Lizzy Bequin Sit for an Author Interview

Lizzy Bequin Author Interview


 
Gina: Why did you become an author?
Lizzy: I’ve always loved telling stories ever since I was very young. One of the things I remember most clearly is making up funny ghost stories at a sleepover. But it’s only been recently that I decided to take the plunge and start publishing. I think it was just a matter of finally getting enough confidence to put my stories out there.
Gina: What genre of books do you like to write?
Lizzy: I write science fiction romance. My current series Primal Alphas is an omegaverse story, but it’s a slightly different twist on that genre. For my next series, I’m going to delve into alien warrior romance with a slightly dark edge to it. I’m super excited to get started on that series.
Gina: What is your inspiration for the current book or series you are writing?
Lizzy: Oh, this is funny! So, the first two books in this series take place concurrently. For the third book I knew that I wanted to do something that took place years later. And I also knew that I wanted it to involve a young woman whose origins have been hidden from her by her parents, and all of that past comes to light when she encounters an alpha male. But when I first started writing the story, it was going in a totally different direction from how the finished book turned out.
At first, for some reason the story wasn’t quite clicking. Then one night, I had this very frightening dream that I was being chased by these men in suits who were assassins. It was scary, but after I woke up, it was also kind of exciting. It was one of those dreams that just sticks with you very clearly after you wake up. And so after that, I backed way up, started the story again with the gruff and aggressive but also oddly protective alpha male as a kidnapper, and the story just flowed from there.
Gina: Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Lizzy: My natural tendency is to plot, but recently I’ve been trying to write by the seat of my pants. Obviously a lot of writers are very successful as plotters, but personally I think it sometimes held me back. Often I would outline a story but then struggle to muster the interest to write the darn thing. For me, it feels like whenever I put something into writing on the page, whether it’s notes, outlining, or the actual story itself, it becomes calcified, and I get locked into one way of thinking about the story. So I like the flexibility and also the excitement that pantsing allows me. It’s frightening but also exciting not knowing exactly what’s coming around the bend.
Gina: Do you have any quirks or habits when you’re writing?
Lizzy: Well, I don’t know if it’s a quirk, but I’ve got to have my can of La Croix sparkling water to sip on while I write. By the end of the day I always have a nice little pyramid of empty cans going. Tangerine is my fave, but I like to mix it up.
Gina: Have you had any setbacks becoming an author yourself?
Lizzy: You know, I haven’t really had any external setbacks. All of my setbacks have come from myself. The author Dean Wesley Smith talks a lot about that critical voice inside every writer’s head that tries to stop you from writing. I listened to that voice too much, and it either kept me from writing or it kept me from publishing what I had written.
Gina: What advice would you give to someone who would like to become a writer?
Lizzy: To me, the biggest thing is silencing that critical voice we were just talking about. These days I picture my critical voice as a creepy little Gollum creature--seriously, I literally do this--and whenever it starts creeping into my mind, telling me that my book is dumb, that people are going to hate it, that I’m not as good a writer as so-and-so, that’s when I take out my imaginary barbed-wire baseball bat like Negan from The Walking Dead and beat that stupid critical voice into submission until it slinks away again. (Please don’t tell my therapist about any of that!). Seriously though, I think that’s the number one thing when it comes to any creative endeavor that involves putting yourself out there and putting your ego at risk. You have to be absolutely brutal when it comes to fighting that critical voice, otherwise it will silence you. Don’t let that happen.
Gina: What is some of the best advice or inspiration you have received from another author?
Lizzy: So I heard this from many different authors, but it took me a long time to finally listen. The advice was to go to bed early, wake up early, and start writing first thing in the morning. My natural inclination is to be a night owl, and left to my own devices, I would stay up until the sun comes up with my nose in my Kindle. But now I force myself to go to bed at nine and get up at five. As hard as it is sometimes, my brain loves me for it. So my advice to all the night owl writers out there: just consider giving it a try for a few weeks.
Gina: What goals have you set for yourself in the future?
Lizzy: Well, writing is still a part-time gig for me--or maybe it’s better to say that it’s my second full-time gig! I still have a day job with an education technology company. I like my day job, but I love writing, so my goal is to be able to do it truly full time within the near future.
Gina: How do you want readers to see your work?
Lizzy: Well, personally I read novels to feel something, you know? I guess that’s why people do just about everything, whether it’s drinking or playing sports or listening to music or whatever. I love to read all kinds of books, not just romance but also horror, thrillers, all kinds of stuff. So ultimately I want to make my readers feel intense emotions. I want them to feel excited, nervous, scared, and happy along with the characters. And I hope my books make my readers feel just a teensy bit uncomfortable, (but in a good way).
Gina: What should a reader expect to see from your next novel?
Lizzy: For this third book, Primal Needs, I took everything from the first two books--lots and lots of steam and lots of action and adventure--and just turned it up to eleven. This book is quite a bit longer than the first two, a little bit darker, and it’s got even more twists and turns along the way as the main characters go from a very antagonistic relationship to finally falling in love and becoming mates.
Gina: Is there anything you would like to share with your readers?
Lizzy: A great big thank you! Without readers, there would be no reason to write, you know? I’ve gotten a lot of awesome feedback from readers, and it’s just really gratifying. I love to hear from my readers too, so don’t be afraid to shoot me an email at lizzybequinauthor@gmail.com.

