The Interview

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

Where do I even start. Lol. For all who knows me. I write dark fantasy romance. I’m addicted to White monsters (Energy drinks). I love anything to do with Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Which is why my new real ease coming next month is my dark twist on it. I live in East Tennessee with my husband of 15 years and 6 fur babies (all dogs) ranging from 7 lbs up to 75 lbs. Not only am I a writer, I also love to read.

What genre do you write in? Why?

Dark fantasy romance. Because I love putting twist on things. I’ve tried doing non dark, but it always ends up dark. Not all my stories have happy endings.

What does your daily life look like? What do you wish it was like?

I work a lot. Lol. I wish I had more free time to write. Only writing on the weekends isn’t cutting it for me. Lol.

What is your writing process like?

First I have to have my monster close to me and music playing.

How did you come up with the story within your book? What inspired your creativity?

I had a dream about my main character. After that they got into my head demanding me to write their story.

What authors inspired you to write your own book?

Ednah Walters. I told her about the story in my head and she told me to write it. I told her I wasn’t a writer. She then told me that if I wanted my story out there then to write it.

When you write your books do you go straight for pencil and paper or a computer? Why?

Computer because I cannot read my handwriting when I think that fast lol.

Who is your biggest support system in your life?

My husband, mom and sister. Plus my fans are amazing to.

What is the one thing you want to say to your readers?

Thank you for taking a chance on me and my books. I’m so happy you guys love them. I hope you will love the others that I write.

I have a new release coming in September. World of Nightmares. My twist on The Nightmare Before Christmas. I’m almost finished with book 2 in The Light Realm series.

Author Interview: Jennifer Ann Schlag

It’s Thursday! The middle of the week is gone and I got another awesome featured today. I am featuring a good friend of mine from New York. Hope you will stop in and check out Jennifer Ann Sclag in her author interview.

The Interview

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am from New York and, although it can be a rough place to live, I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Growing up around books and movies, I easily fell in love with storytelling from an early age. I wrote short stories throughout my childhood but wrote my first professional screenplay in 2002 (Goval: Parallel Destiny). After abandoning writing for a few years, I picked it back up and wrote the novel version to that screenplay, and that is when aspiring filmmaker became aspiring author. I am seriously addicted to YouTube and Netflix. It is often a distraction for my writing time. Sometimes people ask where I come up with my story ideas and I simply say I find inspiration from everything around me. Life is inspiration.

What genre do you write in? Why?

Dark fantasy/fantasy. Although I grew up watching sci-fi movies, fantasy movies have always been my favorite. Fantasy has a way of making you forget reality for a while, and we all need that. It transports you into another world and, for a moment, you believe in magic and that the impossible is possible.

What inspired you to become an author?

Watching movies and reading books. From there the passion for reading grew and the desire to write stories blossomed.

Tell us about your latest release?

Many who have travelled into the Veiled Haven have never returned, and those that do are forever changed. When opportunity arises for Talen to venture there with a spoiled prince, secrets are revealed about both of them which will change their position in life and what they mean to each other.

How did you come up with the story within your book? What inspired your creativity?

I saw a friend’s premade book cover for sale with a woman and dragon on the cover and instantly the story came to me.

Tell us about your main character in your book. What makes them unique?

Talen is a young woman who could always talk to animals, but mastering a talent such as talking to every animal in the world, even the sacred ones, is a skill only the Masters of the Veiled Haven can acquire. She often gets herself in trouble but manages to find a way out of it barely scarred or bruised.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years as a writer?

Writing more books. Hopefully very successful before those 5 years.

Who is your biggest support system in your life?

My facebook author friends.

Who are your top three favorite authors?

Stephen King, Jordan Frost, and Shakespeare.

What is the one thing you want to say to your readers?

Always keep a foot in the past, your heart in the present, and your mind in the future.


