#BadMoonRising Rhymes from the Wicked Nursery by J.D. Estrada #horror #poetry

Today I’m introducing another new author to BMR. The title and cover of his book should come with a warning: May induce the feeling of icy fingers crawling up your spine. He’s seen figures in his peripheral vision, but is trying to shrug it off – despite evidence to the contrary. Welcome J.D. Estrada!

Candy apple or candy corn?

I think this is a quality vs. quantity type of deal. I don’t always indulge in candy apples, but when I do, it’s fantastic. Candy corn just happens more often and I don’t care if it’s wax and sugar, the inner child demands to be fed.

If you watch horror movies, are you the person who yells at the characters, covers your eyes, or falls asleep?

I’m the type to slightly look away and have been known to add a full paragraph of dialogue, often cursing the lack of survival instincts and common sense from some characters. And if the movie gets me good, I’ll probably cuss out the movie while I laugh at the scare.

Do you ever see figures in your peripheral vision?

I actually have and on more than one video I’ve shot in my office, odd dust orbs appear and have had some odd bits of audio slip in. I play it off…because it’s where I work and let’s be honest, we don’t need an extra reason to fear where we work.

If you decided to write a spinoff of a side character, who would you choose?

The idea for the poem the Children Tooker came from a song by the band Idles. This and several poems from the Rhymes from the Wicked Nursery have spawned ideas for full stories I’ll be including in a horror short story collection to be released in the coming months.

How do you celebrate when you finish writing a book?

I’m always working on something so I celebrate success with more work. I might reward myself with a nice bottle of wine, a good solid and strong beer, or dinner at one of my favorite restaurants.

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on translating one of my books, a middle-grade short story collection, a Spanish horror short story collection, a novel, and two non-fictions. You know, to stay busy.

Rhymes from the Wicked Nursery is a poetry collection full of verses that will definitely not go gently into the night. So tuck in, keep a night light handy, and read at your own risk.

This is JD Estrada’s 18th release. He really hopes it keeps you up at night while feeling bad at the things that make you giggle.

Indie Author Friday: Caroline Clemens #IndieAuthor #romance #contemporary

Today’s author brings with her several selections to include romance, poetry, and holiday novellas.  Welcome, Caroline Clemens!

Kiss Ride     The first book/novella I ever wrote. I went back and changed the names to protect the innocent. Ha ha, actually I just was nervous and had no idea what I was getting into. This sweet little story is about my sister meeting her future husband on the train in Atlanta.

Into the Vines   This second book is three novels in one, a trilogy titled the Vintage Blue Trilogy. I wrote it over three years and it has around 177K words. I received nice reviews from family and friends but couldn’t market it further. Believe me I tried. It’s a coming of age story, a contemporary family drama, and bits of magical realism entwined. For me it’s a classic novel and it travels across continents. It has a happily ever after with heroism from a pilot and two of his adopted children. When my daughter told me she was reading Lord of the Flies I told her I wrote a book for her generation, the females of the world. I believed it was time for a female book. I couldn’t fathom that they only had princess tales for the very young or books about boys being boys. No wonder women are behind men in equality.

Brie’s Story   This was previously titled “French Bleu.” The first book from Into the Vines is about two women meeting on a vineyard in France in the Loire Valley. Each has a different reason for this vacation at a cooking school. The drama continues quickly and love interests mingle with the pilot who saves stranded souls from around the world. The story is a continuous saga into book two and three. They can be read together in order or separately.

Someday   This was previously titled Bleu Moon. I received two honorable mentions for this middle segment of Into the Vines. That made me extremely happy. I think my writing really took off during this novel. It’s a page turner and I wrote about Paris, a place I’ve never been to. I will be re titling this and giving it a print and digital venue on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. As a self-pubbed author I cannot put it out everywhere-this is more than a job for two or three people, let alone one person.

This story is about Francis and Hawa joining the family that inhabits the vineyard and has the lifesaving company that goes global. Angie is the name of this new age idea that we can encompass the globe without interfering into the rights of countries, that we can save lives through the use of private and government assistance, by employing some of our extraordinary individuals such as navy seals or national guard type persons. I would classify this story as Utopian and heroism at its finest. The secondary plot in here is the adoption of two distinct characters who join the family.

Sapphire Souls   This is the 3rd novel and soon to be titled “____ .“  As you can see I don’t have the title as yet. This follows the ongoing story and steps right into the Congo and other areas of Africa. I did the best I could to describe another place I’ve never been. I believe my nursing background precluded how I could write about other people from far away. You see we are all human with unique individual traits, yet quite a like in numerous aspects. I was extremely creative in this third novel and am proud of what I wrote. After this I was able to accelerate my process by way of the outline.

Hawa gets her wings and the story is set. She is the heroine and ready for action!

