Interview: R.S. Broadhead Author of Chosen

Please welcome R.S. Broadhead, author of the supernatural thriller Chosen

Why did you write this story?

 I wanted to do something a little more on the freaky side to release in October because Halloween is my favorite holiday! I love a good scare, and the concept of black-eyed children is beyond creepy to me. I thought it would be a good Urban Legend to start out with since that one terrifies me the most.

What do your plans for future projects include? 

I have several projects that I’m working on. Next year I hope to release the last Realms of Darkness book. It will be a bittersweet day for sure! In January a contemporary romance will release, a fantasy set in the fae world will come out in summer, and a second book to the Urban Legends series. It will either be based on Bloody Mary or the Hook Man.

How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have? 
Currently, I think about 7 books in process. Hopefully, some of them will be finished soon!
What’s the most effective way, you’ve found, to market your book? 
Taking advantage of the 5 free days that Amazon offers, for sure! I just recently used my days and wow! I saw a huge surge in sales and page reads. I wish I had tried it earlier.

Tell us about the cover and how it came about. 

So I went through a bunch of images online that I purchased with the intention of using them as teasers. Those sat on my computer for about a year until I found my designer. Regina Wamba was someone that I’ve been wanting to work with since I first saw her work. She is so insanely talented. I sent her the images and told her I wanted to scare the hell out of people with this cover. She didn’t disappoint. This cover turned out to be exactly what I wanted.

Where can readers find you online? 

I mainly chat with readers on Facebook, but I also have Twitter and Instagram. My pages are:

Title: Chosen: (The Urban Legends Series)
Author: R.S. Broadhead
Publication Date: October 24th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Supernatural, Thriller

Black eyes. No emotion. No sympathy. Only emptiness.

Piper McAdams’s life was normal. Career? Check. Boyfriend? Check. Friends? Check. One unsettling run in with a homeless man turns everything from normal to terrifying. She begins seeing…things.

Things she can’t seem to explain or make any sense.

As if things aren’t already getting out of hand, Piper receives news that the only family member she has is dead. She thinks maybe a trip across the country to her hometown will get her away from all the strange events happening.

After a late night accident, Piper isn’t in her hometown burying her loved one. She’s in a town called Hell. All she wants to do is leave, but the people seem to be holding her there for some reason.

A reason she feels threatens her life. Around every corner things become darker and scarier.

Can she escape what is coming for her?

R. S. Broadhead lives in Jackson, Alabama with her husband of ten years, their two little girls, and a pug named Wednesday Love the Duchess, or Winnie for short. She has a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in business administration. She loves to snowboard, travel (Australia is her favorite place so far), and dance (not professionally, just whenever she feels like it). When she was sixteen-years-old, her and her friends would take pictures and make up funny stories about them. Fourteen years later, UNVEILED was born. UNVEILED, her first novel, is the first book in a four book series.
