30 DAYS OF DEMONS begins!

DemonInMe_coverTHE DEMON IN ME, the first book in my new Living in Eden series, is out exactly thirty days from today — May 4th. Hooray!

I plan to blog every day for each of these thirty days about the subject of the book and about DEMONS in general. There will be snippets, inside info about my writing process and this book in general, discussion of demonic entertainment (think Buffy and Supernatural!), and also I have some fantastic GUESTS AND PRIZES lined up — authors who also like this particular subject enough to include demons in their books.

I’m still gathering some guests, but right now I have the following fabulous ladies scheduled (check back to this post as I’ll be adding more guests as they’re confirmed):

April 6th – MICHELE BARDSLEY – Michele is giving away a $10 Gift Card for Barnes & Noble!

April 9th – JILL MYLES – Jill is giving away a signed copy of Gentlemen Prefer Succubi!

April 12th – LARISSA IONE – Larissa is giving away winner’s choice of any one signed book in her NYT Bestselling Demonica series or a Demonica totebag!

April 15th – CHARLENE TEGLIA – Charlene is giving away a signed copy of Wicked Hot and Claimed by the Wolf!

April 19th – JACKIE KESSLER – Jackie is giving away a signed copy of Hell’s Belles!

April 22nd – Q&A with urban fantasy author of The Mage in Black JAYE WELLS

April 26th – JACQUELYN FRANK – Jacquelyn is giving away a signed copy of Noah!

My 30 Days of Demons will culminate on May 4th when I’ll be throwing my usual virtual release party right here on the blog. You know, virtual drinks, chocolate fountain, munchies, PRIZES, the works! I spare no expense, people. None. I throw a fantastic virtual party and you’re all invited!

So that’s what’s up for the month. Hope you can join me to celebrate the darker side of heroes (and, yes, sometimes villains!) — the great thing about demons, in my honest opinion, is that they’re the ultimate bad boys (or girls), a step beyond the somewhat defanged vampires of late. I don’t see them as being true evil — this is a fictional take on a very interesting subject not a religious discussion.

I believe (fictional) demons can be conflicted about right and wrong. In my books it’s all about the choices characters make (and this included my Immortality Bites series). Anyone, no matter what they are or where they came from or what their past includes, can choose good if they want to. Writing about demons doesn’t mean you’re glorifying the bad, it means you’re talking about redemption and hope even in the darkest corners of the heart. Shut off from heaven (aka: the embodiment of “good”), can someone still choose to do the right thing? I think so. And when a demon falls in love….well, watch out. You’re never going to find a more protective hero than that. At least, that’s how it rolls in paranormal romance.

I also write about demons in my YA Demon Princess books. In that, the 16-year-old heroine is half-demon. She’s not evil, of course, but she needs to deal with powers that could get out of her control and the true nature of good vs. evil. If she’s half-demon is she auts4_lorne3omatically evil? Do other people’s perceptions of who you are shape the person you become?

Ah, my themes. Gotta love ’em. They keep showing up time and time again!

I wanna know, to kick things off with a question. What is your favorite TV show, movie, book that features a demon character? I’ll throw one out here — I loved Angel because among many other demonic characters, it featured Lorne. He wasn’t that much of a romantic hero, but he was funny, charming, a kickass singer who owned a nightclub, and not the least bit evil unless he was pushed to the breaking point. So….what’s yours?

    My first real brush with likeable demons was actually just this year. I decided to pick up Larissa Ione’s Pleasure Unbound in January and couldn’t put it down! I love the series and was never thought a demon could be a hero; but I love the idea, and Lore is my favorite demon so far :)

    I’ve enjoyed the main characters in Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series. They’re not demons per se, they’re immortal warriors bound by demons and they constantly fight the demons. If they let the demons take over, they’ll lose themselves and become the demon.

    Although I read paranormal romance I have not come across any demon related stuff that caught my fancy, so this 30 days of demons is exactly what I need! Maybe I’ll find some really cool authors this way! And of course I’ll be buying a copy of The Demon In Me…cause it sounds amazing!
