Author Interview with Alex Flyn

bannerkingofcups

I’m hosting an interview today with Alex Flyn, author of contemporary romance novella “King of Cups.”

1) Please tell us about yourself.

My name is Anastasia, but I chose to publish my first books under the pen name of Alex Flyn.

I live in Russia and I love travelling, I’ve been to several countries in Europe and Asia, as well as the US and Canada, and those were such amazing experiences I’m hoping to turn them into stories as well one day.

In June I’m turning 26. I love cats, television shows and, of course, reading and writing.
I love the Harry Potter series, it was my inspiration to become a writer, and currently I’m reading A Song of Ice and Fire saga. I also enjoy short stories and fan fiction.

2) Tell us about your book.

It’s a story of romance with a little dash of sports. I know it seems like it’s going to be all sports, but the story is actually about a couple that has to overcome several obstacles on their way to theoretical happiness. It so happens that one of them is a football (soccer) player, and there are some twists to how their story develops and their backstory is quite interesting as well.

3) What inspired you to write King of Cups?

The passion and intrigue of the world of football (soccer). I love this game and it can be so emotional sometimes, that I was really inspired by the way it affected people’s lives.
It’s a beautiful game and I wanted to show how real life can affect professional players as well. They’re people too and you can’t forget that. They eat, they sleep, they want to have fun, and they can fall in love too.

4) How many hours do you write per week?

Depends on how much time I have off, because naturally, I have a full-time job. 10-15 hours a week on average, I guess. I set up different goals, but in reality have to alter them to suit my schedule.

5) If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?

J.K. Rowling, Stephen King and George R.R. Martin. All for different reasons.

 6) What are you working on at the moment?

Parts two and three of King Of Cups, which will be called “The Second Half” and “Extra Time” respectively and together all three will make a complete novella.
I’ve been working on a series of fantasy/new adult novels for eight years now, they were my first attempt at writing and only recently I was able to figure out exactly how to tie all loose ends, so I’m all ready to have this done.

Author Interview with J.W. Baccaro

crossingforbiddenlines

I’m interviewing J.W. Baccaro, author of coming-of-age fantasy novel “Crossing Forbidden Lines”.

1)         Please tell us about yourself.

My favorite subject in school was Creative Writing.  It was also the one subject I did excellent on.  As for family life, I have a beautiful Wife and a beautiful nine month old Son.  Oh, and lots of animals.

I like waking up early on weekends. Usually around 3:00A.M. I make my coffee, turn on the computer, and at my own pace…write away! I can never find the strength to write after work, my mind is usually worn from other projects going on in my life. But I do write on my lunch breaks.

Writing the Guardian Series started in November of 2000, and through the years it has undergone many twists, turns and changes that I was not expecting—but I’m sure that is common in any author’s project. Still, the ending result is wild once you step away and think about it all, what you originally created, what you altered, progressed, and what you never thought would come about—and yet somehow your mind gave birth to it. I gather one could call it the “Wow Factor.” All right, I admit, that was a little cheesy. *laughs*

The original inspiration for my series came as soon as I finished J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic “Return of the King,” I felt lonely. In other words, I missed Frodo, Gandalf, Samwise, Strider, etc. The fact that I missed them so much made me realize how awesome it is getting sucked into a world of Epicness! I decided I wanted to create my own adventure, and so…the Guardian Series began, and the journey was a long one before its completion.

2)         Tell us about your book.

The Elemental Crystals were originally created to protect the earth. However, Abaddon the Demon Lord plans to use them to transform the earth into a realm of haunting darkness and witchery, forever.

In Guiding The Blue Flame, a young but powerful Nasharin Warrior, Darshun Luthais is drawn to one of these magical crystals of immense power. He learns he’s the fulfillment of the two thousand year old Prophecy of the Guardian. The Wizard Olchemy informs him that he is the protector and guardian the earth has been waiting for.

With Darshun’s ability to sense the Elemental Crystals, Olchemy devises a plan to obtain them. Accompanied by a small group of companions the hunt is on, in hopes to retrieve the long lost crystals before the Demon Lord claims them.

During the journey, Darshun encounters Aurora, the sole survivor of a now extinct people. He falls in love for the first time, and now resents the so-called Guardian of the Prophecy role.

Due to Darshun’s naïve spirit he’s caught off guard by Nayland, a mysterious dark warrior who confronts him about his abandonment of the quest. He reveals that he too, is a Nasharin warrior, though far exceeding Darshun in skill and power. Darshun’s father, Mirabel saves him from death at the hands of Nayland.

Outmatched and in bewilderment from the attack, a fire awakens in Darshun. He plans on reaching his father’s level of power with a journey to Shajin Island, where Nasharin Warriors train. He’ll be gone for only one day in Earth realm time, but due to the magic of the rigorous island, it will be seven long years for him. Entering the mystical realm of Shajin, he eagerly awaits its life threatening challenges.

In Crossing Forbidden Lines, Darshun faces a solemn heartbreaking betrayal by the woman he loves and is left dying from a hideous torture inflicted by the Queen’s guards. He is healed by a female Elf, Kelarin who he calls his angel.

