Kerrelyn Sparks Guest Interview

CONTEST ALERT!ment below to be entered for your chance to win!

Please join us in welcoming Kerrelyn Sparks and enjoy her guest interview!

Yay! I know the answer to this one! My favorite story theme, and the one I’m basically writing over and over, is Beauty and the Beast. The Beast can be a vampire, a werewolf, a were-panther, a demon, the “bad” boy in a small town, the Regency rake shunned by Polite Society, or the James Dean guy on a motorcycle. Whoever he is, he’s misunderstood, unloved, and unappreciated. Only the Beauty has the intelligence, warm heart, and discerning eye to recognize the prince hiding inside the Beast. While he’s saving her from the real bad guys, she is rescuing him. He maybe a bit naughty (or very naughty), but he’s always very sexy!
d why?
My favorite character is always changing, because it’s always the hero that I’m currently writing (and currently madly in love with).  I adore Phineas, the hero from Wanted: Undead or Alive, but I’ve been writing the next book in the series, so I’m madly in love with that hero right now. That would be Howard Barr, the were-bear. His book is Wild About You, and it releases at the end of November.What inspired your take on the vampire mythos?
I write romantic comedy and somehow vampires strike me as both romantic and funny. The romantic part comes from their mysterious allure, the hint of danger, and the fact that they’re wonderfully handsome. The funny part comes from the whole confusion over what they are. Are they alive or dead? What the heck is ‘undead?’ What happens if the vampire loses one of his fangs? (that happened to the hero from How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire) Will he be a lopsided eater for all eternity? Can he shave when he can’t see himself in a mirror? What happens if the heroine stumbles across him during the day when he’s dead? I’ve been having lots of fun with my vamps!
 for Vampire Fusion Cuisine come from? Are you a foodie yourself?
When I imagined being a vampire, it struck me that you could get awfully tired of the same dinner every night year after year. Living for centuries sounds great until you remember all the things you would have to give up. Like chocolate. Vampire Fusion Cuisine was my solution to that problem. The female Vamps can enjoy Chocolood, a drink that’s half-blood and half-chocolate. The Scottish Vamps love Blissky, which is half-blood and half-whisky. There’s Bleer (you can guess what that is!) and Bubbly Blood, which has champagne, for those special vampire occasions. And there’s Blood Lite, low in cholesterol and blood sugar, for those who over indulge with Chocolood.

In Wanted: Undead or Alive, Phineas has become famous for his commercials promoting Blardonnay (blood and Chardonnay). He’s known as the Blardonnay Guy. The commercials were inspired by the Old Spice Guy, and I had great fun writing them.

12 books in and the series is still going strong, you are introducing new character’s and new villain’s how many more Love at Stake books do we have to look forward to?
Wanted: Undead or Alive is book # 12 in the Love at Stake series. I’m currently under contract for 4 more, bringing the total to 16. I just finished writing book 13, Wild About You, which stars Howard, the were-bear.

When do you do the majority of your writing, during the day, at night?
I seem to do my best writing at night—either I’m more relaxed or my vampy friends are getting to me. But as my deadline approaches, I write every minute I can get.

What is your guilty indulgence?
Chocolate!! (not to be confused with Chocolood)
