Anonymous asked: Hi Pepper. I am a huge fan of yours and I wanted to know how you come up with such gr8 stories. what's your inspiration or muse?

Thanks for the compliment! This is my favorite question so thank you for asking. If you check out the Tumblr page under ‘About My Stories,’ each story link describes what gave me the idea for it. In general my ideas come from an image or thoughts that begin with, “I wonder what happens…?” And from there I create a story about something that has intrigued me enough to create an entire world around the idea. My universal muse is always music. I don’t write without it. Then my other muse is whatever inspired me to write the story or that helps facilitate me writing it—like a good beta reader.

Anonymous asked: Hello Pepper Pace, First of all I love your books, your writing is so eloquent . I've nearly read all your work and you live no room for one to doubt your talent. My favourite story so far is stranded! . However , I just wanted to ask you about some things I noticed on reading a seal upon your heart, you used Nigerian surnames Ibori and Okafor as the names of some boys who partook in the murder of Martier's family? Was this confidence or just artistic licence ? - A Nigerian fan

Hello my Nigerian fan and thank you. I doubt my writing all the time so it is very nice to have someone remind me how much my stories mean to them. Generally, I don’t like coming up with character names and will struggle trying to find some. I end up asking friends to name my characters and just go with whatever they say. For A Seal Upon Your Heart I used an online name search to select the names of the people living outside of the USA, beyond that there was absolutely no research done on the names

sosweetmsv asked: Hi Pepper! I absolutely love the Wheels of Steel series! I just completed the series, & I wanted to know when Book 4 will be out. At the end of Book 3, it said that Book 4 would be released this year. I can't wait to read what happens next to Top & Robin... I love their story! :)

Thank you :)

I love WOS and will be continuing their story even beyond book 4. The problem is that I am currently drowning in commitments and obligations that unfortunately take precedence over my writing. At this time I can’t give any specific dates. Committing to this year was pretty hard. Sorry that I can’t be more specific.

Anonymous asked: Just recently discovered you and your books, and I love them so much. It's so hard to find a good IR romance, and yours just make me so happy. I pretty much devoured WOS, and I'm dying for more. Any kind of estimate for when the fourth book will be released?

Thank you Anonymous! I’m always so happy when people discover Wheels of Steel because it is such an unlikely love story. For the last year I have been making plans to release WOS 4 but other projects kept it on the back burner. I’m proud to say that this year WOS 4 is on the front burner. With that said…no, I don’t have a estimated date for release. Well, I still have to write it. I’d like to see it in 2014 but I do want you to know that you will see several new works this year for sure!

Anonymous asked: Are you writing anything currently? I struggle finding interracial books with substance but I ALWAYS read and read Beast. It's without a doubt my favorite interracial novel of all time and in my top 5 favorite books. The story was just so good. There was sex but a LOT of story and interracial romances just don't have that balance. So anything new? Similar in pace to Beast?

Hi Anonymous. I’m constantly writing and my plans are to release the 3rd book in the UV series in March (possibly April) as well as a short story which will be released around then. I have a larger project to be released in early summer. The short will be much like Beast. I’ll talk more about my projects when I’m able—I’m working with others so we agreed not to talk about it. But I appreciate you asking.

2-souls asked: First let me say that you are my #1 All time favorite author, hands down. I appreciate all of your works. My question is, I have a Nook and Kindle also an account with All Romance, I was wondering why some books are available on some and not others? Not that it matters because I will find you anyway, but I thought it would just be easier to purchase and read books on one system.

Thank you 2-souls I appreciate that! that makes my day. Well on All Romance I’ve begun the process of uploading only those books that have been re-edited. Eventually all of my books will be professionally edited and then all of them will appear on the same sites.

barpat asked: When will all your books be available on amazon or iBooks in e format? The vampire series, emoboy and the love intertwined 2 and many others are not available.

Sorry it took me so long to answer this. I have some serious issues with Amazon pulling Love Intertwined 2 and specifically Emoboy for ‘content’. Although Amazon sold the book for 2 years, quite suddenly it’s content is not allowed. So for those two books they will never appear on Amazon or Amazon affiliated publications. I will make them available on AllRomance ebooks sometime after February.

In reference to my other stories; any that are for sale should be available in ebook format. Some that I am keeping as a free read will only be available at the site where the free read is hosted. Thanks for asking barpat.

barpat asked: I'm not sure if my question was posted so I'm reposting. I was wondering when will all of your work be available in kindle form or in iBooks. I have everything that you have written so for on amazon. You are my favorite author, you and jr ward. I love your writing. But I would love more, I live how your characters make appearances in your other books.

Hi Barpat…I’ve been slow but I did get your question. Thanks for asking and for showing that you are a fan of Urban Vampire. Urban Vampire will be available sometime in March. I had to put a HALT on all my projects when my Mom was diagnosed with cancer and I became her primary caregiver. But things are evening out for me and I can focus on my writing again. Thanks for being a fan barpat!
