Congratulations to “Casey”, the winner of Angela’s giveaway. Thank you to all who participated.

Thank you, JPR, for inviting me here. Since I’ve been out of town, I asked my heroine, Val, to get some interview questions answered by Kade, a vampire prince and the hero of my debut, Bad Mouth. Haven’t had a chance to review the transcripts or video, though. I had some really great, hard-hitting questions for him about his feelings on how he came to power and what his plans are for the Immortalis as well as his plans on dealing with the complications of his relationship with Val. Should be some great, dramatic stuff here…

Kade: Now tell me again why we’re doing this?

Ezra: Because Val said so.

Kade: I don’t answer to her.

Ezra grins his Cheshire grin and says nothing.

Kade: Fu—

Ezra: No cussing, degenerate. I’m recording this for general audiences.

Kade (under his breath): I’m not gonna live through this.

Ezra: You’re like a whiny little girl.

Kade: This whiny girl’s going to put a boot so far up—

Ezra (holds up a hand): I haven’t tasted leather yet, junior. Now let me get this over with before Val has my head on a platter.

Kade (laughing): I told you she’s turning into a tyrant.

Ezra: You’re rubbing off on her. Besides, you’re the one hovering too much and getting her in a pissy mood.

Kade (with a flash of fangs): Stop talking to my woman, Ezra.

Ezra (grinning): Not my fault she likes me more than you.

Kade: You did have a reason for wasting my time?

Ezra (clears throat and shuffles papers on the coffee table in front of him): It appears Val had a few discussions with a Ms. Angela McCallister, a woman intent on writing a biographical story about your rise to—

…Ezra laughs, bending forward in his seat and crumpling the papers in his hand…
—your rise to pow— 
…another laugh…

Kade: Will you spit it all out before you choke, asshat?

Ezra (clears his throat again and wipes at his eyes): About how you came to head the Immortalis.

Kade: So she made me look good.

Ezra: Actually, a lot of reviewers said you were a complete dic—jerk. In fact, they rather liked me.

Kade (with a grunt and a frown): See what happens when you leave things up to a woman?

Ezra: She got the story from Val.

Kade: Exactly my point.

Ezra: Well, well. Not so in love anymore, are we?

Kade (looking everywhere but at his friend): I’d bend the world backward to her will and kneel at her feet, Ezra. So shut the fu—heck up.

Kade’s cell phone rings, and he speaks briefly to the caller before turning back to Ezra.

Kade: You’re not going to believe this. That was Killian. Someone’s murdered a newly-turned fledgling.

Ezra: You going to leave Val’s side in her condition?

Kade laughs.

Ezra: Then what?

Kade: You’re dealing with it. The team’s yours while I work with Ptolomy and take care of Val. Damn, I wish you could see the look on your face. Almost makes up for you talking to my woman.

Ezra (trades scowl for a wide grin): Afraid I’ll steal your human away from you?

Kade: I’m gonna laugh to my grave when you fall for the oldest vampire Ancient to walk the earth.

Ezra (returns to his scowl): Don’t even curse me that way.

Kade: Okay, we’re done here.

Ezra (waves the crumpled papers): We didn’t answer any of these.

Kade (stands and heads away from the camera): Done, you albino motherfu—

  7. I love how you involve your readers in on your books. I have read almost all of them. They pull you in and you cant just put the book down. Just one more chapter I promise and then I’ll cook dinner. Three hours later you hear your own stomach rumbling, lol cant wait to read the newest one. thank you

  8. Angela, this had me rolling with laughter. I cant wait for Bad Cop!!!

  9. I loved Bad Mouth and I already know I’m going to love Bad Cop!!! You just keep on writing Angela!

  10. Oh Angela! This had me cracking up!! I love all the things that almost came out of Kade’s mouth. I can’t wait for Bad Cop to come out so we can find out more about the Immortalis.

  11. Angela, I loved this interview! I could actually envision Kade’s expression throughout. How funny this was! Oh poor, poor Ezra to have to deal with Kade at this point in time. I so very much loved Bad Mouth; waiting for Bad Cop is such an ordeal. Thanks for the great interview.

  12. “Actually, a lot of reviewers said you were a complete dic—jerk. In fact, they rather liked me.”

    Yes we do! We really, really do. 😉

    And on that note can I join in on the fangirling of this series?

  13. This is one fantastic blog post. I have not had the pleasure of reading this story yet but after seeing the interaction between these two, I know I want to read more!

    Great job! 🙂

    • That is awesome! Ezra is big on needling Kade, and you’ll see that in Bad Mouth, but you’ll find in the upcoming book, Bad Cop, that the whole team of Kade’s has a bantery way of interacting. I’m sure I get this from my military experience. This is really how we show affection, lol.

  14. Fun interview
