Behind The Words with L.E. Harvey

Today my guest is Lauren Harvey!  Please give her a warm welcome. 

L. E. Harvey is a writer and model in Harleysville, PA.  She greatly enjoys all that Philadelphia city life has to offer.  When L. E. is not writing or working on the political scene, she models as a pinup and "alt" (alternative) model.  L. E. admires women like Betty Page, and "Rosie the Riveter" has been her idol since childhood.  She is currently affiliated with The Gypsy Queens, Angels With Ink (AWI), The Cherry Girls, and Curvy and Rocker Pinups.  L. E. Harvey is a proud participating author in Operation E-book Drop, sending e-book copies of her books to the men and women of the U. S. military across the globe!

The Person Behind the Words 

L. E. Harvey 

Who are we writers, that you purchase our work without knowing us? It's a rarity in our times to make any kind of purchase without research, test drives, and the like. Yet, writers are in that tiny percentage of people whose work will be bought, and no one knows a thing about the person in that picture on the back.
Who are we writers? Are we recluses who hide away, typing words for hours on end? Or are we that person who smiled and said, “hi” as you passed by on the street this morning? Who, or what, makes a writer?
Well, just like anything else in life, there is a tremendous variety of personalities in the writing world. Some writers are reclusive. Others are always out and about. Some are extremely friendly. Others can't be bothered to give you the time of day. Writers are as different as peacocks are from chickadees.

Since I fall into this interesting grouping of people, let me tell you a little about the person in my picture.
I am multi-racial. I grew up hearing various accents and languages. It makes for some very interesting and even comical stories. A Spaniard trying to speak to a Slav in English when English was not the primary language for either makes for an unusual conversation! I loved it, though. I am very proud of my mixed heritage. I love being a mutt. Plus, it can be fun to speak to people in unusual languages when they have no idea what you're saying. It's especially good for those annoying sales people that approach you on the streets of cities like New York or Las Vegas. 

I come from a small, but very tight family. Family was always very important, and we all love and respect each other tremendously. We also know how to make each other laugh. We've found that laughter is the most important thing in life, and we make sure that we can't get enough of it. It's a rarity that you see a family picture without at least one of us making some kind of comical expression.
Mine was also a theatrical family. We were always on stage. We sing, we dance, we act. Performing was such an enjoyable outlet for me as a child. The only real issue now is that I will often spontaneously break out into show tunes, and I can't really control it. I don't mind, though. It typically makes people laugh, which is a good thing. 

Since singing was an integral part of my upbringing, music has always been important to me. I listen to nearly every genre of music. There are a few I'm not necessarily particular for, but if the musicianship is good, then you can rest assured I'm listening to it. From opera to heavy metal to bagpipe music, I listen to it all!
That love of music, theatre and comedy has really come into play in my side work as a pinup girl. Let's face it: pinups are cute, coy and entertaining. Since making faces in front of a camera comes quite naturally to me anyway, I had no problem transitioning into the pinup world. It's just a new way for me to carry on the family's tradition of fun facial expressions. 

As for my “real” job as a writer, I've been writing my entire life. While most kids would go out and play baseball, I'd run up to my room to go write a novel. Writing has been my life-long passion, and I know that I am one of the very few people who get to say they are truly living out their dream.
There is so much more to a person than one can fit into a guest blog. Hopefully this has helped you to know the person behind the book. So, the next time a friend comes over and they spot one of my books on your book shelves and they ask about it, you can tell them I'm that crazy lady who breaks out into show tunes and knows how to say colorful phrases in Slavish! 

Lauren is currently on virtual book tour with Authors Supporting Authors,  so please leave a comment here today for her and gain an entry for your chance to win a copy of one of her book at the end of her tour. Lauren's next stop is June 5, with Katie Salidas at

VBT Pit Stop # 2 with Lorrie Struiff

Everyone has secrets. Homicide Detective Rita Moldova has a secret, a crystal amulet from her Roma bloodline that allows her to see the last image a victim had seen in their eyes before they died. Now, a ritual killer is terrorizing her town and the crystal’s magic has suddenly stopped doing its job.
 FBI agent, Matt Boulet, is sent to lead the task force and gives the group strange orders. Worse, Rita senses he is holding back a deep, dark secret about the killer.
When she confronts her seer mother’s advice, she learns another secret about their clan that she finds impossible to swallow.

