Please give a warm welcome to authors Eva Delaney and Mia Harlan creators of the Silver Springs universe.
Tell us a bit about yourselves…
Eva: Mia is married to a vampire and has a mini-vampire, who is very cute.
Mia: First of all, NOT a Vampire. But yes, our mini-MORTAL is very, very cute.
Eva: Lies! If he’s not a vampire, why do we never see photos of him?
Mia: It’s perfectly normal for people to dislike having their pictures taken. Plus, you’re a vampire, and there are pictures of you, sooo….
Eva: You’re projecting! Just because my fridge is full of jars of red liquid doesn’t make me a vampire. That is juice, not blood!
Mia: My Not a Vampire loves tomato juice, too. But he’s not the one who’s up at all hours of the night!
Eva: How would you know if I’m up all night unless you are too? We wrote Nephrite until 2am every night.
Mia: That was fun! And a good way to keep you from hunting humans.
What was your inspiration for Nephrite?
Mia: Eva and I came up with it on a park walk. It was freezing out and pitch dark, but that was the only way the two of us could get together during quarantine.
Eva: It sucks that the sun sets at 4pm in the winter, which was why it was dark on our walks.
Mia: *cough* vampire *cough*
Eva: You still have all your blood, don’t you?!
Mia: Friends don’t bite friends?
What are your plans for the Silver Springs universes?
Eva: To keep launching new series as long as people keep reading them.
Mia: I really hope people keep reading them. They’re so much fun to write!
Do you have any quirks while working?
Mia: Well, as you know, Eva writes all night long because VAMPIRE.
Eva: As you know, Mia also writes all night because she’s married to a vampire. She needs to be awake at night or she’ll never see him.
Mia: NOT a vampire. One quirk we had while writing Moonlit Nephrite was we’d take ten minute breaks and disappear for an hour and a half. But then it’s much harder for Eva to hunt down dinner.
Eva: I assumed those long breaks were because Mia had to recover after her husband bit her.
Mia: That kind of biting has nothing to do with vampires.
What are your hopes for the future?
Eva: To write in cafes again.
Mia: Definitely that. I miss it so much.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Eva: Publish sooner rather than later. I’ve been writing for most of my life, but only started publishing a few years ago. I wish I had started earlier.
Mia: Make friends with other authors! If we hadn’t done that, Silver Springs and Moonlit Falls wouldn’t exist.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
Eva: Thanks for your support! We only get to do this because of you.
Mia: Thanks everyone! And be sure to go to Eva’s Facebook group Eva Delaney’s Starship Crew and tell her to finally admit that she’s a vampire.
Eva: While you’re on Facebook, visit Mia’s group Harlan’s Harem and help her end her delusions about her vampire husband.

🌟 Kell Inkston 🌟
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 🌟
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 🌟
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.
🌟 Michael Radcliffe 🌟
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.
🌟 Eva Delaney 🌟
Eva combines her love of spaceships, strong heroines, and charming guys into swashbuckling romantic adventures. Her hobbies include writing, procrastinating, and feeling bad for not writing. The rest of the time, she’s a butler to a cuddly dog and a playful cat.
🌟 Serenity Rayne 🌟
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!
🌟 Melissa Adams 🌟
I’m from the UK (but I was born in Italy and grew up between the two countries). I’m UK based now and my day job is connected to my other huge passion after writing and reading: flying. I have lived in the US and got myself a super hot American husband who followed me back to Europe.
My obsessions: Yorkshire terriers and Norse gods!

🌟 Skye MacKinnon 🌟

🌟 Sam Hall 🌟
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 🌟
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.
🌟 Gene Stiles 🌟
International author, Gene Stiles, a Michigan native, moved to Simi Valley, CA in 1963.

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.

The men on my spaceship are fighting over me, and my boyfriend is having none of it. If that’s not enough, I’m stuck with a gruff soldier who’s refusing to follow my orders—and refusing to wear pants.

Please give a warm welcome to author Eva Delaney
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m from Toronto, but with my head in the clouds all the time, I feel like I belong in space or in a fantasy kingdom. So I started writing stories. I live with a cuddly, lazy dog and a playful chubby cat.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
Yes! I started writing when I was in Kindergarten. Back then, I needed an adult’s help because I didn’t know how to spell yet. Things go a lot a faster now.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
My current series is All the Stars in the Sky, a space opera reverse harem A friend introduced me to RH last year. So I picked up Pirate Nemesis by Carysa Locke and loved it. I thought I could do something similar by combining two of my fave things: romance and space opera. The main inspiration for this series in Star Wars, along with a mix of Firefly.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on book two in All the Stars in the Sky. This one will focus on the main character falling in love with her best friend: A nerdy, shy boy.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
I can only write in bed or at a cafe (it’s terrible for my back!)
What are your hopes for the future?
I hope to turn writing into a full-time gig. I kind of hate my day job and look forward to the day when I can focus on writing instead.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Make friends with other authors! They make all the difference. They can help you through rough patches in your writing, help promote your work, and answer questions. Author friends are everything!
Thanks for giving this newbie a chance!
I can’t describe how much it means to me that you like my series.
