Today, I would like to welcome Chacelyn Pierce, author of 'The Last Pyr of Eden,' to the blog.
What was the inspiration for 'The Last Pyr of Eden'?
My inspiration came from a lot of places for this book. My life, what I read, games I played online, and most importantly things I love about the fantasy genre. While it's hard to pinpoint one thing that sparked the initial idea, there had been numerous things that kept the ball rolling.
How many books do you anticipate being in this series?
At least three, each will be a different couple but have connected storylines. The second one is coming along nicely. I'm hoping to have it finished in the near future.
Any other projects in the works?
Oh yes, I'm wrapping up the second short story in my contemporary M/M racer series. I after that, I'm going to hop back into finishing a paranormal book that has been set aside. Once that's completed and found a publishing home, it's time to dive back into the big kahuna, the second book in the Hearts of Eden will be finished.
Which character spoke to you the most during the writing process?
Draven, since I'm such a villain loving gal, he was the loudest out of everyone in the book. There will always be a special place in my heart for my villains. Frankly, it's because they come to me so vividly and with little thought.
Which scene was your favorite to write?
The very beginning. I love writing my starts anyway but Raynor's start still holds the title as my favorite scene in any of my books written so far.
If you could be an elemental, which powers would you choose?
Describe your ultimate paranormal man.
Well, long hair is a must. Tattoos and some piercings would be the cherry on top. I'm big into alpha males of any type. He could be a vampire, werewolf, or fae, it doesn't matter and it doesn't take long for me to fall for those types of characters in a book.
What music did you listen to while writing this book?
A lot of a Polish, progressive rock band called Riverside and the lead singer from that band also has a side group called Lunatic Soul. The musical vision on each album helped me mold my story.
What are you reading right now?
Julie James's About That Night, book three in her FBI/US Attorney series.
What is something readers may be surprised to learn about you?
I usually only have a small outline of my books, most of the story is written on a whim.
Anything else you would like to share?
My publisher has marked this book on sale at Amazon, get it now before it changes.

Outside the protected gates of Eden, ancient enemies lurk in waiting to drain elementals of all their power.
For eons, the four elementals have bled their nourishing blood to sustain life for superior spirit elementals known as Daemons. No race has suffered in despair as critically as the fire elementals—the Pyr. Their numbers dwindled down so miserably, that Raynor is the last known warrior of the race, living on a faint hope that there is more of his kind between both worlds. He ventures out constantly searching for elementals to save from enslavement. In reality, he searches for a female to bond with. After a yearlong trip away from Eden—an elemental settlement hidden deep in the woods—he is immediately confronted by the enchanting Sylph, Samira. She ignites desires and emotions in him that he considered long dead and nearly destroyed like his people. Indulging in his erotic cravings with Samira can be a daring game to play, because elementals have never intermingled in all recorded history.
