Submerged Blog Tour


Interview with Cheryl Kaye Tardif - writing

Do you have a set time that you write each day, or do you wait to be inspired?

I write when I can. Sometimes I will plan to write and set a time frame for doing so.

Do you plan out the entire book before you begin writing, or do you just sit down and write whatever comes to mind?

I always know what happens in the beginning and end, plus a few major scenes in between. I'll often start writing, and then make notes of anything I don't want to forget. I don't do a rigid synopsis or outline though. Usually I allow a plot idea to ferment a bit. The strongest ones are the ones I make notes on.

How do you deal with that dreaded "Writer's Block"?

I don't have to deal with it. I don't get it. Ever. When I decide I need to write something, no matter if it's fiction or non-fiction, or even an interview, the words come. Though I've heard that some writers really struggle at times with the words or the story, I think many are really afflicted by "Procrastination Block." I try not to procrastinate; I'm very organized. I have to be. Otherwise I think I'd go nuts. J

Are you currently working on another book? Would you tell us a bit about it?

I'm working on book 3 in my Divine series. DIVINE SANCTUARY. It's about a series of murders and their connections to a cult in British Columbia. Psychic agent Jasi McLellan and her team of covert agents head up the investigation, and it's smokin' hot!

What new doors has your writing opened up for you? Were there any opportunities that you had never considered before?

Writing has opened many doors. Most recently, I've had a number of foreign rights deals. These translations came out in 2012 and 2013. I've also been contacted by many in the film industry and came very close to a couple of film deals. Whale Song and Children of the Fog have really interested producers and directors. They'd make awesome movies! So would SUBMERGED. J

Do you have any advice for writers?

Write because you love writing. Learn everything about writing. Get your work edited by someone else. Learn the business of publishing. And above all, never, ever give up. If writing is your passion, write!

From Cheryl Kaye Tardif, the international bestselling author that brought you CHILDREN OF THE FOG, comes a terrifying new thriller that will leave you breathless…


"Submerged reads like an approaching storm, full of darkness, dread and electricity. Prepare for your skin to crawl."

—Andrew Gross, New York Times bestselling author of 15 Seconds

Shattered Silence - Cover Reveal

Keith never believed in Happily Ever After, at least not for someone like him. However, that’s exactly what it feels like when he has the love of his life by his side.

Alice fought everything she was, everything she thought she wanted to be, just to save him. When the nightmare blew over and the both of them were left standing, she thought she’d get her shot at happiness.

But how long can bliss last when everything they hold dear starts to crumble around them? Can they truly be free of a hatred that’s been alive for centuries?

The song has been played and, in its wake, the silence shatters…

If you’d like to preorder this book, grab some cool swag, brag about having a scene written for you or just be part of the project, there's an IndieGoGo page where you can get all that and more! Follow the link below and check out what you could get perks start from just a dollar!

Silent Song Cover

Alice had it all... By day, that is. By night, she had a secret she would never admit. Not even to herself. Except, if she doesn't acknowledge it, it might be lost forever. It would be easy to let go—if the price weren't his soul.

Psst! If you want to buy Silent Song, consider claiming it as a perk instead!
