Today, Kelli McCracken joins me and we are talking gratitude and indie and rock n roll…

A: Kelli, what does gratitude mean to you this Memorial Day?

K: Well, Amber, gratitude means many things to me this Memorial Day. I’m grateful that I have met all the wonderful members of the Indie Book Collective. They have made the last six months as an indie author less confusing and frightening; I’m grateful for the support I have received. More importantly, I’m grateful for a country in which I have the freedom to express my creativity. That I have the right to write whatever comes to my mind. That would not be possible without the men and women of the military, who risk their lives everyday to give me these liberties and more. I’m grateful I’m an American.

K: What about you, Amber? What does gratitude mean to you this Memorial Day?

A: It means a lot of the same to me. I stand on the shoulders of my ancestors who struggled and fought to bring a better life to their children. My uncles fought in world wars. My grandparents settled wild lands. I get to live a better life every day thanks to their sacrifices and hard work. As a woman, I get to dress as I please, speak as I please, even write as I please all because I was born American. I sleep safe at night thanks to those braver than me who live by a call to duty.

A: And what does being Indie mean to you, Kelli?

K: Being Indie means the world to me. I see it as a blessing. I have an opportunity to share my stories with people. It means I have a chance to get know my fans on a more personal level. I can get my work to them without the delays of traditional publishing.
I get to meet amazing people on my journey. I’ve developed friendships with other writers who I don’t think I would have met had I stuck with the persuit of traditional publishing.
Being indie also makes me appreciate my freedom. I have no restraints holding me back; no one to tell me I’m not good enough. I have people encouraging me to keep going when I feel like quiting. I can pay it forward to others who share my stuggles and give them the encouragement they need to write another day.
Being indie means being true to my characters; to my story; to my heart.
K: What does being indie mean to you, Amber?

A: It means when, where, and how my stories are shared is up to me. Not subject to someone else’s timeline, or deadline, or opinion on its sales potential. I get to be 100% a part of the sales and fan equation.
It means getting to connect with readers and peers and share all that I’ve learned. It means grabbing a trend by the neck hairs and climbing on for each ride today, not tomorrow.
A: Can you tell us about your coming Indie release, Kelli?
K: Thank you, I’d love to! “What the Heart Wants” is a paranormal romance that takes place in Los Angeles, California. Heaven Lewis is invited to LA by her childhood best friend. Once there,  Heaven learns exactly why her BFF invited her and her life changes in ways she never expected. She meets Mr. Tall, dark, and yummy, Dylan McBride.
Dylan is the mysterious lead singer for the rock band, Sliders. When Dylan sees Heaven for the first time, he is blown away, mainly because he has been dreaming about her for the last six months. He is drawn to her by an unexplainable connection. This connection is so powerful that Dylan can sense Heaven’s emotions. He knows there is a reason why he dreamed of her and why they’re connected, but he doesn’t know how to find the answers. Dylan wants to tell Heaven about their connection, but fears any explanation would sound neurotic. He can’t afford to lose her after months of searching for her.
As Dylan pursues Heaven’s heart, they not only have to fight off insecurities, but nosy paparazzi, jealous friends, meddling family, and a deranged associate. If that isn’t enough, a misunderstanding leads to a horrific event that threatens to tear apart the budding relationship. “What the Heart Wants” is the first book in my Soulmate Series.
K: How about you, Amber? Fierce Dawn was so amazing, I can’t wait to get my hands on your next book. What indie project do you have in the works?
A: Yummy is right! This sounds like a great debut! A romance we can sink our teeth into. What is it about putting a guy in a band that ups his hot quotient SO much? I love the turmoil of fame you referenced and can’t wait to see how these two deal with it.
I’m so glad you enjoyed “Fierce Dawn.”
My next release is “Soul Search.” Set in early 1930’s, Thomas Grayson blames himself for his nephew’s disappearance and will do whatever it takes to find him, including embracing the wolf soul residing inside him. When a witness to his nephew’s disappearance surfaces, Thomas harbors serious doubts which only increase when Leigh Chaney’s secret is exposed. All her life, she has been in contact with the other side and what she learns there will test every belief Cash holds dear.
Then I have three sequels on deck, one of which follows, “Play Fling,” in the Stupid Cupid series. SPEAKING OF, every commenter today scores an ebook of “Play Fling.” I figure our troops could use a good laugh and Millie’s antics are always great for that as she stumbles through her matchmaking life sentence. But don’t believe me, just ask I Smell Sheep! Their review of “Play Fling” is HERE.
Since your book has a rock star hero, and the troops are our heroes, how about if everyone comments what their favorite all American rock song is? (Don’t forget to include your email address!)
A: Mine has GOT to be “American Girl” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers! How about you, Kelli?
K: My favorite all American rock song is “Miss America” by Saving Abel. The song gives me chills every time I hear it.
Okay, readers! All you have to do to get your instant free ebook, “Play Fling,” is comment what your fave all American song is and include your email. You’ll also be entered to win a brand, new KINDLE for you. Plus the Indie Book Collective, our tour host, will give multiple KINDLES to the troops!

