Listen in! Tonight we have a brilliant new author with a talent for telling stories that both terrify and inspire. Tune in to meet R.A. Giggie as she tells of the divine inspirations and asperations she has from and for her debut novel, Stella’s Plea.
From Amazon: R.A. Giggie was born in a small community in Quebec. She later moved to New Brunswick and has since made it her home. She’s a wife, mother, and grandmother. While her husband is an avid outdoors-man, she’s more a “homebody” and prefers to write stories.
She’s the author of Stella’s Plea (Nov 2012), a Christian suspense about the abduction of a deaf little girl and her mother’s struggle to find her. She’s currently working on a court drama.
Writing is her passion though she works full-time outside the home, but looks forward to the day when she can make a living out of writing. Her favourite genres are Christian suspense, historical and Amish. However she’s always opened to new authors.
It’s time for another ménage à trois of literary love and these authors are paying back with free books! Join me in toasting the people who put themselves out there, exposing it all on the page, for your enjoyment. Please visit them, grab their books for free, and leave them a like. Tonight’s Threesome are…
From Amazon: I am the author of three books thus far and have challenged myself to get one out for reach age group, children, young adult and adult.
My newest work is an adult novel by the name of Arm Farm although my most recently released work is a poetry collection titled Through the Eyes of a Teenager.
Currently residing in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada with my husband, son, dog named Corona and cat named Russ I work full time as a writer but with full time pay.
On any given day you can catch me reading books by Erica Spindler, Kelly Moran, Luanne Rice, Lesley Choyce, Stephen King and Dan Brown. I’m also open to reading new authors and have fallen in love with quite a few lately.
I’m part of a Monday night writing group with marvelous people who are putting forth lots of brilliant pieces in order to be discovered. They are inspiring me to continue entering contests and have done so more frequently these past few months than I have in years.
I enjoy reading first drafts of people’s work and love that people are reading my books.
From Amazon: “Trust me,” she heard a voice say to her. When her deaf daughter, 3-year-old Alexis, goes missing, Stella Brigg faces an incredible struggle. Alone, while her husband serves in the armed forces overseas, Stella must depend on Someone greater than anyone she’s ever known. Someone who loves her even more than Don ever did. Only that kind of love can carry her through in her search for Alexis.
From Amazon: I’m an international bestselling Canadian author who loves to say, “I kill people off for a living!” You can imagine the looks I get from people. Sometimes I’ll tell them, “Fictitiously, of course. I’m an author.” Sometimes I won’t say anything; I’ll let them wonder…
Submerged, my latest novel, is a psychological suspense thriller with a hint of supernatural, and it promises to leave you breathless. But I am probably best known for Children of the Fog, a supernatural suspense thriller that has sold over 60,000 copies and made Amazon’s Top 100 bestsellers list (#4 in overall list) multiple times out of nearly 2 million ebooks; and Whale Song, a much-loved, inspiring family tale with a hint of mystery, which is now available in its third edition–plus a school edition with a discussion guide.
Whale Song, an emotional mystery that explores controversial issues like assisted suicide, school bullies and racism, has captured the attention of numerous film companies. A screenplay, which I wrote with co-writer Alison Neuman, was completed in 2006, along with a movie treatment. I’m pursuing possible film deals for many of my books. And sometimes when I think of a movie deal, I smell buttered popcorn.
Booklist calls me “a big hit in Canada…a name to reckon with south of the border.”
In September 2005, my gripping action-packed techno-thriller The River was released. This well-researched novel explores the mysterious Nahanni River area, nanotechnology and man’s obsession with longevity. The River has been compared to works by Michael Crichton, James Patterson, Dean Koontz and Dan Brown.
I’m also the author of the 2004 “sizzling psychic suspense” Divine Intervention, a ‘psi-fi’ suspense thriller (or paranormal romance) that has been compared to works by authors such as Iris Johansen, Kay Hooper and Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb’s ‘In Death’ series. Divine Justice, the second in the Divine mystery series, was also released in 2011.
In 2009, I branched off into romance with my debut romantic suspense Lancelot’s Lady. Since romance is a different genre from my usual suspense/thrillers and YA, I wrote Lancelot’s Lady under the pen name of Cherish D’Angelo. Lancelot’s Lady was a semi-finalist in the Dorchester Publishing Next Best Celler contest hosted by Textnovel. It also won an Editor’s Choice award from Textnovel in 2010.
A novelette of suspense titled Remote Control was released in ebook edition in July 2010; and a collection of stories titled Skeletons in the Closet & Other Creepy Stories in August 2010.
In 2006, I participated in a hilarious new TV series ‘A Total Write-Off’, hosted by comedian Barbara North. In 2004, I was nominated for the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Award. In 2003, I wrote a public service announcement for a racial harmony campaign. My PSA script, One Voice ~ One World, placed third and was produced and aired on cable channels in Alberta.
I have not only held hundreds of book signings, I have also organized multi-author signings, held virtual book tours and other online events, and I’ve taught others how to promote their books. My book How I Made Over $42,000 in 1 Month Selling My Kindle eBooks is the #1 Marketing book specifically designed for Amazon’s KDP Select program.
I’ve been interviewed by numerous TV and radio stations in Canada and the US, and I’ve been featured in a variety of newspapers and magazines in both countries.
I’m also the publisher at Imajin Books, a venture that is dear to my heart. Imajin Books publishes quality international fiction at affordable prices, with a focus on ebooks.
Born in Vancouver, BC, I was a “military brat” and a “military wife” who has lived all across Canada and in Bermuda. I now reside in Edmonton, AB, with my husband Marc and our Pomeranian Princess, Chai.
