Days After by Erin O’Kane and K.A Knight

I loved this story. It made all the feels come out. One minute is nail biting, the next panty melting and then the tears. It veered from the norm and I loved it!

Author Lisette Brodey #interview @LisetteBrodey

Please give a warm welcome to author Lisette Brodey

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Thanks for inviting me to your blog, Helle.

I’m originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia. After high school, I lived in New York City for ten years where I worked in the radio industry for quite a while. It’s a long story, but I first moved out to Los Angeles many years ago where I worked for a couple of studios as an assistant. I then moved back East, where I worked as a freelance writer and resume specialist, and have now been back in Los Angeles for nine years.

These days, once in a while, I work as a SAG background actor. Oh, and I write books. And that’s the very short version of my life story.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I started writing as soon as I learned the difference between the lead point and the eraser on a pencil. But I wasn’t always sure what I wanted to write. For a while, I thought I wanted to be a playwright, then a screenwriter. But after writing nine books, I know that writing fiction in the form of a book is by far what suits me best.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current book, Hotel Obscure, is a book of seventeen themed short stories that take place in a run-down hotel in an unnamed city. I really love writing literary fiction and I wanted to work with an eclectic cast of characters and story lines all within the space of one book. It presented unique challenges, but was very stimulating and rewarding at the same time.

One of the challenges, for example, was to make sure that the stories appear in the right order, as some reference events in other stories. Also, I needed to be certain that I didn’t write details in one story that contradicted what I wrote in another. One of the rewards in writing Hotel Obscure was that some of the same characters appeared in multiple stories and I was able to continue seemingly finished stories in surprising ways. And yes, many of those ways surprised me!

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now, I’m editing a romantic comedy and preparing to give it to my editor soon. This is my second RomCom and it takes pace in the same town as my first romantic comedy, Molly Hacker Is Too Picky! That said, this book is neither a sequel nor a series. What is a bit different, however, and definitely great fun, was that I used characters from Molly in supporting roles. But I made very sure that I didn’t give away the ending of Molly.

°

°
Do you have any quirks while writing?

I don’t know if I’d classify anything as a quirk, but unlike some writers, I can’t write with music playing. I have to have quiet so I can hear the words. I also find that I do a better job when I’m awake. Being asleep, however, has its perks: I’ve dreamed many a plot twist and important elements for my current work in progress.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to find inspiration for many more stories, and like most authors I know, I’d like to have a growing and appreciative readership. In terms of my writing life, I’m more focused on the immediate future. I find it too stressful when I think that far ahead. But on a much larger scale, my writing aside, I hope the world will become a better place.

°

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

First and foremost: don’t rush a book to publication because you’re eager to see it out there and to call yourself a published author. Take care to get the best cover you can and have your book professionally edited. I know that it is a financial impossibility for some (not easy for me), but there are ways to work around these hurdles. I know some authors who are able to self-edit very well, but even they have help in some areas to check their work. Do your best. It will almost definitely be a longer process than you expect, but you won’t regret getting it right the first time.

°

°
Do you have anything to say to your readers?

First, I’d like to say that I appreciate each and every person who gives my books a chance. I know there is no book, movie, song, artist, place, food, person etc. etc. that will appeal to everyone. Taste is subjective.

Second, readers looking at my books will notice that I write in several genres, from romantic comedies to YA Paranormal to women’s fiction to literary fiction. Sure, those genres are quite different and the books are too. But at the same time, I have writing styles that are present in every single book. I write character-driven stories and I always have multiple story arcs of some kind. I also like revealing secrets and giving readers satisfying endings.

°

°
Oh, and one more thing: my 1970s coming-of-age novel, Squalor, New Mexico, has absolutely nothing to do with New Mexico.

°
It’s been fun. Thanks, Helle!

Author Adrienne Blake #interview

Please give a warm welcome to Adrienne Blake

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

My name’s Adrienne Blake. Born in London, I moved to the States in 2001 and soon got into my writing groove. I have a number of published books, writing across the genres although right now, I’m loving my UF series. I’ll talk about that in a moment.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

Writing is in my blood – you could bury me deep in the ground away from the world and I’d still be compelled to write stories. I guess it’s a conscious decision to publish – that’s something else, and yes, I always dreamed of people recognizing me as an author. Thinking about it gives me the tingles.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

I wrote a few silly UF shorts. I’d been writing Alien fiction at the time, and my PA, Pike Perrie, said though the old stuff was good, fantasy was definitely my forte. And so it began….

°

What are you working on now?

°

The Misty Cedars series is somewhat unique. It follows the adventures of Holly, a woman who is attacked by a vampire and accidentally finds herself in the land of the supernatural. Mischance follows mischance, and her body changes into a series of supernatural beings as the series progresses.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I edit in red-roller ball. I use a new one for every new book. No other pen will do – it’s a thing.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

°
I want my books on the best-selling shelves of Barnes and Noble. And a cure for cancer.

°

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

°

Stay true to your dream. Don’t be sidetracked by somebody else’s.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

I think they’re wonderful – and love finding out what they want from me. They’re free to drop in to my FB group anytime for a chat. I’m there every day, much more than I should be, along with other authors and friends. Stop by with a coffee.

