Author M.F. Moody #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author M.F. Moody

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Well, I’m a wife and Mum, ex-high school teacher, with a boy-child as well as 3 fur-babies. I’m Australian, but moved over to the UK back in 2015 due to my hubby’s work (he’s British, although we met and married in Australia).
I’ve lived up and down the east coast of Australia, and love to travel. I’ve been to every state (except for Western Australia) back home, have visited both islands of New Zealand, and have travelled to South Korea, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Eire (Republic of Ireland).
I’m the youngest of 3 girls, am a natural red-head, a typical Sagittarius and a typical Goat/Ram/Sheep (Chinese Zodiac), and I have absolutely *no* filter. I love reading, coffee, wine, reading, baking, sleeping, reading, writing, watching movies, and did I mention reading?

Have you always wanted to become an author?

In some shape or form, yes. I would love to write stories as a child, and my sisters and I would often make up our own little skits and stories and perform them. I wrote poetry and short stories as a teen, and have had several published in various places. I also wrote a blog when I first moved to the UK.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

A dream. Quite a few of the stories I’ve written or have in my ‘to be written’ pile are from dreams I’ve had. It came to me about 2 years ago, when there were a lot of the RH Academy/Bully books being written. I love shifters, always have, and I wanted to put my own twist on things – the characters are all adults (even if only by a year or so), there is a fated-mate rejection, and it’s a reverse-harem. Unfortunately for me, the book I was working on at that point in time (‘Disconnect’) wouldn’t let me write anything that wasn’t related to it. I wasn’t able to start writing my ‘Altered Shifters Universe’ books until August of last year.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on 2 projects at the moment. I’m going through the final edits for ‘Altered: Part Two’, in the hopes I can release it in May – it’s currently scheduled for a May 1st release, but I might need to push it back depending on how much work it needs. I’m also writing the first draft for ‘Mythic’, which was *supposed* to be the second book in that interlinked universe, but then ‘Altered’ was split into a duet rather than a standalone.

Do you have any quirks while working?

Music and coffee. I have several rather large mugs that I will guzzle from as I write, and I also have a pair of Razer Kraken (Kitty Edition) headphones that I wear while writing. They light up. I create a playlist for each major book/series I write, and at the moment, my Spotify playlist for my ‘Altered Shifters Universe’ has around 180 songs on it. Probably closer to 200, if I’m honest. I will zone out completely, and get *very* irritated if I’m interrupted, although I will stop fairly frequently for coffee and toilet breaks.

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to be able to continue writing. I also hope that more people will find and enjoy my stories. I’d *love* to attend one of the big book events as an author, rather than as an attendeee, but at the same time, I don’t know if I’d ever be considered good enough to be invited. It’s a dream, a nice dream, but (at least in my mind) unlikely to be anything more than that.
I’d also love for one of my books/series to be picked up and gushed over by Ruby Dixon, Tiffany Roberts, Lillian Lark, Tate James, or a number of other authors I admire. Their opinion matters to readers, and if they comment on a book’s readability/enjoyment on their platforms, then that book is likely to see a spike in interest. Oh, and if I can get one of those mythical orange banners on Amazon, or even hit the NYT best-seller list, that would be a miracle, lol…

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

Find your people. Find other authors who are like you, and support and uplift each other. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT compare your journey to theirs, and vice versa. Encourage, uplift, share resources, leave reviews, promote yourself and each other. I was lucky enough to stumble on a wonderful group of authors who have encouraged, uplifted, advised, critiqued, sympathised, and just loved me for being me. There are enough haters out there who will try to tear you down (and unfortunately, some of them may even be other authors), but if you find your people, lick them. Slobber all over them and make them yours.
Also, not every negative comment is meant in a destructive way. Constructive criticism, while pointing out your mistakes/flaws, is meant to help you grow as a writer. Don’t just focus on the negative comments, look for that silver lining that a lot (but not all) will be trying to push. If you open yourself up to *constructive* criticism, and actually *listen* to the feedback and positive information someone is trying to impart, you’ll find yourself growing as an author. My books would be a lot crappier if I had ignored the constructive criticism I received when I first wrote them.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you. From the dark and depraved depths of my black and shrivelled little soul, thank you. Without you, without my readers, without all of your support, I’d still be sitting there wondering if I’d ever get around to publishing that book. So thank you.

