In the Spotlight C.M. Boers

in the spotlight question

Welcome to Second Run Reviews, C.M.! Thank you for being In the Spotlight. I appreciate you stopping by and answering a few questions. So let’s get things started

Tell us a bit about yourself.

 

 

author interview cm boers

I am a mother, wife, photographer, writer, and author. I love to write, just love it, editing not so much. I have gone to college for many things (I love going to school, I’m weird), but have only one certification and that’s for Medical Transcription. I have two dogs (a boxer and a mastiff), a black cat, and a bearded dragon named Toothless. I love watching movies and I love it when a book is turned into a movie. I love Disney probably as much as my kids and can’t wait to go back to Disneyland. I love chocolate and I dislike skittles. Random Fact: I’m allergic to the sun.

in the spotlight question

We appear to have a lot in common! I hope a black cat. I’m a huge Disney fan (I worked at the store for 2 years and chocolate is a food group in my house.

What inspired you to write and release your first novel, Obscured? What’s been your favorite fan reaction to the book?

 

author interview cm boers

I was inspired after my first son was born. I found that I had a lot of extra time on my hands Of course that was when he was a newborn and that changed quickly, but I also wanted to feel like I was actually doing something worthwhile and Obscured was born.

My favorite fan reaction…hmm..I’d have to say that when a fan referred to the ending as “killer.” It was probably the biggest compliment she could have given me.

in the spotlight question

Sounds like that fan is probably anxiously awaiting August 1st to arrive!

What was the most difficult thing about getting published? What was the easiest? If you had to go back and do it all over again, is there any aspect of your stories or getting published that you’d change?


author interview cm boers

I think the most difficult thing about publishing for me was actually getting the courage to do it. Putting yourself and your work out there to be enjoyed or hated for the first time is beyond scary! The easiest would have to have been designing the cover. I knew exactly what I wanted, thankfully I had the perfect model ready and willing. I think if I could change anything, I probably would have made more of a fuss about the release, I did nothing! Oh well..Past is the past!

in the spotlight question

Putting something so close to your heart out there in public is scary! I’m tense every time one of my posts goes live. What if there is a terrible typo? What if no one likes my opinion? Some days it is frightening! And it does take a lot of courage to be an author.

What type(s) of books to you enjoy reading most and what three books to you find yourself recommending to your fans over and over?

Now this question is hard for me because I read just about anything. Obviously I prefer YA, but by all means I’m not restricted to that. Recently, I read The Ghost Bird series by C.L. Stone and that was amazing so that would be my number one. My second would be The Doorknob Society series by M. J. Fletcher. Third would have to be Lauren Kate’s Fallen series.

 

in the spotlight question

Those are new ones to me. I think you just multiplied by TBR pile like 100.

What’s your current obsession? Any secret obsessions you want to share?

 


author interview cm boers

Current obsession…hmm…I think my main focus right now has been getting Divulge ready to release. I can’t say I have any current or secret obsessions, but I will say when I read The Ghost Bird series, I read all 8 books in 8 days. Yeah. I’d say that was an obsession for sure.

 

 

in the spotlight question

You did what?! Holy smokes. I’m lucky if I can finish a book a week. That must been an excellent series. Gotta check those out!

Any last thoughts or wise words you want to pass along?

in the spotlight question

Congrats on your upcoming release, Divulge. I hope it hits the bestseller list on Amazon. And I hope that you’ll drop back in and tell us how it going before the release of your next book.

The Overview

Synopsis: Abby Martin was an ordinary girl about to start high school, or so she thought, until she became plagued with nightmares after learning that she would be moving to Arizona with her mother. Stressed doesn’t even cover what Abby is feeling when she thinks about trying to make new friends, but to her surprised she is surrounded by a new crowd from day one. She is even drawn to one guy in particular, Pete, but when Eli tries to convince her to stay away, she begins to second guess whether he is the guy for her. Unfortunately, she doesn’t heed his warnings and finds out too late he was right all along. What’s more is Eli isn’t who she thought he was either. Immortality, kidnapping, and gifts are now swirling through her mind. The deeper she dives into learning of Eli’s world she finds herself more confused and in trouble. And to top things off Abby suddenly can’t stop thinking of Eli, her Protector, in a whole new light, is that love she’s feeling? Abby and Eli get in over their heads when Pete is plotting against them, but who will come out on top?
