Today I’m at the Writing Wicket as Diane Lynn McGyver, my alternate ego who writes fantasy novels. Catherine MacKenzie interviews writers every Wednesday on her blog, so if you’re interested, drop her a line.

June J. Austin author of Sing Her Home

5x5Author InterviewToday I’m proud to introduce the first book by a new writer. June J. Austin is the author of Sing Her Home. I had the pleasure of interviewing June and asking her about her novel and the three-day eBook promotion that starts today.

Diane Tibert: What inspired you to write Sing Her Home?

June J. Austin: Sing Her Home started off as a question for me, I had asked myself one day-What would life be like if I was in a coma? Would I be aware of my surroundings even if I couldn’t open my eyes and communicate with others? Of course I went on to wonder if others had reported being aware of their surroundings while in a coma.

Diane Tibert: How did you come up with the title Sing Her Home?

June J. Austin: The title comes directly from the book. I will share that excerpt:

“What about Ruth?” I ask. “Will she live?”

Five Question Interview: “Concealed From Sight” by Art Burton

Art Burton authorAfter five months of author interviews, I’ve decided to switch things up a bit and host The Five Questions Interview. It a quick, to the point interview with authors who’ve recently released a new book.

Art Burton is the first author to participate in The Five Question Interview

1) What is the title of your recent book? Is it a series, what genre is it and is it suitable for all ages?

The title of my most recent book is Concealed From Sight. It is a murder mystery book and is mainly aimed at an adult audience. Women will enjoy this book. There is not an abundance of swearing in it, but I’ve tried to make the people real. Outside of the language, maybe 30 words out of 94,000, it is suitable for anyone. It is a series to the degree that the two main policemen, Detective-Sergeant Jim Mcdonald and Corporal Scott Bowen, show up in all three of my published novels and in two of the ones I’m currently working on.

I have published one novel to date.