Teaser

A slight breeze caught her red hair, and she ran her hands through her silky curls, which were sleeker than before. She raised her hands onto the top pane of glass and pushed against the frame, closing her eyes as she allowed the night to circle her body and invade her pores. She felt glorious, and very much one of the living. Surely what Noah had told her was wrong. Not that she thought he would lie to her, but perhaps he was mistaken.

“You’re very beautiful.”

The sudden sound made her start and turn, but she didn’t cover herself up. Holly wanted Noah to see her, just as she was now. She needed him to. At this moment, the only thing that mattered was to feel like a woman.

Yet, Noah never moved from the doorway. His eyes were fixed on her face, but he made no sign of making a move on her. Slowly, conscious of the gentle sway of her hips as she advanced, she crossed the room. Just inches away from him, she stood silent for a moment, her eyes reading his desire, sensing he wanted her as much as she needed to be wanted. But still he did not move to touch her.

Holly cast her eyes provocatively down her body, then with the backs of her fingers, ran a hand down from her shoulder, across her breast, where it lingered on her nipple, then traced along the crease of her bosom, circling back and forth suggestively.

Noah wanted her, she not only sensed it, but she could smell it. The scent of his longing was as clear as if he’d conveyed his desire on a written note. Noah’s pupils were dilated, and she could almost feel his shallow breaths as his own lungs betrayed him.

She took a step forward, and clasping his hand in her own, placed his open palm on her breast. The sense of another’s touch sent a jolt of desire through her body. Holly threw her head back, closed her eyes and gasped. Every part of her, every fiber of her being was hungry for him. Still, Noah didn’t move. He did nothing to remove his hand, but at the same time, made no attempt to advance the situation on his own.

She licked her lips and raised his hand to her mouth, kissing the tips of his fingers and his palm, then when she had kissed them all, she pushed his index finger into her mouth and started to suck it suggestively. Noah was entranced, his own lips parted, and he closed his eyes tight shut, trembling as her tongue worked its magic on his fingers. Holly now moved so close that Noah’s chest hair brushed her nipples, and that small contact sent violent shivers southward, making her pant with bold desire.

Her gaze locked with his, and Holly sensed a new power she knew no earthly human would be able to overcome. She raised her hands to his shoulders, then slowly traced down the outline of his arms, up over the soft hairs on his chest, caressing the circles of his nipples with just the lightest touch of her fingers. Then down and down her fingers crept, like a black widow slowly closing in on its prey. Yes indeed, no human could resist her now. Her hands clasped the top of his jeans.

But Noah wasn’t just any human. In that moment, he brushed her hands aside and put his own on her shoulders, not to press her forward, but merely to keep her from advancing further.

“I’m sorry, Holly,” he said. “But this cannot happen.”

The longing was still strong in her, and she tried to press forward, but his grip was firm.

“No.”

The spell was broken.

Bio

Lisette Brodey was born and raised in Pennsylvania. After high school, she moved to New York City where she attended Pace University and studied drama. After ten years in New York, several of them working in the radio industry, she moved to Los Angeles, where she held various positions at Paramount Studios in Hollywood and CBS Studio Center in Studio City, CA. Back on the East Coast, she worked for many years as a freelance writer, specializing in PR and the entertainment industry. In 2010, she returned permanently to the Los Angeles area.

What genre do you write?

 

That sounds like an easy question but it’s not. I’ve written in several. Putting labels on books isn’t as simple as it sounds. My first published novel, Crooked Moon, could be considered literary fiction or women’s fiction. Some consider my first-written novel, Squalor, New Mexico, to be Young Adult, as it is a 1970s coming-of-age novel. But many have appropriately classified it as literary fiction, and I agree.

My third novel, Molly Hacker Is Too Picky!, is a romantic comedy that is definitely in the chicklit or women’s fiction genre. Currently I’m writing my sixth novel, which is also book 3 of a Young Adult paranormal series.

My seventh novel is partially written, and it is definitely literary fiction. That’s probably the genre in which I’ll stay. But you never know!

~

Have you always wanted to be an author?

 

Ever since I learned how to write, I wanted to, but I wasn’t sure what to write: plays, screenplays, or books. For the past twenty years, I’ve been content to be a novelist.

Tell me 3 things about yourself that your readers don’t know.

 

I have never and would never write a character that is solely me. Not even close.

 

I have a very difficult time reading most books written as if they’re happening in present time, e.g. she walks to the door and answers it.

 

I consider typing the most valuable class I ever took in high school.

 

Tell me a bit about your stories

“I Wish…,” which was inspired by your sunset photo, is the story of a well-to-do woman who lives in a New York City high rise. She is married to a good man, but having focused solely on her children, she is now lost and lonely as they have lives of their own. Every day, she watches the rush-hour traffic from her window, but she dreams of being back in a vacation spot she visited with her family decades ago and longs for the blissful sunset she remembers so ardently.

“May Twenty-Fourth” is the story of two American sisters, Julie and Carol, who travel to England together. Despite the death of her husband, Julie is a happy person. She has many friends and a positive outlook on life. Carol is happy being miserable. She’s a chronic complainer who rarely appreciates anything in life. Julie takes Carol on a trip to London in hopes of bonding with her sister away from the stresses of home. On a bus ride to see some church ruins, Carol makes a life-changing decision that impacts both sisters profoundly.
