Crymsyn Hart's Deathly Encounters Blog Tour, Featuring Death's Dance and Death's Revival!
September 12-18, 2016
About the author: Crymsyn Hart is a National Bestselling author. Her worlds are filled with luscious vampires, gorgeous gods, quirky witches, and everything else that goes bump in the night. Hell, there is even a delicious cheesecake god floating around, but if I were you I wouldn’t eat his brownie cheesecake. Crymsyn worked as a psychic for many years in Boston while attending Emerson College. She graduated with a BFA in Writing, Literature, & Publishing. Crymsyn shares her life with a small zoo, three playful puppies and her hubby Mark. If you come after dark, you’re more then likely to find her snuggled up with a gory horror movie, or a bloody vampire movie. Crymsyn has a collection of Living Dead Dolls and five bookshelves overflowing with books. Of course there's always room for more.
- When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I first wanted to be a writer when I was a kid. I can’t remember the exact age. I just knew that I wanted to write stories like the ones I was reading about. My grandparents encouraged it and was never an interest that left me. I loved doing it so much I went to college for it.
- How long does it take you to write a book?
The length of time for me to write a book varies. It can be as long as six months or as short as a month. The normal time to just write a book length work is three months, but it can be shorter. I wrote my first 500 page novel in six weeks. I was inspired.
- What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
Well I have a day job, so I write when I can. I mean that’s about all I do. I write, I edit, I take a break and then the characters start screaming at me so I write again.
- What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
My most interesting writing quirk is that I tend to overwrite. I put in more details than I have to. But I write what comes into my head and then go back and delete it after in the editing phase. So I know I get the idea out on paper.
- Where did you get your information or ideas for your Deathly Encounter novels?
The Deathly Encounters novels were spawned because 1. I have one character who is in about half of my novels. He likes to pop in and out and he wanted his universe expanded so I just listened to him. The actual information comes from experiences I’ve had and a great imagination.
- What do you like to do when you're not writing?
When I’m not writing, I’m playing with my dogs, doing puzzles, reading, watching horror movies. Or dealing with the husband J. I’m kinda boring. A lot of the craft stuff I love I can’t do anymore because it hurts my hands too much.
- What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating The Deathly Encounter novels?
One of the most surprising things I learned was that writing the books spawned two spinoff series. Both of which are not out yet.
- How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
How many books have I write? You sure you want to know? Well I have written over a hundred books including novellas and short stories in the ten years I have been doing this. Some are still out and others are being shopped and some are out of print now.
My favorite out of all of them is Soul Reaper and A Deathly Undertaking.
- Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?
In becoming a better writer I would say keep with it. Read everything you can get your hands on. And I’m not talking writer manuals, I mean books. I learn so much from reading other authors. Hone your skill and when ready if you decide to self publish, hire and editor. Or if you go through a small press, follow the guidelines. Listen to your editors. They are trying to help.
- Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
I don’t hear from readers much at all.
- What do you think makes a good story?
I think that interesting characters and a good plot makes a good story. I like to be sucked in my what’s going on.
To find out more about Crymsyn:
Book Synopsis for Death's Dance: Being a psychic, you would think talking to the dead was a walk in the park. However, it’s not always that simple. The hooded specter haunting me is one I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. One day, he appeared in my bedroom mirror. Good. Evil. I don’t know what his true intentions are. Enter Jackson, ghost hunting show host extraordinaire, and my ex, to save me from the big bad ghost. From there…well…it’s been a world wind of complications. My house burnt down. I’m being stalked by an ancient evil and gotten myself back into the world of being a ghost hunting psychic. Jackson dragged me, along with a few other psychics, to a ghost town wiped off the map called Death’s Dance. From there things went from bad to worse. Death's Dance is Book One of the Deathly Encounters Series
Book Synopsis for Death's Revival: Becoming a grim reaper was right up my alley. I enjoyed being dead. I helped souls crossover into either Heaven or Hell with my fellow reaper, Than. For two years, I enjoyed my life and then the killings started. Psychics were being murdered at haunted sites and souls disappearing.Someone was tampering with the fabric of the universe, trying to draw something evil into this world. To do that, the killer needed the souls of the psychics and the ghosts he could gather to open the doorway.I was charged with saving those souls and find out who the serial killer was. Yeah, being used as bait was definitely not my first choice, but who can kill a grim reaper?I'm already dead.With Than's help, I'll stop the evil from penetrating this world so I can get back to my soul gathering. I mean the dead stay dead, right?
