Interview - Brigit Aine

Thank you for joining us today, Brigit. Tell everyone a bit about your book(s) including buy links.

I have a number of books out. I have "Red's Return", the first in a series about a town full of people with talent including being wereshifters. It is available at

I have "Cassie's Awakening", the second in the series over at Eternal Press.

I have a short story in the Just Another Paranormal Halloween and Chritmas anthologies. Those are fun lighthearted pixie stories.

Where did the concepts for the books come about?

Gosh...I just look around me and there is always something to inspire a story. I see magic and paranormal things everywhere I look, even in the mundane world.

How long did it take you to finish, from concept to final product?

1 year for each. By the time I wrote them, and the editing and the editing and the editing :D took place it was about a year, maybe a little less.

Are there any authors that have influenced your own writing?

There are a ton of authors I love to read, and I love the stories of but I don't know how much I manage to channel them when I am writing...I wish I could channel them more :D

Patricia Briggs, Sherrilyn Kennyon, Laurell K. Hamilton, JA Saare to name just a few. I am an avid reader and spend more time doing that then writing, so I am always looking for new authors and new stories.

Do you have any favorite place where you feel your Muse is more apt to come and play while you write? Or perhaps you listen to music? If so, what do you listen to?

I like quiet. My muse is particularly fussy and comes out only when it wants to, so I am not a prolific writer and I have to have the ability to write anywhere I am, as the urge could strike at any moment.

As a writer, what is your greatest fear?

I think my greatest fear is that no one will want my stories. So far that hasn't happened, but it is still my greatest fear. To have the courage to share the crazy things in my head is hard enough, but then I worry no one will want to read them.

What normally occupies your desk while writing? Pencils? Coffee mugs? Breakfast crumbs?

I don't have a desk. I take my iPad with me wherever I go and I have sticky notes in my purse.

Do you have any new projects that you are working on? If so, what are they?

I am currently in the editing stage of book 3 "Kraig's Kat" of the Torrent's Talents Series (going to come out with Decadent Publishing) and will then go into the editing stage of "Justice for Leanne", a new two book set about a god and his servant.

What tip would you offer to a new writer who is just beginning their submission journey?

Keep trying. Find a good house that will make you edit and re-edit and help you grow as an author. If you find a house that takes you but puts no effort into helping you create something better then you aren't going to grow.

Please tell our readers where they can find you.

Thank you Marva for having me today.


  1. Hi Brigit,

    Ha, ha, my muse must be a fussy as yours. She likes total silence.

    I can't write anywhere, I wish I could. I have to be in my den with the computer on my lap and the door closed.

    Thank you for sharing with us today. Your books look fabulous.
    Ahh, with Christmas coming up there will be more to put on my TBB list.

  2. Thanks for the interview, Brigit. Quite informative. Your covers are very nice too.
