Blog Tour, Interview, & Giveaway: Shadowguard series by Michelle Zink

Today on Waves of Fiction we are honored to have Michelle Zink with us as part of a blog tour hosted by Swoon Romance!  Michelle was kind enough to stop by and answer a few of my questions regarding her Shadowguard series.

1. Describe the Shadowguard series in Five words or less.
Dark, sexy, and different!

2. I really enjoyed how we get to see bits of the big overall storyline in each individual novella, how many books are you planning?
I have a three-novella arc and a ten-novella arc. Which one I use depends on how these first three are received. I hope your readers love them, because I'd love to write more!

3.Can you give us a glimpse into Temptation's Fire?
In Temptation's Fire we get to know Ivan, resident pain in in the ass and brother to Scarlet and Lily. Ivan has a reputation for being an entitled asshole, but Maggie, an up-and-coming journalist with secrets of her own, makes him want to be a better man. There's just one problem; as someone outside the Shadowguard, Maggie can never know who -- and what -- Ivan is. By the end of Temptation's Fire, readers will have a good feel for the Shadowguard's first family - Scarlet, Lily, and Ivan. If I continue the series, it will be to focus on the other warriors of the Shadowguard.

4.Do you find yourself integrating people you know in real life into your books?
Not really! My characters seem to come to me from the magical story-giving ether. ;)

5.What are you currently working on now?
I'm working on a soon-to-be announced YA project, waiting to hear on another YA project that's currently out on submission, and I'm about halfway done with a full-length adult novel with the working title LUSUS NATURAE (I haven't revealed that anywhere, ever!). I'm excited about 2013. I have some really exciting stuff in the works and hope your readers will visit me on Facebook or at my blog to stay up-to-date on all the news.

Thanks Michelle for stopping by and for telling us the working title for your new project!  I for one can't wait to read more about it!

I really enjoyed reading Temptation's Heat and Temptation's Kiss.  They were very steamy and the world Michelle has written is absolutely amazing.  My only complaint is that I wish they were longer!  I want to know more about this world and these characters that are by far some of my favorites ever.  If you haven't heard of this series take a look below for more information..
