Scott Bryan Interview Halloween event

 Welcome Scott Bryan!

First why don't you tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Scott Bryan. I’m the author of the Night Children series. I like walks by the beach
and almost any kind of music.

Newest release?

Night Children: Dark Changes. It’s the 2nd book in the series. It tells the tale of Annabelle 
and Roland’s first big life altering change. Well, that is after being turned into vampire children 
anyway.

What can we expect from your stories, action, drama,
 romance, sex, blood and guts?

Action, drama, comedy (I hope), adventure, paranormal
fantasy, blood. Picture a good PG 13 movie.

Do you have a favorite character in your stories? Who?
and Why?

Annabelle. She is compassionate, self-sacrificing and determined to make sure no child suffers 
as she has suffered.

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:

The series covers the last 300 years of history seen through the
vampire children’s eyes. This means I need to do extensive research for every book.
In the first book, Dark Birth, Annabelle and Roland come across
the Mohegan Indians. I discovered that tribe had a tradition of little spirits that would
help them. So it was a welcome surprise and I incorporated it into the book. I find a lot of
historic gems for the series.

Has there been any other authors who have inspired your
work or helped you out with your stories?

Of course! Rick Riordan, JK Rowling, Darren Shan, JR Tolkien, Richard Adams, Phillip 
Pullman, CS Lewis, Stan Lee, Josh Wheaton, Steven Moffat, Russell T Davis, Roy Thomas, 
Chris Claremont, Garry Conway, Steve Engleheart, Grant Morrison, Geoff Jones, Garry 
Marshall, Ian Watson and Marv Wolfman to name a few.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

Post a review on Amazon and Goodreads (even if you got it for free
somewhere else). Vote on it on Wattpad. Share links on Facebook and Twitter. That 
sort of thing.

Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying
to get published?

Yes! 1. Don’t quit! 2. No one is perfect. We all write crap. But pick
yourself up and keep at it.
You will only improve if you keep writing. If you’re stuck on a
concept and can’t move forward, take a break with another story but only a set amount 
of time, then go back. Read through your work after the break. Your mind will open up 
greatly to new possibilities.

Do you have a favorite author? If yes, what draws you to that
person’s work?

Rick Riordan. His characters are fun, likeable and relatable.

Can you remember one of the first things you wrote?

A fan fiction story for several DC and Marvel message boards.
It tied together multiple characters across several comics. Badly written but it was fun!

What makes it memorable?

I was able to fit multiple pieces from different characters into a
unified whole. Personalities clashed and lots of action.

Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your work?

Everywhere. Music, TV, movies, comics, books. Ideas clash
and become something new. Music is a great help though. Characters and scenes have come 
about due to various pieces of music.

Do you have any other interesting hobbies, pets or stories you
would like to share?

Comics have been a huge influence in my life. I practically learned
to read from them as a small child. Yes, the art has been amazing most times, but it’s the stories
 that really inspired me. Heck, I even collect figures due to my heroic hobby.
I love animals. Several pets have graced my life. Currently we
have six. Three cats and three dogs. Lots of humor. Like my kids,
each animal has their own personality.

Favorite places to travel or visit?

California! I love the beach. It soothes me. I adore Disneyland.
I enjoy amusement parks but Disney is the king of them all.

And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book
that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:( Include links to where we can find your work)

This is from NIGHT CHILDREN: DARK CHANGES. 
It’s book two in the series…

The little group of vampires listened for any approaching hunters.
“How do we even know if their coming?” Eric asked.
“They probably got their fill of killing at
Vanessa’s Ball.”
“We can’t be sure of that,” Annabelle replied. Charlotte clung onto
Annabelle’s dress, her body
vibrated with Charlotte’s constant trembling. “Yoska said it was time to
 go and I believe him.”
“Believe him?” Eric replied. He stood next to Mary beside the
staircase. “You don’t even know him.”
“Hey,” Tom interjected. “If Annabelle says she trusts the big guy,
I believe her. Besides, London’s starting to fill up with vampire hunters.”
“Yes,” Molly stood by the curtain with the twins. “I agree. It’s
time we moved on. Something’s wrong. The street’s deserted.
The air feels too still. Salina, Samuel, go stand with Mary. You
shouldn’t be near the window right now.” The twins let out their
 normal protests but they blurred towards Mary.
“What is it?” Annabelle asked. “Do you see anything Molly?”
Molly peered through the heavy curtains, “I thought I saw
movement on the rooftops across the street but--”
The front wall exploded inward, which rained painful debris
on the others. Annabelle and Mary
shielded the younger children while Thomas and Eric pushed
aside the large pieces of debris.
Molly was knocked to the floor and began to stand up when
Hawke stepped through the large
hole and ran something silver through Molly’s chest. Screams
 ripped from every female. Annabelle was barely aware
of her own shriek. Hawke’s fiendish grin stole her thoughts as it
contrasted with Molly’s look of stark pain.
Does Molly make it out “alive”? Do Annabelle, Tom and
 the vampire orphans? You’ll have to catch Dark Changes to find out!

