Get to know The Pin-Up Artist







The Pin-Up Artist Interview

 Authored by Elle Marlow 

 

Elle, what is the Pin-Up Artist and why is it having such a strong debut?

The Pin-Up Artist created itself.  Believe me, my normal genre is western or native romance.  I love humor and I’m a big fan of Evanovich but I never saw myself writing a romantic/comedy/suspense.  I loved how it turned out though and the reception has been amazing. 

Didn’t you have other ideas for publishing this story?

Um, yes I did.  It had been requested in full by Harlequin.  I adore Harlequin and their staff, but I have marketing in my blood and I wanted The Pin-Up Artist available to ride on Josey’s Mountain coat tails.

Did it?

That’s the funny thing.  No it didn’t.  It’s creating its own fan base because of the vast difference between them.

What’s the story about? 

It’s really cute.   Our heroine, Ginger Garrett is a twenty something year old waitress who just walks out of divorce court and into her life.  She is determined to stay single and hopefully, not screw up anymore. 

The Hero is a forty plus ready to settle down hot firecaptain.  The sparks between these two are RED HOT.   Her mother whom she refers to as “Ma”  is certifiably crazy and she is HILARIOUS.  She is always confusing her words and then will have moments of pure genius.  However she accidentally gets involved with a crime ring and our hero has to save her and the whole town.  Meanwhile he is falling in love with Ginger the waitress.  It’s a beautiful funny romance.  I just love it. 

I’d tell you more, but I can’t.  It must be experienced.  LOL

Gratitude

I'm quickly approaching my one year anniversary where I decided to show the world my writing.  With the encouragement of friends and especially F.J. Thomas,  I entered into a world wide competition a story I wrote in just six weeks. 
 Since then, it feels like I'm on a rocket ship.  I just wanted to take a moment, to thank Solstice publishing, Harlequin publishing and all the fellow authors/readers for always being supportive and honest as I try and grow my craft. 

Thank you. xoxo

Welcome Crystal Vaughan to the Elite Blog!   Thank you for stopping by and telling us about your newest release,
Conspiracy Of Ravens


Ashland, Oregon – Chrystal Vaughan, author of paranormal horror novels Sideshow and Dead in the Water, has been contracted with Solstice Publishing for her latest work, Conspiracy of Ravens.  The latest in a series of pulse-pounding tales, Vaughan says its two predecessors are written in such a way that they can stand as individual stories, but still feed into each other, creating a fluid, overarching theme.  Yet this particular work stands apart in a very important way.

“This new book,” Vaughan states, “has an occult/paranormal theme, a serial killer, romance, and death...lots of death.

Set in Philadelphia, Conspiracy of Ravens focuses on the mysterious and opportunistic Catherine Meara, a.k.a. the “Raven Witch Killer,” and Philly Herald reporter Sophia Pascale, who has been assigned to interview the convicted murderer at the Philadelphia State Penitentary.  As the interview progresses, Pascale learns that not only is Meara other than what she appears, but the visit also throws a curveball in the form of the attractive Officer Shaw, who beguiles the young journalist.  The question for Pascale becomes not just whether the interview will make her career, but also if she can deal with the horrors unfolding around her without becoming yet another victim.

Vaughan admits this book is extremely different from the first two, as the first novel was more for a fear-based work, and the second ventured into the world of Young Adult Horror.  Conspiracy of Ravens, Vaughan says, required a different approach due to Meara being a female serial killer.  When asked about the inspiration for the novel, she revealed some interesting reasons for her choice of plot.

“I was inspired by a conversation with my daughter about the names for groups of animals,” Vaughan says.  “I've got a thing about ravens, too. I've also always been interested in the occult--Tarot cards and the like-- and serial killers interest me in terms of their psychology.”

Conspiracy of Ravens is set to release upon an unsuspecting world on August 1st, 2014. Purchasers eager to exchange their nights of easy rest can download or buy print copies from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and Solstice Publishing.
