20 Questoins with Scott Clark

1. What made you decide to become an author?

I’ve always had an interest in writing. I think my love of it came in my junior year of high school. One of my teachers, Ms. Saunders, wrote on an essay I turned in that I had a strong command of language. It took quite a few years of not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, dropping out of college, and dead-end jobs before I realized how much I wanted to write for a living.

2. What is the hardest thing about writing for you?

Taking criticism. I get defensive when a beta reader or someone makes suggestions about what does/doesn’t work. I eventually give in, though. I’m working on it.

3. Do you have any routines or superstitions that you go through whenever you write a book – Such as a specific room to write in, certain drink, same pen/pencil every time, specific music or noise? Release a book?

Really, the only thing I can’t have is music with lyrics or a tv going. I get too distracted by what they are saying. I do most of my writing on lunch breaks or at night, when everyone else goes to sleep. No real routine or anything.

4. Who is the one person in the writing profession who has inspired you the most?

I think I’d have to say Stephen King. For one, I would love to make a living writing horror. There are a ridiculous number of movies based on his stories. He is a household name. That would be a dream come true for me.

5. Which character is your favorite? Which character was the hardest to write? Why?

I think my favorite character is probably Vincent in The Anura Incident. I don’t think I’ve really had any difficulties writing any of my characters so far.

6. Would you consider collaborating on a book with anyone else? If so…who?  Who would be your unicorn author to collaborate with?

I would consider it given the right circumstances. If I could write with anyone, it would probably be Phil Rossi, the author of Crescent and Harvey.

7. Who is your favorite author…someone that you will buy their book even without thinking?

Again, I’d have to say Rossi. Well, him and Scott Sigler.

8. What is your best piece of advice for someone who wants to write or publish?

Just do it. If you want to be a writer, just start writing. I joined a few Facebook groups of writers and picked up some good tips there. The more you write, you better you’ll get.

9. If you could ask your readers 1 question and have them all answer…what would it be?

Do I scare you? Or rather, do my stories scare you?

10. What is your writing kryptonite?

The internet. I can be easily distracted.

11. Do you plot out your book or do you write as you go?

I usually come up with a general idea and just start writing. I let it write itself, basically. I also get ideas for the storyline while doing other things and sometimes make short notes, but I don’t really outline or anything.

12. Do you want each book or series to stand on its own or are you building a universe where all the books/series connect with each other?

Both. I want people to be able to pick up any of my books and enjoy them on their own, but I also like to have little things here and there to tie them all together.

13. If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice related to writing what would it be?

Write more. Get serious about it sooner.

14. What is the biggest lesson you learned after you published your first book?

That I need to learn more about marketing my work.

15. What is a guilty pleasure?

I don’t know if it’s exactly a guilty pleasure, but I’ve always really bad enjoyed those terrible, over-the-top, ridiculous horror movies.

16. Do you have a favorite vacation spot?

I love the beach.

17. What’s an Item on your bucket list?

To buy a house out in the country, surrounded by farms and whatnot.

18. Do you have a spirit animal?  If so, what is it?

I suppose it would be a cat of some type. I need to be around people who care about me, but I also need my time to be left alone.

19. What is your favorite holiday & why?

I really like Thanksgiving for the turkey. But my favorite is Halloween. It’s the time when I can indulge in my obsession with zombies and monsters without being looked at as a freak.

20. What’s your favorite Halloween candy?

Anything Reese’s is always a plus.

About Scott Clark 

I’m an author who grew up in central Ohio. I had an aunt who got me into horror at a young (probably too young) age. I would like to be a full-time author, but I would most like to entertain people with something I love to do. I’ve always been kind of obsessed with zombies, even before it was cool.

Robert Lee Johnston 

Robert enjoys writing challenging, villainous characters and subjects. He loves the Australian humour, in good or poor taste, that is born from those places of darkness. It is his belief that the deeper, more painful the situation, the funnier and better Aussies become. 

Australia is a nation of fair fighters, with a proud sense of humour and humility. That combination is unique and rare and continues to inspire and supply him with many characters, brawlers, squealers, pelicans, cowards, galahs, absolute bloody champions and the down- trodden to choose from.

