Interview & Book Spotlight: City of Promises by D. Grant Fitter


Welcome author D. Grant Fitter who is promoting his book,   He joins us today for an interview.  Enjoy!

Publisher: CreateSpace
Date of publication: January 2013

When one credulous young country boy with lofty plans leaves his Mexican rural life for the promise and riches of the ‘big city’, will it live up to its reputation? In a unique fusion of fact and fiction, author D. Grant Fitter's social commentary gives a rare insight into life south of the border, recapturing the golden era of one of the world’s most eclectic cities.

"They call this the city of promise, Arturo, but it is a city of promises and very few of those promises are true."

Mexico City has always held a charm and allure that millions are unable to resist. Taking a trip back in time, CITY OF PROMISES revisits 1940s Mexico City, where one young man is coming of age with capricious gusto.

Arturo Fuentes' rise, his loves, and his relations with shady characters tell the compelling story of a place that both touched the hearts and shattered the dreams of millions.


Kari & Autumn:
What inspired you to become a writer?
D. Grant: It was more like a progression of events which grew into an irresistible urge that suddenly exploded on me late one Thursday night while working in my office in Mexico City.
Let me try to explain without boring you with the minute details.
A big part of my business life involved the writing of marketing collaterals and that somehow lead to freelance hobby writing for a magazine for a couple of years. Freelancing was so enjoyable that it expanded while I continued in my decent salary paying position. It is kind of complicated, but at any rate I had been working in Mexico City for about five years and my family was home in Toronto. The more fun poor paying writing became, the more frustrating high paying business became. My family was growing up and I was missing out. The next day after that Thursday night was my monthly Friday to come home for a break. Without knowing how we all might live, I announced I was heading for the airport and that I would not be coming back.
That was my commitment to a life of freelance writing and so on, and so on, and so on.  
 Kari & Autumn: Where do you come up with the ideas for your books?
D. Grant: We all have thoughts we want to share and ideas that need expression. I am terrible about writing exam questions or long essay assignments because neither of those were my own idea. They belonged to someone else. Gathered personal thoughts are one’s own and it is just a matter of determining the proper vehicle through which to express them.  In City of Promises, time spent in Mexico had presented me with a wonderful storehouse of observations a headful of interpretations and dreams about how life might have been.
The ideas for my books are just a matter of finding the right cast of characters and the proper settings to turn them loose on going on about their lives, working their way out of crisis, and coming up with valid explanations of matters I had been along time thinking about. My characters found their own way through history according to an actual calendar of events and I simply recorded it.
Kari & Autumn: What exciting projects are waiting in the wings?
D. Grant: Christ at War is the title of my next historical fiction. It is a mid-1920s story that establishes itself in Southern Colorado, shifts location for a while to El Paso, Texas before unfolding in its entirety in north central Mexico.
I like most of characters who showed up for audition and those I don’t much care for get their just treatment for being such nasty individuals.
Without revealing too much of the story line, Christ at War is about soldiers of fortune and my interpretation of United States involvement in a long and vicious upheaval south of the border.
That will be followed by another of my “truer than fiction” tales firmly in keeping with my Mexican novel theme. It spans events of a decade beginning in the mid-1960s and rise of a tyrant, President Luis Echeverria.     
The novel is now planned for release in October, 2014
Kari & Autumn: Who is your favorite literary character and why?
D. Grant: Now your questions are getting tough.
But aha, there is a fellow who has stayed with me, sometimes even haunted me for oh so many years since I first met him in John Steinbeck’s masterpiece, The Grapes of Wrath. Tom Joad is a symbol of hard times and a model of perseverance expertly molded by Steinbeck’s words. If he has stayed with me for so long, Tom Joad must be a favorite.
Kari & Autumn: Just for fun, if you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
D. Grant: Now you must be trying to prove how much you enjoy posing tough questions!
I would consider a tortoise because a tortoise lives for so many years and he can run just as fast the week before he finally dies as he could the week after he was first born. But no, he looks so bored. A rabbit is a better choice because they always look so sharp and happy. He would have to be a smart rabbit though. One like Bugs Bunny. He wouldn’t ever lose the race against the tortoise. 

About the author:


D. Grant Fitter is a citizen of North America. Born in Ontario, Canada and educated in Colorado, USA, he is convinced he was Mexican in his previous life. How else to explain such a strong attraction to Mexico and all things Mexican, including his wife.
His business career includes long stints of work in Mexico before yielding to a pesky urge to pursue freelance journalism for seventeen years. Meanwhile, Fitter’s Mexican roots continued to call. City of Promises is the product of his curiosity to understand why the culture of our close neighbors is so distant from our own.
He lives in Toronto and whenever possible, in a sunny hillside casita in the colonial town of Taxco, Guerrero.

