Luna Lindsey-- Make Willing the Prey
Luna Lindsey is an indie author located in Seattle, WA. Her first story (about a hippopotamus) crawled out of her head at the early age of 4. After running out of things to say about hippopotami, she switched genres to sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. Now Luna writes ebooks for devices like the Kindle.
Make Willing the Prey: Sandy Windham is the least likely person to ever believe in faeries, and she especially wouldn't want to marry one. That's why she's caught the eye of Haun, a wicked faerie who's been put to an interesting challenge: Get a banal girl to marry him.
At first Sandy is delighted to receive so many luxurious gifts from a secret admirer. It's flattering and fun, and she hopes to one day meet this mysterious romantic. But before long the seduction turns chilling and Sandy wants the game to stop. By then it's too late. She and her friend Jina are ensnared in a web of illusions they may never be able to escape.
Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
Make Willing the Prey is both scary and magical. The classic Celtic fairytale describes capricious creatures with alien morality. They often steal food or cows, kidnap children and women, and lure people into fairyland. If fae lived in a modern setting, they won't find many cows, but there are plenty of tempting damsels to lure. It features not one, but two strong female protagonists, and a very creepy unseelie faerie. Readers will thrilled, chilled, enthralled, and surprised.
Q: Why did you go indie?
Much of my work crosses multiple genres and can be difficult to categorize. For this and other reasons, I wanted creative control of my work. I also like the ability to publish quickly after the final draft is ready.
Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Anne Rice, Anne Bishop, Terry Goodkind, Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman, and Jacqueline Carey
