Dennis Timothy

Excerpt  of Jack Mangus review of One Heartbeat Past Normal


One Heartbeat Past Normal





























One Heartbeat Past Normal is a collection of macabre short stories written by Dennis Timothy. Each tale is self-contained, and there is no general theme connecting them. They are all, however, tales that are, literally, One Heartbeat Past Normal. Tranquility Park is a noir tale about a retired cop and his favorite diner, and it has the mood and ambiance of a hard-boiled detective story. Grandpa's Flask recounts the last few days of a retired Navy man's life as he tells his grandson stories about serving and the conflicts he'd been part of. A Watched Pot Never Boils is a slice of hill-country tall-telling about a healer and his special gifts. Each story has a weird twist to it: some are dark, but others make you smile. No one story is entirely predictable.


Dennis Timothy's short story collection One Heartbeat Past Normal is a delight. These stories are apt to give the reader a frisson of awe, terror or a slightly uncomfortable feeling of the unknown, in much the same way as the better tales in the old TV series One Step Beyond and Twilight Zone did. Each tale is a self-contained gem, sparkling and enticing, and they bring their own little worlds to life so beautifully. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started at the first tale, Perspective, but I found myself swiftly drawn into that first story and then successively into each of the subsequent tales. The stories in One Heartbeat Past Normal are somewhat like treats that one indulges in during a break or whenever it's possible to slip away from the commotion of the world for some enjoyable reading. I found myself anticipating with delight the start of a new tale and I felt a bit bereft when I realized that I had hit the last page of this book. One Heartbeat Past Normal is very highly recommended.

Review of Wind Raven Book 3 - Agents of the Crown by Regan Walker

Wind Raven 
Book 3 - Agents of the Crown 
by Regan Walker


Tara has been raised right along side her brother by their father, often on one of his ships, so the fact that she loves the sea as much as they do is no surprise to any of them.  But her father still wants her to be a lady and marry well so he sends her to his sister in London so she can experience a season.  But all Tara can think about is how soon she can get back out on the sea with her family.  So when she receives a letter telling her that her father has fallen ill back in America she is all to happy to head back home on the first ship available.
Captain Jean Nicholas Powell, Nick to his friends, does not like the idea of the mission that prinny has put on him to do while on his journey to America to pick up his new schooner.  He is even less pleased when he discovers that he will have a passenger, a female passenger no less, to carry back to America to her family.  But he finds that he is intrigued by this woman and her non lady like behavior on his ship.  She seems to know her way around as ship as well if not better than some of his men.  Can he keep his fascination with the woman in check until they reach America or will his iron will fail him where this intriguing woman is concerned.  



Review:    I enjoy historical romances but was a little concerned about how I would feel about a setting at sea.  I should not have worried, the author gave me a great story that had all the elements necessary to keep me entertained throughout the book.  I enjoyed reading about these 2 main characters and their journey thru the sea to America.  Thnak you to the author for giving me a book that wasn't just a typical romance.

Review of Enduring Everything by M. Sembera

Enduring Everything
M. Sembera

Ren had a rough childhood and things did not get much better as she got older. Leaving an abusive relationship was the first step. Ren has put the past behind and after raising her daughter, she feels its her time to be happy. Ren can not find that peace or happiness till she has dealt with the past.

Jackson has waited a long 20 years to be with Ren, to keep promises he made long ago . When Ren's past keeps popping up, Ren just can not deal with it and starts shutting people out. We all have a past and we all make mistakes but will Ren accept hers before its to late ? Will Ren and Jackson get thru it without making more mistakes and causing more hurts.

This was a remarkably awesome read ! !  I read this in one sitting ! Jackson and Ren have a love like no other. She has to learn to let down her guard and give up some control. Control that she has found to be her peace. Ren is a very strong character and shows she is human! Better yet she is a SURVIVOR !

Dennis Timothy

Welcome to JBR.  Today we have Dennis Timothy with us.

