to me and I cannot get them to shut up and when this happens, I tend to write often, but other than that, I pace myself. I make myself a daily goal, though lately I have been taking time away from that to deal with some issues in my life, but I feel like I will be getting back to that daily goal soon. My personal daily goal has been set at 1,000 words per day, but that’s something for me – a personal accomplishment for myself.

This is a question that I cannot answer for you. I do think that it’s a good idea to set a personal goal and try to reach that goal each day, but I know there are some people who cannot do that no matter how hard they try. As far as this question, only you will know the answer for yourself.

Software for Writing

One question that I also constantly get asked is what is the best software for writing. There are so many out there that the decision might be a difficult one, but have no fear. There are many alternatives that you can get to for writing.

One of the amazing programs I had run into has been something like Scrivner, if you can afford it. It’s something that has a $60 fee or something like that and you have to log into it and use it that way, but it has absolutely amazingly helpful devices. It has noteboards where you can plan characters and scenes – separately,  of course, and you can write one chapter at a time, keeping them separate until you compile everything you’ve written into one word document. This comes in handy and I’ve actually have met editors who prefer editing in a scrivner document over anything else (though to me, that’s more difficult).

So another clear option is Mircosoft Word, this being the one that I personally use. I use this one because of the clear format, the clear page breaks and the way you can do scene dividers. I also use Mircosoft Word for the formatting capabilities such as inserting pictures behind the words on the beginning of the chapters and such. It also automatically corrects common spelling errors, something that I am constantly thankful for, though I’m probably biased towards this one.

Another option so similar to Word is Open Office. Now to me, this is one of my least favorite options, but I believe it’s only because I haven’t had a lot of experience with it. This one is free and it’s close to Word. You can do nearly everything with it from what I’ve heard about it, but I have yet to figure out all the tools of the trade with this one.

One more option is using something like Google Drive and have the document private so no one but those you invite can see it. I always have an issue with this because if you’re anything like me, you use someone’s computer and then forget to log out and low and behold, you’ve left your Facebook up and they’re making a rather embarrassing post about it, but not only that, but you’ve left your book up to which point, they can edit it and save it to mess you up and there’s nothing that you can do about it.

The very last option that I can even hink about is using something like Notepad to write, though that is something that I don’t suggest at all. No publisher that I know deals with Notepad files and there is no way to set up indents, formatting structure, centering things and so much more. As an editor, I wouldn’t accept a Notepad document either only because it is so difficult to work with.

****

Now, I’m sure that there are other options, but there will always be good ones and bad ones. This is just in order from what I would personally advise using versus ones that I wouldn’t advise using at all. Hopefully this list helps you with your decision of program use! Let me know in the comments which one you use and why!

Lost Time

So, again, in the past few days, I’ve been not publishing on this blog here, but I AM TONIGHT!

In this lost time, I’ve added a symbol to Ophelia, but I’m not releasing information about it yet :3 I guess you’ll have to wait a little while, but here’s that symbol!

Sign

It’s ore than that though: I will be adding a new character to Ophelia soon! I will be publishing a character list that will also be in the back of the book! I will post some things about the characters as things progress!

For more information on Ophelia and myself, follow my author page: Author Bree Vanderland!

Faced with Disaster

Okay, so the title is a little misleading as it’s not technically a disaster, but it is for a writer, I guess. Here, I’m faced with a problem.

I love to write and I want to write – ALL THE FREAKING TIME – as I have so many things listede in my “to be written” pile and so not enough time to write them all, but I hate the weather.

Winter weather makes me so sleepy and I hate ice, snow, cold weather, and anything else that has to do with winter. I hate it. It makes me lose my concentration and makes me not want to write or it makes me too tired to write.

Because of this, some of my books are coming along slowly until warmer weather when I can work harder on them, but no worries :3 I will push these books out for you guys so you can read them! Never give up on your writing and stay tuned for more updates!

