Featured Author + Giveaway: Aoife Marie Sheridan

Hi guys, I have another author to feature for this month and I will probably do this thing once a month if I could. Today, I’m lucky to be able to feature one of my author friend whom I adore so much. She writes good books and series which I’m sure other readers would love. Let me introduce to you the author of Saskia Trilogy, Demon Series and her upcoming book is Drowning in Lies (Seven of Kings Series), Aoife Marie Sherdan. 
Aoife Marie Sheridan has loved
reading from a very young age, starting off with mills and boon books
given to by her grandmother. Her love for romances grew, by the age of
14 she had read hundreds of them.

Aoife has a passion for
writing poetry or in her eyes her journal entries. It was something she
did throughout her teens and into her twenties. Aoife won first place
for two of her poems and had them published at a young age of just
nineteen.

Aoife’s first book Eden Forest (Part one of the Saskia
Trilogy) took first place with Writers Got Talent 2013. Aoife continues
to write tales of fantasy and romance.

Tell me something about you aside from being an author.

I love to help other authors promote their work. So I
created a platform called ultimate fantasy books. link: www.ultimatefantasybooks.com Here
we promote an author weekly and also showcase books that are on special
offer.   We also give each author their
own page listing their books, purchase links and a bit about themselves. Competitions
are running from this site as well as weekly reviews.



When did you start writing?



In 2011 is when I put pen to paper and since then I haven’t
stopped.




What inspires you to become a writer?



For me it was the passing of two people. Writing became my
escape, my way to cope. I feel grateful each day that I found writing it’s made
me feel complete.

Why would readers choose your book to read?



If a reader is looking for an adventure with some romance
and plenty of magic then my books are the ones. I also use life experience to
write the sadder scenes, I really dig deep to make them as real as possible. I
pour my heart, soul and sweat into my writing.

How do you handle negative reviews?



At the start they would make me cry, but I am three years
writing, publishing and reading reviews so I like to think I’m a bit stronger
now. 🙂




What do you consider first, plot or characters?



Plot, my stories are plot driven. It’s always at the
forefront of my mind. But as my characters grow they change the flow of the
story.




Would you consider writing a different genre than the one
you used to?



I already have I normally write fantasy. But my book Hunters
is a paranormal horror, and right now I am writing a romantic comedy with an
element of magic in it.




Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the
buying process?



100% yes. For me when I’m looking for a book to read the
cover is the first thing I look for and I do believe most people do this also.
I think money should be poured into the cover and the editing of a book, as
they are the most important.

Do you have an upcoming book? Can you share something about
it?



I have a short story about Queen Bellona coming out early
this year with the re-release of the Saskia Trilogy. I will also be releasing
hunted part two of the Demon Series.


Any message to your readers?

I would like to thank every single reader that picked up one
of my books and took the time to read and review them. Without you guys writing
would still be a far away dream. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.
