The wonderful thing about reviewing books is you often get to have fascinating conversations with authors. I am especially fond of getting in touch with newer authors to talk about their work and see what I can do to signal boost their releases. I was fortunate enough to run into Ms. Damask and merrily subjected her to a handful of questions.
Me– What has it been like, trying to publish an urban fantasy book in Singapore? What sorts of walls did you run into?
Me– You have produced a good number of short stories, and now a novel, since having your daughters. How hard is it to find some good ‘writing time’ with children?
Me– Tell us about the World of the Lang
Me– Tell us a bit about Jan Xu. How does Marianne fit into the picture?
Marianne is her younger sister. As we know, there are always problems between sisters.
Me– What books or authors have influenced you the most? Are there any books you have utterly worn out from reading?
Me– Who is your favorite lycanthrope/shifter?
Wolf At the Door will be released Monday, April 4th, through Lyrical Press in digital format (.epub, .pdf, .lit, .prc)
The official book blurb-
“Being an ex-teen vigilante comes with its own set of problems.
Housewife, ex-teen vigilante…and shape-shifting wolf…Jan Xu has enough problems without adding her sister’s to the mix. Marianne is returning to Singapore and she’s filled with strange ideas. She’s also not alone. She’s coming home with a new boyfriend who has a dark agenda of his own.
With sibling rivalry threatening the inevitable: a battle-to-the-death with fang and claw, Jan and Marianne must overcome their issues if they’re ever going to find peace within their troubled relationship.”