Genie Hermoso is interviewing with us today!

 
Gina: Why did you become an author?
Genie: I’ve always wanted to write. When I was 16 years old I produced my first self-published book using my home printer and distributed it to my friends and family. When I was in college, I submitted a short story to the college magazine and it got printed. I took Master’s in English Literature after college. I’ve started blogging in 2006. I also did freelance writing work in 2011-2012.
Gina: What genre of books do you like to write?
Genie: I write romantic comedies but there are books finished in my head that are sci-fi and suspense. I just have to write those stories down. But my books for 2020 are mostly romantic comedies.
Gina: What is your inspiration for the current book or series you are writing?
Genie: I have a series, Love in the Time of the Trump Era which was inspired by my past relationship. The guy I had been in a long-term relationship with was a Trump supporter and I was not, being a US immigrant and all. It was surprising how our ideas clashed and we actually fought about those political ideas. I also noticed that people around me were becoming more tribal and as soon as you mention the name Trump, people have a reaction to it-- both good and bad. So, I wrote a book about a girl named Alexa, working for an internet based media company much like Huffington post and Buzzfeed. Some of the events I wrote actually happened and is in the book including the ‘bathroom scene’ which happened in my previous workplace. I decided to write it in three books. Book two is coming out on Christmas and Book 3 will come out around the time of the US elections. The ending of Book 3 will depend on who wins the elections. The book is interesting is that I write about things that actually happened but with fictional characters based on real-life characters that are navigating an ever polarized America. I came to America during the last term of Obama and I have noticed a huge difference in the American’s perception of immigrants such as myself. But the book really is about, can two people wtih different political beliefs,find their happily ever after?
Gina: Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Genie: I am both actually. I am in the middle. I sometimes wing it but sometimes I have to plan it. With writing I have to plan out when I am going to write. I have a schedule now because I work full time as a healthcare worker. But when dealing with plots and characters, I wing it. I just write until the plot holes get solved.
Gina: Do you have any quirks or habits when your writing?
Genie: Well, I just discovered that I can write two books at the same time. When I need to take a break from another book I am working on, I work on another book. Someone it gets my juices flowing and I go back to the original book I was writing. Currently, I am 3/4s done on Book 2 of Love in the Time of the Trump Era but I’m 50 percent done on the book I am going to release for Valentines. It seems to help me to just keep on writing no matter what.
Gina: Have you had any setbacks becoming an author yourself?
Genie: I think my setback is the constant traveling. I am a traveling healthcare worker not really by choice. It was accidental. And the reason I will reveal in my other book, Traveler, which is a personal story and explains why I started traveling as a healthcare worker all over the US. So my setback is that I’m constantly traveling and I lost 2 weeks of writing by having to travel and move to a different location.
Gina: What advice would you give to someone who would like to become a writer?
Genie: Get a book coach. I would never have finished my book until I enrolled in an online course for ebook writers. Having access to a book coach helps motivate me. Plus, I can ask questions when I am stuck.
Gina: What is some of the best advice or inspiration you have received from another author?
Genie: My book coach said that there is a book inside of us waiting to be written. She also told me to do it ugly, meaning, to just write and not be a perfectionist. She also told me to market, market, market. She also said that I should develop thicker skin in terms of criticism and rejection. The point is…. JUST DO IT!
Gina: What goals have you set for yourself in the future?
Genie:  I already have a book coming out almost every other month. I will be doing this part-time for now and when things get better on the writing front, I will write full-time and do my healthcare work part-time. My goal is also to find my audience who will understand me. Because my first book is a romantic political contemporary comedy which is set in the real world but with fictional characters. If I find my audience that ‘gets’ me, I will be happy.
Gina: How do you want readers to see your work?
Genie: I want them to see it as entertainment and as educating the public because the voices of the fictional characters I am using, are real people’s voices and I write about what is happening or what happened during the previous elections.
Gina: What should a reader expect to see from your next novel?
Genie: Book 2 is about developing the characters more so readers will get to know the characters. Book 2 of Love in the Time of The Trump Era, the main character, Alexa will choose who to have a relationship with.
 Gina: Is there anything you would like to share with your readers?
Genie: Just check out my book on Amazon and I have a freebie prequel. I also have a freebie holiday book coming out, Tis’ A Holiday Love Story. I also have books coming out next year every other month or so.
Gina: When will your next book be coming out?
Genie: December 25 for Book 2.
Gina: Thank you for your interview today.