Authors Against Bullying

I know, I know! I’ve been so bad as I’ve been gone again – FOUR DAYS! But I caught something that made me sick and dizzy and eww!

Well, today, besides sleeping and noming on chicken stew, I pulled together with Kate Marie Robbins and Zara Elise Thelms and pulled together the next TWO Authors Against Bullying anthologies! One will be on bullying, but we are also expanding and partnering with another author to bring awareness to another cause – Human Trafficking.

Attached, I have both promo banners for the anthologies and I am proud of all we have achieved with AAB. Our first volume  went as far as #13 in its category! I’m so thankful for all the hard work and dedication people have put into the anthology and while Volume Two is now with our publisher, I hope to see more people participating and sharing the cause!

Fun Horror Excerpt – Title Needed

So, I did a quick write of about 1,000 words and I’m still not sure where this is going, but there were some people who said that they wanted me to write a little horror included and I hope this either satisfies them for now or leaves them begging for more! I definitely liked stepping out of my comfort zone with even this little bit 🙂


 

Prologue

The rain fell in sheets, the sound of it hitting the pavement and the few ice droplets that were present bounced off. The wind whipped the woman’s hair in every direction, her long, black locks making it nearly impossible to see as thunder sounded and lightening lit up the area. She was waiting for someone that was already late.

Glancing at her watch, she sighed. There was nothing that she could really do to get him here faster, except for the one thing she didn’t want to do. Reaching up, she tied her hair up and waiting as the rain soaked through her tight black jeans, loose black shirt and zipped black jacket. The cloak that was billowing around her was just for appearances as she needed to show who she represented, not that the dark gray seal was visible in the light that was present.

Glancing around, she took in the bridge that she was standing nearby. Wanting to be seen and to have her visitor realize she was alone, she resisted stepping under its safety from the storm. There was a small stream that was running below the bridge that she was standing on the edge of the water. Looking up the small hill towards the edges of the road to her left, she could barely see the outline of her black Bentley sitting next to the guard rail.

With everything that was going on, she knew that the deal needed to be made and it needed to be made quickly. That was why they had sent her. That is why she was now standing in the rain, waiting on him to arrive. Time ticked by slowly as the wind picked up even more, the trees in the distance shifting their weight as they were moved. Once she heard the footsteps behind her, she sighed.

“You’re late,” she spoke quietly, knowing that he would hear her anyway, having exceptional hearing. “You were supposed to be here an hour ago. For the one calling all the shots, you’re not doing a great job.”

She turned around and only saw his shadow, but she knew that would be all that she saw. It had happened before the last time he had threatened all the peace between all the races and all the people, and everyone had bought it. Everyone had essentially, everyone had bowed down and given him what he wanted in return. Now he was back and the woman was stubborn – part of the reason her people had sent her. She wouldn’t bow down for anything.

“Doesn’t matter, does it?” His voice was soft and velvety, something that she could easily see herself begging to hear more of if it was a different situation. She cocked her head and narrowed her eyes, trying to catch a glimpse at his face, but it was useless. The dark hid him well, even if she had extraordinary sight. “Did you bring the stuff?”

She waited before replying because a part of her was scared. She was young and had her entire life ahead of her, but it could all disappear if she told him no. She didn’t have the drug.

“Damnit!” he cursed as he turned ad started walking away from her. When he turned back, it was clear that he was furious. Rushing up to her, he grabbed her shoulders quickly, pushing her against one of the pillars that held up the bridge. As he did so, his own cloak fell, exposing his decomposing face, the flesh slowly peeling off of it, bone and blood present and oozing from different wounds. “I don’t think you understand the severity of it. I need the drug. I need it to survive and if I don’t have it…”

He paused, leaving the woman anticipating the next part of the sentence. It was a good thing that she wasn’t squeamish as she would have shied away, but she didn’t. In fact, she couldn’t tear her eyes away from it. There was a piece right above his eye that was hanging down, brown and clotting blood where it use to be. A part of her wanted to reach up and tear the rest of it off for him, but she doubted that he would appreciate that very much.

