Author Interview: Inger Iversen, author of Few Are Angels

Today, we have the pleasure of talking to Inger Iversen, author of Few Are Angels. Here's a synopsis of her book:

After a fatal hit and run accident, Ella Monroe fears that she’s lost more than her beloved parents. Horrifying visions of a past life and a disturbing voice in her head have psychiatric professionals convinced that she’s lost her sanity as well. But when Kale--a dark and handsome stranger with a mysterious past--reveals the true meaning of her visions and the tremendous power she wields through them, Ella must come to terms with the devastating truths of her own past, while eluding an ancient Dark Prince who seeks to control not only her future, but all of mankind’s, by means of abilities that Ella is only beginning to understand.

Enter the shrouded world of an age old battle between an ancient race known as the Immortals and their bitter enemy Laurent, the so-called Dark Prince, who commands an army of half-breed vampires known as Chorý. Both sides have been desperately searching for the prophesied emergence of the Arc, a clairvoyant with unparalleled power to recall the past and a soothsayer with clear vision into the future.

The Council of Immortals has sworn to protect the Arc, whom they have identified as young Ella Monroe, a college freshman from Virginia living quietly and unaware of her powers or her past. But a renegade Chorý has other plans for the protection of a girl he has loved through the ages. Can Kale convince Ella of who she is, what she is destined to become, and what he once meant to her? Is he truly the best protector to shield the world from the devastating misuse of her powers that Laurent is bent on controlling? Or will the forbidden love they share and Kale’s cursed condition as a retched and hated Chorý be used against them both?

This paranormal romance told from the heroine’s perspective builds in intensity and intrigue to a finale you won’t see coming. Heart pounding action mixed with heartwarming friendships and heartbreaking romance will leave you breathless and begging for more. ~ Courtesy of Goodreads

Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Kristen Anne Inger Iversen and I am from Virginia Beach, Virginia where the weather exercises its right to change its mind frequently—no matter the season! When I decided to publish I used the named Inger Iversen because you’d be surprised at how many Kristen Iversens there are out there LOL. I love to play Call of Duty, Final Fantasy and I am totally clueless about what a hashtag means in reference to Twitter.

How'd you come up with the idea for Few Are Angels?

Few Are Angels was a dream that took over my reality. During work I would daydream about the characters and the world that I would create for them. I was in the middle of writing another novel called DreamWalkers, but I put it aside in order to start FAA.

What was your favorite thing about writing Few Are Angels?

My favorite part was writing the interactions between Kale and Ella. As well as Mia and her snarky attitude!

What do you think the hardest part of being a writer is?

The hardest part about writing for me is finding the time to write as well as spend time with my friends and family. I often stay up very late writing and then sleep all day long. I call it my “Hermit Mode” Usually, if that is my Facebook status everyone pretty much leaves me alone, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t hear it later. I don’t plan to write, I just write when the moment hits me and then I don’t stop until it’s gone.

What advice would you give to aspiring authors out there?

Stop trying to be the next big thing and be yourself. Now that authors are able to use Amazon and Barnes and Noble to self-publish the only person you have to impress is the reader and not some publishing mogul. The readers are now in control and they are looking for something different while publishers and agents are looking for that cookie cutter book that they already know will sell. The readers have placed people like Amanda Hocking in millionaire status when before she was turned down by more than ten different publishing houses! What does that tell you? Well, it told me that there was a power shift and we the READERS and WRITERS have more control. Most if not all writers are avid readers, so write about what you would want to read about.

Fantastic advice for everyone who loves to read and write! Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to us, Kristen!
