🎄 Spotlight Tour 🎄 Happily (N)ever After- An Anthology

Happily (N)ever After- An Anthology
Authors- Aramey, Emilie E. Faye, C.L. Foster, A.M. Hart, Allana Kephart, K.B. Mathias, E.R. Rada, David Roraff
Publication Date- November 25th, 2014

Sometimes you are lucky enough to dodge a bullet...but sometimes it strikes straight to the heart without an exit wound. It rattles around, leaks out our trust, and brings us to our knees making us wonder; why the %&$@ did I date you!?

From the darkness of emotional and/or physical pains we crawled out and eventually found a way to dust ourselves off and carry on with life.

So let these stories serve as a guide, that all that glitters is not always gold. That the felling of the hairs rising on the back of your neck is a warning, a primal scream to let us know that some things are not as they seem. Trust your gut. Yes, some people are worth fighting for but others have somehow tricked us into seeing a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

With hindsight fully engaged, we can now see the clarity of our past and appreciate the lessons we learned in our very own happily never after.


E.R. Rada's Writing Playlist- 

The music I play most is: Dubstep, Classical-Techno infusion and Classical/Instrumental music.
Five things people may not know about E.R. Rada-

1) When I was 2 years old and my mom was giving birth to my brother I was diagnosed with a fatal pneumonia and was given 48 hours to live. I am the first person to survive that pneumonia due to a super antibiotic that was approved the day I should have died.

2) My lungs are a third larger than average and have an extra vertebrae and set of ribs.

3) I have a collection of stone figurines of animals that I started when I was a kid. The animal doesn't matter as much as the stone that it's carved out of.

4) I love all things nerdy! Things like quantum mechanics, corny jokes, philosophy, the molecular structure of a Honey Crisp apple all tickle my fancy.

5) I am a gamer. Though don't expect to find many games in my inventory as I buy very few, but will put insane amount of hours into each game. In Skyrim alone I've clocked over 1200 hours of game play with 7 different characters since it's midnight release.

About the Author-

E.R. Rada is a NY native who's mind is in a constant battle with reality and fiction. He's been penning his tales while expressing his innermost demons and heartfelt wishes since he was able to rhyme.

Poetry and fantasy are his weapons of choice as his innermost wish to be a dragon-riding, sword-wielding warrior has yet to come to fruition. E.R. knows there is no time limit on greatness, so he continues to float on his constant state of flux; learning, growing, and improving as time goes on. 

E.R. is a battle worn soldier who will quickly compare apples and oranges, simply because he's told he can't. Never one to conform, he embraces his nerdy/geek tendencies and is well known for creating new and interesting ways to do things (see: stubborn/the hard way). In doing things his own way, he has earned his way through life with plenty of battle scars, knowledge, and memories.
