Interview with Doug Cooper, CRYSTAL DECEPTION Series

Thank you, Debra, for this opportunity to appear on your blog.

Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?
I am excited that my new book Crystal Rebellion, the third full-length scifi thrill-ride in The Crystal Series, is now available on Amazon. I love the story, think it’s my best work yet, and am anxious to learn if others agree.

The first two books, Crystal Deception and Crystal Conquest, established the series characters and defined their world—Earth in the not-too-distant future with aliens at our door and AI helping with our defense. This new book is different because it introduces our heroes as an established and functioning team rather than one in the process of formation and self-discovery. I’ve written the story as a stand-alone book so new readers can start with it and enjoy the fun.

The setting is on Mars, and the bad guys are three AI crystals left behind after the last alien invasion of our solar system. The story contains all the grand elements of The Crystal Series tradition—aliens, spies, artificial intelligence, romance, and battles in space! Our heroes struggle to save the world and soon realize they need to save themselves. I’ll leave it at that as I don’t want to reveal any spoilers. I invite everyone to give the book a read and enjoy the fun!

Do you have a favorite character?
I love them all. Central to each tale is, Criss, a four-gen AI crystal with the cognitive ability of a thousand humans, and the overarching personality in the series. Hard-wired to protect and serve his human leadership team, Criss is able to project his awareness through the web, and so we find him at the center of each story’s intrigue.

The team includes Dr. Jessica “Juice” Tallette, the crystal scientist who created Criss; Cheryl Wallace, an ex-captain of the Fleet space cruiser Alliance; and Sid, a one-time covert spy for the Defense Intelligence Agency, who now helps Criss protect Juice and Cheryl.

Crystals that think? Are these fantasy stories?
No, they are science fiction in the tradition of Star Trek and I Robot. It turns out that the chips in our computers, smartphones, and even cars are computer processors made from crystalline silicon. And artificial intelligence researchers around the world write software programs that run on clusters of these silicon crystal chips. Once refined, the final architecture will be shrunk to fit on a single chip. So to me, “AI crystals” seem like a predictable technology. The “AI with sentience” issue is the wild card. But hey, these are alien crystals.

What factors influenced your decision to self-publish your books?
I chose to become an indie author for a number of reasons: I’m eager to get new works out to readers in a timely fashion, I want to maintain long-term control over the work, and I’m excited by the entrepreneurial challenge.  Self-publishing has all aspects of the small business enterprise, including product creation, branding and marketing, finance, project management, and intellectual property concerns. I love exploring ways to pull those levers to advance my writing career.

Did you hire an editor to review your manuscript before publishing?
Absolutely. I am sensitive to the oft-cited notion that self-published works are too-often released without proper review. So all my books move through the same process: detailed beta critiques by a couple of experienced writers;  a developmental manuscript evaluation by Tammy Salyer, a talented book editor found at; then a line-by-line copyedit by Tammy; and then a final proofread by another professional editor. I make refinements between each step, and the process helps me produce a book that is technically sound so the reader can focus on enjoying the story.

Were you involved in the creation of your book covers?
I wanted the book covers to evoke the same general sense one might get from reading the story: teammates, or perhaps they are lovers, on a futuristic shoot-em-up adventure in space.

I worked with the talented designers at I suggested the idea that each cover show silhouettes of a man and a woman in a vague military-space-style setting, and hinting at a retro vibe. From that, they developed the covers. I love what they did, and I also like that, lined up, the covers themselves show a story progression in the action of the characters.

Do you belong to a writers group? Have they helped improve your writing?
I belong to a writers group—in a parallel universe—and it has indeed improved my writing. This past summer, while I waited for others to read and comment on Crystal Rebellion, I started an online journal—a fictitious story about me participating in a writers group. I challenged myself to post a humorous bit every few days. The results can be found at I put up 20 stories—more than ten thousand words—as I struggled to be humorous on a tight schedule. I had so much fun this summer that I will continue adding stories, but at a slower pace than before.

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
I begin with an idea in my head and then start writing.  I don’t plan, and in fact even prohibit myself from thinking too far ahead, because my joy comes from the creative process of writing into the unknown.

I write each scene in the order it will appear when published. The fun thing about this is that my stories follow a rotating point of view among the characters, and don’t always follow a straight timeline from chapter to chapter. So, I write a story that does not follow a strict timeline sequence, and that rotates among the viewpoints of the central characters, in page order.

And to really make it fun, I don’t allow myself to go back and change a previous scene to help me solve a challenge with the current one. To me, plot development is like solving a puzzle. I enjoy being at a particular point in an adventure, with characters deployed here and there, all with histories and in certain situations, and now I must move forward in a plausible and entertaining fashion.

