Author Melissa Adams #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Melissa Adams

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I’m a former flight attendant from the UK, now turned full time author. I’m UK based but I lived in the US for a number of years with my American husband. We decided to come back to Europe 7 years ago because we enjoy the more laid back lifestyle here. I speak 4 languages and I love dogs, especially Yorkshire terriers.

What has happened work wise since our last interview? I became a USA Today bestselling author.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My husband! My next release is The Sergeant, book 2 of my RH military stepbrother series and all I know about the US military and living in a US military installation comes from direct experience.

What are you working on now?

I’m about to finish writing The Heartbreakers, book 1 of a brand new RH extreme sports series. It’s really, really, really steamy. But there’s a plot that centers on unrequited love, legacy and revenge.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I need complete silence. And I type all my books on my iPad Pro without a keyboard. I prefer tapping on the screen, it’s easier on my wrists.

What are your hopes for the future?

To be able to continue to write full time and to see not hundreds but thousands of reviews on my books. A huge dream would be to have a movie or TV show based on one of my series (a girl can dream lol)

What have you learned about publishing since our first interview?

I’ve embraced the steamier side of romance. I’m no longer embarrassed to write a sex scene, they’re actually my favorite, but they are important for my stories, they aren’t just smut inserted in the story for the sake of it.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for reading my books, follow me on social media, and if you love my books, please consider leaving a review, it really helps.

Author Mariah Ankenman #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Mariah Ankenman

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Hi! I’m Mariah Ankenman and I write sassy and swoon-worthy romance. When I’m not writing or reading I can be found watching horror movies (bonus point for creature features), infusing vodka (and drinking it, lol), or flying on a sling/hoop apparatus in my aerial classes.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Sexy firefighters. I could elaborate, but really I think that’s all anyone needs to know;)

What are you working on now?

Currently I’m working on the third Mile High Firefighters Book: The Firefighter’s Dilemma. It’s Ward and Díaz’s story and it’s going to be so good!

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I cannot listen to any music. I can only listen to the sounds of storms. If I listen to music it just turns into a karaoke session and I get no writing done, lol. 

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to have a book with a print run some day and it would be amazing to hit a big list, but honestly as long as my books bring people joy, I’m happy.

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

Take every bit of advice with a grain of salt (even mine). Do your own research. There’s no one right way to write a book or publish. All publishing is valid, you just need to take the path that works for you. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you so much for all the love and support, an author is nothing without their readers. I hope to bring you stories of love and happiness for years to come!

Please give a warm welcome to author Victoria Larque

First Interview

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Hey, thanks for having me. *sips coffee* I guess I’m still the same weirdo you interviewed waaay back.

But concerning myself, I am V. I write books. Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. I grew up in Namibia (a beautiful country directly above South Africa) and now live and work in the German woods with my husband. 

What has happened work wise since our last interview?

Many things! I have almost finished my first series, The Myre Series, that I have self-published. It only needs one additional book and will be done! Wooot!

Then I was snagged by a Butterdragons Publishing and have thus far published two novels with them. I am also featured in two anthologies with BDP and it has been a blast so far. 

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My Duology (the second book released on the 30 of November) plays in Namibia for the most part, and obviously the nature and feel of my home has been very inspiring when it comes to those books. Other than that… dunno… Hahaha. My dreams? My dreams are crazy, and filled with fantastical ideas and inspirations.

What are you working on now?

Right now I am working on editing my first novel in its German version to release it in January. Furthermore I am finishing up a standalone, called Lakeborn, and am trying to get time in to write that fifth book in my Myre Series. So… Busy, busy, busy!

Do you have any quirks while working?

Hmmm. I listen to music. That’s it. No real quirks, sorry

What are your hopes for the future? 

To actually – for once – deserve a little orange bestseller tag. That would be awesome. And generally to be able to live off of my writing.

What have you learned about publishing since our first interview?

That the hardest part about writing and publishing is marketing. Writing the book is easy in comparison.

Do you have anything to say to your followers? 

Thank you for standing at my side and reading my books. I actually know most of you by name by now and I am very lucky to get to interact with the people reading my stuff. You are awesome!

I hope to be able to entertain you far into the future!

Author K.R. Hall #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Karen Hall

Tell us a bit about yourself… 

I grew up as a Navy child. My dad was transferred about every two years. I was terribly shy, and it was hard to make friends. I was in the Air Force from 1984 to 1992. I moved to Colorado with my then three-year-old son. 

I was a single mom for 14 years. I met my soulmate in 2003, and we married in 2004. I have three adult children. Hubby and I had our dream home built in 2015. We live there with our two chihuahuas. 

I’m addicted to chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate, I enjoy milk, but I hate white. I love Cherry Coke Zero Sugar. I drink iced tea and hot tea. In the winter, I drink dark chocolate hot cocoa with Reddi-Wip whipped cream. 

