Interview with an Author featuring Nicola Rose

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is Nicola Rose! Her latest release, Arrested: A Salvation Society Novel released today.

How long have you been writing?

I made a few half-hearted attempts at writing stories as a child. Then, when I was in my early twenties, I put a lot of effort into writing an epic adventure set in Ancient Egypt. But life happened and it was put aside. It wasn’t until I was on maternity leave with my first child in 2009 when I picked it back up.

However, I was soon sent spinning on an entirely new project after binge-reading the Twilight books! I’d always loved vampires (thank you, The Lost Boys) and I suddenly had a burning urge to write a steamy vampire love triangle (as did we all, haha!) I wrote about 90% of the first draft of Taste the Dark before letting the fear get to me and once again putting the book aside, focusing on my photography business instead.

Fast forward around four years to sitting at home with my second child and realizing what a waste it was to have written so much of a book and not at least try to publish it.

I haven’t looked back since and have just released my eighth book.

The vampire love triangle became a published trilogy (The Elwood Legacy). And I fully intend to return to that Egyptian mythology idea at some point, converting it into a new fantasy world.

Describe a typical writing day.

Procrastination. Procrastination. Procrastination.

I wish I was joking! I’m seriously bad at staying focused, but I’m trying to get better! All of my writing happens during the day when the kids are at school. It generally involves short bursts of writing followed by frequent distractions such as marketing work, TikTok, and household chores! Oh, and plenty of cups of tea!

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

Everywhere. Nowhere. Some magical place that spawns them and then leaves me wondering how on earth I came up with it! 

Twisted Ginni was entirely inspired by the cover – I purchased the premade cover without any story idea and then came up with the plot afterwards. And I’m currently sitting on several other covers waiting for stories – so I guess that’s my method for the foreseeable!

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

Gahhh, don’t make me choose!!

I’ll have to go with the Elwood brothers. They were the first characters I wrote and fell in love with. They re-ignited my passion to write. They’re everything my vampire-loving heart dreamed of – dark and dominant anti-heroes who kill for food, and sometimes for fun, and would burn down the world for their woman.

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

I guess I just let the emotion take me. I go with it and pour it onto the page. My frequent procrastination breaks soon help me recover from anything too heavy!

Are you on social media and can your readers interact with you?

I LOVE interacting with readers, I wish more would do it! Unfortunately, reaching readers on social media can feel like a massive uphill battle with no results. I do have a Facebook group and Instagram, but my real social media success came list year with the discovery of TikTok. Booktok is amazing!

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

For my readers, I try to throw out the twists and turns. I love those scenes that come out of nowhere and surprise people. For myself, I must admit, it can be a struggle when shiny new characters are calling to me! So those twists keep me going, too. It can reignite a stagnant writing day when some amazing new thing about a character comes to me! 

I also think that my writing improves with every book I release, so there’s that too!

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

Yes! I’ve always been very loose with my plotting, but I find that means I write slowly so I’m determined to plot the hell out of my next book! I’m currently plotting a Fae fantasy reverse harem and I’m SO excited about it. We’re talking brooding fae warriors, a delicious, wicked prince, and some epic adventure (plus, you know, all the spice with numerous men 😊

What advice would you give to other authors?

Write, write, write! Seems obvious, but sometimes the fear that it’s not good enough or that you don’t know where it’s going can stop you from writing. Don’t let that happen. You can’t fix a blank page. So just throw it down and new ideas will come to you as you go.

Also, be sure to connect with plenty of other authors, particularly the author groups on Facebook. Never stop being eager to learn and grow. There’s always so much out there to help if you just go looking.

Oh, and people absolutely DO judge a book by its cover. Get that right straight away!

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

To be warned that most of my books get pretty dark in places, and very explicit! Often the steam and darkness go together (blood, rough play etc). My passion is writing men who are dark, violent anti-heroes and villains, with all the angst and tension. 

That said, my latest release (Arrested) is my first contemporary romance, and whilst there are certainly some explicit moments, it’s nowhere near as dark as some of my other books. You bet your ass I still wrote a dominant alpha male though!

 

Thank you Nicola Rose for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, Arrested today!

