The BunsyDawg Diary

The BunsyDawg Christmas interviews: Teresa Geering

It was late Sunday afternoon, and I was reclining on a buttercup supping mead from an acorn cup. My best friend, the lovely elf Tizzlewen, had popped by to tell me that there was a massive rabbit outside the faery grotto called BunsyDawg and he wanted to interview me.
Now Tizzlewen is a very naughty elf, which means we go together like red wine and a glass. I didn’t believe him at first but I couldn’t deny that there were at least two big rabbits off to the left of where I was reclining. Mind you, the fact that there were two was a bit worrying but I put that down to the excess of mead I had consumed. So a decision had to be made: I could either spend an hour or two in the company of Tizzlewen doing what elves and faeries usually do, or chat to a rabbit (or two) which by all accounts had large flopsy ears and was named DunsyBwag or something similar.
Well I rarely get the chance to talk to rabbits (singular or plural) these days, so it was obvious that he would win out. I would make it up to Tizzlewen later.
My next problem being, do I change into a rabbit so as to be on an even footing? After all, he would have the four rabbit’s feet for good luck compared to my two.

Also could I do any rabbit jokes like …?
What do you get if you cross rabbits and termites?    
Bugs bunnies.

Why is a bunny the luckiest animal in the world?    
Because it has four rabbits' feet.

What do you call 20 rabbits moving backwards?    
A receding hare line.

What do rabbits use to keep their fur in place?    
Hare-spray…
I decided to change into human form but a smaller version. I changed into my newest (well, my only other) dress which fitted me quite well and went back out to meet this rabbit fella.

I introduced myself and shook his foot hoping that some luck would rub off on me. Actually I stroked his furry back as well because his fur was so soft and he seemed to enjoy it.  I then offered him some clover to chew (I know my manners), which he loved.

He retrieved a note book and pencil from a pocket somewhere in his fur. Then he popped on a pair of owl-shaped glasses which rested on his flopsy ears and proceeded to interview me.

[Good intro, Tee. I think you managed to describe our setup in real time - BunsyDawg]



Tee, you are renowned for being quite the nicest living author (I hope these questions get to you in time). Is this natural, or do you have a particularly gifted media coach whose name you would be willing to share with some of the other authors (I could provide you with a list in order of priority).
Aw shucks, Bunsy. Is it ok if I call you Bunsy? You say the loveliest things and your little nose twitches up and down when you talk. Or is it called a snout, I wonder?

[No, a human nose is called a 'snout', at least one some people, Tee. We have noses - BunsyDawg]

Yes, I’m still in the land of the living and I really enjoy living in the faerie kingdom. Of course I’m so lovely and yes I do have a media agent down here. His name is Keth, which means 'wind' but we won’t go into that [Not downwind of him, we won't - BunsyDawg]. When I started to write books, he was assigned to me by the faery queen but sadly I have corrupted him and he’s a naughty elf now. I never know what sort of tabloid or magazine he will put me in. So maybe I really shouldn’t share him with your authors.



I know you like your garden and staring at a Shasta Lilly there gave you the idea for your series, but what about the fairies in your books? Have you seen them in your garden too or are they only in your head?
Well now, Bunsy old chap, I do have a garden down here which I tend on a regular basis. Quite often the other faeries come to visit me and some even help with the gardening. This means I can put my tiny little feet up and rest my wings. It’s very tiring flapping one’s wings all the time to keep us hovering.

If I have the odd tipple of mead or wine I do wonder if I’m seeing the real thing or if they are in fact a figment of my imagination. It depends if I drink more than my quota of acorn cups. 

[Nods and winks knowingly].

[Oh Gawd - BunsyDawg]



Your series is based around a character called Erasmus who is a bad-tempered, time-warped, sex pest. Why did you do that? Why does he do that?
Well now, between you and me, there are many different types of elves and goblins. Some are good elves who do the policing of the kingdom and then there are the bad elves who could probably give the goblins a run for their money. One of the elves, who should remain nameless, is called Hobso. He’s constantly bad tempered. One minute he’s in front of you nattering thirteen to the dozen and then he’ll see a pretty faerie and disappear before your eyes. I can usually track him down though by the giggling faeries. Hobso is not only bad tempered he’s also absolutely sex mad. Consequently I decided to base my main character on him and turn him into a time traveller.



The next book is to be called ''Merlin', which eponymously (now that is a big word for a rabbit) refers to a character who is turned into a cat every time he crosses Erasmus. Why a cat? Worse, why a talking cat? Don't we have enough problems with cats without their becoming lippy?
It’s like this my furry little friend. 

