*GIVEAWAY IS OVER*
I am very excited to have had the opportunity to ask one of my favorite authors, Larissa Ione, some questions about one of my favorite series, The Demonica Series! If you have not read this series you are missing out! Not only are they wonderfully written, but there are hot scenes galore, and the brothers will have you crushing over them one minute, and laughing the next. Let's see what the wonderful Larissa has to say shall we!
Welcome to Hanging with Bells Larissa!
Sin is such a unique character. Did you know anything about her character when you started writing the Demonica series?
First off, I just want to thank you for having me! And what great questions! Which I should answer before I keep babbling... Okay, Sin...actually, I did have an inkling about her early on in the series. Not at the very beginning, but by the time I was on book 2, Desire Unchained, I knew that one of the half-siblings I wanted to write about would be a female. I also figured that as a one of a kind, a "Smurfette," she'd have a bit of an attitude. I just wasn't sure how, exactly, her story would play out.
I absolutely love Conall (he is a book boyfriend now) and love that he fit in so well with the other characters. I also loved that his character was able to shed light on different Paranormal Species. Is there another Paranormal Species that you haven't written about that you would like to?
Angels -- of both the fallen and unfallen varieties. I just loved writing Reaver so much that the world of the fallen angel grabbed me and, in fact, I do have plans for him. *wrings hands and cackles*
I love all of the covers for the books in this series. Sin Undone is black and white. Is there a reason for that?
Ooh...I love Sin's cover!!! I had hoped for one just like it. Now, I know the cover looks black and white, but in person, it has a foil overlay just like the other books, so it's really more silver and black, and is very pretty in person. I think that next to the other books (in person) it fits in very well.
Sin Undone is the last of the Demonica series. Will we see any of the Demonica characters again?
Absolutely! Several Demonica characters play large roles in the new series, the Lords of Deliverance, about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. In the first book, Eternal Rider we even visit Underworld General, so yeah, we'll see them. They aren't going anywhere! *g*
Any plans for any other series other than the Lords of Deliverance?
Not right now. My Sydney Croft partner, Stephanie Tyler, and I just wrapped up the ACRO series we write together, so right now I'm concentrating only on the Lords of Deliverance series. I do have other ideas, but for now, I'm sticking with my Horsemen and demons! Thanks again for having me and for all the great questions!!!
Big thanks to Larissa for answering my questions. The fangirl in me just squee'd when I learned that I would be able to ask her something. I have read Sin Undone and let me tell you that it was all that I hoped it would be! It was bittersweet reading it knowing that it was going to be the last in the Demonica Series, but it ended with a bang! Sin and Con are hot and are perfect for each other!
