Indie Author Spotlight – Sharon Stevenson and “Blood Bound”

It’s time to highlight another deserving indie author, so today I’m happy to tell you about Sharon Stevenson and her novel “Blood Bound”.  This is the first book of her Gallows series (the second book, “Demon Divided” is also available).

Here’s a little about “Blood Bound”:

19-year-old twin demon trackers Shaun and Sarah Gallows are used to running into trouble – mostly the kind with fangs – but while Sarah embraces her powers to their fullest extent, trusting her instincts implicitly, Shaun distances himself from his abilities and can do little more than despair at his sister’s reckless nature and idly back her up.

When they come across 17-year-old Melissa Carling, a demon tracker who’s been torturing innocent super-naturals, they know they have to stop her. Sarah is desperate to punish Melissa for what she’s been doing but Shaun’s instant attraction to the girl points to a soul-mate bond stronger than anything he’s ever had to fight before…

You can find the book on Amazon for only $0.99 – you can’t ask for a better bargain than that!   Look for it at Amazon.com or Amazon.uk.

 

And Demon Divided is also available on Amazon for that same low price.

Sharon also answered a few questions – read on to find out more about her and the world she’s created…

When did you start writing the Gallows series? 
I started writing the first novel about a year before I published it, in August 2011.
Was there any specific inspiration for this series?
I had just started reading YA Supernatural books and I found I kept wishing they had more realistic characters in them.  The type of characters I wanted to write about sprang from there, the story coming from them.  They turned out as adult Modern Fantasy novels rather than YA.
Can you picture these books on film or TV?  Who would be your dream cast?
I find it difficult to picture this, I see the settings and characters very clearly in my head and that’s enough for me!  I did get asked the same question in a blog hop once and it was a stretch but I came up with actors closely resembling the two main characters.  I could see Karen Gillian from Doctor Who as Sarah
Karen Gillan
but the only actor I can think of who comes close to looking like Shaun is John Mallory Asher from my all time favourite TV show Weird Science.  He’s kind of too old now though, so I would need to invent a time machine!

Tell us something surprising about these books that isn’t covered in the back-cover description?
They are set in an alternate reality version of Scotland!
What are you working on now?
I’m editing a dark comedy book about re-animation titled ‘Raised’.  It should be ready to release in a few months.
If you could pick one big-name author to read and review Blood Bound, who would it be, and why?
Kim Harrison!  I love her books, I would totally respect her opinion and it would just be awesome to know that the creator of Rachel Morgan and The Hollows actually read my book!
