Author Janie Marie #interview

Please give a warm welcome to Janie Marie

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I live in Texas with my husband, three children, and our pets. I’m addicted to Dr Pepper and bad boys with pretty eyes.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Absolutely not. I was the girl who hated reading, and I nearly failed Senior English because I had anxiety about learning how to write. It’s honestly a long story about how I started to write, but I’ll just say it was a way for me to grieve the death of my best friend who told me to share my life with others.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Nearly everything I write is inspired by my personal experiences, my love for mythology and fairy tales.

What are you working on now?

Currently, I’m preparing Jane’s Team: A Gods & Monsters Bizarro Universe. It’s a high school reverse harem that happens to also be an alternate reality for my Gods & Monsters characters.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

My husband says I yell more than usual. He’s lying, obviously.

What are your hopes for the future?

Only to build onto the worlds I’ve created. I’d love to see how far I can go with them. A tv series would be a dream come true.

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

Never let anyone tell you that you have to change something you don’t want to. Yes, it may be what people think they want, but I think it’s more about what we as authors know our characters want that makes great writing. Plus, you can’t please everyone—someone is always going to be there to hate on your work. You might as well be happy with it because the person telling you to change will not be there in the future.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you for all the support through the years. You’ve watched me through some dark moments, and you’ve stuck by me when I was ready to give it all up. You’re goddesses and warriors. I adore you. But, sorry, Ryder, David, Luc, and Tercero are mine. Haha

PA Izzy Hix #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am currently studying toward (hopefully) my PhD in Experimental Psychology. Now you may ask why the heck am I am PA. I love the author community. I also love numbers and love organization.  I kinda have a thing for spreadsheets. Like a REAL thing.  *fans self* I absolutely love to travel. I recently went to Amsterdam and I keep realizing how much I miss it there. I’m also kinda a yoga junky.  Basically, I’m a mixed up ball of random.

Example

How long have you been a PA?

I have been working as a PA for a long time now.  I normally work with small business owners but expanded into working with authors in the RH community last April. It has been amazing!!

Example

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

I’ve always loved helping people and I developed a skillset that helps me do that for my authors. PAing was an obvious fit for me.

What do you do as a PA?

Nearly everything. I think my favorite things are helping manage ARC teams and bookkeeping…yeah I know, crazy, right? Who likes numbers?? Me. I also help with promotion, managing readers groups, other social media, and more than I could list. Basically, I’ve worked in over 10 different industries so I have a lot of skills. Just ask and I can probably do it.

Example

Do you have any quirks while working?

I listen to books while I work. I also drink water like it’s going out of style. I don’t even realize how much I drink. It’s nearly a compulsion.

What are your hopes for the future?

Obviously with my pursuit for my PhD, working in research is my endgame but I don’t see that stopping my PA work. I love what I do and I love my authors as well as all the amazing readers out there.

Example

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Be organized…like overly so. Communicate. Don’t ghost people. Ask for advice. There are tons of us that do this so just shoot a PM to me and I’d be happy to give you some direction. In fact, I actually have interns to help those who want to explore the world of PAing in the reading community and I help show them the ropes. I’m a nut for helping people!

Are you available for new work or booked solid?

I am available. I love to help authors so just reach out!

PA Yashira Rosado Ortiz #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Well I’m Yashira, I’m 29 and have 2 beautiful daughter’s, a furbaby and have been married for 5 year’s! I love reading and listening to music and have a bad addiction to coca cola lol!

°

How long have you been a PA?

I have been a PA for just a couple of month’s so I’m still learning but have a rhythm.

Example:

°

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

For medical reasons I can’t work and while hubby is working I’m home basically bored, so I thought I love to read and love helping author’s by pimping their work because that’s how I started in this community and slowly went growing into being a PA which for me was amazing and I’ve worked with so many badass author’s!

°

What do you do as a PA?

As a PA I do graphics, TOs, manage ARC team’s, BETA Team’s! I help manage group’s and get more interaction and growth! I work with google docs, forms and sheets I basically do anything the author needs help with!

Example:

°

Do you have any quirks while working?

Well I guess I do try make everything perfect and am always sending my author’s multiple options! I can’t just send 1 of anything it has to be in multiples so that way we can add change or even find the perfect thing for what they need in that moment!

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’m always trying to be better at what I do so for the future I want to keep learning so I can better myself in my field and be able to help many more author’s do what they love which is writting amazing stories for us reader’s!

Example:

°

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Have patience, it’s a big responsibility and make sure you click with the author’s! It won’t be easy and you will have hits and misses but don’t give up on yourself! And only do this is you really love the field and what it represents because if you do it will show in your work and trust me good author’s will appreciate all the work you do for them!!

Don’t be afraid to ask for help, I’ve been blessed to have met so many great people in this community which have become my family, if I’m not sure about something I always go and bug them lol but never be afraid to ask for help it doesn’t mean your weak just means your human!

°

Are you available for new work or booked solid?

