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.

💎 Order of the Akasha 💎

by L.M. Moore

The search for their fifth will bring them more than they bargained for.

A part of the ancient magical Order of the Akasha, four male witches await their last remaining piece… only to be stunned when a badass descendant of a voodoo priestess shows up. All five-foot-feisty of her turns their world on edge, making them rethink everything they thought they knew about enforcing the one rule in their magical world–harm none.

Despite the supernatural forces binding them together, there’s one slight problem–there’s never been a female Enforcer before. Sexy or not, the guys have sworn their allegiance to a tradition that calls her very presence unnatural. Their pull, though, doesn’t care about ‘never-beens’ or ‘what-ifs’.

The deeper their connection, the more their magic morphs and changes, leaving them desperate for answers and teetering into the very world of evil they promised to protect others from. Before it’s too late, they must uncover the secrets of their past before the magic that brought them together destroys them all.

WARNING: Summoned By Magic is one sexy, magical ride! Read at your own risk!

🐉 Upon An Alpha Moon 🐉

by Savannah Skye

Bailey is the youngest daughter of werewolf pack leader Hokkai ‘One Eyed’ Jack, and lately she’s been causing trouble…

Apparently, enough to trouble that someone wants her dead.

But when three Wolf Takers are hired to protect her, Bailey is forced to take matters into her own hands. She doesn’t like the idea of being babysat by anyone, let alone three human males, and she’ll do whatever it takes to escape their clutches. Too bad these males are far more than mere mortals, and will stop at nothing to continue their watch over her…even if it means pinning her under them.

Action-packed suspense with lots of romance and a compelling mystery!

Tell us a bit about yourself

This is always the toughest question… I’m in my late twenties, I am a fur-mama to four bengals and two mini schnauzers. I love coffee and tea. I’m from New England originally but now I’m in Florida. I’m also a total nerd, have quite a few tattoos, I’m pagan and currently obsessed with bookish candles from Frostbeard Studio.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, I actually have not. I went to school for marketing and public relations. I’ve got my masters degree in all that stuff, but I started working at a bookstore when I was 18 and continued the trend through college and a bit after. I ended up in publishing, and then had an idea and wrote my first book, Mark of Truth. I’ve always been an avid reader so my friends and family say they always assumed I’d end up doing something with books, but I had no idea I could even write a book!

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m inspired by obscure mythology most of the time. So I usually always start there and build the world. I’m big into history and the old ways of life before technology, although I love technology. Can you say Netflix LOL.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now, me and my partner in crime/sister from another mister, D.D. Miers are working on a super secret project I can’t go into any details about… and we’re working on finishing up the Kresova series. I’m also working on the first book in my new Wild Huntress trilogy. First sneak peeks of that book can be found over on Book + Main.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Hmm… I’m not sure if I have any quirks while writing… I like to write things in order if that counts? Where as Dee can jump around and write random bits of things anywhere in the book. Now a days I typically have a candle lit, and coffee close by. I listen to music as well typically.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to see my books on more shelves and in more bookstores of course! I’d also love to see my books in other languages. Otherwise, I just want to keep writing, and meeting incredible readers who make it possible!

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

Do you have all day? I’ve been in this industry in one way or another for the past nine years. I’ll give some top tips though.

-Write your own rules. Literally. Don’t follow the rules anyone tells you that are there. Write your story as you see fit.

-Hire a professional editor. If there’s one place in this industry you don’t want to be cheap in or cut corners, it’s this. Definitely get a developmental edit for your first few books, or all of them, I know people who love them every time. I am still learning at least one or two new lessons about my craft with every book I have edited.

-With those edits, some of the best advice I got when doing edits, because it can be super overwhelming, is open up the document, stare at all the red, scroll through it, then close the document for at least 24 hours before you dive in. This way you’re less emotional from the shock of all the red on the page.

-Always be kind to fellow authors. There are plenty of readers to go around. Avoid any drama, and always be honest about your intentions when speaking to someone you don’t know.

