Posted in Culture, Empowerment, Entertainment, Fashion, Inspiration, Karynne Summars, Literary Fiction, Mentoring, Non-Fiction with tags , , , , , , , on March 5, 2015 by Karynne Summars

It’s just been a couple of days that I published my drama romance thriller novel Desperate Pursuit in Rio de Janeiro, which was announced today with the following press release,

and I am already working on publishing another book soon. This one is a non-fiction book entitled

Your Image Determines Your Success

Becoming An Amazing Person Everybody Wants To Know And Keep In Their Life

Tosca Bregenz 2008 - Version 2

This book is designed to suggest ways for image and personal development to let you streamline your life and do amazing things. It will provide basic realistic advice without hype and “over promises”. Rather it will depend on you to implement the suggested ways into your life and see what happens next. Once you start and see success, you may find that you become addicted to wanting to move onward and upward and hopefully an inspiration for the people around you to also do better in life.

While waiting for the book to be published, I invite you to visit the corresponding

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 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 ( or eBay

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

Her fascination with the American quilt tradition puts this movement to a whole new level of understanding; bringing it forward to our 21st century with a fresh new look through her art and creativity.
