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.

Author Rachelle Bonifay #MoonlitFalls #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Rachelle Bonifay

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I am a Southern girl through and through. I have lived my whole life in Alabama and at this point don’t have plans to leave. I am still teaching during the days and hopping to use the summer to knock out several first draft projects. I have two dogs: Gracie, a yorkie mix, and Luna, a Coton de Tulear/Havanese mix. When I’m not writing or reading I enjoy spending time outside: swimming, hiking, or gardening.  

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have been writing stories since high school but never thought what I wrote was worth sharing. Luckily the MDL ladies are helping me see otherwise. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Last November, one of the girls from the Silver Springs neighborhood set up a fanfiction challenge for National Novel Writing Month. I decided to join and have fun creating stories again. When the Moonlit Falls competition opened, I honestly didn’t plan to apply. One of the women in charge reached out to ask if I was planning on submitting anything because she had read my fanfiction. (Thanks Dolly!) After looking for some photo inspiration, I found a girl who had a story to be told and decided to shoot my shot. Luckily it worked in my favor this time. 

What are you working on now?

I am getting the final edits of Moonlit Garnet finished as well as working on Briar’s story for the Fearless anthology (MF contemporary Romance) and want to finish All for Being Normal (PNR MF romance) this summer. 

Do you have any quirks while working?

I love to watch crime shows or medical shows while I’m writing. I can’t watch trivia shows or I forget to write and just answer all the questions. 

What are your hopes for the future?

I’m hoping to be able to publish multiple books a year and to one day publish a co-write with a more established author. 

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

Ask all the questions. Every author I’ve reached out to has been more than willing to help recommend editors and proofers and to explain the process. I’ve also had some offer their groups to find alpha, beta, and arc readers. So don’t let the fact that they are established intimidate you, they remember what it’s like to be just starting out. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you so much for coming on this journey with me and supporting me in this new adventure even if it leaves me feeling like a stress muffin stuck in a corner some days! 

Author Roseyk Klayborn #MoonlitFalls

Please give a warm welcome to author Roseyk Klayborn

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Roseyk Klayborn lives in Colorado with her dog Bella, who loves to go on long walks in the woods. She also whines a lot when her human doesn’t walk fast enough.

Roseyk prefers staying inside working on one of her many hobbies, often reading or writing.
She spent most of her childhood with a book in one hand, a notebook in the other, and a pencil in her ear.

Ballroom Dancing took over much of Roseyk’s later teenage years before she rediscovered her love of writing and entered into a life changing contest to become an author in the Moon Dust Library world.

Now, you will find Roseyk trying to write like crazy, researching, doing a ton of procrastinating, and sharing lots of random memes.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

When I was around eight years old, my brother and I took some writing classes. After that I hardly went anywhere without a notebook and a pencil stuck behind my ear. I don’t know that I really thought about becoming an author, it was more that I had all these friends in my head who wanted to come out and play.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Umm. My Book Bestie and I were tossing out ideas when I found out they were looking for authors. I don’t really know what my inspiration is for this book.

What are you working on now?

So much! Moonlit Danburite is my main focus, plus I’m doing a charity anthology in September, so those are the main two. But I have several ongoing series that will eventually be published.

Do you have any quirks while working?

Not that I know of? I haven’t really thought about it.

What are your hopes for the future?

To write lots of books. I just have so many ideas, and even if nobody likes them, I still want to get them out in the world.

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

Learn as much as you can, find other people who you can get support and encouragement from, and try not to stress too much. You’ve got this.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for taking a chance on me. I hope you enjoy the ride.

Author Ruby Wilder #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Ruby Wilder

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I worked full time as a chartered accountant until the end of Septemember when I decided to make the terrifying leap and quit my job to become a full time author. I’m married, and a mum to a grown up girl and three german shepherds, the youngest is 13 weeks old.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes. I penned a book when I was 18 years old, but I didn’t dare do anything about it because it was so racey and I was a good girl! I wish I had a copy of it now.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Halloween and mythology are the main inspo. All three books in the trilogy build up to Samhain – I love anything spooky or weird.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on a supernatural thriller about a girl who was murdered in her past life and is haunted by visions of it. She tries to solve the crime so she can move on with her life. Its very creepy and dark

Do you have any quirks while working?

Putting things in excel and not word! Once an accountant, always an accountant…

What are your hopes for the future?

I have given myself a full year to devote to writing – I hope things work out so I don’t have to go back to an office job again. But even if I do, I wont stop writing.

Pre-order

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

Don’t let anyone put you off. You write your book your way and get it out there. Stick at it. Even 100 words a day is progress

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you! It’s hard to believe people want to read my stories, and I’m overjoyed that they do. There are some wonderful people who say the nicest things and I just want to keep writing for them.

Author Rhylie Matthews #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Rhylie Matthews

Tell us a bit about yourself

I have no idea how to answer this question. >Horribly awkward laugh< 

But I guess that’s as good a start as any right? I’m Rhylie, the socially awkward writer that tried bribing her husband into telling her what to say here. As you can tell, it didn’t work. 

