Author Elizabeth Clare #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

°

Have you always wanted to become and author?

Yes, I have. I have loved reading since I learned and actually started writing for Mills and Boon. Despite the fact that they asked for a synopsis of four of my stories I never got accepted for publication. Then I was too busy being a mum, it wasn’t until my children were older that I started to write again. Joining a writing group was the catalyst that finally put me on my publishing journey. I wish I had started when I was younger but the time wasn’t right. Now that I no longer work, I am throwing myself into my writing and absolutely loving it.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My writing group tasked us with coming up with a post-apocalyptic story and my muse ran with this idea. Dragons have always been my favourite supernatural creature so it made absolute sense that the stories would contain them. I started with a vague idea outline of the story and as I wrote, it grew from there. I didn’t start with the idea of it being a trilogy but I have really enjoyed writing about the dragon clans and their Innamorata’s.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Well I can’t say too much as it is a work in progress but it has nothing to do with dragons. Although I am sad The Dragons Clan Series has come to an end, I am also glad to be writing about something else. It is paranormal and if it is liked could turn into a duology. I am very excited as it is something different. Here is a teaser with a huge clue!

°

°

Of course, my muse is already thinking about the next book and I will be returning to dragons!

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I have changed a room in my house into my ‘writing room’ this helps me to be disciplined, and because everything is set up and ready, I have no excuse not to write. I like to listen to the radio while I write and couldn’t function properly if I didn’t have a window to gaze out of when I’m stuck for a word or just need a break.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I really hope that readers will continue to like my stories so I can keep on writing. I knew I would love the process of making up a story but not how much. It brings me great joy to sit down and let the words flow, especially when the characters take over and unexpected things start to happen. I want to be a writer for as long as people will read my stories.

°

°

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

You need to be determined. For me the easiest and most enjoyable part of the whole process is writing the first draft. When the rewrites start, the editing and the actual publishing that’s when the determination comes in. Make sure you find a good editor who you connect with, also a book cover artist who can bring to life your vision for the cover. Find people you can trust to read your story and give you good advice and encouragement, especially in the first draft. Always remember that all authors at some point hate what they have written, and doubt that they are capable of writing a sentence, let alone a novel!

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Without the readers and the people in my group I wouldn’t be here. Their support and enthusiasm mean everything and I can’t thank them enough. I hope they will continue with me on my journey as I strive to improve, and write stories that they will hopefully embrace and enjoy.

Please come and stalk me if you want to know more, it is always wonderful to have new members.

Taming The Ringmaster by Erin O’Kane and @K_AKnight #newrelease

Happy release day, Erin O’Kane & K.A. Knight

🎪Taming The Ringmaster🎪

(Her Freaks Book 2)

After the bombs, the world changed. Alcide’s Circus is proof of that. Freaks, outcasts, abominations, they have been called it all, but they found freedom within the big top to embrace themselves and each other. They have never been slaves—until now.

Last Stop is a mecca in a destroyed world, filled with riches and treasures from the times before, yet under the decadent, utopian façade hides a darker underbelly, and when the circus rolls into town, things start to get interesting.

Fate has its cruel eyes set on Rhea, and will test everything she thought she knew, not only about herself but her family as well. Sometimes you have to lose everything to find the truth about who you are, and what you are capable of.

When the Circus falls and the freaks are forced to fight for their lives in the dust, will there be anyone left to pick up the pieces?

Author S.E. Isaac #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is S.E. Isaac. I am a mother of three amazing boys. I am a US Army veteran. I live in Sin City with my two youngest sons (my oldest is in college! 😊 ), my fiance’, and my two pups. I enjoy playing sports, writing, and going on road trips.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Being an author wasn’t at the top of my list of “Things I want to be when I grow up”; however, I have a son with autism & schizoaffective. He doesn’t do well with babysitters so I’m unable to work because of that and the school calls me frequently so I can’t work during school hours either.

Writing has been my passion since I was around eight years old. I hit major depression around this age, and I turned to writing as an escape from reality. That’s why my author logo is “Escape Reality”. I hope my words can help readers take a step out of their world and into another world without worries of their daily lives or struggles they are going through.

Sorry. I’m rambling.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I am currently working on Motorcycle Club books. They were inspired by my two author friends, Eden Rose & Josette Reuel. I have never written MC books so I accepted the challenge and dove in. Super nervous to see if readers like it, but I have my fingers crossed.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I currently have six books that I am working on at once. They are all of the romance genres but different sub-genres of romance. (i.e. paranormal romance, MC, Reverse Harem, etc.)

