Title: The Fawn
Author: Susan Griscom
Genre: New Adult
Publisher: Amber Glow Books
Release date: Winter/Spring 2014
 Note: Contains strong language and violence.


After a not-so-wonderful young adulthood—shuffled from one foster home to another—Lena Benton had hoped marriage would be her ticket to happiness. Wedded a year after high school graduation, Lena was certain she’d found her knight. But when Troy Harington’s true colors surface shortly after their glorious day of elopement, things aren’t quite as rosy as Lena had envisioned. When an unforeseen event turns ugly, all she can do is ... run!

But does she run far enough?

Jackson Beaumont prides himself on being a nature-loving, guitar-strumming carefree sort of guy, known for his eagerness to help injured animals find their way back into the wild. When Lena Benton walks into his bar, he’s once again swept off his feet with concern and desire to help the wounded. Will he risk having his heart torn apart again when the memory of the fawn he rescued as a child resurfaces?

Something about Susan

I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, spending most of my time daydreaming or playing around in the mud. I grew out of the mud play, well, most of the time, a good soak in the mud is always fun. I still daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So, I write to remember them. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play--a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course. I'm pretty sure it was the acting.

I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and sometimes they tend to lean toward the unusual and edgy.

My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running hot as does a steamy contemporary romantic suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story line and a refreshing read 16 Jan 2013 By Penjobe

Even though I could be seen as being in the top end of the target audience - Teenagers and Young Adults. I found this book very interesting!
The storyline flowed well, the Characters were well described and I could easily relate to the main character.
I also loved the historical content, telling you about the places they visited with reference to real places that were accurate.
I am an avid reader and found this book a refreshing change and one that can be relaxing for the more mature brain but still ignite the interest of the reader.
I couldn't put it down. I would definitely recommend this book to people 11+ and even those who weren't the intended target. For me it's an all rounder.

Interview with author:

When did you first start writing?

I started writing when I was about fourteen. I started a romance story in a collection of notebooks and my friend joined in with me for a bit. Unfortunately a lot of that story was lost so I have been re-writing it and updating it ever since.

Did you always want to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?

No, I used to want to be a teacher!

What drew you to writing young adult stories? 

Well as I started when I was fourteen it was my age group and still is just. I like writing about the way younger people see and feel about relationships and situations as it’s a lot different to an adult.

Where does your inspiration for these stories come from?

Good question! I’m not really sure, sometimes it’s just a random idea or its adapted from a dream or an advert or something in my life.

What has your experience been like publishing with

They have been very good and very helpful. There have been a few teething issues but mostly they have been very accommodating and I would recommend them.

What was your favourite chapter to write and why?

My favourite chapter would probably have to be Chapter 8 as I enjoyed writing it from different views. I won’t say any more than that J

Where is your favourite place to write?

My favourite place is my bedroom at my desk, which I just recently set-up J

Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? i.e. You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?

My only routine is I sit at my desk and I have to listen to music otherwise I become distracted by the TV programmes.

Do you use a computer/laptop for your first draft or are you a pen and paper writer? 

I used to use pen and paper as I knew I’d always have it with me, however I hated typing it all up so I use my laptop now.

How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?

The characters are usually a mixture of names I like and surnames of random people or first names of people I know with different surnames.

Did you learn anything from writing your book?  What was it?

I learnt more about the Dartmoor area and the places available to visit there. I also learnt that editing is very hard but very rewarding.

How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?

Not that long a few months or so really. It’s the editing that takes the longest for me.

Can you describe the feeling you had when you saw your published book for the first time?

I was ecstatic! I was so very excited and I kept touching it and showing it to everyone.

Who are some of your favourite authors? 

Lauren Kate, Karen Mahoney, JK Rowling, and many more.

Have you ever suffered from a "writer's block"? What did you do to get past the "block"?

Yes I have, not sure there are many writers out there who can say they haven’t! I tend to do a few things; mess around on Facebook for a bit, text a few of my friends and family, make a nice hot chocolate and re-read what I have written. If that still doesn’t work then I put a film on and go back it after it. There has only been one occasion where I had to give up trying for the day as it just wasn’t happening.

What piece of advice would you give to a new writer?

Keep at it. Try editing your own work before giving it to a professional as it makes you so much closer to your own work and teaches you a skill.

Would you share a deep dark secret about you with us?

A deep dark secret, gosh I’m not sure I can think of one! Let’s see... I once tried writing a raunchy scene but I made myself feel embarrassed so deleted it!

Memoirs of a Succubus Blurb

Sex is the ultimate carnal desire, a sharing of energy and light between one or more individuals. Natalya Hart is in a world of sinful flesh where her power sharing is grossly one-sided. Having reckless tryst after reckless tryst, living in a state of the orgasmic now, Natalya becomes faced with a dilemma. Should she continue on a path of indulgent behavior or investigate her lewd acts seeking answers to questions that loom? Two men, one on each side of her double-sided morals, guide Natalya until the bitter end, wanting her to choose one or the other. Should she stay untamed, listening to the man who reassures her about her natural-born tendencies? Or should she seek out the white picket fence, becoming a “good girl”  with the one who falls in love with her at first sight? You determine those answers in...

Memoirs of a Succubus

Winter's Island Blurb

Cay Winters is an impressionable free spirit from Los Angeles, California. Losing her mother at a very youthful age has given her a drive to live life a certain way. Her aunt Lulu and cousin Malcolm welcome her into their hearts, taking care of all of the things needed by a motherless child. Being an artist has taken her to a lot of interesting places; but when the chance to live in Saint Thomas, Virgin Islands appears, she is eager to take it.
Once there, she is overwhelmed by the beauty and the mystique of the Virgin Islands. The food, the beaches, the attractions are amazing, but William Gatling is the best part. He takes on the task of teaching Cay how to love the right way. The only problem is the secret that he holds from her. A revelation that could rip her from his heart; or, worse yet, end her life.
The two lovers spend so much effort trying to fight their inner demons that they cannot see the true devils that are sitting in front of their faces. Once Cay fights her battles within, she can finally win the war outside. Once William accepts the truth, he can see the light.

Winter’s Island

As you all know I like to ask people random questions, just to spice it up a bit and I asked Lillian the following question:

Would you rather be chased by a one duck sized horse or 100 horse size ducks?

I would like to see 100 horse shaped ducks...nothing like a good stampede

Back to blogging


I am so sorry I havent blogged for awhile. I was firstly busy trying to get Jo's Story: An Erin the Fire Goddess novella complete. Which I have to say is now finished and away to the editor. It is book 3.5 in the series and needs to be read after Torment otherwise it will give the game away ;)

Jo's story will tell all about who she is and how she came to work for Dr Hammersmith. 

I have to say that Jo is definitely one of my favourite characters.

I have not written a synopsis yet. Oh how I hate writing them. But needs must and all that. And then there is the cover to do. I will be creating my own cover for Jo's Story and hopefully using my friends daughter as the cover model.

I will keep you all posted on the release date for that.

I know so many of you were almost screaming with how I finished Torment and I know you all want book four as in yesterday but I am still only on chapter 1 of writing it. I am hoping Jo's story tides you over though :)

So last week I was without internet. I felt so lost, as if someone had come and cut my arms off. Well yesterday I got it back on and yippee I am back to blogging :)

Over the next month I will be blogging about not only authors but lots of different people, such as readers, who after all where would us authors be without them? Then there will be bloggers, who are so much better at it than me and who help promote lots of authors. Then there will be people who would in crafts, some make book related products and some not. 

All of these people are on my friends list and they have all been supportive of me and I want to give back and get everyone to show them some love as well.
