Screen Shot 2016-05-15 at 11.32.34 PMInterview with Horror Author D.M. Wolfenden

What draws you to the darker stories as a writer?

I grew up reading Stephen King and watching the old British, Hammer house of horrors. Not a lot scares me in a story unless it’s based on real life. That’s when I appreciate my life, and I am thankful for what I have, and that my family has their health.

Can you describe your collection Double Trouble: Not all trouble comes in two’s in one or two sentences for our readers?

It’s a collection of short stories that could very easily be true. There is evil in the world, sometimes, it’s us, when our deepest dark side surfaces, sometimes we don’t want to admit what we are capable of doing.

Is there a theme or message in your stories that you want your readers to grasp or are they all quite different?

They are all different, but the theme is basically the same, people can be very scary.

Are there other horror/suspense writers that inspire your own work?

I like Stephen King, James Herbert, Beverly Connor and Dean Koontz. I think they all probably influence my writing.

What draws you to the Paranormal Romance genre as a writer?

I enjoy reading the genre so when I started writing, it seemed natural for me to write in this genre. I also write some contemporary romance as well, depending on my mood.

Can you describe Change in one or two sentences for our readers?

How would you handle discovering that not only do shifters exist, but you are one? See how Nickie handles the news.

How did you come up with the idea of the Kitsune and their mythology as a group?

I’d read the Japanese myth of the Kitsune, they’re fox shapeshifter species. I wondered what would happen if there was a species of shifters, that shift to all kinds of animals. They could have an entire secret society, a governing board, a lore, etc. What do they call themselves? What if the person who organized them into a governing board was actually a fox? They decide call the species Kitsune to honor him and his heritage.

Interview with Historical Romance Author Samantha Kaye

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre as a writer?

The genre is historical fiction. I have always been interested in history and exploring untold stories of the past. I am an avid reader of letters and memoires of 18th and early 19th century France.

Why are your books set in France?

I have always been a Francophone. Part of the story is in France, the other part in the French Colonies. So many of the changes that impacted the last two hundred years began in 18th century France.   

Can you describe Amour in one or two sentences for our readers?

Amour is a simple story of innocence and love which takes place amidst a background of monumental changes. Nothing is constant except the commitment the two protagonists have to each other.

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

The story began as a series of conversations in my head which I started to note down. The conversations turned into scenes which provided the outline of the story.

Give us insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?

Nicolas is driven by two things, honor and love. Every decision he makes is motivated by those two things. Sérolène is driven by love and a complete devotion which is an equal match to Nicolas’ concept of honor. They are two rocks joined at the base that stand unmoving against a swirling tide of events.

Interview With Author Olivia Black

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre as a writer?

I’ve always written non-fiction trade books and manuals, yet always had a desire to write something a little less dry. Romance has always been a favorite genre of mine. But I always wished romance novels were a little more real. The formula has always been boy chases girl, boy gets girl, and they usually live happily ever after. That rarely happens, and I feel it sets women up with unrealistic expectations. With my stories, I throw in a few real-world twists, yet keeping a more realistic happiness. I’m hoping the entire category follows.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

Dr. Olivia Garvin “died” on the morning of her 42nd birthday, finding her sleazy husband being led away in handcuffs in front of the entire neighborhood. Emotionally lifeless and in need of some R & R, Olivia escapes to Oahu where the charismatic and wise beyond his years Kalani awaits as a result of a chance meeting.

Interview with Author Heather L. Benton

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre as a writer?

Rich Boys is a suspense/thriller novel, and though the characters are in their twenties, it deals with very mature issues. Although I’ve written comedy, as well… sometimes I find it easier to write dark stories. They always have some kind of silver lining to them, but I like to feel raw emotion when I write. It makes my work come to life more, and therefore creates a more vivid read.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

During a drunken party, aspiring dancer Autumn Wright is stolen away by one of the rich young men she grew up next door to, and finds herself on a luxury train under the guise of a impromptu joyride. After realizing it is actually her kidnapping, and taken to a remote mansion lodge in Manitoba, Autumn realizes she will have to decide: kill someone she cares for… or be killed.

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 7.06.06 PMInterview with Author Betsy Anne

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre?

