Check this out! A bunch of the characters from the Dark Moon Falls boxed set asked if they could be featured on my blog. Since I luuuuuuuv it when characters come to life on the pages, of course I said yes, please! I hope you enjoy these interviews, because you’re going to see a fair number of them in the next few weeks…
Author: Ava K Michaels
Title of Book: Asher (part of the Dark Moon Falls Volume II boxed set)
Character Name: Asher
Is this the hero/heroine/antagonist? Hero
Q: Intro the book.
Well, I’ve been forced to call in a favor from an old friend, Jagger, after I left the military and returned to my old pack. I knew it wouldn’t be easy going back there, not with the beta and alpha being jerks, and I was right. I ended up in a fight with the beta almost right away so I had to leave. I spent a few nights in a motel, trying to figure out what to do, or where to go, before calling Jag and explaining what’d happened … he stepped right up and told me to come to Dark Moon Falls. He’s managed to get me a job in the police department there, and spoken with the alpha … I’m hoping things work out.
Q: Tell us about yourself. Do you consider yourself your author’s muse or bane of her/his existence?
I can be a bit of a pain in the ass, to be honest. I like to be in charge, so I think, and I might be wrong, but I doubt I am, if you ask Ava, she’d say I’m a damn nuisance.
Q: What do you think readers will like best about you? Worst?
I’ll go with worst first, get it out of the way … I hate to go be wrong, fact is. I rarely am. I’ve worked so long being a detective that I notice little things others don’t, and I put my skills together to piece shit together … it can annoy people. On the other hand, I’m loyal, and I’ll go out of my way to help fight for others. If someone’s in trouble and I’ll do whatever’s necessary. It’s in my DNA.
Q: Let’s get serious for a few moments… Favorite beverage?
Really? You call that a serious question? Well, I guess it is … a good, cold beer at the end of the day is the best way to unwind. Especially if you’ve been out in the field with bullets flying.
Q: Vegetarian or red meat?
You do know I’m a wolf, right? Meat of any kind is my go to food. I like to hunt, preferably while I’m in my wolf form. There’s nothing like rushing through the forest with the scent of prey in my nostrils.
Q: Sleep in pajamas or in the nude?
Is this for your personal information? Sorry, I didn’t catch your name? Anyway, I’ll answer, and it’s always nude …
Q: Lights on or lights out?
That’s a loaded question. Do you mean for sleeping, or for something else? I’m guessing it’s the latter … and that’s easy. Always lights on. I want to see every reaction, the smile, the gasp, the shiver as I … well I guess I should stop there. Don’t you?
Q: In the beginning of the book, do you have a mate/spouse? If so, tell us about him/her. If not, is there someone you have your eye on? Or who has their eye on you?
I arrive in Dark Moon Falls alone, and with no plans other than settling into a new job, pack and life. It doesn’t quite work out like that though. Not after I meet Savannah … there’s something about her I can’t resist, but she’s hiding something from me and I don’t like secrets.
Q: Favorite place to seduce your partner?
There’s so many places to have fun. As a shifter I love the forest, nature … it’s where I belong … it’s wild like I am and can be quite exciting for other things too.
Q: What do you wish the heroine understood about you?
I wish Savannah could’ve trusted me earlier. If she had it would’ve solved so many issues … between us, and saved a whole helluva lot of trouble for so many people.
Q: If you could rewrite one scene in the book, what would it be? How would you rewrite?
The moment I asked Savannah to trust me and tell me the truth. If she had things would’ve turned out differently. I could’ve shown her a different path, shown her that trusting me was the best way …
Q: Has your author ever put you into an embarrassing situation? How did you handle it?
Yes, she damn well did. Forcing me to talk about my ‘feelings’. I don’t do that shit, but she made me. I felt like my mouth was full of cotton wool, my heart was beating so hard and I felt like … an idiot.
Q: Is there anything specific in this book of which you are particularly proud?
There’s a few parts, but … me being me … a couple stand out. Asking for help in the first place. I’m not known for doing that. Also, when I first met with Elias, that was harrowing for me. I’d been used to a really shitty alpha, a guy who treated his pack with disdain and hurt them for no reason. Elias showed me he wasn’t like that. He helped his people … and it affected me deep down inside. It was quite a tense and humbling moment at the same time. Shit, did I just say that? I must be getting soft … maybe delete that.
Q: Would you like to add anything else?
Well, thanks for taking the time to talk to me, but I’d like to thank Ava for putting up with my BS. Also, there’s so many others who are pretty damn talented in Dark Moon Falls, y’all should check them out. That’s if you want to read about me and my shifter friends … and if people preorder for a measly price of 99c, they’re giving away a ton of free gifts. I mean, you can’t get a better deal than that, can you?
