Please give a warm welcome to New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Eve Langlais

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

Not much to tell, lol. Married with 3 children. My life is pretty boring which might explain the writing, LOL.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

Yes and no. As a teen, I was a voracious reader, and that continued into my twenties. I just didn’t have time to write. Then I became a mom and had even less time. But I finally made myself give it a try in my mid thirties after my husband dared me.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

LOL, which one…My mind runs too fast to keep up sometimes. I have all kinds of ideas, triggered by the silliest of things, and usually starting with the question, “What if…” I am really excited by an upcoming series called Chimera Secrets. A top secret medical facility is making monsters but that doesn’t mean love isn’t in the air 😉 Book one, A Nurse for the Wolfman is coming in June. I also have a spin off to my Bad Boy series, called Killer Moms with Soccer Mom releasing in May.

°

°

What are you working on now?

°

A dystopian romance with hints of paranormal… I won’t be revealing it until Summer for a 2020 release. I do have four books planned for it, maybe more if I fall in love with the world and can’t leave.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I really like to be quiet. No music. No television. Just silence so I can hear the voices.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To write something epic enough it gets made into a cool show or movie on Netflix. LOLOLOL.

°

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

°

The biggest thing is finish the book. Without the book, there is nothing.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

LOVE YOU! LOL. Seriously, readers are the reason I dive into these wild and strange worlds.

Bio

°

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Eve Langlais is a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance. She likes to blame her twisted imagination for her sarcastic sense of humor which tends to heavily influence her stories. She enjoys writing about strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters that need the right woman to temper their wild side–and unleash the lover. She loves to write, and while she might not always know what her mind is going to come up with next, she does promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because she believes in a happily ever after.

Author Serena Nova #interview

Please give a warm welcome to debut author Serena Nova

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

My name is Serena Nova, and I’m 28 years old, have two cats and a boyfriend. I’m Dutch and live in the Netherlands. I’m a creative person that likes to read, write and cuddle her boyfriend and cats. I mostly wear two different coloured socks and I love summer! And I published my first book this year in March.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

No, not really. I just like to talk. I always wanted to be in the publishing business and after a few dips in my life, I decided to start writing and loved it as much as reading that I kept going. That was roughly a year ago.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

I think my crazy brain. The ideas just pop up in there and I just start writing. I also have a lot of nightmares which gave me good ideas too and sleepless nights.

°

What are you working on now?

Currently working on book two in the full blood series and another project that will drop before book 2 in my first series. But it is an undies destroying story. Or in this case my own.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I like to wrap myself in warm clothing and put on my over headphones and ignore the world. But other quirks, not that I know of. Maybe making weird faces while writing?

What are your hopes for the future?

°

That I’m still writing, bringing out new amazing worlds for the readers to disappear in. That’s what books are for me, a place to go on an adventure!

°

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

°

The best advice I have is what another friend and author told me. She said, “not everyone likes chocolate”. Meaning not everyone will like your book. And that is okay, it’s the same that you don’t like every book that you read. And just keep on creating those amazing worlds, keep writing!

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

Mostly just thank you for reading, for enjoying the worlds I put out there and for just being you!

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

Thank you for inviting me today! I’m a full time author of steamy romance, and have been at it for ten years now, ever since I finished a creative writing course with Cardiff University. I still live in Wales and adore it, even though I’m not Welsh these lovely people have adopted me. I’ve been blessed with awards, claimed the #1 spot on Amazon lists numerous times, and hit the USA Today Bestseller list in December 2018. You can find out more about me (and grab a free ebook – HIRED, first in my HOT ICE series) on my website.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

It’s always been in the back of my mind though I had an 18 year career as a nurse first. I loved nursing, and many of my books have a medical slant to them because of my experiences.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

I’m heavily into Vikings at the moment, simple really, I became obsessed with the TV show ‘Vikings’ and it grew from there.

°

What are you working on now?

°

I’m writing a spin-off novel from my popular reverse harem series THE CHALLENGE it’s titled THE BOYS and gives Harry, Evan, Raul, Mason and Lucas a chance to have their say about living in a harem. It’s set five years on from the end of BREAKAWAYS. You can grab book #1 CASTAWAYS for just 99c/99p. The
entire series is on KU.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I need silence. Absolute silence. Even someone else breathing in the house it puts me off. Luckily I have a lot of alone time while Mr H is out at work.

°

What are your hopes for the futur?

