Lachesis Author Guest Blog: What Inspires Your Writing (Greg Ballan – Science Fiction & Suspense)

Our guest blog today is from Lachesis author Greg Ballan. Greg writes science fiction/suspense for Lachesis. His Hybrid series (Hybrid and Hybrid Forced Vengeance) follows a private investigator with abilities that are decidedly super-human and “other-worldly”. 

Our ongoing topic is: what inspires your writing? Over to you Greg . . .

Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 10.41.24 AMWow, this is a great topic!  It’s fascinating to see how different authors find inspiration, or what they do to get inspired. Inspiration, for me, is a specter that pays a call at 2:30 in the morning, waking me from a dead sleep. It’s a sense of idea and plot so wonderfully deep and concise that it can only come to me early in the morning while my mind isn’t burdened with the thoughts of work, chaos at home or struggling to develop the plot line for my latest WIP. I used to wake up . .  . kick around the inspiration, be amazed at my “Brilliance” and then fall back to sleep convinced I’d remember this stroke of pure genius. When I awoke the next morning the idea was gone as if the same phantom that brought me such inspiration came by and stole it away again. Many a great idea came and went, I’d wake up each morning and my mind would be a blank slate! Now I keep a journal by my nightstand to capture the inspirations and put my whims to paper. THEN I go back to sleep. Several early morning inspirations made their way into Hybrid and  Hybrid Forced Vengeance and my upcoming Lost Sons projects.

Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 10.41.46 AMI’ve had moments when the mental roadblocks and obstacles appear insurmountable. These are the times when I need to seek inspiration.  During these difficult times inspiration is found through intense physical activity. My activity of choice is MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) or boxing. I’ll tape up my hands, put on my gloves and go several rounds on the heavy bag working a scene over and over in my head while throwing punches and kicks into a defenseless mass of ebony canvas. After a good thirty-minute sweat I’ve usually resolved the problem or at least come closer to a workable solution.  If I can’t work around a problem I’ll usually punch and kick my way through it.  When I wrote Hybrid and Hybrid Forced Vengeance, I choreographed all of the fight scenes on the heavy bag.  Each combat scene was played out to make sure the sequences were realistic.  Seeing the sequence in my mind and acting it out against an object really helped me describe the intricacies of each strike and counterstrike and made the actions come alive on paper.  Truth moment . . . in Hybrid, my main character, Erik Knight, executes a series of offensive moves ending with a perfect, airborne, spinning back kick while in heated hand to hand combat.  As I worked through the series of movements leading up to that kick, I leapt, spun in the air and threw my leg around preparing to kick the heavy bag. My approach was too far back; I missed and fell flat on my backside landing on the hard cement floor. After recovering what was left of my dignity and making sure I didn’t need an ambulance, I decided, at 45 years of age, I’d allow myself to just visualize that one move. Those kicks were much easier to do twenty-five years ago.

I’ve also found inspiration in the forest, walking through the dense woodlands.  The entire story of Hybrid was created as I hiked through the Hopedale Town Forest (Hopedale, MA).  Imagination is a powerful tool, especially for a Science Fiction/Suspense writer. Being alone in the woods as the Sun sets, miles away from the nearest road, gets one’s imagination to wandering in dark places.  The result of that hike in the dark was my first novel.  I get a twisted sense of pride when one of my neighbors tells me they won’t run the trails in the Hopedale Forest anymore because they’re convinced one of my alien creatures is lurking out there, waiting to pounce!

Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 10.53.48 AMWhen I’m working on a project, there are several things I need to have on hand to keep the internal creative/inspirational juices flowing. The most important is my Honey Dew iced coffee and a blueberry muffin. There’s an indescribable comfort of sipping on my favorite drink and nibbling on my favorite comfort food as I’m typing away, putting an idea into words.