– It’s better to be up front and honest if you want something from another author than to beat around the bush and stroke their ego. 9 times out of 10 if someone comes right out and sends me a message to like their page or for help with marketing etc, I’ll say yes vs. someone who bullshits me.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you. Merci. Grazie. Danke. Gracias. Takk. I see all of you and thank you isn’t enough to explain the love and gratitude I have for all of you. I never thought I’d have readers from all over the world, let alone outside my own friends and family. So thank you for making me part of your family. I hope I get to hug and meet each and every one of you in person!

🌪Guardians of Skye & Shadow 🌪

by Lidiya Foxglove

My world isn’t safe. The northern gate lies open and monsters roam the land. Towns are locked behind walls, protected by the emperor and his Black Army. Once, a fated priestess and her four guardians kept the gate sealed with magic, but there hasn’t been a priestess in over a century…or so I thought.

When a monster attacks me within the walls of my village, I am saved by Sir Forrest—the quiet former soldier who came to Istim three years ago.

Turns out, he’s been watching me. Waiting for my powers to awaken.

I am the fated priestess.

But there have been others. The genius commander Abel and the Black Army have killed them all. Sir Forrest found out the truth, and now he is driven by his sacred mission to help me find my guardians and bring me to the gate.

All I have to do? Find them and join with them in the Grand Quintet to grant them the powers I apparently hold, close the gate, and save the world…without suffering the same dire fate as the priestesses who came before me.

I’ve always liked attention…but this is too much.

This reverse harem fantasy romance trilogy is for those who enjoy plenty of steam, strong heroines, a few hot guys (and one who is just pretty and probably sparkles), more tragic pasts and secrets than any group of people should reasonably have, and winged cats.

🐺 Dark Moon Shifters 🦊

by Bella Jacobs

One woman on the run. Four dangerously sexy bodyguards. And a war brewing that will change the shifter world forever…

I’m living on borrowed time, fighting for survival against a deadly new virus that has no cure and a cult doing its best to brainwash me. But when a mysterious note shows up on my windowsill one night, its chilling message–Run, Wren–launches me out of the frying pan and into the fire.

Within hours, everything I thought I knew about my life, my family, and my origins is obliterated, and I’m racking up enemies at an alarming rate. Between the cult I’ve just escaped, a violent shifter faction out for my blood, and an ancient evil who eats “chosen ones” like me for breakfast, my last hope is to join forces with four dangerous-looking men who claim they were sent to guard my life.

Luke, a werewolf with a rap sheet. Creedence, a lynx shifter who never met a mark he couldn’t con. Kite, a bear kin with a mean right hook and heart of gold. And Dust, my childhood best friend and dude voted least likely to be a secret shape-shifting griffin.

But are these men really what they seem?

Or are my alpha guardians hiding a secret agenda of their own?

I’m not sure, but one thing is for certain–choosing the right allies will mean the difference between life and death. For me, and everyone I love.

Seeking Serena

by Lily Levi

Serena Moon was born to die as a sacrifice to the dark throne’s next heir, one of thirteen residing in London’s Darkmourn Mansion. It’s what all lesser vampires are called to do and there’s no way around it, unless somehow she doesn’t die. But that’s never happened… until now.

Exhausted, Serena’s been on the run for three years, never once forgetting that she made a mockery of their “biting game” by walking away when she should’ve died. But what’s a life in the shadows, constantly running from creatures that never show themselves?

Except for when they do – and they’re just as she remembers them.

Will Serena survive their new game? Protect her or destroy her are the only rules this time around and with thirteen vampiric heirs ready to play, there’s no escape this time. Which of the Master’s heirs will fight for her when the game’s ultimate reward is the most powerful position in the world?

But Serena Moon isn’t at all that she appears to be with a dark past in an empty, shadowed home; whispers of the demon Adramalech; an ancient Icelandic prophecy; and her stalwart refusal to die.

Seeking Serena, a paranormal vampire romance/thriller, is a full-length novel first published as a serial in 5 parts. This is the complete series.

In the human city of Anthoinia, Dela Stonebridge has already lost her brother to the Choosing.

Now it’s her turn.

The grueling journey across the mountains is always dangerous, but when magic and madness descends, she discovers herself exiled with the leaders of the three other races.

