Revolution by Shelly Crane Blog Tour Interview

In the fourth and final installment, everything is on the line. Merrick's life is in the balance and Lily is their only hope. Ellie and her new powers are miraculous, but also problematic; if she's with the bunker family, they won't be able to sense when the Lighters are there. There are many new members to the bunker and sparks will fly, and with the food shortage, they will all have plenty to deal with. Miguel is intrigued with Rylee, her past and her spunk. Ryan and Elli are barely scratching the surface of their relationship. Cain and Lillian will have to deal with Daniel, who has no qualms about showing his true feelings for her. And Sherry and Merrick…what will happen to this happenstance family who have worked so hard to come together? Can they all survive? Can they all withstand the new enemy that is right outside their door? Can they beat the Lighters, once and for all… 


About the Book:
Do you have a favorite character? Why is she your favorite?

I'd say my favorite is probably Sherry. She's so like me, especially in the first book. I'm quiet and just go with the flow, too. I can't hide my emotions at all. It's always right on my face.

What do you hope readers will get from your book?

That REAL love is a real thing.

About the Author:
What/Who inspires you?

I love music. I listen to music non-stop. I don't think I've ever written anything without it.

Hardest aspect of writing? Best/Easiest?

Hardest? Making yourself be thick skinned and understanding that every book isn't for every person. Easiest? The fans and authors I've met. I've made the best friends of my life from fellow authors and the sweetest fan ever have made me smile big time.

Who is your writing hero?

Easy!!! M. Leighton!

About the Future:
What’s next for you?

Next is the final installment of the Significance series, Independence. Then my new stand alone contemporary, Wide Awake, then The last Devour book, Altered, then Smash Into You.

One outrageous goal for the future?

Hmmmm….. a million book sales??? I can dream!!

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

Edit, edit, edit!!!! Befriend other authors, talk to your fans and offer giveaways, ect. They will be your lifeline!

Sweet or salty?


Beach, plains or mountains?


Online, letters or in person?


Ebook or print?

Hmm. I do love my e-books and I usually try to read most of them that way, but when I really love a book, I've got to have it in paperback. I have a little paperback obsession going…
