Moving forth: Guidebook details!

Well I survived the ick! I won’t say I’m feeling normal, cause then I would beg the question: What’s normal? I’ll just say I’m feeling like myself again, yay! :)

So onward we go! I said I would let you in on more details about the Guidebook so here goes. The following is a list of some of the information offered in the TEAS Guidebook:

*Character profiles: Allowing for a better mental picture of who they are (This will include characters you have not met yet, so there are possible spoilers within this section)

*Character Documentation: Giving you simple stats such as birth date, full name and the world they are from (This section is meant just for that quick glance, when all you need is a small piece of info)

*Family Trees: Breaking each family down for a better understanding of who’s related to who (Not all characters are included in this section)

*Species per world: Explaining all the different types of species existing throughout the story and the world they originate from (This section also offers the meanings behind certain species’ eye coloration)

*World stats: Giving historical and current statistics on each world

*Ranks of Leadership: Describing positions of Leadership for each world and how they reign

*Power colors and meanings: Most characters use some form of power, especially when battling enemies. This section will explain what the different colors mean for each power used

*Power flow charts: Most power based battles are done through music in a stage setting. This section shows detailed charts of how that power is used to defeat the enemy and so forth

*Holidays: We all love to celebrate the holidays and the TEAS characters are no different. This section explains the holidays each world celebrates, when and what it all means

*The Phoenix and the Prophecy: This section explains the story of the Phoenix as told by Gabriel Wallace in Beyond This Life. It also explains all the children involved in the prophecy and the task chosen for them. (Spoiler alert!)

This is about all I have to share with you for now, but it’s a good start anyway. So as you can see, the Guidebook will have sooooo much to offer! Although this series is HUGE, there is no need to be intimidated by the amount of characters and information offered in each book. The Guidebook will help you every step of the way! If you forget who someone is, the role they play, the world they came from or you just want to know more about them, the Guidebook will have it all for you!

Just remember one thing: there are spoilers within the Guidebook if you look too far ahead! My only advice for that is…DON”T! ;)

If you don’t recognize a characters name, pass it by. Look the character up later on when they are introduced in the series. And no, I can’t even begin to tell you how long the series will be. I honestly don’t have a clue. All I know is there is LOTS more to tell in this series and it only gets better as the story builds! ;) So sit back, start collecting the books before you get too far behind and enjoy Through the Eyes of A Stranger! And don’t forget your Guidebook! :)

Until next time…

How To Write A Press Release For Beginners

Originally posted on :

Writing on Typewriter

I finished my book, had it edited by a professional, and created myself a website. After sending my book off to the publishers, I started looking for more to do. What’s next? The obvious answer was, write a press release! But how do I that?

I can’t tell you how many times I searched Google for the answers. Just one simple formula or easy way to do it. I looked at so many examples of press releases from well-established authors that I could have gone blind, but I didn’t see One press release for a beginner author.

Every example had… New York Times Best Selling Author Releases Captivating Thriller. But what if I’m not a New York Times best seller? What if I’m a nobody with a story to tell? There wasn’t any press release samples from newbie authors out there, so I decided after I wrote my mine I’d…

Nothing like it… :/

I tell ya, there’s nothing like a small family vacation ending in sickness to really knock you out of commission for a while. Big fat MEH!!!

Anywho, I got on here real quick just to let you know that I haven’t forgotten about ya’ll. My head is under 10 feet of water right now and I’m tired of coughing. Regardless, I was suppose to let you know more about the guidebook and I will do so…just not today.

Must get more rest so I can think properly. I wouldn’t want to tell you something about the guidebook that doesn’t make any sense or I don’t plan on putting in there.

You get the point.

I’ll return when my mind functions.

The secret is out! ;)

Last week I posted the new trailer for the next chapter in the TEAS series, or shall I say chapters! For anyone who missed it, the big surprise for TEAS this year is the release of the next TWO books in the series! PLUS, I will be releasing a Guidebook as well! :)

The third book is titled: A Time in Reverse. Here is the synopsis:

Everyone has untold secrets. Some hide theirs better than others. For some, the past has shaped who they have become today. For others, it only haunts them. Discover who holds the biggest secrets and what it may mean for the future of all the worlds.
As the journey continues, there are many struggles and challenges that lie ahead: lives are torn apart and more truth is revealed about the darkness. Through all of this, someone must make a change before all is lost. What can be done and who will take the stand?
Find out this and more in the next chapter of the Through the Eyes of A Stranger series.

The fourth book is titled: A Shattered Fortress. I haven’t finished writing it yet so I’m not quite sure what I would like to say in the synopsis but you can certainly check out the trailer for a better idea.

And now for the ultimately cool Guidebook! ;)

This book will offer anything and everything you can think of! It will contain all the character profiles, even the ones you have not met yet! Yes, it may contain spoilers, so don’t go crazy looking through all the information right away, hehehehehe. I will also be cautious about the information offered. I wouldn’t want to spoil everything now would I.

