Interview and Giveaway with Jill Myles!

Holla Maidens! We're so excited to have Jill Myles here with us today! Jill is the author of the Succubus Diaries and if you haven't read this series, then you're missing out! Ms. Myles gives us a unique take on vampires, angels and succubi and makes me laugh along the way! Thank you so much for stopping by today!

The history behind your succubi and their connection between vampires and angels is highly original! What was the inspiration behind this? How did Succubus Diaries come to be?

It was a pretty long process! I was working on a book about angels, and nothing was clicking for me. Then I had a flash of an idea about a reluctant succubus, and knew I wanted to incorporate that into my angel book. It added another angle, but I kept expanding outward, trying to figure out the world. What would be the repercussions of an angel that goes 'bad'? Why would someone want to? Why didn't an angel turn someone into a succubus every time he slept with them? Adding vampires to my mythos was kind of like finding the last piece of the puzzle.

UTC: If you had to choose, which of your characters is most similar to you in personality?

This is probably going to make my husband laugh, but Remy. The dirty jokes? The never-take-anything-seriously? The sheer silliness? A lot of that is me without a filter. I love Remy. Don't get me wrong, Jackie's part of me too, but she's the grumpy, slightly-worried-about-everything part of me.

UTC: You also write under the pen name of Jessica Clare. What major differences are there when writing contemporary romance as opposed to urban fantasy?

You can't just throw a vampire in there! ;) Seriously though - the hardest thing about contemporary is that everything - the problems, the reactions, the resolutions, the jobs, the personalities, the relationships - all have to have that ring of "This is how real life works" even if it's a fictional story. In paranormal, I feel like the gloves are off and just about anything goes.

UTC: This is going to be a tricky question... Which paranormal creature is sexier: Succubi, vampires or angels?

I do have a soft spot for vampires... ;)

UTC: If your characters could merge with other characters from another book, who would they meet?

Probably Meljean Brook's Guardians. I love that series so much, and I think certain characters would have a lot in common. Plus, I would just love for Remy to meet Irena.

UTC: If you could have one magical power, what would it be and why?

I'd love to be able to fly. No traffic, no airlines, no boundaries.

UTC: If you could date any male character from any book, who would it be and why?

Maybe Cade from Kresley Cole's DARK DESIRES AFTER DUSK ? He seems like he'd be a lot of fun and doesn't take himself too seriously.

UTC: What book is currently on your nightstand? 

Meljean Brook's DEMON BOUND which I am reading for the millionth time, THE MONSTRUMOLOGIST by Rick Yancey is on my audio-book player, and Cindy Pon's FURY OF THE PHOENIX is waiting to be read next. I am told there is a lot of kissing and angsty romance in this one!

UTC: "Succubi Are Forever" is your fourth and final book in the Succubus Diaries. What can readers expect from this book? 

Explosions! Cats and dogs fighting! The end of the world! Monsters! Or, you know, none of these things. ;) Jackie still has a lot of ground to cover in SUCCUBI ARE FOREVER. There are more halos to be found, Noah to be rescued (cough), more secrets to be revealed, and a promise made to a demon that needs to be taken care of. Plus, I need to show everyone that Jackie's HEA is working...or is it?

(Did I scare you?)

Anyhow, I'm really excited to write that book. It's been on my mind constantly over the past few months, even when I work on other projects. It's going to be awesome.

What a great interview! I totally agree with Jill's assessment of the major differences with writing contemporaries and PNR's. I think you definitely can take off the kid gloves with PNR's.

This IS a great interview because I've never heard of the Succubus Diaries. How is that possible? I live the idea behind the world setup...who wouldn't? A fallen angel, master vampire and, oops, a Succubus! I read the reviews for Foreplay, Zane's Tale, and Slave to her Desires. This world sounds fascinating. I would LOVE to win this book so I can learn about the characters of the Succubus Diaries world. What an introduction!!!
