🌟 Kell Inkston 🌟

Bio:

Just a quick heads up: I’m one serious werido, so be prepared for strange and mystical tales of whimsy and ultraviolence when you crack open one of my texts. Magical ponies and stupendous manslaughter go hand-in-hand, I tell you; it’s literary justice!

I have tons more coming in the months and years ahead, so if you’ve been enjoying my work, I’d encourage you to +Follow me to get regular updates on my activity. It won’t give you enough intel to triangulate my movements and capture me, but it will definitely tell you when the next book comes out. I think that would be for the best, because anyone who’s been kidnapped would tell you it’s not all that exciting.

I mean, unless you kidnap me and take me on an all-expenses-paid vacation to Disney World or something. I could deal with that I bet.

My hobbies and stuff include: running, birds, eating ramen noodles, spending time with my horrible dogs and super-cool loved ones, and writing stories that tear out people’s internal organs and force them to send me emotional emails.

🌟 Jade Waltz 🌟

Bio:

Jade Waltz lives in Illinois with her husband, two sons, and her three crazy cats. She loves knitting, playing video games, and watching Esports. Jade’s passions include the arts, green tea and mints — all while writing and teaching marching band drill in the fall.

Jade has always been an avid reader of the fantasy, paranormal and sci-fi genres and wanted to create worlds she always wanted to read.

She writes character driven romances within detailed universes, where happily-ever-afters happen for those who dare love the abnormal and the unknown. Their love may not be easy–but it is well worth it in the end.

🌟 J.A. Cummings 🌟

Bio:
J. A. Cummings was born in Flint, Michigan and was raised in a nearby town called Clio. Appropriately enough for someone growing up in a place named for the Muse of history, she developed a passion for reading and the past that continues to this day. Her love of poetry and storytelling quickly followed.

Her life has been one of numerous false starts, unexpected endings and fascinating side trips that lasted far too long. All of that chaos has informed her writing and improved her understanding of what it means to be human, both the sorrow and the glory.

She still resides in Michigan.

Bio:

An avid reader of fantasy and science fiction novels all of my life, I began writing The Guardian’s Apprentice in 2002 and did not finish until 2010. I live with my family in rural Kentucky, along with our six cats. When not acquiring more cats for our plan of world domination (cat armies are terribly hard to train), I enjoy spinning stories from the wisps of magic around me.

🌟 Serenity Rayne 🌟

Bio:
Hi I’m Serenity Rayne and I love to write paranormal stories. My first book out Hide Little Wolf is a dream come true. I’ve read a ton of books over the years , I’ve always felt they were missing something. So I was encouraged to write the book I’ve always wanted to read. In real life I’m a mom, wife and outdoors woman. I love supporting and being supportive of others. You’ll find in my books that the female characters are strong independent women that don’t lose their bite no matter what is thrown their way. I hope you enjoy reading it!

🌟 Skye MacKinnon 🌟

Bio:
Skye MacKinnon is a USA Today & International Bestselling Author whose books are filled with strong heroines who don’t have to choose.

She embraces her Scottishness with fantastical Scottish settings and a dash of mythology, no matter if she’s writing about Celtic gods, cat shifters, or the streets of Edinburgh.

When she’s not typing away at her favourite cafe, Skye loves dried mango, as much exotic tea as she can squeeze into her cupboards, and being covered in pet hair by her two bunnies, Emma and Darwin.

🌟 Sam Hall 🌟

Bio:
I grew up in that bit of Australia you saw in Crocodile Dundee. Yup, I have seen saltwater crocs in the wild, have held a koala (the 70s, when stressing wildlife for the kiddies was still cool) and have swatted an insane number of hand-sized spiders (they think I am their queen and are always wherever I am!). I have a gorgeous child with ASD, a super supportive, truly awesome partner and so, so many animals. Seriously, there is double the number of pets to people.

🌟 Erica Woods 🌟

Bio:
Erica Woods is an animal loving, coffee-addicted, chocoholic who lives in Norway with two fur babies of the purring variety and a hubs of the supporting, slightly growly variety.

When she’s not writing (which is seldom) she can be found clinging to her hubby like a koala bear (yes, she’s needy) with abook in one hand and some kind of snack (most likely chocolate)
in the other.

Besides being crazy about animals and obsessed with all things romance, Erica likes to be near the ocean, draw, fantasize about
life on foreign planets, and tease her hubby until he chases her around the house while she squeals.

Fun times.

🌟 Gene Stiles 🌟

Bio:
International author, Gene Stiles, a Michigan native, moved to Simi Valley, CA in 1963. His first publication was at age eleven when the Los Angles Daily News (then the Valley News and Green Sheet) and the L.A. Times both wrote articles on a young poet selling his work to buy a Mother’s Day present.

