Blog Tour: Brain by @CandaceBlevins #interview & #giveaway

Paranormal Romance / Motorcycle Club
Date Published: July 17, 2015

Someone has hacked past Brain’s firewalls and sold the MC’s information. Brain and Bash are on a mission to catch the hacker, find out who hired him, and then make him pay.
Until Brain discovers the hacker is a woman, and just as smart as him. She’s so clever, he chases her a full week before he finally catches her.
She’s the enemy, and yet his wolf wants to protect her from Bash. Worse, his wolf is beginning to decide he wants to claim her.
This isn’t going to be pretty.

Warning: Fights with full-on violence and lots of blood, as well as descriptions of horrendous tortures to a captured female.

What is the hardest part of writing your books?

Cutting and slicing. I love the initial writing, and then the second pass, where I add in details, emotions, thoughts, smells, sounds, caresses, and other tactile input. But then comes the part where all of the unnecessary scenes and conversations are cut, and I have to tearfully say goodbye to them.

What songs are most played on your MP3?

I write to Strauss and Bach. I can’t handle lyrics when I’m writing — too many extra words floating around in my head, I guess. When not writing, I’m either listening to 80s’ music, or my thirteen year old daughter’s choices. Thankfully, I love her choices, so it’s all good.

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

I have an alpha reader, and then about a dozen beta readers, with a core group of five beta reader who won’t hesitate to tell me when something doesn’t work. I also use a content editor as well as an editor who focuses on grammar and structure.

I don’t know what I’d do without my beta readers. My stories are so much better after I’ve made changes based on their input.

What book are you reading now?

I’m currently in a manic writing stage as I work to finish Bash’s story. When I’m finished, my reward will be Dark Heir by Faith Hunter.

How did you start your writing career?

Ten years ago, there were so few writers in the BDSM genre writing the super-intense stuff. I read all of them, ran out of reading material, and decided to give it a go myself. I’d been writing Urban Fantasy, with no intentions of actually of publishing it, but thought perhaps I could tackle a book with two characters and no worldbuilding. It took me several tries before I had something ready to submit.

I wrote and published BDSM romance for five years before I felt capable of writing an Urban Fantasy with the intent to publish. Only Human was published at the beginning of this year, and now I’m having fun writing UF and PNR as well as the intense BDSM Romance of the Safeword series.

I’m so excited about Brain’s story. I’m married to a geek, plus I’m a computer geek, so I’m partial to them in my books as well.

My bikers are the werewolves who don’t want to join the Pack. The Alpha has total control over his people, and not everyone wants to submit their will. The Pack is run as a dictatorship, the MC is run as a democracy. The first book in the series was Duke, and Brain is the second. I’m currently writing Bash’s story, and I’m having a blast playing around in this world.

Thanks so much for having me on the blog today! I’ve enjoyed the questions.

Candace Blevins is a southern girl who loves to travel the world. She lives with her husband of 17 years and their two daughters. When not working or driving kids all over the place, she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming.
Candace writes BDSM Romance, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, and a smoking hot Motorcycle Club series.
Her Safeword series gives us characters who happen to have some extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work. Each book in the Safeword series highlights a couple with a different BDSM issue to resolve. Books are standalone and can be read in any order, with the exception of the two Davenportbooks, and the four Matte books.
Her urban fantasy series, Only Human, gives us a world were weredragons, werewolves, werelions, three different species of vampires exist, as well as a variety of other mythological beings.
Candace’s two paranormal romance series, The Chattanooga Supernaturals and The Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, are both sister series to the Only Human series, and gives some secondary characters their happily ever after. Her three paranormal series are written so you can read one series, or all three, should you prefer only a particular genre.