New Release today, The Stolen Princess

By Gina Manis
The Fire Element, Lee wants me for something, but all I want is to get back to my elements, Earth, Wind, and Water. I need to finish my bonding with them and now more than ever. Because Lee wants me to bond with him, and I cannot do that. I want to save the world from fire, not join with it in its destruction.

My bond with Tate the Earth Element helps, but the power of the Elemental sacrifice is growing weaker by each day. I feel it slipping away, and it scares me.

Lee is so powerful and robust, more than any other of his kind. I feel his powers, and they have some control over me. I fight the drawl I have and will not give in to him or to myself.

As our journey becomes dangerous, and we fight to survive together, it becomes harder to fight him. Along the way, I am discovering more of who he is and what he wants. He wraps me in his warmth and keeps me warm, and it becomes harder to resist the attraction I am feeling.

I want to trust him, but I cannot. The others will come for me soon, I tell myself. That he is the enemy, and I must stay strong and fight against him.

It doesn’t help matters as the Elemental Gods, Fire, and Water come to me. Fire wants me to bond with his element Lee and is threatening and dangerous. Water stands steady, saying I must stay my course. It all erupts one night when they force their powers on Lee and me.

I cannot be what Lee wants because we are bound to opposite sides of this war. I can't fall for him when I must fight him in the future.

My feelings are turning deeper, and I need the others to find and rescue me. Before, I can't resist lee’s powers any longer and give in to his heated touch, and lingering cherishes.

Because how and I to kill him... if I fall in love with him.

Book Review by ES Smith

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RM2M272
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Touch is a wonderful story of overcoming heartbreak and grief to get a second chance at love. The book is very well written, with descriptive language, drawing you in and letting you feel Ellie's grief and fears that she is betraying her first love by moving on. The author has written a beautiful tale, full of feeling. 

