Tour Kick Off - Project Wolf by @serenawalken - #giveaway

Fantasy Romance

Date Published: January 13, 2014

Buy. Zoo. Execution. Roxie's fate must be decided and Hero knows only too well that mankind fears what it doesn't understand.
A werewolf romance with a strange twist.

Roxie doesn't know why project wolves keep coming after her. Her hero is always there to stop them, but after a private confession, she never wants to see him again. Until she turns into a wolf with tiger colors.

Hero didn't plan it. Scent overrode common sense that night with Roxie Malone. Instead of any shame though, Roxie didn't remember the event. She blamed him for it and never wanted to see him again. Not even when he's saving her.
As she becomes a wolf with strange colors though, Hero realizes she isn't like him after all. Soon the whole world will too.

*Project Wolf is actually a story that happens one generation before the events of an apocalypse.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
It depends on your definition of career. If you mean something I can do that will let me retire one day, probably not. If you mean my lifelong purpose, then yes. I write to be heard and to share the thoughts in my head. I would do it anyway even without the money because these thoughts, desires, and nightmares all dance in my head and never come out until I write it. Getting paid really only gets me the next editing and covers. If it actually paid off one day, like really big, and I could simply write for a living, that would be wonderful. If it doesn’t though, I will be doing the same thing the rest of my life anyway. It’s not something I can change about myself.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Making sure that I put the audience first. My first book I ever published didn’t have problems with grammar, but many people don’t like it because I wrote it the way I wanted it. As an author, I don’t compromise my vision (I know what happens, who ends up with who, the basic storyline) but it’s my duty as well to entertain the person reading it. I must accept there are limits as to what people want, what people can handle, what they would think is boring and the style that they like.
It took me at least four years to nail it. I had to do a lot of writing and experimentation to mix my style with something the reader appreciated as well.
#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
Nope. No, everything was done with the help of my husband and selling and breeding of our tarantulas (which helps with covers and editing). Since they are family too, I would have to say no. My cat Malachite certainly doesn’t help though, so it goes both ways.
#4 – What is next for your writing?
I have explored different genres going on six years, and I am at home with my Love Must Survive Series. I am going to stick with a sweet/more than sweet personality so I can’t get pegged into either sweet romance author or erotic romance author. I write romance, I have done so even when I tried not to, so I feel comfortable in the genre. I am going to be focusing mostly on my Love Must Survive books, but I also have plans for a Fantasy Romance Series called The Sealing. It’s going to be four novellas long.
#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
I used to read voraciously, but I now write a great deal more. However, I still read, I have just switched to novellas. Single adventures I can finish in a day or two let me fall into a world before my busy life gets interrupted again. Oftentimes I like to listen to them on text to speech while I’m cooking, cleaning, or when Hello Kitty DVD’s are running on my TV. I just finished a novella called Good Eats. It was a good horror zombie novel, southern little girl style. It crushed me, I loved it.

DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet:
Sometimes you have no choice but to trust in the one you don’t want to trust if you want to make it out alive. Done in 2 versions for the readers comfort level. #werewolf rom

This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3?
I jam out to Aqua on CD when I do dishes still. I really need to upgrade my Barbie Girl, don’t I?:)
#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate and vanilla twisted. Also, if you add in marshmallow I hear it opens a stairway to heaven.
#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?
Mashed potatoes every single time, home made and dripping with fattening gravy.
#4 – Comedy or Drama?
Both. You can’t have a decent comedy without drama, and drama with no comedy kills everything into depression.
#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks?
I haven’t read either of them, I grew up a Shel Silverstein lover. To this day I still know the exact location of Where the Sidewalk Ends is at.
#6 – Fantasy or Reality?
Fantasy. Every time.
#7 – Call or Text?
I don’t have a text function, so I guess call.
#8 – Public School or Home School?
#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate
Hot Chocolate, two bags, with Jet Puffed marshmallows.
#10 – eBook or Paperback?

Usually eBook but if I really love something, I get paperback as well.

Serena Walken is the author that should strike fear and love in the hearts of her audience. She writes books about love, but with an ending of the world twist. No two books in her series are exactly alike or she would die of boredom. Some of her books are more romantic comedy, while some verge on horror. A mixed bag as well as a mixed up author, but everything ends up with a romantic happily ever after.
