Author Interview with D Lieber

Author of The Exiled Otherkin

Welcome D.Lieber

I’m really pleased to host D Lieber on my blog today, the author of The Exiled Otherkin – I confess I haven’t read it – yet!

About the book:
Exiled from Faerie when her father dies, half-Fae Ember is surprised by how much the human realm has changed since she was there last. She takes a dangerous job on a merchant airship, hoping a life on the move will keep her well-hidden. Sure, she misses her brother, but years of apathy have numbed her emotions.

When the optimistic and naive Reilley follows her, it’s annoying to say the least. But when she starts feeling responsible for him, long-stifled emotions crack the ice around her heart. 

Faeries, pirates, and traveling players meet in this steampunk fantasy adventure as Ember tries to cope with feelings long forgotten and a past that pursues her while balancing new friends and lovers.

Author Interview
Tell us about your book(s) and the genres you write in.
I write in many offshoots of fantasy romance. The Exiled Otherkin is a steampunk adventure fantasy romance about a half-fae who is stripped of her magic and exiled from Faerie to the steampunk human realm.

Who’s your favourite character (or least favourite) and why?
I love all of my characters in their own way, but I think my favourite character in The Exiled Otherkin is Sasha because of how much work went into writing him. He’s just a side character, but it took all of my finesse for him to turn out the way I wanted. I’ve even had readers request he get his own spin-off book, and I’m seriously considering it.

How much time do you spend writing?
Too much and not as much as I would like.

Where is your favourite place to write?
I like to write at home, alone, in my pajamas.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve had to research?
Researching how to murder people for my books always makes me feel weird. Don’t judge me by my browser history. I’m an author, not a serial killer.

Who’s your favourite author and/or favourite books.
My favourite book is The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.

What are you working on now?
The next book readers will likely see after The Exiled Otherkin is called Intended Bondmates. I just finished the blurb for it:
Vampires may feed on humans, but nothing is as irresistible to them as fae blood.
Runa has long given up on being content with her life. Her only goal is to protect Mikhail until he awakens and gains his full magic. For the last thirteen years, ever since tragedy struck when they were children, she has protected him as was expected of his werewolf guardian. Though she has started looking for a mate, she can’t imagine what will happen once she’s free of Mikhail. But when he requests to be unbound from her before his awakening, she’s given the chance to return to her intended bondmate.
She expects a warm welcome from Konner, not foreseeing his bitterness at having been abandoned. Konner isn’t the only one who is bitter. His brother’s guardian, Rowan, has had to protect both faelings while she was with Mikhail.
It’s up to Runa to find a way to soothe these two demanding males if she hopes to make up for her past betrayal.

When you’re not writing, what do you get up to?
I binge watch shows when I have time, usually Korean drama. But, right now, I’m trying to catch up on Supernatural.

Where can readers go to find out more about you and your writing?
They could go to my website, www.dlieber.com, and subscribe to my newsletter. They can also connect with me on Facebook, www.facebook.com/dlieberwriting or Google+, www.google.com/+DLieber. And I always love to hear what they think on Goodreads, https://www.goodreads.com/dlieberwriting.

Author Bio

D. writes stories she wants to read. Her love of the worlds of fiction led her to earn a Bachelor’s in English from Wright State University.

When she isn’t reading or writing, she’s probably hiking, crafting, watching anime, Korean television, Bollywood, or old movies. She may also be getting her geek on while planning her next steampunk cosplay with friends.

She lives in Wisconsin with her husband (John), retired guide dog (Samwise), and cat (Yin).

Thanks for your time D Lieber!

My next author interview will be with Shaun Griffiths – and I’ll review the third book in his trilogy too 🙂