Author Lillian Lark #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Lillian Lark

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Hi! I’m Lillian Lark. I’m a romance author from the saltiest city in Utah. I write paranormal and monster romance with a heavy dose of cozy heart feelings. I started publishing in 2020 and have released six books to date with my most recent being Deceived by the Gargoyles.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Being an author was a distant idea, but I’ve always been a big reader. I went through the hard part of learning how to write and revise when I was living across the country from everyone I knew and started drafting the stories in my head. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

My inspiration for Deceived by the Gargoyles would definitely be the 90s cartoon. Goliath may have been my first crush.

What are you working on now?

I have a short story that I’m working on for the Into the Woods A Monster Anthology.

Do you have any quirks while working?

Every book has a different writing process, but I generally sit cross-legged with a cat in my lap that must not be disturbed and must then stumble around from numb legs when the cat finally releases me.

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to reach as many readers as I can! This year I’m hoping to delve further into the land of audiobooks.

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

The thing you haven’t done yet is always the hardest. Indie publishing requires a lot of different hats and everything always seems overwhelming until you do it. Just remember that a lot of people have done these things before and most are willing to answer questions about them. You can succeed alone, but having a community will make it easier.

Do you have anything to say to your followers? 

Thank you so much! You have all changed my life and I will never stop being grateful that people want to read what I write.

Author Rowan Thalia #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Rowan Thalia

First interview

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Hello again Helle! Gosh it’s been forever since my first interview! I’m Rowan Thailia – Ro. First, I’m an author, I published my first novel  on February 14, 2019. 

I discovered very early on that I loved writing. Poetry was my first love and form of expression. I’ve written poems since I was sixteen and have quite the collection by now! Some of them you can find in my poetry novella, Deep in the Ro.

I’ve always been an avid reader and writer of short stories. My favorite author of all time is Anne Rice. In fact my pen name stems from one of her characters, Rowan, from The Witching Hour.

It wasn’t until 2018 that I decided to push through and write a full-length novel. I started Binding Rayne (which went through several title changes at first) but struggled with the direction. In the middle of the first draft, I happened upon the reverse-harem book community on facebook. The complicated romances rooted in my author heart and before long my book took on a new direction.  The Keepers of the Talisman trilogy was born!

Thank you for all of the support and love that you’ve shown toward my book babies so far, Helle, I hope to keep surprising you with bigger and better projects!

What has happened work wise since our last interview?

Since our first interview, I have written and published  many more reverse-harem romance novels, most of them paranormal in genre. Never to be one to sit idle, I opened a second pen name – R. Thalia . With this name, I began the journey of writing my first (non-romance) paranormal thriller, Song of Bones which I hope to publish in March.

Covid hit, and I backslid into depression for a while, but I came out fighting. I began a rewrite of my second series, The Soldiers of Blood and Ruin. At first, I thought to work through a quick edit, but realized I wanted to do more with the series – expand it – so I began the long road to reimagining the series. I just finished book one, Renegades Exiled (formerly Rox’s Renegades) and I can’t be happier! I’ve given Rox a deeper backstory and developed the plot and characters more than the first go around, even if you’ve read the first novel – I highly suggest you pick up the twe one. Renegades Exiled drops January 15!

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Which one? Ha! I’m working on several projects right now. The biggest one is Soldiers of Blood and Ruin, so I’ll talk about that one. I’ve always been a fan of vampire novels – cue my Anne Rice obsession. Before writing this series, I read a dystopian novel and it got my mind spinning – what if I combined the two? This was right after finishing my first book, Binding Rayne in 2018. Anyway, I sat down and plotted/wrote the first ten chapters of this series in a weekend. The rest is history! Rox and her team were born. I mixed my love of vampires, dystopian, and zombies all together in one sexy package.

