Mini Interview and giveaway: Sarah-Jane Lehoux - Thief


Please help me welcome Sarah Jane Lehoux to my blog today. There will be a giveaway at the end, and it will be open to all :) Good luck!

Welcome!

Who is Sarah-Jane?
1. Sarah is an introvert with a love of animals, the paranormal, and pretty much anything weird or macabre. She is gradually becoming a hermit thanks to an anxiety disorder, and her general inability to figure out social etiquette. She gets her inspiration from a sleep disorder which produces some wacked out waking dreams and hallucinations, and strives for originality and quirkiness in everything she writes. Growing up, she wanted to be a pirate, then an archeologist, then a primatologist, and finally decided that she’s not cut out for anything other than telling stories. Her greatest ambitions are to explore the catacombs of Paris and convince her husband to take a Hippo Tour in Toronto with her. If she ever becomes a successful author, she’ll buy a Queen Anne style house in the middle of nowhere, zombie proof it, and install a hidden door that leads to a turret room, where she can sit on rainy days and freak out anyone who happens upon her estate. Plus she’d get her cats a puppy. Because puppies are cute, and she thinks her cats would appreciate the gesture.

Why is this the series to read?
2. Reason 1: No one sparkles, and the female characters don’t put up with douchey, abusive behaviour from so called Alpha males. There are consequences, and there is more at stake than just getting two characters together.
    Reason 2: A sexy dark elf named Revik will rock your world.
    Reason 3: This ain’t your daddy’s fantasy. It’s a new spin on the genre. Gritty, realistic, unpredictable, and emotionally involving.

3. Why fantasy?
 I’m a big fan of hyperbole. I love using over the top expressions to get my point across. It’s the same with crafting a story. I take average, everyday characters and plunk them down in the middle of extraordinary circumstances to see how they will react. By doing so, I believe I can better examine human nature and the human condition. Strip away the magic and monsters, and at its heart the Sevy series is about people trying to do the best they can with their lot in life.

Thanks!

The Blurb for Thief:

In the crumbling city of Eloria, there is one indisputable fact: everyone has a price. Protestations of morality and better judgment have little meaning when confronted with the chance to obtain the unobtainable. The only question remaining is just how much a person is willing to sacrifice in order to win their heart’s desire.

Sevy has always been a quick study in the wicked ways of Eloria. She has no qualms about taking what she wants, and when the love of her life is mysteriously murdered, Sevy will stop at nothing to get him back. Elvish black magic, necromancy and demonic pacts are of little consequence if it means she can once again have her beloved at her side. But is she willing to murder her only friend to get the job done?

  2. I'm not usually a fan of fantasy but this series sounds amazing!

    Great interview - I thought I was reading my own bio there until you got to the writing part. Sadly I have no talent in that area.

    Thanks for the giveaway :-)

  24. I love this part of the interview: "Plus she’d get her cats a puppy. Because puppies are cute, and she thinks her cats would appreciate the gesture." - Couple of weeks ago I told DH our kitties wanted a puppy and he said our older cat will commit suicide if we get a dog, he's not fun nor is our older cat.
    Thank you for the opportunity and good luck to me :)