Throwback Thursday: True Colors by Jayne Ann Krentz


Author: Jayne Ann Krentz
First published in 1985 by Harlequin

For two months, Jamie Garland had fallen in love... with a lie. Cade Santerre was every woman's fantasy - until the mask came off in a scandal that left Jamie shattered. Cade had pretended to be someone he wasn't. Worse, he'd used her in his elaborate attempt to catch a man he believed was a crook and a swindler.

Though Cade's suspect had escaped, Cade was still around - raw, masculine, overwhelming. He had some unfinished business with the man who had conned his innocent sister, and he needed Jamie's help. But Jamie had some unfinished business, as well: to find out if the man she'd fallen in love with really existed.
I don't even know what to say about True Colors.  I'm not sure that I have ever read a more TSTL heroine than the one in this book.  Jamie is 29, but I would swear that she never set foot outside into the real world until the happenings in this story.  I'm not even sure why I finished reading the book.  I kept saying to myself that no one could be this stupid.  But, Jamie is.  I'm not even sure why Cade would find her remotely interesting.  I can't even recommend this book and I do love this author. I say skip this Throwback and read a different one!

Blog Tour: On the Rocks by Erin Duffy

Author: Erin Duffy
Publisher: William Morrow
Date of publication: April 2014

Six months ago, Abby's life fell apart for all the world to see. Her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé, Ben, unceremoniously dumped her-on Facebook-while she was trying on dresses for the big day.

When the usual remedies-pints of Ben & Jerry's, sweatpants, and a comfy couch-fail to work their magic, her best friend, Grace, devises a plan to get Abby back on her game. She and Abby are going to spend the summer in Newport, in a quaint cottage by the sea, enjoying cool breezes, cocktails, and a crowd of gorgeous men.

But no matter how far away they go, Abby and Grace discover that in the era of social media-when everyone is preserving every little detail of their lives online-there is no real escape. Dating has never been easy. But now that the rules are more blurred than ever, how will they find true love? And even if they do, can romance stand a chance when a girl's every word and move can go viral with a single click?


On the Rocks was just the book I needed this week to put me in a good mood.  It's a well written and amusing look at one woman's attempt to put her life back together after a very public break-up.  Abby was trying on her wedding dress when her friend Grace notices that Ben, Abby's fiance, has broken up with her on Facebook.  After 6 months of eating ice cream and living like a hermit, Grace convinces Abby to spend the summer in a beach house in Newport.  There she meets new friends and begins to put her life back together.

I thought this book was funny, compelling, and endearing  at the same time.   I loved Abby and was rooting for her through the entire book.  The other characters were great and easy to relate to.  They added some great comic relief, especially Bobby. There are some great laugh out loud moments in the book, but then who wouldn't laugh at some of the outrageous men that Abby meets in her quest to find a new man. Imagine a guy with pink pants and a belt with whales on it...I had a serious 80s flashback for a moment! 

The best part about this book is the lesson that Abby and her friends learn.  That you don't need a significant other to make your life complete.  You only need to learn to love yourself to truly be happy.  Getting your HEA is just a bonus.  I highly recommend this book.  I think it would be a great book to take with you on vacation or to curl up with on a rainy day with a cup of tea.  I can't wait to see what Ms. Duffy writes next!

The Newcomer by Robyn Carr

Author: Robyn Carr
Publisher: Mira ( Harlequin)
Date of publication: June 2013

Single dad and Thunder Point's deputy sheriff "Mac" McCain has worked hard to keep everyone safe and happy. Now he's found his own happiness with Gina James. The longtime friends have always shared the challenges and rewards of raising their adolescent daughters. With an unexpected romance growing between them, they're feeling like teenagers themselves-suddenly they can't get enough of one another. 

And just when things are really taking off, their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos. When Mac's long-lost-and not missed-ex-wife shows up in town, drama takes on a whole new meaning. They're wondering if their new feelings for each other can withstand the pressure...but they are not going down without a fight. 

The Newcomer is the second book in the Thunder Point series. I enjoyed the first one and was looking forward to this one.  I'm happy to say that it is just as good.  The synopsis is a bit deceiving though, because it isn't just about Mac and Gina, the story also deals with Cooper and Sarah and their relationship.  In fact, it really encompasses a lot of characters from the first book.  