[Adjusts Bunsy’s glasses for him, which have slipped down onto his nose] 
Down here in the faerie grotto we love cats see…

[Looks aggressive and glares at BunsyDawg]
Most of them have the power of speech if they want to use it. In the new book, called 'Merlin', yes he gets far lippier and did I say that I love cats? 
[Purrs happily]
[Not me - BunsyDawg]
That Erasmus upsets everyone. Is it any wonder that cats find the need to talk? Will it be to his advantage? Well, we shall see ...



You are also famous for your love of red wine. When you have had your first couple of gulps, do you regard your wine glass as being a quarter full or three-quarters empty?
I didn’t realise that my reputation had spread from the world of Fae, Bunsy Dawg. I suppose I should be flattered.

[Tinkling of faerie laughter emits from Tee]
Well now, I would suggest that it’s three-quarters empty and in need of a refill. Wouldn’t you? Or maybe you just lap at a saucer of water. I don’t know.
[A vertical, suction-operated feeding device, actually - BunsyDawg]



In a socially awkward moment, you mentioned on FB that you had been fantasizing about your books being published by a rabbit. Is this what is known as  'Alice through the looking glass syndrome' or are we back to the earlier question about the fairies?
Oh my! That sounds like I must have had too much mead. It’s one of the reasons that I don’t drink it very often. It goes straight to the curls on my head and makes my coes turl up…
[Speech gets slurred at the thought of it and hiccups loudly due to alcohol withdrawal symptoms]
   
I have fallen through many ‘Alice type’ holes and also fallen in the ponds in the grotto as well. So, technically, I suppose I have an 'Alice through the looking glas' syndrome.
[Laughs and burbs while nodding head]

I do enjoy being in my fuzzy world, though.



Finally, you volunteer part-time for the Kent police force, handling incoming phone calls. Shouldn't you be writing a murder mystery?
Well now Dunsy Bwag … I have!  Sort of. Kinda.

It’s a short story entitled 'A Russian gift of Love' about a female DCI from Special Branch whose alias was a published writer.

A Russian dissident/sleeper whose alias is a Fire Fighter is given the mission to kill her for something she did in the past. However they fall in love and he has difficulty carrying out the mission ...
A brief excerpt from one of the chapters in the book:
… Nickoli Morozov (Nick to his friends) was not on this occasion going to work; instead he walked into an unobtrusive building and took the lift up to the top floor. He had been summoned urgently by his superior. At least six years had passed since the last time he had been here. He had been well and truly hauled over the coals. Siberia had been threatened if he slipped up again. 

Sweating at the mere thought, he took out his pass card and swiped it, allowing him entrance into the sealed office. The room was like any other run-of-the-mill office, with filing cabinets, a desk, and seating for visitors. Behind the desk at the far end of the room sat his boss, Grigori Karpenco. He lived up to his name - ever watchful. Uneasy in his presence, Nickoli tried to show an outer calm.

“So you have made contact with this woman, Victoria Houseman?” Karpenco asked before he was even halfway to the desk.

“Yes, Comrade, I have moved into the cottage next door, and made contact. My established cover has always been as a fire fighter, and there is no reason for her to think anything different,” he said, hoping to sound convincing. 

“Our research shows that she is extremely shrewd and is highly respected by her team. Do not under estimate her, Nickoli, and remember this: we are watching you also. You have been here ten years establishing your identity while under deep cover. Your mission has not changed. You will establish a relationship with this woman. Make love to her if necessary but do whatever it takes and then you will eliminate her. Is that understood?”

“Yes, Comrade. Completely understood.”

“You will not report back here until the job is done. Now go …. and, Nickoli, remember: you have been a sleeper in this country for a long time. I wouldn’t want to hear of any mixed loyalties.”

“Comrade, I have not forgotten what this woman has done. The mission will be completed as directed.”

Leaving the office he was glad to be on the other side of the door and he realised he was now sweating profusely. He hoped it hadn’t been too obvious. Grigori Karpenco had a reputation of ruthlessness and Nickoli was going to play this one by the book. 

The next step was to get closer to Victoria Houseman. Well, Christmas was coming up, and he knew she was single. He had made it his job to find out. Luckily for him, the cottage next to her had come up for rent.

Pressing an intercom button, Grigori Karpenco summoned his secretary, a thin looking man with a permanent scared look on his face. Grigori’s preference was for male staff; he had no interest in women now. His former wife had done her duty by him and produced a son. These days his lovers were men of his choosing.

“Here is the folder. Return it and ensure he is watched closely from now on.”

