Interview with Author Rebekah Ganiere
Hello out there! Glad to see so many return readers and new followers today! Welcome to the Naughty Nights Press Blog!
Today I am chatting with Rebekah Ganiere, author of Red the Were Hunter. To find this and other incredible paranormal romance books, get yourself a copy of Beyond The Veil: Paranormal & Magical Romance Boxed Set (Under the Veil & Beyond the Veil Book 2), pour yourself a drink, pull up your cozy chair, and settle in for an enjoyable bit of relaxation time, shall we? This is one boxed set you won't want to miss!
I even have a paranormal romance, co-authored with the amazing Kiki Howell in this boxed set! *gasp* I know, right? It'd been a long time since I'd done anything on that side of the table, but the muse called and I am so happy to be back. *whispers* Snagged myself a talented co-writer, too! Don't tell her that, though. Might go to her head. *giggles*
Don't forget to check out our previous boxed set, Alpha Fever, for another penned by myself and Kiki, Cowboy Boots and Handcuffs, a steamy bbw, western, contemporary novella, book one in a new series, in fact. I know you won't want to miss it!
Now, on to the good stuff for today! *rubs hands together and flashes a smile*
Hi Rebekah, thanks so much for joining me on the NNP blog! I know you are one busy lady so I will try to be brief...I do get long winded from time to time. I'm sure you've heard that before, though. *grins*
How long have you been a writer and how did you get into writing?
I started writing in High School and then gave it up in college where I was on scholarship for Theater. I didn't pick it back up again until about 5 years ago.
Are you a full time author or do you have a day job as well?
I am a full time mom of 4 kids I homeschool. A daughter who is a competitive dancer. A son and dauhter who are actors in Hollywood and another who is a fencer. So, I write in between all that.
You write in between all that? Holy crap, when is there time! Geesh!
What are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
Best aspects are when you go back through your work and you're like, Holy Crap! I wrote that! That's freaking awesome! The worst is having to edit until your eyes bleed and your brain pours out your ears.
What inspires you to write?
Everything. My fans. My kids. My husband. Sexy guys. Kick ass girls.
Mmmm, sexy guys...yes. *sigh*
Is there a particular author who inspires you?
Lara Adrian was the first vampire book I ever read and she inspired me to want to write again.
What is the title of your inclusion in Beyond the Veil and how did you come up with the idea for it?
Red the Were Hunter. I've always loved Fairytales but I wanted to write them with paranormal elements. And I've always loved the idea of all the fairytale characters living in one world and being inter connected.
How did you conduct your research for Red the Were Hunter?
I studied the original fairytales and then tried to figure out the best places to put paranormal creatures in there. I did a lot of research on mediviel times, even though it's set in a fantasy world where there is no set time period.
Can you give our readers your two favorite lines or quotes from Red the Were Hunter?
Uhm… I love Redlynn in general and I love how she doesn't take crap from people.
"Then I guess you better start training the men to protect their daughters," Redlynn bit out.
"Surely you jest? It's been the Sisterhood. Always the Sisterhood. For as long as there have been Weres, there have been Sisters. They go hand in hand, they—" Lillith stopped short.
Redlynn studied Lillith's face, and Lillith glanced away again. That nagging feeling that Lillith was keeping something from the Sisterhood stirred within Redlynn once more.
Pulling herself to her full height, Lillith tilted her chin up and glared at Redlynn. "If you leave now, you'll be cast out."
Redlynn smiled slightly. There it was. The final ultimatum. She wondered how long Lillith had dreamed of this moment. The threat meant nothing to Redlynn though. If she killed the King of the Weres, she'd be able to finally leave Volkzene and make a new life for herself. And if she didn't...
"I can live with that." Redlynn walked into the forest.
What would your friends say is your best quality?
I'm weird. LOL!
Are reader reviews important to you?
Yes and no. I love when readers love and connect with my books but I also realize that not everyone is going to love my writing.
What do you do when you don’t write?
Cosplay. Go to Comic Cons and speak. Teach writing classes, aside from the other stuff with my kids
Tell us about your other books...
