The Cities by K.A. Knight #review

The Cities (Their Champion Book 3) by K.A. Knight

°

Ivar The Destroyer is dead.

Killed by my hands.

Now, I hold the throne, and the Berserkers look to me for leadership. But loyalty runs deep—can I really trust the men who followed Ivar’s ruthless orders? So much blood has been spilled to end this fight before it ever began, but bigger challenges loom.

My men were captured and taken to The Cities, and now fractured pasts, lies, and love will blur together as I fight to save the only people I care about—the men I love. It’s a race against time, and an exercise in trust requiring the assistance of both family and allies, new and old, from all four corners of the Wastes.

Slave. Champion. Queen. I am all of these and so much more. It’s time I showed them who I really am.

The Wasteland is changing, I can feel it in the air, war…war is coming and I will lead the battle cry.

Long live the Berserker Queen.

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Rihanna, but you would probably know me by RiRi or Mo. I’ve been with my husband Jon for 9 years and married for 5, we have 3 beautiful children together. Kyson 2, Paige 4, Maddie 5. My husband also has a 19yr old son named Jon jr. I enjoy being out doors being adventurous with my kids, baking and reading.

How long have you been a PA?

Since June so not very long.

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

Once I got plugged in with the indie community it did spark my interest.

What do you do as a PA?

I chat with my authors very regularly checking in with any projects they have going on, make sure they keep up on their word count goals, I admin the readers group, I post at least 3 interactive posts a week, i post announcements about upcoming events and projects, I help run the ARC and street teams. I make forms as needed. During an authors take over I will try and make sure I interact on posts and any giveaways I close out and pick winners. I also promote their books, I post pre order links and its live posts, teasers and covers.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t think so.

What are your hopes for the future?

I just want to help these amazing authors get their amazing books around into the world.

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

It’s a learning process, make sure you have a good relationship with your author(s) communication is hugs. An don’t be afraid to ask if you don’t know.

Are you available for new work or booked solid?

As of the moment I am not taking any more authors.

Their Sinner by Serena Akeroyd #review @SerenaAkeroyd


Their Sinner: A Dark, Why Choose, Enemies to Lovers, MC Romance (Hell’s Rebels’ MC Book 1) by Serena Akeroyd

°

Everyone has a weakness, Lucie just happens to have four.

Lucie ‘Lucifer’ Steeler was born a sinner.

The Princess of the Hell’s Rebels’ MC, she was made to raise hell, and in true hellion style, lived to her own creed. A creed that involved falling for five brothers in her daddy’s MC.

Her rebellion lasted until the day her world came tumbling down, and she was exiled from everything she knew. In the blink of an eye, the MC was gone, her home was gone, but worst of all?

The men she loved believed her a traitor.

Now she’s back, with a daughter they don’t know about, and a plan to retrieve the life that was stolen from her.

Tired of sinning on her own, Lucie’s ready to become THEIR SINNER.

And she won’t be taking ‘no‘ for an answer…

°

°

THEIR SINNER is a standalone Why Choose, MC Romance within the complete ‘Hell’s Rebels’ MC’ series and is followed by THEIR SAINT.

Author/Poet April Bock #interview

Please give a warm welcome to Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a California girl living in the cold tundra that is Minnesota state, the summers are so beautiful here though. I love gardening, especially tomatoes. I grow multiple kinds every year. I love all things creepy and have a big makeup obsession.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Actually no, writing was just something I dabbled with although I have been working on a memoir for years, it was a few close author friends that told me if I didn’t publish my poetry, they’d kick my ass. They are taller than me, so…

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Theda Valle, Brenda Britton and Ira Myriam were my inspirations. Their love and absolute faith in my writing ability really have me the crave too open up my mind and write some amazing poetry. Seriously I couldn’t have done it without them.

°

What are you working on now?

A few things actually. My memoir and then my brilliant writing partner Elizabeth Ellis and I are working on a collection of short stories. If you follow us on Facebook you’ve most likely seen them started as “story fuckery time”. We live write when we do those.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I HAVE to have music on, so my headphones are pretty much permanently attached to my head. I don’t have an office, I have a certain spot on my sofa where I sit. I have certain pens I use and only them, and I suppose my biggest quirk is I write EVERYTHING by hand. At least my solo work I do.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To write, have a huge yard and adopt all the doggos! And other animals lol

°

°

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

It’s not as scary as you think it is. Especially with a great support system.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your live and support!! I’ll keep serving your beloved Pocket Fairy Fuckery!! I love you all xoxoPoems of a Phoenix (Pocket Fairy Poetry Book 1)

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi! *waves*

My penname is Victoria Larque, but people call me V. I write Urban Fantasy with a dash of Paranormal Romance. Those are the genres I love reading and I combine them in my writing. My books always have a heavy romantic element, and there will be smexy scenes, but they are essentially plot driven—just to explain what I mean by that. ☺ My first series is called The Myre Series and currently has two books out. I am up to my ears in edits and rewrites of the third installment.