°

To be able to keep writing…

°

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

°

Have a go at submitting to anthologies. It’s a great way to hone your skills with shorter stories and introduces you to other authors and readers. This is a great place to find calls for subs – Erotica Readers.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Author Eva Chase #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Eva Chase

°

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

I’m Canadian but have traveled to lots of other countries. I love writing fantasy and paranormal stories because it’s so much fun imagining a world beyond the ordinary one we live in. And I have TONS of ideas, so no matter what I’m working on, I’ve always got a bunch more at various stages begging to be picked next. 🙂

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

I’ve always loved telling stories. It wasn’t until I was in high school that I started getting praise from teachers and friends for my writing, and I realized that maybe I was good enough to make a go of it as a career.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

My current series (the first book, A Study In Seduction, coming at the end of March) started a few years back when I was watching the TV show Elementary. It’s a modern adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes stories, and they had a great twist where (spoilers if you haven’t watched the show) the villain Moriarty turns out to be a woman.

I loved the idea of a female criminal genius–it’s not a type of character I see much at all, even though there are tons of beloved male characters of questionable morality who are admired for their smarts and wit. I’ve been toying with the idea of either writing my own take on a female Moriarty or a different female villain for a while, and this past year, the other pieces finally started coming together.

°

What are you working on now?

°

I’m nearly finished with the second book in the Moriarty’s Men series. I haven’t yet decided whether I’m going to jump right into the third or alternate with another series to switch things up. Like I mentioned above, I have a lot of ideas yammering at me for attention. 😉

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I always write on my laptop. I do most of my other computer activity on my desktop computer (which is where I’m answering this interview right now), but I’ve had a laptop for writing since I was a teenager, and something about sitting down with one gets my head in the right mindset.

I also make up iTunes playlists for most of my books and use the music as inspiration when I’m brainstorming or gearing up to write.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

°

I’d just love to be able to continue making a living from my writing! It really is a dream come true, and I feel incredibly lucky that I’ve been able to tell stories so many readers are enjoying. I’m also looking forward to future travels with my family and sharing all my favorite books with my son as he gets older.

°

°

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

°

I think the best advice I could give right now is to be patient. Take your time studying books you love to figure out what makes a good story. Take the time to get feedback from other people to improve your writing. Watch reader reactions to books and figure out what they’re most interested in seeing. Study the kinds of covers and blurbs that successful books have.

It can feel very urgent when you have a story you’re dying to tell–you want to get it out there ASAP. But you’ll have a much better chance of telling that story effectively and getting it to the most readers if you wait a little and learn the best approaches rather than jumping straight in.

°

Do you have anything to say to your fans?

°

So, so many thank yous! There’s very little in the world that makes me happier than seeing that I’ve made other people happy with my stories. I’m so grateful to every one of you who’s picked up my books and especially those who spread the word about them!

Eva Chase’s Minions of Magic

Author Bella Claire #interview

Please give a warm welcome to debut author Bella Claire

°

°

Tell us a bit about yourself

°

Hi everyone! I’m Bella Claire. I just recently wrote my first reverse harem novel called Safe Haven which is book one in the Born In Hell series. Life is pretty crazy. I have three wild, but amazing kids that definitely know how to keep me on my toes. I work part-time, sometimes full-time, for a psychological center, which can be stressful at times, but also quite interesting depending on who walks in that day. I try to write every chance I get, but get distracted sometimes and could seriously watch Supernatural all day if I could. Oh and food, well food is life besides my family.

°

°

Have you always wanted to be an author?

°

Actually, no. Surprisingly, I didn’t really get into reading until I was about nineteen. I started reading more suspenseful books, then really got into the romance genre. I remember searching my kindle one day and came across the first two books in The Stardust Series by Autumn Reed and Julia Clarke. I had no idea what reverse harem was then, and still didn’t really get it until I joined their group on Facebook. From there I found other groups and reverse harem readers and authors and couldn’t believe what a great community of people I had come across. It was then I decided to write. It took many attempts at writing until one day Safe Haven popped in my head and I just went with it. Sometimes I still can’t believe I accomplished it, but I’m so glad I did!

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

Honestly, I’m not sure. The idea just popped in my head one day and the story just kind of came to me. My next book, which will be a standalone, is influenced from the cover. I fell in love with the cover and then bam, another story to write.

°

°

What are you working on now?

°

Right now I’m working on book two in my Born in Hell series, New Haven, but also writing a standalone that will be called Their Dirty Little Secret.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

Not really, I just need it to be quite. I feel like a lot of authors listen to music while writing, but I just end up jamming out and singing along. If there is anything, even something small that could distract me, my brain turns to mush.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

°

I hope that one day I can be a full time writer and keep putting out books for readers to get lost in and enjoy.

°

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

°

Don’t be scared to ask for help! Without fellow authors and friends, there is absolutely no way that I could have done this on my own. There is always new things to learn and room for growth.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

Thank you all so much for giving my newbie self a chance! It means so much to me and I’m so happy to have each and everyone of you with me along for this journey!

Their Dirty Little Secret

°

°

Blurb

°

Being a shifter is complicated.

Being a dirty little secret is even worse.

