Blog Highlight: Fae Books Blogger

Another from across the pond! Welcome Sarah!  She blogs about all things indie, interviews, giveaways, reviews and all sorts of other fun things! 🙂


A wee bit about Sarah:

“I’m 24 years old, a Military Wife (Army) and living in North Yorkshire, England, UK with my husband and full time carer.
I spend my days in the bedroom mostly, due to my health, just too ill the majority of the time to do anything other than lie down, it’s awful, honestly, and I don’t go out because I’m Agoraphobic. I pass my time by reading, blogging and watching programs or movies on my phone (though I tend to read more often than watch things). I like to watch documentaries, about all sorts, and I love CSI & True Blood, I also watch Vampire Diaries. A huge part of my life are my dogs and cats, I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have their company, they offer a love regardless of what day it is, or how I’m feeling, it really is lovely and only pet lovers will understand this.
When I do leave the house, it’s only ever for a Doctor Appointment (when they can’t do something over the phone), or Hospital either for an appointment or via ambulance, and even having to attend any of those is a nightmare for me due to the Agoraphobia and Anxiety issues I have. I used to be in hospial every day via ambulance, so since getting on the right medication that helps, it’s improved and I manage to stay at home the majority of the time now.I sometimes venture downstairs, when I feel like I can, but I’m never down there for long before I need to be back upstairs to lie down, get pain relief or just get back into my safe haven which is my bedroom.”

Q & A with Paige Matthews

Next up this week we have Paige Matthews! Please give her a warm welcome! 🙂

pmWhat would your bio say?
Paige Matthews grew up in rural New England, and as a child dreamed of being a writer. Okay…not so much. I wanted to be a teacher, lawyer, writer, and journalist and after changing my degree four times, I settled on literature and then pursued a Master’s degree in Professional Writing. I now find myself a mother of two, a wife and a self-published author who still holds a full-time job completely out of the realm of my degrees 🙂 I enjoy writing, reading and spending time with my family and friends, watching hockey (avid fan) and enjoying life. When I am not spending time doing all of the things listed above, I am reviewing, promoting and networking with a great bunch of authors, bloggers and friends.

When did you start writing and why?
I guess I have always written throughout my life. It started out more as journal entries and then progressed into creative writing during my Master’s degree program. I have always had an appreciation for reading and the written word.

If you are a parent how does being a parent affect your writing and writing habits? Or does it?
I think it being a parent affects my writing. I would love to be able to lock myself away in a room and write all day, but being a full-time mom to a 4 year old and a 2 year old, I find myself writing primarily after they go to bed. Being a parent just requires us to shift our schedules to meet the demands of our families. I wouldn’t have it any other way

Who is your favorite author and why?
Favorite author…I am a student of literature, I can’t pick just one 🙂 I enjoy literary names such as Thomas Hardy, William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Ibsen, Shaw, The Brontes, Twain and contemporary writers such as Tiffany Reisz, Maya Banks, James Patterson. So to say my tastes are wide and varied-they are. As long as a story appeals to me, I usually enjoy

What do you hope to accomplish with your writing?
Honestly, I already have accomplished what I wanted to with my writing. I published a book. I made a dream come true. But in other words, I want to share my worlds with others and hopefully entertain and teach others along the way.

Traditional or Self publishing? Why?
I chose self-publishing. I like the creative control that I have over my own writing and my process. Both industries have their own pros and cons, and I enjoy creating and reading many self-published authors.

Talk about your journey into the wide world of publishing
It’s not that thrilling. I began writing my novel for NaNoWriMo and decided after seeing the success of other self-published authors that I could put out something that was worth reading, at least in my opinion. I wrote Devour Me within the month and then spent three months re-writing, editing and working with my beta readers to produce something that ended up being entirely different than the original. The journey has been eye opening to say the least. Negative ratings, e-book returns and the whole eighty different ways of formatting for each site…my documents folder looks like a zoo.

Tell us about your book (s)
Devour Me started as an idea that I had jotted down somewhere during my graduate degree and as said before was written during last year’s NaNoWriMo as a challenge to myself. The book focuses on a young PhD student and her “journey” away from an abusive boyfriend and into a world that she had left hidden deep within herself. The novel does focus on BDSM and a D/s relationship, as I try and educate my readers about the inner workings of the emotional aspects and desires within us. It is the first book in a three book (as of now) series focusing on different members of a club.

What inspired you to write these books (or in this genre)?
I wanted to explore the unspoken desires and curiosity that is within us all, even if we don’t want to believe it. The main stream culture has turned to the genre after FSoG, but the purpose of my novels is to show the emotional connections between the individuals with these relationships, and a few good smuttier scenes always help 

Tell us why we should love or hate your main character?
I think she overcomes her fears and throws caution to the wind in making herself happy. Whether you love or hate her, she overcomes her own issues and fears to accept what she wants and who she is. My beta readers were split on liking the male main character, although one beta reader actually loves a secondary character who I focus on in the second novel, Consume Me.

Do(es) your book(s) have a soundtrack?
Devour Me does have a small soundtrack and Consume Me is shaping up to be a pretty kick butt album.