My next release is “Wolfe Brothers” written by myself and Eden Rose. Releases December 3rd on Amazon.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Ooo. Good question. Quirks? Not really. I just like to sit down and go with the flow. I’m what many would call a ‘pantser’ writer. I just go wherever my brain and the characters take me.

What are your hopes for the future?

My hopes for the future in my personal life are simple; I hope for good health and happiness for my family and friends. For my professional life, I just want to become a millionaire :-p Okay. Maybe not a millionaire, but I would like for readers to know my name and enjoy my writing.

°

°

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

New authors, keep your head up. The publishing world can be challenging. Things won’t be a cake walk but with determination and hard work you’ll do amazing!

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Readers,

You are all amazing! Thank you for taking the journey with authors like myself. It is because of all of you that us authors keep moving forward.

XoXo,

S.E. Isaac

Author Crystal North #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey, thanks for having me. My pen name is Crystal North and I’m 32, but I don’t feel a day older than 21 – well, until I have to exercise or bend or something and then it’s a whole other story!

I’m from the U.K. and I live in the Devonshire countryside but not too far from the sea, which I think is the best of both worlds. I absolutely love it and I wouldn’t swap it for anywhere else in the UK (although I would love to live abroad).

I have a BA Hons degree in English Language and English Literature, and I also have a PGCE in English alongside ten years secondary school teaching experience, which is what I’m currently doing. I’m married to my sister’s husband’s brother (it’s not as weird as it sounds, but I like messing with people!) We have a baby boy who is fifteen months old, and a furbaby puppy. Writing is very much a huge part of my life, but I have to squeeze it in around all of that other craziness!

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

It sounds cliché but I have always written, so I consider myself a writer. When I was small I used to make up stories and as a teenager I wrote lyrics, stories, poetry and an entire book which I’m relieved to say will never see the light of day because it’s saved on a floppy disk somewhere, never to be recovered. I never planned to be an ‘author’ and I still consider myself to be a person who just happens to write. Maybe when I have more books out I’ll consider myself an actual author? Who knows!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Hehehe which one? I’ll tell you a little about the inspiration for my Goddess series that I’m working on. It’s set in the valley of a place in North Devon that I love to visit, and it’s completely inspired by nature, the elements, crystals and magic – all things that are dear to me. I’m so excited about this series but it’s a long way off being done because I want it to be perfect!

°

°

What are you working on now?

I have so many works on the go. I’m obviously working on the sequel to Vengeance, which is called Atonement. I’m finishing off my Christmas release. Then I have a massive calendar of releases for 2020 which includes two collaborative series / anthologies that I’m super excited about (something for Valentine’s Day and later in the year a time travel RH novel as part of a collaboration series). I’m going to be busy!

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Not really, but I do write entirely on my phone, so that’s pretty unusual. Vengeance was a big book too, so I feel like it was an additional achievement. I work best under pressure and working to a deadline and seem to do crazy things like wake up in the morning with an idea for a book, contact my cover designer and ask her to make me something, and then commit to writing and publishing in under 7 days. I’m crazy! I don’t know how my team put up with me to be honest!

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope that I can grow my following and continue to share my work with my fans. I would love to have more people read and review my works from around the globe, and the dream is to just keep being inspired enough to produce new works. At the moment, that’s not a problem, but I’d love to have the time to get every idea down on paper!

°

°

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

Never read a negative review (says she!). You can’t be everything to everyone, but if you do you, and are your own unapologetic authentic self, you will find your tribe and your followers. What we do isn’t for everyone, but our fans love it, and that should be good enough for us!

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

So much! Where to start? Thank you so much for reading and loving my work. They’re truly labours of love for me, so the fact that you like them so much too means a lot to me! Thank you for taking the time to review, promote and recommend my work – that means more to authors than you’ll ever realise! And finally, thank you so much for your patience, support and encouragement while waiting for the next one!

The Dark Crystals – Crystal North Fans

Author Kendra Moreno #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

This question always makes me scramble to find things interesting about me. lol. so, I’m an author and I write in multiple genres including, but not limited to, Dark Fantasy, Steampunk, and Paranormal. I’m a mom to a crazy active toddler boy and a Great Dane. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and Marketing. When I’m not writing, I’m usually doing other things like designing, painting, crafting, and even doing those fancy designer cookies when I feel up to the task. lol. Umm, I’m also a certified scuba diver and I got to dive with sharks before which was awesome.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always been a writer but I never understood I could pursue writing as a career until I started college. I always wanted to be an author, but I never had it up there as what I was gonna pursue. Would you believe my first major was zoology? lol. Eventually, I got smart and realized I wasn’t chasing my dreams and I dove in head first.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

