Giveaway & Author Guest Post with Kate Brady

Remember my post where I reviewed, Where Angels Rest? Well after Kate Brady, the author, speaks her mind, you will have a chance to win a copy. Provided you live in the U.S. that is.
So without further adieu, I give you Kate Brady.


Authors talk about it all the time: “The book under the bed.” And it used to be that when I heard that phrase, I thought these savvy writers had a stash of manuscripts at the ready and whenever their publisher wanted something new, they dug one out and sent it in.

I suppose it might work that way for some writers, but apparently I’m not one of them. Having just had my first experience pulling a book from under the bed, I can tell you, it wasn’t quick and it wasn’t easy. It was, however, a whole lot of fun!

I first wrote WHERE ANGELS REST during that period of time when I was waiting for my agent to call me with the good news about my first manuscript, ONE SCREAM AWAY. I sort of didn’t know what to do with myself… Write a sequel? Start something new? Change genres? Give up? And my agent said, “Write another book, just like ONE SCREAM AWAY.” I secretly doubted the wisdom of that—after all, ONE SCREAM AWAY hadn’t sold. But I did it, anyway, because I knew my agent was All Things Wise. I forced myself to accept the fact that my first hero, Neil Sheridan, would never see the light of day, and neither would his brother, for whom I had such dreams. Abandoning them, I set out to create a new hero from a new family with a new story – but in the same vein as ONE SCREAM AWAY.

Then: The magic phone call. ONE SCREAM AWAY sold, along with an unplanned sequel. Suddenly, the Sheridan brothers were alive and well again, and needing attention.

WHERE ANGELS REST went under the bed.

It languished there for three years until I had the occasion to start a new series of books. It was kind of a scary thing, going under the bed, but I was curious as to whether or not the first draft of ANGELS could serve as the bones of a new book. I found that I still loved the hero in ANGELS—Nick Mann—but I tore apart most everything else. I changed the heroine’s issue and goals, changed the plot, changed the murder scheme, and believe it or not, I even changed who the villain was.

Only the hero—a small-town sheriff with big-time dreams—remained the same. And now, the Mann family has become the source for my next three books, starting with WHERE ANGELS REST.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading WHERE ANGELS REST as much as I enjoyed writing it – both times!

Happy reading!

Kate Brady

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
