Leeds Author Event 2016

Have you ever been told about a party in an off-hand way? Such as “hey this should be fun”. And you think that does sound like fun. And then you think – it’s too bad you can’t go. That’s the way I felt when I first heard about the Leeds’ Author Event. It sounded like it would be fun – so many authors all in one place and then a masquerade ball. All for a good benefit too. But, come on! I live in America and Leeds is across the pond. There’s no way I can go. So I wrote it off.

Then I heard a few more things and saw the list of authors. Some of whom I am friends with on Facebook. And again I thought – wow that would be fun for sure. But again – I live in America! There is no way I could actually go. Then one cold Saturday morning in January I got a little curious and started checking things out. An hour later I had a plan in place to get there. And then it wasn’t a question anymore about going to Leeds. It was now a fact.

I worked all day on Thursday March 3rd, jumped on a plane and the following morning touched down in Manchester – during a snow storm. About two hours later I arrived in Leeds and after checking in went to visit to the Royal Armory. Since I was leaving early on Sunday morning I decided to arrange for my taxi back to the airport.

My first realization that I was in for a special weekend was when I saw two young ladies approach me smiling. The dark haired girl said “are you David E. Gordon? The American author?” and smiling I nodded as a glimmer of recognition edged it’s way into my mind. Without warning the blonde girl jumped at me and wrapped me in a big hug and said “It’s me Georgiana!” Well – I don’t know a Georgiana, so I just smiled. Realization set in and I was hugging Francesca Marlow. Of course, it took about 20 minutes before I realized – with a little help – that the other woman was Victoria L. James.

We made our way into the hotel bar and met several more attendees – authors, bloggers, and writers. But, I nervously awaited the arrival of someone I thought I would never actually meet. Claire Allmendinger is my editor and without her I likely would not be a published author. I had an idea of when they were supposed to arrive so I headed out to the lobby on a whim. I looked through the crowd of people checking in and there she was – Claire. We hugged for a long moment – neither of us believing this would ever happen.

I spent the rest of the night meeting more authors and friends from Facebook like Lisa Fulham, Eleanor Lloyd-Jones, Cameron Lincoln, and so many more. We had a great time as we talked, laughed, drank, and even found a way to have dinner. Even if the first two places didn’t work out – at least I got to see Leeds from the ground up. Whether we drank the wine or splashed it on Lisa we still had a lot of fun and went to bed way too late.

Saturday was really cool for me as I had never been to an author signing. Especially one with about 30 or 40 authors. It was so cool to see the effort these people went to for the signing. With banners and swag all over it was hard to imagine all of their hard work. I have written two books of my own and taken part in two compilations. I carried both compilations with me so that I could get as many signatures as possible on my copies. I was also quite pleased to sign copies for my fellow authors who had their copies.

If the day was special, the evening was even more special with a masquerade ball to benefit the Mind charity. The hostesses Jo and Rachel from Hourglass Events did an amazing job with the event. The music was fun and it didn’t stop until very late in the night. It took awhile for me to get on the floor also, but once I saw “the worm” in person I just had to dance. There were give-aways, good food, and quite a few drinks consumed. When I finally went to bed that night I slept well and dreamt of what an amazing trip this had been.

There are a lot of lessons I could take away from this trip. About an author signing event, about how a well planned event is run, and about the hard work that an author always has to go through. The job doesn’t end when you type “the end” in fact some would say that is when the job actually starts.

But, what I will always take away from this trip is the adventure. The next time there is an opportunity to go somewhere or do something I haven’t done, my response won’t be “no I can’t”. Instead, I will start by saying I can – and then find out if I can’t. Too often in life we spend more time saying “I can’t” and not enough time saying “why not”. And if you have the passion to do something, to experience something then do it and experience it.IMG_3639

Excerpt:
The Mayor was seated at one of the couches and stood as Robert approached. The admin offered a drink, which Robert declined. The men shook hands and Robert noticed that the aid left the office with the admin. There were several folders spread across the table in front of them, along with a tall glass of orange juice. He had heard that the Mayor was cutting back on his caffeine.

“Robert… may I call you Robert?”

“Yes sir, Robert is just fine. How can I help you today?”