It’s a slow process, but my key to success is persistence. I write every day for a few hours. And slowly but surely, I write books. In this manner, I wrote Deception, Conquest, and now Rebellion, taking just over a year to write full-length stories (ranging from 96-99K words each, for those who think in word count). The editing process adds another four months before publication.

What have you learned during your writing journey?
That writing is an art form. If I make it personal, it’s a joy to pursue.

How does your day job impact your stories?
My day job is Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Connecticut. In that role, I get lots of practice presenting science and technology in a manner accessible to a broad audience. It’s become second nature and reveals itself in my writing.

As one example, readers in the USA are familiar with units of distance being inches, feet, and miles. Elsewhere, readers are more likely to use centimeters, meters, and kilometers. So, to avoid the issue altogether, I use analogies. “The pole was as thick as his thumb,” or, “he could touch the ledge by standing on his toes,” or “keeping a steady pace, she walked to the farmhouse in just over two hours.”

I do this because I don’t want readers to be pulled from their immersive experience trying to picture a scene in their head using unfamiliar units. And while I’m not sure it matters in the end, it shows the level of detail I consider when crafting a story.

What’s next for you?
The epilogue of book II, Crystal Conquest, suggests the premise for this new release, Crystal Rebellion. And Rebellion’s epilogue suggests the premise for the next book, Crystal Escape. That’s all the clues I’ll give to my wonderful readers. I’m three scenes in on the new book and already know it will be the best one yet.

Happy Reading!

#Excerpt: PRODIGAL SON by Lisa Beth Darling


"Me? No, ma'am, I went to school at Saint Mary's Orphanage, that's where I grew up. But I was born at Saint Anne's." He'd been anticipating a reaction but when her eyes welled with tears and the hot cup between them spilled its contents over her hands it was more than he'd hoped, "Ma'am? Are you ok? Here let me take that."

Letting go of the cup she picked up a nearby dishrag to wipe the hot broth from her hands, "Clumsy sometimes, I'm sorry, did you get…did you get burned?" Even as she handed over the dishrag for him to clean his hands, Hannah shook her head slightly admonishing herself. Of course he'd been burned, what a stupid thing to say.

Settling the cup of soup down on his tray he gave her a smile as he held up his hands for her to get a really good look, "They don't feel anything. I got burned a long time ago all the way to the bone."

A bolt of ice shot down Hannah's spine as she wavered on her feet with her knees suddenly threatening to give out from under her. "I'm-I'm sorry about that."

"Why? You didn't do it, did'ja?"

With her throat threatening to swell so much it cut off her air supply and her knees growing weaker, Hannah grabbed her side of the counter to keep steady as she choked out a question, "What's your name?"

"Richard, my friends call me Ricky." Without waiting for her to reply, he slid the tray down the line where the nun was waiting to give him French fries and a chicken salad sandwich.  Taking his customary seat where he could see Hannah serving people from behind the line he watched her excuse herself and run off into the kitchen. 


In the final installment of the Sister Christian Series, the Court has demanded a hearing regarding Hannah's capacity. Hannah and Nick are falling deeper and deeper in love. Looking forward to a bright future together they begin planning their life together. A shadowy stranger from the past has set his sights on Hannah and her 3.5 million dollar trust fund. Is he really Rick MacNeill, the son Hannah thought died in the terrible fire at Saint Anne's? Is he someone sinister? The last of the family secrets come to light in this roller coaster ride of suspense, love, betrayal, and faith.

“Kimbal,” Dom called to his valet.

“Yes, my lord.”

“I shall be dining at White’s.”

“Yes, my lord.”

Dom scribbled a note to his friend Viscount Fotherby asking if he would like to join Dom for dinner. By the time he was dressed and had donned his hat, Fotherby’s answer affirming the invitation had arrived.

A short while later, just as a light sprinkle turned into a persistent rain, Dom handed his hat and cane to the footman at White’s and found his friend lounging in the room that held the club’s famous betting book. William Alvanley, another of Dom’s friends, was seated next to the window with another man staring intently at the rain.

He turned to Fotherby. “What are they doing?”

“Five thousand quid on which raindrop will reach the bottom of the sill first.”

Despite being close with many of the Prince Regent’s circle, Dom could not abide the excessive wagers his friends made. Alvanley would end up ruining himself and his estates at the rate he was going. “Are you ready to dine, or are you waiting the outcome?”

“Famished.” Fotherby tossed off his glass of wine. “Thought you weren’t coming to Town this year.”

“My plans changed.” Dom and Fotherby entered the dining room. “I have decided to take a wife.”

“Wife?” Fotherby choked. “Any idea who?”

“Not yet, but I have a list of qualifications. She must be well-bred, not given to fits of temper or strange starts, quiet, biddable, easy to look at—I must get an heir on her after all—know what is expected of a marchioness. And not prone to scandals. You know how my uncle hated them. I think that about covers it.”

