Guiding Council of Myths and Urban Legends

This is my book. It has green on the cover and there is at least one leprechaun in the story.  How very St. Patrick’s Day-ish.  It’s about Myths, Urban Legends and a struggle between the powers of good and evil – sort of.  It’s written for the YA audience, but everyone will enjoy it.  Oh, and it’s only .99 cents.

The “Guiding Council of Myths and Urban Legends” is a fast-paced, clever, and lively reading experience, and I happily endorse it to other readers – Scott A. Story

I liked it so much I started the next book as soon as I finished the first one – Amazon Customer

What an enjoyable, clever book! – Jessica

This was funny as well as suspenseful, and a very good read for the YA – S.L Perrine

This is a fast paced and exciting book…

Indie Author Life and Other Forms of Torture

I too am proud to be an indie author and immensely grateful to my fans (and amazed to this day to think that I have some folks out there that care about my books.)

YA Author Rendezvous

Indie Authors - Young Adult Author RendezvousWritten by K. R. Conway

Last night I had an epiphany.

One would think it would have been obvious to ME for a while now, but it wasn’t.

You see, I am a self-published author, though I refer to myself as an “Indie” mainly because I operate like a business – like a small press. I am also a professional writer, and I don’t say that off the cuff or because I’ve written two novels.

I’m LITERALLY a traditional working writer, so I will admit that gives me a bit of a leg-up in some aspects. And I’ve been a professional writer for nearly two decades – a paid, published, prolific, oh-crap-I’m-on-a-deadline, writer.

Because of my professional background, I WAS a publishing snob – I believed that to be a legitimate success, you needed an editor to praise your work and a Big Six publisher to fork over the dough. I…

Blog Tour

I was interviewed over at Lurking in the Shadows (Seems appropriate for Umbrae). And big thanks to Mike for having me.

Lurking In The Shadows

umbraeblogtourbanner1Today we are happy to be hosting a stop on the Blog Tour to support a great book by a great author.

Umbrae by Debbie Manber Kupfer was released on March 1st, 2017.  It’s the third in the P.A.W.S series, which we’ll get to later on in the interview.  So please give a warm Blog Welcome to Debbie Manber Kupfer!

Welcome Debbie!

Before we get into discussing your books, why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself? What started you writing? How often do you write?

Hello, and thank you so much for inviting me onto your blog. I’m a writer, puzzle maker, mom, cat-lover, and tea-drinker. I grew up in London, spent some time in Israel and somehow ended up in St. Louis, MO. I divide my time between writing fiction and puzzles and hanging out with my kids and my kitty, Miri Billie…

Umbrae Blog Tour

Umbrae Blog Tour – It’s Tuesday in England and Miri is over at Dragons Rule OK. Check it out!

Dragons Rule OK.

I am quite excited about this release because I started reading the series recently and am looking forward to reading the rest of it.

Debbie has kindly interviewed Miri for my blog. Here is the interview.

What do you miss most from when you were young?
Oh lots of things: my cats – Kitty and Susie; my best friend – Jenny; New York City and in particular the Lower East Side where I grew up; and most of all my omama. I think about her every day – the things she taught me, the stories she told. And I also wonder about the stories she didn’t tell. About her early life in Vienna and how she escaped from the Nazis. Maybe one day I’ll be able to piece all that together.

What scares you the most?
That I could lose my new friends here at P.A.W.S. I’d like to…

Step into the Shadows of Umbrae …

Miri’s world at P.A.W.S. in St. Louis is falling apart. First, Danny is accused of stealing her opapa’s charm. But before he can defend himself, he mysteriously disappears. Miri seeks Josh for help and advice, but he too has gone missing.

Then Lilith has a vision – Miri dragged away by wolves. Miri needs answers, answers that she feels sure are hidden in the blank pages of the book of Argentum.

With the help of Lilith, she travels to the ancient city of Safed. There, with the aid of a mystical rabbi and an outspoken werecat, her omama’s story is slowly revealed. And Miri uncovers something else…

Umbrae Blog Tour: Character Interview

My absolute favorite stop on the Umbrae blog tour. An interview with Ian the Chimp. Be sure to look at the fantastic pictures Kayla drew at the bottom of the interview – enjoy!!!

Welcome to Hell Bent

umbraeblogtourbannerBlog Tour Landing Page

((So, to help with this blog tour, I’d volunteered to host a character interview. However, I have a hard time asking questions, myself. So, I got one of my characters to do it. Also, due to my affinity for primates, the character I chose to go with was a chimp named Ian. So without further ado…))

Travis walked through the zoo, his tail flicking lightly behind him. He’d gotten a few weird looks from some of those visiting. It was like they’d never seen a half-monkey guy before. Granted, he took no measures to hide his opposable toes or prehensile tail. He wasn’t even walking on two legs, choosing a gait not unlike that of many primates. He’d stopped off to ask a few of those working there where he could find someone he’d been hoping to speak to. Word had gotten out about there being…
