Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a pretty average person, really. I have my eccentricities of course, lol. But some basics are that I live in a very small town in the country. I spend too much time on the computer and I love video games when I have time to play them.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve written stories since I could write, about 4 or so and it’s always been my dream to publish. So a lifetime.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series was started because of a cheapy movie I saw on Netflix about Sin Eaters. That started the wheels moving.

°

What are you working on now?

Since of Sora series, about a Sin Eater who discovers she doesn’t have to save the world and suffer the pain on its sins. So I guess her making a big life change for her own happiness.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I have lots of quirks, lol. I have a small obsession with notebooks and I still hand write a lot of my notes and stuff. Putting pen to paper lets me think clearer.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Honestly, I just want to be a better author. I’m working on improving my style. My goal is to one day write that book that people remember.

°

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

For new authors, the biggest thing is actually writing the book. There’s a bazillion self-help books on what to do that focus on outlines, character bibles etc. While the most important thing of it is to finish the manuscript. That’s my best advice. THEN worry about editing, covers, etc.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I love my readers. Honestly, I think they’re some of the most intelligent, witty people I’ve met. I’m honored that they read my books and hope one day I can show them how much.

Author Alice Wild #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi! My name is Alice Wilde, and I’m a mother of a cat (or a furry dragon as she likes to sit on my shoulders). I started actually writing and finishing books a little over a year ago and have fallen in love with it, my only wish is that I was able to write more, better, and faster.

I used to work in the gaming industry in Asia as both a copyeditor and copywriter, but then switched to graphic design later as I thought that was my ultimate passion… don’t get me wrong, I still love it, but I think I just love anything creative where I can actually have some kind of control over the outcome. I say some because once I’m in a writing flow, my characters take over and I pretty much never know what’s going to happen next!

There’s never a wrong time for ice cream or hot chocolate.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes and no. I loved writing when I was a kid, until someone told me I should be a writer…and then I didn’t want to write anymore (it was a weird phase in my life). So, when I finally started writing again, it came as a huge surprise to me! I haven’t looked back since.

°

°
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Honestly, I had a bit of a hovering idea that wasn’t really clicking until I watched Lucifer (season 4) and Good Omens. There was something in those shows that made my story concept finally make sense to me, and that was that.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I have so many projects! I’m currently working on finishing the Hellfire Academy series, but I’ve already started planning and maybe writing here and there in several new series and standalones to be released later this year. I’m so excited about them, I can’t wait to announce them officially.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Where do I even begin? Yes, I have to be in a flow to write. Sometimes this means keeping a very strict schedule of the exact same breakfast at the exact same time with the exact same song on loop for a week. Sometimes it means scrunching up on my couch in a terrible position for my back. Recently, it’s been a mug of hot chocolate with whipped cream, a video of someone chatting about sewing in the background, and a mini table on top of my desk to create a makeshift standing desk.

Authoring is weird.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I would love to write full-time! I can’t quite afford to do that yet, but it’s all part of the process, and I believe hard work eventually pays off. Plus, I love my readers! They’ve been so encouraging as a whole. I actually have a lot of ideas that span across genres so ultimate I’d just like to get all my stories out to the world and hopefully bring some happiness to others.

°

°

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

Don’t give up. You’ll get better, faster, and more creative. Don’t let negative comments or reviews get you down, you’re only in competition with yourself. Just strive to make ever book better than the last, and enjoy the process! Now, go write.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I love you all! Seriously, some days it’s just knowing that people are out there enjoy my stories that keeps me going. Authors are human, too, and writing can be a lonely, long road, but it’s so worth it when you get that random review, comment, or message that your stories meant something to someone. The most we can hope to do is change the world one story at a time. Was that too cheesy?

Author Brandy Slaven #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey there, I’m a book and movie nerd from small town Tennessee. I can be found on the daily attached to a computer of some sort talking to my imaginary friends, but I also like visiting new places with the hubs, two kiddos, and my fur baby.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I never had the confidence to think I could ever write a book that someone would read and actually like. I’ve always loved both reading and writing, though, so I guess I was hopeful.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My next book set to publish is a zombie RH co-write with Mary Martel and it all came about because we both wanted a main character full of sass who knew how to kickass.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on Zombie Queen as well as a sequel to another co-authored series and the start of an entire brand new saga coming 2020.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Music. I have to have music because I get easily distracted if there’s a lot going on around me.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

The biggest thing on my hopes for the future list is to finish everything I have planned from now until the end of 2021. #Goals and all that jazz.

°

°

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

1) Don’t ever give up. If you have the itch to write, then do it! No matter what anyone says. No matter how bad the first reviews are. Keep at it because we all have new things we can learn.

2) Don’t be afraid to ask for advice. Authors are people too and have worn those beginner shoes. Besides, most of us don’t bite…hard.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I love my readers. Without you guys, I couldn’t do what I love and that makes me eternally grateful for every last one of you!

Shunned: a dark bully romance (Kings of Miskatonic Prep Book 1) by Steffanie Holmes

°

°

I should have kept my mouth shut.
I should have let them win.
Now the kings of the school are out for my blood,
… and they’re not the only ones.

