Interview with Dani R.R. Hermit & Nevi Star, authors of Monster! #FMBAuthor

Please help me welcome author's Hermit & Nevi Star to Full Moon Bites today! :)

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

Nevi & Hermie We're a pair of writers who have founded our own publishing label because we became frustrated at the list of no-no's on every publishing website that made us ineligible for publication with literally every company Hermie found to submit to.  Nevi Star is our resident artist as well as being half of the writing team.  She does all the cover work and official art on the websites.  Dani R.R. Hermit, affectionately known as Hermie, lives to write.  She has some stories of her own that she's working on while she's writing the Parliament of Twilight books with Nevi.

We've been together for 13 years as of this last September and have been enjoying all the perks of living-in-sin love as well as writing together.  We're looking forward to when we can get married, though the living-in-sin lifestyle does have its perks! ;)

Holly: Is there an author or book that influenced you or your writing in any way growing up or as an adult?

HermieI read The Slave by Laura Antoniou when I was a freshman or sophomore in high school and it changed my perception of what a book could be.

Holly: I know authors get asked this a lot but do you have any advice that you would give to aspiring writers?

HermieWrite!  Just write and write some more!

Nevi: Remove all
video games and other distractions from your computer.  And don't "pad your word counts," especially by killing characters.

Hermie Let the story tell itself.  Let it surprise you in the first draft.  You can always fix it in the re-writes and edits.

Holly: Can we expect more novels from you in 2013?

Nevi: Oh, hell yes!  We put out Ghost House #1 just a couple weeks ago.

Hermie And we have 3 more books scheduled to be released before the end of the year.  Inertia #1 in June, Monster #2 in September and Ghost House #2 in December.

Holly: Why this genre(s)?

HermieMostly because everything I write always ends up with graphic sex scenes dominating the plot line.  Erotica is the only genre that'll have me!

Nevi: I was corrupted by Hermie.

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

Nevi: Getting Hermie to turn off Plants vs. Zombies or whatever stupid game she has on her laptop now and get to work!

Hermie  The editing and proofreading parts are the worst.  Though picking writing over the multitude of distractions is really hard, too.  We're always like "oh, we'll just watch 2 or 3 episodes of One Piece then we'll do our afternoon writing."  Then next thing we know, it's 7am and Seth is getting home from her third shift at the hotel!

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

HermieThe writing itself.  It's the editing, proofreading, re-writes, editing some more, formatting, re-writing again, etc. that takes its toll on my mind, moral and eyes!

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

HermieDon't judge me!  I'm actually a very nice person, no matter what our characters try to tell you!

Nevi: Thank you for reading our books!  I hope you have as much fun as I did writing them! (also, as a sidenote, my wang is unstoppable!)

Holly: If you are self-published, why did you decide to take this route of publishing?

Nevi: Have you read our book?

Hermie  We systematically eliminated publishers by using their "no-no" lists.  After a couple of months of searching publishers and getting nowhere, our only options were to never be published or do it ourselves.

Random Quickies!

Holly: Favorite kind of chocolate?

Nevi: Hermie's homemade candies!  Especially the dark chocolate ones with root beer cream filling!

Holly: Favorite book to movie?

Hermie:  Either Lord of the Rings or the Hunger Games.  I don't know that I can choose!

Nevi: Hunger Games and the Neverending Story.

Holly: Favorite book or author? Yeah we know it’s hard to choose! ;)

Hermie Laura Antoniou

Nevi: Stephen King and Cassandra Clare

Holly: Hardback/Paperback or eReader?  Why do you like eReaders more?

Nevi: eReader!  Because now I have a library in my pocket and the bookstore never closes!

Holly: How many paperback/hardcover books do you own?

Hermie  Umm, a lot?

Nevi: Enough that we need an eReader!

Holly: Right now in your line of site, how many books can you see?

Hermie  Right now, I can see at least 100 and I'm not even in the "library", aka the dining room.

Holly: What book are you reading today?