~Synopsis~

Grace

10 years ago, Kane Walker stole my heart.
One night of passion and emotional revelations was all it took. All of my pain and turmoil shared with someone who actually understood. Or so I thought. The degrading video that he broadcast to the world the next day proved otherwise.
But if I want closure, I’m going to have to face him again. And this time it won’t be me on knees — it’ll be him.

Kane

10 years ago, Grace Clemente ran away with my heart.
Grabbed it and took off without so much as a backward glance. I could have followed the same downward spiral of my life into complete destruction, but I chose to fix my mistakes.
If I’m ever lucky enough that she returns, she won’t find the deadbeat she expects. She’ll find the town sheriff. And maybe this time I won’t let her go— even if it means locking her up.

Nicola Rose is from the UK, where she lives with her husband and two boys. When she’s not writing or reading, she can probably be found on family days out hiking and mountain-biking in the countryside, messing in Photoshop, and playing board games in her pjs!

Interview with an Author featuring Laura M. Baird

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is Laura M. Baird! Her newest release, Only You for the Holidays: A Christmas Romance released on December 13th 2021.

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing my current genre, romance, since 1995. I wrote off and on for many years while raising my family then returning to college for dental hygiene. It wasn’t until around 2014/2015 that I began to write more seriously and worked toward publishing.

Describe a typical writing day.

My schedule varies depending on other commitments (as I help with my mom and share my office with our son who’s working remotely). Typically I’ll try to get in a morning walk/workout, shower, eat, address emails, scan social media, address any promo/tasks, determine what’s for dinner, spend time with hubby, then write in the late afternoon and into the evening. I like to have my office to myself when I’m writing.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

Inspiration truly comes from everywhere! Life experiences of mine, family, or friends; a news article or current event; a what-if situation; a writing challenge; even an experience I imagine myself having.

One of the faster stories I wrote was book one of my Shifter Clans series, writing it in two weeks. An anthology call came from my publisher, Evernight, looking for stories about Alpha male shifters and strong females who weren’t going to just roll over for them. An idea instantly came to mind about a Native American hawk shifter and a former analyst with the government. My heroine suffered an injury, losing part of a limb, but it didn’t stop her from living life to the fullest. My hero wasn’t intimidated by her, and she found she could let down her guard with him. While my story wasn’t chosen for the anthology, Evernight wanted to publish it separately. So I added to the story which took another week. With secondary characters continuing to talk to me, three more books resulted.

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

My immediate thought is to say no, because I enjoy every story I write. However, I really loved writing my character, Michelle, from Kiss Me at Sunset. She’s 50, widowed; a counselor who is caught off-guard by her attraction to Xander (52), a bouncer/musician. Michelle doesn’t let age define her. The story was fun and spicy with two mature characters who knew exactly what they wanted and weren’t afraid to grab onto it.

When you’re writing an emotionally draining (or sexy, or sad, etc) scene, how do you get in the mood?

I truly immerse myself into the scene, imagining myself as that character; wondering how I’d feel, what I’d say and do. Scenes play out like movie in my head as I describe what’s happening, trying to make it flow seamlessly. Sometimes challenging scenes can take several days and rewrites, to get it right! If I’m stuck, I’ll walk away and let it stew for a while before I return to it.

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

Optimist, pleaser, tenacious

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

I try to keep stories fresh with little twists, the unexpected, even role-reversals. I give characters their own challenges and let them determine how they’re going to work their way through choices.

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

My current work-in-progress is a vampire novella, the Mardi Gras Masked Ball series. It’s a shared world, where five authors are writing about characters revolving around Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Only recently have I been writing more paranormal stories, and I’m very much enjoying. My vampire character, Trevor, was orphaned in France in the 1600s. He aligned with others who disguised their true evil nature and he was turned without consent. Afterwards, he withdrew from life, from self-pleasures, as if he had to repent for the rest of his life. He spent his time trying to right the wrongs in the world, becoming a philanthropist. His love interest (his mate) awakens his dormant senses and shows him there is no denying their connection, their desires.

What advice would you give to other authors?