I’m also a stickler for dialogue . . . I enjoy creating a picture through conversation.  Sometimes it’s better to hear (read) a character’s own words regarding a situation or conflict instead of an author’s description. My favorite author, the late David Eddings, was a master of dialogue. His characters leap off the pages and their conversations can be intense or humorous, conveying more meaningful plot information than any description. Conversation has to be real; the words said have to be believable. I’ve found a great method for realistic dialogue is actually speaking both sides of the conversation aloud, adding the proper tone and emotional aspect to the conversation I’m creating. I quickly discover what lines are good and constructive and which lines need to be reworked or removed. If the conversation sounds real when spoken aloud, then there’s a much better chance a reader will follow the dialogue and mentally process every vocal cadence I’m trying to impart. I’ve often used this technique while driving to work to pass the time, and work through scenes that require intense verbal interaction. What I didn’t realize is that when you drive along the highway and have an animated conversation with yourself, people driving near you tend to notice. I’m often given a wide berth on the road.

I’ve learned a great deal about what inspires my fellow authors and I’m going to adopt Kim Baccellia’s and Alexis D. Craig’s musical inspirations during my next work session and see what amazing things happen!  Maybe one of my fellow authors will pick up some boxing gloves, go for a long hike in a dark forest, or just grab a cup of iced coffee and a warm blueberry muffin as they search for their inner muse.

Greg Ballan is a graduate of Northeastern University holding Bachelor’s degrees in Marketing and Management. He lives in Hopedale, MA with his patient, tolerant and sometimes bewildered wife, Teresa and his three children: Tom, Rachel and Christie. Greg enjoys several outdoor activities such as hiking, archery and shooting. When he’s not working his full time job as a Financial Analyst or getting lost in some unknown woodlands, he’s crunched over his laptop putting his warped imagination into words or penning a column about politics, hunting humor or his latest tale about avoiding house work and yard work.

BLURB:

He’s annoyingly gorgeous, provocative, and fast becoming her best friend. But he also has a secret that makes the little hairs on her arms stand on end…

It wasn’t nicking an expensive watch or diamond bracelet that landed streetwise Jona Montiniere in the clutches of the police. It was a darn sweater. A judge decides that she has to return to her terminally ill mother, who dumped her in an orphanage more than twelve years ago. Worse, for the coming six weeks, she has to do charity work on an estranged aunt’s vineyards in France.

Yeah, right.

Jona is determined to sneak off at the first chance she gets. But then she meets Julian, her mother’s caretaker. Playful, understanding, and sinfully sexy, he’s everything she dreams of—but she’d be damned if she let him know.

So when the first week in her new home is over, Jona is asking herself two things. One, how could it happen that she ended up in Julian’s arms after only three days? And two, how the hell did he awaken her mother from the dead…?

READERS LOVE SUMMER OF MY SECRET ANGEL:

OH. MY. GOSH! this book, I just…I’m at loss for words. I’ve never been so captivated by a book in my life. I read every word slowly making sure I didn’t miss a single detail. I absolutely adore this book. It was so moving, it brought me to such intense tears. The life jona faced, not having all the answers that she deserved to know, to have heartbreak more than once and finally allowed herself to feel; words cannot describe this book. Such a wonderful story. Beautifully written. Beautifully told. Every character is captivating and demands your attention. It leaves you on the edge of your seat, waiting for Jona’s much deserved happy ending. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. I swear you won’t put it down once you’ve started!!

ANGELIC, BUT WITH AN EARTHY TWIST! Jona is a girl who has a world of hurt. She uses her smart tongue to hide her true emotions. Both her tongue and actions get her into a ton of trouble which in the end forces her to deal with something she never wanted anything to do with – her mother. The twist comes with her mother’s “helper” Julian who softens her in a way that she never wanted. The author does a wonderful job of bringing a certain ‘realness’ to the character Jona in all her harsh glory. Julian is what you would expect and then some (don’t want to create spoilers). The love in the novel is both heavenly and earthly all at once! You should read this book. I actually found it quite touching and would read it again. There is some cussing at the start of the novel but that gradually peters out as she undergoes some level of change.

I like this novel so much that I can actually see it as a movie. With the right actors it would be most excellent.