Mine, Not Hers (Book 1-True Love Series) is romantic erotica. I think most authors tend to write what they would like to read themselves, and I definitely fall into that category. I’m a big fan of E.L. James, Christina Lauren and Sylvia Day.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

It’s the story of a true, deep love between two people that is tested when a suspected betrayal hits their marriage. Plenty of heat and suspense that keeps the reader guessing.

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

Every time I finished reading a book, I’d think to myself, ‘I really want to write!’  I allowed the story to develop on it’s own as I was writing. Once I began, it took a little over a year.

Interview with Author Leigh Smith

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre? 

It is a period western and having grown up in the 50’s and 60’s when westerns were rife, the period has always intrigued me. Cowboys in white hats always seems like such a moral bunch.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

Lily Rose Cochrane grew up the spoiled daughter of a prosperous midwestern couple until she was fifteen when her life changed dramatically. Her mother passed and her father turned to the bottle leaving her to pick up the pieces. Feeling the weight of too many burdens placed on her young shoulders, she is looking for a way out.  She thinks she may have found it in Johnny Billings. Unfortunately, he’s not ready to make a commitment but Lily finds a way around his reticence. This is a story of young love, loss and finding love again.

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 9.31.55 PMInterview with Author Stephen Gane

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre as a writer?

The genre is Crime Thriller

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

A story of redemption, how unforeseen events can change a person’s life.

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

I was 65 years old and suffering from dyslexia I’ve always had problems with reading and spelling so writing a novel never entered my head. But, Christmas 2013, I had a dream and had to write the story. Seven weeks and three days later “A Questionable Hero” was finished. And now I have written the sequel. I hope you enjoy reading my novels as much as I enjoy writing them.

Interview with Author Ruth Price

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre?

This is a Christian Amish romance.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

Can an Amish widow and widower move through the pain of their past and losses in order to find love with each other?

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

I’ve often thought of survivor guilt. What would it be like to survive a tragedy that takes your entire family? How can you find the faith to live on in spite of that without forsaking God? I’ve been extremely blessed to not have been tested in this way, though as I get older, it becomes more imminent that one of us, my husband Harold or I, is going to outlive the other. I think the germ of this book was born from these thoughts. How do we reconcile a loving God with the tragedy of loss? And how can we love again? This is a theme which runs through my writing and definitely through this book.

Screen Shot 2016-04-02 at 6.10.26 PMInterview with Author Amie Saskatchewan

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre as a writer?

The ‘Re-ignite the Fire’ series focuses on a foray into BDSM. The first book, New Beginnings, is more of a beginners adventure into the world of domination and submission, and the suspense, curiosity and exploration of this completely new, and sometimes shocking, world. I was drawn to the genre after some of my own experiences as a slightly younger woman, as well as liking a bit of a thrill myself!

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

A couple who are looking to get some of the youthful passion back into their marriage find themselves caught up in a bizarre adventure culminating in an exploration of their inner desires and limits, sort of a ‘looking for one thing but finding something better’ scenario.

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

I was always lonely growing up in the countryside. I was so far from civilisation so when I moved to the city I just wanted to try everything I felt I’d been missing out on. After being introduced to the BDSM scene by a male friend I remember how out of my depth and scared I was, but so caught up in it I couldn’t shake the feelings of nervous excitement. This is the feeling I hope to capture in my books, especially the first two, ‘New Beginnings’ and ‘A Perfect Gift’.

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 6.00.58 PMInterview with Christian Author Canaa Lee

What is the message in your books that you want your readers to grasp?

Death changed my perspective on life, and moved me in the direction of seeking God. My Dad was a totally different man before he died. I knew at that moment that only God could change the heart of a man. I was misunderstood before I became a Christian, and even more so after becoming Christian. In order to clear up the misunderstanding about who I am, the Lord put it on my heart to share my life story with family and friends. They needed to see and to understand the brokenness, the hurt, the pain, the isolation, the loneliness that I had been dealing with my whole life, and no one ever took the time to ask or to be of any help, support or encouragement in my uniquely different personality. It was the supernatural love of God that mended my heart, changed my thoughts and opinions; He changed everything about me. Now, I can embrace being different, odd, and out of place, because I know Jesus loves me the way I am and wants to use my struggles in life to help others to see and to come into the everlasting love of Jesus Christ.

Are there other writers or speakers that inspire your own work?

