As my final stop on the tour bus for the Denai Touch blog tour, I requested Tiffany to write a guest post for me. I asked her what inspired her to write this book.
So without further ado, I’ll hand you over to Tiffany…
My first guest post, exciting and slightly terrifyingly!
So, what inspired me to write Denai Touch?
I got bored of contemporary fiction when I was a teenager. My first urban fantasy novel was Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison and I absolutely loved it.
I’ve always had a fascination for witches and it was nice to read about them being portrayed in a different kind of way. I think this was probably what inspired me to start writing my own paranormal/urban fantasy novel.
As well as reading fantasy I also enjoy reading crime and studied law in college so that inspired me too.
I always knew I wanted to write a novel involving immortals who worked on some kind of law enforcement team and use their powers to help people and solve crimes.
The story went through several different incarnations before I finally settled on one idea.
The first character who I think was fully formed was my main character, Cate. The idea was there would be a woman who was extremely powerful and born with a lot of authority over people.
I wondered, what would this woman be like? And what kind of person would love her?
Thus began Cate and Jason’s story.
So there you have it. Thank you for that interesting post, Tiffany. If after everything you’ve read about this fantastic book you want to buy it for yourself, click here. And don’t forget to enter the giveaway here – you only have six days left!
