Interview & #Giveaway: Unorthodox by S. Peters-Davis @spdavis788

Please welcome author S. Peters-Davis to Full Moon Bites for an interview! Read on below to learn more about Unorthodox, read our interview, and a GIVEAWAY!


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

SPD - Hello Holly, I appreciate and thank you for hosting me today at your amazing place. Let me say, you’ve got some great interview questions also; ) Here goes for the first one…I’m S. Peters-Davis and I write mainstream paranormal, suspense-thriller romance (with a generous dollop of supernatural), and I also write YA and mid-grade paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi, and supernatural as DK Davis.

I live in Southwest Michigan. When I’m not writing, I like to take walks on forest trails, look for mushrooms in the spring, sometimes fish with hubby in the summer, and spend time with five grandchildren, Dusty (Sheltie), and Crocks and Izzy (brother and sister cats…who actually own me).

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

SPD - I’m excited about the release of Unorthodox, A Kendra Spark Novel on Sept. 15th. It’s the first time I’ve written this genre in mainstream fiction and hope you enjoy Kendra’s stories as much as I enjoy writing them. I deeply appreciate your support, thank you.

Do you write an outline before starting a book or just write?

SPD - I plot the story events out with index cards (using Syd Field’s screenwriting way), then as I finish each chapter, I write a timeline of highlights, so the outline is finished when the last chapter is written. It’s a system that works for me – keeps me moving forward and makes the whole writing process move along smoother.

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

SPD - I’m an avid reader, so there are many books that have influenced me – Jodi Picoult’s books are great for emotional connection, Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta novels for forensics and suspense-thriller elements, Harlan Coban’s Myron Bolitar novels for suspense crime, and I grew up with fantasy and sci-fi from C.S. Lewis and Madaleine L’Engle. There are many other authors I adore, but it’s way too many to list;)

How do you market your book(s)?

SPD - I’m still in the process of learning, but I do know that ARC’s (Advanced Reader Copies) of a book definitely helps with book reviews, and I love doing book blog tours when the book first releases. There’s promoting on FB, Twitter, and Yahoo groups. Many authors use GoodReads for events and ads, although I haven’t done that yet. I’ve gone to a few physical book events, but haven’t been there as an author.

I enjoy book blog tours, especially through Bewitching Book Blog Tours. Roxanne is amazing.

There are romance sites I’ve listed my book on as well – those places also have book events.

Your life is an action/suspense novel; your stuck on a ship and it’s about to blow. If it was just you, you would jump overboard and get away fast, but there are a few people that were being held captive on the ship too. What do you do?

SPD - As any good action/suspense heroine, I definitely saved the day by unleashing my amazing ability of survival…LOL And you thought I would say something else.

It played out like: I warned the guys holding the prisoners, told them to jump ship while they had the chance. They did, thinking I followed them into the drink. Instead, I called the coast guard on my way into the belly of the ship, promptly released the prisoners, and we all scooted to the top deck.  Everyone grabbed a buddy and dove overboard. With the help of the coast guard and the GPS of my cellphone, we made it out alive; ) Of course; )

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

SPD - Read books on the craft of writing, like from James Scott Bell, and books in the same genre you want to write - it hones your skills…and then write like crazy. The best way to improve is to keep writing. When you’re ready, a writing accountability partner helps tremendously.

Can you tell us, in your own words not the book description, a little about your book?

SPD - Kendra Spark, a successful mystery romance author, obtains a new publisher contract through her agent and there’s a deadline to meet. Then, out of the blue, Jenna, an FBI criminal analyst and Kendra’s estranged best friend, requests Kendra to take the next flight to D.C. as her ability to communicate with the dead may come in handy on a current serial murder case. Derek, an FBI Special Task Force agent, and I’ll add a hot single dude, secretly commits to help Jenna on the case. The FBI Task Force Director is Jenna’s father and the killer’s end game. Somehow the elusive killer slips past the expertise of the agents, leaving Kendra’s ability the only way to stop him.


Where can we purchase this book?


It’s also available at other places such as Kobo, Smashwords, Barnes & Nobles, etc.

Can we expect more novels from you in 2017/2018?

SPD - I’m presently writing, Secret: At HL Woods – written as DK Davis (YA author pseudonym) to complete for release on January 1st, 2018. Plus I’m working on Malevolent, book 2 of the Kendra Spark Novels, hoping to release in early summer of 2018. And I’ve been working on a new project with another author, Jake & Sam, Twisted Tales of Freakish Fun (a mid-grade book of short stories for boys) to complete by fall of 2018 (or before).

