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 ♡

Feathers & Fire by Loxley Savage
I’ve been called all of these, except my true name—a secret I’ve never learned.
I was groomed for a life of captivity; brought up as a slave for the exclusive club, Exotique. I’m desired for my body and thirsted after for my addictive blood. I’m stripped and restrained while male after male acts out his twisted desires.
I’m constantly at war with myself while my inner beasts battle for dominance.
The succubus half of me craves these sessions. She longs for the toxic mix of pleasure and pain, feasting on the release of others.
My phoenix half lies dormant. She’s a silent presence who shudders at the crack of a whip, and shies away from the cruel hands of my handlers.
While I suffer through countless degrading sessions, somewhere far away a trio of Phoenix warriors are sanctioned by their King to find and rescue me. Will they succeed? Or will one of my handlers finally take a session too far?
Their race is dying, but so am I.
The Valhalla Mechanism by Kendra Moreno
Ottilie Kingsford has dealt with the judgmental eyes of the elite her entire life, especially since she’s one of them. She leads a double life, one she was raised for since birth: Lady during the day, Spy during the night. She’s a master of blending in, and the only currency she deals in are secrets and lies.
When her assignment takes her to a disruption in the main square, she never expects to witness a magical war between gods and monsters. She most certainly doesn’t intend for the gods to catch her slipping away to give her report.
Now Big Ben won’t tick no matter how many tinkers work on it and the harshest winter in history has descended on London. The Gods keep insisting it’s the end of times, but Ottilie doesn’t believe in myths and legends. If two of those so called legends would stop ogling her like she’s some sort of circus freak, she could do her job. She just needs to stop the end of days and send the two men back to Asgard, where they belong.
The gears of Ragnarӧk are turning, and Ottilie will not fail her Queen.
Even if the world suddenly belongs to monsters…
Her Soulkeepers by Sadi Moss
Three messengers of the gods each hold a piece of my soul. I won’t let them claim my heart too.
My people are dying.
Our god has abandoned us, leaving us starving and weak. In a desperate attempt to save those I love, I offer up the ultimate sacrifice to our capricious deity.
He accepts my offering, and I forfeit my life. But when I arrive in the afterworld, a rival god who despises mine binds my soul to three beautiful, terrifying men—powerful beings he calls his messengers.
Callum, Echo, and Paris.
I’m little more than an annoyance to them, a lost soul their master has foisted upon them.
Still, the bond between us draws me toward them constantly, like a lodestone finding true north, and the more time I spend with these enigmatic men, the more confused my feelings become.
I hate them. I want them. I fear them. I need them.
But no matter what happens, I won’t let myself love them.

Well, that’s what’s new in my life…
And now my unrequited first love has left Hell to search for me before the killing machines of the Demonic Forces or the Angelic Army find me.
Some believe I’m the physical incarnation of a celestial legend, sent to shake up the already shaky truce between Heaven and Hell and save the human race. No pressure.
I failed my Reaper exams and have barely been kissed but that won’t stop me from harnessing my powers to claim my divine birthright. All while taking some very tempting men to bed–no matter if they’re angels, demons, or anything in between.

Unlucky for the Oxford coven who call me back home from America, I suck at following rules. When I’m forced to claim three gorgeous British shifter princes from rival Wolf Kingdoms, I can’t help loving and protecting them as pack, even if they hold their own dangerous secrets.
Yet the deeper I tumble into the mysterious world of pretty monsters, the further I spiral into sinister peril.
Am I right to trust an Omega? Has my whole life been a lie?
When my aunt’s coven and the Alphas test my Wolf Charmer powers, I’ll either discover what I’m capable of and who I truly am…
…or I’ll die.

With death surrounding her on every side, and new dangers sprouting up at every turn, can Ila learn to balance the mischief that sings in her soul with her duty to her people?
After all, the courts aren’t the only things that must bloom . . .

If Heaven doesn’t want me, I’ll be bad for the Hell of it.
Vengeance Series by M. Sinclair
I had been found feral, and despite their beautiful home… their beautiful facade – they were the same. Savages. Feral Savages. So I would treat them accordingly. I would live accordingly. I would kill accordingly.
I have a secret. Okay, probably more than one. I live a delicate balance, living with the evil I know than the one I don’t. I accepted that. Until they showed up. Until they brought my secret and past into the light. Until I had no choice but to accept my true fate.
Sh*t. This is why you punch first and ask questions later.

Feathers and Fate by Sadie Moss
Nobody warned me these men are hot as sin.
It makes sense, I guess. They are the Seven Sins, after all.
And what’s a fallen angel doing hanging out with guys like this, you ask? Well… that’s a long story that starts with me breaking a teeny-tiny rule and ends with me getting kicked out of Heaven.
But now I’ve got a chance to go back! There’s just one little catch: I’ll only be allowed to return to Heaven if I can bring the Seven Sins with me.
Yup. You heard that right. I have to redeem them. All of them.
It shouldn’t be so hard. I’ve got a plan of action all set.
Step 1: Stop thinking dirty thoughts about them.
Step 2: Recruit their help to close up the strange demonic portal that just opened in Manhattan.
Step 3: No, seriously, stop thinking dirty thoughts about them.
Uh oh. This might not be as easy as I thought…
