Interview w/Author D.T. Dyllin. #DiamondStateRomanceAuthor #BentonSigningEvent #ArkansasAuthor

Dyllin, along with a few other Diamond State Romance Authors, will be participating in a signing event in Benton, AR on June 18th at the Hastings on Military Road. 
You can see who all will be attending and get more infomation on the event HERE

D.T. Dyllin is a bestselling author who writes both paranormal and contemporary romance. Anything with a love story is her kryptonite. Her obsession with affairs-of-the-heart is what first drove her to begin twisting her own tales of scorching romance. 

D.T. was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Black & Gold for life, baby!) She now lives in Little Rock, Arkansas with her husband and two spoiled German Shepherds.

*What would you be doing right now if you were not an author?
~Wow. This is a tough question. If I wasn’t an author right now I’d probably be trying to figure out what to do with my life. Seriously … I don’t have an answer. I’d probably be swinging wildly from one existential crisis to another. After all, that’s what my Hubs says I do in between projects so I imagine not much would change. Heh. 

*5 years ago: what were you doing?
 ~I was writing my first novel, Hidden Gates, and living in Nashville, TN. So basically, five years ago, my writing journey finally began.

*Do you have a certain writing ritual?
 Eating lots of chocolate. That’s not really a ritual but I need it to create … and exist. I just need chocolate. Period. I’d shrivel up and die without it. No joke.

*What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author?
 ~I’m pretty good with criticism. I actually deal better with being criticized than being praised, weirdly enough. So there isn’t a particular criticism that sticks out in my head enough to mention. Bad reviews and hate fire me up to do better. Although it does suck when I get attacked personally. I imagine no one’s a fan of that though.

*Ever fangirled over another author? Who was it?
 ~I don’t fangirl on the outside. I’m one of those people who could be squealing on the inside but doesn’t react outwardly. I’m very self-contained. So, no, I’ve never fangirled over an author, or anyone for that matter. LOL

*Is there an author you'd like to meet?
~Mmm … I’ve already met most of the authors that I’ve wanted to meet … those who are living anyway. So I’m going to say Bram Stoker. That would be very interesting. I’d have lots of questions. ;)

*Biggest writing pet peeve?
 ~When anyone tries to talk, call, text, message … basically interact with me in any way when I’m writing, especially when I’m in the zone. Not sure that’s a pet peeve by the strictest definition, but it drives me crazy. Leave me alone when I’m writing people.

* Do you read other's reviews of your books?
 ~I try not to. I mean, I do read reviews when book bloggers send them to me, but aside from that, no. Nothing good can come from reading reviews, whether they’re good or bad. 

Fav Color: blue

Fictional Character you'd like to spend the day with: Ummm … I’m drawing a blank. Too many options. Too many options … and too many possible catastrophes! Lol

Fav food: ice cream

Fav song and/or singer: My favorite band of all time is OUR LADY PEACE.

Guilty pleasure: You see, this implies that I feel guilty about something I do for pleasure, and am somewhat embarrassed or ashamed of it. Nope. There’s nothing I feel guilty or ashamed about. I like what I like. And there is nothing I consider a guilty pleasure. *shrugs * 

Dyllin has several books out but her latest comes from this series here. This is book one of the series and it sounds amazing. I'll be one of those poor souls that was waiting for the zombie apocalypse! 

Before the day… before M-day… people used to read books and watch movies about zombies. They used to dress up as zombies; pretend to kill zombies… Basically, zombies had become a part of popular culture in a very unexpected way. 

The highly anticipated zombie apocalypse never came. 

What did come was much worse than any city over run with shambling corpses after brains and flesh. A virus… a virus that only affected men. Nobody knew what caused it, or where it had come from, not that it really mattered. It's here and there’s no going back. 

Maxine was one of the lucky ones--she got out alive. She and her friends banded together to survive the new desolate conditions left behind by the virus. When a supply gathering mission goes awry, Max and company are left with no better choice than to trust a group of uninfected military men. No longer on the run from her infected husband, Max discovers there could be worse dangers for her on the horizon… Like losing her heart to her mysterious savior everyone calls Zee.
