Interview with D.D. Miers, co-author of Gravestones & Wicked Bones

Coming soon from authors D.D. Miers and B. Crow is the urban fantasy Gravestones & Wicked Bones, book one in the all-new Shadow Creatures series.

Half Fae. Half Demon. 100% Badass Bitch.

My sisters and I weren’t born with magic. No, we were forced into it. Betrayed into it by the one person who was supposed to protect us. Now we’re living in a shithole desert town at the mercy of a sexy-as-hell Fae named Bastian.

So far, I’ve been able to buy Violet and Jade time to live freely, without being held to Bastian’s constant call. I’ve been doing his dirty work for five long years, but my sisters’ freedom is wearing thin. Soon he’ll summon them, just as he did me—and I can’t let that happen.

Bastian’s latest assignment offers an escape for my sisters, and I’d be a fool not to take it. But my target is more powerful than any man I’ve faced before, and doubly seductive. He draws out my inner demons—literally—and evading this attraction might prove more difficult than finishing what I started.

D.D. Miers has taken a few minutes out of her busy schedules for a Q&A about her newest novel. 

When did you become interested in storytelling?

It sounds like the answer you always hear, but I love to tell stories. It hit a certain point in my life where I couldn’t get them to quiet down. These characters and ideas had formed and grown and they needed an outlet.

What was your first book/story published?

Dark Summoner, the first book in my Relic Keeper Series. I actually have it for free at the moment because book two is coming out next month!

What inspired you to write Gravestones & Wicked Bones?

You know, my idea started with a setting. I imagined some dumpy crap town where you’d least expect supernaturals to live. Then I imagined what kind of people would live there? Not anyone by choice. And so was born the concept for Gravestones & Wicked Bones. A story about our lack of choice and how we (or Ivy) faces that reality.

What character in Gravestones & Wicked Bones is the most/least like you, and in what ways?

I definitely relate the strongest to our heroine, Ivy. She’s faced a lot of emotional challenges but she’s had to adapt and remain strong for her family.

What is your favorite part in Gravestones & Wicked Bones?

I think the start of the book, where you really get to meet Ivy and see this crazy, yet absolutely recognizable, world she lives in. I also really love when …well, I can’t say without giving away spoilers so you’ll just have to read it and find out!

What was the hardest part to write?

The middle, always the middle lol.

Do you read reviews of your books? If so, do you pay any attention to them, or let them influence your writing?

I do read the reviews (most of them) I think some can really help you learn about your strengths and weaknesses, others can make you feel great and others...not so great. It’s definitely hard to hear someone doesn’t like your book, but everyone is allowed to have their opinion. There are plenty of books and movies I haven’t been a fan of that others have really loved. It doesn’t make my opinion right or wrong, it’s just how I perceived the story/film. I return that same respect to my readers. 

What well-known writers do you admire most?

Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, Jennifer Estep, Karen Marie Moning, Chloe Neill. 

Do you have any other books/stories in the works?

Well, obviously I am working on the Shadow Creatures Series. I also have the next books in my Relic Keeper series coming out next month and then in the fall. I also have a dragon centric urban fantasy coming and many things with the fae and elementals. There honestly are so many exciting things coming in 2017 and beyond!

Thank you for taking the time to have me! I loved being here!
