Rebecca Rogers Interview and Book Giveaway

I’d like to welcome Rebecca Rogers back to Book Blather. The last time she visited, she blogged about self-publishing and had one book, Silver Moon, up on Amazon. She now has three books available. Yes, three. Looks like someone wasn’t paying attention (that would be me). 
You have a chance to win one of Rebecca's book if you do the following: Leave a comment telling us which book you would like. Could it be any easier?
 Thanks for dropping by, Rebecca.
   Thank you for having me, Marilee. :)

  You’ve been a busy lady since last you visited Book Blather. You’ve published a sequel to Silver Moon titled Black Moon, a continuation of Candra and Ben’s story. Do you have more books planned for the series?

Yep. I’m actually hoping to release a prequel to Silver Moon this September, which is the story of how the werewolf curse began for Candra’s and Ben’s families over five hundred years ago. The third book in the series, titled Blood Moon, will be released sometime next year.

You’ve also published another book, Under the Stars that seems to have a Sci Fi flavor. Did you write this book before Silver Moon? Do you plan to make it a series?

Under the Stars was technically the third book I’ve written, but the second to be published. Unfortunately, I don’t have plans to make Under the Stars into a series. With the way it ended, I just don’t think it’s possible.

You’re becoming a very prolific writer. What’s next?

Well, I’m currently working on an edgy contemporary set for release this summer. It’s about a girl who discovers a homeless, drug-addicted boy during a vacation at her parents’ lake house, and what lengths she’ll push herself to save him. It’s titled Last Summer.

After this, of course, is the prequel to Silver Moon, set to release in September, Blood Moon at the beginning of 2013, and then the start of a new high fantasy series also out next year.

Any promotional tips for your fellow authors?

I’ve found that kindness goes a very, very long way when it comes to readers, whether they love or hate your work. The more you interact, the more down to earth and humble you appear, and the easier they can relate to you. Basically, don’t put yourself on a pedestal because you’re published.

Also, to gain a readership, readers LOVE giveaways—Goodreads, blogs, anywhere! Free books are awesome in this tough economy. I know this because I’m constantly scouring the freebies on Amazon. ;)

Self publishing seems to have worked out well for you. Any regrets?

Nope. Can’t say that I have any. I have freedom to do what I want, how I want. The only downside is not being able to reach all corners of the globe via foreign rights or to see your book(s) in the local superstores (Wal-Mart, Target, etc.). Other than this, I’m extremely content with where I’m at as far as publishing goes.

How about an excerpt from one of your books?

Here’s a snippet of Black Moon I posted on my blog at the end of December:

Rebecca Rogers expressed her creative side at an early age and hasn't stopped since. She won't hesitate to tell you that she lives inside her imagination, and it's better than reality.

  2. What a great post! :)
    Not only because the giveway but also because Rebecca.
    I have her book Under the stars in Kindle eBook, but I would love to see it on my shelf.
    So, if the giveway is International (I'm Hungarian), I would like the book Under the stars.
    I wish I luck. :D

    PS: Sorry for my bad English. My reading skill of this language is very good, but my writing ... not really. :/