Originally from Namibia, I now live in Germany—in a charming house in the woods—with my very grumpy, antisocial husband, who I love more than anything.

In my spare time I love gaming, watching TV shows and movies, archery (I just started), and sleeping. I can’t emphasize the ‘sleeping’ part enough. Love it.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Well… I have always been a storyteller. From the moment I could talk I told wild tales. My imagination was always a vibrant and very alive place and when I went to boarding school, it was the thing that got me friends. When you’re little and far away from home, stories can help the homesickness, especially late at night when loneliness hits. Being the one who told the stories got me lots of friends very quickly, and I have never stopped telling them.

So, in a way, yes I have always wanted to be an author. But it took a long time until I actually worked up the courage to try it.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

A dream. I dreamt of my MC roaming the nightly streets of a big city, searching for something. There was a sense of hunger and desperation she felt, and that was it. I had to write her story, had to find out what she was looking for and get to know who she was.

°

What are you working on now?

The third installment of the Myre Series. It follows a different character than the first two books do, but fits into and continues the same storyline. It has action, romance, demons, shadows and a volcano the inside of which is a city.

Other than that I am working on a project with another Author that might, or might not see the light of day. Currently we’re working out how to write and plan together, and so far it’s been great fun. I’m not used to writing with another person, but we also beta-read for one another, so we know how the other person ticks, which makes it an awesome experience.

And I am working on an idea for a duology that has been floating around my head for a while now.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I listen to music, specifically hour-long melodic dubstep mixes. It’s not a music genre I’d normally listen to, but—for writing—I need it. ☺

Other than that… not really, no.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to sustain writing books by selling books. I don’t dare dream of it sustaining my entire income… that would be crazy. At least not right now. I take time publishing my work, about a year per book. In the indie community that is tortoise-level slow. People expect a new book every three months (at least). So the sell-through isn’t what I’d like it to be.

And I’d love to be able to actually publish more than one book a year. That would be awesome!

°

°

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

Talk to people and find your tribe. Ask questions, no matter how stupid you think they are. Get a writing buddy, listen to their feedback and criticism. Don’t let the sheer vastness of information and rules overwhelm you, just go through one thing a time.

And finally: Write what you love.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

You are amazing, kittens! I thank each and every one of you for picking up Daph’s story and coming on a ride with me. I would not, and could not, have done any of it without you.

#Preorder Spectral Vibrations by Mercy Desimone @DesimoneMercy

Spectral Vibrations (The Spectrum of Power Book 1) by Mercy Desimone

°

°

In a galaxy far away, a supernova changed a world forever. Energy became the daily fix, sex became currency, and children were a thing of the past. How do you create a future when you can’t move beyond the present?

All I ever wanted was to be a Scientist; what I never anticipated was becoming an Empathic Healer. Luckily, my bondmate, Laz, has always been my center. As a Duo, we have power, but someone believes that we can be more. They say you can’t hear a scream in space… but some of us can feel the pain.

°

°

WHERE WORLDS COLLIDE…..

The day I crashed to Earth, a secret buried in the past became an opportunity for our future. What happens when power is suddenly up for grabs on a world where the color of your aura determines your path, and your vibrational frequency determines your strength? Could the ruling Spectrum soon be a thing of the past? Only if I can create a Spectrum of my own – with the sexy men who keep hovering in my orbit, hoping to anchor their frequency to mine..

Duos, Triads and Quartets, oh my! It’s a cat and mouse game in outer space. What color is your aura?

Author Emily Dawn #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a mom of four, three boys and one badass baby girl (obviously, she’s got three older brothers she’s gotta be tough). I’m a voracious reader, everything from the classics to brand new indie authors. Aside from my love of reading and writing I also have a baking business I run. I do everything from birthday cakes to wedding cakes to cinnamon rolls and pies.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I wrote frequently when I was a teenager. My parents gave me their old typewriter and I went to town. I forgot all about my love of writing in college and grad school but recently re-discovered it. Not to be super millennial here but my therapist suggested writing as way to do something just for me. When I started writing my first book I didn’t know if I’d actually try to publish it or just let it hang out in the depths of my computer.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m inspired by so many things. I can’t pinpoint the exact thing that inspired my current series.

°

What are you working on now?

Right now I’m working on Sanctuary Book 2 of the Lenna Blakely Series. I’m also working on a paranormal romance which is as of now untitled. I’m also working on a dark contemporary reverse harem romance tentatively titled Shattered Starfire. I’m hoping to have two of them released before the end of the year.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I don’t know if it’s a quirk but I make playlists for each book I’m working on. I also carry a big spiral notebook everywhere I go in case I’m up in my head and think of a good line of dialogue or a scene to write it down so I don’t forget.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope that my books are read and enjoyed. A best seller would be nice but when I decided to go all in on this writing thing I said if even one person liked my book I’d be happy and that’s still true for me.