An avid researcher, his interests include mythology, world religions, archeology, geology, paleontology, lost civilizations, science fiction and the 2012 phenomenon which are the basis for his Colony Series of novels, Colony – Atlantean, Colony – Neander, Colony – Bloodkin, Colony – Seeds of War, Colony – Nephilim and the upcoming Colony – Olympian.

Growing up an outcast in his family, he lived much of the story in his first novel, To Walk the Winding Road – A Story Of Abuse And Survival.

At age seventeen, he started a three-state wide non-profit organization called Teens, Inc in the hopes of helping other troubled teens like himself. As an adult, he continued his devotion to kids by opening teen-oriented businesses including two arcades and three teen nightclubs – which are the sources for his book Phenomenon – The Xenon West Story.

He is also a martial artist and major karaoke junkie.

He lives in Missouri on the land he and his late wife, Dianne, cleared together and in the house the two built alone and with their own two hands. She promoted him, believed in him and without whose inspiration none of his books would ever have been printed.

Author Ariz Brune #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Oh, dude, this is weird. I don’t like talking about me. But let’s see what I can come up with that won’t bore you to death. Haha. I write steamy paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I’ve gotta say, though I’m an author, I’m a reader first. I love to read. What I read varies with my mood. I may be in the mood for Stephen King or Anne Rice one day and Genevieve Cogman or JK Rowling the week after. Whatever I pick up almost always has to have some sort of fantastical element (with or without romance): magic, mysticism, and far-fetched creatures. Oooh! And I love a well -written gorefest and action scenes.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have, actually. I was the odd kid that liked school. If the teacher announced an essay, I was the weirdo in the back internally squealing for joy. Well, unless I wasn’t allowed to be creative with the assignment. Life just made me wait and grow up a little before I could reach that dream, but dammit, I did!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Life. My current series is about a group of family and friends who each have their own problems to deal with and a bigger problem that affects more than just them. And as life goes, when you find your click, your tribe, you know that you can handle whatever comes your way—even if you don’t necessarily get the results you wanted.

°

What are you working on now?

At the moment, I have a couple of things going. I’m working on book 3 in my series, The Coverton Chronicles. I also have a side project going that may or may not ever see the light of day. Ha. It’s a co-written work, and we’re still trying to smooth out the details. The other author and I wanted to see if we could actually write something worth a damn together, and so far, so good. We’ll just see how everything goes between now and then.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I don’t know that they would be called quirks, but when I write, everything has to be set just right. For example, my coffee cup to my right, a bowl of mixed nuts or cashews to the right, music for the mood, and no one else around or my brain just stops. I can’t focus, and the brain will enjoy a long walk in the woods all by itself—or some other random “WTF, where are you going” adventure.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to keep writing and creating characters that people can resonate with on some level. I know the feeling all too well of connecting with a book, a character, a problem and thinking, “Holy shit! I know how that feels.” Those emotions, that connection, they’re profound, and they reassure us that no matter what happens to us individually, someone, somewhere can see the deepest, darkest parts of who we are, even if they didn’t know they were looking.

°

°

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

Newbs. Ha. I am a newb. But yeah. I can go on a tangent. I won’t, but I’ve learned so much in the last year since I published my first book that I could. I’ll go for 3 quick things I’ve found to be in the rules, no matter what you write: One, being an author is a business. Treat it as such. Part-time or full time, you don’t get paid if you don’t work. And it is hard work, don’t let anyone lie to you, especially yourself. Two, writing is the easy part. There is so much to getting your work out to the public; editing, art (cover and internal graphic), marketing and advertising, platforms, TAXES (city, state, federal, and in some cases, international), and so many other behind-the-scene pleasantries that readers don’t see. Research and learn it all. And the third and possibly most important, is be kind to yourself. There’s a lot to learn. Your first draft will look like shit. You’ll sit and look at a blank or partially blank page for hours. You’ll erase and start over. Marketing sucks. Math and I don’t work well together, and so much math is involved. Some of your author friends will make this shit look easy, whereas others might cry out in desperation. Don’t let their successes or failures determine what YOU want to happen. Be a cheerleader for your fellow authors who are doing well (we are not competing for readers, there are enough to go around—I promise) and a listener to those who may be struggling but take none of it personally. Your hard work will be what determines whether or not you reach the goals you desire.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Oh. My. Gods. My dear and wonderful readers! You all amaze me. I have struggled with getting my work out to you. Life has thrown obstacle after obstacle in my way and yet, you have been patient with me. I want you to know that if you’re cheering me on from the back corner, all quiet and shy, I hear you. If you’re up in my face every day with exuberance, I see you. I adore each, and every one of you and I don’t think you can ever grasp how truly humbled I am that you’ve taken a chance to waste your precious time on me and my work. You’ve trusted me to bring you something that you can enjoy, relate to, to take you away from your daily stresses and that I will entertain you. All I can ever hope to do is live up to the challenge. You are the best part about this entire adventure I’ve taken on. Thank you so very much for allowing me into your lives.