String the Cranberries   This novella was a NaNoWriMo from 2013. I love this story. I combined many things from my own life in here and made a unique story that is grim and yet is a happily ever after. Brandon leaves the army and doesn’t know what to do with his life. He works in his uncles barber shop, sees an ad, and goes out west to become a ranch hand, or cowboy. He meets Leia, which is a good thing, but doesn’t last long. This ironic tale is heartfelt and filled with goodness. I received a one star review for this tale and realized some people want to see you fail. The review tore a hole through me which I mended. We must fight evil in this world-that’s what that taught me! I would love to find readers for this or see this as a Hallmark movie. Smiles.

Autumn Quotes    This is my poetry collection I never intended to write. But I did and I’m good with that. Poetry is painful and can come quite easily once you start. It was a good introduction for me to begin writing. For that I am grateful. A few of my poems I truly love and would like to see them out there more. I entered a few contests, so we shall see. When you don’t have a MFA in writing I don’t think you get seen or heard. Pity that because many who have walked on the other side don’t get noticed. My aim is to change that. I have applied to mainstream high end contests. Maybe they laugh, maybe they don’t, or maybe I’ll have to open my own literary voice online magazine. I don’t have enough time for everything. So I’ll pour a wine or whiskey and write more poetry. I have the title for my next project. Smoked and Spiced.

Coming soon.    I have three titles I hope to release before Christmas! They are a historical fiction titled, “Chocolate for Lilly,” a thriller/suspense titled, “Three King Mackerel and a Mahi Mahi,” and a little short story titled, “Maiden Voyage-A Lighthouse Tale.”  These are either entered in contests or queried out to agents/publishers. I’ll give that some time and then self-publish. I have the covers already purchased but, of course, would relinquish if someone wanted to help me. This may be a do it yourself writing life.

What are your favorite books in your genre?

I’ve done a couple genres now, contemporary YA, historical fiction and the latest is thriller/suspense. Funny thing is I don’t like to be scared and writing a thriller seems so uncharacteristic of myself. But I did it and the 2nd draft is in the works. Grisham’s 1997 The Partner was my re-entry into reading after parenting three kids close in age. (I found for a while I could only read magazine articles for many years). I picked up this book in 2010 after buying it at a garage sale. The book was an eye opener for me into spying, surveillance, and the mob. Misery by Stephen King is right up my alley, she’s a nurse (me too) while he’s a writer (I’ve written eight or nine books) who ends up in a wheelchair (my grandmother). I have a soft spot for those unable to walk. The Shining, Silence of the Lambs, and The Exorcist scared me to death! The last two I had to hold up my hands in the movie theatre to block the screen while I trembled in fear. Why on earth have I written a thriller?

How did publishing your first book change your writing process?

I had much to learn writing the first book, including word usage, proper English, longer sentences, comma usage, etc. As a nurse we used precise language for description, nothing extra as that takes time away from patient care. Now I had to make things colorful and display feelings. I asked my teacher-sister to edit the novella and she wouldn’t do it. I was in bad shape; what now? I tried my best. Maybe she wouldn’t because the story was about her. After that I took a big leap. I wrote my first big story not about anyone. Of course, I used things I know but it was so much fun. Truly, it excited me. I wrote the story out in a notebook by hand-read as many writing tips as I could about plot, rising action, characters, blurbs, genres, etc. Then I typed and had it edited. That’s a trying process. Editors tell you all sorts of things that they would change, and since you are a newbie you want to take their ideas but some things you want to keep. This process can make you go mad!

My first real book Into the Vines I wrote out in notebooks by hand, after this book I researched taking notes, made an outline, and wrote by typing. This is the single biggest step I took and it worked. Therefore, I now write an outline including characters, places, and put the chapters down, word count I want and start typing. I feel I could write two or three books a year by doing this. We shall see.

What do you do to get book reviews?

I have tried and tried to get reviews through social media and online venues. I have not succeeded in this while I saw others matriculate to great outcomes. This was very difficult and discouraging-a true heart break. It’s not that I thought so highly of myself; it’s that I thought why not, why can’t I write or get noticed by someone? I thought my endeavors were more worthy. Maybe this has kept me going. Most likely I was in the wrong hands, hands that didn’t want to help but maybe actually harm me. Trolls come to mind. However, this gal persisted. I’m not sure why. Here I am and now where do I go? I kept trying, kept writing, and now I have three more stories to publish. I’ve sent off queries with many rejections. I may have to self-publish again. I’ve just discovered another site for book reviews. Alas, I will repeat, and try, try again. Why? Because I’d like to obtain readers, even if it’s a small group. Why does a performer keep trying? Because they enjoy the giving and just maybe someone will offer their review, critique, or applause.

What’s your favorite kind of cookie and why?

Gingerbread! Christmas gingerbread men to be exact. My mother introduced me to this ritual and I kept it up for many years. A couple years I missed (three kids close in age) due to not enough time, and yes, a lack of enthusiasm. I look forward to re introducing this timeless holiday tradition of mine.

