Author Bio

My first word was "cookie." That tells you just about everything you need to know about me.

I was born in Columbia, South Carolina weighing a meager three pounds, which was tenuous back in those days. As usual, I was early for my own birthday by three months. My theory is everyone's punctuality is innate. I'm early for almost everything.

My folks moved to Atlanta when I was nine months old and I stayed there until I was twenty-four. My itch was Manhattan. I can still remember signaling my first taxi and when that checker cab pulled over for me, I became Audrey Hepburn. Even though I understand the whys, I miss those over sized cabs and their character. There's nothing glamorous in putting your hand out for a yellow Prius.

I fell for a "Yankee" and never made it back to Atlanta. We tied the knot and made three beautiful children. Funny, my youngest son read the first few pages of VIRTUE, and his only comment was, "This is fiction, right?"
My friends and family have been telling me to write for years. The challenge was coming up with the story. VIRTUE was inspired by scandalous newspaper headlines. A Governor got caught with an escort. That had me scratching my head. Why would a powerful man risk his career? And what about the escort? She looked like a pretty girl and came from a nice family. Then I researched the history of prostitution and came to understand why it is referred to as "the oldest profession." Yes, prostitution is in The Bible.
My second novel, MY FATHER'S AFFAIR, which should be published by June of 2013, was inspired by a true story. I took that story and raised the proverbial stakes. I changed the era and the setting. Things were much different in the early sixties. Small towns are like Cheers where everybody knows your name. But I think the most important aspect of writing this novel was the narrator. The reader sees the story through Ellie's eyes, the thirteen year old daughter, which intensifies the emotions.
Writing gets me out of bed every morning. Okay, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are equally motivating. If I'm not writing, I'm reading. There is nothing better than a great read. My biggest hope is that you find pleasure reading my novels.

CHAPTER ONE


CANDICE:  PREPARING FOR THE INTERVIEW

1983
New York City


No, I’m not a virgin, and no, I’m not a prude, but I have slept with only three men.  The first was my husband.  The second was the private investigator I hired to see if my husband was cheating.  The third was my first one-night stand to see how it felt to have sex with a stranger.  Anyway, that paltry number will most likely soar to three men a day as if it were a tooth brushing or vitamin regimen.
So here I sit, despite my weak résumé, doing research for my interviews reading Penthouse Forum articles, if you can call them “articles,” along with a slew of other magazines wrapped in cellophane.  My mouth is slack-jawed with astonishment; I feel like I just fell off the sexual hay truck.  What the hell is infantilism?
            My first interview is tonight with André.  He’s the concierge at The Regal, a renowned five-star hotel in Manhattan.  André will be in charge of all of my appointments if I get the job as the “in-house” call girl.  If all goes well, I get passed on to Robert, the owner of The Regal, the following evening.  And if he approves, I proceed to the final interview with a regular client named Conner whose turn-on is humiliation.  He masochist, me sadist. 
The girl I’ll be replacing has been a patient teacher and friend encouraging me with a “You can do this” mantra and having me respond with “I think I can, I think I can” optimism.  She even took me shopping for the get-ups I would need for each interview.  For André, she picked lingerie a bride would wear on her wedding night.  Sexy, yet classic.  For Robert, she chose a French maid outfit complete with black fishnet stockings and patent leather stilettos.  I was fine with both ensembles.
Now comes the juicy part.  My outfit for the masochist.  Head to toe leather.  Even the leash is leather.  My thigh-high black boots have four-inch heels and I’ll be lucky if I can pass the hour without falling on my face made up with smoky eyes and burgundy lips.  The only time I dressed up was on Halloween or when I would sneak my brother’s little league uniform out of the Salvation Army bag and pretend I was a baseball player, which I would’ve preferred to the tutu I wore as a ballerina enduring the first, second and third positions of torture.
My mentor offered advice for each interview:  “André is a gentleman.  He’s going to study you the way an art collector would appraise a painting.  (Translation: Would men be willing to spend five Benjamins for an hour of your time?)  If he likes the painting, he’ll pass it on to Robert.  Now Robert is a man’s man.  On the outside he seems like John Wayne, rough and tough around the edges, but he’s really no different than the average Joe wanting worship and adoration.  Just behave in awe at all of his Dale Carnegie accomplishments and you’ll have him wrapped around your finger in a New York minute, which is exactly how long it will take him to climax.  Both André and Robert are vanilla ice cream sex.  Conner’s a different story.  Treat him like a dog who just chewed up your designer stilettos.”
I felt confident about André and Robert, but Conner had me anxious, no, terrified.  What in God’s name was I thinking?  It’s not like I announced at the family dinner table, “When I grow up, I want to be a prostitute.”   I remember wanting to be a princess, perhaps a teacher, and most of all, just like Mommy.  I took the high road.  It just didn’t work out. 





