1/6 Queshtions

 

1) What got you started on the path of being a writer ?

 

1. Writing was always something that came to me naturally. I have all these people in my head. The only way to get them to shut up is to write their stories.

 

2) Who inspires you to write ?

 

2. The characters inspire me. Each new story, no matter how silly, is a chance explore the complexities of life.

 

3) Can you give us a brief description of your books and characters you enjoy writing

about ?

 

3. I have several different series of book:

 

The Literal Leigh Romance Diaries

— A 20 something school teacher accidentally finds magic and becomes a witch.

Magic, Mayhem, & Chaos follow, especially when she’s compelled to write steamy romance stories. Nothing goes right for Leigh when she realizes her magic is quite literal, in the sense that everything she writes comes hilariously true.

 

Karma Inc —

 

Is the result of Kelly & Ezzy, two vulgar and snarky witches, who get tired of waiting for Karma and decide to take matters into their on hands. When they meet a new witch who offers to take their business Karma Inc to a whole new level, dead bodies start piling up.

 

Tales From the Paranormal Plantation —

Everyone love Gertie O’Leary.

 

This hair-brained witch has been frozen for 120 years, thanks to a few magical disasters…like the Great Chicago Fire and the sinking of the Titanic. Fun and disaster abounds when this old tie witch meets modern day romance.

 

Riverton Romance Series —

Love, Mystery & Murder is the theme for this series. Contemporary romance with an erotic twist.

 

Éveiller Drive —

 

Turn up the heat with Éveiller Drive

Six neighbors, six women drawn to each other. Over the years their friendships blossomed from friends to sisters. Together they tackled the challenges they faced in juggling their complex roles as women, wives, and mothers. Now, the time had come for them to take on the most important challenge yet. To restore the passion and romance to their marriages that had been neglected through the years.

These are the stories of six couples.

Six stories of rekindling and reawakening their romance. Welcome to Éveiller Drive.

 

4) Which character do you enjoy writing the most ?

 

4. I love all of my characters, I really do. But I love Ezzy and Kelly. They have a very unique friendship and they ALWAYS have each other’s backs. The snark and comments that fly from their mouths reminds me o me and my bestie.

 

5) Would you ever consider making your books in a series or movie ?

 

 

Any of the Witch books would be great for a Showtime or HBO series due to the graphic nature and content.

 

6) Any advice you like to give to future AUTHORS ?

 

6. Advice to new authors — Sit down and write it. Also file a copyright the second it is ready for publication!

I am very honored and excited to announce my PA ( Personal Assistant )

Tracy , who is also a NEW

Columnist to

PartyWills Online Publications Magazine

expect lots of cool things with her in the future !

 

Welcome to the team Tracy !

 

Below is some insight into Tracy !

 

 

Being a fan in the book world

 

I guess I should start this off by telling you a bit about me.  Hi my name is Tracy age 39 (yikes I’m approaching 40 lol). I’m a married mother of two teenage boys age 15 and 18 which means I’m in teenage hell which I’m sure some of you can relate to.  My husband and I have been married for 15 years now.  I love country music, I’m obsessed with Luke Bryan right now.     I love to crochet and read but I think reading has Trumped my crocheting lately though.

Now On to why I’m writing this which is about being a fan of this book world. Social media has made it so much fun for us fans in a lot of ways.   Not only do we see lots of book recommendations (omg my kindle has so many books to be read on it lol) but we also get to connect with each other and our favorite authors (well actually we stalk them but they love it).   So I started by reading just for something to do like most of us have.   Then bam I started getting ads pooping up for different books on Facebook  (so many book choices. Seriously its like drugs for me lol).  Let me say right off I read different genres, if its good ill check it out.  Like you guys I have my favorite authors but I love gaining more. I can’t tell you how many times while reading a book I found the author and discussed the book (ok it was more like harassed them) while reading their book. They were all so awesome about it and answered my questions or listened to my point of view of the story.  I think the author I was worst with was Nicholas Bella.  He writes mm paranormal and has two amazing series out called  the New haven series and demon gates series (holy crap they were intense and fun to read I highly recommend them).    I bugged him daily while reading the books.  I was waiting for him to tell me to go away but like most indie authors he never did.  Now he’s a Facebook friend and we chat often.  It’s really fun to pick there brains on their work and I think they get a kick out of it.   Most of these authors love their fans as much as we love them.  See I think its like partnership really.  Without each other this wouldn’t work.

Fans. Wow I’ve met so many awesome  fans of books from around the world who have now become friends.  To not only have a common subject  to talk about but to also support each other in our real life drama is a blessing.  Lets face it reading is an escape for us from reality of our day to day life.  Lets face it, our jobs, kids and spouses can drive us crazy but once we dive into a book it all just seems to go away for that brief moment in time.   We get to imagine we’re in a different place, a different time or even that were different people.  I think that’s why authors write to. I think its just as much of an escape for them as it is for us and they get to be all those things to.  After all we all could use it since life can be cruel sometimes.

So for all the bad that’s said about social media I think it’s a good thing for both fans and authors and I hope authors continue to be as open with us as they have been but we as fans have to remember authors are real people to with feelings just like us.  So we should respect that or they might not be as open to talking to us.

Keep reading. Have fun. Be kind to each other.

” SuperGirl ”

Ep19 : Worlds Finest

Review by

Willy Garza ( PartyWill )

 

Totally LOVED the EPIC Episode , it was soo much fun seeing Kara interact with Barry and watch him be a superhero too .

It was cute how he always introduces himself then pulls off his mask , LOL

I wanted to reach into the tv set ..

” Barry stop telling people you are the Flash ! ”

 

Cat Grants quirkiness always gets me giddy she’s nobody’s fool watching Barry defend the title of Flash when she suggested the new superhero in town should get a name .

