Author Tirza Schaefer #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Tirza Schaefer

Tell us a bit about yourself…

My name is Tirza Schaefer and I am a mother of three children and one cat, a romance author and a spiritual Goddess coach who also writes articles about Goddesses, Gods, Power Animals and so on. I have just finished writing my 32nd book and am very excited that it is the longest I have written so far, there are lots of interesting characters in it and that I have incorporated some archetypal themes as well.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve been telling stories to my sister at night even before I could read and write, so it’s always been part of me. However, the explicit dream of publishing a book one day came in my teenage years when I thought it would be the coolest ever when my children could one day say, our Mama wrote a book. Fast forward 35 years and here I am on book 32 and loving it!

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I love reading contemporary biker, military and badboy romance novels and because I also love reverse harem (most of which seem to be in the fantasy realm), I decided to write a standalone novel on a biker gang falling in love with one woman. The book is called “Her Badass Bikers” and will have to go through editing still before publication. There is also a slight reverse age gap in it because I write for mature women, no cheating and happily ever after guaranteed. So listening to an audiobook of a single biker love story, I decided to write a biker reverse harem story and also because I needed a break away from the series I am working on as well, the two current ones being Seals in Spain, of which Book 1, Tank, is already published and The Milf Diaries, of which Books 1, Izzy, and 2, Ria, are already published. Book 3 will have the characters of the Seals in Spain trilogy in it for a guest appearance.

What are you working on now?

I’ve just finished writing the rough draft of “Her Badass Bikers” and it’s been a wild ride to create this book. Nothing went according to plan and character showed up all over the place, hijacking the story and extending it from a planned 45-50K to a currently 104K file. However, throughout the writing process (including going bananas at times), I have really fallen deeply for this story, the characters and the journey I have travelled on to bring this book into being. It is richer, more complex and vastly more beautiful for the characters’ meddling, so I will be eternally grateful for their continued interference, no matter how unnerving it may have been at certain stages in the writing.

Do you have any quirks while working?

My greatest joys for inspiration will always be travelling and comfortable cafés with a real character but as this is mostly not my daily routine. I sit at my desk, on the patio or even at night in bed and type. I love drinking ginger-orange tea and for nobody to disturb me. Sometimes, I like to listen to music as well, Nicky Jam or Daddy Yankee mostly but I also love 90s hiphop, but mostly I like peace and quiet. And when I need a break from being creative, I may just bingewatch a Netflix series like Vampire Diaries, Vikings, Bridgerton, Downton Abbey, Big Bang or a European historical drama, whatever strikes my mood. I’m pretty open that way.

What are your hopes for the future?

I want my books to be made into movies or Netflix series, depending. Other than that, I just want to be close to my family and friends and spend quality time with the people I love when I’m not writing.

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

That is quite complex but there are a number of social media platforms you should be on and I have a list you can access for free when you sign up to my newsletter on my website tirzaschaefer.com

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I am an approachable person and you can email me, ask about my books, tell me how you liked them and even ask my characters questions. They’ll definitely answer, too. So I’d be thrilled to hear from you. And please feel free to follow me on social media. Due to platform specific restrictions I cannot always follow back or accept friend requests because I am at maximum capacity on most but that doesn’t mean I don’t care and am not happy to hear from you. And please, that is a general request for all authors, when you’ve enjoyed a book, please leave a positive review. You may not know about the various platforms restrictions on running campaigns and even showing a book when it doesn’t have a certain number of positive (4 or 5 stars) reviews but be assured, they are very real and hard to overcome for indie authors. So the more reviews you leave, even short ones, the more you help and support and author. And for you, that’s absolutely free. For an author, it means the world. Thank you!

Den of Vipers by @K_AKnight #CoverReveal

Den of Vipers

Ryder, Garrett, Kenzo, and Diesel—the Vipers.

They run this town and everyone in it. Their deals are as sordid as their business, and their reputation is enough to bring a grown man to his knees, forcing him to beg for mercy. They are not people you mess with, yet my dad did. The old man ran up a debt with them and then sold me to cover his losses.

Yes, sold me.

They own me now.

I’m theirs in every sense of the word. But I’ve never been meek and compliant. These men, they look at me with longing. Their scarred, blood-stained hands holding me tight. They want everything I am, everything I have to give, and won’t stop until they get just that. They can own my body, but they will never have my heart.
The Vipers? I’m going to make them regret the day they took me.


