Author Interview – SM Boyce


Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why? Yep. My fellow Caffeinated Books Publishing author Nikki Jefford is incredibly talented. Her books focus on paranormal fantasy and urban fantasy, and all 5 of her novels have sparked my imagination. I don’t usually go fan girl, but she has me wrapped around her finger.

What contributes to making a writer successful? Patience and an understanding of what success means. Success is entirely subjective, and my definition is probably starkly different from yours. The key is not only to understand your definition of success, but to also understand why you define it as success. For more, check out my Writer’s Corner.

Do you have any advice for writers? Loads. But the short version: rejection is a part of our industry, so grow thick skin and learn to take criticism. Check out my Writer’s Corner, where I encourage authors who want to learn from the successes and failures of published authors and industry specialists.

What do you do to unwind and relax? Reddit. I especially like the TheTruthIsHere and UnsolvedMystery subreddits.

If you could leave your readers with one bit of wisdom, what would you want it to be? Have fun and enjoy yourself. Life is far too precious to take everything seriously.

“The writing is flawless. The kingdoms and surrounding landscapes breathtaking. The Grimoire is a piece of imaginative genius that bedazzles from the moment Kara falls into the land of Ourea. – Nikki Jefford, author of the Spellbound Trilogy

Now an international Amazon bestseller. Fans of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and Eragon will enjoy this contemporary remix of the classic epic fantasy genre.


Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things: Ourea.

Kara, a college student still reeling from her mother’s recent death, has no idea the hidden world of Ourea even exists until a freak storm traps her in a sunken library. With nothing to do, she opens an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire and unwittingly becomes its master, which means Kara now wields the cursed book’s untamed power. Discovered by Ourea’s royalty, she becomes an unwilling pawn in a generations-old conflict – a war intensified by her arrival. In this world of chilling creatures and betrayal, Kara shouldn’t trust anyone… but she’s being hunted and can’t survive on her own. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn’t know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.

For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this human girl, there is something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.

Welcome to Ourea, where only the cunning survive.
