AUTHOR INTERVIEW FRIDAY – WITH L.D. WOSAR

Hello! Today with us we have the amazing L.D. Wosar! *Applause*

Angelina: Introduce yourself please.

L.D. Wosar: Hey there! I am L.D. Wosar, from Las Vegas, NV for close to twenty years. I predominantly write PNR from YA to a bit more steamy fare.


Angelina: Did someone inspire you to become an author?

L.D. Wosar: My fifth grade teacher, Mr. Blevins, inspired me to become an author starting with brainstorming sessions. This led to my love of telling tall, ridiculous tales that became on obsession to write on anything I could find. If I had a story, I told it.


Angelina: How long does it take for you to write a story?

L.D. Wosar: It depends. My first published book, Island Stream, took me 35 years. The shortest amount for a couple of my books was 2 weeks. It depends on if I feel the story, as to how long it will take me to write it.


Angelina: Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

L.D. Wosar: I have a very vivid imagination, so a lot of my ideas will hit me when I doing something random…mostly, when I am supposed to be sleeping.


Angelina: What does your family think of your writing?

L.D. Wosar: My family is very supportive, though, sadly, none of them, except my brother and sister-in-law, have read my books.


Angelina: How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

L.D. Wosar: To date, I have written and published 27 of my stories – either solo or anthologies. My top three solo books I have written are Jagged Little Hood, Relic and most recently, Chrome Poppies.


Angelina: Who’s your favorite character you created?

L.D. Wosar: Kaysee Marie Belluomo from my Belluomo Vampy Saga. She is crass, she is foul but she’s tough and such a fun character.


Angelina: Who’s your least favorite character you created?

L.D. Wosar: My least favorite has to be the first female I ever wrote and that was Emily Coates. I tried to find ways to torture her or even kill her when I was writing Island Stream. She was stupid, very wishy washy and in my opinion, boring.


Angelina: Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

L.D. Wosar: I do hear from a small handful of my readers and what they comment on is how much they like my writing style.


Angelina: What do you think makes a good story?

L.D. Wosar: Strong characters for one. If the characters are weak or comparable to cardboard cutouts, there would be nothing to drive the story. Also, suspense makes a good story and I am one who loves to write twists.


Angelina: Tell us about your WIP.

L.D. Wosar: I have three I am working on, but the one I want to talk more about is Flawed Incubus: Mystic Angels Book 1. It is a rewrite since the original was kind of a mess and my head was not in it. I have teamed with my good friend and talented co-author, Nikita Fairchild, to write the series centered on Wilhelmina ‘Willa’ Chambers and what she learns on her journey of becoming a powerful force that could either destroy hell or bring balance to both Heaven and Hell.


Angelina: Thank you for hanging out with us. Please share your social links where readers can follow you.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW FRIDAY – WITH K.D. HILT

Hello! Today with us we have the amazing K.D. Hilt! *Applause*

Angelina: Introduce yourself please.

K.D. Hilt: Hello I’m K.D. Hilt.


Angelina: Did someone inspire you to become an author?

K.D. Hilt: I was inspired by my older sister who would make up stories for us when we were kids.


Angelina: How long does it take for you to write a story?

K.D. Hilt: Depends on the story. I’ve written some in a month but my works in progress are taking a couple years because they are longer.


Angelina: Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

K.D. Hilt: I research a lot for my information and get the ideas from really anything happening around me. I’m a Criminal Justice and history major so if I’m writing a mystery I’ll sometimes go through textbooks if I get stuck. A lot of times what I write will also reflect emotions I’m dealing with. I will also just randomly start thinking of ideas and don’t even know where they come from. I just zone out and end up with a new idea.


Angelina: What does your family think of your writing?

K.D. Hilt: I think they like it, they all said they liked it or loved it, but we may never know for sure.


Angelina: How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

K.D. Hilt: 7 short stories. My favorite would be A Homemade Holiday or Hope for Valentine’s Day.


Angelina: Who’s your favorite character you created?

K.D. Hilt:  My true favorite is in a work in progress (it’s the bad boy), but out of the ones I have out, it would be Ryder or Jason from my short story series.


Angelina: Who’s your least favorite character you created?

K.D. Hilt: Again it’s in a work in progress (it’s the bad king), but in tiny series that is out, it would be Cain.


Angelina: Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

K.D. Hilt:  Not to often mainly there’s a few specific reader that contact me. They all say really good things about the characters and stories. Most let me know Jason or Ryder and Makayla are their favorite characters or which book they like.


Angelina: What do you think makes a good story?

K.D. Hilt: A story that keeps attention and doesn’t go fast there’s a good plot and not just lacking substance. There should also be a high and low for characters.


Angelina: Tell us about your WIP.

K.D. Hilt:  I have multiple WIP the three main ones are the journal edition of my short story series, which will be a collection of said stories with bonus material. The second is a high school romance between the pastors daughter and the bad boy of a small town in Nebraska, although right now they go to a boarding school near the city of Kearney. The third is a paranormal Medieval fantasy book where the two kingdoms have been at war since the kings had become werewolves, the four main characters are the two kings children and are all friends.

BOOK CHARACTER INTERVIEW WITH Wilhelmina Chambers, BY L.D. Wosar

Hello! Today with us we have the amazing Wilhelmina Chambers! *Applause*

Angelina: What is your full name? Do you have a nickname (if so, who calls you this)?

Willa: Wilhelmina Chambers – but I go by Willa.


Angelina: Which book are you from? Who’s your creator and what do you think of him?

Willa: The Mystic Angel series and featured in Flawed Incubus. My creator is LD Wosar – who was Cerise Rose. At first I didn’t know what to think. First she had me as a geeky wallflower than a demon’s whore. When she changed her name I concluded she was indecisive but love how LD Wosar is writing me…as a kick ass, no nonsense woman who will rule two worlds.


Angelina: What do you look like? If someone were to play you in a movie, who would it be?

Willa: I look like my dad – okay that tells you nothing. I have long, wavy and sometimes unruly raven hair with green eyes so clear one can see into my soul. If I had to pick an actress to play me – I would say Mila Jovovich because she is hot and a feminist.


Angelina: What does your voice sound like?

Willa: Soft spoken and almost monotone.


Angelina: Do you have a motto? If so, what is it?

Willa: Do I have a motto? Daniel thinks it’s his way but girls will run the world.


Angelina: Do you have any annoying habits, quirks, strange mannerisms, or other defining characteristics?

Willa: I have a short fuse and I play with my hair a lot when I am nervous. I love Oreo cookies but scrape off the creamy center and will stuff hot food in my mouth without thinking of the consequences. Defining characteristic is neutrality and acting as a buffer for Ezio and Daniel.


Angelina: Do you have any physical traits that stand out (such as scars, birthmarks, tattoos, tentacles etc.)? If you have scars, how did you get them? If you have tattoos, why did you get them and what meaning do they have to you?

Willa: I have a huge tattoo on my back of wings with a set of eyes- my father’s eyes. I have asked about the significance of the tattoo but Daniel doesn’t tell me anything.


Angelina: Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

Willa: The eff word..too often for a lady.


Angelina: What do you consider the most important event of your life so far?

Willa: My mother’s murder.


Angelina: Do you have a girlfriend, boyfriend, a harem etc?

Willa: I am as single as the day is long and like it that way.


Angelina: Which person do you wish you were closest to?

Willa: I wish I knew my father.


Angelina: Why should the readers pick up your story and where can they get it?

Willa: Because if they like a strong female who is torn between good and evil they would like this one. Ezio thinks it’s all about him…but he’s super narcissistic that way.
