Madeline Dyer Swims with the Mermaids!

Hi Madeline! Welcome to the Waterworld mermaids! I’ve read your first book, Untamed, and absolutelyfragmented1400 loved it. I am soooo looking forward to reading Fragmented, which releases in a few short days on September 7!

We’re absolutely thrilled to have you here, and we hope you enjoy splashing in our lagoon!

Thanks so much for having me!

1. Can you tell us a little bit about Untamed and Fragmented?

Sure! Untamed and Fragmented are books one and two in my dystopian fantasy series (the Untamed Series), about addiction, betrayal, and loyalty.

Untamed begins in a world where an estimated 95% of the population are addicted to chemical augmenters that only allow them to feel positive emotions. These ‘Enhanced Ones’ believe it is their duty to ‘save’ the remaining people—the Untamed—from the fear and anger that is within them, and thus make society a safer place. And the Enhanced Ones will stop at nothing in their quest to convert…

But ten years ago, the scientists kidnapped and experimented on her, leading to severe ramifications for her sister, Callie. She’d much rather break into their labs and sabotage their research—starting with Tanner Callahan, budding scientist and the boy she loathes most at school.

WHY thank you, Mary Buckham ;-)

CarleneLoveHello fishy friends,

Welcome to today! Let me get straight to business, as a good student of Mary Buckham would do. Last month, my local writing chapter, Romance Writers of America-San Diego, hosted Mary as our guest speaker and her craft and branding workshop was outstanding. I highly recommend you check them out. I’m not one to take pages and pages of notes because I like to listen to all those little one-liners and short stories the speaker usually throws in between the meat of the presentation. Well, I ended up with a couple pages of “Mary-isms”. I loved them! She’s great. My favorite, however, was this:

It’s not about what you do, it’s about why you do what you do. That’s what the readers are connecting with.

She then challenged us to figure out for ourselves why we have to write and proceeded to briefly mention Sherrilyn Kenyon. My heart instantly warmed. Mary asked the…

I Got a $5 Coupon for Valentine’s Day

“You know we’re not doing anything for Valentine’s Day,” I say in a sweetly menacing voice as my husband and I pass each other in the hall. He rolls his eyes. “Yes, I know. Not my first day on the job.”

It’s not by accident I make sure we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. Early in our relationship, when we were still figuring things out, I said the same thing. But then came Valentine’s morning and there they were on the table: roses, chocolates and a trinket. “You didn’t get me anything? Not even a card?” he asked with a look of bewildered incredulity. “But we said nothing,” I mewled. “I thought you meant nothing big,” he replied A quick trip to the store and I spent a load of money to wipe the stench of disappointment I had smeared all over him with my lack of sentimentality. But that was in the early throws of dating.

It’s not that I hate Valentine’s Day, I hate what it represents….
