Alert on: Nicole Locke & The Knight's Scarred Maiden (Lovers and Legends) #Giveaway

This week the alert is on author Nicole Locke and her latest book, The Knight's Scarred Maiden (Lovers and Legends). And she has giveaway news!







Mercenary knight Rhain wanders the lands, fights for coin, and is haunted by his past. Then, in a wreck of an inn, he tastes a cake made sublime with honey, and rescues a woman he wants more than any sweet. But with a vengeful warlord pursuing him, he’s merely a dead man awaiting the sword.

Helissent’s family died in a tragic fire; and she bears the scars for all to see. When she’s forced from her home, she bargains with the traveling mercenaries to take her to a different town, even though, disfigured and shamed she survived when her family didn’t, she knows she’ll never have a better life.

Along the way, both Rhain and Helissent reveal their pasts, and begin to long for a future. But with the enemy pursuing them both, is it too late?

What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?

Sitting down and writing! I seem to have writer’s block every time I write. It’s not the inspiration or the storylines that holds me back, it’s something about me that just fears approaching the keyboard. Most of my stories are emotional journeys, and I think I feel the pain of my characters. The good bit is I also share in their happily-ever-afters. That’s the part that keeps me going!

Does your family support your career as a writer?

If there was more than 100 percent support, that would be my family. Not that they fully understand the process. My husband believes it’s all stuff I’m making up, so how can it be so difficult? And my children believe it’s funny when I’m right next to them typing, but tell them ‘I’m not here, go ask your dad.’ However, in the end, I couldn’t do this without them. Not even a little bit.


If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager to become a better writer as an adult, what would you do?

I would have taken more risks early on. These stories I’m writing I thought of years ago, but never had the courage to write them.

How long on average does it take you to write a book?


The first book took me years to write. The second one, because of contracts, mere months. Can I tell the difference between them? Not really. I can type fast when I type, but it’s that pesky avoiding the keyboard that gets me! So, there are days when I write nothing and others when I write 5k. I don’t recommend this process when you have too many stories to tell!