    My favorite American song would be the National Anthem. I love to hear is song properly and I love to hear little kids sing it. Of course being a NASCAR fan, I get to hear it just about once a week without fail!

    Have a great weekend everyone.

  3. My favorite song has to be “Born in the USA” by Bruce Springsteen. You can’t get more American than that song, in my humble opinion! Thanks for doing everything in your power to get ebooks to soldiers in need!

  4. My favorite all-American song would have to be “Pink Houses” by John Mellencamp. It talks about the simplicities of what it means to be in a free society and that, even with imperfections, it’s still the best place to be!

    Thanks Amber… and our troops! Off to the next stop! 🙂

    This is such an amazing idea! Thank you for supporting our troops.

    My favorite song about America would be…well, there’s two. I love when Pollyanna sings: America, The Beautiful. The one that jerks tears from me every time is “Proud To Be An American” by Lee Greenwood. They play his song at the laser light show at Stone Mountain in Georgia and it’s so patriotic.

    I look forward to reading your book! Thanks for the freebie!

  8. I also love the National Anthem. It gives me goose bumps and of course I am usually teary eyed by the end. I also love “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee”.

Although I no longer have the site I will make sure and post a review on all the networking sites I can (Amazon too). As soon as I get the book I will begin reading it and review it. I will notify you of the review as well. Thanks again.

    • Amber, I know exactly what you mean with the National Anthem. Heck, I’m getting teary eyed just thinking about it, :o) Thanks for stopping by and showing your support!

  11. Morning Amber! I know it’s early, but I brought your salt rimmed Margarita.
    I would have to say that my favorite song is God Bless the US by Lee Greenwood. It’s such an emotional song and it really makes you appreciate this amazing country that we live in.
    They played this song at a Braves game after Sept 11th and there wasn’t a dry eye in the stadium.

  17. Good morning!

    I have to say that my favorite “America” song is also “Pink Houses” by John Mellencamp. Many of his songs are about the American experience–good and bad.

    My father is a veteran and I’m very proud of him (and all the rest of our soldiers; past and present).

    This is such a great idea. My favorite American song is a little different. I love “Cherokee People” by Paul Revere and the Raiders. You can’t get more American than the cherokee people and the line “so proud to live, so proud to die” really resonates with me.

  25. Thanks for the free eBook. I also have a specific soldier I’d like you to keep in mind for a free eBook, Private Zacheriah Schaneberger. I don’t have his email yet but I’ve got a call in to get it. He’ll be shipping overseas soon and could use the distraction. He doesn’t have a Kindle, but he has a laptop with the Kindle for PC application so he can read them from there. As for my favorite song, it’s “God Bless the USA”.

