Okay here is the last day with Ms. Elizabeth Loraine. But remember to come back throughout the week to read my reviews on her three awesome books. So, here is the last part of the review.
Question: What kind of research did you do for the book?
Answer: I did research on vampire lore. Royalty of the countries involved, mapping of the land etc. Then once I start the book I research any idea that comes up along the way, like the masons and Templar Knights.
Question: Are there any venues for the books possible?
Answer: I think these books would be a fantastic movie, series or video game.
Question: Can you talk about any of the love interests? How did you decide which character would be with who?
Answer: Love interests evolve. I don’t write like a trained writer. I don’t map it all out. I don’t make up any of the characters or the plot or anything else before I start. With book one I started with a blank pad of paper and a simple outline. Even my daughter asked where all the names come from and I have to say. I don’t know they just come. In book two with so many I did research names once I figured out how many there were and their meanings and origins, then I matched them to characters.
Question: Why did you make Kate and Kat sisters or even more so twins?
Answer: Again these things just come to me. It seemed right. I feel like I hear these characters and their story and I am simply writing it down.
Question: Why do they have human guardians and not the typical werewolves?
Answer: That’s been done. I wanted to have them involved with humans somehow. Who knows more about what to watch for than another human? I like the tension it brings with the friendships, love interests and loyalty between those that usually wouldn’t trust each other.
Question: Where did the idea for crimson come from?
Answer: Crimson, the name of something red came from the idea that this was an ancient race that has evolved with wizard, elves witches and warlocks along with many other long lived races that help each other to find solutions to save all their races. My sister being the practical one said after reading that we had to explain how without refrigeration the blood product was kept fresh. So crimson was the solution to that problem. I actually have started the process of trade-marking the name Crimson, I think it would be a great name for a wine or energy drink.
