Interview + Giveaway: The Belgrave Daughter by Zara Hoffman

Hey everyone! I’m so excited to have Zara Hoffman, author of The Belgrave Daughter (November 25, 2013) here for an interview today! Here’s the official Goodreads excerpt for the book:

Belgrave Daughter

The Semptemgeminus Prophecy states: “A powerful sorceress with blood laced in gold sevenfold shall determine the fate of the world.”

Fawn Belgrave’s magical powers are the coveted prize in a bet between God and the Devil.

When she meets Caleb, the dark angel assigned to seduce her, her life is turned upside down.

Hope you guys enjoy the interview!

Question: Describe your book in ten words or less. Go!
Answer: A dark angel is sent to seduce young witch.

Question: The Belgrave Daughter has magic, prophecies, devils and dark angels. What made you gravitate towards those subjects?
Answer: I always liked the ideas of humans having powers, and struggled with the idea of fate and destiny, so the two combined and the Belgrave Daughter happened.

Question: What authors inspired you to write?
Answer: JK Rowling and James Patterson

Question: You’re a writer and a student. How do you get everything done?
Answer: I do all my homework during my free periods at school and use the rest of my time to write.

Question: What made you decide to self-publish? Do you think you’ll ever attempt traditional publishing?
Answer: I researched traditional publishing for two years, but decided I wanted to keep my creative executive power (editing, title, cover, etc)

Question: As a self-published author, what is your editing process like?
Answer: Lots and LOTS of revisions. I went through The Belgrave Daughter 8 times!

Question: Biggest writing quirk?
Answer: I do it with music playing or amidst a bunch of noise. I’m never as productive in silence as I am with background noise.

Question: What are three must-have items when you sit down to write?
Answer: My phone, WiFi, charged laptop, and headphones.

Question: What book are you currently reading?
Answer: Nothing at the moment. Junior year of high school has been a bit busy lately.

Question: What advice do you have for other teenagers your age, who really want to write and get published?
Answer: Persevere and never stop writing, editing, and revising.

Question: Are you working on anything new?
Answer: I’m currently writing the sequel to The Belgrave Daughter, called Tears of an Angel, then after I finish the trilogy with The Witch’s War, I plan on writing a fairytale retelling series called Fearful Fairytales. For more info on all my books, you can check out my website:
