Interview: UF author Aspen Black (Ghost Revelations Series) + giveaway

Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?
--How I became an author? That question always makes me laugh a little. I think anyone who picks up a pen (or types out on the computer) a story can be called an author. I was in fourth grade when I really developed a love of writing. I remember an essay where we had to write about what we wanted to do when we go to college. I wrote I was going to go to Harvard and become a writer! Of course, that didn’t happen. When I graduated high school, because my family needed me, I went straight to the work force and stopped writing for years. I went to community school in my mid-twenties, got a degree, a little bit of a better paying job, but it wasn’t until this past year that I picked up writing again.

I kept telling myself that I’d find time to write when I wasn’t so busy, or I had a better job. News flash to myself: It wasn’t going to happen unless I made it happen. So, I picked up that pen and got to writing. Ghost Revelations took about five months overall to finish. It was an idea I had for years that brewed in my head. Now, when I made it into a reverse harem novel? That idea came as I was writing it. I always got so mad at a heroine who was in love with different guys but ultimately had to choose one. How was that fair to her or the guys? It wasn’t!

I think I got off topic…I digress. I love writing, it’s my passion. Writing again, after so many years, has really helped me become happy again. It’s helped fight off my depression (which has been really bad), so much better than all the medications I’ve had to take for it.

What are some of your pet peeves?
--Pet peeves. I really only have a few. The biggest one is cracking knuckles. I CAN’T stand that noise. It literally makes me cringe. Another pet peeve is when someone says they’ll have something done at a certain time or date, and they wait until the very last moment to do it.

What do you do to unwind and relax?
--This might sound weird, but, I write or read. I can write for hours but only get a few things down and still be relaxed as if I had been reading that whole time. I don’t watch cable; I have Netflix on while I work.

Oh! It’s rare nowadays, but I also love to create little creatures with polymer clay or burn wood designs.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!
--Awkward introvert, kooky, and awkward.

What is something unique/quirky about you?
---I know that I have a quirk about collecting all things Panda that I can. I also have this weird habit that when I have an ‘all day writing’ day, I have to have lemonade or I can’t start.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
--- Ok, it’s time to be honest here. My spirit animal has, and always will be, a panda. I am OBSESSED with collecting pandas. I have a half sleeve of panda tattoos on my left arm. They are fuzzy, soft, cuddle, chubby, extreme klutzes. Just like me!

Ghost Revelations (Ghost Dud Book 1) by Aspen Black
October 25, 2019
Genre: Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy Romance
I was always told growing up in my family, surrounded by magic, that I was a dud. I had no power except the ability to talk to ghosts. It never bothered me because I enjoyed my job as a bartender at my Uncle's bar that caters to the supernatural community. I spend my nights working and getting to flirt with my crush.

Then one night, my life turned upside down. Someone was murdered right around the corner and suddenly a hot wizard detective with a perfect bubble butt from MEPA, The Magical Entity Protection Agency, swooped in and asked for my help with the victims' ghosts. Working with the detective soon leads to a race to stop a killer who is bent on exposing the supernatural community to humans with more deaths.

Join Victoria on her journey as she works to stop an evil being with the help from her crush Akira the werewolf, Lucian the wizard, and her ex-boyfriend Shax.

This is a reverse harem medium to fast burn book or a why choose novel.
F/M/M/M. This does include M/M heavy elements.
