Character Interview: Tauren Holt

Heya everyone! Hope your having a great day so far. I am hoping this character interview with Tauren Holt from Something Honorable will brighten your day. So, sit back and enjoy the read.

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

Well, my name is Tauren Holt, and I don’t like to call myself great. I’ve fucked up and made a lot of mistakes in my life. Mistakes that are far from great. I suppose the greatest thing about those mistakes, about me, is that I was a given a second chance.

SomethingHonTsrWhat is your soul purpose in life?

A year ago I would have said my sole purpose was to win the race. I hate coming in second. Fuck that, I hate coming in any other position other than first. Now, my outlook has changed. I might would say my sole purpose is winning Helene Jacobs.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?

Oh, shit. I’ve had a lot of adventures. When you live in a small town like Chapelwood, you get into trouble. My brothers and me have done some crazy things, but probably the craziest would be interrupting Helene Jacobs’ baptism by riding my bicycle through our church.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

I’ve had my sights on Helene, our preacher’s daughter, for quite some time. I’m not sure what I would call it. Love, lust, or just a craving I need to satisfy, but it’s definitely an interest and I can’t let it go.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.Journey?

I suppose sneaking around with Helene has been a journey. It’s definitely tested my patience, that’s for sure. But I’ve settled down because of her. I have never been a saint and never will be, but with her, I don’t need the attention that comes with winning a race at Down ‘n’ Dirty on the weekends. I don’t screw every track bunny that looks my way. I want to make promises to Helene that I haven’t made to anyone. Is that considered growth?

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?

I live in a small town in southern Alabama and my brother rides bulls for a hobby. I’m around horses a lot too. I don’t live in the city so I also like to fish and hunt, just like every other southern man.

Who do you look up too? Why?

Without a doubt, I look up to my parents. My mama and daddy have a rock solid relationship and they raised my brothers and me to be hard-working, loyal, and caring. Although I don’t see marriage in my future, if I ever do get married, I want something like what they have.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

I know I’m not perfect, but I am who I am. I smoke, drink, cuss, and don’t give a fuck who I rub the wrong way. Maybe I’m a little selfish too, but that’s me and I admit it. Some people don’t like that, especially Pastor Jacobs, but I’m not changing for him. If I change for anyone, it will be for Helene, and so far, she hasn’t asked me to.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

The only person standing in the way of what I want is Pastor Jacobs. When he isn’t preaching on Sundays, he’s wearing a damn badge as the Chief of Police of Chapelwood. He and his deputy love to make my life a living hell and have made it no secret they don’t want me around Helene.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

I fuck up a lot. I have what I want right in my grasp and I screw it all up. Life hands me some harsh lessons and they nearly break me.SHNew-collage


The Book

Something Honorable Full WrapShe’s the perfect incarnate of an angel. Pure. Innocent. The only reason I come to church on Sunday mornings. The only woman I treat differently than the others. The only woman I unintentionally make promises to.

Promises I do intend to keep.

I’m practically sin walking. Immoral. Dishonorable. The very reason she should be in church on Sunday mornings. The only man she has ever allowed to touch her. The only man who makes her turn her back on everything she believes in. The only man who has the capability to destroy her.

And does.

Promises aren’t always kept. Life can unravel at the seams. The decisions we make when our world is falling apart can either be cowardly or something honorable.

Interview with Reecah Draakvriend

Omg…it’s Monday again. Anyone else feel like rolling over and praying the weekend started over again. Well anyway to get the week started I am sitting down with Reecah Draakvriend, from Fantasy author Richard H. Stephens books Reecah’s Flight and his upcoming release Reecah’s Gift. Hope you will enjoy this sit down I sure did.

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

I am Reecah Draakvriend, a simple girl from a small fishing village on the western coast of the Great Kingdom. As far as special, I don’t think I am special at all, but those in the know claim that I am the last of the dragon friends who used to be known as Windwalkers.

What is your soul purpose in life?

I grew up wanting to follow in my grandfather’s footsteps and join the dragon hunt. Due to a chance encounter with a baby dragon, my purpose has now changed. I have made it my life’s goal to save dragonkind from extinction, or die in the attempt.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?

