#SpotlightAuthorInterview with Juli D. Revezzo

Juli D. Revezzo is a Florida girl, with a love of fantasy, science fiction, and Arthurian legend, and loves writing stories with all kinds of fantastical elements. Aside from Changeling's Crown, she is the author of the Antique Magic series and the Paranormal Romance Harshad Wars series and many short stories. She is also a member of the Independent Author Network and the Magic Appreciation Tour.

What genre(s) do you write? I write just about everything, just like in my reading habits, but I’ve been published in Paranormal, fantasy, and paranormal romance.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
The message in Changeling’s Crown is “Be yourself, whatever that may be. Don’t fight it, and be comfortable with being yourself. It’s okay to be different than what might be your clique’s “normal”. J

How do your family and/or friends feel about your book or writing venture in general? They support it and are proud to see the work finally out there.

How do you come up with the titles?
That is a good question. How? I wonder that constantly. ;) No, usually, I’ll start with a theme in the story, or something that seems like it fits. Or, like in the case of Changeling’s Crown, something that hints at the story. Then I’ll bounce it off a few friends (writers and readers) and see which they like best.

Has your life changed significantly since becoming a published writer?

Not really; I just fret about something different than I used to. ;)

Please tell us 5 miscellaneous facts about yourself.

I like to piddle around with photograph;
I attend drum circles from time to time
I have been known to try to draw (not well, at all!)
I still miss the Gilmore Girls
I only just flew for the first time, last month.

Please share with us your future projects and upcoming releases.

My current work, Changeling’s Crown is about a faery godmother who can’t do anything right.
Also, I’m working on the follow up to my dark historical fantasy, House of Cards. This one is entitled Lady of the Tarot, and I hope to have that out sometime before the end of the year—or early next year. I’m also writing my first Gothic romance. (To answer your earlier question, obviously, I’m a multi-tasking writer. ;))

When Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again. After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.

But why?

 Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.

Briak has had his eye on Ianthe for a very, very long time, but he’s been waiting for just the right moment to make his move. Despite the fact all hell’s about to break loose on his watch, he can’t resist the opportunity to insert himself into her earthly assignment. Can he convince Ianthe of her true calling and thereby win her heart? Or will his subterfuge ultimately cost him her love?

Voices and laughter came from across the ranch, and Briak paused on the front porch to watch the activity. Children were setting out from the stables on the first leg of their trail ride but this wasn’t where his attention turned. Nearby, a young woman leaned into a white Toyota and came out with her purse. Her gingham shirt pulled tight across her slender torso, the top buttons undone, showing a hint of a lacy white bra. A smart tan cowboy hat sat atop the plethora of dark curls.
Ianthe. Well, well. Just the faery he wanted. He had to get a closer look.
He tipped his hat back as he spoke, “What can I do for you, miss?”
She approached, pulling a business card from her purse. “I called the other day,” she said, offering the card to him, “about a party for Clover Glen Elementary.”
“Of course,” he said. Though the way she looked him over proved she couldn’t place him, he gave a perfunctory glance at the card, tucked it into his shirt pocket, and waved his hand to the office. “Why don’t you come on in and we’ll discuss it, Miss—”
“Hypericum.” She offered her hand. “Ianthe Hypericum.”
Yes, I know who you are. He couldn’t stop staring at her, imagining skimming his fingers along her velvety cheek, as he’d done in so many dreams.
He pushed his libido down and turned instead to stare into her blue eyes, unable to decide whether they resembled a cloudy sky or the angry seas. “Come right this way, Miss Hypericum.”
She smiled and his world tilted.
Tires crunched over the gravel drive.
“Briak!” A woman’s voice cut through the din of giggling, hyper children.
The silver pickup came to a halt, its brakes squeaking. Briak shut his eyes. Why now?
The brunette slid out of the cab. “Where’s Randy?”
“Good.” Mallory stamped up the steps like a warrior in a battle frenzy.
Briak cleared his throat. “Don’t mind her,” he said. “She’s always got PMS.”
Ianthe blushed and laughed. “That’s horrible.”
Her laugh drove a thrill through him; what he wouldn’t give to hear her excited by something... “It’s the truth.” He turned back to the pretty Ianthe Hypericum and smiled. He nodded to the office doors. “Come on in. I’ll take care of everything for you.”
