Q/A with Danielle
How did you come up with the idea for this story? I’m not entirely sure to tell you the truth. I think when I decided I wanted to write something this story just popped into my head because it was one I wanted to read myself. Overtime it took shape and changed drastically but the idea itself more of less popped in out of nowhere.
Where do you find your inspiration?  I find my inspiration at the Library. There is something entirely exciting about walking through a room filled with books and looking at all of their covers that just inspires you to write more.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? Finding the time to write is difficult. Between my day job, my blog, my home life and beautiful daughter, it all adds up. Time is something I defini…

Book Review- City of Stairs

My Book Review Rating for City of Stairs- 3.5 Stars

For the city of Bulikov, it was once a power to be reckoned with. It had divine protectors that gave them the power to conquest others, enslave and brutalize their enemies and from that mighty rise came a hard fall when the Bulikov protectors were killed. Now the history around this city is censored, even erased as its citizens are oppressed. But just by looking around you can see the legacy of the guardian’s miracles all around the city. But the time is coming when Bulikov’s guardians are going to rise again and this time, Bulikov’s cruel reign will not yet be over.
I got to admit this is the first book by this author I have read and holy moly, what a ride he takes us on. The world building is spectacular, the characters are very well defined and multi-dimensional and the story just flows like a river, full of twists and turns along si…

Welcome to the Month Long Virtual Book Tour  for Disenchanted, the recently released YA  Fantasy novel by Leigh Goff.

About Disenchanted:
A dark curse, a forbidden love, an impossible choice.
Orphaned sixteen-year-old Sophie Goodchild is an outcast among the ordinaries and her coven, but not because she’s untalented. Descended from a powerful Wethersfield witch, her spellcasting gift is awkwardly emerging, but that’s the least of her worries. The boy she’s forbidden to fall for, a descendant of the man who condemned her ancestor to hang, carries a dark secret that could destroy them both unless Sophie learns how to tap into the mysterious power of her diamond bloodcharm. 
Suspenseful, dark, romantic, and brimming with old magic, Disenchanted captures the intrigue of New England’s witchlore.

At the center of the Starling (Book One in the Love in Los Angeles series) are Alex and Paul, who get together in the course of the book. They’re back in the sequel, Doves, as they deal with the challenges fame, success, and growing up bring to a relationship.

Another central character in the LiLA story is Liam. He’s Alex’s co-star on the hit TV show The Fourth Estate. As of the end of Starling, he’s engaged to Carly, a completely awesome chick who also happens to be Paul’s ex-girlfriend.

Liam is also -- as of the beginning of Doves -- Alex’s ex-lover.
We were surprised when, in the reader response to Starling, we heard from a lot of people who said they really enjoyed the Alex/Paul/Liam love triangle. We absolutely adore the Alex/Liam relationship in all its forms, and to be entirely fair, Paul has some real issues about Alex and Liam’s history. But we hadn’t really ever thought of that relationship as part of a love triangle. After all, Alex ends Starling really solidly with Paul.
