BOOK 1:
Title: Runes
Author: Ednah Walters
Publication Date: May 20th 2013
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Blurb:
Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.
Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.
Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

BOOK 2:
Title: Immortals (Runes #2)
Author: Ednah Walters
Publication Date: August 5th 2013
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Blurb:
Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something...
Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.
So Raine comes up with a plan…
She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again.
But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.

How Do I Find Time to Write (while raising five children, a husband, and having an ADHD cat.)

Writing is like reading, which means I have to do it or I’ll go insane. I accepted that a long time ago. My husband gets it. The kids get it (most of the time). The mice get it. BUT darn it, the cats just don’t seem to get it.

They sleep on my keyboard. Stand on their hind legs, lift themselves up and nudge me with their front paws. They curl up on my chair and act like I’m bothering them when I try to kick them out. And when pick them up and put them outside my door, that’s when they push on the door like bratty little kids. I swear, my cats are possessed. One is worse than the others.

So what do I do when I wanted to write undisturbed, I turn on the radio, lock the door and write. Don’t call animal control on me, okay? They are well fed and their litter cleaned, and their fur brushed. By the way, this is what happens when kids are not at school. The cats get to bug them when they are at home.

During school days:

M/W/F: I drop the kids off at school, come home, check my e-mail, stop by FB to check DMs, swing by my critique group because we always check in on Mondays, then I fast draft. For 2-3 hours, I write and do research… Do research and write, until lunch time(cup of spicy noodle soup or salad). In the afternoons, I do internet rounds then going over what I wrote in the morning.

Pick up kids time at 3, take them to their activities, back home and cook while they do their homework. Translate that to chaos in the kitchen/dining room area. After dinner, the kids get to watch something on Netflix (we don’t have TV, we watch everything online) while I sneak in an hour of writing.

Then it is off to listening to audiobooks (while I either clean up the kitchen or write-if I get my teenage daughter or son don’t have homework and remember to do it).

After everyone is in bed at 9:30, I’m back writing until mid-night.

T/Th, I mix it up a little. I have zumba class from 9-10, then back to writing. Saturday morning, zumba in the morning then back to writing as the kids take their piano lessons. Afternoons, some fun time with the kids—crafts, movies, games, laundry.

Sunday, rest time, movies at the theater, folding laundry, picnic or we go fishing in the summer. During winter, DH and the kids ski while I sit in the lodge and type (I hate downhill skiing).

  3. Sounds like a pretty scheduled life! I have crazy cat too. She is hopeless, if I accidentally leave the bathroom door open a crack she pushes it open and walks in like she owns the place (ok, she always walks like she owns the place...but, still). Lol. Cats and closed doors are something else! They're too cute though, so it's ok... :D

    Great guest post! >.<

  4. I had to laugh about the cats - My dog does the same thing. Any time she decides she wants attention she'll start pawing at my computer or stand as close as she can to me in front of a book I'm trying to read. She hates it when the computer (or a book) gets more attention than her!

  12. I enjoyed the post by Ednah Walters about her writing, what she wrote about her cats I loved, and was laughing because I can relate. Everytime me and my husband sit on the couch to look at stuff on our laptop our one cat sees this as an invitation to come up and curl across the keyboard of the laptop. We try to push him off but the only place he goes is half on keyboard, half on our lap so still cant comfortably try to surf the web, our cats are so spoiled.
