Interview with Indie Books Blog

The Blood Moon of Winter - Courtney Conant

Born and raised in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Courtney Conant began writing at a very young age and was very passionate about it. Since moving to Arizona at age 16, she took a long break from it as she seemed to have hit a very long period of writer's block. She began writing again in 2008, due to finding NaNoWriMo which is an amazing contest/challenge for anyone needing that extra motivation. Since then, she has completed her first novel and has started work on the sequel.
eBook Description:
Upon the discovery that the world in her dreams is actually real, Lilyana is torn by indecision. She is the only one who can save the dying land of Makayra. Yet, to do so, she must leave all she has ever known. She must choose whether her new found love is enough to keep her from performing a duty that has been thrust upon her.
Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
It is a unique tale, bringing in alternate realities and a blend of modern times mixed with ancient mythology.
Q: Why did you go indie?
After being told by many publishers and agents that the concept of my book was sound and interesting but not long enough for them, I decided to go my own way. There was no way to lengthen the story without changing it in an integral way.
Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Terry Brooks and Charles De Lint are my two favorites when it comes to Paranormal/Urban Fantasy writers.
