GCC Presents Kelly Parra and SUPERNATURAL HUNTERS!

I'm excited to welcome another author from Girlfriends Cyber Circuit who is releasing a novella this week. Kelly Parra's latest teen kick-butt romance hits the shelves from Buzz Books this month!

"Just the right combination of butt-kicking and romance to keep you on the edge of your seat."
- Allison van Diepen, The Vampire Stalker

Supernatural teen hunters and kick-butt couple Jaz and Blake get trouble in their own backyard, the graveyard, when a ghoul is on the loose and looking for fresh meat. When a teen hunter on the verge of death arrives at their doorstep, they realize a much greater evil is upon them.

Jaz is satisfied with their makeshift foster family and fighting monsters, but Blake yearns for adventure and the truth about his biological family. Will Blake leave Jaz to search for something more...and to fend for herself? Can a relationship survive when death is lurking just beyond the gravestones?

SUPERNATURAL HUNTERS (Buzz Books, Oct 2013) is the first novella to follow Jaz and Blake's whirlwind, action-packed romance started in PROM DATES TO DIE FOR and SOMETHING WICKED. With an eye for great dialogue and fight scenes, SUPERNATURAL HUNTERS is a fast-paced, fun read.

INTERVIEW WITH KELLY PARRA:

1. Tell me about your book in seven words or less.
Kelly: Teen Supernatural hunters must battle a Necromancer!

2. Other than your main character, who's a favorite character of yours in your novel and why?
Kelly: That would have to be Oz. He’s a warlock sworn by an oath to protect and train Supernatural Hunters. He wears glasses, has red hair and freckles, and loves Asian culture! A very fun character to write.

3. What's one piece of writing advice you would give to aspiring authors?
Kelly: Learn to adapt. When I first was published ebooks weren’t as popular, and the first kindle had just been introduced. Now look how ebooks have caught on! I have had to learn to adapt to marketing digitally, not just with blog tours and interviews. It’s been a learning experience and I’m still learning.

4. What did you write when you were a teen? Did you journal? Write poetry? Write overly literary or emotional stories? Or avoid writing altogether?
Kelly: I wrote angst filled poetry and some short fiction. It was the reading I avoided, now you can’t stop me.

5. What's the last book you read that you really loved?
Kelly: STUPID CUPID by Tina Ferraro
