Blog Tour: Faith by Brei Betzold…my interview with Brei and 2 giveaways!!!

Posted May 10, 2013 by Holly in Blog Tour, Interview / 2 Comments

Mags is a single mother, running her own business trying to make ends meet. Drake is an A&R guy for a local indie record company who has been working nonstop for a year. When both finally take a vacation with family and friends, they are forced to finally admit, at least to themselves, that they have feelings for each other.

When they go home, they find it even more difficult to put the past in the past and maintain a relationship strong enough to face the challenges ahead. Follow along as they try to make a relationship work while fighting demons of their own, through circumstances not of their making, and with family and friends trying to help.


Holly: Welcome Brei! Thank you for joining me, can I get you anything?


Brei: An Irish Coffee with a double shot of Jameson’s sound good
if you don’t have that a glass of wine would work


Holly: Have you just met me? I always have wine here!
So Faith, book #2 in the My Misery Muse series is out; can you tell us how the readers response to it has been?


Brei: They seem to like it, more than one have told me that they have a crush on Drake and that they don’t like Mags


Holly: I’m with them on that one, there were a few times I wanted to throat punch Mags myself. Drake is a great guy. *hides in case Nikki sees this*
Since you had already established the characters back stories in MMM did you find writing Faith to be easier?


Brei: No actually, I found Faith more difficult to write than MMM, I’m not sure why though
Holly: Because Mags was a pain in the ass lol?


Brei: Mags was a pain in the ass, and I actually jumped up and down when I realized I got to shoot her.
I don’t think she was the reason it was more difficult though, I think it was trying to keep everyone close to what they were in MMM but also tell a fresh story from them. I expect it will be even more difficult as the series continues in that aspect.




Holly: Oh you kept it fresh especially the scene involving Drake and his accident. Did you ever consider it turning out any other way than how it did?
Brei: Yes, Drake very nearly died and Mags ended up with someone else, only my life was threatened when I was brainstorming this twist with a friend.


Holly: I wouldn’t call it threatened…more like we all insinuated we’d react un-kindly
Brei: No I think Nikki actually threatened my life at one point


Holly: Haha I love that spitfire!
We would’ve road tripped to see you.
I know you get asked this a ton of times so hopefully this will be the last time your asked, what other books do you have planned for the series?


Brei: I don’t mind this question since I never give a complete answer so I will say there will be 5 novels in total and 2 novellas the who, what, and where will have to wait to be answered on the remaining books.


Holly: Wait that means there will 3 more full novels coming?


Brei: Yes there will be and 2 novellas
Holly: Eeeeepppppp!!!!!


Brei: Good eep or bad eep because they can have a catostophic bus accident and I can end the series




Holly: It’s definitely a good eepppp!
None of your there’s a Big Bang and they all die ;p


Brei: Sigh, but I have many already written in my head
Holly: For now we’ll just keep them in your head
You have a standalone releasing in June titled Painted Lines; would you mind giving us an idea what it’s about?
Brei: I don’t know how to explain Painted Lines, its darker than MMM and Faith, it’s leading lady Scout was brutalized at one point and this follows her seven years later trying to find out who she is. She’s fighting against so much emotional shit while trying to pursue her one dream. It’s about family that sometimes holds on too tight, it’s about falling in love for the first time, it’s about learning to live life on your own terms then fighting for that life.




Holly: I think that summed it up nicely
Before I let you go is there anything you want to say to your readers?


Brei: I was thinking about letting it spill on who Tribal was about, but I don’t think they really want to know.


Holly: Ohhhh think it would drive them crazy since I may or may not know who Tribal is about?


Brei: So Tribal is a MMM novella, and I have decided to take my two favorite men out of the tattoo shop for these. The first novella was heartbroken in My Misery Muse when Devi decided to go back to Seth, and he may or may not be having a secret relationship with a certain nanny.
meh particular nanny




Holly:*claps like a trained seal in excitement*
I can’t wait for that to hit my Kindle and I’ll be waiting patiently until it does!!!




Brei: I am hoping to have it out sometime this summer after Painted Lines, then I have another project I am working on before diving into MMM3.




Holly: I’ll be waiting
Brei, I want to thank you for taking the time to sit down with me tonight


Brei: You’re welcome, it was fun.


Holly: It was! You’re my first one on one live interview and I thank you for being gentle
Come back anytime!


Brei: Hope it didnt hurt too badly
Holly: Nope I didn’t feel a thing lol 😉

  1. I DEVOURED MMM and Faith. I actually read one and than the other in an 8 hour time period because I could not put them down.
    I am very excited about the upcoming novella, because all of Brei’s characters are so well developed you have come to fall in love with all of them, not just the members of the band.
    Thank you for amazing books and a wonderful blog post!
