Indie Hoopla Promos: The Guardians of Man Tour part 2 (#IndieHooplaPromos)

Tour Schedule Here

We'd like to welcome to our blog, Author Connor Titus (which is the combined writing talents of authors Lori Titus and Crystal Connor). Because there are two wonderful authors who helped write this book, I asked if I could host them twice during this tour to give us a chance to pick both ladies' brains.

Today we are going to with Crystal Connnor.

What gave you the idea for this particular story?
I’m not really sure what gave the idea to write Mt. Empyreal, it was almost a spur of the moment kind of thing that turned into something that we are so both very much in love with and proud of.

Which genres do you write, which do you prefer, and why?
I write in several genres(science fiction, dark fantasy, supernatural) but the foundation for everything I write is built on horror. The reason I like the genre is because it’s the way I like to be entertained. I like things that are dark around the edges. Always have.

What is the toughest part about being a writer and how do you get past it?
The toughest part about writing for a living is the marketing and promoting and there is no way to get past it. This is something that has to be done consistently and at 110%. It’s a learning curve because there is no magic formula and what works for one author might not work for another.

What kind of research did you do for this type of story?
For my version of events that happened at Fates Keep the research I did was Jewish, Islamic Christian religion mythology, as well as mythos from Native American’s, Pagan along with the history from Lori’s Marradith Ryder series.

What about your book makes it special?

Two things: 1st the fact that there’s two of them, and 2ndly that you do not need to read both of them to know what’s going on! Both books (though we’d love it if you do read them both.)

The Guardians of Man by Connor Titus

In the valley of Mt. Empyreal, the fight for humanity has already begun.

In the mountain community of Fate's Keep, the global power outage and the onset of winter are only the beginning of what is yet to come. Along with the first snowfall, an ancient evil has come. With time running out, will the Guardians be able to save mankind?
