Interview with an Author Featuring J.R. Walden

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is J.R. Walden! Her co-authored debut novelRose Bound: The Rose and King series Book 1 released on February 14th.

Congrats on your newest release! Tell me a bit about your book?

This co-authored book is a mix of crime and supernatural. You get to take a journey of self discovery with a damaged vampire prince to learn who murdered his parents and how he played a role in it. Mob bosses and wolf fighting. Lust and love. I think this book has a bit of it all. 

Where do you draw inspiration from?

I READ! And watch tv show. If I can visualize but verbalize I draw the scene or character.

Have you always wanted to be a writer?

I started writing when I was very very young. I’ve always loved it!

What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

Early on Twilight and Harry Potter we’re big influences. But I’d say I began writing before I had even discover my love of reading.

If your book was to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it?

Oh Lordy. Ian (Damon from VD) would have to be someone! Hmm I’d say Chris Hemsworth would be an amazing Ollie! Voice and all. For Gavin I envision someone like Christian Grey from the movies. 

What is the best part of your day?

Whenever I get a pic of someone who has enjoyed our book baby! It’s always a highlight.

If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?

Artistic, shy, animal lover

What are you reading now?

I’m currently listening to The Bone Witch. I’m enjoying it so far!

What advice would you give to other authors?

Keep going! Don’t let your doubts or reservations keep your words from the page. I almost did.

What is the one thing you want people to know about you and your books?

My books come from my heart. Every character and every scene is felt and thought over countless times. I want my readers to feel with the characters. To me, that’s good writing. 

Thank you J.R. Walden for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, Rose Bound today!

~Synopsis~

Ousted for being a human sympathizer, Prince Gavin has found himself in the belly of the Underground, a world where ghouls rule and werewolves fight to the death.

After learning of his parent’s murder, Gavin is called upon to endure the Rose Bound ceremony and claim his covens throne with a wife.

Forces are rallying against him, some closer to home than he anticipates. Finding a murderer, leading a coup and himself, proves to be a journey that will change his kingdom forever.

But, when Gavin’s soulmate goes missing, none of that matters. Nothing will stand in his way to find her, not even his own demons.

Wolves, fae, vampires and witches are only a few of J.R.’s favorite things. She also enjoys riding horses, beach trips, and spending time with her husband and fur babies.

Catching up with D.C. Gambel

Catching up with D.C Gambel! Her latest story, Huntress and the Splintered Court: An Urban Fantasy Shifter Romance (The World of the Hunter Order Book 2) went live this week.

Congrats on your newest release!

Tell us more about your about your newest release!

This is the conclusion to my Beauty and the Beast retelling. I don’t want to give too much away, especially if you’ve not read book one, but the rebellion spills into the Hunter Order leaving Isabel with a difficult decision.  

What did you enjoy most about writing it?

This is a story that’s been on my mind for years and I just hadn’t had time to get down. So I enjoyed finally removing it from the space it occupied. It’s freeing…freeing up space for other ideas. 

What did you hate most?

How short it is. I hadn’t planned on it being a series but there was just too much to tell.

What can readers expect from this book?

Steam, betrayal, and a surprising twist. 

What’s next for you?

I am finishing up my Horsemen Chronicles then I’d like to start a new series about a demonic FBI agent.

Thank you D.C. Gambel for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, Huntress and the Splintered Court: An Urban Fantasy Shifter Romance (The World of the Hunter Order Book 2) today!

~Synopsis~

Is she a Beauty or the Beast?

Isabel knows her place in the world and falling for a werewolf was never a part of her plan, but the universe doesn’t care about her plan. With her mind and heart at war, she is more confused than ever over what her destiny truly is.

As the alpha, Gideon isn’t use to hearing the word no, so falling for the smart mouthed huntress, who tests him at every turn, is more than he bargained for, and yet he’ll risk death itself to keep her.

As a rebellion brews within the preternatural community, Isabel must decide. Take her rightful place in the Order to which she was born? Or stand at Gideon’s side to become the next Luna of the Thorn Court?

