Giveaway and Interview with Jodi Vaughn


Alexis: Today we have paranormal romance author, Jodi Vaughn, visiting us and she will be giving away an ecopy of VIELED SECRETS to one lucky commenter. Welcome Jodi! 

Alexis: When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

Jodi: I’ve always had stories in my head. I even started to write down a few on paper. It wasn’t until I attended a one day writer’s conference at a small University in Arkansas and met Jodi Thomas that I realized I could actually do this. She told me about RWA and gave me some very encouraging words. From that moment on, I decided I made the choice to become a writer, and I have never regretted it.

Alexis: What made you chose your title?

Jodi:VEILED SECRETS was not the original title. Quite a few editors had read it and told me to change the title to something less generic. (No, I’m not saying what it was. Lol)  I started digging into my story and realized that this story is about my heroine’s journey to not only find out what she is but to reconcile the fact that those closest to her hide her identity ( that she has Fae blood) for years.  VEILED SECRETS seemed to fit.

Alexis: What are you working on now?

Jodi: I have finished the second book, VEILED ENCHANTMENT, and am plotting out the third book in this trilogy.

I have also started a shifter series that is set in Arkansas. So far I have four books written and can’t wait to start the fifth.

Alexis: What was the first romance you ever read?

Jodi: The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss. I was in Jr. High when my mother let me borrow her book. I never returned it.

Alexis: Ah yes, mine was Shanna. What has been the best piece of advice you ever received for your writing career?

Perseverance and determination are the key to getting published. Don’t ever stop writing and don’t ever give up.

Alexis: Thank you Jodi for visiting us on Happily Ever After Thoughts. Jodi is giving away an ecopy of VEILED SECRETS to one lucky commenter. Check out the blurb of this story!
 
VEILED SECRETS
When fairies and demons collide all hell breaks loose.

            Celeste Hart yearns for a normal life, but she has never fit in because of her dark visions. She vows to let nothing stop her from discovering what she is, good, bad or evil. But she is soon distracted from her quest when sexy Eric Nordstrom charms his way into her bed. He leaves her even more confused by her intense feelings for him and discovers their one night of passion has resulted in something that will change them forever, a child.

            CEO Eric Nordstrom has no interest in romance and even less in a relationship. His company has always been his focus. But he can’t stop thinking about the elusive Celeste, who has made him feel more in one night than he has in his entire life. When he learns of the pregnancy, he convinces Celeste to marry him on the pretense of keeping the company from another scandal while trying to seduce her back into his arms.

            Celeste struggles to fit into Eric’s elite world and soon discovers her visions are a result of having Fae blood. When the vengeful Queen of the Fairies sends a demon army to take her unborn child, Celeste must embrace her fairy heritage and enlist Eric’s help in her life and death fight.  Suspicious of a world he doesn’t understand yet determined to protect the woman he loves, Eric joins forces with Celeste to protect their unborn child from the evil that has invaded their home.

            Fate brought them together, will destiny rip them apart?

  3. Jodi,
    I haven't read a paranormal romance in quite some time, but you have me curious about Celeste and what makes her so special to Eric. I never heard of Fairies being evil and vengeful before. With all that a new mom-to-be has to worry about, Celeste has demons coming after her unborn child? I guess I need to read your book to find out how she wins that battle!

  5. I wish we could Pre-Order VEILED SECRETS because then I'd already be in line. :) I'm so looking forward to reading this story! Kathleen Woodiwiss touched so many with her romances, and her The Flame and the Flower, then Shanna, followed by The Wolf and the Dove, were my favorites. But, I *wasn't* in junior high when I read them. Ha!
