I’m interviewing Brit McGinnis, author of “Romancing Brimstone” on my blog today. Welcome!
Have you been writing for a long time?
Yes, for about ten years. Before I made the shift to writing books, I was a journalist and essayist.
What inspired you to start a writing career?
It was all I ever wanted to do, to be honest. Even when I was taking classes in chemistry and working side jobs in terrible theaters, I had my tiny notebook in my back pocket where I wrote terrible fiction.
Is “Romancing Brimstone” your first book?If not, can you tell us about your first book?
It’s my first published book. I have a novel-length fanfiction of The Princess Bride floating around somewhere, but I don’t think that counts.
Why did you choose supernatural romance as genre to write in?
I think supernatural romance is a surprisingly diverse field. It allows people to explore the subject of imperfect love and flawed significant others, perhaps more than in other romance subgenres.
Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Just write your story! I meet so many people who are incredibly talented but doubt yourselves so much that their work never makes it to the light of day. I want to choke them (lovingly) and then distribute their manuscript to everyone I know.
About the Book
Author: Brit McGinnis
Genre: Supernatural Romance
Things aren’t going well for Mika. Engaged to a man she doesn’t love and facing a future she has no interest in, she’s lost and alone. She’s attending the funeral of the only person who ever truly understood her (in the company of her overbearing mother and fussy fiancé, no less!) when she meets the man who will change her life forever.
Except, well… he’s not a man. He’s the Devil. The real-life Devil.
Scary, right? But it turns out the Devil has a choice for Mika. But it’s not an ordinary choice: Become Satan’s bride and rule in Hell amongst the demons and lost souls, or marry Nick and remain in the world of humans. Forget love. This is a chance for the freshest start of all.
Brit McGinnis’ intriguing supernatural romance Romancing Brimstone upends everything you may have wondered about love, commitment, and the world beyond life and death. Mika’s not your average runaway bride. She’s ready for a change of scenery, and Satan himself may be the one to change her heart.
Brit McGinnis is an author based in Portland, Oregon. She writes supernatural romance and occasionally speculative fiction. In her previous life, she was an award-winning journalist and blogger. Her next book Smugglers is due out October 26th and is currently available for pre-order on Smashwords.
