Author Ashley Amy #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Ashley Amy

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I am a small town Idahoan who grew up on a potato farm. I spent almost a decade being a military wife with my now ex-husband. I just had my fourth son with my current partner that my new road of life led me to. I’ve been an author since April 2019 and never looked back.

Book 1 is free.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I was an odd soul growing up. The girl who was friends with everyone but scribbled nonsense in her journal once in private. Stories began to build clear back then in my youth, so now I see I had always wanted it. I’m just embracing it now.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I have an obsession with Greek mythology—which most of my PNR books tie into in some way.

What are you working on now?

Currently, I’m working on two romcoms for December 2021.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

When I get hit with a block, I look around the room. The first thing I spot, I write into a sex scene. After I’ve written such an unorthodox piece, my mind functions better.

What are your hopes for the future?

One day, I hope to make a bestseller list with an individual piece.

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

Editing is important. Don’t skip that step in your haste, and your eyes alone are not enough.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I’m just grateful for the ones who have stayed with me. When covid happened, I stepped back for a bit and took off most of 2020. Coming back into it, they waited. My tribe will always be them for their support. It’s what keeps me going now.

Author Grace Nicholas #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Grace Nicholas

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Well, my name is Grace Nicholas. I grew up in southern Arkansas in a tiny town no one has ever heard of. 😂 I’ve lived in central Arkansas for the majority of my life. I’m a wife, mother of 2 crazy teenagers and one spoiled rotten pug, Buddy. I’ve been an avid 6-10 book a week reader since I was about 14 years old. 

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always wanted to be an author, but never knew where to start. About 3, almost 4 years ago I found the Facebook reader/author community and it opened up my whole world! 😲 After bumming around, joining groups and participating in those groups, I finally got on my first ARC team. From there I moved up to beta, then eventually alpha reader for a few authors. Brandi Bell, whom you all may know as Rose Alexander, finally wore me down, after 2 years, and convinced me to write a book with her. We wrote The Storm Queen together and it was one of the best experiences of my life. She taught me so much and it was a ton of fun because we were already such good friends!

What are you working on now?

Currently I’m working on another co-write with the lovely EJ Everette called The Reapings Serial. It’s a mini-series that will have episodes releasing every month, then every so often those episodes will be put in one volume and released as a full length novel with deleted scenes and secret POVs!

I’m also working on my first solo novel which is a sweet, second chance romance novel. Honestly, the cover was the inspiration for this story. As soon as I saw it, the characters started screaming in my head and the story has been flowing almost faster than I can type! 😂 I’m hoping to release it sometime around March.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t think I really have any quirks while writing, other than needing it to be quiet. I do the majority of my writing when my husband is working and the kids are otherwise occupied. Though sometimes, I’ll write at night while my husband plays whatever game he has at that time on his PS5. As long as there isn’t much talking in the game, I can deal with it as background noise. If there is a lot of talking, then I pop in my AirPods and turn on my noise app. My go-to noise is a box fan, but sometimes I’ll switch it up to rain or a thunderstorm, depending on my mood or the scene. 

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to keep writing books until I can no longer type! My husband has the lofty goal of being a house-husband within 5 years 🙄, but I’ve told him that’s unlikely considering I’m a slow writer and don’t publish full novels that often. I’ve only published one so far, plus one episode of the mini-series and I’ve got a short story being released December 1st in the Once Upon a Twisted Christmas anthology. 

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

Being a new author myself, I don’t really have much advice for other new authors other than to write what you know. Don’t try to write what you think everyone wants, or what everyone will read. It will seem forced to you, and it will read that way to readers. I learned that lesson the hard way. 

To my followers, I just have to say to hang in there! I promise I’m writing every day, I’m just not as fast as others. I still have a full time career and a family to take care of, so I write when I can. I love you all to pieces and I can’t express enough how much I appreciate your faith in me and your willingness to be patient with me. Hopefully I’ll be able to find more time to write and start publishing books more often! 💜💜💜

Author L.K. Beal #interview

Please give a warm welcome to Author L.K. Beal

Tell us a bit about yourself…

My name is Lisa & I write under two pen names. I live in the UK with my son & husband and our many pets. I love all things paranormal, coffee and the ocean. I’m pretty boring really, I tend to live through my novels!