The Norc, Warsgra, is huge and brutish. The Moerian, Orergon, is practically a savage. And the Elvish prince, Vehel, hides a secret that has the power to tear their world apart.

But as unlikely friendships are born and the truth is revealed, Dela must accept if she has the power of a magic long thought dead…

That of the Dragonstone and the Dragonsayer.

Book One: Through a Dragon’s Eyes

Book Two: With a Dragon’s Heart

Book Three: Into a Dragon’s Soul

Lion Mistress

by R.A. Steffan

The gods promised her a savior.

The gods are a bunch of lying bastards.

Instead of delivering her from a life of slavery, they ripped away everything she ever cared about.

Now, Kathrael must choose. Lie down and accept her fate, or risk her life and try to change the future.

Destiny is calling, but she won’t face it alone. She has a gentle Seer, a crazy lion-shifter, and the ghost of her dead best friend on her side. Of course, none of them have the faintest clue what they’re getting themselves into. But that’s all right. Because Kathrael of Rhyth has chosen to fight for freedom.

And as far as she’s concerned, the gods can either step in line, or get the hell out of the way.

* * *

The Complete Lion Mistress Collection is a WhyChoose romance trilogy with an exclusive bonus epilogue story. It clocks in at over 800 pages (300,000 words), and the ending is HEA.

A special note for reverse harem lovers: I had never heard the term “reverse harem” when I wrote this series. It was always conceived as a poly romance story, just like The Horse Mistress. That said, it features one amazing woman who ends up with three adoring men at the end, and she is the glue that holds the four of them together.

The pace is medium burn, and the books contain explicit love scenes with strong LGBT content. If you dislike guys getting it on with each other, you’ll dislike this series.

💫 The Lilithura Prophecy 💫

by Grace White

For Daiya Cattiva, turning eighteen is a nightmare come true. Once she Awakens, her body will no longer be her own, and she will thirst for physical connection—need it to survive. But the bond is only temporary, and Daiya will be forced to satiate the demon inside her, time and time again. For that is the burden of the Lilituria.

But Daiya doesn’t want to hurt anyone—especially not the cute guy in class, with his annoying charm and fervent persistence. Staying away from Kai Stanton is the smart thing to do. The only choice she has. But when she loses control and kisses him, everything changes, and Daiya knows their connection is deeper than just fleeting lust.

Determined to uncover the truth, Daiya finds herself at the heart of an ancient prophecy that could alter the balance of good and evil forever.

She was never supposed to fall in love, but their love will change everything.

Book #1 in a brand new mature YA / NA paranormal romance series. Suitable for readers 16+

Her Dark Protectors

by Jada Storm & Emma Stark

Four cursed warriors. One vampire-hunting detective. This sexy, kick-ass reverse harem series will keep you up all night…

This boxed set contains all four books in the Her Dark Protectors series: Cursed by Night, Kissed by Night, Hidden by Night, and Broken by Night. If you like snarky detectives, badass warriors, HOT sex scenes, and page-turning action, this is the series for you!

Description from Book One:

My name is Ace Bissett, and I’m a paranormal detective who doesn’t believe in magic.

Or at least, I didn’t before I met them.

The day I inherited my aunt’s old house, everything changed. One moment, I was convinced that magic was a hoax. The next, I’m surrounded by four winged, fanged, ridiculously hot guys who are definitely not human, and who insist that I’m the only one who can break the curse that binds them to the night.

I know I should run far, far away from this hot mess, but there’s a connection between us I can’t deny. I’m seeing things I can’t explain, feeling things that don’t make sense. The detective in me has never been able to resist a mystery, and this one is just begging me to dig in.

But all that will have to wait, because there’s a new threat stalking my city. One with a taste for blood and bone, unable to be killed or captured by normal human means.

It’s a good thing I’ve got four new roommates to help me hunt them down. But even if I didn’t, I’d figure out a way. Because I never give up. I never give in. And I always protect what’s mine.

