    #T2Q Does The Movies

    in Film

    Movies have come a long way since I was a kid. The special effects are so realistic these days that you may temporary forget that dinosaurs don't exist. Or that there isn't a rebel colony in space.

    But what hasn't changed are the storylines. Reboot after reboot after reboot. Is Hollywood out of stories to tell? Are we going to be subjected to "cinema remixes"?

    We'll discuss this, our favorite action movies/characters, and maybe even some movie trivia on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show! "No experts. Just opinions."

    Show No. 539

    Scheduled for 90-120 mins.

    Thirller author James Hankins discusses writing on Authors on the Air LIVE

    in Books

    Authors on the Air Global Radio Network host Pam Stack welcomes thriller novelist James Hankins.  I truly enjoy having James visit the show. He's a savvy guest, a terrific writer and a wonderful guest host (listen to his podcast with Daniel Palmer).  Tonight we will discuss the craft of writing a thriller novel and James's writing process.  He will also talk about his current release, THE PRETTIEST ONE.  Here's a little synopsis:  "When Caitlin Sommers finds herself alone in a deserted parking lot with blood on her clothes and no memory of the past few months, it seems like one of the nightmares that have tormented her for years…but it’s all too real. Desperate to learn the truth about where she’s been and what has happened to her but terrified of what she may find, Caitlin embarks on a search for answers. Her journey takes her from the safe suburban world she knows to a seedy town she’s never heard of, where a terrible truth from her past lies hidden—a truth she can’t quite remember yet can’t completely forget."

    A Night of Heart Pounding Horror

    in Books

    Heavy breathing or deep growls are heard from the other side of the door. We all wonder why the character in a movie or book will open the door, knowing they are about to be attacked by the vicious monster waiting for them on the other side.  We brace ourselves, waiting for the inevitable blood-bath we know will come.  Then when the poor victim screams, experiencing their horrible death, we hide our faces, not wanting to see for fear the image will forever haunt our dreams.

    What makes us subject ourselves to such a fright? What makes us watch a movie, or read a book we know will make our nerves stand on end?  Those characters we will never forget, such as Freddie Krueger and Michael Myers, who made us cringe as they slaughtered their helpless victims.  Horror books and movies are an addiction for some, but everyone will delve into those stories from time to time for a brief escape into the dangerous world of HORROR.

    Lisa and Linda will spend an hour chatting with Horror Author Brian Moreland, as we discover what type of person it takes to create those stories that make you turn on all the lights and lock the doors.  Brian writes novels and short stories of horror and supernatural suspense. His books include Dead of Winter, Shadows in the Mist, The Girl from the Blood Coven, The Witching House, The Devil’s Woods, The Vagrants, and Darkness Rising. Brian lives in Dallas, Texas where he is diligently writing his next horror book.

The tragedy was compounded by the fact her parents had an appointment with a lawyer that very day to create a will. Because the will was never created, Kathleen grew up living with the consequences of no financial planning.

    Kathleen holds a passion in her heart for women, helping them create practical, long-term solutions to provide financial stability and a sense of security for themselves and their families.