The Author

20160804_081937Jennifer Ann Schlag takes reality and smashes it into fantasy and lets things fall where they way. She finds inspiration from all things in life; the light and the dark are not to be feared. She has an infinite amount of love for animals, especially wolves. When not writing she can often be found reading about philosophy and science, taking sunset pictures, and playing video games. Her favorite movie of all time is The Princess Bride because she believes it gives you a little bit of everything–making it the perfect movie.

Author Interview: Ariel Paiement

Heya everyone, today I have a special treat. I will be featuring fantasy author Ariel Paiement in a special author interview. Check it out below to get to know more about this author and her upcoming release.


The Interview

Please introduce yourself.

I’m Ariel Paiement, a fantasy author who dabbles occasionally in sci-fi or historical fiction. I’ve been writing since I was a little kid, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of the journey to get to where I am. Yes, even the moments when I was sitting there crying because a scene just wouldn’t work. I appreciated those moments more after they were over, of course.

What inspired your latest release?

It was inspired by a combination of world-building information from Pathway of the Moon–first in the companion series Annals of Alcardia–and a prompt from Wattpad’s Open Novella Contest. The prompt was called Myths of the Old World and had to do with the idea of truth being a lie and the lie becoming truth. The prompt really pulled together the idea with the other historical events I knew happened in Alcardia’s past. Those events tied into Pathway of the Moon, and so this story gave me a chance to “share the facts” while still pulling the reader into the world in a fun, immersive way. 

Tell us about your main character.

I have two. Kaidan and Zerua are a husband and wife Seeker team, and they work together on various historical sites around the world of Alcardia. They work for a historical and Seeker guild (their version of an archaeological society) known as the Society of the Learned or just the Society for short. The two of them get themselves into all kinds of trouble when they dug up a diary that belonged to Queen Bane of Ashkarith. Both of them are witty, though in different ways, and enjoy a good laugh. They don’t always agree on what constitutes a good laugh, but they definitely enjoy life. Zerua has a tendency to worry while Kaidan is usually the even-keeled one who calms her down. She’s also the fiestier of the two. But Kaidan is more impatient than she is. They balance each other out and work well together most of the time.

Why did you decide to become a writer?

You know, I don’t really know. I’ve been writing since I was a kid, and I’ve always loved stories. Whether reading, writing, or just daydreaming, I’ve always been one to immerse myself in other worlds and other lives, even when they were fictional. This just naturally spilled over into a desire to keep writing and to write stories that others like me could enjoy. I guess as time as gone on, I’ve stuck with it out of both enjoyment and a desire to share with children and young adults the same joy of reading that was imparted to me as a child. My hope is that my books will be something that even reticent readers will be able to enjoy.

What is your writing process like?

Very structured. I’m definitely a plotter. I like to use a combination of methods. Usually I start out with the Snowflake method from Randy Ingermanson and move on to using a mix of Rachel Aaron’s and Jordan Rosenfeld’s methods of planning for plotting out my scenes. I won’t start writing a chapter until I have all the scenes plotted out, and I rarely start a book unless I have everything from character charts to a synopsis done. The only thing that doesn’t have to be completely finished before I can start is that scene list.

Do you have any strange quarks you do while you write a book?

I talk to myself. Sometimes I can be loud about it too. My sister will be watching YouTube in the room, and I’ll just suddenly set the computer aside and start ranting about how annoyed I am at something a character did. She always laughs because it’s my book, so I did it to myself. But yeah… I definitely talk to myself a lot even if it’s incoherent mumbling. 

I’m also really particular about organization. I’m a plotter all the way, so everything needs to be in place for each scene before I start writing. Beyond that, I’m really particular about how my writing space is organized. Everything needs to be neat and uncluttered for me to work. If I’m sitting on my bed, it has to be made and straightened out regardless of whether I’m under the covers or not. Anywhere else, the surface has to be clean. I can’t think or focus on writing if it isn’t. It just makes me antsy.

What genre does your book fall into?

High fantasy in this case, though other books within the Alcardian universe could potentially be considered portal fantasy or alternate world fantasy since the universe is connected to ours and others. But for Bane of Ashkarith, it’s just high fantasy.

