My ‘Meet The Author’ feature

I’ve been interviewed for other things and I’ve had to do interviews myself but it’s always loads of fun to do author interviews. You get these questions that seem simple on first read and then you have to think deeply to answer them adequately.

You also end up leaving some truths about yourself in the open.

That’s the scary part as I would much rather be an anonymous hermit cranking out books than someone you know. I’m learning I will have to change on that point–way of the times and whatnot, but don’t let me get off track.

Go read the interview little old me did at https://jackydahlhaus.com/blogging/meet-the-author-f-f-john/.

Let me know what you think.

FFJ’s Freebies! April 24, 2018

This week’s freebies are brought to you by May Freighter and her book, Demon Gate.51uqlpdmhbl

It is the second book in the Helena Hawthorn urban fantasy series. If you receive my newsletters, then you heard all about book 1 — Russian Roulette — earlier today. Here’s what it’s about …

Uncertain whether she is human or not, Helena is forced to undergo new nightmares while her mental battle continues with a demon called ‘Lazarus’. Without her guardian angel to protect her, she is left to rely on vampires who have their own reasons for everything.

The attraction between her and Lucious grows, whether it is a side effect of the soul-bond they share or of their own volition. Yet, how can they be certain? 

With the help of her new friends, they must seek out a Demon Gate and enter the Demon Realm to stop Lazarus from claiming her and Lucious’ souls. But, will they succeed or perish as the only weapon that can kill a demon has been lost centuries ago.

For readers who enjoyed The Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith, Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer, or A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest.

Get Demon Gate for FREE at Amazon today!

Get Russian Roulette, also FREE at Amazon today and read Books 1 and 2 in the series!

LegionBorn & LegionMarked: A word cloud

I’m working furiously on LegionMarked, having scrapped it 4 previous times. By ‘scrapped it’, I mean, I started writing the book, got anywhere between 10,000 and 20,000 words and said to myself, “Meh, this won’t work.”

I’m finally at a place where I like where the story is going and I’m hoping readers of LegionBorn will enjoy what I’ve created.

writinglessons: The Good Fight

I spent a few days watching episodes of The Good Fight with my cousin recently. She’s pregnant and the baby had her sleep cycle on ridiculous, so scripted tv programs were a perfect way to bide the time.

She (my cousin) informed me that The Good Fight (TGF) was a spinoff of The Good Wife. Neither shows had ever been of interest to me and with an already stacked to-watch-list, I didn’t think I should add TGF to my schedule. Boy, am I happy I did.

The show is set in the city of Chicago and specifically in the offices of the city’s most prestigious all-Black law firm. You’d think it would be a show about black people and the crucial or tangential issues involving them.

Instead, and quite cleverly, the story is really about three female attorneys trying to find their way at the firm. Two of those attorneys are white (yes, I know it’d obvious from the poster above).

Their race, while sometimes important, is far from crucial to what makes the show so incredible. Its the complicated relationships between themselves and the characters they encounter that produces the tension, conflict and pleasure of this program.

Take Ygritte Maia (lady number 3 in the poster). The complexity for her lies in her relationship with her parents and particularly her father.