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I wanted to become a writer when I was a kid but never thought I’d be able to. I loved to read, but writing? It seemed out of my reach.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My newest release, Lark awakening, was inspired by the need to tell a wolf shifter story that was relatable. Something that made readers think “yeah, I would react that way, too.” I wanted it to be funny, too & Lark has a quirky sense of humour, like me.

What are you working on now?

Right now I’m working on Lark ascending, the sequel to Lark awakening. It’s in the early stages. I wasn’t planning on a second book but my readers asked – demanded – and I thought, why not?

Do you have any quirks while working?

Is writing under pressure a quirk?
As a mum to a very clingy but amazing little boy, a wife (he’s not so clingy but just has hard work), a caregiver to my mum & dad as well as a writer is pretty hectic. But I thrive under pressure so it’s all good.

What are your hopes for the future?

My hopes for the future as an author include people reading and enjoying my books. I have no other goals. Even if only one person loves what I write, I’ll be a happy camper.

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

My advice for new authors is be clear about the direction you want to go in. Point yourself towards it – shoot. Don’t let ANYONE hold you back. If no one reads what you’ve written – at least you can say you gave it 100%.
Also, never EVER compare yourself to another writer. That right there is a dream killer.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I’d love to say – Thank you for taking a chance on me. I might be new to the new adult world but I promise you, I will work my butt off to make you love me.

Author Regina Puckett #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author and poet Regina Puckett

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I’ve never thought my life was interesting enough to talk about. I remember taking a Speech class in college and listening in awe as some of my fellow students stood up and discussed their lives. The minute I had to stand up to talk about mine, I couldn’t think of a single thing anyone would ever want to know about me.
I married right out of high school. The most exciting thing in my life at that time were my two beautiful daughters. They gave my life meaning, but it never occurred to me that anyone else would find my day-to-day life interesting enough to sit through a five minute speech. Here I am many, many years later, and I still don’t think anyone would want to listen to a five-minute speech about my life.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I knew I wanted to become a writer in the seventh grade. That was the same time I became interested in reading. I wanted to write something other people would fall in love with just like I had fallen in love with so many authors’ stories.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m currently writing a Christmas romance. Christmas has always been my favorite day of year, so I wanted to center a love story around two people meeting and falling in love during that season.

Do you have any quirks while working?

My entire life is a quirk. Everything I do is by the seat of my pants, so I’m always just as surprised as the next guy that I ever finished an entire novel.

What are your hopes for the future?

I want to win the lottery but if not, I have several books in the beginning stages I would to finish writing.

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

I’ve learned the hard way how easy it is to be taken advantage of in the publishing business. There are plenty of people who are prepared rip you off. My best advice is to you is to research, research, research.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I’m always so pleased to hear someone has read one of my books. I know everyone’s time is so precious, so I’m honored when anyone spends their valuable time reading my books. Thank you so much.

Author Lexi C Foss #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Lexi C Foss

Tell us a bit about yourself… 

Hi! My name is Lexi. I’m a quirky author who loves exploring the twists and turns of dark paranormal worlds, especially those haunted by vampires and shifters.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

I’ve always been a dreamer. I didn’t fully understand what that meant career-wise until after college when I started writing one day. It started as a way to pass the time and quickly grew into an obsession as the voices started unloading inside my mind. I sometimes can’t keep up with how fast they tell me a story, it’s like watching a movie and transcribing it all for others to review.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

My inspiration typically comes from traveling. I go to random places and the voices just start talking, then I become the conduit for their tales. It’s a unique experience, one I value and love, even if it makes me seem a little crazy at times 😉 

What are you working on now? 

I’m currently writing Wicked Bonds, which is book seven of my Immortal Curse series. It’s an intense ride—one I’m enjoying because Balthazar (a favorite voice) is in the driver’s seat. 

Do you have any quirks while working? 

I need mood music and an otherwise quiet space to work. I also find I write best when I first wake up, or when I’m tired and ready to sleep. I think it’s that “daydream” sensation that I crave while drafting a story; it helps me channel the voices better and fall into the daze of stream-writing.

What are your hopes for the future? 

