Gods & Goddess Week: Saranna DeWylde


Welcome to Gods & Goddess Week!

This entire week is dedicated to all those wonderful books that feature Gods & Goddesses as the main characters.  We have great interviews and some awesome giveaways through out the week so make sure to check back each day with Stitch Read Cook and Ramblings from this Chick for all the fun!

Today we have the lovely SARANNA DEWYLDE!!

Saranna DeWylde has always been fascinated by things better left in the dark. She wrote her first story after watching The Exorcist at a slumber party. Since then, she’s published horror, romance and narrative nonfiction. Like all writers, Saranna has held a variety of jobs from an operations supervisor for an airline, to an assistant for a call girl, to a corrections officer. But like Hemingway said, “Once writing has become your major vice and greatest pleasure, only death can stop it.” So she traded in her cuffs for a full-time keyboard. Saranna is a member of RWA and lives in Kansas halfway between prisonville and one of the most haunted towns in the US.

Hello Saranna!  Thank you for taking part in our Gods & Goddess Week!

Thanks so much for having me.

What inspired you to write about Gods & Goddesses?

They did. I heard the stories in my head and they were so loud, I didn’t really have a choice. 

If you could have one power, what would it be and why?

Telekinesis. It seems to be sort of a catch all kind of power. I could fly, move traffic, and never lose my shoes under the couch.

Quick & Easy:

Day or Night?  Day
Love at First Sight or Second Chances? First Sight.
Weres or Vamps?  Weres.
Paperbacks or Ebooks?  Both.
Past, Present or Future?  Present.
Reading or Writing?  Both.
Coffee or Tea?  Both.
Plotter or Panster?  Both.
Reality or Fiction?  Both.
Laptop or Desktop? Laptop.
Angel or Demon?  Demon. Because they still have something to learn.
Authors Choice:  If you could turn Aphrodite’s powers back on her, who would you set her up with? (Any pantheon.)

Now, something for the characters….

What is something no one knows about you and would be surprised to learn?

”I’m not jealous.” ~Hera

What's a day in the life of (character name) consist of?

”Brooding. Kicking gargoyles. Still trying to house train Cerberus. And loving my beautiful wife.” ~Hades

Tell us something we don’t know about your hero/ine?

The cougar label still bothers Nyx, even though her husband is immortal.

A riotous romp through Olympus with goddesses for the 21st century.

When a new goddess moves to Ambrosia Lane, Hera decides she's finally had enough of her philandering husband. She offers herself and the crown of gods to Hades. Hades doesn't want the crown, but he'll take Hera. (Often and twice on Sunday.) He's a heartless bastard--having had Aphrodite rip it out so he'd stop loving Persephone after he set her free. Persephone is scheming to get back to Tartarus with the aid of Thanatos, who trips on his leather trench coat and falls in love with her.

Thanatos' titan mother, Nyx thinks she's past all the drama until she turns up pregnant. Demeter has secrets of her own and the new goddess Abstinence lands in a steaming centaur pile when she falls for the King of the Gods himself whose own dark needs could tear them apart. Come along for the ride as these goddesses take control of their Fate (or so they think) and find their Happily Ever Afters.

  1. Thanks for the fun post and congrats to Saranna on the new release! It sounds like fun! I think that I'd have Aphrodite fall in love with Ares :)

    1. Everyone seems to like Ares. The have a pretty turbulent history together in mythology.

  2. Gods and Goddess week is brilliant! Thanks for sharing another author with us!

  3. Have to agree with Erin on Ares, but since he's my fave... how about Thor ;)

    Thanks for interesting blog.

  4. Argh, I am going with the crowd, Ares. Prolly a bit self centered since I am an Aries... or maybe just long term lust for Mr. Sexy sideburns from the old tv series Zena...

  5. Ares! This one sounds really great! Can't wait to read it. Thanks for the chance.

  6. Ares or Hades for my choice. I love the theme of your books. Don't enter me for the e-book though because I can't read them on this computer.
