During Bad Moon Rising, we’ve had a lot of discussion about being vampires and werewolves – pros, cons, hair, no hair, sparkling, etc. In the featured book (scheduled for release November 4th) by today’s author, vampires are an endangered species. Wonder why? Welcome Shari Sakurai!
Would you rather walk through a haunted graveyard at midnight or spend the night in a haunted, abandoned house?
I’d say definitely a haunted graveyard. Abandoned houses tend to be home to massive spiders and I’m way more scared of them than ghosts!
Would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf?
Vampire! Of all the supernatural species, they are the ones that hold most fascination for me so I would be interested in experiencing for myself what it would be like to actually become one.
Would you rather be part of the X-Files team or Ghostbusters?
I grew up watching X-Files so I’d love to be a part of the team!
If you had the opportunity to live anywhere in the world for a year while writing a book that took place in the same setting, where would you choose?
Nagasaki, Japan. The prequel to my novel Demon’s Blood is set in Nagasaki so it would be amazing to be able to write it whilst living in the city!
What is your favorite cover of all your books? Why?
It’s so difficult to choose, but I would say Demon’s Blood. When I had all the covers for my novels re-designed I was especially pleased with how that one turned out. It just really illustrates the plot of the novel so well.
How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?
Too many! Mostly unfinished ones though. They are all stored in folders and I hope to be able to finish them all one day, in particular my fantasy novel which has been sitting in drafts for over ten years!
Out of respect for the relationship we once had I will spare your life. However, if you try to obstruct me again then I will kill you.
Vampires are now an endangered species. Possessed by the demon Kurai, Kokawa Taku has sworn to eradicate all those whom he deems inferior.
Determined to free Taku from the demon’s corruption Thane seeks help from Taku’s sire, Takata Koji. Thane’s search for answers takes him to Hong Kong where he learns the devastating truth. That in order to save Taku, Thane may have to kill him.
Refusing to accept this, Thane makes a decision that places the fate of all vampires in the balance. However Thane is unaware of the betrayal around him and that his actions will either save Taku or destroy him.