Huntress and the Splintered Court, is book two in The World of the Hunter Order. Book one, Huntress and the Thorn Court, is currently published in the USA Today Bestselling Boxset, Once Upon Another World. If you enjoy enemies-to-lover romances, filled with conflict and steam, then you’ll love this Urban Fantasy twist on the classic Beauty and the Beast.

~Synopsis~

What happens at the Thorn Court stays at the Thorn Court.

Isabel is not your average princess. All she wants to do is keep peace among the preternatural community, but when she mistakenly kills an innocent werewolf, the cost of peace may be a steeper price than she’s willing to pay.

Gideon is a beast of a man. As the pack alpha he has to be. When an opportunity practically lands in his lap, he’s driven to seize it, even if it means taking Isabel, a princess of The Order, as his prisoner.

When attraction blooms, Isabel has no choice but to resist the sexy alpha. If she doesn’t, her very future at the order could be in jeopardy.

Huntress and the Thorn Court, originally published in the USA Today Bestselling Boxset, Once Upon Another World, is book one in The World of the Hunter Order. If you enjoy enemies-to-lover romances, filled with conflict and steam, then you’ll love this Urban Fantasy twist on the classic Beauty and the Beast.

D.C. Gambel is a mother, army wife, and a hopeless romantic. Romance has always been her genre of choice whether it’s contemporary, historical, paranormal, or even pushing towards erotica in both reading and writing. When she first decided to try her hand at writing, romance was the obvious choice. Getting lost in a different world, living unimaginable lives is something she strives for even if it’s just a temporary enjoyment.


Interview with an Author Featuring Kim Alexander

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is Kim Alexander! Best selling author of the New World Magic and The Demon Door series.

Hi Kim! Tell us a bit about yourself.

Okay! I’m originally from Long Island NY, but I spent my growin’ up years in Fort Lauderdale, back when it was the center of the world for hot trash during Spring Break. I went to the University of Miami and majored in Communications, which qualified me for a job at Radio Shack. Instead, I went to work at a bunch of radio stations up and down the Florida Keys, and I finally settled in Key West, where, according to the police report, I had a great time. After that it was off to Washington D.C. where I do not work for the Feds (neither do any of my friends–D.C. is a real city with real people!) I worked at Sirius XM Radio for many years, helping to program Book Radio, where my only job was to read books and interview authors, and go to places like Comic Con. Did I like my job? <sob> it was okay...All good things came to an end with a generous severance package, and for the last seven years I’ve been writing full time. I live across the street from the National Zoo– I can see into the Children’s Zoo from my window, and we can hear the lions and monkeys! I have a fabulous husband, two weirdo cats, and despite <flails around at, well, everything> life is pretty good. (I sure wish the zoo would reopen, though.)

Have you always wanted to be a writer?

Yes, I began writing stories about animals when I was just six or seven. It never occurred to me it could be an actual job until fairly recently.

What time of the day do you usually write?

Because I am desperately lazy, I wake up late and usually write from noon to four or five. I find diminishing returns after that, and usually have to do a lot of repairs. And even though it doesn’t involve sitting at my desk, I do a TON of work while I’m waiting to fall asleep. Something about that relaxed state allows dialogue to flow, and I just do my best to remember it the next day. Pages I write in my head at night are almost always the best parts of my books.

How much ‘world building’ takes place before you start writing?

Oh, you mean the all important staring-out-the-window phase? A lot. But I find that I learn so much once the actual writing has begun, and I start to ask the interesting ‘what if’ questions, which you really don’t know until you learn more about the characters. I guess that makes me a world building pantser?

Which of your books were the most enjoyable to write?

I had just completed my epic fantasy series The Demon Door, which ran four books and something like 455,000 words. It had over 40 named characters, two vastly different worlds, and two timelines (NOTE: DO NOT DO THIS.) My follow up was Pure, a first person, contemporary, fast paced paranormal romance, which felt like a cool drink of 35,000 word water. Of course, the follow ups to Pure keep getting longer–I can’t help myself!

Who is the author you most admire in your genre?