There’s so much more to talk about with the Guidebook but I won’t go into complete detail today, I have much work to accomplish. I will return next week with a new post explaining everything the Guidebook has to offer. Until then, check out the trailer and if you haven’t purchased your copy of the first two books, the links above will lead you to them. Have a wonderful week!

TEAS book cover art 1

And here we go! :)

For all of you who have been patiently waiting for the big reveal of the 2015 TEAS series….you don’t have to bite your nails any longer! ;) Sit back from the edge of your seat and relax…for here it is! :) Although, if I tell you what it is in these words, it would ruin the anticipation of the video. I know, I’m so mean. ;) You can get a good idea just from the title of the video, but what fun is that! Take a look and much more will be revealed! And just remember…I told you 2015 would be big for TEAS! Enjoy and give me some feedback please! I’d love to hear what you think!

Take Care,

S.P. Kaye

**BTW, I don’t currently have a release date (other than 2015) but I will certainly let you know when I do!**


With the upcoming holidays, there is lots to do and so much to look forward to. As for me, I am looking forward to sharing my big surprise with all of you! With the new year approaching, the Through the Eyes of A Stranger series continues to grow. As most of you may already know, I have finished writing the third book in the series. It is still in the editing process but it will be released in 2015!

I also have a very special surprise for all who love the TEAS series! I plan on revealing that surprise in the beginning of the new year, so stayed tuned! If you have not yet got your copy of Beyond This Life and Pieces, you may want to do so soon. I guarantee if you try to read book 3 without reading the first two, you will be lost.

The easiest way to find the copies of the first two books is to search Lulu, Amazon (including Kindle) and Smashwords. I just realized I no longer have all the quick links that I used to have. I’m very sorry about that. I will fix it as soon as I can.

Until next time,

Take Care and God Bless!


’tis the season…

Good evening everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful Thanksgiving! I thought I would change up my theme to get into the holiday spirit! ;) Do ya like it?

Anywho, my husband and I are hard at work (with the time we have available) trying to get through the edits of the third book. For those of you who have not seen the news yet…the third book in the Through the Eyes of A Stranger series has been completed…well, except for the edits of course.

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you all find what you are truly thankful for! As for me, it is many things. But the biggest thing of all is I’m thankful for everything the Lord has blessed me with. My family, my puppies, a fulfilling job of grooming dogs and of course the ability to write and be creative. I’m also thankful for those of you who care enough about my writing to continuously support and put up with my sporadic posts. But seriously…THANK YOU!

Out of all honesty, I may not have sold very many books just yet, but I still really enjoy putting this series together. The writing is intense, the story draws you in and best of all, it’s easy reading. I don’t use those big, confusing words or sentences because I don’t like them. When I read books like that, I have to read like one paragraph or even one sentence several times over just to understand what the heck was going on. Now, I’m certainly not putting anyone down who does write that way. As a matter of fact I say kudos to you if you can…same goes for those who can read books like that…bravo! :) I’m more of the simplistic type. I will be quite honest, I don’t always know how to put things into words well, but I know what I want to say. I’m thankful my husband is a lot smarter than me, and patient with me as well, cause he helps me out on a lot of levels when it comes to that. However, 97% of the words in my books are my own. He has a few in there that I’ve accepted during edits…hehehe :) Anywho, enough with my rambling, THANK YOU IMMENSELY FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

I’m still planning on a BIG reveal in 2015 of a special surprise in the TEAS series. So be prepared, because trust me, THIS IS BIG!!!!!! :) Until next time, don’t eat too much turkey and have a wonderful holiday season!

God Bless and Take Care,

S.P. Kaye

Good News Everyone!


I have finished writing the third book in the Through the Eyes of A Stranger series! The first edits are finished and it has been handed over for the second edits to begin. I don’t have any cover art to show to you just yet, but we are getting there. The title to the third book of TEAS is: A Time in Reverse.

I’m not sure if I will make changes to this or not, but for now here is the synopsis for A Time in Reverse:


Everyone has untold secrets of their past. Some hide theirs better than others. For some, the past has shaped who they have become today. For others, it only haunts them. Discover who holds the biggest secrets and what it may mean for the future of all the worlds.
As the journey continues, there are many struggles and challenges that lie ahead, lives are torn apart, and more truth about the darkness is revealed. Through all of this, someone must make a change before all is lost. What can be done and who will take the stand?

May, June, JULY!?

Holy cow how time flies! I missed any opportunities for updated posts in the last 2 months. Now here it is, halfway to August and I’m just now finding a small window. :/

Life around here has been NUTS!!! Between, several birthdays, graduation, holidays and numerous other responsibilities, it’s been beyond difficult to find anytime to write. Needless to say, after the last post I made, I am JUST NOW finding an opportunity to get back to work on my book.

I still plan on releasing the third book to the TEAS series, along with the special surprise, in 2015. As of now, I still cannot give even an estimated time for release other than sometime in 2015. That’s all I really have at this time, I’m going to get back to work before my window is shut again.

Thanks for your continued support!
