Author Tuesday: Interview with Rachel Rawlings

Interview

1. What inspired this book?

I was driving on I-95 and Heaven Knows by The Pretty Reckless came on the radio. By the time the song was over I had a beginning, middle and end roughed out in my mind. Par for the course when I write, we detoured a little. I’m a fly by the seat of my pants kind of writer so I learned a while ago to just listen to the voices in my head.

2. What was the most difficult part about working on this book?

Payable On Death came a little easier than I expected. At first, because this is a new series, there was an awkward getting to know you phase between with the characters but once we got acquainted it was smooth sailing. I really enjoyed working on this book and the second in the series is going just a smooth. Of course, now that I’ve said that I’ll hit the wall, lol!

3. Who is your favorite character in this book?

Jax She had a rough time before the start of her journey and has a lot thrown at her in Payable On Death but she perseveres. She’s tough and pretty much a no nonsense kind of girl.

Book Blast: City of Hope and Ruin

Book Info

Every night the monsters hunt.

A city that is the whole world: Theosophy and her companions in the City militia do their best to protect the civilians from the monsters, but they keep crawling from the Rift and there’s nowhere to run. Theosophy knows she’ll die fighting. It’s the best kind of death she’s seen, and at least she can save lives in the meantime.

They say the Scarred carve you up while you’re still alive.

A village in the shadow of a forest: Refugees from the border whisper about the oncoming Scarred, but Briony can’t convince her brother to relocate his children to safety. Briony will do anything to protect them. She owes them that much, even if it means turning to forbidden magic.

When Theosophy and Briony accidentally make contact across the boundaries of their worlds, they realize that solutions might finally be within reach. A world beyond the City would give Theosophy’s people an escape, and the City’s warriors could help Briony protect her family from the Scarred. Each woman sees in the other a strength she lacks—and maybe something more.

All they need to do is find a way across the dimensions to each other before their enemies close in.

City of Hope and Ruin is on sale for $0.99 for Kindle or Nook, and here is a multi-region buy link for ebook.