“Yes, Comrade General.”

“Oh, and Yegor …”

“Yes Comrade General”

With a lecherous smile, “Tonight and don’t be late!”

“Yes, Comrade General” He said quietly, as he left the room.

Yegor’s shoulders seemed to shrink as he made for the door. The only sound was the hideous laughter he left behind. Yegor hated the man but if he didn’t perform to the General’s liking, Siberia was apparently his other choice. What was it with this man and Siberia? Well, he had no intention of facing the cold Siberian front now, or at any other time in the future, so he set the wheels in motion for Nickoli to be watched day and night….

Now what was he going to wear tonight to please the General. He mentally went through his secret wardrobe of dressing up apparel and smiled. Yes, just the thing he thought …
  

'Revenge is Double Edged' is another short story about a police chief on secondment to the Caribbean. While there, he marries his long term girlfriend in a romantic wedding on the beach. During the reception he feels restless. Was it anything to do with the drugs baron from the next island that he’d arrested? (He has promised his revenge).
When his beautiful new wife gets shot, how will the police chief take his revenge? Who will be the target? Who will pull the trigger? Will revenge be a double-edged sword?
There are several other short stories that I have written while lounging on my buttercup, including a vampire one and some fantasy.  They are secreted away in my toadstool.
[Replacing his notebook, pencil and glasses in his fur pocket, BunsyDawg hops off after thanking Tee for the interview. Tee slowly wanders back to her toadstool with thoughts of settling down with a nice acorn cup of mead]

YAY Halloween was exciting !!!

Book sales are going well at the moment. During August and September 84 books were purchased and 1878 were downloaded as freebies.
My publisher Taylor Street Books of San Francisco ..... TOPS :-)
My reader fan base ......... TOPS :-)

Can I say a massive and humongous thank you to everyone who either purchased or downloaded them.
I've got loads of chores to do before I get back to writing about Merlin and his medieval, raunchy, shenanigans so talk later peeps.

24 Oct 2012

HELLO

I'm still cracking on with the new Erasmus and Shasta. It's almost as if there is someone sitting on my shoulder urging me on.
I've managed 12,000 words so far..... Well there is life to live and contend with in between writing  *sighs*. I would love to sit and write all day but ............ This one is much darker and more raunchy as well. I blame the person sitting on my shoulder lol
Anyways this is just an update. Sooo laters peoples.

22 Sep 2012

They're coming back!

For all the fans of Erasmus Shasta and Merlin I am now writing the final book in the series.
 
Yes, I really thought I had finished with Erasmus, because the Eye of Erasmus and Shasta Summer (two books in one) completed the trilogy. Not so it seems, as so many of you have been commenting as follows....

    "Noooo you can't leave it there. We want to know how it all came about initially and how it all ends."

So you will now get your wish as the fourth book is being written at the moment back to back with another more up to date young lady who goes time travelling.

This current book in the series centres more on Merlin and his love of the beautiful Shasta and yes it will be the eternal triangle. It's set in medieval times (sooo much research needed) and is much darker, more sinister, and I have to admit far more raunchy in style. But then I do wonder at times if I'm the one writing it, or the person hovering at my shoulder and whispering in my ear.

A heinous cackle can be heard as he leaves my shoulder and disappears into the ethos leaving a trail of smoke behind him......

A Writer in a Million

Every so often we come across an author that writes with not only a feel good factor about their plot lines and main characters, but also has that extra special bit of je ne sais quoi. That extra gifted *IT* factor. So it is with Jessica Degarmo who has the ability to turn her hand to a range of writing genre. I have read virtually all of Jess's books and only escaping time has stopped me catching up with the rest of them.

Therefore I became really angry recently when rough and downright shoddy reviews came in for her slightly different book entitled SIX WEEKS. The storyline is about the decisions of a young girl, concerning abortion. A difficult choice I guess at any time. The main gripe of the shoddy reviews being the ending which was left open ended as to which door she entered to make her choice. A clinic or a 'refuge'. Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course. The point of this ending? It enabled the reader to mull over their own thoughts perhaps as to what the ending should be.......

I caught up with Jess recently and did an interview. We were both in a light hearted mood so I hope you enjoy it......

A Girly Chat With Jessica Degarmo



It was time for me to go visit Jess and I was excited. The sky was a beautiful deep blue, the sun was shining and fluffy white clouds were just waiting for me to soar high into the skies. 
I opened the broom cupboard and there nestling in the corner was my super charged,super slick, Nimbus 9 broomstick all covered in cobwebs. It hasn't been used for a while and it's always been my main source of travel when I take off to interview my guests. 
I gave it a good clean, popped on my hooded long black cloak and took to the skies to meet Jessica Degarmo on the other side of that great pond which divides us. I had a good tail wind and made good time. I was so thirsty though when I landed. However Jess was waiting with my favourite brew which I downed in one.
After much giggling we settled down and I began my interview.

