"Reckless Beginnings" Journey

Book launch buzz – A week of interviews

Book launch buzz - A week of interviews

Creating a Book Launch Buzz is not easy

The clock continues to tick. Counting down the seconds, minutes, hours and days until release day is finally here. Yes, October 4th is the magic day. By the time this goes live, we will be at fifteen days until that anticipated day is finally upon us. It will be the day my book, Reckless Beginnings will finally be available to purchase.  Wow! I can’t believe it. Can you?

Preparing for the launch and bringing awareness of the event has not been easy. It has involved numerous emails to bloggers, newspapers, podcast and TV shows. Sending out a press release to various target audiences. Booking a virtual book tour. (Due to begin October 1st and run for one month.) Organize book review tours. (due to begin, October 27th.) Plan a book signing event. (This will be at the Frazier Park library, Saturday, October 13th;  3:00 – 5:00 pm.)  It has been an exhausting ordeal, but each day results from my efforts are beginning to trickle in.

My First Podcast Interview

Book launch buzz - A week of interviews

I had my first podcast interview with The Thrillers & Mystery Podcast. I was somewhat nervous in the beginning. But the host was wonderful and eased me into the interview and made feel extremely comfortable. It went longer than I had anticipated, about twenty-five minutes, but I’m quite pleased with it. I didn’t feel rushed and got to say everything that I had wanted to say. You can listen to the entire interview below.

Interview with Voyage LA Magazine

I was contacted by Voyage LA Magazine last month and asked if I would like to do an interview. It was a written interview which was nice because I knew all the questions up front and there were no hidden surprises. I spent a few days, taking my time and thinking about my answers. The interview went live earlier this week. You can read the full interview by clicking on the image.

Upcoming Interviews

I have also been contacted by FOX 58 BAKERSFIELD NEWS to appear on the show. A date has yet to be set. But as soon as I have it, I will post it to the locals, so they can hopefully tune in.

HOMETOWN STATION AM radio 1220 of Santa Clarita has invited me to be a guest on the show. I will be appearing live on October 9th at 8:40 am.

A Newbie to Interviews

Book launch buzz - A week of interviews

Before writing my book Reckless Beginnings, being interviewed about anything had never crossed my mind. My lifestyle didn’t require it. Now all of a sudden it has become a necessity. It’s an important method to reach hundreds, sometimes thousands of people and spread the word about my work. How quickly one’s life can change.

Like anything in life, the more you do something, the easier it becomes. I’m finding this with interviews. The first one I did, I was a nervous wreck, I felt I stumbled my words and even though I said a lot, I wasn’t saying what I had rehearsed before the interview. It’s quite a learning experience and one has to stay in tune with their mind and nerves and don’t let your nervousness run the show. With practice, you’ll begin to notice habits of nervous energy that need to be controlled. For me, it’s shifting in my seat, unable to sit still or tapping my fingers on the table subconsciously. Because of these habits that I’m unaware of at the time, I now sit on my hands while being interviewed. It works!

I will continue to pitch to the media even when the book is out. Promoting the book will never end. I have only just begun 🙂

If you know of any media outlets, (Podcasts, radio, tv, magazines, or newspapers) that may be interested in hearing about my book please send or post me a link and I will defiantly contact them.

Book Review The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth L. Silver

Book Review The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth L. Silver

Our book club at the local library just finished reading The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth L. Silver and as always I like to share our review and thoughts with you.

About the Author

Elizabeth Silver is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, the MA program in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia in England, and Temple University Beasley School of Law/ Elizabeth has taught English as a second language in Costa Rica, writing and literature at Drexel University and St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia , and worked as an attorney in California and Texas. Born and raised in New Orleans and Dallas, she currently lives in Los Angeles with her family.

The Synopsis of The Execution of Noa P. Singleton

Noa P. Singleton never spoke a word in her own defense throughout a brief trial that ended with a jury finding her guilty of first-degree murder. Ten years later, having accepted her fate, she sits on death row in a maximum-security penitentiary, just six months away from her execution date.

