Interview with Chris Stralyn, author of This Time You Lose



.

Today I have with me author Chris Stralyn, who writes suspense thrillers. It is my pleasure to invite her, as I have never had a suspense thriller author on the blog. This got very interesting, as I was able to ask all the questions I had about writing thrillers! So, lets jump in and get started with this interview!

Interview with Chris Stralyn,

author of This Time You Lose

Describe your book? What genre would you classify it into?

Genre: Suspense/Thriller

What would you do if street thugs invaded your home? What if you’re a child care provider, caring for a dozen kids at the time? Lisa Kaamp, a most unlikely heroine, faces just such a nightmare in This Time You Lose, the terrifying story of one woman’s struggle to survive when she and the children she cares for become victims of a home invasion gone terribly wrong.

How did you come up with the idea for the book?

Years ago, a neighboring community was plagued with a series of home invasions. A childcare provider myself at the time, I wondered what would happen if one of these invasions occurred in a childcare home. A woman home alone, caring for up to a dozen children in a deserted, middle-class neighborhood made the perfect target for one of these invasions – and thus my story was born.

Interview with Jackie Gamber author of the Leland Dragon Series


.
As part of the blog tour launching Sela, the second book in the Leland Dragon Series by author Jackie Gamber, today, I have with me, the author herself! We are talking about Jackie’s journey as an author, her books, the Leland Dragon Series and how it originated and a lot more! So, what are we waiting for? Lets get started!

Interview with Jackie Gamber

author of the Leland Dragon Series

Describe your series. What genre would you classify it into?

The Leland Dragon Series is full of magic, mysteries, dragons, and more; the heart of High Fantasy. But more than that, the characters deal with identity issues, fears, dreams…all those things we all deal with in our modern world.

How did you come up with the idea for the series?

The characters introduced themselves to me, and, in particular, Kallon Redheart. Their world filled in around them, as I explored the story. Let it unfold as I was washing dishes, sleeping, or waiting in line at the bank. Most of my ideas come by way of the characters, and then it goes from there.

Interview with Chela Prizeon from When Copper Suns Fall


Today I have a very special guest with me. I have Chela Prizeon, who is from a different would than ours. This is a world created by KaSonndra Leigh, in her book When Copper Suns Fall. If you were wondering who that is, read on!

Chela Prizeon Bio

My name is Chela Prizeon. I’m fifteen-years-old and I live in Castle Hayne, the official name for Hill Borough #1. I have a twin brother, Micah, and two best friends, Jalen and Alexa. We call ourselves the Bermuda Three. Why? Alexa explained it best: tick one of us off, and the other two will make you disappear. I live 55 years into the future. My life is…strange. The government decides who we date, who we kiss. Eventually, they’ll decide who I’ll marry too. My brother is in a coma. He has been that way for almost a year. I will find out what really happened to him. I know the fallen ones had something to do with it. And I intend to find out why.

Interview with Chela Prizeon

from When Copper Suns Fall

Welcome Chela. For those readers who are not familiar with your story, can you give us a little background about yourself?

Thank you, Ritesh. I’m so excited to be here. And I love your name, btw. It’s so cool. Okay, now the background stuff. Well, um I’m fifteen. But I’ll turn sixteen on October 21st. I’m pretty average, I guess. I have two best best friends: a girl named Lexa and a guy named Jalen. We call ourselves the Bermuda Threes. I go to a third-tier school called Ashley George. It’s kind of like what you would call high school. But I won’t get the chance to go this year because I’ve been assigned to Minders Camp.  That’s where kids who get carded for misbehaving go. Kind of like detention, I guess.  But I’ll talk about that in a bit. I live with my father, stepmother, and her daughter, Audrina. I have a twin brother, too. But…well, he’s sick. So he hasn’t been with us for over a year now. He has a virus that doesn’t usually affect people in Castle Hayne. Only outcasts usually get sick, the people that live  in the Dim Cities outside the Great Wall.

Interview with Kelsey Miller, Author of Retribution


Today, I have with me author Kelsey Miller. She has started on the path of being self published at a very young age and I can see her doing great things.

This is a really fun interview, and I loved some of her answers! So, without much delay, lets just right in!

Interview with Kelsey Miller,

Author of Retribution

Lets start with a question I always ask first. Describe your book and what genre would you classify it into?

My book is a paranormal thriller for young adults. It’s about a vampire who hates being a vampire and a werewolf who shifts into his human form when he’s around her.

How did you come up with the idea for the book?

It’s funny, really. Somehow the topic of vampires wormed its way into my mind. I began thinking of all the vampire characters I had read who drank blood, even ones that only drank animal blood (I think you know which one I’m talking about). Yet, I had never come across a vampire who hated being one. And from there the idea snowballed.

Interview with Justice from The Fallen One by Lenore Wolfe


JUSTICE, WHO IS THE PRINCE OF FIRE

Justice was cloaked with Fae glamour at a young age to keep the world from knowing his secret. He is the Prince of Fire–one of the rare Starborne of the Jaguar People. When he and his sisters were very young, their parents became side-tracked, suddenly not paying the attention to their kids that they had been. But the kids didn’t learn why for many more years to come….

At 14, Justice is forced to shape-shift, much too young to handle such a power. After that, he becomes hunted–until he becomes the hunter.

They learn that the ancient vamp, Constantine, is the one hunting them. He wants control of all the humans think they control. He wants the humans period. And he wants the Jaguar People, the ancient vamps and Fae armies brought to his feet–to heed his rule. Most of all, he most certainly does NOT want to follow the laws of ancient vamps–the ones who were NOT turned–but learned how to live once more–through the intake of life giving blood.

Constantine has learned to rule through the fighting–and the winning–of many battles. He is a legend who believes he is not bound by ancient law.

Justice and Dracon, who is the Prince of Air, the Prince of Water and the Prince of Earth, as well as the Sisters of Three, and Justice’s own sisters–along with the Alliance and Fae armies–must fight Constantine and his rogue factions of vamps to save Mother Earth from the certain destruction of Constantine’s rule.
