Q&A with Amber Malloy, author of Fear Nothing

Now available from Resplendence is the action-romance Fear Nothing by author Amber Malloy.

The author has taken a few minutes out of her busy schedule for a Q&A about her newest novel.

When did you become interested in storytelling?

I read all the time as a child, but the writing bug didn’t hit until after college.

What was your first book/story published?

It was a ghost story and is still my favorite to this day.

What inspired you to write Fear Nothing?

One of my publishers had a call for reimagining Grimms’ Fairy Tales. Since I couldn’t follow the guidelines they set forth, I reworked it and shopped it to another publisher.

What character in Fear Nothing is the most/least like you, and in what ways?

All of them have a little bit of me, but not one character in general. Bodhi is kind and well intentioned. Skye is responsible and nurturing, which at time I associate with myself. Most of the time life partner just calls me Demon Baby.

What is your favorite part in Fear Nothing?

Review - A Hunter's Angel

A Hunter's Angel 
(The Hunter's Dagger Series)
Written by: Cera duBois
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Pub Date: July 18, 2012
Pages: 212

Twenty-eight-year-old Grace Wallace has recently been elected as the new Police Chief of Clayton, Pennsylvania. Normally, the small town is peaceful, but lately there have been a string of unsolved murders. Prior to moving back to her hometown, Grace was a homicide detective in Philadelphia, where she helped track down a serial killer who drank human blood. The Clayton murders were similar to her old serial case as the victims' throats were slashed and drained of all their blood. Maybe a copycat killer?

The case is too big for the young Police Chief to handle, so the FBI are called in to help track down the killer. Of course the FBI agent assigned to lead the case is Grace's ex, Ian McHenry, in which she still has desires for. Ian wanted to be assigned to case as he has a connection to the killer. Ian is a vampire!

Review & Giveaway - Helens-of-Troy

Gilmore Girls with Bite!

Helen Bocelli, along with her Goth daughter Ellie, packs up their stuff and heads back home to live with her mother, Helena, in a small town called Troy after leaving her husband. In addition, there is a great welcoming gift for the two - a dead body on the porch on Halloween Night. The site of the dead man does not spook Ellie, but she is more interested in the local boys who live nearby.

     Ellie has a strange dream of a young girl and is shocked to learn the next day that a local girl is missing. Ellie is not like other teenage girls as she knows what goes bump in the night, and in this case, it is a bloodsucking vampire.

    When I read that this book was Gilmore Girls meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I had to review it as I have been watching the Gilmore reruns and I grew up watching Buffy. The three female characters are completely different from the Gilmores, but the quirky fast-paced dialogue is similar. The grandmother Helena is like no grandma I have every seen. She dresses and acts like a woman thirty years younger than her. I thought it was funny how the teenager Ryan was after her. The mother Helen has almost given up on her life and finding love. Now Ellie does remind of Rory Gilmore, except she dresses in Goth and has some supernatural elements to her. Ellie is smart, speaks her mind, and is more mature than most teenagers are.
