Abigail's Headed to Her Blog Tour


The Million Dollar Highway stretches for about 25 miles in western Colorado and follows the route of U.S. 550 between Silverton and Ouray, Colorado.

The Vibe: There’s nothing like slope hopping out west, but spring/summer is the best time to see the small towns of Southwest Colorado — they’re culturists’ dream destinations.

Along the Way: The drive from Denver to Ouray on I-70 West is through some breathtaking landscape in the mountains and national forests. Ouray is a famous ghost town that’s quirky and well preserved — it looks like a film set for a Western. If you’re driving during cold weather, the claim-to-fame in Ouray is the ice climbing at Ouray Ice Park. As the largest ice park in the world with 200 climbing routes, it’s one of the best places in the U.S. for this recreation. Take US-550 South to Durango, a charming town that’s home to cute cafes and old-school saloons. You can also take in the great views with an old-timey train ride from Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum or at San Jaun National Forest. From here, via CO-145 North, it’s only two hours to Telluride, which is home to Butch Cassidy’s first bank robbery. Travelers can visit the original safe in what’s now a sunglass store. Nearby highlights also include Ridgway, where True Grit was filmed; Sawpit, the smallest town in Colorado with a gas station and one street lamp (Oprah Winfrey and Tom Cruise own homes here), and the protrusion of Wilson Peak, the iconic mountain on every Coors Light beer can.

Donuts and Coffee


I love donuts and coffee. There is something harmonious about eating a fresh, hot glazed donut with a streaming cup of coffee filled with  an extra splash of French Vanilla creamer. No day is perfect but nirvana can be achieved for a few seconds each day wen you awake to the smell of coffee and hot donuts.

Taabia Dupree, Amazon Best Selling Author of Jessica's Obsession

Synopsis
*Taabia Dupree, Amazon Best Selling Author of Jessica's Obsession, wants readers to know that WolfsBlood has mature content.*
When Kaine Maccon left the Rocky Mountains, he thought he had turned his back on them forever. As fate would have it, his father falls ill, and he must return to claim his rightful place.
Blood will spill, and old lovers will reunite, but for how long? Will he be removed as the true heir?
Buy Link
WolfsBlood Pre-Order Buy link will be the same as the buy link on March 20th.http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00U426K4Y
 
Teaser
Chapter 1
Kaine sat at his desk and read his brother Aohdan's letter over.
 Kaine! Da is sick! You have to come back home. Aiden was told to not write. I was away and when I returned Da was down. Brother it hurts me to see him this way. I do not know if he will be in this world for long and it worries me. Rua Rainer has stepped up to help the young ones and my fur bunches to think Aiden or I were because of how he is taking care of the young ones. Kaine come home! No more wasting time away. Ma is gone, and Da has been going downhill for years. He tells you only what he wants you to know. He knows you will not listen to anything else. Brother I am telling you, get your ass home. This time listen to me. Rua will take the lead if Da dies and our family will no longer rule these mountains.
 
Kaine stopped reading, grabbed his keys off his desk and walked out of the office to his car.
Once inside the car he slammed his fist against the window pain. He could care less that he’d hit the window so hard it shook. 

He yelled, "Da, what are you thinking letting that animal come near our clan?"
Kaine pounded the steering wheel. His body was tense, and his blue eyes turned gray.  He needed to calm himself he thought.

He got out of his car and walked away before he did any damage inside. Despite his temperament, he found himself headed in the direction of the nearby park.

For six years, he stayed away from the Rocky Mountains. His father and brothers still lived near the stream at Oakea. The family was midway into the mountains but not too far up that the weather does not change. The cabin that his grandfather and grandmother built for their family still stood sturdy through tough winter storms.

Kaine's father, Stephan Maccon, and siblings helped keep the land around the cabin cleared and vegetated. The lower village’s townspeople stayed clear of particular paths in the mountains if they hiked. Anyone who walked close to that area would say the area above where they did not trespass was not feasible to vegetation. They also passed gossip around that it was dangerous for folks if they trekked higher up because there was a strange type of wolf that dwelled in that area.

His grandmother, Stephan’s mother, who died several years before Kaine came into the world, loved her flower beds and tended them until she expected the first frost. She would fill their cabin with the scent of freshly cut wildflowers during their springs and summers. His brothers and sisters had separate areas to rest their heads, but when they were old enough they went off on their own. Mostly the boys, the girls lived nearby in the village of Oakea.

Kaine heard these stories over and over as he grew up. As he walked closer to the parks edge, he watched children playing and mothers sitting nearby watching and chatting with others on benches. The park was near his office, and he usually went there to think. Today he went there to figure out what he would do about his brother's letter.

His younger brother Aiden was only twenty-one years old, he’d heard Aiden had a backbone but not enough to take on someone like Rua Rainer. Aohdan, twenty-six, strong willed, but more of a nature lover like their grandmother, had not sufficient strength to take on any Rainer, Kaine thought. Perhaps one of the others in Rainer’s pack, but not Rua himself. Anyone who took on a pack leader had to be as strong as his Da, and cocky. Willful wasn't enough; they had to be that assured of themselves to fight for what was right, and fight to kill if needed.