WOW! AMAZING! LOVED IT!!! I didn’t quite know what to expect when I first got this book, but once I started reading it I could NOT put it down. Towards the end though this book definitely yanked more than a few tears from me, which is pretty hard to do. I got this book in the evening and fell asleep reading because I just couldn’t stop reading.

AMAZING! I absolutely love this book. The author made everything seem so real to me. I cried at currant parts and laughed at other. I didn’t want this book to end.

I LOVED IT! Such a lovely story. I could not stop reading. I loved Jona and her sarcastic/snarky personality. I adored Julian and his undying angelic love. Beautiful story full of love, hope, sadness, and just the right amount of sexiness.

ADDICTING! I got this book today and I just finished it! it’s so beautiful it even made me cry. I love this book and I bet you will too.

AUTHOR BIO:

The quick-and-dirty:

I’m a girl with a passion for writing.

The genres you’ll find me hanging out at are contemporary and paranormal YA, but I’m also snooping into some adult paranormal right now. All of them romances…of course.

The nitty-gritty:

I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun.

I grew up in Vienna, not by free will but because my parents decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. I. Hated. The. City. Everything about it. So right after graduation I moved back to Upper Austria, where I settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop.

I’ve been a storyteller all my life. Already in kindergarten, I came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. My teacher would call me a liar. I call it the cornerstone of my writing career.

People always told me you can’t make a living with being an author. So when my first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, I was totally dumbstruck. Took me a while to realize what was happening, LOL.

And the personal stuff:

At the (awesome) age of seventeen, I met the love of my life. But he was a playboy, and I was so not going to be his next trophy. It took him another four years of fighting for me until I finally decided to give that “couple-thing” with him a shot. I’m now married to this man. ;-)

We have an eleven-year-old son, and together we travel a lot…although I sometimes wish the trips were shorter because I can’t wait to get back to my laptop and my many stories. Unless we’re in Disneyland. No stress to go home then…

If you still want to know more about me, my FAQ page is the right address for you. ;-)

SYNOPSIS:
Born in the flames of Heaven’s wrath, he’s all things sinful…and too dangerous to love.

An immortal guardian, Aethan’s walked alone for millennia, trapped in a hell of his own, until a feisty mortal crosses his path—a female he shouldn’t even look at, one who shakes the precarious foundations of all that he is—and one who’s determined to walk the edge of danger.

All her life, Echo Carter wanted “normal,” an impossible feat given that she can see demons. Now she’s determined to hunt down the demonii responsible for the death of her friend—and no man, no matter how sexy, will stop her—until she discovers a horrifying truth about herself, forcing her to turn to Aethan. But when two stubborn wills collide, a dangerous passion ignites…

As evil closes in, will this warrior overcome his darkest fears and claim her as his—or lose her to a far more sinister fate.

AMAZON REVIEWS:

AmyZimmerman: Loved this book! I never wanted it to end!! Definitely one of the best books I have read! A must read!!

obsessive reader: This book was excellent. So refreshing from the usual paranormal everyday formula some authors rush to put out. Bad boys with bad ass powers who are incredibly sexy and all alpha male can only be described as awesome. The females in this book are also not the damsel in distress wait until someone saves me type either. It is so rare to find people of color in these types of books without all the typical stereotypes attached. I loved aethan, echo and all the characters in this book I hope kira will get her a story really soon

eva aldridge: Very, Very good book, I love the paranormal romance, but this was amazing. The characters are unforgettable, handsome, sexy, and oh so bad ass. I’m glad I got to know these characters, they keep you on your toes. This is the first I’ve read by this author but will definitely be reading more.

Amy: Loved this book cannot wait for the others to come out! Tyr’s book I really can’t wait for I was hoping it would be the second book but I look forward to Blaez’s story too. You are an excellent writer and the thing I loved most about your books is that you did not repeat the same things over and over throughout the book. I have read many authors that do that and it really takes away from me wanting to continue reading a book when the author does this. But you every page was something new and exciting and I looked forward to turning the page. Happy writing I look forward to this series!

mlafitte: None- stop action, great storyline, characters are wonderful. Looking forward to the next one!! Thank you, Ms. Hunter for a very entertaining book.

