An Announcement!

MY APOLOGIES

My Books are being updated,

I should have more information — about the updated release dates for both 

within a week or two, some minor things so those dates won’t be that far off…

And Everything will be much better!

And Book Three will still be released within the year:

paper TiaBrady_HardToHold_6x9_BW_200 paperback

I’m also in the midst of moving so a very time consuming schedule…

 But I will have more news to share about my series — in the next update, really good news! And I will be updating periodically about a variety of things!

IN THE MEANTIME

The pic on the left was when I was in Nashville, TN at the Ryman Auditorium for work — and the other is also Mood Related

so sharing…

And a writing quote from one of my favorite Authors and

Storytellers Stephen King:

King 1

Thanks for reading!!!

Tia

Congratulations!

CONGRATULATIONS TO MY GIVEAWAY WINNER 

Bridgett W.

& below is Location Inspiration from BOOK ONE Rock Star!

Washington Dulles International Airport 

 Definitely a favorite airport (love the Architecture) by Designer and Architect Eero Saarinen…

was there to pic up my boss and for a photo shoot

Author fun fact:

I was a Flight Attendant for United Airlines briefly, before deciding the idea was better than the reality..

Dulles airport was also the setting for one of my favorite films “Die Hard 2”. And although Dulles was the setting for the film, it was not filmed there. The movie was actually filmed at two different airports, LAX & a now closed airport in Denver…

I will also have answers to reader’s questions and more!

And if you haven’t gotten a chance to check out my Up Close & Personal interview for book two with musician and entertainer Kavan, it’s under my Behind the Scenes Two tab…

Now I’m off to mail a few copies of my books & the giveaway…

Thanks for reading, Tia

And my hardback copies should be available soon…

all should be okay for my Blitz on Monday…

I’m really looking forward to sharing my newest interview…

This particular Entertainer also compliments the theme of my book and series nicely. Plus, I really enjoyed getting to know a little more about him –and as I mentioned before I always learn something new about music and more, and you will to. I will link his interview when posted…

INTERVIEW

& Even though this is a Spring Release — I’m going to consider this my Summer Themed Interview & Book Release since summer is right around the corner…

tiatalks4bookreleasegraph

I will also link the Giveaway — where you can enter when it begins. Probably on an update next week. Or I will add it here…

GIVEAWAY

https://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/d04251232487/

which will include — a coffee mug, a hard copy of my book two, a mini-poster of the cover of book two, a music cd with an item from my interviewee…

Also if you want to check out why I originally decided to include the interview segment I posted it on my September 19th blog update (one of them) since I had two that day (it’s the first one) which explains some of my reasons…one of the main one’s being for mood, and to share good music and entertainment, and for fun since a Rock Band and Rock Star themed book…

Well that’s it for today. I plan on enjoying the outdoors as much as I can, with some vacation time and travel this pic was from a few weeks ago and a favorite place

Hope everyone has a great Saturday…

And Thanks for reading!

Summer, Book Blitz & More!

TEA TIME

irish 9

Release day is approaching…

and so is summer and I’m really looking forward to summer…

And besides being too busy — I love summer evenings, hiking,

and kicking back while reading a good book when I have the time…

not sure yet what will be on my summer reading list but I will add them to my Personal or Author goodreads, which you can find under my Travel with Tia tab…

I also added some new clips and music to some of my playlists and included with my tops and favorites one of my all time favorite films –“Blood Diamond” starring Leo DiCaprio & Jennifer Connelly, one of the most underrated films in my opinion…

a favorite clip below…

And there are quite a few upcoming projects, live shows, summer movie releases (like the newest Mission Impossible) I’m really looking forward to, travel, and more. Plus, an author related photo shoot in August, location inspiration for my book…

At The Riverwalk in San Antonio

A few pics below with one of my banner pics from my Book One Trailer (upper right), with the River Walk in the background and the stolen dagger necklace

I also came across some words I really like recently–so sharing…

with my Book One… 

and my Book Blitz

will be two days after my book’s release of June 2…

The Blitz information is below and is

SCHEDULED FOR June 4-8 and will have a giveaway included:

(a coffee mug, music cd, hardcopy of my book, poster of the book cover, and a couple extra’s)…so definitely check back and enter when available. It’s being hosted by Xpresso Book Tours but  I will share all of that info when it begins —

my blitz banner DeadRingerForKatieRealTimeBlitzBanner two

and finally, one more thought of the day…a quote I ran across that struck me…

“Gossip needn’t be false to be evil —

there is a lot of truth that shouldn’t be passed around…”

by Frank A. Clark

AND I THINK MY HEROINE

KATIE WOULD AGREE…

That’s it for today! Have a great week!

XOXO Tia

Schedule, Excerpt & More!

TEA TIME

I’m overwhelmed with my schedule, so I may update one more time before my book’s release on June 2, 2018…

I really need some days off, a spa week would be nice because (I want to feel pretty)!

This sums it up…

veronica1

Editing, editing, and more editing (and tonight I will be editing) again

So it’s a date with my computer and coffee…

All the while trying to figure out Social Media…I finally broke down and asked someone for help…I swear I wear myself out trying to figure and do everything on my own…

sun cover

I’d much rather be outdoors (above)…

AND ALL WORK & NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY right?…

So, I did take time to watch Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver an (incredible movie)

vinyl baby2

 Edgar Wright is a favorite director of mine, who also directed the Scott Pilgrim movie, another great film & favorite with a similar vibe

I loved the movie so much I added a clip from it to my favorites playlist (on my Author YouTube) check it if you get a chance…

The SONG

And some upcoming author and music related events:

EVENTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO & WORK

(I make lists) keeps me on track (My frugal find) list maker’s for One Dollar at Target

(in their bargain bin)

Live Concerts & Shows, a Book Party, Travel & Trips (new & old), Photo Shoots, collaborating with new colleagues…

Fashion week, On location inspiration video shoots, new Author Photo’s to be taken out of town (which is book location inspiration), get together’s with friends, and more. I’m hoping to share some of the author events…

    And Below are some personal pics (of my house) the backyard where I saw a bobcat (sorry no pic of the bobcat) and a beautiful owl landed on my deck a couple of times recently (I will try to get pics). He just sat there looking beautiful. So many creatures in my neck of the woods (just like my book) would love to do a Big Year…

My house reminds me of one of my favorite scary movies written by Director & Writer extraordinaire Joss Whedon…

CABIN IN THE WOODS

What do you think? Definitely a cabin in the woods vibe (although my house is in a neighborhood)…

Cabin is in my top 100 films…

FINALLY an Excerpt (the final one) for my upcoming book two (June 2, 2018)!

excerptrealtimetwo

I may create one more but most likely won’t have the time until after my book is out…

And advice…

slack2

Not so sure if that’s true (development) has been interesting,

but it is good advice cause ignorance is bliss

Thanks for reading & following!

Hope everyone has a good week…

XOXO Tia
