Listen on Demand!  The Edge with Casssandre Dayne 06/28 by WorldOfInkNetwork | Entertainment Podcasts.

Join Cassandre Dayne as she highlights artists who take their works to the edge. On Sunday, June 28, 2015 at 2pm EST, Pembroke Sinclair will talk with Cassandre on her latest release, her work with the Forsaken Imprint at Booktrope and her fascination with writing.

She has written an eclectic mix of fiction ranging from horror to sci-fi and even some westerns. Born in Rock Springs, Wyoming–the home of 56 nationalities–it is no wonder Pembroke ended up so creatively diverse. Her fascination with the notions of good and evil, demons and angels, and how the lines blur have inspired her writing. Pembroke lives in Laramie, Wyoming, with her husband, two spirited boys, a black lab named Ryder, and a rescue kitty named Alia, who happens to be the sweetest, most adorable kitty in the world! She cannot say no to dessert, orange soda, or cinnamon. She loves rats and tatts and rock and roll and wants to be an alien queen when she grows up.

Join and enjoy…if you dare…

Teague knows Nadeya is innocent, but proving it won’t be easy. She’s disappeared and the last anyone heard from her, she was looking for this man in connection with her fiancé’s murder.
Teague needs to find Nadeya before the police do. He must discover who killed the man on the beach and protect his friends and loved ones. Fortunately, he’s not alone. Joined once more by his cousin, Joel McMurtry, they are augmented by one more—Jasper Waters. He’s another police officer and former Marine. Adding to their numbers are Vivica, Teague’s fiancée, Nadeya and her best friend, Aileen. The bad guys really don’t stand a chance.
Join Teague and friends when they dodge bullets, rescue kidnapped victims and take an the airboat ride of their lives. It’s an adventure they won’t ever forget—provided they live through it.

About Author Dellani Oakes:
Dellani took up writing full time when her youngest son started kindergarten in 2002. Since then, she has published five books. She has two romantic suspense novels are with Tirgearr Publishing and an historical romance and two sci-fi novels with Second Wind Publishing. She has also contributed to several anthologies, MJ Magazine and shares her unpublished works on her blog.

Because she loves to talk to other authors, Dellani hosts two talk shows a month on Blog Talk Radio. Listen in every second Monday of the month at 4:00 PM Eastern for Dellani’s Tea Time, and every fourth Wednesday, at 4:00 PM Eastern for What’s Write for Me.
Armed with bravado and wonderfully supportive friends and family, Dellani has embarked on a journey of self-publication. Conduct Unbecomingis her first venture into this new, and somewhat scary, world.
What made you decide to self-published Conduct Unbecoming?
I love my publishers, but they are busy with other authors as well as me. I have books I really want to have published, but can’t get out as soon as I’d like to. I’ve been afraid to do this until many of my friends encouraged me to try it. Thank you Christina Giguere, Karen Vaughan and Ethel Cook-Wilson for convincing me that I could, and should, give it a try.
What’s next from Dellani?
I’m always working on something. I have several books that I’ve shared on my blog. I plan to get these ready to self-publish. The one I’m currently sharing on my blog, Bad Fall, is actually a companion novel to Conduct Unbecoming. The main character is mentioned in Conduct Unbecoming, and one of the villains is the same. I am also writing a sequel to Bad Fall, and it’s an extension of both Conduct Unbecoming and Bad Fall. The title is A Matter of Time.
Dellani’s advice to aspiring author?
Learn grammar! I realize that makes me sound like an English teacher, which I am, but it’s important. I just finished reading a wonderful book that had a great plot and held my interest, but the author kept hopping from present to past tense. There were times that she switched from first person narrative to third person in the same sentence. It was a little frustrating. Also, PLEASE learn the difference between LAY and LIE and use them right! That bugs the crap out of me. I despair of ever winning that battle, because nearly everyone does it wrong.
READ an Excerpt from Conduct Unbecoming:

Birds squawked nearby, flapping their wings wildly. Teague looked up to see what caused the commotion. Instead of focusing on the birds, his gaze homed in on a woman. She stood on the boardwalk on the dunes, overlooking the jetty. She was dressed in black pants and tank top. The wind from the ocean blew her long hair around her like an ebony fan. He couldn’t see her face, but he knew instinctively who it was.
Saying nothing, he took off up the dunes, trying to find the access. There wasn’t one near enough, so he climbed the struts and jumped over the railing. The woman was gone, but he saw her retreating, jogging away from the beach. She wasn’t running fast and he knew he could catch her. He sensed that she wanted him to. Knowing he would probably regret it, he took off after her.
Neil called from the beach, but Teague ignored him, intent on following the woman in black. He heard the thud of footsteps behind him and knew his friends were following. The woman in black disappeared around a curve. Teague sped up, but she was out of sight. She could have jumped over the side of the boardwalk at any time. She might even be under it. Teague stopped to reconnoiter. He didn’t see footprints in the sand, which meant she was probably still on the boardwalk.
Danielle caught up with him before the men. “What’s up?”
“I thought I saw Nadeya.”
Danielle shaded her eyes, frowning. “Dammit!”
“Yeah.” He took off running again. He didn’t expect to find her, but he could hope.
“Teague!” Danielle called after him. “Wait.”
“She can’t be far,” he said. But he knew she was probably long gone.
He jogged the rest of the way to the parking lot, but had no idea what Nadeya might be driving. The few cars in the lot were empty. He walked over and examined each one carefully, peeping inside. A woman came out of the restroom and yelled at him.
“Hey! Get away from my car!” she bellowed.
She wasn’t Nadeya. Her hair was short, blond and frizzy. She weighed over 200 pounds and her skin was pale. If it was a disguise, it was the most authentic fat suit he’d ever seen.
“Sorry. I was looking for a friend of mine.”
“In my car?”
“I don’t know what she’s driving. Did you see a tall woman in black in the restroom?”
“If I did, what’s it to you?” the woman said, hands on her hips. Her beefy jaw stuck out and she looked like she was spoiling for a fight.
“She’s a friend of mine. She’s in trouble.”
“Didn’t see her. Get away from my car.”
Teague held his hands away from his body and moved laterally away from her. “Sorry for the misunderstanding.” He walked toward the restroom.
“That’s the women’s bathroom!” the blonde woman yelled after him.
“So?” He kept moving.
The last he saw of the fat woman, she was on the phone, presumably calling the authorities. Teague knew most of the park rangers and was related to some of them. He wasn’t worried.
“Nadeya?” he called softly as he approached the bathroom building. “It’s Teague.”
There was a rustling in the bushes behind him, but it turned out to be a raccoon. Frustrated, Teague surveyed the area before going into the bathroom. She wasn’t there. He hadn’t really expected her to be. There was no sign of her anywhere. Suddenly thirsty, Teague headed to the vending machines for a drink. There was a supply shed attached where the rangers kept tools and spare drinks for the machines. It was always locked with a padlock. Today, the lock was missing and the wood looked freshly scored.
Wishing he had backup, Teague moved quietly to the shed door, his borrowed weapon in hand. He slid his sunglasses up to the top of his head as he reached for the door. The shed was dim inside, very little light coming through the lattice work on the side. His eyes adjusted quickly to the darkness and he checked the shed carefully.
“Nadeya?” He spoke softly, moving into the shed another step. Warily, he pushed the door all the way back, propping it with a case of Coke. The space was about fifteen feet deep and eight feet wide. Soda cartons were stacked on the left side and a tool bench stretched across one end. Yard equipment and a golf cart took up the rest of the space. There was really no hiding place in here, unless she could squeeze herself into the tiny space under the tool bench. Teague checked. Nothing.
