Destiny Blaine stops by with her latest book

Colleen: Today, we have Destiny Blaine sitting down with us here at Passion in Print. Thank you for coming, Destiny. I have been a fan of yours for quite some time, so I am quite excited to find out a little about you and how you write! 

Let's get started. Where/when do you like to write? Do you write every day?

Destiny: I used to write daily. Hopefully, I’ll be back on a strict writing schedule soon. My husband recently completed construction on a ‘writer’s cabin’ which is located in our backyard. It’s a quiet place to go and work without interruptions. 

Colleen: A writer's cabin!! I am jealous, it sounds like heaven. So I know which of your books is my favorite to date, but what is your favorite book that you wrote? 

Destiny: It’s so difficult to choose a true favorite, but Waking up the Arguably Dead, a Passion in Print publication, is definitely right up there at the top of the list. Set in my current hometown of Blountville, Tennessee, Waking up the Arguably Dead was inspired by some of the locals here. 

Colleen: Hmmm well now I really can't wait to read it! Do your stories require research? Do you travel or just go to the library/web to gather your information?

Destiny: Some books required research. Some research was obtained by visiting the locations used as settings. The internet sure comes in handy, too! 

Colleen: The internet is a good resource for sure. There is nothing that can't be Googled! What is your current story? 

Destiny: I’m working on a young adult novella with horror-romantic elements. I know. It’s a strange combination. ;) 

Colleen: What groups or social media networks can readers frequently find you posting and chatting in?

Destiny: Destiny B Chatting, my Yahoo group, is very active. Started in October of 2006, we’ve undergone various changes throughout the years, but one thing has remained constant. The readership and support received there is second to none. Join us if you have a chance. I’m also on Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace.  My website is updated frequently as well. 


  1. A writer's cabin sounds neat. Maybe I need to spruce up my home office and then I wouldn't mind coming into it to write so much. Thanks for the idea.
