~Author Bio~

Although born in the United States, Annamaria Bazzi spent a great picture for linkedIndeal of her childhood in Sicily, Italy, in a town called Sciacca. Italian was the language spoken at home. Therefore, she had no problems when she found herself growing up in a strange country.

Upon returning to the states, she promised herself she would speak without an accent.

She attended Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Computers with a minor in Spanish.

Annamaria spent twenty years programming systems for large corporations, creating innovative solution, and addressing customer problems. During those years, she raised four daughters and one husband. Annamaria lives in Richmond Virginia with her small family where she now dedicates a good part of her day writing.

~Synopsis~White Swans 3 Final Cover KDP

After attempting to accept her fate in the strange fishbowl world, Kendíka decides it’s impossible. Call her a pet, will they? Determination revived, she tempts her “master’s” fury by trying to make life better for the people of Deverow’s Duchy. She will bring technology to the Regency era or end up a swan trying.

Still longing for a higher station in her new existence, Jillian sets her sights on Harry, the Count of Paddington. The only problem? Getting the man to take notice of her. Perhaps discovering some common ground—besides their rabbit-like features—will do the trick.

Hi Annamaria and welcome! It’s great to have you here.

Thank you so much for hosting this tour stop.

Where did the inspiration behind the White Swans: Revelations come from?

As you know, Revelations is the third book in the series. The inspiration came when Brodrik presented himself as a less than desirable character, filled with resentment and cruelty. He was so interesting to me, I had to fit him into the story.

a simple matter of justiceHow would you compare writing this book  with writing A Simple Matter of Justice and Revelation of Abaddon?

Revelations is the third book in a series and there are more to follow. This book has an ending for the short story, but not for the series. It is a fairly easy plot to write. A Simple Matter of Justice is about a brutal rape and murder. It was very hard to write. Even Revelation of Abaddon was hard to write as I tried to bring across Mia’s yearning for pain

How did you start writing? Was there a particular book or moment in your life that revelation of adaddonspurned you on?

I was eight when I realized how much I enjoyed writing. I spent a lot of time writing little stories I used to read to my dolls.

How do you organize your writing time?

If I were organized when it came to my writing, I wouldn’t get stressed about the marketing side of being an indie author. Lately, I feel most of my time is spent getting ready for blog tours. I never realized how hard it would be to publish a short story every month and how much marketing would be involved. I do start my day tweeting.

white swan new girl in townWhere is your best ‘writing space’; the place where you feel comfortably locked away from the world and able to let your creative juices flow?

Physically, I want to be comfortable, so I take my laptop to the loveseat in the family room and I curl up and type away. My mind, though, is so much more comfortable when it buries itself into the world of daydreams where many of the ideas for my books come from.

And finally, tell us an interesting fact about yourself that not many people know.  white swan regency era

When I get together with my aunt, I love to talk in Sicilian because I don’t want to forget it.

 

Thank you for being here today Annamaria
