Interview with Cindy Cipriano

Interview with Cindy Cipriano
What genre do you write and why?
I write middle grades fantasy and young adult paranormal romance.

Tell us about your latest book.
The Choice is the second book in The Sidhe series. For Calum Ranson, seventh grade brings changes in his relationship with his parents and his friends, and a confrontation with his bully. Calum’s talents have also developed to a level unheard of in the Sidhe world.
When Calum goes against everything he knows is right, he makes a choice that may cost him his friendship with Laurel. An old friend steps in, but her mysterious ways leave Calum questioning her motivation.

In The Choice, Calum, Laurel, and Hagen reunite in their search for Finley. And while many things have changed, Calum remains steadfast in his belief that Finley is still alive and that Calum will bring him home.

What formats is the book available in?
The Circle Book One of The Sidhe and The Choice Book Two of The Sidhe are both available in print and Kindle versions.

What advice do you have for other writers?
Join a critique group and run your manuscript through the group. Pay attention to suggestions and comments then edit as you feel is appropriate. After all, it is your story.

Who is you favourite character in your book and why?
Donnelly Dunbar - no doubt. I love his intensity and devotion to his family. Oh, and the fact that he liberated himself from the darkest faerie clan of all.

Why do you think readers are going to enjoy your book?
The Sidhe series is one that strikes a chord with adults and young adults. There are 68 reviews posted on Amazon, and all of those were written by adults. Fantasy readers of all ages will enjoy The Circle, The Choice, and the other books in The Sidhe series.

Who designed the cover?
Karri Klawiter.

Where can a reader purchase your book?

What is your work in progress? Tell us about it.
I am currently writing the third book in The Sidhe series. In The Lost, Calum and his friends are in the 8th grade, and the stakes are getting higher. I like to include real places in my stories (Fairy Stone Park, VA in The Circle, the Brown Mountain, NC in The Choice). The Lost has an equally mysterious and factual setting.
