Dariel's World

Hi. I'm Dariel Raye, an interracial/multi-cultural paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and psy/suspense author, and every day of this journey is a learning experience. I'm also a counselor, musician, and animal lover. My stories are about all-conquering love and romance, and I enjoy hosting other authors as well. Enter a world where werewolves, vampires, multi-shifters, vamp-like Nephilim, Vodouin Fey, and all things paranormal capture our hearts...

Dariel's Feature: Diantha Jones' "Oracle of Delphi Series" Interview and Reviews



1.     What 3 things would you like readers to know about you?
I'm snarky, impatient, and downright hilarious. No, really. I'm a hoot.

2.     What do you look for in a good book?
Fantastic characters. They don't have to be relatable either. They just have to be awesome.

3.     What are some of the best social media, marketing, and publicity tips you’ve come across?
Go online everyday. Tweet often. Blog at least three times a week. Invest in a good editor and do a blog tour/marketing campaign for every major release.

4.     Along that same line, what are some of your favorite resources?
The book blogs are still the best resource for me. They represent the readers, and if you want to know all about the literary happenings and stay on top of the trends, then you better follow at least sixty different book blogs, which I do.

5.     What lifts your spirits when you’re discouraged?
A glass of wine and a good book or movie always lifts my spirits when I'm down. Sometimes a phone call to a good friend does the trick too.

6.      Describe your ideal reader. What do they look for in books? What unique qualities do they find in your stories/writing?
My ideal reader has an elusive imagination that can't be controlled. They dream big and to them, fantasy is just a reality that hasn't been discovered yet.
