Author Interview - Awaken by B.L. Callaghan #authorinterview #urbanfantasy #supernatural

Are you currently binge watching anything on Netflix or Hulu ? What keeps you glued to the screen?

I’m doing a re-watch of The Walking Dead with my husband right now! He hasn’t seen it, so I’m enjoying his reactions! Also, there is always Paw Patrol, or Bluey on in my house – the kids can’t get enough of them!

A good storyline, with lots of twists and interesting characters and scenery keep me glued to the screen – the stranger, the better!

Do you prefer movies or TV series?

I love them both! As long as they are detailed, engaging and fun then I’m in!

When it comes to reading do you prefer standalones or series?

I prefer series – I love getting lost in the plot and worlds created in them. I feel there is more detail in series’, and I can pretend that the world in them is real, that the characters are family! My favorite series is 27 books and counting! Books that are part of a series tend to stick with me longer than standalones. Don’t get me wrong, standalones are great too – but I feel that they have to be absolutely incredible to stand out among the series!

Do you prefer to start new book series when the first book is released or do you want for a several books in the series to be released so you can binge read?

I’m super impatient, so I read them as they come out! But I tend to re-read the older ones to keep the plot and characters fresh.

What are some of your hobbies, interests or guilty pleasures (other than reading and writing)?

I crochet, draw, make jewellery, candles, and soaps. And I’m music obsessed!

What's your guilty “nerd” pleasure (ex: Star Wars movies, ComicCons, Cosplay)?

Star wars for sure! Total classic movies, you can’t go wrong!

 When I was younger, a group of friends and I would re-enact our favorite movies/books too!

Have you ever peeked at the ending of a book?

Yes! And it was a horrible idea! Now, I keep myself in check as to not ruin the surprise!

A hidden world readying for war. A woman destined to tip the balance. But how do you choose a side, when everybody lies?

Sapphira Dawn was told she was the new Goddess Incarnate, the most powerful being on Earth.

At nineteen, she didn’t feel powerful – she felt betrayed and angry.

Suddenly thrust into a world that she knows nothing about, a world where magic and monsters actually exist, Sapphira races to learn all she can about her magic.

And to find her place in this dangerous new world.

Some of the monsters want to use her, the others just want her dead.

But can she gain the knowledge needed to stop an impending war before it spills into the human realm she once called home?