I once tried to enlist with the dragon hunt, but that didn’t end well. I have also been the subject of a witch’s experiments, and although terrifying at the time, they have made me realize who I am. I also ventured into the Dragon Temple, deep inside an active volcano and lived to tell about it,

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

That’s a tough one. I have been an outcast and a loner my entire life so forming a bond with other people doesn’t come naturally to me. There is one person who makes me feel all strange inside, but his family and mine aren’t on good terms.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

I am on a personal quest to save the dragons from a tyrannical king. My goal is to somehow get an audience in front of him to enlighten him on what a bad idea his dragon campaign is. Unfortunately, for someone as low born as I am, getting an audience with the high king of the greatest realm, is nothing more than a pipe dream.

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?

Dragons! I have befriended 4 dragons who accompany me on my journey. I also travel with an elf, a dwarf, and perhaps my favourite friend of all, my raven, Raver.

Who do you look up too? Why?

My poppa. But he’s dead now. He always encouraged me to follow my dreams, despite what society thought.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

My temper, for sure. Thus my inability to let the taunts of the other kids while growing up from bothering me. I’m not well liked because of the noses I have broken.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

That is a tough one. High King J’kaar is definitely up there, as it is his edict that promotes the slaying of dragons, but his son, J’kwaad the dark heir is probably number 1. J’kwaad is the leader of the hunt. His magical abilities make him a formidable foe that no one wishes to go up against.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

I venture into the bigger world and quickly learn how twisted it actually is. Being from a small town, the goings on are real eye openers. I will strive to better myself and become more confident in dealing with personalities that are larger than life. My temper will cause me problems, but hey, that’s who I am.


The Book

STEPHENS_2019_RG_EBOOK_150Fleeing from the only life she has ever known, Reecah Windwalker sets out to avert a terrible tragedy. One that will force the dragons to the edge of extinction. But first, Reecah must find herself.

Braving the perils of a cutthroat city, Reecah discovers that as bad as life may have seemed, nothing prepared her for what her future has in store. Surviving hardships no one should ever have to endure, she finds herself face-to-face with those seeking her demise.

Without the intervention of an eclectic warrior, and the assistance of her dragon friends, Reecah might never realize the gift so many died to protect.

Character Interview with Skye from The Light Realm Series

Happy hump day to you! Today I am sitting down with Skye from Karen DuBose’s book series, ‘The Light Realm’. Please help me in welcoming her and hope you have fun getting know her ins and outs. Happy reading :).

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?
I’m Skye from The Light Realm Series. I don’t consider myself great. I get by like everyone else. Some people say I’m great because of the power I weld. But for me it’s a burden.

What is your soul purpose in life?
To bring back the balance of light and dark. If I don’t the dark will destroy our world.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?
I have been sheltered for most of my life. Everything I did was watched. I didn’t get to do anything until I ran away from the Coven that thought they could use me. The adventures we had to get to where we are now has been crazy. Between the Starborn Coven coming after us and the dark source. I’m suprized we made it to a safe place for now.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.
Yes! I found my bond mate. He was definitely not my choice, but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. Adrik is one of the people I was supposed to destroy to turn back the balance. The prophecy was all wrong.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.
I still have to bring the balance back. I have never let it get to my head. I knew being born this powerful takes a lot of responsibility. In a way I grew up before my time. I didn’t get to do the things normal witches or humans got to do. Knowing all of this has changed me. Meeting Drik changed who I was. I think for the good. But our journey isn’t even close to being over. There is one person I have to take out. Arik’s father Zaryn. He is more powerful than we thought.

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?
If you consider witches and warlocks with dark magic to be creatures, than I don’t see any.

Who do you look up too? Why?
I looked up to my mother until recently. She was a strong woman. At least at the time I thought she was. Something has changed in her after she found out Drik and I are soulmates.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?
I wish I could change my confidence. I lack a lot of it.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?
Zaryn is my ultimate enemy. He has been trying to kill me since birth. He is the reason the balance is off. Now that Drik and I are together, he is after his son to.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?
Hopefully I get the balance back and I can enjoy life with my family without hunting people down.


The Book

Turning her back on them felt right at the time. Maybe she made a huge mistake, but she was never letting them use her.
Drik’s life has been nothing but fun and games. Spreading evil as much as he can. He knows there is a light witch that is destined to destroy him, but he has come up with a plan to change that destiny.

So, lets get into this character interview to learn more about this awesome character and his book.

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

My name is Luthor McAlester and I am the newest Traveler in the series of Generation Son Chronicles. I come from a long line of Travelers and my heritage is strong within me.

What is your sole purpose in life?

My purpose in life changed recently as it was not till my 18th birthday that I found out I was a traveler. Now, that I have this new found destiny, my sole purpose in life it to help others that need it the most.

What kind of adventures have you had that stays with you till this day?

