I’ve been a vampire fan since the first time I saw them in movies. Even when they were “out of style”, I still read vamp books. Today’s author is here with the second book in a series, and it features the two vampires I got to know and love in Never Change, the novella companion to this series. Welcome Shari Sakurai!
Was there a horror movie you refused to watch because the previews were too scary?
The human centipede. This wasn’t because it looked too scary though, it’s because it just looked horrible!
If you watch horror movies, are you the person who yells at the characters, covers your eyes, or falls asleep?
I’m definitely the person who is yelling ‘look behind you!’ or ‘watch out for…!’
Do you ever see figures in your peripheral vision?
I do sometimes and they never fail to make me jump!
If you decided to write a spinoff of a side character, who would you choose?
I would choose Akito Okada who is one of the antagonists of the series. He has some rare abilities as a vampire that in the series he chooses to use for his own selfish gains. I would like to explore his character and abilities in more depth in his own novel.
How do you celebrate when you finish writing a book?
I will buy myself a gift to say ‘well done’ and then start with the editing!
What are you working on now?
I have just finished working on the third novel in my Perfect World series. I plan on writing the fourth novel next and the fourth book in my Demon’s Blood series.
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.
