Today I welcome back Janine Ashbless to my blog with her conclusion of the Watchers Trilogy. She has most generously answered my questions about The Prison of the Angels and I’m delighted to be hosting her!
How long have you been writing for?
I started writing in 2006 quite late in life, having not done any creative writing since my school days, which was many years ago! I was inspired to take up writing by a dungeon mistress I served for a number of years who was skilled at creating scenes, assuming different characters and improvising. Initially the stories I wrote would get woven into the sessions this imaginative dominatrix conducted. After a few years, I thought my stories deserved a wider audience so I began contributing them to the Literotica writing site. Then I went a step further and began submitting stories to publishers and had some accepted. My first published work was the story ‘Lord Nano’s Nemesis’, about a ghostly highwaywoman, which appeared in the Xcite anthology Dark Desires in 2011. Since then I’ve had a book and numerous short stories and novellas published, Mistress Of The Air being my second full length novel.
When the opportunity to review Janine Ashbless’s sequel to Cover Him With Darkness came up, I was delighted. I enjoyed Cover so much and have been eagerly waiting to find out what happens next to Azazel and Milja since I finished reading it – Janine left us with a gasp at the end of it, and does the same thing here again! Which really just goes to show how good she is at her craft.
I am delighted to have Janine Ashbless back here on my blog. The first time was for Cover Him with Darkness, a dark erotic romance novel about angels (you can read that interview again or indeed for the first time). I enjoyed Cover Him With Darkness so much that when the opportunity to read the next in the series and grill Janine about writing it I leapt at it (though I worry I got too enthusiastic and probing in my questions, but Janine has been a most gracious interviewee – thank you!)