I would say, the first adventure to Olympus has been the best. With it being my first trip to assist the fallen gods, it holds a special place in my heart. Of course nothing will ever compare to fighting alongside the Musketeers.

Do you have a love interest?

If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t. Do I ever. She is my best friend actually. We have talked about whether or not there will ever be anything between us, but with powers of her own, she has to make a choice. She can keep her powers or love me. It is a decision she will need to make on her own.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

I think every journey is a growing experience. You learn new things about yourself that you didn’t know before; how strong you are, how much will you have, and how much you are able to tolerate.

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?

Nothing out of the ordinary. There has been a dragon or two in the past.

Who do you look up too? Why?

I used to not have anyone to look up to since my father left us at such a young age, but now that I know my past, there are 3 men I look up to the most and I am related to all of them.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

My temper, lol. Even with everything I have learned and as strong as I have gotten, the temper has always remained.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

The enemies seem to change as time goes on. I can’t give all my secrets away.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

Dragons, Magic, Battles, and Knights.

Character Interview: Edgar Wynn

It’s hump day! The weekend is almost here and do I got a treat for you. This character interview with Edgar Wynn is special because his book comes out this Saturday, August 10th. So, to get you in the spirits to pre-order his awesome book check out his character interview below. Happy reading everyone :).

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

My name is Edgar Wynn. I don’t consider myself great at anything. My four brothers are much better skilled at most things than I am.

What is your sole purpose in life?

My assigned role in life is as a mage, but I’ve even managed to bungle that up and lose my ability to do magick. If it weren’t for the fairy dust Tribba got me, I wouldn’t have conjured that dragon or managed anything magickal at all.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?

Up until I was forced to leave my kingdom, my adventures were limited to exploring the Wynnrar Woods surrounding Northend, my city. Since then, traveling through the desert and meeting Juba (and him not eating me!) and championing the Hegis in Willowglen have stayed with me. I conjured a dragon! I’m also madly in love with a dwarf and can’t wait to get back to Willowglen to see her.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

Salisa is the love of my life. I met her in Willowglen when we would go to the arena. She tends a cart in the marketplace. Her family has lived in Willowglen for a long time, and while Tribba disapproves of our relationship, it’s mostly because of some dark history between Salisa’s father and Tribba herself. Salisa isn’t her father though, and Tribba will come around in the end. She’d already started to when Derik forced me to return home.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

I left Northend to relearn my magick, but I never made it to the Great Mage. I championed Tribba in Willowglen instead. She helped me gain some self-confidence, even if I didn’t regain any of my own magick. At least now I have some people on my side, even if they are dwarves. I don’t believe the same as my brother Derik does. I believe everyone is equal, all have something equally important to contribute to Savania’s society. I’m not sure I would say I’ve grown any. I’m still as small as I was when I left. Derik reminds me of this often enough.

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?

Since Tribba gave me a pouch of fairy dust, I see them on a regular basis. Sergy has decided to help me and I’m very appreciative. Derik and I encountered a bargle on our way back to Northend. These are the tiger/bear like creatures that live in the Wynnrar Woods and protect it. Up until I left Northend, I had only seen forest creatures like rabbits, chipmunks, deer, and within the city walls I would find rats, mice, horses, and the occasional bat.

Who do you look up too? Why?

My older brother Fredryk. He’s tough but gentle and always manages to look out for the little guy. He is always helping others and giving up his own things to help someone else. He is also the captain of our army and can swing a sword better than anyone else.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

I wish I had more guts to speak my mind.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

I don’t have any enemies, not really. I want to find the persons responsible for putting the enchantment on my city, and make sure the dragon queen and her knights don’t take over, but “enemy” is a strong word. I’ve never really had any conflicts with anyone worth declaring them an enemy over.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

Charades will complete my story. I leave Northend for Evenir, the Holy City and finally meet up with the Great Mage and Ravengale, his apprentice. I rejoin with Tribba and lead a small army against Soren in Northend.


The Book

Catching Dragons ebook coverA reluctant hero, an enchanted kingdom, a crazed prince…

Out of the ashes of doubt, courage is born.

As Derik whisks Edgar away from Willowglen where he’d been championing the dwarves, he can’t help but wonder what has really happened to his kingdom since his departure. Tales of an attack from the sky and an army of black knights precede him, and nothing is as Edgar expects when he arrives back home in Northend. His city lies under an enchantment, and they need him to break it. Tasked with regaining his lost magick and armed with a pouch of fairy dust, Edgar is determined to do the right thing.

