Legends of knights in shining armour. The story of the fair maiden who sacrifices herself to save her family. Myths of objects of power so great that they will grant your every wish and desire.

Author K.R. Fajardo #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author K.R. Fajardo

Tell us a bit about yourself…

My name is K. R. Fajardo and I am an indie author from East Texas. I currently have 4 self-published books and many projects in the works. My genre of choice is fantasy but I also dabble a little in paranormal fantasy and paranormal romance. My interests include 80’s music (specifically 80s hair bands), reading(of course), RPG video games (Assassin’s Creed and the Witcher are my favs), and watching movies. Dr. Pepper is my caffeinated beverage of choice.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

To be honest, I never considered it an option. Kind of like becoming a movie or rock star, it was one of those things that was reserved for the privileged few. I always loved reading and the escape it gave. And for years I had this one character running amok in my head, driving me crazy at night, but it wasn’t until my youngest child started to school and I found myself with some free time on my hands, that I decided to sit down and put some words on paper. One hundred and twenty thousand words later, K’s story was finally free. Shortly after that, I discovered self-publishing was a thing that existed, and fumbled my way through the process. And I am so glad I did. I have learned so much since then and met so many wonderful people from all over the world. It truly has been an adventure learning to be an author, but I don’t regret it one bit, and I never want to give it up. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

The Shadow Chronicles series is literally the voice in my head that would never shut up. K has rooted around in my mind for as long as I can remember. I think she is the embodiment of everything I wish I was. Strong, fierce, drop-dead gorgeous, and yet still vulnerable. And she is a vampire, because they have always fascinated me. Her story is unique in that it is told from the point of view of the other characters in the book. Her thoughts and feelings are never revealed, and that leaves her open to the interpretation of the reader. 

What are you working on now? 

Currently I am working on revising Stalking Fate for a rerelease with Butterdragons Publishing. The story is getting a complete overhaul with lots of new content that I think readers will enjoy. I also have several projects, including on Fae book and a paranormal romance in the works that will hopefully be ready for release next year.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

Silence. I am easily distracted, so no music or TV’s can be playing in the background. Also, I have developed the habit of lighting a candle while I work. I like the aromas they emit and find it soothing to have the flame flickering nearby.

What are your hopes for the future?

To keep writing stories. It is every bit as much of an escape as reading and it is my own world. Would I love to say that I will one day be able to quit my day job and just write, sure. But that is the dream isn’t it. If it is meant to be, it will be. In the meantime, I will just do me and have fun creating new worlds.

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

Beware wolves in sheep’s clothing. In particular vanity presses. If someone offers to publish your book but then tries to charge you to do so, run. You can self-publish your book for a fraction of what those people are charging. Also beware all the so-called ‘coaches’ that are running around out there. Don’t get me wrong, there are some legit sites out there that will be of great help and many reputable coaches. But there are also just as many frauds. Social media can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. I have found many wonderful cover designers, editors, and formatters using these resources. I just recommend you do your research, speak to other authors, and interview any new prospective business before you send your money their way.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you so much for sticking by me. I have had to deal with a lot of personal tragedies the last couple of years. This year in particular has been devastating. And through all these hard times, it has been your words of encouragement and patience that has helped me pull through. Finally, I have found my way back to writing, and it is all because of you guys. I love and appreciate each and every one of you. And you all have a special place in my heart. 

Author Traci Lovelot #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Traci Lovelot

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Traci Lovelot is my pen name, and I’m the author of Our Fae Queen, a reverse harem series in a fantasy world that overlaps our own. I’m addicted to books without love triangles, so I write romance where our leading lady lives happily ever after with ALL the guys. 🥰 Because why choose? I prefer reading and writing paranormal romance and fantasy romance, but I wouldn’t rule out writing a scifi RH or contemporary RH someday…

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Pretty much! I wrote my first book when I was ten years old. My mother frequently took me on library trips, where I would devour books that were way too old for me. Reading was my favorite pastime, so much so that I would get in trouble for reading during classes. I dreamed of becoming an author some day, and now I’m busy making my inner child’s dreams come true.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

With Our Fae Queen, I wanted to write about a character who didn’t just have things handed to her, but had to grow into her destiny. I also wanted to include some myths from around the world, because I find it fascinating how similar myths pop up across the world in cultures that hadn’t even discovered each other yet. Stories tap into something primal within us, and I love being a part of that shared world with my readers.

