Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Inquisitor by @rj_blain

Urban Fantasy
Date Published: May 16, 2014

When Allison is asked to play Cinderella-turned-Fiancee at a Halloween ball, the last thing she expects is to be accused of murder. She has to find the killer and quick, or she'll be put to death for the crimes she didn't commit. To make matters worse, the victims are all werewolves.

On the short list of potential victims, Allison has to act fast, or the killer will have one more body to add to his little black book of corpses.

There's only one problem: One of the deaths has struck too close to home, and Allison's desire for self-preservation may very well transform into a quest for vengeance...

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Writing is definitely a valid career choice. I can easily work eight hours a day on my writing, day after day. I treat my writing like I did my office job, when I had it – except I have a lot more personal investment in my writing. While I worked hard at my office job, I’m working for me now. That makes a huge difference to me! It’s much easier to put in eight hours a day or longer when I know I’m doing it because I want to. It’s like college for other careers – I have to invest the time and money now to make my career really happen.

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

The editorial process is definitely the hardest part of my writing process. I work with 2-3 different editors each and every project. I have to make certain I do my job so they can do theirs – and I have to swallow some changes I may not like to better my novel.

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

My editors. They’re my primary support. I also have a lot of friends in the Google+ community who listen when I’ve had a bad day at the writing gig. I’m also an editor, so my writing clients make a huge impact on my mental health – for better and for worse! My work with them lets me pay for my writing career, and I’m so very grateful for that.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I am currently working on the second installment of my epic fantasy series, Requiem for the Rift King. Storm Surge will be coming out in not too long – hopefully within the next four months!

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

I do! I have some fifty books on my to-read list. However, I got The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance (Brandon Sanderson) recently, both in hardback, so I’m going to find time to work my way through these lovely, lovely tomes.

RJ Blain suffers from a Moleskine journal obsession, a pen fixation, and a terrible tendency to pun without warning.

When she isn't playing pretend, she likes to think she's a cartographer and a sumi-e painter. In reality, she herds cats and a husband. She also has a tendency to play MMOs and other computer games.

In her spare time, she daydreams about being a spy. Should that fail, her contingency plan involves tying her best of enemies to spinning wheels and quoting James Bond villains until she is satisfied.
