by K. Hanson
Genre: Adult/New Adult Thriller
Release Date: August 2018

Summary:

Kayla Falk is trying to move past the traumatic events of her mission in Syria and settle into a comfortable engineering job. However, when Morgan Bellamy, the younger sister of Kayla’s late best friend, disappears while on vacation, Kayla doesn’t hesitate to jump into action to find her.

Author Interview

  1. Tell us about your writing process. Do you aim for a daily word count, page count, or a couple of scenes each day?

When I’m in drafting mode, I typically shoot for 2,000 to 3,000 words per day. Once I’m really up to speed, I can do 3,000 words in a little over an hour. That may sound a bit crazy, but it takes work to get to that point. I make sure to set aside a consistent time each day to write. For me, that means doing it in the morning before work. If I do it before work, that means I don’t get derailed by a tiring day at work or something that comes up afterward. I also write by using sprints, starting with 5 minutes and working my way up to 30 minutes. During these sprints, I focus on nothing but getting as many words on the page as possible. No checking Facebook, phone, email, etc. I also turn off my internal editor and just go. I find that this helps with both the efficiency and quality of my writing, as I get into the groove of the book and just let the story flow out of me.

  1. What gave you the inspiration for your book? Is it part of a series?

Yes, Morgan is Missing is the second book in a series, but can be read without reading the first book. With this series, I want to both entertain and educate the reader. After the first book featured the conflict with ISIS, I wanted to tackle something closer to home with the second. That led me to choose human trafficking as an under-discussed but critical issue right here in the United States.

  1. Are you a pantser or a plotter? A bit of both?

I’m becoming more and more of a plotter, as it guarantees that I don’t miss anything important in the plot and it helps me write more efficiently since I know exactly where the story is going. The funny thing is that Morgan is Missing is my most “pantsed” book, then I went on to draft the next book in my fantasy series and that was the most heavily planned book so far. Having done both ways back to back, I definitely prefer to be a plotter.

  1. Do you prefer a certain type of music to listen to when you’re writing, or are you better with silence?

Listening to the right music is an important part of my writing process, as it helps me achieve the right mood for whatever scene I happen to be writing. For Morgan is Missing, the playlist I used while writing is fairly haunting and sad, as fits the subject matter of human trafficking. I won’t go through the whole list, but I will name a few highlights. Topping the list is a beautiful cover of Sweet Child O’ Mine that fits the mood. I also have some of Johnny Cash’s slower songs, some chilling violin covers of various songs, and classical music that fit.

If you want to listen to the full playlist, you can see it here:

  1. What book(s) are you reading now?

Right now, I’m working my way through the Dresden Files series and am loving it!

  1. Anything else you’d like us to know about this book or any others (past or future)?

Morgan is Missing is a pretty heavy book, considering the subject matter of human trafficking. If you want something a bit lighter as a chaser, you can check out my fantasy novel, Storm Raven, which is the first in a series starring a badass, sassy pirate captain. The second book in that series is with my editor now and will likely be out early next year.

The Girl on CameraThe Girl on Camera

By Morgan Dun-Campbell

Genre: Thriller

Age category: New adult, Adult

Release Date: March 14, 2018

Blurb:

Reality TV is about to get real…

“Are you ready to win the heart of the nation? Compete with seven other contestants for the cash prize? Change your life forever?”

Twenty-six-year old Rory Stevens is thrilled to be selected as one of eight contestants for new reality show: The Retreat.

However, on the second day of filming – during a televised broadcast from the show’s host – all power shuts off with no explanation: leaving the contestants, quite literally, in the dark.

Completely stranded, it is now up to Rory and her seven companions to figure out what is happening.

And then one of them disappears…

For fans of Naomi Alderman, Dave Eggers and John Marrs.

Excerpt

He leans forward again, and shakes his head. ‘I knew this would happen.’

‘Knew what?’

‘That you couldn’t go through with this. And you see, this is your problem. You’re acting as though you need to make some grand gesture, because this,’ he jabs his finger down on the tablecloth, ‘this is the risk. You and me, moving in together. And you can’t handle it. Because you never take risks. You just keep your head down, hope for the best. You’re scared of getting out of the comfort zone, and you always have been. All this talk of doing something spontaneous, seizing the moment – you know what? It’s all bullshit. I know you. You’ll attempt to try something new, maybe go to a cookery class on your own where you have to share a mixing bowl with the person next to you, and in a couple of weeks or so, when you’ve gotten bored of trying to find a new hobby, you’ll call me. And we’ll have wasted a perfectly good evening right here, right now. This is a Michelin restaurant, you know.’ He opens the menu again, scanning his finger down the options. ‘The mushroom risotto is supposed to be delicious.’

