Sunday's Author Spotlight: Peiri Ann



Today I’m excited to have author Peiri Ann on the Sunday’s Author Spotlight. Peiri Ann writes everything from YA to New Adult. Her books have received many positive reviews and there are more new books on their way. Time to learn more about Peiri Ann and her books.

 

About 'Burdened' (A Burdened Novel #1):

 

Eighteen-year-old Tracey Warren is a ‘run-of-the-mill’ high school student on the verge of graduation. She has her friends and her fun; she has life all figured out. Or she thought she did.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23460931-burdened?from_search=true&search_version=serviceHer pedestrian reality crashes around her after an innocuous touch from a diabolically handsome stranger. Just one touch from Nathan Newcomb and her head and her world spins out of control. Soon she discovers that the only cure for the uneasy feelings and pain is Nathan himself. A man whose very existence balances between violent chaos and rigidly controlled dangers.

Nathan knows that the life of a woman mated to a burdened Sephlem is destined for peril beyond a human’s reckoning. But Tracey calls to his desire to experience love in spite of the hazards. And Nathan’s impossibly potent magnetism draws Tracey into a bonding that will put her in mortal danger again and again.

Once the pair becomes one, the threat escalates and nowhere is safe. There are enemies that lurk behind every corner. But the greatest danger may be in the bloodlines that course through Nathan’s veins.

Can a love for all time survive or will their burdened souls surrender and fade away?

This book is available through Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and iBooks.

About 'Tainted' (A Burdened Novel #2):


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23569746-taintedAfter a devastating confession from Nathan’s sister, Taylor, Tracey and Nathan can’t catch a break. Influenced by Roehl, Tracey fights against the pull he has on her and the love she has for Nathan. Brought a choice of being set free of a bond she finds is not as profound as she interpreted. Or continue to endure the burdens promised by being bound to her mate. Tracey may reconsider her choice in choosing Nathan.

Just as everything finally seems to be looking up, Nathan and Tracey’s world is turned upside down when they embark on a suicide mission to rescue a friend. Old encounters resurface from someone who should have been destroyed long ago and new secrets are uncovered. Secrets that may have Nathan parting from Tracey in order to keep her and his mother safe.

Is Nathan and Tracey’s bond as lasting as originally implied? Or is it breakable, as Tracey is influenced to believe? Or will she stay with Nathan resulting in him conceivably choosing not to be with her.

Interview with Peiri Ann:


Tell us a little more about who Peiri Ann is?

I share a love in the creation of new worlds, different creatures, and unwritten possibilities.
Writing is a passion. I fell in love with it when I was a child and I am privileged to share it with all my readers. I love writing fun/tragic adventurous novels with strong romantic elements from YA to New Adult. My sub-genres are paranormal, sci-fi, dystopia, contemporary, suspense, and fantasy. My favorite out of all of those is PNR. I love romance with a twist, it lets me be creative and venture off to new worlds.

When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I’ve always loved writing. I started off writing poetry, I fell in love with words. I fell in love with how you can give something so small, something you can’t even hold, feelings… and feel from it. 

Who inspired you to become a writer?

I was sitting at work a long time ago talking with a friend about a book I had recently read. The book was lacking here and there and I began to explain to my friend “I just can’t find a book that give me exactly what I want.” Her response to me was, “Well, why don’t you write your own book and put in it everything you want? I didn’t take her serious at first, but after I continued reading other books and wishing they had more or something different, I took her up on her challenge. So I guess, I have to give credit to her, my friend at my old job, because had she not suggest I write my own book, I may not have.

What are your favorite books?

Oh gosh, that list can go on and on. Let’s go with favorite types of books. I love books that take me out of reality, that make me forget about the world, that makes me dream about them. Those are my favorite books.

What book are you reading right now?

Unseen By: Lauren Stewart. It was recommended to me by a friend. So far so good!

What did you like the most about writing your own book?

What I like most about writing my own books is I get to control the outcome. I get the ending I want, the climax I love. I get to actually feel and fall in love with characters on an entirely different level from being a reader. Authors have an upper hand, we know our characters like the back of hand, we know what drives them, what breaks their hearts, what kills, them and what makes them strong. That is an amazing part about writing.

Where do you get your inspiration from? Do you use your own experiences?

I honestly get my inspiration from everyday situations, sometimes movies, and sometimes other books. A huge portion of my inspiration comes from music. One song can inspire an entire book.

Can you describe your writing process? Do you have any sort of ritual you follow?

I’m going to try to explain this the best way I can and not sound like a total lunatic.
Me and writing, I don’t have a process. I just sit at the keyboard or phone even, and my fingers just move. It’s like I almost blackout, give way to the character, scenes, and events crowding my mind. When I come back to reality, there is often anywhere between two to ten thousand words on the screen and they make a story. It makes no sense to me, but that’s how it happens. I don’t’ write the story, they story writes itself.

What do you love most about being an author?
My favorite part about being an author is engaging with my readers and friends. I love networking and meeting new people, laughing with strangers until they become friends. The support and the encouragement you get some fans and friends. That’s a love you can’t find anywhere else in this career.

What would your advice be for aspiring writers?

It’s definitely important to cater to your readers. But remember, write for you. Write what you love and enjoy what you write. Everyone on the planet is not going to love your story, it’s just something we have to accept. But when you do this for you because this something you enjoy, the pay back is so much greater than doing it for the world.

What are your future plans in writing?

My future plan in writing is to write more book. Lol. I plan to explore other genres like thriller and maybe a paranormal read with no romance. That maybe be hard considering I’m a romance author. But we’ll see​!

About the Author:


A night owl with an interest in writing books containing paranormal aspects, new creatures, betrayal, romance, and unexpected endings.
