My Review: The continuation of this series makes you want more. I love the fact that the author can weave such an intriguing story with such well developed characters in just a few pages. The writing is wonderful. I was drawn in from the first page and did not put it down till I was finished. Jodie Pierce creates a vivid world that leaps off the page and stays with you. As a vampire fan it is a must read for adults. I highly recommend this book and I am again glad I picked them up. Fast paced and exciting with a stunning setting and riveting characters. I am reading the third book now and can not wait to see what happens next.
Author Interview : After reading the first book I wanted to know more about a Jodie Pierce, so I asked a few questions.
Q: When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
JP: In high school , but I didn't start writing about vampires until in college.
Q: How long does it take you to write a story?
JP: Depends on the story and how into it I am. Sometimes only a couple months, other times longer.
Q: Where do you get your ideas or inspiration from?
JP: Most of my ideas come from dream sequences I have. Also, hubby gives me a general idea that I run with.
Q: Are you working on anything right now?
JP: I'm working on "The Forsaken One" and a new one without a title as of yet.
Q: I love "The Vampire Queen" but I have to ask, are you planning a full length novel?
JP: I have a hard time writing a full length novel. They end up turning into short stories.
Q: Who is your favorite person in your story? And why?
JP: My Vampire Queen is my favorite. She's sassy, takes no sh** and can be arrogant.
Q:What are you reading now?
JP: A non published story for a friend that I'm proofreading.
Q:Do you have a favorite series? Or author?
JP: My favorite author is Anne Rice and Christine Feehan. Anne Rice is the reason I'm writing about vampires. Christine Feehan is the reason I've dabbled with Erotica.
Q: How do you prepare to write?
JP: I don't. I just write when I'm inspired.
Q: And one last question, what is next for you?
JP: The next great vampire novella of course.
I would like to thank Jodie Pierce for taking the time to answer. I have enjoyed working with her and hope to do so again.
