Visiting Author Post - james crawford

I am glad to welcome our visiting author today, james crawford!!! I absolutely love his writing and I'm thrilled that he is joining us.  Let me shut up and get out of the way now. (grin)


So it’s November. For most people it’s a time for Pumpkin flavored everything and to reflect on what you are thankful for. This year I also celebrate my thirtieth birthday, so it’s the time to reflect on what I am most thankful for and plan for ‘my next thirty years.’

I for one a very thankful for my first thirty years. They have not always been great, but they weren’t all bad either. There were lots of sad, almost unbearable moments, mixed in with plenty of happy, walking on cloud nine moments. Failures and victories. What I have learned during my first thirty years is that no matter what you are going through; good or bad having family and friends that are there for you is more important than gold. There have been dark times in my life that I can say for sure that having people that love me was as that have pulled me back from the proverbial ledge.

For my next thirty years. I want to stop focusing so much on myself and start focusing on helping others more. I have been watching a Lot of The Ellen Show lately and she is the person I want to be. No I already know I have no hope at being funny (learned that in the first thirty.). I want to be as generous and loving as she is.  Becoming a beautiful person on the inside is my goal for my next thirty years. Now I’m not exactly rich, okay so I’m nowhere near rich so its not like I can just write a check and smile. It’s going to take work, lots and lots of hard work. Being I don’t have a full bank account I will have to do what I can, and that’s fundraising events.  I want to do more fundraising events for different organizations. That is the most fulfilling thing I can do wi

th what I have.

If I can't be Ellen Degeneres, I’ll have to strive for James Crawford the Generous! Sounds catchy, lol

Please check out my book Caleo leech book one, first in a trilogy available in Print, Ebook and audio book.

Every High School has their social outcasts. The band nerds, the math geeks, the chess club, the girl that chews her hair, but at Butler High, even the creepy nose picker in the chess club is more popular than Caleo Anima. No matter what he did, his pale skin, snow white hair, and piercing blue eyes always made him an easy target. He used to think that the only way things could get worse would be if someone found out that he was gay, but that isn't even the tip of the iceberg of problems after a mysterious stranger shows up and changes Caleo’s life forever.

Hidden amongst our society, a secret and magical race of people known as ‘Leeches’, have been engaging in civil war for decades. Both sides are desperately searching for a weapon with unlimited power that will give them the advantage they need to rule their world. This wouldn’t mean anything to Caleo, except for one problem...He is that weapon!

Forget making it through High School. Caleo has bigger problems! As the search for him goes on, the world is quickly crumbling around him. He's now fighting for his life and the life of what little family he has left. With the help of new friends, he has little time to try and master his newly found powers as he tries to figure out who he can trust, who is trying to use him, and who just wants him dead. One wrong step and being the awkward pale outcast will be the least of his worries.

P.S. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter or Facebook I would love to hear what you think of my books.

Every high school has it's social elite; the football players and cheerleaders ... you know, the popular crowd. At Butler High, Jack Barely was as close to the top as they came. Captain of the swim team, great hair, and abs that most would die for. However, that was all before the Leeches attacked, taking away everything: his popularity, his house, his grandmother, and even his best friend, Caleo, whom he secretly loved.

Now, living in a destroyed world, popularity means nothing as Jack struggles just to keep him and his twin sister, Jillian, alive. With attacks happening more frequently, Jack starts to wonder why they are even bothering to try and hold onto the past when it just reminds him of all they have lost. Just when he has given up hope, Jack hears a rumor that Caleo is still alive and sets out on a mission to find him. But will Jack make it to finally tell Caleo how he really feels?