Will he find the courage to confront the man responsible for his father’s death or will he run away like the coward Derik believes him to be?

Catching Dragons 3

Character Interview: Oswald the Ostentatious

It’s Sunday…which means tomorrow is Monday. Let me help you with your early Monday blues by showcasing this special character interview featuring Oswald from Catula by Debbie Manber Kupfer. Stop by and check it out. Who knows you might find an awesome book to purchase.

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

My name is Oswald and I’m the Principle of the P.A.W.S. Institute of New York. I’m an animagus flamingo and am very fond of the color pink. I run the Institute with a firm but friendly hand. I also very much enjoy art and teach an art class at P.A.W.S. for those who are artistically inclined. I also enjoy interpretive dance and song in my flamingo form and have been told I have amazing range.

What is your sole purpose in life?

To act as shepherd and guide to the students and faculty of P.A.W.S.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you until this day?

It is a checkered past that led me to where I am today. Before settling at the New York Institute I traveled the globe visiting different international communities of shapeshifters. One of the most exciting was my time spent in the P.A.W.S. Institute of Kenya where I was honored to go on safari with the then head of the institute, Alhaadi. Alhaadi’s animagus is an elephant and I traveled on his back for part of the journey. I will never forget my time there and hope that someday I can visit again.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

Yes, Geoffrey and I have been together for eight years. His raven form, so much more practical than my flamingo, helps keep me grounded. He is also an excellent listener. As the Principal at P.A.W.S. I spend much of my day listening to the problems of others. It is good to relax in the evening and share a bottle of fine wine with Geoffrey and unload the problems of the day.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

And as flamingo — don’t forget that! Seriously, even though I’m head of the institute I still learn something new every day. In particular during this last year we have taken in our first werewolf. Werewolves in New York have traditionally had a bad reputation as there is a well-known werewolf mafia that operates out of Brooklyn that have caused some terrible conflicts over the years. The werewolf at P.A.W.S. though, Jamie Barnes, appears to be an earnest young man who assures me that he only ever hunts vermin on the full moon. I believe therefore that Jamie is helping me overcome my previous prejudice against wolves.

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?

Ah, well we have all sorts at P.A.W.S. Cats and birds aplenty along with a talented group of animagus foxes who have formed a rock band (Demonica and the Screaming Foxes). We also currently host a spider monkey who is fond of losing himself in the trees of Central Park and a magnificent peacock who is the most talented student in my art class.

Who do you look up too? Why?

I very much respect Jessamyn, my counterpart at the P.A.W.S. Institute of the Midwest. She is probably the most powerful magician of illusion in the world. She transforms her office daily into a different scene and I swear you can even smell the scent of the blossoms in her illusory meadows.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

It is unwise mess with perfection, don’t you think?

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

The werewolf, Frederick, currently concerns me. He is gaining in power and I don’t fully understand his ultimate goal. I do understand that he is dangerous and volatile and that ultimately we all at P.A.W.S. will need to battle against him.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

My book? I am but one of the players in COTULA. All the stones need to come together and I am thankful to do my part.

Character Interview: Alabama Rain

Happy Friday everyone! Today I am featuring Alabama Rain from her book Alabama Rain. Lol, sounds like she is awesome if she gets her name on the cover. Well anyway today I am featuring her in a character interview. Who is the lucky author that wrote this awesome vampire book? That would be PNR author Lana Campbell. Stop by and check out this spectacular interview to see inside her main character.

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

I’m Alabama Rain Holden and I’m an ex-drug dealer. Until a short while ago nothing made me great. I was forced by my feral vampire father to do despicable things and I hated myself and my life. Then I met a special person who showed me how to rise above my lot in life. He showed me unconditional love and taught me that God loves me unconditionally. Now what makes me great is the ability to forgive those who have hurt me and love them unconditionally through the power of God’s grace and love for me.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?

