    On the Air With Janice Pernell

    in Entertainment

    Janice Pernell is a sought-after developmental, content, and line editor whose skills were discovered by two phenomenal people.  Dr. Dennis Woods (President and CEO of publishing company Life to Legacy, LLC) noticed that as she turned his clients’ audio recordings into typed manuscripts, she edited the material in the process.  He wasted no time opening the door for her to do content edits on the many books he publishes.  A short while later, Janice crossed paths with National Bestselling Author Naleighna Kai, who immediately recognized Janice’s eye for editing.  Through Naleighna Kai’s mentoring, Janice’s editing skills shined even brighter.  Janice edited Naleighna Kai’s novel, Open Door Marriage, which hit national bestselling lists as soon as it was released in 2014.  Naleighna Kai continues to entrust Janice with the task of editing her books and those written by her publishing consulting clients. 


    Janice now edits for several National Bestselling Authors and Independently-published authors.  Some of her editing projects have sold to traditional publishers such as Brown Girls Publishing and Harlequin/Kimani Press.  One editing project became a finalist for the Indie Excellence Award, while others have been picked up by literary agents.  Five of her edited works hit the Top 10 in AALBC's 2014 National Bestseller List.

    Stephanie Bond & the Body Movers in KindleWorlds LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes the magnificent Stephanie Bond. Stephanie Bond was several years into a corporate computer programming career when an instructor in her night school MBA program remarked that she had a flair for writing and encouraged her to submit one of her projects to academic journals. "But," Stephanie says, "all I could think was 'I wonder if I could write a romance novel?'" Bond grew up on a farm in eastern Kentucky where the entertainment choices were few. Luckily, she had a beloved aunt who shared her passion for reading. "When she visited once a year, she brought boxes and boxes of gothic novels by Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney and lush historical romances--I was in heaven! So suddenly thinking about writing in the genre of the books I loved was very exciting." After writing every spare moment for two years, Stephanie sold her first romantic comedy manuscript, IRRESISTIBLE? to Harlequin books. Two years later, she walked away from her corporate career to write commercial fiction full time. To date, she's published over 60 romance and mystery projects with Random House, St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins, and Mira Books, and is most well-known for her BODY MOVERS humorous mystery series.  She is a  featured author in Kindle Worlds.  http://amzn.to/182Otsn.

    in Lifestyle

    Donna Young was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. Always an avid reader, she grew up the youngest, but certainly, not the quietest of seven children. In her family, books were recycled almost as often as clothes. Westerns, Espionage, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance – she ended up loving them all.  That, combined with an over active imagination, a strong dependence on coffee and an unwavering belief in "happily ever after" seemed to do the trick. She's been writing for over five years now.   When Donna isn't writing, she's hanging with her kids, golfing, reading or catching up on her DVR movie backlog.
    Donna Young will be discussing her career and her Brand New Release!
    Her past Novels include some such as..
    Black Ops Bodyguard