°

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

I’ve found that there are a ton of supportive indie authors out there. I reached out randomly to a couple authors who went above and beyond when I was looking for beta readers and needed help with other random things. So, I would tell new authors to not be afraid to reach out.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I just want to say thank you for reading my book. I’m so appreciative of your support and encouragement.

Author Gloria Hudson #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

First and foremost above all else I am a Christian and a member of the Church of God Assemble.
I place Christ above everything, including myself.
I am a wife and mother.
I am a professional multi-state nurse, a member of ANA, a loyal patient advocate, certified in Tracheotomy and Ventilators for all age groups.
I am also a multi-genre author.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

As a child I had many dreams and aspirations for the further. Writing was one of them.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/ series?

This is the question I have a hard time answering because this book was not wrote in any traditional forms.
* I wrote the middle first.
* Then, I wrote the beginning.
* Then, the ending.
* This book was wrote in different seasons of my life.
* The Middle-I was Happy!
* The Beginning- I was struggling with anxiety and depression.
* The Ending- I have literally done 360* turn- I found hope and peace! Rededicating my life back to Christ, and then I was baptized and then praise God received the gift of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Considering this book was wrote in such different seasons of my life I have had some strong hesitation in publishing it. I had to make sure it was good with my soul to continue with publication, since that’s my first priority now.
As any artist knows, where ever you are, whatever you’re going through-your art reflects that! There’s always a piece of you in each book you write authors, same goes for song writers, and those that make art of any type know that this is true.
To answer your question, my story comes from several different places.
* a dream- middle part
* Real life, historical events, actual news, fairytales, folklore, mythology, biblical history, the Holy Bible and prophecy, conspiracy theories, miracles, mysteries, love and lose, a lot of imagination and basically everything else not mentioned above is woven throughout the rest of the book and not necessarily in that order.
This book was a hard first novel to write. This book is multi-genre in itself. It is an intense read. I would also like to add that in no way is to be taken as anything other than fictional. I say this because it will leave you wondering. I also do not recommend this book for anyone under 18 years of age.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I am currently working on a novel about anxiety and depression. I have a blog that I have started that goes along with the book, sharing some insights to overcome anxiety and depression; some details found on the blog will not be in my next book. My blog is a help for those who suffer with anxiety and depression, to learn to live again and get their lives back.
When I started writing my story Never Alone, I noticed how many people personally and in general/casual contact, who had post on their FBP on how sad they were or how anxious they were or just wished they felt like themselves again. That is when I decided to start my Book Blog, You are Never Alone.
My novel is a story not a self help book. My blog is a self help blog.
I will be writing a Christian self help book. I have yet to name it as of yet, but I know there is an interest and need for help in our society with anxiety and depression at an all time high. I just feel the need to offer any help I can since I have been there.
I am also working on a children’s book called Lucky, The Love Puppy designed for adventurous 3-6/7 year olds and I am doing all my illustrations for it myself. Wish me luck!

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I listen to music, certain songs are better than others to help me write and it really depends on the book I am writing also.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Right now, I am just taking things one day at a time. I’ve learnt that things worth having are worth the wait, and the most precious of gifts are free.

°

°

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

Yes!! No matter what anyone thinks or says; you don’t have to be perfect! Be yourself and don’t give up! There’s a lot of critics, not everyone is going to like everything you write, so be prepared to be you!
Because you are different from everyone else; your writing will be also be different.
Best advice I was ever given was by an English Professor. He said, “Write as if you are the person you are writing about and write about what you know!”
If you know love, write about love, hurt and pain- write that, betrayal- write that, etc… if you write of those things you have felt; especially while you feel them or right afterwards your emotions are going to flow and people will respond to your emotions because they will literally flow out into your book and reach out and touch them.
We all go through the same ups and downs in our lives at different times, response for an emotionally written book, will touch a person; just like it did you when you experienced that emotion.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

For anyone-Be true to who you are inside, don’t be afraid to try something new, live your life while you can- remember to be careful and to be smart, research or reach out depending on your circumstances before you jump!
Never compromise who you are, don’t judge another; you don’t know where or what they have been through or how they come to the place they are at. Try to agree, but if you can’t agree, then agree to disagree respectfully. Find your passion and then you’ll find yourself!
Also, remember it’s never too late to do a 360!
Inspiration is interwoven into each of us, we all have a purpose, embrace what is placed in your heart; it’s there for a reason!

Thank you for the invitation for the interview… I hope you have found it informative and that you have enjoyed our time together and my sort of testimony during this interview.
I hope someone found inspiration and needed my advice.
Thank you for your time,
Author Gloria Hudson