“A paragon, in other words.”

Dom gave a cut nod. “Indeed. I could wed no one less.”

Thanks to their large extended family and unconventional courtship, the Worthingtons have seen their share of scandal and excitement. But nothing has prepared them for this...

The Dowager Lady Worthington isn’t quite sure what to make of country-girl Dorothea Stern. As the granddaughter of the Duke of Bristol, Dotty is schooled in the ways and means of the nobility. But her sharp wit and outspoken nature has everyone in a tizzy. Especially their cousin, Dominic, the Marquis of Merton.

Prematurely stuffy, Dom was raised by his cheerless uncle to be wary of a host of things, including innovation, waltzing, and most perilous of all: true love. Still, there’s something about Dotty, beyond her beauty, that Dom cannot resist. But the odds are against him if he intends to win her as his bride. Will he choose loyalty to his family—or risk everything for the one woman he believes is his perfect match…

“Do you remember Emma?” Lucas asked.
“As a matter of fact, I do. It’s a pleasure to see you again.” Abe held my hand. I remembered meeting him at Ray’s auto body shop, although I could have sworn he looked different. Shorter hair, maybe?
“Nice to see you,” I answered, returning his welcoming smile.
“Lucas, did you ever meet my brother, Henrik?” Abe asked.
“Call me Henry,” he said. He shook hands with Lucas first, then reached for my hand and kissed it gently. “Very lovely to meet you, Miss Emma.” He had a hint of an accent. Even though they both looked like they were mid-twenties, Henry acted much older.
I blushed. That kind of attention might be common wherever he came from, but not here in Westport.
“You’re adorable. I didn’t mean to embarrass you, darlin’.”
Drew returned with a tray full of shots before I had time to answer Henry. After introductions, Lucas gave a toast and everyone drank back the whiskey. I didn’t want one, but I drank it anyway. Actually, I choked on it. I didn’t think any of the guys noticed until Henry put his hand on the small of my back and asked if I was okay.
“Yes. Thank you.”
When I looked up at him, I realized he had a beautiful set of ice-gray eyes. The colors were piercing. Shades of white intermixed with hints of silver and turquoise. The longer I stared, the more the hues changed. Blues faded and whites darkened. Chills ran up my arms, but I couldn’t look away. I strained to keep my eyes open despite how heavy my eyelids felt.
A tingling swept over me until I was completely relaxed.
Like a kaleidoscope, Henry’s eye colors swirled. His pupils dilated.
I closed my eyes and saw a young woman with long, brown hair running through tall grass on a sunny afternoon. I felt the warmth on my skin, tilting my head back to catch the rays. I was tired.
Was I floating?
“Emma, can I get you something to drink?” Abe asked. His hand was on my arm. Stunned, I stared up at him. Did I just fall asleep?
I shook my head quickly. “I’m okay,” I mumbled. My eyes were dry and sore, and the strange sensation, the warm, comforting feeling I had, was gone.
Did I just imagine that?

#Excerpt: ENLIGHTENMENT by Liz Keel


I know the way I’m describing him might make you wonder why I’m not talking about him as something more than just a friend, but that’s the complicated part. You see, my feelings for him are purely platonic, but I don’t think he feels the same. The way Eli looks at me sometimes…the subtle hints…the way he grabs my hand and won’t let go, I think he wants something more and I’m not sure what to do about it. And however selfish this might sound, I need him in my life and can’t mess up our friendship, even to see if there could possibly be something more to our relationship. What if it all went wrong?

“Hey Thea,” Eli had whispered into my ear. “Mom says that when you’re discharged
you’re coming home with us, period. No arguing.”

I’d squeezed him back, gratefully burying my face in the crook of his neck, unable to communicate how much he and his family meant to me. At least they would be able to keep the loneliness at bay.

We sat like that for ages, me just breathing in his woody, musky smell, wondering how I was meant to function again. He twisted strands of my dark brown hair around his fingers and occasionally stroked his thumb along the side of my chin in a soothing manner. I could hear his mother and father in deep discussions with the police officers, and heard them say it was a miracle I was alive. Tell me about it. The only other person who had been around was Eli’s four-year-old sister Leela, who kept coming up with big, round, sad eyes, patting me on the leg whilst trying to get me to take Buggles, her much loved toy rabbit. She had known something was wrong and had tried her hardest to fix it in the only way she knew how.


After losing everything, all seventeen-year-old Thea wanted was to be a normal teenager. Instead, she was attacked by a mysterious creature she thought only existed in fairy tales. Now thrown into the unknown realm of Faey, Thea is forced to determine the difference between reality and fantasy, in a world ruled by a dark elite and a society wracked by intolerance and prejudice.