While I still feel like an emerging author, making a name for myself, there are times when imposter syndrome is real. I have to continue to tell myself to keep doing what I love. Write what I love, what I feel passion for. I’ve said, my writing may not be for everyone, but it’s for someone. And that’s the beauty with the romance genre; there are endless varieties and choices, that someone out there is going to connect with my stories.

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

I’d like readers to know the true joy I have in creating something others will enjoy. It’s scary and thrilling at the same time. The thought that I can take the reader away for an hour or two by making them smile, laugh, sigh, even tear up is humbling and rewarding.

 

Thank you Laura M. Baird for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, Only You for the Holidays today!

~Synopsis~

She made excuses to stay away.

He’ll give her a reason to remain.

Piper Deacon had a spotless flying record while serving in the Army until a careless mishap from her flight partner had her questioning her own skills and responsibility. Foolish pride kept her away from home for too long; the one place she should’ve known she could always return to no matter what. When circumstances force her back to Idaho, she’ll have to face life-altering decisions which include whether or not to succumb to the match-making devices of her mother and co-conspirator friend. With the appealing lawman, Logan Shaw, in her path, will she realize the easy choice right in front of her is all she’ll ever need?

Logan Shaw didn’t always walk the straight line, but service in the Marines gave him a better direction. After twenty-one years away, he’s settling back home, working with the Sheriff’s Department, and wondering if he has a future that’ll include a woman to love. Thanks to the machinations of his mom and her friend, he’s already halfway there with a woman he has yet to meet. And when he does, can he convince Piper you really can come home again?

I’m living life in the Pacific Northwest, enjoying family and the chance to make my author career soar. A veteran and semi-retired dental hygienist; a wife, mother, and grandmother; I’ve traversed the country from the East Coast to the West, sprinkling tidbits of my journey into my writing. I also write about adventures I may not otherwise experience myself. My goal is to provide laughter and swoon-worthy moments, as well as captivating stories in which the reader can either find their own adventure or escape.

I enjoy engaging with readers and authors, and love the encouragement and support not only among the romance community, but the entire writing community. With many ways to follow me, I invite you along on the journey. See my website for choices.

Interview with an Author Featuring Charissa Weaks

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is Charissa Weaks! Her newest release, The Witch Collector (Witch Walk Book 1) released on November 2nd 2021.

Congrats on your new release! How has the new release been going for you?

It’s going amazingly, honestly. Readers have been so wonderful, which is extremely motivating.

How long have you been writing?

Since I was a kid. Back then I mostly wrote poems and song lyrics. I didn’t tackle novel writing until about 12 years ago.

Describe a typical writing day.

A typical writing day would be waking up, getting coffee, sitting down with my laptop (and my doggies), and trying for the rest of the day to draft or edit a complete chapter. If the story is hot and my fingers are flying, I can work for 12-14 hours and knock out two chapters. I tend to put in long days in the editing phase.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

 I wish I had a better answer for this, but the truth is that stories just come to me. It can be due to a museum exhibit or an image I saw or a dream I had, but most of the time, stories just land in my mind out of nowhere. I usually get titles first, though not always. Then the characters arrive. There’s typically one voice that stands out and decides to tell me the tale. I just have to tune in and listen. Music inspires me once I have a story started and helps me stay in the story’s mood.

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

Hmmm. That’s a great question. I really wanted to provide an escape, one of those stories you just fall into, the kind that makes you forget for a little while. I would also hope they take away a little of Raina’s resilience and heart and a touch of Alexus’s vulnerability. He was honest with Raina about his darkness. She looked beyond his past and mistakes and saw the goodness in the man that he’d become.

What is the significance of the title?

The Witch Collector stands for Alexus (the hero), of course, but more importantly, it stands for the biggest obstacle Raina has to face in the story. There’s a terrible villain and an enchanted wood, yes, but Raina has suffered such devastating loss and been irrevocably changed by it–which makes Alexus territory that scares her. It would be easier to avoid anything she’s feeling for the Witch Collector than to chance that kind of pain again.

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

Persistent, hard-working, compassionate.

What was the highlight of writing this book?

The highlight was when I realized The Witch Collector couldn’t be a novella and the publisher said that was okay. I’d been trying to force this big story into limited page space (the three books originally sold as novellas). But they needed to be novels. Getting the Go Ahead from the publisher was a great day.

