Awakened by Sennah Tate: Interview + Giveaway

Soul Shifters, #1
by Sennah Tate

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Red Lily Publishing
Number of pages: 201
Cover Artist: Sennah Tate

It can never, never happen. Not with him.

Good girl schoolteacher Gemma has always played it safe, colored inside the lines. Her only indulgence is a recurrent fantasy about Carson, her town’s ultimate bad boy. Carson is fifty shades of wrong for Gemma, but damn if the risk-taking ex-con doesn’t inspire dark, waking-at-night-clenching-the-sheets thoughts in Gemma’s orderly little mind...

Don’t touch. Don’t look. Don’t even think about him. No matter how good he might be in your dreams, he’s bad.

All Gemma’s promises fly out the window when her best friend goes missing. Carson is the only one who can help Gemma uncover the truth, and if some sparks fly along the way… so what? It doesn’t mean anything.


As tensions rise, Carson and Gemma are both stripped down, revealing steamy paranormal secrets and an unbridled hunger that simply refuses to be tamed.

Q & A with  Sennah Tate
1. Tell us a little bit about your main characters.

In book one of the Soul Shifters series, the main couple is Gemma and Carson. Gemma is a middle school electives teacher that loses her job to budget cuts. Carson is the guy from the wrong side of the tracks that trying to turn his life around even though the people in his town won’t let him forget his past. Gemma’s got a big heart and she’s willing to overlook a lot of Carson’s dumb choices because she knows he’s got the right intentions.

2. Describe your ideal writing spot.
Something quiet, private and surrounded by nature. A treehouse way up in the canopy with some kind of moving water nearby. A screened-in roof-top deck for star-gazing without bugs. I mentally retreat into my own world when I’m writing; I’d like to physically retreat, as well.

3. Who designed the covers for your book and what was that process like for you as the author?
I design most of my own covers and the Soul Shifters series was no different. The process was a bit daunting and these covers went through quite a few iterations with lots of feedback from other authors before I settled on something. I’m quite happy with the final result, though.

4. What is the best advice you have been given?

This question has been appearing a lot in my life lately and I keep struggling to come up with an answer. The best approximation I can come up with is a quote shared with me by an influential professor.

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
-- Robert Frost

I try to remind myself of this whenever times get tough. Something may seem like the end of the world, but life goes on. Persistence pays off, so I guess the takeaway is ‘never give up’? That’s pretty cliché; sorry for that.

5. How do you keep busy when you're not writing?
I like to paint. I spend a lot of time with my family and my fluffy retriever-mix, Bella. My SO and I enjoy long drives through the country with good music and great company (if I do say so myself!).

6. If you could have any superhuman ability, what would you choose and why?
I’ve always thought it would be really neat to be able to speak any language I encounter. Whether it be Mandarin, Elephant or Neptunian. I love to talk and I love making new friends -- it’s a no-brainer for me!

7. Which do you prefer: hard/paperbacks or ebooks?
While there’s nothing quite as satisfactory as cracking the spine on a brand new book or thumbing through crisp pages or taking a deep whiff of that musty old library smell, even I have to bow down to the portability and versatility of ebooks. They’ve totally changed the game, but I think both can coexist peacefully.