Too many to name, and I’ve gotten to meet and interview so many of them. But I have to mention Peter Beagle (see question 7!) I was working at Wonder Con in San Francisco waaaay back in 2011, doing my author interviews. To my amazement and delight I managed to score a few minutes with Peter. Five minutes before our meeting, I got a call that my mom, who had been quite ill, was going into hospice. I was on the opposite coast and there was no way to get a flight, so I stayed. I told him what happened (because I was obviously distraught) and he put his hand over mine and told me she knew I would be there soon. I have so much love for him, not only for his immense talent, but his kindness.

Favorite book when you were a kid.

Funnily enough, it was The Last Unicorn. I’ve said elsewhere I have the copy I got when I was a kid, from like 1968. It’s utterly in tatters but I pretty much have it memorized. This book (along with the tapestry of The Unicorn in Captivity) became the inspiration for Pure.

What is the one thing you want people to know about you and your books?

That they are all reasonably priced and available now! Also I did the narration for Pure and The March Effect, and I’m very proud of them. And when I say I would love to hear from you (YOU!) about my books, other books, cats, food, gardening, etc, etc, I am not kidding. Let’s chat!

Thank you Kim Alexander for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her books today!

~Synopsis~

‘A unicorn walks into a bar….’
That is not a joke.
Look, I’m a bartender, I have nothing to do with the xenos. I don’t care if it’s an elf or a vampire–as long as they don’t bother me, I steer clear. I have my reasons–you can see them in the scars on my neck.
I never wanted to get involved. But my life changed for the second time when I saved the life of a unicorn. I made an enemy of something old–old and evil, and whatever it was, it’ll be back for another try. I also made a friend when I decided to help March. He’s only been a human man for a day. I’m responsible for him now. He’s my friend…and maybe something more. Maybe a lot more.
It doesn’t matter to me that he isn’t magical anymore. I don’t care if he’s not PURE.
But he does.
From best-selling author Kim Alexander, a modern fairy tale of magic, love, and redemption.

Kim Alexander grew up in the wilds of Long Island, NY and slowly drifted south until she reached Key West. After spending ten rum-soaked years as a DJ in the Keys, she moved to Washington DC, where she lives with two cats, an angry fish, and her extremely patient husband who tells her she needs to write at least ten more books if she intends to retire in Thailand, so thank you for your patronage.

Right from the start, you’re thrown into one heck of an adventure! Time travel, enough said.

Interview with an Author Featuring Rebecca L. Garcia

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is Rebecca L. Garcia! Her newest release, The Fate of Crowns released on January 5th 2020.

What inspired you to start writing?

I’ve always loved reading since I was a little girl, so I always felt a calling to books. I never thought I’d write one, however, until 2014 when I was working in a phone store and I felt like I wasn’t really happy with my career. I had a story in my head and wanted to get it down. So I did.

What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?

I’m not sure I have one (I’m a little disappointed in myself). I guess the only thing I do that * could* be considered quirky is sometimes I say the sentences aloud as I’m writing them.

How do you deal with emotional impact of a book (on yourself) as you are writing the story.

I probably have a weird reaction, but I usually end up smiling, knowing that if I could feel that much emotion from a scene, then those reading my book could feel the same. If it’s a really strong scene and it hurts my heart then I will step away for a while, have a cup of tea, and feel those feels.

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

Under Rebecca L. Garcia, I’ve published two and a half (the half being a novella), and am currently writing The Court of Secrets and a secret project releasing in September. I think I loved The Princess of Nothing the most.

What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

When I first started writing, J. K. Rowling was a huge inspiration to me, but in recent years it’s been all the indie authors who’ve succeeded and worked hard and shown me that we can do it! I feel inspired by all of them and by reading their books, it has of course influenced my writing. I try harder. I read more. The more I read, the better writer I become 😊

Do you hear from your readers much? What do they say?

I do and I love talking to them. Some of them just like discussing certain characters or scenes from my books and those conversations are my favorite. I enjoy talking about the world I created and get all gushy when they’re just as excited as me! Some have messaged me telling me how their books helped them through a tough period or quotes they related too which is really warming to hear.