My (short)Review For Virtue:

To be honest.. I was skeptical at first, if I really should chose to review this book. I mean I often read books of this kind of genre, but I'm a cover addict and so I normally don't read books like this one. It's the first time I read a book which cover I don't like that much. It could be a better one, but that's just my personal opinion. To come to a point, I was soo surprised by the content that I still can't believe it! Virtue is written soo freaking well and the characters are so colourful described that I have no idea how I could form my thoughts into words! ♥ Thanks Mrs. Bassen for writing this book. Like I said, I'm reading many books of this genre, but never read one with such an amazing idea behind! The whole story is - for me - so weird that it could be a true story. x-D ♥
4,5 of 5 stars from me (0.5 because of the cover... sorry for that, but I can't give 5 with this cover.^^ :-*)




Q)  As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
A)  I wanted to be a commercial airline pilot.  I was such a tomboy and back in the late seventies, males dominated the airways.  Imagine being on a plane, the year is 1978, and you hear the following announcement: “Good afternoon, my name is Allison, and I’ll be your captain today, taking you to an altitude of 35,000 feet.”    Every man on the plane would have grabbed his oxygen mask and started praying!

Q)  What inspired you to write your first book?
A)   I always wanted to write, but I needed the plot. The former governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer, and his scandal with escorts made me question why a man would risk his career, reputation, and his family all for sex.  Then I thought…what makes a nice girl from a middle-class family sell her body?  Intrigue led to research and a story was born.

Q)  Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
A)  Virtue was ripped from the headlines.  The book I am editing right now, My Father’s Affair, evolved from a story my mom told me about a relative of hers that cheated on her husband.

Q)  What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating any of your books?
A)  I remember typing, “The End,” thinking I was finished and popped open the bubbly.  Little did I realize I would spend another three months editing and proof reading.  I must have deleted the word “that” a thousand times.  When you read your sentences out loud, you really find the mistakes.  You hear them.  Then you still send the book out to be proofed by a professional!  There is nothing worse than reading a novel filled with typos and grammatical errors.  It’s usually a deal breaker for me.

Q)  What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
A)  This might be too much information, but I scheme and plot in the bathtub.  There aren’t any distractions and I do my best thinking with a good, steamy soak.

Q)  Is there a message in your novel/novels that you want readers to grasp?
A)  One of my reviewers said it best.  There’s no such thing as a perfect white-picketed fence.  That’s when you discover someone’s true character.  How do they fix the fence?

Blogtour ~ Rezi #58 (review): Vampire World by Rich Douglas


Mrs. Potter’s Book Publicity Services

Presents

Blog Tour for Vampire World by Rich Douglas

Blurb/Synopsis

A popular teen is bitten by a vampire during a steamy night of making out with her boyfriend. After the bite, she wakes up in a cruel orphanage in Vampire World, with no memory of her past. She’s left with very little; only fangs, pale skin and a keen desire for blood.

Marissa, who’s named Janice in Vampire World, escapes the ghastly orphanage thanks to Mr. John FreeCut, an old, benevolent vampire who adopts Janice because he wants to foster children he could never have. He says her parents died in a crash. Beautiful, innocent and thrust into an enigmatic world she has no memory of, Janice must face many challenges. The grueling blood hostess job. The multiple stalkers and creepers who are hungry for her and her blood. The dizzying fireball competition. And most challenging, the fact that she doesn’t look or act like a vampire.

Janice is emotionally overwhelmed. Thankfully she makes some friends, including Brett BloodCut. Brett and Janice are immersed in a passionate romance, and Brett helps Janice adjust to her new world by giving her the love, confidence and knowledge she needs to survive as a vampire. Janice finds a way to succeed in such a problematic world. Things go well for Janice, though not for long. A stranger knows the truth about her past.

Slowly but surely Janice discovers the truth that she is being lied to by the ones she loves. She must learn the secret behind TriFang, and ultimately accept the stinging reality that things are not always what they seem. Could the truth ever be so bloody?

My (short)review:

I'm in love with vampire books so I have read so many vampire books I really can't count them. Every book follows a similar scheme, but not this! Vampire World is an extraordinary book which I loved sooo much to read! ♥ The idea is just awesome. I really like how the characters are drawn and I can imagine every single scene in this book because everything is written so colourful that I just had an image in mind, when I read the first page - and this was still till the last page a wonderful thing! ♥
Thank you Mr. Douglas for writing a book like this, which will be in my mind for a loooo~ng time!
5 of 5 stars from me.

