About the Book

Title Lily
Genre Paranoral/Horror Romance
Author Xavier Axelson
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
What does one say when they realize their child is gone? Better
yet, what does one say when that child returns, but is different?
This is the question Pryor must ask himself after his daughter,
Lily, is dragged into the woods by a wolf and her body is never found. It isn’t
until he sees a wolf in the woods with eyes that resemble Lily’s that he feels hope.
And then something is whispered from deep within the woods, a promise for him to
see Lily again.
One day…
But which day and for how long?
And then Pryor meets Ned, a silversmith who brings out desires
that Pryor hasn’t felt in years and helps him hatch a plan to keep Lily with him.
Now the question isn’t about how much time Pryor will have with
Lily, it’s about how far he’ll go to keep her with him.

How do you come up with ideas?
The ideas come up with me. But I am inspired by the world around me; nature, creation, destruction and magic.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Being true to my characters, I feel obligated to tell their story to the best of my ability.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
The fact that I learn something every time I write.
Where do you start when writing? Research, plotting, outline, or…?
I don’t really know but I do know it is never plotting or an outline. It’s usually a bolt from the blue kind of thing.
What did you learn from writing your first book? 
I learned about my dedication to my work.
Would you consider self publishing?
I don’t think so.
How many hours a day to you spend writing?
Is your muse demanding?
Does fire burn? Demanding doesn’t begin to describe it.
Are your stories plot or character driven?
What is the craziest thing you did as a kid, and would it ever end up in a book?
Oye, I’m not sure, I was a pretty crazy kid. I think the non-crazy things could go in a book, though it would be a short story.
What are some jobs you’ve done that would end up in a book?
A friend of mine just told me I needed to write a book about my careers in porn and the adult world. My response: BORING so I doubt it.
If I was a first time reader of your books, which one would you recommend I start with and why?

What do you hope readers take with them after reading your work?