Then I’ll get to work on Secret: Of Amber Eyes for mid-winter release in 2019.

Random Quickies!

Book Description:

Kendra Spark, suspense-mystery romance author and communicator with the dead, is requested to hop on the first flight to D.C.

Jenna Powers, FBI criminal analyst and estranged best friend of Kendra, gets ghosticized in a fatal accident before relaying all the details of the FBI killer case.

Derek Knight, a dedicated FBI Special Task Force agent, takes lead on the case.

The investigation into the FBI agent killings continues as Kendra, Jenna – yes, even after death – and Derek work together on the case before Director of the Special Task Force Jackson Powers’ number is up. He’s Jenna’s father and the end-game of the killer’s target list.

Somehow the elusive killer remains undetected, until Kendra’s unique ability produces results and a final possibility at stopping his killing spree before it’s too late.



Excerpt:

From the Author Review Copy: The scene – Derek has Kendra in a casual interrogation room inside the FBI building – D.C. location

The door opened and Jackson Powers entered before I could respond.
He glanced around the room stopping when he saw me; his red rimmed eyes spoke volumes. I clearly remembered his presence, a straightforward man, full of confidence and direction, but in this moment he appeared like a man broken. I rose and reached for a hand shake. Instead, he grabbed my hand and pulled me into a big bear hug.
“I’m so very sorry about Jenna. Sorry for your loss, for my loss…” Muscles tensed around my vocals and cut off the words.
Tears spilled from both of us. Derek stepped out of the room, clicking the door closed.
“Jenna told me she was meeting with you today, going to show you the city sights.” Jackson held me for a few more minutes, patting my back and telling me it wasn’t my fault.
The thought of the accident initially being my fault had never entered my mind. Why would that thought cross his? I stepped back. Obviously he hadn’t received the latest details of the accident, but even so why would he consider that I’d feel responsible. Even if I questioned that maybe I could have done something to stop her in some way, she did save that boy. “Not sure what you mean…in thinking it could be my fault?”
His eyes widened, maybe a little startled at my blatant question. “I assumed Jenna ran after a little culprit that grabbed your purse or something much worse. She must have gotten caught up in the chase to run in front of on-coming traffic.” His face softened. “Kendra, I know Jenna, there was nothing you could have done to stop her. She’s always been head-strong…was always
head-strong,” he corrected himself, then his voice cracked, and suddenly something occurred to me.
Jackson isn’t privy to Jenna and Derek’s manhunt for the FBI killer, nor the reason I’m here. Of course. Jenna had tagged along to certain crime scenes while she was still in college, but from all that I remembered, Jackson wanted her profiling cases strictly inside the building. She had access to all the crime scenes from pictures and files on her laptop. At least she always used to complain about his restrictions, and I couldn’t imagine he would allow her in the field on a serial killer task force, unless things had changed in the last couple years.
There’d been a few close calls on other cases, some of the agent’s family members being abducted or being used for negotiation, leverage. While in college, Jenna told me all the rules her father had enforced if she were to join in any of the FBI cases. He protected her, and now she had returned the favor…to her demise.
Jenna and Derek were hunting the serial killer behind Jackson’s back.
There was a tap on the door and Derek stepped in. His brows were drawn close, eyes narrowed, perhaps his expression of concern. “Sir, I thought Kendra might be hungry. She hasn’t eaten all day.” He smiled at me, and then looked back at Jackson. “I’m headed out for a late lunch and thought I’d take her with me.”
Jackson’s lips pressed together. He finally lifted his chin toward me. “Well, of course. We certainly wouldn’t want anyone going hungry now, would we,” more of a statement than a question. He patted my shoulder. “Go on, Kendra. We can continue our talk later. I’d like to hear exactly what happened to my daughter from someone who was there to witness it.”
Derek grasped my elbow and led me toward the door.
Instead of following, Jackson released a long breathy sigh and sat on the couch. “Shut the door behind you, Derek. And tell Darla I don’t wish to be disturbed.”

My heart swelled huge behind my ribcage, again the confining weight pressing in on my ability to breathe. I couldn’t imagine the emotional maelstrom Jackson was going through. I knew only my own turbulent ride. Now I needed to get some facts straight; it was my turn to interrogate Derek.

About the Author:

S. Peters-Davis writes multi-genre stories, but loves penning a good page-turning suspense-thriller, especially when it’s a ghost story and a romance. When she’s not writing, editing, or reading, she’s hiking, RV’ing, fishing, playing with grandchildren, or enjoying time with her favorite muse (her husband) in Southwest Michigan.

She also writes YA paranormal, supernatural novels as DK Davis.
