Interview with Bella Roccaforte, one of the Authors of Dark Moon Falls (Volume 2)
05 May 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, Dark Moon Falls (Volume 2)?
That’s a good question. Dark Moon Falls 2 is the second Boxset in the Dark Moon Falls world which was created by myself, and my ‘partner-in-crime’ Ava K Michaels while we were on vacation in Vegas. It’s a town high in the mountains of the Pacific North West but the town has secrets. One where hot Wolf Shifters pursue their one true mate, with romance, danger and intrigue a staple for every story, also there’s a coven of Witches and other supernatural beings in the stories, and the humans who live there are sometimes caught in the middle of the drama. We invite other authors to write in the world and publish the stories in a set first, for six months, then they can publish them independently. We’re very excited about releasing Volume 2, it’s packed with fantastic stories that’ll keep readers glued to the pages until the end. It’s 99c for release week only though, price will be going up soon.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I’ve always loved stories, they were my escape, and I have to say there’s some amazing storytellers out there … one who immediately springs to mind is George R R Martin. His mind and the way he writes is utterly amazing. A Song of Ice and Fire is out of this world!
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
A Song of Ice and Fire, of course! I also love reading indie author stories, I enjoy a wide range of genres, Monica La Porta’s Fifth Moon Wolf’s series, Elaine Barris’ Zane series, To Kill A Mockingbird is another, and I loved reading The Wind in the Willows to my kids.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
Hmm, I’d have to go with George R R Martin and I’d want to know how the heck he could keep track of everything he had going on in that epic story. I mean, the amount of twists, turns, and what not … I’d find it extremely difficult to do. Also, did he know when he started how it was going to turn out? Or, did he change things while he was writing? I do that sometimes, so I’d love to know if he did. Another question would be … did he like how they portrayed his story on-screen? Or not? There were differences to the books, so yeah, I’d like to know how he felt.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
Building suspense and intrigue and hopefully putting in a few twists that readers don’t see coming. My main aim is to produce something that people will enjoy, if I do that, then I’m happy.
What is a typical day like for you?
I don’t think there is a typical day for a writer. Characters can misbehave, or life gets in the way, or the kids can get sick, for me it’s a case of getting words in whenever I can. I do my best to juggle everything and get things done when I can. It can be hard at times, but I do what I can, when I can. Working and being a single mom has an impact on word count … so, it’s a ‘get it done whenever’ scenario.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
I like to think I do … Be kind and help one another… after all, at the end of the day, what would the world be like if we didn’t?