Why did you decide to write within that genre?

High fantasy and fantasy in general allows for a lot of freedom to create and build worlds. I really enjoy that. World-building, when done well, is one of my favorite parts about reading fantasy, and I love having the chance to bring what I’ve learned from reading well-written fantasy into my own work. Plus, fantasy is what I know the best. I’ve been reading it since I was seven or eight, and it’s remained my favorite genre to this day.

Who inspires you to write in your normal day life?

Honestly, I don’t know. I guess my youngest sister does. She reads anything that’s at her age level that I write. I think she’s read some of the books she’s allowed to read multiple times, in fact. Knowing that she’s waiting for an update and enjoys reading my work, and knowing that it inspires her to keep reading and writing herself, definitely encourages me to keep going.

What authors inspired you to write your own book?

Well, my roots for fantasy definitely go back to Tolkien. He was my first major exposure to high fantasy, and the things I took away from reading his work will go with me through the rest of my writing career. But the most obvious influence is Brandon Sanderson. I’ve read a good chunk of his writing, and the Stormlight Archives in particular have heavily influenced me as a writer. He’s inspired me to reach for more with my world-building and my characterization by showing that it’s entirely possible to have both. I’ve striven to have that balance in Bane of Ashkarith wherever possible, and it’s shown in other works of mine as well. Obviously, I’m nowhere near Sanderson’s level of expertise on this, but just seeing that it could be done inspired me to write Bane of Ashkarith the way I did.

While on the dig site, he discovers the evidence he’s looking for, but he gets more than he bargained for when he discovers a woman’s bones in a section of the dig site where no other remains have been found.
As he digs the bones out, he discovers a journal with the woman’s body, which tells a story that, if true, will turn the myths of the old world and the established concepts of good and evil on their heads. Startled by the find, Kaidan sets out to discover whether the diary’s claims have any validity.
But when the diary leads to a city that’s supposedly long gone, Kaidan’s journey becomes more difficult than expected. Things become even more tangled when he discovers that the city isn’t gone, but it’s no place for the living.
Unable to give up on his quest, he forges ahead. What lies ahead is uncertain, and even more uncertain is whether Kaidan will survive this quest. He has only two questions in his mind. Will he find the truth in this city of the dead? And will the world accept the truth?

About Jennifer Ann Schlag

JENNIFER_ANN_SCHLAG_AUTHORPICI am a dark-fantasy writer that likes to take reality and smash it into fantasy and let things fall where they may. Although I see myself as more of a visual storyteller (filmmaker/screenwriter), I am ultimately a storyteller. I started out writing short stories to entertain myself and my friends, which progressed into writing screenplays. Then, after wanting to expand on my stories and the characters, I decided to try novel writing. My parents did not share my passion of wanting to make movies and writing stories as a career, so I abandoned it for a while. But it came back to me. Some things are meant to be and they will always find a way to be together.

I have an infinite amount of love for animals, especially wolves. Every story of mine features a wolf in some way.

Sludge and the Rabbit Girl

“Damn it to hell!” He fumed storming into his office.

I can’t believe that little brat did this. Christophé was red with rage. The nerve of that brat! All he wanted to do was relax in his office and get silence for two seconds from all these screaming kids. Instead, when he opened his office door, he got a pile of sludge on his head.

“What’s wrong, my lord?” Kent said stifling a laugh. “Oh…”

Christophé turned around to look at the little weasel of a man. “Don’t you even think about laughing!” he snapped. He slammed his hands down with force on his desk glaring with a deep fiery hatred reflecting in his eyes.

“Umm…why would I do that?” Kent asked pressing the back of his hand to his mouth trying to stop the oncoming giggles. He failed miserably as the heated glare pierced him from across the room.

“Quit your snickering…get me a damn towel and some clean clothes” he snapped. Christophé threw himself into his chair with a thud. This crud better not ruin my chair or hell will be paid ten-fold.