Question1. Firstly Jess please introduce us to the fabulous author Jessica Degarmo and maybe you could also include your hobbies and interests.

(JLD) Hi, Tee! Nice of you to drop in! Well, I’m Jessica L. Degarmo, but please call me Jess. I’m a wife, a mommy, an insurance agent, a former country music DJ, the lead singer in a classic rock band, and a recent college graduate. Oh, and I write a bit, too.

Question2.  What about the books you have written? Tell us about the books without giving away any spoilers of course. I’m sitting here with bated breath :-)

(JLD) Well, I’ve written six books. My first, How to Meet a Guy at the Supermarket is a romantic comedy. Hooking Up was my first foray into a more literary romance (I guess) and Decisions is a straight up romance. Six Weeks is a true work of literary fiction, and The Storm Within and Historically Yours are the first and second, respectively, in my romance series, Johns Creek Second Chances. I guess you could say I’ve dabbled in a bunch of genres, and I’m not done exploring. I’ll have a paranormal book out by year’s end as well as a sequel to one of my other books (but you’ll have to wait and see to find out which one!) and I have a psychological thriller simmering on my cauldron.

Question3.  If you had the opportunity to co-write a book with a famous author from any time gone by, who would you choose and would you like to tell us why please.

(JLD) I’d love to work with LaVyrle Spencer. She’s the queen of lovely, meaningful, realistic romance, and I admire her greatly. She’s retired now, which bums me out, but I still consider her work to be a yardstick by which all other romances are measured.

Question4. (a) So then, you are given a unique opportunity to have just one of your books turned into a movie. Now which one do you feel would bring in the most revenue?

(JLD) Hmmm...sex sells, right? I honestly have no idea! The book I’d probably like turned into a movie the most would be Supermarket, as I pictured it in my head like a movie while I was writing it. I’d love Drew Barrymore to be my Quinn. Women like chick-flicks, and Supermarket is a chick-flick on paper. Chick-lit, for sure!

Question4 (b) Now, just who are you going to choose for the leading roles? This movie of course will outshine the 50 Shades trilogy. So keep that in mind.

(JLD) Well, I already billed Drew Barrymore for Quinn, so now let’s find some men... Hmmm....that hunk from Under The Tuscan Sun, the Italian one she finds when searching for the chandelier parts, he’s Trevor, definitely. As far as Mitch goes, maybe Tom Cruise? And Jason would have to be played by Matthew Mcconaughey. Ooh, this is fun! Do I get to interview the guys privately? I think, as the author, I should...

Well .....??? Maybe then if you take me along with you. You would definitely need a chaperone and I could ogle from behind my shades and large floppy sunhat. NOT that that would make me conspicuous of course.
It’s been hilarious talking to you Jess and we must do this again soon. Let me know what websites/blogs you want to mention and of course include links to your books.

(JLD) Thank you, lovely Tee! I’d love your readers to check out my website at www.jessicadegarmo.com. As far as my books go, you can find them all here: www.amazon.com/author/jessicadegarmo

So leaving Jess to muse over her leading men for the film shoot I then got back onto my trusty Nimbus and headed back home after making a detour around the milky way – just because I could :-)

(JLD) Sweep, er, fly safely, Tee! Hugs!

Product Details



Whilst on holiday recently I whipped out my kindle and re read Dudes Down Under by my good friend Suzannah Burke. You may remember she wrote Empty Chairs and Faint Echoes of Laughter which told of her life from childhood. I cried through Empty Chairs because of the injustice of her young childhood - prostituted by her mother at four years old. However I laughed again 'til tears ran down my face at Dudes Down Under.

Here is part of my review ....

