Join Fey's Sparklers! / Monthly Mishmash


Radio Interview:

I did my first radio interview on Off The Chain, hosted by author Yvonne Mason. We discuss my pen name, how I started writing, the Disaster Crimes Series, and I share fiery details about Book 4. 



Recorded Interview:

I did this recorded interview back in June. It was posted earlier this month. Check it out and witness how terrified I am. LOL!




I'm starting a street team! :D


Fey's Sparklers

WHY SPARKLERS? Because they are cool. lol And because a spark can ignite a blaze, and that is what a street team does. They ignite blazes for authors and books.

SPARKLER GOALS: The members of Fey's Sparklers will have missions. Maybe two a month, to start. If you complete a mission, you will get a prize. Or if the mission is a big one, the person who completes the mission with the highest score (details later) will get the grand prize.

The prizes could be...ANYTHING!

I'll also offer advanced reader copies (ARCs) to Fey's Sparklers and do fun contests. For example, you could help me name characters and get credit for it.

WHERE: Fey's Sparklers will have a private Facebook Group for all of this to take place, so I'll need to be able to add you there. All members will get one of my ebooks (of their choosing) as a gift when they join.


If you're interested in being a Sparkler, please fill out THIS FORM. Or use the one below.

NOTE: If you don't know your FB URL, make sure we are friends so I can find you. Here is my personal FB.


GOODREADS GIVEAWAY:  I'm doing my first Goodreads giveaway for a print copy of Seismic Crimes. The giveaway will end on September 11th, so enter now! 

QUESTION: Will you sign up?

You seemed far less nervous as the interview went on. Didn't seem nervous at all on the one last week. The more you do, the easier it becomes looks like.

sage said...

I agree with Pat. His laid back demeanor and laughter seems to relax you. Great interview!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

You are doing amazing! Keep at it, Chrys!

Oh, and I really enjoyed your interview with Evan Carmichael about Your One Word. :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

You'll be a pro at those interviews in no time.

The Sparklers street team is a great idea.

Bish Denham said...

Yes, I can see you're nervous, but I would be too. You did a great job! You powered right through and came out the other side stronger.

Carrie-Anne said...

You didn't seem that nervous to me, at least not once the interview really got going. Most people tend to start with a bit of stage fright if they're not used to public speaking or having an audience.

Birgit said...

You look great and you sound great too! At first, everyone can be nervous but the interviewer knows this and seemed to help you. Once you started talking and getting into it, you relaxed and everything flowed. When you do more, it will become second nature. Good for you for starting the sparklers!

debi o'neille said...

Wow, Chrys. I haven't been by in a while, but I'm glad I stopped by today. Your interview was great, no matter how nervous you look. And who could resist buying the book after listening to this interview? No hurricanes here, I live in blizzard country, but I'm anxious to read about your stormy crimes. :-)

cleemckenzie said...

Congratulations on your interview. Great job. And keep those sparklers lighted!

Chrys Fey said...

The plan was to do more so I'd be more comfortable. Glad it shows. :)

Chrys Fey said...

It did. He's a great interviewer.

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Madeline! And I'm glad you watched the interview with Evan. :)

Chrys Fey said...

That's the plan. :)

Thanks!

Chrys Fey said...

By the end, I was like "Why did I think that'd be so awful?"

Chrys Fey said...

That makes me feel so much better! Thanks, Carrie-Anne!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Birgit! That's why I am trying to do more. My next event is a chat and reading at as library. Uh-oh! lol

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks for stopping by, Debi! Thank you! I sure hope that people who saw it decided to by Hurricane Crimes. It's pretty cheap. ;)

I'll be writing about a blizzard next. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, Lee!

nashvillecats2 said...

I thought you did extremely well.
Well done Chrys you have alot of nerve to do that/

Yvonne.

Chrys Fey said...

A lot of nerve? LOL I don't know. But I am trying to do more and beat my insecurities.

J.H. Moncrieff said...

It's been suggested I start a street team, but I've been hesitant to ask my readers to do more than they already do. Please let me know how it works for you--I'm curious.

Chrys Fey said...

