Author Interview: Fractured Moon by ER Pierce

Fractured Moon
Aurelia Fridell Series
Book One

ER Pierce

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Number of pages: 300
Cover Artist: ER Pierce

Book Description:
Aurelia Fridell is a freak. The only werewolf who can't shift.
As her thirtieth birthday approaches, isolation creeps in, and worry settles in her gut. She accepted her status long ago, and yet lately, she's felt off-kilter. Eyes follow her, prickling her senses, and her headaches are getting worse.
Is she paranoid, or is someone, or something, stalking her? Watching. Waiting. Drumming fingers to a sinister beat she can't hear.
Time will tell.
Ceithin Starkley isn't looking for a mate. Especially now. In fact, he doesn't believe in true-matings at all.
While he is being recruited for a new job, a scent on the wind stuns him, and he finds himself fighting an inner battle he never wanted, yet can't ignore.
Sparks fly, as Ceithin and Aurelia fight fate, and race against a clock neither knows is ticking.
Will he claim Aurelia before he loses her?
Warning: This book contains a drool-worthy Alpha male, and a sassy heroine with brains and brothers you'll adore. A best friend every girl would love to have, and a terrifying road no one will see coming.


MRP would like to extend a very warm welcome to ER Pierce, author of Fractured Moon. ER, to begin, can you tell us who or what most influenced you to become a writer?
ER: Emotions. When I was younger, I had a hard time expressing my feelings out loud, so I’d write them down in a journal, or a poem. I love writing poetry and I have binders filled with prose. In 7th grade I wrote my first story. I did take a long hiatus once I graduated and went to college, got married, and had four children, but even then, I’d write poems. A few years ago, Ceithin and Aurelia showed up in my head, and I started writing in secret, little snippets here and there, as the movie in my head unfolded. Since then I’ve published 14 stories.

If you were to be left alone on an island, what three books would you take with you?
ER:  Tough question. Can I take my kindle? If I had to choose 3 paperbacks, I’d take an In Death novel by J.D. Robb, Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews, and Game of Thrones.

What are your most and least favorite movie genres?
ER:  My favorite genres are paranormal romance, futuristic romance (a la J.D. Robb) and crime drama. (John Kellerman, Patricia Cornwell, etc) My least favorite? I’m not a huge fan of historicals, though I adore Lisa Kleypas. I’m not a horror fan either. I don’t mind a horror plot line, but I don’t like horror for the sake of horror. I love Karen Rose books.

If you could choose any man for your next book cover, who would he be?
ER: A hot one? * laughs * I don’t have a preference, really, I just like to make sure the models suite the story, and aren’t solely for eye-candy.

When you are on a deadline, what aspect of your ‘regular’ life suffers most?
ER: One of the nice things about self-publishing is the ability to set my own schedule and deadlines. However, when my muse strikes and I’m on a roll, cleaning the house suffers the most. You can tell when my muse is lost because my house is clean :P

What advice would you give aspiring authors?
ER: Keep writing. In the wise words of Nora Roberts (paraphrased) You can fix a story, but you can’t fix a blank page.

What advice would you give seasoned writers?
ER: We’re all in this together. Writing isn’t a competition. We should concentrate on building each other up, sharing in success, rather than trying to tear each other down, becoming jealous and petty.

When reading for pleasure, do you prefer a physical or electronic book?
ER: I’ll admit, I think ebooks are awesome.  My house is small, and having hundreds of books on one small device is amazing. I still love seeing print books though.

From the first stroke of a pen (or laptop), how long did it take you get published?
ER: I published Fractured Moon 7 months after I first started writing.

Did you ever feel like calling it quits?
ER:  We all have doubts. Yes, on occasion I’ve had the “I’m quitting” bug. I don’t though, because writing is a part of me, and I need the escape and release. Writing is a lonely and tough road. Most art passions are. You often get lost in your own head, and forget to live in the real world.

Thank you for having me at your blog today. Your questions were fun and different. I hope you’ll come visit me on my blog, or check out my books if they pique your interest. Have a wonderful day J Namaste. 

Thank you so much for joining us today, ER. We really enjoyed the visit. Good luck and great sales with Fractures Moon

About the Author:
I'm a work in progress who adores dark chocolate, the fresh mountain air, and the sound of rushing rivers.
I enjoy the salted breeze from the ocean, and the warmth of the sun heating my body as I sit on the rocks listening to the waves and gulls. Just thinking.
My mind is a chaotic mixture of realism and dreams, tempered by my four spirited children and creative husband.
I'm a multi-genre author at the whim of my erratic muse. I'm a yoga enthusiast, natural food lover, and I love body art.