Rita swims through a whirlpool of confusion as the investigation continues. Can Rita deny the lore of the ancients? Can she deny her growing feelings for Matt Boulet?

Today I'd like to welcome Lorrie Struiff,  author of Gypsy Crystal.  Please give her a warm welcome,  and thank you so much for being with us today Lorrie.


Thank you so much for having me here today. And, a warm welcome to all of you readers.

                           WHAT IS NEEDED FOR A GOOD STORY

Have you ever started reading a novel and fifty pages in, your eyes start glazing over? Or the same scene is described for two pages? The characters are cardboard- stiff?

You look again to see the name of the author who wrote the book. "Really?" you ask. Then you try to stay with the novel, but again with your eyes glazing until you must put it aside and reach for another book in your TBR pile. The story is not holding you, it's boring.

So, what is needed for a good story?

The best stories have a strong theme, a fascinating plot, a fitting structure, unforgettable characters, a well-chosen setting, and an appealing style. The story must be well written to capture the imagination.

Great stories make a promise. They promise fun, excitement, and to take you along for a great
read. The reader trusts the author to deliver on that promise.

People decide if they like a novel after reading only a few pages. Great stories are rarely aimed at everyone. The most effective stories match the world view of a tiny audience--a target audience-- and then that tiny audience spreads the good word on the story.

In Gypsy Crystal, my theme follows the mystical lore and traditions of the Roma people. Imagine a homicide detective with a secret amulet that mysteriously helps her in her job. The plot of capturing a serial killer who is loose in her town, and the pacing of the structure slowly building with twists and turns to rise to a dramatic end. My main characters, Rita and Matt, spark feelings in the reader as well as with each other. The setting for my story takes place in a location I know well and adds to the authenticity. The story is trendy and fits with the paranormal style prevalent in today's popular novels.

Is Gypsy Crystal well written? That is for the reader to decide. But I think it will grab you from page one and your eyes will not glaze over because you will be too busy turning the pages. The novella has many surprises in store for the reader. Try it, I think you'll like it.


        Rita Moldova's best-kept secret, a crystal amulet that shows her the last image a victim
had seen when they died and has helped propel her career as a homicide detective ­ until
prostitutes start dropping.

        A ritual killer dubbed the Ripper by the media is terrorizing her town and it's Rita's job
to help end his killing spree. The problem ­ Rita's mystical amulet, passed down through her
Roma bloodline, has failed for the first time in memory to do its job ­ and it's making it a real
bitch for Rita to do hers.

        To make matters worse, the FBI has sent in hunky agent, Matt Boulet, to lead the case ­
and Rita finds herself attracted to him.
        When Rita visits her mother ­ a gifted seer in her own right ­ and her uncle to glean what
she can about the history of the amulet and the lore of their clan, she learns much more than she
bargained for, and the truth is too much for her to swallow.

        As the investigation continues, Rita learns she can't deny the lore of the ancients, or her
growing feelings for Matt Boulet.


    Detective Rita Moldova peeked around the corner to make sure the hallway was empty. Making a quick right turn, she slipped into the autopsy lab to have a few minutes alone with the body. She tucked her white shirt tighter into her jeans and zipped her windbreaker to stay warm in the chilly room. The harsh odor of
formaldehyde hit her nostrils and stung her throat.
    Her heart twisted at the sight of the young, auburn-haired woman lying on the stainless steel table. A white sheet covered her to the navel; bruises blemished the once pretty face. Contusions marred the pallid skin from elbow to shoulder. The gash on the front of her neck gaped, exposing open veins and torn tissue.
    Rita flipped her thick, dark braid back over her shoulder, snapped on one latex glove, leaned over the corpse, and peeled back an eyelid. In her bare hand, she clasped a star-shaped crystal hanging from the gold chain around her neck, an endowment from her maternal Roma bloodline. The crystal heated in her palm, warm energy pulsing up her arm to her shoulder. The face captured in the victim's eye coalesced and stared back. Rita drew in a sharp breath. Bobby Driscoll! She had known him since high school, and now he worked as a uniform in her precinct. What the hell was going on?

Jo Davis on the Domestic Side

Today my guest is author Jo Davis,  who is currently on a Domestic Seduction Tour in Houston,  as well as on virtual book tour with Authors Supporting Authors.  Please give her a warm welcome while we take a look at the Domestic side.

Thank you for being with us today....

Tell us a little bit about yourself. 