First why don't you tell us about yourself:.

I live in the sleepy little village of Dodge, Nebraska, located in the northeast portion of the state. I am employed at a specialty foods factory. I haven’t been able to quit my day job yet - but, hope to some day.  In addition to writing, I enjoy photography, gardening, and the antics of a very demanding rat terrier named Colby.

Newest Release?

My newest release is a collection of paranormal short stories collected under the title One Heartbeat Past Normal. Each story involves ordinary people who become challenged by extraordinary events. And, each story ends with a unique twist. It has trolls, and faeries, things that go bump in the night, evil antiques, and talking tattoos. So, there is enough content there that everyone should find something to enjoy.

What can we expect from your stories, action, drama, romance, sex, blood and guts?

My first book, Merry Hell, is a humorous, family drama about the Timmons’ family, and their friends, who gather for a Christmas dinner.  All bets are off when the snowstorm of the century traps them at the Timmons’ rural home. Angie Timmons, the strong matriarch of the family, struggles to hold it together as one daughter has life changing news, then the power goes out, and then another daughter goes missing in the storm. This story is full of relatable characters who bring their own quirks to the holiday table. One reviewer compared this work to John Grisham’s Skipping Christmas. And while it does have a holiday theme, it’s a great read anytime of the year.

My next release will be a historical adventure story full of drama, action, a little romance, a generous amount of humor, and some real blood and guts moments.  It involves a young, timid monk named Brother O’Frell who is tasked with leaving Ireland and journeying to Alexandria, Egypt.  The story is set in the seventh century, and follows a na├»ve O’Frell as the world reveals it’s challenges to his trip.  He is joined by an ex-Legionnaire named Cannon; Cannon’s best friend Loren MacRye; and MacRye’s beautiful daughter, Gentry.  Wild animals, highway robbers, slavers, and the murderous Claudius Scrotus are all intent on ending the journey suddenly. The work is entitled The Whiskey Scrolls, and should appeal to young adult and adult readers alike.  It is a very unique coming of age story, and has been compared to Follett’s Pillars of the Earth.

My current book, One Heartbeat Past Normal, has an interesting background. While the majority of the stories are made of whole cloth, two of them “The Brothers” and “Hunting a Haunt” are based on actual events. The story “The Pulse” came from a dream I had one night. And “The Discovery in the Woods” was based on a story my father made up and told me when I was a child.

Do you have a favorite author? If yes, what draws you to that person’s work?

I currently don’t have a favorite author; and I read everything with the exception of Romance. Growing up, two of my favorite authors were Robert Heinlein and Lester Dent, who wrote under the name Kenneth Robeson.  I found their stories to be imaginative and thrilling.

Have there been any other authors who have inspired your work or helped you out with your stories?

Three years ago, I had the chance to meet with Alex Kava. Alex is a member of The Nebraska Writers Guild, and was attending the Spring Conference as a speaker.  After lunch, she and I, and five others retired to a sitting area and just visited. We talked about gardening, dogs, the weather in Nebraska, and how much we hate edits.

Favorite places to travel or visit?

I don’t necessarily need a change of scenery to write, but I have found that I am more productive if I do. I take writing vacations.  Most of One Heartbeat Past Normal was written while I stayed at a cabin in Mahoney State Park. Merry Hell was outlined when I was staying at Estes Park, Colorado.

Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?

I wish I had some advice for other Indie authors that would guarantee them success, but I don’t. It takes time to build a fan base and promote sales. I view myself as a ten-year, overnight success. I would counsel a person to just keep writing and trying.  I also think that using services to professionally format your work, edit your story, and produce a pleasing book cover is vital to 
success.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

If people read my work and enjoy it, I would ask that they spread the word, “like” my Facebook Author Page, blog about me, and buy lots of copies of my books for Christmas, Anniversary, and Birthday presents.

Where can we find your work?
One Heartbeat Past Normal can be found on Amazon,  Goodreads, or Barnes & Noble.