Author Ava Mason #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

Umm, I don’t now. I’m just a normal person. haha. I’ll try and make it more interesting than my bio. I was eighteen years old the first time I ever saw the beach. I love the feel of clean hardwood floor on my bare feet. I love trees and greenery and the beach. I’m afraid of the deep ocean *shiver* I lived in Hawaii for a time and learned that fact about myself. I could never force myself to go snorkeling because I have a stupid irrational fear of the ocean. My inspiration is Eric Thomas, I’m totally addicted to his kool-aid. My best friend died about 6 years ago and I still haven’t gotten over it. I’m very into positive self talk – I can force myself to do certain things because I talk myself into it. I am a total crossfit junkie. Like seriously, I’m one of those people. haha.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Not at all. I actually wrote poems and stuff when I was a kid but only as a form of expression, not really wanting to publish any of them. But one day I wrote out a paragraph of an idea that popped in my head. I didn’t really do anything with it, just put it aside. One day my hubby read it and encouraged me to keep going. So it’s all because of him that I’m a writer today.

What are you working on now?

Right now, I’ve actually got 3 projects in the works. I have a co-author, Raven Steele, and we’re writing a very gritty urban fantasy series. I love writing it because I get to explore the darker side of myself. It delves deep into the underbelly of the supernatural world, where there’s violence and hatred and lots of fighting. But our characters always manage to find hope and love through it, not only with their love interests but also in their friendships with each other. That’s one thing I really love about this series. It’s not just about magical beings and romance, but about 3 friends who find each other. They all come from a very lonely existence, and through each other they find happiness.

I’m also writing a bully reverse harem, which is really stretching me as a writer! It’s a difficult path to travel – how to write someone who is so unbearably terrible to others and still make the readers fall in love with them. It’s also stretched me because I’ve never written something so character driven. But I’m really enjoying it a lot! I’ve learned how much I love to write such terrible people. I’ve always loved writing grey characters, especially the villains. Making the readers see their motivations and hopefully understanding them. Maybe even liking them a little bit. And this is an extension of that.

The other project I’m working on is super secret but I’ll be announcing it soon! And this one is more just something super fun and easy. It gives me a little bit of a break from all the dark stuff I’m writing.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I go through tons and tons of Mentos gum. Like I buy the bottles in packs and just chew and chew and chew. I also am addicted to cherry Coke Zero and Le Croix sparkling water, haha. I also listen to lots of music while I write, and usually end up with a playlist that speaks to me while I’m writing each book, then I move on to something else when I’m writing a different one. Bose headphones are my jam.

What are your hopes for the future?

A lot of my hopes have to do with my family. I want my kids to grow up and be happy. I can almost say I’ve accomplished my life goals, which is to have a great, loving family. Of course, there are other things I want. I’d love to be able to travel a lot and be financially set. But my main thing is that I hope to always keep my husband happy and my kids close.

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

Ahh, this is a really hard question because there are a zillion things I could say. I’m trying really hard to think of something inspiring or helpful but really what it comes down is what all the other authors have ever said. You have to sit down and write. There is nothing more important than that.

I guess if I could give 3 pieces of advice that have helped me become more successful, I would say to first, if you want to write something that would sell, then read all the successful books in the genre you want to write. Read all of them, all the time. If you do that, then things will come a lot more naturally.

Second, learn about story structure. It does matter. A lot. I don’t even care if you’re a pantster. The structure of the story is the undercurrent of a good book. I cannot stress that enough. There are ways to structure a book that can still allow for a lot of pant-sing.

Third – and I have to admit that I copied this from Michael Anderle, but I think it’s the most important piece of advice I could ever give (besides to sit down and write) and that is to create characters that readers care about. You can mess up everything else but if your readers don’t care about your character, it won’t matter if you’ve done everything else perfectly.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Readers, what can I say? haha. Readers drive me. There is nothing like the feeling of getting a message from someone who is affected by your books. I had a reader tell me that she was so inspired that she went back to school to learn how to be a writer. Other people wrote to me about how my books helped with their struggles, or help them forget the constant pain that they’re in. I love that kind of thing. Maybe it’s selfish or egotistical, but that kind of thing is like pure gold to me

Author Adrienne Blake #interview

Please give a warm welcome to Adrienne Blake

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

My name’s Adrienne Blake. Born in London, I moved to the States in 2001 and soon got into my writing groove. I have a number of published books, writing across the genres although right now, I’m loving my UF series. I’ll talk about that in a moment.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

Writing is in my blood – you could bury me deep in the ground away from the world and I’d still be compelled to write stories. I guess it’s a conscious decision to publish – that’s something else, and yes, I always dreamed of people recognizing me as an author. Thinking about it gives me the tingles.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

I wrote a few silly UF shorts. I’d been writing Alien fiction at the time, and my PA, Pike Perrie, said though the old stuff was good, fantasy was definitely my forte. And so it began….

