Bringing Out The Naughty Side in You Q&A with Gena Showalter

Tell us about your current release.

Wicked Nights is the story of the cold as ice Zacharel, the new leader of the Army of Disgrace—heavenly warriors so bad they are in danger of falling from grace—and Annabelle, a human who has spent the last four years locked inside an institution for the criminally insane (for a crime she didn’t commit). He doesn’t have time for a distraction, but Annabelle fascinates him in a way nothing else ever has. Zacharel decides he wants her—but then, so does the demon chasing her. The two alpha warriors will have to fight it out, good against evil.

Tell us about your next release.

Up next is Alice in Zombieland, the first in the White Rabbit Chronicles series, featuring a teenage girl who loses her entire family in a car crash and wakes up to a world of zombies and zombie slaying—and a bad boy who will either save her or ruin her. (September 25th) In November, #1 New York Times sensation PC Cast and I have a duology called After Moonrise, and I’m beyond excited! After that is Last Kiss Goodnight, the first in the Otherworld Assassin novels, and a spin-off of my Alien Huntress books. A twisted menagerie exists, and otherworlders are the main attraction. Any time this zoo is about to be shut down, it vanishes and reappears somewhere else. When Solo’s latest mission is compromised, he wakes up in a cage, the newest “animal” on display. Vika is his new handler—as well as the zoo owner’s deaf daughter, and she’s been tasked with Solo’s care and feeding.

Who is your favorite author?

I am LOVING Roxanne St. Claire. She writes thrilling romantic suspense, heart-wrenching contemporary romances, and now she will be conquering the young adult world with an AMAZING novel called If You Wish. Seriously, there is nothing this talented star cannot do!

When in the day/night do you write?

How long per day? I like to get started early in the morning, and I’ll write until I’ve finished the desired word count for the day (usually a chapter for the rough draft or around 50 – 100 pages of an edit) Some days take longer than others :o)