What are you working on now?

What am I NOT working on? Haha. Right now I’m busy killing off typos in Our Fae Queen Book 4 so I can send it off to my advance review team (which you can join!), I’m revising Book 5 with feedback from my editor, and I’m dreaming of a new series… PNR that’s a second-chance romance combined with enemies to lovers, and, of course, reverse harem. I’m SUPER excited about it, but I know it’ll take me some time to develop.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I prefer dead silence when writing, but if not… I listen to dub-step and electronica to get me pumped.

What are your hopes for the future?

I dream of traveling again… I gain inspiration from the world around me, and unfortunately, lately I’ve mostly confined myself at home. I hope we can all work together to put an end to this pandemic so we can all enjoy being with one another again!

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

Join 20Booksto50k and follow all the brilliant advice in the guides on their Facebook group. If you’re a romance writer, I would also recommend reading Romancing the Beat by Gwen Hayes, as well as Romance Your Brand by Zoe York. If you read The Lost Queen, you’ll see I put a ton of resources in my Acknowledgments, those whose wisdom helped me along my path.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thanks for joining me so early in my author journey! I’m looking forward to bringing you many more fun worlds to enjoy and characters to meet. All of you who have left me reviews and have believed in me so far really do keep me encouraged to continue!

Author Sinclair Kelly #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Sinclair Kelly

Tell us a bit about yourself… 

My name is Sinclair Kelly. I’m a paranormal & contemporary romance author who writes to give all of the feral characters in my head a voice. I’m fluent in sarcasm and dry humor. We currently call sunny Arizona home – we being me, my loving husband, three adorably exhausting kids, a cranky old chihuahua named Sam (aka SamBurger) and a feisty Australian shepherd puppy named Havoc. I love reading, writing, coffee, vodka, tattoos, wine, donuts, broody asshole book boyfriends, badass FMCs, sangria, and all of the friendships I’ve made since beginning my writing journey.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

I’ve dreamed of writing since I was in my early twenties. I took classes to fine tune my work – one by best selling Harlequin author Leigh Michaels – but life got in the way, like it tends to do. It’s taken me almost twenty years to realize my dream, but I’m here now and loving every second of sharing my characters with readers.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

I just finished up my menage novella series which literally started off with a writing prompt: An ogre, a troll, and a witch walk into a bar…and from there this quirky fairy tale was born. 

What are you working on now? 

Right now, I’m working on my solo project, Just My Luck, Book four in the Some Kind of Luck shared world series. Book one, The Trouble With Luck, was co-written with Elizabeth Knight, Ali D Jensen, and Letty Frame, and follows four best friends as they experience spring break and St Patrick’s Day in Chicago. It’s got intrigue, hot mafia / mob men, lots of steamy scenes and four friends that are inseparable. Books two, Tough Luck by Ali D Jensen, and three, Stroke of Luck, by Elizabeth Knight, are available now.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

When I’m thinking or plotting out a scene in my head, I tend to play with my hair…a lot. My husband thinks it’s weird.

What are your hopes for the future? 

Honestly, I’m just excited I get to share my worlds with readers. Would it be awesome to “hit it big”? Of course it would…but that’s not the goal. I just want to tell my stories and hopefully have people enjoy them 🙂

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

Don’t give up. Dreams can happen at any age, so get those ideas and words onto metaphorical paper (or literal paper if that’s your thing). It will happen eventually – whether it’s days/months/years down the line – and you’ll want to be ready 😉 

Do you have anything to say to your followers? 

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to each and every person that’s crossed my path in the last year. It’s been a wild ride and I couldn’t have done it without you.

Author J.L. Madore

Please give a warm welcome to author

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I am a busy wife, mother, grandma, sister, daughter, and friend, like so many others. I live in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario, and work full-time with my writing. As well as adventures on the page, I enjoy adventures in life. I’ve worked with lions and tigers and bears in private reserves, hubby and I moved the kids to a rainforest in Panama, Central America for a year, and when the world allows it, we travel and collect memories. 

I write what I enjoy reading, which means, fantasy/paranormal, low/medium angst, fast burn, and for the conflicts to come from obstacles more than people mistreating one another and being shitty. My characters swear and make rude comments and are quite often inappropriate. I want my books to be sexy and fun… oh, and they’re funny too. 

Have you always wanted to become an author?     

