Scribal Love Welcomes Donica Covey!
Thanks so much for having me here today! I’m very excited to be spending time with you and your readers. It’s always nice to visit other author’s homes. It’s a very lovely place you have here!
Thank You! We try to be homey here at Scribal Love.
I guess I better start the introductions? My name is Donica Covey and I write romantic suspense, paranormal romantic suspense, paranormal romantic comedy, fantasy romance and paranormal historical romance. I’ve been published for the last 6 years. It has always been my dream to be a published author and now that dream is realized I can say it was worth every single moment of the uncertainty, gut clenching anxiety and out of my head euphoria.
When you first started writing, did you write purely for pleasure or with the goal of publication?
Both actually. While I always knew from the time I was in third grade I’d one day be an award winning, bestselling author, I write for my own purpose—much like I breathe. I write because if I didn’t the voices in my head would probably have me locked up by now! (LOL)
How do you maintain your creativity?
It’s not always easy. Life is such an inconsistent curve ball throwing vexation that concentration on work is hard sometimes. I have to just flip on the tunes and try to tune out everything else. Thankfully I’ve got a wonderful CP who is great at kicking my can when I get too distracted—Thanks Becka!
Do you believe a writer is born with talent or can learn to write a great novel regardless of inborn talent?
You must have talent. I mean you can certainly learn the basics but if you are going to write there has to be some talent there to begin with. I’d love to be an artist and I could spend a fortune taking classes but without the ability to do more than draw stick figures, it’s a waste of time.
Tell us a smidgen about your latest novel and where we can buy it.
My next release is Hunting Mickey, coming in October from Champagne Books. Hunting Mickey is the third book in my Gateway Guardians series and focuses on DEA agent Mickey Flannery and his wife Terese. Here is the blurb and cover for this novel:
When all hell breaks loose, you know the honeymoons over--sometimes life’s a bitch…
Agent Mickey Flannery is finally going to take his wife Terese on the honeymoon they missed five years ago. The plans are made, the plane is landed and they arrive to the news they’ve been chosen for an upgraded holiday—a week on a private island all amenities included.
The private beach soon turns into paradise lost when they learn their gracious host is none other than Rafael Lesandro Rivera, Ramiro’s son, and he’s out for blood.
Can Mickey keep Terese and himself alive long enough to find a way of escaping the man who them join his hunting party—as the prey?
Please tell us what you have planned next?
Death Rides a Pale Harley is the first book in a four book series called The Four Horsemen. Currently I’m working on the next book Conquest Triumphs on a White Harley.
