Blog Tour: Colour Wielders by Dawna Raver; Interview + Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the tour for Colour Wielder by Dawna Raver, hosted by Bewitching Book Tours.
Check out my interview and the giveaway!

Colour Wielders (Heirs of the Magykal Realm series #1)
Author: Dawna Raver
Genre: New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Word Count: 133k
Behind the Mysts, hidden from Mortal eyes, is a land where Gods and creatures of myth and legend dwell. And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess lives.
Quinn Sinclair is clueless to who she is. She thinks she's an ordinary young woman—well, mostly ordinary—living an ordinary life with her less than loving mother in Conifer, Colorado. On the night of her birthday, Quinn finds herself betrayed by a man who sends her life spinning out-of-control.
As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she finds herself transported into a Magykal battle forever changing her life.
Arik Morgaine—demi-god bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm—tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn Sinclair for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans. Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers. Can the two of them come together and save the Magykal Realm from being destroyed by the Darkest of Magyks, or will powers beyond their control destroy them and their world forever?

Share 4 fun facts each about yourselves!
I love NFL Football. In fact, I count the day until preseason starts.
I love to cook.
I love alternative rock music.
Some days, I think eating ice cream for dinner is perfectly acceptable.

Do you have any little rituals for when you’re writing, or anything that helps you concentrate?
Not really. Though I'll admit that I love writing with ABC Family is showing the Harry Potter movies. I always feel inspired. And, because I've seen them a billion times, they're good background noise.

How did you begin building the fantasy world Colour Wielders is set in?
I thought to myself how cool it would be in there was world where all mythical pantheons existed and hung out together. That's where it started. Though in Colour Wielders you only meet gods from Celtic and Norse myths, I'd venture to say others will pop up in the coming books.

If Colour Wielders was made into a movie, who would you choose to cast as Quinn and Arik?
Arik is easy, that would Alexander Skarsgard. He's my muse. :D. Quinn I don't have an actress in mind.

What books have inspired you the most in your life?
Well, I'd have to say Harry Potter for sure. Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and David Eddings Belgariad series.

Can you share a little bit about what you’re working on at the moment?
I'm writing book 2 of the Heirs of the Magykal Realms series, titled Severed Colours. I'm pretty sure it will be out by the end of the year.
