Christine Rains, the wonderful author of The 13th Floor series, has tagged me. I simply answer four questions, and then I tag four new people.

Let’s get started:

1. What are you working on right now?

Right now, I’m plotting book 2 and 3 of Cloaked in Fur. I’m also half way through a new young adult fantasy novel, which is made up of three parts about six characters. It is set in a world filled with witches, steampunk monsters and magic, and at the heart of the story, there’s the struggle to find love.

2. How does it differ from other works in its genre? 

My YA novel is a blend of different genres, which I tend to love doing, plus it’s told from six POVs, and each character brings their own personality and backstory to the mix.

3. What is the hardest part about writing?

The funny thing is that whatever part I’m up to I say is the hardest. Whatever I’m not doing at the time seems like the better option. Hehe. I know, it doesn’t answer the question. Writing the first draft would probably have to be the hardest since you are making up the story with nothing but your imagination and scribbled notes.

4. What would you like to try as a writer that you haven’t yet?

I’ve always wanted to try a mystery… like a ‘who done it’. Maybe one day:)

We finally get to see the sixth instalment in Christine Rains’ The 13th Floor series, The Ghost. I can’t wait to get my hands on this story, and the cover has me very intrigued.

TheGhostcover2

Title: The Ghost (The 13th Floor series, #6)

Author: Christine Rains

Genre: paranormal romance

Release date: July 13th, 2013

Blurb:

Chiharo Black lives with six supernatural tenants in a haunted building’s mysterious thirteenth floor. Of course, no one knows she’s there except the cats. Being a ghost can be a bit frustrating and lonely, but it isn’t as bad as her mother made it out to be.

Until another ghost intrudes on her territory. Jeremy Emerson wants revenge on the vampire that killed him and won’t stop until he has it. To top it off, a nightmarish shade sneaks in and leeches the energy from the building’s residents before setting its sights on Chiharo and the thirteenth floor. She can’t decide which one is more frightening: the one wanting to eat her soul or the one who might win her heart.

Chiharo must convince Jeremy to stand with her against the hellish parasite. If they cannot work together, the greedy fiend will not only drain their energy but everything that supports the thirteenth floor’s existence.

1305 & 1306 – The Oracle and the Vampire, the fifth story in The 13th Floor Series from Christine Rains is out. Being lucky enough to read Christine’s stories before they are launched, I highly recommend this instalment. In fact, I love the entire series… such a cool premise, and each character is unique, with their out set of problems.

Now, here’s Christine with what you’ll expect in this instalment:

BANSHEES & VAMPIRES

The fifth book of the 13th Floor series brings two classic legends to life. Vampires are seductive creatures that we see a lot in paranormal romances, but banshees are rare. Paired together, we have something never seen before.

There are countless legends of the vampire. I took the traditional path with my vampire Kiral. He can’t go out in daylight, he heals swiftly, and has preternatural strength and senses. But I gave him a flaw we see often in our modern world. He’s an addict with a craving for blood laced with drugs. He must drink human blood to survive, and having it spiked with something extra helps him forget he’s living a life he never asked for.

Myths of banshees declare them fairies or ghosts of mothers who have had their children taken from them. In my story, Harriet is a lovely young witch cursed by a jealous fairy. Harriet lives her normal life during the day, but becomes a hideous hag at night plagued by visions of death that compel her to scream in mourning.

This unlikely pair face monsters in a city in chaos. Yet more frightening are the demons lurk within themselves.

What are your favorite supernatural beings that have more to fear from themselves than anything else?

Title: 1305 & 1306 – The Oracle and the Vampire (The 13th Floor series, #5)

Author: Christine Rains

Genre: paranormal romance

Release date: May 13th, 2013

Blurb:

Having fallen for her gorgeous neighbor might not be so bad if Harriet McKay wasn’t in her hideous banshee form every time Kiral saw her. Such is her curse. True, he’s a vampire struggling with a drug addiction, but he’s a good soul. Yet no one could love a cursed witch, especially one not even her cats respect.

After having a vision of Kiral’s death, Harriet makes it her mission to save him. Never before has she attempted to change fate, but so strong is her love. 

Kiral Ozdemir struggles to make it through every day. The craving for blood laced with drugs directs his every thought until he tastes Harriet’s potent blood. The magic immediately addicts him, but she disappears. He’s desperate to find her, racing blindly into a city in chaos.

How can Harriet convince Kiral to see past her vile appearance and return her love? If only she can force him to listen to reason coming from a raving crone, perhaps she can save him from the demons hunting him and from himself.
