Interview with an Author featuring Alex Raine

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is Alex Raine! Her debut Only Human: Paranormal Academy Romance (Legends Springs Series Book 1) released on October 25th 2022.

How long have you been writing?

A little over a year. It actually started as a dare from one of my author friends. Now, I have the bug.

What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?

I don’t know if it’s interesting or not but I’m very slow, and I can’t follow an outline to save my soul! I have to write as it comes to me or no words hit the page.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

How hard it is to actually make a profitable career out of this. The income vs expenses is crazy different.

What do you hope your readers take away from this book?

Humor. I hope that when they read my characters they laugh. I want my books to brighten someone’s day. I also want people to read it if for nothing else than to give my poor PA Angela someone to talk to about it lol. Bless her, she really needs that. 😉

What gave you that push to press the publish button?

My bestie author E.A. Shanniak. She gave the dare and pushed me to do it.

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

Crazy. Weird. Nerd. And none of those are insulting.

What was the highlight of writing this book?

Coming up with my characters. They pretty much wrote my first book and I’m waiting for them to finish telling me the story for book two.

Are you working on anything at the present you would like to share with me?

I just published my first Vella story from the POV of one of my characters in Only Human. Cosa. I’m also working on Book two Only Blood.

What advice would you give to other authors?

Never give up. Always spring for an editor. Have friends or someone look your work over for errors and while it’s great to take advice, don’t let others change your voice.

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

That even though I don’t produce works extremely fast, know that what I do produce is straight from the heart. My characters are relatable and fun. All I ever ask is to give me and my book a chance.

Thank you Alex Raine for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her debut release, Only Human today!


Welcome to Legend Springs University, the most elite university in the world.

Kimble –
I knew two things growing up: One, that my girls and I would always be BFFs. And two, that we were going to attend the best school in the world together, like we’d always dreamed.

What I didn’t know when I got my acceptance letter from Legend Springs University was that it was actually a school for the magical elite.

What? I don’t even believe in magic, so why have I been accepted to Legend Springs?

Riftyn –

I knew growing up that I was meant to be the next Alpha of the Wintercrest Pack. But my boys and I had always been a pack unto ourselves. As strange as it sounded for a werewolf, a dragon, a vampire, and a demon to be friends, we were. Brothers for life.

At Legend Springs, the girls wanted me for a night, but no one seemed to want to tie themselves to me long term.

But the moment I met Kimble Sawyer, our bond was instant, and everything changed.

Mysterious forces are trying to pull us apart.

How can I hold on to Kimble’s heart and become the Alpha I’m destined to be?