What are you working on now?

After finishing Renegades Exiled, I am working on four projects:
Renegades Mission: Book Two of Soldiers of Blood and Ruin
Juniper’s Trial: The final book of The Academy of Elite – Cowritten with Jarica James
Song of Bones – A thriller standalone under my non-romance pen, R. Thalia
Death Knell – a PNR RH Romance Co-written with Darcy Ray

Do you have any quirks while working?

Hmm. This is a good question. I think my biggest quirk is my need to see photos of everything I’ve imagined. I spend a lot of time searching pinterest and other sites finding the right images to go with what is in my head. Other than that – I’m needy. My poor alpha group can attest. Thankfully I’ve got people all around the world, so someone is always available in our chat- haha!

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to get back on a regular schedule with my writing. In a perfect world, I’ll be publishing a book for each pen name at least bi-monthly. I’d also love to go back and get my Master’s in teaching – but that’s a long way away right now.

What have you learned about publishing since our first interview?

Gosh, I’ve learned so much. When you first interviewed me I had people helping me with the process – a small publishing house. Since then I’ve separated from the publisher and set out on my own. Both Deafening Silence and Last Chance Diner were self-published. The reason for rewriting my two first series is that I’ve gotten the rights back from the publisher and I will be putting them on my own account. The entire process is so intricate and it helps to know people. The most important advice I can give to new indie authors is – make friends with several editors and cover designers. Besides that, gather a small squad of beta/a;pha readers that will stick with you. Most of mine have been with me the entire three years and I couldn’t be more grateful. Shout out to my Shiver Squad!!

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

To my followers – Thank you so much for hanging in with me for the last three years. I came into the writing community rapid-releasing six books in a year. Since then, I’ve slowed down – but you haven’t turned away from me and I appreciate you! I love every comment, message, and recommendation I see out there. Stick with me, I promise I have more in store!!  Hugs, love and dicks – Ro  ❤

Author Addison/Adara Wolf #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Addison/Adara Wolf

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Hi everybody! I’m Addison/Adara Wolf. My dark MF works are under the name Addison Wolf, my dark MM stuff under Adara Wolf. I primarily write, well, dark romance. Protagonists who are unredeemable and relationships that are extremely toxic. I wouldn’t want to date any of my main characters IRL, but they sure are fun to write and read about!

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have been writing for fun since I was around 14, but if I’m honest, I didn’t consider it as a full time profession until I was in the middle of my first real job and absolutely hating it. I wrote Under His Heel (dark m/m) for fun, not really intending to monetize it, but it grew extremely long! And things had gotten very sour at work, so publishing this book allowed me to leave a toxic situation.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Raissa Donovan (my now co-author) and I were chatting about branching out into a new genre. We knew we wanted to write dark, and reverse harem sounded very fun, especially since it allowed us to include some bisexual men in our story. We chatted out ideas, throwing in all the fun kinks we definitely wanted to add, until we got to Breaking Lucia.

What are you working on now?

We just finished Book 2 in the Spoils of Victory series, Taming Lucia, and we’re gearing up to start writing the third one. We have it planned out, but as always things will probably change while we’re writing. On the m/m side, I’m working on a spin-off for Under His Heel, Leashing His Heart, featuring a rich young man out of his depths and a criminal who is finding out just how hard he can push the boundaries.

Do you have any quirks while working?

Not so much quirks, but I can’t work with music playing, most of the time. The lyrics distract me! If I think it’s too quiet, I’ll pop on some instrumental music.
… Oh, and anybody who knows me can tell you, but I spend way too long researching tiny details that will often never make it into my books.

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to be able to make this my full time job. I’m not there yet, but I changed day jobs mid-2021 and my goal for 2022 is to grow my author business. If I can figure out how to juggle my day job with my author job, I want to get back into painting, as well. I did a few paintings for my home office and had so much fun with it.

