Interview with S.R. Grey

Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?
Absolutely! My newest novel is Inevitable Detour. It is the first installment in the 2-book Inevitability duology. Inevitable Detour is a wild ride about a college-age girl, Essa, whose roommate and best friend goes missing after a night of partying. Essa teams up with her missing best friend’s brother, Farren. He’s an ex-Special Forces guy with a mysterious background, and Essa ends up on a journey of not only finding her friend, but also of finding herself.

Do you have a favorite character?
I think right now my favorite character is Farren Shaw from Inevitable Detour. He’s such an enigma. And as I get started on the second book in the duology, Inevitable Circumstances, I’m finding there’s so much more depth to him than even I anticipated.

What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
I usually write in silence. Sometimes I will have the TV on low in the background, though. Music influences some of my stories and chapters, but it’s usually inspiration found when listening to songs while driving or running.

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
It depends. I generally like to create a rough outline, with just a couple of notes here and there regarding chapters and the order of things. But I always end up changing it up, making adjustments. And sometimes I just go with an idea in my head and run with it.

Besides Amazon, are there any other sites where your books are for sale?
Yes. My novels are also available on Barnes & Noble.

What kinds of marketing [twitter, Facebook, blog, forums] are you involved with for promoting your book(s)?
I love social media! I am very active on Facebook, hosting Release Event parties and doing lots of blog page takeovers. I also am active on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Do you find it difficult to juggle your time between marketing your current book and writing your next book?
Sometimes it is, indeed, hard to juggle the two. Finding the right balance is imperative. I set aside writing time and marketing time.

Some fun facts about you, which do you prefer – dogs or cats? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or Tea? Talk or Text? Day or Night?
Ooh, I love these. Cats, chocolate, tea, text, and night!

Besides writing, do you have any other passions?
I do. I love to travel, and my goal is to see all 50 states. I’m up to 47, so I’m getting close. I’ve also traveled to a number of other countries.

 What’s next for you?
Well, I have the final novel (Just Let Me Love You) of my other New Adult series, Judge Me Not, set to release in January. Prior to that, I am part of an anthology of novellas with a number of other talented authors. That novella will be a departure for me, a combo on Romantic Suspense with a touch of Paranormal Romance. And, last but not least, Inevitable Circumstances will come out in the spring of 2015.

The day my life took an inevitable detour things got a little crazy.
My name is Essalin Brant, but everyone calls me Essa. I attend a small college in a tiny town, and in my twenty-two years of life I’ve never even traveled outside the state of Pennsylvania. You could say my life is pretty boring. I live by the rules. I’m a good girl and nothing exciting ever happens.

But that’s all about to change.

Enter Farren Shaw. Not only is he older and intimidating, but he’s more sure of himself than any 29-year-old man has a right to be. Did I mention that he’s drop-dead gorgeous? Well, he is. He also happens to be my best friend Haven’s brother. And I would be content with just fantasizing about Farren from afar, but when Haven suddenly goes missing, her gorgeous brother is the only one who believes me when I say she was abducted, even though all signs seem to suggest Haven left town willingly.

I know better, though. As does Farren. So when he asks me to accompany him to search for his sister, I accept.

That’s when the real adventure begins.

Our quest to find Haven takes us across the country. And throughout the time we spend together, I find myself falling for Farren . . . falling hard. He's everything I’ve ever wanted. But is he really someone I should fear?

Because aside from making me feel things I’ve never felt before, Farren is hiding something. Something big. What could this stunning man be keeping from me? And why? Is Haven’s disappearance somehow connected to his mysterious job?

All I know is that things are about to get real.

Welcome to the Inevitable Detour that has become my life.
