Guest Post: Moving On! By April Fifer & Danielle Hylton-Outland
One of the main focuses for us when writing Flesh and Feathers was “moving on.” We would constantly remind ourselves to not dwell too long on one thing. For us, we like fast-paced drama.
There have been quite a few books we have read that just dragged on FOR . . . EVER. Not that they weren’t great books, we just prefer not being able to breathe in between scenes. On the other hand, we have read books that we couldn’t finish a paragraph before bouncing up and down; wanting to read what was going to happen next.
So when we wrote Flesh and Feathers, we kept saying, “moving on!” If we had to write an entire chapter on what Azaleigh ate for breakfast, we would have probably given up.
Don’t worry; we understand that “knowledge is power.” (Or so they say.)
So of course we had to list the facts. But we wanted to keep that to a minimum. And when the story is done . . . it’s done. Whether it be fifteen thousand words or fifty thousand.
Any story that can keep us on the edge of our seat and guessing is like Heaven! I do believe that paranormal and urban fantasy romance authors have this down to a tee. That’s why this genre is our favorite.
Azaleigh’s life is simple until, by chance, she meets Kale. Charming and handsome, Az is immediately drawn to him. But long kept secrets lurk in the hearts of those Az holds most dear, and dangerous plans are unfolding around her.
As her life begins to crumble and Kale disappears, Gage, charismatic and striking, arrives, providing a calm port in an increasingly violent storm. But with every narrow escape from a far from human bounty hunter who’s after her life, Az begins to unravel a secret with the power to change her forever.
In an increasingly hostile world of Angel and Fallen, Azaleigh must navigate her own path, chose her own side, and ultimately protect her heart. Faced with two gorgeous men, an enemy she doesn’t know, and a future she cannot understand, Az must make a choice—the man she loves, or the man she cannot live without.

April Fifer grew up in a small town in Virginia, where it was common practice believing that dreams could only be found in stories. At the age of seven she was diagnosed with dyslexia. She was told that she would struggle through life and would never pick up a book to read for pleasure. Although school was hard, she was able to find her way with the help of two teachers who taught her self-discovery. Ignoring what she was taught growing up, she turned it around and found that your dreams could become stories.
