Guest Author Q&A with Tijan- Just my all time favorite romance writer!

2018 has started really well here at Glimpses Of My Books! 
Last month I had one of my all time favorite Young Adult writer gracing us with her presence (Morgan Rhodes), this month I have the author that has in a very short period of time became my ALL TIME favorite romance writer (seriously... I have read about 10 of her books and just bought another 4 this week)! To think I didn't know her this time last year... sacrilege! 
If you like sexy romance stories with depth and great characters give her books a go!
Check out this post for the review on her latest book, Ryan's Bed

Some of Tijan's books that I have come to Love

I am so very excited to do this Q&A with you!
Ever since I found your books (thanks to a bookstagram friend) I have been hooked. And your last book, Ryan’s Bed, was pure perfection!

THANK YOU!!!

When did you start writing? Was it a hobby at first or did you always wanted to be a writer?

This will make me sound crazy, but it really was because I was going to go nuts if I didn’t. I never considered myself a writer, but I had these characters and worlds and storylines in my head. They just kept coming, more and more. So, one day I was at my family’s cabin and I couldn’t take it anymore. I turned my dad’s old computer on, not even knowing if it would work, and then I started typing. As soon as I began, it clicked with me. I knew that I had to be a writer. I was as surprised as everyone else!

When you are not writing what genre do you enjoy reading? 

I enjoy young adult, paranormal romance, and lately I’ve started getting into psychological thrillers/suspense books. Very fun!

Of all the books you have written, do you have a favorite? Which one?

No favorite! I tend to love the one I’m writing, but I think that’s more because I have to enjoy it to write it, you know?

Your books are all very different from each other, mafia romance, high school romance, supernatural… where do you get your ideas/inspirations from?

Who knows. Lol! Could be just an idea, a feeling, a movie, a song. I wrote Cole because I had an idea driving through an intersection one day.

Your newest release, Ryan’s Bed, made me cry my heart out. It is a tad heavier than the other books from you that I have read. How along did take you to write it? How hard was it? And what was the inspiration for it?

I started writing it a year ago, then had to push pause for a bit. I started it again recently and it probably took me three months to finish! I don’t really know where the inspiration came, to be honest.

What other books do you have coming out this year that we should keep an eye on? I am ‘no-so-secretly’ dying for Carter 3, is it happening?

I’m not sure about Carter 3. The characters are just not talking to me. I have actually quite a few more young adult books chirping though. I’m hoping to get Heather Jax’s book out, and then we’ll see what projects I can finally share! I do have Bad Boy Brody coming May 7th too!

And for the fun of it… if you were to give Ryan’s Bed a sound track, what 2-3 songs would be on it?

Barbies by Pink, Broken People by Rag n Bone Man, Punching in a Dream- stripped by The Naked and Famous, Oh Brother by Cyrus Reynolds.

Thank you so so so much for being with me and my readers today! I am very much looking forward to reading your other books!

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
