Leker lite.

Ibland är det verkligen roligt att bara leka och experimentera fram olika bilder! Det här är en simpel bild, men ändå riktigt läcker, tycker jag! Är väldigt nöjd med den.

Omslaget till "Angel in chains"

Efter mycket om och men lyckades jag till slut hitta de rätta bilderna för min första engelska bok. Nu är omslaget färdigt! Här har ni en kort text om bokens handling:

The last thing Inez expected to find inside the cave that appered from nowhere was a chained angel. 

Intervju med Heather Killough-Walden.

Heather Killough-Walden har självpublicerat över 20 böcker. Hon är en av New York Times bästsäljande författare och skriver bland annat om änglar, vampyrer och varulvar. Hennes böcker finns att köpa hos till exempel Amazon och finns tillgängliga för Kindle och Kobo. Här kan du läsa en intervju jag gjort med Heather. 

What advice would you give to new self-published authors?

“Never give in, never give in, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” It was a tribute to strength and perseverance, written and spoken by a great man. Of course, it was about war. But then so is writing.

How has self-publishing changed your life?

Like most writers - and I'm talking about something like 999 out of every 1,000 - I hopelessly banged my poor fragile head against the steel wall of god-complexed print publishers and failed. For ten years. For some reason, the editors who accept manuscripts for publishers, and also the agents who show the manuscripts to those publishers in the first place - don't normally recognize a best seller when they see one. Which became obvious when self publishing turned into a reality with Kindle and Nook and other eBook publishers who opened the door for indie authors... who then went on to publish and make bestseller lists left and right. Like me. So self-publishing didn't only change my life, it MADE my life. I am now a New York Times bestselling author. Because I published myself.

Why would you recommend other authors to try self-publishing?

The bottleneck frustration of attempting to print publish is no longer a necessary suicide-inducing evil. See above.

How did your career as an author start?

I’ve been writing since I was five. I love words. I adore them like I adore autumn and pumpkin patches and Trick-or-Treating and thunder storms and kittens. They are my faithful companions - my loyal friends. My career as an author is not actually a career so much as a life choice. The way some people are Christians. Or vegetarians. Or octogenarians.
Needed another “-arian” in there.

Which of your books would you recommend new readers to start with and why?

It would depend on which genre they preferred. If they like romantic actions and thrillers, then Hell Bent. Actually, no matter what they like, I would probably recommend this one first. It’s my favorite. It’s just about everyone’s favorite once they’ve read it.

If they like paranormal romance, then start with the Big Bad Wolf series (intense beginnings – awesome, incredible, justifying ending) and move on into the Kings series, which is a direct spinoff of the BBW.

If angels are their thing, then clearly there’s the Lost Angels series. Azrael is a tempting literary morsel….

Young adult paranormal romance fans (Twilight fans) will find what they’re looking for with Sam, Dominic, and Logan in The October Trilogy.

Intermediate and young adult fans who like to grow with the literature (the way readers did with Harry Potter) will love Forever Neverland. This one’s a masterpiece.

As is Redeemer, but in a different way. Redeemer is grown up, hard-hitting, action-packed, intense, and not for the weak of spirit or closed of mind. Romantic undertones galore (not to mention vampires), but there’s a very adult message to this one.

A Sinister Game is a stand-alone romantic science fiction and fantasy novel that is as sinfully hot as it is because I wrote it after dreaming of its main male character. When this happens, I am able to incorporate the most intensely, darkly charismatic attributes to my bad/good guys. It makes them undeniably dream-worthy in return. This one is a must-read.

If they want a few vampire romance novellas (that are really not that short at all),  go for Vampire, Vampire. Both are hot. One is definitely not for prudes.

The Chosen Soul series is fantasy romance – devils, witches, elves – in a world filled with undeniable lust, powerful passions, and more magic and might than you could shake a wand at. Ask anyone who has read this series to tell you about Drake of Tanith… and watch their eyes glaze over with longing.

How does a regular writing day look like for you?

There are no regular writing days. They’re all different and unpredictable and bizarre (and inordinately full). My mind is a blissfully and terribly UNregular place to be. ;)

The Kings-serien av Heather Killough-Walden.

Heather Killough-Waldens senaste serie är The Kings. Rekommenderas för dig som gillar att läsa paranormal romance-böcker. Observera att de riktar sig till vuxna. Här nedan kan du läsa om de böcker som kommit ut. Imorgon kan du se fram emot att läsa en intervju med Heather där hon bland annat pratar om självpublicering.


It was immediate for Roman. In three thousand years, he’d never lost control of his emotions, or his heart. But the moment he laid eyes on Evelynne Farrow, he knew she was the woman who haunted his dreams. And everything changed.