“Yes, sir!” Kent squealed. The slim built man with his red mage robes dashed from the office as if on fire. I swear the man is like a cat running after a mouse he can never catch.

This is the last straw. If Kero thinks she is going to get away with this prank, she has another thing coming. He walked over to his stacks of books lining his walls of bookcases doing his best not to drip on the carpet. Christophé fingers twitched as he looked for the appropriate binding. Once his hand rested over his spell book with its gold binding, he took it out and flipped through the pages looking for a spell.

“Got it,” he said. “This will be perfect.” A deep chuckle sprung from his throat as he walked over to the balcony. His eyes danced across the land below his terrace, looking out over the horse stables, the small kitchen garden, till his eyes locked on the sparring fields.

He could make out two forms in the distance, bent over each other snickering. There you two are, you little menaces, he thought staring at his granddaughter and her friend Alex. This is the last straw Kero and this time you will get punished.

Christophé looked down at the beautiful handwritten words as he spoke the words of power. “Ana sele raviso elishe.” A loud crack filled the air followed by a clap as he shut the book. Silently he laughed to himself as smoke formed around the two mischievous girls.

A few seconds passed before yelling began and he knew his spell was successful. That will teach the little brat. He watched as the crowd formed around Alex as Kero’s form disappeared. Bending over, the now solo girl picked something up small and fuzzy.

“Oh, how sweet it is to be victorious,” he said turning back around to find Kent walking back into his office. Perfect timing.  

“My lord, I got you a new change of clothing.” The younger mage said as he handed over the garments and the towel to clean himself off.

“Great, now one last thing” he began as Kent arched a blonde eyebrow. “Keep Roseanne in the dark about what just happened.”

“What did you do this time?” Eyes of shock stared back at him. He knows all too well what I will do when pissed off.

“If you’re talking about the rabbit girl,” Christophé sneered. “I had nothing to do with it…” or did I?

He couldn’t help but laugh and enjoy the screaming about Kero being a rabbit. The price some are willing to pay to teach a spoiled princess a lesson. Now just have to think of a suitable punishment for that friend of hers.  

He contemplated what to do about Alex’s hand in the ordeal but the sound of screaming filled his ears. Ah…sweet music. Now if only Hailey was here to squeeze her head off. Hmm…guess there is a use for great-grandchildren.

CHARACTER SPOTLIGHT: Eva Della Luna

Welcome to my Friday Author Spotlight, today I will be doing a character interview with Eva Della Luna. She is a healer and a painter within YA Fantasy author Maria Vermisoglou book The Cursed Girl. I am happy to have them both here today for your enjoyment. Hope you will look into adding The Cursed Girl, the first book in The Cursed Girl series to your reading list.

Without further a do, lets get the party started…


~ EVA DELLA LUNA ~

Do you have a chosen profession? What is it?

I’m a healer and a painter.

What’s your world like and where do you fit in it?

I was born in the White Land, a magical land where witches reside. I live in Spain in the year 1230. Things are hard because royals are cruel with their people. I try to help them as much as I can but there’s so much you can do. I try to balance my life with and without powers because in the era I live, magic is not something you reveal.

Is there one person you would move heaven and earth to protect? Who is it and why?

Jonathan. He is one of the ones I love most and even if he’s acting stupid some times, I love him and I will protect him.

What are your goals? What would you like to achieve?

I would like to travel, draw, be with my friends and my cat. Preferably, without being killed by demons or humans.

Tell us about your favorite adventure you went on? Don’t leave out any juicy details…

I’ve been in lots of places but one of my favorites was when we were running away and hid into a forest in Firenze (Italy). Yes, we were in hiding which I did not like but the place was amazing. I love nature and this place was like magic. We were staying in a cave near a waterfall and the view was amazing. All right, maybe it was also amazing because Jonathan kissed me there and made me lose control of my powers. A fact that I didn’t like but fortunately, he didn’t ask any questions. But anyway, if you ever get a chance to go to Florence, please don’t miss it.

