Beautifully Broken Blog Tour: Interview/Giveaway with Sherry Soule

Fellow Book Bloggers for the first time on my blog I'd like to present to you a Blog Tour post of Beautifully Broken by Sherry Soule with an Interview and the blogs first giveaway! 

Lets welcome Sherry Soule everyone and her awesome Debut Novel!

1. What inspired you to write BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN?

I’ve always had a morbid fascination with haunted houses and ghosts. I love all things supernatural, and I knew the market was flooded with vampires, fairies, angels, shapeshifters, and werewolves, so I decided to make my heroine a sassy witch. Because witches need love too!
The story ARC took a different twist once I decided to add magick to the plot. And it was super fun. The story came alive and I found my “voice.” As a result of adding a witchy theme, I wanted my main characters to live in a spooky town, which gave birth to the idea of the setting: Whispering Pines, California near Muir Woods. A foggy, cursed town full of secrets. The perfect place to set my story. I also have a blog devoted to its haunted history.
2. How long did it take you to write BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN?

About a year and 50 drafts!

3. What particular place do you write in? Coffee Shop? Home?

Home. My workspace is surrounded by books and art. I write in a built-on family. Since it the extra room was built without a foundation, I get a lot of creepy-crawlers. Not to mention, there is a forest area behind my house. So far, I’ve had a bat, wolf spider (this spiders are HUGE), salamander, lizard, slugs, black widow spider, and a centipede. These creatures tend to entertain my cat, but totally freak me out. LOL

3. You run into a bookstore, where do you go first?

First Young adult, then the Paranormal Romance section.

4. Paperback or Hardback? Why?

Paperback. Easier to hold.

5. In all the books you've read. Who is your most favorite character and why?

I still have a fondness for the narrator in Flowers in the Attic Cathy Dollanganger by the late author, V. C. Andrews.

6. What is your weakness? Books, Food, etc.

Books and shoes. There is rumor that I am seriously addicted to buying shoes and books …well, the latter might be true. But hey, a girl can never have too many shoes to wear or books to read!

6. State 5 random facts about yourself.

Goofy. Perfectionist. Introverted. Dorklicious. Considerate.

7. What are you currently reading?

Other by Karen Kincy.

8. While writing how many times do you go back and rewrite a plot?

Not much, but I sweat over dialogue more than anything else.

9. Your favorite Genre?

YA – Paranormal Romance

10. How many books in a month do you tend to read?

2 to 3 books

11. Do you prefer reading Adult or Young Adult paranormal books?

Doesn’t matter—I love both!

12. Here’s your chance to market your book. Describe BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN and why readers should pick it up?

There are enough vamp, angel, werewolf, fae, and shapeshifter young adult novels saturating the market. I think it’s time, in my humble opinion for more witchy stories.

(When I saw the announcement for the CW’s new TV series inspired by author L. J. smith, “The Secret Circle,” I knew I was on the right path.)
About this YA series:

Quirky, Shiloh Ravenwolf is a sixteen-year-old heritage witch. She lives in the gloomy town of Whispering Pines, where teenagers have mystically disappeared for over ten years. When construction on Ravenhurst Manor unleashes a sinister evil, the body count rises. And Shiloh's would-be boyfriend is next on the supernatural hit list. Shiloh decides it's her duty and Destiny (Yes, with a capital "D") to find out what is causing the unexplained phenomena.
