Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi, I’m Carrie Whitethorne, USA Today bestselling author of paranormal and urban fantasy romance. I write everything from second chance love to fated mates, all with a mythological twist.

I’ve been self published for three years, and started out with a Fae romance. This developed into something of a Saga, that I followed up with an Egyptian mythology reverse harem series.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always loved to write, but I never dreamed I’d ever be published.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series is a Wizard of Oz reverse harem. But this isn’t the Oz you know. 100 years have passed since Dorothy returned home, and lots of things have changed.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m currently moving between a Military reverse harem series for my contemporary pen name, Shae Banks, and an urban fantasy series I hope to get out early next year.
The fantasy is an interesting mix of witches, demons, and many other mystical races and their fight against a common enemy.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I flit about a lot before I settle on a project. I’ll have something in mind, outline it, then someone entirely unrelated to that story will pop into my head and I’ll set that story up too. This is usually how I end up with two projects running at once.

°

°

What are your hopes for the futur?

To reach more people with my work and deliver the books they want to read.

°

°

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

Save for the editor. Take the advice. Accept criticism and learn from it. Keep going.

This isn’t an overnight success story. It’s easier than traditional publishing, but the hurdles are high.
Your first book won’t be the book you produce in two years time. You will learn. You will grow. You’ll get better and your readers will see it and love you for it.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you.
It’s my readers and their feedback that keeps me writing.

Author BC Morgan #interview

Please give a warm welcome toTell us a bit about yourself

I’m 26 in 2 days and I’m going onto a pump for type one diabetes ❤️ I’m a mum to fraternal twins who’ll be 4 next Valentine’s Day. I’m from England born and raised and writing is my passion. Not just books but poems and songs as well. I love to sing, bake and watch anything with Ryan Reynolds or Tom Ellis. I also have a awesome fella and we tease each other relentlessly but we’re always supportive of each other too.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

When I was younger I wanted to be a nurse or horse rider 😂 I’ve been writing since I was roughly about 12 and fell in love with it. Always wanted to publish but was to scared too and decided to pursue mechanics, got fully qualified but health got in the way.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

It started off as a random idea that popped into my head, I’ve always loved supernatural style films and programmes and the Greek mythology fascinated me 😂 but I couldn’t get the idea to stick and then I was moaning out loud and my fella helped me to finally work out exactly what to do. As for the characters there’s a little of me in everything I write and sometimes true life experiences. Not everything but I find it easier to write from experience, and book boyfriends 😂

°

What are you working on now?

I’m working on my new series called The Drop of Death. It’s a Rh dystopian, apocalyptic world with a twist. I’m currently writing book 2.Do you have any quirks while writing?

Shouting at my characters, crying when I write something sad, talking to my pup. I apparently pull faces depending on what I’m writing but couldn’t say for sure 😂 and music gotta have some noise in the background.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’m not in this for the money, I write because I love too and I wanted to share it. Ideally I hope to make enough to continue funding the other books I write, but either way I’ll find a way to make it happen. My mum thinks they’ll become films but I laugh it off every time not something that really interests me 😂

°

°

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

Never stop writing, if you love it then just keep going. Don’t take any negative reviews too hard, there will always be someone who won’t enjoy your work, just like they’ll be those who’ll love them and want to read more. Always find the right people for you, be it support or to work with or my case, both. I have a great team behind me who I absolutely love chanderella daily is my editor and my sister from another mother while savannah richey is the my pa and a fantastic friend. That’s not even mentioning the beta readers I have who keep me on the straight and narrow.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you. Thank you for taking the time to read my book, for taking a chance on such a new author and making me feel a little less like a newbie. The reviews whether 5 star or 1 help me to learn and improve. And I honestly read every review I get and try to reply to every message or comment that is posted for me. If I’ve ever missed yours I’m sorry, but feel free to do it again and I’ll try not to miss it for a second time. I love you guys and I couldn’t have done this without you. Thanks fo joining me on this crazy journey and I’m sure we’ll all enjoy the ride.

Author Cate Corvin #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi! I’m Cate Corvin, and I write reverse harem romance. Usually it’s in paranormal, but I’ve lately had the itch to branch out into other genres… as long as it’s a #whychoose book! I love coffee, cats, and books, and my awesome family.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Absolutely! Writing has been a dream of mine since I was a kid, and it only took me 30 years to get here!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m currently working on a series called Bonds of Blood, which is dark urban fantasy. The first three books will take place in an academy, but each trilogy in the series will be a new heroine in a new setting, and will all tie together into one large world. I really just wanted to write a huge, sprawling universe with gods, monsters, and slayers.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m just about to start Bad Blood, the second book in Bonds of Blood! This is the second book of the bully romance trilogy, in which revenge is taken and things start to get wild.

