Interview + Giveaway: Revelation (Pagan Eyes #2) by Rayna Noire

Revelation (Pagan Eyes #2)
by Rayna Noire

Genre: Paranormal YA

Nora’s impending college graduation is a triumph over the dark incident in her past that changed her life and stopped her best friend’s. Balancing school, work and her demented admirer at the diner is tough. All she has is six more months, but it similar to walking a tightrope blindfolded.

Life-like dreams pull her into the 19th century world of Clayton. A man who declares he’s her soul mate. Even though, she’s decided against romance, the young witch finds herself drawn to the Irish healer, even hearing his voice in her head.

This would make most people question their sanity. Nora needs to find out if Clayton is real and if she’s crossing over into another world in her sleep. If she is, will she end up stuck in the past? Can magick bring them together?

Shut Up & Read welcomes Rayna Noire today!  Thank you for joining us!

Q:  Tell us about yourself.
I am a Midwesterner locked in state that experiences tornadoes, floods and blizzards. As long as the water isn’t ankle high, I write. Nature is my go to friend. Walks refresh me. It seems fitting that I do my part, by planting trees, flowers, and feeding the birds.

Q:  Have you had other careers before becoming a writer?  
 I’ve done pretty much everything from writing PR ads to short order cook. Even though I‘ve trained for other jobs, I always felt writing was what I needed to do. Currently, I still have a day job.

Q:  How did you get started writing?
As the last child in the family, my mother was too busy to answer my numerous questions. Instead, she taught me to read and write when I was four. I devoured every book I could get my hands on. I was very disappointed in first grade reader. I read it the first day and told all the non-readers how it ended. This did not make me popular with my teacher. I felt obligated to write several alternatives for Dick and Jane. A few had hot air balloons, sky diving bad guys, and Lassie.

Q:  Tell us about your current series/WIP.
Currently, I am writing the Pagan Eyes series. It features the Carpenter family, who are also Wiccan. They keep getting lost in time, but deal with real issues such as suicide, bullying, rape, and divorce. Issues your average teen or young adult encounters.

Q:  What is your next project and when will it be released?
Declaration is the next book. It should be out in July. Keep your ears open, because there will be free days for Declaration.

As for series, my next one is Druidic in nature. I am totally convinced a trip to England is in order to visit Stonehenge.

Q:  Where do you get the ideas for your stories?
Often names will catch my eye. I was walking down the school hallway and saw a child’s work displayed with the name Maia at the bottom. Maia, Martel’s sister in Declaration, started to form in my head.

Rayna Noire is an author and a historian. The desire to uncover the truth behind the original fear of witches led her to the surprising discovery that people believed in magick in some form up to 150 years ago. A world that believed the impossible could happen and often did must have been amazing. With this in mind, Ms. Noire taps into this dimension, shapes it into stories about a Pagan family who really isn’t that different from most people. They do go on the occasional time travel adventures and magick happens.
