NJ Walters, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.

QUICK

Wolf in her Soul by your NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRDo you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I write romance, but within that genre, I’ve written paranormal, sci-fi/fantasy, and contemporary. Romance is such an open and diverse genre that allows me to explore pretty much anything I want. I love it.
How do you come up with ideas?
Ideas come from everywhere—an overhear snippet of conversation, an online quiz, a magazine article, a television show. Many times the ideas come not from one source but a combination of several.
The idea for my Hades’ Carnival series came from an online quiz about which carnival ride I was most like (a carousel). I started wondering about carousel animals and asking what if questions. What if they were really immoral warriors trapped by a curse? What if there was a special woman who could set them free? That idea became a seven book series.
My Salvation Pack series came from a random thought. What if five men separated from their pack and started their own? Why would they leave? What would be the consequences of their actions?
The possibilities are limitless.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Just doing it. I’m a pantser and not a plotter so I love to watch my characters’ stories come to life. I love creating worlds and stories. It’s such a gift. I’ve always said I feel as though I’m just taking dictation. All I have to do is show up and let my characters do all the work.
When did you write your first book?
I wrote my first book back in 1995. I’d always been a huge reader and decided one day that I could write a book. I wrote two actually, tried to find a home for them, and failed. I did get some great feedback from some wonderful editors who took the time to point out some problems with my writing technique. I put the stories away and forgot about writing until late 2003 when I started another book in response to an online contest. I didn’t place in the contest, but the book Annabelle Lee (recently rereleased as Uncovering Annabelle) was published in 2004. And the first two books I wrote—Discovering Dani and The Way Home—were eventually published as well.

Tell us about Wolf in her Soul
Detective Reece Gallagher has spent the last decade working as a cop in Chicago so he can search for her—the red-haired woman who haunts his dreams. He’s just about ready to give up and go home to Salvation, North Carolina, when he finally finds her. But she’s the assault victim on a case he’s working on, and there’s a full-blooded werewolf who wants her dead. He needs to keep her safe and convince her she’s his mate.
Hannah Burdette has a secret she’s never told anyone. But there is someone who knows who—or rather, what—she is. There’s a stalker after her who plans to rid the world of her “impure” blood. When the cop she meets turns out to be a werewolf and claims she doesn’t have to be alone anymore, she’s wary. But where better to hide from a bloodthirsty hunter than in the middle of North Carolina with the security of a pack surrounding her?

Blood Moon by Livia Quinn @liviaquinn #RLFblog #paranormalToday’s featured book is Blood Moon, a paranormal by Livia Quinn.

Blood Moon, book 6 in the Destiny Paramortals is available now in the Moonlight Magic Paranormal Collection for 99 cents along with 19 other novels.

She could destroy his world…or save it.

There’s a new supe in Destiny. She sauntered into the Moat of Morpheus, a redheaded violet-eyed warrior carrying a giant head-splitter of a sword and wielding it with magic. Her name was Cinder. River felt an immediate attraction as well as a lifting of the despair that had been his only companion for months. But it was short lived.

She was there to kill a dragonhunter and accused River of hiding the truth about him. Turns out, she was right. River had a secret and his own reasons for remaining quiet. If he couldn’t break free from the villain’s control, there would be devastating consequences for his family and ultimately, the other Paramortals.

After his sister and the dragon sheriff go missing, River and Cinder join forces. But history has a way of coming full circle and echoes from their past bring a shattering revelation about their Paramortal family and the dragonhunter’s true identity, a perspective neither of them could have anticipated. Can they forgive the past to overcome their common enemy or will the news tear their relationship and the Paramortals apart forever?

Ayla Ruse, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I write Romance. Within romance, my stories are varied. I’ve written contemporary, sci-fi, paranormal, and horror.
How do you come up with ideas?
Whew. From everywhere. Sometimes it can be a prompt from the publisher, sometimes a song. Sometimes, as I’m writing one story, I may shoot off left and find I’m taking notes on a completely unrelated but interesting storyline. The idea for my latest story, It’s In the Mix, came from a theme from another author wanting to create a multi-author series.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Being able to have the time to write. I lead a hectic life and snatching those few hours to write is my lifeline. It’s important to me to be able to lose myself in the characters, in the storyline. When I hit that roll, I lose track of time and place. My fingers fly over the keyboard, capturing dialogue flying between the characters as I let them tell their story. THIS is my happy place. Nothing about writing is more important.
When did you write your first book?
I like the distinction you made—first “book,” not first “story.” My first book was written over the course of two years (yikes!) and published soon thereafter by Totally Bound. That was in 2011.