I would love to explore more genres within romance, like new adult and dark suspense romance. Those are two guilty pleasure reading areas for me, but my brain always gravitates toward the paranormal world building. I’m working on training my mind to stay in the “real world” for a bit 😉 

First book is free.

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

Keep. Writing. Authors are always learning, and we learn by writing and reading. Sometimes we get stuck on plots or specific scenes, so my biggest advice is just to push through and keep going. The story will come to you, even if you have to switch books for a little while. And don’t give up! This industry is constantly evolving and there is room in it for all of us. Lastly, have fun. Don’t lose that spark and love for what we do ♡

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for reading my books! This whole career is a dream come true for me. I never expected my words to reach so many people. My goal when I started was to have one person I didn’t know read my book. And now I have readers all over the world. I love and adore you all. Thank you for helping me follow my dreams ❤

Author Eileen Troemel #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Eileen Troemel

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Eileen Troemel – I’m an author… I’d rather talk about my characters than myself.  I write in a variety of genres.  I like the different challenges of different formats.  I’ve got scifi romance, fantasy romance, contemporary romance, paranormal romance… I like romance.  Give me the magic of falling in love and I’m happy.  I also produce crochet patterns, a self help book and poetry. I grew up on a farm which makes me independent and determined.  I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for forty years.  We have three wonderful adult daughters.  

I write under two more names as well. 

RJ Stone – writes children’s books.  When I started writing, I wanted to start with children’s books.  So many ideas for them but my stumbling block – I’m a horrible artist.  But I returned to this and have two items out and will have more soon. 

Ava M Taylor – write erotica.  I’ve written in many of the sub-genres from contemporary to scifi and fantasy.  I like the sexy stories and find it challenging to write.  In fact, I started writing erotica because I needed a break from a current work in progress.  My head needed to think on a plot point in one of my other stories and so I wrote a rather explicit sex scene.  From there it grew into a story. 

Have you always wanted to become an author?

In third grade our teacher assigned us to write a short story.  I wrote something silly but it was the first time I realized you could make up stories.  From there, I knew I wanted writing to be part of what I did.  I’ve done a lot of business writing in my life but I took up writing again in my late thirties and found myself again.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Current – well okay so I write in multiple books at a time so it’s hard for me to limit this to one.

 

Celtan Dilemma – out next year – this all started with a conversation about some current event (no idea which one) and the person was stuck between a rock and a hard place.  My female main character was given an order (in the military) and if she carried it out, she would become a war criminal.  If she didn’t carry it out, she was a traitor.  So she had to choose.  This is a science fiction space war story. 

The Moon Crossing – due out in November – is a co-write with Jan Selbourne.  She’s a lovely author from Australia.  I read her book Perilous Love.  She kept me on the edge of my seat.  We talked and I thoroughly enjoy talking to her. She writes historical fiction and she said she had no idea how to write in scifi.  So we landed on an alternate history of the moon landing.  We talked through a good portion of the plot – which is pretty amazing because we are both people who write off the cuff.  Once we got started it took off and the ideas and collaboration was wonder.  The premise is during the moon landing the astronauts found something that advanced our society technologically.  But now in 2030, scientists were disappearing.  Our two main characters are looking for their missing family members and end up in a pile of intrigue and mystery as they track down their family.  

On the Line – due out in January – is a contemporary romance in the K Bromberg world of Everyday Heroes.  Allison is a 911 operator and Chandler is a computer programmer.  His parents called 911 and were so grateful for the help, they wanted to meet the operator who helped them.  Chandler works with the cybercrimes division so he got an intro to Allison.  From the moment he met her, he wanted to spend more time with her.  Allison is recovering from a bad marriage.  She wants to do her job and have a quiet life.  She’s older than him and has two adult daughters.  She was injured in a car accident, leaving her with some mobility issues.  He doesn’t care about that.

Ava M Taylor just published Captain’s Companion.  This is book two in the Sexy Sinivite series.  Prospecting is the first book.  Cade is tired of sex bots.  He’s off prospecting in space and he wants a real woman to go with him to all the remote locations while he works.  Sheridan needs money to help her family so she hires out essentially as a sex toy.  Cade is part Sinivite and well they have a way with their women.  In Captain’s Companion, Ulrik is a captain of a ship and has met his mate – sort of.  He’s required to have a companion.  He doesn’t really want one but it’s required.  So when he looks through those available, he find Gwynn.  He knows.  When he finally meets her, he knows as well. He’s mostly Sinivite so his pheromones go into hyperdrive with his mate.  These are two stand alone books but share a theme and world. 