°

What are you working on now?

°

The Misty Cedars series is somewhat unique. It follows the adventures of Holly, a woman who is attacked by a vampire and accidentally finds herself in the land of the supernatural. Mischance follows mischance, and her body changes into a series of supernatural beings as the series progresses.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I edit in red-roller ball. I use a new one for every new book. No other pen will do – it’s a thing.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

°
I want my books on the best-selling shelves of Barnes and Noble. And a cure for cancer.

°

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

°

Stay true to your dream. Don’t be sidetracked by somebody else’s.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

I think they’re wonderful – and love finding out what they want from me. They’re free to drop in to my FB group anytime for a chat. I’m there every day, much more than I should be, along with other authors and friends. Stop by with a coffee.

Teaser

°

A slight breeze caught her red hair, and she ran her hands through her silky curls, which were sleeker than before. She raised her hands onto the top pane of glass and pushed against the frame, closing her eyes as she allowed the night to circle her body and invade her pores. She felt glorious, and very much one of the living. Surely what Noah had told her was wrong. Not that she thought he would lie to her, but perhaps he was mistaken.

“You’re very beautiful.”

The sudden sound made her start and turn, but she didn’t cover herself up. Holly wanted Noah to see her, just as she was now. She needed him to. At this moment, the only thing that mattered was to feel like a woman.

Yet, Noah never moved from the doorway. His eyes were fixed on her face, but he made no sign of making a move on her. Slowly, conscious of the gentle sway of her hips as she advanced, she crossed the room. Just inches away from him, she stood silent for a moment, her eyes reading his desire, sensing he wanted her as much as she needed to be wanted. But still he did not move to touch her.

Holly cast her eyes provocatively down her body, then with the backs of her fingers, ran a hand down from her shoulder, across her breast, where it lingered on her nipple, then traced along the crease of her bosom, circling back and forth suggestively.

Noah wanted her, she not only sensed it, but she could smell it. The scent of his longing was as clear as if he’d conveyed his desire on a written note. Noah’s pupils were dilated, and she could almost feel his shallow breaths as his own lungs betrayed him.

She took a step forward, and clasping his hand in her own, placed his open palm on her breast. The sense of another’s touch sent a jolt of desire through her body. Holly threw her head back, closed her eyes and gasped. Every part of her, every fiber of her being was hungry for him. Still, Noah didn’t move. He did nothing to remove his hand, but at the same time, made no attempt to advance the situation on his own.

She licked her lips and raised his hand to her mouth, kissing the tips of his fingers and his palm, then when she had kissed them all, she pushed his index finger into her mouth and started to suck it suggestively. Noah was entranced, his own lips parted, and he closed his eyes tight shut, trembling as her tongue worked its magic on his fingers. Holly now moved so close that Noah’s chest hair brushed her nipples, and that small contact sent violent shivers southward, making her pant with bold desire.

Her gaze locked with his, and Holly sensed a new power she knew no earthly human would be able to overcome. She raised her hands to his shoulders, then slowly traced down the outline of his arms, up over the soft hairs on his chest, caressing the circles of his nipples with just the lightest touch of her fingers. Then down and down her fingers crept, like a black widow slowly closing in on its prey. Yes indeed, no human could resist her now. Her hands clasped the top of his jeans.

But Noah wasn’t just any human. In that moment, he brushed her hands aside and put his own on her shoulders, not to press her forward, but merely to keep her from advancing further.

“I’m sorry, Holly,” he said. “But this cannot happen.”

The longing was still strong in her, and she tried to press forward, but his grip was firm.

“No.”

The spell was broken.
