Dancing in the Kitchen with Geri G. Taylor

Posted in Award winning books, Contemporary Romance, Entertainment, Karynne Summars, Literary Fiction with tags , , , , on January 26, 2015 by Karynne Summars

Meet Geri G. Taylor

Geri is an artist, a writer, a photographer, an actress and a wonderful human being. She is also a runner-up in the 2014 MARSocial Author-of-the-Year contest with her novel The Kitchen Dance.

The Kitchen Dance is about a successful interior designer who lived her life choreographed by her loved ones until a tragedy forces her to learn her own steps.

In her blog ‘The Delete Key’ Geri says this about herself: “If I were an animal, I’d be a sponge. I love to suck in all things creative and artistically expressive.”

What a statement. I can see why she would say that. She for sure is a prolific creator. I asked her a couple of questions. Here’s what else she had to say:

Tell us a bit about your background and writing journey. 

GT: I barely passed grammar in high school, but I was praised by my teachers for my creativity. I still have trouble with punctuation. Thank goodness for the Internet. When in doubt…

The Kitchen Dance is the journey of a novel-turned screenplay-turned novel-and maybe one day, a screenplay again! I enjoy writing screenplays, and they make an outline for a novel. Right now, I am using the other screenplays I started as the storyline for my novels.

How did you come up with the stories you wrote?

GT: I am always being inspired by some strange things like an image, an object, an old house, an article of clothing, etc.  An image of a spearfishing photograph inspired me to write The Dark House. I can just slip off into la-la land with ideas for characters and their situations inspired by something I read in the news. I wish I were four people…we could get a lot of work done! Either that, or we’d argue about who is going to get off the sofa and answer the phone!

If there was a book about you what would the title be and why?

GT: My Decent into Madness is No Longer Amusing

If you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

GT: Stephen King…I mean, why not? He’s forever experimenting and tweaking his writing style and, because of that, he’s even written some stinkers. And for THAT, I really admire him.  I just read Mr. Mercedes https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1162674593 and if I had not seen his name on the cover, I’d sworn someone else wrote it! I liked it, and I’m excited about this series.

What would you do if you won a large amount of money?

GT: Pay someone to finish the renovation on my camp house so I can go to the lake and actually RELAX! and WRITE!  But that should not take too much money. If I had enough left over, I’d open a creative center that taught classes in all things creative!

When not writing, how do you like to spend your time? 

GT: I actually like to work on my lake house. it is a character in a novel all its own. I like to do a lot of creative things. I putter around in my studio and occasionally I actually finish something. Just before Halloween, I created a Zombie Baby, and that I’m rather proud of.

I hope to make a couple more to sell on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/Santas2Sell?ref=hdr_shop_menu) or eBay http://www.ebay.com/sch/santas2sell/m.html?item=181640417540&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

Thank you, Geri, and much success with all your creative endeavors.

Trick or Treat

image-11-version-43.jpg

Rather than offering candy this Halloween, I thought it might be a nice treat, and much healthier, to give readers free chapters of my romance drama thriller Desperate Pursuit in Venice.

Watch the video here to find out where you can read the free chapters. So far I have posted chapters one to three but as a special treat for Halloween, I will be posting two more chapters on October 31, 2014.

Take a virtual trip with me to Italy and follow my protagonist Kataryna Taylor into a world of glamour, love, passion, obsession, secrets and danger. Expect everything in this seductive and emotional novel. Then get ready for the thrilling sequel Desperate Pursuit in Rio de Janeiro. Find out what Kataryna, Luca, Francesco and Roberto are up against next.

And now it is my turn to say: Trick or Treat. For my treat, I would like to ask you to post a review if you have read and enjoyed Desperate Pursuit in Venice. Thank you in advance.

And here is some scary stuff to look forward to: DiSTurBeD Movie coming in 2015 to disturb you. Meanwhile watch the trailer here to see what you can expect when that movie comes out.

Happy Halloween. Be safe!

Captivating Italian Vacations

Posted in Award winning books, Travel with tags , , , , , , on April 18, 2014 by Karynne Summars

Arena-Verona_Foto-Ennevi

There are a few spots in the world which have captivated me to the extent that they are worth a mention in my recently published novel Desperate Pursuit in Venice. One of these spots is the Arena di Verona with its breathtaking outdoor opera performances and surrounding enchanting areas like Lake Garda, a popular vacation spot for the entire family.

The Denver Post’s Culturs Magazine just published a story based on my travel experiences which also mentions Desperate Pursuit in Venice. Here is the link to the Culturs Magazine. Needless to say, they also have other exciting content, so please visit the site soon. Check out their Global Launch Party taking place this summer and vote for your favorite city. I voted for New York and Singapore.

http://culturs.guru/2014/04/outdoor-opera-verona-italy/

Enjoy your virtual trip to Italy via Culturs Magazine. Maybe it will inspire you to actually book your next trip to that area. I can highly recommend it.

See you in Verona!

Ciao,

Karynne