I am Jonita Davis, writing under the name Jo Davis. My books Domestics and Michigan City Marinas are available now where books are sold. I have an English degree from Purdue University that I use it to work as a freelance writer--the job that pays the bills.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I began writing at a young age. My very first publication was a self published book entitled Gloria Gooddoctor. It was a class project on publishing. As a teen, I wrote poems. I didn't begin writing fiction until I was in my 20's. Actually, my decision to become a writer occurred in 2004 when I decided to follow my dream and enroll as an English major at Purdue.

How many books have you written? 

Two and one is in the editing stage.

In writing Domestics, what did you learn about yourself? 

That I really have a knack for the twisted tales. The action scenes came to me easily. This was scary at first, because I was worried what everyone would think of the violence that I created. However, there is a deeper message to the story (the hazards of revenge and domestic abuse awareness) that you can only grasp when taking in the entire story.

How did you come up with the theme to your book?

Domestic violence and domestic work. Domestics was the common thread. FYI, the original working title was Keeping House.

Do you relate to any of your characters in any way?

Domestics is a thriller that follows a tortured main character from the loss of her family to her transformation into an assassin for hire. She targets men like her late husband who violently abuse her and their daughter. This assassin's number is circulated in the grocery stores and hospitals, to women who can't get away from their captures for whatever reason. This assassin's cover is a housekeeping business. When she comes in to clean house--she really puts your house in order. You can buy it on Passionate Writer Publishing's website or where books are sold online.

What was the hardest thing about writing this novel? 

Writing for the reader while keeping the integrity of the story. The reader has to know enough about the book's topics and issues to grasp the plot without giving away key points. This is especially difficult in writing mysteries.

What was the thing you enjoyed the most about writing Domestics?

Thinking up the assassinations. I will probably catch flack for this, but the assassination scenes were my favorite because they were easy and fun to write.

What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing? 

I've met tons of people that I would have never rubbed shoulders with and traveled outside of the local area. I am also writing more, and getting closer to my dream of supporting myself entirely with my writing.

Are you working on anything right now? 

Yes, Carrying On is my current novel that is in the editing stage. It is about a newly single mother who comes home to her very complicated family. She is roped into helping clear the name of her hometown's only female city council member. With the help of her criminally proficient cousin, she investigates murder, bails her brother out of jail, all while trying to maintain a stable environment for her children--and their adventurous pet ferret Fred.

What advice can you give to newly aspired writers? 

Write and finish the novel. The battle is half over when that manuscript is done. Then, proofread like crazy! Get work in the writing field to ehlp hone your skill.

How can your fans get in touch with you? Do you have a website? Facebook? Myspace? Twitter?

How is the Domestic Seduction Tour and your Virtual Book Tour going? 

Great! I am doing this interview from Houston, Texas, where I am at the national Black Book Festival. It is the current stop on the tour. My tourmate Omegia Keeys and I have met so many great people

Any other events you can tell us about? 

The next stop on the tour is the Indianapolis Black Expo. Look to www.domestic

What is one thing your readers may be surprised to know about you? 

I am very absent minded.  Sometimes it is super easy to get distracted. Super easily for me.

Thank you so much for being with us today. I wish you much success, and please stop back anytime to
keep us updated.  Please be sure to leave a comment for Jo here today for your chance to win a copy of her book Domestics,  and follow her tour leaving a comment at each pit stop for more chances to win.

VBT Pit Stop with author Tasha Wright

Please give a warm welcome to Tasha Wright,  author of "When A Tattered Past Catches You".


Tough willed, strong as nails Willa will do whatever it takes to provide for her family even if that meant putting her life in danger or on hold. Living the street life meant not allowing anything or anyone to get close enough to hurt or destroy her. But, after the death of her mother she is forced to return home and confront a past she tried to erase from her memory.

As Willa confronts a tragic past she also has to confront something else, her long lost love, Damon. Living the street life and becoming the head woman in charge was something Willa did with ease but there was always something or someone missing in her life. Will Willa let down her guard and allow Damon back into her life again or will she continue to live the street life?

Thank you so much for stopping in Tasha.  It is a pleasure having you here today.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I first began writing short stories when I was sixteen years old. My mother pushed me to utilize my wild imagination, so she bought me a computer. From that day I have never stopped writing and I still have the same BIG passion as I did when I had first begun writing.

How long does it take you to write a book?

