THE NORU: BLUE ROSE Rose by Lola StVil

  About “The Noru: Blue Rose“ The last thing I see before I close my eyes are his silver wings coming toward me. He lifts me up and takes me in his arms. While demons hurl fireballs at us from every direction, I study his face. I realize he doesn’t want me to live; he needs me to. It’s as if his whole existence depends on it… The Noru series in order: Book 1: Blue Rose Book 2: Last Akon Book 3: Fall Of The Chosen About Lola StVil Lola was seven when she first came to this country from Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

The Summer of Curveballs

It’s…September? I keep looking at the calendar to confirm that the summer is really over. I guess the gentle fall of the first leaves, the shorter days, and the perfect weather (by D.C. standards) should be proof enough, but neither my eyes nor my mind wants to believe it. Where did summer go? I ask myself as I sit at my desk, my fingers aching from a lack of keyboard exercise. The best analogy I can think of for the place in which I find myself is this: Have you ever carefully plotted a novel, analyzed the characters, the settings, the conflict and resolution, only to find, when your fingers hit the keys, that the characters had other ideas? And what had been a great idea for a new story had morphed – at lightning speed –  into something you had never considered as the right path to creat...

Supernatural Author Micheal Rivers Interview

Last time IndieBookWeek.com checked in with you, Micheal, you were working on Verliege plus six other new manuscripts. Six! Which of those books have been published? Have you ventured into any new writing territory since then? First, let me congratulate you on your new site! Verliege and Appalachia Mountain Folklore were released. Thanks to the readers, I am proud to say Verliege was voted 2012 Supernatural Book of the Year by Turning the Pages. The other books are still in the works and coming along nicely. I have one that is out of my genre and is based on an actual person. Needless to say names and places have been substituted to protect him and any others involved in his ventures. I think the readers will find it very interesting. How have your social media habits evolved or changed ov...

Author Interview: Claudia LeFeve

BIO: Claudia Lefeve was born and raised in the Gulf Coast border town of Brownsville, Texas; a curious place where folks see curanderas in lieu of shrinks, tortillas are served at every meal, and even gringos speak Spanish. PARALLEL, the first book in The Travelers series, is her debut YA speculative novel. She currently resides in Northern Virginia with her husband and two pugs. Website and blog:  www.claudialefeve.com Twitter ID:  @claudialefeve Goodreads:  Claudia LeFeve Q: Welcome, Claudia! Thanks for being here today. What is your genre? Why did you choose it? CL: For me, discovering the ‘what ifs’ is what reading is all about, so I guess my writing can best be described as speculative fiction. I enjoy writing horror and paranormal, with just a dash of sci-fi (without bein...

Author Interview: Pamela Turner

The interview series with members of my Twitter community continues with author Pamela Turner. Enjoy! Bio: The Shadow aspect of the human condition fascinates me. A former Christian turned atheist, I find myself examining the dark side of human nature and what compels people to commit deeds we consider evil. My characters are often those who are obsessed with control or vengeance. Perhaps this is a response to my childhood and growing up with a controlling father. After all, isn’t writing a type of  therapy and an inexpensive one at that? But I digress. Early writing is almost always obviously emotive, drawing on the author’s lack of subtlety. But even then my themes were dark and foreshadowed what I would write today. Of course, like many authors, I’ve held different jobs: freelance magaz...

Author Interview: Emma Meade

The interview series with members of my Twitter community continues with author Emma Meade. Enjoy! Blog: emmameade.comTwitter: @emmameade83Facebook: Author PageBook Trailer: Night Sighs Q: What is your genre? Why did you choose it? EM: Paranormal.  I grew up devouring/reading Point Horror back in the 90s. As a young teenager I moved onto Stephen King’s The Stand and that was it for me.

Q: Tel...

Author Interview: LJ DeLeon

The interview series with authors in my Twitter community continues with LJ DeLeon. Happy reading! LJ’s Website: www.ljdeleon.comWarriors Website & Blog: www.warriorsforlight.comTwitter: @LJ_DeLeonFacebook: LJ DeLeon Fan page Q: What is your genre? Why did you choose it? LJ:  I combine three genres—action adventure, paranormal and urban fantasy romance. Given the blending of genres these days, I’m not sure what is paranormal versus urban fantasy anymore. Publishers rename genres to fit what’s selling or is hot now, so I’d say I write both with a heavy dose of action adventure. Q: How many books have you published? Legacy published, self-published, or a combination? LJ:  I’m a combination and write under three names. I write as LJ DeLeon under my real name (Linda Jo DeLeon—maiden name) ...
