Elissa Blue by T.K Perry – Author Interview & Book Giveaway

 

Elissa Blue by T.K Perry

Though she worried it might never happen, Elissa Blue has finally gotten her wings. Now she has a short window of time to migrate to the Mating Mountain, find a husband, and get back down the impassable cliffs before she loses her ability to fly forever. If she doesn’t succeed, she’ll be stranded as a servant in the Old Castle for the rest of her life. And if she doesn’t choose her man wisely, she might be just as miserable.

Author Interview

1. Whom or what inspired you to become an author?                                                              I wrote my first book in 3rd grade: The Nosy Kid. I meant to title it The Noisy Kid, but I couldn’t spell, and when my teacher, Mrs. Mensen, read it out loud to the class, I just went with it. My classmates laughed and my teacher was encouraging, so I just kept writing.

2. What does your writing process look like?
Once I get an idea, I just start writing chapter one, and research as I go. Most of my books only get a handful of chapters before I abandon them. Elissa Blue is one of only five books that I’ve finished.

3. What is your current WIP?  What can you share with us about it?
I am in the editing stage with Lexi Monarch: Book Two of The Winged, and hope to publish it in December (but maybe January!). I am currently writing book three of The Winged series.

4. What did you want to be when you grew up? Did becoming an author ever cross your mind?
I actually wanted to be a fighter pilot. 🙂 I did plan to publish a book at some point, but I never thought of it as a career, and I still don’t (just a fun hobby).

5. What inspired the idea for Elissa Blue?
I was reading Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart where she described some of the fairies as having butterfly wings and others dragonfly wings. I had just started studying entomology (as a hobby) and I thought how interesting it would be if fairies were subject to some of the oddities of bug biology like pupa states, pheromones, and short mating periods. I just couldn’t resist writing it.

6. What do you want readers to take away from reading Elissa Blue?
I’m hoping they’ll learn from my romantic mistakes. Dating is a minefield, and choosing a husband requires you to navigate it.

7. When you are not writing, what hobbies do you enjoy?
I’m a nature nerd, so I’m always watching and photographing wildlife. I also enjoy making jewelry, reading (of course), and cooking.

 

Author T.K. Perry
T.K. Perry lives with her husband and daughter in a lovely Oregon forest filled with wildlife (there is probably a house, too, but that’s less picturesque). When she isn’t writing or watching said wildlife, she enjoys making jewelry, pretending to be a photographer, and trying to save the world (a frustrating task since she lacks both superpowers and a costume).

T.K. has a B.A. in International Relations from Brigham Young University, an M.A. in International Politics from the University of Denver Graduate School of International Studies, and a J.D. from the University of Denver College of Law. Law is her profession, but writing is a favorite hobby. This is her first published book.
