Okay, so far in the spooky season we’ve had vampires…..witches….spooky pictures. We’ve had an author whose book is hotter than hell, Nikkii Dee Houston, we’ve had an author whose book is paranormal. We’ve even had some disgusting mouldy cheese and a somewhat irate lady Fury. We’ve had giveaways…..still on by the way… https://www.facebook.com/etopiapress
here’s the latest books up for grabs
And as you can see today, it may not be lions and tigers and bears oh my, I do have the author of a suitably mystical tale about a wicked Vampire, a wild-child Mage, and a playboy Elemental. I also have one mega patient author, the wonderful Scarlett Dawn who has probably forgotten she wrote the book by now, the backlog of blogs I have been clearing since I got word that His Judas Bride was coming out. No. I am going to resist showing you my fav picture ..Greeting Teeny and say instead here she is, the better late than never Scarlett Dawn.
Scarlett. I love that you asked this! It’s the first time someone has! Is Scarlett Dawn my real name? No. Not all of it anyway. I’ll let you guess which one is real!!
Shey. Don’t tempt me to poll it. Fortunately I am also dying to ask about your book King Hall. The title especially has got me wondering.
When I started writing this series a few years ago, the name came naturally to me. Right from the start. That might be because Lily, the main female character, starts out sitting in a classroom. The contrast is that she’s in a Sex Education class at the time, a very “normal” course for such a high-status location.
Shey. But of course. Can you tell us a bit about the story itself —-without giving too much away of course.-
Scarlett. Okay…. I’ll put it this way…a playoff/add on to each word, definition, and then a sentence.
One word – Differences
Two words – Mysticals, Commoners
Definition – Misbehaving Mysticals, Skittish Commoners
One sentence – It’s the dawn of a new age.
Shey. Good… No spoilers… Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Scarlett. I wrote when I was in my teens. Loved it. Adored it. Cherished it. Life happened, marriage and babies. Loving family. My writing was put on hold. I got a “real” job in accounting. Time passed. I saw the movie Twilight. Found out it was actually a book. Started reading. And reading. More reading.
Oh…hello…I wanted to write. It all came back to me. I’ve been writing ever since (still working full-time and my three children are teenagers). My plate is full. I love it.
Shey. What inspired you on your journey?
Scarlett. For me, it’s not complicated. Music and my own imagination are my inspiration. That…and a tree. *ahem* Really. I had a fabulous idea for a novel just the other day from passing the most beautiful, lush tree on my way to work. I’m currently writing that one, while line editing book two of The Forever Evermore Series.
Shey. How do you find Escape Publishing?
Scarlett. Kate Cuthbert, the Managing Editor, at Escape Publishing was doing a blog tour at the time. I read more than one of the blogs. Decided she would be a great fit. I sent my submission off, and here I am!
Shey. Any advice you would give aspiring writers?
Scarlett. Don’t give up. Write what you want to write, what is driving you. Not what is the current trend. Your story will be better for it, and you’ll stay true to yourself. Write for the love of it.
Shey. Pretty sound advice.
Hot or cold?
Long or short?
Thick or thin
Um…thick…what exactly are we talking about here? LMAO!
Scarlett, you crack me up. Dish
Plate? A colorful one, perhaps?
The beach. Yum.

The Host – my new favorite movie
A fresh, meaty, sink-your-teeth-in-and-hold-on-tight new adult fantasy series kicks off with King Hall…
Lily Ruckler is adept at one thing: survival. Born a Mystical hybrid, her mere existence is forbidden, but her nightmare is only about to start. Fluke,happenstance, and a deep personal loss finds Lily deeply entrenched with those who would destroy her simply for existing — The Mystical Kings. Being named future Queen of the
Shifters shoves Lily into the spotlight, making her one of the most visible Mysticals in the world. But with risk comes a certain solace — her burgeoning
friendships with the other three Rulers: a wicked Vampire, a wild-child Mage, and a playboy Elemental. Backed by their faith and trust, Lily begins to relax nto her new life.
Then chaos erupts as the fragile peace between Commoners and Mysticals is broken, and suddenly Lily realises the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the Revolution.