Synopsis:
There are some beings in this world, long thought to be extinct. Some seek to protect them, others want control, but some . . .  some are hell bent on their destruction.
Audrey was taken from her father, hidden away from the world, and tortured for five years. She was rescued, but is she really safe, or is there someone else waiting to betray her? Can she trust those who saved her? Can she learn to accept who she really is?
Stone was on a routine mission to extract valuable information from a rival clan of paranormals. Instead, he and his team find something much more valuable: a scarred, damaged young woman who holds many secrets, and whose power is beyond anything they could ever have imagined. There is much more to Audrey than meets the eye and Stone is determined to protect her.
Audrey and Stone are about to find out it’s hard to know who to trust.

Author Bio
Oh jeez…do you know how many people I told I didn’t want to write this? So here is the one my friend made me:
Becca Vincenza lives in wonderful Michigan. She has a love for Skittles, rainbows, Star Wars, *giggles* and Hot Men. She spends time in her basement with Airicka... Apparently that's where the best ideas come from.
Any who....she loves meeting new people, so feel free to message her on Facebook and friend her on Goodreads!
Although her phone number will not be given out because, well...she doesn't like heavy breathing.

So a sort of serious one: For real, I am a geek. I grew up watching Star Wars, and my father read Lord of the Rings to us, along with the C. S. Lewis series. I love to write. In all honesty, it took me a lot of work to get where I am today and I don’t regret a moment of it. Reading and writing are honestly the best things ever. I couldn’t be happier that my parents put me through so much extra help. Anyways! Me, me, me…. Huh…I love paranormal stuff…Love it.



Excerpt:
“I deserved most of these scars. But…” My hand went instinctively to touch the one on my face, but Stone’s hand was already there, touching unflinchingly at the puckering, revolting scars.
            “No, you didn’t deserve any of these scars, especially these.” He leaned down and kissed each scar, length for length. I closed my eyes against the sweet attack. While he was holding me earlier, he laid me down now, his body lightly touching mine but never pressing on me. When I opened my eyes, his were a deep purple looking back at me. “You are the most stunning woman I have ever met.” He leaned down and kissed my lips this time. I lifted slightly when it felt like he was going to pull away. My hands moved to his hair. I understood why his hands had always sought out my hair, even when I didn’t think he realized he was doing it. When we were at the cabin, which felt like weeks before, we would be sitting on the deck and his hand would be touching and lightly tugging strands of my hair. I never complained because it placed me into this relaxed feeling. Now I was touching his hair, feeling how it slipped past my fingers, leaving strange tingling feelings I couldn’t stop.
            Stone groaned and his body pushed lightly onto mine. His lips left mine, and when I tried to follow, he nudged my head back into place as he moved to kiss my scars again. He touched the damaged part of my lips and I felt his tongue touch every ridge. I shivered violently. I moved my head slightly so that I could kiss him back. He let me this time, allowing me to control the kiss, to take it at my speed. I was nervous, but I touched his lips with my tongue and he opened for me. I practically sighed when the taste of him flooded in. I pulled away first, trying to get air.
            “Gods, I don’t ever want to stop kissing you.” Stone’s hand moved from my waist up. I squirmed lightly, feeling uncomfortable memories surfacing. I tried to push them away, reminding myself who I was with.

Being heavily pursued by Damien, forces Allison to decide whether or not to open herself up again. Her attraction to him is undeniable, and she finds herself being brought back to life by the mere presence of him.

Author Bio
In Changed Forever, I shared with you some interesting things about the number thirteen. There will be more in book two. But, do you really believe there are energy patterns like that which affect our lives? Let me tell you a few things about thirteen in my life. My name has thirteen letters. I was born in the sign of Scorpio, which is represented in tarot by Key 13. I got my first job at the age of thirteen. I worked there until I graduated from high school. I had one other job after that. Then at the age of twenty-six, thirteen years after I got my first job, I switched to a good paying job which I kept for many years. There are other significant thirteens, but this is a short bio so I’ll skip to the present. On July 13, 2012, a Friday the thirteenth, a freak accident at work broke a bone in my hand. It was bad and needed surgery. I decided it wasn’t a problem but an opportunity; time to prepare myself, and get The Dreams of Sara Knight ready for publication. Exactly one year later, on July 13, I received the edited copy of my manuscript back from my editor. I was ready to go. So, here we are in 2013 and my life course is changing again as I publish my first novel. And by the way, as I do this, I have been studying with a western mystery school for 13 years. So, you decide, is life more about patterns of energy than we normally consider? It certainly is. We are vital energy beings first, and live in an electrical universe. Someday I’ll write the whole story and share it with you.