Here’s where you can find them. They are available in
eBook and paperback format.

Melanie P. Smith



DUSK is the story of Alex Deveraux.  It begins with Alex rushing home to say goodbye to her dying father. Her mother died of a heart attack the previous year, at least that’s what Alex believes. She’s been depressed and living in Italy, trying to cope with her loss. Alex returns to New York to discover her world is not what it once seemed.
Shortly after the death of her father, Alex’s brother introduces her to a world their parents kept hidden for twenty eight years. A world in turmoil. She soon discovers that her mother was the Fae Queen and upon her death, Alex inherited the throne. Her absence has made her people vulnerable and divided. Vulnerable because the assassination of her mother has broken a long standing treaty with the local vampires and divided because the people have been left without a leader during this time of war.  To make matters worse, the vampire king just happens to be Alex’s half-brother. As the oldest child, he believes he should inherit the Fae kingdom, not Alex. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to claim his kingdom and destroy his sister.
Amid her struggle to embrace the unbelievable, Alex must accept her role as leader of an entire people. As she attempts to understand this new world, she soon discovers she has special gifts. Alex immediately realizes she must develop and hone these powers if she’s going to protect her people from extinction. If that wasn't enough Alex is falling for a man that seems to despise her. Well actually, Dimitri is a warrior who is over 400 years old. The warriors are a group of protectors developed by the Fae to guard against vampire attacks. She doesn't understand Dimitri’s instant disdain any more than she can deny her growing desire for this sexy, powerful man.

Excerpt: Naval captain, Sam Waterhouse is about to give a demonstration of his supernatural powers to his boss, the admiral - with disastrous results.

Sam began his meditation technique. Standing erect with his hands lifted slightly away from his sides, he created a faint rainbow-colored arch extending from one hand, over his head, and down into the opposite hand. In a few more seconds, the men heard the whine of the chopper’s engine. The chopper soon came into view as it hovered above the treetops.
The admiral looked back at the sun crystal on his desk. It showed not a glimmer, no rays of energy emitting from its facets as it had when Butchart had given his demonstration. It sat just like a paperweight, lifeless. As far as he could tell, the source of power Sam accessed to remotely fly the helicopter came from within him.
“Well done!” he shouted above the roar of the chopper’s engine.
Suddenly, the chopper switched positions and fired toward the window. Butchart and the admiral dove away from the window but not before bullets shattered it. Flying debris struck Butchart’s shoulder and arm. The admiral crawled on the floor under the flying bullets to his desk. He reached into a drawer and grabbed his gun, aiming it square at Sam’s head.
“Stop it or I’ll blow your head off!” he shouted.

Two and a half weeks. That’s all the time he has left. 

When loner vampire hunter Kassy is interrupted by nosy veteran, Mike, he ends up bitten, and infected with the vampire parasite. The warrior becomes her prey as she fights to find him before powerful vamps do. A couple kidnappings later, she’s hiding in a cabin with him chained to the floor, and an eight-year-old girl in her care. 

Death? Inevitable. When the parasite takes control, he’ll do or say anything to get non-infected blood—including seducing her. But, as they spend time together, she finds her resolve weakening. A kiss won’t fix him, but it might mend a deep hole in her heart. 

Kassy is too practical to believe in miracles, but if he survives eighteen days without ingesting human blood, there is a chance he could be the hero she's been looking for. 

Odds are, he’s a dead man.