Do you have any quirks while writing? I always need a coffee and my cat, specific playlists, and I often make new notes as I go per book. By the end, they usually don’t resemble what I had originally planned out.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To keep writing! My dream would be to just write constantly for the rest of my life, the ideas never stop.

°

°

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

Always keep writing. That’s the most important thing. You can plan everything down to a T, but in the end, actually writing is the most important part. And keep doing it over and over!

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Yes! Thank you all so much for reading and supporting indie authors. It’s one thing to know we’d never stop writing, but knowing that others have read and enjoyed our books, and that we’ve given you a fantasy escape for a little while is the best thing ever!

Author Everly Taylor #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am a single mom of three crazy boys and our lives are ruled by our sassy Husky and our wannabe Chihuahua. When I am not writing I am tattooing, painting or going on adventures with my boys. I simply try to enjoy whatever I am doing to the fullest, life is too short to do otherwise.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Not at all. I never even thought about it really until this past year. Sure, I liked English, I liked writing the stories that were required, but that’s just my nature. I had never considered I would actually be writing books that people would enjoy.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My inspiration for Satan’s Gift was really simple… my boys learning to write and getting their letters mixed up. I thought how funny would it be if they mixed up Santa and Satan as its so easy to do. I also wanted to come up with a story where the good/asshole guys were not who you were expecting ❤

°

°

What are you working on now?

There are a ton. Lol – Currently (as in today) I am working on the next book of Her Seven as well as an exciting Antho for Phases of Change. This one I am super excited about

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

So… I have this dildo on my desk… when I get angry I tend to throw it at stuff…. Yeah…. You asked.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I really just hope to keep writing and putting my words out there for people to enjoy. To be able to help them find that escape from everyday life even for a little bit would be such a blessing.

°

°

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

Your first book is the scariest… its big and its new, but don’t give up. You can totally do this.

Find your own voice and don’t try to copy someone else because you think its what readers want to hear… They want to hear YOU.

Reach out and find a group of like-minded author friends that will be your support when your ready to slam the laptop shut and call it quits.

Most of all, remember WHY you started writing in the first place, and have fun.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you so much for taking your chance on me, and picking up that first book. Without you I would not be where I am today and I am so humbled and honored to not only call you fans, but friends. Thank you so much for all of your support. Know you can always reach out to me, I would love to hear from you about anything!

When in doubt, eat a cupcake 😊

Please give a warm welcome to

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi! I’m Devyn. I live in Montana where the air always smells delicious and it doesn’t get dark until ten o’clock in the summer. When I’m not writing, I’m obsessed with baking and am on a mission to find the best lemon tart recipe!

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, actually. For a long time I wanted to be an actor. I went to theatre school and pursued that for a while. But I had always loved books and writing, and it suddenly clicked with me that I could make THAT a career, and it felt so right that I made that the goal.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’ve always LOVED fae books, from Laurel K. Hamilton’s Merry Gentry series to Sarah J. Maas’s A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES. I liked the idea of writing about a beautiful world that was totally different from ours. With those things in mind, the idea for The Carnal Court just kind of fell into my head!

°

What are you working on now?

I’m working on EUPHORIA (Book 2 in the series), but also on an RH that’s a little darker in tone and not set in the same world. I’m playing around with the idea of a rockstar RH too! I have so many ideas—I need more hours in the day to write them all…

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I need a cup of tea while I write. The simple ritual of making the tea helps settle my mind and get me in the headspace for writing!

°

What are your hopes for the future?

That this series connects with an audience that loves it! I care a lot about this story, and it makes me really happy to share it. That’s why I write. So I hope that others will enjoy the story too!

°

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

Consistency. In your schedule and output, publishing, etc. Momentum is hugely helpful, and it’s easier to gain that if you’re consistent with yourself.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I’m so excited to meet you—and I sincerely hope that you enjoy losing yourself in the world of the Carnal Court

Euphoria: A Reverse Harem Fantasy Romance (The Carnal Court Book 2)

Author Graceley Knox #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

This is always the toughest question… I’m in my late twenties, I am a fur-mama to four bengals and two mini schnauzers. I love coffee and tea. I’m from New England originally but now I’m in Florida. I’m also a total nerd, have quite a few tattoos, I’m pagan and currently obsessed with bookish candles from Frostbeard Studio.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, I actually have not. I went to school for marketing and public relations. I’ve got my masters degree in all that stuff, but I started working at a bookstore when I was 18 and continued the trend through college and a bit after. I ended up in publishing, and then had an idea and wrote my first book, Mark of Truth. I’ve always been an avid reader so my friends and family say they always assumed I’d end up doing something with books, but I had no idea I could even write a book!

