Tell us a bit about yourself…

I am a busy wife, mother, grandma, sister, daughter, and friend, like so many others. I live in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario, and work full-time with my writing. As well as adventures on the page, I enjoy adventures in life. I’ve worked with lions and tigers and bears in private reserves, hubby and I moved the kids to a rainforest in Panama, Central America for a year, and when the world allows it, we travel and collect memories. 

I write what I enjoy reading, which means, fantasy/paranormal, low/medium angst, fast burn, and for the conflicts to come from obstacles more than people mistreating one another and being shitty. My characters swear and make rude comments and are quite often inappropriate. I want my books to be sexy and fun… oh, and they’re funny too. 

Have you always wanted to become an author?     

Actually, no. I always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. I was fortunate enough to be able to do that for twenty years and about twelve years ago, while taking a year away from the bustle of north American pressures to always keep moving, pushing, taking classes, joining clubs, I learned to love a good book. 

Having not been a huge reader up to that point, I didn’t take any books when we moved. My daughter, Abbey, was thirteen then and she brought a copy of Twilight. I must’ve read it 15 times (being the only book we had) and eventually, I started wondering about alternative plot directions. I thought, ‘If I wrote a book, my character would’ve said this and done that.’ My muse found me lying in a hammock in a rainforest.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?   

Currently, I’m writing 2 series under 2 pen names. I have the Guardians of the Fae Realms polyamorous reverse harem under JL Madore and the Chronicles of the Urban Druid urban fantasy adventure series under Auburn Tempest. Same writing style, same storytelling, but JL has vivid sex and adult content, and Auburn has teasers and fade to black.

The inspiration for my RH series was being part of the FB group Reverse Harem Readers and Authors. There is a fun bunch of crazy ladies in there who aren’t shy about telling you what they like and want in a book. I was reading RH and wondered why there wasn’t more MM. It seemed to me that if there is one woman and four guys, having them all focus on their female was limiting the sexual pleasures. I watched and when I saw women asking for more MM and more of a polyamorous romance series, I decided to write it.

What are you working on now?   

I alternate between pen names, so right now I’m finishing book 10 in the Urban Druid series A Dragon’s Dare (no sex) and then am starting book 9 in the Guardians series Honor Restored (lots of sex) lol. Book 9 will be the first book in Honor’s harem and the beginning of her story. She’s the third woman in the series to get her mates.

Do you have any quirks while working?   

Not really. I sit. I write. I watch Netflix and Marvel at night to glean ideas. And the next day, I sit and write again. I do have a bit of an obsession about eating M&Ms while I do that, though. Which I’m trying to curb… because hello, I turned 50 this month and my metabolism seems to have forgotten to come with me over the hill.

What are your hopes for the future?   

My biggest hope for the past decade was to retire my hubby from his high-pressure corporate job and be able to support us with my writing. He worked his ass off for the twenty years I stayed home and focused on the kids and now it’s his turn to enjoy freedoms. Goal achieved. At the time of writing this, it’s Thursday, and he’s been retired for four days. Yay! He’s an avid mountain bike rider and is looking forward to spending more time on the trails. I’m so thrilled that my fans loving my crazy stories means I can take the reins for the next twenty years. Also, we have our first grandbaby and are looking forward to spending oodles of time playing with her.

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

Take classes and learn the craft. It doesn’t have to be university creative writing classes but find a guild or critique group and really learn how to craft a great story.

Read tons in your genre of interest. Know what you love to write and know what readers are looking for and find a way to make those two things intersect. 

Drill down to a sub-niche you think is underserved. For me, I love writing paranormal romance, then I looked into reverse harem, then specifically MM/poly, and also low/angst and fast burn. 

Really think about what your brand is… Mine is found family and finding the place you belong. To my fans and followers, I’ll say what I always say. It thrills me to know that my stories resonate with you. I’m thankful 

Join the 20BooksTo50K Facebook group and learn how to make money with your stories. Writing for passion and muse is great but making a living at it is better. 20Books changed everything for me and gives the indies the power to succeed.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?  

