Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Broken Faith by Brandy Nacole

Sci-Fi / Fantasy
Date Published: April 2, 2013

This was it. The moment Heaven and Hell would clash. But which unearthly being would win? The Fallen Angel or the Hell Hounds?

Overtaken by fear, I close my eyes.

Kayson is a Fallen Angel who has spent decades running from the Hell Hounds while searching for something that no one else believes can be so, not even God. Kayson is determined to find a Blood Child. But when a hound finds Kayson first, he is sure his end has come.
Falon, Alpha of the Hell Hounds, destroyer of the blood children, and devoted believer in his master’s plan, is bound and determined to drag Kayson back to Hell with him. Sabrina is a Vampire, a half-breed created from one of Lucifer’s original blood children. After years of hiding, Sabrina’s fate changes when she finds Kayson barely alive. Against her instincts, Sabrina saves him. Now she and Kayson are both marked by the Hell Hounds. Emma is an ordinary human, whose only problem is making ends meet, and getting over the hurt caused by her untrustworthy brother. Her everyday problems become supernatural ones when she finds Kayson and Sabrina hiding in her parent’s backyard shed. Kayson, Sabrina and Emma are unlikely allies, thrown together by chance to fight against the most powerful creatures of the underworld in order to follow their world-changing quest. But will the broken faith of one break the faith of all?


Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET
#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

I do think writing can be a career.  There are several options when it comes to writing.  True, it may not be the option that writers want, such as writing a small column in a newspaper or magazine instead of the big article you want, blog posts for businesses instead of your own, newsletters, etc., but there are options while also trying to reach your writing goals.  It is very common to find writers that have other careers while they work on their writing career.  But just like with any job, it takes time to move up.  The most important thing in conquering a writing career of any form is to keep yourself motivated while reaching that dream.  It can be frustrating, but as the old saying goes “Rome wasn’t built over night.”  

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

There are a lot of hard “parts” when it comes to writing, but for me it was the editing.  There are so many grammar rules to remember and mistypes and when it comes to writing a lengthy piece of work like a novel, finding all those grammar errors can be frustrating.  I have a great editor who has taught me so much along the way.  He not only edits my books but he teaches me along the way, something I am very thankful for.  I have seen my writing improve from my first book to my current work.  It has become very satisfying to be writing and see mistakes as I’m writing them.  That tells me I am able to pinpoint these mistakes, fix them as I’m writing, while improving my writing even more. 

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

I did not.  My aunt, husband, and friends help me when I’m stuck on an idea, but I am a very particular person.  When I have a story in my head and see every detail, the plot, and how I want the story incorporated, I keep it to myself and just write.  If it wasn’t for the fabulous use of the internet allowing me to research certain ideas then I would probably have more outside help.  I also didn’t have outside help because I never really thought I would ever publish.  In fact, many of my friends and family didn’t even know that I wrote until I got ready to publish Uniquely Unwelcome.  Writing has always been my passion but for the longest time it was my secret passion.  I love writing but having your work put on display is a scary thing.  I am so thankful to my husband for pushing me to conquer my dream instead of keeping it just that, a dream. 

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I am currently working on the third book of The Shadow World series and working on publishing my third book.  Broken Faith is the first book in my Spiritual Discord series, which will be released on March 26th.  Like I’ve stated before, writing is my passion.  I have enough outlines to book ideas to keep me busy for the next ten years or so.  Some of those ideas may never come to life because at this point that is exactly what they are “ideas.”  Everyone has ideas that they think about but some never make it passed the idea stage.  Not because we don’t have faith in that idea but because another idea holds us more.  When I started writing Uniquely Unwelcome, I was working on another novel.  That novel is still unfinished because my “idea” for Uniquely Unwelcome drove a bigger passion in my life than the novel I was working on.  And when the idea for Broken Faith came to me, I couldn’t wait to finish Blood Burdens (Book 2 in The Shadow World Series) so I could get started.  Even though I had a dozen “ideas” for other stories plotted out, Broken Faith came to me and stuck.  When an idea that comes to your mind is so heavy you have to get it out, then you just know it is what you need to do at that time no matter what else you have planned. 

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

Yes, I love to read.  My favorite genre is fantasy but I do read other genres besides fantasy.  I currently just finished reading The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead, which was great.  I have been a fan of Richelle Meads from the time I read the first page of The Vampire Academy.  Now I am just starting to read The Iron Kind by Julie Kagawa.  It is quite an interesting read.
