Authors Tell All- M. J. Kane

Author Pic 5.2012M.J. Kane stumbled into writing. An avid reader, this once stay-at-home mom never lost the overactive imagination of an only child. As an adult she made up stories, though never shared them, to keep herself entertained. It wasn’t until surviving a traumatic medical incident in 2006 that she found a reason to let the characters inhabiting her imagination free. Upon the suggestion of her husband, she commandeered his laptop and allowed the characters to take life. It was that, or look over her shoulder for men caring a purple strait jacket. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Tell+All+IconMy journey to becoming a published author didn’t have a typical start. I wasn’t an aspiring writer when in school. I didn’t do a great job writing journals or diaries. I hated doing research and writing term papers for school, I even hated book reports. The one thing I did do was read…a lot! As an only child, I lived inside the pages of my favorite books and going to the library was a treat. I wouldn’t walk out with just one book; I’d have a stack and read them all before the two week return date arrived. When I found a book with a story I loved, it was a mission to read each and every book written by that author. My favorite stories as a child were Alice in Wonderland, The Box Car Kids, Circle in the Sea, and Homecoming. All of them were stories about kids who either faced some life-changing hardship, or were caught up in a world of fantasy and stole my imagination.

As an adult, my reading list took a slight turn. Science Fiction and Mystery novels captured my imagination. Authors such as Michael Crichton, John Grisham and Steven King had me. And when the Lord of the Rings movies came out, I dived into the books because I just had to know what important character development point was left out of the finished novel. Did I read romance novels? Nope. I admit I fell prey to the typical ‘it’s porn!’ mindset.

Then one day at work I had nothing to read (having just finished reading Lord of the Rings: Return of the King). Not able to stand sitting in the breakroom for an hour with nothing to do, a co-worker walked me over to her desk drawer and introduced me to Nora Roberts. It was then that I realized that this whole Romance genre could be about more than just sex on paper. There were stories with characters that meant something. Needless to say, I started reading a lot of Nora.

Then one day, I was challenged to write something.

Okay, there’s a story that leads up to the challenge. As a fan of the show, LOST, I got caught up in an online challenge to write a short fan fic. It was to be posted on a forum page, and it should have only been a few paragraphs. Well, the next thing I know, I had written several pages. From there, I decided to integrate my character into the entire first season of the show. Before I knew it, I had over thirty pages! My family liked it, and so did a few online friends. But then life happened, the story got filed away, and it wasn’t until a few years later that my husband challenged me to pull it out and write some more.

I’m so glad he did, because if he didn’t, I have no idea what I’d be doing right now!

After dozens of rewrites and checking out numerous books on writing, and even taking a brief weekend class at my local collage, I discovered that the character who originally started off as someone I imagined being stranded on an island with the characters of LOST became the main character of my first published novel, A Heart Not Easily Broken. The back story I’d given her morphed and grew wings (as a caterpillar does when turning into a butterfly, thus the name of the series, The Butterfly Memoirs) and became so much more than I ever imagined. In the span of four years, I went from the reader who avoided Romance novels to an author in the genre. Instead of being your typical Romance novel, it incorporates Women’s Fiction themes and characters who are Interracial. My brand of storytelling follows the evolution of both the male and female leads. It’s heartrending, realistic, contemporary, and at times, comical doorways into the lives of people who are just trying to live their lives and find their slice of happiness. My goal in my stories is to open the eyes of readers to the lives behind closed doors of those around us, and to serve as a reminder that no matter what type of trial you are faced with in life, there is a chance to find love and happiness and to overcome the issues that threaten to tear you down if you open your mind and heart to those around you who are willing to help. The topics that have been visited in the first three novels of the series include: interracial dating, recovering from rape, friendship (A Heart Not Easily Broken); recovering from a broken heart, breaking the mold of family expectations, illness, (Jaded); single-parenting, life changing mistakes, and career advancement (Lonely Heart.)

My latest release, the fourth novel in The Butterfly Memoirs, Nobody’s Business, is a bit different from the previous three. Instead of having a female lead, this time, the story is more from the man’s point of view, with a strong female story that supports and intertwines with his. This story deals with the reality a man faces raising a son he never knew existed, while waring with his heart as to who he should be with; the mother of his son or the woman he can’t forget after a one-night stand.

To learn more about the series and the books, visit my website where you will discover more than just the first chapter samples. There are character bios, diary posts, and free short stories that continue the story after the book ends, and in the case of Nobody’s Business, there is a novella, Crossroads, which introduces Trevon and Kai and how they met before the start of Nobody’s Business.

