The Story Behind Let Me Go by Willow Rose

By Willow Rose

Let Me Go is the fifth book in my Eva Rae Thomas Mystery series.

Former FBI-profiler Eva Rae Thomas is chasing a killer that no one believes even exists. The story is about swatting, the act of making a prank call to emergency services to bring a large number of armed police officers to a particular address. It’s been known to be used as harassment and has ended up fatally in some cases. It’s used a lot in the gaming community. The killer in this book is using it to get his message out. It’s the perfect murder because it doesn’t look like murder.

The idea for this story came from an article I read about a woman who had been swatted as a form of harassment. Her teenage son was at home alone when it happened, and she was terrified that he might be killed by the police entering her home, thinking he might be armed. He wasn’t harmed, but the thought of it stirred up something inside of me, and I began researching the phenomenon. I found a lot written about it and found out it was very common in the gaming world. Some YouTubers are being swatted regularly while doing their videos. Luckily, it’s rare that it ends in fatalities or even people getting hurt. But I did find one story where it went terribly wrong. That was the story I used as the inspiration for my book.

Tyler Barriss was a serial swatter, and he called in bomb threats regularly and was making money off of people wanting him to swat someone for them. He bragged about it online, and one day, he and someone else decided to swat a guy that they had a dispute within a Call of Duty game. They called in a hostage situation to an address, and when the police arrived, the man living in the house at the address they had given walked out on the porch and was shot because the police thought he was armed and reaching for a gun. The man died. But that’s not all of it. It turned out it was the wrong address. It wasn’t even the guy they wanted to harass; it was some complete stranger, a 28-year-old man and a father of two who lost his life that day. The guy who made the call was later found, and he got twenty years in jail. His friend got fifteen months.

Interview with Molly O’Keefe, author of A Day In The Death of Walter Zawislak

What can you tell us about your new release, A Day In The Death of Walter Zawislak?

A Day In The Death of Walter Zawislak is perfect for fans of The Five People You Meet In Heaven and A Christmas Carol.

Walter Zawislak has died and to his surprise he gets one day to relive before heading into the great unknown. Walter believes he wasted his days since his beloved wife Rosie died and his daughter stopped talking to him. He doesn’t think he has any days worth reliving. Peter, the mysterious young man in charge of Walter’s file, has a few tricks up his sleeve and he shows Walter that he has a lot of days to be proud of. Days to savour and relish. Looking back over his life shows Walter his life was full of beauty and grace. And so much love.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

Mrs. Jordal my fifth grade teacher was the first teacher I had who wrote on my report card – “Yes, Molly is terrible at math. But she’s so good in English.” And she pushed me towards opportunities where I could shine as a young writer. I was very lucky to have teachers like that in high school too. Also reading L.M. Montgomery’s Emily of New Moon books was an eye opening experience for me. It had not occurred to me that being a writer was thing you could BE.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

Oh wow – okay. Dream A Little Dream by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, The Shadow and The Star by Laura Kindle and Lover Awakened by JR Ward – are my top romance reads! After that – anything by Joshilyn Jackson – particularly A Grown Up Kind of Pretty. And my favorite book out recently is That Reckless Oath We Made by Bryn Greenwood – absolutely breathtaking!

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

I’d love to talk to Bryn Greenwood about her process, about how she just digs and digs and digs into her characters finding a kind of bedrock truth.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love the days when it’s going well. When the words and the revelations and the characters just come to me fully formed and I love the moments when I see the solution to a problem in the book that has been bothering me for ages. It feels like discovering gold every time it happens!

What is a typical day like for you?

Wake up. Coffee. Send the kids off. Work. Walk the dog. Work a little more. Kids come home. Dinner. Maybe a little more work. Repeat.

What scene in A Day In The Death of Walter Zawislak was your favorite to write?

Oh, there are a lot of scenes I love in this book. The scene with Walt and his cousin in the strip club. The scene in the diner when Walter finally has the courage to ask Rosie out. But honestly, it was the extremely intense scene during the Vietnam War. I didn’t know I had that scene in me. And – as a fun side note – in the audio version of the book, the narrator Cam Drynan – KILLS that scene. It’s absolutely edge-of-your-seat dramatic.

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

Hmmm… I try to be of service. To my family, my friends. My community. The books I write.

SHINE NOT BURN (Shine Not Burn #1) by ELLE CASEY

The question is, could I have a one night stand with a man named Mack who wears a cowboy hat to a casino?’

This book has been sitting on our kindle for four years and we’re so annoyed with ourselves that we’ve only read it now. But that’s the life of a book worm. We buy books every single day but haven’t got the time to read them all even though we’d love nothing more. With thousands of unread books on our Kindles we’re spoilt for choice so sometimes it’s such a happy revelation when we find that perfect book for our reading mood already sat on our kindles. Andie and Mack’s story was just wonderful and we loved every single minute. It had hilarious banter, swoony romance and hot n’ saucy naughty ‘cuddle time’.

What a sweet, funny and saucy ride this was, we highly recommend it to all the romantics out there who love their second chance cowboy romances.

Interview with Krissy Daniels, author of Truck Stop Titan

What can you tell us about your new release, Truck Stop Titan?

Dane Reynolds is a criminal who wants to be free of the MC life. He stumbles upon a child prisoner and takes her to a rescue home for trafficked children. Dane forms a bond with the child, and eventually with her quirky aunt who has her own set of issues. As with all of the books in the series, Titan is a little dark, a little dirty, pulls at your heartstrings, and of course, wraps up the series with a satisfying HEA.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I’ve been in love with storytelling for as long as I could hold a pencil. Despite encouragement from teachers, family, and friends, I never considered making a career of writing. It wasn’t until my children were in school that I wrote my first novel. A few years back, I learned that a former high school classmate, Rebecca Zanetti had written a series. I was so excited, I bought and devoured all of her books. Then I reached out and said, “Hey, I wrote a book. What do I do now?” Becky was so gracious, thank God. She offered a ton of advice, then encouraged me to join RWA and my local chapter. I joined. A few months later, I signed my first contract.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

That’s an impossible question to answer because I read so many books —mostly romance— and every couple of months, I have a new favorite. I do have a list of favorite series: In The Company Of Killers by J.A. Redmerski. The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. The Deliver Series by Pam Godwin. The Corruption Series by C.D. Reiss. The Sin Brother series by Rebecca Zanetti.

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

I won’t lie. This could never happen. I’ve met a couple of my favorite authors over the years and the moment I’m in their presence, I turn into a blubbering mess. That being said, I would ask J.R. Ward what she has against baby powder.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love this question. My favorite thing about writing is getting lost in the characters. Becoming someone else. Sweet and innocent. Dark and disturbing. Young or old. I get to live hundreds of crazy adventures through my characters.

What is a typical day like for you?

My life in a nutshell? Chaotic and boring. Work the day job to support my writing career. Come home. Herd the dogs. Take care of the household duties. Take care of the wifely duties *wink, wink*. My children are self sufficient, so there isn’t much parenting required of me anymore, but they still need attention. Squeeze in as much writing time as I can before I pass out.

What scene in Truck Stop Titan was your favorite to write?

The scene when Dane confesses his sins to James, unaware that Tango is listening. That scene wraps up unanswered questions from the long and volatile relationship between Dane, Tango, and Slade throughout the series.

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

After a couple of challenging years, my husband and I decided that “Fuck it” would be our new motto. Can I say that? If not, apologies. But it’s amazing how many situations (good or bad) those two words have gotten me into, or out of.
