Charlene A. Wilson ~ Aumelan - Blessed of the Gods ~ Interview




I’m thrilled to have my friend and fellow author Charlene A. Wilson featured this week. She’s here to chat about her newest story Aumelan ~ Blessed of the Gods, a romantic Sci-Fi/Fantasy (not erotic) and her story-stars, Chad, Salana and Dae: )


Charlene, so glad you’re here and can’t wait to hear all about your new story: ) So, without further delay, here’s a bit more about Charlene and then on to the interview…




Charlene A. Wilson is an author of tales that take you to other dimensions. She weaves magic, lasting love, and intrigue to immerse you into the lives of her characters.

She began writing in her early teens when her vivid dreams stayed with her long after she had them. The characters and worlds were so amazing she brought them to life through her books.

Charlene resides in a small community in Arkansas, USA, with her two beautiful daughters, husband, a cuddly Pekingese, and a very chatty cockatiel named Todder.



Please tell us how the idea came to you for Aumelan ~ Blessed of the Gods. Please include all the fun details.


The core of Aumelan is at least 35 years old. Yes, you got that right… 35. As with some of my other stories, Aumelan was presented to me in a dream. Snippets of these dreams are littered throughout the book! I’ve known Chad, Salana and Dae practically my whole life, and I’m thrilled to see them alive now and experiencing all they deserve with others to share in their antics.


What drives, motivates, and/or inspires Chad?

Chad is a dreamer, an idealist who wants to make a change in his world but doesn’t always go about it the best way. But this time Fate is on Chad’s side, he knows it.


What’s Salana’s job? What does she do for a living?

Salana is a Daughter of the Sun Nation, their equivalent of royalty.


Give us some insight into Salana. What’s a bit of her back story?

Salana’s parents’ marriage was arranged to bring peace between two nations. It didn’t achieve all they had hoped, as the Sun Nation still doesn’t treat her mother very kindly. So, Salana’s parents are gone much of the time, visiting the outlying territories and offering support for causes. Salana is essentially raised by her nanny, Nina, and over protective master of Security, Khort. While she loves them dearly, she longs for the friendships she knows others have while attending Sun City University. By chance, she meets Chad there.


Tell us what Chad first means to Salana?

Chad is a shock to Salana when they first meet. He called her by her first name and that’s completely unacceptable. But she can’t get him out of her mind.


Who is Salana to Chad? Can you give us a bit about the first time they meet each other?

As far as Chad is concerned, Fate place Salana in that class room at the time he happened to come to meet the professor. She knows how the Sun Nation works, and she’ll know where to find answers and solutions to his people’s need to take energy from a host to survive. If he can solve that, they could set the slaves used as hosts free!


What are you working on now?

I’m working on book three of my Cornerstone Deep series, Destiny. I hope to have it out in May.


What tip or advice would you give to an aspiring author?

“Believe in the magic that’s in you, its potential, what it can achieve. But most of all, believe in yourself and create a world where reams become reality.”


Where can we find you? List all of your links.

Fascinated by Myth, Legend, and Lore? Shari Nichols Guest Post



Hello everyone – Shari Nichols, author of Witch Hunter, a paranormal erotic romance, is hanging out this weekend – sharing her thoughts on Myth, Legend, and Lore…get ready to hear all about witches, vampires, ghosts…and you name it: ) So glad to have you back, Shari…you’re up, front and center…


By Shari Nichols

Are you into the paranormal, fascinated by myth, legend, and lore? I grew up in a small town in Connecticut where haunted houses, ghosts and Ouija boards were commonplace. I’ve always been fascinated with the strange and the unexplained for as long as I can remember and not just ghosts and vampires, but mermaids, UFO’s, Big Foot and witches … especially witches. 

The legend of the sexiest most alluring creatures known to man, those that have the power to ensnare the mind and bewitch the body still fascinate readers today. Over one hundred years after Bram Stoker penned the first Dracula novel, vampires are still part of our pop culture. TV shows like True Blood and the Vampire Diaries remind us of the allure of the sexy blood suckers that continue to capture our imagination and rev our libidos.



The legend of "Dracula" was based on a true Romanian Prince named Vlad Tepes, a ruthless warrior who slaughtered his enemies in cruel and heinous ways, earning him the nickname Vlad the Impale. Eventually, he was killed by the Turks, the very people he brutalized. In the end, his head was presented to the Sultan as proof of his death and his body buried in a monastery. Many years later when his tomb was opened all that was found was a pile of horse bones … hmmm Dracula indeed.




Some of my favorite legend and lore surrounds the mystical practice of witchcraft. Witches have often been depicted as evil crones possessed by the devil. Many were tortured, hanged, burned alive and in some cases stoned to death.  For hundreds of years, witches have been portrayed in many forms, from the wrinkled old woman who was possessed by the devil, to the young beautiful sorceress who could enchant a mere mortal.




When the Harry Potter books and movies came out I was hooked. I read every book four times and then reread them with my daughter. JK Rowling‘s tales of potions making, spells and enchantments has become so epic and genius that she has literally created an entire world with her novels. I’m still obsessed with witches, and even made my heroine in Book 1 of my Ravens Hollow series a witch. 



Determined MBI (Magickal Bureau of investigations)agent Alex Denopoulos will stop at nothing to catch a killer, including recruit notorious felon, Willow McCray to work for the agency. The lines between duty and passion become blurred the more time he spends with the sultry witch. In the midst of the investigation, they succumb to the dark edges of desire, placing both their lives in danger. Alex will risk more than his badge to keep her alive.




Kick-ass witch Willow must use her powers for good if she wants to stay out of Hellios, a mage prison for those who have broken the Wiccan Rede of ‘Harm ye None.’ Willow never expects to fall so hard for Alex, a mortal with a penchant for justice and a deep seated hatred of witches. Though a future together seems impossible, she doesn’t want to let him go. If only she can vanquish the evil surrounding them and give Alex what he wants, her mind and body-before she loses her heart and maybe her very soul in the process.