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

I have a lot of things in the pipeline. I’m working on City of Ruin, book two in The Witch Walker Trilogy, of course. I also have two other fantasy tales I’m toying with and a historical fantasy that I hope to query to literary agents next year. It’s a Count of Monte Cristo retelling set in 1901 Marseille and…beyond.

What advice would you give to other authors?

I’m not big on giving advice because most of it isn’t universal. Every author journey truly is different. I would simply say—believe in yourself, trust your intuition, and accept rejection.

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

About Me: I LOVE chatting with readers on social media. I want to talk about Alexus and Raina and BOOKS in general. Hit me up!

About my books: There will always be a fantasy/magick element, romance, and strong atmosphere. I love a setting and story that makes me feel immersed, so I try to write that type of book.

 

Thank you Charissa Weaks for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, The Witch Collector today!

~Synopsis~

Every harvest moon, the Witch Collector rides into our valley and leads one of us to the home of the immortal Frost King, to remain forever.

Today is that day—Collecting Day.

But he will not come for me. I, Raina Bloodgood, have lived in this village for twenty-four years, and for all that time he has passed me by.

His mistake.

Raina Bloodgood has one desire: kill the Frost King and the Witch Collector who stole her sister. On Collecting Day, she means to exact murderous revenge, but a more sinister threat sets fire to her world. Rising from the ashes is the Collector, Alexus Thibault, the man she vowed to slay and the only person who can help save her sister.

Thrust into an age-old story of ice, fire, and ancient gods, Raina must abandon vengeance and aid the Witch Collector or let their empire—and her sister—fall into enemy hands. But the lines between good and evil blur, and Raina has more to lose than she imagined. What is she to do when the Witch Collector is no longer the villain who stole her sister, but the hero who’s stealing her heart?

The Witch Collector is book one in a thrilling romantic fantasy trilogy, perfect for fans of Naomi Novik, Sarah J. Maas, and Jennifer L. Armentrout.

Interview with an Author Featuring Erin Fulmer

The Literary Vixen presents…

Joining us today is Erin Fulmer! Her newest release, Cambion’s Law released on November 9th 2021.

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing ever since I can remember! My mom is a novelist too so I started emulating her early, and she would write down stories I dictated. I even used to beta read for her! As an adult, I spent a lot of time in fandom spaces and honed my writing skills there. I started to get serious about writing my original work in my thirties. CAMBION’S LAW was the first full-length novel I finished and revised for publication. I started it during NaNoWriMo 2015 so it took six years to get it from first draft to publication.

Describe a typical writing day.

I still have a day job so I do most of my writing after dinner, from about 7pm to 10pm. I start by reading over what I worked on during my last session and doing some light editing. Then I open Twitter…Kidding! (Well, half-kidding.) A typical writing day yields 500-2000 words. I’m not a particularly fast writer. I’m a perfectionist and want to get it right, so I have to battle back my inner editor to get the words out. At 10pm I stop and then my spouse and I watch TV together to unwind.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

I get inspiration from a lot of places—media I love, my own life experiences, things I want to see more of as a reader, what if questions, and personal obsessions or interests. Every book I’ve written so far blends all of those aspects together, and then as I work on it, it becomes something of its own. I like to play with tropes but I also like to introduce aspects I don’t get to see a lot. For instance, CAMBION’S LAW uses a lot of urban fantasy and romance tropes, but it really focuses on consent and explicit negotiation in its romance plot because that was something I wanted to see more often. I also flipped the usual paranormal romance trope of having the human heroine falling for a powerful supernatural creature. In CAMBION’S LAW the protagonist is the powerful supernatural creature in the relationship. That was also inspired by something that always bothered me about some classic media in the genre—I’m thinking BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, for instance, where the powerful heroine doesn’t get to have a healthy relationship because her power intimidates human men. I don’t love the implications of that so I created a romance where the love interest appreciates the heroine’s power and isn’t intimidated by it.

