FIVE QUESTIONS WITH... Inger Iversen (Includes Giveaway)

Today we are incredibly lucky to have the super sweet author of the Few are Angels series here on the blog for our FIVE QUESTIONS WITH... feature!! This series sounds amazing and I'm really looking forward to reading it!!


Inger Iversen lives in Virginia Beach with her tree-hugging boyfriend Joshua and her overweight lap cat Max. 

Few are Angels ( Few are Angels #1)
After a fatal hit and run accident, Ella Monroe fears that she’s lost more than her beloved parents. Horrifying visions of a past life and a disturbing voice in her head have psychiatric professionals convinced that she’s lost her sanity as well. But when Kale--a dark and handsome stranger with a mysterious past--reveals the true meaning of her visions and the tremendous power she wields through them, Ella must come to terms with the devastating truths of her own past, while eluding an ancient Dark Prince who seeks to control not only her future, but all of mankind’s, by means of abilities that Ella is only beginning to understand.

Enter the shrouded world of an age old battle between an ancient race known as the Immortals and their bitter enemy Laurent, the so-called Dark Prince, who commands an army of half-breed vampires known as Chorý. Both sides have been desperately searching for the prophesied emergence of the Arc, a clairvoyant with unparalleled power to recall the past and a soothsayer with clear vision into the future. 

The Council of Immortals has sworn to protect the Arc, whom they have identified as young Ella Monroe, a college freshman from Virginia living quietly and unaware of her powers or her past. But a renegade Chorý has other plans for the protection of a girl he has loved through the ages. Can Kale convince Ella of who she is, what she is destined to become, and what he once meant to her? Is he truly the best protector to shield the world from the devastating misuse of her powers that Laurent is bent on controlling? Or will the forbidden love they share and Kale’s cursed condition as a retched and hated Chorý be used against them both?

This paranormal romance told from the heroine’s perspective builds in intensity and intrigue to a finale you won’t see coming. Heart pounding action mixed with heartwarming friendships and heartbreaking romance will leave you breathless and begging for more.

Awakened (Few are Angels #2)
What must he overcome to protect her?

With no clue of what to do next and the responsibility of looking after Alex and Mia as promised, Kale is up to his ears in problems and no solutions. How will Kale save Ella, keep Alex and Mia safe, control Jace as well as control the Bloodlust that creeps beneath the surface waiting to be released? Will Kale be Ella’s savior or will he convict her to a fate worse than the one Laurent has already promised her?

What truths will she learn?

Ella knows that the choices she makes affects not only her but everyone else around her, but what about the choices made to find her? Ella learns the truth about the death of her parents, learns that the ones she thought she could trust aren’t so trustworthy after all.
How will Ella handle these betrayals, and will she be able to sacrifice what is necessary to obtain eternal life?

Five Questions:
1. Why did you choose to write a book in the Young Adult genre?

       I love the YA genre. This genre is filled with first loves, first kisses, memorable adventures and self-discovery. I remember my first kiss, my first love and when I finally arrived to the point in my life where I realized who I was and what I wanted to be in the future. In YA books you can experience that over and over again.

2. Who is your favourite character you have written and why?

       I love all of my characters, but I have a soft spot in my heart for Alex. Alex is one of those sweet and passionate heartthrobs that you don’t realize you’re falling for until it too late. I love the bad boy swoon worthy boys like Kale and Jace, but there is something about Alex that sticks out. Readers write in their reviews that they love Alex and are routing for him in the next book. Well guess what readers, so am I!

3. Describe a typical writing day for you?

Normally, I write at night or very early in the morning. I work overnight and often keep those hours. On a great writing night around 11:30 I sit on the chaise lounge, throw in a pair of ear buds and listen to the Awakened soundtrack while I reread a few chapters as a sort of refresher course in what I wrote the day before and then I get to writing! Unfortunately, I don’t get those nights often, but it’s not for lack of trying!

4. What are you reading at the moment?

        What am I reading? I wish! I don’t have time to read right now. When you self-publish you have to do EVERYTHING yourself. I’m promoting my book, writing Awakened, doing interviews and keeping up with my website, so I don’t really have the time. I do have a rather large TRB list and wishlist.

Top 3 in no particular order:

1.    The Syndicate, by Shelena Shorts
2.    Alice in Zombieland, by Gena Showalter
3.    In My Dreams, by my Indie sister, Cameo Renae

5. If you turned your iPod on now, what would be the song that is currently playing?

Right now, my brother has my IPod So, I’m using Spotify and the first song is the remix of In for the Kill, by La Roux!