With a tensed body and balled fist, Kaine cursed his father. Dammit Da! Why did you have to get sick and not tell me? Why? Why is it so hard to speak to me? So I left! So I made a life for me! I deserved a bit of freedom. I worked hard to get where I am, and I refuse to....

He stopped. He knew his next thoughts would be lies, and he could not lie to himself. He wanted to say he would not go home. However, he knew if Rua took over as pack leader, the Maccon's would be shunned and run off their land.

Kaine turned away from the children who agitated him, because they stirred up memories of his childhood.

Author Bio
Taabia Dupree was born in the United States and grew up on the Eastern Seaboard. Her love of books and anything with words came from her parents. As a young person, Taabia read anything she could get her hands on, from cereal boxes, to the Encyclopedia Britannica, to the National Geographic, to the business section of the local newspaper. Yet some of her favorite reads came from writers; L'Amour, Tolstoy, Eddings, Tolkein, Hugo, Wright, Dickens and Hemingway.
In 1999, Taabia started writing erotic fantasy stories for online story groups. She self-published her first erotic story in 2011. Today, Taabia Dupree writes coming of age stories, erotic short stories, mystery & psychological-thrillers, paranormal shapeshifter stories, and poetry.
Taabia enjoys a challenge. Her plans are to write more romance mysteries and shapeshifter books. So, keep watch for her books coming out in 2015, and 2016.
Author Taabia Dupree's books include an Amazon Best Seller Jessica's Obsession, book one in her Anthony Stone Series. This book was recently put on a Barnes & Noble bookstore shelf in Boston. Her book Wolfsblood is releasing March 20, 2015. It's the first in a two part series in the paranormal genre for shapeshifters.
 
Questions
Where do you get your inspiration from?
One of the things that I am really drawn to is art and photography. I can see a picture and a story comes to light. Another way that I am inspired is by watching people. I can be anywhere and notice someone and instantly I become enthralled in an idea that they would make a great character. I have an unlimited source inside my head. I believe writers call them muses, and psychologist call them voices. (Big grin)
What words of wisdom would you pass on to other aspiring authors?
I tend to tell anyone who is interested in writing, write. Write your name, tell your story on a piece of paper. Find something of interest and write about that or write what in your head. Worry about grammar later. There are editors and proofreaders out there that will be more than happy to help you succeed. Don't give up if anyone tells you that what you have written isn't good enough. Join writer groups, find peers that are like you so you won't feel alone. Get support and ideas from these groups that will enhance what you already know about your writing. Never give up, and always keep learning about what's new out there in genres. Also, write outside of your box just once to have the experience of doing something different. Make your writing a challenge, and try not to be like everyone else, be different. Lastly, be leery of a good thing. If you are offered a contract, make sure you not the only one reading the fine print. Money may sound good, but be wise not to sell your soul. There are going to be people who want to read and review your work, be sure to copyright. Publish your work first before giving your work to a blogger or reviewer.
What is your favorite book you have written? Favorite character?
I loved writing all of my books, but my favorite character to write is Jessica of the Anthony Stone Series, book 1 Jessica's Obsession. That first book was way outside of my box. It started with an idea. I wanted to stay within my erotica genre but I wanted to play around with mystery too. The model and pro ex-wrestler John Quinlan has many fans, and some are pretty wild about him. So, as I was reading one of his post one day on Facebook, I recalled a person who tried to use his name as their own. I remember when it happened John and I talked about this guy and how John had to get this guy blocked. While I read this particular post an adoring fan of his was saying how John inspired her. John thanked her and that anything that he has done to inspire anyone in their life is what keeps him humbled. Then I thought if I put a story together where a guy had someone so in love with him that she wanted to stalk him, what would happen. My character Jessica was born. I loved writing about Jessica because she is twisted, and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. I even surprised John and put his real name into the first book as himself. John is on both covers, Jessica’s Obsession and book two Flagentio’s. John has said he has gotten many types of fans in his past and present day.
What made you choose wolves? What led you to write this book?
I have been fascinated by wolves since childhood. I learned about my families mixed heritage, and Blackfoot and Cherokee where among the largest part of my families past. I studied American Indian culture, plus learned about the different types of tribal people. As my studies progressed into college I learned my totem was the wolf. No surprise to me, my fascination had turned to love. I’d always wanted to write a story that included wolves and it finally came to past when Billy Thomas, a bodybuilder, showed up to a photo shoot at a writer’s convention in Vegas. Billy became my cover model for WolfsBlood. His picture, his personality, and my idea of what a hero should be, made up the blend of the heart of a wolf. That is when I began to write the story about Kaine Maccon, and his clan. The name Kaine Maccon came from two contest winners for a competition I posted for fans to come up with a name for my main character in WolfsBlood. The name became the symbolism of heart and loyalty, like a wolf.
Who is your biggest author inspiration?
I would have to say there are four authors that inspired me, Judy Blume, Piers Anthony, David Eddings, and Tolkein. Judy Blume wrote Are You There God It's Me Margaret, and ever girl back then wanted to increase their breast or know about menstrual cycles didn't they? Ha. My best friend and I did, and after that I read every one of her books, even into adulthood. I liked her style and how she could put the reader inside the story. Which made her in my book, a great storyteller.
Anthony, Eddings, and Tolkein are three of my favorite fantasy writers. I never thought I could write fantasy. There is a fantasy novel inside of me dying to get out, and because of these gentlemen, I will write that epic novel. They took me on many journeys and had me believing every place I went was real, until the end of the book of course. Then I was back to reality wanting more. I want to write books like that I said, and I am hoping that I am on my may to being just as great as they are to millions of readers.
Who do you picture playing the characters of your book if it were to be made into a movie/tv show? This is my list so far that I have come up with for my wish list of stars to play my characters. Link to my IF List http://www.iflist.com/stories/wolfsblood#
Peter Facinelli or Bradley Cooper or Cam Gigandet as Kaine Maccon
Jensen Ackles as Aohdan Maccon
Wyatt Smith as Aiden Maccon
Kate Winslet as Rhiannon Rainer
Theo Theodoridis as my Rua Rainer
Grey Damon as Tobak Rainer
Amber Heard as Chrystelle
The beautiful Ms. Sigourney Weaver for Lucialla & Pedro Moreno as Tre'.