Actually, no. I always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. I was fortunate enough to be able to do that for twenty years and about twelve years ago, while taking a year away from the bustle of north American pressures to always keep moving, pushing, taking classes, joining clubs, I learned to love a good book. 

Having not been a huge reader up to that point, I didn’t take any books when we moved. My daughter, Abbey, was thirteen then and she brought a copy of Twilight. I must’ve read it 15 times (being the only book we had) and eventually, I started wondering about alternative plot directions. I thought, ‘If I wrote a book, my character would’ve said this and done that.’ My muse found me lying in a hammock in a rainforest.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?   

Currently, I’m writing 2 series under 2 pen names. I have the Guardians of the Fae Realms polyamorous reverse harem under JL Madore and the Chronicles of the Urban Druid urban fantasy adventure series under Auburn Tempest. Same writing style, same storytelling, but JL has vivid sex and adult content, and Auburn has teasers and fade to black.

The inspiration for my RH series was being part of the FB group Reverse Harem Readers and Authors. There is a fun bunch of crazy ladies in there who aren’t shy about telling you what they like and want in a book. I was reading RH and wondered why there wasn’t more MM. It seemed to me that if there is one woman and four guys, having them all focus on their female was limiting the sexual pleasures. I watched and when I saw women asking for more MM and more of a polyamorous romance series, I decided to write it.

What are you working on now?   

I alternate between pen names, so right now I’m finishing book 10 in the Urban Druid series A Dragon’s Dare (no sex) and then am starting book 9 in the Guardians series Honor Restored (lots of sex) lol. Book 9 will be the first book in Honor’s harem and the beginning of her story. She’s the third woman in the series to get her mates.

Do you have any quirks while working?   

Not really. I sit. I write. I watch Netflix and Marvel at night to glean ideas. And the next day, I sit and write again. I do have a bit of an obsession about eating M&Ms while I do that, though. Which I’m trying to curb… because hello, I turned 50 this month and my metabolism seems to have forgotten to come with me over the hill.

What are your hopes for the future?   

My biggest hope for the past decade was to retire my hubby from his high-pressure corporate job and be able to support us with my writing. He worked his ass off for the twenty years I stayed home and focused on the kids and now it’s his turn to enjoy freedoms. Goal achieved. At the time of writing this, it’s Thursday, and he’s been retired for four days. Yay! He’s an avid mountain bike rider and is looking forward to spending more time on the trails. I’m so thrilled that my fans loving my crazy stories means I can take the reins for the next twenty years. Also, we have our first grandbaby and are looking forward to spending oodles of time playing with her.

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

Take classes and learn the craft. It doesn’t have to be university creative writing classes but find a guild or critique group and really learn how to craft a great story.

Read tons in your genre of interest. Know what you love to write and know what readers are looking for and find a way to make those two things intersect. 

Drill down to a sub-niche you think is underserved. For me, I love writing paranormal romance, then I looked into reverse harem, then specifically MM/poly, and also low/angst and fast burn. 

Really think about what your brand is… Mine is found family and finding the place you belong. To my fans and followers, I’ll say what I always say. It thrills me to know that my stories resonate with you. I’m thankful 

Join the 20BooksTo50K Facebook group and learn how to make money with your stories. Writing for passion and muse is great but making a living at it is better. 20Books changed everything for me and gives the indies the power to succeed.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?  

To my fans and followers, I’ll say what I always say. It thrills me to know that my stories resonate with you. I’m thankful for your support and read every review, taking comments to heart. Thank you for all the amazing feedback and for engaging with my characters.

This is slow burn reverse harem and is aimed at readers 18+. There are some scenes that some readers may find upsetting.

Author Vivienne Hart #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself… 

I have my MFA in Creative Writing, and I write all things magical and mysterious. Captivated by fairy tales from a young age, I gradually began to create my own worlds filled with fantastic creatures and monstrous beasts, and it’s my great joy to now share those worlds through my books.

In addition to spinning a good story, my loves include chocolate, reading good books, and taking as many bubble baths as I can. When I’m not writing, you can find me roaming around the southern U.S. with my husband and two very fluffy cats. I’m the redhead in pajamas.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

Yes. I love making up characters and worlds, and I think writing is the thing I’m best at. I’ve had a series of boring jobs, and I’ve also worked with books in various other capacities, including publishing, but none of it really spoke to me. My favorite thing is getting out a pen and paper and playing around with weird ideas, mashing up things that seem like they don’t go together, and finding ways to use my favorite words. I really love words, and I have a lot of fun molding them into tales.

