Welcome one and all! Grab a beverage of choice, something sweet and sinful. No-no, not the men. What’s the matter with you? You know the hands-on rules… The guest gets first pick! 😉 Take a comfy seat for another, or a first, spin in the Round Pen.
I’m thrilled to welcome my wonderfully talented guest today, Chrys Fey, who is sharing her eBook, Ghost of Death with us!
Before I get to the nosy 5-3-4 part of this interview, tell us a bit about you.
My name is Chrys Fey and in case you’re wondering…that is a pen name. Chrys came from a nickname that my oldest friends call me, but I changed the spelling to make it more mystical. And Fey is a nickname used for a person thought to have supernatural qualities. Since the books I’ve been writing half my life all have supernatural elements, I thought Fey was perfect. And that is how “Chrys Fey” was born.
I love how you came up with your name! Okay, I’ll begin with five questions, then follow with three more, and end with four final ones.
My writing area at the moment is a corner of the couch in my living room. What does your writing space look like?
It’s a lot better since I was last at the Ranch and answered this question. It’s in a corner of my bedroom now next to a window with a lovely view of the tree in the front yard of my new house.
I love new houses. I’ll be moving into a new office soon too. For a lot of writers it’s a life-altering event coming up with titles and character names. Others it comes as naturally as breathing. Which is it for you?
It’s usually easy for me, but the title of “Ghost of Death” was originally Diary of a Dead Girl. Since I didn’t write it in the form of a diary and I’m also publishing “Witch of Death” later this month, I changed it. As for my characters’ names, the characters in “Ghost of Death” are named after people, so that was easy. *wink*
What advice would you offer aspiring and new writers?
The constant shift of the industry makes me often scratch my head and ask ‘what next?’ So, what do you think it takes to be a successful author at the moment?
Do not overwhelm yourself. Stick with a few social media sites you like and stay active on
them, do a little marketing every day or at least a few times a week, and write no matter
what obstacles this ever-changing industry throws your way.
Oh, that’s good advice. Who would you like to meet in the publishing industry- dead or alive- and why?
J.K. Rowling. I’d like to have tea and biscuits with her and to talk about writing, books, and life in general.
It’s time for 3 in 1! I’ll ask the questions and you answer them in one word. 😆
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter?
Well done! 🙂
Okay, Flash four. Ready?
What are you working on now?
Well, I’m going to be sending my publisher the sequel to Hurricane Crimes (with fingers crossed) very soon and I am working on book three! 😀
I have my copy of both these books and can’t wait to read them (some day). LOL What are you sharing today?
Ghost of Death!
Jolie Montgomery, a twenty-one-year-old woman, wakes up in an alley next to her corpse. She has no memories of her murder or the night she died. She didn’t even see the killer’s face before he or she took her life. Wanting justice, Jolie seeks answers in the only way a ghost can…by stalking the lead detective on the case.
Avrianna Heavenborn is determined to find the person responsible for a young woman’s death. She gets closer to the killer’s identity with every clue she uncovers, and Jolie is with her every step of the way.
But if they don’t solve her murder soon, Jolie will be an earth-bound spirit forever.
I love her name. Where can we find you and your books?
Where will you be next?
Detective Reid Sanders doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but when he’s faced with a crime scene that defies the laws of nature, he has no other choice but to start believing. And solving a magical murder involves working with a witch.
Liberty Sawyer embodies the look of your classic evil witch, so, it’s no surprise when she uncovers the murderer is a witch that she becomes Reid’s number one suspect. If she can’t convince him otherwise, more people could lose their lives to dark magic, including her.
VOTE: Which do you prefer? Ghosts or witches.
I’ll go with ghosts. 🙂
Thank you so much for playing along Chrys! Wishing you much luck with your book(s) and writing. I hope you’ll come visit again one day.
Thank you, Calisa! I love visiting the Ranch! 😀
And the Ranch loves having you, Chrys!
Don’t forget to place your vote of witch or ghost in comments.
Have a lovely day!