What book is currently on your bedside table?

The Queen of Nothing.

Do you have any new series planned?

I have a new release coming this September. The title and cover haven’t been released yet but I am in love with this world. It’s very different to my current series, but still falls under the YA Fantasy genre.

If your book was to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it?

I actually posted a recent casting to who I’d want for each character. I’d love for Kaya Scodelario to play Winter and Wade Poezyn to play Blaise.

What advice would you give to other authors?

It’s age old advice, I’m sure, but simply it is to keep writing. Every book you write is more and more practice. Don’t get so stuck on the details of publishing so much that you forget to write the damn book.

What is the one thing you want people to know about you and your books?

I also enjoy writing the darker side of things. Whether it is really flawed characters or complex villains. I love getting in their heads and understanding the gray area between simply good and bad. I like to look through the lenses of the morally gray.

 

Thank you Rebecca L. Garcia for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, The Fate of Crowns today!

~Synopsis~

With my brother’s death came the crown and all the trappings that accompany it. Now, my father–the most dangerous man in Magaelor–seeks to control my future.

But fate has other plans.

Thrown into mer-filled waters, I’m dragged into the rival kingdom of Berovia. Surrounded by those who murdered my brother and wished my entire family dead, I must find my way back to my kingdom. There, a marriage could bring peace to a century’s old division between the fae and sorcerers. But dark revelations and deadly lies threaten to destroy my destiny.

I must make the choice between my duty, family, and truth before it’s too late.

Will I allow myself to become the Queen of everything? Or be reduced to a cautionary tale as the princess of nothing?

The Fate of Crowns is a fast-paced YA epic fantasy about a sheltered princess who travels between magical kingdoms, discovering a world vastly different to what she’d been led to believe.

Get book one now. The anticipated sequel releases February 2nd 2021.

Rebecca lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her husband and son. Originally from England, you can find her drinking tea, writing new worlds, and designing covers. She writes young adult fantasy. She devoured every book she was given and fell in love with magical worlds, and when she got older, her imagination grew with her. She implements royalty into her books because she adores historical monarchies.

When she’s not writing or spending time with her family, you can find her traveling, and hosting book signings with Spellbinding Events.

The Fate of Crowns, Book one, releases January 5th 2021 with the following four books releasing between February and June.

Spoils of the Dead (Liam Campbell Book 5) by Dana Stabenow – My Review

Title: Spoils of the Dead (Liam Campbell Book 5)

Author: Dana Stabenow

Release Date: February 4th 2021

Genre: Police Procedures

Newenham is an ice-bound bush town with a six-bed jail, a busted ATM and a saloon that does double-duty as a courtroom. It’s a wide-enough patch to warrant a state police presence, though, and Trooper Liam Campbell is it. Campbell has been exiled from Anchorage to Newenham in disgrace, busted down from sergeant to trooper in the aftermath of a mistake that cost a family of five their lives, to spend some time in the wilderness. Campbell didn’t expect the job to be simple and it hasn’t. From the (literally) cutthroat business of commercial fishing, to the paranoid misanthropy of the back-country prospector, to drug dealers, serial killers, and caches of forgotten war gold, he has had his hands full. Now he has a dead archaeologist, murdered at their own dig site, who claimed to be on the verge of a momentous discovery. Fans of the icy frontier, of mystery tinged with a frisson of romance, of laconic lawmen with good intentions, of tai chi and small aircraft piloting take note: Liam Campbell is for you.

A murder mystery set in Alaska? Yes! 

This book is number five in the Liam Campbell series. I didn’t feel like I was missing too much by not having read the others. The story is well written. Plenty of descriptive scenes. I could picture the beautiful landscape in my head. The story is good, however I had a hard time getting into it. It didn’t engage me very much. Like something was missing. It seemed like it was being told in a monotone voice the whole way through. The highlight of the book was Sybilla Karlsen. She’s a delight! The rest of the characters weren’t as delightful. It seemed like Liam couldn’t be bothered by anything. Maybe it had something to do with something that happened in the prior books. The ending was interesting. I will say that. 