Beauty Is Thine Name


I love this picture. It makes me wonder what is on this woman’s mind. She stands fierce in her riding clothes looking like she owns the world.  The photo has no name but it does not need one. All that could be said about this woman is embodied in her face as she stands regally and dares you to question her worth.
This woman is gorgeous. I want to wonder about her life in the Gilded Age of the 19th Century. But I can't because she is give me a fierce I rule the world look that transcends her era.
I don't know her name but whatever it is she owns it and dares you to not breathe after saying it. Beauty is her name and she is give it life.

Fairytale Love


Love is an incredible emotion. Like the wind you feel it, like rain you can see it. Like a tornado it can tear your soul out and dump it in a place you have never been. The quest for love never ends. Everyone wants and needs love. ~Abby~

I was listen to Kem as I read a book and it got me to thinking about love. Kem’s song “Why Would You Stay” is a beautiful song. He’s lost the woman he loves and he’s begging her to stay. What a beautiful song.

Putting the pieces to love back together is always a difficult task. The storm of love is dramatic, difficult and rewarding.

Lyrics of Love


 
 
Love songs often define love. Each and every time I hear an Al Green song I find that my definition of love is ingratiated in the lyrics of his songs. As my heart listens to the lyrics my heart becomes engulfed me in the flames of love.  The quit yearning for a lifelong love always blows a kiss to my heart.

Each and every time I look at my DH I think of these lyrics to “Lay it Down by Al Green”. …I just love you for yourself I don’t want nobody else…….. Your love is a wonder to me I just love I really love you for free… I love you for myself I got everything I need. Ever since I started holding your hand……you make me happy baby….When I see you I want to love you more and more….

 “I would just love for myself” is the best lyric I have ever heard. There is something about those words that make me smile. The wonder is love are lyric not just in my heart but in a song.

Love is truly a many spender thing

Abigail Love Romance



Head Over Heels

I've been head over heels for you since day one.

A day without you is like a day without sunshine.

Being with you is a wish come true.

We are connected in each other's thoughts two hearts that became one.

You are.....

I did not know it was possible to love so deeply until I met you

You are the bacon to my eggs

You are the cream to my coffee

You are the jelly to my peanut butter

You are the milk to my cookie

You are the smile to my face

This is a fairytale/legendary romance

Someday my prince will come and he will be Bass Reeves

Love is poetic and beautiful.
Falling in love is what every little girl dreams of. I always dreamed my prince would a badass like Bass Reeves. He come to my town and rescue me from bad guys and then become the sheriff of the town. I'd sit on our porch and watch as he tipped his hat and winked at me as he drug the bad guy jail.
O’ the dreams of a girl geek who loved to read.

I kissed a frog and I think I liked it.


      I’ve always wanted to be a princess. I even wanted to kiss the frog that turned into a prince. I can vividly remember my mother who a preschool teacher was reading my siblings and I fairytales at bedtime and when we took a naps in summertime.
    I would close my eyes and imagine myself as the Cinderella, Snow White or Little Red Ridinghood. Though Little Red Ridinghood was not a princess, in my book she was.
     I guess you could say I fell in love, with love, on those nights/and days that my mom would open her book of Grimm’s Fairytales.  I never grew up to be princess but I did kiss a frog who liked being a frog. No, he never turned into a prince. He was too happy being a frog. But in my heart he was my prince.
