Author Madeline Fay #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Madeline Fay

A little bit about myself

I love long walks on the beach, bubble baths and of course sushi… Wait! My bad! Wrong interview. Ha ha all very true though.

Oh man. How does one describe themselves? Well, I help plan weddings as my day job and at night in the shadows I like to pretend I’m batman. I have an obsession with batman and cheese. I’m just a regular odd ball. I practically live in a zoo with my two dogs, three cats, four chickens, two ducks, and my husband who I love dearly. I try to find humor in everything. I like to think I’m a hippy at heart since I love everything seventies related, velvet and colors. Right on!

°

°

Did I always want to become an author?

Yes, in high school I wrote a lot of short stories. I didn’t dream that big when it came to my writing career. I put it all on the back burner because to be honest I didn’t think I was good enough to become an author. I switched through careers, trying to find that one thing that makes me happy. Bringing my characters to life brought me so much joy to have others step into the worlds I create. Best feeling ever.

°

°

Inspiration

I have always had a thing for the paranormal. If I could, I would start a paranormal investigation team and go ghost hunting. Reading other authors romance books, it clicked one day that I need to write something along the lines of dark yet still love-y dove-y. In came Eve, one of the main characters, she is strong and powerful. She can overcome any obstacle in her way, but still needs that one guy who will challenge and provide strength for her. Actually, the character John Wick was a lot of inspiration for Killian, another main character. Silent, moody, strong, and a bit on the dark side.

°

°

Working on right now

Currently working on book two of the Hell’s Apocalypse series, hopefully coming summer 2019. I have another side project of a college romance. Not revealing too much right now. Trying to write both books at the same time is a challenge but so rewarding. Also a RH Fairytale romance is in the works, it’s going to be amazing!

°

°

Quirks for writing

I have to have music playing when writing. Doesn’t matter what songs, from heavy metal to rap. All depends on the scene. Charlie Puth is a big involvement when writing, he sings through most of my chapters. I also need to have a relaxing environment, from my coffee shop in town to my home office with my sage and crystals. I’m all about the positive energy.

°

Future plans

Don’t plan but fly off the seat of my pants. One step at a time, but I hope to continue to write all different kinds of genre books.

°

°

To new authors

To all new authors out there… Keep writing. Never give up, never surrender. Write your freaking heart out even when you feel hopeless and doubt yourself. Your book will make a difference in someone’s life.

°

To my readers

To my wonderful readers: Without you, none of this would have happened. You bring me great joy when I read your reviews. You might be a fan but I’m a fan of yours too. Thank you so much!!

My monsters will have to wait, he will regret the day he crossed me.

Are you scared of the dark?

You should be.

Author Reese Copeland #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Reese Copeland

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey yall! I’m Reese! I’m 26 recently married and I live in Arkansas with my husband, my cranky cat and a suspiciously creaky house. I love gardening, cooking and collecting crystals. My favorite color is sage green and I’m allergic to avocados and I’m really sad about it lol. #RIPGuacamole.

°

°
Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have! I used to be really shy and ghostwrite for others for fear of being judged for my overactive imagination. I only recently got the confidence to step out of the shadows and I’m so excited!

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

So Winds of Change came about after way too many glasses of wine and a Lord of the Rings marathon. An I began thinking why should all the main characters be boys?! Look at Xena she’s a total badass and she never NEEDED a male lead for jack squat! The more I thought about it the madder I got lol and then I watched Harry Potter and snapped! Hermione is a total hero I would read a series based around her. So Bela and her story were created.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Oh man, soooo many things! Haha, I can never stick to just one. I’m working on an awesome cowrite for the summer with some of my writer besties. I’ve just launched a business to help new and established authors with their business/admin side of thing. It’s called Writers Guide to Freedom and I’m super excited about it! The next Hearts of Solara is on my radar and the outline is basically writing itself. I’ve also explored some spinoffs for the series! So please if you have ideas or suggestions let me know, I am always looking for inspiration.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Ha! I feel like I’m a walking quirk. I do my best writing when House Hunters International is playing in the background, and I’ve got a great playlist blaring. I know that sounds odd and my husband is always like how can you possibly concentrate. But for some reason, it works! Like, I can’t hear myself think really so the words just flow out of me.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I just want to be one person’s favorite author, that’s enough for me. If I can help the indie community to become more respected that’d be awesome too! I’m always looking forward to the future, that the best part about the future, there is always something more to look forward too!