As a whole, this book is a good read. I did struggle a bit to get through the story. The pacing is fine and the story is well written. My issues with the book hasn’t turned me off from reading other books by her. This one didn’t do it for me unfortunately. My suggestion is to check out this book and make up your own mind. I give this 3 stars.

Interview with an Author Featuring Carrigan Richards

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is Carrigan Richards! Her newest release, January Dreams (January Dreams Series Book 1) released on January 25th 2021.

How long have you been writing?

I started writing when I was 10.

Describe a typical writing day.

Wake up late…lounge around…finally get to my computer or notebook and start writing. Write until the wee hours of the morning.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

Life – everything and everywhere. Books, movies, music…

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

 I love all my characters honestly – even the bad guys. I love how strong they are, yet how much they grow through all they’ve experienced. They all make mistakes which is human, and I love how real they are.

How do you deal with the emotional impact of a book (on yourself) as you are writing the story?

When writing Pieces of Me and another contemporary, both made me cry. They deal with such deep and dark issues, but they are issues that people deal with on a daily basis. After writing both books, I have to step away and focus on something much lighter. Sometimes I listen to music or watch TV or watch a bunch of puppy videos.

What book is currently on your bedside table?

Nicholas Sparks’ The Return

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

 I keep reading what’s out there. What’s new…what’s exciting. Sometimes I’ll go into my vault of old ideas that could still be used. Each book is different in the series, as they face new problems, but the overall problem is still there.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Loyal, determined, kind.

What advice would you give to other authors?

Never give up! If writing is something you love, keep writing no matter what. It isn’t easy, but nothing worth having is easy.

What is the one thing you want people to know about you and your books?

That my books are meant to be fun, yet somewhat educational. I want them to know that while life is hard and frustrating, there are good things in life.

 

Thank you Carrigan Richards for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, January Dreams today!

~Synopsis~

Love is the last thing on seventeen-year-old Megan Devereux’s mind. The only thing she wants to focus on is continuing her good grades to get a scholarship so she can leave her stressful home.

She starts having dreams of sharing an intensely, visceral love with Casper Truitt. But in real life, she hates Casper. She wants nothing to do with him, but that doesn’t stop him from suddenly paying attention to her, claiming he likes her.

When Megan meets the brooding and handsome Vincent, they start dating and quickly fall in love. But each time they kiss, she sees vivid visions of another time and place.

Consumed by the dreams and visions, Megan’s determined to learn the truth about them, but the more she learns, the more her life is in danger.


Carrigan is the author of Pieces of Me, a young adult contemporary romance, and the Elemental Enchanters Series, a young adult paranormal romance. She was born in Cullman, Alabama, but grew up in Birmingham, and moved to Atlanta at 18. She earned her BA in English at Kennesaw State University. For as long as she can remember, she was always making up stories and characters inside her head, sometimes using her dolls to act out the scenes.

When she’s not writing (which is rare), she’s spending time with her family and friends, listening to music, playing with her two furbabies, or cheering on her Atlanta Braves.

If I Disappear by Eliza Jane Brazier – My Review

NEW RELEASE

Title: If I Disappear

Author: Eliza Jane Brazier

Release Date: January 26th 2021

Genre: Psychological Thrillers

“Blending the true crime compulsion of Michelle McNamara’s I’ll Be Gone in the Dark with the immersive creepy-craziness of Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects, Brazier creates a heady, pitch-dark cocktail all her own.”
Publishers Weekly

“This twisted and riveting thriller is one that will keep you up late at night with suspense.”
—CNN

A Most Anticipated Book of 2021 by CNN • E! Online • Buzzfeed • New York Post • Popsugar • Crime Reads • Hello Giggles

When her favorite true crime podcast host goes missing, an adrift young woman sets out to investigate and plunges headfirst into the wild backcountry of Northern California and her own dangerous obsession.

