Pretty in Pink Presents: Author spotlight, giveaway and interview with Theresa M Jones
Happy Monday ladies and gents! Today I have a wonderful spotlight on Theresa M Jones author of the NA Descendant Trilogy and courtesy of the gals over at Girls Heart Books Tours. She has also been kind enough to offer an e-copy of both of her books for a giveaway!
Series: The Descendants Trilogy
By: Theresa M Jones
Publication date: February 2013
Thousands of years after the battle between the angels, when Lucifer was defeated by Michael in the Heavens, the war is still being fought onEarth by the humans who have their Power, the Angel's Power.
Allison Stevens is a 21 year old single mother who gets throwninto the middle of this battle when Damien, the Leader of the Rising, decides to hunt her down and kill her because he fears she is the descendant prophesied to save the world.
David, a member of the Order, takes Allison under his wing in order to show her the ropes, and hopefully groom her into being the one they have been waiting for. The only problem is that they start to grow more attached than a teacher/student relationship should allow.
But that isn't all. Damien wants to open the Seven Seals and bring about the apocalypse and it's up to Allison to not only save herself and her family, but save the worls, all while trying to keep her heart from breaking.
No problem... right?
POWER is the first book in a New Adult (Mature YA) Paranormal Romance Trilogy and is the debut novel for author Theresa M Jones.

Series: The Descendant Trilogy
By: Theresa M Jones
Expected Publication Date: April 29, 2013
Allison now understands who she is and where she comes from, but will it be enough to save the world? She went through a dangerous journey, dragging her young daughter along for the ride, in an attempt to stop the evil Rising Leader, Damien, from opening the Seven Seals and bringing about the Apocalypse.
But she hasn't succeeded yet. The Rising still thrives and Lilith has made it her mission to open the remaining Seals so that she and her minions can rule the Earth.
David and Allison hope that love can conquer all, but in reality, love is never enough. Will they, along with the rest of the gang back at the Compound, be able to stop the Rising?
And where is the Descendant that is prophesied to save them all?

Sounds like a really interesting series! Here's a little more from the fabulous Theresa M Jones herself on writing, her guilty pleasure, and the all important question, pepsi or coke!
1. First off, pepsi or coke? Answer wisely! lol
2. What inspires your writing?
Many things!! Other books, my children, my life.
3. Do you have a routine or any quirks that you HAVE to do before you can write?
No. Well, I HAVE to have my kids taken care of. I cant write with my kids around, so they either have to be in school, or in bed, before I can write at all.
4. What are your guiltypleasures?
Chocolate for sure. And Sangria, Im a fruity wind kinda gal.
5. How do you handle rejection and/or bad reviews?
Well, so far I havent received a negative review (Knock on wood and Keep your fingers crossed for me) But, before I self-published, I did Query agents, and obviously was rejected... and in that situation, I decided it just wasnt meant to be yet. I know that I can only go up from here!! :)
6. Any words of advice for aspiring writers?
Write!! Make time to write. Write when you dont even know what to write about!
Also... what really works for me is making an outline (sometimes 2 or 3 outlines) before I even start writing a book. That may help.
7. If you could live in any period of time when would it be and why?
Here and now. I dont have the urge to do any kind of manual labor like they used to. I have no urge to live without air conditioning or radio. I rarely wear dresses and would hate to wear them all day. I would never be ok with being considered less than a man merely because I'm a woman. So... I like this time.
8. What is coming up next for you?
Well, I'm working on the final book in The Descendant Trilogy, which should be out late this year. AND I've also started a new YA series about Fairies.
9. If you could live anywhere in the world where would that be and why?
I love where I live. Proud to be an American and all that. Plus I live in Texas, and it's almost like Heaven on Earth (except in the summers when your skin practically melts off your body) I would love to visit Italy and Ireland though!!
10. Any last thoughts, words of wisdom etc you would like to share?
Thank you! Thank you for taking the time to interview me. And thank you to your readers who took the time to read this interview!!! I hope everyone enjoys my books! :)