“First, I wanted to thank you for stopping by on such short notice. I heard you were in the building and I had a meeting cancel on me. So this seemed like an opportunity I couldn’t pass up on. I understand that your soccer tournament was incredibly successful. My nephew was on one of the teams and his family came for dinner on Sunday. I hope we will see many more of these types of tournaments, they are vital to the kids in our communities and highlight so well the good things being done.”

“Thank you, Sir. That is very kind of you, and I am glad to hear your nephew enjoyed it. My son had a wonderful time as well. But, I don’t think that was why you really called me in here?”

“Very perceptive as always, Robert. No, it’s not. There is a couple of things that I wanted to discuss. The first is that the city will be awarding you with a Man of the City award. This usually goes through a media person, but I wanted to tell you myself. This is not a politically motivated award at all. Please believe that. What you did for that neighborhood, the park, and the kids all over the city is nothing short of amazing. I am personally proud to know you. Thank you.”

As the Mayor continued to speak he reached over and shook hands with him again. “My media group will be reaching out to your folks. I will defer to you as to how we do this, but I was hoping you would accept it at a fundraiser I am having in a couple of months. The fundraiser is actually for the Policeman’s Widows and Orphan’s Fund. Given your history I thought that would be appropriate.”

“Thank you, Mr. Mayor. That is incredibly kind of you to say. I will do my best to be available. Have your team call my office and I will make sure that Jennifer knows to make me available.”

Before The Mayor spoke he handed Robert a file. “This is for your eyes only Robert. There is an opportunity for an investment that I think you might enjoy. Because of the investment itself the city has to be involved. While not owners, partners, or investors, the city has a vested interest so we sit on the board. As I said, this is highly confidential and has not been publicized by anyone. Those involved are doing their best to keep it as quiet as possible. As you will see when you take a look, as soon as the process is officially started it becomes public knowledge.

I will warn you of one thing should you decide to move forward. Because of the investment it requires intense scrutiny by several very public organizations, including the federal government. I am only telling you this because of what Moffit is up to. Between me and you, he is on a witch hunt for no apparent reason except that I know he is up for reelection next year, and he may have a serious competitor.”

“Thank you, Mr. Mayor for this opportunity. I will take a look at it carefully. I hope you did not put yourself into any unfavorable positions by giving me this. You have been an asset to this city.”

The Mayor chuckled at this. “Thanks, Robert, I don’t usually get business approving of my politics. And no, as an interested ‘silent’ partner the city is permitted to recommend people for the investment.”

Both men stood and shook hands briefly. “Robert, I will keep an eye on the DA but I can’t do anything more than that. Unless of course he steps out of line.”

“Thank you, Mr. Mayor. I look forward to hearing from your media team and it will be an honor to accept the award from you.”

Another Cutter Excerpt

This is an excerpt from Another Cutter being released on Wednesday May 20th. I hope you enjoy. 

Max was standing a couple of feet away from Robert, on his left side, and the driver was a couple of feet away, on the right side. The game was well underway and Sam’s team was winning when he saw Joseph approaching. Suddenly Robert tensed, as he saw Max straighten up, his whole body and mind seemed to be on high alert. With a quick motion of his hand the driver closed in beside Robert and just behind him. The man’s hand reaching for Robert’s arm as he said, “With me, sir,” and guided him towards the SUV.  