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m inspired by obscure mythology most of the time. So I usually always start there and build the world. I’m big into history and the old ways of life before technology, although I love technology. Can you say Netflix LOL.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now, me and my partner in crime/sister from another mister, D.D. Miers are working on a super secret project I can’t go into any details about… and we’re working on finishing up the Kresova series. I’m also working on the first book in my new Wild Huntress trilogy. First sneak peeks of that book can be found over on Book + Main.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Hmm… I’m not sure if I have any quirks while writing… I like to write things in order if that counts? Where as Dee can jump around and write random bits of things anywhere in the book. Now a days I typically have a candle lit, and coffee close by. I listen to music as well typically.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to see my books on more shelves and in more bookstores of course! I’d also love to see my books in other languages. Otherwise, I just want to keep writing, and meeting incredible readers who make it possible!

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

Do you have all day? I’ve been in this industry in one way or another for the past nine years. I’ll give some top tips though.

-Write your own rules. Literally. Don’t follow the rules anyone tells you that are there. Write your story as you see fit.

-Hire a professional editor. If there’s one place in this industry you don’t want to be cheap in or cut corners, it’s this. Definitely get a developmental edit for your first few books, or all of them, I know people who love them every time. I am still learning at least one or two new lessons about my craft with every book I have edited.

-With those edits, some of the best advice I got when doing edits, because it can be super overwhelming, is open up the document, stare at all the red, scroll through it, then close the document for at least 24 hours before you dive in. This way you’re less emotional from the shock of all the red on the page.

-Always be kind to fellow authors. There are plenty of readers to go around. Avoid any drama, and always be honest about your intentions when speaking to someone you don’t know.

– It’s better to be up front and honest if you want something from another author than to beat around the bush and stroke their ego. 9 times out of 10 if someone comes right out and sends me a message to like their page or for help with marketing etc, I’ll say yes vs. someone who bullshits me.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you. Merci. Grazie. Danke. Gracias. Takk. I see all of you and thank you isn’t enough to explain the love and gratitude I have for all of you. I never thought I’d have readers from all over the world, let alone outside my own friends and family. So thank you for making me part of your family. I hope I get to hug and meet each and every one of you in person!

Knox’s Vixens

Author Tessa Tempest #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi, I’m Tessa and I write fantasy romance and sexy gothic folklore filled with poison flowers, dark forests, and princesses who can save themselves. My first book under this name is Poison Garden, the first book in The Beautiful and the Deadly saga.

When I’m not writing, I teach college English and run a small business with my husband designing journals, notebooks, blank comic books, and totes at Wayfarer Journals. I have two boys, 6 and 9, who like to get in on the designing action too.

I’m also a huge TV junkie. TV is just another medium of storytelling, after all. So much of what I’ve learned about dialogue and where to cut scenes to leave readers wanting more comes from watching my favorite shows with a notebook at the ready. Some of my faves include Gilmore Girls, Doctor Who (though I’m behind), Umbrella Academy, the OA, and pre-Neagan Walking Dead. It totally counts as research, right? Right now I’m bingeing How to Get Away With Murder.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, probably since I was around seven or eight. I love stories. When I was in third grade, I made my own (cardboard) boxed set of these mini books I wrote about Sweet Tooth the blue dinosaur because all the books I loved at that age were part of a series, so of course mine had to be too.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The first nugget of an idea for Poison Garden came years ago from a picture and article I found on Pinterest about a real poison garden. I’m not sure if the one at Alnwick in the UK still exists as the link I saved is now broken, but it said: “ There is a garden in England where behind closed doors only poisonous plants will grow. The guides warn, ‘Do not touch the plants. Do not even smell them.’ “

What a cool setting for a story, right? The idea captured my imagination so fully that I tucked it away until I could find the right place for it. When I started crafting Astrid’s story, all of the pieces fell into place.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m deep into the world of Poisoned Paradise, the sequel to Poison Garden. You’ll see Valkyries, more of Astrid’s powers and her hot Viking warriors, more vengeful gods, an impossible journey, and a race to the underworld to retrieve a vial for Loki and save Drysi, Astrid’s best friend, before she evanesces.

On top of that, I’m finishing up a Poison Garden coloring book that should be out this summer.