Feeling his power to be tripled, he battles Queen Talvenya’s son and slays him. Thus, earning the Queen’s undying vow of revenge. Afterward, he faces the Demon Lord in a fierce battle which nearly kills him once again. After a mysterious Elder nurses him back to health, he returns to his father, Mirabel to help defeat the massive army of the Demon Lord.

When the Wizard Olchemy re-surfaces alive and brings his powerful red dragon, along with Darshun’s new Elfin family— they all prepare for a fierce battle in The Coming Of The Light.

The group defeats the Dark King’s Army and Darshun finally faces Queen Talvenya in a final battle.

In Sons Of Fire, the sides of Dark and Light take their places for the Day of Darkness. Minevara, Darshun’s sister faces the Vampire Queen and must save Nayland’s life by battling him to the death. Kelarin, Darshun’s love is kidnapped to be the Demon Lord’s blood sacrifice.

After being bested by The Guardian, Darshun…Queen Talvenya comes to join the Light as King Loreus discovers he may be the ‘One’ chosen to carry the Sword of Purity. This sword has been foretold to have the power to unite all the races of the Earth Realm. Kaylis joins them both for a journey to the dreaded Centaur kingdom. Darshun gathers many for the upcoming battles they all will have to face.

In Piercing The Darkness, all things may come to an end…Will the Earth Realm finally be destroyed? Can the races of the earth come together to defeat the Demon Lord? How many will die in this battle of Light Piercing the Darkness?

3)         What inspired you to write Crossing Forbidden Lines?

Crossing Forbidden Lines is book two in the Guardian Series. In this particular book Darshun learns of his blood heritage. There is a fleshing out of the villains, and we get to see Darshun’s true powers at work during the battles—especially the ending. However, we also see the consequences of Darshun’s faulty actions. His ego is ten miles wide and he believes whole-heartedly that he can destroy the antagonist without the aid of the Elemental Crystals or the help from his friends and family. What takes place is an unfortunate (but necessary) tragedy. Don’t worry, it has a happy ending. J

 

4)         How much time per week do you spend writing / editing your work?

 

Early mornings and if I’m at work, I write on my lunch breaks. I write the story, tweak it, and go over it again and again. Once I’m satisfied with my version I send it to my editor.

5)         If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?

Akira Toriyama, Joey W Hill and J.R.R. Tolkien—but I gather I’d have to have an out of body experience to meet Mr. Tolkien. J

6)         What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently working on an Erotica Fantasy. It is actually related to my Guardian Series, but the story takes place half a century later and is a standalone novel. There are so many elements in it. It’s not simply an erotica. Of course there is romance, though in a dark sort of manner. There are many concepts in relation to life; it’s philosophical, mystical and one heck of a wild ride. Not as much action as my Guardian Series but the mystical elements and erotica make up for that. I’m hoping it will be finished and on the market by October 2014.

Author Interview with Jes Young

uncoveringbanner

I’m interviewing Jes Young, author of paranormal romance “The Uncovering”. This book sounds amazing, and I absolutely love the cover, so I’m pleased to have Jes on my blog today.

Please tell us about yourself.

Me? I’m just your average full time working, book writing, kid wrangling, dog walking, cupcake loving mother of two. Recently my boyfriend called me to a sneaky ninja recently, which I liked. I may have some business cards printer up. You know like “Jes Young, Writer & Sneaky Ninja”

(But seriously, why is this is the hardest question in the world to answer?)

Tell us about your book.

This is so much easier! My book, in a nutshell, is about a woman who discovers that she is an Elvish princess and the key to ending a centuries old war between the Light and Dark elves. It’s part adventure, part romance, and part coming of age story. Also, there are some pretty funny parts too.

What inspired you to write The Uncovering?

I was working on something much heavier and darker about a pair of sisters who hate each other and it was depressing the life out of me. Both characters were jerks in their own way and I was tired of them. Then one night I was reading the Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris and it occurred to me that Ms. Harris probably had fun when she was writing. Her characters were fun. Her books were fun. I wanted to have fun too. And so Tab was born. And mostly, it’s been really fun getting to know her.

How much time per week do you spend writing/editing?

On average, I’d say I write about 20 hours per week. That said, I have two children (ages 5 & 8) and a dog so schedules are subject to wild variation or complete cancellation without notice. Some weeks I write a lot and some weeks I’m happy to have gotten one coherent paragraph on the page.

If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?

Definitely Walt Whitman. Through Leaves of Grass I’ve gotten this picture of him as a person who loved people and being alive in all its messy, delicious complexity. He strikes me as someone with whom one could get fantastically drunk, eat a rich meal, and talk about sex all night. There’s something very appealing to me about people who live passionately. I’d also like to meet EL James, author of the 50 Shades of Grey books, so I could rub her belly or kiss her nose or whatever one would have to do to get some of her good luck to rub off on me. And Alice Walker so I could thank her for writing The Color Purple.

What are you working on at the moment?

