The Night Marchers Series by Rebecca Gober and Courtney Nuckels: Interview


 






Who are your books published with?  We recently opened up our own publishing house, Clean Teen Publishing.  After having such amazing success ourselves we wanted to be able to extend that possibility to others.  What makes our publishing house unique is our Content Disclosure system. Feel free to check it out: http://www.cleanteenpublishing.com/content-disclosure.html 

 

What songs are most played on your Ipod?  We happen to have a major girl crush on our favorite singer: Taylor Swift.  Sigh, she’s so amazing, smart, funny…did I mention she’s amazing?!?  Her lyrics inspire us when we write; cause honestly, who could write a better love story than Taylor?  

 

When's the last time you played that musical instrument?  We both grew up playing the violin.  Orch-dorks, saying it loud and proud!  Courtney extended her playing into college but Rebecca never picked hers up again after graduation; I wonder why… *Squeak, squeak*

*Rebecca shakes her head at Courtney, lol!

 

Have any of your characters been modeled after yourself? Yes!  Rebecca is most like Emma from Night Marchers while Courtney is modeled after Kaylee.  Seriously though, if you’ve read Night Marchers and Redemption you can pretty much say that you know us personally.

 

If you could exchange lives with any of your characters for a day which character would you choose and why?  I would choose Willow from our ELE series.  To have all the ‘abilities’ she has would be crazy cool.  And to have Tony as my boyfriend…well, that wouldn’t be such a bad perk too! *We are very happily married though and we look past the fact that our husbands lack super powers.

 

Is there a piece of advice that you have received that has really stuck with you? If so, what was it?  If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try, again.  My mother always said that to me over the years; as well as practice makes perfect.  I was raised to always follow my dreams, no matter how many mistakes you make along the way.  Yes, there is a reason my college education took 8 years but guess what?  I got my degree!- Courtney

Night Marchers (Book 1)


Picture

 
This new Young Adult paranormal series will have you averting your eyes for years to come! NEVER, EVER lock eyes with a Night Marcher! Everyone in Hawaii has heard this warning, except for seventeen-year-old Emma Townsend that is. For most Hawaiians know that looking into the eyes of Night Marcher can strike a curse that will end in death or eternal servitude.

Even though her father, who is a paranormal investigator, solely raised Emma, she has little experience in the realm of the supernatural. When she is forced to move with her father to Hawaii, only months before her graduation, Emma finds that her world as she knows it, is shaken when she starts seeing the unexplainable: fire balls in the distance, beating drums in the middle of nowhere and strangers who vanish into thin air.

Then one day when she has a run in with a procession of Night Marchers, ancient Hawaiian spirits wandering from their burial grounds to their locations of battles past, Emma has no choice but to believe that the unbelievable does exist. Now Emma must go on the run with the help of a mysterious stranger, as they seek out how to free Emma from the curse of a Night Marcher, who will stop at nothing to get her soul.

He would endure a thousand deaths for her, but would she let him? 

Torn between two men that love her, Emma Townsend is forced to make choices no seventeen-year-old should ever be forced to make. With her friends at her side, Emma embarks on an adventure full of danger, deceit and betrayal as she tries to redeem Kai, the man who made the ultimate sacrifice for her.

When Emma discovers that setting a Night Marcher free is no easy task, she is forced to make a very unlikely alliance. How far will Emma be willing to go to save Kai, and will she be able to do so before it's too late?

Rebecca Gober and Courtney Nuckels

We have been best friends since the first day we met at an Orchestra social in the sixth grade.  (Yes, we were orch-dorks and proud of it!)  Ever since that eventful day we have been attached to each other's hip.  Our mothers would say that we have a knack for finding trouble in the most boring of situations.  We both tend to agree with that statement.  Our many mad adventures together over the years and across several continents have given us countless ideas to write about for many years to come.

Rebecca is happily married with two kids.  She daylights as an apartment manager until she gets home to start her real job...writing!  Her dog Neo really rules the roost though.  He's 120 pounds of love and slobber.

Courtney is also happily married (her hubby is Rebecca's hubbies best friend.  No they didn't plan that!).  She has three kiddos which consumes most of her free time.  She homeschools all three kids, loves to sew and tinker in her veggie garden.  She also has two dogs, one of which is a Mastiff that feels he's a lapdog (he told me to tell you not to judge him by his size).

What do we have in common?  Everything!  Well, not everything... We both hate awkward silences, wedgies, styrofoam and bad drivers.  We love spending time with our families, attempting crazy crafts we find on Pinterest and finding new ways to get in trouble.
