Hard Bitten
by Chloe Neill | Interview

Q: When people ask me what Chicagoland Vampires is about, I start to answer by saying that it's about Merit, but truth be told, it's about so much more. There are all kinds of plots running through the series: romantic plots, political plots, familial plots. How do you answer that question to encompass the whole?
The Chicagoland Vampires series is, first and foremost, about a regular, book-loving girl, Merit, being thrown into a world of strategic, political, and chic vampires.

Taking Back His Widow
by Kerri Williams | Interview

Q: I'm going to start with confessing that Australian geography is not my subject. But the coastal town TAKING BACK HIS WIDOW was set in really captivated and charmed me. Is the coastal town you set the story in real and what made you chose it as the location for Liv's escape?
"Maple Cove" was loosely based on a small town I used to live in ten years ago when we had our second child. Tin Can Bay is a small town on the coast of Queensland. It's quite large now, but back then, it was like a close knit community where you didn't lock your doors and your dog had multiple families...
