Tell us a bit about yourself

Goodness, I’m not that interesting. I’m a half demon sadist who enjoys tormenting my readers with good ol’ cliffhangers and tormenting the characters you love most. Really though, I’m a regular mom who supports my family and does her best to get by. Also, I love people. I love making friends. And I am always willing to offer a cuddle.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, I fell into this career after writing fanfiction for fun. People liked my words, so I expanded and listened to feedback and grew.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I have the most interesting dreams. I take bits from them and pants the rest. I’m all about the pantsing writing style.

°

°

What are you working on now?

It’s a deep, dark secret, but I can tell you this. It will blow your mind.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

LOL. Don’t we all? I dress like a slob and wear free tee-shirts. I also use a ridiculous amount of post-its that have nothing to do with my writing. They are just there, on my desk, where I won’t read them, and they serve little actual purpose.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Justice.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

This is one of my favorite questions. YES! I have great advice (I promise). If you are new to the writing world, do what I and many other authors you love did: post your first work for free on sites like Fictionpress and Literotica. Get feedback. Grow from that feedback (even though sometimes it might be hard to hear). And above all, read Stephen King’s ON WRITING. Best book I’ve ever come across that really grasps the craft.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Gosh, I have so many things I want to say. Thank you, first off, for supporting me. Thank you for doing your own research when things got ugly. Thank you for all the love you sent when my health went to shit. Thank you for the never-ending support. Really, I felt and still feel that love. Thank you for having fun with me, joking with me, letting me tease you. Thank you for joining the Addison Cain’s Dark Longings Lounge so we could get to know one another. Thank you for following me on facebook and subscribing to my silly newsletters.

THANK YOU for being you. Thank you for letting me get to know you.

Authors C.V. Guyer #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

We are a Mother/Daughter Writing duo from a tiny town in Missouri. We write Post-apocalyptic RH romcom and YA Paranormal RomCom. We currently have 10 books out at the moment!

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

(C’s answer)

I think I first wanted to become an author around age 12 or so, I’ve always been a major book nerd so becoming an author was just a given

(V’s Answer)

No, I wanted to be independently wealthy. C made me become an author.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Our biggest inspiration… Probably the Zombie/apocalypse trend that’s going around right now. It got us thinking about how the end of the world would really happen and then we tossed a RH element into it because RH is one of our favorite genres.

What are you working on now?

We are currently working on Low Life at the End of the World, book 2 in our Preppers series. It is a Post-Apocalyptic RH Romcom with a little bit of road trip fun thrown in!
We’ll include the cover and a teaser of Low Life for you.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

(C’s Answer)

Quirks… Well I need like total silence when writing or my brain can’t concentrate. Also. I need snack foods, Sour patch kids, gummy bears, chocolate. Give me all the sweets!!

(V’s answer)

I need snacks as well, cinnamon bears, hot tamales, ect. And quiet, which is a rarity in our house!

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

We hope that when the world ends, we find a nice big fully stocked prepper Compound like our girl Toni!

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Get Good at grammar, don’t expect an editor to be able to fix all your mistakes. And do your research starting out! When your looking for an editor or formatter and type that in to google, don’t use the first ones that pop up. Find one that’s decently affordable and good at their job. Check reviews and read books that the editor has done!
Also, have original ideas. Don’t ever be a copycat.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Make an author’s day, leave a review! REALLY make an author’s day, leave a good review!

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself
Erica Andrews is a mom of four girls and loves coffee, doughnuts and more coffee.
She married her high school sweetheart at eighteen and they’ve been together since she was 16. Her and her husband are the modern day fairy tale. She loves to read, break out dancing and embarrassing her children. So a normal mom. And she thinks her kids rock though don’t tell them.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

And yes I’ve always wanted to be an author. But it took my kids pushing me to take the leap.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

And as for inspiration, I think each book has a piece of me or things I’ve been through in my life.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Quirks? Well….I always have to have a playlist and I always have to have a show that I obsess about to keep me from overthinking things or get stressed.

What are your hopes for the future?

My hope for the future is to show my kids that you can do what you love.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

And my advice would be that always have author friends you can talk to. It doesn’t have to be a ton of friends but having one or two close ones can make all the difference.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Hmm…to my readers? I hope you enjoy the different series that I have written as I love to write every genre. And thank you for your support and happy readings.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am a stay at home mom of two teenage boys. I love coffee and reading (read over 800 books last year) and am a sucker for strong female characters. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Claire from Outlander, and my personal favorite Anne from Anne of Green Gables.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I don’t know that I always wanted to be an author per se. but I’ve always written. Short stories, poems. I’m the girl who wrote a novel when signing her friends yearbooks. It was always just for me… until I got involved in the RH community and received encouragement to share my work.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I am currently writing book 3 of my Thrive series. Titled Hunters of Spring, is the conclusion. it is a suspense story, about a Texan woman surviving a pandemic.
Literally, my inspiration came from a picture on Pinterest— an angel statue with a sad face and arm outstretched.
That statue is part of the second chapter of Reds of Summer when my MC has to venture into the deserted town via the cemetery.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I listen to music while writing… often when reading a word will stick out and I’ll find I’ve zoned out and am ‘writing’ the next chapter of my book.
I try not to read the genre I’m writing … I don’t want to be influenced.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

In terms of writing I just want people to enjoy my books and to enjoy writing them. I don’t expect to make a ton of money or be recognized or famous.
I have at least 4 books planned for next year and just today thought up a new idea listening to Billy Joel. Lol

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

My advice is to put the words on paper. Don’t worry about the fine points, just get your storyline down. The rest can come when you revise. Whether or not you get a lot of readers, any story you write is an accomplishment.
DON’T READ YOUR REVIEWS

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

To my readers: thank you. I am humbled by your support and love for my babies that I’ve shared. You are awesome and I love you. All the words are for you.