EXCERPT:
SOS. Their code to each other. Sisters of Spirit—one of them needed support. Marina Simms gazed at the email. Confused because it seemed to come from her, though the preview screen indicated they’d all received it. She hit ‘reply all’—with the date and time of the ferry to catch for a quiet weekend getaway. Four friends. They discovered a common bond and were soon awed by the psychic connections that grew between them, a universal thread none of them could ignore. And now, one of them called out to her Sisters.

They met at the dock in the chill May breeze. After a flurry of hugs and kisses, the four women ascended the stairway to the ferry’s open bow deck. They sat huddled together, enjoying the quiet of being together, smiles lighting their faces.

Marina adjusted her large dark sunglasses against the sun’s glare reflecting off the water.
Clara pulled her plaid scarf higher on her neck and tucked a cocoa curl behind her ear, then she hugged Marina close. “I am so happy to be here.”

The thick auburn ponytail that Bryce pulled through the back of a ‘Life is Good’ cap bobbed as she nodded her agreement. “Me too. I need this so badly!”

Anastasia, her wavy blonde hair streaked with a fun splash of teal, laughed. “It’s as if the island knows when we need each other.”

“So you need this, too. I’m not the only one.”

Marina was thankful her dark lenses hid the moisture filling her eyes. SOS. No one fessed up to sending the call, but apparently it came at a good time for all.

SYNOPSIS:
Born in the flames of Heaven’s wrath, he’s all things sinful…and too dangerous to love.

An immortal guardian, Aethan’s walked alone for millennia, trapped in a hell of his own, until a feisty mortal crosses his path—a female he shouldn’t even look at, one who shakes the precarious foundations of all that he is—and one who’s determined to walk the edge of danger.

All her life, Echo Carter wanted “normal,” an impossible feat given that she can see demons. Now she’s determined to hunt down the demonii responsible for the death of her friend—and no man, no matter how sexy, will stop her—until she discovers a horrifying truth about herself, forcing her to turn to Aethan. But when two stubborn wills collide, a dangerous passion ignites…

As evil closes in, will this warrior overcome his darkest fears and claim her as his—or lose her to a far more sinister fate.

AMAZON REVIEWS:

AmyZimmerman: Loved this book! I never wanted it to end!! Definitely one of the best books I have read! A must read!!

obsessive reader: This book was excellent. So refreshing from the usual paranormal everyday formula some authors rush to put out. Bad boys with bad ass powers who are incredibly sexy and all alpha male can only be described as awesome. The females in this book are also not the damsel in distress wait until someone saves me type either. It is so rare to find people of color in these types of books without all the typical stereotypes attached. I loved aethan, echo and all the characters in this book I hope kira will get her a story really soon

eva aldridge: Very, Very good book, I love the paranormal romance, but this was amazing. The characters are unforgettable, handsome, sexy, and oh so bad ass. I’m glad I got to know these characters, they keep you on your toes. This is the first I’ve read by this author but will definitely be reading more.

Amy: Loved this book cannot wait for the others to come out! Tyr’s book I really can’t wait for I was hoping it would be the second book but I look forward to Blaez’s story too. You are an excellent writer and the thing I loved most about your books is that you did not repeat the same things over and over throughout the book. I have read many authors that do that and it really takes away from me wanting to continue reading a book when the author does this. But you every page was something new and exciting and I looked forward to turning the page. Happy writing I look forward to this series!

mlafitte: None- stop action, great storyline, characters are wonderful. Looking forward to the next one!! Thank you, Ms. Hunter for a very entertaining book.

She enjoys brainstorming with her daughter over new ideas and have several book ideas plotted out for the story arc. Now she just wants an extra pair of hands to write, because she complains her brain is like a hive, her characters voices too loud, and they all want out. She’s excited to finally live her dream with the release of her first book.
