Blood Pledge The Dantonville Lagacy by Tima Maria Lacoba

                                           

Synopsis



Bloodpledge continues Alec and Laura’s story from Bloodgifted. Having undergone the Ritual and induction into the vampire community, Laura— the prophesised Child of Light and Darkness and last of the Ingenii—takes her place as Alec’s consort and First Lady of the Brethren. But resentment and anger grow at Alec’s privileged position as daywalker.
Among a powerful few, alliances are made and conspiracies formed, threatening a war that could destroy them all and endanger every human on Earth—creatures who would do anything to prevent the curse from ending. Now Alec and Laura must invoke the Pledge, an ancient ceremony that enforces Brethren loyalty to the Principate.
When Laura’s ex-boyfriend, Detective Inspector Matt Sommers, turns up with a threat that could expose Alec, the battle for their world and their lives begins.
                                        


My Review




Bloodpledge is the second book in the Datonville Lagacy. Tensions are definitely running high in the vampire community. Being one the brink of war, boundaries between each other must be established. Trust and allegiances are tested. Tima again is again very detailed in her story line and allows the reader to stay focused on details. It plays out smoothly allowing the plot to thickings which leaves you on the edge of your seat at times begging for more. I definitely can’t wait til the next book!

                                     Interview

1. When did you first start writing?

A: I’ve been writing all my life; from short stories

I’d ‘sell’ to my sisters, right up tomy first really terrible novel at 14. But the Dark

Secrets series was my first really serious try,which has roughly been years ago

maybe more.

2. What inspired you to write?

A: Music. I hear stories in all kinds of music and love to sit quietly and imagine what

the story might be.

3. Who are some of your biggest influences?

A: That’s a tough one, because there aren’t really any literary ones these days. I’d say

my influences are mostly musicians and filmmakers now. Peter Jackson, Muse,Thirty

seconds to Mars and Birds of Tokyo, to name a few.

4. Is there a special place you go

and a certain mind frame you like to be in before you write? 

A: I have 4 kids. I write when they’re not hanging off my leg.

5. What’s the most exciting thing that happened to you during your writing career?

A: I could say hitting number one several times on Amazon, but I like to think my

most exiting thing is yet to happen.

6. How do you come up with all the characters and different exciting plots?

A: I imagine or dream about a character then start writing the story and the rest just

falls into place, as if I have an ‘invisible friend’ writing along with me, or as if the

story happened somewhere else and I’m just telling it.

7. What authors have inspired you through your writing and how did they inspire you?

A: Stephen King inspires me toss out excuses as to why I can’t write and also to write

boldly.

8. Do you have advice for any writer who’s struggling right now?

A: Nothing to it but to do it. The only guarantee you have with writing is that

persistence pays and quitting leads to ultimate failure. You will begin as a terrible

writer, as we all do, and you will get better. But only by actually writing.

9. What’s the silliest thing that you have ever experienced in your writing career?

A: One star reviews. Ha ha ha.

10. Could you share something extra that you would like your viewers to know about you are your writing?

A: I’m a chocoholic. I suck the candy off M & Ms, three at a time, then eat the

chocolate, while I write. I’m also a huge Reign, TVD and Outlander fan.

Interview with Author Michele Hauf

                                                Michele Hauf                            

                                                                           

                                                                           

Michele has been writing romance, fantasy, action/adventure and paranormal stories for a couple decades and enjoys reading the same. It never fails that when she’s working on a project set in the icy months of winter, that it’s actually humid and hot outside, and vice versa.

                                       

                                                  Interview

                                                                       

1. When did you first start writing?

Early 1990s, right after having my son (who is 24 now).

2. What inspired you to write?

I’ve never been one of those people that knew she wanted to write, but instead have always had stories in my head. Wild, elaborate stories that I would think about for days, weeks on end. I decided to try my hand at writing one down one day, and I haven’t stopped since.

3. Who are some of your biggest influences?

Well, about halfway through writing my first book (a vampire story called Dark Rapture) I discovered Anne Rice’s Vampire Lestat. So she has influenced my writing quite a bit.

4. Is there a special place you go and a certain mind frame you like to be in before you write?

I have an office, a few steps away from my bedroom, so the commute is pretty good. 😉 I can’t write with noise or music. I do love to have the windows open in the summer and have the birds chirping. And no certain frame of mind, though admittedly, writing the sexier scenes does require one to be in a certain frame of mind. 😉

                                                                     

5. What’s the most exciting thing that happened to you during your writing career?

I think it’s pretty hard to top that first sale. It was the first book I’d written and the publisher called about six months after I’d sent it out. I remember that day well. For some odd reason, my hubby was home from work early, and he was upstairs in the shower when I got the call. I had to tell him and couldn’t wait, so I ran into the shower to tell him. Yep, that was an interesting day.