°

°

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

Ooh ok, two things:

1. Write and create for you. I don’t care if the story has been done a bazillion times. If you have a story to tell..tell it! No one is going to tell it quite like you, so just write for you! Don’t worry about what the audience may say or your peers. You do you boo!

°

2. Take your time researching and vetting the members of your team, whether they be you PA. publisher, editor, ANYONE who has anything to do with your brand needs to be vetted by more than just word of mouth. If you don’t feel comfortable looking into business and people in depth, check out Writers Guide to Freedom. We’ll handle the real world while you create the story.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I am so grateful for each and every one of you! I hope that you’ve found a little of Vika’s bravery, Bela’s heart and Helena’s strength inside of you. Thank you for taking this ride with me, I cannot wait to see where we go next.

When The Dead Have It Easy by B.L. Brunnemer #newrelease

°

***Disclaimer:*** The Veil Diaries is turning into New Adult from this book on. Which means I recommend the 18+ age group from now on. Adult situations, graphic descriptions, and foul language will be in the books from now on.

°

°

My name is Alexis, Lexie to most everyone. And I’m a Necromancer. It’s not as much fun as it sounds but that’s not the problem this time. I haven’t seen anyone but Miles in the last month since New Orleans. Talking on the phone? Yeah. Well, except for Zeke. A few text messages was all I’ve gotten. Until now.

°

°

We’re going on the guys’ yearly climbing and camping trip. With all of our secrets out, the tension between everyone is high. Everyone is pissed at each other and I’m just trying to keep my head above water.
But it’s time for a decision. Who am I going to be with? Will I end up with anyone? Will our family stay together?

Author Charity Parkerson #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Charity Parkerson

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m Charity Parkerson and I’m best known for my MM romances. Over the last fourteen years, I’ve written over 200 books. It’s my addiction.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always loved to write, but like most people, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I just started writing one day and never stopped.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Since I’m currently working on the 15th book in my Sugar Daddies series, I honestly can’t recall what inspired me to write the first one.

°

What are you working on now?

I have two books going at the same time: Sugar Enforcer and Salty Baby.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I like for it to be completely quiet. It’s possible I get distracted easily, lol.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to see my books become a movie. That’s my dream.

°

°

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

This is a business. You have to treat it like one or you’ll easily get lost in the sea of books available. If you love writing, take it seriously.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I love you all SO much! You’re the reason I’m allowed to keep doing what I love every day. Thank you.

Digital Artist Imaginary Rosse #art #interview

Please give a warm welcome to digital artist Andreea Grigore

°

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

My name is Andreea, and I’m a digital artist based in Bucharest, Romania.

°

°

I’m a very melancholic person, daydreamer and I take my energy from the times I get to be alone with my thoughts. I’m a crazy cat lady, currently having 3 cats, but also happily married! *wink*

°

°

How did you become a digital artist:

°

My journey started back in 2004, when I first started playing around with Photoshop.

°

°

I found it fascinating to be able to blend together different images and create something that comes out of your imagination. It was like creating a different reality, in which I got to express my dreams, struggles, and so on. I’ve come a long way, but there’s still a lot left to learn.

°

°

What is your inspiration for your art?

°

I love princesses, witches, warriors, fairytales, mythology, glowing stuff, magic… So I take my inspiration from anything around me that has this elements. There’s a lot of talented photographers out there that are very inspirational, movies, stories. They blend in my imagination, and I create from the stories they blend into.

°

°

Do you sell your art?

°

I’m currently not selling prints, but my works are available for licensing.

Most of my work can be tweaked or sold as a whole to authors, artists, etc.

