Summer is winding down. Kids are heading back to school, and parents are getting back into the school day routine. What better way to unwind after a long day, than to sit down with a good book? Today’s authors have a variety for you – from Western to Sci-Fi, from Historical Fiction to Humor. Two are familiar voices on Red River Radio, and two are entirely new. Join us as we get to know them better!

Ken Farmer

Ken Farmer didn’t write his first full novel until he was sixty-nine years of age. He often wonders what the hell took him so long. At age seventy-seven…he’s currently working on book number twenty-five. He has won several national awards for his novels. He is the author of the Nations Series, Bone and Lorraine Series, The Black Eagle Force Series and many more.

Mari Collier

Mari Collier was born on a farm in Iowa. Since then she’s lived in Arizona, Northwest Washington, and moved to Southern California after retiring from Nintendo of America. She is the curator for the Accessions Committee at the local Historical Society and volunteers as a docent at the Old Schoolhouse Museum. Mari is the author of Chronicles of the Maca Series, Star Lady Tales Series, and The Chronicles of Tonath Series

Philip Rivera

Philip Rivera recently arrived on the self-publishing scene wearing cargo shorts, a polo shirt, deck shoes and with his youngest child strapped to his body. As an author, he proves that minivans, child-rearing, husbandly duties and teaching high school are all lethal weapons when placed in his whimsical mind. His first book, Suburban Luchador: Memoirs From Suburbia, was written entirely on a riding lawnmower in his sunny Florida suburb for motivational purposes. 

Tune in Monday at 4:00 PM Eastern

Marketing – EEEEK

Standard

Cereal Authors

Writers and authors are often seeking advice regarding marketing their work. As an author, I’m no exception to that rule. After all, in today’s world, who doesn’t need a little extra help? Most authors realize that marketing their work is no longer a choice; it is a mandatory part of the sales process. Also, most authors have read or heard it all before, but sometimes hearing the same tips from a different voice clicks in a different way, and those tips become useful tools. I’m not sure there are any secrets out there; most techniques seem to be a combination of common sense and consistency. Yes, there are fads, but like most fads, the same goes for author tricks, they come and go. I’m sure every author is familiar with or already does the things I’m about to share. For you, we’re on the same page, but if you’re a…

Walking A Mile In Her Shoes, Part 1

Left -SadieNichol, RuthDay, BabeBaron - James Brennan (with hat on)tennis champion My mother is second from the left.


In the mid-1960s, my mother, Ruth, saved a toddler’s life when our family was a Lake Rick-A-BearLake, in Kinnelon New Jersey. She was heading for the snack bar on the beach and coming along the path of trees that ran beside the lake just past the picnic tables she saw it in the water apparently having fallen off the bank. No one else was around or watching the baby. She waded into the water and grabbed the child. I came along shortly after and one of the beachgoers rushed up to me and said, your mother saved that baby over there from drowning.” I didn’t say a thing while looking to the side. I couldn’t see the baby with the crowd of people huddled around, many of them talking loudly.

But the longer they live the closer they come to joining Lucifer’s ranks in Hell. Their only hope is to find their soul keepers, and love. After an attack by a demon left her injured and weak Amber Fitzpatrick welcomed the attention and caring of her rescuer Jacob—until he turned into an abusive monster. The night Amber flees the possessive, extraordinarily toxic relationship Jacob reveals his true demonic nature. Zach has more than Lucifer’s minions to contend with. Each day brings him closer to Hell. For fifty years he’s walked the thin line between sanity and giving in to his dark urges. Urges that go against his calling as a healer and a teacher. Every battle drives him closer to the edge, feeds his inner demon and pushes him to find a permanent solution to death. When Zach meets Amber he sees a chance for salvation. But Amber’s experience with Jacob makes her afraid to start any kind of relationship with Zach, especially discovering he’s not that different then the man she walked away from. Can she set her fear aside and save Zach before she loses him to the darkness forever?