Meanwhile, Marlene Dixon, a high-powered Philadelphia attorney who is also the mother of the woman Noa was imprisoned for killing. She claims to have changed her mind about the death penalty and will do everything in her considerable power to convince the governor to commute Noa’s sentence to life in prison, in return for the one thing Noa can trade: her story. Marlene Continue reading “Book Review The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth L. Silver”

The story behind my book – RECKLESS BEGINNINGS

The story behind my book - RECKLESS BEGINNINGS

Feeling the emotions of writing my book

The story behind the story

Launch day, (October 4th) is fast approaching. I can’t believe it’s only three weeks away.  It’s hard to fathom sometimes, that a story I’ve created, babied and protected, will soon be available for the world to see.  As nervous as I am, I have to say, I’m also extremely proud of myself and I wish my parents were here to witness this huge milestone in my life.

When I started this blog, (fourteen months ago. (Has it really been that long?) I wrote an article titled; It takes courage to publish your book.  It was written, soon after I had signed the contract with my publisher and suddenly everything seemed so surreal. I am feeling the words I wrote even more so today. There are so many emotions that go into writing a book and this truly puts it all into perspective.

What inspired me to write Reckless Beginnings

The story behind my book - RECKLESS BEGINNINGS

Over the past couple of months, I’ve done a number of interviews on podcasts, websites and book blogs. The most common question was; What inspired me to write the book? A question I’m sure I’ll be asked, at future events. Then it occurred to me that I’ve not discussed this topic on my own site. So I think it’s about time.

Reckless Beginnings is women’s fiction based on True events that have happened in my life. Tammy Mellows, (the main character) is me. I wanted it to read like a story and not a memoir, (personal choice,) therefore, names, places and some facts about certain events have been altered.

I developed a passion for writing at the early age of fourteen. I think having an author for a father had something to do with it. It was around this time, one of my older sisters ran away and couldn’t be found. Unable to search for her, I became frustrated and began writing in a journal to gather my thoughts. My book begins with the disappearance of my sibling.

The story behind my book - RECKLESS BEGINNINGS

A few years later and with my sister still missing, chaos began to erupt in my own life.  I was on a path of making hideous choices and in denial because I wanted the white picket fence and the perfect American family life and ignored any signs that may disrupt that dream.

I allowed my life to be dictated by a heroin addict, the father of my child.  Believing that his needs were more important than mine, I got swallowed up in his lifestyle, losing my sense of direction, courage, and identity. Throughout the chaos, I continued to write in my journals.

During that time, I searched for books written by other women that found themselves in the same predicament as myself but came up short.  I only discovered “How to” books, but they were not the voices I wanted to hear. I needed to know how they coped.  What did they do? I wondered what their everyday lives were like; I yearned for some sort of connection with someone.  I had so many unanswered questions.

I had an idea

That was when the seed was planted for my debut novel, Reckless Beginnings. But it didn’t happen right away. I tucked it away and continued to struggle with the battles in my life.

Twenty years later I still had not written the book, but the thought never left me. When my father suddenly passed away in 2010 and a year later I was diagnosed with breast cancer I began to think seriously about the book and began writing the outline. Eight years later it’s finally going to be published. (Phew.)

The story behind my book - RECKLESS BEGINNINGS

Writing it twenty plus years later was extremely difficult. It didn’t occur to me that I would have to revisit such a dark time in my life and allow all the emotions I felt back then to resurface, in order for it to show in my writing. At times it became unbearable and I had to walk away, regroup and attempt certain scenes a few days later or sometimes weeks later.

So why did I put myself through such pain?

While writing the story I gave myself the title; The Silent and Forgotten One and soon realized, anyone who is involved with an addict becomes such a person. You may ask, Why? It’s because over time we allow our lives to be consumed by the addiction. We become a shadow, believing their needs are more important than ours. we become afraid to speak, stand up for ourselves or make any kind of decisions to better our lives. It’s a lonely place and we only feel safe with ourselves and our own thoughts. We lead a double life, letting those on the outside believe everything in our lives is a bed of roses and yet in reality, behind closed doors we are living a nightmare.

When I couldn’t find any books written by others living such a life, I felt they should be heard and one should be written. I wanted to show the flipside of addiction. How it effects the significant other of the addict. Back then I was a victim, I now call myself a survivor.

