Where There's Smoke
by Erosa Knowles
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...

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
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
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
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
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
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
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...
by KH LeMoyne
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
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....
Light the Fire
by Mary Manners
Q: What inspired you to write this story?
I have lost a child, and the healing process is long and oh, so difficult, even under the best of circumstances (if there is such a thing). Anyway, I really wanted to delve into the healing process for a young woman in the same situation who feels a tremendous amount of guilt, and bring her healing...
Torn Hearts, A Novel
by CaSondra Poulsen
Q: What inspired you to write the story of TORN HEARTS?
My grandmother inspired me. TORN HEARTS is dedicated to her. I was fortunate to grow up near her and have countless memories of times spent with her. She has left a lasting impression on me and shaped who I am as a woman. I miss her dearly. She was a fabulous woman. Much of the grandmother in...
by Leslie D. Soule
Q: What inspired you to write FALLENWOOD?
My stepfather passed away when I was nineteen years old and my mother went crazy and kicked my sisters and I out of the house. It was a very difficult time for me and I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I felt like I was fighting just to keep myself going and keep my head above water. So...
