Tracy Krauss is launching her book WIND OVER MARSHDALE on Tuesday, Oct. 16. Full of intrigue, romance, and plenty of surprises, see what’s hiding just beneath the surface in this seemingly peaceful town.

It’s that easy! You’ll be directed to your free gifts and all you have to do is choose which ones you want.


About the book:

Marshdale. Just a small farming community where nothing special happens.  A perfect place to start over… or get lost. There is definitely more to this prairie town than meets the eye. Once the meeting place of aboriginal tribes for miles around, some say the land itself was cursed because of the people’s sin. But its history goes farther back than even indigenous oral history can trace and there is still a direct descendant who has been handed the truth, like it or not. Exactly what ties does the land have to the medicine of the ancients? Is it cursed, or is it all superstition?

Wind Over Marshdale is the story of the struggles within a small prairie town when hidden evil and ancient medicine resurface. Caught in the crossfire, new teacher Rachel Bosworth finds herself in love with two men at once. First, there is Thomas Lone Wolf, a Cree man whose blood lines run back to the days of ancient medicine but who has chosen to live as a Christian and faces prejudice from every side as he tries to expose the truth. Then there is Con McKinley, local farmer who has to face some demons of his own. Add to the mix a wayward minister seeking anonymity in the obscurity of the town; eccentric twin sisters – one heavily involved in the occult and the other a fundamentalist zealot; and a host of other ‘characters’ whose lives weave together unexpectedly for the final climax. This suspenseful story is one of human frailty - prejudice, cowardice, jealousy, and greed – magnified by powerful spiritual forces that have remained hidden for centuries, only to be broken in triumph by grace.

BE GOOD AND WISE


BE GOOD AND WISE

Good things can be bad
if you look at the dark side.



Bad things can be good

if you look at the bright side.


Never exploit any situation for your own good

Knowing that good and bad is subjective

Things can be easily manipulated

If you desire to do for your sole advantage.



However, you will be appreciated

if you choose to be honest and sincere.



To be really good

is to be wise.

FRIENDSHIP


FRIENDSHIP is not about who you have
known for the longest time.

It 's about who came
and never left you alone

when you needed someone
the most at that particular time

He may not be
your fix for all your troubles

But definitely will not leave you alone
He is the one

who will struggle
and share

every moment with more
meaningful and memorable experience

ASHLIEGH WOLFGANG - AN INTERVIEW



About the author:

 Ashliegh Wolfgang first gained notoriety as founding member and vocalist for National recording artists "The Orphan Punks".

The Devil's Serum is his first foray into fiction writing, a love he has had behind the scenes for decades. Ashliegh claims writing influences from historical authors such Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft to contemporary authors such as Anne Rice and Clive Barker.

 

Ashliegh currently lives in the suburbs of Chicago, IL (USA) with his wife Heather and children Addison and Samantha.

Now, onto the interview.

When did you begin to write?

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, whether it was poetry or lyrics in my former life as a musician. I’ve always loved words, I’ve been writing in story form for more than a decade.


When did you first discover that you were a writer?

I think I’ve always viewed myself as a writer. I think people have an image of themselves that may or may not be what others perceive.  Even before I was ever content to release anything, I’ve always had notebooks of ideas and phrases, and just anything that I thought I may want to revisit later.

How much did you write before you were published?

A lot! I actually had finished two novels of biblical proportions that I wasn’t happy with, and eventually tossed out. It may have been the silliest thing I’ve ever done. I’m my worst critic and it took me years before I was willing to trust other people’s opinions in regards to my writing. I know that I will continue to edit and re-write until a story is pried from my hands if I don’t have someone else read it, fairly early on.

What is your favorite part of writing?

I’m a reader just like everyone else. I love having the stories develop on the page. I get excited and even surprised at what comes next. Sometimes I find that I can’t sleep if I’m in the middle of a book because I need to know what is going to happen next, just as I would if I were reading someone else’s book.

So far what is your worst criticism/attacks, and how you overcome it?

 I’ve received some less than stellar reviews as I’m sure all writers experience. It’s painful when you’ve put part of yourself out there, and you feel like you’ve been rejected. I believe it’s just like anything else in life, you have to do things that make you happy and in the process you’ll make others happy as well…just not everyone. I think all writers have to realize that they are never going to appeal to everyone at the same time, so there is no reason to ever try. Appreciate the ones that love what you do, and ignore the ones that don’t, although it is often easier said than done.


What is the accomplishment that you are most proud of?

It’s a cliché I know, but I’m most proud of my children and their accomplishments than of anything I could ever achieve in my professional life. 

Wow! The next book sounds really good too. Are you planning on writing more in the years to come?
I just released The Devil’s Apprentice this week, which is the third book in the Ramblings of the Damned Novella Series. I currently plan to have two more installments released before the end of the year. Beyond that series, I have several partials and even more ideas that I expect will be published at some point.

What does your writing process look like?  

It’s fairly messy. I have character notes scribbled on everything…backs of receipts, unopened mail, etc.  I imagine if you could look inside my head it would be very similar looking.

How do you come up with title of your books?

With this series I’ve been very conscious of having similar titles and similar covers, so it’s easy for readers to know the books are related. The Devil’s Serum, The Devil’s Folly, The Devil’s Apprentice…I’ve kind of locked myself into a theme with these titles so it actually makes it fairly easy to title them. So far I have never had a title until I was ready to publish. I write the story first and then find a title that fits, I think if I had a title first it may influence or restrict my writing.

Can you enlighten us a little more about your books?
The Ramblings of the Damned series is a collection of journals from Christian Laurent. Christian was born in 1870 in the American Midwest and at age 40 he finds an ornate silver flask and drinks the mysterious contents. He wakes up, several days later to discover that the drink has given him immortality. So it’s a retelling of the love, loss, confusion, and eventually understanding of a man destined to outlive virtually everyone that he comes into contact with.

Is there anything else you would like your readers to pay special attention in regards to your book, which you have not mentioned above?

While all of the books are centered around the same characters and the stories are cohesive, each book focuses on different points of importance to the protagonist and therefore I think the feel of the books change dramatically. The Devil’s Serum (Book One) is absolutely a love story more than anything, while The Devil’s Folly (Book Two) has substantially more action and adventure. The Devil’s Apprentice (Book Three) combines all of the previous elements while refining the overall story and purpose.

When do you plan to publish your book 4, if applicable?

I hope to publish Book Four (currently untitled) of the Series in early November at the latest.
How many volume of books for the above series ?

I currently have a five part story arch planned but I can’t say for certain that book five will be the last we see of the characters.

Tell us your guided principle that governs your life? How you cultivate these values?
Stay positive. It feel so much better to be appreciative for the things that go your way than to be discouraged by the things that don’t. Everyone knows someone that causes the lights to dim when they walk into the room because of the permanent cloud that they allow to follow them around. Sadly that feeling can be contagious and before long that person is wondering why everything seems so doom and gloom. A smile can be every bit as contagious and before you know it, everything seems a little brighter.

Do you have any advice for writers looking to get published?
Write, write, and write…if you believe that your writing is good enough then who’s to say it’s not. The most famous authors in the world have been rejected multiple times and received scathing reviews. The only person that can stop you from being successful…is you.

 Anything else you want to say?

Thanks so much for the opportunity to be interviewed and allowing me to introduce my books. I hope your readers will consider giving them a read, and if they enjoy them I hope they’ll tell anyone that will listen.

Thank again for joining us today. Let us wish him a fulfilling day everyday.
