Join Anna on location in Venice as she researches places & details for Fire Maidens: Venice (Book 7 in the Billionaires & Bodyguards series)! You’ll find out what aspects of a research trip she plans ahead of time, how she opens the door for unique insights into local culture/flavor, and how she lets serendipity lead her to unexpected, idea-inspiring surprises along the way.
Dragons, giant elk, and magical harps. How on earth did that combination come about? Find out about that and more on Fire Maidens: Ireland, including the genesis of the characters, my favorite scene, and what changed most from the initial idea to the final product!
With your help, I recently decided on the locations of the next few books in my FIRE MAIDENS series, which I’ve decided to extend to nine books. Now I’ve made this video to share the cover design process with you. I hope you find it interesting!
Today I have some fun games for you, all based on the FIRE MAIDENS theme. Enjoy!
First, you can try this memory game, featuring covers from the entire Fire Maidens series. How many pairs can you find and in how much time?
Second, puzzles - always lots of fun! There are currently three you can choose from: a Fire Maidens: Paris cover puzzle, a beautiful Paris banner puzzle, and this awesome Fire Maidens: London puzzle. Remember, you can make these puzzles as hard or as easy as you want. Just go to the upper right corner of each and click “play as” to change the number of pieces.
Finally, here’s a slot machine game, where you can try to line up three in a row - as in, three gorgeous covers or three shifter symbols. It’s totally free but watch out - this game is pretty addicting!
So, here’s a fun bonus extra. I asked my wonderful audiobook narrator Kelsey Osborne if she would do an interview to answer fan questions. And here it is! Everything you might have wondered about the working day of a professional voice talent!
Thank you so much, Kelsey, for taking the time to answer reader/listener questions!