Honestly, I love doing a bit of everything. I have two businesses; a creative development company and a jewelry/swag shop that I run from home these days. I have too many cats, a Great Dane, and two redheads under ten who are home full time. It’s basically just chaos in my house at any given time. 

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, I’ve always loved writing, but psychology was a really close second for me. I started college at seventeen and majored in family psychology. Later after I got married and as a stay at home mom I found myself being pulled back into the writing world and thriving on all the creativity that came with it! I loved it! Now, after several years of working behind the scenes with other authors I’m writing again myself.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

The inspiration for Trust in Lust came from a conversation with a close friend about all the things I wanted to read in books but couldn’t find. I love books with odd combinations and you’ll laugh, but honestly I have the ‘What If’ syndrome. Bad! I want an incubus warlock mixed with a leprechaun! But what if this? What if that? What if? What if? What if? I really don’t know how to stop. One book turned into a series of five planned. Chaos. Madness. Mayhem. Trust in Lust, Book one of The Lust Series was born! 

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on The Bully King anthology now in which all proceeds will be donated to an anti-bullying charity. There just seems to be so much hate within our indie community right now and so many are suffering because of it. Whether it be silently or openly, it’s affecting so many. We wanted to help. We wanted to do something to speak out, to take a stand, to give something positive back. 

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Coffee. I’m a night writer at heart so that’s usually my go-to thing, but I like music as well. I guess my only quirk would be having someone else in the room? I always feel weird when people watch me write so I tend to hide in the bedroom with the cats. Oh yeah, the cats; there always ends up being at least one cat under my laptop too. They never go away. 

What are your hopes for the future?

Pipeline goals-I’d love to be a successful author one day! I’d love to be able to write full time but I also love designing/making jewelry and creating swag for my authors. I’d miss it. I’m pretty happy where I am right now and it keeps me really busy! So I’d have to say just people enjoying my writing would be my hope.

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

Believe in yourself. Even if it’s hard and some days you can’t; do it anyways. 

Write. Even if you think it’s bad, write it anyways. First drafts are supposed to be atrocious.

Find people to have in your corner! Alpha readers, beta readers, other authors, all these people help you along the way in more ways than you can imagine. Their support, encouragement, and feedback is gold. Love them. Cherish them. Keep them forever.  

Not everyone will like what you write. It’s a given. Everyone has different taste and unfortunately some people aren’t very nice about it. Learn along the way. Accept that critical feedback and breath through the nasty. 

There will be challenges along the way that make it feel impossible. Remember why you’re writing. For you. It’s your dream. 

Do you have anything to say to your readers? 

Thanks for not letting my spastic personality run you off? Lol No, I love everyone I’ve met so far on this journey and my first book isn’t even out yet. It’s been amazing. They are amazing! This last year has been a hectic mess and they have stuck with me and are just as excited as I am. That’s more than I could ever ask for and I’m so grateful for each and every one.

Author R.L. Caulder #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I am a native Floridian but you’d never guess it by my pale ginger complexion! I am engaged and getting married in August, 2020. I have a full-time adult job as a property manager of rentals but I hope to become a full time author within the next few years! I have two fur babies, a ginger kitty named “MeowMeow” (My fiance named her) and a staffordshire pitbull named “Winrey”.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have always had a passion for reading, but honestly never thought I had it in me to write a book! The fear of putting out something that just flopped is what stopped me from doing it prior to now. It has been a struggle to push through that mentality of not feeling as if my work is good enough, while completing my first book.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I don’t even know where any of my ideas come from! I was sitting on my couch one day when the idea for Desolation struck me, so I began typing out a small outline in the notes app on my iPhone. It only grew from there and before I knew it, I had wayyyy too many notes to keep up with and had to transfer it to a google doc. The characters and the world had my mind in their clutches and they wouldn’t let go!

What are you working on now?

Book two, “Detonate” in my Darkness Rising Series! I also have a pending co-write on the side.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I have to be listening to music in the background and the genre changes as my scenes do! I feel so much inspiration while I write from the emotions certain songs give me.

What are your hopes for the future?

To become a full time author by the time I’m ready to start having kids!

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

I’m still quite new myself, but I would absolutely say, make sure you are surrounding yourself with people who want you to genuinely succeed. You will doubt yourself enough, without having the whispers of negative people in your ear.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I’m not sure I have many followers yet, but thank you to everyone who has supported me on my journey of putting the voices in my head onto paper! It’s been a whirlwind, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Author R.M. Walker #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m British and I live in a small town in the South West of England. I have a fabulous hubby, two amazing girls, and a black cat that thinks he’s a panther.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

The short answer is yes. Ever since I can remember I’ve loved books and stories. But it was something that wasn’t encouraged and I honestly never thought I’d be able to call myself an author. I still pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The inspiration for my Freedom Series is deeply personal for me. Matty is a girl who has grown up believing she’s bad and less than everyone around her because she’d unable to live by the rules surrounding her. It’s set in a post apocalyptic commune and is based heavily on my experiences growing up in a cult and overcoming cognitive dissonance.( Something that occurs when someone with deeply entrenched, indoctrinated, beliefs is faced with an indisputable truth that is opposite to the belief currently held. It’s a form of denial, but much stronger and causes a lot of distress and anxiety.)

