Taige Crenshaw VBT ~ Day 5

Taige is here today with a short interview. Welcome to Romance Book Craze Taige!

Tell us your latest news?

I had 2 release last month. Silken Inferno  and Dark Callings which are book 2 and 3 in my Phoenix Intelligence Agency series.
I’m also hard at work with books in my various series. I have some more releases later this year.

When and why did you begin writing?

I’ve been making up stories from time I was a child. I started writing from time I was a child. I used to write fairytales as a kid. :) I used to write then get the family to sit and listen to me.  And yes I remember my first story I wrote it was a story of a princess saving a silly prince. {Grin} Even then my heroine’s were butt kicking and saving along with hero. Since then I’ve keep writing because I have too. The stories fill my head and I have to tell them.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

Hmmmm…from the first story I told when I was a child. I wanted to have people swept  up in my story and wanting to come along on a journey with me. My family was my first readers and then eventually my friends. Now I write and share to a wider set of readers. Each time I am able to share a story I am blessed. Reading is an adventure and I love being able to give someone that journey.

What inspired you to write your first book?

I wanted to make up my own fairytales.

Do you have a specific writing style?

Nope I don’t have a specific writing style. I just write what my characters tell me. They control the story and how it unfolds.

How did you come up with the title?

The title Dark Callings is multilayered. It comes from what the type of being a hero is - a Shadower. He walks in the shadows and they call to him. Also the other layer of the title of about the couple of Lennox - my hero- and Harmony - my heroine-who have a destiny that is intertwined. They have a calling to each other that is destined and combined in the shadows. There is a beauty to the shadows where dark plays with light mixing then fading until there is only... Dark Callings.  

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Dark Callings has a combination of underlying messages. Lennox is a man who thinks because of the being he is, he does not dare hope for the woman who he wants.  Lennox is a Shadower - a race of beings who are feared and other beings don’t trust them. Harmony is a woman who is determined enough to get beyond the defenses of a stubborn man. She doesn’t care about what others think or that Lennox himself isn’t sure if he can trust himself. There is a darkness in him and Lennox doesn’t want it to affect her. But Harmony sees the good in him even if Lennox does not. He underestimates her and she gets beyond his defenses.

Dark Callings is about belief in someone other than yourself, going out on faith and letting go to let someone else in to help you carry your burdens. Most importantly, the main underlying message in Dark Callings is about the power of love.  

In closing, I want to thank you for letting me guest and talk about my book.  Thanks to the readers for coming by.

When faced with your destined bond you either accept or face the consequences.

Harmony Davis knows what she wants. No one, even the man himself will stand in her way. Lennox might think it is best to not pursue their attraction but she has foreseen that she cannot be without him. Now she must convince this stubborn man who would rather be alone in the shadows than face their combined destinies. She has a plan but he is not cooperating. Subtlety goes out the window and she confronts him giving him no retreat from what must be.

Lennox S’chaech longs for her touch. Enjoys her wonderful spirit and giving nature yet he knows he cannot taint her with his darkness. He hadn’t counted on Harmony’s stubbornness. She finds ways to intertwine their lives so he has no escape. Although if he would admit it he wasn’t fighting to hard to get away. But he will not take that final step and meld them in that irreversible way.

When resistance meets determination it will melt under a Dark Callings.

  5. Congrats on your book! Sounds so good! And wonderful interview. I love heros that are somewhat damaged. The heroine sweeps in and heals him. This sounds like a fascinating book! I love it when the book hints at whats to come but theres still a bit of mystery! I cant wait to see what Lennoxs character holds!! Thank you!

  6. Congrats on your release. You are a new to me author but DARK CALLINGS sounds really good. I love how the story sounds very complex, layered. And how you said that you just write what the characters tell you to :)