I began Christian movies and documentaries. They helped mold my thinking as to what it really means to walk with the Lord. In 2014, I graduated to reading Christian-based postings and blogs. I took a special interest in faith-based issues that people are faced with every day: relationships, marriage, death of a loved one, depression, praying, forgiving, just to name a few. I have been very selective in the speakers and pastors that I watch on television.

Interview Michele Pariza Wacek

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre?

It’s a psychological thriller/mystery/suspense novel, plus I always throw in a strong romantic element into my novels as well as a touch of the supernatural. What I really love exploring is our view of reality — all of us would say we know what “reality” is … but do we? Is our perception accurate? Or are we in denial? (Or maybe the truth is somewhere in-between.) And I also love exploring our shadows or “dark side” — which is what a lot of mysteries/suspense are exploring.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

As a child, Kit’s twin sister Cat disappeared, never to be heard from again. Until one dark, twisted Halloween night. But is it really Cat? Or is it someone else playing a sinister and deadly game?

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

The two major images in the opening the chapter is actually what inspired me. I actually had that dream of a church as a child (although in my dream it didn’t end the same way) and the image of Cat in a wagon being pulled by her father — I was walking one day and passed a father pulling his daughter in a wagon. And there was something so determined in the way the man was walking that I remember thinking “gee, could I just pluck her out of the wagon and would he even know?” Then I started playing with that idea — what would happen if someone DID do something like that? And at some point my church dream collided with that idea and the story was born.  READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

 

 

TheMaverickMeetsHisMatch_300Interview with Author Anne Carrole

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre?

THE MAVERICK MEETS HIS MATCH is a contemporary romance. I love romance novels, reading them and writing them. In romance, because everyone knows that it is going to turn out okay, having great characters that grow is so very important and I love writing characters that have a lot of layers to them. And I also love writing (and reading) books that have a happily-ever-after. With so much turmoil about us, I want my reader to be assured that no matter what is happening in the world or in their personal life or what obstacles my characters are facing, my reader can count on a happily-ever-after. I know I need that when I read books.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

After her grandfather’s death, Mandy Prescott is determined to take back control of her family’s rodeo company from the man who broke her heart years ago. Ty Martin is just as determined to do right by his former mentor, Mandy’s grandfather, even if that means selling the company before it loses its sterling reputation. Mandy is prepared to fight him but a crazy provision in her grandfather’s will has changed the stakes. Risking her company is one thing. Risking her heart is quite another.

Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 12.34.24 AMInterview with Erotic Fiction Author Linda Nelson

What is your book’s genre and what draws you to the genre?

Bedgasm is a collection of fifteen erotica short stories. In all honesty, I think with my passion for writing and background working in the romance industry, it was inevitable that I was drawn to erotica. Intimacy is an integral part of relationships and in my opinion makes for a more well rounded adult storyline. Reality is that we all have fantasies and erotica is a great escape for people.

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

This book actually started off as an idea for a business I am involved with that wanted an erotica book for one of their romance boxes. I was writing articles and creative content already but after writing the first four stories for a mini book, I realised how much I enjoyed writing again and wanted to take it further. In line with my original concept, Bedgasm was designed with peoples evolving busy lives in mind. We don’t always have time to commit to a full-length novel and if your anything like me, I find a book hard to put down once I start. So these are short stories, you can finish one in under 30 minutes, with a variety of plots and sub-genres of erotica. I like the fact that with 15 stories, if one was in a sub-genre that really wasn’t your taste, you still had many more to choose from. From start to finish the whole process took around eight months, I was more worried about taking the time to end up with a quality product and I am delighted with the end result.

Screen Shot 2016-02-19 at 11.44.37 PMInterview With Author Matt Menter

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre?

The genre is medieval fantasy. I’ve always loved creating imaginary worlds and for a long time, I wanted to create a story of knights and magic. I wanted it to be a story full of castles, monsters, witches, wizards, and barbarians. It’s also a story of two gay characters fighting for love, so it falls into the LGBT category. I liked the idea of combining these two genres and seeing how that might play out.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

GOD OF WINTER tells the story of King Taran, who tells stories of his reign through letters to the lover he is forbidden to be with. As the years press on, as war and bloodshed continue to find their way to his doors, he must decide where his allegiance lies; to the one he loves, or to the kingdom that needs him.

