PA Yashira Rosado Ortiz #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Well I’m Yashira, I’m 29 and have 2 beautiful daughter’s, a furbaby and have been married for 5 year’s! I love reading and listening to music and have a bad addiction to coca cola lol!

°

How long have you been a PA?

I have been a PA for just a couple of month’s so I’m still learning but have a rhythm.

Example:

°

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

For medical reasons I can’t work and while hubby is working I’m home basically bored, so I thought I love to read and love helping author’s by pimping their work because that’s how I started in this community and slowly went growing into being a PA which for me was amazing and I’ve worked with so many badass author’s!

°

What do you do as a PA?

As a PA I do graphics, TOs, manage ARC team’s, BETA Team’s! I help manage group’s and get more interaction and growth! I work with google docs, forms and sheets I basically do anything the author needs help with!

Example:

°

Do you have any quirks while working?

Well I guess I do try make everything perfect and am always sending my author’s multiple options! I can’t just send 1 of anything it has to be in multiples so that way we can add change or even find the perfect thing for what they need in that moment!

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’m always trying to be better at what I do so for the future I want to keep learning so I can better myself in my field and be able to help many more author’s do what they love which is writting amazing stories for us reader’s!

Example:

°

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Have patience, it’s a big responsibility and make sure you click with the author’s! It won’t be easy and you will have hits and misses but don’t give up on yourself! And only do this is you really love the field and what it represents because if you do it will show in your work and trust me good author’s will appreciate all the work you do for them!!

Don’t be afraid to ask for help, I’ve been blessed to have met so many great people in this community which have become my family, if I’m not sure about something I always go and bug them lol but never be afraid to ask for help it doesn’t mean your weak just means your human!

°

Are you available for new work or booked solid?

Yes I’m always available for new author’s who need help and right now I’m not fully booked!

A Year of Blogging 2019

This year has certainly been one big surprise that kept going. 2018 was the year I fell madly in love with the reverse harem genre. 2019 was the year I decided to start interviewing some of those amazing RH authors. Well that snowballed quickly. I have interviewed over 231 authors, cover designer, models, bloggers, formatters and so on. I’ve also started two groups Soe Delights which is all about RH and menage, and Soe Book Bliss which is every genre. I started the same on Instagram.

I met another blogger, Ira Myriam. We started talking and suddenly we were working together. She is an amazing, generous soul that I consider myself very lucky to know, love you babe! Now Josie Cross PA have joined our madness and I couldn’t be happier *whispers: she’s organized* love you sweetie!

Author Takari Hunter #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I want to state for the record now I’m really horrible about talking about myself. I never know what to say, but I’m willing to try if you’re willing to listen. I grew up in a small town in Midwest USA. Books have always played an essential role in my life. I loved them even before I could read. My parents would give me a new book for successful potty training (embarrassing baby stories lol). As I learned to talk, I began to make up stories to go with the pictures and “read” them to my very attentive stuffed animals. I taught myself to read at 4 or 5, with a little help from my friend Julie—who was a year older than me and was using what she learned in school—was the game-changer.

Fast-forward to the present day, I’m still an avid reader. I typically go through a book a day. I have lived all over the United States but settled back in my home state of Iowa after my divorce. Once my son started school, I knew I was locked in—at least until he graduated from high school. Now that he’s done with that, I’m free to move around again. I have a list of places I want to go to before making any significant changes. I may end up just staying put—it is where my family and my son is after all. Plus, I’m pretty sure my cat, BB, wouldn’t know what to do if he couldn’t police the neighborhood from his window perches anymore.

°

°
Have you always wanted to become an author?

It was definitely high on my list of possible career choices. All of my English type course professors encouraged me to write. I have always written short stories and poetry. It’s my way of journaling. I just never had any clue on how to get started, as far as where to submit a manuscript, finding an agent, etc. This was before the internet, and the unlimited information it provided, and LONG before Amazon came along to give self-publishing authors a platform. I shelved that dream for a really long time and focused on a career in business, until now. *evil laugh*

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I find my inspiration by watching people or from interesting pictures I find on Pinterest. Sometimes, I’ll come across an image that screams really loud at me, it demands to have its story told. The pictures that inspired this current book/series ate at me for months. It wasn’t as loud as others, but it kept pulling me back to it. I knew there was a story and that it would be good, but it just wasn’t forming a clear picture in my head right away. Here’s the original inspiration:

°

°

Beautiful, isn’t it? ***NOTE: I have no rights to this artwork. I don’t know who the original artist is, I found it on Pinterest.

°

What are you working on now?

