PHE - Interview with Yolanda Sfetsos + giveaway


Today I get go interview one of my favourite authors, Yolanda Sfetsos. Yolanda is wrapping up her Sierra Fox series (sadness!) now with A STITCH ON TIME and she's graciously come by to chat about the final book and offer up an e-copy for a lucky reader.

As always, a very warm welcome, Yolanda!

Welcome back to Team Tynga's Reviews, Yolanda! A STITCH ON TIME is the last book in Sierra's story. What can readers expect?

A Stitch On Time by Yolanda SfetsosThanks for having me over. It’s great to be here.

As for what readers can expect from the last book in my Sierra Fox series… Well, tears. I’m kidding. Okay, maybe I’m not kidding because this book is packed with sad stuff, revelations, danger, explosions, endings, and even some beginnings. But it’s not allsad stuff. I did sprinkle some happiness into the mix.

After everything that Sierra has been through, she certainly deserves something good to come out of this. I can’t wait for readers to experience how Sierra’s story ends.

Asides from everything else, the last book will offer closure.

Was writing A STITCH ON TIME emotional for you as a final book?

Writing this book was very emotional. I often had tears in my eyes because it was hard to get over some of the harsher things that happen. I even tried to convince myself to change some of the more devastating events. But I couldn’t. This is how the story ends.

Letting go was also very hard, but it’s time.

Do you have a favourite moment in the series?

I have a lot of favourite moments! But I especially liked when Sierra and Papan finally admit to each other that what’s going on between them is a lot stronger than friendship. I always get giddy when I reread that bit. ;)

Their interactions were some of my fave things about writing this series.

What's up next for you?

Dash by Yolanda SfetsosWell, now that I’ve finished one series, it’s time to move onto other stories.

The fourth book in my SFR RECAST series is called DASH, and will be released next year. So I’m really looking forward to sharing that story with readers. I’ve still got two more books left to write in this world. So I’ll soon be spending some time with a bunch of space pirates and a different type of fighter.

I’ve also got two Sierra Fox spin-off novels to write. Yeah, it’s hard to let go of the world completely. LOL. The first draft of one book is already written, and I would love to write the first draft of the other one during this year’s NaNoWriMo. They’ll both be urban fantasy, but won’t concentrate on spooks. The world opens up, and they’ll both be set in different locations. I had a great time with Lavie’s story, so I can’t wait to tackle the next one.

After that, there are several other projects I’d love to spend some time with. There’s a gritty futuristic UF, a cozy mystery, and a super spooky horror book fighting for my time. And that’s just a few of the loudest ideas fighting for my attention. 

And now for some event questions:

What's Halloween like in Australia?

It’s definitely a little dull compared to North America. Sure, there’s plenty of Halloween-themed stuff available to buy, but the vibe isn’t the same. It’s spring here, so the days are longer and the spooky, cooler weather factor is totally missing. Not to mention that kids rarely go trick or treating in Sydney. 

What's your favourite Halloween memory?

I enjoyed introducing my daughter to the concept of Halloween when she was old enough to understand. It was something I always celebrated on my own, so it was nice to get my daughter into it too.

If you could get any costume, who/what would you dress up as?

Great question! I think I’d love to wear Sierra’s costume. Or maybe Willow’s. But I can’t tell you what these costumes are because it would totally spoil the story. ;)

Here's the scoop on A STITCH ON TIME:

A Stitch On Time by Yolanda Sfetsos

All it takes is a little death and mayhem to make a spook catcher’s day.

Sierra Fox, Book 5

Sierra Fox has finally inherited her grandmother’s power to destroy demons, but what good is it when her werewolf boyfriend still lies in a coma? Worse, the decision she’s about to make could save him—but ruin their relationship.

If that’s not enough bad stuff on her plate, she’s got a soul to save—the soul of her closest friend, killed by the Lamia that got away.

Another untasty side dish: The Obscurus refuse to give up their relentless pursuit, and they’ve upped the ante. Mace is dead set on blowing up the Spook Catcher Council Tower, and the blowback will have devastating effects on Sydney and for Sierra. At least these demon-obsessed freaks aren’t counting on Sierra having a Goddess and a trusty demonic conduit as backup.

All of this leads to a one-way ride into the abandoned part of town, where the Obscurus plan to summon Legion. With her demon hunter friend by her side, Sierra prepares for the final battle…because even she knows this will be The End.

Warning: Phantasms, wraiths, orbs, demons, all guaranteed to ruin any spook catcher’s day. But you can always count on werewolves, land spirits, and a Goddess. Beware of explosions, demonic obsessions, and the battle that will tip the scales and change Sydney forever.
