Happy Independence Day to everyone else to who lives in the United States! (Please don’t blow yourself up.)
Or, if you live in the old country:
Today, I’m still enjoying my beach-side view for a final day in the company of my awesome husband. I think there are brunch plans in my immediate future.
If you are not having brunch today (or even if you are), make sure to take a few moments to stop by the online home of YA paranormal author Jessica Knauss to check out my interview with Steel Magic protagonist Toria Connor! It’s a little bit weird to interview someone who is functionally part of my brain. But that’s the cool part about being a writer. Imaginary friends become totally acceptable! Here’s a small taste:
Your mom is a vampire? What is the rest of your family like?
Just as epic. Grandpa is also a vampire. He found me as a baby after my parents died, but didn’t really want the responsibility of a kid, so he took me to his progeny. Mama also had no interest in a kid, but that’s where Dad stepped in. He’s a daywalker—a human bonded to my mom, which grants him long life, too. Kane, the guy I consider my brother, is my partner in all things magic and mercenary, since we’re a bonded warrior-mage pair. And Syri, my best friend, is an elf. We’re definitely not a normal bunch around the dinner table. Especially since it’s breakfast for half of them.