I can’t take this.

‘David. Please. You aren’t listening. Nobody is, that’s the point.’ I draw my chair out noisily, people from other tables glance over momentarily, before resuming their conversations. ‘I feel like I’m being suffocated. And if you can’t take me seriously, then we shouldn’t be together at all.’

I am gathering my handbag, when to my alarm, he reaches over and seizes my arm.

‘Rory. If you really are being serious, then I hope you remember this moment, over the coming weeks and months. We have a good thing, here. I can’t guarantee I’ll be there for you if you end up sorry for what you’ve wished for.’

‘I’ll be fine. Please let go of me.’ I steel my voice, waiting for him to let go.

His eyes darken, and he presses his lips into a thin white line.

‘Fine.’ He promptly lets go. I gather my handbag, brush strands of hair away from my face.

‘I’m sorry, David. I know you think this is just some momentary freak out, but it isn’t,’ I tell him. ‘But I’m sure you’ll make someone else very happy.’ He slowly shakes his head, then points at me, a strange smirk on his face.

‘Remember this moment. You’re always running, dear. Too scared to take a risk.’

*

By the time I get back to my flat after hailing a taxi, the emotions of the night have caught up to me. I pace the room, David’s words fresh in my mind. Never before has it felt so like a cell.

Too scared to take a risk? It wasn’t the reaction I’d expected from him at all.

I make myself a mug of Earl Grey, then sit at my laptop. Has it always been so quiet? The ticking of the wall clock is my only company.

I check my emails.

And there it is again. That one, tantalising message, staring at me from my inbox.

Bored of everyday life? Dream of being rich? Famous?

My mouse hovers over it. Of course, it could easily be a Trojan virus. But so what if it is? Isn’t that a risk that I am taking, David?

I click on the email.

THE RETREAT: A REALITY SHOW WITH A TWIST

Big Brother? Too tame. I’m A Celebrity? Outdated. What do we want? A cutting-edge new show to push the boundaries!

In five weeks, Channel 10 will be broadcasting our brand new show The Retreat live to the nation – will you be the one to seize the opportunity of a lifetime?

Eight contestants, four male, four female, will be carefully handpicked and taken to our secret location. The experience will include group tasks for the contestants – which may result in punishments or rewards – and a cash prize of £50,000 up for grabs – as well as earning the heart of the nation.

Do you dare to audition? Can you entertain an audience? Have you got a game-plan for the cash prize?

Auditions are being held in London on the 25th of September, as well as the 1st of October in Manchester the following week: click below for post code and directions.

DISCLAIMER: Boring people need not apply

There’s a video link, too. Caught up in the moment, I go ahead and click on it.

At first the screen is black. Then there is the scratching noise of a match being struck across the sandpaper edge of a matchbox, and an orange flame flickers on screen. Two slender fingers with purple nail polish are illuminated by the glow. The hand moves forward and a stunning woman’s face comes into view, with high cheekbones, light blue eyes and white blonde hair. She wears dark purple lipstick to match the nails.

‘Guys, I’ve got a secret,’ she whispers, and the flame flickers some more. Her eyebrows are raised high, and her breaths are short and fast. I assume frightened excitement is what she is going for. ‘But I haven’t got much time,’ she carries on, and she looks to the match for a moment. ‘This is the hottest show around and word about it is catching on fast. We are ready to make television history. We just need you.’ She is so mesmerising, I get that impression radio DJs are always trying to perfect, that she really is speaking just to me.

The flame is getting ever closer to her hand.

‘Are you ready to win the heart of the nation? Compete with seven other contestants for the cash prize? Change your life forever? This is a once in a lifetime chance. But you need to be in it to win it. Ever felt like spicing up life?’ I think of the spiced candles rack. ‘Are you ready to take a risk?’ Now I’m getting goose bumps.  ‘Great, cause we’re waiting for you,’ I almost expect her to finish the sentence with my name. ‘So hurry up, before it’s too –’ just when the flame is almost touching the skin of her thumb and index finger, she blows out the match. A second later THE RETREAT appears on screen in white, and flickers, lines and blotches covering the screen, like an old-fashioned film reel.

So here I am. Filling out an application.

As I say, and as David agreed, I don’t take risks.

But there’s a first time for everything. After all, what have I got to lose?

Author Interview
  1. Tell us about your writing process. Do you aim for a daily word count, page count, or a couple of scenes each day?

