Oracle of Delphi Blog Tour - Author Interview and Giveaway!

Author Interview

Diantha Jones 


Hi Diantha! Welcome to the blog!
When did you start writing?

I've been writing since my early teens, but I only realized I was pretty good at it in college. It wasn't until after I graduated that I even seriously thought about pursuing a (fiction) writing career.

What was your inspiration for The Oracle of Delphi series?

The idea of another reality. Not that I actually believe that there is any other reality but this one, but just the idea of it is enough to make me smile. I have a pretty wild imagination and the lure of creating my own world complete with Greek gods, monsters and heroes was just too tempting to resist. Plus, I really love Greek mythology. It's just so fascinating!

What three words would you use to best describe The Oracle of Delphi series? 

Exhilarating. Fierce. Romantic. 

What are your favourite things about Chloe Clever?

She's snarky and very protective of her loved ones. From the beginning, Chloe always talked back to the gods. Now, she's pretty much uncontrollable. She stands up to them for her family and friends and all of those who are unable to stand up to the gods themselves. I just love her and with every book, that love grows.

How many books will there be in The Oracle of Delphi series?

There are five main novels (three are already published) and three novellas (one is published).
Prophecy of the Most Beautiful (March 2012)
Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise (November 2012)

Prophecy of Solstice's End (July 2013)
Prophecy of the Betrayed Heir (September 2014)
Prophecy of the Eternal Empire (July 2015)
Solar, Defeated (February 2013)
Hero, Cursed (March 2014)
Son, Lost (February 2015)

Can you tell us about your other books? 

Outside of the Oracle of Delphi series, I've released the first three short stories in a suspense mini series called “Unknowing”. Then, under the pen name A. Star, I've written an adult alien romance called “Invasion”.

Can you tell us what you’re working on at the moment? 

Sure. As Diantha Jones, I'm currently outlining my next big, top-secret fantasy series. As A. Star, I'm currently writing the first book in the Love & Steampunk series, called “Wish for Me”, as well as working on a shifter anthology called Purr Inc.

Other than your own, what are your favourite books?

I adore JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series and Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Also, Katy Evan's “Real” was to die for and an Indie author that I'm into now, DT Dyllin, wrote this really great book called “Feeling Death”. It was freaking awesome.

Random Questions
-          what’s your favourite treat?
French fries!
-          What’s your Favourite place to read/write?
