Author Interview: Debbie Davies, author of Any Love But Mine

Hey guys!

Today I had the privilege to interview Debbie Davies, author of Any Love But Mine. Here's a little info about the book:
Look but don't touch has never been more true... 
The gods forbade her to love, but love is a powerful force. Acacia has been created purely for Eros' pleasure but discovers within moments of being summoned into his presence that he has no interest in her whatsoever. Rejected, she is banished to Earth to serve as Eros' minion with the task of promoting the blissful state of love among all those around her, a state she must never indulge in with a human being herself on pain of immediate destruction. And then comes Josh, someone whose power of attraction over Acacia is so intense she will find it utterly impossible to resist him. But is he human? Is he a god? Or is he a trick of the gods? And what would happen should they kiss? ~ Courtesy of Goodreads
Sounds interesting, right? Now let's let Debbie tell us a little more about herself and her awesome book!

Any Love But Mine is based on Greek Mythology. What is your favorite Greek myth and why?

My favourite myth is the one that inspired me to write the book and that is the myth of Eros and Psyche. Its my favourite because underneath everything that happens to them its just so romantic!

If I was to meet Acacia in real life, what should I expect? Is she wild and carefree, like the gods, or quieter and more subdued?

Acacia is wild and adventurous but she isn't carefree, she can't be with how many people are trying to control her life and with the weight of an impending war between the worlds resting on her decisions.

Acacia has been forbidden to love, yet she still falls for Josh. In your own opinion, what is it about love that would make someone like Acacia risk her own certain destruction for it?

I think Acacia is willingly to risk it all for Josh because she feels some deep embedded attraction and need to be with him but also she has been made to give this gift of love to so many that she wants to take some of it for herself - she is a little bit selfish. Also she hates the life she has, she was never wanted by Eros so she doesn't see why she should do as she is told just to please him.

If you could pick your dream cast for Any Love But Mine, who would you choose?

My friend and I have done this quite often and here are the ones we can pick;

Acacia - I've never been able to pick anyone!!!!!

Allana - Zooey Deschanel

Hercules - Kellan Lutz

Hades - Jared Leto

While writing Any Love But Mine, we're there any major changes in the story from first draft to finished copy? Or did you pretty much know how it was going to turn out from the get go?

Well its name changed from 'All love leads to war' to 'Untouched' to 'Forbidden to love' to what it is now 'Any love but mine'. The story also changed it began as a sort of light hearted cupids confessions type of diary and I decided against that and created The Erosians and the story kind of told itself from there.

Thanks so much for talking to us today, Debbie. And I totally love your cast choices for your characters! I'd totally watch that movie :)
