Interview with Author Raine Delight

Welcome Raine! Tell us about your latest book.
Answer: Hi Kayelle, first thanks for having me here today. I have a few things in the pipeline right now coming in the next several months.
March 2011: From Shadowfire Press~Fantasies Unbound (Fae/Fantasy Romance) *this is a re-release and was formally titled Fairy Kisses and Magical Dreams*
Can destiny lead a Fae Prince to the one woman who can complete him mind, body and soul?
June 2011: From Secret Cravings Publishing~the fifth book in the Devon Falls series comes out, Moonlight and Magic (Were-tiger/Paranormal Erotic Romance).
Can a were-tiger convince one stubborn woman that she is his for all time and show her that falling in love is just as sinful as a chocolate kiss?
Plus I have a few previous released books out to a publisher that I am waiting to hear about. If you keep an eye on my facebook page, blog and website, I try to update weekly on those projects.
What is the genre, and does it cross over to other genres? If so, what are they?
Answer: I primarily write erotic romance, paranormal/fantasy but I am branching out into MM, science fiction/futuristic but always return to paranormal. There is something about that genre that calls to me.
What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
Answer: I fell in love with writing Michael Barnes from Moonlight and Magic. He was a lonely man who didn’t want to believe there was someone out there for him. Complex yet vulnerable….I loved writing it. Next I am embroiled in my two heroes from Space Pirates. Throw in Firefly, mix in a dash of Capt. Jack Sparrow from POTC series and stir well. That is what I am aiming for anyways. LOL
If money were not an object, where would you most like to live?
Answer: Oh man…skies the limit huh? Well any where with my honey and kids of course but some place warm and sunny would be nice…maybe Texas or Arizona or I would love to live in the wilds of Scotland. J Something about the moors there calls to me.
What genres and authors would we find you reading when taking a break from your own writing?
Answer: Paranormal, urban fantasy, fantasy, historical romance books. I jump all over depending on my mood in what I read.
What feature do you start with when writing a description of your hero/ine? Eyes, age, hair color, personality, name, etc?
Answer: Well sometimes I get a name and a description from the character in question; other times I find out when I am half way through the book. It all depends if I can “see” the character in my mind or not.
If I was a first time reader of your books, which one would you recommend I start with and why?
Answer: Well currently I am with a brand new publisher so many of my books are no longer available. If you like paranormal, then take a look at my Devon Falls series-shifters, dream walkers, sex mages and more in this little fictional town I created. J You don’t have to read it in order but some things that happen in past books, end up being mentioned in upcoming books.
What do you hope readers take with them after reading one of your stories?
Answer: That love and romance is universal and can transcend the barriors.
A biography has been written about you. What do you think the title would be (in six words or less)?
Answer: Oh man...making me think here.um……Lived a full life.
What song would best describe your life?
Answer: dang…no clue on this at all. Maybe a bon jovi song or something. J
If you were a tool, what would people use you to do?
Answer: *blinks* Does this mean I have to be PG or can I get in the gutter with this one? *laughs*
Picture yourself as a store. Considering your personality and lifestyle, what type of products would be sold there?
Answer: Maybe new age items or food…or candles..Um all three. J
If you came with a warning label, what would it say?
Answer: Open at your own risk!
What is the one question you wish an interviewer would ask you?
Answer: What it is like being a cougar in this day and age? :-P