Author Eve Langlais #interview

Please give a warm welcome to New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Eve Langlais

°

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

Not much to tell, lol. Married with 3 children. My life is pretty boring which might explain the writing, LOL.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

Yes and no. As a teen, I was a voracious reader, and that continued into my twenties. I just didn’t have time to write. Then I became a mom and had even less time. But I finally made myself give it a try in my mid thirties after my husband dared me.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

LOL, which one…My mind runs too fast to keep up sometimes. I have all kinds of ideas, triggered by the silliest of things, and usually starting with the question, “What if…” I am really excited by an upcoming series called Chimera Secrets. A top secret medical facility is making monsters but that doesn’t mean love isn’t in the air 😉 Book one, A Nurse for the Wolfman is coming in June. I also have a spin off to my Bad Boy series, called Killer Moms with Soccer Mom releasing in May.

°

°

What are you working on now?

°

A dystopian romance with hints of paranormal… I won’t be revealing it until Summer for a 2020 release. I do have four books planned for it, maybe more if I fall in love with the world and can’t leave.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I really like to be quiet. No music. No television. Just silence so I can hear the voices.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To write something epic enough it gets made into a cool show or movie on Netflix. LOLOLOL.

°

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

°

The biggest thing is finish the book. Without the book, there is nothing.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

LOVE YOU! LOL. Seriously, readers are the reason I dive into these wild and strange worlds.

°

°

Bio

°

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Eve Langlais is a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance. She likes to blame her twisted imagination for her sarcastic sense of humor which tends to heavily influence her stories. She enjoys writing about strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters that need the right woman to temper their wild side–and unleash the lover. She loves to write, and while she might not always know what her mind is going to come up with next, she does promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because she believes in a happily ever after.

𝗕𝘂𝘆 𝗟𝗶𝗻𝗸: mybook.to/deathsapprentice

𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗯𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗴𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗵𝗶𝘁 𝗯𝘆 𝗮 𝗯𝘂𝘀? 𝗪𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘂𝗽 𝗮𝘀 𝗗𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗵’𝘀 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗲, 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁’𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁.

I already know how crazy that sounds. Having spent 18 years being able to see the dead, I’ve managed to deal with a lot of unusual things in the world. I even learned to accept my strange, if not slightly annoying, ”I see dead people” ability. But the one thing that tipped me over the edge? I can’t drink coffee in the afterlife.

I know what you’re thinking. Surely things can’t get any worse than that? Well… I also have a rival apprentice who despises me, a quarterback ghost who won’t leave me the hell alone, a sexy angel determined to take me out on a date, and a silly little crush on my new boss.

°

°

Yes, you read that last part right. I, Sacha Grey, have an aimless crush on the Grim Reaper, and no, he isn’t a hooded skeleton clutching a scythe. He’s a gorgeous man in a tailor-made suit and every word he utters fills me with desire…just like the others do, despite my best efforts to resist them.

Unfortunately, there’s a mysterious darkness spreading through the human world, and Death has tasked me with putting an end to it. At least, that’s what I tell myself, as I quite possibly make the worst decisions of my entire life…

Author Serena Nova #interview

Please give a warm welcome to debut author Serena Nova

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

My name is Serena Nova, and I’m 28 years old, have two cats and a boyfriend. I’m Dutch and live in the Netherlands. I’m a creative person that likes to read, write and cuddle her boyfriend and cats. I mostly wear two different coloured socks and I love summer! And I published my first book this year in March.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

No, not really. I just like to talk. I always wanted to be in the publishing business and after a few dips in my life, I decided to start writing and loved it as much as reading that I kept going. That was roughly a year ago.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

I think my crazy brain. The ideas just pop up in there and I just start writing. I also have a lot of nightmares which gave me good ideas too and sleepless nights.

°

What are you working on now?

Currently working on book two in the full blood series and another project that will drop before book 2 in my first series. But it is an undies destroying story. Or in this case my own.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I like to wrap myself in warm clothing and put on my over headphones and ignore the world. But other quirks, not that I know of. Maybe making weird faces while writing?

What are your hopes for the future?

°

That I’m still writing, bringing out new amazing worlds for the readers to disappear in. That’s what books are for me, a place to go on an adventure!

°

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

°

The best advice I have is what another friend and author told me. She said, “not everyone likes chocolate”. Meaning not everyone will like your book. And that is okay, it’s the same that you don’t like every book that you read. And just keep on creating those amazing worlds, keep writing!

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

Mostly just thank you for reading, for enjoying the worlds I put out there and for just being you!
