Author: Kristy Centeno
Publisher: Limitless Publishing LLC
Date Published: July 6, 2014
Part of a Series?- Book 2 of The Witch Keepers Trilogy
Length: 276 pages
Book Blurb: Demi Redding has used her powers to vanquish demons for years, but when one shows up next door she will be forced to set both her experience and instincts aside to battle a war that has nothing to do with magic, and everything to do with matters of the heart.
As a Keeper of the Innocents, Demi’s load as a guardian reduces with only one charge to take on at a time. However, when her new foe proves to be a force she can neither see nor find, she has no choice but to doubt the so-called good intentions of the stranger one door down.
Rhyzel Connor is not your average neighbor by any means. The red specks of color in his green eyes alone sets him apart and his demonic heritage makes him an easy target. Because of who he is he can’t afford a mistake that will result in his demise, but the fact that he knows way too much about Demi quickly raises the suspicion veil over him.

There is a mission he must complete, and secrets he must fight hard to keep, but the biggest hardship he must face will be forfeiting his life in order to save Demi’s.

We would love to know more about you:
1    --5 of the funniest (or weirdest) things about you:
I’ve been told I wiggle my nose a bit when I’m nervous.
I can multitask better than anyone I know.
Sometimes I procrastinate because of lack of interest, but once I get to that point where I absolute have to do (it), I move really fast.
I like the smell of hot peppers, but cannot eat one.
I think I have a little of an obsessive disorder—when I organize my house, I can’t stand it when someone moves an item or doesn’t put it back where it’s supposed to go.

2   --The one place you would do anything to visit:
Paris, France.

    The cheesiest line you've ever heard:
Did it hurt when you fell out of heaven?

--This or That:
-- Contemporary or Mystery
I love a great mystery any day.
-- Snow or Fire
-- Physical Books or E-Books
Both. I love the feel of a traditional book, but e-books are much more convenient.
-- Salsa or Hip-Hop
Definitely both. I love a little variety in the music I hear as much as in what I read.

And now, onto your masterpiece(s)

4    Give us a brief outline of your books in the Witch Keeper Series:
The Keeper Witches series are basically designed as a stand-alone read. Each book begins with a new story and completely different characters. In every book a new witch is introduced, and we quickly learn that she must overcome some obstacles and learn how to put any personal issues, problems, vendettas aside in order to fulfill her duties as Keeper Witches.
In book # 1 we come to know Bryn McCaskey. She’s shy, can see the dead, and lacks the ability to communicate well with others because she’s been ostracized her entirely life, but as part as her responsibilities she has to care for a Lost Soul that holds a deep, emotional grudge against witches.
In book # 2 we meet Demi Redding. Demi is a lot more confident and secure about who she is, but she doesn’t trust easily. When a demon—of all people—appears next door she has to contend with the possibility that his intentions, and his reasons for being there, might not be as bad as she’s made them out to be.
Eventually, the books will transcend beyond what I have come up with so far and feature more witches, more stories, and I hope to bring Demi and Bryn together in a special edition Keeper Witches novel in the near future.
What inspired you to start writing the series?
I’m a vampire/werewolf junkie. I’ll admit it. So this time I want to write about something different. I wanted to venture outside my comfort zone so to speak. Witches seemed like the best choice so I started there.
Once I had the first few chapters down I couldn’t stop. I became involved with the characters and their stories.
6.      If there was a singular piece of advice you could give your main characters, what would it be?
Follow your hopes and dreams. No matter how bad things get, keep moving forward. The past is the past. The only thing that matters now is the present.

7.      Where can we see you after this?

Well, I’m currently working on a blog tour for my latest release, Payback is Sweet. This is a new adult/contemporary romance novel of approximately 91,000 words, which I’m just getting around to spread the word about.
I’m also working on my latest MS, which will be a sequel to another of my YA/paranormal romance novel called Secrets of the Moon.

Thanks for being here, Kristy! It's been an absolute pleasure!
