Shattered Dreams (January Dreams Series Book 3) by Carrigan Richards is now available!

~Synopsis~

All Megan Devereux wants is to live her life in the mortal world. But returning, without Casper, has changed everything, including events and times. The worst part is no one believes her story.

Strange things begin to happen. Megan finds a portal to Arvada and Casper. But every time she wakes up, she’s back in the mortal world not knowing how she ended up there.

She soon learns Vincent is in the mortal world with the Nuummite Jewel. The longer they stay in the mortal world though, the harder it is for them to return to Arvada. Now, she must find him so they can return to Arvada and return the mortal world back to normal.

Will Megan start a new life or return to her old one? Is Megan willing to give up everything in order to survive?

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.

Falling in love isn’t the only problem for Ava Hannigan.

When seventeen-year-old Ava discovers that she can breathe underwater, she’s disappointed. She wanted to be normal and dreads the day of her initiation into one of the most powerful covens of Elemental Enchanters. She has fallen in love with a human, which is forbidden, but she has such a strong connection with Peter, the only other person who knows what it’s like to grow up motherless.

Ava and her friends never expected to be caught up in the middle of a three-hundred-year-old war. Devon wants revenge against the humans for killing his master. Xavier, a ruthless witch, is building an army for Devon by spellbinding several students into becoming dark Enchanters. After Xavier realizes Ava and her friends are Elementals, Devon will stop at nothing to have their power.

She knows she can’t live in the past, but she sees no future and is faced with the hardest decision of her life.
