It's a new month so that means we have a new Author of the Month! And who else would we pick other than paranormal romance author, Larissa Ione! You may have heard of her delicious demons in her Demonica series, but Ione has a new spin-off series called the Lords of Deliverance. Her latest book, Immortal Rider features Limos and Arik, a character you may know from the Demonica series. UTC got the chance to chat with Larissa Ione on her newest release, so without further ado....
Well, I think what sets the Lords of Deliverance books apart from the rest of the genre is the fact that it's about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Yes, there are vampires, werewolves, angels, and demons in the books, but the main characters are Biblical legends who haven't played major hero roles in romance novels (as far as I know, anyway.) As for what sets it apart from the Demonica series...that's a difficult question since the two series are so intertwined, and as the Horsemen books progress, the Demonica characters become even more involved in the apocalyptic arc. But I guess I'd say that the LOD books are a little darker, and they delve deeper into the supernatural world.
Thank you! Actually, I'd love to write science fiction -- a Star Trek novel, specifically.
Hmm...I think readers like Reaver because he's a powerful authority figure, but also because he's got a mysterious past that even he doesn't understand. More of this comes out in the Lords of Deliverance books, which will kick off his own book I'm hoping to see released in early 2013.
My crazy imagination! :)
Well, we're still working on that. We're planning some novellas, but we don't know if they'll be self-published or will be released through a publisher yet. We're very excited about them, though!
Unfortunately, not much. But you'll learn all about them in Lethal Rider, which is Thanatos's book, set to release next summer.
Vampire! A vigilante vampire. I'd spend my nights hunting scumbags. Fun!
Do you mean, which Horseman? I think Pestilence/Reseph. I'm currently working on his book right now, and he's a blast to write.
Ooh, tough one. They both have their draws...and drawbacks. I'd say Supernatural edges out True Blood, but not by much. Definitely prefer Eric, though! Mmm....
Everyone at UG loves a good par-tay! There'd be champagne fountains, blood punch, plenty of, er, raw appetizers, and the invitations would be sent via a real life elf -- but probably not the kind Santa uses. Elves in the Demonica world are less happy. The Horsemen would definitely be invited, which, by default, would mean that a hellhound or two would show up. As for what would happen? Drinking, eating, dancing, and, of course, lots and lots of sex!
Thanks so much for having me, and happy holidays to everyone!!!!
