Today, I am excited to have Shay Fabbro visiting to share what exciting things she has coming up! 🙂
SMN: Hi, Shay! I am so excited to welcome you back to my blog! Congrats on the release of the second novel in your YA series, The Adventures of Alexis Davenport! I have really enjoyed the series so far. I understand you are planning on one more book for the series. Can you share some of what to expect in book three?
SF: Oh my goodness! There’s quite a lot that’s going to come up in book 3! Alex will find an ally in the most unexpected place, deal with a pretty major issue at home, and finally meet Drifter face-to-face! I’m so excited to begin work on this last book. It’s going to be epic!
SMN: I know you are also working on a sci-fi series. Can you tell us a little about that?
SF: My scifi series involves a group called The Chosen that must fight the Mekan fleet to save the galaxy. The Chosen come from four different planets, which leads to some pretty interesting confrontations. Things go badly for the Chosen when one of them is killed. I just signed a contract with BookTrope Publishing for the Portals of Destiny series so the books have been pulled from websites and retailers (there are a few paperbacks available from 3rd party sellers on Amazon). But never fear! I should have a launch date for the re-release of the books so keep your eyes peeled on my website!
SMN: I read on in your interview with Karen DeLabar that you had some ideas for a crime/thriller series. This seems to be a break from your usual sci-fi/fantasy genre. Are you excited about trying out a new genre?
SF: *claps hands excitedly* I have ideas for two books that will be stand-alone but with the same main characters (the detectives). I got these ideas from dreams (no surprise there!) and are going to be fairly creepy and twisted, which is what crime/thriller are supposed to be. I’m going to immerse myself in that genre by reading as much as I can so I can really nail the books.
SMN: My three favorite genres to read are YA, Romance, and Crime/Thrillers (needless to say, I am excited about the possibility of a new genre for you). What are your favorite genre’s to read?
SF: I would have to say Scifi, Fantasy, and Horror. But I also read mysteries, crime/thriller, some paranormal, but it tends to be more on the level of urban fantasy.
SMN: What is your favorite way to read? Kindle? Nook? Paper?
SF: I own a Kindle and do read on that quite a bit. It’s very handy to keep in my purse for those long waits at the DMV or doctor’s office. That’s not to say I don’t read paperbacks, but I generally save those for my favorite authors, since they do cost a bit more than Kindle books by hot, new authors!
SMN: Where can we find out more about you and your books?
SF: You can find me on my website, Facebook fanpage for the Portals of Destiny series, Facebook fanpage for the Alexis Davenport series, Twitter accounts for scifi/fantasy (@ShayFabbro) and YA (@DrShayFabbro).
Thank you so much for stopping by, Shay! I love chatting with you! 🙂