Sera loves true crime podcasts. They give her a sense of control in a world where women just like her disappear daily. She’s sure they are preparing her for something. So when Rachel, her favorite podcast host, goes missing, Sera knows it’s time to act. Rachel has always taught her to trust her instincts.

Sera follows the clues hidden in the episodes to an isolated ranch outside Rachel’s small hometown to begin her search. She’s convinced her investigation will make Rachel so proud. But the more Sera digs into this unfamiliar world, the more off things start to feel. Because Rachel is not the first woman to vanish from the ranch, and she won’t be the last…

Rachel did try to warn her.

I love me a good psychological thriller. The twisty, the better.

Right off the bat, this books gave me some dark haunting vibes. Excellent. It also felt like I was jumping into a story that had already started. No matter, on we go. Sera is on a mission. Her favorite true crime podcaster Rachel has disappeared. Sera knows she’s the only one who can find her. What happened to Rachel?

Ah I had such high hopes for this book. It started out pretty good. Some questionable characters. Check. The haunting vibe. Check. Trust no one vibe. Check. The pacing is slow. I started to feel like the story was going no where. By the time the ending came, I really didn’t care who did what. I struggled to connect with Sera. The twists fell flat as did the ending. 

All in all, this was an okay read. It wasn’t for me but others may enjoy it and I encourage you to read it and make up your own mind. Despite my issues with the book, I will not let it deter me from checking out the author’s next book. I give this 2 stars.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion*


Updates From Me

Hello everyone. I wanted to hop on and give you an update.

If you’ve noticed there hasn’t been many posts. I lost my father recently and very unexpectedly and it has turned my whole world upside down. The past two weeks have been a struggle to focus on anything but my grief. I couldn’t even escape into a book and that’s always been my safety. 

Interview with an Author will be back next week. I put it on hold for two weeks but I have some more amazing authors coming your way.

Book Buddies is still happening. We finished two books out of four. Stay tuned for those updates. We think you’ll enjoy our thoughts.

Reviews will be coming. I received some really awesome book mail. I am actively sharing them on my Instagram and now on TikTok. I am still trying to figure out that new platform. Maybe I should start sharing them here too……

Guest blogging may be happening as well.

That is all the updates I have for now. Thank you for taking time to read this or any of my posts. I appreciate you.

My Valentine: Siren #2 by Jaimie Roberts – My Review

Title: My Valentine: Siren #2

Author: Jaimie Roberts

Release Date: February 1st 2018

Genre: Erotic Suspense

Roses are red, violets are blue.
You’ve sent me to Hell.
Now you must join me, too.

Obsession is a word that’s followed me since the day I met her. I’m not too ashamed to admit it flows through my veins. I, of all people, realise how dangerous that can be.

I may have escaped, but no matter how much I run, she’s there, reminding me of what I did…what I miss. Even in death, she haunts me. If losing her wasn’t enough, I constantly have to live with her inside my head during the day, in my dreams at night.

She’s punishing me. It’s what she does best. Even gone, her claws sink deep into my skin.

I thought it was over.
I was wrong.
It seems Scarlet’s not quite done with me yet.

Warning: There are scenes – as in the previous book, Siren – which may trigger those sensitive to sexual abuse.

Please note: Book Two in the Siren series is not a standalone. Reading Siren beforehand will definitely enhance your reading experience of My Valentine.

Unputdownable! Dark and devious!

A sequel to Siren? YES PLEASE! From the start I was pulled into the story. I was intrigued and couldn’t read fast enough. The pacing is good. The author slowly builds suspense and will have you on the edge of your seat. Let’s talk about those hot scenes. Like forbidden fruit. You’re not supposed to like it but you do anyway. Not sorry! As the plot unfolds, my suspicions are proven right and that ending…..WOW!! I am not disappointed. 

This book isn’t for everyone because of the content. I truly enjoyed it. I am a huge fan of the author’s writing and storytelling. I know I’m in for a great read when I grab a Jaimie Roberts book. If you like dark and taboo, this book and Siren is for YOU! Add this to you TBR. I give this 5 stars.
