Life and Death of Lily Drake
Where did the idea of this book come from?
The need to see a protagonist in a vampire romance that wasn't ditzy, eighteen years old or needig to be taken care of.
What genre would your book fall under?
Paranormal Romance, but I think Girly Vampire Slasher fits better. It's a new genre I just now made up.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Thank goodness I'm not a casting director. I just answered this question for the Inkspell Publishing Website's Eyecandy Monday and cast Jackson Hurst as Mathias and Rodrigo Santoro as Valentine. I stand by those decisions. (for obvious reasons, read the article and check out pics here.) But I chose Alyson Hannigan as Lily. I like her so much, but she might be a little young... I'm thinking now Drew Barrymore. Lily is pretty, but she's also goofy, has a great sense of humor and can be totally kick butt.
What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
For Lily Drake, slaying vampires is easy - Dating them is the hard part.
Is your book published or represented?
It is published by Inkspell Publishing and will be available on October 5.
How long did it take you to write it?
You know, I don't really recall. I wrote it and left it, then wrote some more. Then changed the storyline...
What other books in your genre would you compare it to?
It's a little darker than the Sookie books, it's a little sweeter than the Anita Blake series, and the series will continue following Lily unlike J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series which features a different character in each book. Although, I enjoyed all those books and would be honored to even be considered like any of them.
Now, the really fun part. Tagging 5 more people! I love a lot of people’s work, but these are the five folks whose brains I’d really like to pick on this! Your turn!
