Describe your book Tears of the Goddess (The Goddess Series #1) in ten words or less
A romantic tale about two lovers whose love transcends all.
Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?
There were two reasons why and how this story came about.
Firstly, I wanted to write a prequel to all of my forthcoming stories, as well as have more world-building opportunities. All of the stories I’ve written so far and most that will be forthcoming all take place in the same world/universe.
Secondly, I wanted to challenge myself and write something I don’t normally write. The romance genre is something new to me, and I wanted to give it a try. I thought this story would be perfect. I also wanted to challenge myself to write a complete, self-contained story in 10,000 words or less and still execute it strongly as if it were a full-blown novel. I managed to get almost exactly 10,000 words (just fell short by a few words). It was a fun and exciting challenge for me to do something new for a change.
Which of your characters (in this book) is closest to your heart and why?
It’s hard to choose when all of my characters are very dear to me.
If I had to choose, I would say Sémdi. He was fun to write because he’s such a mischievous bugger, but he has a good heart. He becomes the unlikely character that ends up helping the heroine in her quest to save the one she loves.
Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?
My day job consists of programming. I enjoy it, as it relaxes me (yes, I’m such a weird geek).
It hasn’t affected my writing time much. I’m able to organize my time effectively to be able to squeeze some writing in.
Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about
I have plenty of projects in the works, but my biggest, most recent one is working on book 3 of my first-ever trilogy. I am hoping to have it released by mid to late spring, 2013.
Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!
If you like the Dragonlance series, Xanth novels, whimsical romance tales, and/or the paranormal romance genre, you’ll probably like my book, too!
Tears of the Goddess (The Goddess Series #1) is available on Amazon (Kindle).