Who would win a fight between Spiderman and Batman?

Batman. Bruce Wayne is such a great story. I mean the bat cave, a butler, books, and then a side kick named Robin, not to mention the bat mobile. Oh yea, he gets to be in disguise. That’s cool.

How would your best friend describe you?

Best friend-not sure what she would say (lots of lovely things w a smile). But a friend’s dad told her that, “Your friend Kim is regal.” And my dad’s best friend said to me, “You’re very diplomatic!” I consider regal and diplomatic to be the two best things ever said about me. I never would have come up with words like these to describe my nice personality and hardworking nature.

Author Bio

I’m an Indie Author and delighted to introduce myself to you! I’m on Amazon.com under the pen name of Caroline Clemens where I have a couple novels, and a poetry collection. I blog at carolineclemens.com and theivorytide.com. I’ve written eighty journalism styled articles for The Guardian Liberty Voice and received two honorable mention awards for “Bleu Moon,” which is the middle segment of my contemporary novel “Into the Vines.” I find this creative process to be a work of art. Presently my thriller for young adult or adults has a completed first draft. Both my historical fiction & thriller titles could be a series.

Indie Author Friday: Victoria Zigler #IndieAuthor #poetry #childrensbooks @VictoriaZigler

Welcome Victoria Zigler to Indie Author Friday!  If you’re looking for poetry and children’s books, she has over 40 to choose from.  As a Potterhead, I loved her answer to which fictional character she’d be.


A collection of poems of different lengths and styles – some with a hint of humour, others of a more serious nature – exploring a variety of themes, such as animals, nature, emotions, and the world around us.



Losing a sibling is hard. Losing three of them is even harder. Repairing a broken bond of trust is harder still.

After his three brothers disappeared, one after another, gone to a mysterious place known only as The Rainbow Bridge, Buddy the degu is all alone in his cage. Confused and frightened, he knows only one thing for certain: he last saw his brothers in the hands of the human caretaker. That knowledge breaks the bond of trust forged between Buddy and his human in the years since he was a pup, and leaves him convinced that letting her get her hands on him will mean he disappears too. Somehow, she has to convince him he’s wrong, and earn back his trust.

Based on actual events that took place in the life of one of the author’s own degus, and told from the point of view of a degu, this is the story of how patience and love taught a confused and terrified rodent how to trust again.

What’s the most constructive criticism you’ve been given in your writing career?

I had someone give me some constructive criticism regarding my writing of battle scenes recently.  The advice was really appreciated, because I’m rubbish at writing battle scenes that really make you feel like you’re there.  I’ll be sure to bear her comments in mind next time I need to write one.

If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

“Keep your poems and stories safe.”  Because I have very few of my early poems and stories, since I never worried about keeping them safe as a child, and it would have been nice to have them to look back on.  I had plenty from my very late teens and later – which I’ve rewritten and expanded on to make many of the books in the list of my published works – but almost nothing from before that, despite the fact I’ve written both poetry and stories since I was old enough to know how.

How did publishing your first book change your writing process?

It hasn’t changed it much.  The main difference now is that I’m more careful about making sure editing happens, and have to organize things like covers and marketing.

What’s your favorite kind of cookie and why?

I love shortbread.  Especially proper Scottish shortbread.  I don’t know why, and I don’t really stop to think about it while eating it, since I’m usually too busy enjoying my snack.

A penguin walks through the door wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?

He greets me – though not by name, of course – and then says, “Can you tell me the way to Penguinopolis?” And he’s here because he got on the wrong flight when trying to get home from a trip to Mexico, so now he’s lost.  I think I might go with him when he goes home, just to make sure he gets there safely.  Well, also because then I can play in the snow, but that part’s a secret… Shhh!

If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be?

I want to be Hermione Granger, because then I could have access to the Hogwarts library, and get to meet Luna Lovegood.  Plus, she’s really good at magic, and being able to do magic would be cool too.

Indie Author Friday: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai #IndieAuthor #poetry

It’s a very rainy Indie Author Friday – prayers for all those affected by Harvey.  Today’s author brings with her a book of poetry – isn’t that a beautiful cover?  Welcome Ranjeeta Nath Ghai!

Achievements and disappointments, success and failure, love and infatuation, introspections and retrospection, Life is a wonderful journey with its highs and lows. Is there something you feel that you can’t express? A feeling, a thought, an experience or a relationship…? Then…. this book is definitely for you. Most of us fail to express ourselves on a personal level. This book, written and packed with romance and rejection will touch a chord in your heart. The poet has penned down a plethora of feelings and experiences for you to read and enjoy. ……….

What do you wish you’d known before you were published?

