The Next Best Thing

dragonfated1. What is your working title of your book (or story)?

Stealing Hope A Dragon’s Fated Heart

2. Where did the idea come from for these books?

I’ve been fascinated with what would happen in a post apocalyptic world, especially one where dragons come to life.

3. What genre do your books fall under?

My series falls under erotic paranormal romance, for the main part, myths & legends, some might even say erotica.

4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Goodness. I think the Parker Young would make a wonderful Ari, my dragon hero. Emma Watson would make a wonderful Hope.

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Technology is but a distant memory, a legend. Another legend awakens on an erotic hunt, hungry for the human fated to complete this dragon’s soul.

6. Will your book(s) be self-published or represented by an agency?

Stealing Hope is contracted by Ardent Books.

7.  How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Nine months! I started it in November 2013 during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and didn’t finish it until July of 2014. I’m not sure I would say it was the first draft as every time I opened it up after November was over, I was redrafting as I added.

8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I’m not sure, to be honest. It mixes up and crosses genres, not a straight apocalyptic novel, nor yet a straight shifter novel.

9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?

My imagination just blooms with dragons. Every dragon shifter book I’ve read and all the disaster and apocalypse movies I’ve seen have contributed.

Beverly Ovalle APBio:

Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.

Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.

A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of twenty five years along the way for her own romance. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.