FUN

Leather or lace? I’d wear leather and admire lace.
Black or red? Black
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton. Satin, although prettier, is simply too hot!
Ocean or mountains? Mountains.
City life or country life? Funny how we change in life. Ask me that twenty years ago and I’d have responded City in a heartbeat. Now, I crave the country life.
Party life or evening at home? A party is good from time to time, but I much prefer a cozy evening at home.
Dogs or cats? Cats (even though our family dog is totally my girl).
Tell us about It’s In the Mix (Wit and Wizardry Multi-Author #3)

Mix 1 part narrow minded fairy with 1 part human bachelor to get 2 parts love everlasting.

Aisling is not happy to be tending bar in a human pub. Her fairy aunt predicted she’d find love by the next full moon, and that means she should be back in Ireland — not in the middle of Massachusetts.

Despite the happy married lives of his friends, Daniel is content to remain a bachelor. After all, the pretty new bartender may want to come home with him. Why spoil that with a relationship?

Something might have happened on its own, but a mischievous pub owner slips each of them a Wit and Wizardry brew known to contain a powerful love potion. Before either can say a word, Aisling and Daniel find themselves tumbling headlong into love.

Unfortunately, all is not happily ever after. Aisling does not want to love a human, and Daniel believes he’s unfairly pressured her into being with him. When the pair settle down to breathe, can they discover something deeper to bind them, or will daylight make the heady effects of a potioned brew fade away?

Handed a historical romance at young age, Ayla Ruse fell in love with love and with happy endings. Having grown up living life tasting a little of this and a little of that has not changed this attitude, but it’s expanded her views. Love isn’t always happy and it isn’t always the way a person “thinks it should be.” Sometimes it’s outside the box, and it’s always a challenge. Ayla is a stay-at-home mother who, in cooler weather, loves being outdoors, reading, and exploring.

Kara James QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?

I write paranormal romance. Specifically shifters: merging werewolves and Rugby and dragon and other shifters with MMA.

How do you come up with ideas?

I think of a character first usually, then what if’s come next. For my Wolf Binding series, it was: What if a rugby teams goes off on holiday to the Transylvania Mountains and become werewolves? How would they cope and hide their secret from the world?

What is the single most important part of writing for you?

Discovery. I know the characters, the general idea of the storyline and how it will end, but not all the stuff in-between.

When did you write your first book?

Wolf Binding is my debut paranormal romance/ shifter book.

Kara James FUN

Is It True: Love and Mayhem by Luanna Stewart @luanna_stewart #RLFblog #historical romancePlay Is It True with today’s guest Luanna Stewart, author of Love and Mayhem, a Historical Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.
Sybil is happily on the shelf, tending to her sheep. But she fears she’ll depart this life without experiencing physical love, which she suspects is rather enjoyable. When her long-lost fiancé returns from sea, she decides he’s the lucky man who’ll receive her virginity.
Max is eager to return to his sugar plantation and has no intention of remaining long in London. However, he didn’t bargain on a wilful, pretty, exasperating spinster determined to take him to her bed.
He insists on marriage but she wants only his body. Her heart is not part of the deal. Unfortunately, love doesn’t always follow the rules.
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Genre: historical romance
Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I’ve written many books, and have previously published two full-length novels (one a romantic suspense and one an historical romance) and three novellas (contemporary romance).
this book is part of a series?
Yes, this is the first in a series. I’ve just contracted the second in the series, Love and Turmoil, and hope it will be out before the end of the year.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No, I can’t say that I lost sleep, but the characters and the plot were my constant companions until long after the book was finished. I’m considering writing a short story about Max and Sybil’s life a few years later because I want to visit with them again.
you did research for this book?
Oh, yes, lots and lots of research. That’s my favorite part of writing historical fiction. I especially enjoy searching for an obscure tidbit that I can include in the story.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Hm…not in the book exactly, but sheep are extremely important to Sybil. And there’s a question about fleas. Oh, and a very interesting conversation about fruit bats.
this book has more than one genre?
No, just historical romance.
you speak more than one language?
No, alas, I’ve lost most of my childhood French. As a Canadian, with French being the official second language, I was instructed in French from grade three thru grade 12. I remember enough to locate a bathroom or a library, LOL.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes, but only recently. We moved back to Nova Scotia a few months ago.
you love to read?
Yes! I can’t imagine not reading. I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I even belonged to a children’s book club and can remember my feeling of joy when I got home from school to find a new book in the mail.
you are never late?
I HATE being late and usually leave early to avoid it.
you love pizza?
Yes. Pretty much any topping except pineapple – I don’t understand that one at all.
you love sushi?
No. But I have to confess that I’ve never tried it, nor will I ever. I have a psychological block to the concept of eating raw fish, or any other type of raw animal protein.
you have a pet?
Yes, two cats: Mogget, a girl, and Bruno, a boy. She’s a princess and he’s a simple soul.
Where can we find your book online?