Evie Farrow has always loved a good vampire romance. In fact, she makes a living writing them. While sitting in a coffee shop and working on her next mega-hot book, Evie is approached by a tall, dark, and handsome man who could have been pulled directly from one of her novels.

Unbeknownst to her, Roman D’Angelo is exactly what he appears to be – a vampire, and not just any vampire, but the king of vampires.

Unfortunately, while Roman is both ancient and invulnerable, Evie is flesh and blood. Just as Roman decides that he and Evie have a date with destiny, for reasons of their own, an ancient god and a homicidal vampire take an equally strong interest in her.

Can Roman fight off the incredible forces that would have Evie as their own long enough to win her heart, or will destiny betray him and destroy everything he has ever dreamed of?

A mighty power is awakening, wreaking havoc on the supernatural world. The 13 Kings, their queens, the werewolf nation, and the witch covens with their high leader, Lalura Chantelle, must band together and stand strong in the face of a dawning nightmare that threatens the very fabric of all they hold dear… and from which none may escape.

“Lalura had told him about her vision. Thirteen kings on a chess board – and thirteen queens….”


Siobhan Ashdown was born of magic; it rides her blood like a phantom, tainted and dark and unpredictable. She is a warlock, and the power within her is unlike any before known to her kind. So it’s no surprise that the most powerful of the demons who feed off of this warlock magic not only recognizes the enormous potential she represents but determines that he will possess her at any cost.
Even if it means war with the entire supernatural world.

Thanatos has ruled Purgatory as the Phantom King since time immemorial. King of a vast plane of solitude, he is a free spirit, a lone rider, a tattooed man of wind and dust and nonexistent boundaries. Then he turns around one morning to find himself face to face with Siobhan Ashdown, a woman with hair as red and wild as his soul, eyes like melted gold, and a spirit as elusive as his own. Time stops, the world tilts, and the fact that she attacks him right off the bat does little to deter his romantic convictions.

Thirteen Kings are severed by lust and greed, an ancient vampire and his rogue creation lay claim to what is not theirs, the whisperings of war begin to shake the foundation of the supernatural world, and primordial evil awakens from its slumber to slither across the land in this second installment in the Big Bad Wolf spinoff series, The Kings, by Heather Killough-Walden.  


Jason Alberich wears the crown of the sovereign of the warlocks, a dark breed that uses darker magic. He wears it well, skillfully wielding a power that would corrupt others. Yet he has paid the price for his control, bearing the scars of a time when his power had control over him. He is haunted by the regrets of a shady past and now lives each day and night with an isolated soul.

Chloe Septeran is an Akyri like no other. A member of a race that must depend upon warlocks for sustenance in exchange for servitude, Chloe runs from the dark magic users, choosing instead to live free of their hold. She has existed empty and “hungry,” but stubbornly free of the warlock’s dark embrace. However, now the fates have chosen to bring her running to a halt, as the 13 Kings each discover their queens – and the Warlock King discovers his.

A mighty power is awakening, wreaking havoc on the supernatural world. The 13 Kings, their queens, the werewolf nation, and the witch covens with their high leader, Lalura Chantelle, must band together and stand strong in the face of a dawning nightmare that threatens the very fabric of all they hold dear… and from which none may escape.


Damon Chroi has known the weight of ruling in loneliness for thousands of years. The tall, painfully handsome fae lord was born with so much power, the fae kings not only envied but feared him, and banished him to a forbidden realm to be forgotten. There, he was tasked with ruling over the deadliest creatures known to the fae worlds, and his veritable battle as their sovereign is never-ending. As one of the 13 Kings, his destiny foretells an end to his solitude with the appearance of an equally powerful queen. But that kind of power is hard to come by. And power or not, Damon can’t imagine any woman willingly joining him in the eternal misery to which he has been tasked.

Until he meets the beautiful, strong and selfless Diana Piper.

Diana has been hiding a potent secret from the world for decades. She was born with abilities others would fight to win, and kill to keep. To make matters worse, she is a sensitive soul who, despite the danger it poses to herself, uses these powers to make the world a better place. Forever in harm’s way, overworked and head strong, Diana one night comes across the ultimate challenge in the form of a wayward fae beast – and in the process, crosses paths with its indomitable king. A light can only shine in the darkness so long before someone takes note of it. And Diana not only manages to gain the instant attentions of Damon Chroi… but of those who would do anything to see him – and the other 13 Kings – dead.

Fyra böcker i en om varulvar!

The Big Bad Wolf Romance Compilation

Go back to the beginning and experience the sweet, sinful sensation of the big bad boys who started it all. ;)Enjoy Heather Killough-Walden's critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling Big Bad Wolf series, now combined in one tome of sexual tension, romantic suspense and dark paranormal bliss....

The Heat, Book One

Lily St. Claire is a simple Southern girl who has no idea what she is in for when she decides to move back to her home town in Louisiana after a decade of being away. But between the two very different alpha werewolves who instantly begin fighting to claim her as their mate and the serial killer who has her in his sites, she's about to find out.

