Q & A With The Author, Melissa E. Beckwith:

Q: Your writing is very descriptive and flowing. Who were some authors that inspired your work?
A: There have been many throughout the years, to be sure. It was after reading Diana Gabaldon and her Outlander series that I really started to get serious about writing. Then I discovered my love for fantasy and started to read everything from Robin Hobb and Jennifer Roberson. I’m also captivated by Juliet Marillier, Katherine Hurley, Jeff Wheeler and George R. R. Martin, of course.  Historical fantasy is also another genre that I love, especially writers like Naomi Novik and Libbie Hawker.

Q: How long did it take you to write The Empress of Ventra?
A: Well, the idea for the Sword of Rhiannon series has been rolling around in my head for probably twenty years. Then I studied the craft of writing for many years. So the writing, editing and learning process has been going on over the last sixteen years, I’d say.

Q: What kind of readers do you think your book will appeal to?
A: I think anyone that loves a good epic fantasy story with some romance, sword and sorcery, myth and legends and fairy tale stuff with some time travel thrown in will love The Empress of Ventra.

Q: What is the name of the next book in the series and when will that be out?
A: The next book in the series is called “The War of the Gypsy” and it will be out in February of 2017.

Q: Where can people find you on the internet?
A: People can go to MelissaEBeckwith.com and find out more about me and my books and even sign up for my email list to receive exclusive offers and free books. I’m also on Twitter @M_E_Beckwith, on Facebook @AuthorMelissaEBeckwith, and Melissa E Beckwith on Goodreads. Come find me!
