Book Signing

Hello to All:

I’m back from the cool country and ready to work. Today I formatted and printed a flyer for my first book signing. I am going to  put it up on all the mail boxes in the neighborhood tomorrow morning while I am out for my five-mile run.

Where:     Dog-Eared Pages (www.dogearedpagesusedbooks.com)

16428 N. 32nd St. Ste. 111

Phoenix, Az 85032

602-283-5423

When:     Sunday, August 12th, 2012 between 1:00pm and 3:00pm.

Today I also went to Staples and formatted my first business cards. It was a real hoot and a lot easier than I thought it would be. It turned out wonderful and even has books on it.

My book: Parasite, can be purchased at Amazon.com as a print or kindle.

I must add that coming home was a bit of a problem: Our air-conditioner fried itself and we had to get a new one installed. Guess I’m just lucky it didn’t burn the house down. The whole wiring harness was fried.

We are going back up north this Thursday. I find that I get a lot of writing done there mostly because we don’t have internet or phone service. It does take a bit of getting used to. We tried bike riding up there but the roads are dirt and you always have drivers who want to go fast and blow the dust into your face. I decided it was safer to stay home and write.

I’ve got over 60,000 words on my new book: Echoes of Evil.  It is a real horror. Talking about horror I finally figured out my brand. It is: RED-EYED HORROR IN A B. A. COLE NOVEL

Since I seem to always be writing horror I thought it was a good brand.

Anyway, back to Echoes of Evil. I have an editor who is interested in it so I thought I would finish it before doing the second book in the trilogy of Parasite. I am going to try–no– not try, DO! I will finish and publish the second and third books in the Parasite series before the end of 2013.

Hope whoever reads this blog will find the time to write me a note and say hello.

Best Regards,

B. A. Cole

Parasite by B. A. Cole

Hello Once More:

It is June 4th and in the Vally of the Sun in Arizona that means HOT! It also means shorts, bathing suits, swimming and time to head NORTH to the cool country. I will be working on the second book of my Parasite series while staying in an RV surrounded by beautiful green Pine trees. Thankfully my husband is a saint and we get along well in close quarters. We both love to fish and in the winter we visit the snow and hunt Elk.

I don’t know when I will be able to blog on the site again as we don’t have internet at the RV. I have to impose on a friend and I’m not much on imposing. Hopefully we will soon decide on either Dish or Direct and have our own internet and cable. I do miss watching CSI and Law and Order.

So, untill next time I hope you all stay safe and strive to be happy. We only get one life; we might as well smile.

Best Regards,

B. A. Cole

Vos (Valley of the Sun Writers) Meeting

My writer’s meeting last night was fun and informative. Our guest speaker, Kris Tualla, was fantastic. She talked on Branding, the visual and verbal attribute that makes people connect you with your work. For example, one of our members writes about winged vampires. So a good brand for her would be something like: Winged men who bite. I haven’t thought of a good brand for myself yet. Not that I’ve had much time to just sit and think. I get up at 4:30 A.M. and go for a long run along the canal and when I get home I write for six or seven hours. After that I go for my evening run. I turned sixty-two last month and one of my dreams has always been to run a marathon. I am now training for the P.F. Chang’s Rock and Roll Marathon being held in January of 2012 between downtown Phoenix and Tempe. I want to do it before I turn another year older. I’m not going for speed, I just want to finish in the time alloted. I’m extremely excited about it.

I also want to get my second book: Parasite: The Recovery, completed and published before that time so ‘busy’ is the only thing I know these days. I couldn’t accomplish all that I do if it weren’t for my wonderful husband, Danne. He helps with the house, meals, and grandchildren. It is amazing how far he’s come since he broke both his feet about six months ago. He always tells me I’m an angel, but I’m not; he is the angel. I like to say that he walked on water next to our Lord. But in reply he says, “I was standing on your shoulders.” All I know is that our marriage of almost thirty-three years has to be heaven. We have a bond that will last until we are both in heaven holding hands. I wish everyone could find a man like my husband. But enough about that.

Back to the meeting last night. If anyone is interested in writing or is already writing and doesn’t know where to go from there, think about joining our group. We meet once per month on the second Tuesday of the month at Iron Works Restaurant. For more information contact Donna Warner, our membership director at jpwldnw@aol.com. You can come to a meeting twice without joining if you just want to do a test drive and see what we’re all about. We would love to have you visit us.

Well, time is running so I need to get back to my writing. Hope you will decide to leave a blog on my site. I promise to write back.

     It’s a new month so it’s time for me to put up a new post.

     I’ve been working hard on book II of my Pestilence trilogy: Pestilence: The Recovery. The SWE gang are still causing trouble, Ellen and Rodger are having their first argument, their family is growing, the city of Phoenix is starting to shine, and they continue to find survivors in the area. The book is fast paced with a lot of gun-play, emotional strife, life-saving, and fear of what the future holds for the survivors.

     The main characters continue to grow; they are always willing to put their lives on-the-line for the rest of humanity. With more and more survivors depending on them for simple survival items such as food and water and with their own supplies dwindling they must push even harder to capture the gang with their cannibal ways, and to teach the city survivors to learn how to farm, learn new technical and jobbing abilities, to co-exist as neighbors  and friends in their newly constructed social environment, and how to protect themselves and their neighborhoods from the child-stealing gangs.

New book is underway

Hello to all:

Book two of my series: Parasite is more than 40,000 words and moving along quickly. The title will be: Parasite: The Recovery. After the plague, the main character, Rodger Fields, starts working in down town Phoenix, AZ to feed and again give the people a sense of humanity. There is a gang called The Southwest Eaters (SWE) who has been stealing young children and after torturing the kids they put them on a spit and roast them for food. Rodger and his hand-schooled army go after them. I hope you will buy my first book and then look for my second. The third and last book in the series is titled:Parasite: The New Government. It will have a lot to say about getting and keeping the money-grubbing politicians out of government. You will simply love what the new president does to turn our country around and to make it once again the most powerful, prosperous, God-fearing country in the world.

Please feel free to leave a coment on this site as I love to hear from my family, friends, and readers.

I also understand that I have a fan that has started a fan club for me. She read my book proof and declared “She is a genius and I can’t wait to read her next book!” While I don’t think of myself as a genius, I do think my book, Parasite, is a great read and every person who has read it says “It plays like a movie in my head while I’m reading it.” So, read it yourself and then tell me what you think.

With best regards,

B. A. Cole

Parasite by B.A. Cole

This is a new writer with the voice of Steven King and the storytelling force of Dean Koontz.  She makes monsters, evil spirits, and the greedy government all come to life as characters all striving to exist. If you like King, Koontz, and Grisham, you will love B.A.  Cole’s new horror: Parasite.
