Olivia Hardin – Witch Way Bends

What is your most recent book? Tell us a bit about it.

Witch Way Bends is the first book in the Bend-Bite-Shift Trilogy. Devan Stowe has only one thing on her mind when she teams up with Kent Crosby and his associates—putting an end to her father’s child trafficking business. Her determination takes her on a journey to discover her true strength and the… one man she was destined to love. In his arms, she’ll learn the meaning of trust, honor, and courage. Devan will unlock an amazing gift that will free her from her past and open up a future full of magic, faeries and more things than she ever imagined possible.

Tell us something about yourself.

Probably the first thing I tell people is that I’m a Texas girl, born and raised.My penchant for writing was born from strange dreams I’ve had since I was young – I call them character dreams.They’re almost like I’m directing a movie because in them I’m not any one person or even myself… I’m every one.I became so enchanted with these dream-tales that I had to start putting them on paper.

How did you choose the title for your book?

I actually used Google to come up with this title (I use Google for just about everything!) I wanted a phrase that would play on the word “bend” because it’s used to describe a specific power that’s important in the book. I think I may have happened to come across an article discussing the direction something was bending and it just popped in my head – which way bends… witch way bends!

Are you working on your next book? What can you tell us about it?

My next book will be the second in the trilogy, Bitten Shame.This one will pick up where the last one stopped, but it will turn its focus to Devan’s best friend Jill and how she becomes a vampire. I’m also working on a short story that will appear in an anthology titled Cupid Painted Blind.My short is connected to the trilogy too and is about Kent’s best friend Langston. I’m really proud to be a part of that book alongside these fabulous authors:Liz Schulte, Lisa Rayns, C.G. Powell, Cait Lavender and Stephanie Nelson.

What is the best advice you could give other writers about writing or publishing?

If you want to write, write. If it’s a part of you, then that’s a beautiful thing. Don’t let yourself be discouraged and don’t let yourself focus on numbers and sales. Those aren’t the measures of success. The courage to put your thoughts and dreams out there for others to read is the true accomplishment.

Who is the perfect reader for your book?
My books are definitely adult books in that there is some violence, strong subject matter and language.That said, I’m in my mid-thirties and so are my characters for the most part.I’ve had readers comment about how refreshing that is.Also, I’ve been very surprised to find that a few guys have read and enjoyed the book even though it’s heavy on the romance.

Where can readers learn more about you and your book?
