Book Tour: Power by Theresa M. Jones

Author Interview & Giveaway

When did you first realize you wanted to write a book?
Well, I'm pretty sure that I wrote my first book in 3rd grade. I was so proud of myself for filling in an entire 150 page spiral and I still have that “book” too. So, I guess ive always known that I wanted to be a writer. Though I didn’t get serious about it until 2009 when I came up with the idea for Power.

What was your inspiration for writing Power?
I thought of the idea one night when I was at home after putting my daughter to bed. I thought about how cool it would be if my life had more meaning. I was a young single mom at the time, so you can see a lot of that in Power.

What research did you have to do?
I had to research about the Sierra Nevada Mountains, where the Compound is located in Power. And I did some research into Greek mythology. But that was about it. The rest I already had stored in my fuzzy little brain.

What was the most challenging part of writing Power?
Finding the time to write. I think that is still the hardest part of writing for me. Just finding the time to write my stories down!

What was your favorite scene to write?
Well, I loved writing the romance scene between Allison and David! Writing about how they grew to love and respect each other!

Which character did you enjoy writing about the most?
Allison,the main character. She is largely based on me and my life. And of course her daughter, Samantha.

What are three words you would use to describe the main character in Power?
Impatient. Strong. Passionate.

What author/book influenced your writing the most?
Umm… this is a hard one. There isn’t a specific author that has influenced me, so much as there are multiple authors. I love MANY authors. Jennifer L Armentrout. Jessica Sorensen. Lauren Oliver. JK Rowling. Veronica Roth. (just off the top of my head)

Did you suffer from writer's block? If so how did you overcome it?
No, writers block was never really an issue for me. I had to take so many breaks in my writing due to life circumstances (getting married, having another child, work, school, etc) That I never had time to actually develop any kind of writers block. At least not yet… *Crosses fingers*

Are you working on anything new right now?
I just finished editing the second book in The Descendant Trilogy, Hope. And will be starting a new Fae series soon!

Thousands of years after the battle between the angels, when Lucifer was defeated by Michael in the Heavens, the war is still being fought on Earth by the humans who have their Power, the Angel’s Power.

Allison Stevens is a 21 year old single mother who gets thrown into the middle of this battle when Damien, the Leader of the Rising, decides to hunt her down and kill her because he fears she is the descendant prophesied to save the world.

David, a member of the Order, takes Allison under his wing in order to show her the ropes, and hopefully groom her into being the one they have been waiting for. The only problem is that they start to grow more attached than a teacher/student relationship should allow.

But that isn’t all. Damien wants to open the Seven Seals and bring about the apocalypse and it’s up to Allison to not only save herself and her family, but save the world, all while trying to keep her heart from breaking.

No problem… right?
