Hello everyone! Today, I got something extra special for you! So I’m a host for bewitching book tours, and THIS IS THE LOVELY LADY WHO DOES IT ALL!!! Her book had to be on my blog, because without her being a wonderful host to all the tours, I wouldn’t have so many cool things to give away! 🙂 So, with further adu, here we go!
Hex and the Single Witch
Vehicle City Vampires Book One
By Roxanne Rhoads
Anwyn Rose is descended from a long line of powerful witches yet she can barely cast spells young witchlings have mastered. She has one functioning witch gift, the power of knowing, which she puts to good use as a Detective on Flint’s Preternatural Investigation Team.
It’s a new era in Vehicle City, supernaturals are running the town.
The P.I.T has their hands full with paranormal crimes. Top priority is a serial killer, who appears to be a vampire, draining young women in the city.
Anwyn is on the case with her sexy partner Detective Mike Malone. Complicating things is her relationship Galen, a vampire who looks more guilty than innocent, although Anwyn trusts her instincts even if her power is on the fritz.
Mysterious spells, compromising situations, and a possible demon on the loose make it hard to focus on the case, but Anwyn has to make things right before the human police execute the wrong vampire.
Hex and the Single Witch contains magick, a little bit of mystery, a lot of supernatural mayhem, and a sexy love triangle that will leave you wanting more.
so, I apologize. I’ve had someone hack into my WordPress account because I’m having Internet issues. So I PROMISE TO HAVE MY REVIEW ASAP WHEN THE INTERNET IS FIXED! My sincerest apologies especially to Ms Roxanne. But I can tell you it’s 5 PAWS!!
Author Interview: I’d like to welcome Ms. Roxanne over for an interrogation… I mean interview… WELCOME!!!
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated or did you always just know?
I’ve always known. I was the kid who always had pen and paper scribbling down thoughts and poems. All through my school years I worked for the school papers, won essay contests and things like that.
What inspired you to write your first book and what was it?
Well my very first book was a Sweet Valley Twins knock off when I was like 8 or 9. I called Genesee Valley Twins. LOL I guess it was OK it got me a space at the Young Author’s Conference which was a big deal back then.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
To my knowledge I’ve never met a real vampire so in those aspects no but the relationships… yeah some of the personal relationship issues, problems and connections are probably poached from my personally experiences then morphed into fiction. I think every author does that to an extent. Fiction is part real life, part and pieces of things you see and part pure imagination.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest or that you recommend, other than yourself of course?
Oh yeah so many. Authors are my rocks stars and heroes. Jeaniene Frost, Kim Harrison, Laurell K Hamilton, Kalayna Price, Chloe Neill, Annette Blair, Nicole Peeler….and those are just the tip of a very huge iceberg.
Lawd!What great taste!!Who do you look up to as a writer?
See above LOL
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your book?
Oh yes, there’s always that “what if” and “oh damn I should have done that”… then I just hope I make the next one better
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
I didn’t start as a fiction writer. I started with poetry, essays, journalism and non-fiction so moving to fiction and creating things from scratch without fact checking, research and all that can be daunting. I sit back sometimes and wonder if I did something wrong but then realize it’s fiction and I’m making it up, how can it be wrong?
Who designed the cover? And do you help with them?
Dawne Domique did Hex and the Single Witch (and several of my other covers). She is awesome and takes all my ideas and turns them into my vision. And she went above and beyond this time because she also created my custom logo for the series based on the real Vehicle City Arch in Flint.
Have you ever bought a book based on the cover?
Oh all the time. I am a cover loving junkie. Covers are works of art and pretty ones will suck me in.
Did you learn anything from writing your books and what was it?
That characters will sometimes decide their own fate. In this series Mike Malone was never supposed to be more than Anwyn’s partner, a side character. Then he butted in and decided he was going to be a contender for her heart and the whole story got turned upside down and a complicated romance became a steamy love triangle.
If you could be one of your characters, who would you chose?
Probably Mel. She’s smart, beautiful, powerful, sexy and has snarky personality I love.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
I hope readers enjoy my books. They don’t fit into classic formulas or any one genre, they are a little different and can push boundaries some may not be comfortable with. But if you get past that and connect with the characters then I’ve done something right (and I hope I have).