Author Spotlight – Lucy Smoke/Lucinda Dark

 

Rest in Pieces (Barbie: The Vampire Hunter Book 1)

Ashes to Ashes. Dust to Dust. If vampires kill your entire family, vengeance is a must.

I can’t say my parents never warned me about vampires. I just never believed them. Not—that is—until six months ago when vampires broke into my home and killed my family. Thanks to all the skills my parents taught me, I managed to escape but I couldn’t save them.

Two vampires down and the rest of the world to go.

My bid for revenge is going to have to wait, though, because until I turn 18, I’m being placed in the loving care of Elizabeth and Jonathan McKnight—godparents I didn’t even know existed. The clock is ticking until I can get back to my goal of eradicating the vampire race. But something is amiss at my new high school. According to my parents, vampires can’t walk in daylight. So, why then, does Torin Priest? If he’s not a vampire, then what is he? Because unlike the obnoxious asshole, Maverick McKnight, who sees me as some sort of bloodsucking leech on his wealthy family, Torin Priest is most certainly not human.

To stake or not to stake, that is the question.


 

NerysIG

DAIMON (Nerys Newblood Book 1)

In the darkness of Nerys Newblood’s mind, there is an ancient voice.

Obidian is a spirit guide, thousands of years old, and Nerys is his new host making her his Daimon. The only issue is that in Nerys’ Kingdom, Daimons are outlawed. To be found out as a Daimon, a human with untapped magical power, will surely sentence her to death.

Pursued by a vengeful king and thrust into a journey of escape, Nerys finds the lives of five incredible men in her hands.

A talented druid.
A curious changeling.
A thief.
An outcast.
A best friend.

All potentials drawn in by the untapped power within her.

But when betrayal shatters the budding relationship between them, the last vestiges of hope for freedom are destroyed. Between the wrath of the king and the ailment of her spirit guide, someone must pay an ultimate price.
***This book is a reverse harem title***


 

 

In the pitted depths of despair, a flame burns ever eternal – a Daimon’s strength to do what she must.

Nerys is determined to rescue Coen. She and her potentials make the treacherous journey back to the place where it all began. Matric’s Kingdom—Euron. But what lies in wait is something much deadlier than the recently deceased king.

A new darkness has escaped its confines, ready to reign and wreak havoc.

Torture.
Pain.
Loss.

The world begins to unravel and with it, the Gods’ plan for Nerys is revealed. Though it may mean the destruction of her own life, Nerys will be the weapon to end the coming war.


 

FFtCBookImage3

Fortune Favors the Cruel (Dark Maji Book 1)

Throne of Glass meets Black Jewels in this twisted yet alluring dark fantasy tale.

Quinn Darkova, freed from the chains of slavery, wants nothing more than vengeance against those who sold her. But with her dark powers on the rise and her ascension nearing, Quinn’s blood retribution will have to wait in favor of her immediate survival.

Lazarus Fierté is a nobleman without equal. He’s as controlling as he is stubborn, and for the last six years he’s been waiting for a woman to appear—but not just any woman. A Maji of great power, capable of terrible things. She could be the key to everything he holds dear.

His savior … or his destroyer.

The only thing he didn’t predict was that she would become both.

*Please note, this is a dark fantasy series. There is a heavy romance subplot between two consenting adults but the material is dark in nature. The characters are not heroes. This isn’t a story about saving the day. If you’re looking for a series that’s romance dressed up as fantasy, this is NOT it. If you’re looking for Game of Thrones level of fantasy, this will have too much romance for you. If you want a dark fantasy about characters that are antiheroes on their best days and the villains on their worst…this is for you.*

20 Questions with Lucy Smoke/Lucinda Dark

 

 

  • What made you decide to become an author?

 

I’ve literally wanted to be an author since I was a child. When I figured out that acting would probably be a really hard to get into, I decided to be “safe” and go for being an author. HAHAHAHAHA BOY DID I NOT THINK THAT THROUGH. 

 

  • What is the hardest thing about writing for you?