So my current one is my fairytale retellings. Vicious as a Darling is book 1 in the Daughters of Neverland series, which is a spin off of the Sons of Wonderland series. I’ve always been a fairytale retelling fan, especially of the darker spins. I love horror so the idea was to thread horror elements into the story while it could still be considered Romance. And so these Horror Romance fairytale twists were born. 😀 For Neverland, I wanted to do something completely different from anything I’ve seen before (there are so many retellings) and I think everyone is really gonna love the horror twist on everything.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now, in addition to working on Vicious as a Darling, I’m also working on a sequel to my Steampunk RH, Clockwork Butterfly. It was meant to be a standalone but due to popular demand, Vic and her guys are getting another adventure. I’m also working on a new steampunk series that’s menage. The Prequel, Gears of Winter, released in an Anthology at the beginning of November. Poppy Woods and I are also working on a secret project I think everyone will love.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I’m not sure if I have any unusual quirks. My playlists might be considered that I guess. For every book I write, I have a specific playlist for it. But I’m a fan of instrumental music. So I have a lot of battle and war drum music in my playlists. My favorite is Audiomachine! They produce some kickass stuff. ::whispers:: I listen to it at full volume in my car with the windows down and I get the best looks when they hear war drums.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I think the hope is to always take my passion and turn it into something that not only supports my family, but that I can show my son one day that I achieved my dreams. Right now, my next goal is to be able to claim International Bestseller. I also just want to keep writing things I love.

°

°

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

There are three important things when publishing your first book. Cover, Blurb, and editing. Without a good cover, people might not look at your book. We’re all guilty of judging them by the covers and a great one will sell the book easier. If the blurb doesn’t catch their attention next, they might bypass it. If you’re not great at blurbs, there are services that will help or even asking other authors or friends for advice is fantastic. And never skimp on editing. It’s a chunk of change but it’s worth it to put out a quality book rather than having reviews come in claiming the editing was bad or to get quality notices from amazon. If you do those three things, readers will definitely want to read your story and will come back for more.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Without my readers, I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am. I was so worried when I started publishing that I was too weird, that my stories were too different, and y’all embraced me so hard and have never let me go. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking around, for trying new worlds I write, for reviewing the books when they come out. Because of you, I able to keep doing what I love, and that makes me so happy. Let’s all stay a little mad, and a whole lot of awesome!

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am a former aspiring screenwriter who is a wife, mom to one son and avid reader. I have lived in southern America my whole life and some might say my accent borders on the ridiculous! I’m a trivia geek and my favorite spot to be at is the beach.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve written in some form since I was six. My favorite thing as a child was making up creative stories, usually fantasy. High school was all about poetry and college screenwriting. Writing is my escape.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Two things actually lead me to this book. I started reading reverse harem about a year ago, mainly bully. I was addicted but noticed it always took place mainly in high school setting. Being older I craved an older set of characters so I wasn’t Mrs. Robinson when I was crushing on the guys. Secondly I worked in corporate America for ten years in a more senior role towards the end. Women need more respect and acknowledgment. Less than five percent of women in our country are in an executive level position such as CEO or COO. My goal was to make a comment on this divide by establishing a FMC looking to be the head of a company. We need more women to be the boss.

°

What are you working on now?

My series is three parts so I am finishing the first book and rapidly heading into the next book.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Yes I am completely OCD in so many ways. I need to be alone, in a silent and still environment. Yet I have an appointed playlist for each chapter I’m writing. I need sexy music when I write sexy, angst when I write angst and empowering when I write empowering. I’m also weird about making sure I have two beverages (usually bottle of water and cup of coffee) within reach.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Truthfully I hope to be an author readers follow and get excited when they see a new release from. My main goal is to be well received and respected.

°

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

Never be afraid to reach out! I reached out before I started writing. This is such an amazing community to be apart of. Authors will help you, you will be taken into a group and you need only ask questions. Everyone is here to help. Develop a squad, your squad will be your best friends and lifelines. Also, ask! If you don’t understand how something works just ask. There are so many wonderful people to help. Do not be afraid to ask for help.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Yes, I love you all so much, none of this is possible without your support. You bring the joy everyday when I need it. I’m so immensely grateful for you to read what I write. You’re my heroes.

Please give a warm welcome to

How long have you been a PA?

