The Heavenly War Begins! Guest S.C. Mitchell

A prophecy centering on a mortal woman, makes her the focus of events that could lead to Ragnarok, the Twilight of the Norse Gods and the end of the world.

Know this. The Son of Thunder and this daughter of Midgaard will venture to the lands of Svartalheim and Jotunheim, to the very bowels of Utgard Keep. The power of the three artifacts will be reunited and the old ways will pass. A secret from the past is the key to the future, but a life must be freely given if the Golden City is to be saved.

From the icy wastelands of Svartalheim, land of the dark elves, to the towering peaks of Jotunheim, home of the frost giants, and right to the golden gates of Asgaard, the saga begins as war ravages the heavens.

Son of Thunder is the first in the Heavenly War Series, a combination of fantasy, mythology and romantic adventure.

Son of Thunder

The man looked like a god. Then again, he was one. . .

Jord Thorson was a god– the son of Thor, the Norse God of Thunder. In his search to find his missing father, Jord seeks out the mortal, Meghan Larson, who is in possession of his only clue–Megingjörð, Thor’s magical belt of power.

But when the belt decides to take matters into its own hands, locking itself around Meghan’s waist, Jord and Meghan are plunged into the middle of a massive conflict that rages across the heavens.

Giants, magical artifacts, and a golden city in the clouds weren’t exactly what Meghan Larson expected when that amazing belt arrived at her museum. Now Megingjörð is stuck around her waist and talking to her in her head. She’s got to be dreaming, but with the wonders around her and hunky Jord Thorson at her side, Meghan’s not sure she wants to wake up.

Son of Thunder, available at: A

3T Writing Tidbit

What do you know as a reader but forget as a writer?

We writers are constantly looking to improve our writing. We send our babies to contests and critique partners and workshops and more. They send back detailed notes, some of which hurt.

But what if all you needed was to ask three questions? Check out this post by Kathryn Rusch.


Published since 2009, over the years I've accumulated various items of writing wisdom. The Third Tuesday Writing Tidbit showcases these items in no particular order. Click here to see all 3T Tidbits.

Top 10 Posts Countdown #7

Writer's cave hiatus--finishing Assassins Bite among other things. Enjoy the top 10 posts from my blog in the meantime :)

#7 Under Her Spell--Guest Eliza Daly

When a series of failed relationships and business ventures have Monica Jackson doubting her self-worth, she turns to spell casting to attract positive energy and the opportunities needed to achieve her goals.  But can Monica’s belief in spells restore her belief in herself?

Monica creates a spell to find her soul mate, and one to ensure the success of her new romantic event planning company, Enhance Your Romance.  Monica is confident she has found her niche until divorce lawyer Reed Walker opens a practice next door to her office.  The anti-marriage slogan plastered on his office window, and his down-on-love clients, quickly prove detrimental to Monica’s business.  When his arrival appears to trigger a string of bad luck, Monica fears one of her spells sent negative energy into the universe and it has returned to her threefold.  Although Reed is beyond sexy, and she admires his self-confidence, she’ll do whatever it takes to get the universe back on her side, and Reed out of her life. No way is she losing another business.

Homecoming--Guest Meredith Daniels

Happy release day to Meredith Daniels! Her first Samhain title comes out today. Check it out!

Home is where his heart is…once he recognizes what’s in his heart.

Southern Honor, Book 1
Broken in body, mind and spirit after a botched mission in Kuwait, elite Special Forces operative Jack Dresden returns to Devotion, Georgia, both dreading and longing to face his past. He left town on the receiving end of a wicked right hook thrown by the only person who ever made him feel he was right where he belonged.

Dillon Bluff was never good at pretending. Coming out right after high school, it hasn’t been easy dealing with the stigma of being gay in a small, Southern town. When he stumbles across Jack in the throes of a panic attack, one touch reignites the smoldering, hidden torch he’s always carried for his former best friend.

Jack knows he’s messed up, and the last thing he wants to do is hurt Dillon again. But Dillon is determined to take control and show Jack’s heart the way back home. 

Product Warnings
Contains a sexy, scarred Delta Force hero with the hots for his tattooed photojournalist prone-to-skinny-dipping ex-best friend. Threats of creative rope use and plenty of manly loving may leave the reader craving a cigarette—and a man in uniform. 
Available at Amazon, BN.com, Samhain
Always with a tale to tell, Meredith Daniels has been penning stories since she could put pen to paper. She has always found something magical about the journey of characters finding themselves and finding love worth fighting for. Living in Ohio with her husband and three children, she balances being a mother, wife, dark chocolate and coffee addict, all-round super cupcake baker while sneaking in as much writing time as possible. 

Meredith loves to hear from readers and you can find her on Twitter at@meredith_d1

My Writing Process

This particular blog hop is all about authors offering others a glimpse into their work, their work schedules, and perhaps their innermost thoughts. Some of us are quite opposite our real life personas.

So who subjected you to this arduous journey through the innermost working of my mind? 

That would be the very talented romantic suspense author Val Clarizio, who writes the delicious Nick Spinelli mysteries.

Author of:

Click here to find out how she does it!

Q. What am I working on?

Assassins Bite. Biting Love Book 8 is wild with sex, fights, a bumbling but cute cop and a deadly assassin vampire bewildered by love.

Q. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

The blend of character and sex, comedy and heart-breaking moments, action and love.

Q. Why do I write what I do?

Because no one else was writing it at the time :) .

Q. How does your writing process work?

I've evolved it over the years but the basic driver is a strong man and a strong woman who seem opposite but who belong together in every sense of the word. I use Goal and Motive to set the engine, the five plot points to create the story arch, pair the inner journey with the proper theme and then write, filling in and adjusting as needed.

Q. Who will we meet next week (March 17)?

Renee Wildes, fantasy author extraordinaire!

Excerpt | Reviews

Heroine Cheyenne Rafferty is a white wolf shifter who works for the U.S. Forestry Service in Kootenai National Forest. When her truck is destroyed by an unusual earthquake, she doesn’t think her day can get any worse. Until she runs afoul of a demon from the ancient past – and the compelling warrior who followed it forward in time.

Hero Marek awakens 2000 years in the future, to a world all but incomprehensible. Sent to teach modern warriors to combat the Reynak, he now finds the demon the only thing familiar. His people and their epic struggle have been lost to the passage of time. The only one willing to help him is a daughter of the earth, a beautiful shifter woman with the heart of a wolf.

This isn’t your standard werewolf tale. The first of a planned trilogy, it has a strong environmental theme and features werewolves, time-traveling Native American warriors, demons and a resurrected ancient goddess