I’ve also got a few other projects I’m adding ideas to. The first is a series planned for next year set in a world where fairy tales repeat themselves and Poppy, who has just learned she’s a Sleeping Beauty, must team up with the most unlikely allies: the brooding and possibly very dangerous Blue Beard, the flighty Eternal Boy, and womanizing Prince Charming to try and stop their stories and save all of their kingdoms.

I’m also kicking around ideas for a funny witchy Academy series and a horror romance.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

With my sensory processing issues, it’s very difficult for me to focus and write with any distracting sounds. So no music for me. No background noise if I can help it.

I also handwrite about 85% of my first drafts.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I want to keep telling stories as long as people want to read them.

°

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

Finish things. Start stories and write them all the way through to the end. Also, keep in mind that a “great writer” is not something you ever are or are not. Telling great stories is something all writers continually work toward.

Also, embrace the suck of your first efforts. Sticking with it until you develop your skills is so important when though it’s so uncomfortable.

There is a great video floating around from Ira Glass of This American Life with so many nuggets of wisdom on this subject.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I’m so grateful to every single person who reads my books and gets to know the people who live inside my head. If you liked Poison Garden, I think you will LOVE what comes next for Astrid and her guys in Poisoned Paradise, which I hope to have out late August or early fall.

Tessa’s Ravenous Readers

Author Carrie Whitethorne #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Carrie

Hi!

I’m Carrie and I write under two names. Carrie Whitethorne for paranormal romance and urban fantasy, and Shae Banks for contemporary romance.

I live in the north west of England with my husband and children, and I write full time.

I began writing just after my youngest child started school- three years ago now- and haven’t looked back.

In three years I’ve become a USA Today bestselling author, have published eleven books, and have my first author signing at the end of this month.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No.

I’ve always written, but I never believed I would write an entire novel and see it published.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

I’m in the process of marketing a reverse harem series. It has a strong Ancient Egypt theme and centers around a competitive eater and three genies.

I’ve always loved mythology. My first series explored European fae myths, and this one delves into the Egyptian gods and their roles.

As for the competitive eating, Kate Ovens is my tiny blond hero. I just don’t know how she does it.

°

°

What are you working on now?

°

Right now I’m writing the third book in my summer series. It’s another reverse harem, because I love having so many different personalities at play in one relationship and working out the dynamic between the characters, and is based on The Wizard of Oz.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I need music. I need to be able to block everything out.

I also need a constant supply of Pepsi max and an empty house. Some days are better than others. On the days the words won’t come I take myself out for a walk or turn up at a friend’s house begging for coffee.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

°

That I can keep writing. Each series takes hundreds of hours to write, weeks to edit with a beta reader, professional editor, and proof reader phase to pass through, and marketing is time consuming and a bit of a minefield.

It’s a labor of love, and I hope to keep working at it for many years to come.

°

°

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

°

Take your time.

A quality book isn’t written over night or cheap to produce.

Criticism isn’t bad. It’s a learning resource. Learn to take it, apply it, and grow from it.

Mistakes are the only way we learn. You’re going to make a lot of them, and that’s good. It means you learn more.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you.

Ultimately, I write for my readers and their continued support is what keeps me going.

Please give a warm welcome to author Maria Savva

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

I live in London, and have worked as a solicitor for about 25 years. I currently specialise in Family Law. I work in a university and supervise students at the legal advice centre within the university, where we give free advice to the public. The students I’m supervising are training to become barristers. It’s quite a unique set up. I also take them to court each week, and we assist people who attend court without representation; the students get advocacy experience, and the clients get free advice, so it’s good for everyone, I think.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

It wasn’t something I consciously chose to be. I’ve just developed a habit of writing over the years, and it’s not something I could stop doing now.

I’ve always had a vivid imagination, and I loved creative writing at school. I was a bookworm when I was a child, reading hundreds of books, and I always dreamed of writing a novel. I remember watching films when I was younger and seeing the credits, ‘based on the novel by…’—it’s always been a dream of mine to have a film made based on one of my books.

I started writing short stories in my mid-twenties and then challenged myself to write a novel when I found myself out of work when I was about 27. That’s when I wrote “Coincidences”. After that, I never stopped writing. I enjoy it.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

My new novel, “Evil Never Dies”, is a sequel to my novel “The Spider”. It will be published sometime this year. I already have a lovely cover design, by Kat from Aeternum Designs, who designed the covers for my books “A Time To Tell”– second edition, “The Spider”, and “Lost and Found”.