 

I don’t know if I have something that’s “hard” to write about per se. I have one book (that’s non PNR/UF) that is partially based on real experiences (though I would argue that it’s completely fiction) and I guess putting so much of myself into a character/storyline isn’t hard, but it takes a lot out of me and it is a much longer process. 

 

  • Do you have any routines or superstitions that you go through whenever you write a book – Such as a specific room to write in, certain drink, same pen/pencil every time, specific music or noise? Release a book?

 

Not really. Each book and each character is different. While I do have a general writing playlist, I do end up creating playlists specifically for each series/book. I also switch back and forth between pantsing the hell out of a book and outlining to the nines. I’m really all over the place as a writer. One thing I’ve done in the past, though, that a lot of people don’t do is that I’ve outlined on my bathroom mirror with dry erase markers. 

 

  • Who is the one person in the writing profession who has inspired you the most?

 

That’s an incredibly difficult answer and I’m sure I’m not the only person that will say I can’t choose. There are so many people who have inspired me. There’s not really one that’s gone above others. Although, I would say that author Jex Lane is the one that (unintentionally) inspired me to self-publish. She writes UF/Fantasy M/M. I was lucky enough recently to meet her in person and I could not be more grateful to call someone as amazing and down to Earth a friend. She’s truly a wonderful person. 

 

  • Which character is your favorite? Which character was the hardest to write? Why?

 

I’m torn between favorite characters—my favorite character changes based on what I’m focusing on writing. Right now? My favorite character is Barbie Steele from my upcoming series Barbie: the Vampire Hunter (yes, it’s exactly what you’re thinking). She’s sarcastic. She’s kind of a bitch. And I just love stabbing her because she’s always got some witty retort to throw my way. 

As for the “hardest” character to write. Like I said before, Idk if it’s “hard” so much as it’s draining. But that would be Love from my dark angsty contemporary, Expressionate. And the reason is because I wrote Love’s story when I was a sophomore in undergrad at the height of my depression. The following year I finally decided to seek therapy for my depression (where I was later diagnosed), but writing her story really made me see myself in an objective manner. I saw a lot of unhealthy coping mechanisms and I shaped her as I once saw myself when I rewrote it years later. I gave her the happy ending I always wanted. 

 

  • Would you consider collaborating on a book with anyone else? If so…who?  Who would be your unicorn author to collaborate with?

 

I would and have! Lol. I have a coauthored series with Kel Carpenter that’s dark high fantasy. The Dark Maji series. I’m also working on an RH Urban Fantasy series with Carysa Locke. But if I were to choose someone else… I’m not really sure. I still suffer from imposter syndrome, so anyone I’d choose would be someone that probably doesn’t even know I exist lol. 

 

  • Who is your favorite author…someone that you will buy their book even without thinking?

 

I don’t necessarily have a favorite author, but I do have a few authors that I one-click without even reading the blurb. I love Lexi Blake and Lynsay Sands. Both write a combination of urban fantasy/PNR and contemporary. And both have great sexy times. 😉 😉 

 

  • What is your best piece of advice for someone who wants to write or publish?

 

Oh gosh, I’ve got a mixture of stuff I’m sure any hopeful writer/author has already heard and probably doesn’t want to hear again (but I promise, it’s the best piece of advice you could possibly follow). 

  • Finish your book. Whatever it is. Just finish it. Even if it sucks. 
  • Ignore what everyone else tells you (by that I mean, ignore what they say you SHOULD do with your book and focus on what YOU want to write). 
  • Have a plan. (I literally wish I had actually planned my releases. I wish I’d done more research) 

 

  • If you could ask your readers 1 question and have them all answer…what would it be?

 

Hmmmmm. Okay, this is hard. Maybe … it’d be … “What about my books or any books in general makes you want to keep reading them?” 

 

  • What is your writing kryptonite?

 

Darkness. Even in my brightest series, there’s always a hint of darkness. Every once in a while I’ll get the urge to write a light fluffy romance, but when I try it out, I end up inserting something that’s not quite as fluffy as people expected it to be. I love sarcasm and witty characters, but I also like torturing them. Oh and I love characters that are different. Some of my MCs/FMCs are similar. But I think across the board, they’re also quite different. Some are youthful and naïve, some are hardened and tough, some are wild and free, and some are reserved and unsure. I like showcasing the differences in people. 

