Interview & Giveaway with Sharron Riddle!

****Giveaway CLOSED****

Do you like Fallen Angels?  Vampires?  Immortality?  Fast paced with action?  Well, this book was a great read to fit into all those areas.  Fate of the Fallen.  If you would like to read my review, you can jump.  I enjoyed this first book to the series, so much I had to see if Sharron Riddle would stop by for an interview.  And she did!  Please give a warm welcome to Sharron Riddle!

Welcome Sharron!  I’m excited to have you by today. J  After reading Fate of the Fallen I knew I had to have you by.  I loved reading it.

I’m going to start at the end and work back a little.  Thank you for the great ending!  I was afraid we would be left hanging wanting answers, but you did an amazing job of wrapping it all up wonderfully.

M:  Now… I loved Adam but then came too really like Rahab.  Do you have a favorite of the two?

SR:  I loved Adam. He was sweet and caring. But Rahab had a hotness factor that won me over. What can I say? I’m a sucker for the bad boys.

M:  There is a touch of goddess in Eva. ;)  Could we get a glimpse into her mother’s side of the family in the future?  Or more of what Eva can do?

SR:  There will definitely be more of Eva’s family. Her powers, too. She has many she hasn’t even tested yet, but will come in handy in the scrapes I’ll be throwing her in.

M:  You feature Fallen Angels and the creation of vampires here.  Have the Fallen Angels been a favorite of yours for some time?  Was there a lot of research for the backing to create your connection between the two?

SR:  I’ve been contemplating the creation of vampires for a long time. I did do a lot of research on the mythology, as well as fallen angels, and this just made sense to me. The power of immortality with a bite of darkness.

M:  I think I heard you are writing the next Eva and the Demonators book.  We will get more of Eva and Rahab then?

SR:  Oh yes, they are off to New York to join the local band of vampires to fight the Four Plagues – Rot, Madness, Apathy and Rage.

Oh Good! I can't wait to read more of Eva and Rahab.

M:  Okay, now for some fun questions.

One question I ask all visitors… If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?

SR:  Agh! There are too many places I want to see. I’d love to tour the ancient art and ruins of Europe, dive the Aegean Sea and the South Pacific. Where do I start?

M:  Tea or Coffee?

SR:  I wish I could say I was a healthy tea drinker, but I’m a sucker for blueberry coffee.

(I have to say blueberry coffee sounds tasty. I've never had. Might have to try it!)

M:  Favorite Color?

SR:  Red

M:  Favorite Childhood Fictional Creature?

SR:  As a child, I loved unicorns.  

Oh, I was a unicorn lover too! :)

M:  Now as an adult what’s your Favorite Fictional Creature?

SR:  I love mythology, and the deeper I dig, the more favorites I find. But I think my favorites might be my fallen angels.

M:  Favorite word? (any word at all)

SR:  (Blush) orgasmic – because it can mean so many things, and all of them are wonderful.

Oh, there are soooo many different meanings to orgasmic.  Great word pick!

M:  Thank you for stopping by Sharron.  Here’s wishing you all the best in words and pages.

SR:  Thank you for having me, Melissa! It was a blast!
I'm thrilled to have Sharron by today.  Thank you!

Great interview..I have to say I am now intrigued by Blueberry coffee! I also love the cover of Fallen.

How many books are planned for the series, and when does the next one come out?

rissatoo said...

Meeeeelllllll!!!! Stop adding books to my TBR! I'll never catch up! ;)

Also, the thought of blueberry coffee makes me shudder. Leave the fruits for tea! Coffee should only be adulterated with chocolate and/or caramel. Or kahlua. Or Irish creme. Or half 'n half & sugar. ;p

Melliane said...

Wonderful interview! I'm looking forward to meet Eva, Adam and Rahab in Fate of the Fallen. It's definitely on my list! With regards to the tidbit of info on the future books, the Four Plagues sound really interesting. Reminds me of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Can't wait to find out more!
