Q&A with Author R.G. Angel- Part 2
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • Umm. What I like about Standalones is that it allows you to visit something once and you don’t get bored – You get diversity but sometimes you realize that you may have had more to say or side characters to develop but you have to settle. What I enjoy when I write a series is I get to develop the world in unexpected ways. For example when I started The Patricians series I didn’t expect Antoine (one of the side characters) to capture my heart and then I knew I had to share his story. I like this element and it is the same here in The Cosa Nostra series I’m working on. I have three books to develop the world and I’m excited! But it is true that sometimes you can get a little bored or tired of a world and want to try something else.
  • Have any of your characters ever appeared in your dreams?
    • Yes, I’m working on a steamy Mafia standalone series right now and I have to admit that Luca, Dom and Andrea are haunting my dreams these days…..;)
  • What’s your favorite:
    • Food – Cheese!
    • Song: Oh that’s a tough one! It all depends on the genre but I do love Show Must Go on by Queen.
    • Book: I can’t pick one sorry! I read too much all the time.
    • Television show: I am TV addict I can’t pick but here are a few of my favorites: Buffy, Schitt’s Creek, Psych, Charmed, Friends, House Md….
    • Movie: Shawshank Redemption, The Other Guys and quite a few more.
    • Band: Queen
    • Sports team: The team with the hottest guys? Ah sorry I don’t watch sports.
    • City: I don’t have a favorite city – I would like to explore the world but I do dream to visit New York one day.
  • Are any of those things referenced in appearance in your work?
    • Yes! Schitts Creek, Queen and cheese, lots of cheese lol.
  • What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors?
    • To not give up and follow your own path. Don’t compare yourself to other authors out there. Some will hit it big after one book, others after 20 – It’s your story you’re living – the plot is different but it is still a success. Just write and see how it goes.
  • Do you have any tips for authors going through the process of turning their books into audiobooks?
    • Make sure you research the market and the indie publishing behind audiobooks as it can get quite complicated and is quite different from the books market. I was lucky to be working with very experienced narrators who helped me understand the market better and make informed choices.

 

I’m a trained lawyer, world traveller, coffee addict, cheese aficionado, avid book reviewer and blogger.

I consider myself as an ‘Eclectic romantic’ as I love to devour every type of romance and I want to write romance in every sub-genre I can think of.

When I’m not busy doing all my lawyerly mayhem, and because I’m living in rainy (yet beautiful) Britain, I mostly enjoy indoor activities such as reading, watching TV, playing with my crazy puppies and writing stories I hope will make you dream and will bring you as much joy as I had writing them.

A Beauty So Cruel
Beena Khan
(Beauty & The Beast #1)
Publication date: February 14th 2021
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

I was a beauty, a stray orphan until the beast took me as his hostage.

Once upon a time…
A Don by the name of Vlad Vitalli ruled New York. He’s a mafia man. The leader of one of the ruling families, La Cosa Nostra. He’s a monster. A trained killer and a cold-blooded murderer. Tall, mysterious, with icy gray eyes, and he rarely smiles. His smile was made to fool any girl. He’s ruthless, cold, dangerous, and wants to kill me.

I was the wrong person at the wrong time.
Just an innocent at the masquerade ball. The mafia has rules: no witnesses left behind. To save my life, I made a deal with the beast. I handed myself to the cruelest man in the kingdom.

For him, It was supposed to be an easy kill. I’m an orphan raised in poverty. No one would have missed me. Just as the Don Vlad was about to order the hit, I threw off my masquerade mask, revealing my face, and offered myself to him. One look and I was doomed. He took me as his hostage. His captive. He didn’t know by taking me, Dahlia Hadid, he sealed his own fate.

Welcome to New York’s Underworld.
Loosely based on the fairytale.

A Beauty So Cruel

Excerpt:

After a few moments, Gabriele turned to look at Vlad. “You think that’s the best decision? The girl has seen our faces,” he said quietly, jerking his head in her direction.

Vlad dismissed his concerns immediately. “I don’t care.”

She’s just a kid.

“Dahlia heard our names and saw our faces, yet you didn’t let her walk free,” Gabriele accused him.

Vlad’s eyes narrowed down at his cousin, but Gabriele’s expression didn’t match his tone, it was playful and teasing.

“Mind your own damn business,” Vlad scoffed at him.

Gabriele shrugged in response. Then, his expression turned serious. “Have you touched her, Brother?” Gabriele called Vlad brother privately, since they were blood relatives.

Vlad only frowned, not taking the bait.

Gabriele chuckled then, his eyes lighting up. “You haven’t touched her.”

It was a statement now, not a question.

“You talk too much,” Vlad shot at Gabriele, shoving his hands inside his pants.
Gabriele’s smirk widened now. “Why not though? I mean, she is…pretty.” Then, he raised his eyebrows as if egging Vlad on.

Rage filled Vlad’s heart before he turned on Gabriele, but his cousin didn’t cower before him. He didn’t fear Vlad like the others did since they had grown up together. They didn’t hurt their own blood.

“Look at her again, and I will rip your eyes out,” Vlad growled at him, losing his cool.

Gabriele raised his hands in surrender, yet he was still smiling. “I’ve never seen you so affected by a girl before.”

Vlad pressed his lips together before growling again, “You’re lucky you’re my blood.” Then, he turned his back on Gabriele, heading toward his car.