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

If you’re self-publishing, the most important thing is to have a plan! Plan out what you’re going to write for the next year, and stick to a schedule. Marketing is important too (don’t skimp on covers) but the best thing you can do is be consistent.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you so much to everybody who has supported me these past few years. I appreciate everybody who has read my books. I love reader comments and seeing people’s reactions to my characters really warms my heart. Thank you so, so much. 💖
As a thanks to all our readers, Raissa and I have written a little holiday extra story, titled Giving Lucia.

Teasers –Taming Lucia, releasing on Dec 28

The last dress I’m holding is black, knee-length, with a wrap design. It shows a bit of cleavage, but not as much as the white dress, and it still has thick straps and a covered back. Elegant, but still appropriate for work without being completely sexless.
“This one,” I say, pulling the dress off the hanger. “Raise your arms, Lucia.”
“I can dress myself,” she tells me, reaching out for the dress instead of obeying.
I unzip the back of the dress and shrug. “I’m sure you can. You can wear it by yourself too. I just finished clearing out one of the closets for you, we could hang you up there with the rest of the dresses.”
Angelo smirks.
All the color drains from her face. She quickly raises her arms in the air. “That won’t be necessary,” she says.
I pull the dress over her head and shoulders and nod at her. “Good girl.”
I don’t miss her quite tangible reaction to the words. A tremor runs through her, and her breath catches. I don’t think she even realizes she’s responding so beautifully to the praise.
She lets me pull the dress down over her body, hiding the bright red lingerie, and I zip it up in the back before circling around her to inspect her. It’s a good fit, just like I knew it would be, and it’s perfect for the meeting. She’s quiet, glancing at me uncertainly.
I let my hands roam over her body while I pretend to inspect it. I cup her breasts, trail soft touches down her stomach, and squeeze her ass. She tenses, her lips trembling, but she doesn’t move away from me.
There’s a certain thrill I get, knowing that I’ve molded my partner just to my liking. Lucia isn’t quite there yet, but she looks good in the clothes I picked for her. I have jewelry for her too, and I look forward to brushing her hair.
Then Angelo wolf-whistles. “Looking very, very nice, Princess.”
She startles, obviously having been caught in the moment I was where it was just the two of us. She glances over at him, rolling her eyes. “You’d think that no matter what I was wearing. You’d even find something you liked about the nun clothes.”
I give Angelo a cold glare. “If you can keep your mouth shut, you can stay and masturbate. Otherwise, leave.”
Angelo’s eyebrows rise. “So far, I haven’t seen anything worth jerking off to.”
“And there won’t be anything worth jerking off to,” Lucia says. “Right, Victor?” Like that’s going to make me agree with her.
A quick glance at my alarm clock shows there’s still twenty-five minutes before the meeting. Plenty of time. I brush my thumb over Lucia’s lips. “Mouth or cunt?”

Author Zoe Ashwood #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Zoe Ashwood

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Well, I’ve always been a reader. I also have notebooks and little scrap pieces of paper scribbled with terrible snippets of never-finished stories and angsty poems dating back to the 90s when I was in elementary school. But I didn’t set out to be a writer until I had a book blog for a couple of years – and then I heard about NaNoWriMo from another blogger and decided to give it a try. That was in 2015 – but it took me until 2019 to publish my first novel. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Ooh, I’m so glad you asked. The Nora Moss series is inspired by my love of action-adventure movies and ancient civilizations! It’s a love letter to Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, and Atlantis, as well as a steamy love story about a woman who fights for the people she loves. Cursed in Love, the first book in the series, takes place in Egypt – because the Ancient Egyptian civilization is my absolute favorite ancient culture. I had so much fun writing it!

What are you working on now?

I’m writing Captured in Love, which is Book 2 of the Nora Moss series. Nora and her guys are heading to Iceland next! 