Everyone has a close friend or companion. Who is yours? Tell us a bit about them…

Ritta is my best witch friend, my companion in battle. We do everything together and tell each other everything. She’s like a sister to me and I rely to her. She is a great listener and her advice is very helpful. Witches can communicate with telepathy so she’s there even if she’s not physically there.

What is the biggest regret you have? Can you explain?

That I didn’t throw to jail the yelling couple who caused my death. Nah, uh! I’m not saying anything else. You have to read the book!

Tell us about your nemesis. Why are you to enemies? How did it happen?

I’m a witch, I have lots of enemies. Mainly, demons. In my world, witches have the duty to protect humans from demons. We guard the boarders of the Earth for that reason. Another one of my enemies was my husband’s uncle who tried to kill us and take over the world with his army. Luckily, I was there to sacrifice myself and beat his evil plans.

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? Why?

Myself or my situation? I would like to trust people more easily, especially these who are worth it.

PRE-ORDER TODAY!

It’s hard to believe next week is Thanksgiving and Black Friday. This year has gone by so fast. I have a special announcement today though. My fourth story in my Tales of Ferrês series has gone up for Pre-Order. Just in time for the holidays. “The Assassin’s Prophecy” tells the story of Jeremy. He is a mercenary among the Assassin Association and is on a special mission. Who is his mark? You must read the description below to find out.

Each story within the Tales of Ferrês series is a standalone tale and can be read out of order. However, they are far better read in order with secrets revealed about the forest as they surface.

A chance encounter with a mysterious elven maiden secures his escape from imprisonment and certain death.
With her help, he finds solace among the trees only to realize he has become trapped inside the Forest of Ferrês. Trading one evil for another, Jeremy will face truths about himself he never knew.
Can he deny the words of fate spoken from a Unicorn’s mind? Join Jeremy in the fourth installment of the Tales of Ferrês to find out.

COVER REVEAL ~ Nightmare of Ferrês

Today is a busy day. First an announcement for my new release Bonds of Friendship, and now a Cover Reveal. It is only getting better and better with this series. The Assassin’s Prophecy and Nightmare of Ferrês will open your eyes to the world of Tarzinëa and the direction the series will go with the target audience.

Below you will find the cover for Nightmare of Ferrês the 5th installment within the Tales of Ferrês series. You will get to see the true horror that lives within the shadow of Ferrês, the land the kyres and twin-tailed foxes fear treading. Keep your eyes peeled for Pre-Order announcement. Hope you enjoy this awesome cover reveal.

Now that I have rambled on forever here is my cover for “The Assassin’s Prophecy.”

NEW RELEASE: Bonds of Friendship

The day has finally arrived, Bonds of Friendship the 3rd installment in my Tales of Ferrês story series is here! It hit Amazon and Kindle Unlimited this morning and I hope you all will snatch up a copy.

This is a longer story with two POVs within. Silvashi and Karigan change the world of Tarzinëa forever. But, this story will take you back in time before they became the King and Queen. It will take you back to the time when they were young and free. Showing you that not is what it seems when stories and rumors fill peoples’ heads with lies.

JENKINS_2018_BONDSFRIENDSHIP_NEWRELEASE

Bonds of Friendship
Tales of Ferrês Story #3

If you looked a creature in the eye believed to be a mindless beast that kills without thought, what do you do when you realize the truth is but a lie? Walk alongside Karigan as the Forest of Ferrês beacons her to a destiny she never wanted or expected. She knows now that the world is wrong, and the only way to change it is with Silvashi at her side.

Journey to a time before an empire was born, when dragons were wild and were seen as monstrous killers. Witness the moment everything changed—when one girl created a bond of friendship that forever altered her world, bringing forth the dawning of a new era.

#WIP Monday – NaNo Takeover

Its been a few weeks since my last #WIP Monday post. Sorry about this been a hectic few weeks. I have been writing, designing, and working on several projects along with participating in several online author events. This has taken a toll on my blogging time for my posts. However, things are starting to get under control.