 

  • Do you plot out your book or do you write as you go?

 

I flip back and forth. For Heart of Tartarus, my dystopian RH, I outlined book 1 to the nines and followed it almost exactly. But for many of my other books, the outline gets thrown out halfway through. Sometimes, I only outline 5 chapters ahead at a time. 

 

 

  • Do you want each book or series to stand on its own or are you building a universe where all the books/series connect with each other?

 

Neither? I’m not sure. I’m not planning on having all of my series connecting to each other. But I’m also not…NOT planning that, you know? #awardforvaguestanswergoesto 

 

  • If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice related to writing what would it be?

 

Start earlier. Publish sooner. PLEASE for the love of GOD plan ahead. Don’t rush.

 

  • What is the biggest lesson you learned after you published your first book?

 

Ironically, the biggest lesson I’ve learned after I published my first book doesn’t necessarily have to do with writing. It has to do with the industry. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to take everything in stride. There will be reviewers who hurt your feelings, readers, other authors, even family members who misunderstand you. I’ve gotten really angry at people and I’ve felt resentment for others. But others success has no bearing on my own. And vice versa.  

 

  • What is a guilty pleasure?

 

Erotic romance. *hides* I write romance. I even write sex, but I find it really hard to write romance that’s primarily about sexual aspects. I have to write a longer, more detailed plot (even if it makes me want to yank my hair out and scream). But every once in a while, I just want to sit down with a filthy book and pilfer through it and ignore the world. Whoever ends up marrying me is really in for a surprise bc as soon as I get married, I’ll be sending them screen shots of my favorite scenes and demanding we reenact them. LMFAO (okay probably not, but a girl can dream, can’t she?)

 

  • Do you have a favorite vacation spot?

 

Not yet. Let me finish traveling the world and I’ll get back to you ;-P

 

  • What’s an Item on your bucket list?

 

Get a trad deal? Have a book made into a (decent) movie? Those would be amazing. 

 

  • Do you have a spirit animal?  If so, what is it?

 

My spirit animal is Edna Mode from Disney’s The Incredibles. XDDD I don’t know, probably not her. She’s far too confident to be me. I’m incredibly random and weird. I’m also insecure as hell. #Storytime A lot of people watch my Instagram stories and at the last signing I went to, people would come up to me and tell me they loved watching me and they enjoyed my books and whereas a normal person would say “Thank you, I’m glad” my response was “Why?” Just think of the most awkward turtle in the ocean and that’s probably my spirit animal. 

 

  • What is your favorite holiday & why?

 

Other than my birthday, because let’s be real, it’s totally a holiday—HALLOWEEN. If Halloween could last all year, that’d be amazing. When I got to a writer’s retreat next year for Halloween, I’m going to wear a different costume every day for a week. 

 

  • What’s your favorite Halloween candy?

 

Alright. No one judge me. If we’re talking candy SPECIFIC to Halloween (and not like chocolate or something like that…) I love candy corn. It’s delicious sugary goodness #cannotchangemymind

Author Spotlight – Quinn Slater

26820

20 Questions with Quinn Slater

  1. What made you decide to become an author? 

I needed to escape my mistakes in life. It allowed me freedom to experience the things I wanted to experience. I needed that outlet.

  1. What is the hardest thing about writing for you? 

Confidence. I really am my own worst critic. I have dozens of stories that have not been finished because I lack the confidence to do so, or I have written myself into a corner and I’m not sure how to get out.

  1. Do you have any routines or superstitions that you go through whenever you write a book – Such as a specific room to write in, certain drink, same pen/pencil every time, specific music or noise? Release a book? 

When I release a book I like to going hiking and get away from everything. Just be alone and enjoy the peace and quiet.

  1. Who is the one person in the writing profession who has inspired you the most? 

Probably my mentor in graduate school when I was working on my MFA. He famously told our class that I was the only student in class who could make two people fuck for three pages. We all got a great laugh. He has no idea I write under a pan name. He also called me out in class one day, saying, “Learn to use a fucking comma!”. He was awesome.

