Q/A with Larissa Ione

Larissa Ione Q&A

Krystle and I are a part of a Paranormal Romance group on Goodreads, and our board leaders worked ever so hard to get ahold of Ms.Ione for us! We are deeply grateful, and cannot wait! Ione will be answering our questions at approximately 7:00 pm tonight. I will update this article as soon as our answers are given! Our questions are as followed:

Sky: Hi there Ms.Ione! I’ve been looking forward to this for a while, it’s an honor to be able to chat with such a talented lady as yourself =) I only had one question today, a silly one. I love cuddling up in bed and reading, and most often my hubby is lying next to me, he doesn’t read at all, so I’ll be playful and read to him chapters from different books. I love to see his reaction to the things I’ve read him from this genre! I guess he never expects something like that could be “read”, rather than be “watched” haha
I guess I just wonder, with so many WELL described erotica scenes, and of, well, male member lengths, has your husband ever read or heard any chapters, scenes and such from your novels, and how does he react? Great approval on his side I hope =D

Larrisa: “Ha! My husband actually reads all of my books. He totally approves. Except he’s convinced that Wraith is based on him. *rolls eyes*

Sky: Larissa, that is wonderful news! Having a hubby that supports your writing is fantastic. That’s awesome he even see’s himself in your characters, whether he’s right or not lolol

Krystle: “I actually read “Pleasure Unbound” when I took my first plane ride (by myself), so you pretty much kept my mind at ease during that adventure. So a big THANKS for that 🙂 Like you I am a huge animal lover, which is why I groom dogs for a living and I love all of the pictures you put up on Facebook of your king shepherd “Hexe”. She’s gorgeous and seems to love life!

1. Do you ever dream up ideas for your books, then wake up and write those ideas down? When I read a book and really get into it I’ll dream about it for a few nights and sometimes wake up really emotional because it was so real.
2. With your dogs name being “hexe” which clearly goes with the style of your writing, are you ever going to use it any of your books as a character name?

Larissa:
 I never wake up from dreams and write anything down. I should, but I don’t. I always hope that someday I’ll finally be smart enough to do that!
No Hexe characters in the near future, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be! *g*

The Mind Readers

So, sometimes I love to browse the freebies on Amazon Kindle, and stumble upon these little gems.
This is the first book in an Indie series, narrated in first person, and great for all YA readers of all ages. Cameron Winters is perfect heroine, who has the ability to read minds. In avoidance to expose Cameron’s abilities and to not attract attention from a private investigation that’s been hunting her kind for years, her grandmother moves them around constantly, causing Cam to never really have any friends. She was doing well in a small quiet town, till strange things began happening…A handsome boy just like her shows up in town and persuades her to come with him to a training facility for children owned by a wealthy man who instructs people just like them, to use their powers for good and protection.

This novel flows at a mysterious, quick and thrilling pace, leaving the reader to believe one thing but then given a turn when least expected. This author is a brilliant!

I would have loved to have built a relationship with certain few other characters that are mentioned and have important parts in the first novel; because I feel they are very promising in the rest of the series. And the ending was just astounding. I was predicting a cliffhanger in some way, but the cliffhanger we get, I am almost positive you won’t see it coming either!

My feelings on The Mind Readers: This book was cute and pleasing at the start. As the book went on, I became curious, the author tries to throw off the reader and make us reconsider who we’re rooting for the entire book. Last two chapters…BOOM! *jaw drop* A bitter-sweet cliffhanger.
Definitely not a cliché YA reader, what I appreciate about this novel too, is that it isn’t just about the romance , barely at all. It focuses on a strong heroine who fights for good, and nothing else.
