“The Werewolf King” By Blair Cahill


Let’s dive into the interview with the author to know the journey behind “The Werewolf King”:

Can you tell us a little about your book?

The book, The Werewolf King, the first in a series of books, is a fantasy book.

The series revolves around a couple and their family. The two main characters have faced a

a lot of difficulties in their respective pasts and in this particular book, they strive to help the

lead female overcome her past issues and help her heal and grow into the person she is

destined to become.

Is there a specific event that inspired this story or was this an out-of-the-blue idea?

I had a dream about Avalyn once. In it, she was held captive. She looked utterly broken and

kept hoping that someone would come to save her. I remember waking up thinking that there

was more to this story and was disheartened to have woken up before knowing how it

ended. So, I decided to write the story myself and give it a satisfying ending.

What got you writing in the first place?

When I was young, my mother used to tell me bedtime stories every night. Eventually, she

ran out of new stories to say to me and motivated me to come up with stories myself and then

narrate them to her. Those are one of my fondest childhood memories.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before I started writing those stories.

What was your impression of your first draft when you read it?

There’s no easy way to say this. I cringed reading it.

What makes your book the one to read?

Love and romance are integral parts of my novel but it is more than that. It is about self-

love, exploring and knowing yourself, accepting yourself the way you are, and being at

peace with yourself. Throw in supernatural beings, magical powers, action, and drama, my book becomes the one you must read.

What was the best advice you got while writing?

The best advice I received was to keep going. Most writers start writing and even get halfway but don’t actually finish anything. It is usually because of a lack of motivation or because they think that what they wrote wasn’t good enough. But if they believe in themselves even a little bit and power through the tough days, they too can write a novel.

Who’s your all-time favorite author? Which book of his/hers made you fall in love

with them?

My all-time favorite author is Ninya Tippett. Her book Mischievous Mrs. Maxfield was one of the first books I read that made me think that she was an amazing author.

What is your evergreen tip to the writers out there?

Don’t care about what others think or say about your work, especially your initial works. If

you have a story to tell, don’t let anyone stop you. The only one you have to satisfy and

make happy is yourself.

What was your hardest scene to write?

The hardest scenes to write were Avalyns nightmares. Getting in her headspace and going back to such a hard time in her life was challenging. I also wanted to do justice to her

sufferings which made those scenes quite hard to write emotionally.

Do you have another plot brewing?

I do! The Werewolf King is just the first book of many. I have stories of like the next 4 books

in my mind. Check out what I’m up to on my website. (add link)