Started July 2019 (about 4months)

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

I have always loved the idea of working as an assistant, but it wasn’t until recently that I found my true passion for being a personal assistant for authors. I have always been an avid reader so being able to not only support those authors but keep the chaos of their lives to a minimum is a perfect fit. The satisfaction of pulling off everything from a book release party to organizing the details of a book signing trip is unmatched. So while I haven’t always wanted to be a personal assistant for authors, I am so glad that I found this perfect fit.

What do you do as a PA?

I do many things. My main thing is to help keep authors fix their Chaos.

What do you do as a PA?

As a PA, my responsibilities are numerous. My main job is to fix the chaos of being an author and keep them sane! Lol. I think that each experience is different but I focus on creating teams of individuals to promote and push forward authors on their current projects, organize their goals moving forward, and keeping them motivated.

Do you have any quirks while working?

Yes, I have spreadsheets to organize spreadsheets

What are your hopes for the future?

To work with more authors and to help my authors grow and be successful.

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Build a relationship with other PA’s around you it is always great to share tricks and have someone who you can lean on for help if you are not sure how to do something.

Are you available for new work or booked solid?

I am available for new work.

Cubs for Rent series by Charity Parkerson #amreading @CharityParkerso

First Loser (Cubs for Rent Book 1) by Charity Parkerson

°

Same situation. Different man. It’s a beautiful mess.

After falling for a male escort, and losing him through his own stupidity, Henry meets Tanner. Tanner is tall, dark, and handsome. He’s also young, wealthy, and doesn’t need Henry at all. But Henry is right back in the same boat he’s been in for years, paying someone half his age to spend time with him. Even though Tanner keeps refunding his money, Henry can’t let himself believe Tanner wants him for real. His mistrust is making him miserable, but Henry doesn’t know how to stop.

As one owner of Cubs for Rent—a company that rents men for dates, repairmen, or simply for company, Tanner doesn’t need anyone to take care of him. When he met Henry, Tanner’s only intention had been to get the man out of his friend’s hair. Then, Henry kept calling and booking time with Tanner. Tanner kept accepting and feelings he didn’t want grew. Henry is sweet and insecure. He’s gentle and awkward. Henry is everything that Tanner finds irresistible. It’s too bad Henry is also too blind to see Tanner’s interest as real, because Tanner is tired of trying to convince him.

When Tanner pulls away and meets someone his age, Henry will have to come out of his shell and step up his game. Hopefully, he’s not too late.

**Please note** Cubs for Rent is a Sugar Daddies’ spin-off and is best enjoyed when read in order.

Next Best Thing (Cubs for Rent Book 2)

°

When artless meets masterful, it’s a battle of opposites attract. The prize is a lifetime of happiness.

Orion is caustic and bitter. He doesn’t like people, nor does he enjoy their company. There’s nothing Orion needs beyond a good book. But Tucker keeps coming around and Orion doesn’t understand why he doesn’t want it to stop. As one owner of Cubs for Rent—a male escort service—Tucker already has too many men chasing him. Orion has no intention of joining the flock. Life doesn’t care what he wants.

When Tucker met Orion, Orion accused him of being a liar and shut him down on every level. For someone who’s used to getting any man he wants, Orion is an irresistible challenge. He’s awkward and cranky. His head is always in the clouds and Tucker wants Orion with every fiber of his being. But this might be the one time Tucker doesn’t get his way.

Orion has already suffered enough heartaches in his life, but Orion wants Tucker. That’s a truth he can’t shake. For once, Orion might have to set aside his books and live. How terrifying.

Always Loyal (Cubs for Rent Book 3)

°

Every day Loyal watches him. The desire gets bigger with each passing moment. It’s only a matter of time before it explodes.

After an accident left Loyal in a wheelchair, he’s spent his days fighting to regain the freedom he’s lost. As much as he needs help, Loyal doesn’t want to be pitied. When a blast from the past volunteers his time to make Loyal’s home wheelchair friendly, Loyal has every intention of staying out of Toby’s way. He knows Toby could never forgive him for the past. Loyal never intends to fall back into the same role he played with Toby for years. Life doesn’t care about Loyal’s good intentions.

Toby has known Loyal most of his adult life. For a long time, he considered Loyal his best friend. There’s no way he’ll turn his back when Loyal needs him most, even if every second in Loyal’s company completely breaks him. Unfortunately, the more time Toby spends with Loyal, the more he can’t escape the truth. Loyal will always be the only one for Toby.

As one owner of Cubs for Rent—a business that rents men for dates, home repairs, or simply to keep someone company, Toby has countless men vying for his attention. Loyal is the only one he can’t shake. They’ll have to face the past and all its secrets if they hope to find their way. Tall order doesn’t even begin to describe that endeavor.
