Q: Welcome to The Writer's Life!  Now that your book has been published, we’d love to find out more about the process.  Can we begin by having you take us to the beginning?  When did you come up with the idea to write your book?

The idea for the series started as a tiny little 1400 word short story Taryn had written almost 12 years ago. An editor read the story and said it should be published. So Taryn sent it to her friend Gabriella and asked her if she would read and edit it. Gabriella did just that, but then her muse inspired her. We talked on the phone and before we realized, Carnal Twilight grew to over 4k and became the prequel to the Crimson Realm Chronicles and book 1, In Search of Pride. Gabriella Bradley and Taryn are now working on books 6 and 7 of the series.

Q: How hard was it to write a book like this and do you have any tips that you could pass on which would make the journey easier for other writers?

We can’t say that it has been hard to write the series. Gabriella and Taryn really mesh as writing partners. Carnal Twilight was published in June of 2017. We now have 5 books completed in the series and much more to come, including a series spin-off.  It has been an exciting trip into the world Gabriella and Taryn have created together and we look forward to writing many more books!

My advice is to write what fascinates you. Write what you see and dream. Connect with your characters. See the world they live in through their eyes, feel what they feel, and just set your muse free. And if you’re writing with a partner, get on the phone and talk often. We discuss our plots on a daily basis.

Q: Who is your publisher and how did you find them or did you self-publish?

We are published through eXtasy Books. They have been around since 2002 and are a stable company in this industry. Gabriella Bradley, has been published with them since they were conceived. They are wonderful to work with and we have really enjoyed the experience.

Q: Is there anything that surprised you about getting your first book published?

We were surprised by how easy our publisher made the process, from edits, proofing, and cover art, to the actual release day of each book. Everything has run so smoothly with each book we have completed.

Q: What other books are you working on and when will they be published?

We have a pretty full schedule for the Crimson Realm Chronicles

Carnal Twilight released in June 2017
In Search Of Pride released in September 2017
The Dragon’s Lion released in November 2017
Sword of Betrayal releases in January 2018
Sword of Judgement releases in March 2018
Testing the Crown releases in May 2018
Shard in the Mirror is in progress and should release in July 2018
Initiation Genesis is in progress and should release in September 2018


Q: What’s one fact about your book that would surprise people?

Things may not always be what they seem and anything is possible.

Q: Finally, what message are you trying to get across with your book?

You are accepted for who you are, no matter where you came from, what you look like, or the shadows of your past.

Q: Thank you again for this interview!  Do you have any final words?

We hope readers will enjoy the world we have created. If readers like shapeshifters, sorcery, magick, fantasy, science fiction, mixed with people from Earth, they won’t be disappointed!