To my fans and followers, I’ll say what I always say. It thrills me to know that my stories resonate with you. I’m thankful for your support and read every review, taking comments to heart. Thank you for all the amazing feedback and for engaging with my characters.

Author Zoe Ashwood #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Zoe Ashwood

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Well, I’ve always been a reader. I also have notebooks and little scrap pieces of paper scribbled with terrible snippets of never-finished stories and angsty poems dating back to the 90s when I was in elementary school. But I didn’t set out to be a writer until I had a book blog for a couple of years – and then I heard about NaNoWriMo from another blogger and decided to give it a try. That was in 2015 – but it took me until 2019 to publish my first novel. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Ooh, I’m so glad you asked. The Nora Moss series is inspired by my love of action-adventure movies and ancient civilizations! It’s a love letter to Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, and Atlantis, as well as a steamy love story about a woman who fights for the people she loves. Cursed in Love, the first book in the series, takes place in Egypt – because the Ancient Egyptian civilization is my absolute favorite ancient culture. I had so much fun writing it!

What are you working on now?

I’m writing Captured in Love, which is Book 2 of the Nora Moss series. Nora and her guys are heading to Iceland next! 

Do you have any quirks while working?

I plot my stories obsessively because I hate editing! I also drink a lot of barley coffee with almond milk – I’ve trained my brain to have a sort of a Pavlovian response to it! So now barley coffee means work. It’s a strange but effective little ritual.

What are your hopes for the future?

Well, I’m about to become a full-time author, so my goal is to grow my author career to the point where it’s the primary source of income for our family! I’d love for that to become our reality. I want to write beautiful stories that my readers will enjoy.

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

I would say: be kind. Don’t engage in drama (there’s always drama in the author world) and be a source of kindness and motivation instead. And work on your mindset too! I just started with that – and it’s so important! Other than that, just finish your book and/or series. If you don’t finish the first draft (which will invariably be crappy), you can’t edit it and polish it and make it into a finished product. You can do it! Take that story you love and make it shiny.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Oh yes! Thank you for being here! Another blogger recently asked me about my greatest writing success – and I said it was having actual readers! I fangirl over my favorite authors a lot, so having someone tell me that they loved my books is the best feeling. It’s so awesome to know that my stories are read by real humans. 🙂 

Author Julie Morgan #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author

Tell us a bit about yourself…

USA TODAY and Award-winning Bestselling Author, Julie Morgan, holds a degree in Computer Science and loves science fiction shows and movies. Encouraged by her family, she began writing. Originally from Texas, Julie now resides in Central Florida with her husband and daughter where she is an advocate for Special Needs children and can be found playing games with her daughter when she isn’t lost in another world.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Not necessarily. When I was younger I enjoyed writing poetry and songs. I used to sing them for my grandparents. They pretended to enjoy them. LOL! I actually started writing novels about 17 years ago. Before that, it was short stories and the like. I’ve been published now for 8 years.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m writing two different series right now, both paranormal. One is grim reaper and the other is fallen angels. I’ve always had a love for the darker side of paranormal that involved vampires, shifters, demons and angels. There’s no real inspiration behind it other than my love for it.

What are you working on now?

Dead to the World series and Speed Dating with the Denizens of the Underworld series

Do you have any quirks while working?

I have to have music playing, a snack nearby, and a drink.

What are your hopes for the future?

To reach someone, to give them hope through one of my stories. I’ve had readers reach out that a story brought them out of a dark place before, and it completely touched me to hear that. That’s my goal, is to reach as many people as I can through my words.

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

Take your time and don’t rush. Find yourself a great editor, not someone who claims to love English. Also get a professional cover made. You can go indie, you don’t have to sign with a small press to get your books out there. Figure out what you want to write (contemporary, paranormal, historical, etc) and follow your dream. And never be scared to ask for help.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I love each and every one of you! You are why I continue create adventures and different worlds for us to dive into.

Jeweled Wings by Quinn Arthurs

In a world full of winged warriors, what difference can a wingless girl make?

