The Next Big Thing

I was invited to participate by the fabulous 

Angela Rose@

What is the working title of your book?

                    Open House: Pool of Souls Book 1

Buy Links:

             Amazon ~ Smashwords ~ All Romance  ~ Kobo

Where did the idea come from for the book?

My fascination for ancient Greek and Roman history!

What genre does your book fall under?

Paranormal/Contemporary Romance

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Robert Corvin
Rebecca Carol
ARES - God of War

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Will divine intervention help or hinder Robert and Rebecca's second chance at love?

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?


How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Three weeks!

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Possibly PC Cast's Goddess of the Spring or Goddess of the Rose.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

I gravitate toward 'meant to be' and Aphrodite, so when the idea that Aphrodite was in charge of making sure souls that were 'meant to be' found each other, even if it took centuries... I was off and writing!

What else about you might pique the reader's interest?

Whether it's in a contemporary setting or in a book filled with goddesses, fae, shifters, and magic. Love and Destiny can be found everywhere in my writing.

So far, I've written and published the first book in my Pool of Souls Series - Open House. Open House is the first book in a paranormal series about the matchmaking goddess Aphrodite.  

I've also written a holiday contemporary that will be releasing from Decadent in time for Christmas 2012.

Two more series are in the works. This Christmas you will see Vegas Mates, but it's still in the "hush, hush" phase right now. Join my newsletter and you will be among the first to hear about it. Next summer The Elder Blood Trilogy will launch. I'm super excited about all these paranormal romances novels. I think they mix just enough reality with fantasy to make it really interesting. 

Why should you read my books?  Well, if you enjoy romance and the 'meant to be' you've come to the right place. If you don't like romance... I don't have much to offer you. Sorry! But, if you like fabulous love stories, alpha males, sexy werewolves, fae, dragons, magic and more! I've got that in spades.

Just a little about me.... Well, I was born, raised, and currently live in TEXAS. I am married to a wonderful man who supports my dream of writing and allows me to spend many evening and weekend hours glued to my laptop. During the day I moonlight as an elementary music teacher. In addition to a doting husband, a young daughter is also part of the picture and keeps us both hopping! An ornery little Welsh Corgi completes our household. 

Happy Reading,
Happy Writing,
Krystal Shannan
