Megan, welcome to Dream Weaver Novels on Blogspot. We look forward to learning more about you and your novel Transition. 

Thank you Su for having me, it’s a great pleasure to be here on your Dream Weaver Blog today. 

First, tell us a little about yourself and your book. 

Well, I’ll make it short, because there is a lot to tell.  I am a wife and mother of three daughters and one son, and a grandmother of seven wonderful kids. I spend a lot of time with my family and see some of my children and grandchildren on a daily bases. We have a family owned and operated business, and my daughter run’s the daily operation of the office and brings her 2 ½ year old daughter every day. From my husband to my son, to brothers, son-in-laws and daughters, we all work together as a family. We are a busy family to say the least. Then there is my writing, this is done in my spare time and every day. Whether it’s writing or marketing, it is an everyday process.

It took me 2 ½ years to write and publish my first novel Transition, the first book in The Chimera Hunters Series. It is a young adult, paranormal romance. I have loved every moment and am blessed with a wonderful family that let’s my creativity run amuck.

If your book was made into a movie or TV series, what actors would make up your dream cast? 

This is a little harder, because all the Chimera men are over 6’ tall. But here is my pick based on how I see them:
Develon =   Victor Webster 
Shelby    =  Keira Knightley

Gavin     =   Joe Manganiello  6’5 
Leandro =   Jason Momoa 6’4  (looks great with long hair)
Jen  =   Jessica Alba 
Stephen  =  Chris Hemsworth 6’4 

What websites or resources have you found most helpful on your literary journey? 

Whenever I need information, I turn to my trusted Google pages; it is my top go to site. Another one you can go to for daily writing tips is:

Any advice you’d give to aspiring writers? 

This is my top advice, write… write… write… even if it’s a grocery list. This is a must do every day. And remember, never… ever… give up.

Who are 3 of your favorite traditionally published authors? And tell us about their books. 

Oh goodness, I have so many. But these are some of my top fave’s: 
  • Twilight Saga – by Stephenie Meyer (I have been likened to her many times)
  • Gena Showalter  (Love every one of her novels) AND
  • Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. All my daughters and myself read her Vampire Academy Novels. Loved them all!
I'm  so glad you mentioned Richelle Mead! I absolutely love her Vampire Academy books. I recently tried to re-read them, but the emotion was still too raw, even after over a year, that I couldn't read them. She signed a copy for me at last year's PNWA Conference and wrote back to me when I emailed her. She's very sweet. AND the books are at this very moment being made into a movie. (Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters) They're shooting over in England...even though the Academy is in Montana.
Any self-pubbed authors you’d like to give a shout out? 
There are many self-published authors whose novels are great!  Here are some of my recent favorites: 
Shattered Souls (Souls #1) by Mary Lindsey 

Ixeos (Ixeos Trilogy #1)by Jennings Wright 

Returning Pride (The Pride Series) by Jill Sanders 

And of course:
Dream Weaver (Dream Weaver, #1) by Su Williams

More GREAT Author Sites!

Wordle: Dream Weaver by Su Williams ***Today's Shout Out! READERS! A mixed genre bag of featured best books & eBooks from our finest Indie authors. Take a quick peek: #IndieAP***
Word Fun with Wordle                                       I discovered this fun site called Wordle that creates word clouds from your words. They're fun to put in your blog or on your website. Wordle was created by Jonathan Feinberg and you MUST have Java to make it work. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but my only complaint is that you can't make them bigger or they get blurry; and you can't make them small or you can't read the words. Guess I'll have to play with it bit.