Surrounded by powerful Valkyries, Emberly’s wingless status is viewed as a curse. She never expected to be more than a slave and a training subject for the warriors. A chance rescue by the Princes of Ardenia changes her life – but is it for the better?
Thrown into a world of politics, legends, and bigotry, Emberly must try to find a way to survive. With the help of the Princes– Suneel, Jett, Blaine, Hunter, and Flynn–she begins to learn not only about life outside of the barracks, but about what it truly means to be loved.

Shadowed Wings by Ivy Asher

I am a latent wolf shifter.
Or so I thought.

Then life as I knew it changed in a flash—or more accurately, an electrocution.

I’ve woken up in a strange place, surrounded by strange people who hate me. They’re in the middle of a war, and I look like I belong on the wrong side of it.

If that’s not enough to qualify as a really bad day, I now have wings and a strange animal to figure out, because it turns out that there’s not a damn latent thing about me.

If I want to live, I have to prove that I’m not the spy I’m accused of being. Then I need to figure out how the fuck to get back home before all hell breaks loose. Too bad my animal has zero interest in working with me unless it has to do with the two hot assholes that lead this rebel group.

I’m on my own, in a place I’ve never even heard of, with threats I don’t know how to defeat. And lucky me, I might as well have a rotisserie chicken living inside of me for all the help my newly discovered gryphon is.

Perfect. Just fucking perfect.

Phoenix Rising by Quinn Arthurs and Harper Wylde

I’d thought it had to be hidden – to stay a secret.
I didn’t know my secret would become the key to my survival.
Turning eighteen and getting accepted into college brings me everything I need to escape from the nightmares of my past but I never could have imagined my nightmares – and dreams – were just beginning. Finding myself thrown into a world of fantasy, politics, friendships, and rules that are nearly impossible to understand, I feel like I’m drowning in a world of shifters I never knew existed. As I struggle to find my place and prevent my nightmares from tearing me apart, I find myself surrounded by an unusual group of sexy men. With Hiro, Killian, Theo, Damien, and Ryder I’m trying to become the woman I’ve always wanted to be, if my past, and my future, will let me.

Author Rachel Angel #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Rachel Angel

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I’m Rachel Angel, and I like writing bold romances and thrillers that has a lot of steaminess, hot men, and strong sassy women.  My books have tons of twists and turns, and usually contain a mystery that is solved at the end.  My neurologist even says that she recommends my books that are especially steamy  because they are a great way to escape and use the imagination. It helps with pain relief and also Alzheimer. 

I am so grateful for my books being used as a way of escape and treatment.  

Also, one thing about me is, I am really the pen name for a million-selling author who writes in many genres. 

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

Yes, I have since childhood.  I wrote fantasy adventure stories with animals as lead. Like Watership Down, but with squirrels.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

I have several series going on right now. For the Ruthless Reign Series, which comes to a close at the end of June, the inspiration is cartel/drug tv shows like Ozark, but here, the lead is a young woman who suddenly becomes the head of her family’s cartel, which had been kept a secret from her. My other series that recently ended is the HOUSE Series, which was inspired by classic murder mysteries, but with a hot Reverse Harem, a will, and a mystery that has to be solved within the will.

What are you working on now? 

I am working on an urban fantasy called Fae-B.I. Series, that has a reverse harm of fae men, with the FMC is a FBI trainee who is trying to solve the crimes around Las Vegas, which seemed paranormal. This is a spin-off series from my Fallen Fae Academy Series with the same characters. The first book comes out in July and is a juicy one, called Fae-ther Issues.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

I tend to write in spurts so I will sit for hours on end to get a lot written at once. This means I have all my snacks, drinks, and even music near me while I write.

What are your hopes for the future? 

To keep on coming out with addictive books for people who love reading steamy romances/thrillers!  I also have a few book series being adapted into tv series or films so we’ll see how that goes. I have some really good producers behind the adaptations so most likely it would happen, even if it takes a while.

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

Write what you love and even if it doesn’t fit the mold of a certain formula with a genre, do it because it may become a new way of telling the story in that genre. My books are a mixture and blend of different genres and don’t necessarily fit into one genre, but the readers who have discovered my books and loved them, it brings them a new enjoyment and escapism. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers? 

Yes, thank you for your support and love!  I appreciate you all!  Because of your support, I have continued writing the kind of books I write.