For years I’ve tried to blend in with my pack, find my place, but it’s impossible when everything about you screams intruder.

That is until three wolves trespass into our territory. They say they’re searching for something that was stolen from them, something precious and irreplaceable.

But when my pack decides they’ve had enough from our visitors, things go from bad to worse. Unable to keep me hidden from them any longer, the three men soon see what my pack chooses to ignore.

I’m left with two options: stay in a life full of loneliness, or go with them. Will I find my place or will I become someone else’s dirty little secret?

Author Tyranni Thomas #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Tyranni Thomas

°

°

A little about me…

I’m terrible at talking about myself. I’m Tyranni Thomas in the literary world. I started out writing Historical Fiction and now I write High Fantasy Historical RH. I was a history major once upon a time and I’m still kind of obsessed. Vikings and Game of Thrones are my tv fandoms. Their Vampire Queen and Four Psychos are my current RH addictions. I may or may not refer to myself as the Mother of Heathens and Pitbulls. I’m a single mother of three boys and a cancer survivor.

°

°

Have I always wanted to be an author…

I loved to read and write. I wrote short stories as far back as grade school and I wanted to take the creative writing class so bad in high school my mother petitioned for me to take it a year early. (She got me in too!) I was published in a local drug and alcohol program for some poetry I did in that class, but I never thought it possible as a career, back then the indie author world wasn’t as large and accessible as it is today, so I spent a decade or so as a nurse before I took up the pen again.

°

°

My current series is The Crossroads Priestess.

The inspiration for it came from a couple places. My own life seasons the FMC. She has three kids and is stressed to the max with cancer. I’d been there, but in Tara’s case her cancer proves terminal and I wanted a fuck cancer story. So, I took that and mixed in some of the bump in the night type stuff I’d heard over the last decade of working night shift in nursing homes and let my pen do the rest.

°

°

Now that The Crossroads Priestess is out to the ARC team, I’ve been working on Taking the Night, book II of The Krypt Series.

°

Quirks…

No one can read my work until it’s done. I can give snippets, but that’s it. No shoulder surfing at my house!

°

Hopes for the Future:

I’m hoping I can make it to Penned Con in St Louis this year and fit in a Florida trip.

°

Advice for those that are new…

Join lots of Indie groups and don’t be afraid to make friends and ask questions!

°

°

Anything to say to my readers…

I’d like to thank the readers for their awesome support and feedback! The Reverse Harem readers and authors are so supportive. I love the interaction and sense of community that has developed on Facebook.

The Heathen Harem Hideaway

Author Samantha Rose #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Samantha Rose

°

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’m addicted to caffeine, cats, and I swear all the time. I have a toddler who’s a handful, but I love dearly as well as two cats who are very ‘mama’s babies’. My husband is my other half in every sense of the world and has really helped me make this dream a reality. I don’t people or socialize well, I’ve mastered using GIFs and memes to communicate on social media. I have a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice, master’s work in Cybersecurity, crime scene investigation, and forensic psychology, and I was a Correctional Officer before my husband joined the military!

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

°

I never knew what I wanted to be growing up, but I’ve been writing stories for as long as I can remember. I have old composition notebooks and computer files of all of my books I’ve started. I never actually finished a book with the intention of publishing until my book Smoke and Wishes that I finished in September 2018 and released March 1st, 2019.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

°

The Aces was honestly just a plot/collection of characters that just came to me one night when I was half asleep. Best Wishes was the fact paranormal romance has been one of my go-to favorite categories to read for as long as I can remember! High School Clowns & Coffee Grounds was because I wanted to have a contemporary YA series that would be more relatable to teenagers and young adults but still was considered an RH.

°

What are you working on now?

°

Editing for my upcoming releases: Lads & Lattes (High School Clowns & Coffee Grounds book 1) as well as Smoke and Survival (Best Wishes book 2) and writing the second book of my The Aces series, Adversary.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

°

I make the facial expressions my characters make, like if my character is smirking or narrowing their eyes, I’m doing it too!

°

What are your hopes for the future?

°

To be able to continue releasing books that people love! I’m not too concerned with getting reviews or anything, while they are very nice, I write because I love it and I want to share these little pieces of me with the world.

°

°

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

°

It can be hard, some days you’ll doubt yourself and others you’ll feel like ‘hell yes I got this’. Don’t let those bad days, doubts, bad reviews, or negative people bring you down, your work is your art, your creation, and that is beautiful. Get people hyped for your book with a takeover (if you’re writing reverse harem, there is a very large community on Facebook!), teasers, interactive games, your inspiration, or facts about the writing process!

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

°

Thank you so much for all your support through the process and launch of my first book as well as the interaction in the facebook group afterward! I can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on my future books, hope you love them!!

I’m actually working on book two to my Out For Blood Series and editing through the first book to my spin-off series.