In terms of the writing process, I think the most important thing is to keep things ticking over. Some days you might write 4,000 words, other just 100. Writing should be an organic process, and I feel that – for me personally – setting a rigid structure for exactly how much to write, each and every day, disrupts the nature of it. I have gone for days on end without writing, and then will suddenly find myself writing 15,000 words in a couple of days. It’s important to live your life in the moment, because experiences are always invaluable sources of inspiration – particularly when it comes to drawing out a character’s emotional reaction. So, although in the past, I have tried to make the process more systematic, it never seems to work. Writing is just too random: as is life. Maybe I am fortunate that I have been writing since childhood, so it’s a hardwired habit now. But, I would advise to let it flow naturally, otherwise your story could suffer.

  1. What gave you the inspiration for your book? Is it part of a series?

This is a good question. I came up with the idea several years ago, when I was just thirteen. So it’s tricky to say what sparked the inspiration at the time. I know I’d watched that year’s Big Brother (fortunately I don’t watch it now), perhaps a movie set in the woods also left a strong impression? Often my ideas come to me subconsciously, there’s no clear external source. For example, for my current novel, the premise came to me, quite literally, in a dream – which has never happened to me before. I woke up, acknowledged it was a really interesting idea, and quickly jotted it down. Over the years, I’ve accumulated several novel ideas, trying to make them as imaginative as possible, and this is one of them. It’s a story I’ve been drawn to time and again, in-between working on other literary projects, because I still believe the premise to be fairly unique.

  1. Are you a pantser or a plotter? A bit of both?

Definitely bit of both. I think an author should certainly know the bare skeleton of the story – and should have an ending in mind (while also considering that this could change, depending on how the story develops). But, for me personally, I don’t transcribe each and every scene, because you need to give your characters room to breathe, and behave naturally – and you don’t always know what they will say or do, until you’re actually writing that scene. I always start with a premise, which is asking the question: ‘what if?’ So, in this case: ‘what if, you were a constant on a reality show, but something went wrong? All power shut off, and you were stranded without any idea as to why?’ Then there’s the protagonist. I always spend a while getting to know my protagonist, because they are selling the story to the reader. There are some exercises you can use, e.g. describing their bedroom, because the items a person keeps in their room says a lot about their personality. Then, they should always have some fear, or weakness, which they will have to face/come to terms with, during the novel’s climax. After that, I write the first few thousands words, letting inspiration come naturally. At this point, I’m generally mentally jumping ahead, and am brainstorming as I go along. But I do make myself stop, jot down the ending, have a clear idea of a beginning, middle and end, the ‘midway mirror moment’ halfway through the book, and what my protagonist’s main goal is throughout the novel.

  1. Do you prefer a certain type of music to listen to when you’re writing, or are you better with silence? 

Often, I will assign a song to a certain book – I’m not sure if other readers do this! When I first start reading a new novel that has me gripped, I’ll play a few songs, until I find one that fits the book’s ambience, and then play that on repeat. So, for example: The Secret History is paired with Oasis’ Supersonic. I would like to add that I am not normally a fan of Oasis, and wouldn’t have thought these two would fit. But, for me personally, they are now associated with each other. Other examples: The Girl on the Train is paired with Sia’s Cheap Thrills (but not the version feat. Sean Paul!) There is something haunting about the musical accompaniment of Cheap Thrills which works really well with that book. Because I should add, the pairings rarely have anything to do with the song lyrics. I also associate the song Lucky Man by The Verve with Stephen King’s 11/22/63, because of the sense of wonder and adventure in both the song, and the premise of the book. (FYI, this is an excellent King book – and it isn’t horror, it’s science fiction). There are also songs I associate with my own books. And, yes, I listen to music when writing, though not always. But I find it helpful to have certain songs I associate with the story. There are three songs connected with The Girl on Camera, but I’ll just share one of them: the song Crazy by Seal – which is most commonly known from the film The Devil Wears Prada.

  1. What book(s) are you reading now?

I’ve just started Force of Nature by Jane Harper, after thoroughly enjoying her brilliant crime debut The Dry, which won several awards. I’m also reading literary novel The English Patient, which has just won the Golden Man Booker prize. I generally lean more towards commercial fiction rather than literary, although I did recently read literary novel Call Me By Your Name, as the movie adaptation was my favourite film of last year. It was very well-written, but personally I preferred The Dry, which was utterly compelling, with fully fleshed-out characters, and a genuinely unpredictable ‘whodunnit’. I also enjoy non-fiction, and Carlo Rovelli’s Reality is Not What it Seems is currently top of my TBR pile.

