Interview with author Mark Henry - Parts & Wreck - November 26, 2013

Please welcome Mark Henry to The Qwillery. Mark's most recent novel is Parts & Wreck, which was published on November 25, 2013.

Interview with author Mark Henry - Parts & Wreck - November 26, 2013

TQ:  Welcome back to The Qwillery. We've remodeled a bit since you were here last.

Mark:  Thanks! Nice to be back!

TQ:  So... you've written a Paranormal Romance novel. This seems a bit of a departure from your prior adult novels (See Amanda Feral). What appeals to you about PNR? Do you follow the rule about an HEA or HEA for now? How is your PNR different?

Mark:  You know, Amanda had her romantic moments…sort of, but those books really were comedy of manners, or of the ill-mannered. Parts & Wreck definitely follows a similar tone in that it is a comedy, but the romance is at it’s core. I love the weird twists and turns a couple goes through to connect. As for rules, I follow them, for the most part, there’s definitely an HEA-ish in Parts & Wreck. That wasn’t so much of a struggle, because I do like to wrap things up in each book whether it’s a romance or not. I’m already seeing reviews that have declared that Parts & Wreck isn’t like anything else in PNR, and I hope that’s the case. I think there’s room for some weird romance. it’s madcap and crazy and sexy. And I love it.

TQ:  Give us the elevator pitch for Parts & Wreck (Parts Department 1)?

Mark:  A brutish amateur surgeon takes on a potentially volatile assistant for demonic organ transplant removal, hilarious misadventures…and love.

TQ:  The title leads me to believe that someone or something is a wreck. Any hints? Too spoilery? Tell us something about the novel that is not in the book description.

Mark:  The “wreck” in the title refers to the human condition. What I love about my characters is that no matter how crazy they are, they are smart and can deliver some really intelligent insights about what connects us all as people. They’re not sappy, they’re real and I can’t think of anything sexier.

TQ:  Since there is a series title - Parts Department - can we expect additional novels in the series?

Mark:  Yes. I’m working on the proposal for the second book, Cold Hands, Warm Parts, which will tell Polly’s story. I love taking seemingly unredeemable characters and turning them around and Polly’s smarmy gossip reporter is begging for a makeover!

TQ:  What else are you working on and what's next?

Mark:  By popular demand, I’m returning to the horribly insensitive world of my zombie socialite, Amanda Feral for a trilogy of novellas. The first, Beach Blanket Bloodbath is coming next month. I’ll be indie publishing those. And I’m working on two separate young adult projects. I hope to have news on the new Parts Department novel soon!

TQ:  Thank you for joining us at The Qwillery!

Parts & Wreck

Parts & Wreck
Parts Department 1
Entangles Covet, November 25, 2013
eBook,  200 pages

Interview with author Mark Henry - Parts & Wreck - November 26, 2013
Wade Crowson, a brutish and brooding playboy and veteran vivisectionist for the Parts Department, runs into more than he bargained for in new partner, Lucid Montgomery, a quirky beauty with a bizarre secret and a string of psychiatric diagnoses she tries hard to keep hidden. Loving Luce will stamp a demonic target on her back and thrust Wade into a frenzied whirlwind of hilarious misunderstandings and, quite possibly, a stripping gig for emptynesters. Can they withstand the savagery of an exorcism (with or without the split pea soup) and come out alive and …in love?

Note: Parts & Wreck is on sale for $0.99 until November 30, 2013!

About Mark

Interview with author Mark Henry - Parts & Wreck - November 26, 2013
Mark Hnery traded a career as a counselor to scar minds with his fiction. In stories clogged with sentient zombies, impotent sex demons, transsexual werewolves and ghostly goth girls, he irreverently processes traumatic issues brought on by premature exposure to horror movies, an unwholesome fetish for polyester and/or witnessing adult cocktail parties in the swingin' 70s. A developmental history further muddied by surviving earthquakes, typhoons, and two volcanic eruptions. He somehow continues to live and breathe in the oft maligned, yet not nearly as soggy as you’d think, Pacific Northwest, with his wife and four furry monsters that think they’re children and have a complete disregard for carpet.