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

This book began as just letters with a first-person voice. I liked this idea of an old king, speaking to the man he loves from high atop his castle. I returned to the story here and there. Sometimes, it would appear in the form of blog posts. Over time, if I was going through something, I would write these posts in the voice of the character. After awhile, I started to see that I had a number of these letters, and they were really beginning to say something interesting. By then, I thought it would be great to turn this into a more cohesive, streamlined novel. Soon, it was just a lot of finessing, cleaning up moments, adding in new characters, and building out different sections that were originally left unexplained. All this took about eight months.

Screen Shot 2016-02-14 at 3.50.10 PMInterview With Author Joan Schweighardt

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre?

I like to think of The Last Wife of Attila the Hun as historical fiction, because it is based in part on the true history of the times during which Attila lived and ruled (mid fifth century.) However, it is also based on legends that grew out of the same time period. For that reason some of the people involved with the publication of the book refer to it as a historical fantasy. Either category is fine with me.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

Due to a series of tragedies in her life, a Germanic noblewoman finds herself in possession of a sword she believes is cursed. Since Attila destroyed most of her village years before and remains an ongoing threat to her people, she decides to “gift” the cursed sword to him.

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

The Poetic Edda is a collection of fragmented poems and legends that found their way to Iceland centuries ago and existed orally until they were recorded in the 12th or 13th centuries. Some of these wonderful legends—on the themes of love, lust, betrayal, greed, loyalty, community and other universal issues—try very hard to bring the historical Attila into their narratives. When I first read them, I found the legends engaging, and when I began to research the history of Attila and found overlaps with the legends, I was inspired to begin the novel.

Screen Shot 2016-02-04 at 11.14.31 PMInterview with Author Aidy Award

What is your book’s genre or category and what draws you to the genre?

Aidy: Curvy Diversion is an erotic romance. I love happy ever afters (or even happy for nows) that come with a…ahem… happy ending. Happy with some naughtiness is my jam.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

Aidy: Danica, a plus-size model needs a break from the BDSM scene, so when Grant, an old friend calls and asks her to jump in on a last minute photoshoot, she’s in. Grant’s hoping she’ll be in for a whole lot more than dirty pictures.

Tell us the story behind the story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

Aidy: I’ve been trying to write Danica and Grant’s story for a year. Dani has been fighting me hardcore. So I went behind her back to find out what happened between her and Grant before they hook up at Devils and Angels, the BDSM club. Turns out, they spent some naughty times together on Tortuga Island off the coast of Costa Rica…in a hurricane.

Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 5.35.07 PMInterview with Writing Duo Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson

What is your book’s genre or category?

Loretta and I write in several genres, but our main love is mystery. The Vanished Lady is a mystery with a touch of romance.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

When Dana buys The Vanished Lady Inn, she discovers the place holds secrets, not only about a woman who vanished in the past—but the more recent disappearance of Amy Walden.

Tell us the story behind story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

We’ve always loved to travel to out of the way places to find inspiration for our novels. In Colorado we came upon many “painted lady” houses, which are Victorian homes trimmed in bright colors. From there, the plot developed, and the character of Dana, who dreams of restoring such a place, emerged. The book took us about a year to write, including the research.

Is there a part of you in any of the characters?

Loretta and I both are fascinated with historic homes from Southern mansions to Victorian inns and can’t pass up a tour of them. I think this aspect of our personalities is reflected in Dana. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

 

 

 

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 2.04.23 PMInterview with Author Evelyne Sants

What is your book’s genre or category?

It’s a book that’s hard to classify in one category because it’s full of suspense, it’s a little bit of a thriller and it also talks about love. It takes you through a different country and culture. It’s complicated to choose just one category, but I think that suspense would fit.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

The story is about a young girl, Marion.  She lives with a family who carries a dark secret that she will discover and this will put her in danger. She also will have a great,  mysterious love and because of it, she will suffer profoundly. To forget all her suffering she goes to India where she will discover magnificent people.

Tell us the story behind story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

I wrote this book during two years. I don’t really know how the story was born. It was a particular moment in my life when I was dreaming about one day having a little girl. If you read the book, you will understand it.  I’m someone who worries about the planet, the suffering of poor and oppressed peoples, especially women and children. I had to write about it and in this case, the county was India. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

 

 

Screen Shot 2016-01-19 at 10.32.15 PMInterview With Romance Author Jayla Jasso

What is your book’s genre or category?

