When not attached to her laptop, USA Today Bestselling Author Robin Bielman can almost always be found with her nose in a book. A California girl, the beach is her favorite place for fun and inspiration. Her fondness for swoon-worthy heroes who flirt and stumble upon the girl they can’t live without jumpstarts all of her story ideas. She is a 2014 RITA Finalist, loves to frequent coffee shops, and plays a mean game of sock tug of war with her cute, but often naughty dog, Harry. She cherishes her family and friends and loves to connect with readers.
Robyn Bachar enjoys writing stories with soul mates, swords, spaceships, vampires and gratuitous violence against the kitchen sink. Her books have finaled twice in the PRISM Contest for Published Authors, twice in the Passionate Plume Contest, and twice in the EPIC eBook Awards. As a gamer, Robyn has spent many hours rolling dice, playing rock-paper-scissors, and slaying creatures in mmorpgs.
Award-winning author Cassi Carver lives in sunny Southern California with two dogs, four kids and a hubby who gives great massages. She gets to the Gaslamp for research (okay, happy hour) as often as possible. She’s never saved the world, but she keeps sexy boots on hand just in case the opportunity arises.
Golden Heart Finalist and Amazon bestselling author Anne Hope writes emotionally intense romances with a twist—a twist of humor, a twist of suspense, a twist of magic. Whether they make you laugh or cry or push you to the edge of your seat, all her stories have a common thread. They all feature the redeeming power of love and the heart’s incredible ability to heal. She lives in Montreal, Canada, with her husband, her two inexhaustible kids, a lazy cat and a rambunctious Australian Kelpie.
Golden Heart Finalist and Amazon Bestselling author Corrina Lawson is a former newspaper reporter with a degree in journalism from Boston University. A mom of four, she now works from home writing romance novels with a geeky twist and as the Content Director and co-founder of GeekMom.com. She is also the co-writer of GeekMom Book: Projects, Tips and Adventures for Moms and Their 21st Century Families.

What is your favorite part of Five Past Midnight?
I enjoyed reading all the books in this set, but my favorite is Veiled Target by Robin Bielman. It’s this fabulous mix of paranormal adventure and angsty romance, like a mash-up of Alias and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It starts off with the heroine trying to slay a vampire on a crashing plane. SO GOOD! There’s great chemistry between Tess and Hugh. They’re constantly trying to elbow each other out of the way of danger, like, “Shut up and let me save you!” I loved it.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
I’d definitely want Portia from Blood, Smoke and Mirrors. She’s a faerie, and could teleport me off the desert island with a snap of her fingers. ;)
What inspired you to write your first book?
Blood, Smoke and Mirrors was my first published novel, and I’m thrilled to see it included in Five Past Midnight. The book began as my first project for National Novel Writing Month in 2006, and it started off as a single scene. The heroine, Cat, was called into work after midnight by her best friend/boss to hear some terrible news. The story unfolded as I determined what the news was (a murder), then who did it and why, and how that affected Cat.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
I skip the part that’s giving me trouble and leave it in brackets. I almost always get stuck on fight scenes—I love including them in the plot but I hate writing them. So I leave a placeholder like [fight scene here] and come back to the scene when I’m ready to write it.
What book are you reading now?
I just started reading Phoenix Rising, the final book in the Five Past Midnight boxed set. It’s very good! Lots of intrigue.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Five Past Midnight is available at $4.99 for a limited time only, so please pick it up before the discount ends!
