Author Erin O’Kane #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Erin O’Kane

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Erin and I live in the UK with my husband. I’m always reading, writing or napping, and have an obsession with cake and other baked goods! I write RH fantasy and paranormal romance, and also co-write with K.A Knight and Loxley Savage.

What has happened work wise since our last interview?

Since our last interview I’m now writing full time! I used to work part-time in health care, but last year in July, I quit and I’m now a full time author.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Fires of the Fae came about as I was finishing my War and Deceit series (fantasy RH). Although the character’s story arc came to an end, I knew that I wasn’t ready to let this world go yet.

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on finishing up A Lady of Embers

Do you have any quirks while working?

I often speed through the dialogue, jotting down the words and then coming back and filling in the actions and the ‘he said’ ‘she said’ parts. I have a very short memory, and I can almost visualise the scenes, so I have to jot it down quickly!

What are your hopes for the future?

Ooh, that’s a deep question that I don’t have an answer for! Instead I can tell you what I’m looking forward too? I can’t wait for book signings to start again and meet some of my readers.

What have you learned about publishing since our first interview?

Oh gosh. I feel like I learn something new everyday! I’ve learnt it can be a pretty harsh place, and very isolating. However, if you can get a good author tribe with other indie authors and amazing readers, it can also be so rewarding.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Yes, thank you! Without all of you, I wouldn’t have this amazing job. Your support allows me to get lost in my fantasy worlds, so thank you ♡

Second Skin by Ophelia Bell #preorder

Mad Dog (Second Skin Book 1) by Ophelia Bell

My military discharge was only a year ago and all I want is to do tattoos and live my life, put my old scars and previous sins behind me. But it turns out my oldest wound can still inflict fresh agony. 

Her name is Celeste, she was my first everything, and those feelings haven’t died. 

The problem is, I have feelings for someone else now too, and I don’t know if Celeste would understand… 

Leo is his name, the inked-up gangbanger who visits my shop for new tattoos every Saturday like clockwork. 

And just to complicate this clusterf*ck that is my life now, Leo is also in love with Celeste.

Both are off limits, and I know it. He’s straight. I’m not. And she’s the daughter of one of the most dangerous men in the western hemisphere. But fate seems to keep throwing them in my path, torturing me with the one thing I want but can’t have. 

Until the night Leo comes to me with a proposal, and a request I never expected to hear spills from his lips. But even one night with them would be worth risking everything.

A new contemporary romance series is coming to ebook retailers in 2021.

Author Alisha Williams #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Alisha Williams

Tell Us a bit about yourself

Hi! I’m Alisha. I’m 28. I live in Canada with my hubby and two daughters. I love to read and write. Something a lot of people don’t know about me is I had a lot of learning disabilities growing up. I always struggled with reading and spelling. The first real book series I read was twilight at 16. I’ve come along way since then and never in a million years thoughts I’d be able to write my own books. My books may not be perfect, but I won’t let my disabilities be a disadvantage and hold me back anymore.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I haven’t always wanted to write books, but around 14 I started making up all these ideas for movies in my head. Due to life getting in the way, I never made anything of that. But years later, when I realized I could take some ideas and make them in to books, I saw a chance to make a new dream come true.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Emerald Lake Prep started off as a dream I made up to help myself go to sleep. After reading Academy Of Misfits by Bea Paige, I did what I normally do to fall sleep every night, and made up my own world within that book. After while, my own ideas started coming forward, and I made my own little world loosely base off the reform school idea but added my own twist. 

What are you working on now?

Right now I’m working on Emerald Lake Prep book 2, Into the unknown. I’m also working on a new dark contemporary romance that is a bit of a spin-off of a new character that shows up in ELP 2. It takes the readers a few years back and tells Harlow’s story. And if those books ever give me writers block, I have a supernatural series started I’ll be working on.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I do. I can’t be around anyone while writing. Every little sound distracts me. I write in my bedroom, with a fan app on my phone for white noise to drown out the silence and keep a consistent background noise.

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to keep writing books that readers will love. I have tons of ideas for books and series of all kinds of genres, so I’m hoping to write a little bit of everything.

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

Don’t compare your self or your work to any other author. Write what you want, and trust that it’s enough. No book is meant for everyone, but ever book is meant for someone. Every book will find its right audience.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for giving a new author a chance. Thank you for loving my book baby, and wanting more. Please stick around, because I have so many more stories to share with you, some may just take longer than others to be born. Without you all, none of this would be possible. You all rock!

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!

Author Kris Butler #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Kris Butler

Tell us a bit about yourself

I started writing as a way to process my emotions, which lead to my first book. Through my characters, I could make sense of the world around me and cope with things in healthy ways. The characters came alive, and they needed to be heard. Thanks to a friend, who was an author, She encouraged me to take the leap and publish. Finding myself through writing has been an unexpected bonus that has allowed me to connect with others and share part of who I am. 
I write under a pen name to have separation from real life and most days, I can be found at home with my husband and dog. I work in the mental health industry, and it is a passion of mine. An introvert by nature, I enjoy reading, photography, and board games. A self-proclaimed nerd at heart, I follow many fandoms. I’m an avid fan of reverse harem and hope to add a new quirky perspective to the genre. 

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

Not all. I never had the courage to try. I felt all the stories had been told and I was just an avid reader along for the ride. From reader to ARC reviewer, to Beta reviewer, to an Alpha reader, to eventually Writer, it has all been an incredible journey of self-discovery. I uncovered a passion and exuberance for something I didn’t know I would love or need in my life but now couldn’t imagine my life without it. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

I wanted to do something that isn’t seen a lot that I had a passion for. I’ve always been a huge fan of ice skating and did it for a while when I was younger. Once I decided to do a winter sports school, everything else fell into place and a girl running from her past emerged. 

