Interview with D.C. Stone!

Needless to say, first thing in the morning I got my claws on the novel “Feral Craving” by my bestest friend and talented author D.C. Stone! *happy dancing* AND I’ve had the privilege of asking her a few questions, so here goes:

Hey, *beaming* Tell me what your story is about.

Feral Craving is book one of a series I deemed The Justice Demons.  Justice Demons, you ask?  Yes, it’s a paranormal romance, where a group of Special Forces members find out they aren’t exactly human, and have been created by a Goddess to help ward of the battle of good and evil.  Their sole job, is to protect the world, keep things in balance, much as they did in the military.  Within Feral Craving, the first member finds his mate, someone he ran from nine years ago, thinking he wasn’t good enough to have her.  He wanted her life to be happy, and without doubts, something that he isn’t in shortage of. Needless to say, while he’s been gone, she hasn’t had said happiness, and things have changed…

What inspired you to write it?

Hell, well I have always been a huge paranormal romance fan, but today there are so many books about werewolves and vampires.  I wanted to do something fresh for the market, give the readers something more to grab their attention.  I told my love of the military, along with my day to day job, and mixed, blended for two minutes, then came up with this idea.

What do you hope readers will love about it?

This was the very first full length novel I wrote, so I’m curious to see how it will be received.  I hope the readers will love that it isn’t just another romance out on the market.  My guys, when developed, are very real and it’s not all peaches and cream, in fact, in some instances, it’s a bit harsh.  But it’s very close to real life.

So if a movie were made, which actors would you pick for your characters?

Oh geesh, nothing hard mind you! For Bari I’d have to choose Joe Manganiello. That man’s looks are Bari to a T. For Mackenzie, I’d have to say a dark haired Scarlette Johansson.

What I find interesting is that you write several genres. Which is your favorite?

Romantic Suspense is my down-right, all-time favorite.  Not that I don’t enjoy writing erotic romance or paranormal.  But there is something said about digging into a plot that gets so thick, that not only are your character’s engulfed in it, but so are you, as the creator.

What book will you always read again, and why?

The MacKinnon Ranger series by Pamela Clare.  Actually anything of hers I would. She’s been such an inspiration for so long, between her working full time AND writing AND being a mother, there is no better role model for an author than this best selling one who manages to ensnare you each and every damn time.

So who ensnared you as a child, which stories did you like to read?

*cringes*  Would you kill me if I said I hated to read?  Now? You won’t ever find me without my Nook, but I never really liked to read as a child and actually fell in love with books only five years ago.

Okay – one last, easy question: who’s your biggest fan?

LOL, you?  *winks*

No kidding… 🙂

Interview with Tina Pollick!

So Tina, I’m all excited about your book “Gabriel” and want to ask you a few questions.

To start off, tell me what the story is about.

When demons sunder ancient bonds, a love-match between a valiant archangel and a selfless nurse brings humanity’s last hope — but demon-taint may destroy them both. The prison the archangels have guarded, housed deep within the earth is destroyed, releasing Kematians (demons) to feed upon humanity. The angels are losing the battle again as the Kematians ability to regenerate hampers the angel’s ability to destroy them. Gabriel is stabbed by an Angel Killing Sword; he’s accepted his fate that he will die; only to be revived by Calla’s ability to heal. Calla Stevens, RN, tries to find who or what is killing the victims that are coming into the ER, only to be infected herself when she comes face-to-face with the Kematians. Calla has saved Gabriel once, is she’s willing to trade her life for his this time? Archangel Gabriel struggles with new emotions as he discovers Calla is his soul mate. He strives to defend humanity, with the assistance of his brother Archangel Michael and new human friends. Gabriel will have to choose whether he will live or die when his future with Calla is destroyed.

What was your inspiration?

*laughs* I wanted to write a book, I had the time to do it so I did. I need to invent a better story for this question. I wish I had a dream or something really cool to explain how GABRIEL came to be, but I don’t.

What do you hope readers will love about your story?

Great question. It’s a paranormal romance, but it has a lot of action too. I hope readers will love the characters as much as I do. It was a lot of fun telling their story.

If a movie were made, which actors would you pick for your characters?

I’ve avoided this question like the plague, but I’ll answer it for you. 🙂 For Gabriel, Christian Bale and Calla Reese Witherspoon.

If you could write another genre, which would you choose?

I’m going to give YA a shot this Spring. I’m not a big YA fan, but I have a teen who’s dying to read something I wrote. Since my paranormal romance stories have sex scenes she can’t read it.

What is your all-time favorite book, and why?

To Kill A Mockinbird. It was the first ‘big’ book I read in elementary. I was so proud of myself. And then we did an analysis so not only did I read it, but I understood it too.

Who was your hero as a child?

My grandpa. I called him pee-paw. He could do anything and he was bigger than life when I was a kid. His smile light up a room and he had the best sense of humor.

Who’s your biggest fan?

My husband and kids. If that ever changes then I’ll need to think about doing something else.

Thanks for having me! XOXO, tina

Thank YOU Tina, you’re an inspiration to all those striving to get their story out there.