The Strip, Book Two (warning, contains graphic violence)

Green-eyed Malcolm Cole is a cursed werewolf, an alpha in the most powerful sense who has given up hope for any kind of happiness or peace in his life.

Until he catches wind of Claire.

Claire St.James, Charlie among friends, is an amazing young woman with an incredibly special gift. Cole recognizes this at once and swears on the spot to claim Charlie as his mate.

Of course, he isn't the only one with such plans. Charlie is too precious to let go without a fight, and one of the most powerful alphas in the world has already staked a claim, whether Charlie - or Cole - like it or not.

The Spell, Book Three

Dannai, aka the Healer, has begun dreaming of werewolves. She'd always been able to hide the fact that she was a dormant, using her magic to shield her promising scent from the alphas she's been forced to work with. But now that they've invaded her dreams, her world has been turned upside down. For, though every dormant dreams of her intended mate - Dannai is dreaming of two wolves, not one. And neither one of them is good news. One is a notorious killer. The other is Lucas Caige.

Lucas Caige is a man with a haunting past. A warlock took his brother from him fifty years ago and he's spent his life outrunning that dark magic. But fate has a way of throwing sand in your gears, and just when Caige thought he could forever leave behind the magic that brought pain to his life, his path crosses that of the Healer. Dannai unwittingly casts her spell over him the moment he lays eyes on her. She's stunning, she's kind, and everything about her wreaks havoc on his senses. She's also magic incarnate.

But if Dannai thinks that's going to stop him from doing everything in his power to make her his mate, the little witch has another thing coming.

The Hunt, Book Four

Byron Caige has been a prisoner for the last fifty years of his supernaturally long life. Just when he gives up hope of ever knowing freedom again, he is unwittingly rescued by the very same woman who only wants to see him dead. Katherine Dare – Kat – is smart, fast, strong and beautiful – but unfortunately she’s a Hunter, and she’s convinced that Byron murdered her father twenty years ago.

She’s also Byron’s dormant.

As war breaks out amongst the otherworldly of Earth and threatens the existence of entire races, Kat is faced with a terrible decision. Should she give up her cause and believe Caige when he professes his innocence? Or should she fight him and possibly avenge her father’s taken life – even while she forfeits her own?

Dags att söka sig utomlands.

Jag har börjat kolla upp hur man ska göra för att publicera sina böcker hos till exempel Amazon osv. Mitt mål är att, förr eller senare, lyckas som självpublicerad författare utomlands. I Sverige är detta fortfarande väldigt nytt och e-böcker är inte heller lika populära. I USA däremot är självpublicering en riktig stor grej och många  kan försörja sig på det. Jag är inte ute efter att bli mångmiljonär, men det vore trevligt med tillräckligt mycket pengar för att kunna betala sina räkningar, sätta mat på bordet samt ha lite över för nöjen. Sedan får vi se hur det blir.

Det jag upptäckt hittills är att man måste ha eget företag i Sverige för att kunna publicera sina böcker hos Amazon. Sedan måste man vända sig till IRS, den Amerikanska skattemyndigheten för att införskaffa ett ITIN-nummer (International tax identification number). Detta tar tydligen 2-3 månader att få och ska vara rätt krångligt. 

Här kan man läsa lite om det hela hos Amazon:

Jag är precis på väg att kasta mig in i allt det här. Förhoppningsvis kommer det att gå bra.

Min nya webbsida.

Härom dagen skapade jag en engelsk webbsida för mina böcker. Den tänker jag använda som huvudsida istället för att marknadsföra mina bloggar var för sig. Från webbsidan kan man sedan ta sig till bloggarna, hitta information om kommande böcker, var man kan köpa de samt vilka som redan kommit ut. Det kommer dessutom att bli alltmer fokus på mina engelska böcker efter att "Stjärnfall" blivit publicerad.

Ta dig gärna en titt:

Jag har upptäckt att det är väldigt roligt att göra egna omslag, headers osv. Jag är långt ifrån ett proffs och har fortfarande mycket att lära. Idag har jag lekt med att skapa annonser för "Dödens gåva". Vilken gillar du bäst?

Lite kul med sonen.

Härom dagen var det strömavbrott hemma hos oss i flera timmar, dvs ett planerat strömavbrott. Då passade jag och min son på med att roa oss med att tillverka några hudvårdsprodukter som inte behöver värme för att tillverkas. Jag är sedan tidigare utbildad hudterapeut och har tillverkat hudvårdsprodukter i flera år. 

Först ut var en färgglad lotion som var mest tänkt som dekoration. Efter det gjorde min son en egen handtvål baserad på olivolja och utan vatten. Det var verkligen ett intressant recept han vispade ihop!