Interview with Dana Roquet

Welcome to JBR.  Today we have Dana Roquet with us.

We are having a give away going on for April. What item are you giving away? (Anyone can win the item by going to the rafflecopter on the right hand side of the pg.)

I will give away(one) copy of my ebook 3 book set of my Heritage Time Travel Romance series which includes Book #1 Out of the Past, Book #2 Into the Future, Book #3 Forevermore

First why don't you tell us a little about yourself?

I live in Iowa and have two daughters and four grandchildren which take a lot of my time. I have a day job and write in my spare time. I also enjoy genealogy and spend time collecting the stories of my family and photographs of generations past. As for my writing, I am currently working on three books. One historical romance which is a sequel to Love’s Vengeance, a civil war romance and a new adult romance.

Newest release?

Forevermore, book #3 and the finale of the time travel adventure of Dave Cameron and his lovely wife, historical romance author Torie Mills Cameron.

Forevermore (Heritage Time Travel Romance #3)



What can we expect from your stories, action, drama, romance, sex, blood and guts?

I am not a blood and guts fan but surprisingly my stories do have some (not a lot) of both. My first story Love’s Vengeance is a historical romance and has complex dialogue with lots of drama and is an old world style of writing. Sex—yes and romance definitely. I wanted a hero who loves his leading lady and says and does all those things that most historical romances don’t allow him to say or do because the story world be over. There is romance throughout the story, not always waiting for it to begin.
In my Heritage Time Travel Romance Series the setting is contemporary and much simpler language. I enjoy a good sex scene but I don’t want that to be the story in anything I write. My time travel adventure is complex and spans hundreds of years and has scores of characters and stories within one. Torie Mills and Dave Cameron have a passion for history and family; you feel the emotion they feel for all those they encounter in their travels.

Do you have a favorite character in your stories? Who? and Why?

I love all the men that I create. Stephen and Timothy from Love’s Vengeance; Dave Cameron and Jeff Allman from my time travel series. Being a woman and a romantic, it is a challenge to create men~~men that are not cheesy or overly sensitive and girlie, masculine without being over the top.

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:

So many interesting things about the Heritage Time Travel Series~~first of all, I created two versions. The steamy original and a PG-13 version with limited sexual content and readers seem to appreciate having a choice. The series is popular with genealogical societies in Iowa and small bookstores and libraries. They appreciate the tamer version. Personally I like the steamy original ;-)
In this time travel series, many of the places that the characters inhabit are real places. Many of the people they encounter are real people. I called and wrote to many real people to get their permission to appear in the book and have cameos, especially in book #1 Out of the Past. Internationally famous cover model Jimmy Thomas who has been on over 4000 covers and happens to be the male model on the cover of each book of the series. My hero Dave Cameron happens to look surprisingly like Jimmy and that fact is a funny thread throughout the story. Most importantly, Jimmy Thomas appears in the story and has a cameo appearance as himself, which is a very unique twist.
Local bands agree to be in in the story and are featured and share scenes with my imaginary characters; businesses, such as the bar Stevie C’s in Grimes, Iowa and the owner Stevie agreed to let me fictionalize his establishment and transplant it to downtown Fremont and into my story. Bill the barber, who lives in Fremont, Iowa, was the real barber in Fremont for 40 years and gave me permission to write him into a chapter. In the chapter, Torie spends with Bill and is based on my first trip to Fremont and the time I spent with him. He still remembered me coming into his barber shop, many years ago. He is the old sage and keeper of the stories of Fremont. The downtown Fremont is fictional. It is actually downtown Grimes, Iowa~~again picked up and transplanted sixty miles to be inhabited by my fictional characters. Reality amid the fiction is big~~even my own sister Julie Demuesy and her husband Paul have a cameo in the story as themselves when Torie travels to visit her sister Sarah, who lives and works at Julie’s real life horse rescue in Colorado. My sister had a hard time wrapping her head around that.
All the covers are my own design. On Out of the Past, the old photograph on the front is actually my own family photo and is three generations of my grandparents. The photo on the back cover of the paperback is another shot of the same house that was located in Fremont. On the cover of Into the Future I used my friend’s house which is located in Minnesota. For the purpose of the cover it is supposed to represent Dave Cameron’s house in Fremont. The photo on the back of the paperback version is a headstone located in a cemetery in Corydon, Iowa which I saw while roaming amid the graves. I loved it, so photographed it. It fit perfectly to represent the headstone for the young cancer victim and character Claire. On Forevermore, the old photo on the back cover of the paperback is my great-grand aunt representing the little girl Coyle, and in the back pages of the paperback version of Forevermore are a collection of photos of family and the characters of the book they represented, which was great fun to include as a little special extra for paperback purchasers.
Have there been any other authors who have inspired your work or helped you out with your stories?
When I wrote my first story Love’s Vengeance, Kathleen E Woodiwiss was my favorite author and my style of writing was very much influenced by her. My first born daughter was even named after my favorite KEW book, Shanna.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

