Andrea R Cooper Social Media

Andrea has always enjoyed creating characters and stories. But it wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels. She writes fantasy, paranormal, contemporary, and historical romance. Under the pen name, A.R. Cooper, she writes YA Fantasy. Her debut YA series is Shadow Bloodlines.
What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids (two boys and a girl).
Andrea writes fantasy, paranormal, historical, and romantic suspense.
She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.

Play Is It True with today’s guest Livia Quinn, author of Blame it on the Moon, an Urban Fantasy. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

 

First, tell us about your book.

Destiny – is it Mayberry or Middle Earth?

It’s the height of the Para-moon and Sheriff Jack Lang is up to his ‘6’ in alligators. Defending those weaker than himself is in his DNA which is what drove him to become a Navy pilot. But who is he kidding? Alligators he could handle! But supernatural bad guys? Ragtag doesn’t begin to describe his band of temporary ‘heroes’. If he has to go to war with the group that showed up at dawn, he might as well start cutting up white sheets and attaching them to garden stakes.

With Tempe and the other Paramortals ill or incapacitated and the sudden appearance of beings he’s never heard of, will Jack be able to keep Destiny out of the hands of their enemies for the rest of the power down an–very important–keep the humans in the dark?

It’s only twenty-four hours. If worse comes to worse, he has a dragon on his side and a few surprises up his sleeve. “Yippe, ki, yi…”

But a lot can happen in twenty-four hours and things don’t always go as planned.

The summer when Heather was eighteen, her dream beast’s nightly visits warded off loneliness and swept her away in flights of ecstasy. Now, returning to the mountains to sell her dead parents’ vacation cabin, she finds her “beast” again. But he turns out to be more than a dream. She meets Devin in the flesh, apparently not a day older. His first human lover, centuries in the past, died horribly because of her devotion to him.

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No
this book is part of a series?
No. It’s a standalone
you lost sleep while writing this book?
I always lose sleep. My characters love to torment me in the middle of the night and I frequently get up to write at 3:00 am.
you did research for this book?
Yes. Absolutely loads. I have a friend who uses Tarot so I took her to lunch and picked her brain. She did a reading for me and then I went away and studied tarot and witchcraft to such a huge degree.
I also did a massive amount of research on the Inner Hebrides.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Some are definitely not human. Ruth has three rather interesting black ‘cats’.
this book has more than one genre?
I think so, it’s a contemporary dark paranormal, but it’s prologue is historical.
you speak more than one language?
Unfortunately not. I can understand a certain amount of German and French, but I just never practice enough to keep my schoolgirl languages up to date.
you grew up where you live now?
No. I grew up in Africa and Germany. I travelled extensively throughout Europe when I was a child.
you love to read?
Absolutely. I never go anywhere without either my kindle or a book.
you are never late?
No. I hate to be late for anything. I’ve spent so long juggling work, children and activities that I tend to run things with military precision. Well, not so much these days now my girls have grown up…
you love pizza?
No. It certainly doesn’t love me. I always get terrible stomach pains after pizza.
you love sushi?
No. It’s not so much the fish as the bland rice. It just doesn’t appeal.
you have a pet?
I have several. A stunning Dalmatian called Skye, and handsome black Labrador called Beau. Felicity, my one-eyed kitty who’s forever in trouble and Sam our ginger queen who rules the house. We also have six chickens – soon to be more as one is brooding over four fertilized eggs.

Each of her novels brings something symbolically Australian to her readers, from Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this part of the world.

Each of her books tells of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine, surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder. These romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural townships of North Queensland. Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on people she has met in her life.

Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their nine children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

Is It True: Dark Love Rising by Danita Minnis @Danita_Minnis #RLFblog #pnrPlay Is It True with today’s guest Danita Minnis, author of Dark Love Rising, a Paranormal Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Former MI6 agent Xavier Quinn would say that you’re daft if you think he will stop killing for a living. But that is exactly what is about to happen. Very soon now, Quinn will start killing to stay alive. On the run after taking out the wrong man, Quinn would die a happy man if he could just live long enough to ruin the Parliament member who set him up.

Layla, a 2,000 year old vampire with a moral code, has other plans for the contract killer. When she awakens to the sound of a dark rising, she enlists Quinn to join her on a mission to save humanity from her twin sister Tamara.

But Quinn is just the kind of man that a cold-blooded killer like Tamara needs in her world. A man like Quinn, who never believed in humanity, has only one belief; self-preservation. Being a vampire sounds much better than staying human in the game of kill or be killed. Will he stay alive long enough to find out how Layla’s love can change the equation?

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No. Dark Love Rising is my fourth paranormal romance novel. I’m hooked on the genre!

this book is part of a series?
Not at the moment. But I’m not sure I’m done with Quinn and Layla. I may delve deeper into their relationship and globe-trotting hunt at a later date.

you lost sleep while writing this book?
I did! In the quiet darkness of my bedroom I could see Layla dancing for Queen Cleopatra, her hands weaving intricate patterns in the air.:)

you did research for this book?
Yes. When researching ancient Egypt for Layla’s background, I kept thinking what it would be like to be Queen Cleopatra’s handmaiden. It must have been a very privileged life.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Layla is upset with this question. I can see her fangs on display. She loved being human and her life at Cleopatra’s palace in Alexandria. That was before she was forced into the dark life of a vampire.

this book has more than one genre?
All of my books have more than one genre. Horror, probably from all the Twilight Zone and Hitchcock I imbibed growing up. Historical, love it, can’t help myself. Paranormal: Vamps are my latest thing but I can’t do without a few ghosts, who make an appearance in Dark Love Rising.

you speak more than one language?
I speak New Yawk.

you grew up where you live now?
Yes.

you love to read?
I LOVE to read. All the books I’ve read were research. And I didn’t even know I wanted to be an author until ten years ago. But looking back now, I probably should have known.

you are never late?
I could say something very dishonest here but let’s just say if you invite me to a party that starts at 7pm, you better tell me it starts at 5pm.

you love pizza?
Yes. But I don’t love the enhanced pear-shape it tends to give me.

you love sushi?
I could do without it, but I just think of that pear-shape and raw fish sounds pretty good!

you have a pet?
The Khan-Man is a member of my family. Yep, I’m part Husky. Love you Khan-puppy!

Is It True: The Du Lac Chronicles by Mary Anne Yarde @maryanneyarde #RLFblog #HistoricalPlay Is It True with today’s guest Mary Anne Yarde, author of The Du Lac Chronicles, a Historical Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

“It is dangerous to become attached to a du Lac. He will break your heart, and you will not recover.” So prophesies a wizened healer to Annis, daughter of King Cerdic of Wessex. If there is truth in the old crone’s words, they come far too late for Annis, who defies father, king, and country to save the man she loves.

Alden du Lac, once king of Cerniw, has nothing. Betrayed by Cerdic, Alden’s kingdom lies in rubble, his fort razed to the ground and his brother Merton missing, presumably dead. He has only one possession left worth saving: his heart. And to the horror of his few remaining allies, he gives that to the daughter of his enemy. They see Annis, at best, as a bargaining chip to avoid war with her powerful father. At worst, they see a Saxon witch with her claws in a broken, wounded king.

Alden has one hope: When you war with one du Lac, you war with them all. His brother Budic, King of Brittany, could offer the deposed young king sanctuary—but whether he will offer the same courtesy to Annis is far less certain.
