Author Lisa Logan

For the last few days I have had the greatest pleasure of conversing with an author by the name of Lisa Logan. She is a very kind person. She has taken the time to talk about her writings and a little about herself. To talk with a published author has always been one of my goals.
Lisa Logan's Current book list of finished works:

  • Visions (Paranormal Romance/Mystery)
  • Twist of Fate (Anthology)
  • Twisted Fairy Tales (Anthology)
  • Paranormal Bedtime Stories (Anthology)
  • Misadventures of Moms (Anthology)
  • Chicken Soup for the Recovering Soul: Daily Inspirations (Daily Journal)
Next Book, Coming April 2008:
  • A Grand Seduction (Contemporary Women's Fiction)
Finished works under consideration by publishers:
  • Twelve Steps to Murder (Murder Mystery)
  • Suite Seduction (Novella)
In Progress Works:
  • Immoral Magic (Paranormal/Romance; Book 1 of a Trilogy)
  • The Wiccaning (Paranormal/Romance)
Lisa took a few minuets to answer one of my questions for her.

Q: What is it like when you finally finish a book?

A: To answer your question, finishing a book is an amazing sense of accomplishment, though I find an even bigger thrill comes during those times that the writing is flowing and going well, or when my characters do something shocking (and better than what I had planned). With that comes a true writer's high--that and acceptance letters from publishers, of course! Admittedly, when I finish a book there is a bit of reluctance to leave characters and settings that I've gotten to know during the course of writing--they become like comfortable friends. Of course, then there is the revision (and re-revision) process, so I do get to visit with these "friends" again.

Q: What Current books are you working on?

A: Current books I'm working on:
I recently completed IMMORAL MAGIC, a paranormal romance that is part 1 of a witch/vampire trilogy. Dream is a lonely young witch who decides to cast a love spell. Grant is the new hunk in town, a farmer with big dreams and simple beliefs. When he falls victim to magical seduction, he does his best to cast aside feelings he attributes to nothing more than her deceitful conjure. When darkness in the form of a virile, scheming vampire comes to claim the witch as his own, Grant has to decide once and for all whether he can turn his back on the greatest magic on

I'm currently writing THE WICCANING, a romance I'm very excited about। Justine, a "good' Christian girl, falls into sin with an intriguingly sensual man during a moment of lonely weakness. To her shock she discovers Rion is a witch; worse, not long after she sends him packing she learns that she is pregnant--against doctor's advice. Fearing the punishment for her sin will be yet another in a string of miscarriages that ended her marriage, Justine discovers a curse may be responsible. When her own flagging, yet firmly entrenched beliefs fail to offer a way out, she decides that the only way to fight fire with fire is to become the last thing a "good" Christian girl ever dared imagine.

Q: What advice do you have for young writers out there (or young at heart)?

A: There's a common adage that says, "Write what you know." I disagree. I say, "Write what you love" or "Write what inspires." Do take time to learn the craft if you're planning to get published, but don't be afraid to take chances on something unconventional if you're truly passionate about it. For in my definition, a successful writer is not necessarily someone who makes the bestseller list, but rather someone who enjoys the thrill of each journey they take through their stories--whether they get published or not.

Lisa is also the editor of Minute Mystery, a free quarterly flash fiction ezine , and is the founder of The Green Writing Challenge, I signed up have you?
You can find Interviews about her at the fallowing sites and Mouth Full of Bullets. You can also stop by her website for more updated information, to shop at her gift shop and to cheek out where her next book signing will be at.

The Biker

I saw you, hug your purse closer to you in the grocery

store line. But, you didn't see me, put an extra $10.00 in the

collection plate last Sunday. I saw you, pull your child closer

when we passed each other on the sidewalk. But, you didn't see me,

playing Santa at the local mall. I saw you, change your mind

about going into the restaurant. But, you didn't see me, attending

a meeting to raise more money for the hurricane relief. I saw

you, roll up your window and shake your head when I rode by. But,

you didn't see me, riding behind you when you flicked your

cigarette butt out the car window. I saw you, frown at me when I

smiled at your children. But, you didn't see me, when I took time

off from work to run toys to the homeless. I saw you, stare at my

long hair. But, you didn't see me, and my friends cut ten inches

off for Locks of Love. I saw you, roll your eyes at our leather

jackets and gloves. But, you didn't see me, and my brothers donate

our old ones to those that had none. I saw you, look in fright at

my tattoos. But, you didn't see me, cry as my children were born

and have their name written over and in my heart. I saw you,

change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere. But, you didn't

see me, going home to be with my family. I saw you, complain

about how loud and noisy our bikes can be. But, you didn't see me,

when you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane. I saw

you, yelling at your kids in the car. But, you didn't see me, pat

my child's hands, knowing he was safe behind me. I saw you,

reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road. But, you

didn't see me, squeeze my wife's leg when she told me to take the

next turn. I saw you, race down the road in the rain. But, you

didn't see me, get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car

to go on his date. I saw you, run the yellow light just to save a

few minutes of time. But, you didn't see me, trying to turn

right. I saw you, cut me off because you needed to be in the lane

I was in. But, you didn't see me, leave the road. I saw you,

waiting impatiently for my friends to pass. But, you didn't see

me. I wasn't there. I saw you, go home to your family. But, you

didn't see me. Because, I died that day you cut me off. I was

just a biker. A person with friends and a family. But, you didn't

see me. Re-post this around in hopes that people will understand

the biker community. If you don't re-post this, It sucks to be

you. I hope you never loose someone that rides. EVEN IF YOU



. . . . RIDE TO LIVE

Hope you like this little story! Remember to watch out for those motorcycle riders

Social Networks

For todays online world we use the social networking sites. They are wonderful places to meet people, hold discussions and design a profile page. These places allow people to connect with each other from the ease of our homes. These places allow us to keep blogs, send heartful messages to others. Some Social Networks Pay people to use their sites. One such place is Rotatrix Friends Network or as the users call it RFN. You meet other people trying to make some extra money from home. They talk about what programs are good to be in. You make friends, and do the same things you can at MySpace. The difference is RFN pays you to use their sight.
Other wonderful Places to use are Pagan Space and TheCUPWA. These networks are set up for the occult and metaphysical world. Those who believe in other spirituality paths. Their are wonderful people at all these places and great opportunity to get your self heard. If you haven't started to use these places to help your business or personal growth you should try it. A good trial time is about a month or two. If you haven't seen any success or haven't meet any intreasting people then its your choice to leave.

Dad's Are Crafty Too!

Dad's can be very crafty people as well. My hubby is quite the crafter as well as some of the other dad's. Crafting doesn't have to be frilly or pretty (we do a lot of dark goth crafts here ) but it should be fun. A bonding experience with the kids what ever their ages are. Here is a website that helps dads get crafty with their kids. A wide range of mediums to use. The website Dad Can Do is broken down in easy to use categories. And for those who love Harry Potter to Doctor Who their is a wide range of ideas. This is a great start to do something fun with the kids (I even do these crafts!)
