The Heart of the Pack by Iris Sweetwater

Iris Sweetwater has been writing short stories and poetry since the age of four. This first love of writing got her featured in several poetry publications starting at the tender age of 13. Following high school, she found her niche in marketing, writing and editing for large websites and newsletters. Following finding out of her pregnancy with her daughter, she was unable to work, so she turned to the life of a freelancer. Iris began to find more confidence in her ideas and talents as she ghostwrote for publishers large and small and authors with great ideas who did not have the talent to put those ideas into eloquent words. At the end of 2016, Iris decided it was finally time to start publishing the stories that came from her own heart and has many books planned over the next few years.

About the Book

The war between the Olympia werewolf pack and the coven is over. A beloved brother has turned out to be a complete stranger and sealed his fate in death and punishment. Life should be peaceful now, but there is a battle raging inside the members of the pack; the kind that bites and fists cannot win. This is a war of the heart and of the mind. What is right and what does your heart want, and which should you go with? The werewolf brothers and the new leader of the coven will have to make the most heartbreaking decisions now that the storm has passed.

Why did you decide to be a writer?

Honestly, it's what I am good at. I have been doing it since I was four. My brain is far too full of ideas not to write!

Did you have a hard time sharing your work with the public?

When I was younger I felt nothing I did was perfect, it wasn't good enough. After ghostwriting for 6 years and writing bestsellers for others, I knew I had what it took.

What genres do you write?

PNR, YA Fantasy, New Adult & Contemporary Romance

Is there a genre that you've been wanting to experiment with?

Mystery/Thriller, only because I feel like I can mix it with romance and fantasy elements and make a really big deal with it.

If you could be one of your characters for a day, who would it be and why?

Annalise; she has so much power to use, and she is beautiful.

What is the oddest thing you've ever researched for one of your books?

I haven't researched much for my own yet, but I have ghostwritten a lot of MC romance books. I have had to look up the flow of illegal drug trade and human trafficking for those!

What authors have most influenced you?

Lauren Kate, Alyson Noel, JK Rowling, Holly Black, Cassandra Claire, Addison Moore

What are your goals as an author?

I want to make a career out of this. I want to make enough to have a savings for my daughter and a house for my family. I want to have at least a few loyal fans.

What do you enjoy doing aside from writing?

I love dancing and singing.

What book or series do you enjoy reading over and over again?

The Celestra series by Addison Moore

What are you working on now?

The final Brothers of Fang novel.

What was the hardest part about writing your latest book?

It is hard to tie up all the loose ends without being obvious and without ruining the characters the way the readers like them.

How do you market/promote your work?

Mostly, getting the word out to as many places as possible the week of release seems to work the best. Really large takeovers are also good.

Do you have any advice for other authors?

Do not let anyone tell you what to write and how to write without your permission. Do you.

Do you have anything specific you'd like to say to your readers?

You can always come to me and ask questions or express opinions. I will never get so big in the head that I do not want to hear from you.