“What will happen?” she questioned as she tried to push him back. It was useless though as he pulled her away and then slammed her back against the stone again. She winced as the pain shot up her back, but she tried not to show it on her face.

“What will happen is that this… this disease will be spread and that’s not what you want, is it? Think about it. All the races will be faced with this disease, this affliction and you would have an outbreak on your hands. Is that really what the Elders want?”

He took a step back from her and paced, but she was frightened, keeping against the stone, just in case he decided to attack. She was sure he didn’t know, but she had a dagger strapped beneath her cloak, one with an intricate design on it. It was made especially for her as the hilt was made of gold and the blade was made of the purest sapphire, formed into an unbreakable blade that made the smoothest of cuts.

“You don’t understand what you’re doing, keeping the drug locked up the way that you do…”

“It’s not my call,” she started to reply, but again, he spun around and slithered up to her quickly. She could feel his rancid breath against her cheek and the ooze of the blood as his cheek touched hers as he whispered in her ear.

“That’s where you’re wrong, dear.” Okay, maybe she was starting to feel a little nauseated from everything, holding back the vile that was rising in her throat. “The people control the Elders, just remember that.”

Stepping back, he raised his hands as his eyes bore into hers. “I will give you one week and not a second longer to get me what I need or else. My dearest Ophelia Moriarty.”

Her eyes grew wide as her name slithered off of his tongue. For a moment, there was something in the air, something that wanted her to retreat and find the Elders, telling them everything that had transpired, but the other part left her intrigued as to how he had known it was her.

“Did you really think I wouldn’t figure it out, Princess?” Princess was all but spat out as he rolled his eyes, stepping towards her again. “Turn their heads,” he whispered before he walked past her and back under the bridge.

“And if I can’t convince them?” she called out, thinking that he was already gone. His reply came, quietly and barely audible, but still it was there.

“Then the countless deaths from the affliction will be your problem, not mine.”

Skye Hegyes

Dragons, wolves, and sharp objects are commonplace in Skye Hegyes’s home in North Carolina. She spends most of her time between writing and working. When not doing either of these things, you may find her making crafts or adventuring with her family, which consists of her husband, two daughters, two birds, and three cats… and a partridge in a pear tree…

My first novel, Puck’s Choice, is the first in a series I’m working on and came out late last year (2014). I’m currently editing book two, Jenna’s Story, for release late this year. Before it’s release, I self-published a short story called “Chiller” and a short story collection called “Short Story Smash”. The short story collection was based of a writing challenge I made for myself back in 2010 where I wrote a short story a week to end up with fifty-one short stories and one poem/song.

I love writing romance tales with hints of fantasy and paranormal. Recently, I’ve also picked up ghost-writing, which has been fun and challenging all at once.

While I love chatting with people, I’m horrible at starting conversations. I just don’t know anything interesting to talk about although once a conversation is started, I have no problems continuing it. That said, check out any of my links and feel free to contact me.

B.E. McLaughlin

Languish, by B.E. McLaughlin is a mystery, thriller novel that has LGBT themes within it. The novel follows two mothers in search of their kidnapped daughter, and tests the strength of their love, as well as the mental and physical strain one can take within a given amount of time.

Languish was released on the 1st of January this year, and I am very excited about its progress, much more excited for my following novels and the path that this career will lead me.

When asked about her current WIP, this was her response –
My current WIP is the first of a trilogy that started from a question of “What will humans do for the possibility of money, cold hard cash in their hands?” You’re Next: the Descent, is a horror, thriller, dystopian piece that questions society and how well it is truly run.

But I love to read all types of books, when my University schedule allows for me to. 18 books this semester doesn’t seem like a lot until it is all piled up on top of you. Haha.

I am hoping to have my next novel out by mid summer, or late spring if I am lucky.
