#FromHeliosToHollywood #Podcast S02E01 – The One With Cassia Brightmore

Weeeeeeeee’re Baaaaaaaaaaaack!

Good evening, party people!  The From Helios to Hollywood podcast is officially back from hiatus with an episode I’ve had banked for better than 6 months.  lol  Author/model/editor Cassia Brightmore joins the podcast to talk about her two dark romance series, how she got into modeling, and a refreshing take on editing from the other side of the fence.  We had an awesome chat, shorter than our usual podcast, but awesome nonetheless.  🙂  Enjoy!

HAPPY TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!  This morning we have a bonus episode for your listening pleasure.  This was originally scheduled to go up a week ago, but thanks to all sorts of technical difficulties, it was hung up, but it’s totally worth the wait!  This is definitely one of my favorite podcast convos so far.  As of right now, it’s only up on YouTube (still having an upload problem on SoundCloud and iTunes), but I will update this post once it’s available elsewhere.  Enjoy!!!

About Give And Take

Vampire Favors 2.0 - Give And TakeAddison Fitzpatrick settled her first favor, a cataclysmic repayment that ended with hundreds of Pushers dead. Three months later, she receives a letter from the Vampire who betrayed her trust, asking her to save him.

The cryptic letter makes one fact perfectly clear – she has to find Lachlan, assuming he’s not already dead. In doing so, she is forced to do the one thing he asked her not to: involve Cannon.

But the search for Lachlan comes with a price. Addison is forced deeper into her debt, just as her life is put in jeopardy when a new danger surfaces. One from her past, stirring up inner demons threatening to take her back to hell.

Now Addison must find a way to kill a supernatural being she’s never even heard of, all while protecting her heart from its love for Lachlan, and its confusing stirrings toward Cannon. It was so much easier to hate the vampires.

Things are not always what they seem in Addison’s world. The fight to save Lachlan will test her strength, her conviction, and her skill as a Pusher. Will she survive unscathed, or will she let the demons win?

About Emily Cyr

Emily CyrEmily Cyr is a stay-at-home mom turned writer. She holds a degree in middle grades education with certification in English and social science. She has always had a love of all things paranormal and fantasy, but it wasn’t until Emily’s husband said the words, “Why not?” that she considered putting her thoughts and ideas into the book, The Lightning Prophecy. This trilogy was just the start for Emily. It seemed to open a creative door that had been locked.

Emily has always been an avid reader. Through reading came her love of writing. The more she read, the more she knew she wanted to create her own world. Many of her first works were fan fiction.

Emily and her family currently reside in Jacksonville, Florida. She has an incredibly supportive husband. They have two sons, ages 2 and 3. Somehow, even with the demands of being a parent to two little boys, she finds time to escape to her fantasies and write them down.

About Pay For Play

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00015]Alphachat.com – That’s all the info you need to get off in the privacy of your own home, car or hell… even in a public fucking library.

Whatever gets you wet.

I never expected a million-dollar business to come out of touching myself on camera, but when you add in nine of your best guys, the women become hungry and the money begins flowing faster than you can spend it.

You want to see me take my shirt off, I’ll strip it off nice and slow, making you sweat in anticipation.

You want to see me touch my dick, I’ll stroke every hard inch of it, getting you off before you can even feel it creeping up on you.

Your money.

Your Alpha.

Your demand.

Now I just hope playing for her on camera will pay off enough for me to claim her outside of the computer screen.

#FromHeliosToHollywood Podcast S01E01 – The Maiden Voyage!!!!

The first podcast is done!  However, until the first episode is approved by iTunes, this is the only place you’ll be able to download it.  I will update this post later today with the links for the other services as soon as they’re ready.

We will also be moving the posting date to Mondays.  As we are just getting this up and running, it’s a learning experience, and the thing I learned is that editing 2+ hours of raw podcast takes a lot longer than I anticipated.  When all was said and done, the podcast was cut down to just north of an hour and a half.  So, going forward, we will record on Friday nights (most times) and post on Monday mornings.  🙂

Also, we will NOT be uploading to SoundClick as originally planned.  The files are too big and they dont allow 3rd party hosting.  So, I will be exploring other options for where to upload it.  For right now, here on the blog, iTunes, and YouTube will be it.  🙂

Hope you guys like it!