What are you working on now?


I’m working on Liberty, the second book in the Freedom Series (Due February 29th) And I’m also plotting out a new series, The Barmecide Society.

Do you have any quirks while writing?


Not a quirk really, but I prefer to write the first draft long hand in a notebook. And I have to have a certain pen and paper. So yes, a but odd, I guess. lol. 

What are your hopes for the future?

That my family will be safe and happy and I that I can continue to write the stories that people like to read.

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

Write what you love. Write what you want to read. 

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you so much for taking the plunge and reading my stories. I’d still be dreaming of publishing if it weren’t for you.

I’ve always loved writing but hadn’t really considered becoming an author until I saw all of these amazing indie authors working hard and publishing their stories.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The Wanted was inspired by Snow White, but my current WIP is inspired by demons and succubi.

°

What are you working on now?

It’s a underworld political reverse harem following a sassy succubus named Shera as she navigates the rough waters of the demon hierarchy.

Rosemary A Johns Author #interview

Please give a warm welcome to Rosemary

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi and thank you for having me on today! I’m Rosemary A Johns – USA Today bestselling author of urban fantasy romance and RH series REBEL ANGELS, REBEL VAMPIRES, and REBEL WEREWOLVES! I write snarky angels, savage vampires, and epic battles. I’m a fantasy fanatic and paranormal anti-hero addict.

Cut me open and I bleed Smells Like Teen Spirit. I spend my time falling in love with the rebels and anti-heroes fighting their way out of my head…and onto the page.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes! I’ve always been passionate about reading and writing. I was first published professionally aged fourteen. I started with short stories, then plays, and finally novels!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series is my USA Today bestselling complete five book enemies-to-lovers series REBEL ANGELS, which is about an epic war between angels and vampires with an anti-heroine at its heart. It’s a sort of Buffy meets Lucifer, where vampires and angels are locked in a deadly war. Half vampire/half angel but raised by humans, Violet is caught between both sides…who want her back.

I love rebels, dark vampires, sexy angels, and heroines who aren’t perfect but real. I was inspired by the idea of creating a new twist on the myth of angels and vampires, as well as the fact that there are so few British anti-heroines.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m working on the next series in my Rebel Verse, which is a supernatural world of vampires, shifters, angels, Fallen Angels, and fae, set in England: REBEL WEREWOLVES. It’s a shifter romance with rebel Omegas, incubus princes, and sexy Alphas.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I used to write screenplays, so I see what I write happening in front of me like a film. Along with that, I know the music that each scene needs because I’m a music fanatic. So, I either write with that song on loop, or in total silence.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’m loving writing the Rebel Verse, and there’s a number of exciting new Rebel series coming out this year. I’m looking forward to new readers discovering these worlds.

°

°

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

Only write what you’re passionate about. Publishing is a difficult business, but if you start from the point of truly caring about what you write, then it’ll see you through.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thanks for being awesome! I hope that you enjoy escaping into my Rebel worlds. I always love hearing from readers and appreciate their support. I have a readers’ group called Rosemary’s Rebels, which is fun and includes teasers and news on all my releases first, so please join us!

BLOOD GODS: REBEL LEGENDS

Author Rozie Marshall #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Rozie Marshall. I have a BA in European history. I write Paranormal Reverse Harem at the moment. I’m also working on a post apocalyptic pirate RH, and a Zombie RH… plus I have several series planned for the future. I am polyamorous so the reverse harem wasn’t hard for me to imagine. I also write some erotica and BDSM but they have yet to be released.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve been writing for over 15 years in the hopes of being published. I would lose myself in historical details and the plot would suffer. I switched genres to Paranormal and the ideas and plot’s just flew out. I have wanted to be an author for a very long time, so now that I’m published it’s a dream come true.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Most of the characters are based off people I know and love in real life. Some taken straight from my relationships with alternat names. The story itself was based on recurring dreams I kept having, that I thought would make a great storyline. I also took inspiration from an image I found online and that dictated the number of men in my main character’s life.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I am working on the fourth book of my current series. A standalone post apocalyptic pirate RH. The first book in a Zombie RH series. Also two cowrites with other authors. Plus when I have the time I will outline and do character bios for future series I have planned.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

My characters talk to me and tell me what to write. I tend to listen to opera while writing. I’m OCD so I tent to organize the hell out of everything on my desktop in neat little rows or columns. I tend to work best at night when my children are asleep…they tend to distract me when I try to write in the day.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I would love to be able to make writing my full time job. I have several other series planned that I would like to get out in the future. I hope to get at least a small fan base that would make going to book signings a thing I could do. Really thought my biggest hope is that people enjoy my books.

°

°

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

Never give up, even if it takes years. Never read a 1 star review it will only cause you to doubt yourself. Always believe that you are where you should be. Never compromise your story for someone else’s opinion. Remember always that it’s your voice that should be heard, and people want to hear your voice.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you so much for all your love and support. I hope to continue growing as an author and transporting you to the world’s within my books. I hope to be around for a while…for the love of sex and sin, and from the bottom of my heart, Thank you.