Really, I kick down doors -no, wait, that was my husband when I locked us out of the house . . . Well, I engage in combat on a regular basis -online when I play MMORPGs with my children . . . OK, maybe I'm not a real ninja but my husband says I stole his heart. Does that count? No? Shoot.
Well, I love reading and I love writing. I think imagination is the biggest advantage a child can get in life and I try to allow my children many opportunities to expand theirs every day.
I love teaching authors how to avoid publishing traps and scams as well as how to market themselves and their works. Some of the biggest honors of my life are the times I've been asked to present to writers groups across the nation. There is nothing better in life than giving someone information that helps them become successful.
I also take a few hours each week and create jewelry, make lotions or paint something. I have little creation stations scattered through the house. My daughter gets into it a lot and scatters things which drives my husband crazy but remember how I mentioned that he says I stole his heart? Yeah. I'm not giving it back. He's stuck with me forever.

Lia Davis





Imperfect Mate
Harmony Springs, book 1
Decadent Publishing ROAR line
By Lia Davis


Blurb:
For tiger-shifter, Samira Anderson, leaving home for the first time to attend Harmony University
should unnerve her. She’s never submitted to the fear of a challenge and doesn’t plan to start
now. Meeting her dorm mates and touring the campus excites her and her cat. Although when
she meets Gavin Stone, she’s not only nervous around him but fears she might lose the tight
control she has over her tiger.
After a bad break up with his high school sweetheart, Gavin has no intentions of repeating
past mistakes. Or so he thought until he sees the beautiful, smart, Samira at the dorm welcome
party. Drawn to her like no other, he can’t stay away or shake the feeling Sam isn’t telling him
everything.
When he discovers her secrets, a whole new world opens to him, filled with danger, unknown
possibilities, and a passion so intense it could last many lifetimes.

Excerpt 
If any more people piled into the dorm, Sam was going to scream. The ground floor of the
house was elbow to elbow. She couldn’t walk to the bathroom without feeling like the ball in a
pinball machine. The human-shifter ratio was fifty to one.
Sam quickly learned humans were pretty clueless to their surroundings—at least this crowd of
students were anyway.
“I hate crowds,” Jesse spoke softly beside her.
“Me, too.” And parties where underage humans drink and play the music too loud.
Camile had handed her and Jesse earplugs, but they only helped to muffle the noise. A
headache had moved in, and Sam was ready to crawl out of her skin. Literally. Her tiger begged
to go for a run, go find that stream she heard when she’d arrived that morning.
Suddenly, an odd awareness drew her attention to the entrance. Three guys stood in the
doorway. One of them looked about as thrilled to be there as she felt. Poor guy. He stood by the
door, his hands shoved in pockets as he scanned the room with a frown on his lips. Sam couldn’t
get a read on his emotions from so far away, but she could tell he’d rather be doing something
else. His friends probably dragged him away from his video game.
He had dark hair that barely covered his ears, but his bangs fell in his eyes in a sexy kind of
way. His wire-rimmed glasses kept sliding down his nose. Scanning down to his broad shoulders
under a deep purple button down, she grew more intrigued by the human. Something about him
called to her.
Jesse’s cool fingers brushed her hand, drawing her attention away for the human to glance at
her friend. The leopard lowered her eyes and withdrew her hand. Sam sighed and covered the
female’s hand and gently squeezed. Submissives weren’t normally so timid, but Jesse was the
poster girl for the word.
“What is it?”
“He’s cute.” She blushed and glanced to where the new guy stood.
Sam smiled. “Yes, he is, and very human.”
As if sensing her watching him, he lifted his lashes and stared right at her. Her pulse spiked
while her tiger purred. When he started to advance toward them, Jesse tensed slightly, but Sam
paid it no mind. She was too focused on the guy who held her captivated.
When he stopped at the table, she nearly groaned when his cedar-and-mint scent flowed
around her, alluring and intoxicating. Damn, she wanted to bury her nose into his neck and
bite—
“Hello, I’m Gavin.” He held out his hand.
“What? Oh.” Sam shook his hand and suppressed the urge to purr as some kind of electrical
current passed through the connection. What the hell was that?

Bio:
Lia Davis is a mother to two young adults and three equally special kitties, a wife to her soul
mate, and a lover of romance. She and her family live in Northeast Florida battling hurricanes
and very humid summers. But it's her home and she loves it!
An accounting major, Lia has always been a dreamer with a very active imagination. The wheels
in her head never stop. She ventured into the world of writing and publishing in 2008 and loves
it more than she imagined. Writing is stress reliever that allows her to go off in her corner of the
house and enter into another world that she created, leaving real life where it belongs.
Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee,
nature and hanging out with her kitties.
