Our featured author for today is AK Michaels, who is the author of The Witch, The Wolf and The Vampire Series. As an indie author she tells me that she has been writing for less than two years and published less than a year ago and has had an incredible turnout. I personally have read most of her books and they are fabulous. The one thing that I really enjoy about her books is the fact that they have this depth that you don’t always see in books but it’s an easy read with no HUGE words that have you scrambling for a dictionary just so you can understand the sentence. She brings the twists and turns that you want out of a good book to life and allows you to feel as though you are there with the characters.
Instead of an interview this time around I asked her to answer just a couple questions such as are what are the pros and cons of being an author. So here are her answers:
Pros and Cons of being an author – pros – I can get all the words and stories running around inside my head out and make way for new ones! Writing them out gives me a sense of peace and also excitement as I see the stories come to life. A huge pro for me is when someone reads one of my stories and enjoys them, especially if they come and let me know – I love that folks get enjoyment from the weird things running through my brain lol. Also, all the wonderful people I’ve met online because of my stories – I’ve made lifelong friends with some of them and am planning trips to go and meet them! For someone like me – with full blown OCD and anxiety issues – that is a huge accomplishment for me and it’s all because of my stories.
Cons – I work long hours – 12-14 hours a day 7 days a week and it’s hard to juggle family life and work sometimes. I find it almost impossible to switch off and even on our vacation that we’re just back from, I had a new series running through my head almost constantly! When I’m ‘in the zone’ the house could explode around me and I wouldn’t know it and family have to come and give me a poke if they want me to actually answer something cause I don’t hear them lol. Trying to get everything done in a day that I want to can be stressful and I’m afraid I can get quite grumpy. Also, if I’m working I hate to be interrupted by normal stuff like cooking dinner lol. I’d quite happily just sit and work and let the world around me disappear.
The Witch, The Wolf and The Vampire (Book 1)
Peri has been running since she was fifteen – using her magic to stay safe. ‘They’ can track her magic tho, so she has to use it sparingly. In Vegas, for a cash in hand job, and things turn nasty! She knows the amount of magic she would have to use to escape unscathed would bring ‘them’ right to her.
Before she can use the vast magic required two males appear and aid her. One a wolf, one an ancient vampire. Josef, the vampire, and Gabe, the wolf, are more than a little interested in this skinny girl. What ensues shocks both of the strong males – this girl is more than a stray, more than a witch – it looks like she is a mate – for both of them!?
Will Peri stay? Will they keep her safe? Who, if any, of the two will she choose? Just how much power does this stripling of a girl have locked inside her?
The Witch, The Wolf and The Vampire (Book 2)
Peri has finally stopped running and found safety with Gabe and Josef … her Wolf and her Vampire. Now she is getting strong, physically and magically, and she is ecstatic with her two mates. She is not about to let anyone take that away and she surprises even herself with her power.
However, a psycho sect has been hunting her for over six years, and they are closing in. Her own father is the leader of this sect, but she is more than willing to do whatever she can to take him down. Destroy him for everything he is, everything he does, before he does to others what he did to her.
With an ancient Vampire and a powerful Wolf by her side she just can’t fail … can she?
The Witch, The Wolf and The Vampire (Book 3)
Peri has finally defeated her own father, the psycho leader of a sect that has plagued her since childhood. Now she looks forward to a life she never thought she’d have, in love with both Josef and Gabe.
As the three of them prepare for their future, they become involved in helping their friends Kyle and Sabrina go on the run, tracking down a kidnapped child and advising the supernatural cop Ronan. It’s an exciting life for Peri, being the mate of both a Vampire and a Wolf!
Unknown to them, the magical sect has gained a new leader. Even more vicious than her father, it’s only a matter of time before this maniac rips apart Peri, Josef and Gabe’s world…