This girl? She bites too.

Fearless by @CrystalAshBooks #newrelease

Fearless (Steel Demons MC Book 3)

I once did everything in my power to save lives.
Now I stand aside and watch men die.

The man I love must kill one of his own. Someone he considered a brother, a fellow Steel Demon, put the entire club in danger. As president, Reaper must crush every last threat to his people, or the Steel Demons MC could cease to exist altogether.

Reaper is ruthless. His justice is punishing. But despite his name, he takes no pleasure in executing someone he once trusted. The task is weighing on him. That’s why he needs me.

But he’s not the only one. 

The vice president with the seductive charm needs me. The silent soldier with terrifying nightmares needs me. And the sweet, golden man with the falcon on his shoulder? It scares me how much I need him.

All of these men have killed without hesitation. They all battle demons I can’t begin to fathom. In my journey to combat violence with healing, I found my home with men just as cruel as they are loving. 

Can I be fearless enough to love them all? 

Sons of Anarchy meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this dystopian reverse harem adventure! Fearless is the third book in the Steel Demons MC saga. This series is full of kindle-melting steam and dangerous men who take what they want. Proceed with caution if easily offended. 

My review

Reading order:

Baby + the Late Night Howlers by Kathryn Moon #review

Baby + the Late Night Howlers

°

°

Baby’s heat is coming…

After years of assuming she was a beta, discovering her omega designation in a biker bar surrounded by alphas isn’t exactly fulfilling any fantasies for Baby. She only wanted to have a fun night, not get knotted, bitten, and bonded. Now Baby’s entire life is about to turn upside down.

With her heat on its way, she needs to find a pack, a nest, and alphas she can trust.

The Late Night Howlers have given up hope…

°

°

After years of waiting for an omega to choose them, this motorcycle club of alphas is ready to move on with their lives. Until one sweet woman takes a chance on them.

A rundown bar and apartment building is no place to spoil a new omega but the Howlers are determined to do right by Baby when she needs them. All they have to do is keep her satisfied while resisting the mouthwatering temptation to bite and bond her, permanently.

When a rival MC comes sniffing after Baby, her safety is put at risk and the Howlers may be torn apart forever.

Author Ivy Fox #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Ivy Fox

Tell us a bit about yourself?

Eeeek! The hardest question ever! LOLOL. Okay, so I’m a little bit goofy, a lot dorky and a bit shy believe it or not. Once I feel comfortable with people though, they get the crazy laughs-too-loud Ivy. Hehehe I’m a big kid in a grown up body. Just ask my husband. hehehe

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Oh gosh yes!! In the 5th grade, my school used to do assemblies every Friday where you could put on performances, and my friends and I would always do some play I had written out. I loved it! Seeing my stories come to life was such a thrill that even at the tender age of ten I knew I wanted to write professionally. It was always my dream and I have an attic full of old journals to prove it. hehehe

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I get inspired by all sorts of things. A ballad or a song that holds a lyric that touches my heart, or a photo of the character’s muse. Right now, I’m inspired by anything that is related to forbidden and tragic love. If it touches my heart, then the words come fluidly.

What are you working on now? So at this moment, I’m writing the second book of the Rotten Love duet – Rotten Men.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Hehehehe! Oh yeah! I hate writing when I have my boys in the house. And when I say boys, I mean my hubby and thirteen year old kiddo. I need silence to concentrate and hear the characters words in my head. It’s hard to do that when I hear Mom and Babe every five minutes. hehehe

What are your hopes for the future?

I just want to continue to learn my craft and try to publish the best stories I can. My main goal is to be able to write that one love story that will touch readers’ hearts and that it stays with them long after they’ve read it.

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

JUST DO IT!! If you see the story in your head, just put pen to paper ( or fingers to keyboard) and write it. You will never know if you don’t go for it. Sure there will be days where your insecurities will run rampant. Don’t listen to those pesky voices, but instead pay closer attention to the characters that deserve to make their way into the world. They deserve it and so do you

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

My deepest thanks to all that have bought and read my books and are with me through this incredible adventure of mine. I could not have done this without your support and I will remain forever humbled and eternally grateful. Xoxo