Book Review by Tarrant Smith

The Water Princess Claiming of Earth is the first book in the Elemental Chronicles by Gina Manis and it was my first ever reverse harem book. Oh My!
So where to begin…
Firstly, Gina Manis weaves an engaging story. There are strong folklore and fantasy components to her world-building; beautiful princess cursed to appear as a hag to others, ogres, magic, and so much more.  In many ways, this book is an adventure first and a romance second. It’s also a story told in first-person. I should pause here and say that I’m not a huge fan of the first-person perspective. I find that choosing that method of storytelling sometimes results in a choppy and abrupt feel to the sentences. But, that is a purely subjective reaction on my part and Manis’s prose and ability as a writer manages to rise above my personal objections.

Dee James Author Interview

Author Dee James is with us today and her book “Mr. Perfect” is one of the first new author books I ever reviewed. Up until this year, 2019, I reviewed just books as I read and enjoyed them but becoming an author myself I wanted to change my reviews and focus on those that were just starting out like me. Dee was one of them and I was so impressed with her work. I have just read her second book to this second look series and I can tell you now, I will be following her work for a while. So let's get started.
Gina: Why did you become an author, Dee?
Dee: I started reading from a very young age, and over the years predominantly read books in the romance genre. Over time, when some books weren’t written the way I’d have wanted it, I started making up those alternate stories in my head. That’s when it struck me – why not write stories just the way I want? Blogging and then self-publishing has given me the platform to do exactly that!
Gina: What genre of books do you like to write?
Dee: I currently write in the romance and rom-com genres. Whether or not I will diversify in the future, it remains to be seen 😊.
Gina: I think you are in a wonderful genre.
What is your inspiration for the current book or series you are writing?
Dee: The current book that I am writing is the third book in the ‘Love @ Second Sight’ series. I wrote the first book when I was going through a rough patch in life with ill health among other issues. I wanted to write something fun, something light and sweet. That’s how Neil and Tanya came about! Once I started writing the other characters in this book, I very soon realized each of them deserved their own story. And, that’s how this series was born!
Gina: I like that you have continued it on with Natasha in the second book. The mystery you left in the first on her was just enough to make me want more.
Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Dee: Honestly, I am a bit of both. I’d like to have an outline or sorts before I begin writing the book. Of course, after beginning to write, the book and the characters take their own course.
Gina: I hear that all the time. Seeing it is one thing but writing it makes it we can see the curves in entanglements change.
Do you have any quirks or habits when your writing?
Dee: I have a particular spot in a café that really, really works for me. With some coffee and my happy spot, the creative juices just flow in 😊.
Gina: I can just see you in a coffee house just typing away with a grin on your face.
Have you had any setbacks becoming an author yourself?
Dee: Not really! I love books, I love reading, and I love writing even more. Whatever be the pace in which I grow, or the reach I have, I accept it and work with the flow. I strongly believe if I am happy and do justice to my craft, the resulting product will be loved by my readers. I haven’t really been proven wrong so far!
Gina: Your reviews have all been amazing from what I can see. I think your on the right track.
What advice would you give to someone who would like to become a writer?
Dee: I’m not sure if I am worthy to dish out advice. But, if I must share something, I’d say this; love what you do, keep learning and improving, and hone your craft well.
Gina: What is some of the best advice or inspiration you have received from another author?
Dee: I’ve been fortunate to meet some wonderful human beings who have shown me what passion is, in this self-publishing world. In particular, my very good friend and editor – D. R. Downer – has been a pillar of support and a source of inspiration; unconsciously pushing me to write more and write better. Deep, if you’re reading this, thank you 😊.
Gina: What goals have you set for yourself in the future?
Dee: Write, write well, and write more. I also want to learn all the aspects of publishing better and help my author friends any which way I can.
Gina: How do you want readers to see your work?
Dee: Growing up, books have been an integral part of my well-being. In particular, romance books have soothed bad days, given me hope, and have helped me see the silver lining even when there wasn’t one. I want my books to be that ray of sunshine and that spark of hope for my readers. I hope to achieve that someday 😊.
Gina: I think your on the right track. I get that from your books.
What should a reader expect to see from your next novel?
Dee: My next novel is about a commitment-phobic billionaire and a simple, next-door girl who changes his perspective of life for the better. This book will also throw light on issues like female health and body-shaming – issues that are close to my heart!
Gina: Is there anything you would like to share with your readers?
Dee: Yes. There are a huge bunch of very talented authors (self-published) here in India who are brilliant and who literally write in all the genres. Give us a shot :D!
           
