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!

Lakeborn by Victoria Larque #amreading #newrelease

Happy release day Victoria Larque

Lakeborn

Eyes as deep as the bottom of her lake. A heart as wide and alive as the forest surrounding it. A voice as soft as the wind rustling through trees and as melodic as waves on pebbled ground. A power that is rooted within her very soul, the soul of her lake. She passes time flipping stones and dipping her toes. She has never asked for anything but peace. This is her lake. The lake of dreams, the lake of truth, the lake of life. And she will do anything to defend it.

Preorder Demon Rising by Victoria Larque

Demon Rising (Embers Duology Book 1)

-Urban Fantasy
-Paranormal Romance
-Enemies to lovers
-Angels and Demons… and a Hellcat

Desperate times make for enticing and dangerous bedfellows.
Fane is done living in Hell, and there is little time until her newest Maester has unrestricted ownership over her. When an Angel is captured and held in the Deep, she knows he might be her only chance at freedom—for only an Angel can break the demonic bond tethering her to Hell.
Mihr was ambushed by a bunch of Demons, who dragged him straight to the underworld. Now one of the Hellspawn—a sexy Demoness—offers him a way out. A forbidden way. He spent his life fighting her kind and avoiding temptation, but with freedom and life beckoning, he finally agrees to her conditions.
Together the unlikely pair flees, but the escape leaves Mihr close to death and in Fane’s care.
Soon both Heaven and Hell will come for them and they have to make a choice:
Die, or stay together.

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi! *waves*

My penname is Victoria Larque, but people call me V. I write Urban Fantasy with a dash of Paranormal Romance. Those are the genres I love reading and I combine them in my writing. My books always have a heavy romantic element, and there will be smexy scenes, but they are essentially plot driven—just to explain what I mean by that. ☺ My first series is called The Myre Series and currently has two books out. I am up to my ears in edits and rewrites of the third installment.

Originally from Namibia, I now live in Germany—in a charming house in the woods—with my very grumpy, antisocial husband, who I love more than anything.

In my spare time I love gaming, watching TV shows and movies, archery (I just started), and sleeping. I can’t emphasize the ‘sleeping’ part enough. Love it.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Well… I have always been a storyteller. From the moment I could talk I told wild tales. My imagination was always a vibrant and very alive place and when I went to boarding school, it was the thing that got me friends. When you’re little and far away from home, stories can help the homesickness, especially late at night when loneliness hits. Being the one who told the stories got me lots of friends very quickly, and I have never stopped telling them.

So, in a way, yes I have always wanted to be an author. But it took a long time until I actually worked up the courage to try it.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

A dream. I dreamt of my MC roaming the nightly streets of a big city, searching for something. There was a sense of hunger and desperation she felt, and that was it. I had to write her story, had to find out what she was looking for and get to know who she was.

°

What are you working on now?

The third installment of the Myre Series. It follows a different character than the first two books do, but fits into and continues the same storyline. It has action, romance, demons, shadows and a volcano the inside of which is a city.

Other than that I am working on a project with another Author that might, or might not see the light of day. Currently we’re working out how to write and plan together, and so far it’s been great fun. I’m not used to writing with another person, but we also beta-read for one another, so we know how the other person ticks, which makes it an awesome experience.

And I am working on an idea for a duology that has been floating around my head for a while now.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I listen to music, specifically hour-long melodic dubstep mixes. It’s not a music genre I’d normally listen to, but—for writing—I need it. ☺

Other than that… not really, no.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to sustain writing books by selling books. I don’t dare dream of it sustaining my entire income… that would be crazy. At least not right now. I take time publishing my work, about a year per book. In the indie community that is tortoise-level slow. People expect a new book every three months (at least). So the sell-through isn’t what I’d like it to be.

And I’d love to be able to actually publish more than one book a year. That would be awesome!

°

°

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

Talk to people and find your tribe. Ask questions, no matter how stupid you think they are. Get a writing buddy, listen to their feedback and criticism. Don’t let the sheer vastness of information and rules overwhelm you, just go through one thing a time.

And finally: Write what you love.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

You are amazing, kittens! I thank each and every one of you for picking up Daph’s story and coming on a ride with me. I would not, and could not, have done any of it without you.
