An Interview with Raine Delight
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Thank you for talking with us at TRS BLUE. Your featured book is Haunting Magic and is part of your Devon Falls series. First, what can you tell us about this amazing series?
RD: Devon Falls is a small town, like my home town, where paranormal creatures and humans live, work and fall in love. I designed Devon Falls to be some place where everyone-regardless of sex, gender, etc-can find comfort in, to belong to a community and to fall in love. Originally to be a trio of stories, readers have clamored for more stories as they fall in love with the town and the characters who pop in there. Now it has morphed into 11 books.
HH: How do the first three books set it up?
RD: Well books one through three are stories about two main characters who were secondary characters in past books. I loved the idea of adding an element where one secondary character had sparks or said something in the storyline that had readers going "Are they the next main character(s)?" to me.
Also the first five books are holiday themed as well. Those stories centered on a specific holiday such as Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's day, etc. I have one more holiday themed story I am working on then the final five books will be centered on the town itself as new characters pop in and all the readers favorites find themselves in one last sub-plot.
HH: How does Haunting Magic continue it?
RD:Haunting Magic is my favorite so far in the series....it's centered on Halloween and I tried to show how Jaxon drives Rodrick to pieces even as they dance around their feelings. There was humor and romance, sex, passion and lots of growls, banter and fun. The reader is introduced to Rodrick in Fiery Magic (book 3) and we see the one woman who can tame this loner wolf and boy does she take him on a merry ride.
HH: What do you like best about Jaxon and why do you think readers will relate to her?
RD: Jaxon is one of my favorite heroine's to write. She is the woman I-and others I hope-long to be-strong, confidant, loyal and above all, loving. Jaxon was a pure delight to write and her scenes with her family, with Rodrick, show her to be that strong kick ass woman many of us aspire to be.
HH: What do you like best about Rod and why will readers love him?
RD: Rodrick Dracon *sighs* He gave me a fit some days when I wrote Haunting Magic. He was like every single man-on the prowl for his next conquest and he tried to ignore the one person who wasn't immune to his charms. Let's just say he was not happy with me when I made Jaxon take him on an adventure of a lifetime.
He is the man we all want to fall in love with-he is a sexy alpha male who finds his peace with the one person he is meant to be with and to me that shows his vulnerability and that is why I think, readers loved this one so much. *smiles* Haunting Magic was my top selling story in the series and I am always thrilled to hear readers say they love these two characters as much as I do.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
RD: *rubs hands together and laughs* I got a ton of ideas...my muse has been a busy boy. I have two new Devon Falls stories on the horizon....working on them now. One is Christmas themed and centers around Jaxon's cousin, Grady O'Neil, who readers met in Haunting Magic. We get to see who he really is and how he feels he doesn't belong anywhere. Finding out his fated mate is none other a Lord of the Fae Court has Grady in shock and intrigued....Yuletide Magic will hopefully be into my publisher soon....still working out the kinks for this one. Then the story that has begun in the first book, Sticky Magic, will finally come out. A Devon Falls Wedding is my swan song to the first couple in this series, Jenna and Marc and they find that having their wedding not become a circus is the least of t heir problems. Add in family misunderstandings, a new set of characters arrive to town and shocks the small town in ways that they never foreseen and more. This will be into my publisher by end of the year *fingers crossed* and out sometime in 2013. Plus the culmination of the series begins in late 2013-early 2014 with the Craven Siblings taking over....four siblings, elemental mages and a prophecy of their destined mates coming all make Devon Falls to be one exciting place in the next few years.
I also got word that the first five books will be in one print volume as well. No word on when that happens but readers can follow my blog or facebook page for more information when it becomes available.
HH: How long have you been a writer and what keeps you writing?
RD: I dabbled in writing for years but never thought to write until I read one too many books who had their main characters acting all stupid and annoying and a friend dared me to write my own. Seven years later, three publishers now gone in flames, I find myself enjoying the books I write, my publisher's support and the many writing friends I can sit and yell about crazy muses who disappear or fighting writer's blocks. The support is endless and always freely given as well as shared.
I love finding new readers who sit there and tell me they love my books and the regular readers who say they want to move to Devon Falls or they want to know if my heroes have brothers, cousins or whatnot available for them. *smiles* This is what keeps me going..that and lots of coffee and chocolate. :-)
HH: What goals have you set for yourself at this point in your career?
RD: To not burn out again. I had a lot of stress at end of 2009 with a former publisher and fighting for my rights back of all my books there, my money owed, etc-let's just say it was a really rough time and I was blocked as well in writing. Once I got my rights back, told myself to kiss my money owed to me goodbye and spent 2010 recharging my muse. He was a very unhappy camper and needed some major pampering. 2011 became my year to get back to work and I did. Now I am eager to see where my muse takes me and I hope to actually have three to four releases a year starting in 2013.
HH: What do you enjoy reading?
RD: Well right now its M/M (GAY) romance-from Andrew Grey to TJ Klune to Laura Baumbach. I love anything Manlove. Then I like to switch it up and read Nora Roberts/JD Robb, Debbie Macomber, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jessica Andersen and many others as well.
HH: What are you most looking forward to before the year's end?
RD: Actually I plan to send out three submissions by end of the year so that is what I am looking forward to even if it is nerve wracking. *laughs*
Then I plan to start the new year off with some new books.
Thanks for having me here and letting me share my series with you.
