***Thanks to everyone for your comments and thanks to Jacquelyn Frank for visiting! The randomly selected winner of the signed copy of NOAH is comment #6 — Heather (DarklyReading)! Heather has been contacted by email to claim her prize.***

To celebrate the countdown to my new release, the first book in the Living in Eden series, THE DEMON IN ME (officially out next Tuesday!!), I’m blogging every day (well, no, but it was a nice idea) — and some days I have fabulous guests and prizes!

Today it’s New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank , author of The Gatherers, The Nightwalkers, and The Shadowdwellers series. She’s generously giving away a signed copy of Noah, one each to two randomly selected commenters (US only please). Winner will be chosen Wednesday, April 28th at 9:00 p.m. EST**. Good luck!

What inspired you to write about demons?

I think I like turning convention on it’s ear. When I wrote my Demons, it was still very taboo to come right out and say they were Demons. I like doing taboo things. Hehehe.

Demons — shades of gray or always evil?

Shades of grey….even shades of white knights! Sometimes it’s all about the word ‘demon’. As a largely Christian society, we attach a lot of baggage to that word. I left the baggage at the airport and made my Demon the good guys :)

What’s your demonically awesome book about?

The Nightwalkers series is largely about the Demons, their culture and all the things wrong and right about it. Humans are an afterthought in most cases, and yet those pesky humans keep causing so much trouble! When they look at Demons, they expect to see creatures curst by hell, and eventually by their own prejudices they create what they are looking for. In the middle of all of this, my Demons are awakened to all new possibilities of satisfying true love. Something they thought they had lost…something they themselves have killed off the possibility of.

Let’s say Jim Cameron calls and he wants to make JACOB into a movie. Who are your actor/actress choices?

OMG!! James Cameron!! OMG!!! There are only like, three directors I would allow to touch my series. JC, Steven Speilberg and Joss Whedon. But I think my ultimate Jacob would be Gerard Butler. He has the power, the hotness…and I would love to be called as a consultant…(drool). Erm, as for the actress. Kate Beckinsale springs to mind for Isabella. Her range is amazing. She’d do her justice.

What’s your one line of advice for aspiring writers (demonic or otherwise)?

Keep on dreaming. You never know when that bright moment of serendipity will shine and suddenly…all the work and passion you’ve put into it will be worth it. Someone will see it for what it is. Someone will lift it up and think the world of you and your talent.

Thanks Jaquelyn!

    Love Jacquelyn’s books! I’m not in the U.S. but my sister, who is also a major fan, does. So this entry is for her.

    Have fun at RT Michelle!

    I haven’t read any of Frank’s books but have heard great things about them and always love the grey area when it comes to the evilness of characters :D

    I have several of the books in the Nightwalkers & Shadowdwellers series on my TBR shelf, but haven’t had a chance to read them yet. I believe I’m missing Noah though, so it would be awesome to win it.

    I love Jacquelyn’s Nightwalker series and I love how they weren’t the typical demons. They were good guys that had powers. Jacob was my favorite but Noah’s fire power was better.

    I have read only Jacob and loved it. I have the next two in the series waiting to be read.
    I liked the actors you picked to play them.
