J.A Saare Interview and Giveaway!

We are extremely excited to welcome J.A. Saare to our blog. She writes a variety of genres including, UF, Erotica, Contemporary Romance, and Paranormal Romance that totally kicks ass!!!

I read Mrs. Saare’s book, “Dead, Undead, or Somewhere In Between” About a year ago….. After it sat on my shelf … for a while. After reading it, I could have kicked myself for waiting so long. I fell in love with her story and her characters. After reading book two in the series, “The Renfield Syndrome,” I found myself even more head over heels for this series. I was really excited that Elena loved this series too, after nudging her into it. We are so looking forward to the third instalment in Rhiannon’s Law. If you haven’t yet discovered this series, I suggest you pick it up. It’s such a fun, sexy, crazy ride, and Mrs. Saare will sweep you up in a fast paced story that will leave you wanting more!!

Thanks Jaime for taking time out of your busy schedule to join us today.

Thanks for having me!

*Elena’s Questions for Jaime

Q: If you had the opportunity to write with another author, who would it be?

A: Oh man, that’s tough! There are so many authors I admire. I recently devoured Carolyn Cranes’s Disillusionist Trilogy (I’m eagerly waiting for book three) and would love to work with her. She has such a beautiful voice and a talent for storytelling.
 
Q: While writing the “The Renfield Syndrome,” you chose to add the Lycans / Werewolves into the story. Was it to get your readers excited or do you have a plan? Will the werewolves continue into the coming book?
A: The simple answer is yes, werewolves will reappear in future instalments. I’m not sure of when that might be.  I’ve always been drawn to shifters, so I wanted to incorporate them into the books.

Q: Here’s a question I hope you can answer; Will Paine get his HEA?
 
A: I have a general idea of where things are going, so I’d like to “think” he will. However, I’m not a plotter when I write. I have a general idea of where things will go but usually that changes as the story progresses. I want Paine to have his HEA. He’s a character I’ve always loved.

*Rhonda’s Question’s for Jaime



Q: I love to read great kick ass heroines, and I’ve only met a few. Rhiannon Murphy straight up ROCKS! She’s smart, witty, kicks ass, and I love her sense of humour. She is among my favorite heroines, a list she shares with; MacKayla Lane (Fever series), Sinead Donnelly (Demonica series) , Xhex, (BDB) Catherine Crawfield (Night Huntress) , Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy), Eugenie Markham ( Dark Swan) and Piper Anast ( Piper’s Fury) .
What was your inspiration for creating Rhiannon Murphy?


A: Thank you so much! I’m thrilled that you enjoy reading Rhiannon since she’s a blast to write. Creating her was actually a flash in the pan. I had a glimpse one day of a young woman who worked in a strip club as a bartender and saw dead people. I told my husband about it, he said it sounded interesting, and I literally sat down and started writing.  Her first law came out of nowhere. She is one of those characters that are very vocal, so her “voice” came very naturally to me.

 

Q: Out of all the books you’ve written, what character is the most fun for you to write? Which Character is most Challenging?

A: Rhiannon is the most fun to write, hands down. She says what she thinks and I love that about her. Disco is the hardest. I’ve been trying to write a vignette from his point of view for months. Each time I start, I can’t hear anything from him.
Q: “The Renfield Syndrome” was pretty gory, and I loved it!! The chick fight between Rhiannon and Jackson was awesome, which scene in Renfield Syndrome was your favorite to write??
A: The scene you mentioned. *smile* It was so much fun to write a fight scene where anything goes. I love horror, so the gory aspects were right up my alley.
Q: Can you tell us about anything you are working on right now or give us a sneak peak?
A: Right now I’m working on the third book in the Rhiannon’s Law series, The Ripple Effect. I’m also working on erotic works under my Aline Hunter pen. It’s nice to be able to go back and forth. Rhiannon is a very dark character, so writing romance is a nice breather. I do have a new urban fantasy in the works. I can’t say much aside from I started writing it last year and I hope to wrap it up as soon as the books I’m contracted for are finished.

Five Question Quickie (short answers)

Q: What are your 3 favorite horror movies?


A: Fright Night, Fright Night II, and The Company of Wolves. I love those!
Q: What’s your favorite TV show?

A: Archer
Q: What is your favorite music genre?

A: Nine Inch Nails -- anything by Trent Reznor.
Q: What are your 3 favorite book series?
A: I love Joey W. Hill’s Vampire Queen Series, Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series, and Kelley Armstrong’s Tales of the Otherworld.
Q: Favorite food?
Filet Mignon. So expensive but so good!
Thanks again for having me by the blog! It’s been a pleasure!

“Dead Undead or Somewhere in Between”.

To enter just fill out the rafflecopter form below and let the goodness that is rafflecopter be with ya!