Landon and Eve are getting closer, Sarah is struggling with a possible reassignment and what that means for her and Cooper.  Ashley's boyfriend breaks her heart and she has to learn to deal with the loss of first love. Cooper's past comes back to haunt him in a big way.  And finally. Mac and Gina face their own obstacles for a HEA,  Kind of a lot, right? But, so worth the journey for all of them. The story flows well and  it was good to visit with all of the characters again.  I am really loving this series and look forward to reading the next book, The Hero

The Terminals by Michael F. Stewart


Author: Michael F. Stewart
Publisher: Self
Date of publication: April 2014

Sometimes the dead don’t want to talk.
You need Terminals to make them.

Terminals solve crimes in this realm by investigating them in the next.

Lt. Col. Christine Kurzow, fresh from a failed suicide attempt after she cost 11 of her soldiers their lives, is recruited into the covert unit of Terminals as a handler. It's an easy sell. If she's really determined to die, it’s a chance to give her death meaning.

But her first case—convincing a monk to chase Hillar the Killer into the afterlife to find the location of a missing bus and the children it carried—has her wondering how to make a dead psychopath talk.

Christine must follow the clues sent back by the shotgun-toting monk, who tracks Hillar through the seven deeps of hell, so she can find eleven kids before it’s too late.

Maybe this time killing a man will give Christine a reason to live.



The Terminals is definitely a very different book from any other one I have read.  The basic premise is that there is a government agency that has a medium who can communicate with the recently dead.  These dead are recruited from "Terminals". A terminal is someone who is dying and is euthanized to enter into the afterlife to try to solve a crime.  The main character wants to die and is recruited into the unit to be a handler for the terminals.  She will eventually get her own assignment.  

This story was a little confusing at times as there are a lot of characters to deal with.  I also felt at times that I was missing information. But overall, the book is well written and does make you think about the dying and the ethics behind euthanasia.  I should warn, it's not for the squeamish reader.  I found the things that were done to the missing children a bit hard to read.  The scenes in the after life were also pretty intense.  In the end, I'm not sure that I can say I really enjoyed the book as I'm not sure I really connected with it.  It has gotten great reviews, so check it out for yourself.

Heart of Danger by Lisa Marie Rice

Author: Lisa Marie Rice
Publisher: Avon Red
Date of publication: November 2012

Beautiful, brilliant, and determined, Dr. Catherine Young is on a mission to find a man who has vanished into thin air. Walking into a high-tech hideaway bearing an essential message to Tom "Mac" McEnroe, Team Leader of the betrayed Ghost Ops force, is the most dangerous thing she has ever done. The soldier she encounters is frightening and suspicious, but her senses reveal the man underneath: tough, honorable, and so breathtakingly masculine Catherine feels weak in his presence . . . But to surrender to Mac's passionate desires would put her life in dire jeopardy. Catherine has a gift that enables her to see into the heart of others—and looking into Mac's is like staring into the very heart of danger itself.

Going into Heart of Danger, I thought I was getting a straight romantic suspense.  Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to get a bit of romance and suspense, mixed with paranormal and Sci-fi.  I enjoyed the book and think it is going to be a good series over all.  The book takes place in the near future.  It's a little dystopian, but nothing too crazy that you often find in YA books. ( Please note, this isn't a YA book!) Mac and his colleagues have been wrongly accused of treason and have gone "off the grid".  Catherine needs to find them in order to help a patient of hers.    Catherine is a brilliant scientist who is working on some cutting edge Alzheimer's/Dementia research...or so she thinks.

I enjoyed the characters in the story.  I thought Mac and Catherine's connection was real given her talent for reading feelings.  I liked them together.  It was fun to see an alpha like Mac fall hard and fall fast!  More than the romance though, I  loved the sanctuary that they guys have built.  It sounds like a beautiful place to live, if only it existed in real life.  There are a few twists in the story and the action is fast paced and exciting.  I can't wait to see how everything plays out in the next book, I Dream of Danger.

Blog Tour: Righting a Wrong by Rachel Anderson


Today, I have the third novella  in the from the Ripple Effect Romance Novella Series.  It is a series of 6 clean novellas by 6 different authors. 

“Like a pebble tossed into calm water, a simple act can ripple outward and have a far-reaching effect on those we meet, perhaps setting a life on a different course—one filled with excitement, adventure, and sometimes even love.”