Gone With The Wolf
by Kristin Miller

Covet Cover Reveal - April 19, 2013
CEO and alpha werewolf Drake Wilder has given up the search for his one true love. When he discovers that she’s a secretary in his company, Drake’s primal instincts kick into overdrive.

What he wouldn’t give to have her fingers rake over his body instead of the keyboard…

Free-spirited bartender Emelia Hudson wants nothing more than to make her Seattle-based bar succeed. But when profits decline, she slips into a dress suit and secures a nine-to-five. After learning that her bar has become property of Wilder Financial, Emelia is determined to get some answers.

Two can play the ruthless business game. If only her attraction to the boss wasn’t so intense…

When Drake’s twin brother senses that Drake has found his match—and now inherits their father’s billion dollar estate—he hatches a plan to take Emelia out. Drake vows to protect her at all costs, but he might have to pay with his own life.

The Awakening: Aidan
by Abby Niles

Covet Cover Reveal - April 19, 2013
Is the gift of eternal love a blessing or a curse?

After years of counseling grieving shifters, psychiatrist and half-shifter, Dr. Jaylin Avgar has become jaded on shifter mating. She wants to marry a human and forget about the love for eternity crap. Then she meets Aidan O’Connell, an infuriatingly laid back shifter who represents everything she doesn’t want. Yet, the more he pursues her, the more she craves a future with him. Only one thing stands in her way: death. Can she overcome her fear of losing Aidan to the one guarantee in life?

Millionaire consultant, Aidan O’Connell knows he’ll one day meet a woman who’ll awaken an unrelenting mating instinct. Unfortunately, that woman is Jaylin, who has no qualms about telling him that he and his so-called eternity can shove it. When she pushes him away, he takes a drastic step so she can no longer escape. The close proximity throws the instinct into overdrive. Can he control the need engrained in him until he’s certain she will reciprocate the bond, or will a moment of weakness doom him to hell on earth?

The Demon's Song
by Kendra Leigh Castle
Hearts of the Fallen

Covet Cover Reveal - April 19, 2013
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. At least, that's how it seems to Sofia Rivera when her attempt to help a friend ends in a blood-soaked confrontation with creatures that aren't even supposed to exist. With a group of rogue vampires determined not to leave a single witness to their violence hot on her heels, Sofia finds herself saddled with an immortal bodyguard—Phenex, the fallen Angel of Song.

While the vampire king roots out the corruption threatening to take down his underworld kingdom, Sofia will have to deal with a fallen angel whose dark beauty is often at odds with his ornery nature. Slowly, Sofia and Phenex give in to the strange attraction neither can deny. And as the darkness closes in around them, Phenex begins to wonder whether even the wickedest Fallen might find his own happy ending...and his heart.

Tall, Dark, and Divine
by Jenna Bennett

Covet Cover Reveal - April 19, 2013
Being the Greek god of love doesn’t mean you believe--or want--anything to do with that sappy emotion. Sure, Eros runs his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, but finding his own love has never been part of the equation. When he spots the sweet baker who works across the street, he vows to match her with someone else before she stirs his sullen heart.

Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter workaholic is easier said than done…especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.

Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone who isn’t him—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.

Deceiving the Witch Next Door
by Melissa Bourbon Ramirez

Covet Cover Reveal - April 19, 2013
Down-on-her-luck witch Storie Bell never thought the biggest threat to her future would be Reid Malone, the very man she’d run from years before. After striking it rich in Texas shale, he’s back in town, and he seems hell-bent on getting in the way of her bookstore’s grand opening. A witch trying to blend in in a small southern town is hard enough, but now he’s seriously testing her strict No Kissing Mortal Men policy. But even witches don’t have a spell for that.

Reid knows there’s much more to Storie than meets the eye. But right now he has only one mission: to infiltrate her shop so he can snatch the elusive secret ingredient to his father’s million-dollar moonshine recipe. Once he does, he can go back to the city and get out of his small hometown, a place in which he has no future.

But as the days go by, he can’t help falling for Storie in every way…and every encounter brings him closer to finding out what happens when you try to deceive a witch.
