Interview with Elisha Bugg, author of Reluctant Guardian

1. Can you tell us a little about your book?

RELUCTANT GUARDIAN is a paranormal romance novel set in an imaginary, present day world .
Thane is a wolf shifter and elite solider in an organisation known as the Guardians, who walks on the edge of becoming rogue after the death of his family at the hands of humans.
He's asked to return to his hometown in order to fight against the hunters who seek his kind, but he doesn't expect to bump into an unfamiliar human female who awakens his dark desires.
He's intrigued by his reaction to her and decides to watch her from a distance, never expecting she could be a target, or that she would lead him to find the man he's been searching for for the last twenty years.
Anya doesn't remember much of her passed, but when she comes face to face with an intimidating stranger who makes her act out of character, her life begins to change. Dreams of a black wolf opening up a world she never knew existed.
Together they uncover many secrets and betrayls, whilst they also learn more about each other and this unsatible hunger they have for one another.

Thane must put his past behind him or risk losing the woman meant to be his for eternity.
Anya has to discover who she is an help show this powerful beast that he isn't the monster he fears he is.  

2. Is this the first book you’ve had published?

Reluctant Guardian is my 1st published book, but I've already released a prequel short story availble from subscribing to my newsletter.

3. Are you working on anything new?

I'm currently working on three other projects.
- Book 2 of my Otherworld Guardians series is underway, around 1/4 of the book drafted.
- A paranormal/historical romance crossover that I started working on for NaNoWriMo 2019 and hope to be released early 2020. 
- And my DemonWarrior series which I've started working on book 1 and have around half the story panned out. 

4. What piece of advice would you give to aspiring authors?

Don't give up.
Allow yourself to take breaks and not beat yourself up about it. Sometimes the rest does us good and allows us to come back with a clear head. 
The 1st draft is not meant to be perfect, its just you getting the ideas out of your head. Perfecting it is what editing is for. 
Try to write a little everyday, even if it's only 50 words. 
Set yourself achievable goals rather than trying to stretch yourself too thin. 

5. What are you currently reading? 

I've purchased a lot of indie author books over the past month ready to read over the Christmas holidays.
I just finished Dark by Kat Kinney; and have just begun The Rose and the Thorn by Katherine Macdonald.