  1. Which character is your favorite? Which character was the hardest to write? Why?

Probably Quin Slater (yes, a character named after my pen name) because he’s a guy that has experienced a number of people walking out on him in his life. People seem to overlook his damaged soul. I feel like I relate to him and his struggles.

  1. Would you consider collaborating on a book with anyone else? If so…who?  Who would be your unicorn author to collaborate with?

If really depends on genre, since I write in several. Literary- Jonathan trooper, Horror-Robert McCammon, Thriller-Jonathan Kellerman

  1. Who is your favorite author…someone that you will buy their book even without thinking? 

Jonathan Trooper

  1. What is your best piece of advice for someone who wants to write or publish?

Patience and thick skin. You have to understand that, like so many other parts of life, there are bad people in the business and they are more than willing to take advantage of you. Educate yourself on the business.

  1. If you could ask your readers 1 question and have them all answer…what would it be? 

That’s a tough one. Maybe what they thought of my female characters?

  1. What is your writing kryptonite? 

Stresses in life. I have certain people close to me that can shut down my mood to write in only a couple of words. It’s too bad because they are close to me and there’s no way to rid myself of them

  1. Do you plot out your book or do you write as you go? 

Write as I go. I’v tried plotting it but I enjoy the discovery too much.

  1. Do you want each book or series to stand on its own or are you building a universe where all the books/series connect with each other? 

This is a huge issue for me. I have so many different things in my head that I have trouble writing a series.

  1. If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice related to writing what would it be? 

Honestly, writing was more important than the people who interfere with the writing.

  1. What is the biggest lesson you learned after you published your first book?

No one believes in your dream more than you do. I thought family and friends would be all over my books. That wasn’t the case. And the more I published the less friendly some people became.

  1. What is a guilty pleasure? 

I’d love to do the things in my books.

  1. Do you have a favorite vacation spot? 

Hawaii was beautiful. I could live out the rest of my life there.

  1. What’s an Item on your bucket list? 

Visit Iceland. I’d also like to visit all the places I’ve read about in books.

  1. Do you have a spirit animal?  If so, what is it? 

An Eagle. I’d love to have the power of flight and fly free through the skies

  1. What is your favorite holiday & why? 

Christmas because I love to give.

  1. What’s your favorite Halloween candy?  

Wax lips J, although I’m not sure they make them anymore.

Sophie may have been born an ordinary girl, but her soul was as old as the dawn of time. She was an angel, and she alongside her twin flame, Incaendiel, held the key to bringing all of the fallen angels safely back to the light.

However, evil lurks where least expected, and the Jealous God of the Old Testament has waged a war against those who are seeking the light. Love, power, and vanity come together as we see the showdown between angel and fallen angel, God and Goddess, in arms fighting against one another. In the end, will love conquer and banish the evil God of Creation and return the light back to those that fell out of duty and love for their angelic family?

The Wastelands of OZ – Return to Oz Book 1

By Isobel Ingram    

        Somewhere…down a wrong road…under the sea…across the desert…by earthquake, tornado, hurricane, and magick… exists the Land of Oz. But it’s not the same land you loved and dreamed of. A new and more powerful evil than that of the wicked witches has taken over Oz by the name of the Red Sorceress. Oz is in shambles, a barren wasteland. Dorothy is sick with stomach cancer, so it is up to her daughter, Maryjane, to help bring Oz back to life. Maryjane isn’t your average teenager in Kansas. She was blessed by the Elders of Oz with magickal powers as a thanks for the help her mother offered while living there. Glinda’s son, Charlie, and Maryjane are the heirs to the throne of Oz, while the Red Sorceress intends to steal it away for her and her apprentice. Maryjane and Charlie have battled for years over their feelings for each other and have grappled with the idea of punishment, for Maryjane is a mortal from the human world, and it is forbidden. However, the only way to defeat this new monster of evil is together, and they alone share the hidden powers to bring Oz back to life and return the wastelands back into the voluptuous land it once was.

20 Questions with Kasey Hill

  1. What made you decide to become an author?

I have always had the love to write. We started writing stories in first grade and it always stuck with me. Then after my son was born, I wanted to write stories for them to read.