Caribbean Jewel is a Historical Romance about pirates.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

In Caribbean Jewel, a young Englishwoman (Jolie) is caught committing a crime, flees for her life from her guardian’s bloodhounds, and manages to escape Crab Island on a brigantine commanded by a tall, handsome Spaniard named Marcano. He’s a former pirate-turned-privateer working for the Spanish crown, in Crab Island to dig up Spain’s national treasure, a huge gold nugget that was stolen from the cathedral at Seville. Saving Jolie’s life messes up his plans a little, not to mention the problems that arise when her guardian doesn’t give up so easily.

Tell us the story behind story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

I am a seat-of-the-pants writer, meaning I don’t plot out a story in advance, but just write and see where it goes. So forCaribbean Jewel, it all started with a dream I had that I was in big trouble for doing something wrong, and a huge, furious man was about to punish me in some way, so while he was distracted I jumped out of a second-story window to escape his wrath. In the dream I landed in some bushes, got up, and ran for my life. That’s how Caribbean Jewel starts on page 1—the heroine jumps out of a window and runs through a sugar cane field to escape. It’s set on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico (called “Crab Island” in the 1700’s.) I was very familiar with the island because I had spent time there with a Puerto Rican man I was dating in the 90’s, and the whole area has a long history of plantations, pirates, and plundering.

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 2.08.22 PMInterview with Author Siamac Rezaiezadeh

 What group of people would benefit the most from this book and why?

If you are selling a product or service and you are looking to improve your sales numbers, gain more control of your sales process or simply enjoy yourself throughout the sales cycle, then you should read this book. The framework I outline is one I put together over a number of years that enabled me to do all of the above and more.

Can you describe the book in one or two sentences for our readers?

The book takes the reader through a tried and tested “selling framework” of seven phases, from choosing potential customers to actually winning the deal. Each phase comes with practical tips on what you actually need to do to succeed and why.

What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

As I say in the book, when I started my career in technology sales I was given a lot of training on ‘what’ to sell and a lot of training on ‘why’ we sell it, but not really a great deal of training on ‘how’ to actually go out and sell. I started researching different sales methodologies, implementing and testing them over the course of my career, which ultimately led to this book.   So I guess you could say it has been in development for the best part of ten years, although the bulk of the writing took place over the last six months or so.

Screen Shot 2016-01-08 at 3.10.34 PMInterview With Author Willow Sanders

 What is your book’s genre or category?

My books kind of defy a specific genre or category 🙂 … It’s Romantic Comedy, but it has also been categorized as New Adult because of the age of my characters, and Contemporary Romance. Basically, its a sweet story that will make you smile!

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

Here’s the slug from Amazon: Hillary hadn’t meant to sleep with Bert “DJ XTC” Morder. She blamed the lack of public bathrooms, and one too many Jaeger bombs for her even contacting DJ XTC in the first place. Now, thanks to the Internet, and the unfortunate incident of the studio live stream, all of Chicago was wondering exactly who the girl with the red-soled shoe had been. How long can she keep her identity a secret, and what will happen once her secret is out?

 Tell us the story behind story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

This first story Dirty Little Secret, was actually written for NaNoWrimo waaaaay back in 2004. I found myself unemployed back in 2012 and decided to try my hand at self-publishing. So I dusted off this manuscript, cleaned it up and made it a bit more current and off I went. The book originally took me 30 days to write (I wrote it during National Novel Writing Month wherein you need to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November). Then when I dusted it off and polished it up in 2012 probably another two months of rewrites and edits. So, maybe three in total.

The story behind the story. Well, in my other life, when I’m not writing, I’ve worked in numerous radio stations. So, this book was kind of a product of that. It’s not a true story. I don’t know anyone who ever got caught doing the naughty in front of a live streaming camera, but there are a few different stories from various stations that I worked at where there was some naughty being done… just not as it is presented in this book!

Screen Shot 2016-01-07 at 9.58.41 PMInterview With Author Olivia Leighton

 What is your book’s genre or category?

The genre is paranormal romance.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

Amy is a riding instructor and hasn’t had a date in a while, not since her ex left her for scrawny stripper. When her horse nearly runs over a handsome billionaire, her life takes a dark and dramatic turn, a turn filled with wolf-shifters and danger at every corner.

