the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power.

Author Interview: Christina Henry (Alice)

Interview with Christina Henry:

Tell us a little about yourself… Are you a fan of horror movies? What makes your day? Is being an author the only profession you’ve ever practiced?

I am a fan of certain kinds of horror movies. I’m not a huge fan of modern slasher films but I do love monster movies and anything suspenseful and atmospheric.

As an example, three of my favourite movies of all time are JAWS, ALIEN,

and THE THING. All three movies have very strong atmospheres that shape the tension of the films. I also love Alfred Hitchcock, especially REAR WINDOW.

A good writing day definitely makes my day. By that I mean the writing is flowing smoothly and it doesn’t take me all afternoon to write one paragraph (it feels like it does sometimes).

I’ve done lots of things besides write, including teaching writing, working for an insurance company and selling books. I always wanted to be a writer, though, ever since I was 12 years old. Continue reading

Interview: C.S. Pacat (Kings Rising)

Would you say that writing the third and final book in the Captive Prince trilogy was more arduous than writing the first two ones?

It was the most enjoyable to write, but simultaneously the most technically demanding. The greatest challenge was making certain that the book hit all of the right notes, and was a satisfying conclusion to the series. But I loved writing it. It was incredibly exciting for me to have reached that point–there are so many climactic scenes in Kings Rising that, for three books, I had been yearning to write. Continue reading