What are you working on now? 

I just released the second book in my series, the Council series, so I’m working on book 3, Fractured Futures. I’m also working on a dark retelling of Rapunzel as part of the Sinners Fairytale series that takes a fairytale and mashes it with a deadly sin. So Rapunzel and Pride will be coming at you in July. 

New Release

Do you have any quirks while working? 

I’ve developed a habit of eating Reese’s pieces, lol. I like to sit on my couch surrounded by a million pillows and blankets. It’s the perfect cloud nirvana to write. 

What are your hopes for the future? 

I’m just along for the ride and wherever this journey takes me. I have so many book ideas now and it was like once I opened myself up to writing, they just started flowing out. 

Pre-order

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

Ask for help and find a mentor. It’s all overwhelming and scary, but finding someone to go through it with you is the best thing. Finding support with other newbie authors is also a great way to network and encourage each other through the process. I wouldn’t be anywhere without the support and friends I’ve made. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers? 

I’m so honored that you’ve read my book and your support means the world to me!

Author Mila Sin #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Mila Sin

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi, I’m Mila, and I’m addicted to reverse harem novels. I’m 32, a business owner, teacher, wife, mom to my gorgeous two-year-old son, voracious reader, and now, a writer. I’m originally from Los Angeles but have moved all over the world and finally settled down in Croatia. I fell back in love with reading when my son was born. I was on an extended maternity leave, managing my business but not teaching, and found myself with some extra time while my son slept at random times. I started with rom-coms, moved into the dark and taboo, and then one day, I picked up Sunshine and Bullets by Coralee June in mid-2020. I didn’t know it was RH, but man, oh man, I haven’t stopped reading them since.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

It’s always been something I wanted to do but never made the time for. Work, family duties, any excuse I could think of constantly got in the way. This last Christmas, I found myself with three weeks off from work and an idea. Let me tell you, paying for childcare is a good motivator to accomplish something with those suddenly child-free hours. It’s definitely taken longer than those initial three weeks, but I managed to get the lion’s share done, and it made continuing that much easier for me.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’ve been drawn to the contemporary RH scene, but I needed older characters. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the academy scene, but I teach that age, so I always age the characters in my head. Gang and mafia books have such detailed and rich organizational structures which call to my Type A personality. But, then again, I love humor. So I basically decided to write a story about a woman involved in a gang, runs their hitman crew but isn’t there of her own volition. I made her sweet, sarcastic, and snarky, really focusing on the duality that is human nature. No one is any one thing ALL the time. Why can’t someone be an assassin who is also sweet and sarcastic?

What are you working on now?

I’ve just about finished with the edits on book one of the series. And last night, I typed up the first chapter of book two. I’m hoping for relatively close release dates because book one ends on a cliffhanger. I adore cliffies, but also, resolution as quickly as possible.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I basically just need to have some alone time. If my son is with another caregiver or sleeping, I’m good to go. I like to write out plot points and scenes at night in a notebook that I want to tackle the next day. I find handwritten notes the best because I inevitably scratch things out to alter them after sleeping on the ideas. I also really like waking up at about five am so the house is quiet, and I know I’ll have about an hour or two of uninterrupted writing and coffee time.

What are your hopes for the future?

I love my work as a teacher, but I also never expected to love writing so much. I hope to find balance as time goes on, rather than waiting for a break from teaching to have the time to write. My main goal right now is to stay focused and complete my series.

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

Ask any and every question that pops up in regards to publishing. The author community on Facebook is really inclusive and willing to help. I’m definitely still learning, but I’m feeling more comfortable navigating this new venture by asking and researching. The Facebook group 20booksto50k is an incredible resource whether you’re planning to make writing your full-time job or doing it for fun.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for taking a chance on a new author if you decide to pick up my book. I am beyond grateful for the support I’ve received, especially from my Alphas and Betas. Also, please write reviews for the books you read! They don’t have to be anything loquacious or bookstagram worthy, but they are so very important to authors.

Author Stella Brie #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Stella Brie

Tell us a bit about yourself

I live outside of Nashville, Tennessee with my husband and my 13 year old golden retriever, Bailey.  My husband got tired of me telling him I wanted to write a book ‘someday’ and challenged me to sit down and write a paragraph. Just one paragraph. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. First, I wrote a serial fan fiction, then jumped into my first book, My Salvation. I learned a ton writing that book! 

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

For a long time, no. I was a voracious reader and I worked in marketing. But for the last few years, I kept thinking “this is something I want to do…someday”.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

Music often inspires a kernel of an idea. For my newest book, The Rowan, I heard the song Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer on the radio and all I could think about were vampires dancing on the dance floor, paying homage to a master vampire. That jump started my new series. 

What are you working on now? 

Book 2 in the Killian Blade Series, an urban fantasy reverse harem.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

I like to write one chapter at a time. When I sit down at my laptop, I will only write one chapter. I may come back later and write another chapter, but not in one sitting. It helps me focus.

What are your hopes for the future? 

To tell a lot more stories, cross genres and make a living. (Got to feed my dog!)

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

Just do it, publish. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You will learn a ton and that will set up your second book for more success. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you, my heart is so full of gratitude for everyone who reads my books.

When Frost’s secrets are exposed, Zep sees the man in a whole new light. Unfortunately, as much as they want each other, they can’t seem to stay on the same page. Hopefully, they’ll figure out a way to meet in the middle. Otherwise, they’ll miss their shot at real love.
