Guest Blog Feature by the lovely Kindra Sowder

guestblogMy soon to be best friend, Kindra Sowder featured me in a guest blog post earlier today. Since the book isn't out yet, it's nothing more than a mere author bio and a former blurb for The Dark World: Book 1, but according to Kindra, it seems to be drawing a lot of attention to her site. Which is incredible for me because I had been going through this very long stage of not really sharing anything on social networks - the simple fact was I felt like I had nothing to truly share. Because my book wasn't yet out I felt as though I had nothing 'worth' sharing - no product, no interest.

This guest blog proves me wrong.

Since it's posting earlier today, Kindra's told me it's seen 42 page views and its rising, whereas a few other authors with Permuted I respect the hell out of have said they think I rock and other positive things.

It's a huge boost to the self-esteem and amazing to know that my fellow colleagues see me as someone worthy to indulge in the written word with and even WANT to read my book when it comes out next year.

I mean the more I read their work, the more blown away I am by the group of amazing people I've gratefully been chosen to produce content alongside.

I know this sounds like a massive circle jerk, but really, Permutants (that's what we call each other, shush), are extremely talented authors and all of the work I've read (in pictures below) from them I haven't disliked yet.

I wish to do their affinity for me justice once The Dark World Series gets rolling, and who knows, I may even gain a few people outside of we Permutants that like my work. :)

Interview from Romania!

On Goodreads, I got this message: andrexinterviewAnd replied back in the positive (of course)!

Here's the interview! (His book-review blog is all mostly in Romanian.)

1. Describe yourself in a word.

Ambitious

2. What's your favourite book/author?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling but my favorite author, I'd say is Edgar Allan Poe.

3. What's the advice that you'd give to the young writers?

Never give up, keep writing, keep honing your craft, write, write, write, and above all, believe in your story/poem...etc. You can do it and if you're writing, you're already living your dream.

4. Tell us something about your other passions.

Besides writing, I enjoy acting and hope to one day act in indie films and other ventures I create. I write scripts as well. I enjoy video games, creating shirts in my e-store for my books. 5. What do you think about Romania?

I have never been to Romania but I'd love to go one day.

6. What kind of music do you like?

I love rock, metal, classic rock, some pop, and some hip-hop. I mostly love everything, but rock takes a great precedent over other genres for me.

7. Tell us something about your book.

I'll just give you the blurb:

"Her name...is Alexandria Stone."

These are some of the last words Xavier Delacroix hears from his beloved Eleanor Black...just before she bursts into a Lycan Creature. And if this wasn't enough to rattle Xavier's brilliant mind, other Vampires - namely Dracula - are becoming elusive and speaking only in vague air about Xavier's supposedly brilliant blood.

But with a human to find, Lycans to kill, and questions to ask, Xavier is not so sure what to believe anymore...or who.

8. Do you have a message for your romanian fans?

Oh yes! Thank you so much for having an interest in my story and wanting it in your lovely country. :)

9. What do you think about my blog?

I just checked it out and I love it. I love the book reviews that you guys do and spreading the word about new authors and their books. It's pretty awesome.

Is there any chance that you can give us a copy of your book and some bookmarks&swags for a giveaway?

I just may be able to!

Thank you so much for the interview Andrex, it was illuminating! And I hope your readers enjoy The Dark World and The Immortal's Guide!

Keep your bite,