Do you have any quirks while working?

I plot my stories obsessively because I hate editing! I also drink a lot of barley coffee with almond milk – I’ve trained my brain to have a sort of a Pavlovian response to it! So now barley coffee means work. It’s a strange but effective little ritual.

What are your hopes for the future?

Well, I’m about to become a full-time author, so my goal is to grow my author career to the point where it’s the primary source of income for our family! I’d love for that to become our reality. I want to write beautiful stories that my readers will enjoy.

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

I would say: be kind. Don’t engage in drama (there’s always drama in the author world) and be a source of kindness and motivation instead. And work on your mindset too! I just started with that – and it’s so important! Other than that, just finish your book and/or series. If you don’t finish the first draft (which will invariably be crappy), you can’t edit it and polish it and make it into a finished product. You can do it! Take that story you love and make it shiny.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Oh yes! Thank you for being here! Another blogger recently asked me about my greatest writing success – and I said it was having actual readers! I fangirl over my favorite authors a lot, so having someone tell me that they loved my books is the best feeling. It’s so awesome to know that my stories are read by real humans. 🙂

Darkness to Light

Author Jeanette Lynn #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Jeanette Lynn

Tell us a bit about yourself

I live with my Incredible Hunk of a Neanderthal with our fur babies and Small Human Child. I am at the beck and call of a Hobbit doggo and eccentric terrier mix that acts more like a cat and basically owns my buns. I enjoy artsy fartsy anything, corny b horror movies, the cornier the better, good tunes, and writing quirky but relatable characters in out of this world stories.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No. And I can’t say I’d considered it as a child or early adulthood. It wasn’t even on my radar. I’ve always loved to read, and sort of made up my own stories in my head, or changed them if I was disappointed in something in one, but my first love has always been art. I supposed I should have figured I’d lean towards writing. I didn’t see it myself, but talking with my sisters, a few of them have said they could totally see it. I was a Barbie girl, lol, and I lived in my own little Barbie world. Barbie dated G.I. Joes and New Kids On the Block dolls(Sorry, Ken!) and lived in her ginormous plastic beach house with a giant pink and orange plastic dinosaur instead of a dog, with a few Ewoks for roommates. I made up wild stories for the whole gang and spent hours setting the stage and playing it all out. If one of my sisters happened upon me working all this out, I’d prattle on about it for as long as they were willing to stand there while I chattered. I actually took the plunge in part because of something one of my siblings said while we were talking. I’d said something like, “Maybe I should try it,” jokingly, during a convo, about writing a book, (we’d been talking books, recent reads, likes, dislikes) and they made a comment, something like, “You could do it. You should try it. I’d read it.” I mean, hey, they’d offered, right? Eventually I did, they read it, they said they loved it, then asked when I’d be writing the next book, and that’s kinda how Stellar Proportions came about.

So I’ll just slip in a thank you for my big seesters here, my Valkyrie, for always being my biggest supporters and encouraging their not-so-pixie-sized-anymore baby sister to do the things.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I work on several series/books at once, but my most current series releases are set in Mordenne, Tales of Mordenne series and Brides of Mordenne. The series intertwine. Tales is Monster Romance with heart and a pinch of horror, PNR Fantasy, and Brides of Mordenne is monster matchmaking mayhem, Cyclops, Werewolves, Trolls, Men of the Marsh, finding their Happily Ever Afters. I was inspired to write them because of my love of monsters. Monster everything, I love it. Frankenstein, the Creature From the Black Lagoon, Swamp Thing, Big Foot, Yetis, folktales, mythology, I love it all. Those poor fellas never get the girl, though, right? And it was like, but what if they did? And what if their lady loves were curvy gals?

What are you working on now?

I am currently working on The Princess & The Ogre, the third book in Tales of Mordenne. Morgan and Theseus are finally going to hash this whole reluctant dragon princess thing out once and for all.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I like to listen to music more often than not. It’s not uncommon for me to make a playlist of songs that stick with me while I’m writing a book.

