Gargoyles guard things. That's a fact of life. Knuckles, head doorman of Moonlight & Magic, leads a simple life. People cause trouble, he talks to them. People continue to cause trouble and he proves how squishable most races are compared to a creature hewn out of stone. Knuckles doesn't do gentle.
That is, until he rescues Neri, a fragile human woman, quite literally from a fate worse than death. Can a gargoyle fall in love? Can a human woman make the leap of faith required to accept him for what he is?
Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you here today and to find out what your author offerings are. What is your latest offering?
My lates release is Sunlight & Slavery, part of the Moonlight & Magic series released through Changeling Press.
What is Sunlight & Slavery all about?
The story is about Knuckles, head doorman at Moonlight & Magic. A gargoyle guarding things and protecting humanity is what he does, it’s what he is. Because of his looks he’s always been on the outside looking in, until he rescues Neri. The soon to be both ex and deceased girlfriend of a small time crook, Carrick. Neri is scared to death of the situation she finds herself in and extremely grateful to her inhuman rescuer. A gratitude which turns quickly into fascination and we all know what they say about curiosity...especially when Knuckles ‘wakes’ the next evening to find Neri’s been kidnapped.
That sounds like a great read. How did you come up with the idea?
It was very much a ‘what if’ game to be honest. Knuckles appeared as a secondary character in Moonlight & Magic, pretty much as the next story’s hero, Tiny, appears in Sunlight & Slavery. The idea of a strong silent type hero with a noble soul really appealed to me so Knuckles character was born.
Is this your first author offering, or do you have other books the readers should know about?
Sunlight is actually my eighth release, and the second in the Moonlight & Magic series. The third in the series, Deception & Desire, is already contracted and in the process of being written. Other than that series, I also have the Kyn series then three non-series books, two paranormal romance and one contemporary romance. If you’re interested in checking them out they can be found on the books page on my site http://mina-carter.com/?page_id=3
What can we expect from you in the future, Mina?
Well, in the immediate future I have another contemporary romance, Playing with Fyre, releasing through Lyrical Press on the 6th July and Deception and Desire coming soon to Changeling. I’m also pleased to have acquired (read bullied a good friend into it ;) ) another writing partner and we’re working on a were-dragon series at the moment.
Thank you for joining me. Is there anything else you'd like the readers to know?
You’re very welcome, thank you for having me! And all I’ll say is – watch this space, there are plans afoot! ;)
