Feature Friday 6: Alicia Dawn and Nikita Jaks

Feature Friday banner

Name:

Alicia Dawn & Nikita Jakz

Random Fact 1:

—Education Motivation—
Alicia Dawn – I graduated with a degree in Computer and Office Management—because the Geek Gods in my head would accept nothing less. Besides, why not capitalize on my own special brand of insanity?

Nikita Jakz – I graduated with a degree in Electronic Graphic Design. Yes, despite my obscene ineptness with all things computer related, I actually found a place to belong—and create—alongside the rest of progressive society.

Random Fact 2:

—Moaning. It’s our Favorite—
Oh yeah… And here are the things that make us do it:

Alicia Dawn – Nuts. Peanut butter. Chocolate. David Gandy. Dr. Pepper. And of course, getting rubbed in those “happy spots.”

Nikita Jakz – The vampire Lestat. Mmhmm, that’s right. Lestat. Green apples with peanut butter. Tongue tickles between my shoulder blades. A killer cup of coffee. Climbing into my glorious bed after an exceptionally grueling day. Moan, indeed….

Random Fact 3:

—Obsession Confession—
Alicia Dawn – My love and fascination for human beauty has long since earned me the endearment nickname of Pic Pimp by all my friends and colleagues. Why yes, while I satisfy my irrational need to collect large quantities of inspiration-inducing model images (the faces to all those noisy voices in my head), I can also find ones for you, too! *Hums happily as I make my way back to Google Image*

Nikita Jakz – Good grief, the list goes on and on. But my top three would be all things paranormal, sci-fi and fantasy. Not just literary or theatrical, but all their artwork counterparts, too. I could easily spend an hour at a time surfing the net to get what I call my “fantasy art fix.” *wistful sigh* Oh yeah…. Good stuff.

Random Fact 4:

—Our Twitching Brains: and their Like-Minded Anomalies—
Alicia Dawn – aka Alicia “Ducks in a Row” Dawn, is famous for her organizational OCD tendencies. Indeed, if her ducks are in need of rowing, you better run for cover—fast.

Nikita Dawn – aka “Grammar Nazi” is a force to be reckoned with come editing season. Just step quietly away and let her do her thing. No seriously, don’t make any noises. And if you don’t want her head to explode, never—and I mean NEVER— make ‘a lot’ one word.

Random Fact 5:

—My Demon Trilogy 411—
Did you know that Seraphina and Cole’s love story was first enacted on the Role Play pages of Facebook? We had such a great time writing it, and it turned out so fun that we decided to share it with the world. E-book serials My Decadent Demon and My Demon Determined are available now, with the final installment My Demon’s Destiny scheduled for release April 2014.

My Decadent Demon

Seraphina Orielle, an angel of divine fire and light, was also an oracle of foresight. Considered adolescent among her peers, she had yet to master her gift of precognition when her first vision came to pass; a captivating male whose destiny was intimately intertwined with her own. Yet he was not of angelic design. In fact, he was very far from it. Tragically, by the time Sera discovered this pivotal detail, he had already attained ownership of her heart.

But not her ability to flee…

A hundred years later and Cole Asteroth does whatever the hell he wants. When he’s not busy, that is, with ‘dirty deeds, done dirt cheap’ for his master. Ornery and sarcastic, he gets his kicks wreaking havoc in the human realm. Oh, and making very un-angelic women beg for his touch. Life is good…

Until fate finally catches up with him.

A few weak moments, one too many innocent visitations and the two are entangled all over again. But not as they had been before; things are much more complicated now. And Cole no longer possesses much in the way of faith and forgiveness.
As the estranged lovers struggle with what path to take, they quickly discover that destiny, too, is a reluctant second chance provider. As outside resistance and decadent captivity ensues, can their situation get any more exasperating?

My Demon Determined

Never did Seraphina foresee herself taking refuge in the underworld. Cole, however, should have. Sera’s kin would never let her go and this was the one place their holier-than-thou feet couldn’t tread. Unfortunately, residing in a realm of vile depravity only adds to his problems. Now he must keep Sera safe from not only her kind, but his as well. Even Cole’s demon is more volatile from the subjection to incessant evil.

When the opportunity arises to solve their dilemma, he jumps at it. But it’s a dangerous mission – and Sera’s riding shotgun. As deadly adventures unfold and all hope seems lost, Cole is forced to search inside himself. With a soul that’s riddled with more questions than answers, can he find the lifeline they need?

Authors’ Bio

–Alicia Dawn–

Alicia Dawn was your average 9-5 workaholic that took care of every day business. After 10 long years of having no life, outside of home and work, she found Facebook as so many others had. Always having the passion, since she was in the fourth grade, to read and write, she got drawn into the Role Playing world. Living, via roleplay, the stories that picked up and continued on a book after it was done. This was a whole new world. Loving that the books she had devoured and loved to read were now never ending. She became captivated by all the stories that others with the same passion created, and Role Played out on Facebook. Getting drawn into something that she had never done before, but always in back of her mind wished she could do, Alicia started Role Playing on Facebook in 2010, meeting Nikita Jakz along the way. After a year, she decided to be adventurous and create her own characters. Not unlike what all authors do, when creating those awesome books that she had coveted and devoured when they came out. Joining a group of independent writers, Cole was born. A year later Nikita Jakz joined the same group and getting snagged by his story, Seraphina was born.

–Nikita Jakz–

Born and raised in the Northern Virginia, Nikita Jakz has always loved to write, but it wasn’t until her preteen years that she fell hard for all things romantic and paranormal. She could thank Lestat for that one, as well as for her new-found love of reading. With sci-fi fanatics, literary teachers and writers in her family, it shouldn’t have been a surprise. Waiting tables and bar-tending after high school, she worked hard to earn a degree in Electronic Graphic Design. It was during this period of time that she met her husband. Together they’ve built their crazy life together, ushering in four equally crazy children to enjoy it with. As a stay-at-home-mom she’s quickly become, along with the masses, sucked into the insane world of pop-culture ‘vampire love’ and she couldn’t be more thrilled. First came the book forums, then came the role play groups, which ultimately led her to become a fervent online independent writer. With a couple of her favorite writing partners, she endeavors to share with the world her beloved stories of love, adventure and supernatural wonderment.
Nikita is currently working on a handful of other projects as well, all paranormal romance, to be released as early as next year!