Word of mouth is the biggest help to any author. No amount of exposure will make a book a successful. It is readers telling others. Reviews are always helpful and I live for a nice review.

Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?

Writers, don’t waste your time knocking on the door of big publishers because for the most part they aren’t interested. If you have stories to tell, study up and self-publish a good product. It is a lot of work but so worth it. I love the entire process, especially designing the covers. I decide on them myself and then have a professional cover designer create them.

Do you have a favorite author? If yes, what draws you to that person’s work?

I am addicted to books on audio (all of mine are available on audio and Forevermore is currently in production). Audio books~~the longer the better and so I am currently listening to the Outlander series. I had never read any time travel books. Now that I have written a time travel series it is interesting to see how another author thinks time travel works. Completely different concept as far as the time travel rules and world compared to what I created for my series.

Can you remember one of the first things you wrote? What makes it memorable?

The first story I wrote was for ninth grade English. It was the story of the death of my little sister’s horse when we were young. It was a very heart-wrenching experience and so was the story, because it was the true. We were so little and it was the dead of winter and we had to trudge through thigh high snow and across acres of pastureland to find her body. We finally found her, with her best friend Butterscotch standing nearby. My teacher told me that I had a gift for writing. It was one of the most special and important bits of praise I received in my younger life. It was my first real story with setting scenes, describing landscapes and people, and my first time writing dialogue.

Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your work?

My life. Write what you know. Many of the characters in my time travel series are bits and pieces of me. Brian Mars is based on my uncle Billy and my x-husbands personal battles against cancer. Mindy is based on my best friend growing up. Nearly all of the time travel episodes are based on true stories that I found in ancient newspapers clippings.

Do you have any other interesting hobbies, pets or stories you would like to share?

I am huge into genealogy and have received my Daughters of the American Revolution certification. Four of my great grandfathers fought in the war. During my research I discovered that my great-great grandmother’s death certificate was completely wrong information and I had to provide proof to get her death certificate amended by the state. It was grueling work, gathering evidence for someone who has been dead over one hundred years. Thankfully she was from a family that had a large presence and I was able to find references to her in history books and such and succeeded in having the death certificate amended.
Also I have spent a lot of time caring for feral cat colonies which involves trapping the cats to be neutered and spayed. They are then returned to the colony and caregivers (such as me) provide food, water and shelter, so that stray cats can live a quality life on the streets, on their own. It is rewarding work and because they are wild animals and don’t want to be house pets, it is almost like having a wildlife adventure. I once arrived to find a huge deer at the feral cat compound snooping around. It bolted when it saw my car and nothing funnier than to see a dozen cats take off chasing a deer across an open field. Also to have thirty cats recognize my vehicle and come running for dinner is a pretty amazing sight.

Favorite places to travel or visit?

