Cupcakes and Pilates with @MCDoidge #FourthWallFriday

Posted by on Jan 10, 2014 in Authors, Books, Dessert, Fourth-Wall Friday, Giveaways & Contests | 15 comments

Welcome Meghan Ciana Doidge author of many lovely stories which also include the Dowser Series. (ohh she has a post apocalyptic book too peeps!) You may remember the blast I did for #2, Trinkets, Treasures, and Other Bloody Magic for Book Nerd Tours? Well She decided to have some fun with a Fourth-Wall Friday challenge! Like many authors she needed to get her muse in the groove so she went and did some Pilates, because you know yoga, it always helps the brain flow better. Problem with excersize? It also causes you munchies a bit hungry … perhaps? Oh and if you’re an author, it drags you into your own world of make belief.. or is it? All I know is I want a dozen cupcakes now! Oh and check out the bottom I have a special giveaway for a US winner! (INT winner will be a Kindle version of it). Oh and so here are two out of three of great things… cupcakes and a giveaway.. I am not into bending and sweating. I like my Pilates with wind chimes and a yogi… and a nap afterwards… oh and a cupcake…

She was on my blog for Fourth-Wall Friday (Through the Fourth-Wall & into Underground with K. Gorman & Mieshka) and it still is one of my favorite ones. I reposted her #WeeklyShorts review for Cat and Meese (short story)

TWEET IT!! 

dIntroduce yourself to the captive audience that you now have before you. (As in tell us something NOT in your bio, give us a dirty little secret not having or having to do with your writing)

KG – I once beat a stripper in a wet T-shirt contest.

CG - Is there a genre, other than the one you currently write in, that you wish you could break into? (If you want you can – I would love it if you did – a max flash fiction of no more that 500 with the prompt of “LIGHT” since summer is almost here (Yes this could work with romance, mystery, humour, textbooks on quantum physics.. own it, title it and GO!)

KG – I wouldn’t mind breaking into New Adult or Paranormal Romance.

Light

It was a dodgy day. Relaxed, in that there were few cars crowding the streets; tense, in the knowledge that this was Monday and that, at some point or another, one had to go to work. Fog crawled up the bay, bright, brilliant, and shining. Except for the tick-tick of my bicycle as I slowed to the stop sign, it was quiet. The water was dead still. The fog muffled. No one was around.

None alive, anyway. I was right next to the cemetery. There were, technically, the remains of 20,000 in the area.

I tried not to think about it too carefully. This was a nice, bright summer day.

The fog cooled my skin.

I pushed off down the road between still salt water and tombs, not bothering to use hand signals for the ghosts. I pointed into the sun and took my time in the turn, my thighs burning a little from the hill I’d been on a minute earlier. The fog coalesced around me. Out on the water, blowing in from Trial Island, the foghorn sounded. Within the mist, it became warm, muggy, and bright.

I felt lighter.

CG - When it comes to the genre you do write in, what are a few of the books or writers that have influenced you and your own writing (yes I can actually ask a serious question?)

KG – Charles de Lint and SM Reine, first and foremost. I absolutely adore every de Lint book that I have read, and I am a great fan of Reine’s writing style. Although I haven’t read books of their’s that are quite what I write, I really enjoy the way they wrap magic and myth into the modern world.

CG - If you could cast one of your works, who would you choose to play your main characters?

She’s a dirty girl living in a fantasy world – Shannon McRoberts (interview)Verses of Athine

AmazonBarnes & NobleGoodreads

Take what you know about mythology and throw it out the window...

Do you have any idea what Zeus, Odin, Pandora's Box, Atlantis, Machu Picchu, Hera, Nike, Dragons, Vlad, Clones*, and Vampires have in common? Athine does!

The Daughter of Ares Chronicles follows Athine as she uncovers the secrets of her destiny while interacting with key figures from many mythologies. Athine is not your ordinary immortal born goddess. Learn of her mysterious origins, learn why Zeus hates her so much, find out where vampires come from, and learn what really happened to the dragons. 

Contains books 1-4 at one incredible price! This allows you to catch up on all the action in preparation for the next book Cursed Bloods (Winter 2014).

*Clones-for a full understanding of this also pick up The Secret of Genetic Corp X.

Today I welcome someone whom I have worked with before and today I am thrilled to be just another stop on her virtual book tour with Bewitching VBT. She took the bait and dove in with all ten dirty fingernails – keep reading ;) – I had a lot of fun with this one. Usually I get to play with the food, but this time I got to play with a huge casting call! For someone who claims she stinks at casting, she knows how to pick them! Thanks for being on at the Cabin today, Shannon! Maple Bacon Praline cookie? *smiling* sit a spell and enjoy a marvelous Alaskan afternoon while your fans and new readers find out even more about you!
