SupportIndieAuthors presents Night of the Living Book Blast!

Once again, it’s time for a #SupportIndieAuthors sponsored Book Blast event!

This time around, your spook-tacular event coordinators bring you:

16436732._SX540_

Adorable illustrations brought to you by SIA’s very own Featured Author of the Month, Melissa Jensen.

Although the name is spooky, there’s going to be something for everyone. On Saturday, October 24th, we will have dozens of authors offering scores of free books! As usual, in the week leading up to the event, we’d like to tell you a little about our participants, so we’ve devised this holiday themed mini-interview. Since there are so gosh darned many of us, we’re going to do things a little differently this time around. Instead of one very long list of authors, several bloggers will each post a handful of interviews. Below you will find not only the talented authors who I am hosting, but links all of the other blogs, so make sure to click though and meet all of our authors!

And of course, all of our books will be listed on the official Book Blast website:

www.FreeBookBlast.com

So don’t forget to mark your calendars for Saturday, October 24th, and spread the word about this exciting trick-free treat!

Tell us about your favorite, worst, most unique, or most embarrassing Halloween costume. Got a picture you can share with us?
One year when I was a kid I couldn’t decide whether to dress up as a vampire or a witch so I ended up dressing up as a vampire-witch. It must have looked pretty silly but at the time I thought it was awesome!

Life is like a bag of Halloween candy. Which seasonal treat are you?
I love Hotel Chocolat and they make a yummy set of Halloween cocktail chocolates so I’d say I’m them 😀

What is your name? 
Leiann Bynum, but my author name is S. L. Bynum

What is the name and genre of the book you are offering? 
Grim Crush, a YA paranormal romance.

Who will enjoy the book you are offering, spooky fiends or fraidy cats? 
Probably fraidy cats, because my book is more of a love story than a horror, even though it has a grim reaper in it.

Tell us about your favorite, worst, most unique, or most embarrassing Halloween costume. Got a picture you can share with us? 
My most embarrassing was probably when I went as a yellow power ranger when I was little, while my brother was the red power ranger. My favorite costume was when I was a witch in 5th grade, because I had the wig, hat, broom, the whole shebang. I even won the school dance contest with that costume. This year I’m going to dress as a character from my book, so check it out on my social media websites!

Life is like a bag of Halloween candy. Which seasonal treat are you? 
Candy corn, because I’m a very sweet person!

Who will enjoy the book you are offering, spooky fiends or fraidy cats?
Fraidy Cats?!

Tell us about your favorite, worst, most unique, or most embarrassing Halloween costume. Got a picture you can share with us?
I once was a gothic Raggedy Ann. Yeah, I’m a jeans and T-Shirt kind of gal so putting that much effort into my costume/appearance will almost always be disastrous. A picture? Haha, but then I’d have to hunt down each and every one of you.

Life is like a bag of Halloween candy. Which seasonal treat are you?
Sour Patch Gummy Bears! Once you get past the tough, don’t mess with me vibe, you’ll see that I am really just a quiet and sometimes awkward in social settings, kind person.

The Writing Process Blog Hop

I’m taking part in the Writing Process Blog Hop today. For those who do not know what this is, authors answer a few questions and then tag authors to answer the same questions the next week, and also introduce the author who tagged them.

The author who tagged me is Sarah Roberts, the co-author of Rokula, which is the first book in The Rokula Saga. You can find out more about Sarah and her work by visiting her website or on Goodreads.

What am I working on?

I am currently in the process of editing my second novel, Perfect Worldwhich will be released on 19th July.

Demon’s Blood, my first novel, will be released in print in July and will be available to buy at Hyper Japan.

I am working on sequels to Perfect World and Demon’s Blood. I’m also drafting an outline for a male-male romance/vampire novel, which I am going to write for this year’s NaNoWriMo.

How does my work differ from others in its genre?

My work rarely falls into just one category. For example, Perfect World is classified as science fiction but it has a superhero theme and a male-male romance storyline too. I feel that the different elements and genres I combine tell great stories that are quite unique.

Why do I write what I do?

I’ve always loved reading and my favourite genres are horror, science fiction and fantasy, and those are the genres that I love writing in most too. For me writing is a form of escapism and I love nothing more than to loose myself in the stories and worlds that I have created.

How does my writing process work?

If I’m honest I don’t really have a writing process until the first draft is complete! I never use plotlines. I know where the story starts and where it will end; the journey is just as much a mystery to me as it is to my characters when I first start writing!

Once I have completed a first draft I will go back through it and edit it and this will become the second draft. I leave it a few weeks/months and then come back to it afresh and start preparing a final draft. This is then printed, gone through and edited again to become the final version ready for proofing and then after that publication.
