Author Interview – Amber Kallyn

Can you share a little of your current work with us? Sure. I just released the fourth book of my Heart of a Vampire series. Now I’m working on a historical paranormal trilogy about a tiger shapeshifting princess : ) It’s definitely different, going from modern times to historical, but fun, too.

Who designed the cover? I was lucky to find a wonderful cover artist. Dawne at http://dusktildawndesigns.com/

Will you write others in the same genre? Absolutely. I love writing the paranormal. You never know what’s going to happen.

How important do you think villains are in a story? Writing paranormal, villains are integral to my plots and giving my characters someone to help them learn and grow.

Who is your favorite author and why? Stephen King. He can suck you into another world in just a few words, and then keep you there over hundreds of pages. He truly is a master.

What books have most influenced your life? I think with just about every book I read that touches me in some way, influences me. If a book makes you think long after you read ‘The End’, then you kind of always keep a part of it inside you.

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? Hells yeah. Many, many, and many more ; )

What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out? The internet is #1. There are so many yahoo loops dedicated to authors sharing information about the industry, writing, you name it. New authors can search and find them, then start soaking up all the knowledge shared by others. And there truly are so many authors out there happy to help and share.

What contributes to making a writer successful? Write. Write some more. Study the craft. Read for pleasure. Then get back to writing. It takes time and practice, just like learning and becoming good at any new thing.

Do you have any advice for writers? Find a critique group. To me, that’s the number one tool to becoming a better writer. Critique other people’s writing, and you’ll begin seeing your own mistakes easier. Let other’s crit your writing, and they’ll show you things you didn’t see before.

The key is finding a good group, but there’s a lot of information out on the internet on how to do that.

When a mortal cop must delve into the paranormal, only a Viking vampire can save her soul, and her heart.

Detective Celeste Wilder knows who she is, a damn fine cop. But when the recently dubbed ‘Cult Murders’ start back up, this time targeting city prostitutes she’s sworn to protect, she’s thrown into a world of paranormal creatures she never believed existed. And now, they’re out to keep her from uncovering even more secrets.

An immortal Viking vampire, Brandon Wulfgar knows something is strange the moment he sees Celeste valiantly fighting for her life against a group of rogue vampires. When he’s asked to work with her–solve the crime while keeping the mortal woman safe–he figures no problem.

But as the undeniable connection between them grows and danger appears from every side, they will have to trust one another not just for their lives, but for their very souls.
