The Experiment, a new novel from the imaginations of Cindy C Bennett, Sherry Gammon, and Jeffery Moore!

Final Cover small

BLURB:

Time is running out for the Collaborative’s oppressive rule of the remote world Senca One. The government attempts to suppress the escalating riots, even while seeking to further their experiments. When their parents are taken, triplets Juliet, Cilla, and Emiah Tripp set out to locate them, and soon discover they are at the center of a hunt to capture them.

Evading the Collaborative across Senca One’s harsh terrain, they’re confronted with the trials of survival. They also discover something that changes the very core of their reality: they’re morphs. Struggling to adapt to the strange new ability, they question what they really are . . . and why. Are the rumors of experiments done on children true? Did their scientist parents have anything to do with it?

Their quest brings them to the capitol city of Brighton, which is on the verge of revolt. While searching for information about their parents, the Tripps align themselves with the very people fueling the rebellion. They unwittingly spark the revolution they want no part of and discover something more dangerous than they suspected.

Cindy C BennettandJeffery Moore

BLURB:

When sixteen year old Olivia Adams wakes from a horrible car accident that killed her parents, she knows she’s something different. Olivia died, and now the soul inhabiting her body needs to find out
who – and what – she is. A glimpse of a world called Razari burning is the only 
clue to her previous existence—a tragic memory, sparking events that endanger the people helping her.

Jacobi McKenzie has lived in Crescent, Montana for more years than he can remember, even though he’s only seventeen. He’s been waiting, but for what he isn’t sure. Jacobi recognizes Olivia for what she is before she’s even aware of it herself and the effect she has on him threatens to expose his true identity–a thing he’s worked hard to conceal.

They come together in an explosion of emotion that neither of them is supposed to feel. As Jacobi fights for Olivia’s life, protecting her from those who would use her for their own selfish purposes, together they unravel the mystery surrounding the destruction of their race.

Why Do You Write? Guest blog with Author Jeffery Moore

5 Nov

I think it’s time for me to introduce my fellow critique partners or peeps as I like to call them.

With two of them I’ve been for almost two years, Cindy C Bennett and Jeffery Moore. We met during an online class and stayed in contact even after. We began exchanging chapters for reviews and eight books later (between the three of us) we are still together. A few months ago we added a third member, Sherry Gammon, who has one book published and a second one soon to be released.

I decided to interview Jeff first since he’s the only man in our group (not sure how he manages to handle three chicks J) and today’s prompt is “Why do you write?”

Why do I write?

This is a core question for all writers and each writer will have a different response. The more you try to answer this question the deeper into your psyche you may go…maybe even places you don’t want to visit. For instance, what does it say about a person who is writing for money? Who is writing for fame? Is writing to fill a void in their life?

Following is a quick write-up about me. Obviously, I didn’t explore that deeply, fearing release of a horror show that is best kept locked up.

I consider myself a calm, easygoing person by nature. I’m not outgoing and have only a few friends outside of our little writing group. I keep to myself and pay my bills. I know this sounds like a profile for a serial killer. I am unemotional to the point of wondering if I am a borderline sociopath, but I’m not cold or distant. I am affectionate to my family members. I take pleasure in helping others and being generous…sometime I even hold a door open for other people…only sometimes.

Many times I wonder what makes me this way. Nurture versus nature? My brother is the opposite from me. He surrounds himself with many friends and is very outgoing. He has a jovial nature about him I envy.

I doubt my personality is what makes me want to write. I seriously doubt this a template for a writer.

So why do I write? And given today’s environment, why would anyone want to write? I guess that’s why they call it zeal.

One thing that may help me answer this question is that I am passionate to a fault. When there is something I want to do or want to achieve, it becomes an obsession. I don’t know where this comes from. I don’t recall my mother or father having such a strong compulsion toward something that everything around them—people and environment—became a cardboard backdrop to life. This is what happens to me when I’m “in the zone”. God bless Cathy for loving me for only love can tolerate my selfishness when I’m in the zone. I’m certain I appear as a manikin to her, and I may as well be for all the attention I give her.

I think writing exaggerates that zeal…that drive and desire in me, but this is only one element of the formula. The second part is my near rabid imagination. Hell, I’ll see a perfume add in one of Cathy’s magazines and begin to formulate a story around it. Who knew the thing that hampered my education would become so rewarding later in life. Third is motivation, which is probably the most difficult part of the formula to define. The motivation has to come from somewhere. Motivation is not finding, but making the time to put pen to paper…to edit and try to better learn the craft…to scrap, rewrite, scrap, rewrite until I feel it’s the best I can create. I only wish I had combined my predisposition to zeal, imagination, and motivation earlier in life.

Yet, this does not explain why I write. This may give insight to what makes me write, but not why.

It wasn’t until I was on a long deployment when in the military that I actually began writing. I wrote hundreds of little snippets of stories in verse. Being separated from my family for eighteen months was a trial for both me and my family. It was and has been the hardest thing I’ve ever endured. The loneliness crushed me so much so that I resigned my commission and began a new career. That’s how my zeal began…borne from deprivation of those I love. From there, it just seemed to evolve into wanting to become a better writer. I attribute the full manifestation of my zeal and passion for writing to the first story I formulated as a result of those verse snippets—an epic adventure—and thought it was good.