Seven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year ended in a fiasco. Only Jace Sutton knew the real reason why—that she was a spineless coward. Now, seven years later, her father’s been in an accident and needs help, and Cambr has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and boards a plane, hoping against hope that Jace is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs—in the past.  If only life worked that way.
Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she’d led him on, bruised his heart, and left town without a backward glance, he was forced to pick up the pieces and try not to hate her for it. Eventually, he put it behind him and moved on, creating a life for himself in his beloved hometown. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jake instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs.  If only it were that easy.
Ever think about the one that you left behind and wonder if you made a mistake?  When Cambri returns to her home town to take care of her father, she begins to think that she may have made a mistake running away from her best friend, Jace.  Righting a Wrong is a great addition to this series.  Not only does Cambri realize that she might want a second chance with Jace, she is also able to start healing some wounds between herself and her father.  
I loved Cambri.  I didn't blame her for wanting to get out and "see the world".  Sometimes when you go away and come back, that is the only way to truly appreciate what you had in the first place.  I was hoping that she would realize Jace was the one for her all along.  I loved Jace in the last story and was hoping he would get his HEA!  Lydia's story is next.  I look forward to reading about her big adventure!

Blog Tour: Duke City Split by Max Austin

Author: Max Austin (AKA Steve Brewer)
Publisher: Alibi (Random House)
Date of publication: April 2014

Bud Knox isn’t your average bank robber. He’s happiest fixing a nice lunch for his wife on her lunch break or watching his two young daughters play soccer. He leaves the boldness and brawn to his partner, Mick Wyman. In the past fourteen years, they’ve hit nearly thirty banks all over the West—everywhere but “Duke City,” their hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico. 
 
So when Mick calls him about the perfect job, Bud is less than convinced, because the target is on their own turf. But with the potential to haul in millions, Bud simply can’t say no. If they do this job right, Bud may never have to work again.


I flew through this book and I'm not sure I let go of the breath I held until the end of the book.  It was that exciting.  Duke City Split starts out fast and never stops.  It's like one of those movies that starts out with a bang and you just have to hold on for the ride.  After Bud and Mick agree to help a young kid rob a bank in their own hometown, the "easy job" turns out to be their biggest mistake.  As the reader, you never know who is going to pop up wanting a piece of the action.  Nor do you know who is going to be safe.  

Even though they are criminals, I found I liked Mick and Bud.  Especially Bud because he is a family man who is upfront with his wife about his "job".  In general, you aren't supposed to root for the bad guys, right? But as you read, you can't help but hope Mick and Bud get away with it.  The ending had me yelling in frustration.  Not because it wasn't good, but because I wanted more!  This is supposed to be the first in a trilogy, so I can't wait to read the next book.  I definitely recommend this one.  It's a quick read that you won't want to put down!
Enter to win some exciting prizes from Random House!

Trinity Stones by L. G. O'Connor

Author: L. G. O'Connor
Publisher: She Writes Press
Date of publication: April 2014

Anxiety-ridden New York investment banker, Cara Collins, has little to smile about on her twenty-seventh birthday between a hostile work environment and her impossible romantic situation with her longtime friend and first love, Dr. Kai Solomon. But before the day ends, she learns she has inherited $50 million—a windfall that must remain secret or risk the lives of those close to her. 

As Cara unravels the truth surrounding her inheritance, she makes a startling discovery: angels walk among the living, and they’re getting ready to engage in a battle that will determine the future of the human race. In the midst of these revelations, she meets mysterious and sophisticated Simon Young, who offers her the promise of romance for the first time since Kai—but when Kai and his daughter are kidnapped by dark forces, Cara must choose: accept her place in a 2,000-year-old prophecy foretold in the Trinity Stones as the First of the Twelve who will lead the final battle between good and evil . . . or risk losing everything she holds dear.

Trintiy Stones is a unique take on the Angel/Nephilim genre. Cara's life changes when she finds out she has an immense inheritance coming her way.  The catch is that she can't talk about it.  Once she finds out the real reason behind it, she must decide if she will answer her calling.  It turns out that she is a Seeker and part of a Trinity.  As the Seeker, she will one day try to hep someone make the decision between good and evil. It's a bit convoluted, but as the story unfolds the idea becomes clearer.

 While a little slow at first, I ended up enjoying the story in the long run. In the beginning, I felt a bit disoriented and then there was a huge information dump. But once the real story got going, I loved it. I liked the idea of the trinity and stones.  There is the Seeker, the Guardian and the Messenger.  And in the middle is the Trinity stone, the one who needs the help.  As I said earlier, it's a bit convoluted, but it makes sense as the story progresses.  The characters were fun and interesting.  I loved the bond between Simon and Cara. That their souls recognized each other was very sigh worthy.  They were a lot of fun to watch.  

The book is filled with romance, science, angels and of course evil demons.  This is a great debut book and the first of a promising series.  I look forward to reading the next one!