  1. Anything else you’d like us to know about this book or any others (past or future)?

Certainly! I always try to make sure the novels I am working on have a unique premise. I don’t want to follow a tried-and-tested formula for a certain genre, though I know this can work for others. So, I hope you will look out for my future novels, if you enjoy The Girl on Camera, because you should discover a unique concept each time. My novels are also always fairly grounded in reality, but with a twist: because I love the union of the familiar with the abstract. I would never set a book on another planet, for example. I think real-world scenarios are fascinating enough. Also, I consider all my books to be set in the same ‘universe’: that is, some characters may feature in other books, too. For example, with the novel I am currently working on, one of the main characters is a friend of a friend of one of the contestants from The Girl on Camera.

The Azrael Initiative (Kayla Falk Series #1)
by K. Hanson
Genre: Adult/New Adult Thriller
Release Date: March 2017

Summary:

Best friends Kayla Falk, an engineering student, and Olivia Bellamy, who is studying nursing, are nearing the end of their college career when terrorists attack their university. Through a combination of cleverness, bravery, and luck, the two manage to foil the deadly plot. A mysterious man from the United States government, Mr. Hightower, sees their potential and attempts to recruit Kayla and Olivia for a program to take on ISIS. They initially refuse, but another terrorist attack that strikes close to home pushes them to change their minds and join the Azrael Initiative.

After several months of hard training, the two women are dropped into Al-Raqqah, the capital of ISIS, in Syria. Once there, they must blend in with the locals as they strike from the shadows to kill ISIS leaders, destroy their facilities, and free captives. As Americans deep within enemy territory, they know that they will be killed if discovered. As women, they also know that they would suffer before death. Walking the line between vengeance and justice strains their relationship. As they work to resolve their differences, the symphony of brutality around them ultimately pushes them closer together and forges them into the warriors that they were meant to become.

Chapter 1

Dodging to her right, Kayla sidestepped the fist aimed at her head as it passed close enough to feel the air move. Her auburn ponytail swinging as she danced around her opponent, Kayla watched with bright green eyes and waited for any opening, any weakness to exploit. She did not waste her energy on extra movements or attacks, preferring to let her adversary tire herself and present an opportunity.

Her opponent had a fierce look in her blue eyes as she came at Kayla with a strike of her left hand. Kayla stopped the blow. The hand latched onto her shoulder and dug into the flesh above her collarbone. Kayla staggered back at the pain. The hand released, then both combatants regained their balance.

As another blow came toward Kayla, she sensed that her foe had placed too much weight on her front foot. With a swift movement, Kayla slid to the side, grabbed the incoming arm, and sent her attacker tumbling to the blue padded floor.

“Enough!” said Olivia, with her arms up and palms facing Kayla.

“Next time, don’t let yourself get caught off balance,” said Kayla, as she extended her hand to help Olivia to her feet.

“Off balance? Naw, I just hadn’t done a somersault in forever,” grinned Olivia, her sapphire eyes twinkling. “Besides, I felt like taking a nap on this comfy mat.”

“Maybe next time I’ll give you that nap.” Kayla joked.

“Just make sure you tuck me in first,” responded Olivia as she brushed herself off.

“I believe that I’m two out of three this week. Hope you’re not losing your edge,” teased Kayla.

“Of course not. After kicking your ass all of last week, I thought you could use a couple of wins,” Olivia smirked.

Catching her breath, Kayla glanced around the gym where they held their morning training sessions. She saw other pairs finishing their own bouts and heading to the locker room. Training here required hard work, but Kayla always left feeling reinvigorated and confident about facing the challenges of being an engineering student. Besides, she always enjoyed throwing Olivia around a bit.

As the two of them walked toward the locker room, Kayla wiped the sweat from her forehead and Olivia shook her long blonde hair free of her headband.

“I’d better get ready so that I can head to the workshop to work on my senior design project,” Kayla said.

“Yeah, I need to head out, too. Class is in half an hour. See you for dinner?”

“Sure, we’ll just meet at the Union around 5:30, if that works.”

“Sounds good to me!” smiled Olivia.

As Kayla undressed and stepped into the shower stall to rinse off the sweat from her workout, she ran through a mental checklist of everything that she needed to do that day. Despite not having class on Thursdays, she had a lab report to finish and at least two hours of engineering homework to do. She also needed to spend a significant amount of time in the workshop working on her senior design project, a new design for a small, efficient wind turbine. She would certainly have a long day, but another day closer to graduation in just two months.