What are your hopes for the future?

My hopes for the future would be to keep doing this words makin’ thing. I love writing, pulling the story together, sorting it all out in my head to get it down as I see it, watching it slowly turn into a book. It’s fun. I’d like to be able to make enough as an author to be considered a livable income.

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

Write.
Uhm, I’m horrible with advice. It’s like my brain stalls and smoke starts to slowly eep from my ears. Is that burnt toast? Why do I smell burnt toast?
From personal experience, I’d say keep writing, working for it, improving. There’s always room for improvement. Aim to write a series. Newsletters are important. See what’s out there, what works for you and what doesn’t, what you’d like to see done differently? I wanted more quirky reads with relatable, if oddball, characters, with romance and heart, and that’s what I set out to write starting all of this.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Hello, podly peeps! Thank you for being freaking awesome and supportive, all around fantastic human beings. You rock. You make my weird little heart happy. Y’all make all of this possible and I’ll forever be grateful for that.

Author Aria Winter #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Aria Winter

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hello! I live near Fort Worth, TX with my husband, 2 cats and 1 dog. In addition to reading and writing, I love biking, travel, and sitting on the deck drinking coffee or tea when it rains.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I love writing, but the idea of becoming an author always seemed like such a faraway dream. My husband was the one who encouraged me to publish. At first, I was full of so much self-doubt, it seemed impossible. But he and one of my sisters kept encouraging me until I caved and finally decided to go for it.

My husband learned how to do all the “behind the scenes” stuff so that I can focus on writing. He’s been so supportive, it’s amazing. If it weren’t for him, I’d probably still be writing fanfiction for myself.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The one I’m working on now is a cowrite with Jessica Grayson. It’s a fairy tale retelling series. With the crazy state of the world today, I’ve found myself drawn to fairy tales as an escape. Especially Disney movie fairy tales. So, we decided to do a series of retellings based on our favorites.

I love fairy tales, but I also love steam in my books. So, we decided to combine the two. Our fairy tales are full of love, have plenty of steam and smexy times as well as plenty of interesting twists to keep the readers guessing. We loosely follows the fairy tales, but we also wanted to make sure they could stand on their own instead of just being a rehashing of what’s already out there.

Our first one is already out on Amazon KU. It’s a Dragon Shifter Beauty and the Beast Retelling called “Taken by the Dragon.” I cannot tell you how much I fell in love with those characters while writing their story. They have a cameo in the 2nd book in the series “Captivated by the Fae: A Cinderella Retelling” that I think readers will really enjoy. 😊

What are you working on now?

I’m working on “Bound to the Elf Prince: A Snow White Retelling” with Jessica Grayson. I love Elvish Romance and I’m really enjoying fleshing out this world.

Each of the fairy tales are all in a shared world and loosely connected to each other. Characters from each story make cameos in the other books. I really love how it’s all tying together.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I have a different song that I choose as a theme song for each book. I write about 20k words/day. If I get stuck on one project, I switch to another so I can get my word count in. So, the theme song helps get me back in the head of the characters and also helps me really immerse myself in that particular world before I dive back in and start writing in it.

What are your hopes for the future?

I have a million stories in my head and I want to get them all out into the world as quickly as possible. I love writing and immersing myself in other worlds. I wake up each morning excited to begin and I can’t wait to share all these stories that I have in my head with my readers.

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

I know it’s hard, but do your best to silence the voice in your head trying to convince you that you cannot do this.

Jessica Grayson shared a quote with me that helped her with her writing process. It really inspired me as well. “I’m writing a rough draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.”   

That is such a powerful quote. It’s also the reason I’m able to write as quickly as I can. It really helps silence my inner critic when I’m writing a rough draft so that I can produce it that much faster.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement. It means so much to me when someone messages me about how much they loved a particular story and/or the characters. These books are really close to my heart and I love knowing that people enjoy them as much as I love writing them. 😊