I needed to dig deeper

I also needed to understand myself during that time. Why did I put up with the abuse, keep silent for so long and not leave right away?  Most of it was because of fear but much of it had to do with denial and wanting what most normal families had. Writing the book helped me unravel all of that and I’m hoping it will help others come to terms with their situation and listen to a voice who has been there and find the courage to turn their lives around.

So there you have it. I hope this brings you some insight into the background of my book. Even though it was hard to write at times, overall I’ve enjoyed the journey and I hope you will enjoy the book.

I’m a Luster Lexicon Winner

Cover Reveal for Novel Reckless Beginnings

A few months ago Luster Lexicon ran a contest for their Writer’s Spectacle. A place where they feature eight winning authors on their site for a month. I decided to give it a go and submitted myself as a contender. A few weeks later I received the first round of detailed questions, submitted my answers and was elated a week later when I was informed that I would be moving onto the next round. Again I answered more questions and submitted my answers.  A month went by without hearing nothing. Then over the past weekend, I was told I was one of the eight winners and I would be featured on their site.

Debut Novel Reckless Beginnings Press Releases

The release date for Reckless Beginnings by Tina Hogan Grant is now October 4th, 2018. All press releases regarding this event can be found here.

PR #1 Released – 6/12/18

Author Focuses on the families of Addicts

Frazier Park CA – Author Tina Hogan Grant’s debut novel “Reckless Beginnings” to be released October 4th, 2018, reveals what it’s like to be living with an addict.

Women’s Fiction, based on true events, Hogan Grant shows us how these family members of addicts have become the silent and forgotten ones.  

In the media today, we hear how drug and opioid addiction continues to spiral out of control and how drug-related deaths are at an all-time high. But we never hear about the spouses, partners, or other family members of addicts and how their lives have been affected, Hogan Grant explains.

Written from the author’s own experience, Hogan Grant puts the reader into the shoes of the main character, Tammy Mellows. A woman shadowed by her boyfriend, Steven who is also the father of her child and struggling with heroin addiction. Eventually, Tammy loses her identity as Steven’s addiction spirals out of control.

Like Tammy in my book and myself who lived with an addict, so many women live in fear every day. Each day is a fight for survival. Normality doesn’t exist. As the addiction intensifies, so does the violence and abuse, Hogan Grant says.

“Reckless Beginnings,” tells one woman’s story. How she found her strength and took back her life when she realized she didn’t have to settle and had choices.

Review – Readers’ Favorite – 5 stars “Reckless Beginnings by Tina Hogan Grant is engaging and riveting, a well-written story injected with a lot of realism and pathos. Told in a strong and mellifluous tone, this is a story about family and a woman’s search to make sense out of the chaos of her life. The theme of family stands out in the narrative and the author does an incredible job in exploring the conflict within the family context. The characters are well-imagined and developed with skill. Tammy is young and naïve when we meet her, but as she evolves through the story, some of her fantasies begin to fall away as she faces the crude reality of life. Reckless Beginnings demonstrates a great character development curve and readers will be pulled in by the emotional intensity of the story. Tina Hogan Grant has a great sense of storytelling and she succeeds in keeping readers engaged through each page of her gripping story.”

Twenty-five years in the making; Grant’s novel, Women’s fiction, based on true events, shows the flip side of addiction. Focusing on the families and loved ones of addicts and how they become The Silent and Forgotten Ones.

Written from the author’s own experience, Grant explains; even though these events took place decades ago, today drug and opioid addiction continues to spiral out of control and is at an all-time high. Heroin usage has hit a record high because it’s much cheaper than prescription drugs and can be easily bought on the streets.

We hear about these numbers all the time, but we never hear about the loved ones of addicts and how their lives have been affected. Every day is a fight for survival. Normality doesn’t exist. As the addiction intensifies, so does the abuse and violence.

Grant’s novel, RECKLESS BEGINNINGS is one woman’s story, (Tammy Mellows) trying to make sense of the chaos surrounding her life and fighting to gain it back. Her journey shows that anyone in these situations has choices and that they don’t have to settle.