Nobody's Business

Trevon Campbell’s world changed the moment his ex-girlfriend announced he was a father. Determined to make up for his past mistakes, he gives Trina what she wanted before their breakup, what feels like his soul, which means forgetting the woman he had a one-night stand with, the woman who stole his heart.

Kai Malone doesn’t want to play by her family’s rules. Instead of working for the family business, she became a firefighter. Being a female of multicultural descent, working in a field dominated by men, Kai focuses on her job to ignore the infidelity of her fiancé. Tired of his deceit, she gave in to a one-night stand with a complete stranger, someone she’d never have to see again…or so she thought.

When tragedy strikes, their worlds collide, leaving them no choice but to deal with each other again. It doesn’t take long for them to realize the attraction that brought them together the first time is stronger than ever, forcing Trevon to make the biggest decision of his life.

Tell+All+Icon

Thank you for inviting me to your author tell-all. Today, I’m celebrating the release of Passing His Guard, the second book in my Against the Cage series. It’s been a journey to get here and the road is far from over.

I began writing six years ago when a friend asked me to edit a book she’d been working on. I had a strong background in English and thought, why not give it a shot? But instead of editing it, I ended up rewriting it, and I learned two very important things about myself: a.) I have absolutely no editorial skill. And b.) I love to tell stories. That’s how I discovered my love for writing and it’s been a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows ever since.

The first book I wrote, Until Darkness Comes, was a paranormal romance that evolved into a 4-book series. It was published in 2012 by 5Prince Publishing.

I loved the paranormal world and begin writing another series with the hope/intention to sign with a literary agent and sell the story to a mass market publisher. Though Bonded in Exile was submitted to several agencies, the common response I received was, “Great writing and great story but paranormal isn’t selling.”

I asked the agent what was selling, and she said small-town contemporary romance. That’s when I realized it didn’t matter how good of a writer I was, or how great my story happened to be, I had to write what was selling. So I decided to jump genres and enter the contemporary world. It wasn’t easy. A + B now had to = C, and writing within the confines of realism was a new and challenging task.

Question: How would I make real life interesting enough that people would want to read it?

Answer: One injured, rancorous MMA fighter and a sexy physical therapist with a damaged past and a psychotic ex-boyfriend that may just kill them both.

I wrote Win By Submission, a steamy MMA romantic suspense, and submitted the MS to a few literary agents. A couple of weeks later, I was contacted by an agent who loved the story. I signed with Spencerhill Associates and my agent, Nalini Akolekar, then sold Win By Submission and Passing His Guard to Montlake Romance.

The third book in this series, Grappling For Position, will be out in April 2016, and I have another romantic suspense releasing next fall.

So what started out as a goodwill gesture to help out a friend has turned into a life changing event for me. It hasn’t been easy, but the road to success rarely is.

I thank you for taking the time to read my tell-all and I hope you’ll check out my newest release, Passing His Guard.

Have a wonderful day!

Like most of us, he had never given much thought to survival of souls after the death of our bodies, but the visit from the spirit of his beloved caused him to commence a thorough investigation into survival of souls and their reincarnation in the future.

In Soul Rescue, Book II of The Dacque Chronicles, Dacque is directed by his Heavenly Guides to locate the earthbound spirit of a child and assist it to finally pass over to join its awaiting family members. Dacque eventually discovers that this assignment was not just an assignment, and the earthbound spirit was a close
associate of his in a previous lifetime.

In Soul Mind, Book III of The Dacque Chronicles, Dacque is enlisted by the spirit of a recently murdered acquaintance to assist in bringing the murderer to justice. This is no simple task as the victim met his demise from a vicious blow to the back of his head and did not see his murderer. The real fun comes in trying to convince the local police to allow the spirit and soul of the murder victim to assist in their investigation of the murder.

Soul Connections, Book IV of The Dacque Chronicles, is a continuation of Book III where individuals associated with the murder victim are educated in the relationship of Karma and the reincarnation of groups of souls together in more than one lifetime. Have you ever wondered how total strangers can be thrown together and eventually become devoted friends or family members? It is all tied into Karma and the reincarnation of groups of souls together in a number of lifetimes until their Karmic connections are fulfilled. Curious? Let Dacque LaRose be your guide.

Bad Company
Scottish psychologist Doctor Kelly Ann Darrow loves her career and has never permitted her feelings to impact her professionalism, but when biker Cameron Iss arrives in her care, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the unconscious man. His tattoos and the mysterious circumstances of his arrival intrigue her to distraction.
Cameron Iss awakes in a strange country with no memory of how he got there and no knowledge of who he is. He takes out his frustrations at his amnesia on the sexy doctor enlisted with helping him unlock his mind.
A mutual chemistry forms between them, and Kelly is plagued with guilt at her unethical and inappropriate attraction to this, her most perplexing patient yet.
 As his memories begin to return and they discover more about his violent past and his connection with a motorcycle club in America, the element of danger both excites and frightens Kelly, and nothing can douse the erotic fire he has sparked inside her.
Will Kelly risk her career, her reputation, and all she is for the man who has ignited a dormant passion within her or will his returning memories steal him away for good?