I’m still working on the Masquerade of Myths series. I need to get Betrayals & Broken Promises as close to perfect as I can before I release it out into the world, but I’ve also started outlining and plot the scenes for books two and three. This is just the first series that will be housed within the Hell on Earth World. There are currently, at least, three more series planned that will pick up the world story arc (it’s a big one) but will showcase a different heroine in each, with lots of crossovers involved. There’s always a possibility there will be additional series added to the world. It all depends on how many it will take to tell the story(stories).

I’m also working on, in the background, an epic fantasy series. It was actually the story that got me back into writing and started this journey for me. I finished book one a while ago but wasn’t happy with the scope of it, so tore it apart. I’m really working on the world-building and character development for the entire cast (there are A LOT) before I start again. Don’t expect to see this one for quite some time. I’m only casually working on it when I have writer’s block for my current WIP.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Hmmm, that’s a good question. I sometimes need music and other times I need absolute silence. The one thing I can’t have is somebody in the house talking. My son has learned to either use his inside voice while I’m writing, or he escapes the house completely when he sees me sit down and pull up my laptop. I don’t think I have anything really quirky though. If something pops into my head, I’ll get back to you.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I want to make this into a full-time endeavor. I’m willing to put in the work and time to make that happen. I’m more concerned with the quality of my stories versus the quantity I put out right now. I want to get to the point where I’m reliably publishing four books per year, one every three months. I’m excited and altogether nervous, but even failure can be a success if you can learn from it and get back up to try again.

°

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

Well, I’m new myself, but I’ve been around the community for a while. I think my best advice is:

DON’T GIVE UP. This is a skill that needs practice and lots of work. Nobody starts off perfect, nobody ends up perfect either. There’s ALWAYS room for improvement.

FIRST DRAFTS ARE NOT PRETTY OR PERFECT. They’re not supposed to be. Every time you revise it, the words will come together more, and it’ll look better and better.

EDIT. Hire an editor. Yes, this will be one of the most significant expenses you’ll incur on your book, but if you find a good editor, it’s worth the cost. Self-editing is essential, but you won’t get it as clean as a professional editor. You read what you think you wrote, not what you actually put on the page. Find an editor who is knowledgeable and interested in helping you grow as an author. Ask them questions.

Ok, that’s enough advice from me for now. 😊

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

To all my future readers: Thank you! Thank you so much for taking a chance on me by reading my book(s). When I write, it’s with the hope that I’m able to tell you the story well enough that you join the people in each book on their journeys.

I love hearing from people about anything: send a picture you think could inspire a story, how you related to something I wrote, even constructive criticism (don’t be an asshole) is welcome; tell me what I’ve done right or what I could use improvement on, tell me about your day. I’m a tad socially awkward, and small talk is not a skill I’m good at, but I’ll do my best to form a connection so I can speak more freely with you.

Takari’s Hunters

Betrayals & Broken Promises (Masquerade of Myths Book 1) by Takari Hunter

Being a chameleon demoness already made things tricky, but did it need to be this difficult?

All Dahlia wanted was her freedom, but first, she needed to buy out of her promised bonding, a promise that was made for her before she was even born. Almost a century of trying had taken its toll, and she’d done things she wasn’t proud of. Lost parts of herself along the way and flirted with the darkness inside her.

And it flirted back.

She told herself it would all be worth it in the end, but before she won that battle, everything in her life systematically blew up in her face—one piece at a time. Blaming it all on the beautiful, egotistical vampire who showed up in her life would be easy, but it started long before he arrived. With his help, she might succeed, but Dahlia wasn’t sure she could trust an outsider—not even one sent by Lucifer himself.

Dahlia was standing on the brink of having everything she’d ever dreamed of, but she also risked losing it all.

Was her freedom really worth the cost?

Bio:

USA Today bestselling author (November 2017), Dionne Lister is a Sydneysider with a degree in creative writing, two Siamese cats, and is a member of the SFWA. Daydreaming has always been her passion, so writing was a natural progression from staring out the window in primary school, and being an author was a dream she held since childhood.

Unfortunately, writing was only a hobby while Dionne worked as a property valuer in Sydney, until her mid-thirties when she returned to study and completed her creative writing degree. Since then, she has indulged her passion for writing while raising two children with her husband. Her books have attracted praise from Apple iBooks and have reached #1 on Amazon and iBooks charts worldwide, frequently occupying top 100 lists in fantasy.

Dionne works as an editor, has published a YA epic fantasy series called The Circle of Talia, and is currently writing The Rose of Nerine fantasy series and the Paranormal Investigation Bureau cozy mystery series. Shadows of the Realm has been translated into Spanish and Italian, and is available at all ebook stores.
