Please help me obtain this goal. Every little bit helps. If you can spare a dollar, share a dollar and share this link with your family and friends as well.
My latest book in the Ansheniu Series is Darkened Sunrise. I am currently joining as many book competitions as I can that I qualify for and I share the contest competition information with other writers so they can compete too.
Everywhere I go, my baby boy Ian will be going with me. He is my lucky charm and I look forward to blazing the trails with him, with your help. Peace and blessings to you all. :-) <3 <3 <3
I know, I know, it’s about time. Family and friends you can stop planning my kidnapping until after you read this installment in the Ansheniu Series and find yourself waiting for the next book. That is jumping the gun however, enjoy Darkened Sunrise and all it’s glory. I enjoyed every ounce of labor I put into it and I look forward to enjoying my efforts with the third installment and screenplay just as much.
Jade and her friends are all battle geared up and ready to go take on their first mission as the chosen four, reuniting the realms. Julius isn’t going to make it easy on them though. When he usurped Caroni from his brother with his evil wife Sasha, many beings from other dimensions found their way to Caroni and everywhere else its former inhabitants roamed. They help make up the new Caroni, the stripped down rough Caroni and Julius’ brother James, who was exiled to Cacara, is just waiting for the day when he can lead his people back to Caroni and take his rightful place as ruler. It’s a numbers game and as the battle for the inhabitants of the realms heat up between the brothers, will James and Julius allow the love they once shared for each other make a bridge to peace or are they so far gone they will now fight to the death? This question and more will be answered in the sequel to Ansheniu Rise in the Ansheniu Series entitled, Darkened Sunrise.
Those of you on Facebook, I am planning a book launch for Friday, February 1st. I’ll be posting the event soon and I’ll add the details here as well. For those of you on Twitter, I will be hosting a book launch the following Friday, February 8th. Please join me and the participate in the festivities. Look out for the book giveaways!!

Tracey L Pacelli – Time Warped – Teen Paranormal – Gypsy Shadow Publishing (www.gypsyshadow.com)
Release Date: September 14, 2011.
1. Tell us about your book.
Lanie Landry is a troubled teen who wakes up one morning to find herself in an insane asylum in 1969. There, she meets her biological mom for the first time and falls for a mysterious inmate.
I like to think of Time Warped as an angsty teen fairy tale. Lanie’s a misfit in her town, unable to relate to her adopted mom, who is somewhat of a religious fanatic. Nothing in her life works, that is until she warps back to 1969, and finds everything she’s been missing in life inside an insane asylum, of all places. New friends, a hot boyfriend, and a horrifying mystery–involving a sadistic head shrink- motivate Lanie to see herself, like never before. But, will her life have that typical happy ending we’ve all come to expect from a fairy tale? All I can say is there will be some unexpected twists that will bend your mind without permanently damaging it.
2. How did you go about getting published?
The new-fashioned way. I surfed the internet, otherwise known as the publishing wave of the future. I realized all the mid-sized publishing houses were becoming virtual places, and I researched till I found a place that felt homey for Time Warped. Gypsy Shadow Publishing (gypsyshadow.com), founded by two dynamos—Denise Bartlett and Charlotte Holley—dealt in my type of otherworldly material and proved to be the perfect fit for my manuscript. When you find the right place, all tends to go smoothly, and it did. Upon reading it, the ladies contracted me almost immediately and here we are!
3. Tell us about your marketing strategies.
I’m mounting a grass roots campaign, blanketing my area first and foremost, and spreading out from there. The managing editor from my local paper, The Weaverville Tribune, came over the other day and I baked him scones. Three of them burned, but I hid those! I think I bribed him well, but I’ll know for sure when the article debuts this month. I also belong to a local book club and the owner of the wonderful indie store that hosts it (Spellbound bookstore in Asheville), graciously decided to stock her shelves with Time Warped upon its release. So excited about that! Also, someone I don’t know all that well on Facebook liked my profile and sent it on to a PR friend of hers and now I’m getting ready to be a guest on a syndicated radio program called Women’s View Radio. You just never know where opportunities may come and I’m open to run with any that come my way. That’s why I sleep with my Nikes on!
4. What’s the best advice you could give to new writers who want to get published?
Check in with your intuitive flashes on a daily basis and keep a notebook handy. My best ideas always seem to come that way. For me, I write what I’m passionate about. If I don’t love my story enough to want to revisit it again and again, and yes…again, then no one else is going to get on board with it either.
5. Tell us what you would like your readers to know about you.
I love Fred and Ginger, even took tap dancing for a few years and was a ballroom dance instructor for like a month at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Charleston. That’s how much I love Fred and Ginger! But in the end, I realized my life wasn’t a musical and I quit. So now I settle for watching Glee and breaking out into song and dance, only once in a while, when my seafaring hubby’s out to sea and my daughter’s at school.
6. What are you currently reading?
I sort of resisted Hunger Games because of the violent theme, but it kept being shoved in my face. Everyone was talking and obsessing over it. And now, would you believe, they’re actually filming the movie here in my town of Asheville as we speak? So, finally yesterday, I gave in to the pressure and read the first page in my local bookstore…and then another page…and another…and I became totally hooked. Wow, such great writing. Why was I so stubborn before? Blame it on my Taurus Bull.
