Today I have Eri Nelson, author of The Call From Within, on the blog for a guest post and giveaway. Enjoy!
Where does an Author/Indie Author know where to base their plot?
Worlds can be of whatever the author might want to make them. However they have to be somewhat plausible to the audience. Course it might help to be as detailed in your notes as to your ideas as possible. Even if you are not planning on sharing them with the world, so to speak.
For me there was nix on having to create a world. No for me I chose a place where I felt my characters could merge onto the earth easy enough. In doing so I had to do a bit of research.
I wanted a reserve somewhere that would be protected thus a realm where perhaps the unknown could be preserved. When I found one mountain base I seem to have found my particular spot in which to embed my plot line. Keep in mind there was still more research in which to derive before I could just write it all out on the screen.
But where does one go for research? Well for one hermit bound individual, the internet is a perfect start. It can even give you photos of your designation so you get a firmer grasp of your home you are now creating on the terrain.
Nevertheless do not just trust the internet for Intel. Go to your local library where books upon books can lay at your finger tips. The point is to gather as much as you can even if you have no plans to write on or about it. In collecting all you can, you in turn feel it within your being. Hence creating throughout your pages and thus making it easier and more subtle a task in which to form.
Wish to learn more? Maybe even discover how one Indie Authors characters came alive? Then I hope you will continue to follow all the incredible blogs that have allowed me to post my single adventure into the world of writing.
Thank you so much I Just Wanna Sit Here and Read for this brilliant scope in which to speak with you and your followers. It has been magnificent!
Thanks Eri for stopping by!

Dearhart Clan is a series of fast paced books that dabble in the world of paranormal and remain in the erotic pulse of what can only be classified as a primal fantasy. If it’s a typical romance you’re looking for you won’t find it in this series.
Eri Nelson writes in a darker world where heat and need are the forefront for a slipping existence. There is not time for all the tenderness love deserves but if you’re imprinted to another you are far beyond those mortal requirements.
Our author is driven by swift action packed intrigues that often leave you wanting more. As she writes each new book into the series the number of pages might increase but the action never lets you feel the increasing distance to the final page.
The Call From Within is Eri Nelson’s first look into this series. It is here that we meet Owen our Pack’s clan leader. He has been driven by what is expected of an alpha. Facts that were told through the decades all but look like fiction to him now. So he never dared to believe in fate and only let duty push him forth. Although now his resolves make no sense and it took little to no time at all in showing him through the lust he feels for another.
Kristen Still bares the imprinted mark to our handsome alpha. However he wasn’t the first to notice what she was and it’s that bedding of prior passions that control her new weakness. Yes, Owen is pushed by jealousy to possess what his four footed insight tells him is his.
A former distraction wanted more than heated moments with Kristen. In her he saw a stronger life force for his young and if Brinston Drake must he would take what he needs from her. He just did not foresee another finding her as well.
While the rest of Eri Nelson’s cast of characters find their selves caught up in furthering personal existences. Another by the name of Wash seeks to use their distractions as his gain. A rogue sent to track and update, Wash is tested by his hatred and desire for revenge. He’ll have it but not as quickly as he would like. But soon enough Owen will slip farther into his madness over a bitch in heat. Then Wash perhaps can use the heated vixen to distract both her and the alpha into their future demise.
Meet the Author
Hi, my name is Eri Nelson or as I rather like to call myself an Ohioan Hermit (lol). Life is pretty simple for me. I like being home where my family is. This family also includes are far too many pets. Although I try to put limits on our personal zoo we are hard to pass off a stray.
I have always enjoyed writing but never feeling that the patience was within me to write a book. So on a whim I wrote my first book of forty thousand words in the fall of 2010. Quickly following that up with a sequel in hopes to make a series of it. However these were not the series I chose to put out for readers….. That is, not just yet.
Loving challenges as I do, the call out for a paranormal romance caught my eye. So in my haste I threw out a fifteen thousand word book in hope that it could find its way into becoming an eBook. But alas this was turned down. However, like myself I did not write a series that was solely a romance. More what I think of as primal fantasies. Course I did not let the denial of what was not classed as their type of romance stop me. With the story still raging in my head my fingers typed off another round, making my one into two books. This one verging on a little over twenty-four thousand words. Well as it usually does in my case, the story line would not leave my head so now I am working on book three in the Dearhart Clan Series.
Now I must say that it was not just my love of writing that pushed me into looking for alternate publishing paths. No that honor goes to my husband, Jeff Nelson. He truly has been my most honest critic. It was not easy at first for me to concede to his thoughts. In fact it was every curse word I could think of stating how wrong his views were (lol). Nevertheless we came to a few resolutions and became a team in the editing process (so any errors in my books we blame him, ok….lol…just joking …wink wink).
You will never hear me claim to be this glorious fantastic writer. For I am just pleased when another simply enjoys the read. It truly amazes me when someone likes my writing style. I hope with all my heart, you dear reader will be one of those who do. Website | Facebook