In addition to the final book in the Twilight & Dawn series, I’m also kicking around ideas for what to do next. I do that by writing short (very short) stories and seeing which one feels like it’s got the most story behind it.

 

The Uncovering

TheUncovering smallerTitle: The Uncovering

Author: Jes Young

Genre: Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy

“Tab Bennett is normal — unusually, excessively normal. Her job as a bank teller is safe and secure, her grandfather finally let her move out of the house (at least to the cottage at the end of the driveway), and her fiancé fiercely guards her chastity, whether she wants him to or not.

It’s something of a shock, then, when Tab learns that she is the elvish queen of the fabled kingdom of the Inbetween. Also shocking is the appearance of the staggeringly confident and gorgeous elvish warrior who claims to be Tab’s true betrothed. Even amidst a steamy love triangle, Tab must tell friend from foe in an unknown world of danger, deceit, magic, and sex.

The first in the Underneath and Inbetween trilogy, The Uncovering sparkles with wit and unadulterated fun.”

Author Bio

Jes Young Author PhotoJes Young holds a BFA in creative writing from Emerson College.  She writes Urban Fantasy and Paranormal romance because, in spite of a complete lack of supporting evidence, Jes still believes in fairy tales, happy endings, and true love.

A fresh voice in the Fantasy genre, Joel Babbitt’s story of Durik the kobold and his companions is genuine, triumphant, and absorbing. In two days and two square miles of caverns, Joel takes the reader deep into the heart of a tribe in turmoil. Looming insurrection, insurgent pacts, ancient powers, noble designs, and young aspirations combine to make the unforgettable coming-of-age tale of Durik the kobold and his companions.

With their year of training now past, Durik and six other young warriors are about to undergo the Trials of Caste where all of them will strive for the coveted position of elite warrior and the prestige and power that comes with it, though only one will win. Simultaneously, a deadly conspiracy threatens to destroy their tribal leaders and seize the throne for its own evil purposes. Durik and his six companions must each chose sides as the actions of an insurgent pact bring a day of decision for all the children of Kale.

Book Review Catcher’s Keeper

CATCHER'S KEEPER - 2500Title: Catcher’s Keeper

Author: Johannah Davies Spero

Genre: Commercial Fiction / Alternate History Fiction

What if Holden Caulfield was around when John Lennon was shot?

In 1980 John Lennon was killed by Mark David Chapman, who believed he was Holden Caulfield, narrator of the classic The Catcher in the Rye. After the shooting, Chapman remained on the scene calmly reading the book, which he later offered to police as “his statement.” Catcher’s Keeper asks the question, “What if Holden had met Chapman, learned of his plan, and tried to prevent the assassination?”

 When I started reading, I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy this book. The premise seemed intriguing, but the first chapter didn’t convince me. However, I kept on reading, and I found myself enjoying the book more and more as I got to know the characters, especially main character, Alden.

It’s no surprise that this book ended up being one of the finalists in a competition – the writing is solid, the characters are rounded, three-dimensional, flawed, intriguing, and the plot puts an original spin on a familiar story. Combining a real-life event and a fictional story ended up offering a unique perspective, and worked really well.

Book Excerpt from The Taming

tamingbanner

I’m hosting a snippet today from a middle grade book that sounds like a blast, “The Taming”.

Book Excerpt

Plumpkin froze as he struggled for breath. Unable to take his eyes off the scene before him, he watched as the snake struck again and again, making mincemeat out of the bulky animal. It was a scene that would surely haunt him for the rest of his life. Slitherers just don’t attack raccoons without reason. Something wasn’t right. This was no ordinary attack—more so, this was no ordinary slitherer!

The Taming

tamingcoverJPGLargeTitle: The Taming

Author: Atticus Krum

Genre: Middle Grade

A forbidden journey. A secret agenda. A mysterious object.

When Thutter McClutter, a young Glade-dwelling shrew, willingly decides to break the ancient Code and cross into the shadowy darkness of the great Woode, he is certain that seeing the mysterious Solkreat is the goal. But as he and his friends near the curious Creature, an altogether different agenda is exposed. One of his fellow adventurers wants the magic hogseye. However, the powerful and wicked Beastmonger also covets the enchanted object, and he will stop at nothing to get it—not even murder.

A story of true friendship, lasting faith, and willing sacrifice, The Taming is the first installment of the Refuge Chronicles—an adventurous trilogy about a young shrew, his newly-discovered purpose, and the ancient conflict between Light and Darkness.

Author Bio

Krum2Atticus  never intended on becoming a writer; however, he eventually would come to realize that Magic’s stories were meant to be shared. He now spends most of his time putting pen to paper readying the tales he’s collected for publishing. Mr. Krum resides on a small farm in the Midwest with Albi, his albino ferret. He travels only when absolutely necessary. He does not care to be photographed and almost never smiles. What’s more, he dresses almost exclusively in black. He says that the latter is for simplicity sake, but those who know him are certain that he is just color blind. To learn more about Atticus, please visit his website: www.atticuskrum.com.
