Getting to know Coastal Magic Featured Author – Alex Hughes – #CMCon2014


Hi everyone!

I am so looking forward to attending Coastal Magic in February! We are going to have such a fun time.

One of the authors that will be joining us is  Alex Hughes.  I already told you a bit about here on the 1st.   She kindly took the time to answer a few questions so we can all get to know her a bit better.


Here we go…..


Charlee: For those who haven’t yet read your books,can you tell us a little about them?

Alex: Thank you so much for having me on the blog! I’d be happy to share. In the Mindspace Investigations series, a telepath and recovering addict named Adam helps the police in future Atlanta solve a series of crimes. In the first book, Clean, they track a killer who kills with the mind.

Charlee: Are you working on the next book? If so when can we expect to see it?

markedAlex: I just turned in Book #3, Marked, wherein Adam solves a crime for the Guild, and it will be out in April 2014. I’m currently working on Book #4, tentatively titled Vacant, which will be out in December 2014. I’m excited about both!.

Charlee: What are you looking forward to most about Coastal Magic?

Alex: I love being able to connect with readers. Readers are amazing and what it’s all about. I also love the bloggers, who read and review and are generally amazing. Being able to rub shoulders with everyone in a casual conference is a real treat.

Charlee: Any advice for fans who want to connect with you at the conference?

Alex: Be polite and friendly. If I’m in a public space, drop by and say hi. (This does not include the bathroom, lol.) Introduce yourself and say you’re a fan. Nine times out of ten, unless I have to be at a panel right then, I’d be thrilled to talk to you. I’ve also been known to chat back and forth on Twitter, and to set up meet times at a conference in advance that way. I’m always thrilled to sign books, as well! I love meeting fans.

Charlee: Are you planning anything special swag for the conference?

Alex: At the moment, no. But I have an idea for a Mindspace patch…. 🙂

Charlee:  Is there any other news you’d like to share with readers?

Alex: Just to say thank you. You guys make it all possible, and your support and word-of-mouth advertising really makes a difference. I am deeply indebted to you guys. Also, I have a few projects in the pipeline I can’t talk about yet, but if you sign up for the newsletter on my website, you’ll hear about it first.



Star Wars or Star Trek?

Alex: Yes.

Coke, Pepsi or other?

Alex: Coke! Please, I’m from Atlanta. Lol, in practice I’m more of an unsweet tea girl.

Salty or sweet?

Alex: Sour. Oh, and yes. All of the above.

Monsters or Space Aliens?

Alex: Space aliens. Although monsters a la Pacific Rim are awesome too.

Spaceballs or Galaxy Quest?

Alex: Galaxy Quest!

Charlee: Thank you for playing along, Alex!