Grant, commercial fisherwoman turned author was born in England and came to the States in 1979. After moving to California, she spent ten years fishing off the southern coast of California with her husband Gordon. After retiring from fishing, they moved to Frazier Park in 2003 and spent the next ten years building their dream home, doing most of the work themselves.

Grant is currently working on a sequel, titled BETTER ENDINGS.

"Reckless Beginnings" Journey

Are you like Tammy Mellows? Did you move to another country?

Are you like Tammy Mellows? Did you move to another Country?

Tammy Mellows is the main character in my debut novel “Reckless Beginnings.” Due to be launched this summer. At the young age of seventeen, she leaves her own country, England to move to the United States. Leaving the securities of her home, job, family, friends, and neighbors behind. Are you like Tammy Mellows? Did you move to another country?

While writing the story, I asked myself, why does someone move to another country? What’s so important to them, that they’re willing to leave so much behind?  If you’re wondering why Tammy did? Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out. 🙂

The book is fiction based on actual events. Tammy Mellow’s character is based on me and yes I left England to move to America. But again you will have to read the book to find out why. 🙂

What motivates a person to make such a big move

Are you like Tammy Mellows? Did you move to another Country?

Moving to a new country is a life-changing event. You have to be one hundred percent sure you’re making the right decision. Some of the most common reason for someone wanting to move are:

  • Job/school related
  • Joining a family/loved one
  • Cost of living
  • Better climate
  • Retirement
  • Sparked by a vacation

For those moving abroad because of a new job or attending a school, college or university, it’s probably safe to say, they’d never visited the new country before. But With the offer of a good education or a better paying job, many will sacrifice and take the plunge. Hoping they will like the country they are about to call home.

In many cases, some may have visited their new destination prior and for some reason or another fell in love with it and a desire to move was ignited. Did Tammy Mellows Visit the States before she left England? Was she trying to better her life?  Again, you’ll have to read the book to find out. 🙂

Moving to another country is no easy task

Are you like Tammy Mellows? Did you move to another Country?

Once the decision has been made, that you’re going to take the giant leap and immigrate to a new country, it’s time to start planning for the move. You’ll want to organize the transition so everything goes smoothly. Start planning early and make an extensive list so nothing is forgotten and there are no loose ends. Sometimes a move as large as this can take up to a year to plan in advance.  My character Tammy Mellows had just one week. Why only one week? You know the answer – read the book 🙂

What might be on your list will depend on your current living situations and the reason for the move but here are some things you should be considering:

  • Secure all important documents – Passports, birth certificate, insurance policies, tickets and visa/work permit if needed
  • Will you have health insurance in the new country?
  • Your home – If you own, will you be selling. renting or leaving vacant? What about the utilities?
  • Bank accounts – Will they need to be closed?
  • Vehicles – Are you going to sell them or have them shipped to your new destination. Consider the cost of shipping a car and buying a new/used one.
  • Pets – What are the laws for bringing animals into the country?
  • Furniture – Keep or sell?
  • If you have children – what are your plans for their education?
  • Income – How will you earn a living? Retirement? A secured job? What is the job market like in your field?
  • Once you arrive, where will you be living?
  • Make time to say goodbye to families and friends.

Was Tammy able to accomplish everything on her list? in just one week. Aah,  you’ll just have to read the book. 🙂

Dealing with the emotions of moving

No matter how much you prepare for the transition to a foreign country, you can expect to experience a turmoil of emotions throughout the whole ordeal. From the stress of having everything in order to anxieties and doubts as the departing date becomes closer. You’ll probably be wondering if you’re making the right decision and at times fearful of leaving your home and loved ones behind. You’ll be flooded with memories you want to cherish and take with you as you share your last night with those close to you. How did Tammy spend her last night in England? Was she surrounded by loved ones? You know what I’m going to say – Read the book 🙂

It’s never easy to say goodbye, especially when moving so far away, not knowing when you’ll see friends and family again. Thanks to today’s technology and social media, we’re able to shorten the distance through video chat and texting. Unforchantly the internet wasn’t around when Tammy left 🙁 How did she handle it? If you want to know, I suggest you read the book. 🙂