If I can get enough people to want to join line, I'll let you know. LOL You can to a reader's group, instead.

Jemi Fraser said...

Sounds like a fun idea! :)

Liz A. said...

Sounds like it'll be fun.

Chrys Fey said...

I think so. :)

Chrys Fey said...

I plan to make it fun. :)

Sandra Cox said...

How exciting, Chrys, a street team and live interviews. You're turning into a celeb on us.

Chrys Fey said...

Hardly! I'm must doing what I can for my books. :)

Kelly Steel said...

How exciting for you. A live radio! Wow! Well done you!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

The Cynical Sailor said...

Congrats on the interviews! I wouldn't have the courage to be interviewed on video so I'm very impressed with your courage. I've seen some of your videos before and you have a lovely presence, so I'm sure you came across well in this one as well even if you were a bit nervous.

Juneta key said...

Really enjoyed learning about you. Great interviews, enjoyed both so much. You did great. You Go! Love watching you fly. Keep soaring.

Juneta @ Writer's Gambit

Christine Rains said...

How wonderful about the interviews! You are much braver than I am with that. :) Have a lovely week.

Lisa Thomson said...

You were great in the interviews, Chrys! You can publish those on your goodreads author profile page and amazon author page. Way to go!

Chrys Fey said...

They already are on my Goodreads page, but to get them on my Amazon profile they have to be on my computer. I only have access to YouTube links, so I can't upload them tyo Amazon. :(

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks! I am trying. :)

Chrys Fey said...

I'm glad you liked the interview with Evan and learned something from it. That was my goal. :)

Chrys Fey said...

I hope so. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! Your comment gave me confidence. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Juneta! I am trying my best. :)

Chrys Fey said...

I never would've been this brave, but I want to do whatever I can for my books.

Mina Burrows said...

I liked the interview. You did really well.

Magic Love Crow said...

Fantastic interview! The interviewer was great too! I think you were adorable! Liked your blue nail polish! I can say, I know someone famous!! I am so happy for you!! Big Hugs!

dolorah said...

Awesome interview. And what a great concept for the Sparklers.

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Mina!

Chrys Fey said...

It's funny that you noticed my blue nail polish. I painted them blue for Tsunami Crimes and the signing the next day. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, Dolorah!

Patsy said...

Don't let #Doubt extinguish your #Sparks. Find the #Sparks you need to ignite your stories, dreams, and life.

That's a great mission! I'm going to give that one a go.

Deniz Bevan said...

Love the name Sparklers! Hope you get an awesome team!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

I'm so proud of you. Your enthusiasm and dedication toward promoting your books is inspiring. What can I say? You... sparkle.

Your interview skills are getting better and better all the time. I really enjoyed the one with Evan. You go, girl!

Chrys Fey said...

I hope you do, Patsy. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks. Building a team is proving a little difficult, though.

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! I never thought I'd do or give interviews, but they say to never say never. ;)

You're awesome. I love your energy. Yeah, as a native Californian, I'm fairly well versed on earthquakes.
Congratulations on this interview.
Stay safe and well.

Suzanne Furness said...

Well done Chrys, you did great! Your Sparklers team sounds like a lovely idea, hope you collect an awesome team to help you.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Both great interviews, you sound so confident!

Mark said...

So cool! Congrats on the radio talk:)

Lux G. said...

You don't seem terrified. Good job! You've really done great.

Anonymous said...

I would be terrified too, but you did it, and I bet next time won't be as scary. =)

Sherry Ellis said...

You did a really good job on your interview! Your Sparklers idea sounds pretty cool. Hope you get a team together. (I don't think I'll do it at this time, because I just have way too much going on. Sorry.)

Nick Wilford said...

You'll be an old hand at these media interviews soon. Great job!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Robyn! I hope you stay safe and well, too.

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Suzanne! I hope so, too. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Really? I wasn't. lol

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you!

Chrys Fey said...

Really? Well, I was. LOL Thanks!

Chrys Fey said...

I hope next time won't be as scary. I'm hoping each one will make it easier. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! I don't blame you. I haven't been able to be a part of other street teams for the same reason.

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, Nick!