Stefan's Salvation by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRNJ Walters author of Stefan’s Salvation answers five easy questions.
Please tell us about yourself.
NJ Walters is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
That’s a tough one, because it depends on the age. I never really had a favorite that I kept over the years. I did save up my money and buy a pack of white chalk and an chalkboard eraser. I’d tape construction paper to my closet door and use it as a blackboard. (This was long before blackboard paint was readily available.) I’d spend hours pretending to be a teacher. I also saved up and bought a stamp pad and date stamp. (Today these things are easily obtained, but back in the early 70s, they were harder to come by.) I’d tape blank cards in the back of my books and play library.
What are your hobbies?
I read…a lot. No surprise there. I also enjoy going to the movies, specifically the afternoon matinee, as there are never that many people there at that time of day. I like to sit three rows back from the front. There is rarely anyone sitting in front of me, so it feels like my own private showing. I also love to explore thrift stores. You never know what you’re going to find.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I love reading romance. I especially enjoy paranormal, contemporary, and historical romance. But I also love to read spiritual and self-help books. I usually have a fiction and nonfiction book going at the same time.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
It really depends on the book. Some books need minimal research, while others need a whole lot more. Over the years, I’ve researched some pretty fun stuff from antique carnival rides (Hades’ Carnival series) to private planes (Drakon’s Promise). I’ve watched videos about Transylvania (Dalakis Passion series) and the Trans-Siberian Railroad (upcoming book), and spent hours looking at the tourist websites for various towns and cities. One of the fun things about writing is getting the opportunity to explore jobs I’ve never had and places I’ve never been. I get to go on an adventure.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
For Stefan, it would probably be Burn by the Cure. It’s from the movie The Crow and I love that song. Or possibly Highway to hell by AC/DC.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Candi Fox Social Media

Candi Fox, co-host of the wildly popular radio show Candi and Company with over 900 thousand listeners began her venture in the paranormal at the tender age of two, when she witnessed her first apparition. From that moment on the paranormal seemed to follow her. No matter where she moved, the house she lived in the house next door, or the house down the street always seemed to be haunted.

She often wondered if she drew the spirits to her. Little did she know that she was indeed a magnet of sorts. It wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she found people who could not only explain her gifts, but would also help her hone them. Armed with this new knowledge she began to openly explore hauntings and other paranormal phenomena.

Growing up in Indiana lent her the opportunity to explore many famous haunted places including the Hannah House, which was once part of the Underground Railroad. A little over two years ago she moved to Tulsa, OK and has began to explore the haunted landscape in a new state.

Candi lives with her husband, and furry children in Tulsa. She is passionate about the occult, saving and rehabilitating horses, horseback riding, magic, all things mystical and has her Reiki Mastery.

She uses her own paranormal experiences as well as her own life traumas to write from a grounded and realistic perspective about subjects that are hard to talk about and even harder to feel for yourself.

Andrea R Cooper Social Media

Andrea has always enjoyed creating characters and stories. But it wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels. She writes fantasy, paranormal, contemporary, and historical romance. Under the pen name, A.R. Cooper, she writes YA Fantasy. Her debut YA series is Shadow Bloodlines.
What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids (two boys and a girl).
Andrea writes fantasy, paranormal, historical, and romantic suspense.
She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.

Quest of a Warrior by Mary Morgan @m_morganauthor #RLFblog #Paranormal #RomanceMary Morgan, author of Quest of a Warrior, answers five easy questions.
Please tell us about yourself.
Award-winning Scottish paranormal romance author, Mary Morgan, resides in Northern California, with her own knight in shining armor. However, during her travels to Scotland, England, and Ireland, she left a part of her soul in one of these countries and vows to return.
Mary’s passion for books started at an early age along with an overactive imagination. She spent far too much time daydreaming and was told quite often to remove her head from the clouds. It wasn’t until the closure of Borders Books where Mary worked that she found her true calling–writing romance. Now, the worlds she created in her mind are coming to life within her stories.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
I love going to pubs, so it’s usually fish and chips or hamburger, a big salad and a Guinness.
Describe the perfect vacation.
Spending time anywhere in Scotland or Ireland. I was fortunate to visit the Orkney Islands, north of Scotland in June. I wandered through ancient ruins, stood on cliffs near the ocean, and soaked in the mystique of the land. Pure bliss! I’m longing to return.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I read in all genres, in particular, historical fiction and non-fiction. I’m fascinated with history. I blame it on James Michener. When I read “Hawaii” at seventeen, I became hooked on historical books. Currently, I’m reading “Victoria” by Daisy Goodwin.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
Everything—from historical books, travel magazines, world maps, and articles on the internet. Since my stories are based in Scotland and Ireland, I’m constantly searching out new and fascinating tidbits of knowledge. In addition, I’m a lover of Celtic mythology, so I enjoy reading about the legendary tales from these countries.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
The Celts by Enya