Gina: Thank you Dee James for sharing with us today. I know you’re a new author and you have started out slow but you have such a talent for writing. I enjoy your work and I know other will too if they will just give you a shot. I wish you luck in the future and I will be sure to keep following.
Dee: Thank you.
Be sure to check out one of Dee James’s books when you have a chance.

Charity Wells is all in today with an interview.

Hello and thank you for joining us for another author Interview. I feel we all learn something very valuable from other authors and personally, I love getting to know what drives them to write. Today Charity Wells tells us what brings that drive to her fingers to write. So let's get started.

 
Gina: Why did you become an author? 
Charity: I’ve always loved stories.  Love to read them. Love to imagine myself in them, love to make up my own.  And I wanted to share them with others, so becoming an author was just another step for me.
Gina: What genre of books do you like to write? 
Charity: I love romance.  I started with paranormal romance; I’ve just now started adding sci-fi romance.  Soon I hope to have fantasy and maybe some urban as well.
Gina: What is your inspiration for the current book or series you are writing? 
Charity: The novella I published for Christmas wasn’t really inspired by anything other than the desire to write a Christmas themed story.  The current book I’m working on though is inspired by Beauty and the Beast, but the idea started when I bought a premade book cover for no reason other than I liked it.
Gina: Are you a plotter or a pantser? 
Charity: Totally a pantser, I don’t plan anything.
Gina: Do you have any quirks or habits when your writing? 
Charity: I do most of my initial writing in pocket sized notebooks that have to be typed later on.  It’s tedious, but I get a lot written like that.
Gina: Have you had any setbacks becoming an author yourself? 
Charity: Marketing sucks.
Gina: What advice would you give to someone who would like to become a writer? 
Charity: Just write.  Learn.  Listen to advice.  Don’t take criticism personally.  Be adaptable, but be yourself as well.
Gina: What is some of the best advice or inspiration you have received from another author? 
Charity: Ask why.  Another author told me to look at my characters and their actions and ask why.  Why did they do that?  What is their motivation?  How are they reacting?
Gina: What goals have you set for yourself in the future? 
Charity: I’d like to finish more than one book a year.
Gina: How do you want readers to see your work? 
Charity: I want them to enjoy reading them.  I want them to relate to my characters and the situations they find themselves in.
Gina: What should a reader expect to see from your next novel? 
Charity: My next book, Dance for Me, is a little darker than my others.
Gina: Is there anything you would like to share with your readers? 
Charity: Leaving a review is the best thing you can do for an author, it makes a difference in how others see their books and their willingness to read them.
Gina: When will your next book be coming out? 
Charity: Hopefully before April 2020
Gina: Thank you for joining us today, author Charity Wells. It has been enlightening.  I hope everyone has enjoyed your interview with us today and will check out your book below.  To everyone else who joined us, thank you as well. Hope to see you all again real soon.

Lisette:  It has taken me awhile to find that genre where I find the most inspiration.  It’s Second Chance Romance.

Say Hello to Author Ellen Mint!

Hi Everyone. Thank you for joining me today with author Ellen Mint. By the range of her books and their covers, Ellen likes diversity with her work. She is on a roll right now and so let's get this interview started so we can learn more about her. 



Gina: Why did you become an author?
Ellen: Because it’s much cheaper to feed and house the characters I create in my brain than actual children. And given my proclivity for stabbing my characters when bored, it’s probably a good thing I decided to go the book route instead of having kids.