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

My favorite character in CAMBION’S LAW is actually Lily’s best friend, Daniela (Danny) Rios. Lily can take herself too seriously and drown herself in self-loathing, but Danny keeps her grounded with tough love and provides a lot of humor. I love writing them together because of the way they play off each other—I never get blocked when it’s a Danny scene! Danny’s character owes a lot to the close friends and queer support systems in my own life, the people who accept me for exactly who I am. That’s the kind of relationship that is incredibly healing when you weren’t taught how to love yourself properly.

When you’re writing an emotionally draining (or sexy, or sad, etc) scene, how do you get in the mood?

Sometimes I close my eyes and try to envision the scene as if it were playing out on film. I try to hone in on the sensory details and feel the emotions in my body because those help me drop into the experience of it. I listen to music and make playlists for every book, too, and that helps, but I can’t listen to music while I’m actually writing. So I’ll listen when I’m out and about in the car or doing other things to get myself in the right emotional headspace for a later writing session. A lot of times that will spark inspiration.

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

Curious, perfectionist, introverted.

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

I do tend to write books that touch on trauma and recovery so at times I have to take breaks from writing pivotal scenes if something is emotionally tough—sometimes that bleeds over into avoidance, at which point I just have to throw myself into it. I have an excellent therapist and she’s taught me a lot of grounding techniques that really help. My spouse is an amazing support and often notices that something is “off” before I do, so I usually talk it over with him and share what part of my work has me feeling that way. I also do a lot of journaling—writing is usually the way I process things, one way or another.

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

I just finished the manuscript for Cambion Book 2 and sent it out to beta readers and my editor, so I probably should be taking a break. Instead, I started drafting a contemporary fantasy that’s about toxic family legacies, small towns, and coming home to a place you never belonged in the first place. Also it’s gay, fae, and involves the Wood Wide Web, parallel worlds, and climate change. Basically, what I said above about writing my obsessions and mixing elements applies here, too.

What advice would you give to other authors?

You’ll never please every reader and publishing trends change all the time, so write what keeps the fires lit in your own heart. Practice the skill of receiving feedback and critique—authors are sensitive creatures, but as solitary as writing can seem, it takes many people and many eyes to get a book publication-ready. Find community with other writers, because they will support and sustain you when you’re losing faith in your abilities. Learn to promote yourself and your work—it can feel unnatural and awkward at first but it makes a huge difference and is a necessity in today’s industry. You will always be your work’s best champion and advocate and marketing is just another skill to nurture.

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

I love genre fiction as a reader and that’s what I write. I don’t shy away from tough topics but ultimately I write from a place of hope, so you won’t get grimdark from me even when I tread in darker waters. My books will always feature bi/queer rep and I do not bury my gays. My foremost goal is to tell a good story and keep you turning pages—hopefully leaving you with a smile on your face.

It becomes Bria’s personal mission to stop him at all costs and face the hardest decision of her life: standing up to Sava Herstoj and bringing shame to her family or keeping her secrets to herself. No matter which one she chooses, everyone has something to lose.

Foul Ball (Espen Emperors Book 5) by Haven Hadley – New Release

Foul Ball (Espen Emperors Book 5) by Haven Hadley is now available!

~Synopsis~

Declan Armitage. The right fielder Espen got in a trade.

A powerful hitter, a hard throw, and an unmatched stolen base percentage. Not expecting to be traded, he was happy to learn where he was headed. If only he didn’t need to find a new place to live. One phone call from his brother and the plan was put into motion.

Brock Richmond was loyal to a fault. When his best friend called and asked if his brother could stay with him, Brock didn’t hesitate. Declan didn’t have a home in Espen and Brock had a spare room.

Brock retired from professional football at the end of last season. All he wanted was peace and quiet, a chance to relax. He pushed his body far enough. A break was needed. And he wanted someone to spend his time with.

He also had to get up the courage to tell everyone the one secret he kept his entire football career—Brock was gay.

Declan had wanted Brock since he was a teenager. Not that it was a possibility with a straight man. Except, Brock wasn’t so straight after all.

Being true to yourself was a tough road. The fear of rejection was very real. The chance that not everyone would accept the decisions you made.

The ball was high in the sky. The line of in or out wasn’t far. Declan had to decide to let it fall foul or make a dive for it.
