Friday 5: Suz Demello

Please welcome Suz Demello to the blog today. Thanks for joining us, Suz!

What kind of books do you read for fun?

Right now I’m really into Young Adult paranormal—stuff like Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Cassandra Clare. I love Libba Bray’s books, especially Going Bovine.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?


If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be?

Ten thousand wishes and a really hot guy.

What is best writing advice you can give?

Read excellent writing.

Can you share a little about your current release with us?
Sherlock's Scandal
Would love to, and thanks for the opportunity. Sherlock’s Scandal is Sherlock Holmes fanfic, which can be published now because courts have declared that the Holmes stories are public domain.

Here’s what it’s about:

Are you a Baker Street Irregular? Sherlock’s Scandal is a very irregular Sherlock Holmes tale, but who isn’t attracted to the tall, handsome Holmes as he stalks through the foggy streets of Victorian London, saving the day again and again?
Follow Sherlock as he woos and wins the elusive Irene Adler. Sherlock’s Scandal is a typical Suz deMello read: fast paced with a whole lot of kink!

And here’s where you can score a copy:
