30 Days of Demons – Day 14 – WIN Angel with Attitude

***Thank you to all the commenters! The winners of the signed copy of Angel with Attitude is comment #2o — April Monroe! Congrats! April has been contacted by email to claim her prize.***

Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post in order to be in the running for a signed copy of one of two books Charlene Teglia is generously giving away.

AwA_new_200pxMy first foray into the world of angels and demons was indirectly inspired by one of my favorite TV shows at the time — Angel. Yes, I started writing about angels because my favorite vampire was named Angel. Angel with Attitude started its life as a mystery novel I wrote or Nanowrimo 2004 where a fallen angel worked to solve cases and do good in the world in order to be redeemed and go back to heaven. The original draft is nothing like was published in July 2006.

I rewrote it entirely after I was first contracted by Warner Books and it became a fun romp to the Underworld to find the key to heaven, involving a fallen angel who doesn’t know why she was kicked out of heaven, her talking rat sidekick (a man turned into a rat by his witch girlfriend), and — who better as a love interest for an angel? A demon, of course. Nathaniel, the tempter demon, was very interesting to write. A…reluctant demon. One who had to do his job and lure the beautiful Valerie to hell or there would be, uh, hell to pay.angel_cover_150

I’m still asked to this day if there will be any sequels to this book. The answer: Nope. I said everything I wanted to about these characters and remember them very fondly. If it wasn’t for this book, I likely never would have come up with the idea for The Demon in Me. However, there are no talking rats in that one. Yet.

I’d like to give away a signed copy of Angel with Attitude (original cover) to a commenter. This contest is open to everyone, no matter where you live. Please comment and tell me — what movie, TV show, or book has been your favorite that features angels and/or demons? I’ll pick a winner at random on Friday, April 16th at 9:00 pm EST.

    I think that I would have to say that Constantine is my favorite “angel/demon” movie. It was such a great foray into the world of heaven and hell and how the forces of good and evil work to control the world.

    Supernatural. It has a great mixture of demons and angels – especially right now. Plus I have a big ole’ crush on one angel named Castiel on the show though I call him Angel Food Cake.

    Angel is a big favorite of mine, even though I haven’t got past the 2nd season. Supernatural, however, was my obsession all last year (the Winchester brothers are gorgeous!).

    I think a book with a talking rat is just what my collection needs. =)

    Michelle, Im a new fan of yours so I havent read Angel with Attitude yet, but its on my list of books to read. As for Angel/Demon books or shows, I have to go with you on Angel being one of my favorites. I love Buffy and Angel like I love Bella and Edward, lol! Also Maureen Child did two books called A Fiend In Need and More Than Fiends that were awesome and totally funny books about Demons and a Demon Duster. I would say Supernatural too, but I like that one more for Sam and Dean then the demons, lol!

    My favorite book series with Angels/Demons is Lords of the Underworld by Gena Showalter. Her angels are warriors who are cursed with demons inside their bodies. Talk about termoil!

    I’m extremely partial to this series because (1) this was my first encounter with paranormal books and (2) it’s just that good.

    Thanks for the contests Michelle. They are so much fun. :)

    I love everything with angels/demons! :-)

    My favourite series was Angels in America, so many fantastic actors and brilliant script, that was a wonderful series!

    Another character which embodies the angel/demon contradiction is Angel/Angelus from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I loved his tortured, repenting way to atone for the horrors he committed as a soulless vampire, but of course he had the funniest lines when he became the cruel monster without any inhibitions.

    Thank you for this giveaway!

    The tv show Supernatural is by far a favorite of mine. Great storylines with many different mythological creatures and the gorgeous Jensen Ackles…what more could a girl want.

    I’d have to say that ’til this day Buffy is still my favorite tv show about supernatural stuff. Don’t get me wrong Angel is up in my Top 5 for sure but I loved Buffy. I absolutely love your books. Even if I don’t get Angel with Attitude this time I’m going to continue trying even if it takes me ’til I’m 40 (which is highly improbable seeing as though I’m 16. Haha.) Please keep writing all your wonderful books and more!
    Oh and I just want to thank you because thanks to you and many other writers like you have inspired me to read much more and I’m currently working on three seperate books of my own.Once again, thank you so much for your writing! *crosses fingers and smiles*

    I’d say Buffy the Vampire Slayer trumps everything, but Supernatural also has a special place in my heart. :)

    I just finished reading And Falling, Fly by Skyler White and loved Olivia’s character. I cannot recall any other books I have read with angels as of late.

My favorite TV show that features angels and demons is Supernatural(The Winchester brothers are SEXY!!), my favorite Movie is Angels & Demons, my favorite Books are Richelle Mead’s Succubus On Top series(Which has a twist of Angels and Hells creatures having a War, REALLY GOOD!) I also like your Demon Princess Series & Angel Attitude (THEY TOTAL ROCK & BEAT ANYTHING!! ^_^).

    My favorite angel book/series is by author Nalini Singh. Guild Hunter is the series name and the first book is Angels’ Blood. It is where a vampire hunter falls in love with an Archangel. I have to say though, that your Demon Princess series is also one of my favorites. I can barely wait until May for the second book to be released.

    I too loved Angel and was heartbroken when the series ended. I also enjoyed the movies City of Angels with Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage and Michael with John Travolta. I know I’ve read quite a few books featuring angels, but for the life of me, I can’t recall any of them.

    I loved Angel, Charmed…and although I have read books with angels in them I don’t remember the names at the moment. I have thought of watching Supernatrual, but I haven’t gotten into it yet.

    Would LOVE to win Angel With Attitude…all your books are great and that is one I have not read yet!

    Supernatural (TV show) wins hands down for me. The guys are soooo sexy and the brothers have this really emotional I’m gonna save you/No, I’m gonna save you hero attitude going on. It’s the current Buffy of TV! They deal with everything but if you’ve been watching the last 2 seasons you’ll know the big picture is angels against demons.

    I’m reading a series of books by Natasha Rhodes. Angels are a big part of it. Pretty complicated story. I need a refresher to remember how it all works. Been awhile between her last book and the new one coming. Her next book is out in May just like your own. May is going to be a great month for new books out. :)

    I’m going to have to say Kate Douglas’ Demonslayers series. I’ve only read the first one – Demonfire – but I’m looking forward to the 2nd of 3 which is Hellfire.

    I never thought I would love books about Angels as much as I do. It’s all about the great writing and less about the initial topic.
