Hi all. Today I am excited to share an interview with Jaidis Shaw, author of Destiny Awaits. Enjoy!
Q: Who are you, and why should readers read the rest of this interview?
A: I’m Jaidis Shaw; a quirky author who is trying to get the word out about my newest release. Readers should keep checking out the interview because it would make my heart happy, I’d love them for eternity, and I’m offering a giveaway.
Q: Tell us a little about the work you are here promoting.
A: I’m here today to promote my new paranormal romance Destiny Awaits. It takes a look at the life of Alayna Scott who moves to Juniper Grove after the death of her parents. Unaware of the dangers in her new town, she catches the eye of a local vampire who wants her to be his next meal. Through a series of events, she is brought into a world that she never knew existed and struggles to not only survive, but to understand what she has become.
Q: As a writer, do you have plans for world domination, or do you have a day job as well?
A: I’m not going to lie…world domination is on my to-do list. However, while I’m plotting my next move, I do have a day job. I am the Book Tour Coordinator for Nurture Your BOOKS™ so I spend my day helping other authors promote their work. J
Q: How do you handle bad reviews? If you haven’t had one…would you be willing to grant me permission to trash your writing, just to see if you cry?
A: Well since it is a new release, I have not received a bad review yet (thankfully) although I know they are there waiting, just around the corner, eager to strike when I’m least expecting it. That being said, I would prefer you didn’t trash my writing because I know that when I do receive a bad review (especially ones that make me cry) I will just mope around the house all day and my diet will be replaced with a ton of chocolate and junk food…lol. Bad reviews, so long as they are honest and nice, are always welcome. J
Q: Do you blog? If so, don’t you wish you were as cool a blogger as I?
A: I do have a blog, Juniper Grove, and yes I do wish that I were as cool as you. Do you have any tips for how I can achieve this greatness of which you speak? Please?
Q: I think I could actually take some tips from you Are you planning to give something away (if not, good luck getting anyone to read this thing) and if so, what are your demands for winning (I assume, your book because why else would you stop by?)
A: Yes I would love to offer a giveaway! Two lucky readers will have the chance to win an eBook copy of Destiny Awaits! The winners can choose between PDF and Mobi formats. There are no demands although it would be super nice if the winners would consider leaving a review of the book on Amazon and/or GoodReads.
Q: Any advice for aspiring writers?
A: RUN! Get out while you can! Just kidding…maybe…well…not really. It takes a LOT of work to be a writer but I say that if you love writing and you want to write a book…then do whatever it takes to make that happen.
Q: Alright, where can readers find you on the web?

Twenty-year-old Alayna Scott receives visions around water, but even her foresight couldn’t prepare her for the tragic accident that claimed the lives of her parents. With everything she loves gone, Alayna packs up and moves to the small town of Juniper Grove in hopes of starting over.
Jayden McKnight can’t explain the attraction that he feels whenever Alayna is near, but he does know that he will do whatever it takes to win her heart. When a vampire selects Alayna as his next victim, Jayden will stop at nothing to ensure her safety – even if that means bringing Alayna into a world that she never knew existed.
Love blossoms, challenges are made and Alayna will find herself fighting not only to survive, but to understand what she has become.