Sun sea sex euthopia and a talking croc

Every so often as reviewers we pick up a book and just know from the first chapter the huge potential of having a block buster in our hands. I cried tears in bucket loads at this writers two autobiographies and I cried tears of laughter all the way through Dudes Down Under. How versatile can a writer get but Suzannah Burke does it seamlessly.
Take a private, tropical island set up to pander to every whim, needed by the elite of the world. They are happy to pay whatever it costs for their luxurious privacy. (I could almost smell the lush tropical foliage through the pages.) Add the staff who will go to the ends of the earth to support the owner in her endeavours. Then add Cyril the crocodile, who seems to be able to read human thoughts and has been raised by humans since he was an egg. Bring in Skeet (short for mosquito) who panders to every whim of Cyril, including reading him a bedtime story, plying him with beer and Jack Daniels if he's really lucky. Dressing him in his favourite colour clothes, including sun hat and shirt with Velcro for ease of dressing. Then bring in a love match for him called Sadie(he's at that adolescent age and needs a mate)

This idyll is running just perfect and even the guests enter into the spirit of things with Cyril once they get used to him. He's a crocodile that constantly burps and farts, takes a teddy to bed with him, and his favourite music is Some Enchanted Evening. Have you ever seen a crocodile swaying in time and in rhythm? Well Cyril does and with style as well.

Then the cyclone strikes !! No one is too concerned as contingency plans are in place, BUT some guests are missing and suddenly everything starts to change....
How could you not be enchanted by Cyril? So here's your chance and this is where you can find him on Amazon UK

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_10?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=dudes+down+under&sprefix=dudes+down%2Cstripbooks%2C148&rh=n%3A266239%2Ck%3Adudes+down+under&ajr=0

SIMON SWIFT SELLS BOOKS IN BRIGHTON

Not satisfied with selling endless books in the North of England, Simon Swift decided to hit the South Coast and made a pit stop in Brighton Sussex. As it was only a couple of hours drive from my home town I went down to support him. Whilst Simon was downstairs in the foyer signing and selling books I hurried up to the floor above which housed the books on Crime and managed to hand out quite a few of his Black Shadows information cards. They were eagerly grabbed.

This is the great new cover of Black Shadows











Simon Swift and Teresa Geering International Best Selling Authors















 Watch this space for the Casablanca Case soon to be released which is another Errol Black escapade. I have already read and reviewed it and it is equally as good as Black Shadows. Once you've made a friend of Errol Black you have a friend for life.

Night at the Movies: 20 second movie pitch - Erasmus, Shasta and Merlin...

Night at the Movies: 20 second movie pitch - Erasmus, Shasta and Merlin...: When the mercurial Erasmus sees Shasta in a vision across time, he knows he has to have her. He will still have to work out how to reach her, but once he does he is not going to let her go, not even if he has to change the past, the present and the future to achieve his goal.

Based on the 'Erasmus, Shasta and Merlin' trilogy by Teresa Geering.

My Lossie

Twenty years ago I took on a rescue cat that was ten months old and badly mistreated. Within a couple of months I discovered I was allergic to cats but I had taken him for the length of his life come whatever. He had had a rough trot at the beginning and needed some security.
Over the years  he would sit in front of me and we would have many conversations about his daily adventures (he being a Siamese cross black domestic that never stop talking.)
Over the last few months he started to get some 'qwerky habits' and I realised he had feline senior dementia. Eventually I bit the bullet and phoned the vet for an appointment for euthanasia explaining my concerns. I was given an evening appointment for last Monday. It was the longest day I can remember and I was a total wreck by four o'clock. My son and his 'missus' took me, and on the way he wee'd in his basket and as he was on my lap it soaked me through to the car seat. My son laughingly said "He is sending you a last defiant gesture mum" which made me smile. The first one all day. I walked into the vet looking like I had been in the saddle for a week. Fortunately the vets had no pets or owners in there at the time.
We were taken through to the vet straight away. Taking one experienced look at Lossie she said "Oh poppet you're in you're own little world aren't you" whilst assuring me he was in no pain. I cuddled him tightly to me as his little spirit was finally laid to rest.
He is going to be buried in my back garden along with my son's cat (five years old that passed on just before Christmas 2011), a robin, a squirrel, and a young fox. No wonder I have so many crows in my garden.
Rest in peace dear Lossie.

Here's one I made earlier

Lily Byrne has a reader of the month feature and January was my month.
I decided to read Mrs. Jones by the fabulous Bab's Morton.
Here are my thoughts and my review.
Oh! .... Lily also found a more updated photo of me :-)

Tee's latest thoughts:
I have finally finished Mrs. Jones by B. A. Morton and I thoroughly enjoyed every page.
Here is my review:

Detective Connell was the officer assigned to probably what would turn out to be just another hit and run case. However he knew the minute the door was answered he was wrong on all counts. The girl was a looker for a start and on questioning her his gut instinct told him she was hiding something, and he was right.
Mrs Jones is more than fast paced. It leaves you breathless with all the many twists and turns in the storyline. I thought I had it all worked out only to be wrong footed yet again by the superb writing of Babs Morton.
Highly Recommended.