I’m an only child with two creative parents: my dad made up endlessly hilarious bedtime stories when I was little, and my mom was great at helping me with unique homework projects, like creating board games and building dioramas. So I think I inherited that creative spirit, and because I was the only kid in my house, I spent a lot of time in my head, making up stories and worlds. I also saw a UFO when I was about eight, and I think that instilled a sense of possibility in the fantastic that has stayed with me. (I’m not saying I had an alien encounter, but I definitely saw something weird, round, and unidentified hovering in the sky!)

Preorder

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

I have a deep and abiding love for and interest in fairy tales. When I was getting my MFA, I did my graduate project on fairy tales and the enduring nature of retellings. Then I had the opportunity to explore alien romance, so I thought it would be really interesting and fun to take traditional tales we all know and give them a science fiction spin. Hence, my Interstellar Fairy Tales series was born. The first book, Aura Awakened, is out now. The second book in the series, Zella Unlocked, will be in Alien Embrace. It’s a space retelling of Rapunzel, complete with a xenophobic colony, a detention tower, and an alien military force. There are more books to come in the series, so interested readers should stay tuned to my newsletter or social media for updates.

What are you working on now? 

A few different things. Zella Unlocked releases in August 2021, so I’m busy putting the finishing touches on it and gearing up for promotional stuff. I’m also working on the other books in the Interstellar Fairy Tales series, as well as some non-SFR fairy tale projects and some standalone SFR books. I have years’ worth of books planned; I wish I could write faster so I could release them all right away. I’m working on epic fantasies, paranormal mysteries, urban fantasies set on other worlds, different kinds of retellings, and so much more!

Coming Soon

Do you have any quirks while working? 

I almost never work at a desk. I’ve always been this way, and I don’t really know why, other than I find desks/tables inherently uncomfortable. Instead, I make work nests. I’ll settle on the couch or bed with a bunch of pillows, my favorite throw blanket, and some water. I snuggle into my nest and get lost in worlds and words.

I also can’t write to music. I know a lot of authors like to create a playlist for each project to help them set the mood and tone of the book, but that doesn’t work for me. I’m so connected to words that I immediately get distracted by the lyrics, which interfere with the words I’m trying to write. I suppose I could write to instrumental music, but honestly, it’s just not for me. I will write to rain and storm sounds, though.

What are your hopes for the future? 

I hope that I can continue to do this as my career for many years to come, that I continue to find new readers, and that my books resonate with people. I love telling stories, and I genuinely hope that more and more people discover my books and love reading them.

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

When it comes to indie publishing, authors have a lot more control than they do in the traditional publishing world. You don’t have to get through the gatekeeping of agents, editors, and publishers, and you can (mostly) control royalties, covers, release schedule, and more. All of that is really alluring. However, indie publishing comes with its own challenges. You may have all the control, but you also have to do all the work. There are no agents or PR teams backing you and spreading the word. 

A career in indie publishing is about so much more than just writing. I was naïve when I started and thought that as long as I could tell a story and had solid writing mechanics, I could be successful. But if you want to truly succeed and make a living, you have to learn how to run a business. There are so many behind-the-scenes business factors to consider: popular trends, writing to market, bookfunnels, how and when to offer freebies and giveaways, newsletter networking, social media, marketing and advertising, and more. I’m still learning about the business part of the indie publishing industry every day. New authors should be aware of how much work it really takes!

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

First and foremost, thank you for sticking with me and reading my books! I wouldn’t be able to write for my job if it weren’t for my readers, and I’m so grateful to them. I’m always encouraging readers to sign up for my newsletter, because I don’t spam and I do offer news, updates, cover reveals, giveaways, freebies, and more! I try to make sure my newsletter always has something valuable for the subscribers, to serve as a thank you for supporting me.

I’d also ask readers to take the time to review their favorite books, especially on Amazon. Positive ratings and reviews help authors immensely; conversely, three stars or fewer can be very damaging to an author’s career and visibility on the platform. If you don’t enjoy a book, that’s more than fine, but if you genuinely like it, I encourage you to go give it four or five stars. It’s more important and beneficial than many readers realize, especially for indie authors. Also, if you find errors or typos in a book, it’s best to reach out to the author privately. Reporting it to Amazon can get the book permanently removed from the site, which is something many readers don’t realize. They’re trying to be helpful, but might inadvertently damage the author’s platform. 