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

I wanted to be a writer in the third grade, but my dad said I needed a job with a guaranteed income. December 2009, I quit my job due to health issues. My first six months of being unemployed were great. I still got up early to see my husband off to work then I cleaned the house. It was just the two of us, and it was easy to keep clean. I read a lot from my favorite authors, Sue Grafton, Dean Koontz, and Stuart Woods. I also read romance novels. My first Paranormal Romance (PNR) was VA Dold’s Le Beau series.

I met Vickie at the Reader Appreciation Weekend for the Denver RomCon in September 2016, and she changed my life. I remember being very nervous. When Vickie came around the corner, I tried to calm down. Her smile lit up her face when she spotted me. 

We hugged, and my husband took a photo of us. Vickie is so down to earth. She could tell I was nervous, and to help settle my nerves, she said to me that she put her pants on one leg at a time, just like everyone else.

We spent the weekend getting to know each other at the event. I told Vickie about my ideas about writing a book about bear shifters. She told me that I should write it and she would love to help me out. I called her and emailed her a lot while I wrote my first book.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

Many things inspire book ideas. A lot of them have been inspired by photos. My newest book, Project X-Force: B.E.A.R. – Bravo Echo Alpha Romeo, was inspired by the cover model’s image. 

What are you working on now? 

I am starting to write my first RH (Reverse Harem). Just as a harem comprises one man with multiple women, a reverse harem consists of one female protagonist and three or more male love interests. However, this is not a situation where the woman must pick her one true love by the end of the story; instead, she enters into relationships with … several (if not all) of them.

Vega: Stargazers’ Prophecy is the sixth book in a twelve-book series with other authors. Author Gina Manis saw the movie Stardust and had the idea for the series. The other authors joining us are Jewels Arthur, Jade Waltz, Skyler Andra, Quell T. Fox, J.R. Thorn, Krystal Pena, Ciara Skye, Hanleigh Bradley, Zelda Knight, Naomi Panthera, Kenzie Graves, and Eve Bradley.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

My office is full of stuffed animals (mainly bears). I have bear figurines and wall art. I must have silence when I write, but sometimes I turn on my bear water fountain. I tend to nibble while I write. I sometimes will have nuts, string cheese, and beef jerky. I also have chocolate candies.

What are your hopes for the future? 

I hope to make it to the USA Today’s Bestsellers list one day. I would also like to have a little orange flag from Amazon Bestsellers. In the meantime, I will continue to write and hope readers will enjoy my books.

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

Just keep doing what you love. I rewrote my first book six times before it was published. I have only been an indie author. It would be best if you did what feels right for you. Don’t let anyone tell you how or what to change. 

An editor told me to change the lead character’s nationality in a book. I explained that I didn’t feel comfortable doing so. My book was written a certain way, and the people who have read it enjoy the book.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for trusting my books. I’m thrilled that you like them. I enjoy writing and have loads of stories that are bursting to come out of my head and onto paper. I will continue to write and self-publish.

Author Annabel Allen #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Annabel Allen

Tell us a bit about yourself… 

Well, I’m a full-time author/freelance writer living in Ontario, Canada. I write under my birth name as well as Annabel Allan, though I keep the spicier subjects more for Annabel! Haha. 

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

I actually have not! I always enjoyed writing, but for most of my life, I wanted be a scientist, a Palaeontologist. Dinosaurs were always my jam! Once I hit high school though, I wanted to tell stories, turning more towards film. Then I discovered I really can’t tell a story successfully through visuals…so I fell back on writing. I just fell in love with it!

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

The Goode Pain series has an interesting past. I wrote the core of the book as a different novel, meant for a different type of series. It was rejected, so I shelved it. Then I was asked to write short stories for a friend, which he mentioned he wanted one about a kick ass Dominatrix. I actually started on the short story (which was titled “Goode Pain”) and by the time I finished what is now the first chapter, I thought man! I need to make this a novel. Then I remembered what an instructor in film school said, that I should flip the dynamic to make things more interesting. So, I took the old manuscript and rewrote it. I then retitled it “Edgeplay”. 

What are you working on now? 

Right now, I’m doing rewrites on my original vanilla series Smoke Chaser. The first two books are released, but I felt the third book was the weaker link, so I’m doing rewrites and edits on it. 

Do you have any quirks while working? 

It depends on the manuscript as well as what time it is during the day when I’m writing! Haha. If I’m writing at night, I tend to put on music while writing, which isn’t very quirky. But if I’m writing during the day, I HAVE to put on a movie. And that movie…is usually Jurassic Park! Weird to write BDSM when you have people running from escaped dinosaurs! Haha. 

What are your hopes for the future? 

I think like most authors, I hope for the bestseller status. I went a long while without my writing supporting me, but things are finally working out in that area. But I would love that little orange banner on Amazon saying “Bestseller”! 

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

Do your research! It’s super important to either find someone who can mentor you OR do your own research on how publishing works. I love to answer questions about publishing and writing, so if anyone wants to reach out to me, they definitely can!

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Just that I appreciate them! I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read my work. AND please leave a rating and review! Reviews feed authors! 🙂
