In the Fading Light

In the Fading Light by Tara Brown
YA Fantasy
Published: 2014

Separated by a curse but bound by love.

In the fading light of the night, their eyes meet where their lips cannot. It is a single second that sustains their love.
From the moment her eyes met his, Estelle Dumont was captivated. Her heart would always be his.

But Edmond Lamont’s heart wasn’t entirely hers. He had been in love once before, tricked by the fair beauty of an Encantado named Lisle.

Desperate to rid themselves of the curse she placed upon them, they must decide just how far they are willing to go. They must decide if their love is more important than their lives.

But how far is too far and what cost is too much?

Interview with Tara Brown

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your book, In the Fading Light.
In the Fading Light is a book that was inspired by the cover. I saw the picture and instantly knew the story. It was a little random but that's me to a T. I'm a spazz, listening to a song one minute and making a story up from it the next. I get inspired by so many things, probably why I write so many genres and different stories. This one has been interesting for me. It runs along a similar line to Lady Hawk, 80's movie I adored. Very supernatural and paranormal and magical. Essentially if I say anything I'll give it all away lol. My books are so clandestine, but how else can I screw with your mind? I am a Canadian author, one of like what—nine lol. We are a small group led by Margaret Atwood and Kelly Armstrong. I am married to a federal police officer, so my life revolves around moving around Canada with him. Sucks for my work but he wears a uniform so that makes up for it. I have two daughters who are everything. They are my homies for chick night and all fans of Mr. Darcy. If I had to pick people to take to Austenland with me, they would be on the list. They are clutching to me while we watch scary movies, eating our popcorn and ready to cry any second and then doing rock climbing and making me be the anchor for them as they scramble higher than I am comfortable with. We have a strong family and I want them to be strong like the kick ass girls in my stories.

Where did you get the idea for In the Fading Light?
The cover, it is exactly the story. A girl in a dress made of raven feathers.

Are any of your characters based on people you know?
No. This one is all Tara's Fifty Shades of Cray brain.

Do you have a favourite genre to write? Or one that you think would be interesting to try?
I am slowly working my way through them all lol. Again, I'm a spazz. I want Aliens next. More so than Imaginations was.

Where's your favourite place to go for inspiration?
The mall or the movies and just people watch. Sounds weird but it works for me. Or sometimes just a drive in the country or some hot yoga can clear my brain.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Italy. My family is Italian and I love the food, wine, and people, so I have to assume I'll love the country. After that Iceland. My husband is Icelandic.

Any parting words of wisdom?
Just keep writing. It's what I tell everyone who asks. Don't stop and focus on one story, just write and see what comes out.


Thank you Tara for the fabulous interview!

Author Bio - Tara Brown

Tara-BrownI am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird.
I am a Bestselling author of Contemporary and Paranormal Romance but my true passion is my Post Apocalyptic and Fantasy novels. I write a lot of books and jump Genres a lot. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing.
I write New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy!

I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order.

I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis.
I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time.

Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride.
