The Amethyst Dragon Series Blog Tour!!

The Amethyst Dragon Series
Pixie Dust tour

Pixie Dust blurb:
In the shadowy recesses of Orbis Alia, Avalon's darkest realm, the Winter Dragon weaves his intricate, evil spell like a spider web; delicately poised to ensnare his prey once and for all.
Yet somewhere in the land of Tir na nog, Dade Blue-Therror fights back with magic if his own. The crown prince of the Seelie Court will not lose his Chuisle, Shelby, to the madness of his greatest foe.
The battle of good versus evil is about to begin. Father against son, brother against brother.  And for Dademond, the stakes have never been higher.

1) what inspired the series but also what drove Pixie Dust?
The Amethyst Dragon series was actually inspired by a set of faery art tarot cards I bought. There was one card in particular that inspired the character we now call Tryamon - she was the first. Before I knew it, two hours and a LOT of scribbling later I had the groundwork for what would be the plot line for Dragon Wings.
Pixie Dust itself is simply an extension or continuation of what is the entire story of Dade Blue-Therror, the Amethyst Dragon, and his Chuisle Shelby. The driving force behind book two is that emphasis on the classic conflict of good versus evil - AND the theory that deep down, we're all basically good people.

2) with so many plot twists was it hard to keep the story straight or would it veer off?
The majority of the series has been plotted out from the beginning. I have tons of post-its and papers with my guidelines scattered across my desk to keep me straight. These characters essentially live inside my mind, so I know them inside and out. It's pretty easy to keep it straight, but sometimes I do think of new ideas I want to incorporate. THAT'S when the compartmentalizing and cutting begins, hahaha!

3) do you listen to music when you write? If so what inspired Pixie Dust for you?
Music is a MUST for me when I write! The Script is a huge part of the series for me - their music really speaks to me, and the situations my characters find themselves in. The Man Who Can't Be Moved, for example, truly speaks of Dade's determination in Pixie Dust to be with Shelby against all odds. Then we have Operation Mindcrime by Queensryche, which fueled a lot of Leo's scenes.
All in all, my musical tastes are pretty broad, so I tend to listen to songs that fit the mood of the scene I'm writing at the time.

4) the end was a mind blower. Did it upset you to write it the way it upset me to read it?
Hahaha! Well, without risking a spoiler, it's always hard to put a character "through the grinder." They're friends, children and family to me, and while it can be really difficult to strike those computer keys and put their fate into motion, I comfort myself with the fact that it makes for damn good reading. AND I can always, as the author, write whatever surprises and changes I see fit in later installments... ;)
Then there are those moments, too, that my friend Julie Kagawa and I agree on: sometimes it is just wicked fun to play God with a character and totally wreck their lives. Hehe! ;)

5) finally, what advice would you give future or aspiring authors?
I had a professor in college who gave the best advice I can ever pass on: "Write. Always." No matter what you're doing, find the story in it. Take some time later and write it down. Take notes when something inspires you, or speak it onto a recorder for later review. Stories are all around us. It's up to us to breathe life into them for the world to enjoy. :)
PS - Want to see the picture that started it all and inspired the character of Tryamon? Visit me on Twiiter - I've posted the actual card there! Come see me at @authordcgrace - thanks for having me! <3

A Special Quote: 
Night had already fallen when I reached Mag Mell and I was grateful for the cloak of darkness. In need of a bath and wearing tattered, filthy clothes, I looked a fright, but I pushed forward. None would recognize me as I was, and that was a good thing. So as light from a tiny village grew closer, I kept my head down and made my way toward a quaint mercantile still open for business.
The shopkeeper kept a curious eye on me as I perused the little shop, mindful of where I put my dirty hands. I was careful to keep my magic muted against the prying of the fall clan curator so as not to be recognized. It was a risky thing I was doing, but no one would stop me. Not meeting his gaze, I held up a long, hooded russet cloak.
“How much, sir?” I asked.
“More than the likes of ye can afford, not doubt,” came his gruff reply. “Don’t be wasting me time, lad, I be closing up soon.”
“How much, sir?” I asked again, tempering my frustration.
The pixie man let go a long, weary sigh before answering. “Fifty shilling and not a half-pence less. Now off with ye.”
Reaching inside the coin pouch at my hip, I pulled forth a large, silver coin worth almost twice the amount. It sang with a metallic clink as I flicked it across the shop and into the surprised man’s hand. Without another word, I pulled the cloak from the rack and tied it around my neck.
“Apologies, my good man,” the shopkeeper stammered. “Let me count thy change.”
“No need,” I replied with a wave of my hand. “Good evening.”
Pulling the hood up over my head, I could feel his eyes still fixed on me, curious to know who I was. Without a backward glance, I made my way out of the modest shop and slipped into the shadows.
The cloak fluttered around my legs as a chill wind swept across the landscape of Mag Mell. Like Tir na nog existed in eternal springtime, so the home of the fall clans reigned in endless autumn. Leaves of gold, red and amber crunched beneath my feet as I moved along the edge of the village, surreptitiously avoiding passersby. No one need know my purpose for traversing the near three day walk into the land of the Orange and Yellow clans...

The Next Big Thing Blog Hop!!!

This is a fun little something to do for people to get to know me... if you dont already follow my opinionated facebook!!

Q1: What is the working title of your book? Ah, here I have a few. Concrete Angel, Southern Sin Series, and Soul Game Anthology..

Q2: Where did the idea for the book come from? I get my ideas from emotions I feel, what do I want and what do I see. I like to see stories of heartache salvaged through simple human traits like forgiveness and love.

Q3: What genre does your book fall under? Paranormal and Adult so far.

Q4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Hmm for Concrete Angel, I'd pick Adrain Brody to play Nathan and for Ethereal hmm she'd have to be someone meek yet with inner strength. So I pick Anne Hathaway. Big dreams I know right lol

Q5: What is the one sentence synopsis for your book? Again Concrete Angel, The hardest part of forgiveness is understanding.

Q6: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? Right now I'm not sure but I'm always up for suggestions!!

Q7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? A few months on the shorts but the anthology has been a year long work I've had going on.

Q8: What other books would you compare this story to, within your genre? None, I don't like to compare books often. Each book and writer is unique in their own way.

Q9: Who or what inspired you to write this book? Emotions and seeing less of them in the world!

Q10: What else about your book might pique the readers' interest? It's always about who you are inside not what you are outside! Be who you are and never let anyone hold you back from what you want!!
