Author Interview: Sara Daniell

4:20 PM


Do you like romance, magic, humor, and a hot prince with a sexy smile?  Yes please!  If you also answered yes then this is a book you won't want to miss!


Meet Sara, author of Visions (Holly Nather Trilogy #1).   We met on bookblogs.ning.com and  I was instantly curious about her debut book that she self published.  After reading Visions in only two days, I am excited to recommend her book to you!  Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Sara so you could get to know a little more about the author behind this exciting new trilogy.


Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

You’re blog is awesome and your reviews are great. Thank YOU for taking the time to read the first book to my Trilogy.  It means the world to me. Anyway, I am a 26 year old mother of 2 girls, spoiled wife for almost 9 years, self-published author, teacher, currently in college, saved by grace, sarcastic (extremely), I love to laugh, and I hate fighting unless it is for something I believe in. Writing is my passion even if people hate what I right.


What book has influenced your life the most? 
I would not be where I am today if I had not read the truths in the Bible.  I call it my handbook for life. 



What book are you reading now?
I am currently reading Existence by Abbi Glines.  So far it’s great. I saw this book on your blog and it caught my attention. I’m a sucker for good vampire books. 


I can't wait to read that one too.  As a self-published author, do you have any advice for aspiring authors?  What was the hardest part of self publishing?
Advice for aspiring authors…..oh there is so much! Be proud of your work, even if others hate it.  Don’t get upset when people don’t like your work.  It hurts and sucks, but remember that there will be people out there who do enjoy it. Take all critisim, good and bad, to help you grow as a writer. 

The hardest part of self publishing for me was to actually publish my work.  I wasn’t confident in myself.  I was confident in my work, but not in me.  I didn’t think I could take the criticism.  But then, one day, I decided to go for it.  Good or bad, it didn’t matter.  Bottom line, I love to write and want to share it with anyone and everyone who will take the time to read it.

What was your inspiration behind the character Luke, the magical prince?
Mysterious guys rock.  Luke is mysterious and has many secrets that you will find out about later.  I wanted Luke to be unpredictable but a little predictable at the same time.  I wanted to create a character that would hold the readers attention and draw them in.  It was important to me that the reader had no problem seeing why Holly fell for him.  


Feel free to leave questions or comments for Sara and I'm sure she'd be glad to answer them.


In your story some of your characters have magical abilities.  If you had magic what would you do with it?
My answer to this would change daily.  Today, I would use it to complete every bit of my school work.  I have so much homework that I feel like I’m sinking.  I may need floaties.


You're a teacher, a mom, a wife, writing a trilogy, and going to school?  You're superwoman!
Do you have a favorite part of quote from Visions?
This part is my favorite part and you will wonder why, but I will explain!

"shrugging my shoulders I say, “No not really.  I honestly don’t know why you wanted to meet me so badly.  I’m really not that interesting.” I’m really not.  I mean, I don’t even know what I want to major in.  I’m so lame. Plus, I have really dirty shoes."

I love this part.  Holly has a guy who is extremely attractive and interested in her, yet she still notices her dirty shoes. She doesn’t try to be someone fake, she is herself. I love how Holly isn’t all over this guy just because he is cute and likes her. Instead she is like "who gives a flip you like me and are borderline stalking me, I still think I’m boring, have dirty shoes and think you are weird."

You are probably thinking, of all the things in the book, that is your favorite part? Yes it is. 

I liked that part too!  Holly was really down to earth and relate-able.  I was also glad that the characters didn't lock eyes and instantly fall in love like most books seem to do these days.  
I’m anxious to find out what happens next! When can we expect book #2 in the Holly Nather Series?
I am anxious for you to find out what happens next too!  Things get VERY crazy for Holly.  Big secrets are revealed.  If you think her life got crazy in the first book, just wait. You can read a very short sneak peak to Secrets (book #2) on my blog.  http://saradaniell.blogspot.com

When is it coming out? April, but there is no set date.  I will keep everyone updated on my blog and Facebook page.
