Welcome! Follow Fest is a blog hop for the purpose of connecting authors. Writing is one career choice that does not put you at the top of the social sphere. It's difficult because most of the time we are closeted off to ourselves in our caves. Most of us are shy, introvert, book addicts (or is that just me) so this connecting is so important.
Today is the last day of the hop. You can still sign up here!

Angelica Steward – but I write under Dawn Brazil

Fiction or nonfiction? 

What genres do you write?
Urban fantasy, paranormal romance, science fiction

Are you published?
Yes, I self-published my first book, Finding Me, in April of this year.

Do you do anything in addition to writing?

I love to cook and have talked seriously with my hubby about opening a Bed and Breakfast when our children are grown and out of the house. In addition to cooking, I love to read (of course) but I mean, I really like to read. I also love watching movies and eating York Peppermint patties.

A little about me….

I’m married and have three teenage kids that I adore – sometimes. I have a huge crush on Superman and will get into the silliest arguments with people who don’t think he’s as awesome as I think he is. I like to pretend that I’m Wonder Woman (when I was a kid, I’d bend wire hangers to make her head piece and put on a leotard and prance around the house). I’m from Michigan but not live in Texas…yeah, it was a huge adjustment at first just dealing with the weather. I would love to travel but haven’t had an opportunity except when I was in the military…but that so does not count for travel…IJS 

What are you reading right now?
I just finished reading a novel today, Ice Country by David Estes. It is the sixth book in the Dweller series. And is an awesome example of world-building and character depth/arch. I am finishing up Bloodlust by Nicole Zoltack, she’s an awesome writer of fantasy. And I just started The New Mrs. Collins by Quanie Miller.

Which authors influenced you the most?

Every author I read influences me in some way; even those books that I did not enjoy influence me as a writer. But if I had to narrow it down, Stephen King was Everything when I was a kid. I read his books in droves – still love him to this day.

Where can people connect with you?

Do you have a newsletter?

Not yet, but I know I need one.

Is there anything else you’d like us to know?

Yes, I believe in supporting other authors. I’ll participate in cover reveals, blog tours, and even review books for other authors (when time permits). I’m a busy lady but I can’t keep a book outta my hands. I have a preference for fantasy and science fiction but will read most anything with great characters. I had an aversion to romance for years but I’ve started to evolve. I’ve even read Nicholas Sparks and you can’t get any more romantic than him.
Have a great day. Read a book and laugh!

Cover Reveal: The Test of Time by Nicole Zoltack

Hi, everyone! This is Nicole Zoltack. I've written a bunch of romances, a lot in the speculative realm, and finally wrote a time travel romance: THE TEST OF TIME. And I adore the cover. It's beautiful. Wanna see it? Sure you do!



I could not be happier with it. What do you think of it?

BLURB: Katia jumps at the chance to go to England with her best friend after Rose ditches her deadbeat boyfriend. While walking through the market, she spies a large mansion and recognizes the guy out front as her high school friend Tony. Just as they start to reconnect, Katia passes through times and lands in the arms of Lord Landon, who looks like Tony but certainly doesn’t act like him.

Soon, Katia learns that this 1815 is different from the one in history books. Trapped in a parallel world, Katia struggles to not fall for Landon but his charm proves too much for her. Just when she is about to confess her love for him, Katia travels through time yet again.

The course of love never did run smooth and if Katia can’t figure out and master the test of time, she’ll never see or friends again, or worse, never be reunited with Landon.


So I'm sure you're dying to know the release date and luckily it's not that far away! THE TEST OF TIME releases September 9th! Be sure to grab it on the 9th! :D