Gina: What genre of books do you like to write?
Ellen: I gravitate to the sci-fi and fantasy side of romance. Basically I want any excuse where I can make up whatever I want and release it into the world. It gives me an excuse to do deep dives into mythology and play with lesser known or used monsters and tales. Or my fun series where I’m writing romances to fit with smaller holidays like St. Patrick’s Day or the autumnal equinox. I hope to write a short sci-fi romance for Pi Day next year.
 
Gina: What is your inspiration for the current book or series you are writing?
Ellen: Currently, I am working on a contemporary series called Happily Ever Austen. The idea is to take classic Jane Austen stories and yank the themes into modern time. I don’t keep the same plot and will change the characters (Right now I’m writing a gender swapped Sense & Sensibility) but I want to explore the universal themes of love, dangers of settling, hoping for more, and working to be worthy of the person you love.
My first in the series, Pride & Pancakes came out on December 17th. In that, Beth Cho is a reporter tasked with interviewing the illusive singer-songwriter Tristan Harty. It’s hate at first sight, but the two find themselves trapped in a cabin alone thanks to a blizzard. As they spend time together, the scales and stubborn pride falls from their eyes. Also, there are pancakes.

Gina: Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Ellen: I’m a plantser, which sounds like a Swamp Thing knock off. I always come in with an outline in my brain, especially an ending to aim for. But I’m also flexible and don’t hold myself to what I dreamed up before I started. I often have scenes where I’ll let the characters do what they want. Usually, I find the character and their voice as I write them not before.
Gina: Do you have any quirks or habits when you’re writing?
Ellen: The surest way to cause writer’s block for me is if I’m uncomfortable, so I use a popcorn tin as a footstool when writing and have a massive stack of chair cushions. It is chair cushion mountain. Can’t complain about writing fatigue if I’m sitting on a cloud!

Gina: Have you had any setbacks becoming an author yourself?
Ellen: I’m very much an introvert and can’t work a network to save my life. That’s hamstringed my ability to market, but hasn’t killed it dead. It just means that I couldn’t come out of the gate as the next big author to discover. I’ve been slowly building my name and face, making connections, and figuring out the tricks that work for me.

Gina: What advice would you give to someone who would like to become a writer?
Ellen: Ignore the advice that doesn’t work for you. One-size-fits-all advice from how to write your book all the way  up to how to market your book doesn’t work. We’re all different and trying to alter yourself to fit how another person in a different genre, different style did it won’t help you. Also, be very careful about people and marketers who promise the moon.

Gina: What is some of the best advice or inspiration you have received from another author?
Ellen: Just keep writing. Just keep writing.

Gina: What goals have you set for yourself in the future?
Ellen: God save me, but I’ve taken on four different series at once. Next year around Halloween is the start of a paranormal reverse harem that I’m really excited about. I can combine my love of fantasy with horror elements, as well as a stable of sexy guys. That’s on top of my Happily Ever Austen series, my Holidays, and my Wild Menage which has pirate mermen and hopefully viking werewolves soon.
Here’s hoping I don’t burn out before 2021.

Gina: How do you want readers to see your work?
Ellen: Hopefully as an extension of me. Witty, a little weird, sarcastic, but surprisingly heartfelt the deeper you dive. Or at least on their eReader.

Gina: What should a reader expect to see from your next novel?
Ellen: Pride & Pancakes contains steamy enemies to lovers, pancakes, serenading by a fireplace, blizzards, ice skating, making out in the shower, and a sexy musician.

Gina: Is there anything you would like to share with your readers?
Ellen: Right now I have an amazing advent calendar giveaway going on through all of December, as well as a Christmas hamper prize through my publisher. Everyone who enters gets a free book of mine. You can find out all about it on my website. I hope you all have a happy holidays!

Gina: Thank you so much for joining us Ellen. I look forward to a follow up interview with you in a year and see how all your plans work out.