One moment the parents were cheering on their sons’ and daughters’ soccer teams, and the next there was chaos everywhere. Joseph had broken into a full speed run cutting across the soccer field towards Sam, dodging several of the small children as he raced forward. The driver protecting Robert stopped and knocked him to the ground, as Max went into a crouch, his gun in his hand and sweeping across the field. As Robert landed hard on his left shoulder he saw that Joseph also had his gun out.
The first shot rang out and Robert saw the cop standing beside his car go down, as he was just starting to free his gun from its holster. The bullet tore through the cop’s left leg and buried itself in the door behind him. With the driver covering him, all Robert could do was watch, in what seemed like incredibly slow motion, as another shot rang out. Robert saw a shooter go down on the far side of the field, the rifle falling to the ground from his lifeless hands. More shots could be heard as the children scattered from the field, parents and children, trying to find each other.
Robert watched as Joseph reached Sam and in one fluid motion pulled him under his arm and took off for the SUV. The driver, kneeling in front of Robert, was firing behind Joseph and Robert saw another man go down. There were four more men charging the field with guns firing at the driver and Max. Robert had not even noticed that Max had moved onto the field and was running an intercept with Joseph, firing as he ran. Another man went down, and then Robert felt the driver topple over. 
The man’s gun lay on the ground beside him. Robert saw him clutching his shoulder with blood pouring from the wound. Robert grabbed the gun and, despite yells from Joseph, he stood up and ran towards them. Robert remembered what Joseph had taught him about handling the gun and held it, pointing down. The gun tight in both hands as he ran on. Max had passed Joseph and Sam, stopped and dropped to one knee. He was firing at the three men still advancing on them, and Robert saw in horror, that Max’s left arm was hanging to his side useless.
Robert couldn’t tell where the other shots were coming from – he guessed from one of Max’s team that was hiding some place. Whoever it was, he was an amazing shot. He fired one at a time, and each time found his mark. Robert passed Joseph carrying Sam, and Joseph shot him a look. He knelt and fired at the approaching men, leading him as Joseph had taught him. He saw the shooter he aimed at slow down as he grabbed his side and then topple as another bullet hit him. The third man was taken off his feet and toppled backward as Max hit him with several shots to the chest. The last man continued to run towards Robert and Max firing as he ran, trying to avoid the bullets flying at him. Just as it seemed like he was going to finally find one of them, the shooter’s arms flung wide. He staggered forward for several more steps, his eyes already lifeless as he fell forward into the grass.
Max turned to Robert, as shouts of “clear” could be heard. Robert leaped up to his feet, desperately needing to check on Sam. As his eyes ran over the scene before him, he noticed the driver was sitting up with another gun in his good hand. He also saw two men jogging towards them and he stiffened before realizing they were part of Max’s team. Robert turned looking around wildly searching and then saw Sam sitting on the ground crying. Beside him lay Joseph and he didn’t appear to be moving. Robert looked at Max and the two took off running.

Author Interview with Joseph Lewis

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Joseph Lewis, the author of Taking Lives currently sold on Amazon. I enjoyed speaking with Joseph and learning more about him and about his writing projects. Please join me in finding out about Joseph and wishing him the best of luck with his writing.

J Lewis Bio Pic 11-29-12

David:  Tell us a a little about your self. Where are you from?

Joseph:  I grew up in the Midwest, Wisconsin, but began teaching and coaching high school in Wyoming. I then coached college basketball at the University of Nebraska-Omaha where I received my M.S. in Counseling.  I came back to Wisconsin, moved to California, moved back to Wisconsin, and am now living and working in Virginia.  I also like to travel.

David:  Give us three “Good to Know” facts about you.

Joseph:  Met my wife, Kim, in California, but we both grew up in Wisconsin and attended the same University, though ten years apart. I have spent 38 years in education as a teacher, coach, counselor and administrator. I had a rock and roll cover band throughout middle school, was a soloist in high school, and even recorded a commercial or two.

David:  What do you do when you’re not writing?

Joseph:  I am a high school principal and a father of three (though my son, Wil, was recently deceased).

Taken Lives Cover

David:  How would you describe this book to someone who has not read any of your previous novels? 

Joseph:  I write thrillers with a lot of mystery and suspense.  My main characters are teenagers, and I would like to think that though I write thriller fiction, my stories contain a message of hope, courage, and survival.

The book currently found on Amazon is titled Taking Lives and has received particularly excellent reviews.  It is a work of fiction and the prequel to my trilogy.  It is about human trafficking, specifically children, and based upon my experience as a counselor and as an adjunct educator who had volunteered with an organization dedicated to children who are missing and sexually exploited.  The first book of the trilogy, Stolen Lives, is also a work of fiction, and it comes out November 10th.

David:  Is this part of a series and does it have to be read in order?

Joseph:  Yes.  Taking Lives is the prequel to my trilogy and introduces me to readers and readers to the trilogy.  I don’t believe one has to read it first, though I’m told by my beta readers that it is helpful in getting to know the characters and in understanding some of the action and thoughts in the series.  I think the series, actually any series whether mine or someone else’s, should be read in sequence.

