  1. Describe your relationship with a good book.

I have a love-hate relationships with books. I love reading them, delving in the story, and living with the characters. I hate the fact that they wrap me up in their world and leave me sleep deprived and begging for more.

  1. When did you first start writing and what was the first thing that you wrote that you were proud of?

I started writing in 2011 when my sister went into the Navy. The first piece I was proud of was a short story that was printed in a horror anthology. Unfortunately, the anthology was only printed for the backers of a Kickstarter project and will not be printed publicly.

  1. Please describe your work ethic as an author.

Work ethic? Well, I try to write as often as possible without ignoring my family. But sometimes thing happen and I forgets that life exists outside of my books. When it comes to special requests or edits, I try to jump on them as soon as I can. Overall, I think I have a fairly decent work ethic.

  1. How do you balance your work as an author with the other aspects of your life?

It’s really hard to find a balance. There aren’t enough hours to get everything I want to do done. I fit writing in whenever I can. It usually cuts in to the time I have to sleep. But, somehow, with the help of the amazing men in my life, I manage to get most of my things done.

5.  What do you hope to accomplish in the next five years, both as an author and in your outside life?

The next five years. I don’t even know what I’m going to have for dinner tonight, let alone my plans for next five years. I hope to finish the two series that I have started and a plethora of half-baked manuscripts waiting on my computer. I also hope to retire from my job to work full time on my books. I would like to do a little traveling, but other than that, I have no idea.

6.  Since you are a storyteller, please tell one good lie about yourself.

When I was sixteen, I worked in the catering department at a haunted amusement park. One evening, while cleaning up after a catered picnic, my coworker and I were sent to gather the last of the food from the cooler in the shelter. As we went out, we were surprised to find a young girl in a blue dress standing in the middle of the picnic shelter. It was well after dark and we had been closed for a while. No one should have been there. When we called out to ask if she was lost, she looked at us then turned and walked straight through a six foot tall privacy fence. Needless to say, the shelter did not get cleaned that night.

I’ll leave it up to you to decide if that is a real or not… either way it’s a GREAT story!

On The Accidental Wings of Dragons–Giveaway and Book Tour by JGBS

Wings-of-Dragon-Tour-Banner

Title: On the Accidental Wings of Dragons

Series: The Dragons of Eternity #1

Author: Julie Wetzel

Published: June 9th, 2015

Publisher: Crimson Tree Publishing

Genre: NA Romantic Fantasy

Content Warning: Violence, language, sexual content

Synopsis: When Michael Duncan is sent to investigate the disappearance of several dragon subjects, he finds himself in a bind. Locked in a dungeon, his only hope lies wrapped in a bundle of cloth tossed at his feet. One kiss and his life is changed forever. Hunted by his own people for crimes he didn’t commit, Michael has to learn a whole new life at the hands of a beautiful woman. Can she help him clear his name, or will just being in her presence get him sentenced to death?

Carissa Markel doesn’t know who this man chained to the wall is, but he’s her only chance for escape. She has power, but, born without a voice, she lacks the means to wield it. One choice, made in desperation, sends them running for his life. Does she have the strength to help him clear his name? And what will her brother, the King of Dragons, do if he finds out what she’s done? That’s immaterial, the real question is… can she keep her hands off him long enough to find out?

Her anger flamed again as she went on. “And now, you have the nerve to come out here, demanding that I hand him over. After having heard his case. Seeing the evidence! And you call yourself a king? How dare you! You’re nothing but a three-footed, webbed-winged…”

Carissa’s mouth moved as she continued to insult Kyle, but her anger had burned through the magic holding Michael’s voice. A smirk broke out across Kyle’s face, inflaming Carissa’s anger even more. Reaching out, she grabbed the front of his shirt and slammed her lips to his, stealing his voice.

This is not a laughing matter!” she screamed at him.

Shock raced across Kyle’s face. She rarely borrowed his voice. And she never took it without asking. His knees caught the edge of the couch, and he went down.

She glared at him as he sat on the couch. “You want Michael? Fine!” Carissa turned and stormed back into the kitchen. Michael tried to scamper away from the raging woman, but she snatched him up. “Fine!” she yelled again as she stormed back to her shocked brother. “Here!” She dumped the little dragon into her brother’s lap.

Kyle’s hands came up to keep Michael from falling off.

Don’t you dare hurt one goddamn scale on his hide! Do you hear me? He’s mine! And if you even think about asking how he got to be a dragon, you will rue the day you were hatched!

What’s your name?” the man asked. His voice was pleasant and warm with a bit of an accent that Cathren could spend hours listening to under other circumstances.

Cathren,” she informed him as she pulled on the smile she used for difficult customers.

Cathren.” The man repeated her name with a bit of a roll in the ‘r’. “Such a fitting name.” His eyes twinkled with merriment before getting serious. “Well, Cathren, my name is Patrick, and I don’t know how you’ve done it, but you caught me. Now what do you want?” Patrick leaned his elbow on the counter. The corner of his mouth turned up in amusement.

What?” Cathren asked, confused.

Patrick pushed the sleeve of his sweater up and showed her his forearm. A bloody fingerprint stained his skin. “What do you want?” he asked again, holding the toned arm out for her to see.

I am so sorry.” Cathren gasped as she pulled out some paper towels from under the counter. Squirting some hand sanitizer on them, she wiped her blood off his arm. The blood had perfectly covered a small tattoo of a shamrock. It was an odd place to put the clover—seeing as he had no other tattoos—and she couldn’t have hit it more exactly if she tried.

It’s fine, lass.” The man pushed her worrying hands away and glanced at the tattoo on his arm. “Looks like you get three.” He looked back up at her. “Now, what do you want?”

Cathren just shook her head, not understanding him. “What do you mean?”

Patrick let out a resigned breath. “Traditionally, when you catch a leprechaun, they have to barter for their release.” A wry smirk slipped across his face. “And since I couldn’t stop the magic from settling, it looks like I’m going to be held to that tradition. It’s just turned into your lucky day. You get three wishes. Now, what do you want?”

Granting-Wishes (1)

Leprechauns don’t exist. Or that’s what Cathren has always believed, but a chance encounter changes everything. When she saves a handsome stranger from a nasty electrical shock, not only does he claim to be one, but he also insists on granting her wishes. Now she must decide— is he insane, or a magical creature of lore? Unsure which is true, she grabs at the first three wishes she can think of: true love, happiness, and waffles. A tall order for most men, but not for Patrick Brogan. With a little persistence and just a touch of magic, anything is possible.
