Author Michelle Hercules #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a USA Today bestselling author writing under two pen names. M. H. Soars for contemporary romance and Michelle Hercules for PNR, UF, Fantasy and SciFi romance. I was once a former avid reader/reviewer who decided to write a book about alien teens after a few glasses of mimosas. 🙂

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No. I’ve always liked to read since I was a kid, but growing up, I never believed that I could actually write a book. The limitations we give ourselves are scary. The indie movement was definitely a game changer for me.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Anime and manga for sure. I wanted to write an academy series featuring supernaturals, but divert a little from the usual vamp/werewolf/witch trifecta.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on two series. Gifted Academy which is a Paranormal High School Bully RH Romance, and Oz in Space which is a futuristic fantasy retelling of the Wizard of Oz. It’s also RH.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I usually hide the word count of my word document. It helps me write faster.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I want to see my books adapted to other formats (movie, TV, graphic novels).

°

°

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

Soak up as much information as they can about the craft and marketing, and write every day. But also be very cautious about service providers, especially the ones that claim easy fortune and quick results.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

My newest release is Wicked Gods, the first book in the Gifted Academy series. It’s coming on Aug. 8th.

Blurb:

Nowhere is safe when the gods are wicked.

Since the beginning of times, there has always been two sides: Norms and Idols.

But never have the scales been so unbalanced as they are today.

I’m a Norm, which means, I grew up in fear of the Idols and their godly powers.

And now, I’m going to be surrounded by them, day and night. I’ve been offered a place at the prestigious Gifted Academy, an opportunity very few Norms get.

To survive, I must become invisible. But my hope to get through the academy unscathed goes down the drain when the most powerful boys in school set their eyes on me.

They hate me simply because I’m a Norm. If they knew who I truly am, they’d tear me apart limb by limb. But I’m done cowering away from Idols. It’s time for the Norms to fight back, and it all starts with me.

💀 The Dark Side 💀

by Kristy Cunning

I’m not so different from most people.

Like everyone else, I have life goals.

Goal #1: Become a real girl instead of this invisible ghost thing I currently am.

Goal #2: Convince the four men I’ve been haunting for the past five years to pick me to be their new toy after goal one is complete.

Goal #3: Figure out who/what I am and why I can’t remember anything past the five years I’ve been haunting this quad.

Goal #4: Eat popcorn.

See? Perfectly normal. Sort of.

Gotta start small, after all.

It’s not like anyone else is perfect either.

**Sexual situations

**Reverse Harem

**Dark humor galore

🐺 Wolves of Crimson Hollow 🐺

by M.H. Soars & Michelle Hercules

What if Red Riding Hood didn’t fall in love with one Big Bad Wolf but three?

I’ve been a city girl my entire life. But when my grandmother got sick, I didn’t think twice before packing my bags and moving to Crimson Hollow, a small town in West Virginia. Two years later, I’m still here and finally adjusting to the quiet life.

Only there’s nothing ordinary about this town.

A walk in the woods proved almost deadly and left me changed forever. I was attacked by a rogue wolf, and now, I belong to the Crimson Hollow pack. I’m a shifter.

To make matters worse, my arrival in the pack created a rift among the wolves, making it impossible to tell friend from foe, including the three alpha’s sons who have taken a keen interest in me. If dealing with all that wasn’t enough, wolves are disappearing. We must discover who is behind it, or there won’t be a pack left to fight over.

🏹 Chronicles of Arcana 🏹

by Debbie Cassidy

If Buffy and Angel could have banged without him going all evil, then we would have had Wilomena Bastion.

Dragons suck, like literally suck the life out of you if you let them. Trick is not to look them directly in the eyes, like ever. So, the day Wila finds herself staring into the most dangerous Draconi’s pretty, emerald peepers, she knows she’s royally fucked.

No one said saving a bunch of kids from being served up as treats to the dragon liege was going to be easy. Options are limited—immediate execution or servitude, and Wila prefers to have her head remain firmly on her shoulders.

Now, the self-professed dark avenger must work to bring down a resistance of demons hell-bent on making life difficult for the dragon liege. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, her new position comes with a partner, the dragon liege’s favoured demon enforcer; a creature of fire, fury and washboard abs who—let’s face it—is just gonna cramp her style.

With the help of a ghostly receptionist, a talking dog and the thing that lives in the basement, Wila will be forced to take on a most dangerous task. Add a dragon prince, a sexy troll blood and a billionaire mage into the mix, and things are about to get even more complicated. It looks like some serious brooding is on the menu, because for the first time in forever, Wila isn’t sure she’s up to the job.

A city filled with monsters needs a woman who can kick ass, and Wilomena Bastion is just the gal for the job.

A kick-ass Urban Fantasy with a slow burn Whychoose Romance.