Rome Italy was the most beautiful place I have ever been to and my very favorite. Rich in history and there is never a dull moment. Second would be Switzerland, although everyplace is either climbing up or down a hill or mountain of some sort when you are there.

And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:( Include links to were we can find your work)

How about a tiny taste of Forevermore and a little peek at one of my yummy hero Dave’s many interesting time travels. In this scene he has time traveled (warped) and is inhabiting a 15 year old boy back in the year 1911. Never knowing where they will end up, my time travelers are often just trying to figure out what is going on and fit in. Also~~this chapter is based on a true story of a distant cousin of mine.
Dave

“Thomas, let me have it,” demanded a dark-haired boy of about fifteen.
“James, wait a minute,” Thomas snapped. He spun the cylinder of the revolver and added another round, then handed off the box of ammo to me. “Lester, hold this.”
I stood beside the two on the sidewalk of downtown Fremont outside a storefront. A banner across the front of the brick building read Hardware & Mercantile.
It was always a pain to arrive in the middle of a warp and be with a bunch of people. I had no idea what was going on or who I was. There was a glass window so I was able to get a look at myself and saw that I was also a kid of probably the same age. I had light-blond hair and was tall and thin. I wore a plain white cotton shirt and suspenders holding up my early style of blue jeans.
I closed the box of ammo and looked about the street. It appeared to be midday and quite a few people were strolling along the sidewalks. The weather was warm and I decided it was probably early summertime. I could hear what sounded to be most likely a hammer against an anvil from the livery across the street and watched as a Ford Model T chugged past us on the dusty dirt road.
I looked back to the boys to see the one called Thomas cupping his hand around his eyes to block the glare of the sunshine as he looked through the plate-glass window.
“Here he comes,” he said.
A fourth boy yanked open one of the double doors to the store and came out carrying a leather holster and the packaging from the gun tucked under one arm.
“Aaron, let me see it,” Thomas ordered. I got the feeling that this kid Thomas was the ring leader of this group although Aaron appeared to be the oldest of the four.
“Here,” Thomas said to the boy James, handing him the gun. It looked to be a Colt six-shooter, the kind that every TV and movie viewer would later associate with cowboys and the Wild West. I didn’t know what year I was currently in but by the surroundings and style of our clothing I would guess probably 1910 or so considering there were only one or two other Model T car’s along Main Street. Mostly horses and buggies were lined up along the road as people went about their business.
“Thomas, it isn’t yours, you know,” Aaron barked as he handed the younger boy the holster, then continued reading a small pamphlet he had in hand. He held out the empty wooden gun case toward me. “Lester, hold this.”
I took the case and noticed the Colt emblem burnt into the lid of the box before I tucked it under my arm while I watched Thomas trying to strap the holster around his hips. It was fancy tooled leather and there were brass rivets decorating the belt.
“Hand it over,” Thomas said to James and he reached for the gun.
It happened in an instant. As the boy James held out the gun to Thomas, it slipped from his hands. As both boys grabbed for it, it discharged and all the boys jumped, as did I.
“Damn it!” Thomas barked.
“Oh, shit!” I shrieked, my voice cracking. I looked down at my crotch to see a stain of bright red spreading across the front of my pants. Dropping the gun and ammo boxes, I bent over, reaching down to grab my dick. To say the pain was excruciating doesn’t even start to describe it. I couldn’t catch my breath. A searing burn radiated from my groin all the way up to the left side of my waist.
“Jesus Christ!” I gasped. My hands were already smeared with blood. It dripped down my pants and from between my fingers, spotting the ground below me. I began to stumble, swaying unsteadily on my feet and I could tell I was going to pass out. Thomas slammed the gun into the holster and grabbed my arm just before I did a face-plant right onto the concrete sidewalk.
“I’ll go see if Doc Meythaler is in his office!” Aaron shouted, dashing down the street.

Forevermore~~

This is my last day on the blog. Thank you Julie for letting me come over and play. Since I have told you about my contemporary series, Freefall, today I thought I would tell you about the other things I write.

