– Leia, Jaymin, what is your book Ash about?
Ash is about a human girl that lives in a realistic world of vampires and half vampire/human children, the ash. All ash are male and so the story really starts when Charlie, the lead heroine, and a female, finds out she’s an ash. The ash live in the Hive which doesn’t have enough room for the incoming batch of ashes. So Charlie needs to survive the culling, a barbaric fight to the death. The Hive only wants the strongest to become members of their society. We won’t spoil too much but Ryder, the lead Ash enforcer, has a soft spot for Charlie’s wellbeing. The story really develops further into the larger plot which you will find out if you read it. =)

ELLA MAISE: I HAD TO FORCE MYSELF TO STOP WRITING TO LOVE JASON THORN

It’s time for our Christmas interview. It’s a special choice, because all holidays are full with love. Ella Maise released her new book To Love Jason Thorn on December 3.

The romantic comedy made a pretty nice launch. The novel received more than 100 reviews with pretty solid average of 4,6 stars.
Let’s welcome our next guest – the charming Ella Maise.

Merry Christmas to everyone

ella

– Ella, what is your book To Love Jason Thorn about?
To Love Jason Thorn is about an ordinary girl who falls in love with her brother’s best friend when she is only six-years-old and knows nothing about love. Sure, back then it is nothing more than a harmless crush, but even though years passes by and he breaks her heart—unknowingly—before he leaves the city for good, it does nothing to kill the love she feels in her heart for him. And isn’t that the best kind of love. First love.
Then life happens, more years passes by and Olive only gets to see Jason through the big screen since he has become a famous actor. When she is about to graduate from college, she publishes the first novel she ever wrote—which is loosely inspired by the love she felt for a boy…for Jason—and it becomes the number one bestseller. While everyone is talking about her book, a well-known production company gets in touch with her to option the movie rights. Coincidentally, they already have an actor they have in mind for the role and they want her to meet with him, thinking it’ll make it easier for her to accept their offer. And when Jason Thorn is the one who walks through the door…everything changes for Olive in that moment. The very last time she’d seen him, he had broken her heart, but as they slowly become friends again and Jason slowly starts to fall for the girl who had always been his…well, then the story only gets better. 🙂

saffron

– Saffron, what are your books from The Nova Chronicles about?
The Nova Chronicles are a science fiction series that focus around Nova, a rebel bounty hunter who takes on dangerous missions, and her fight for survival. She has to battle blood-thirsty aliens and avoid the overbearing Confederacy in a desperate search for freedom. I like to think of it as “Tomb Raider in Space”, although some readers have said it’s more than that.

cristin

– Cristin, you are very productive as a writer. You are working on three different series at once. How did you accomplish such a difficult task of mixing stories and characters?

The Only series only involves one couple, however in the end, the happily ever after includes Delta and Titan. While it’s three separate series, they are all interconnected.
