Paranormal Fall Fling hosted by Gabrielle Bisset

Welcome to this stop on Blood Spirit's Tour!!  I have had the privelage of putting Gabrielle on The Rack.  This is what I was able to torture out of her....Muahahahaahahahhahahahahaahhhahahhaha!
Hello and Welcome to CEWTNK!  I’m so happy to have you here visiting in my dungeon and sharing your newest work.  Don’t mind the noise from the prisoners err guests, they get noisy during their…treatments..lol.  Let me clear a spot so you can have a seat.  Would you like some refreshments before you get started?
I better keep my wits about me, so no drinking yet. How about an iced tea?
So I have to ask…Why Vampires?
Why not vampires? They're sensual, have the whole oral thing going for them, and are eternally the age they were when they were turned (and of course, mine are all young).
Tell us a little bit about the special series addition your running just for this month.
I'm currently in the middle of my Blood Spirit/Sons of Navarus Paranormal Fall Fling. It's a huge celebration of the release of the third book in the Sons of Navarus series, Blood Spirit, and a special box set called the Blood and Dreams Box Set that includes Vampire Dreams Revamped, Blood Avenged, and Blood Betrayed.
What first sparked the series idea?
In one word it was Vasilije. He was the bad boy in the original Vampire Dreams and readers fell in love with him. They wanted more of him, more of his story, so I began to brainstorm ideas and that's where the Sons of Navarus series came from.  
What is the key element in your character creation?
I need to know what a character's past involved to really know who he or she is. I may not include every bit of it in the story, but the character's past always colors their part in the story. For example, Terek was a monk before being turned vampire. That deep belief in something spiritual is a key component of who he is still today.

Who is the character that in your opinion everyone is going to fall in love with?
In Blood Spirit, it will be Terek. He's got a very sensual thing about him, along with that mystical vibe. It's very sexy. In the Sons series overall, there will be a hero for every woman. Each Son is different, so there will be one for everyone. Vasilije is pure sensuality, whereas Saint is the quintessential brooding, haunted hero. Ramiel is the violent Son, but his past has shaped him to be who he is. Thane is the nice guy Son. Sion is the smart Son—logical and rational, but you know what they say—still waters run deep. Dante is the joker, good time boy. Nico is the oldest Son made vampire in the time the Greek gods reigned supreme. And he looks like a Greek god.
I have to ask, what are the hardest scenes for you to write?
Fight scenes. While I'm a very physical person, I'm not a man, so I don't have a real firsthand experience with hand-to-hand fighting. I do have a beta reader especially for that, and it's always funny how he reacts to my fight scenes. His beta reads always result in serious revisions, but I'm getting better at them.
How would you rate the sex scenes throughout the series?
The sex scenes are smokin' hot. My characters are adults and vampires are very sexual, so it's quite sensual when they get together. These are definitely not books for readers who prefer euphemisms or sweet sex scenes. It's an erotic paranormal romance, with the focus equally on the erotic and paranormal.
Are there any of these in your books?  (Hands Gab one of the toy boxes on the right)
That blindfold looks a bit like one Ramiel uses. ;) And Terek is all about his Roman bath, although that's not in the box.
Do you see yourself writing anymore stories in this series or a spin-off?
There are eight heroes, so they're all clamoring for me to tell their stories. As for a spin off, well, I won't rule anything out. ;)

Are any of your characters reflective of you?
So far in the Sons series, I'd have to say no. But I do have a character in one of my other books, a heroine named Thea in Destiny Redeemed, that I would say is as close to me as I'd ever want a character to be. As a rule, though, I don't write myself into characters. I write characters I either fantasize about meeting or fantasize being.

Tell us about some up and coming books.
The rest of the books in the series will complete the story of the civil war between the Sons of Navarus and the Archons, the law and order vampires. After that, who knows?

Will any of your characters from this series cameo in other future books?
I don't have any plans for that now, but I won't rule that out either, like the spin-off. However, there are two Sons in addition to Vasilije who appear in the Sons prequel, Vampire Dreams Revamped.
Where can we find you for future updates?
I'm all over! LOL  Readers can find me at my blog, website, Facebook, Twitter, and at the Sons of Navarus Facebook page.
Any future touring in the works?
I'm always doing something with my books, so readers can definitely find me out and about for future books.
What can we expect on your next  visit…which by the way is very soon!!!!
The next time will be an interview with Terek. I've talked with him several times, and he's a dream to spend time with.
I’m so happy you have made this a stop.  Would you like a tour of the..err…chambers ?  J I can introduce you to the “guests”, if you just hand me that box back.
Lead the way! It's been great hanging out here with you. :)
So we are leaving you with this great giveaway and after Gab has sampled some treats from the dungeons chambers, we will be back to answer questions!!!
The Sons of Navarus series continues...

I am everything you seek. I am vampire.

Blessed with the gift of telepathy, Terek always knows what a woman wants. His gift has afforded him nightly sensual pleasures and exotic treats for centuries, but beneath the surface he yearns for much more.

Ilona can give him what his soul craves, but only if he trusts his heart. One fateful choice made out of desire puts all he cares for in danger. With a civil war and the threat of Archon hunters at every turn, this Son may lose everything if he can't find the balance between heart and mind.