 

Kara

” You knew he was The Flash and didn’t say anything ?! ”

 

Cat Grant

” I know everything Kara ,

he was either a superhero

or a mormon ! ”

 

Lol , that was such a fun tag line from

Cat Grant I truly enjoyed !

Jimmy Olson sure got jelous !

 

The race or that what could have been a race is just Barry playing around as if to say ,

” Catch me if you can ! ”

 

Thanks

Cbs

CW

 

KUDOS to Cast , Crew !

 

This one’s a major episode for the record books !

 

It was such a joy watching it with my 8year daughter who says ,

” Daddy , I bet Flash wins he’s faster in racing Supergirl ! ”

Q&A with Jason Caceres

Interviewed by :

Willy Garza ( PartyWill )

 

Midnite Edition

April 28,2016

 

 

Recently I was very honored to interview a very talented actor by the name of

Jason Caceres who if you didn’t see in

” Criminal Minds ” better get to watching !

Hollywood has found its next big star ..

 

 

 

1) What got you started as a actor ?

 

I’ve been acting since I was about eight, I believe. Maybe even earlier. I got started acting for two main reasons. The first was that my brother had this teacher, Ms. Valpuesta, for third grade. She noticed that my brother was a little reserved and wanted to help him break out of his shell. She suggested acting classes to my mother as a means to help him find his own voice. Of course my mother would never sign up just one of us for an activity so we both did it. Then we joined the Boy Scouts of America where I quickly became in charge of all of our artistic ventures. That was a self-proclaimed position, obviously, as “Head of the Arts” was NOT a position that was available in our troop. From there, I kept doing community theater and school plays until I went off to major in Theater in college. I acted a bit professionally during my time in college until I graduated and made the leap to Los Angeles.

 

2) Which projects have you done so far ?

 

I have been very lucky since moving out to Los Angeles just a few years ago and have gotten to be part of some really amazing projects. One of the first projects I ever did was a music video for Steve Grand called Back to California. It was my introduction into the professional acting world in the city, and it could not have gone better. He is one of the nicest guys in the world. After that I did a few more music videos including “Wild Heart” by The Vamps, “First World Problems” by Bart Baker, and “My Nemesis” by Five Finger Death Punch. I thought for a while that music videos would be my go-to since I seemed to be booking so many. I started gaining a bit of traction commercially when I booked a role on an AT&T campaign, which was a lot of fun. From that came parts on commercials such as “Topps: Baseball Cards,” “Bullet Liner,” “LG,” “Curacao,” “Coca-Cola,” etc. I also started to see some head-way when it came to web series. I booked a role in a web series called “Where the Bears Are” playing a teenager named Gabe. They loved me so much that I recurred in Season Three and Four. I also was very fortunate to star in a web series that has over five million subscribers called “How to Survive High School” where I play Juan. Then I started seeing small TV roles come through, such as stints on “Unusual Suspects,” “Murder Book,” “Blood Relatives,” and eventually ‘Criminal Minds.”

 

3) How did you get the guest gig for Criminal Minds ?

 

It took a lot of work to finally book a part on Criminal Minds. I had met Scott David, the casting director almost two years ago. I auditioned for that show, it must have been about five or six times, until I finally booked a part. Most people are under the impression that once you audition for something, you either get the role or you don’t. But that’s not always the case. Casting Director’s audition anywhere from 30 to 100 people for each role, and sometimes those roles are nothing more than just one line. If you don’t get the part the first time, it doesn’t mean that they didn’t like you. It just means that someone else fit the part more perfectly. If you did a good job in the audition room they will bring you back in for another role eventually.

 

Did you meet Shemar Moore ?

 

I, unfortunately did not get to meet Shear Moore. I don’t think he is in my episode because he was not at the table read either.

 

4) If you could do a feature movie with any two actors in Hollywood who would you choose ?

 

Oh, this is a hard one. There are so many actors that I look up to in Hollywood. I would have to say Angelina Jolie because she’s a beast. I’ve been in love with her since Girl, Interrupted. To be able to work alongside her and pick her brain would be a godsend. The other one I’d pick would be Johnny Depp. He’s everything I ever want to be. He is the living definition of a transformative actor. The guy’s got range like no-one else.

 

5) What do you do for downtime when not working ?

 

I don’t have much downtime between auditioning and working. I like to stay busy doing local Los Angeles theater, which is a great way to keep visible and meet people in the industry. I also run my own youtube channel where I post videos once a week, typically Mondays. Aside from that I love staying home and watching Netflix. I’m currently binging on The Vampire Diaries, my latest guilty pleasure.

 

6) Any advice you can give to others wanting to break into the business ?

 

First, I’d say to really evaluate for yourself whether this is something you really want to pursue or not because it takes every ounce of energy to break through. If this is something you can’t live without, then don’t live without it. Give it all you’ve got, and don’t stop until it’s yours. Also, don’t listen to anyone but yourself.

 

 

Thank you Jason for taking time to talk with your fans !

* Writers Break *

Hola Amigo’s ,
I felt it was only right to share with you loyal readers and friends I am going to be stepping out of the limelight as a writer .
I will still be releasing my 2nd children’s book for the teens to enjoy .
I myself am just going to take a step back from writing books to get published for now .
I am not quitting just taking a break .
I notice there’s too much hatred in Amazon and Goodreads from non readers leaving hateful reviews that sadly not only affects sales but Authors too .
I feel it’s better playing it safe than just getting in that mess .
I learned 4 M/M Romance Authors quit or basically retired .
That’s not my intention .
I still write FanFics so I am not truly gone
Thanks for your support !
