Cassiela by Danielle Gavan Interview

I've had the AWESOME opportunity to spend some time getting to know Danielle. She is here to tell y'all about her upcoming book, Cassiela. I've asked her a few questions, but if you have more, please feel free to contact her by one of the links at the bottom of this post :)


About the Book:
Give me the blurb for the book:

Gripped by crazed jealousy, the Angel of Death gave up on his happily ever after, until the day a shy redhead appeared. Could she be the cure Azrael’s madness?
Cassiela is plagued with lustful thoughts of the Angel she’s assigned to guard. Once bitten, Cassie is twice shy from the moment she sets eyes on Azrael. Lost in his dark eyes and easy smile, the Angel of Deliverance finds old hurt and pain coming back to haunt her—in more ways than one.
One Angel will stop at nothing to keep Rae and Cassie from claiming the life they never expected to have. A battle to rival the Great War in Heaven is begun by Rae and Cassiela’s need and love for one another. Will something even they never expected, and are unwilling to give up, turn the earth into a battle ground, and the lovers facing off against the biggest Angel of them all?
Do you have a favorite character?  Why is he/she/it your favorite?

I have to choose? Hmm.. I’d say Azrael with Brody being an almost dead heat tie. *grins* Rae wins out by a slight margin because, really, who doesn’t love a tortured soul. He gives the word tortured a whole new definition.

What do you hope readers will get from your book?

I hope they’ll see that when love finds you, no matter where it comes from or the form it takes, recognize it and cherish the amazing gift you’ve been given. Also, if something is worth having, it’s worth fighting for.

About the Author:
What/Who inspires you?

That’s a hard one. Inspiration comes from so many different places and at such odd moments, it’s hard to pick just one. The beat of a good song, the smell of a candle or a sexy man walking by… there’s so much to draw from. I find the best thing is to take inspiration when it comes and run with it. You never know where it will take you.

Hardest aspect of writing? Best/Easiest?

For me, letting the characters tell their story without sticking my nose in and trying to drive it the way I want it to go is the hardest part. I don’t usually know where they’re going to take me, or the story, but when I do… It’s like trying to avert a train wreck and ending up the car sitting on the tracks when the whole thing goes ‘boom’.

The best part is when the story is finally done and out there for people to read.

 About the Future:
What’s next for you?

I’m working on the next book in the Abbey of Angels series, as well as a novella featuring Brody. A lot of fans have expressed an interest in his background, and in some of the things I left out of Ardeur. I hope to have it done and ready for readers by fall 2012.

One outrageous goal for the future?

One? Jeez. Okay… To be as successful as my favorite author, Laurell K. Hamilton.

Do you have any advice you'd like to share with other aspiring writers?

Butt in chair, hands on keyboard. Every. Day. And, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t. Prove them wrong and do it.

Sweet or salty?


Beach, plains or mountains? 

Plains…lol I’m pale skinned and the beach always ends up in me with a horrendous sunburn. Moutains? I don’t climb anything other than the stairs or a ladder.

Online, letters or in person?

Depends on what I’m doing. *wink*

Ebook or print?

Everything ebook, except Laurell’s. I buy her books in hardcover.
