Lonely. That's how it felt when Damien Pierce returned to Big Timber, Montana. It had been his childhood home until the day he was hit by a speeding car only to learn he wasn't badly hurt. The experience landed him the label of the town freakshow.

Following the death of his foster mom, Damien soon disconnected from the world around him. That was at least, until he met her. She looked human but something about made her appear otherworldly to him. He knew he shouldn't but he wanted her. He would do anything to get to know her. To have her.

Jillian Styles was immortal. Cursed by a dark god never to find rest. A shifter capable of taking the form of a beautiful wolf. She had searched for her lover's reincarnated soul for centuries only to find he was nowhere to be found. When she meets Damien, her world is turned upside down. She falls in love with him instantly and begins to pursue him.

However, Damien soon learns the darker part of Jill's world. He finds himself on the hit list of the same vampire Lord responsible for killing Jill's lover and reigniting the flames of an old war. His daughter desires Damien and vows to have him at any cost.

With the help of Alexander Kain, the mysterious wolf shifting soldier, Damien will learn what he thought he knew was only tip of the paranormal iceberg. He soon finds himself in the eyes of a vindictive and rage-filled dark god.

If you like hot lycanthrope guys, overly possessive vampire chicks, vindictive gods, strong female leads and some hot sex scenes, this book is for you.



Interview with Blaise Ramsay

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Blessing of
Luna?

Damien Pierce is a young man who has suffered multiple traumatic
events in his life which resulted in his contracting a very serious case
of PTSD. Jillian Styles is an immortal lycanthrope who is searching
for the soul of her dead lover. Through a chance meeting, Damien
happens to be the new vessel for Jill’s lover’s soul. Soon however,
she finds she doesn’t care. Both are very damaged. Jill has long time
had to be a very independent woman but she doesn’t want to be. She
wants to have a mate so she can be what a lycan female wants to be.
Damien starts out as an incredibly weak character, one can almost
say like a teenager. He is made to shift through the different
experiences. This is where the drastic character shift happens and it
is something usually not seen in paranormal romance. Alexander
Kain is the mentor character or the catalyst that helps each of these
characters change. He is my favorite and is the main character in
book two.

Can you tell us a little bit about your next books or what you
have planned for the future?

For this year, I have a novella project set to release by either
December of this year or January of 2019. It is a romantic suspense
set in Regency Era England. Bane of Tenebris, Wolfgods 2, is due
next year either early June or mid-July. As far as FyreSyde
Publishing goes, I will be looking towards running more fundraisers,
charity streams and live events to help give back to the public who
has already given so much support.

How long would you say it takes you to write a book?

Honestly, it depends. For example, this summer, I have chosen to
step back and work on the next step in FyreSyde’s future which does
not include just my own books but hopefully other fun things as well.
On average, I can write a 50K book in a month. A novella usually only
takes me a few weeks, like two or three for a first draft. Then I let the
manuscript rest before reading it again and doing the first round of
edits. All in all, it can take about five months to finish a novel from
start to finish.

What is your favorite childhood book?

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Pickles in Pittsburg were
always my favorite short reads. For longer read, Goosebumps was
always a go to. I love getting scared, which is why Halloween is a
favorite time of year for me and the first fundraiser I’m planning to
run. I’m in need of authors willing to contribute books and book swag
just so you know!

If you could spend the day with one of the characters from
Blessing of Luna who would it be? Please tell us why you chose
this particular character, where you would go and what you
would do.

That would be Kain. He is a favorite of mine. I love him so much
because inside he is so broken. Someone who keeps a cold mask of
reserve to hide the fact he’s actually suffering so badly. We would go
to his favorite bar and enjoy a few drinks, maybe some pool and
generally talk over where I’m planning on going with the next two
series. He is an amazing character and one of the most complicated.

What was the hardest scene from Blessing of Luna to write?

That would be the death of Chelsea. I had such a hard time not
tearing up in this scene. When I read it to one of my alpha readers,
they actually did cry. It’s such an emotional period in the book that
serves as a great start to internal conflict that I won’t spoil here.
*wink*

What made you want to become a writer?

I worked fifteen years in the conceptual art and character design
industry when I started to notice a recurring trend. The designs
started feeling empty and I wasn’t getting the same sense of
fulfillment I used to get. One night I decided to open up Microsoft
Word *hiss* and started writing. The Good Luck Cat was the first
published short story on the art site I was apart of. It won the highest
reward the site offers and I decided, maybe I have a future in this.
The first novel I wrote but didn’t publish was a Biker Romance after
reading some amazing stories by A.E Fisher. She inspired me to
write novels and after doing NaNoWriMo, Blessing of Luna was born!
