Caress of Darkness giveaway

I also had the pleasure of interviewing Julie for the 1,001 Dark Nights Monthly Newsletter.

Here is a snippet:

I have to tell you, I absolutely adored Caress of Darkness and it grabbed me from the very beginning. This novella kicks off a new paranormal series for you and has an interesting hero. I would love to know your inspiration behind it and his abilities.

Thank you!! I’m thrilled you enjoyed Caress of Darkness, because I am totally in love with this series … and these heroes!

As for inspiration, in a way, it was self-inspired, LOL! I absolutely love the erotic romances that I’m writing as J. Kenner. The characters, the stories, the drama, the heat. And I have always loved writing paranormal, which I’ve written throughout my entire writing career (both light and dark paranormal). So I wanted to create a paranormal series with heroes as sexy, commanding, enigmatic (and, yes, dangerous) as the Stark, Stark International, and Most Wanted heroes. But I also wanted to add a paranormal flair. But how? I don’t recall exactly how I came up with the immortal concept (too many viewings of Highlander, perhaps) but it was the idea of the phoenix fire that truly got my creative juices flowing.

Speaking of the new series, do you already have an idea of how many books it will be?

Honestly, it depends on how readers respond. The series is set up to have quite a few books … and I am dying to write all of them. Right now, I have plans for Raine’s story (Caress of Darkness), Mal’s story (Find Me in Darkness, Find Me in Pleasure, Find Me in Passion), and Dante’s story (Caress of Pleasure, the next 1001 Dark Nights novella).

If readers respond to the series the way I hope they will, then there are several more stories after that featuring other heroes that readers will meet in both Caress of Darkness and in the Find Me trilogy.

Which is a long way of saying five books minimum, but the world is big and vibrant enough to fill over a dozen stories, and I hope to do just that!

Your recent releases have been primarily erotic romance, are you exited to get back into the paranormal world?

I am! I love paranormal stories—they’re larger than life and get my imagination flowing. The possibilities are truly endless. And the truth is, I was weaned on paranormal and SciFi books and television. So in a lot of ways, paranormal is my comfort zone.

There have been a lot of paranormal books made into movies. Do you have a favorite adaptation?

I’m going to have to go back to the classics on this one, because I think Rosemary’s Baby is one of the best book adaptations ever (paranormal or not!).
