Author Interview & Giveaway: Sherry Soule - BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN


We're happy to be part of Sherry Soule's blog tour for her upcoming debut BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN coming out July 1st! She's graciously agreed to answer some life-altering questions!
______________________________________


1. Give us the Twitter version (140 characters or less) of BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN.
Teen witch works at haunted house where she meets cute boy. She decides it's her destiny and duty to find out what is causing the mystical disappearances in her hometown.

2. What’s your favorite scene from BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN?
Where the two main characters actually meet for the first time. It takes place at night with ghosts, a wraith, shadows and has some great snarky dialogue.

3. Tell us about the romance in BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN.
The romance is really the backstory to the main plot. Trent and Shiloh do manage to fall in love despite the craziness and death around them. Yet it does put a damper on things…

4. What have been the highlights and/or biggest surprises on your road to publication?
The fantastic online community of reviewers and book bloggers (like you guys).The support and enthusiasm has been invaluable.


5. As a former editor what are some of the most common mistakes you see writers make?
Each writer has their own weaknesses and strengths. For some writers it is adding too much backstory or too much telling instead of showing.

6. What supernatural phenomenon do you believe in or wish was real?
Vampires and magick. 

7. Who are your favorites from the following television pairs?
Hey! That’s not fair. Super tough questions! You can’t make a girl pick. If I have to pick my favs in order, it would be:
 SUPERNATURAL – Sam and Dean Winchester?  
 Number 1 (They are just so dang funny and cute)

VAMPIRE DIARIES – Stefan and Damon?  
 Number 2 (Both are super smoldering and hot)

 TRUE BLOOD – Eric and Bill?   
Number 3 (These guys ooze sexy and hotness)

8. If you could go back in time to change something in history. Where would you travel to, what would you change and what three literary characters are you taking with you? 
Another tough question. Well, I am part Native American, so I guess I would go back in time and try to help the American Indians. I’d take Zoey Redbird, Buffy Summers, and Jacob Black!
______________________________________
Thanks for stopping by! You answered even the 'tough' ones and gave us a great excuse to give the ladies some eye candy! 
(Note from Jake and Gregory: We're positive Alyssa is trying to get a poster of the Sam and Dean photo and put it over her bed! 
Obsessive or just hormonal?)


Check out the summary of BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN below and Sherry is generously giving away an ebook!

Thirteenth daughter. Heritage witch. Demon slayer.They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse.Sixteen-year-old Shiloh Ravenwolf is a heritage witch from the Broussard family, a family both destined and cursed. When she takes a summer job at Ravenhurst Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes spellbound by his charms.Finally, Shiloh's met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent may be the next victim on the supernatural hit list. And Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him. Complicated much?It sucks to have a destiny, especially since Shiloh would rather spend her summer being a normal girl who worries about clothes and boys, not the supernatural. But she’s never been normal, and the stranger things become the more her own magical senses awaken.With cryptic messages from a pesky wraith, she will begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist and decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.

Followed Sherry's Blog and commented on Sherry's Character Galley! This looks like an awesome read!

Jenny said...

Um. Did you seriously just post shirtless pictures of Sam and Dean? How am I supposed to focus on work now? *scrolls back up to stare at them*

This sounds like such a great story, even though I'm a wuss I always enjoy a good ghost story, and throw in some romance and I'm bound to be a happy girl!

Tore said...

Trent Donaven is a gemini and is hot. Please enter me in contest. I would love to read this book. I would love to read all the authors books. They sound really great. Tore923@aol.com

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Great interview. You let me know there is snark (Love snark!) and at least 3 shirtless pics. Would have been a better interview if all were shirtless... but then I wouldn't have been able to read it! I'd just be staring at the pics... lol

I also love the back in time answer.

Eternal Night said...

I loved the Interview. And I too would be caught between all those guys. But I am not sure if I would choose Sam and Dean first, then Eric and Bill, then at last Stefan and Damon. Thanks for the giveaway.

Missie said...

OMG! I just fell in love with is author. Not only is she freaking gorgeous! She wishes vampires were real, like me and she picked my favorite tv hotties and hello, is there anyone better than Buffy Summers?!

Thanks so much for the eyecandy too!

Sherry Soule said...

You guys rock! Thanks so much for having me as a guest! :-)

And you could add a pic of Shiloh for the guys. LOL She is very pretty.

Sherry Soule said...

Great comments! You guys had me cracking up!

Sherry Soule said...

Wait! Where are the pics if Bill and Eric??

YA Book Queen said...

Wonderful interview! Especially the eye candy part ;)

Jenny N. said...

Why am I not suprised. I just knew that you were going to throw in a question about hot guys.

Lieder Madchen said...

Great interview! I don't think I have ever read an interview with so many pics of cute guys. :)
I loved the character bios, now I really want to read the book! Is it weird that I think Shiloh's dad is better looking than Trent? (Though Trent is awfully cute.)

A Canadian Girl said...

I haven't heard of this one but it sounds interesting. I'll have to check out some reviews before I decide to add it to my wishlist.

I haven't watched Supernatural but I love The Vampire Diaries and True Blood. It looks like I have a new show I should watch.

Natalie (Mindful Musings) said...

Loved the questions guys! (And don't worry Alyssa. I wouldn't mind one of those posters over my bed either!) Lol.

Aik said...

I follow Sherry's Blog. I learned that on her father’s side,
Shiloh Ravenwolf comes from a long line of shaman.

Linda: Happy to give you some yummy pics!

SOW:Great characters, right!

Jenny: Work? Why when you've got those hotties to look at!

Tore: I'll have to check out what Gemini's are like in love. I wonder if he and Shiloh are a good match?

Melissa: Next time I'll try to get all shirtless!

EN: I'd definitely pick Sam and Dean first too! I'm not sure about the others. I'm torn!

Judy: Trent is a cutie!

Missie: You're comrades in supernatural arms! Buffy's great!

Sherry: Who cares about the guys? JK. Such funny commentors. I re-did Bill and Eric. They should be there. Thanks for visiting!

YA Book Queen: Don't we all love eye candy!

Leider: We always look for any excuse to give the ladies what they want! Shiloh's dad is handsome!

Canadian Girl: I know we talked but just to pound it into your head...You'd better be caught up with Supernatural by the end of the summer...Or else? I really don't know what but believe me, you need to be watching this show! Look at the pics again and say I'm wrong! I dare you!

Natalie: THANK YOU! I have been validated!

Aik: It's no wonder she's special with the shaman stuff in her veins!

Alyssa@Teens Read and Write said...

And Jenny N: You know I rabidly grab any opportunity to find an excuse to focus on hot guys!

Orchid said...

I like the Twitter version of the synopsis, short, sweet and to the point (plus Beautifully Broken sounds like a great read).

It is only right that Dean & Sam are listed at the top for TV pairs (they're great, but I especially loved them in season 1). :)
