Happy New Year! Wishing each of you an awesome year.
, I discovered through Twitter that Eric Thomasma’s new book will be coming out soon. I do not know if any of you as my readers know about him. So, this is a excellent opportunity to get to know him.
Enjoy the interview. He makes some excellent points, and he is an excellent writer.
By the way this is a reblog from Camilla Stein’s blog.
Today on CSReview, author Eric Thomasma is sharing his love for science fiction, and being part of a wonderful world called children’s literature.
CS: Welcome to CSReview, Eric. Let’s start with something I ask every author of the genre – why do you write sci-fi?
Eric Thomasma: As a young boy I was captivated by those now iconic words, “Space, the final frontier…” I was fascinated by the concept of faster-than-light space travel and the possibilities of life on other planets and the contrast/comparison with our own societies. I remember watching the moon landings and the early development of NASA and looked forward to the days of being able to be a passenger on a flight to Alpha Centauri or other seemingly unreachable destinations. In time I came to realize that the reality of our world politics would keep us from achieving such goals within my lifetime, so…

It is the sixth day of December, and I am catching up after a month of NaNo (National Novel Writing Month) and three lovely days attending an online writers’ conference and book expo by RRBC from the first of December until the third of December. I now look forward to getting back into my routine.
Thanks to everyone who cheered me on during the month of November. I wrote 63,036 words on the third book of my series. Revision will start sometime next year.
While the United States wakes up and begin preparing to share Thanksgiving Dinner, some of us Ex-Pats all across Europe have eaten. Today is the special day set aside to give thanks to God for His goodness and His faithfulness.
Many thanks to Steve at Steve’s Bar and Grill in Hanau, Germany. He and his staff are a home away from home on this lovely Thanksgiving Day for many Americans. He is the best cook on this side of Europe.
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
Take care and be safe this weekend.
December is approaching, and with it, the release of book 2 in my Point Pleasant saga, A Cold Tomorrow. In anticipation of the December 20th release, Kensington Publishing is running a Goodreads giveaway. This is your chance to win a hard copy of the book while helping a hard-working author out in the process.
Er…that would be me, folks. 🙂
GR giveaways do wonders for getting books noticed with increased exposure, so I hope you’ll take a moment to hop over and enter. It will be a huge help to me, so please accept my gratitude in advance.
I’m currently busily working on book 3 of the series, but I have a special fondness for book 2. I’ve heard many writers find the middle book the most difficult to write.

Hello and welcome to “WHO’S ON THE SHELF?” with yours truly, Nonnie Jules! Since we are a book club, we had to offer something that included a book shelf. A lot of interviews merely cover an author’s work or an individual’s career stories. Here on this “SHELF,” we get down and dirty and ask the questions no other interviewer dare ask. We ask the questions that you want to open up a book and find the answers to on your favorite authors and fellow book club members, but no one has dared to cover them. WE get personal! Because when you sit on the RRBC “SHELF,” YOU are an open book!
Today I have with me on the “SHELF,” our Current “SPOTLIGHT”Author, A. M. MANAY!
NJ: Before we get started, how does the “shelf” feel to you? Is it comfy?
AM: So comfy. It’s the fluffiest…
