Shinobi, Book One: Concealed in Shadows
by Sessha Batto | Interview

Q: From where did you draw the inspiration for the Shinobi series?
I've studied martial arts and swordsmanship for many years, and I've always been intrigued by the conflict inherent in the martial code of honor. To me, ninja are the epitome of this conflict, assassins and spies who are loyal to their clans to the death. Trained to set aside their emotions, yet carrying...
A Fateful Wind
by Suzette Stone | Interview

Q: Where did you draw inspiration for A FATEFUL WIND?
I grew up in a tiny village on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, UK. As a child we would play around a defunct tin mine - dangerous I know - and I was always intrigued by the stories I would hear of miners leaving behind their families to seek their fortunes in Australia, America and Mexico. The village I lived...
Strong Arms of the Law
by Cerise DeLand | Interview

Q: STRONG ARMS OF THE LAW is a VERY hot read. There's no question about that, but it also has a great plot and interesting story. How did you come up with the idea for it?
Since moving to Texas, I have learned so much about this state and the people who live here. Because I grew up and lived always in large cities on the East Coast of the States as well as in Japan, I came to Texas very green about the West. But once here, I loved it. The people are innately funny. You...
Where There's Smoke
by Erosa Knowles | Interview

Q: What's this series all about? Please give us an overview. What is the central theme that binds all the books together?
The Men of 3X Construction series deals with life after prison, and how three men turned their lives around by taking classes in Michigan's Prison Build program. These men overcome great odds to own and operate a successful business, but someone is trying to ruin all their hard work. Each partner deals...
Absolution
by LJ DeLeon | Interview

Q: What is your Warriors for Light series all about? What is the common thing that binds all the books in this series?
The books in the series are about the eternal battle between good and evil, how most times life and the choices offered are shades of gray, and in each story how the brightest light, the one thing that heals wounds to the soul, is love. Without love, lust for power flourishes. With love, darkness is...
Witches of East End
by Melissa De La Cruz | Interview

Q: You made your name as a Young Adult books author, so what gave you the inspiration to write a series for adults? Where did the inspiration for WITCHES OF EAST END come from?
I wanted to write about a family of women, I wanted to write about sisters, about having a complicated relationship with your mother, and once I realized it was very girl-centric, of course they had to be witches. I did some research on Gardiner Island, which is the oldest independently owned property...
Burning for You
by KT Grant | Interview

Q: What is the inspiration for your latest release, BURNING FOR YOU?
I love the idea of opposites attracting and thought what would happen if a somewhat older college dean fell for a hotel janitor? Would they be able to connect not just sexually but mentally? The fun was writing these two men and helping them find a common ground together, which leads them to falling...
Desire and Deception
by Sharon Buchbinder | Interview

Q: What inspired this story?
In writing DESIRE AND DECEPTION, I wanted to tell a sexy suspenseful tale about smart, powerful women and the men who love them. I wrote about society's expectations of what a woman should be versus what a woman wants to be. And since the standing advice to writers is to "write what you know," I then...
Forged in Fire
by Sara Brookes | Interview

Q: Now, our interest is piqued and we're excited to learn more! I certainly am! So, what is your Rebirth series all about? What is the common thing that binds all the books in this series?
Basically it all boils down to the age-old struggle of good vs evil. But I take it one step further. After all, who decides good people are good and bad people are bad? The line is easy to blur and my characters sometimes have to step over lines they wouldn't ordinarily. It's necessary to sometimes...
Kiss of Snow
by Nalini Singh | Interview

Q: The Psy-Changeling series is so original. I've never seen anything like it. How did you come up with the idea?
I've always loved shapeshifter stories - but I disagreed with how shifting was often portrayed as a painful or unwanted experience. I thought it would be fantastic to be able to shift into another form! I've also always been interested in psychic abilities like telepathy and psychometry, but one day,...
The Hambledown Dream
by Dean Mayes | Interview

Q: What inspired you to write this story?
THE HAMBLEDOWN DREAM was a simple idea I had about eight years ago when I was working on another, much different story. Back then, it was a "what if?" fable, the notion of a good and kind young man dying but being reincarnated into the body of another young man who is duplicitous and mean. I actually...
Betrayal's Shadow
by KH LeMoyne | Interview

Q: BETRAYAL'S SHADOW looks to be an awesome start to a new series, the Guardians of Eden. What is the series about? What inspired your ideas for this series?
I've often wondered if we humans haven't had help at critical times in our development. Out of those musings the Guardians of Eden was born. They are a race originated in the same Eden as Adam and Eve. They are bound in a covenant to ensure the evolution of mankind, each Guardian child releasing the...
Lifestyles of the Fey and Dangerous
by Danica Avet | Interview

Q: What is the inspiration for The Veil series?
I've always been a "what if" person. What if there were supernatural beings living and working right beside us (being humans for all of you supernatural beings) and we never knew? That's where the idea came from and I sort of just ran with it. Of course, I'm still not convinced that this is fictional....