Tell us the story behind story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

Well, I have always liked paranormal romances, but always found it a bit strange that the FMC would be so accepting of her boyfriend/lover suddenly revealing that he’s a vampire and or shifter. I don’t know about anyone else, but I would certainly freak out! Because of that, I wanted to write a story that would seem actual… something that could really happen.

Writing Unbroken started as a series, and when I was done with the parts, I compiled them into the novel. It took me about a month and a half for everything to be written and edited before I published. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 3.21.42 PMInterview With Author, J.T. Alblood

Tell us something unexpected about yourself!

In order to keep it realistic, I am trying to write my books by making stories of my memories on reincarnation periods.

What kind of books do you write?

Speculative dark sci-fi, historical mystery and suspense.

What inspired you to write?

I usually write through the inspirations on my previous lives and interesting era-events during my reincarnation process.

What makes your writing stand out from the crowd?

My way of storytelling, and writing fiction is very different than most books. The books are written by using an amorphous method (which was used for the first time in this book along the whole history of literature). This novel tells its own story in each chapter, and when you step away it creates a totally different view. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-12-29 at 12.00.43 AMInterview With Author C. S. Patra

What is your book’s genre or category?

I would say that my book is romance. Rather, it’s more of a rock romance because it’s centered on the band, Ghosts of Burning Inn, and the main characters, Catherine and Ben.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

Basically, the first book of this series follows Catherine’s start into Ghosts of Burning Inn. We also see the first time she meets Ben and falls for him.

Tell us the story behind Ghosts Of Burning Inn. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

I wanted to write a rock romance for a very long time. I’m a huge fan of rock music so it just seemed right. I also really like to write music and this gave me an opportunity to do something different. I also wanted something that wasn’t fantasy, mystery, or paranormal (which is usually what I like).

The story of Ghosts of Burning Inn is a romance story while also following the rise of the band, Ghosts of Burning Inn. Into the Limelight is the first book in the series. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

 

 

DuplicityInterview with Charles Anikpe Author of Duplicity

What is your book’s genre or category? 

Well, since a kid I’ve been a keen reader of thriller novels, I have so much fun writing thriller books and probably my nearest future will see me writing only this genre but I don’t feel to be bond to the thriller genre only. My first self published book Duplicity is something between a thriller and a mystery-suspense, it’s an enticing short read. In my opinion a real page turner. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

 

 

 

We Love ReadersInterview With Murray Lee Eiland Jr. Author of The Ishtar Cup

What is your book’s genre or category?

     I have always liked to read private eye novels. I hesitate to guess how many I read over the years.  Raymond Chandler and his “hard boiled” style is a personal favorite. Of course what was hard boiled then is rather light now! I think that I write novels that harken back at least a little to the 1940’s.  I hope that my books have modern sensibilities about social issues. The Bart Northcote series (set just after the Gulf War) are “cozy mysteries” because they emphasize plot and characters over sex or violence. As a psychiatrist for many years I am fascinated by what motivates people. 

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

     Bart Northcote is a PI in Los Angeles who deals with clients who can pay. In The Ishtar Cup he is taken for a ride by a woman who wants to follow her business associates (partners in a stolen antiquity) to see who she can trust. Bart is well aware that his client is up to something. After one of her business associates is killed he knows something is seriously wrong. Bart breaks the cardinal rule of a PI by getting emotionally involved with the client. He eventually finds out just how dangerous that can be. In future novels he is savvier!  READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE

How would you describe your book “Wrecking Crew”?

Wrecking Crew is my third book, but the first thriller I have written. It was published in 2014 and at the moment it’s available in paperback and on Amazon kindle. The reviews have been very positive; someone described it as being a civilian spy story. I liked that!

Can you briefly describe the storyline for our readers?

When Eric Stone discovers the shocking truth behind his friend’s death, he feels compelled to act. Stone is no stranger to risk, he’s a tough guy who will do whatever it takes to get the job done, but this time he’s walking directly into the sights of the most dangerous adversary he has ever faced. The Wrecking Crew is a powerful and secretive organization that mixes modern technology with old fashioned violence to manipulate businesses and empower Governments. Eric Stone’s friend got in their way and paid with his life, now it’s time for some retribution.
With the help of his feisty girlfriend, and a retired cop, Stone sets out to hunt The Wrecking Crew, but soon he and his friends are dragged into a desperate race for survival, where the enemy can see every move they make and no one can be trusted. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE
