Madison Daniel Interview

Welcome Madison Daniel

Today i have the great pleasure of hosting the amazing author of Ember Madison Daniel.
Here's Madison's Bio just to keep y'all waiting that little bit longer:

Bio for Madison Daniel:

Music is LIFE and the written word is our SOUL. Music and writing have been my true ambition since I was a child. I have used music in every form possible; writing it, performing it, healing with it, etc. I call it my "life's soundtrack." I have always written in some form, from comic books to screenplays to short stories and now the new series "Ember." I have spent my writing life inspired by all the music of the universe, 80's movies and eye candy. When not writing I enjoy dreaming out loud, challenging the real world and inspiring the ones I love. I have found a true passion for my stories and characters and am eager to share them with the world. 

So lets get to the good part i know y'all can't wait for the interview so here it is:

Welcome Madison First i want to thank you on behalf of not only the amazing readers out there, but also on my behalf. So let's get down to what the readers really want to know.

Jenny: As most readers know you are re releasing Ember back out into the world again. How does it feel this time? Is it new and exciting?

MD: It feels amazing! Having my manuscript picked up by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing has lit a fire within the Ember universe. Smoking hot new cover, fresh edit and fantastic new merchandise! 2012 is going to be an inferno!

Jenny: From the Ember series which is your favorite character? and why?

MD: The main protagonist, Max Valentine. He has so many little nuances from my life that it has to be him! Though, my fav character to write is Asia Michaels..... she's just so darn moody!

Jenny: Is there a favorite genre of books that you love to read and write?

MD: Horror or suspense (Stephen King addict) but lately YA/Paranormal seems to have the most creative and future rockstars emerging.

MD: Settle down, don't stress, enjoy the ride, trust your heart and dream out loud! Oh yeah....invest in Google.

Blurb for "Ember" by Madison Daniel:
Love never dies...but it can kill.

Ember is the story of Max Valentine, a teenager with secret abilities and many inner demons. His life revolves around music and his love for it. When his father dies he seeks answers with his last living relative, his fathers brother Frank. Frank lives on the island of Maui and eagerly takes Max in as his own. Max soon learns that healing his past will be more difficult than he could have ever believed. 

Max's temper and indecision will send in motion events that will cost him dearly. He will test the limits of his powers and the new relationship with his protective uncle. He will gain a powerful love and lose another. Blood will be on his hands, forcing him to run away from what he wants the most...a new start.
