    That's Novel Interview with Author Cassandre Dayne

    in Books

    Stephanie's interview with Cassandre Dayne will air on Wednesday, April 29, 2015.  You can find Cassandre's books on Amazon here:  http://amzn.to/1JgKWCV. 


    About Cassandre Dayne:


    Cassandre started writing stories and poems before she knew how to ride a bike and proceeded onto novels by age eleven. By the time she was an early teenager, she had written fifteen novels. As early adulthood, college and life settled in; writing was placed on the back burner but never forgotten entirely. Suddenly awakened by the rampant fantasies and untold stories of characters that flowed through her dreams every night and filtered into her daylight hours; she could hold back the creative process no longer.
    Cassandre writes highly erotic romance stories and novels in the contemporary, science fiction and paranormal flavors. Currently she has over fifty erotic romance novels published with Rebel Ink Press and several more under contract. 
    In addition, as her alter ego Bethany Halle, she is the host of the Edge on the World of Ink Network (a Blog Talk station) - taking authors to the very edge of their creative works.


    Cassandre is the Managing Director of both the Entice and Edge lines for Booktrope Publishing.

    Tell me, can you dare to take the plunge and enjoy a touch of the wicked?

    Who would have thought that a low budget film released in 1977 would create a culture all its own. Star Wars created by George Lucus took the world by storm creating one of the strongest brands that spawned 6 current movies, 2 tv shows, novels, comic books, role play games as well as a number video games. 


     


    Star Wars has impacted 3 generations so far and does not appear to be stopping any time soon. 


     


    On this special edition of Jedi Realist Radio we will be hosting a round table episode with a number of special hosts that gives May the 4th be with you a whole new meaning. So join the cast and crew of American Jedi for their celebration of this special day known as Global Star Wars Day. 


     


    On this episode we will be discussing what type of impact Star Wars has had on our lives, the American Jedi? project and this years upcoming Jedi Gathering in Indiana this August.  


     


    On this episode we will be joined by Gabriel Calderon?, Ross Greenberg?, Michael J Hannigan? and Laurent Malaquais?
