Hello and welcome to this stop on Misa's tour of Eleanor's Heart!! I was able to pick at the brain behind the book and this is what she had to say:
How old were you when you first realized you wanted to write?Um… 34. I was a late bloomer, heh.
Most authors have an unusual story or way that they come up with their ideas for books…Do you have one?My ideas have come from other books, song lyrics, TV shows and even random interviews. They usually come when I’m not looking or even thinking about writing.
What was your biggest influence that steered you towards writing?I started writing fanfic, after being drawn into that universe, then expanded to original for NaNoWriMo and that was that.
I have to ask, what are the hardest scenes for you to write?I hate dealing with death scenes. Endings are also difficult, because they have to fulfill readers’ expectations.
Are sex scenes difficult for you to word?Absolutely not! I love writing sex scenes *grins*
Do you see yourself writing in another genre?I usually write sci fi, so paranormal is a new genre for me but I really enjoyed it. I love anything that’s “off the beaten path” as it were.
Has your family been supportive?
Are any of your characters reflective of you?
What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Who is your favorite book heroine?
Elizabeth Bennett, from Pride and Prejudice.
Do you have any unusual habits that revolve around writing?Not really. I just check email and Twitter before settling down to write.
What is you favorite mystical creature?
What were some of your biggest challenges at the beginning of your career?
How do you feel about reader comments?
I’ve not had many reader comments, to be honest. I’ve had negative reviews, though. They hurt, but you have to be grown up and recognize that not everyone is going to love everything you write.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Where are your books available?
Kindle - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008GHKV30/
What can we expect from you in the future?
I have an Earth-based sci fi romance out with Champagne March next year and a darker sci fi out in May. Right now I finishing off an erotic sci fi and then working on a weird western.
Where can we reach you and become informed of updates? My website is misabuckley.com and I’m on Twitter under @MisaBuckley
Now let's take a look at Eleanor's Heart:
Dying of a rare blood disease, Eleanor Franklin needs laudanum to ease the pain, often driven to steal in order to buy more. But when she steals a ruby she has no idea that the gem will tip her into the midst of a deadly species war.
Saved by Jefferson Park, she discovers a man with an even darker past than her own—he is one of the last true Vampires fighting to stop the eradication of his kind.
But the Sanguine aren't the only problem as Eleanor finds herself falling in love with Jefferson. It is a relationship she cannot commit to, as she knows her time is limited, and she will not risk breaking his heart.