David:  Which part of researching your book was personally the most interesting to you?

Joseph:  I think the facts from the Center for Missing Children, along with facts from the FBI site were interesting, but what was most interesting was listening to stories from kids and parents of those kids who had been abused and in at least one or two cases, still missing.

David:  When and why did you begin writing?

Joseph:  Way back in elementary school.  I had a marvelous sixth grade teacher, Sr. Josephe’ Marie, who I’m lucky enough that even today I can call her a friend. She used to give us story prompts whenever we finished work early.  These would be open-ended lead paragraphs and the idea was for us to complete it into a story.  This gave me my first love of writing.  I could never get or do enough of them growing up.

David:  How do you relate to the characters? And how does that help make them feel more like real people?

Joseph:  My characters are very real to me.  I see them.  I hear them speak.  I watch as they react.  I tend to write visually and vividly, and from what I’ve read from the reviews, the readers seem to “picture” them and “see” them too.  I will say that I have a couple of favorites and I think any reader will quickly tell who they are as they turn the pages.

David:  How important was it for you to make the book as realistic as possible?

Joseph:  Without realism, any book becomes boring and a “cardboard cutout” and that doesn’t interest me in the least.  Readers are so very intelligent and they can readily and intuitively feel when an author is lazy.  I’ve been told that Taking Lives and Stolen Lives is too gritty and disturbing.  Well, so is human trafficking and if I can disturb others, all the better because bottom-line, we need to protect our kids and educate the public.  I take pride in making my stories real.  If not, I’m wasting my time and the reader’s time.

David: Do you write with a detailed master plan, or take a general idea and characters and see where it goes as you write? Why? 

Joseph:  I have an idea and go with it.  I don’t outline.  I do a lot of prewriting in my head way before I sit at a computer to write.  There have been times when I sit down thinking that the story will go in one direction, only to be happily surprised when it shifts in a different direction based upon dialogue, action and setting.  I know it sounds crazy, but I mean it when I say that sometimes, my characters take over and I just become the facilitator.

David:  What inspired you to write your first book?

Joseph:  Jacob Wetterling’s story.  If you aren’t familiar with him, Jacob was taken at gunpoint in front of friends in October of 1989.  He was eleven years old at the time.  There have been many leads and a tremendous amount of investigation, but Jake is still missing.  Taking Lives is actually dedicated to all missing children, but specifically dedicated to Jacob Wetterling.

David: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Joseph:  I believe all and any writing, good writing, should teach a truth or make a truth apparent. So yes, in my writing, I want the reader to understand that the world can be both – sometimes at the same time – an ugly and beautiful place to live, and that there is always hope and that the human spirit is courageous and inspiring.

David:  What are you reading right now? Are there any authors that you would name as influences? 

Joseph:  I’m reading Death Comes Home by Jeffrey Bruff; Burn by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge; and Deadline by John Sanford.  I would say that Sanford, Patterson, and David Baldacci are my influences, but would give a shout out and nod to Nathanial Hawthorne and Edgar Alan Poe.

David: If you had a book club, what would it be reading — and why? 

Joseph:  Anything that is thriller fiction, in the crime/mystery/suspense area.  Can’t get enough, and as a writer, one has to read, especially in the genre in which one writes.

David: Where there any specific books that have influenced your writing the most?

Joseph:  Stephen King’s novella, The Body that was later made into the movie Stand By Me. I’ve read that particular story and watched that movie some many times that I think I can almost say the dialogue along with the characters.  Ghost Story by Peter Straub is another.

Stolen Lives Cover

David:  What are you currently working on?

Joseph:  I am currently writing the last book in the trilogy, Splintered Lives.  I’m about a fourth of the way through it.  I know how it will end and I already know the last scene.  I just have to get there.  The second book of the trilogy, Shattered Lives is already finished and waiting for publication, which will be sometime this winter or spring after readers have a go at Stolen Lives, due out November 10th.

Taking Lives may be purchased on Amazon via:  http://www.amazon.com/Taking-Lives-Joseph-Lewis-ebook/dp/B00MG2JAWE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407974964&sr=8-1&keywords=Taking+Lives%2C+Joseph+Lewis
