Congratulations to "Casey", the winner of Angela's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated.
Thank you, JPR, for inviting me here. Since I’ve been out of town, I asked my heroine, Val, to get some interview questions answered by Kade, a vampire prince and the hero of my debut, Bad Mouth. Haven’t had a chance to review the transcripts or video, though. I had some really great, hard-hitting questions for him about his feelings on how he came to power and what his plans are for the Immortalis as well as his plans on dealing with the complications of his relationship with Val. Should be some great, dramatic stuff here…
CLICK. Start recording…
Kade: Now tell me again why we’re doing this?
Ezra: Because Val said so.
Kade: I don’t answer to her.
Ezra grins his Cheshire grin and says nothing.
Ezra: No cussing, degenerate. I’m recording this for general audiences.
Kade (under his breath): I’m not gonna live through this.
Ezra: You’re like a whiny little girl.
Kade: This whiny girl’s going to put a boot so far up—
Ezra (holds up a hand): I haven’t tasted leather yet, junior. Now let me get this over with before Val has my head on a platter.
Kade (laughing): I told you she’s turning into a tyrant.
Ezra: You’re rubbing off on her. Besides, you’re the one hovering too much and getting her in a pissy mood.
Kade (with a flash of fangs): Stop talking to my woman, Ezra.
Ezra (grinning): Not my fault she likes me more than you.
Kade: You did have a reason for wasting my time?
Ezra (clears throat and shuffles papers on the coffee table in front of him): It appears Val had a few discussions with a Ms. Angela McCallister, a woman intent on writing a biographical story about your rise to—
…Ezra laughs, bending forward in his seat and crumpling the papers in his hand…
—your rise to pow—
Kade: Will you spit it all out before you choke, asshat?
Ezra (clears his throat again and wipes at his eyes): About how you came to head the Immortalis.
Kade: So she made me look good.
Ezra: Actually, a lot of reviewers said you were a complete dic—jerk. In fact, they rather liked me.
Kade (with a grunt and a frown): See what happens when you leave things up to a woman?
Ezra: She got the story from Val.
Kade: Exactly my point.
Ezra: Well, well. Not so in love anymore, are we?
Kade (looking everywhere but at his friend): I’d bend the world backward to her will and kneel at her feet, Ezra. So shut the fu—heck up.
Kade’s cell phone rings, and he speaks briefly to the caller before turning back to Ezra.
Kade: You’re not going to believe this. That was Killian. Someone’s murdered a newly-turned fledgling.
Ezra: You going to leave Val’s side in her condition?
Ezra: Then what?
Kade: You’re dealing with it. The team’s yours while I work with Ptolomy and take care of Val. Damn, I wish you could see the look on your face. Almost makes up for you talking to my woman.
Ezra (trades scowl for a wide grin): Afraid I’ll steal your human away from you?
Kade: I’m gonna laugh to my grave when you fall for the oldest vampire Ancient to walk the earth.
Ezra (returns to his scowl): Don’t even curse me that way.
Kade: Okay, we’re done here.
Ezra (waves the crumpled papers): We didn’t answer any of these.
Kade (stands and heads away from the camera): Done, you albino motherfu—

Uhmmm. Well. Not what I was expecting at all. Sorry about all that. I guess if you want to learn more about Kade, Val, Ezra, and the rest of Kade’s merry men, you may have to pick up the book. Thanks again, and keep an eye out because the sequel to Bad Mouth is coming before the end of the year!