The edited draft of “Evil Never Dies” is currently with beta readers, and once I get their feedback I will make the final tweaks and publish the book.

°

I suppose my inspiration for “Evil Never Dies” would have been the character Rex. I became intrigued by that character when I wrote “The Spider” and wanted to write another book to see how far I could explore this strange individual. I’m not sure whether it’ll become a series, but I can say that I think the ending to “Evil Never Dies” is open enough for at least another book to be written.

Time will tell.The inspiration for “The Spider” was probably, like most of my writing, inspired by the world around me. and usually darker side of life and human behaviour, which I try to make sense of in my writing and in the characters that I create.

°

What are you working on now?

°

I am at that point where I’ve just finished a novel and haven’t yet started the next one. I’m always writing, though, whether it’s blogging or short stories. I have just written a new short story, which will be available free to all subscribers of Darcia Helle’s newsletter. Darcia is one of the best indie writers out there, and she recently contacted a few authors to put together a free anthology. I’m happy to be part of that. As well as the new story that I wrote for the anthology, it will also feature one of my stories, “Where Do We Go?’, that was originally published on The Write Launch, online literary magazine.

I am hoping to find time to put together another collection of short stories soon.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

Not really, not anymore. I just write. I can write anywhere, these days. I used to only write while sitting up in bed in the evening, and only ever with a pen and paper (I wrote my first three novels, and many of my earlier short stories, with pen and paper in the old-fashioned way). I used to also always need complete silence. But now I can just pick up a pen or start typing whenever and wherever.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

°

World peace. Is that even possible? I don’t like seeing and hearing about all the endless hate and violence every day. I also don’t understand why people are so intolerant these days and get offended so easily. I’m hoping people will become more understanding and kinder.

°

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

°

Not really. People write for many different reasons. The only thing I would say is always remember that not everyone is going to like your writing and that’s okay.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

I know I have at least a handful of loyal readers, and to them I would like to say thank you. Thank you for taking time to read my books and stories, and for the wonderful reviews. I am grateful that you have chosen to read my books and that you enjoy them. It makes me happy to think that my stories can entertain others, as that is what writing is all about really.

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hmm, where do I start. I’m a Sci-fi author. I plan to venture out to other genres in the near future. I’m actually writing two contemporary romance novellas that will be out this summer. I’m originally from Nova Scotia, Canada. After meeting my husband I moved to the USA. Flash forward 8 years. I currently live in Alabama with my husband, two sons, four cats, and my fish. We move around a lot. I live a quiet lifestyle of housewife, and stay at home mom. My life is a bit norm, so I don’t have any crazy stories to tell.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Surprisingly no, I recently wanted to become one — I want to say within the last 4 years. I adore so many great authors. I’d have to give them all credit for me writing today. If it wasn’t for new authors creating new worlds and books, I likely wouldn’t have been inspired. So, I’d like to shout out to all the wonderful authors out there, thank you for being my inspiration!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My inspiration was fear. Having fear is healthy, but what if you wrote about that fear to help overcome it? So, that’s what I did. I have a huge fear of snakes. HUGE. Alabama has a lot of snakes in its green wonderland. Often times, when I go for nature walks with my boys, we see snakes sunning themselves. I usually walk (run) by them, I have respect for them. Meaning, I keep away from them. Though I fear our serpent friends, I know a good amount about them. I decided to write about them to help myself. So far, it’s not working, at all — but the experience has been a blast!

°

°

What are you working on now?

Well, I just finished book two in my Sky Serpent Clan series. I’m doing two contemporary romance novellas, it’ll be part of a Forever safe series which will feature many other amazing authors. After that I plan to write about Tara. She’s the next in my Sky Serpent Clan series line. That’s what I’m currently working on right now.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Possibly? I always have one of my four cats, tea, and some form of candy within arms reach.

What are your hopes for the future?

I know I’m not perfect, but one day I hope my writing will grow, and get better with time. That people who read my books, will continue to enjoy them.

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

As a newbie myself, I want others out there to know — don’t be afraid to take that jump. Take the first step, you can do it! Write what makes you happy and don’t stop. Surround yourself with other authors and support one another. Having author friends are wonderful. Lastly, don’t take bad reviews to heart. Not everyone will enjoy your book and that’s okay, that doesn’t mean others won’t enjoy your book. I’ll be cheering you all on from the sidelines.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

A huge thank you to everyone that has read my first book, and my second. To those that helped me spread the word around, and those that have supported me, it helped a lot. To the spectacular readers that have posted reviews stating they loved my book, and gave me tips. You make writing worth it. You’re all truly appreciated!
