Author Interview – Angela Brown

6:30 AM Posted by James Noel , No comments

How important do you think villains are in a story? I find villains to be just as important as the good guy. After all, a good guy isn’t much more than an actionless being if there’s no one to be good against lol!

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? Yes, I’m working on the sequel to Neverlove and am excited to bring it to readers soon.

Where do you see yourself in five years? Hopefully, five years from now, at this very time, I’ll be writing full time, gathering swag and preparing for a fantastic time at a writers/readers conference or doing a Q and A session with readers J

What are your current writing projects now? Along with the sequel to Neverlove, I’m also working on NEO Chronicles: Characters Revealed, a series of short stories/novellas about characters that will play a part in my Tapestry novel planned for 2014, a novel that will wrap up the NEO Chronicles and Shadow Jumpers.

Are you reading any interesting books at the moment? Oh yes, I loved Today Only by Derinda Love, really enjoyed Backworlds by M Pax and Delirium by Susan Kaye Quinn. I’m currently indulging my love of fantasy with Ocean of Dust by Graeme Ing.

Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why? I’ve been on an Indie author kick, really enjoying discovering new authors all the time…and with awesome writing. Susan Kaye Quinn, Heather McCorkle and Christine Fonseca have been my go-to authors. As for traditionally published, Robin LaFevers grabbed me with her assassin nuns. Seriously, assassin nuns? Wicked!!!

Do you have any advice for writers? Read, read, read! Become very familiar with your genre of interest and make sure to try other genres as well. You never know where the spark may strike J

Write, write, write! Don’t stop writing. You get better with practice, not without it.

Don’t rush to publish. Once you get with a publisher, you’ll have their deadlines to meet, something wholly different from writing as you feel like it. Even if you self-publish, once you gain the interest of readers, you’ll want to publish at a reasonable rate to maintain interest, which means you’ve got to work on sticking to your own deadlines.

Do you have any specific last thoughts that you want to say to your readers? I write stories that take seed in my wild imagination and flourish on my computer screen, stories I’d like to read myself. I hope that each reader can find something from me that they can enjoy. It’s every author’s pipe dream to have their work relished by every person that picks up their story. I’m no exception. I hope you’ll give my stories a try. Just maybe you’ll discover a fast read, a new book crush or a witty quote that sticks with you after the read is over. Most importantly, Thank you…each and everyone!

Providence, Rhode Island

Six. Whole. Months.
The longest time her mother stayed home in the last few years.
Enough time that a sense of security snuck into Abigail’s heart, lulled her mind into forgetfulness.
But the monster hadn’t forgotten.
So starts Abigail Bishop’s descent to the final low in her life. Seventeen doesn’t seem such a bad age to die.

For Basil Hines, perfection is the key to earning his parents’ love, especially his mother. He never suspected sharing this thought with a friend would bring hellish results.

Abigail’s rash decision, and failure to take her own life, leads her to V’Salicus Academy, a place to start anew, become a Cleanser, a guide to show lost souls the way to The Gates for Judgment. Basil ends up duty bound to hell, his soul gambled and lost to the Devourer, all for the price of a few words. As the devil’s newest Harvestor, Basil must steal lost souls to feed his new master’s constant craving.

In their new roles in life, love is forbidden, but when their paths cross, true love is what Abigail and Basil finally discover in each other. Can they hold tight to their love, or will duty trump all, leaving them both to a fate of Neverlove?
