Hello guys! Today is the first time I'm participating on a Blog Tour, and I'm extremely happy. I had the amazing opportunity to be the first one and ask some questions to Elizabeth J. Kolodziej, author of the book Vampyre Kisses. Check them out!
Welcome Liz! Thank you for being here today :). Can you please tell us in a few words about your book Vampyre Kisses?
Vampyre Kisses is a story about a young woman, Faith, who finds out that she, is a witch and that this man, Trent, that she has been spending time with is a 400-year old vampire. Of course the way that she finds out isn’t the best way one could find out someone is a vampire, but what are you going to do? So there are gems that are stolen from the werewolf royalty and vampire master. Due to lots of circumstances Faith must learn how to control her powers in time to help her friends and get the gems back.
What/who was you inspiration for this book?
I actually have had a lot of inspirations for this book. There was no one thing. I have read so many books on vampires, witches, and werewolves and I guess after awhile I wanted to make my own. But the people around me, my friends, family, teachers, other authors, musicians, actors, they have all inspired me in so many different ways. In the end I wrote this book because I wanted to inspire others as much as those people have inspired me.
Who is your favorite character?
That’s a great question that I do not recall many people asking me! It’s funny but for this moment in time Kane is my favorite character. I think a lot of that has to do with how he has me write out his history and speak for him. The way he talks to me and the things I find out are just so much fun and interesting. Along with the fact that he is such a dick at times.
What was the hardest aspect of writing Vampyre Kisses?
The time that it takes was really the hardest aspect. I started writing this when I was around 19 years old. Well, when you are young the last thing you want to do is give up going out with friends to write. I think that is why it took me around 5 years to finish. Now that I am older I am better at working out schedules and such but no matter what you do you still give up a lot of personal time to spending writing a book. You have to really want to finish it.
If Vampyre Kisses was made into a movie, who would you cast?
Truthfully, I would probably cast nobodies. I have a lot of trouble seeing anyone has Faith or Trent, especially when it comes to looks. So it would have to be someone that in unheard of.
What's next for you? Are you planning to write more books?
I am actually working on the second book as we speak. I am really hoping to have the manuscript finished by the end of this year. Hopefully I can find a publishing house to take up the second book so I do not have to self publish again, which is difficult all in it self. But you will see more werewolf history in the second book and the same old characters much more developed!