 

  1.  What is the hardest thing about writing for you?

Finding the time to be able to do it. I am a full time mom to three young children (8, 6, and 2.) By the time I actually have time to sit and write anymore, I am exhausted. So, I try to write early in the morning or late at night when everyone has went to sleep.

 

  1.  Do you have any routines or superstitions that you go through whenever you write a book – Such as a specific room to write in, certain drink, same pen/pencil every time, specific music or noise? Release a book?

 I have no routines really lol I write with anything on TV. Right now, I am writing on my ghost book with Disney’s Brave playing on TV lol

 

  1.  Who is the one person in the writing profession who has inspired you the most?

 Becky Mushko is the first Indie author I have met. When I was in high school, we studied her in our creative writing class and she even came by. She was the one who made me see that I could one day be a writer.

 

  1.  Which character is your favorite? Which character was the hardest to write? Why?

 My favorite character would have to be Maryjane in The Wastelands of Oz. You could see the clear character development I had with her from beginning to end. The hardest to write was Isobel from The Haunting at Foxwood Village. I had to make her seem crazy but not crazy at the same time, which made me feel crazy lol

 

  1. Would you consider collaborating on a book with anyone else? If so…who?  Who would be your unicorn author to collaborate with?

 I have had this chance before twice and never again will I ever collaborate an actual piece of fiction with someone again. Both of the authors I wrote with I am no longer a friend of. Therefore, the pieces was pulled. Both of the books were my ideas. One of the books could actually go along with The Haunting at Foxwood Village. But, it is what it is.

 

  1. Who is your favorite author…someone that you will buy their book even without thinking?

 Sharyn McCrumb! I absolutely love her historical fiction books about the south.

 

  1. What is your best piece of advice for someone who wants to write or publish?

 Study the market prior to publishing. Mark trends and make sure that you have a marketing strategy planned. Build a fan base prior to releasing a book. Have fun! Don’t let it become a job!

 

  1. If you could ask your readers 1 question and have them all answer…what would it be?

 Backstreet Boys or NSYNC

 

  1. What is your writing kryptonite?

 Time. I feel as if I never have time to d what I need to get done in a scene lol

 

  1. Do you plot out your book or do you write as you go?

 I write by the seat of my pants lol

 

  1. Do you want each book or series to stand on its own or are you building a universe where all the books/series connect with each other?

 Actually, I plan to somehow create a universe with my books

 

  1. If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice related to writing what would it be?

 Finish the book you started

 

  1. What is the biggest lesson you learned after you published your first book?

 Takeovers in events are pointless for sales

Sweet Agony by Christy Pastore – Antonette’s Review

Christy Pastore has quickly become an automatic one-click author for me. She never fails to entertain with her wonderfully written words and allows me to get lost in the worlds she creates.

Sweet Agony is one of those stories. It’s a beautiful story that gave me all the feels. Brant was the epitome of a swoon-worthy southern gentleman. And Caroline was a smart, determined and witty woman who was as kind as she was beautiful. The angst and chemistry between the two of them was so …. I don’t even have words to describe it. You’ll just have to read it for yourself to understand what I mean.

I definitely recommend this book and I look forward to what’s to come as well as reading Christy’s other stories.

The Billionaire Book Club by Max Monroe – Antonette’s Review

✩✩✩✩✩⁣⁣

Every book reader has that one book where they wish so hard that they could jump into the pages and live the life that was written. Max Monroe never fails to make me want to do that very thing. They perfected the formula of a fun and romantic story that you want to be part of, with characters who you can’t forget. And this story is yet another story I wanna live in.

Caplin and Ruby. These two characters were full of excitement and intrigue. They were fun and funny and I couldn’t help but get sucked into their vortex. Together they were dynamic but equally as strong on their own. However, when they were together… fireworks burst from the pages. Read it and tell me I’m wrong!! I dare you!

I love the world created by Max Monroe and having old favorites make their appearances. There’s never a shortage of laughter. So far, this is my favorite of the newer Billionaire series – I connected with the characters more with this book. With that being said, I have yet to dislike a book by this amazing duo of authors.

I highly recommend this story and look forward to everything coming our way from Max Monroe.
