Interview and Giveaway with FM Sherrill and Becca C. Smith

Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

Well, there’s two of us: Faith Sherrill and Becca C. Smith. This is our first novel that we’ve written together, but we both have published other works. Faith’s book is a dark fantasy called Ivory and she publishes under the name F.M. Sherrill. Becca has a couple of series out there, but her most popular is her teen sci-fi/horror  series The Riser Saga. We’re two nerd novelists and when we’re not clicking our keyboards we’re watching sci-fi or playing warcraft.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

The book is called Black Moon and it is the first in a trilogy. It has fangs, blood, romance, history and all the romping bad-ass characters you could want in a paranormal romance.

Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?

Becca: Harry Potter because it sucks you in and is full of all the magic I wish existed in real life.

Faith: Shakespeare. I would love to be able to have the poetry in verse like they used to in the older writing styles.

Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?

Becca: Chelsan because she was my first. We both learned a lot from each other and over the three Riser books she made me a better writer.

Faith: Ivory because she’s a leader and a good female role model. She doesn’t break when faced with extreme pain and impossible situations.

If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?

Yes, it is a part of a series, it’s called The Black Moon Saga and the next book is Black Sunrise. There’s a surprise at the end of Black Moon, which sets up the next book and the mayhem that will ensue.

What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?

Yes! Faith and I have just finished separate novels of our own. Faith’s is called Cry Wolf and it’s a werewolf apocalypse novel. It will be published in September. Becca just finished the second book in her Atlas Series called Atlas: Grigori Returned and it will be released in August. We’re also working on Black Sunrise and hoping to have it out before the end of the year!

What book are you reading now?

Becca: 3rd Game of Thrones book: A Storm of Swords

Book Description:

Shea Harper is forced to stay in boring, hot and dry Phoenix, Arizona for college. But once she meets the enigmatic yet positively egocentric Lucian, Shea’s life changes forever.

She finds out that she comes from a long line of descendants called Vessels. In her soul is the key to destroying an ancient prison protecting the world from darkness itself: Lucian’s father.

Up until now, Lucian has captured every descendant except Shea. With her powers awakening, all vampires want to drag her down to the pit. But Lucian is territorial. She’s the first female Vessel… and he’s convinced she belongs to him.

Saucy and tauntingly surprising, Black Moon captures the struggle between burning alive with desire and castrating the heart. This is a love story that will drain you dry.

About the Authors:

Becca C. Smith:

Becca C. Smith received her Film degree from Full Sail University and has worked in the Film and Television industry for most of her adult life. In 2010 Becca published her first novel, Riser followed by the sequel, Reaper, in 2011, and the finale, Ripper in 2013. In 2012 Becca wrote the children’s novel Alexis Tappendorf and the Search for Beale’s Treasure. She is also the co-author of the teen graphic novel Ghost Whisperer: The Haunted. Most recently Becca released Atlas, the first book in a new urban fantasy series. She currently lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband, Stephan and their two cats Jack and Duke.

F.M. Sherrill:

Aren't author's bios boring? I always wanted to read one that went something like this:

F.M. Sherrill: recent citizen of earth. Plans on ruling the planet once she gets over the common cold. Or, F.M. Sherrill: time traveler. Decided to alter the space-time continuum by writing a novel, thus changing history slightly, which will eventually lead to the rise of a new human species.

But here it is. F.M. Sherrill is a novelist, A.K.A. an avid bullshitter; that's why she lives in L.A.. She's been writing for as long as her ancient mind can remember, devouring tales like an anemic vampire roaming the streets in hot pink heels, always thirsty for more. When she's not writing, she's making steampunk weapons, sewing giant plant-eater Mario plushes, making costumes for some film bloke or cosplayer, and sculpting/casting movie prop replicas while gardening in her urban apartment. Her favorite tools? A soldering iron, a blowtorch, a band saw, a sonic screwdriver, a replicator and an active imagination.
