Today I’m hosting author Efthalia all the way from Sydney, Australia for the blog tour for her upcoming novel Phantasma. G’day Efthalia!
Tell me a bit about yourself, your hobbies, likes and dislikes.
I’m a mother of two who lives in Sydney, Australia. I am currently studying the Classics and Archaeology at Sydney University.
I love cake and coffee. Yes, lots of coffee! There isn’t any real space for any hobbies at the moment.
Dislikes…people that don’t use deodorant in the summer.
How did you get into writing?
I always thought I would go down the path of journalism but “I took the road less travelled,” as you do because life is just like that. Many years later I woke up one morning and said I want to write and so I did and here I am.
Did you choose the genre you write in or do your stories lead you?
I pretty much chose it because I have a love for Mythology, it only made sense that I would write fantasy/paranormal because it felt natural to me.
Give me all the wonderful facts about when I can get a copy and where?
It’s available at all the major online retails.
Barns and Noble
How did you come up with the idea for this book?
It all started with the one scene, my heroine running but I didn’t know what from. When I sat down to write I had really rough notes and most of the story grew from there. There was a bit of“writing by the seat of my pants,” going on.
Who is your favourite character in this story and why?
Oh, that’s always a hard question for an author. It’s like asking which kid do we like best but because you asked I have to say the one that makes me smile and giggle is Adam. He’s a cheeky wolf.
Will you tell the readers your favourite scene, if you can without giving away too much information? (This is totally an optional question.)
Oh, I have many but I will give you this one – Adam with a Scottish accent. You will see why when you get to it. (Smiley face)
About the Book
Genre: Fantasy / Paranormal Romance
One night’s transgression. A love unveiled. The in-escapable outcome of passion and vengeance.
Carissa Alkippes is a daughter of a god but she doesn’t know it. As a cop she’s seen her fair share of bad but nothing prepared her for the horror of the world she has been plunged into.
Xen Lyson is the head of the Phi Athanatoi, a group of immortals who have been protecting man for over 2,000 years from the Kakodiamones – demons who want nothing more than to feast on humanity.
Thrown face to face with Xen during a skirmish with the demons, Carissa becomes a pawn in a deadly game of a demi-god who seeks godly power.
Efthalia lives in the beautiful city of Sydney Australia, with her husband and her two children who keep her immersed in all things family. Her passion for mythical stories was born from the stories her mother told her as a child.