Excerpt from Bad Company:
Kelly
I watched him sleeping.I’d been doing the same thing for the past week since he was brought in. And with each passing day, my oh-so-unprofessional want for him grew more familiar. His natural, musky, masculine scent infiltrated my senses and I inhaled it deeply, closing my eyes and pulling it. Memorising it. I opened my eyes and trailed my gaze over his features yet again. Such a handsome face. Dark brown, tousled hair and more than a week’s worth of beard growth. I wondered if he was usually clean shaven—although he really did suit the stubble. What would it feel like to run my tongue along his angular jaw line? Trembling, I shook my head to dislodge the erotic thought.Annie, one of his ICU nurses, had told me that he had the brightest blue eyes she’d ever seen. She only knew that from the times she’d checked his pupils.Sadly, he hadn’t opened his eyes of his own accord yet.
All I knew about him on a personal level was that his name was possibly Cameron Iss. And that was only if the note they’d found with him was actually written by him. My job—when he eventually awoke from his coma—was to find out why he’d tried to take his own life. As a woman, I ached to think of the torment he may have gone through to end up in my care. As a newly qualified psychologist, I was looking forward, in a macabre way, to getting inside his head. He would be my first suicide-attempt case. I glanced down to the panic alarm hooked onto my waistband to ensure it was still there. It was one of the things I’d been informed I should keep with me at all times for my own protection—some patients were known to get a little out of hand. Not that I needed it at that precise moment, but it was always better to be prepared.
The machines around my patient flashed and bleeped. But he lay still. After observing the scar on his forehead, I allowed my gaze to journey to where his long lashes fanned out on his pale, bruised features. Continuing to map his face, I made myself study the NG feeding tube with its medical tape holding it in place on his cheek and then settled my attention on his full mouth. He had those kissable, full lips… well, they would’ve been if they weren’t distorted by the ventilator tube hanging from them.
Good grief, I was being so unprofessional. He deserved better.But he was probably the most handsome—no… handsome just didn’t cut it—he was the most stunning, sexy, and sculpted man I could ever recall encountering in all my adult years. Fine lines caused an indentation between his strong brows, indicating to me that he was someone who frowned a lot. Perhaps he was uber serious. Stern. Harsh even. The thought excited me and sent shivers of electricity down my spine. He was dangerous, that much I could tell. The epitome of masculinity. Let’s get to the point here, he was the most gorgeous guy I’d ever laid eyes on. I chewed on my lip. As a jolt of sensation throbbed at my clit, I inhaled sharply. Just thinking about what he might be like had me pulsating and needy. But it was
wrong and I knew it. Bloody typical—he was in a coma and unattainable thanks to my professional code of ethics.
I sat there a little longer, tablet in hand. I hadn’t really focused on the patient record on the screen, and the tablet had gone into sleep mode—just like Cameron. Despite my state of heightened sexual awareness, exhaustion—both mental and physical—was taking its toll on me too. I could’ve just sat in my office, but the view wasn’t quite as good in there. Don’t get me wrong, the view from my office in the North Kessock hospital window overlooked the beautiful Kessock Bridge with Inverness in the distance. And although I couldn’t see it from my south-facing view, I knew the Black Isle unfolded behind me, and I loved that place. From my office window I could see the sun glinting on the Beauly Firth and watch the boats as they tootled by on the calm estuary waters heading out to sea. But… well, Mr Iss was heart meltingly gorgeous and was rapidly becoming my favourite thing to look at.
The many tattoos covering his arms offered enigmatic clues into his life—possibly. I’d examined them for hours, wondering what they all meant, if anything. Maybe he was just one of those guys who liked ink. But maybe there was some deeper meaning to the numbers, words, and pictures beautifully marking the man’s otherwise perfect
olive skin. One in particular grabbed my attention. It was the word Cosmic in ornate script on his forearm. Strange choice. The word was surrounded by stars, and a sultry woman with green eyes and long auburn hair, not unlike my own, was draped across it as if it were a bed. Some tattoos I’d seen before depicted women as slutty, half naked and big breasted, mere objects to be ogled, but this one was very tasteful. Yet it was out of character with the dark, foreboding images that covered his arms. There were some intricate tribal tattoos too that were really quite beautiful if you liked that kind of thing—which I never had… until I started imagining the bold ripple of ink over his muscles as he pushed himself into my flesh.
Judging by the numerous markings he carried on these relatively small areas of visible skin, I was pretty sure he had more ink on the rest of his body. Annie—lucky thing—had the job of bathing him, but it would be completely unprofessional of me to ask such questions about a patient, and so I continued to use my vivid imagination.
It’s a good thing that my superiors were only psychiatrists and not mind readers, or I’d be fired on the spot.
I was clearly sex starved.

Permanent Spring Showers
Professor Rebecca  Stanley-Wilson is having a very bad season. Her husband has just admitted to  having an affair. And it was with one of her students. Blame it on a desire for  revenge (or way too much alcohol), she then has had one of her own. Unfortunately  for her, her affair was with one of the great upcoming painters of his  generation. The ramifications of that one torrid evening will not only be felt across her life but over the entire art world. 
 Sexy, funny, and very  surprising, Permanent Spring Showers is the tale of one very  memorable springtime  and how it impacts a group of unique artists and dreamers. From the writer who  is creating a new literary movement (through outright manipulation), to the hopeful  Olympian with the failing marriage, to the romantic wondering what he did wrong  to drive his love from him, each tale walks the line between reality and  fantasy. And waiting at the end of the line is a very important painting… and  possibly the revolver used in the Lincoln Assassination.

About Bernadette  Marie
Bernadette Marie has been an avid writer since the early age of 13, when she’d fill notebook after notebook with stories that she’d share with her friends. Her journey into novel writing started the summer before eighth grade when her father gave her an old
typewriter. At all times of the day and night you would find her on the back porch penning her first work, which she would continue to write for the next 22 years.
In 2007—after marriage, filling her chronic entrepreneurial needs, and having five children—Bernadette began to write seriously with the goal of being published. That year she wrote 12 books. In 2009 she was contracted for her first trilogy and the published author was born. In 2011 she (being the entrepreneur that she is) opened her own
publishing house, 5 Prince Publishing, and has released her own contemporary titles. She also quickly began the process of taking on other authors in other genres.
In 2012 Bernadette Marie began to find herself on the bestsellers lists of iTunes, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble to name a few. Her office wall is lined with colorful PostIt notes with the titles of books she will be releasing in the very near future, with hope
that they too will grace the bestsellers lists. Bernadette spends most of her free time driving her kids to their many events—usually hockey. She is also an accomplished martial artist with a second degree black belt in Tang Soo Do. An avid reader, she enjoys contemporary romances with humor and happily ever afters.

Unrequited love is the biggest heartache…

Lily and Adam have been best friends since the dawn of time. Well, the dawn of their time.  Okay…since primary school actually.  Everyone accepted them as best friends.  Until one day, aged 18, Lily made a fateful discovery.  She was head over heels in love. With Adam. 

Her unrequited feelings are hard to deal with initially but become even harder when Lily inadvertently introduces him to the love of his life.  It all started as a bit of a joke thanks to the other woman’s name. Eve.  Many years later and Adam is once again single and heartbroken and Lily is there to help him pick up the pieces.  Her methods are sometimes a little unorthodox and lead to ridiculous consequences.  Can Lily help Adam move on and find happiness again?  And can either of the friends recover from losing the love of their lives? Sometimes the one thing you want is way out of reach.

 A single day shattered her life and  set in motion, events that would change the Sullivan family for generations.
 Marnie Joe Sullivan had the perfect life as the daughter of a  wealthy Virginia businessman, but perfection wouldn’t last. As the War Between  the States ends, she is struggling to keep her family together. After a botched  robbery, fleeing rebels leave her mother dead and Marnie at the mercy of a  killer. The year is 1867 and Virginia is still home to Confederate conspirators  and a killer that must be stopped. Loyalty and love run deep in the Sullivan  family and Marnie is no exception. As the eldest Sullivan, she feels obligated  to rescue her father from the hangman’s noose. But a jailbreak at midnight
lands her in the arms of Marshal Mason Kane.
Death is never fair. Mason Kane is proof of that. The horror  of war and the death of his brother made him a drunk. Consumed by guilt and  grief, he finds himself occupying Richmond saloons and starting fights. But a  forgotten promise to his brother forces him to put down the bottle and accept a  friend’s plea for help. Mason has no idea that the scrawny, mud covered boy he  just hit is Sullivan’s daughter and he has no idea just how tempting she is  until he tries to mend her wounds. Bound by honor and promise, Mason sets out  to find a killer. What he finds is the outlaw Marnie Sullivan. A woman he can’t  live without and secrets that lie in the way.
