Join Fey's Sparklers! / Monthly Mishmash






Radio Interview:

I did my first radio interview on Off The Chain, hosted by author Yvonne Mason. We discuss my pen name, how I started writing, the Disaster Crimes Series, and I share fiery details about Book 4. 


Recorded Interview:

I did this recorded interview back in June. It was posted earlier this month. Check it out and witness how terrified I am. LOL!



I'm starting a street team! :D

Fey's Sparklers

WHY SPARKLERS? Because they are cool. lol And because a spark can ignite a blaze, and that is what a street team does. They ignite blazes for authors and books.

SPARKLER GOALS: The members of Fey's Sparklers will have missions. Maybe two a month, to start. If you complete a mission, you will get a prize. Or if the mission is a big one, the person who completes the mission with the highest score (details later) will get the grand prize.

The prizes could be...ANYTHING!

I'll also offer advanced reader copies (ARCs) to Fey's Sparklers and do fun contests. For example, you could help me name characters and get credit for it.

WHERE: Fey's Sparklers will have a private Facebook Group for all of this to take place, so I'll need to be able to add you there. All members will get one of my ebooks (of their choosing) as a gift when they join.

If you're interested in being a Sparkler, please fill out THIS FORM. Or use the one below.

NOTE: If you don't know your FB URL, make sure we are friends so I can find you. Here is my personal FB.






GOODREADS GIVEAWAY:  I'm doing my first Goodreads giveaway for a print copy of Seismic Crimes. The giveaway will end on September 11th, so enter now! 

QUESTION: Will you sign up?

  1. You seemed far less nervous as the interview went on. Didn't seem nervous at all on the one last week. The more you do, the easier it becomes looks like.

    1. By the end, I was like "Why did I think that'd be so awful?"

  6. You didn't seem that nervous to me, at least not once the interview really got going. Most people tend to start with a bit of stage fright if they're not used to public speaking or having an audience.

  7. You look great and you sound great too! At first, everyone can be nervous but the interviewer knows this and seemed to help you. Once you started talking and getting into it, you relaxed and everything flowed. When you do more, it will become second nature. Good for you for starting the sparklers!

  8. Wow, Chrys. I haven't been by in a while, but I'm glad I stopped by today. Your interview was great, no matter how nervous you look. And who could resist buying the book after listening to this interview? No hurricanes here, I live in blizzard country, but I'm anxious to read about your stormy crimes. :-)

  11. It's been suggested I start a street team, but I've been hesitant to ask my readers to do more than they already do. Please let me know how it works for you--I'm curious.

  16. Congrats on the interviews! I wouldn't have the courage to be interviewed on video so I'm very impressed with your courage. I've seen some of your videos before and you have a lovely presence, so I'm sure you came across well in this one as well even if you were a bit nervous.