I feel for each author it will be the time they dedicate to writing. Of course when your work is published you then have so many events and things you will need to do to promote your work but you must make time to continue writing on other works as well. For myself, it would take me about nine months to complete a book. However, many authors will read their work and make the necessary changes, which could run you into a year.

What is your work schedule like when you're writing?

When I am writing my work schedule is very hectic. I have so many things to juggle with my personal endeavors as well as work and school.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I like to write about things people can relate to. I write in such a way that I appear to be talking to my readers. I want my readers to have a connection with me when they are reading my work.

How do books get published?

Of course you have to present a body of work to wither a publisher or agent. It depends on the writer what route they would like to take. I used a book entitled Writer’s Market for a while. It gave me every publishing company in the United States with their contact information and what you will need to submit for them to determine if they will represent you. You will need to stay dedicated and understand that every agency will not accept your work. With every no there will come a yes as long as you are presenting quality or promising work.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

I use my own imagination of things that happen in relationships and everyday life. I do not take things from my family or friends lives and write about it. I feel that would be a huge exploitation of their lives.

When did you write your first book and how old were you?

I wrote my first book when I was 21 years old. However, I didn’t take the steps of publishing the first book until about two years ago.

What do you like to do when you're not writing?

When I am not writing I just try to relax. I have a loving boyfriend who is very supportive of my writing so there are many times he will make the time to get me away from my atmosphere and allow me the time to rest my mind.

What does your family think of your writing?

My family is very supportive of my writing. My family has always encouraged me and they are very excited for me.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

I have learned that I can challenge myself and multi task. Many times I will write two or three books at a time. I toggle between each book and it has shown to really benefit me.

Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?

You must first have the desire and the passion to write. Learn the basic structures and grammars so that you’re writing quality books. When you do find your representation, check them out! Every great person must have an even greater team behind them. Writers know what they want to say and sometimes see a word that isn’t really there and that is where your editor will come in. Remember it is not just you, it is a team.

Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

I just began with actually publishing so I have had the pleasure to hear from some of my readers. There has been a pattern of them enjoying my ability to write about things they can relate to. Readers have also said they like the fact that if they think they have figured out what will happen I take a turn and flip it. My work is unpredictable.

What do you think makes a good story?

I feel it takes imagination and desire to write a good story. You do not want to write several books and have your readers feel you write about the same things all the time. That will tire your readers and possibly turn them away.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I began writing short stories when I was sixteen years old and at that time I set a life goal to become a published author. I am doing what I want I wanted to do and I love every moment it. I am very humbled and appreciative.

Thank you for taking time to chat with us.  Tasha is on Virtual Book Tour with Authors Supporting Authors and The Virtual Book Tour Cafe',  so be sure to follow along with her at her various pit stops,  leaving a comment along the way for your chance to win a copy of When A Tattered Past Catches you.  You can view her tour schedule at her website

Please Welcome Author Katie Salidas

Our guest today is Katie Salidas. Please give her a warm welcome. She is the author of Immortalis Carpe Noctem, and today we will discuss Katie as a writer. Thank you for stopping in today Katie.

Please tell us a little about yourself....

I'm a dreamer. I love to sit and think up stories. I can often be found staring at my computer screen waiting for the muse to strike. When it does, watch out. Thankfully, I have a wonderful and loving family that lets me indulge my need to write. Both my husband and my wonderful daughter know about “Mommy's writing time.” They are super supportive.

Is your family supportive in your writing?
Oh yes, my husband is my biggest fan and promoter. He's also my hardest beta reader. He's not afraid to tell me when a scene just plain sucks; then again, he's also there to tell me how great they are too. And like any good husband, he's my rock when I'm feeling particularly blue. My daughter thinks her mom is just great! She can't really read my stories (and a good thing too as they are a bit mature for her) but she will tell anyone and everyone that her mommy is an author. I've also got a set of extremely supportive parents. When Immortalis was first printed, my Dad bought 20 copies and sent them off to every member of the family.

Do you recall how your interest in writing started?
It started with a story idea that just wouldn't quit. I'd started writing Immortalis 5 years before it was published. After running into many plot road blocks, I shelved the story and tried to move on. But the story just wouldn't let me put it to rest. It demanded to be told and after multiple revisions I found I loved not just the story, but the process. Since then I have been writing constantly.

How long have you been writing?
I've written things down in some form since I was a little girl, but the real, focused writing started around 5 years ago.

