Or, seriously, what’s with the constant Cyndi Lauper posts?
Since Haunting Obsession features a thinly veiled homage to Marilyn Monroe, and is the story of someone who takes his fandom way too far, it’s easy to assume I’m an over-the-top fan of Monroe. And yes, I do fixate on many things Marilyn. But she is not the person I am most obsessed about.
I also love pop music of all eras. But I am a child of the 80s. I was in the tenth grade in 1983, a couple years after M-TV debuted, so the woman who stands above everyone else in my pop music universe is Cyndi Lauper.
I was able to do the cover reveal for one of Seventh Star Press’s latest authors, RJ SULLIVAN, whose latest novel, Haunting Obsession, is finally here! I also going to also add it here, but first here is a really cool Fourth-Wall Friday piece! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and have a great time.
I am thrilled at being loved by SEVENTH STAR PRESS enough to give you all a sneak peek and a COVER REVEAL of their latest press, Haunting Obsession by RJ SULLIVAN! Also below are some exclusive pieces of artwork by on of their talented artists. The official PRESS RELEASE, so all info o the book AND the cover reveal will be on their front page later this morning (closer to noon), so until then, this is all you get! Excited yet? I know I am SO excited about this one, I just cannot express how much! Before I had even seen the cover I was on the edge of my proverbial seat to be able to read this. It will be so much fun and now that I see the cover? This COVER LOVAH is VERY VERY HAPPY!

Attention Writers! Seventh Star Press Proudly Announces Its Next Anthology Project, Perfect Flaw: Dystopian Stories, with Editor Robin Blankenship
Seventh Star Press is proud to announce its second anthology project, Perfect Flaw: Dystopian Stories, with editor Robin Blankenship.
As with the first SSP anthology project, The End Was Not the End: Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy Tales (editor Joshua Leet) this anthology project will allow for short stories of up to 10,000 words.
Fourth-Wall Friday is a new feature where I get to feature a author I have either reviewed, will review or have yet to review or just have over for Tea and Bacon! It is an idea which stemmed from a piece that Natasha Troop did for me while I was still reading the first in her series Lakebridge Cycle (which I reviewed last Saturday). It is in a way a form of interactive inner conversation in which the author is presenting him or herself in a way that adds even more depth and enlightenment to their own author persona, their writing and the world from their tales.
Today I am honored to have a piece from you that after seeing these two at the coffee shop I quickly asked if H. David Blalock from Angelkiller fame if he would be so kind as to let us into his conversation, this is what he shared.
IN A COFFEE HOUSE
They have moved on, the survivors. After they buried their dead and said the words, they moved on to continue the Conflict elsewhere, as they have done hundreds of times before.
But before they did, they talked to me.
I think I am just another way to fight the endless Conflict, another tool in their armory, though I use words instead of bullets and novels instead of bombs. They told me they used every method possible to accomplish their goal, and I am happy… no, I am honored to be one.
