The Novel Approach is happy to have author Aimee Brissay with us today to help in the countdown celebration to Euro Pride Con. Aimee talks a little bit about her love of writing paranormal fiction, and is also offering the chance for one lucky reader to win the e-title of your choice from her backlist.
THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED
And now, here’s Aimee…
For the first time in my life I will be attending an event like the Euro Pride Con and I am beyond excited In fact, I spent the next couple of days after registering floating on air. I got so worked up I ended up having one hell of a headache. And not only am I attending the conference, but I am one of the panelists as well, which brought on another wave of excitement.
The Other Worlds panel seems to have been made especially for me. I have always been attracted to paranormal and supernatural beings, the darker and the more dangerous, the better. Of course, being born and raised in Romania helps. Like any country with such a long history, it is full of legends and mythological creatures, so it’s really no stretch of the imagination that my writing turned to the Other Worlds realm. Vampires, therians, angels and demons, they all have a story to tell.
Brought up in such an atmosphere, my characters grew rough, gritty. Perhaps too much at times. The world they live in is similar to ours, their Bucharest is my Bucharest, with little differences. They take their strength from their surroundings and shape themselves to fit the environment. Yet, no matter how much of a badass they are, they all are as vulnerable to love as anyone else and they need it just as much.
There is nothing I love more than seeing the story take shape beneath my fingers, perhaps only the complete picture. I love it how the characters surprise me along the way, how they take a simple scene and turn it into something more.
I can’t wait to share my world with the readers and the other authors and be introduced to theirs. I love hearing from the readers, so the Con will be a great opportunity to interact and share ideas.
About the Author: Born in Romania, land of the Iele and Vlad the Impaler, she’d spent all her life surrounded by books. She rode side by side with d’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers to retrieve the Queen’s diamonds, set sail on the Erasmus in search of the Japans, fell in love with Rhett Butler and roamed the Wild West along Old Shatterhand. She walked on the footsteps of the Olympian Gods and searched for Zalmoxis’ sanctuary in the Carpathians. In her mind, she’d never been the damsel in distress but rather the knight in shiny armor fighting for a cause.
With a background like this, turning to writing was no surprise. She discovered erotica early on in life and never looked back. Now she can write anywhere, even in a crowded room or a busy subway station, but she loves solitude.
When she’s not at her evil day job, she can be found writing or playing with her cat. She welcomes messages from readers and promises to answer all of them as soon as possible.

Thank you for the chance to win a book.
Thank you for participating. :)
I am so glad you will attend the convention and we can find out more about the world you create in your books. I love gritty and real characters, especially if they really don’t and can’t exist in real life. I want an author to make me believe they do as I read their story, to forget that there are no vampires and paranormal creatures. I want to feel the world they exist in to be just like mine, to imagine it could really be true.
Romania sounds like a great setting and with it’S long history a wonderful inspiration for your stories. :)
Thank you. Perhaps one day you’ll come visit Romania and find out about all its legends from the locals. It’s worth it.

Hi, I enjoyed reading this post and even though this a new author to me I can sense that reading her books will be like an adventure to me, full of vampires and supernatural creatures. I love it when a story can transport you to a new world and just like the author I have shared the tribulations and happiness from the characters and their stories and eagerly await new stories about a favourite world.
