Let's talk about aliens!

I have a confession. When I was little, I had this strange obsession with horror movies. They freaked the hell out of me, but for some reason they were my favorite to watch. My parents would take me to the video store and let me pick out one horror movie to watch with my dad, while my sister stood cowering in the kitchen.

Well one such outing, I chose the movie Fire in the Sky. The movie is based upon a man's claim to have been abducted. In the movie we witness the man being tortured, and by the end of that movie I had my first true fear--aliens. I remember staring out my bedroom window for weeks, unable to sleep, too afraid to sleep. This is the scene that scarred me for life:



See, I was so afraid because I could reason why not only is it possible that aliens exist--it is probable. And that young experience led to continuous interest in aliens. I learned about the various theories, the likelihood of their existence, and etc.

None of it amounted to anything other than interest…

How old are you?
I’m a teen, writing out the stresses of life. lol . What/who inspired you to begin writing?
Hmm…I guess, just watching other people come up with great things inspired me. I wanted to write something of my own so that other people could enjoy it, as much as I enjoy other people’s creations. . What genres do you prefer to write and why?
Romance/adventure/paranormal/mystery etc…I kind of put all of them together to create my own genre. I like writing in that because it has the romance, which is the part I like to read. (Writing it isn’t as fun as it sounds. Lol) And ad…

Author Name: Victoria Scott  . Title: THE COLLECTOR: A DANTE WALKER NOVEL . Release Date: spring 2013 . Blurb: . Dante Walker is flippin' awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence has made him one of Hell's best--a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.
Stealing souls is nothing personal. Dante's an equal opportunity collector and doesn't want it any other way. But he'll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:
Collect Charlie Cooper's soul within 10 days.
Dante doesn't know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that's a permanent ticket out of Hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he's come to collect--he realizes t…

YA Author Interview: Cindi Madsen!

_______________________________________________



Author Name: Cindi Madsen . Title: ALL THE BROKEN PIECES . Release Date: December 2012 . Blurb:
What if your life wasn't your own?
Liv comes out of a coma with no memory of her past and two distinct, warring voices inside her head. Nothing, not even her refection, seems familiar. As she stumbles through her junior year, the voices get louder, insisting she please the popular group while simultaneously despising them. But when Liv starts hanging around with Spencer, whose own mysterious past also has him on the fringe, life feels complete for the first time in, well, as long as she can remember.
Liv knows the details of the car accident that put her in the coma, but as the voices invade her dreams, and her dreams start feeling like memories, she and Spencer seek out answers. Yet the deeper they dig, the less things make sense. Can Liv rebuild the pieces of her broken past, when it means questioning not just who she is, but what she is?
