Author Interview With Debbie Davies!

Here is an author interview with the amazing author Debbie Davies (author of Any Love But Mine) 


-          Tell us a little bit about yourself
Well my names Debbie and I’m 24, Any Love But Mine is my first novel and it was published on the same day that I got married. I live in the UK with my husband and baby boy Charlie, when I’m not reading or writing I am running around after my little monster! I love to read and I cannot put a book down if I get into – I will miss sleep to finish reading a book!

-          What was your inspiration for this book?
My inspiration was the myth between Eros and Psyche, I reread it a bunch of times and then kept imagining what would have happened if things had gone differently. From there I invented a whole new life for Eros which led to his Erosian’s which led to Acacia who the story is about.

-          When did you first start writing?
I always enjoyed writing at school but mainly wrote poetry, I stopped writing for a while when I left school and started work and then started writing again when I was at University. I actually started writing Any Love But Mine (which was then called Forbidden to love) whilst I was meant to be studying for my final year exams!

-          Are you interested in Greek mythology?
Yes, I love greek mythology! I love the stories, the beauty of everything, the extravagance and pretty much everything.

-          Which Greek goddess are you?
Hmm I’d quite like to be Athena the goddess of wisdom

-          Your age?
24

-          Is there a secret lovestory from your own life you wanna  share ? 
There may have been moments in my past which have inspired certain parts of Any love but mine but no I’m not going to give details away on what they were or who they involved!

-          Team Josh or Team Luca?
I’m team Luca but that doesn’t mean Acacia is going to end up with him

-          Are you currently working on any books? If so, what is it?
I am working on the sequel to Any Love But Mine

Thanks Debbie for your time!

Book Review - Any Love But Mine

Title: Any Love But Mine
Author: Debbie Davies
Pages: 297
Publisher: Night Publishing
Languages: English

Summary:
The gods forbade her to love, but love is a powerful force..

Acacia had been created purely for Eros' pleasure but discovers within moments of being summoend into his presence that he has no interest in her whatsoever.

Rejected, she is banished to Earth to serve as Eros' minion with the task of promoting the blissful state of love among all those around her, a state she must never indulge in with a human being herself on pain of immediate destruction.

And then comes Josh, some whose power of attraction over Acacia is so intense she will find it utterly impossible to resist him.

But is he human? Is he a God? Or is he a trick of the Gods?

And what would happen if they kiss?

My Opinion: 
Any Love But Mine, is a romantic fantasy story, that you will totally fall in love with. The book is sweet and just really adorable.

In the beginning, the book was a bit confusing and hard to read, but I hoped my questions would be answered later in the book. And as I expected, my questions got answered, and the book got easier to read. I just fell in love with the story.

I'm a person that likes to read action, so the thought of reading a love novel was strange, but the book was so exciting and heart touching that I couldn't stop reading it.

Any Love But Mine is exciting from the very beginning all to the end, and the love scenes are wonderful. I was sitting with a flag, cheering on the love pair, almost screaming 'KISS, KISS'

Even though it was a romantic book, it was also heartbreaking several times: you have to argue with yourself, to not take a sneak peek forward.

The writer manage to pull you into the book, and after a little while, you don't want to come out again, before you know the ending.

At the end, I will recommend this book to those how like romance.
And I give this book 5 stars.