The fire took everything.
My parents. My best friend. My life.

Now I have a second chance.
I only have to endure one year at this prestigious academy for rich snobs.
One year of being the charity case no one wanted.
One year of taunts and insults and bullying. Then I’m free.

But I didn’t count on Trey, Ayaz, and Quinn.
Arrogant, privileged, dangerous.
Drop-dead gorgeous.
They want me gone.
They want me to suffer.
They’re determined to make my nightmares real.

Tough luck, bully boys – I won’t hide away.
I’m not afraid.
But maybe… I should be.

HP Lovecraft meets Cruel Intentions in book 1 of this dark paranormal reverse harem bully romance. Warning: Not for the faint of heart – this story of three broken bad boys and the girl who stood her ground contains dark themes, crazed cultists, books bound in human skin, high-school drama, swoon-worthy sex, and potential triggers.

A Year of Blogging 2019

This year has certainly been one big surprise that kept going. 2018 was the year I fell madly in love with the reverse harem genre. 2019 was the year I decided to start interviewing some of those amazing RH authors. Well that snowballed quickly. I have interviewed over 231 authors, cover designer, models, bloggers, formatters and so on. I’ve also started two groups Soe Delights which is all about RH and menage, and Soe Book Bliss which is every genre. I started the same on Instagram.

I met another blogger, Ira Myriam. We started talking and suddenly we were working together. She is an amazing, generous soul that I consider myself very lucky to know, love you babe! Now Josie Cross PA have joined our madness and I couldn’t be happier *whispers: she’s organized* love you sweetie!

In 2020 I hope to find new and amazing people to interview. There will of course be cover reveals, pre-orders, reviews, giveaways, book parties and much more.

I love chocolate, books and reading. Rory Miles is my reverse harem pen name. I’m left- handed and enjoy tacos, lasagna, and Thai food.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always loved writing but hadn’t really considered becoming an author until I saw all of these amazing indie authors working hard and publishing their stories.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The Wanted was inspired by Snow White, but my current WIP is inspired by demons and succubi.

°

°

What are you working on now?

It’s a underworld political reverse harem following a sassy succubus named Shera as she navigates the rough waters of the demon hierarchy.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I like to sit on my couch and listen to Billie Eilish 😂 she inspires me.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To publish books I enjoy writing and that people will enjoy reading!

°

°

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

Seeing as I’m still new (first book published April 2019), I don’t have much. But I will say, you write for yourself. You probably won’t gain a huge fan base until you have a few books but if you have the passion, time, and funds don’t give up.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you 🖤🖤

Debut Author Kaitlyn Michaud #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Kaitlyn and I’m a 23 year old newbie author. I’m absolutely obsessed with mermaids and RH. It started off as just a mermaid obsession but then I read Winter Rose’s book The Last Vesseland I was instantly hooked. I began branching out looking for more RH books and I found Avery Thorn’s book Into The Sea’s Embrace. I loved it. I’m actually polyamorous so seeing people like me represented in books felt so amazing.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always loved writing and would make up little stories before I fell asleep each night. I began writing professionally at eight years old though when I won an Honorable Mention Award for some poetry I had written. After that, I couldn’t get enough of writing. It became my escape from some pretty horrific crap I’ve gone through.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m obsessed with mermaids and magick so it was only natural I write about them. My biggest inspirations though are definitely Avery and Winter. They’re such kick ass authors and I really hope to be like them one day. I look up to Avery Song as well, and I hope to be lucky enough to have a fraction of her success.

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on my first book baby! It’s hopefully going to be released in March of 2020 so mark your calander and get prepared for one hell of a ride 🙂

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I stick my tongue out the side of my mouth when I’m really focused on something, such as writing. I’ve tried to stop so many times but it just happens. Eventually I just gave up and went with the flow 😂

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

My advice would be this: Don’t be scared. I know how frightening it can be sharing something as near and dear to your heart as a story you’ve written is, believe me. I second guessed myself a million times over and almost decided not to publish. You can’t let your insecurities tell your story for you, so just take deep breaths and know that there are 7 billion people in the world. It’s scientifically proven at least one of those people will love your book and want to know more! Talk to the people who support you, chances are they will give you advice and help make your dreams become a reality.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I’m just so thankful for all the positive feedback and support I’ve gotten from both my readers and authors I look up to. It’s quite mindblowing, honestly. When I first started writing I never imagined that by 23 I would be publishing my own book. Without my readers support, none of this would have been possible so it means the world to me. I’m just so grateful for all of them and can’t wait to see where this adventure takes us.

*Raevyn grunted in annoyance when one of her co-workers came dashing around the corner, running straight into her and sending her flailing around on the floor in front of the men before they had the chance to leave. She blushed a deep crimson as all eyes turned on her. “Dear Lord, may you swallow me up whole…” Raevyn whispered. Mr CEO chuckled and Raevyn squeaked in surprise, hoping against all hope that he hadn’t heard her. “Most women prefer to call me Sir and to do the swallowing themselves, but I’m all for equal rights.” Mr. CEO said as he graced Raevyn with a rare smile and helped her to her feet.*
