Featured Book with Author Interview and Giveaway: Other Than by Mia Jo Celeste

We are super excited to be part of the Book Tour for OTHER THAN, a thrilling gaslamp fantasy by Mia Jo Celeste. The new audiobook version is now available. Check it out!
Other Than
Genre: Gaslamp Fantasy, Paranormal Historical Romance
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Publication Date: January 27, 2017
Other Than #PNR A purgatory as dangerous as Dr. Moreau’s Island with zombies and romance.
It only takes one drink from the Water of Immortality to kill Evie Woods—halfway. Trapped in undead flesh, the world’s last skin-slider wakens on an island purgatory where a cursed spring bubbles with immortality, and zombie cannibals crave living flesh.
Her only hope of escape rests in the hands of the one man who would see her fail. Bound to her by cords stronger than death, Lord Victor Lowell is both the man of her dreams, and her darkest nightmares. Contrary and intractable, Victor preys on others to maintain his angelic charisma and preternatural prowess. Drawn to the compellingly gallant and vulnerable soul behind his mercurial humors, Evie can only watch as protecting her forces Victor to sacrifice yet more of himself to the ancient evil long tethered to his soul.
Trapped in an ever-escalating war they can’t stop, Victor and Evie fight time for a cure, but as the long days pass blackness tears at Evie, ripping her thoughts from her one memory at a time. Victor will to do whatever it takes to prevent her from deteriorating into a rotting husk, even if it means dooming himself, but Evie won’t surrender his soul without a fight. Battle lines drawn, the soul mates resolve to find redemption or die trying.


We are pleased to have this exclusive interview with the author of Other Than, Mia Jo Celeste. Enjoy!
  1. Who is your favorite romance hero or heroine and why? What qualities do they possess that make them memorable?
    I can’t pick one. It changes depending on the book I’m currently reading. I just finished Pure by Julianna Baggott, so I’ll pick Pressia for my favorite heroine and Bradwell and El Capitan was my favorite heroes. I like Pressia’s determination, Bradwell’s loyalty to his friends and his beliefs and El Capitan’s character growth from villain to hero.
  2. Who was the first romance author and book you read?
    Kathleen E. Woodiwess’ The Wolf and the Dove.
  3. What do you hope readers take away from your work?
    That people can always turn over a new leaf and begin again. I’m a strong believer in second changes and in starting over, so many times my characters are on that journey. Most often, they succeed. We all have a broken place in our past and I write the story of its mending.
  4. What is your favorite hobby and why?
    Reading. I love stories.
  5. What was your inspiration for your stories?
    Oddly enough, real life. Stuff that happens to me and to others around me inspires ideas which become story material.
  6. How would you describe OTHER THAN in only three words?
    Rivetingly Dark Redemption
  7. What is your favorite amusement park ride?
    I love rollercoasters, especially sitting in the front seat. For a few seconds while you wait for the back of the coaster to get up to the top, you hang over the edge and get to look down at the track and far, far down it goes, before you plunge downward.
  8. Tea or coffee and how do you take it?
    I like hot tea. All different kinds. I’m always looking to add to my favorites.
  9. Hot dogs or Hamburgers?
    Hamburgers on the grill.
  10. Favorite all time movie?
    Star Wars. The first one.
  11. Chocolate or vanilla?
    Vanilla for ice cream. Chocolate for candy, cake and everything else.
  12. How many states have you lived in?
    I’ve only lived in three different states, but I lived in five different countries.