    I think my favorite American song is Life is a Highway by Tom Cochrane. It reminds me of the roadtrips I’ve taken across our amazing country and freedom with which we can. I think it helps that they used it in the Pixar movie Cars, too. 🙂

    Great idea to support our troops. I have the book Play fling on my list of summer reads and What the heart wants sounds like something I would love to read. On holidays that remind us to be thankful for those who have served or are serving our country I always think of my dad who served in the USMC in Vietnam. I am proud of that.

    Thank you to our troops! They put their lives on the line every day to try to make the world a better place to live. As an ex-wife of a Marine, I still think back fondly of some of the great men and women I met while living the Marine Corp life.

    Ask Elena if she brought a salt-rimmed margarita for me, too. It’s Friday and I definitely need two!

    Favorite song about America? That’s tough. There are so many. But Proud to Be an American still brings tears to my eyes. The anthem is great, too!

    Thank you to the IBC for bringing great books to the troops!

We all need to remember to be grateful to the guys and gals keeping us free. I could not remember my favorite rock song for a salute only the tune and so I searched youtube and found two videos that say it all. One is Proud to be an American and the other Coming to America – I put the link for the tour and these videos on my facebook they were so wonderful. I thank you for offering to give me your wonderful book, but I already have it and would request my copy go on the troops – thanks again so much for letting me enjoy this tour with you and for you much appreciated generosity.

  89. American Pie, by Don McLean. Music is so intertwined with our lives, and the loss of three top liners was an American tragedy. Also, just one of those songs when it’s playing, you can’t help but sing along.

    I love this Tour!!! This is such a great idea! I grew up a Navy brat, as my dad served for 12 years. So our soldiers and vets hold a special place in my heart!

    There’s so many great songs about America. I have 2 all-time favorites: Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” It’s been a favorite since it came out in the ’80’s. But then I was blown away my Alan Jackson’s “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?” I tear up every time I hear that song (including the other week when Scotty sang it on American Idol – lol)! That day is why are troops are in harms way today. So, God Bless the USA and God Bless our Men & Women in Uniform!!! Come home soon and come home safe!!!!!

  93. God bless the troops! Keep up the great work–and I hope you’re home with your families again soon.

    Amber and Kelli, I’m about to go indie, too. And I love to include heroes from the military in my stories. In fact, I have two Marines and a Navy corpsman in my upcoming Rescue Me series (to begin publishing by August, I hope). They’re the Masters of the Spurs and Leather club. I figured leathernecks and leather go together nicely. 🙂

    I’ll be releasing the free prequel and book one in the series simultaneously, after editing is finished. The first novel in the series will be NOBODY’S ANGEL.

    I agree that indie’s the way to go these days. Good luck, everyone!

    I am a Marine Mom and thank you for supporting our troops.

  200. Hi Amber. What a great project! I’d have to say one of my favorite patriotic/American songs is “American Child” by Phil Vassar. Love it! I am looking forward to reading your book.

  201. Hi Amber, what an awesome idea you have here! My favorite American song is “Proud to be an American”. I have several friends and acquaintances that are serving our country now. Thanks again!

  202. I just found out about this. Hope I’m not too late. What a wonderful way to make life a little bit more enjoyable for our troops. I also love Proud to be an American. But for a non-tear jerker, I love Fifty-Nifty United States. I remember learning it in 4th grade (still know it!) and my son sang it in kindergarten. 🙂

    If its not too late, I’d love a copy of Play Fling. Also really looking forward to What the Heart Wants when it comes out. It looks really good.

    Thanks,
    Laura

  203. Thanks for doing this – what a fantastic idea!!! My favorite song is ‘America the Beautiful’. I remember learning the words in 1st grade and have always loved it. As I have gotten older the meaning has changed for me and it continues to remain my favorite

    • I’ve always loved it, too. It reminds me of my Uncle, who I’m very close with. He’d sing it and tell us stories about our great grandmother coming to Nevada by wagon train.
      Thank you for commenting and supporting the troops!