BOOK EXCERPT

One bad corpse can ruin your whole day.
No one knows that better than Rhiannon Murphy. She’s left behind the flash and sass of Miami for the no-nonsense groove of New York City, eager for a clean slate and a fresh start. A bartender by trade, a loud mouth by choice, and a necromancer by chance, she’s managed to keep her nifty talent hidden from those around her--until now.
The deliciously good-looking vampire Disco knows her secret, and when he strolls into her bar to solicit help investigating the mysterious disappearances of his kind from the city, she discovers he’s not the kind of person that appreciates the significance of the word no. But in a world where vampires peddle their blood as the latest and greatest drug of choice, it’s only a matter of time before the next big thing hits the market. Someone or something is killing vampires to steal their hearts, and unlike Rhiannon, this isn’t their first stroll around the undead block.
Book 1 of the Rhiannon's Law series

Rhonda and Elenas

Joint Review...
Rhonda: J.A. Sarre had me at “Undead” (Dead, Undead or Somewhere In Between, Rhiannon’s Law #1 ) I loved that book so much, and Renfield Syndrome has been a highly anticipated book for me. I was super excited that Elena decided to join me on this crazy, awesome ride, even though she left me in the dust. LOL!

Elena: I do have a tendency of leaving my friends in a buddy read behind. BUT, all for a good reason. I just can’t help it! If you haven't read this series, then smack yourself upside your head, cause you deserve it! Hehe.... It's such a crazy, suspenseful, mind-blogging series! Edge of your seat and biting your finger nail kinda good! I'm hanging by a thread here. Waiting for the next novel is complete torture! Grrrrrr......


Rhonda: If you’re a lover of PNR and UF, this series does not disappoint!! Vampires, Werewolves, and Demons OH MY!! Rhiannon strikes a bargain with a demon, and is catapulted 101 years into the future, to a demonic post apocalyptic New York in search of Disco, her oh so sexy vampire boyfriend, to try and fulfil her end of the bargain.

Elena: What Rhonda said above, I’d take her in on her opinion if I were you. I assure you, she’s not lying. After Rhiannon falls flat on her ass, into the future, 101 years later in NY, to a city she no longer recognizes. My first thought was, " Oh No! She was suppose to go back and have more smexin with Disco", My heart thumped, spasmed and skipped a beat at that thought. Back to the story. Who the hell does Zagan think he is? Yeah, I know, a creepy Demon that takes advantages of bargains and debts owed. Creep De-Lou Bastard. Back to the topic again.... Rhiannon has to fulfill her part of the bargain, the bargain she made to Zagan. Which was to give one message to Disco. What message? Read it, and find out :P I can tell you one thing, "Mad shite goes down in this novel"!!

Rhonda: Saare’s writing is top notch, she tells Rhiannon’s first person POV is flawlessly. Her Characterization is awesome, from Rhiannon’s bad-ass, witty, “don’t fuck with bull, you’ll get the horns” personality. To Paine… who just made my heart ache. All the secondary characters were really well developed too. This ride was crazy good, biting lip, twisting fingers kinda awesome!


Elena: Rhiannon’s character is so intriguing and easy to love. Actually, I wanna love all the characters in this novel forever and ever. Lol!! Whaaa? Can't I have a happily ever after? RIGHT.... In my dreams ahahaha..... Rhiannon, Disco and Paine = Pure hot tingly sensations that'll make your bones quiver! The word "HOT" doesn't symbolize their true nature of what they're made of. Whew! Everything is all good in their neighbourhood. The person that broke my heart and shattered it to pieces was, Paine. Why oh why did the author take that direction with his story? Oh Helpmerhonda I almost passed out :P It took me so long to get used to things. I'm not sure if I ever will like him in that sorta way. Just because Disco will always be my one and only *Sighs* although Disco p'd me off with his head invasion Grrr! All in all. Saare wrote such a phenomenal series that I'm so addicted to, I don't want it to ever end. EVER!
Rhonda: Okay, I'm gonna defend Disco here. That "Mind Invasion" was wrong, buuuuut.... I don't see any other way for him to believe in Rhiannon. Now Paine, he was really sweet, and I hope he gets his HEA, I was thinking about Jennifer, Rhiannon’s sister. What if Rhiannon has to take her to NY, and Paine finds the same..... Traits in her that he finds in Rhiannon?? That would be awesome!!!! But Disco is da bomb, for sure!! Now the wait is on for book 3. Gaaaaahhhh!! Mrs. Saare, you torture me, and I loved every page!!

Elena: You got a point there Rhonda. Everyone is in the wrong in this novel. But it is what it is and I LOVE this book for all those reasons. *rubs hands together* Paine and Jennifer? Nice thinking!!
