About the Author

Raven and Lain Bower are a wife and husband team obsessed with creating worlds, creatures, stories and chaos.

Writers of the screenplay, Apparitions, optioned by Joseph Leroy Studios.

Interview with Raven Bower

Holly: Hi Raven! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Raven Bower: Oh goodness, let's see. I'm obsessive and a coffee addict.

Holly: When did you realize that you would like to write and publish a book?

Raven Bower: When I read my first Stephen King book, Carrie.

Holly: Where can we purchase Primal?

Raven Bower:

Holly: Do you think you may ever go into another genre?

Raven Bower: Hm. Excellent question. Although we have ideas for stories in other genres, our heart is in the supernatural, in critters and fantasy. I don't see us venturing away from that - at least not too far.

Holly: Can you tell us a little about what attracted you to this genre?

Raven Bower: The magic, the unknown - the mystery.

Holly: Why this genre(s)?

Raven Bower: Fantasy, the supernatural, magic and strange creatures are what intrigues us. It's what we're passionate about and that passion will fuel the fire needed to take a novel from idea to completion, and ultimately publication.

Holly: Do you think you will have a follow up book to this novel or is it just a stand-alone novel?

Raven Bower: Smoke is book two of the Vengeance series and will be out in early 2013. It's a lot of fun :D

Holly: Can we expect more novels from you in 2012?

Raven Bower: Yes! We have three other releases coming this year! Bleeding Edge - which kicks off an epic fantasy series and Rags Beneath, the conclusion to the Apparitions series. Plus a fantasy novella, Nymph's Lair.

Holly: What is the hardest part of writing in your opinion?

Raven Bower: Beginnings! Argh. I swear, we spend more time on our beginnings than with any other portion of the books. So much of the stories burden is placed upon the first three chapters and indeed, if you haven't hooked a reader (or agent or editor) in your first sentence or first pages, chances of publication (for that novel) are slim.

Holly: Are you working on anything at the moment?

Raven Bower: Right now we're working on a romantic, adventure fantasy using some of the same cast as Nymph's Lair.

Holly: Can you tell us a few do’s and don’ts for aspiring authors?

Raven Bower: Do write what you love! Do NOT give up!

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Raven Bower: Thank you for visiting and reading!

Random Quickies!

Holly: When do you prefer to read?

Raven Bower: No time is a bad time to read. Except, perhaps, when crunching on a deadline.

Holly: Black or pink?

Raven Bower: Black!

Holly: Horror or romance?

Raven Bower: Both. Why choose between two great things?

Holly: Contemporary or fantasy?

Raven Bower: Fantasy.