That’s part of what I meant before when I said that indie publishing as a business is more complex than many people realize. Authors can’t just write whatever they want and expect it to sell, and they’re often forced to rely on factors outside of their control — like reviews — to be successful. The relationship between authors and readers is a symbiotic one, so I always try to give readers the best bang for their buck, but also ask them to be aware of how their actions — even small ones! — can help or harm indie authors.

Author Jade Thorn #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Jade Thorn

Tell us a bit about yourself… 

Well, I’m in my late 40’s (that’s kind of scary) and I’m married with three gorgeous children. We live in Sydney, Australia.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

Yes, but I thought it wasn’t possible. It certainly wasn’t until the Amazon self publishing path became a possibility. Prior to that, I just wrote stories and ideas in notebooks and didn’t think about them again. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

Most of my stories start with a dream, I wake up with a story, a scene or two replaying in my head until I write it down. Sometimes the characters just start talking to me, usually in the shower, or when I’m hanging out the washing. Either way, not when I have my hands free to start taking notes, lol. 

Jacinta’s story was a dream, but then I came across an image from NASA and things just started falling into place and I knew I had to write it. I wrote the first draft 18 months ago, and I’ve only just got around to rewriting it. (First one was absolute rubbish, lol. I like to think I’ve grown a bit as a writer since then.)

What are you working on now? 

I’m working on Book 2 of Jacinta’s story. I’m rapid-releasing her trilogy. Then I’m going back to my Brotherhood series. There’s another five books to come for that. I’m also working on learning JavaScript to help my eldest son with his homework, lol.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I need silence. With three kids and a husband who works from home, that isn’t easy. I live for the three days a week when my youngest is at preschool. Next year – next year… Just watch this space. 😉

What are your hopes for the future?

Personally, I want to do this for a living. At the moment, I’m earning a part-time wage, and putting in full-time hours. I even go all night without sleep when necessary (deadlines looming). I want to prove to my husband that this is more than a hobby. I want to be able to upload all the stories in my head directly into a computer, then sit and edit. LMAO.

I’m starting up a blurb service, because I seem to be good at it. I write concepts for a cover designer (hi Tash! Shout out to DAZE-designs.com ), and doing blurbs is similar enough that I can do it with ease. (Easier to write for others than for me, lol). Anyway, I’d like for that to get off the ground.

For my family – my eldest has learning difficulties and has just started high school. He’s really struggling. I’d love for him to settle into a pattern and find his feet. I want my middle son to keep doing what he’s doing. He’s a sweet kid – when you can get him away from minecraft, lol. He wants to be an artist. And for my youngest, she’s struggling with speech. We’re making real progress this year, but it’s a hard slog. 
Hubby – I want him to not work so hard, he never stops. 

For the world – peace. I want peace, and more understanding, and less of the self-entitled attitude that seems to be spreading like a virus. It’s a sickness that’s destroying our planet as much as global warming is. Wow, this got dark fast!

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

Yes. 
Treat it like a business from the start. I know that sounds harsh, but hear me out.

Protect yourself. I’ve seen authors taken for rides because of their lack of experience. Get contracts for everything. I mean it, everything. Non-disclosure, confidentiality, expectations of service (PA’s/editors etc), Have an agreement with any volunteers you work with, to protect them as much as you.

Be professional at all times. Have a laugh in private, in public – you’re a persona now. Everything you do is noted and weighed. I’ve seen books plagiarised, files held for ransom, and friendships destroyed, because people found out they weren’t on the same page. Have friends, but keep it separate from what you do. 

I’m not saying become a corporate Karen. I’m saying, be sensible, prudent and most of all reliable. Have dignity, and give it to others.

Finally, reach out. The indie community, for all its flaws, can be an amazing resource. Reach out. There are very few authors who would not help you. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

You’re all nuts!

No, seriously, you’re all nuts. Ha ha ha. 

Ok, this time. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. You encourage me, keep me going and inspire me. I can’t believe that people like my books. I keep waiting for the critics to come along and say “yeah, she’s really rubbish, here’s why”.  A few have, and it’s hard to keep going when I read what they say. So, for everyone who has reached out to me with a word, or a like, or anything positive – thank you. You are a life line and a godsend.
