If I am not producing magic potions, traveling to far off lands and falling in love with mythical creatures, then I am awake - tripping over toys, chasing my kids and conjuring ways to unknowingly booby trap our house for my husband. (Yes its unknowingly, I swear I never placed the tiny plastic army man in his path for him to find in the dark of midnight!) I love my husband and my four wonderful children (all of whom help with the booby traps!) We are Nevadians and are happy, although I envy and miss the beautiful mountains of Idaho. I love writing Young Adult and Adult Fantasy and Paranormal with Romance, although you never know what could show up in my books!
Welcome Indie-Liscious author, M.R. Polish. I am so excited to have you here on the blog today. First, let me congratulate you on your recent publication of Wolfspell, a YA paranormal romance novel which is rapidly climbing the charts in the world of YA fiction. Before we discuss your book, can you tell us a little bit about your passion for reading?
What was the first book you fell in love with?
"Oh that is easy. To this day it still remains one of my very favorite series. It is the Savage Destiny Series by Rosanne Bittner. I will always LOVE Zeke from that series - he was my first fictional love. I have read all seven of those books at least (very minimum) twenty times over, and each time is like the first."
I've never heard of this series. I'll definitely have to check it out!
What’s your favorite scene from your book?
"Well, that question is harder lol. I have so many I love. I really like the pool fight between Victor and Es because that is when she really begins to use her powers, but I really love it when Ian enters the picture, all the bantering that goes on makes me smile. Maybe it's Ian that makes me smile, but either way once he's there I get happier."
I really love a great YA paranormal read, especially with lovable characters. I can't wait to read your book and meet all of them!
Do you have any advice for new writers?
"Don't give up. We are our own worst critiques and are harsh on ourselves, but whatever you do, if you have a story in your heart, don't give up."
I agree with you one-hundred percent!
What are you working on now? Can you share a blurb from your new book?
"Well, I don't have a blurb yet, at least not one I want to share... Those things are tricky to write lol. BUT I can let you in on my projects and give you a teaser.
I have just finished the first draft of Ageless Sea, a New Adult / Adult Fantasy-Romance."
Ooh! That sounds fantabulous! What's the scoop?
~He reached with his other hand around her neck, pulled her down to his lap and kissed her. It was deep and powerful. Her body burned as it connected with his on a level only known by them. Everything and everyone became a black void in their minds, long forgotten. Even Magnus and Alexis were beyond comprehension as the world swirled and carried them off. He made his claim on her with three words and a single kiss. She was his.~
"I also have a Sci-Fantasy (with dragons) series that I am co writing with Bill Morgan, called the Mysts of Santerrian Series. We just finished the first book titled Mark of the Dragon and it is in editing processes right now. AND All the Wolf Spell fans will be happy to know that I am hard at work on Wolf Dream, the second in the series."
Wooo Hooo! Both of the titles sound AMAZING!
"Chocolate! I am trying to watch what I eat and shed some m&m's from my thighs so I haven't been eating as much lately, but I love chocolate and I will say that so far all my muses love it too!"
Girlfriend, let me just tell you, I completely sympathize with your addiction. I cannot live without chocolate. If I were allergic to it I think I might just have to die, but boy would that be one heavenly way to go! LOL!
Thank you for joining us at Indie-Liscious, M.R. Polish and congratulations on Wolfspell.
With a death starts a new beginning...
Eighteen-year-old Esmerelda thinks she’s just a normal girl, but all of that changes the day of her mom’s funeral, when a warlock, intent on using her special powers, kidnaps her. Powers she didn’t know existed. Thrown in the middle of a magical battle, Es struggles to learn her magic while fleeing both vampires and warlocks, at the same time, hunting for the witches that can help defeat her adversary. The only problem is that they are dead.
Thankfully, she has the help of Jarak—her Guardian—who quickly captures her heart, but she wonders if she can win his? Just when she thinks Jarak is the one for her, Ian appears with daggers drawn to save Es from a vampire attack. Ian is cocky and rude, but there is something magnetic about him—something that attracts her to him. With her heart torn between two men, she faces the foes that are out for her blood. Can Es do the unthinkable and awaken them from their graves before time runs out?