I have a bestselling paranormal romance series featuring large felines. Tiger Nip has tigers, lions, panthers and the rare but wonder liger and tigon. I love tigers and when I decided to write shifters they were a natural fit for me.

There are two books out in the series and one Tiger Bite right now and I’m beginning work on the next book, Finding More.




Craving More, Book 1: A late night tryst between Corrine Hart and Jett Montgomery-Murphy finds two tigers discovering their mates and two humans stunned in disbelief. Add a brother, a best friend, a crazy ex-girlfriend, and you have a recipe for disaster.





Claiming More, Book 2: Sampson Hart has known Mary Jane Poppy for ten years. She’s his sister’s best friend and business partner, and has had a crush on Sam for years. When the mating pull hits him and points in her direction, he’s ready to claim her as his own. Given their history, it should be simple. Right?







Dallas & Kacie: Tiger Bite, Book 2.5: The holiday season is here and Kacie Cook plans to stay in and relax. No work, no family…no problem. Dallas Anderson is searching for something and he doesn’t even know it yet. Could a chance meeting turn both their lives upside down and point them in a new direction?

There are three more books planned in the Tiger Nip series and two more Bites.

In regards to future books I have an Angel series set in the Underworld called Praetorian Guards that I hope to start releasing this year.

In 2015, I have a brand new series, Mystic Zodiac, that will have a new release each month.

The atmosphere in a hanger can be one filled with excitement, trepidation, anxiety and so much more. Everyone experiences something a little different. Just like the heroines in the Freefall series.

In Caught in the Moment, the heroine refuses to even get in an airplane. Tight, cramped spaces are not her thing. She is more than happy to hang out in the hanger.

In my newest book Fly Guy Next Door, Kegen and Marlowe end up at the Chute Shack dancing under the stars. This is the first time Marlowe has been out to the Shack. She’s filled with a sense of awe and wonder being out there.

I spent a bit of time browsing the Internet for pictures of skydiving hangers. I knew the pictures I had in my mind but wanted to be able to add images to my Pinterest so other could see.











Another shot.

Angela Blount




Eighteen-year-old Angeli doesn’t “fit in.” She’s never been on a single date, and she lives vicariously through an online world of storytelling. With the pressures of choosing a practical future path bearing down, she needs a drastic change. Too old to run away from home, she opts instead to embark on a solo 2-month road trip. But her freedom is tempered by loneliness — and anxiety tests her resolve as she comes face-to-face with her quirky internet friends.

Aside from contracting mono and repeatedly getting herself lost, Angeli’s adventure is mired by more unforeseen glitches — like being detained by Canadian authorities, and a near-death experience at the hands of an overzealous amateur wrestler. Her odyssey is complicated further when she unwittingly earns the affections of two young men. One a privileged martial artist; the other a talented techie with a colorful past.

Bewildered by the emotions they stir, Angeli spurns the idea of a doomed long-distance relationship. But she is unprepared for the determination of her hopeful suitors. In the wake of her refusal, one man will betray her, and the other will prove himself worthy of a place in her future.

Angeli sets off in search of a better understanding of herself, the world, and her place in it. What she finds is an impractical love, with the potential to restore her faith in happy endings.

A true story with an unapologetically honest outlook on life, love, faith, and adventure — Once Upon A Road Trip is a coming-of-age memoir.








Author Bio: Award-winning author Angela N. Blount is a Minnesota native, transplanted to the deep South--where she currently resides with her understanding husband, their two children, and a set of identity-confused cats. A Registered Nurse by trade, she is also a freelance content editor, former book reviewer for RT Book Reviews, a memoirist (though, not much a fan of referring to herself in first-person *cough*), craft blogger, sporadic poet, and webcomic artist.

In her spare time, Angela enjoys reading, coffee shop loitering, and all things geeky. Her latest project is a YA sci-fi series.
