Since she remains a full-time caregiver for an autistic son, you can usually find Tammy working at home, where she spends a lot of time not completing her numerous home improvement projects, because she’s writing or helping other author friends promote their books on twitter.

Interview Excerpt

Next: Emergence is my third Tales of the Dragonfly Novel. This is the story of Lucy Callahan, who was kidnapped and assaulted in In Tandem. The members of the human trafficking ring who were responsible for capturing her have remained at-large. It’s nearly a year later, and Lucy’s still having troubles recovering from her ordeal, when she realizes she’s being stalked by the man who raped her…

Social media has made a HUGE impact on my life. I’m beginning to use Facebook a lot more now, but I spend a lot of time at twitter. Two and a half years ago, after spending a few months there, I didn’t particularly see how it would be helpful. By then I had a decent following, and spent most of my time chatting with authors and friends I’d made.

But I really wasn’t selling many books. One day I just decided to switch up my tweeting entirely and began doing shout outs for authors and organizations, by encouraging participation. It’s a little different now…

Great covers: I’ve actually been working with three different cover designers. But my go to person has always been Adriana Hanganu of AdipixDesign.com. Not only is she a lovely person to work with, but she’s become a good friend.

Short story: I’d NEVER written a novella or short story before I wrote Two Hearts Surrendered for the Magical Weddings Anthology! (not counting high school and college, of course) Kind of crazy-isn’t it, considering all the opportunities writing this one story has created for me: Two Hearts Unspoken, for Mother’s Day Magic, and Two Hearts Undone, for Annie Acorn’s 2016 Romance Anthology, as well as being asked to write two other novellas for anthologies which will be coming out next year.

Author bundles: The romance bundle for A Touch of Passion is comprised with full-length novels. When my dear friend Uvi Poznansky invited me into the group, I immediately said yes. She is the most amazing organizer I’ve ever met when it comes to putting together an anthology, and setting up promotions and Facebook events, and she’s very talented graphic designer as well.

Free books: Actually, I’ve only given away one of my own books for free, and that was two and a half years ago. That Unforgettable Kiss did make it into the top ten for Saga Fiction, which was great, since it’s a huge category. My books began to sell regularly afterward.

Author Description:
C. Michael Bennis is bilingual and lives in Tucson, Arizona as a former advertising and toy industry executive. He is the author of three best selling novels: Dangerous and Desirable (Oct.19, 2013), Signs of Destiny (2012) and Rules of Engagement (2009), and he is currently editing his fourth novel between speaking engagements.

The glistening razor like actions of this narrative cut across unexpected consequences. Julio’s exploits are legendary. It is almost as if this former champion boxer can draw and fire his weapon before an adversary’s brain registers the movement. He has one weakness: he cannot refuse helping vulnerable, innocuous victims. It is a carry over from when his survivor Jewish parents were killed in a train accident and he left the orphanage to live on the streets of Buenos Aires, an eight-year old with a dog for his only friend. Ironically, his combat skills draw the attention of an ambitious female war correspondent that seeks to discover his true identity. The hunter becomes the hunted when her article is published in a revealing expose. She believes Julio Navarro’s true identity will win her international recognition, but in fact it might only make her dead as Julio Navarro goes on the lam and Ziv fears the worst for this incredible man. Suspense Romance. Setting: New York City, Madrid, Culiacán, and Mazatlán, Mexico.

Author Description:
Uvi Poznansky is a bestseller, award-winning author, poet and artist. Her boxed set, A TOUCH OF PASSION, has just become the 2016 WINNER of The Romance Reviews Readers’ Choice Awards.

She earned her B. A. in Architecture and Town Planning from the Technion in Haifa, Israel. During her studies and in the years immediately following her graduation, she practiced with an innovative Architectural firm, taking a major part in the large-scale project, ‘Home for the Soldier’; a controversial design that sparked fierce public debate.

At the age of 25 Uvi moved to Troy, N.Y. with her husband and two children. Before long, she received a Fellowship grant and a Teaching Assistantship from the Architecture department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where she guided teams in a variety of design projects; and where she earned her M.A. in Architecture. Then, taking a sharp turn in her education, she earned her M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Michigan.

During the years she spent in advancing her career–first as an architect, and later as a software engineer, software team leader, software manager and a software consultant (with an emphasis on user interface for medical instruments devices)–she wrote and painted constantly, and exhibited in Israel and California. In addition, she taught art appreciation classes. Her versatile body of work can be seen online at uviart.com. It includes bronze and ceramic sculptures, oil and watercolor paintings, charcoal, pen and pencil drawings, and mixed media.

Uvi won great acclaim for Apart From Love (which includes two novels–My Own Voice and The White Piano–woven together) and for her romance novel, The Music of Us. Her poetry book, Home, is in tribute to her father. Her collection of dark tales, Twisted, and her Historical Fiction book, A Favorite Son, are both new age, biblically inspired books. Rise to Power (volume I) and A Peek at Bathsheba (volume II) and The Edge of Revolt (volume III of her trilogy The David Chronicles) have been enthusiastically embraced by lovers of historical fiction. In addition, Uvi published two children books, Jess and Wiggle and Now I Am Paper. For each one of these books, she created an animation video (find them on YouTube and on her Goodreads page.)

From the Author
The jewel you see glowing in the ring in my old authors photo isn’t really a jewel at all. It is the crystallized tear of a real dragon. In my novel “The Royal Dragoneers” you might find the moment where this wonderfully magical teardrop fell from a green dragons eye. It hardened on its way down to land in a mess of troll corpses that the dragon was laying on.

My grandfather died before I was born, but the ring was given to me by my mother, after my grandmother recently died. My grandfather had apparently won it in a poker game near the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma sometime in the early 1900’s.

It has been a boon, the magic of the teardrop, for it brought you here to me didn’t it? Now treat yourself to something fantastic and try out the free sample of one of my novels. I hope you enjoy the journey. It will be spectacular. Thanks M.R. Mathias
