Tell us a bit about yourself

By day I’m a bookkeeper and by nights and weekends I’m learning to be a writer. So, not telling you my age, but will say I have two wonderful adult children and a husband that supports my foray into the writing world, although he refuses to read my books. Lol

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, but never really had the courage until a year ago. Before I lived to read now, I live to both read and write.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My love of Sci-fi started many, many years ago but it was authors like David Weber, Michael Anderle, and Wendie Nordgren that had me wanting to try my hand in this genre.

°

°

What are you working on now?

The fourth book in the Koci Hybrid Series.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Other than I prefer writing at my desk instead of on a laptop or iPad.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To become a full time writer.

°

°

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

Get an Editor. Yes it cost money but so worth it in the end.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you! Without readers we couldn’t share our stories.

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hmm, where do I start. I’m a Sci-fi author. I plan to venture out to other genres in the near future. I’m actually writing two contemporary romance novellas that will be out this summer. I’m originally from Nova Scotia, Canada. After meeting my husband I moved to the USA. Flash forward 8 years. I currently live in Alabama with my husband, two sons, four cats, and my fish. We move around a lot. I live a quiet lifestyle of housewife, and stay at home mom. My life is a bit norm, so I don’t have any crazy stories to tell.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Surprisingly no, I recently wanted to become one — I want to say within the last 4 years. I adore so many great authors. I’d have to give them all credit for me writing today. If it wasn’t for new authors creating new worlds and books, I likely wouldn’t have been inspired. So, I’d like to shout out to all the wonderful authors out there, thank you for being my inspiration!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My inspiration was fear. Having fear is healthy, but what if you wrote about that fear to help overcome it? So, that’s what I did. I have a huge fear of snakes. HUGE. Alabama has a lot of snakes in its green wonderland. Often times, when I go for nature walks with my boys, we see snakes sunning themselves. I usually walk (run) by them, I have respect for them. Meaning, I keep away from them. Though I fear our serpent friends, I know a good amount about them. I decided to write about them to help myself. So far, it’s not working, at all — but the experience has been a blast!

°

°

What are you working on now?

Well, I just finished book two in my Sky Serpent Clan series. I’m doing two contemporary romance novellas, it’ll be part of a Forever safe series which will feature many other amazing authors. After that I plan to write about Tara. She’s the next in my Sky Serpent Clan series line. That’s what I’m currently working on right now.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Possibly? I always have one of my four cats, tea, and some form of candy within arms reach.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I know I’m not perfect, but one day I hope my writing will grow, and get better with time. That people who read my books, will continue to enjoy them.

°

°

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

As a newbie myself, I want others out there to know — don’t be afraid to take that jump. Take the first step, you can do it! Write what makes you happy and don’t stop. Surround yourself with other authors and support one another. Having author friends are wonderful. Lastly, don’t take bad reviews to heart. Not everyone will enjoy your book and that’s okay, that doesn’t mean others won’t enjoy your book. I’ll be cheering you all on from the sidelines.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

A huge thank you to everyone that has read my first book, and my second. To those that helped me spread the word around, and those that have supported me, it helped a lot. To the spectacular readers that have posted reviews stating they loved my book, and gave me tips. You make writing worth it. You’re all truly appreciated!

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

I work full time in public health but I also write full time. I have a wonderful hubby who supports me and boys I love dearly. I’m passionate about books, wine, writing, and family.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

Yes and no. I became passionate about books and writing in high school but the real love for words happened in elementary school when I read the Chronicles of Narnia for the first time. After that, I was addicted.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

I’ve always been fascinated with the Salem witch trials so this new PNR takes a spin on that and adds a reverse harem flair with plenty of action and scary villains.

°

What are you working on now?

°

My next book is about a wolf shifter and a new series.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

Not really. I drink a lot of tea and like to listen to music.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Keep writing and enjoying life.

°

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

°

Write every day. Practice makes perfect, or at least it attempts to do so. You definitely have to be prepared to sacrifice but it’s worth it.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

Yes! I love my readers. They make me smile and their loyalty means the world to me. Thank you for all your support!

Author Renee Rose #interview

Please give a warm welcome to USA Today Bestselling Author Renee Rose

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I’m Renee Rose, a USA today bestselling author who writes steamy kinky romance with alpha males and hot domination. I’m probably best known for my bestselling mafia romance series Vegas Underground, the Bad Boy Alphas series (sexy alpha shifters!) and Zandian Masters /Zandian Brides series (alien slave domination).

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Always! I was an avid reader by kindergarten and always always wanted to write my own books, it just took me a while to get here. 🙂

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I adore dangerous men– bad boys, super spies, etc. My new mafia series Vegas Underground features tough, dominant, scary men and the feisty heroines who bring them to their knees.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on a bad boy alpha book, Alpha’s Prey. It features a bear shifter mountain man and the curvy scientist he has to rescue from a storm.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I don’t have an orderly brain, so this doesn’t make sense, or maybe it’s why I have to write this way, but I really prefer to write a book linearly. Otherwise I feel like I lose the story and emotional threads.

What are your hopes for the future?

I would love to keep growing my readership and launch a YA paranormal series.

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

Write what you love. Love what you write. That’s all it takes, really, but it’s easy to get into doubt and judgment, which kills your creation.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I f-ing love my readers. I am so grateful every day that I have an audience for my books. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