RJ Stone wrote a short story for the anthology To the Moon and Back.  Princess on the Run is a short story geared toward 8 to 10 year olds.  She’s run away to visit her dragon friend Nuria.  But Nuria reminds her of what happens when a princess visits a dragon… trouble. 

What are you working on now?

I’m working on a scifi romance which is a little darker than I normally go.  The working title is Escape the Gray.  These men were dumped on a planet as prisoners of war and struggle to survive.  Then a ship of their enemy crashes and they discover a woman.  It’s an RH scifi romance.   

I’ve also got about four other projects I’m working on.  I move back and forth among the projects until one of them takes off.  Then I just write.

Under Ava M Taylor I’m working on a sea monster story.  I bought a cover that inspired me and I’ve been building the story.  The title will be Sacrificed to the Sea Monster.  There’s a bit of adventure, humor, and a lot of sexy time. 

Under RJ Stone, I’m working on Dragon of Frendur 2 – lots of ideas for this one but nothing solid for a plot. 

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t know about quirks.  I am usually in my recliner with only one light on and classical music playing.  If the words are flowing, I can write as much as 10 to 15,000 words. Most often I write anywhere from 500 to 5000 words.  Even though I work in Word on my computer, I use my phone to research topics that come up while I’m writing. 

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope my stories will bring readers enjoyment and escape from their world.  If they find a lesson in there – great.  I hope I continue to produce stories which people find engaging, sexy, and fun.  

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

Listen to those who are better at writing than you are but always make your own choices and decisions about your writing.  Write often.  The more you write, the better you’ll get.  But don’t just drop words on a page.  When you edit, pay attention.  What words are you overusing?  What phrases are you repeating? Analyze your work so you become a better author. Know you’re not done once it’s published. From there you have to promote and market your work.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you.  Thank you for picking up my books and reading them. Thank you for connecting with me.  You’re key to my story telling process. 

Author Eva Ashwood #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Eva Ashwood

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Eva Ashwood has been a reader her whole life and a writer for several years. She loves telling stories of alpha males and the fierce women who bring them to their knees.

She’s a sucker for reverse harem, bully romance, enemies to lovers, heroes who redeem themselves, and all the drama and passion of new adult love.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, but I’ve always been a huuuge reader! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a voracious reader, and the moment I discovered romance novels, it was all over, lol. I got hooked and never looked back. The first book I ever wrote was because I was dying to read a certain trope in a book and I couldn’t find it, so I decided I would write it myself. And the rest is history!

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series is called Dirty Broken Savages, and the inspiration for that one sort of hit me upside the head, lol. The blurb for the first book just popped into my head one day, and I had to scramble to find a pen to write it down as fast as I could. Then I knew I had to write the book, since the characters were screaming at me to tell their story.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on Reign of Wrath, the third book in the Dirty Broken Savages series. There will be four books total in the series, so up next will be the final book. And then I’ll be starting a brand new series! I don’t want to say too much about that one yet, but it will be a dark contemporary romance.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I often speak the dialogue out loud as I type, to make sure it sounds real and flows right, and I also make faces as I write – happy or sad or whatever the characters are feeling. So basically, I look like a crazy person, lol! My husband has learned to just ignore me while I’m in the middle of a writing session.

What are your hopes for the future?

To keep writing for as long as I can. It’s all I can imagine myself doing now, and I have sooo many more stories in my head that I want to tell. I hope to write another paranormal series at some point, but right now, my muse is pulling me strongly in the direction of contemporary romance. So that’s where I’ll be for a while!

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

Take the leap! It’s soooo scary at first, but if I can do it, you can too! Write the story that’s been in your heart and in your head, the one you’ve always wanted to read that hasn’t been written yet.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you!!! I get insanely nervous with every book I release, and it’s honestly the messages and comments and reviews from readers that keep me going. Thank you for taking a chance on my work, and for loving the damaged, broken characters my mind comes up with!