With the support of her new friends and a mysterious dark haired, blue-eyed guardian watching her every move, Thea will discover that when it comes to Faey, nothing is what it seems. Will her courage and desire to save this new world from darkness be enough? Or will Thea be the next victim to fall to the dark whispers of fate...

In-between writing, I teach in a primary school where there’s never a dull moment! I will also often be found Kindle in hand, reading a wide variety of genres but with YA fantasy and paranormal romance at the forefront of my reading list. Although I’m currently writing the second book in the Driel trilogy, other characters involving all things fantasy, paranormal and YA romance are jockeying for position, wanting me to write their story next, so watch this space!

Interview with Krysten Lindsay Hager, COMPETING WITH THE STAR

Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?
Competing with the Star is about a high school girl named Hadley who just starting dating this amazingly sweet guy named Nick—he’s thoughtful and caring and spends time with his grandpa in a nursing home. He’s her first love and her best friend, but then she finds out he used to have a crush on her friend, Simone, who happens to be a former TV star. That wouldn’t be so bad if Simone and Nick didn’t kiss after school. Both of them swear the other one made the first move and now Hadley has to determine who is telling the truth and who she can trust. The book can be read as a standalone, but there is also a previous book called Next Door to a Star where we see how Hadley moves to her current town and meets everyone. But you can read this book first if you’re more into romances.

Do you have a favorite character?
I love how the star, Simone Hendrickson, is the girl the others want to be like, but for as much as she has going for her, she is the most insecure one of the group. Hadley, the main character, is a favorite because of the way she is just finding herself and dealing with her insecurities and Pilar’s transformation from mean girl to loyal friend is amazing. But I have to say Nick Jenkins, Hadley’s boyfriend is probably my favorite because he is such a thoughtful guy whether he’s out with Hadley or going to the nursing home to spend time with his grandfather. He and Hadley spend time with his grandpa and it just shows what a sweet guy he is—the perfect boyfriend.

Have you ever had a minor character evolve into a major one? Did that change the direction of the novel at all?
When I was writing Competing with the Star, all of a sudden the mean girl character, Pilar Ito, showed a different side to her. You saw what was behind her defensive nature and why she came across the way she did. She went from a mean girl who went along with whatever the most popular girls told her to do to becoming Hadley’s friend who truly had her back. I loved the character transformation (Pilar is so different in Next Door with a Star) and I get a lot of messages from readers saying that she became they’re favorite character.

If you used a graphic designer/publisher’s designer, how involved were you during the creative process for your cover?
Ashley Byland from Redbird Designs was the artist. She sent me photos of the model that was on the cover for next Door to a Star and I got to pick the picture I liked the best. I wanted a beach scene and a pier in the backdrop to show that the book is set in a beach town (Grand Haven, Michigan.)

What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
I listen to music before I start to write and certain songs really inspire some scenes. Clark Manson’s “Track 9” song was on repeat when I was writing. I don’t put music on as I write though. I almost always write late at night. I used to only write at my desk, but I recently moved and I’m having issues writing fiction in my office. I have no clue why, but I’ve been taking my laptop into the living room to get inspired. I’ve never written like that before, but it’s working for me!

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
I tend to let the story and characters take me where they want to go. I did both an independent study and a creative writing class with author Thomas Foster who wrote, How to Read Literature Like a Professor, and he told me to let my characters tell me what they wanted to do instead of directing them. Great advice.

What kinds of marketing [twitter, facebook, blog, forums] are you involved with for promoting your book(s)?
Instagram is one of my favorite sites to share photos and interact with readers.
I also love blogging and putting stuff up about my books on my website. I think every writer needs to invest in a website and not just a blog:

Besides writing, do you have any other passions?
I love reading and learning new things—I’m really into watching documentaries and when I take an interest in someone like a writer, artist, or actor, I want to learn everything about them. Sometimes some of the little facts I pick up end up as story inspirations. Right now I’m also passionate about bringing awareness to Lewy Body Parkinson’s with dementia, which is the disease Nick’s grandfather has in the book. It’s based on my own experience having a family member with it and it’s not very well known so I want to help bring some light to it so other people won’t feel as alone as my family did.

Some fun facts about you, which do you prefer – dogs or cats? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or Tea? Talk or Text? Day or Night?
Definitely chocolate. I actually prefer to talk over texting because there’s always that weirdness over who stops texting first. Plus people seem to assume you’re available to answer a text 24/7, but with the phone you can just not pick up if you’re busy and no one gets upset.

What’s next for you?
I’m working on another YA book called, Dating the It Guy, as well as more YA projects, a new adult book, and I’m also working on the fourth book in my Landry’s True Colors Series.
