Author Golden Angel #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Golden Angel

Tell us a bit about yourself

Golden Angel is a USA Today best-selling author, Amazon Top 50 bestselling author, and self-described bibliophile with a “kinky” bent who loves to write stories for the characters in her head. If she didn’t get them out, she’s pretty sure she’d go just a little crazy.

She is happily married, old enough to know better but still too young to care, and a big fan of happily-ever-afters, strong heroes and heroines, and sizzling chemistry.

She believes the world is a better place when there’s a little magic in it.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, actually, I didn’t think it was possible as a career for me, even when I first started publishing. I’ve always loved reading and writing and maybe there was a time when I was a kid that I wanted to be one (in between wanting to be a dolphin trainer and an Olympic swimmer) but deep down I always thought my most-likely career path was as a teacher. This is not a place I expected to end up, but if I’d ever thought it was actually possible, it would have been very high on my list.

What was your inspiration for your current book /series?

Well, I’m in the middle of writing three series right now, all of which are spinoffs of other series. 

The first book in my Deception and Discipline series, which is set in my Bridal Discipline series’ world, released back in January and was inspired by my love of Stephanie Laurens’ Cynster and Bastion Club books as well as my love of combining historical romance with kink and spankings. 

In April and May, the first books in my Masters of Marquis and Dungeon Masters series are releasing, and they are both connected to each other as well as my Stronghold Doms world. Bondage Buddies, the first Masters of Marquis book, came about because I love a good friends-with-benefits turned to love romance. Mitch and Domi were introduced in the Stronghold Doms series and I knew eventually they’d be getting their own story. The hero of Dungeon Master, Gavin, first appeared in Logan, my Dad Bod Doms book, but he also appears in Bondage Buddies… as Mitch’s dad. Then in May he’ll get his own book.

The Dungeons and Doms series was inspired by a meme I kept seeing go around, saying it was possible to tell the difference between a nerd and a kinkster by asking them what a Dungeon Master was. The issue I have with that meme is that I am a nerd, and I know that there’s a lot overlap between D&D players and kinksters (also cosplayers and Rennaissance Fair goers…). So I wanted to write a book with a hero who was a Dungeon Master in both sense of the words, and I’ve also had a lot of requests for romances with older heroes / heroines and this seemed like a great opportunity to really dig into that.

What are you working on now?

Right now I am neck deep in Dungeon Master, though I’m getting close to the end. After this, I’ll be jumping into writing the third Tsenturion Masters book (sci-fi romance) with my co-writer for that series, Lee Savino.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I need constant feedback, so my poor beta readers are more like alpha readers. They get a chapter almost daily from me (except on weekends), sometimes two, and are often fielding question from me like “Is this too slow?” “Is it boring?” “Do you think things are happening too fast?” “Does this whole thing suck?”

What are your hopes for the future?

Oh so many. I am thrilled that I was able to become a full-time author in 2020. I am hoping to be able to maintain that and keep living the dream of being an author. Last year I also became a USA Today Bestselling Author, but I’d love to add Wall Street Journal and New York Times to that. If I had to choose though, I’d choose being the full time author over the accolades.

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

It’s not easy. That’s the first thing. Some people go into this thinking that it’s easy money, and it’s not. It’s a lot of work, and (sadly) most of the work has nothing to do with actually writing your book. Which makes using a publisher look particularly enticing, but be careful because there are predators out there.

There is also SO MUCH information on the internet. Find the author groups on Facebook, read through the posts – and don’t try to do everything at once, but also take advantage of the epic amount of information that’s out there to help you. I also highly recommend David Gaughran’s Starting from Zero web course (it’s free, just Google it). I would have killed to have all this information available when I was first starting out, but you’d better believe I’m making use of it now.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. Being a full time author is not a solo dream, it’s not something I could have achieved on my own. It literally takes a community. Anyone who reads my books, who takes the time to review them, to recommend them, to share my social media posts, to give them a rating… thank you, so much. You have made it possible for me to become a full time author and I will try to repay that by writing more books for you to read as quickly as possible!

Once Upon A Wolf by Scarlett Snow and Tiegan Clyne #newrelease

Once Upon A Wolf: A Dark Academy Reverse Harem Romance (Everafter Academy Book 1) by Scarlett Snow and Tiegan Clyne

°

Once upon a time a wolf took everything away from me. I’m here to return the favor…

When the Big Bad Wolf and his pack of witch hunters murdered my family, I made a deal with the Devil in exchange for revenge.

Giving him my soul was the easy part.

Surviving Everafter Academy… now that deserves a medal.

I’m not the Red Riding Hood everyone thinks I am. I’m Ravyn, the witch with a deep, dark secret, and I’m only at this school to hunt down my family’s killer. If pretty boys Erik, Christopher, and Gideon think they can make my life hell just because I’m different, they’re in for a surprise.

I’m going to make these Prince Charmings regret the day they ever wronged me.

Everything I do is chaos. Everything I touch turns to darkness. They can call me a monster because that’s exactly what I am.

My heart isn’t meant to be won over or broken. It’s meant to be feared.

With a trio of jealous princesses determined to put a hex on me, a magical school full of ‘good’ fairy tale creatures that despise my kind, secrets galore, and a headmaster whose dark desires rival my own, I’m here to prove that even villains deserve their happily ever after.

Mine just involves bloodshed, blackmail, and sweet sinister revenge.

What can I say? I’m a Darkblood. It’s in my nature.

Now sit back and let me tell you how fairytales REALLY go. It all starts with the Devil’s Altar…

Everafter Academy is a Dark Reverse Harem Bully Romance. Each fairytale creature has been modernized and thrown into a world of magic, depravity, and allure, and Ravyn will never choose which path—or man—she truly wants. Why choose when she can have them all?

Themes: bully, forbidden romance, student/teacher, D/s relationship
Genres: reverse harem, academy, fantasy, fairytale
Heat Level: Scorching-hot, consensual scenes that are for 18+ only.