Due to it being a new month I will provide my goals from last month and share how I measured up. Then will follow up with my new goals for November.

My Goals for October:

  1. Publish “Bonds of Friendship” story #3 in the Tales of Ferrês series. Included with this is the following:
    1. Finish designing the book cover (Done)
    2. Finish writing the story (Done)
    3. Edit it and get it up for Pre-Order once the cover is done (Done)
    4. Get Promo graphics made (Done)
  2. Get the rough done for The Celestial One episode one. (Changed back to Book Format)
  3. Work on Tarzinëa’s outline and world building (Didn’t Touch)
  4. Write the next story in the Tales of Ferrês series – this would be #4 (Finished ~ being edited)
  5. Don’t go nuts with all the promos and events going on :). (Made it through alive)

The only items on the list for October I didn’t get to was numbers 2 & 3. Bonds of Friendship is officially done. It had to be pushed back to Nov. 9th for release due to the holiday. Didn’t want to take away from family time for myself or my editor.

Story number four, The Assassin’s Prophecy is done. I finished writing it yesterday Nov. 4th. It was my first item on my list for NaNo. Now I am working on story five, Nightmare of Ferrês. I put in over 2k on this story this morning alone. This story will be done either today or tomorrow morning. Depends on if I get quiet time at all today for writing.

My writing goals for November are as followed:

  1. Write Story #4 ~ The Assassin’s Prophecy (Being Edited)
  2. Write Story #5 ~ Nightmare of Ferrês (Currently Writing)
  3. Write Story #6 ~ The Wrath of SnowFire (Not Started)
  4. Write Anthology Piece ~ Path to Redemption, Demonic Embrace Prequel ~ Word Limit: 15-20k, Deadline: January 2019.
  5. Start Writing Demonic Embrace Book 1 ~ Escape to Worcester
  6. Get Story #5 & 6’s Covers Done
  7. Make New Release graphic for Story #3 ~ Bonds of Friendship
  8. Make pre-order, teasers and new release graphics for Story #4 & 5

I could probably go on and on with a list of things I want to get done in November. However I think this will be a good start. With NaNo I am hoping to get most of these writing projects done. Then if I clear them out of the way I can work on Tarzinëa like I’ve been wanting to do.


WHAT’S NEW

I have a long list of knew items I can go into in this post. However, I am going to try to focus on the important items below. The top random knew items that come to mind are: the word counters in my footer widgets, my rebranding for my newsletter, and my new books coming out.

The biggest item of news is this girl has been signed up Triple Goddess Publishing. I’ll be with them for the next five years under contract and will be doing several anthologies with them, along with my own books. This transition has to do with me being quiet on my blog lately. But, hey now I am back in the game and ready to get the party started again.

Below you will find my upcoming events and promos I have my books signed up under. Check them out and have fun.

THE DARKEST ROSE BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Laurel Black Blog Tour

THE BLACK ROSE COVERTHE DARKEST ROSE

‘He was about a head taller than I was. He was black, and had dark, caramel eyes. There were shadows underneath his eyes, with a sort of sorrow engraved within them. He was around my age, but something told me otherwise. It was his very presence that reminded me of something kind, compassionate, desperate.

He wore all black, so much so I thought he looked like the reaper. His hands were bound, just like mine, and though his head was supposed to be down, he knew I was there. There was something animalistic about him, something I couldn’t help but be enticed by. And it snapped me out of my hunger.

“Do you know me?” was the first thing I heard.’

Nathan is a resident at Blackwell, a famous institution for the deranged, the criminally insane, and children with special powers. His job? Devour death row inmates on the day of their execution. This changes when he is kidnapped by a mysterious man named Damien, who says he knows Nathan from a life he neither wanted nor understood. In this chilling tale of love and loss, can Nathan overcome his demons and find the strength to move on, or will he be lost in the sorrow of his own sins?