Hermie A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin, though I'm nearly done so it'll be something else soon.

Nevi: I was studying Urban Shaman by Serge Kahili King and A Spiritual Approach to Astrology by Myrna Lofthus.

It’s been years since Siris and Julian’s boy band broke up and they all went their separate ways. Now they’ve run in to each other in a little redneck bar in the middle of nowhere, coming face to face with the ghosts of their past and the feelings they never quite grew out of.

Siris is here handing out golden tickets to some new reality TV show for the network that owns his record label. Julian is here to meet up with yet another new partner. On the surface it seems like a coincidence… or is it?

Neither man is happy when they realize that The Parliament of Twilight, who once ruled their lives, means for Siris to be Julian’s new partner. Julian worries about what he could do to Siris. Siris just wants to go back to being a mega pop star and has no interest in being a monster hunter. Thrown together against their will (and better judgment) how will these former friends do on their first case?

Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains explicit sex scenes and/or situations (including BDSM/Light Bondage) and adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.

Long, thin fingers toyed with the drops of condensation on the beer bottle sitting virtually untouched in front of the bored looking man.  Julian detested beer, but there was a certain protocol when sitting in a back woods bar like the one he found himself in tonight.  You drank the beer and didn't argue about it.  Anything else was a one way trip to an ass-kicking and he wasn't certain of his ability to survive unscathed.  Especially tonight.

Julian was hungry.  Bordering on starved.  He wasn't anywhere near strong enough to hold his own in a bar fight.  Certainly not strong enough to control his hunger and therefore keep anyone who faced him out of danger.

Under normal circumstances, he would never be here.  This was a place where feeding was out of the question, no matter how long it had been since he had a proper meal.  Ironically, it was his hunger that had put him on the path ending here.  He was under orders to meet his new partner.  It had been less than a month since the incident that made his most recent partner demand to be reassigned.  It hadn't taken the Parliament of Twilight long to honor his request and put Julian on temporary inactive duty while they sorted out Richard's claim of abuse.  He had thought the break would be nice.  Some time to gather his thoughts and get himself feeling normal again. 

Dani R.R. Hermit (affectionately called Hermie) and Nevi Star, are the writers who founded Wandering Stars Press.

What do we write, you ask?
Our genre is gay erotica, with a spice of horror, mystery, comedy, drama and sometimes a western or space opera.  We love boys loving boys (in all the wrongest ways).  If you love that too, then maybe we can be friends.  Both Hermie and Nevi have some solo projects in the works, but more on those as they develop.  You can stay up to date on the news from Wandering Stars Press on our blog or Facebook.

Who are we when we’re not writing?
We’re life partners who’ve been together 13 years through all of life’s ups, downs and craziness. Ours has been a long and sometimes arduous road, but it’s only made the journey deeper and more interesting, adding fuel and fire to the stories we can tell.

Nevi is a spirit artist and a shaman. She is a World Walker.  Nevi also does all the covers for WSP's books.  She is currently working on a post-apocalyptic pony novel of her own, a My Little Pony themed tarot deck and a spirit squirrel oracle deck.

Hermie has been studying tarot for 20 years and reading professionally for a small, private clientele for about 13 years. She is also a genius at making sweet treats – homemade candies, cookies, cupcakes. (All gluten free!) She does all the cooking for our little pirate crew (or we would all starve or poison ourselves lol) and loves her neurotic kitten.

What inspires us?
Our first love and inspiration is Japanese Anime & Manga!  We discovered Yaoi and it was all over.  We already had a love affair with slash fan fiction, so taking that to some anime based fics really developed our style into what it is today.  A close second is music.  We create playlists that are character, story-arc or novel specific and play them at top volume while we are driving, writing and sleeping!  We do karaoke in our living room as a means to cleanse our story demons and open up to the next day's work (and because it's a blast to get together with our pirate crew and sing our hearts out!). But we also love TV, movies and books.  You can see which albums, shows, series, etc. are our favorites by following our board on Pinterest.
