First up is author J.F. Lewis. He is not new to the scene and has been a guest here on Amberkatze's Book Blog a few times. His fourth book in the Void City series, Burned, has just released and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.
You all have the chance to get to know one of the best characters in the series. Greta, as you will see, is different to the vampires you come across. This interview will definitely give you a chance to see how cool, unusual and awesome this series is.
Enjoy! And don't forget to enter the contest at the end!
Amber - Hello Greta! Thank you for taking the time to answer some questions for my blog readers. How was your Christmas?
Greta - I ate a pony and Dad let me drive Fang through a chicken farm. That was awesome, though very feathery.
Greta - We went to Disney. It was really awesome even though Dad wouldn't let me eat anyone we didn't know. It was kind of like brown bagging it through Paris or something, but I maxed out my score on the Buzz Lightyear ride, so I'm a Galactic Champion or whatever.
Amber - Did you make any New Years resolutions?
Greta - To find out what the hell Dad is hiding from me.
Amber - How is your dad doing? Keeping you busy?
Greta - Yes, I told you he's hiding stuff from me, but I'll figure it out.
Greta - (Pauses and looks confused. Talbot walks over to her and whispers something in her ear.) Talbot says to tell you that I'm Greta from between Crossed and Burned, but if you ask me, if I were in a book, the next one would be about me figuring out what the heck Dad is trying to hide from me and why.
Amber - What is it like working with Jeremy on the books? Does he ask you about your point of view on things?
Greta - (Talbot walks up again. whispers. Greta nods.) It's more like he's a documentarian following me around and writing about whatever I do, then editing it together with his observations on my Dad so that it forms a narrative.
Greta - If I were in a movie, I'd like to be played by someone thin, but not too thin... Callista Flockheart maybe? No, she's too old. Nobody fat though. Oh! They could CGI me! Yes! And then Andy Serkis could perform me. I loved him as Gollum!
Amber - Void City seems to be a very interesting place to live. How do you like it?
Greta - It would be a lot more fun if Dad just let me kill all of the annoying people, but he won't so it's cool, but not as awesome as it should be,
Amber - What do you like to read, watch and listen to? Any recommendations?
Amber - What's your favorite paranormal movie of all time?
Greta - The Wizard of Oz! I sooo want to land a house on someone someday.
Amber - What comes next? Another book? Do you have any plans for the future?
Greta - I've been thinking that maybe I should travel, if that's what you mean, but I don't like to go places by myself and taking Dad somewhere can be problematic. He's sort of a homebody. I think I'd like to find a friend and take them with me to kill lots of people in new and interesting places. Maybe Dad will let me borrow Fang!