                                                                         

6. How do you come up with all the characters and different exciting plots?

They just seem to spawn in my imagination. These weird families of vampires and werewolves and faeries and witches. I’m very visually inspired, so I can see a picture (like on Pinterest!) and want to know who or what that person is, and I can pretty much immediately decide that about them. Sometimes, those inspirations lead to stories.

8. Do you have advice for any writer who’s struggling right now?

Just write. Write every day. And then write some more.

9. What’s the silliest thing that you have ever experienced in your writing career?

Bad reviews that clearly show the reviewer has not even cracked open the book to read the contents. Some people have too much time on their hands!

10. Could you share something extra that you would like your viewers to know about you are your writing?

I love my readers and am so pleased when they email me to let me know they enjoyed a certain book. If just one person likes a story, then my work is done. I’m a happy camper. Because sometimes I think I write weird stuff, and no one is possibly going to like it. Ha! Writers are very insecure. On the other hand. I take great pride in the stories I put out there. There is a little bit of me in each and every story!

Michele is one of the most talented authors I know. She writes so fluently that it flows from your thoughts, inbeds in your heart,  but lingers in your soul. It stays with you for a long time and in hope that each series will keep repeating itself.  If you want to go check out her books look on her website for a list of them. They are a ride you will not want to miss!

Interview of Max Cummings

                                      Max Cummings

                                                Bio

                                                                          

I’m a simple man with a complex mind and a penchant for new, unusual and exciting experiences. I have a well-earned sense of humor and it shows in my writing, so if you’re not in need of a few laughs mixed with your hot reads… I make no apologies for my style of writing, and I follow no one’s lead. If you’re looking for cookie cutter rainbows and unicorns romance novels, you came to the wrong place. My characters are real like you and me, flawed, genuine, and wanting for true love like the rest of us. Sometimes they have to take a journey to get there and discover it, but don’t we all? Follow interesting people on their journeys, adventures and misadventures as they seek their ultimate mate in a variety of vignettes and novellas guaranteed to pull you into the stories and make you feel what they feel. Many of my tales are based on actual events and very real people and places, so come along for the ride, and buckle your seatbelts folks…it might get a little bumpy on this rollercoaster!

                                                                           

                                         Interview

1. When did you first start writing?

I kept a travel journal on my trip to visit my dad for the summer in Germany when I was 9.

2. What inspired you to write?

Friends inspired me to write and publish

3. Who are some of your biggest influences?

Robert Louis Stevenson, Jules Verne and Ernest Hemmingway and Robert Frost.

                                                                   

4. Is there a special place you go and a certain mind frame you like to be in before you write?

I mostly write in bed…can’t beat memory foam for comfort! I keep a notepad on me most of the time when I’m not writing…ideas come to me all the time. If I don’t write them down, poof, they’re gone. No particular mind frame needed to write…never suffered from writer’s block.

5. What’s the most exciting thing that happened to you during your writing career?

Most exciting? Publishing the first book, and good reviews from established authors.

                                                                        

6. How do you come up with all the characters and different exciting plots?

From my own life experiences, friends’ experiences or random creative concepts.

7. What authors have inspired you through your writing and how did they inspire you?

I’m inspired by the human condition in all its forms, not other writers.

8. Do you have advice for any writer who’s struggling right now?

Who am I to give advice? I’m just the new guy on the block.

9. What’s the silliest thing that you have ever experienced in your writing career?

Silliest thing? Prima donna authors and the over-competitive mentality. The destroy if you can’t create mentality. The crabs in a bucket mentality. The pathetic little spy games and fake accounts are ridiculous. Grown people acting a fool over stupid miniscule things on facebook. People who leave a 2-star rating with no review. Try combat on for size…everything else is so incredibly petty compared to surviving a REAL war and losing friends.

10. Could you share something extra that you would like your viewers to know about you are your writing?

I don’t write rainbows, unicorns and happily ever after. I write about ‘flawed’ characters (realistic people in real life circumstances), unusual but plausible situations, stories made more interesting with twists and turns life throws at them and a dose of humor for good measure. I’m unconventional, I write in my own style, and I deliver intelligent reads for outside the box minds to enjoy and be moved by.