What inspires you to write?
I'm inspired by the things I see. Not so much the exact stories, but the questions behind them. For Immortalis, I wanted to answer questions about vampires. Why can't they go out in the sun? Do they have beating hearts? Are they really the walking dead or something else? What are their origins? What would it be like to be a vampire? The answers to the questions really help the story unfold.

Do you ever suffer from writers block? What do you do about it?
Sadly, all the time. Sometimes I just can't write, the muse won't speak. When that happens I try to do something else writing involved. I revise work I've had sitting on the back burner. I read (reading provides inspiration), I work more heavily in the critiquing group (critiquing helps sharpen our writing skills) or sometimes I just sit and stare at the computer screen until something strikes!

What, in your opinion, are the most important elements for writing?
A good muse and a quiet place to hear her. LoL. There is so much that goes into writing it is hard to pinpoint one or even two things to say are most important. You need a good story in your head, and the drive, and not to mention the time to write it. Beyond that you need patients and skills too. Like I said, so much is involved.

What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing?
Seeing my story in print is akin to childbirth, it's a beautiful thing to see years of hard work finally turn into something you can hold in your hands. It is a dream come true.

Any recent appearances that you would like to share with us about any upcoming events?
I am actively promoting this new release, touring the blogosphere. Stop by to see all of my upcoming appearances.

You will find all of Katie's dates for her virtual book tours on her site. Leave a comment for Katie and you may be the winner to receive a copy of her book, Immortalis Carpe Noctem!
Katie, it has been a pleasure chatting with you. I hope you will stop in again when your next book is released. I wish you much success!

VBT Pit Stop with author Ya Ya of Reflections

Today my guest is Ya Ya.  She is the author of a fabulous poetry book titled Reflections:Thoughts,Passions, and Truths.  Please give her a warm welcome.

Thank you so much for being with us today Ya Ya. 

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I first realized that I wanted to be a writer when I was in 7th grade. I had a very supportive mother and my language arts teacher was wonderful. They both pushed me to try my hand at all areas of writing, including journalism. Poetry was the one that I fell in love with.

How long does it take you to write a book?

This is my first book, and it took me about 6 months of serious writing. My earliest poem was written in 2005, but I’d taken a long break before writing again.

What is your work schedule like when you're writing?

My weekends are devoted to writing. Even if I write something that I don’t like very much, I still do it. It’s like exercise.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I have to have jazz music playing.

How did you publish your books?

I got my book published through Passionate Writer Publishing. They were so helpful and friendly. I submitted a few of my poems and the rest is history.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

I’m inspired by anything that’s going on around me. I read magazines, newspapers, watch the news. I love to write about strangers and their stories—that’s my new thing. Sometimes, I just sit and jot down a few ideas about the things that going on around me.

When did you write your first book and how old were you?

Reflections: Thoughts, Passions, and Truths is my first book. I was 19 when I wrote my first poem, and I’m now 23.

What do you like to do when you're not writing?

I’m a big ‘Mama’s girl’ so, as long as I’m with my mother, I’m happy. We’ll go out to eat together, or we’ll go shopping.

What does your family think of your writing?

They all have mixed opinions about my poems—particularly my sex poems. The only opinion that really mattered was my mama’s, and she was just so happy that I got published, she pretty much overlooked everything else.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

I learned a lot about myself. I learned that if I really push myself, I can produce more than just some cute little poems about butterflies and water. I learned to live through my poems.

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

This is my first book, so I guess that this is my favorite.

Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?

People always tell you to keep a journal so that you write down inspiration, but I suggest that you also write down your feelings at the moment and anything that will help you to recapture the moment and the mood.

Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

I don’t hear too much from my readers. So far, the majority of them have been family and class mates, and they have different feelings about different poems.

Do you like to create books for adults?

I do. I like to know that people my age and older are reading my books.

What do you think makes a good story?

I think that the ability to keep the attention of a reader is vital. It’s hard to do, and if anyone has learned how to do this technique, I appreciate a tip.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I wanted to be a teacher.
Thank you so much for taking time to chat with us today Ya Ya.  Your book looks fantastic,  I just love the cover. 
Ya Ya is on virtual book tour with Authors Supporting Authors.  You can see her schedule to follow her tour at the Virtual Book Tour Cafe.  Her book can be purchased through her publisher at Passionate Writer Publishing
