Tour Kick Off: The Nines by @karenmbryson #giveaway

Romantic Suspense
Date Published: April 13, 2015

USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Dakota Madison and Sierra Avalon team up to bring readers a new breed of antiheroes…THE NINES. 

Vengeance is mine not the Lord’s. It’s what I breathe for. It’s what I’m still living for. I live for the moment when I will literally have his eye for mine. It’s been two years. Two long and difficult years, but my plan is nearly complete. When I’m not in a hospital having doctors try to repair my ravaged body I spend my time on the computer, doing hacking jobs for large corporations and governments who don’t want to get their hands dirty or be associated with a job if things go sideways. But they don’t have any reason to worry. I’m meticulous, so I’ll never get caught. Just one thing stands in my way: The mysterious young woman without a past who desperately wants to be part of my future. I just need to figure out why…

THE NINES is an ongoing romantic suspense series. Each book can be read as a STAND ALONE NOVEL or as PART OF THE SERIES.
#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Writing is one of my careers. I also work full-time as a university professor.

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

The most difficult part of the process is finding the time required to do the business of being an author. Writing is only half of the equation. Authors also need to promote their work. This can be extremely time-consuming.

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

I think most writers have people who have influenced them along the way. I have certainly had a lot of readers who have supported me and my work, and many people who have encouraged me to keep writing.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

THE NINES will be an ongoing romantic suspense series. I have plans for five additional novels and will keep writing them if there is interest from readers. I also have a paranormal romantic comedy series in the works as well as a young adult science fiction action adventure series.

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

I read quite a bit. I am currently reading Thoughtful by S.C. Stephens, which I have been waiting to read for months.

DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet: If an avenger comic and a romance novel got married and had a baby it would be The Nines.