Author Gina Manis #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Gina Manis. I am a new published author but have been writing for several years. I love romance books of any genre.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have always wanted to be an author. I grew up loving books and wrote many short stories and poems. But I was discouraged and moved on as I grew up. It was only after giving up my career that I got back into writing. I am making a go of it now and don’t intend to give up.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My inspiration for the series I have first published came from another book I was writing. I stopped working on it completely to write the legend that was within it. I am working on publishing both of the series now with the legend almost complete and the second series about halfway there.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Well I do have other projects I am working on also. I have an earlier series I have just started to get edited as well. It is about a concubine. That makes three projects in the works and one still on hold. On top of that, I constantly am writing down ideas for my future series. Let’s just say, I’m not going anywhere.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I like to write outside when the weather is nice. I live out in the country and it is so quiet here. I love being in the silence and listening to the wind or the rustle of the leaves. I don’t mind the sound of one of my dogs barking, or a chicken chirping, the ducks quaking, or those stingy cows mowing. Maybe its not that quiet but at moments it is and I think that is when i connect most to writing.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I built a business online already once, I don’t see why I can’t do it as an author. My past will see me into the future and I keep goals and plans I make. My five year goal is to have all may series publish and starting on new ones. That would be about 20 bookks published. When I say that number it scares me a little. But I have a good start with about 12 already written. By that time, I plan on having a good team working with me and keep them rolling out after that.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

It’s fun if you love it. I have met so many authors and they seem to be some of the happiest people ever. Take your time and do it right. Let it show in your writing.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I write not to disappoint. My books focus on so many issues and I like to give my character a real person vibe. I show their flaws, their mistakes and then I show their passions and why you should love them. I like to tie into an adventure to explorer, with human growth that can inspire. I don’t know if I meet those demands I put on myself but I hope to get there someday.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am a child at heart, at least that’s how my family always likes to describe me. My friends call me cooky, or the energizer bunny when I get excited. I say that I’m an awkward introvert.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

As to wanting to be an author: I have always wanted to write, at least from the 4th grade. I remember writing an essay on what I wanted to be when I grew up. I put down that I wanted to go to Harvard to become a writer. Haha. A few decades later and a degree from community college later, I’ve published my first book.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The Ghost Dud Series came to me a few years ago out of nowhere after I visited a supposed haunted bar. The characters just continue to grow as I write it.

°

What are you working on now?

I recently finished my second book that I co-wrote with my best friend. It’s in the editors hands now. It’ll be published on my birthday, December 20th. I’m also writing the second Ghost Dud book.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Quirks….do you mean like I have to have a lemonade at least once a day when I’m writing? Nope, not at all.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Hopes for the future. That’s a loaded question. I would love to continue writing. It’d be amazing if I could do this as a full time thing rather than on my days off. Writing is something that makes me feel completed.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

My advice is do your research. I’m still learning. It’s not easy. This is a second job. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Interact with readers, that’s always so much fun.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you so much for supporting me. I really hope that you enjoy my books. It means the world to me when someone says they’ve enjoyed my book. I’ve loved every single one of my reviews, even if they weren’t that great because it makes me want to improve!

I’m Gabrielle Ash. A certified crazy southern chick. I’m loud, random, and extremely quirky. That being said I must have organized chaos in my life. Everything is chaotic but as long as it’s organized we’re ok.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Honestly no. Not really. I took creative writing in high school LOVED it but by time I graduated I wanted to be an editor. Fast forward 10 years and I meet this amazing person named Kat Blak. We start talking and on a Facebook post where it ask you to write a story based on _____ statement. We went back and forth and just kept going on our own. Decided to give writing a go and look where we are! About to release our first book.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Fertility issues play close to my heart. When kat came out with this idea we immediately started writing it because it was something relatable in an abstract sense.

°

What are you working on now?

We just finished The Cure Within. It’s still going through edits and alpha/beta reading. We do have another book in the works but I’ll save that for another day. Just get ready for a whirlwind down in New Orleans.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I MUST have music playing while I write. Also gum or something to chew/snack on is a must have too. I really like having my bestie Kat to talk to as well.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

With regards to writing, I don’t really know. We started this journey as a way to help with our depression and anxiety.

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

I am still learning about the publishing world..so please give me advice lol

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Readers thank you for taking the chance on our book. I hope it’s to your liking. Your support means the world to us!
