I’m hosting an interview with T. Lynne Tolles, author of New Adult Paranormal Romance “Blood Moon”. My questions are bolded, author’s responses are in regular font.
1) What’s the hardest part of being an author?
Editing – Don’t like it and have a really tough time with it. Not really sure why?
2) Can you give us a short synopsis of Blood Moon?
Blood Moon is the second book in the series. A rival witch family the O’Rielly’s have had dealings with in the past, appear back on the scene and they are looking to take back an evil spell that had been taken from them by the O’Rielly’s at the request of the town elders.
3) Is this part of a series, or stand-alone?
It is part of a series, though I’ve tried very hard to add enough of the previous book within that you could read it without reading the first. Though to get the best look at the story being told, you would want to read the other books too.
4) How many hours per day do you spend writing?
That’s a loaded question…since I haven’t written anything in about a month (and feeling rather guilty about that, I might add). When I am in writing mode I suppose I spend anywhere from 1-5 hours writing. I do try to spread it out as life does get in the way on occasion.
5) What is your favorite book in the same genre as yours?
I would say the Vampire Diaries series by L.J. Smith. Love her stuff and have read most of her books.
6) What are you working on now?
I’m presently working on a Pirate Steampunk book set in the time just before the American Revolution.

The gang finds themselves up to their eyeballs in family history when clues are revealed that suggest an evil curse is hidden within the O’Rielly Book of Shadows. An old family diary divulges the O’Rielly family was an integral part in stymying a power hungry witch that took the lives of thirteen young girls and clues to spells whereabouts seem to suggest they’re in the O’Rielly Book of Shadows.
One by one young women are reported missing from neighboring towns when two mysterious women show up in town. Is it coincidence? Or has someone come back to complete the unfinished spell from the past? No one knows but when Allison’s life is in the balance, the gang pulls together to find a way to stop the past from repeating itself.
T. Lynne Tolles can be found most days, juggling one of two cat muses and a laptop, tripping over an ancient Newfoundland dog and washing a never-ending pile of laundry. When life doesn’t get in the way, she writes paranormal romances for new adults.
Her passion for witches, ghosts, and vampires together with a light-hearted wit are reflected in her loveable characters and the adventures of mystery they unravel to find their happily ever after.