Oh man! So I have the Fairelle Series which consists of Red the Were Hunter, Snow the Vampire Slayer, Jamen's Yuletide Bride, Zelle and the Tower and now Cinder the Fae. They are my fairytale retelling series. 2 more books will be releasing in that series before the end of the year. I have my series, The Society, which is Vampires Rule the World. The last one in that comes out in May. I have the Shifter Rising Series which is werewolves in trouble, it's NA and the first book releases next month. I have Dead Awakenings, which is a non gross zombie romance with super hot, super poered zombies, or deaders as I call them. And I have my Otherworlder series. Which is a Fae with no magic who is a PI for Otherworlders here in Los Angeles.
If you could share one thing about yourself you would like our readers to know, what would it be?
Uhm… I was once almost eaten by alligators. Yup, true story. It's why I'm deathly afraid of being eaten alive.
OMG! No doubt! *shudders* Sorry I asked. Ugh.
Where can readers find your works, do you have a blog or website?
Where else might readers contact you or follow your everyday writing journey?
Thank you so much for joining us today, Rebekah. It's been a true pleasure working with you on the Beyond the Veil Boxed Set. I am sure readers will fully enjoy Red the Were Hunter.
We are going to leave them with a small tease to get them started, care to give us something steamy? *naughty grin*
Red the Were Hunter
"Yes. There's a grove not far from here. When you're well I'll take you there. You can lie in the tall grass and see all of the stars above. We'll go there and I'll show you the patterns I make with them. There's a dragon and a warrior. Mage towers and a giant cow." He looked over at her and his chest clenched. She looked worse. Her cheeks were as red as strawberries and her eyes as glassy as a pool of water."
"And I'll show you the giant castle where I used to dream I'd live. And the giant bird that used to carry me there." She stared up into the trees. "There's nothing more lovely than the stars."
"There's one thing."
Her gaze turned upon him. Her eyelids closed and then opened again slowly. Pain marred her features.
"I ache for you," she said, her voice husky and low.
"I ache for you, too," he whispered. Gods in the heavens, he ached for her like never before.
"Then why, Adrian? Why will you not make love to me?"
"Because I am trying to be a gentleman." He tried to concentrate on anything but the desires rushing through him. Her body called to him like a siren's song. And her words only made it worse.
"I don't want a gentleman. I want you." She laid her hand on his arm.
Her slender fingers felt like candle flames licking his skin. Leaning near her, he picked up her hand, kissed it, and then each delicate fingernail. Turning her hand over, he kissed her palm, and up her wrist. The silence of the forest was like a cocoon. Her scent drifted on the breeze, invading him.
"Adrian. Ever since I first laid eyes on you, I have been drawn to you. But these past two nights, it has become a pain that I cannot understand."
He trailed light kisses up her arm. He didn't want to think, just feel.
"The pain, the need inside of me, it's excruciating. Like I'm going to explode if I don't have you. Please, Adrian, make it stop."
Her words flooded into him. The breathy way she called his name was all it took. There was no stopping him now. If she were going to die, he'd have her die knowing that he cared. Tomorrow, he knew he'd regret it if he didn't. A tear dripped from his eye, and he kissed the crook of her elbow. Lifting her arm, she twined her fingers through his hair. They locked eyes.
The walls around his heart crumbled to pieces. Looking into her eyes, he saw it. Redlynn should have been his mate, and he'd give her whatever she asked.
He kissed up her arm to her collarbone. Peppering her, he kissed from her neck to her earlobe, down her jaw to her blistering lips. Tasting her hot breath, Adrian rolled on top of her. A groan escaped him, followed by a soft mewl from her. His arousal grew and pressed between them.
He kissed down the other side of her throat, moving her gold locket out of the way. She moaned his name when he reached the peaks of her breasts. Her hands grabbed his shoulders and her nails dug into his back, causing a rumble to escape his chest. His hand ran roughly over her thin gown, down her side, to her protruding hipbones. Digging his fingers in, he pulled her near and lifted her leg, wrapping it around his waist. He needed her.
