Author Interview + Day 4 of Blogiversary Giveaways: Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Trilogy, #3) 
Expected Release Date: April 29, 2014

It's time.
Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways. 
The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous-especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna's great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she's prepared to risk. 

Author Interview
Morning Swooners!
I am sooo excited, because Wendy Higgins is here to talk about Sweet Reckoning and See Me today! Thank you so much for taking the time to be here with us.

1.) What is your favorite part of being a writer?
~Besides the actual writing, which is always such a neat feeling to let the imagination flow, my favorite part is interacting with other readers and writers. The book community is so positive and so fun. Geeking out over books is the best!

2.) Was there a character that was more difficult to write in your Sweet Trilogy and why?
~Oh, yes, Kaidan Rowe has always been my difficult character, but also my favorite. He challenges me as a writer. I tweak his scenes more than any others. He's a bit of a dichotomy - torn between his true nature and his trained nature.  He's a hardened character who shows just enough moments of softness for us to not hate him. A lot of people ask for me to write the whole book from his point of view, but I could never do that. It would be too hard. And I think some things about Kaidan should remain a mystery. Readers have a pretty good imagination. They know what he's been up to!

3.) What is the most difficult part of being a writer?
~The pressure of wanting to make everyone happy, when that's not realistic. 

4.) I am really excited about Sweet Reckoning, what can you tell us about it?
~Yay! I'm excited too! Well, it picks up right where book two leaves off, and it spans a two-week timeframe. It's fast paced. We see more of all our Neph allies and more Jay too. It's a stressful ride, and was very emotional for me.

5.) Do you have a favorite scene or quote in Sweet Reckoning?
~My favorite lines are the very last ones, but I can't share them! Rats. ;)  Some of my other favorite lines are too spoilery. I've tried to be really cautious what I give away because I HATE spoilers, and I wouldn't want to ruin the fun of discovery for anyone.

6.) I read the deleted scene you posted on your blog from See Me! Can you tell us more about this story?
~SEE ME is a self-publication that just came out on St. Patrick's Day.  It's a fun, cute, and swoony fantasy set in Ireland. If you're looking for a light read with a sweet romance and lots of laughs, you might like this one!  

7.) Are you working on anything new at the moment?
~I have two other books in the works. Both YA. One is fantasy and one is contemporary. I hope to get more finished on them soon! Neither story has been picked up by a publisher yet.
