Interview With Xavier Axelson (Lily, Paranormal Romance)





In your own words, please describe your book.
Frightening, emotional, eerie.


What genre/genres does your book fall under?
Horror/Paranormal/MM Romance

Is this book part of a series?
No, but once I revisited the characters, their voices told me there is more to tell. I could definitely write a sequel.

What was the inspiration behind your book?
A local news story about a little girl being dragged off her swing set by a coyote.

What led you into writing? Was it a lifelong ambition, or the result of some type of turning point in your life?
Being an avid reader led me to writing, it is a lifelong pursuit and I can only hope to live up to my dreams.

So far, what has been the greatest moment in your writing career?
Getting published, being brave enough to send my words out into the world.

Are you self-published or published through a small-press? Can you tell our readers what led up to that and your publishing experience?
Small press and I couldn’t have asked for a kinder, more inspiring publisher. Ken Harrison of Seventh Window Publications has never given up on his belief in my writing; I owe him big time for that.

What are you working on now?
Interviews, guest blogs and promoting Lily, my focus over the last two years has been editing the first book in a dark fantasy/horror series. The first book will come out this year. I’ve also contributed to several great anthologies which will also be coming out in 2014.

In your own words, please tell us about yourself.
Hopeful, sleepy, hungry, insatiable, curious, ambitious
What are some of your likes and dislikes?
Likes: Honesty, straight forwardness, bravery, pizza, dumplings, eggs benedict, pie and good storytelling, botany, cats, animals, the occult, demonology
Dislikes: Passive aggressive people, disloyalty, soggy crust, raw tomatoes, snobbery, false reasoning, the abuse of children and animals, the state of medical insurance in the U.S, long hold times, waiting in line

How can readers connect with you?





Tell us one thing about yourself that we wouldn’t know?
I am much nicer than I look.

If there was one thing you could tell your readers, what would it be?
To do just that; READ and be curious, read outside your genre and be willing to expand preconceived notions within a genre.
