Thanks Bitten by Books for hosting my online release party!
Okay…so I have a BRAND NEW paranormal romance series starting called Living in Eden. The first book, The Demon in Me, is out May 4th (tomorrow!!!). I’m telling everyone that it’s a fun, romantic look at demonic possession. 😉 My hero, Darrak, has to possess my heroine Eden’s body (thus the series title: Living in Eden, get it?). While it’s light and humorous in parts, it has a darker side to it too, since I love mixing light and dark. Remember Buffy? How that show could have you laughing one minute and crying the next? THIS IS MY GOAL.
Why demons, you might ask? Good question. For some reason or another I’ve been getting A LOT of demon and angel ideas for the last couple of years. I guess I’m kind of fascinated by the whole good vs. evil thing and demons and angels are one of the best (if not THE best) metaphor for that. Only it wouldn’t be very interesting (to me) to have demons always being the bad guys and angels always being the good guys. So my demon, while definitely demonic and proud of it, is more of a shades of gray kind of guy. And he’s also the funniest hero I’ve written to date. Normally the humor comes mainly from my heroines (like Sarah Dearly in my Immortality Bites series), but this time they equally share the quips and humorous observations. In any case, it was a hell of a lot of fun (pun intended) to write this book and the second book about Darrak and Eden, Something Wicked, that comes out in October.
So The Demon in Me is about the ultimate bad boy demon with a sense of humor who falls for the woman he has to possess. The only woman who can help him break his curse that keeps him bound to a human body (although with Eden he’s able to take form during the day — kind of helpful!). I really hope readers connect with these new characters and have as much fun with them as I did writing them.
Okay, here’s my questions if you’d like to answer a couple: Who’s your favorite hero in a romance novel or urban fantasy, an angel or a demon? And who’s your favorite demon from entertainment, books, TV, movies, etc? Why do you like best about him or her?
