Author Kira Roman #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Kira Roman

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a stay at home mom of two toddlers. My daughter is 4, and my son is 2. I spend most of my time taking care of them. My husband is gone a lot because he’s in the Navy! 

I met him when I was 15, so we’ve been together a long long time.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

You know what’s funny, I used to write random stories in my journals, but I never thought I’d actually be good enough. In 2017 I discovered reverse harem, and was hooked. I started reading one book a week, using my husband’s money every chance I got, then I started KU, and OMG. It changed my life. I went through like 5-7 books a week. At some point, I thought “Hey, i might be able to do this.” I had no idea where to start though! It’s been a very long journey, and not all of it was good. But I’m so so glad I took that leap! 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

The Devil’s Sin actually has a sad start. I grew up in a close knit family, and I had a cousin that was as close as a sister my whole life. We were only 3 years apart, and spent our whole lives growing up together. In 2019 she passed away. I felt like part of me left with her. I spent a lot of time working on a different story, and one day… The Devil’s Sin just came to me! I knew I wanted to write something that could express the heartbreak I was feeling, while also giving readers a decent story. 

What are you working on now? 

Stolen Succubus. Book 1.5 in the Dramonia series. The main female character is different from book 1, but her story is just as important. 

A Touch of Violet. That’s my naughty contemporary RH romance lol. 

Do you have any quirks while working? 

I need a drink of some kind. Preferably wine. And my notebook. I have the memory of a goldfish. 

What are your hopes for the future? 

USA Today Best Seller! That would be a dream come true. But my ultimate goal is to earn enough to support my family. My daughter has special needs, and always will. I want to make sure she has a good life, and her future is secure. 

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

Oh man. Well, first I’ll say be optimistic, but cautious. Find someone who has published before, and ask for advice. There are SO MANY steps! lol. 

Do not let the 1 star reviews get you down. Someone will always have something bad to say. I like to read the 1 star reviews of authors I personally like. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers? 

You guys are the best. Seriously. If I didn’t have followers, mini fans, and supporters, I’d have no book! So Thank you! I honestly never thought ANYONE would like my work enough to follow me, but the fact that so many do, blows my mind!

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.

Pre-order Soulbinding Fate by #SamanthaRose

Soulbinding Fate (Sky Serpent Clan Series Book 3)

The world has never been a kind place. It’s filled with disaster and people that are just out to get you, at least, in Tara’s experience.

Unless you get them first.

Tara likes to live on the edge, keeping people at a distance away from her heart for the sake of her sanity. It’s safer that way, but it’s also, lonely.

But when she becomes mated not to one, but to three men, she has an unexpected change of heart. She sees her future for once, instead of her own downfall and she doesn’t want to let go.

When it comes time to take love by the reins, will she risk it all for love and fully allow her mates that she always yearned for in? Or will she do what she knows best and kick them to the curb when things get tough?

Pre-order Satisfying Lost Dreams by #SamanthaRose

Satisfying Lost Dreams (Broken Soul Kingdom Book 1)

Escaping from his problems on a new strange world seemed like the best choice but starting over is never easy.

When Eros runs into an Earthen female named Dani during a hunting accident, he tries to avoid her at all costs, but sometimes fate has a funny way of turning the tables.

Challenged by the unexpected emotions she brings forth inside him, Eros begins to learn that his only chance at safely keeping his heart intact is making sure Dani stays by his side.

What happens to him is unexpected, and astounding—an encounter that started off as a craving for a forbidden being turns into something more… a new hope for finding someone special, to embrace the mate that he never dreamed would appear in his lifetime, much less on a world not of his own…

Pre-order Juniper’s Peril by @RowanThalia #JaricaJames

Juniper’s Peril (Academy of the Elite Book 2)

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, they say.
Well, I, Juniper Nevels, am about to test that theory, like it or not.

During my time at Rose Haven Academy, I’ve had quite a few ups and downs. On the plus side, I’ve finally been assigned the team of my dreams. On the downside, our accidental slip into the supernatural has brought an evil presence out of hiding.

My team and I can’t seem to catch a break. As if dealing with spirits and spooky nightmares weren’t enough, now we are facing an even stronger presence. It’s known as the Human Vampire. This sinister being was once an elusive serial killer and now his sights are set on me.

He’s after me, and he’s hungry for blood.

But even as our lives get darker, the bond between my four guys and me grows stronger. Now that our team is all finally on board, we have a real chance at proving to the academy that we’re worthy. And we plan to take our spot among the elite. 

Defying everything we’ve learned about the supernatural so far, which isn’t much, the specter continues to torment us. After a few close calls in which we barely escape with our lives, we decide enough is enough and look for help outside of the academy. Because what Rose Haven doesn’t know won’t hurt them, right?

Our future with the RH Elite forces and our lives depend on whether we can banish this presence for good. Can the tricks we’ve learned on the outside save us, or are we headed into certain death? 

The Human Vampire must be sent back into the shadows.

The real question is, can you ever banish evil for good?

This is book 2 of 4 in the Academy of the Elite series, a full genre change and rewrite for the previous book, Into the Shadows.

This book is intended for readers 18 and up, and includes content that may be triggering for some readers, such as violence.

Pre-order Lola & the Millionaires

Pre-order Lola & the Millionaires: Part One by Kathryn Moon

Lola & the Millionaires: Part Two

Lola Barnes only wants one thing, to get her life under control. No more chasing alphas who abuse and toss away betas like her. No more hiding in her cousin’s apartment licking wounds that won’t heal. Armed with her dream job and her less than dreamy apartment, Lola is ready to start a new chapter of her life without alphas. But that’s easier said than done when one stumbling incident after another leads Lola closer to an alluring pack of captivating men.

These alphas are everything Lola dreamed of, but they already have an omega—a playful male model who won’t stop flirting with her. And Lola is only a beta, one who comes with deep scars and an unshakeable aversion to alphas and their powerful presences. If only she could resist their perfect beta, Leo, whose patience and determination to see her heal breaks down one wall after another. 

When the alpha who all but destroyed Lola tries to start a game of cat and mouse that’s all claws, the safest place for Lola may be the one she’s most terrified of, in the arms of an alpha pack.

Pre-order Painless by @CrystalAshBooks

Painless (Steel Demons MC Book 4)


Love is never painless.
Especially when you love dangerous men.

My heart wants the most dangerous one of all–the golden man with the beautiful smile. Gunner strikes enemies as ruthlessly as his falcon, but when it comes to us, he keeps me tortured and begging for a swift end.

He crushed me once, then kissed hope back into me. His indecision will be the slow, painful death of me. I’m done waiting. I’ll make him put me out of my misery, or pull the trigger myself.

If dealing with him wasn’t enough pain, I’m also getting my Steel Demons tattoo from Shadow.

The scarred, quiet man has been coming around to me slowly. My new cat companion is obsessed with him. If my time with the Steel Demons has taught me anything, it’s to trust the instincts of our animal guardians.

They’re intelligent. Sometimes, they even talk to us.

I don’t expect my first tattoo to be painless. But can I heal my artist from the pain he keeps locked inside?

Sons of Anarchy meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this dystopian reverse harem adventure! Painless is the fourth book in the Steel Demons MC saga. This series is full of kindle-melting steam and dangerous men who take what they want. Proceed with caution if easily offended.
