Contest & Interview with Romance Author Ami Blackwelder by Gerri Brousseau

Nights of Passion is very excited to have Ami Blackwelder
with us today.  Welcome Ami.  Please tell us about your current release.

Invasion of 2020 is the first book in the Shifter Evolutions saga: books 1-6.  Five books are out now!   The last book in the series will be out in 2012.  The series was actually written so the reader begins with Shifters of 2040 and then decides to read the past or the future.  So, we see the first book came out next to last.  However, the series may also be read in chronological order.

Invasion lets the reader understand how the alien-shifters came to Earth, their intentions, and why the humans reacted as they did.  We get to learn more about Uri, Dr. Croon, and of course Raul and Marn.  We find out what makes them all tick.  In the second book SCM of 2030, we also get to dive more into Raul’s intentions and personality and really discover what made him a madman.

How long have you been writing and what inspired you to become a writer?

I’ve been writing since I could pick up a pencil.  It is in my blood.

Who are some authors you admire?  And why?

I admire self-published and indie authors like Amanda Hocking, Imogen Rose, Michael Sullivan, Ali Mac, Jim Bernheimer, Rhianna Frater, Katie Salidas and of course, myself.  Because they took their dreams and turned them into success stories …even without traditional publishing. And not because we are bad writers, but because we are ahead of the standard markets.

You have a very interesting blog.  I couldn’t help but notice your pictures of
Shifters 2040, which were very interesting.  Is this a graphic novel?  Is it more difficult to write this type of novel versus a straight forward novel?

They are actually novels, but I do have one graphic novella called Rain. Yes, it is different.  You have to incorporate illustrations and write more in comic book style, in my opinion anyway.

Are your novels Shifters 2040, Hunted 2060 and The Day The Flowers Died a series?  Can you expound on your story line?

The Day the Flowers Died is an historical romance novel set in 1930 Munich, Germany before the outbreak of WWII.  The Shifter Evolution series comprises: Invasion 2020, SCM 20203, Shifters 2040, Hybrids 2050, Hunted 2060, and Revolution 2060.  The year is also the giveaway for the order the read the books.

What are your plans for future works?  What are you currently working on?

I am currently working on The Mers, a mermaid dystopian and Midnight, a vampire dystopian.

Ami will be giving a free ebook copy of Invasion of 2020 to one lucky winner.  In order to win, please tell us why you really must have one of her books.  This contest will end on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011 at midnight Eastern Time, so please get your comments in.

Thank you, Ami, for joining us today on Nights of Passion.  For more information about Ami and her works by visiting her blog

    OMG! I LOVE the combination of Aliens and Shifters. My favorite genre. I want all of these books! I have been unemployed for over 2 years now and one of the only ways to get more books is to enter contests. I have a very tight budget and way too many books on my wish list to buy them all. I have put the shifter evolution saga at the top of my wish list. I even signed up on goodreads for a chance to get one. As soon as my next unemployment check comes, I can buy the first one. I allow myself to buy 1 ebook a month if my other obligations are taken care of. This month, my obligations are covered so I can get a book. Woohoo! So I will get Invasion 2020 if I don’t win it.

    Thank you for the chance to win. Keep writing this kind of book. I Love em.

    My only (perfectly serious) question is whether she did read Why GOD WHY sporking of her crack induced (I have to assume) “novel” Rain? I am reading it right now and oh my god. I thought she was poor deluded teenager, but apparently it was created by woman grown? I am not by nature a cruel person, but that book is insane! Like, why?
