Author Spotlight - Reyna Hawk






Today we welcome Reyna Hawk, Author of 'Looking Through Blind Eyes', which Erin and I reviewed earlier this week. To read the review click here!  Thank you Reyna for supplying Erin and I a copy of your novel for review!




What is your book about?
The book concerns a brother and sister, Janie and Daniel Valentine. It follows them as they move from a small town in Louisiana to Los Angeles; and Daniel’s involvement with Organized Crime. As the story unfolds with its twists and turns Janie’s life is rocked when Daniel mysterious comes up missing. She finds herself deep into connections with the Petrilo Crime Family by falling in love with the “Big Boss’s” Assistant. However, this new found happiness is shattered when she realizes the truth of her brother’s disappearance and that she has been placed on the Petrilo’s hit list.


Why did you decide to write it?
This is something I have worked on sporadically over the last 15 or so years. Back then it was much more difficult to get a book published without an agent. With the changes in the internet and self-publishing companies it has become easier. I have always loved writing and story-telling; I decided to take all those thoughts, put them on paper and send them out for others to enjoy.


How did you get your book published?
I did a lot of research before settling with Outskirts Press. They are a self publishing company and have really been great. I will be using them for my additional books in this series. The only way that would change is if I get picked up by a literary agent.


What types of readers will be interested in your book?
I think this will appeal to a wide variety of the adult audience. Men will like it due to the suspense and drama, whereas women will also like the romantic aspect of it.


What is special about your book?  What differentiates it from other books in the same category? 
My book is special and different from others because of the variety of its genre. It’s not strictly a crime, drama, or romance novel. It touches on many real life subjects that the readers will be able to understand and relate to. Also, the fact it appeals to a wide adult audience; not just one particular age group.


Have you published any other books?  Do you plan to publish more?
This is my first publication. However it is book one in a series of three books. I am currently working on the second book of this series titled “The Reflection of Secrets” which is coming soon. I also have other books in the works that are not of this series.
