Interview with author Liz Strange + Giveaway!
Hi Liz, thank you so much for guest blogging!
1. Please tell my readers about your books.
The Dark Kiss Trilogy is a dark paranormal romance series, which follows the “lives” of Rachel and Giovanni, and their circle of friends, allies, and enemies. The books primarily focuses on the relationship of the two main characters and those in their inner-most circle, but there is also a back-story involving a centuries old vendetta and the search for the first vampire.
2. What are you currently working on?
I am working on an erotic fantasy novel involving some of the secondary characters from the Dark Kiss.
3. Who are some of your favorite authors?
I enjoy Charlaine Harris, Tanya Huff, Michael Slade, Anne Rice, Kathy Reichs, and Karin Slaughter. I read mostly horror, fantasy, and mystery/forensic novels.
4. If you could be turned into a vampire by any famous person, who would it be?
Oh, that’s so hard. I’d love it to be some powerful woman like Cleopatra, or someone really brilliant like Oscar Wilde.
5. If you could write a book about any subject and it would sell no matter what, what would you write about?
Well, in honesty I’ve already written about something that completely fascinates me – vampires. I guess I’d have to turn to my inner geek here, and say I’d love to write a story involving ancient cultures, and perhaps a historical mystery. I’d love to have a story set on Easter Island.
6. What inspired you to become an author?
I get asked that I lot and it never seems to get easier to answer. It’s just something I’ve always had in me, ever since I was a little girl. I have so many things churning around in my brain, if you could see them, you’d understand that I need to write them down.
7. Do you have any weird phobias?
I do. I don’t like people touching my feet. It completely freaks me out. I also don’t like driving over bridges, clowns, and the idea of alien abduction.
8. You write paranormal, fantasy and horror books; what are the major differences in writing in each of these three different genres?
These genres all fit together nicely, but I think it’s the tone that sets them apart. Writing horror can be exciting, but also draining because it’s so dark. With paranormal and fantasy its lighter, for me anyway, though I do find that my dark tendencies do drift into most of my works. I enjoy all three because you can stretch your imagination, and create creatures and circumstances that do not exist in reality.
9. If you could have any magical power, what would it be and why that power?
I’d love to be able to turn invisible. It would be so fun to be able to eavesdrop on situations I would normally never see.
10. Is there anything else you’d like to share with my readers?
I’d just like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their interest and support. Happy reading everyone!
