Interview & Giveaway with author Janiera Eldridge

I would like to welcome author and fellow book blogger  Janiera Eldridge to Book Flame

Hi Janiera so glad to you have you on Book Flame.         

Thanks so much for having. I read your blog all the time so it is so cool to be on it!

What inspired you to write Soul Sisters?
I wanted to write a book with strong African-American female characters. I didn’t write about vampires because their trendy, I wrote about them because I’ve always enjoyed reading about them from as far back as I could remember. I also wanted to put a spin on the classic folk lore tale so, all of these things combined help give birth to Soul Sisters on paper.

If you had to do it all over again would you change anything in your latest novel?
I’d like to say the ending but some people like and some don’t. I can’t please everyone and was really true to myself when writing so I guess the answer would be no.

Which of your characters from Soul Sisters would you invite to dinner?
All of them except for Donovan. He’d ruin all of the fun! My main characters are people I’d love to invite to dinner for a chat. They have their faults but we all do. They really are all people I’d love to get to know.

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book?
Requiem For A Dream. It is an incredible instrumental piece that was made for the movie by the same title. The song builds up to an incredible climax and lowly winds back down. When i hear it, it just sounds so right and reminds me of Soul Sisters every time.

What book should everyone read?
The Help, it’s my favorite book of all time. Everyone should read this as it is a wonderful example of what it means to be a wonderful human being.

If you could travel back in time and meet yourself as a 10 year old what advice would you give?
Awesome question! I would say bust you butt in school because it makes you happy but don’t be so obsessed with college. You will just drop out and become a writer anyways. LOL.

What is the one quote that inspires you above all others?
If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress. Barack Obama