I wish I had known how to promote my book ‘Mann Ki Aarzoo’ in the market. I would have done the ground work and then launched it in a big way…

How did publishing your first book change your writing process?

Earlier I used to write randomly. After my book was published I became a more regular writer. I also started writing micro poetry, quotes, prose poetry and short stories. I started experimenting with my writing in a more serious way.

What is something memorable you’ve heard from your readers/fans?

Some said that my poetry brought tears to their eyes and them moist, some said that they could feel that it was tailor made for them. Compliments like these really made my day.

Book you’d want with you if you were stranded on a desert island?

I just love to read chicken soup series.

How would your best friend describe you?

A loyal friend who would die for you. An easy going, laid back person with good humor.

If you were an animated character, who would you be and why?

We are two sisters and when we used to fight my mother used to say that we behave like Tom and Jerry… so keeping that in mind I would love to be Tom.

Author Bio

Born to a Gujarati mother, Assamese father in MH Agra Cantt, Uttar Pradesh, brought up in New Delhi and married to a Punjabi… I have a rich cultural background. “Mann Ki आरज़ू” is  debut attempt at publishing a few of my poems which I have been writing since 1985 to date. Being an army BRAT(Born Raised And Transferred) and Army Officer’s wife I have had the golden opportunity denied to many(and mine by birth)… to have covered the length and breadth of India, and seeing it in its splendor. Hardly have I ever lived in any state for more than a period of 2 years. Giving up my promising career as a graphic designer I build a parallel career as an educationist, to spend more time with my expanding family.

My life has been enriched by my seven furry buddies who with their unconditional love have always been a de-stressing factor of my life teaching me to value and love all HIS creations unconditionally.

From being a daughter to being a mother, from a caregiver to being loved back in return, being a friend and having friends worth dying for, life has come a full circle. “Life has treated me well and God has been kind to me. Looking back today I feel no regret as I have lived and celebrated each moment of my life with passion, on my own terms and conditions.”

What character in your book are you least likely to get along with?

In Death of Neverland my character of Wendy. She just felt like someone I could never get along with. In the Current one I am writing….Well I think that Lizzie would be the one who would grate on me the most. She is all brains and logic. In my kid’s book there was no character that I did not like.

What do you love most about the writing process?

Seeing the story evolve. I tend to not plan my stories. I read as I write. So I get to see where the stories are going that way.

How do you think you’ve evolved creatively?

I get that many people are always evolving in their creativity, and that writing helps it to do so. For me though writing has always been a part of me. Publishing however has allowed me to free myself to allow all of my creativity to flow.

Peanut butter kisses. My mom used to make them when I was a child. It was something that felt like we were closer when it was done.

Pamela Beckford’s new poetry book is here just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Legends of Windemere

Pamela Beckford publishes her 3rd solo poetry collection. Using various poetic forms she illustrates how love can set the heart on fire but also shows how that same love can turn to ashes. Poetry is an expression from deep within the soul. It can be therapeutic and healing. It can bring out all the best or the worst in life. Her poetry comes from the heart, not the head. It is an outpouring of emotion and she exposes it to the reader in the pages. She leaves a piece of her soul in every poem

Reviewers have said things like:

“Pamela’s poems are refreshing since they are truly written from the heart. She has a gift of writing a poem that speaks to each person’s heart and emotions.”

You can buy it here for only $.99 for Kindle – it also available in paperback ($7.19) on Amazon.

Poetry gives voice to what the eyes see and the heart hears.

Inspiration exists all around us. Beauty can be found in the laughter of a child or the blooms of a tree. Poems are one person’s interpretation of the world seen through their eyes and felt in their heart. Poetry is soul food – plain and simple.

Voices of Nature is a collection of poems that reflect the inherent splendor of nature all around us. This book utilizes a variety of poetry forms to paint word pictures.

One review said “The sheer variety of styles in this poetry book is amazing. Haiku, triple haiku, acrostic, rondeau, and so many others. Even better is that they explain the poems in the back, which is a great service to the curious reader.

Each poem is clear and paints a perfect picture of nature. Though, I have an odd feeling that both poets were tired of winter since that had the most amount of poems out of the season sections. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I did love the ‘Thunder and Lightning’ acrostic for the imagery and ‘New Day’ for the complicated style and bringing an odd sense of serene closure to the book.

I would highly recommend this poetry book. Even if you’re not into poetry, the pieces for every season will probably have you going ‘I thought the same thing.’

Pamela previously released a collection of love poems titled Dreams of Love with several five star reviews. She has been writing for a short time, but pours her soul into her poetry.

Kirsten collaborated on a collection called Hope’s Flight.

This is a collection created by two poets – Pamela B and Kirsten A.
Both women enjoy exploring various topics and poetry forms. Many forms are represented in Voices of Nature (along with a short description of the forms for your convenience). Buy Voices of Nature for only $.99 today and experience the wonders all around us.
