Must be 18 years of age or older to enter.
So let's get to the interview! Ms. Pierce was kind enough to let us get to know her a little better. We all want to know more about the creative mind behind great stories like The Last Pyr of Eden.
***What’s your name and where do you come from?
Chacelyn Pierce and I hail from Dallas, TX
Tell us a bit about your latest release.
The pages of The Last Pyr of Eden come complete with vampiric Daemons, a forbidden love between elementals, a nearly extinct fire elemental race, and of course, a shapeshifting dragon. The Last Pyr of Eden has that and more, it is one of my most prized works that focuses on two individuals working together to stop the degrading of their species as a whole. Of course while falling for each other.
That sounds amazing, and I can't wait to get my hands on it! So when you're writing awesome stories like this, how do you go about creating the perfect "Swoon" worthy man?
Lots and lots of photos. I am a Tumblr addict and most of my male inspiration comes from there.
Ah yes. There's definitely a lot of eye candy out there to be found! *grin* When looking at all that wonderful man candy, getting ideas, what trait do you find the sexiest?
Eyes, I've always had a thing for bright, piercing eyes of unique shades.
What do you do to get in the mood for writing love scenes? Candles, music etc?
Wine, music, and muse-stimulating photos or spicy videos.
What do you do when you’re not writing?
Either working as a part-time groomer or creating something artistic in photoshop.
A groomer, really? I'm a groomer, too! lol Seriously. I've been grooming dogs since I was 18. =)
If you couldn’t be an author, and weren't grooming, what would your ideal career be?
When did you start to write?
Officially in 2009, though I had been dabbling in journalism, poetry, and short non-fiction stories all through high school.
What writer, if any, influenced how you write?
There are so many but my top three have to be Laurell K. Hamilton, Jim Butcher, and J.R. Ward. Laurell and Jim got the ball rolling, it was J.R. that kept me at it.
What are your favorite types of heroines? Do you like the damsel in distress who needs saving or the kick-ass variety? Why?
I love the kick-ass heroine. I like the chick that can go out and make the whole book about herself. As a fan of urban fantasy books, I tend to think the sassy heroine is the main thing that keeps me interested in the story.
Thank you so much, Ms. Pierce! That was certainly fun getting to know you better, and we love the ass-kicking heroines here, too! Some of your answers were quite interesting! *wink*

The Last Pyr of Eden (Hearts of Eden #1)
Outside the protected gates of Eden, ancient enemies lurk in waiting to drain elementals of all their power.
For eons, the four elementals have bled their nourishing blood to sustain life for superior spirit elementals known as Daemons. No race has suffered in despair as critically as the fire elementals—the Pyr. Their numbers dwindled down so miserably, that Raynor is the last known warrior of the race, living on a faint hope that there is more of his kind between both worlds. He ventures out constantly searching for elementals to save from enslavement. In reality, he searches for a female to bond with. After a yearlong trip away from Eden—an elemental settlement hidden deep in the woods—he is immediately confronted by the enchanting Sylph, Samira. She ignites desires and emotions in him that he considered long dead and nearly destroyed like his people. Indulging in his erotic cravings with Samira can be a daring game to play, because elementals have never intermingled in all recorded history.
