Today I've got an interview with Mary Parker, the author of The Awakening of Leeowyn Blake!
The Romance Bookie: Describe The Awakening of Leeowyn Blake: The Kahl'Nar Saga #1 in 2-3 sentences.
Mary Parker: A girl caught in a destiny bigger than she can imagine, and finding out if she's got what it takes to literally save the world. Horror, fantasy, romance and a bit of comedy all play a role in making this a unique story.
TRB: How did you come up with the concept? Any inspirations?
MP: The character of Leeowyn has been with me since I was a kid, but the story itself was partly from a dream I had, and partly just me sitting in front of the computer and seeing what happened. I really didn’t have a set story in mind when I sat down to write it.
TRB: What does "Kahl'Nar" mean?
MP: That hasn’t been revealed yet. You'll find out! ;)
TRB: What is your favorite book/author of all time?
MP: I don't know that I could pick one favorite. I just love great storytellers. To name a few: Ray Bradbury, George R R Martin, and J K Rowling.
TRB: How long have you been writing?
MP: Since I could put a pencil to paper.
TRB: What do you prefer: Hard copies or ebooks? Why? :)
MP: Hard copies. I love the feeling of holding a book, the smell of the pages, and just the sense I get when flipping through a good book.
TRB: Any advice for aspiring writers?
MP: Never stop writing or reading. Keep a notebook near you and write down any idea you have for a story. You never know, you may sit down to write a story about a girl living on the beach and four months later have a novel on your hands.
You can get your copy of The Awakening of Leeowyn Blake on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble! :)
And I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! :)
