#Interview Part 4 with @JennaMorland and @crossroadreview @ya_bookaddicts

About the Book:

"A fast-paced, mystical adventure mixed with heartbreak and hope that will keep you turning the page well into the night." Brenda Drake, New York Times bestselling author

What if a magical touch meant leaving everything you loved behind?

I was supposed to die. The doctors told me I had only two months to live.
That was before I met him. Daylan.
He was the miracle cure I had been waiting for. With Daylan, I was no longer the small-town girl with that unexplained illness. I was something more. The fate of a magical world depended on my survival, and I longed to go with him. There was only one thing stopping me.

About the Author: Jenna Morland is the author of Empress Unveiled published by Oftomes Publishing, set to release September 3, 2018. Jenna is a Canadian born author, song writer, and mother of two that lives under the Northern Lights. Slytherin to the core, Jenna’s ambition to write her debut novel happened somewhere between training for a triathlon and putting her kids to bed. But it was her determination to follow through that landed her a publishing deal. Growing up, her wild imagination thrived off of reading and her most desired hobby was to let a book completely consume her. Unlike most writers, Jenna never wrote in a diary. She dreaded English class and she never dreamt that one day she would write a novel. Until she did

Crossroad Reviews: We are finally at the end of our journey!  I hope everyone has enjoyed this four part series of questions with new debut author Jenna Morland. So lets start on the questions! Is there a book you know you will never read? Or one you tried to read but just couldn't finish?

I will not read any Stephen King. I am such a wuss! Anything suspense or horror terrifies me.

Crossroad Reviews: Are there any New Authors you are interested in for us to watch out for? and Why should we watch out for them?

I am so excited to read Keeper by Kim Chance and you should definitely check her out!

Crossroad Reviews: What piece of advice would you give to a new writer?

Never give up. Always be your biggest cheerleader. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there!

Crossroad Reviews: Do you reread books? 

Absolutely! I think I read Twilight like 6 times... ha.

Crossroad Reviews: What books are you looking forward to being released next year?

Am I aloud to say mine? Haha! I have been working so hard on this sequel and I can't wait for everyone to read it. We are hoping for a fall 2019 release!

Crossroad Reviews: What’s the most unusual book you own or have read?

I have some pretty strange children's books in this house. One of them I love and recommend to everyone is The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt.

Crossroad Reviews:  What fun facts have you learned from reading as well as from researching your own book?  This also brings us to how much research did you have to do for your own title? 

Oh man... I have googled some pretty weird things including "what it feels like to die". "What does kidney failure feel like". I could go on and on! As for the title of the book, it took a lot of brainstorming with the publisher but I knew Empress should be in the title. There are many meanings for it in the book that are pivotal to the story.

Crossroad Reviews: What does your ideal bookstore look like?

Not only do I love books, but I love all the bookish goodies that are in bookstores. Need a Christmas present idea? Go to a bookstore! Reading socks, journals, candles, calendars, adorable stuffies for children and one of my favorites--big fuzzy blankets! 

Crossroad Reviews: Have you ever dressed up as a fictional character?

As I stated in a previous question I love to party plan. Often those parties are theme, so yes!! 

Crossroad Reviews: What types of characters would you like to see more of in books?

I love the real characters. The ones that screw up. The far from perfect ones. I think that's why I love writing Tyler's character so much.
