Hello all my lovely readers! Saturday is here and that means it's Author Saturday time! Today we have author Zoe Perdita who has written wonderful paranormal series' such as Westside Wolf, Haven City, Russian Wolf, and many more. She's here this fine day to talk with us about how she ticks, to let us take a look at some of her works, and to offer one person an incredible giveaway. So, stick around!
Titan in Chains (Darkvale Series #1)
They call him Titan.
Calder King has it all: a football scholarship at a prestigious university, a guaranteed position as CEO of his family's company (someday) and all the hot co-eds he can handle, but Calder is way more interested in his missing memories and the weird things he can do -- like his super strength and invulnerability. Not to mention the crazy vigilantes terrorizing the city, the ones Calder alone (aka Titan) can handle.
Enter super genius Patrick Black. Not only is he Calder's new college roommate, he's also the ward of the man Calder's family despises. On the surface they should be enemies, but Patrick's the only person who understands what it's like to have the whole world expect stuff from you -- stuff Calder's not sure he can give. Never mind that Patrick is also openly gay and way too hot for his own good. Because Calder is straight, and Patrick doesn't date straight guys.
Patrick Black's whole persona is a carefully controlled lie. By day, he's a studious college student, and by night he's a vigilante exposing the city's dark underbelly as Apprentice. That doesn't mean he can't have a little fun once in a while. Calder King is fun and gorgeous, but he's also as straight as a damn ruler, which takes him off the table. When a mysterious stranger named Titan rescues Patrick one night, sparks fly. If Patrick can’t have Calder, maybe Apprentice can have Titan.
Lust and sex bring these two college roommates together but will their buried secrets tear them apart?
Conner, a rogue wolf and murder detective, isn’t looking for a lover when he moves to Haven City. He wants to solve crimes and keep to himself – unable to trust anyone since his pack betrayed him six years before.
But Seth Alwen, his new partner, is different. He excites the wolf’s animal instincts – waking up the passion Conner buried long ago. Seth’s not only beautiful and alluring; he’s also haunted by the death of his former partner. And despite his better judgment, Conner aches to relieve the man of his guilt.
Seth’s a seer, but ever since his old partner died his powers have been on the fritz.
Enter Conner Sharp, Seth’s sexy and mysterious new partner. While the dark-haired stranger ignites Seth’s desire, he also awakens the seer’s power with every touch. Seth sees their future together – a future rich with lust and danger – but is it a future the enigmatic Conner wants?
As the two men solve a series of murders, their sizzling attraction overflows into the bedroom. Is the overwhelming passion just a fling or is it forever?
NEW RELEASE Out April 3rd!
Spence Bennett never imagined he’d find someone who would love and accept him for who he was, but all of that changed when he met Hunter Westing. By day, they work to survive in the crime-ridden city of Darkvale. But at night, Spence and Hunter hit the streets as the masked vigilantes: Sync and Orion.
While they’re busy targeting mob bosses and drug deals, another shadow moves through the city—a dangerous man known only as imposter X and Spence promised to help the man in exchange for his life. If he doesn’t follow through, the man will hurt Hunter. Possibly kill him.
Hunter Westing would do anything to protect Spence from Darkvale and his own the violent urges. The only way to relieve them are through their kinky sex-life and bashing in kneecaps of local criminals. But when the man that both threatened and saved Spence’s life calls in a favor, Hunter doesn’t have a choice but to obey.
Can Spence and Hunter free themselves from imposter X’s web of intrigue, or is their love weaker than their enemies lies?
Hey, Zoe, thank you for being here today and agreeing to this mild interrogation. You’ve been on the blog before but this time I get to ask you things! YAY!
What is the very first thing you do when writing a book?
Thanks for having me! I do a minor outline that includes the character’s names, main motivation and the overall plot. I also try to think of a kick ass line to start the book and draw readers in.
What’s the very last thing you do?
Drink a glass a wine and worry what my editor will think.
Where’s the strangest place you’ve gotten a plot bunny?
I’m not sure if it’s that strange, but I get a lot of plot bunnies while hiking. Once, I saw a walking stick in a hole in the middle of a foot bridge and got the idea that if someone pulled it out, they’d summon a wizard who would then have to follow them around because they were bound together. I might do something with that. It sounds fun.
Who are some of you writing inspirations?
Coffee. It fuels everything. Reading historical accounts. There’s a bunch of crazy stuff that happened in the past, and it’s great for plotting and characters. Also snappy dialogue in movies, TV shows or books. That always gets me in the mood to write my own.
You love traveling. Where is your favorite place to go?
There are so many! In the US, probably the Washington coast. It’s so wild and rugged and secluded. For the rest of the world, Tokyo, Japan. It feels like home and the food is great. Plus, there is no way to get bored in Tokyo.
Why shifters? What made you gravitate to them?
I love fantasy and shifters fit into that mold nicely. Plus, I like world building different shifter societies. It’s pretty fun to play around with. And, since most of my characters are a bit morally gray, they work better as shifters since they can get away with more than a normal human could.
Would you ever collaborate with an author and if so who?
I’m not sure. It sounds fun, but I’ve never thought about it before so I don’t have anyone in mind.
Can you tell us what you’re currently working on?
I’m re-vamping all of my older books with new covers and new ebook files—all 30 of them! I’m also plotting the last Darkvale book because it’s going to be a doozy. All the secrets are revealed and loose ends tied up.
Do you cast your characters or do they take on a unique image in your head?
They’re unique to my head. I’d draw them if I could.
How can your readers follow your work: Twitter, FB, Website etc….