When I was a kid before my father lost his sanity and soul and my mother died, I had an amazing family. We traveled in an RV all over the country for my parents’ work. My father played in a band and got gigs in bars, casinos and farmers markets. My mother sold crystal jewelry at farmers markets and flea markets. My parents always managed to take time for me and my brother Gan. They homeschooled us and took us to hundreds of historical sites across the country. We learned history by viewing where it had happened, from battlefields to southern plantations, historical figures homes–you name it.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

I do. His name is Nate Davenport. Like me, he’s a born vampire. His childhood was one of wealth and privilege filled with love too. He’s a Christian. A real one that lives the life and is loving and kind. There isn’t a judgmental bone in his body. He was able to see past the sick and twisted criminal life I led to the agony I felt for having to do it. He saw the true me and at the time, the wounded me. Instead of being disgusted by what I did to survive, he gave me help and hope for a future. He’s the best thing that ever happened to me and did I mention he’s gorgeous? I love him and I’m so happy he’s my life mate.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

I’m on a journey of self discovery. I lost twelve years of my youth living in darkness and fear because I was a drug dealer for my father. I missed out on college, dating, proms and all the things high school and college kids get to do. Now that I’m free and living a respectable life, I’m trying to see who I am as a person. I recently published my first novel, a parody of my life. It’s about a drug dealer and her brother, who also deals drugs, trying to get out of that life and find their happily ever after. The book is a best seller and I couldn’t be happier. My goal is to continue writing, while finding other talents to cultivate and nurture.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

My past. I wish I could have been a normal girl that hadn’t had to fight to survive. I wish I could have taken ballet classes instead of martial arts that were necessary for me to learn to fend off thugs, drug dealers and scumbags. I wish I could have had a best friend growing up, but there was no room in my life for friends. I have one now though and that’s my life mate Nate. With his help I’m gaining back all the things I lost and I’m starting to put my past behind me.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

I don’t have any enemies anymore. Once my ultimate enemy was my father. He had a mental disease called feralism, something vampires who lose their life mates are prone to suffering. He made my life a living hell during the dark years of his sickness. I hated him, yet I loved him and wanted him to love me back. He couldn’t because he existed in a place of darkness so smothering it destroyed his ability to tell right from wrong. His crimes and sins finally caught up with him, though. He was arrested by a vampire tribunal and was facing a death sentence which caused him to have a revelation about the man he’d become. It was God who propagated that revelation for my father and he repented of his horrible crimes and all the vicious, insufferable things he did to me. He begged me to forgive him and I did. Today I have a wonderful, loving father who is no longer my enemy, but a man I can love and respect because he now walks with God.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

Alabama Rain is an emotional roller coaster ride and I cried writing it more than any book I’ve ever written. Alabama’s father, Ken Holden was absolutely the most sick and twisted villain I’ve ever created. He murdered people, raped young girls, peddled copious amounts of drugs, did them himself and turned teen humans and vampires into drug dealers and addicts. An awful person he was until God opened his eyes to the vile, disgusting creature he’d been. In Alabama Rain, Ken gets saved and does everything in his power to make up for his evil. I felt Ken needed his own story that occurs after being imprisoned by a vampire tribunal for all his heinous crimes. My next book is Ken’s journey to forgive himself, which doesn’t come easy. He has some help, though. Lovely Eden McCallister, a vampire psychologist who deals with feral vampires, helps him see there can be life after being a feral vampire and forgiving oneself doesn’t mean discounting or forgetting the terrible things Ken did to other people.


The Book

Lana Campbell Alabama Rain for printAlabama Rain Holden’s life is a dreadful and dangerous one as a thief of drugs for her father, drug lord Ken Holden. Rain hates her life, but she’s damned good at what she does. As a vampire with an acute sense of smell, she can sniff out any drug as well as a blood hound, enchant the human mule with the goods to be sold and relieve him or her of the product without the person never remembering the encounter.

One night her drug thievery takes her to Davenport Tower, an opulent forty eight stories of luxury condos owned by the handsome, vampire billionaire, Nate Davenport. Rain’s job that evening is to locate the sellers carrying seventy-five pounds of Columbian weed, steal it and return the goods to her father. Unfortunately, the heist going down in Davenport Tower’s parking garage is interrupted by none other than Nate Davenport himself.

Nate is incensed when he discovers Rain is a drug dealer operating on his turf. He embarks on a mission to catch her committing a crime so he can bring her before a vampire tribunal where she will pay for her crimes with her life. In his efforts to get the evidence Nate needs against Rain, he instead gets information he never bargained for. Once he learns her dark secret, that she’s been brutally forced into this life of crime by her maniacal father, Nate will stop at nothing to liberate her from her feral vampire father.

To survive in a world she hates, Rain adopts a bad ass persona. It doesn’t take Nate long to see the real Alabama Rain’s heart. She’s brave and fearless, kind and compassionate. She even puts her life on the line to save twelve young girls her father has turned into vampire drug dealers. Nate falls for her and hard. But Rain’s seedy, violent world may just cost him his life when Rain’s father discovers Rain and Nate have fallen in love.