Back Cover Copy

I hope you like the front cover. Isn’t that beautiful artwork? It’s called, The Connection. To me, it portrays the same thing as the yin-yang symbol, but in a modern, artistic, fractalized kind of way. Look at the front cover again. See how the two archetypal powers are intertwined in a beautiful swirling embrace; locked in an eternal dance with each other.
The alchemists often referred to these two divine principles as gold and silver, or the sun and moon. They were always pursuing the secret of secrets, the perfect relationship between them. One who succeeded in their art was born anew. See the new offspring being born in the picture?
This picture also depicts the inter-connectedness between the spiritual realm and the natural world. It even looks like penetration into the dream world. Can you see it?
Now, after you’ve read the book, look at it again. See if your knowledge and appreciation for this dynamic, rhythmic interchange hasn’t become more ecstatic. Beautiful art can touch the heart, so can beautiful thinking. Hopefully, The Dreams of Sara Knight will inspire beautiful thinking



Excerpt 
“The short version is that we learn as we go. As we’re living, we are constantly learning and adapting; but this doesn’t just happen. There are complex processes going on underneath the surface, in your subconsciousness, that make it happen. It’s gathering, combining, mixing and processing all the different things you experience. All that gets mixed in with all your hopes, and dreams and everything you think and feel. It’s a massive amount of many different kinds of information that must be processed and made ready for use.
“But that’s not all; your subconscious processes things according to their level of importance. The things you do a lot are considered more important. The things you get emotional about are considered more important. So your subconscious is also prioritizing all that information for your benefit.
“And that’s not all; your subconscious experiences things beyond this physical realm. In that realm, the subtle realm, space and time are different than they are here, so your subconscious knows things beyond the time that you experience. To put it plainly, girls, your subconscious knows things before they happen here in the physical realm.” Cindy paused to give the girls a chance to speak.
Sara spoke up first. “So that’s how people can be guided by their dreams. Now I get it.”
“That’s right. Everything gets processed together, and your subconscious presents you with ideas and suggestions based on all of that. When you need an answer to a question, the answer comes from your subconscious. When you establish a certain belief, and a way of living and relating to your subconscious, you get access to things that most people are unaware of. Advanced souls, and certainly awakened ones, get that kind of help.”

Quotes:
"I would like to take the opportunity of this book tour to inspire people to go beyond the ordinary, therefore, here are some quotes I’d like to sprinkle along the way" (Steven Misosky):

“A dream that is not interpreted is like a letter that has not been opened.”-The Talmud

“The aim of my teaching is enlightenment, awakening from the dream state of separateness into the  reality of the One. In short, my teaching is focused on realizing what you are.”-Adyashanti

Here is my review for Changed Forever! :D 



Cover:
I like the cover. It isn't "quite".. there is movement in it and this is what I like. It's not similar with pastel colours but similar to a rainbow coloured pen with which the author wrote Changed Forever. :D

Content:
Wow I really can't say anything about the actually content, because it's so worth to read that I can't tell you something which you will read, when you have the book (which is currently $0.99 like it's written above and 99 pennies are the minimum of what I would spend now that I've read it). First it seems like a kind of a religious thingy, because there was written about God and what God does and doesn't. But that opinion totally turned in a other direction. Now I think that this book is a philosophical and a bit esotherical read about questions that I'm asking myself almost everyday. Now I have satisfational answers and facts I can and will think about. I just love the twins Kara and Sarah and their parents Steve and Cindy. But I also adore the twins' Granny. She's extraordinary like the twins are. ;D
The only thing I have to "admire" is, that I think the twins are too young for their journey. They are 10 years old and I think that this isn't the right age for such a big thing which changes in their lifes. Maybe 5 or 6 years older, would be perfect. It has a sense that they in that age I know, but that's the only thing I haven't understood or what I haven't liked that much so don't hate me for that.. xD

Style of Writing:
The style of writing is easy and good to follow. The things which are talked about in the book seem to be hard or difficult to read about or to question or to answer, but with this style of writing Mr. Misosky makes it easy to understand what he wants to tell. Awesome!

Conclusion:
This book is worth a read and maybe a discussion after that. It's really awesome and I'm feeling honored that I had the chance to read it. 5 starts from me for Steven Misosky and his book Changed Forever (Even if there was the thing with the age of the twins, but that hasn't done anything bad to the story it was just my personal feeling).