Yes I’m always available for new author’s who need help and right now I’m not fully booked!

A Year of Blogging 2019

This year has certainly been one big surprise that kept going. 2018 was the year I fell madly in love with the reverse harem genre. 2019 was the year I decided to start interviewing some of those amazing RH authors. Well that snowballed quickly. I have interviewed over 231 authors, cover designer, models, bloggers, formatters and so on. I’ve also started two groups Soe Delights which is all about RH and menage, and Soe Book Bliss which is every genre. I started the same on Instagram.

I met another blogger, Ira Myriam. We started talking and suddenly we were working together. She is an amazing, generous soul that I consider myself very lucky to know, love you babe! Now Josie Cross PA have joined our madness and I couldn’t be happier *whispers: she’s organized* love you sweetie!

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.

Blogger Ira Myriam #interview

Please give a warm welcome to blogger°

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Ira Myriam and I’m an independent, non-profit blogger, with a lot of passion for new upcoming authors. I am always open to meeting new authors and reading new books, but the best part about being independent and no-profit is that I read whatever I feel like and whenever I feel like, which mean that when I love a book, I really love a book. ❤
When people see my reviews they think that I give everyone a five star review, which is only partially true. Yes, I give the books I review five stars, but that is because the only books I read and review are five star books. I have been very fortunate lately, as I haven’t encountered anything less than a great book for a while now.

How did you get started blogging?

I started my blog to thank the authors for their stories and share my love for books with other readers. It rapidly became my passion. In the process I have discovered many wonderful new authors and some amazing books, most of which were debut novels. I started writing about them, interviewing the authors, providing readers with reading lists for long running popular series, and the new and upcoming releases from the authors I follow. And here we are.
Three years later, and 170+ posts, I am supergrateful to all the authors for their stories, for not blocking me when I bug them, and to all the people who follow my reviews and recommendations. I also have a group now, where everyone can post book related stuff as much as they want, and where everyone can find their new favourite books or an author.

What genres of books do you blog about?

I started with the idea that I would blog about urban fantasy and paranormal romance, mainstream. But then sci-fi and dystopian happened and YA fantasy and epic fantasy. And then finally some of my favourite authors came up with contemporary and historical, and reverse harem wiggled its way in, and poetry, so now I literally do not have a genre or theme I would not cover, as long as the material is well written.

Have you ever considered writing a book yourself?

I don’t think I thought about it much because I have zero talent for writing. I can reflect on other people’s work and critically analyse their work, but starting a story from scratch? I wouldn’t even know where to start. Authors are rock stars, I’m just a groupie.

Who are some of your favourite authors?

I used to have several favourite authors many years ago. I think I have about fifty right now, and the number is climbing. I am not a type of a person to forget my previous loves just because a shiny new book came out, so I adopt them all. So now I have favourite authors from years ago and some from few weeks or months ago, but in the end I love all of them and I love all of their books. That is probably the reason for my lack of time and difficulty catching up with all the new releases.

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope that someday I get stranded on a deserted island with my kindle and a solar charger and stay there for about two years doing nothing but reading. Or maybe not. That would mean that I would miss all the new releases. I can’t have that. But seriously, I hope that I’ll keep getting opportunities to meet new authors and stay in touch with the ones I already know, read and share their books, and I hope that they never stop writing.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Respect authors. Please don’t support book piracy in any way, it is hurting the authors and if the damage becomes too great, they might stop writing, which would be a huge tragedy. There are always giveaways, review copies, freebies in one book fest or another, get those.

And also, join my group, check out my blog, and keep your eye out because I often give books away for whatever reason I can think of.
And to my authors, please never stop writing. There will never be too many of you or too many stories. There will always be readers eagerly anticipating your next book or story, and love you for it as much as I do. Thank you for all your stories.LinkTree

Mallory Kent PA #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am a 35 year old secretary from Vancouver, WA (USA). I enjoy reading, crafting and spending time with those people who are important in my life.

°

How long have you been a PA?

I started PA work in April of 2019

°

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

No, I didn’t really know what a PA did honestly. I was just asked to work for some authors one day and I enjoy helping them so I jumped on it. I would have done it for free to be honest but they wouldn’t let me. Haha.

°

What do you do as a PA?

I always have a hard time with this questions because I don’t really know the line between what is actual PA work and what I am doing for fun. Lol. I keep the calendar for Takeovers, sign then up for events, handle tasks that they need me too, sometimes I make graphics, find teasers, I promote their books and manage their groups… I do a lot of the tasks that would keep them from writing basically.

°

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t think so?

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope everyone realizes how awesome my authors are and love them as much as I do. Yea, I’m talking about you, Kendra Moreno, K.A. Knight and Poppy Woods, you talented bishes.

°

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Make friends in the PA community, ask loads of questions, ask for help and always remember that you and your authors are a team, what is good for them is good for you.

°

Are you available for new work or booked solid.

I am not taking on any full time authors at the moment but I do offer some of my services on their own and an author could PM me anytime to see what those services are.
