Book Tour – The Creative Journal for the Inspirationally Challenged


It is a truth universally acknowledged that any writer, in possession of a beautiful idea, will have a bad day and need to mainline caffeine. Ok well, maybe not, but as writers ourselves we know that everyone has good and bad days. The most important thing is that you keep writing.


About The Authors

Monica Corwin


Monica Corwin is an outspoken writer who attempts to make romance accessible to everyone no matter their preferences. As a new Northern Ohioian Monica enjoys snow drifts, three seasons of weather, and disliking Michigan. When not writing Monica spends time with her daughter and her ever growing collection of tomes about King Arthur.


Decadent Kane


Decadent Kane, author of the trouble with elves series, writes paranormal romance with heat. She lives in Wyoming with a full house: 3 dogs, 1 cat, 1 guinea pig, 1 rat, 2 kids, and 1 fiance.

An elfess in human form, Decadent enjoys dipping her fingers into the human realm where she took pen to paper and began the tales of the trouble with elves. Her obsessions include reading, Dean Winchester, and honey.

She will devour your soul with glimpses of the feral ridden drow elves, with their dark skin and soul consuming. She’ll sneak morsels of naughty thoughts to you via goblins, and seduce you into stepping inside the elven realm where females disappear when lust takes over among other elfish troubles.

Beware the sprites.

Follow the wisps.

But never look a drow elf king in the eyes…


Author Interview

Thanks for joining me today. Please tell our followers about you.
Well, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, reading, writing, and repairing old typewriters. I mainly write paranormal romance and this book is my way of giving back to the writers of the world.

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Just the promise of beautiful moments. Even simple things. Just a new experience.

If you could hang out with one famous person for one day, who would it be and why?
Benedict Cumberbatch (for obvious reasons) or Edgar Allan Poe if I can pick a dead person. They would both be so clever and fun to chat with.

What’s the story behind your latest book?
I just wanted to create something to help those suffering from a lack of inspiration.

Tell us your writing process
I don’t really have one. I start on typewriter then type that in my computer and finish it when I do. I don’t really have a process per se.

What tips can you give other authors who are looking to get the word out about their book?
Facebook or blog tours are a great way. Bookbub deals are also a good way if you want to spend some money.

When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
When I was in high school English. I’ve always enjoyed writing.

What are you working on next?
Working on rewriting a old novella called, King Takes Queen, out in September.

Do you have any special/extraordinary talents?
I sing rather well.

Who are your favorite authors?
That is too hard. Off the top of my head: Jack Kerouac, Anne Bishop, Megan Hart, Maggie Stiefvater, Karen Harbaugh.

What do you like to do with your free time?
Just read, write, fix old typewriters. Also spend time with my toddler.

Any final thoughts?
Thanks for having me!!

Book Tour – The Drowning God

The Drowning God

Title: The Drowning God
Author: James Kendley
Publisher: Harper Voyager Impulse
Genre: Supernatural Thriller
Format: Kindle/Paperback

The Drowning God

The Drowning God, a paranormal thriller by James Kendley, is one of 30 projects selected out of 4,563 submissions for Harper Voyager’s new digital-first expansion — release date July 28, 2015!

Detective Tohru Takuda faces his own tragic past to uncover modern Japan’s darkest secret–The Drowning God.

Few villagers are happy when Takuda comes home to investigate a foiled abduction, and local police enlist powerful forces to shut him out. Takuda sacrifices his career and family honor to solve the string of disappearances in the dark and backward valley of his youth, but more than a job is at stake. Behind the conspiracy lurks the Kappa, a monstrous living relic of Japan’s pagan prehistory. Protected long ago by a horrible pact with local farmers and now by coldly calculated corporate interests, the Kappa drains the valley’s lifeblood, one villager at a time.
Takuda and his wife, Yumi, are among the few who have escaped the valley, but no one gets away unscarred. When Takuda digs into the valley’s mysteries, Yumi’s heart breaks all over again. She wants justice for her murdered son, but she needs an end to grief. Even if Takuda survives the Kappa, the ordeal may end his marriage.
With Yumi’s tortured blessing, Takuda dedicates his life to ending the Drowning God’s centuries-long reign of terror. He can’t do it alone. A laconic junior officer and a disarmingly cheerful Buddhist priest convince Takuda to let them join in the final battle, where failure means death–or worse. The journey of these three unlikely warriors from uneasy alliance to efficient team turns THE DROWNING GOD’s mystery into an adventure in friendship, sacrifice and courage.
