Interview with Tate James/CM Stunich, DARK GLITTER


Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?
Dark Glitter is book 1 in The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club which will be a trilogy. Book 2, Cruel Glamour, comes out on April 1st. It’s a story about the Wild Hunt who have been trapped in the human world for hundreds of years while the Veil Keeper was missing. Now she has resurfaced.

Do you have a favorite character?
Reece. He is so much fun to write. His whole speech pattern is based on a guy we met in New Orleans called Al.

Are you currently under a traditional publishing contract for future books or do you have manuscripts that you will self-publish? Are you doing both?
We have loads of manuscripts in the works for self-publication! Neither of us use traditional publishers at this point in time but you never know what the future might hold.

What factors influenced your decision to self-publish your book(s)?
Mostly just freedom with speed of release. Being able to set our own release dates and deadlines to suit our own schedules.

If you used a graphic designer/publisher’s designer, how involved were you during the creative process for your cover?
Graphic designer and we weren’t actually very involved at all. It was a cover she made because inspiration hit her, and we just happened to have a story that was perfect for it.

What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
Music, with noise cancelling headphones. But only instrumental music as I find lyrics distract me too much.

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
Just go with the flow! Our characters dictate the story so it’s always exciting to see where they take us.

Besides Amazon, are there any other sites where your books are for sale?
CM currently has some books wide with ibooks and Barnes and Noble but Tate is exclusive to Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

Some fun facts about you, which do you prefer – dogs or cats? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or Tea? Talk or Text? Day or Night?
Cats, Chocolate, Coffee, Text and Night. 😊

What’s next for you?
Next we have the second book in this series, Cruel Glamour, releasing on April 1st as well as a new series starting on April 18th called The Nine.


Dark Glitter
C.M. Stunich & Tate James
Publication date: January 24th 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Thriller

Ciarah O’Rourke was born into torture.
A human spirit reincarnated in the body of an ancient fae goddess, she’s spent the last five years in iron shackles, her mind poisoned with magic for secrets she doesn’t know.
Waking up in a dirty alley with no memory of her escape, Ciarah finds herself in the hands of The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club–a ruthless and violent group of bikers with faerie blood in their veins.
Arlo. Reece. Killian.
Three men drenched in death, sin, and old magic.
From their clubhouse in the middle of the Louisiana bayou, they’ll offer Ciarah the keys to unlock her memories and control the veil between worlds. But even her knights can’t erase the twisted scars that remind her they aren’t the only ones who hunt.
When The Wild Hunt rides, the souls of the dead join their parade.
All that’s missing now is their queen.

C.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn’t mind – especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them everyday, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.
She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over thirty novels – romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.
Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.
