Bookanista Interview with Sandra Almazan

HAPPY THURSDAY everyone! Welcome to another edition of Bookanista Thursday. I am so EXCITED to have Author Sandra Almazan with me today. But before I bring her interview, here's what the rest of the Bookanista's are up to:

Christine Fonseca  interviews author Sandra Almazan
Stasia Ward Kehoe is spellbound by ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD & GIRL OF NIGHTMARES
Jessica Love falls for UNBREAK MY HEART
LiLa Roecker swoons over STORYBOUND
Megan Miranda is giddy for GILT
Debra Driza celebrates STARTERS

And now, my special Bookanista interview with Sandra. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Sandra over the years as blogging buddies - and I am so thrilled to see her successes over the years. Take it away Sandra: 

About the Book:
  • Give me the blurb for the book in 140 characters or less:   A scientist with family issues must travel to another universe and decide if she should clone her great-grandfather, a famous musician.

  • Do you have a fav character and why?  From this book, it would have to be the main character, Joanna. She's a scientist with an attitude.
  • What do you hope readers will get from your book?  I hope they enjoy it, of course, but I also hope they learn to appreciate science and the importance of following your passions.
About the Author:
  • What inspires you?   I can get inspiration from anything--my favorite group (the Beatles), everyday occurances, other stories, even the mail.
  • Hardest aspect of writing? Best?  As a pantser, the hardest part of writing is revising and working with critique. The best part of writing is seeing plotlines coming together at the climax and finishing the story.
  • Who is your writing hero?   Patricia McKillip. I love her poetic style and her ability to write so many unique stories in different worlds.
  • Randomness:
o   Sweet or salty? Sweet!
o   Beach or mountains? Mountains.
o   Online or in person? Online.
o   Ebook or print? Ebook.
 About the Future:
  • What’s next for you?  I'm currently preparing a paper version of Lyon's Legacy, working on the sequel, and finishing the first draft of a fantasy novel.
  • One outrageous goal for the future?  I'd love to own autographs from all four Beatles. 
WOO HOO!!! Thanks Sandra for letting us get to know you better! You can find Sandra online on her blog. Her book, Lyons Legacy, can be found on Amazon.

What's in your TBR pile right now?


  1. Thanks for having me, Christine!

  2. What a neat sounding book and concept! I kind of wish someone would clone me sometimes. *looks at pile of half-packed boxes* *sighs*

    Great interview Sandra!

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
