Today, October 12th, the digital edition of BLOOD AND KISSES releases on the www.SoulMatePublishing.com site! (everywhere else a week later. Look for the print edition in mid 2012)

Please join us for the launch party at:

Meanwhile, as is posted else where on my site. I will giving away a free e copy to a commenter between 12 am 10/12/11 and 12 am 10/12/11, so please, feel free to weigh in!

Since I have the blurb elsewhere in the site, here’s a little interview with the hero of BLOOD AND KISSES, Gideon Damek.

Hi Gideon, thanks for coming. I hope you don’t mind if we dive right in and I ask you to tell a little bit about yourself.

Where should I start?

How about the beginning?

I was born in Mesopotamia before it was Mesopotamia. My father was a King, but my status as his heir was hotly contested.

Why was that?

I was sickly and they didn’t think I’d live. My father sent me to travel with his armies as soon as I was old enough, ostensibly to toughen me up, but probably to get me out of the way.

What was that like?

I had to stay on my toes at all times. There were many ambitious men who would have liked to see me out of the way, permanently.

Sounds like a hard childhood.

I survived. But that was a very long time ago, after that I hired out as a mercenary.

But you weren’t born a vampire…?

No, but I prefer not to go into that right now.

Ok, fair enough. How about something more recent. How did you come to live in Rochester, NY?

I moved to America in the nineteenth century. I decided to travel West. Rochester was flourishing and despite the long summer days, it was overcast enough to make getting around tolerable.

So you don’t have to sleep during the day?

Young vampires do, but I can get along well enough if I stay out of the sun.

Were you the only vampire in Rochester?

No, eventually a whole community developed.

That must have been nice.

You’d think, but I’m not exactly a joiner. As the oldest, it was my job to enforce the code. It’s easier to destroy someone you don’t hang out with socially.

Makes sense. What about the witches?

What about them?

Did you hang out with them?

Hardly. Their blood is poisonous to us and they consider us parasites. So not a lot of mingling go on.

What about Thalia? Did you ever notice her?

I’m sorry. Your questions are getting pretty personal.  I’m done here.

Wait, Gideon! You can’t just walk out… I guess, he can.

I hope you enjoyed this interview, brief as it was. To learn more, please feel free to explore my website or visit, www.soulmatepublishing.com.

Story line sounds much more intriguing than the cover portrays.

2. Sheri Adkins - October 12, 2011

Loved the interview of your character! Sounds like an awesome story. Can’t wait to read it. Best of luck on your launch!

Thanks, Sheri! Nice of you to come by! I’m working on a trailer, but it’s slooow going because I can’t decide what to do.

4. Regina Mize - October 12, 2011

I really liked the fact that you are using an interview of your main character to promote your new release. This was a very creative idea and a nice change from reading another author interview. Best of luck!

karinshah - October 12, 2011

Thank, Regina for your kind comments and for stopping by! Have a great day!

Karin

You’ve piqued my interest! I hope the book is as amusing as the interview!

Congrats and good luck on the new release! Looks intriguing.

Thanks for dropping by! 🙂

9. Linda Andrews - October 13, 2011

That’s funny. Your hero is a little rude walking out on you like that 🙂 Guess I’ll just have to read the book to find out what’s so special about the witch. Congrats on the release.

karinshah - October 13, 2011

Yes, he was rude. I was inspired by an entertainment weekly interview with Daniel Craig, when asked about his new marriage to Rachel Weiz He basically swore at the interviewer.*g* Gideon was actually quite polite in comparison!:-)

Thanks for commenting!

Karin

10. J.D. - October 13, 2011

karinshah - October 13, 2011

Thanks so much JD!

Congratulations on your new release. It sounds like a winner.

karinshah - October 13, 2011

Thanks for your kind words! 🙂 Gideon and Thalia hold a lot of my heart and I’m glad to have a chance to share them.

Karin