As she stepped out of the shower, Kayla dried her hair, pulled it back into a neat ponytail, and put on her jeans, a modest purple tank top, and black cardigan. She stuffed her workout clothes into her duffel bag and hauled it to her shoulder as she hurried out of the locker room.

As she left the Wellness Center and stepped out into the spring air of the South Dakota State University campus, Kayla Falk lifted her hand to shield her eyes from the crimson sun rising on the horizon, before she turned west toward the rest of campus. The closest building was the Student Union, a large building that was in a constant state of expansion. After countless meals and endless hours of studying within those walls over the course of nearly four years, it had become practically another home for her.

Kayla took a deep breath of the spring air. The grassy smell and cool atmosphere were refreshing changes from the heat and sweaty odor of the gym. In the distance, the bells of the campanile rang through the atmosphere. While she looked forward to seeing what the next chapter of her life brought, she would always treasure lovely mornings walking across campus.

As she strode toward the workshop on the other side of the SDSU campus, she slipped one of her backpack straps off of her right shoulder and pulled the bag around to her front to access its contents. Unzipping the small pouch, she pulled out an energy bar and an apple for her post-workout breakfast. The sight of the food made her stomach growl and her mouth watered as she bit into the peanut flavored bar.

While she chewed, she thought about how it was basically a candy bar for breakfast. It did, however, contain some protein, so it didn’t entirely lack nutritional value. At least she also had her apple for something a bit healthier.

As she approached the shop, she tossed her wrapper and apple core in the trash bin just outside. Opening the door, the sound of power tools greeted her, as other engineering students worked on their own projects. The oily smell in the air always reminded her of the time she had spent helping her father, a mechanic, in his garage. When she had been younger, he had her do simple tasks like changing oil or putting new tires on a car. By the time she had become a senior in high school, she could dismantle and reassemble an engine almost as well as her dad.

She walked over to the work area that her team had reserved for their project and set her bag under the workbench. Today, she had set the goal to assemble the system of gears that transferred energy from the turbine blades to the generator. Having worked with automobile differentials in her father’s shop, she had volunteered to design and assemble this piece of the project while other members of her group handled other aspects.

Kayla opened her project binder and flipped through the pages until she arrived at the diagram depicting her design. For several minutes, she reviewed the schematic and contemplated the steps she needed to take to assemble the collection of parts correctly. Her design was a planetary gearing system. She would attach the generator shaft to a sun gear, at the center of the arrangement, with blades attached to interlocking gears flanking it. By using such a system of gears, the generator shaft would rotate in the correct range of speeds when the blades rotated.

Satisfied that she had refreshed the design in her head, Kayla hauled the crate of parts to the top of the workbench. She pulled out each gear and piece needed for the assembly and arranged them in the order in which she needed them. For the next several hours, she fixed each gear in its proper place.

When she finished, she checked her phone and saw that it was already one o’clock. As the task at hand required all of her focus, she didn’t realize until then just how much she craved lunch. Kayla’s stomach growled as she gave the gear assembly a test spin. Satisfied that it operated smoothly, she set it in the crate before putting away all of her tools and equipment. After stashing her design binder in her backpack, she threw it over her shoulders and walked out of the workshop to find something to eat.

Reaching the Union, she went to Weary Wil’s Sports Grill to grab a burger to go. When it was ready, she put it into her backpack so she could head to the engineering building and find a quiet corner to grind through some homework. After she reached the building, she walked into the mostly empty study area, which was surrounded by rows of windows.

On a sunny afternoon such as this, it made for a cheerful and energizing work environment. Settling into a comfortable seat, she pulled out her lunch and munched on it as she started working through her Turbomachinery homework. Her work kept her busy until the time arrived to meet Olivia for supper.

At a quarter after five, Kayla packed up her notebooks, calculator, and pencils so that she could meet her friend. After sitting down for three and a half hours, she groaned as she stood up, her muscles stiff and sore after the morning’s workout. Gathering her bag, she left the engineering building to head back to the Union. As she approached her destination, she spotted Olivia Bellamy walking on another sidewalk.

“Hey Liv,” Kayla called.

Olivia jumped a bit as the shout startled her. She looked around for a second before spotting Kayla. “Oh, hi! Good timing.”

“Have a good day?”

“Yeah, classes weren’t too bad today and clinicals at the hospital were pretty interesting. You?”

“Definitely. Got a lot done on our project and made some good progress on my homework for the night. For now, I’m ready to grab some food and relax, at least for a bit.”

“Same here. Let’s head in and get a bite to eat.”
