Sunday Spotlight: WR101 – Patricia Josephine

sunday spotlightI’m a little late with my Sunday Spotlight, at least in UK time. But it’s still Sunday in other parts of the world so that counts, right? Right.

This week at Writing Room 101 I shared Patricia Josephine’s latest release – Gabriel, which is book four in the Path of Angels series. I also shared a review of Gabriel.

PatriciaLynneAuthorPicPatricia Josephine never set out to become a writer. In fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was all about art. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head. That was the start of it and she hasn’t regretted a moment. She writes young adult under the name Patricia Lynne.

Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow, and an obsession with Doctor Who.






Path of Angels:

GabrielPoACoverThe end is in sight.

To stop Uriel from freeing Lucifer, Gabriel and his brothers must fall and go to Hell. It is a sacrifice Gabriel is not entirely ready to make. Will he fight alongside his brothers or forge his own path? There is only one choice.

Alexander doesn’t want to help Uriel nor does he trust him, but the angel has promised him a better life. He swore to protect Charlie, and he’ll do whatever it takes. When he meets the archangels and learns the depth of Uriel’s lies, he understands the true meaning of sacrifice. If there’s any hope of stopping Lucifer from being freed, Alexander, Charlie, Zephyr and Lake will have to get to Hell and help Gabriel and his brothers in the fight against Uriel.

The path is finally ending, but the price may be too high.

Also on WR101 this week, you will find a cover reveal of Alicia by Gloria Weber.

As this post is about spotlighting, it’s not too much of a divergence to shine a light on the winners of the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards 2015. I met some wonderful people on Saturday, and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I was nervous when I arrived,  but Sacha, the organiser of this fabulous event, gave me a big hug and I immediately felt at home. I’d already discussed my anxiety with Hugh, who took me under his wing – that’s the kind of man he is; warm, welcoming and generous with his time. He has a wonderful sense of humour, and together he and Geoff made me completely forget the nerves. It really was lovely to meet Suzie, Helen, Lucy, Marje, Esther, and Sue. So many wonderful people; my only regret is that I didn’t get the chance to completely catch up with everyone. I did get the opportunity to meet Conny in person, who I’ve shared many a chat with over at Weekend Coffee Share, which was a lovely treat.

So, check out Sacha’s blog, and her terrific committee members; Hugh, Geoff and Ali.

Here are the awards and the winners:

Services to Bloggers – Suzie Speaks

Funniest Blogger – Lucy (Blonde Write More)

Inspirational Blogger – Suzie Speaks

Informative Blogger – Sarah Hardy (By the Letter Book Reviews)

Best Dressed – Concierge Librarian

Best Overall Blog – Chris Graham (aka The Story Reading Ape)

Congratulations to all the winners.

Thanks for stopping by.



Sunday Spotlight: WR101 – Celine Jeanjean

sunday spotlightI’ve been spotlighting indie authors on Writing Room 101 for a while now, and whether that is reviews, interviews, cover reveals or guest posts, it’s always a lot of fun. So, to draw attention to the wonderful authors who visit WR101, I decided to create a Sunday Spotlight here on my own blog.

This week Celine Jeanjean stopped by for an interview, and earlier today I posted a review of her novel The Viper and The Urchin.

PhotoCeline Jeanjean is French, grew up in the UK and now lives in Hong Kong. That makes her a tad confused about where she is from. During her time in Asia she’s watched the sun rise over Angkor Wat, lost her shoes in Vietnam, and fallen off a bamboo raft in China.

Celine writes stories that feature quirky characters and misfits, and her books are a mixture of steampunk, fantasy and humour.

To find out more about Celine or just to chat, visit  her on:

viper_promoBeing Damsport’s most elegant assassin is hard work. There’s tailoring to consider, devilish poisons to concoct, secret identities to maintain… But most importantly, Longinus has to keep his fear of blood hidden or his reputation will be ruined. So, when a scrawny urchin girl threatens to expose his phobia unless he teaches her swordsmanship, he has no choice but to comply.

It doesn’t take long for Rory to realise that her new trainer has more eccentricities than she has fleas. But she’ll put up with anything, no matter how frustrating, to become a swordswoman like her childhood hero.

What she’s not prepared for is a copycat assassin who seeks to replace Longinus, and who hires Rory’s old partner in crime to do away with her, as well. Rory and Longinus must set their differences aside and try to work together if they’re to stop the copycat. But darker forces than they realise are at play, and with time running out, the unlikely duo find themselves the last line of defence against a powerful enemy who seeks to bring Damsport to its knees.

You will also find recent reblogs; links to new releases such as Alex Hurst’s D.N.A, an illustrated serial novella; Natacha Guyot’s upcoming Talyn’s Heroic Journey in Farscape, and Nicholas C. Rossis’ Infinite Waters (a collection of ten speculative fiction short stories).

Earlier in the month, Phyllis Moore, author of the Pegasus Colony, stopped by for an interview, and Louise Findlay wrote a guest post (short story).

Thanks for stopping by.


Writing Room 101 Daily Prompt Series – Update

Daily Prompt LogoHi everyone

I hope you enjoyed the special series last month, the 30 Days of September. We’re back to regular daily prompts again in October, with a slight difference. I have created an area on the right hand tool bar, which I will update with a new prompt every day. Those wishing to take part can visit the blog, check out the prompt and link their post to WR101. This just means I’m not bombarding you with posts every day, because it’s getting a little busy over here!

Which is a great segue to my next point! The monthly interviews also have a slightly different format. In October and November I will be hosting a series of tours, release day events, cover reveals, reviews and author interviews. Once an interview has been posted I will add it to the relevant section. There’s also an area, under collaboration, which will list the tours and events taking place so you can catch up at your leisure.

If you have any feedback, suggestions, would like to get involved, or contribute, feel free to drop me an email. You can use the contact form at the top.

Thank you for your patience as the site develops.



cropped-7d2cbcd7249f4f77aca829661e621b5b1.jpgThis area is for those wishing to become members of Writing Room 101. As a member your details will be displayed in a list so that visitors have access to your blog and can learn more about you.

You don’t have to be a contributor, though if you’d like to be, please use my contact form. If you write, read, blog or, like most of us, do all three – then you’re in the right place!

To become a WR101 member, please complete the contact form below. You might also want to use the handy badge I’ve created to display on your blog.
