Please help me welcome today’s guest, Everlyn C Thompson…
Please tell us a little about yourself, where are you from?
I was born and raised in Alberta. I love to spend time outdoors, but when it’s cold out you can find me inside writing, knitting, baking and talking to my houseplants.
Why did you choose this genre (is it something you’ve written in before)?
I write paranormal romance and urban fantasy because thats what I love to read. I want to give my readers the same feeling I get when I read books by my favorite authors.
Was there anything unusual, any anecdote about this book, the characters, title, process, etc, you’d like to share?
I wrote this book during the covid lockdown because I maxed out all of the digital downloads on all three of my library cards for the month and I had nothing to read.
What is the most difficult thing about writing a book?
Finding time. Life keeps getting in the way.
What was the most difficult thing about this one in particular?
It was my first attempt at writing, so I wasn’t sure if I could do it – and once it was finished, I wasn’t sure if it was any good.
What do you love that most people don’t like and wouldn’t understand why you do?
Mustard on everything. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
Do you collect anything?
Rubber ducks. It started as a small hobby when I was 16, and somehow snowballed into hundreds of ducks taking over my basement.
What’s the main thing that you could get rid of in your life that would give you more writing time?
Responsibilities. If I didn’t have to bother with all the tasks that come with being a human being, then I’d have so much more time to write. Showering, brushing my hair, getting dressed, eating, sweeping the floors—it all takes so much time that would be better spent writing.
What do you want readers to come away with after they read A Flock of Vampires?
The overwhelming need to leave a positive review. Seriously, the more stars the better.
What is your favorite quote?
Anna: Okay, can I just say something crazy? Hans: I love crazy!
If you could be a character in any of your books, who would you be?
Keltti (from A Flock of Vampires) or Theo (from my Grave Reaper Series) because they both end up finding happily ever after.
Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
My characters are 100% fictional. If I was lucky enough to know any super hot vampires or fae, I wouldn’t be sitting at my laptop writing about them because I’d be too busy hanging out with them.
As an elite Vampire Warrior, Stu’s only goal is helping his race survive the war-until a Witch stumbles into the crosshairs, and he realizes he’s found his true mate.
The Vampire looked down at her. His eyes glinted harshly in the moonlight, a warning that he was even more dangerous than the Vampire’s that had attacked them. And didn’t that just make her want to…
Yeah, she wanted to kiss him. Not a friendly kiss, but a passionate one, full of the life that she was grateful for. Would he meet her halfway? Judging by his feral expression, he was more interested in killing something with his bare hands than humoring a lonely Witch.
