Today I welcome to my blog the Book Tour of:-
The Wolf Moon
(Wolfmoon Trilogy Book 3)
By Nikki Broadwell
It is close to the winter solstice when Maeve Lewin’s simple trip to Scotland to re-unite with her mother throws her headlong into a dangerous world.
A prophecy written centuries before seems to describe her as ‘the one’, and despite Maeve’s insistence that this couldn’t possibly be true, her mother and grandmother both agree.
What Maeve doesn’t know is that her boyfriend is part of her destiny, mentioned in the ancient text as ‘the one of noble birth who will stand by her side’. But Harold’s only plan is to join Maeve Scotland for the New Year before the two of them fly home to the States.
The night of the winter solstice brings Maeve face to face with a terrifying reality, but it's Harold’s arrival that forces her to come to terms with the truth. He seems to have lived in this parallel world before and his part in future events has been sealed as surely as hers.
With dark forces hunting her relentlessly and confronted with a fate she didn’t choose, Maeve must come to terms with her future and somehow find the strength to fulfill the perilous task set before her.

Are you a full time author or do you have another job aswell and if so how do either or these fit in with writing time?
*I’m a full time writer without a day job, and I am thankful for that!
Do you write on your novel daily or do you try to have days off?
*I usually write daily but there are days when other things get in the way AND I need a day off to regenerate!
Do you go back to published books and want to change them in any way?
What do you think is the most effective marketing is for your books?
*This is a challenge and I’m still working on it—for my paperbacks I think doing readings and placing them in genre similar bookstores is good—but of course that isn’t like selling 1000 kindles—still working on how to get my readers connected with my books!
If you have a ‘baddy’ in your book, can you tell us a little about this character?
*Hope this won’t be offensive to your readers but…he’s a priest gone bad with a sorceress mother!
Is there any romance in your story and if so can you tell us a little about this?
*There is a ton of romance in my book! The protagonist and her boyfriend find themselves confronted w/ a bigger than life predicament and become separated in the Otherworld…there is also a sort of romance between the antagonist (priest) and a woman who comes to the otherworld to help Maeve (protagonist) this one gets a bit dicey though…
If you have to write any fighting scenes, what are your best tips of how you create them?
*My husband helped with the fighting scenes—words to use like sabotage and subterfuge and ways of holding a sword…
Do you ever write sad scenes and do you feel the sadness as you write it?
*Yes I do write them and yes I sometimes tear up!
Did you write as a child or did you come into your talent as an adult?
*I wrote as a child and then wrote a lot in college but nothing serious until the first of these books, which started around seven years ago…
Can you give us a little insight into any fantasy characters in your latest book?
*I invented a race of people called the Crion—they stand about four feet tall and have upslanted eyes and copper hair—they are the ‘keepers of the wisdom along with another race I made up known as the Amuigh—they are more like a cross between a human and a gorilla…
Is your the world in your book like earth or is it a fantasy world? It is on earth
*Parallel with Scotland (another reality) but has all the earth-like attributes.
What is the time period setting of your latest book?
*It starts in 2009
Do you prefer to write as a series or one off books?
*This one got so long that I had to divide it up! The one I’m working on now may do the same thing…I like series both to read and to write—gives the reader a longer time with characters one connects with.
Do you like to use lots of subplots or do you think just confuses?
* I do have several sub-plots going through the narrative but in the end they all connect.
Can you tell us a little about one of your sub plots in your latest book?
*One of these is the love/hate relationship with Gertrude and the priest who is bent on taking over the Otherworld…
Can you tell us a little about your protagonist and your antagonist and how they relate to each other?
*Maeve the protagonist is actually related to the antagonist who is her uncle. The priest is the twin brother of Maeve’s grandmother (her mother’s mother)
How do you think you would feel if you received a really bad review that seemed justified?
*I can’t imagine it, really—I had this book edited and went through it seven or eight times—if someone just doesn’t like the story then that’s understandable—I know it could be improved-- there’s always room for improvement, but I think it’s a good story the way it stands.
Do you think all readers should do reviews to help the writers improve?
No. I think if someone asks for a review it isn’t the same as a critique and shouldn’t be put into the public as such—if there are things about the story that the reader doesn’t like or a lot of typos and mistakes then he or she can mention them, but not get into writing style or telling a writer how to write…
When you receive reviews do you find yourself influenced to make changes?
I had a recent e-mail exchange with a writer who I respect and he mentioned a couple of things that I will definitely keep in mind—it depends on the review, I suppose—criticism can be done well or it can be just plain mean…
