Day three of Simply Ali's
Authors After Dark Birthday Bash
brings us the talented Cynthia Eden!
Ms. Eden has graciously offered the winner of today's daily prize an Arc of her upcoming release Angel Betrayed from Kensington Brava.
The Fallen, Book 2
June 26, 2012
Sammael–call him Sam–was an angel once. An Angel of Death. But the dispassionate, watch-from-above thing just wasn’t working for him when it meant watching evil torture innocent souls day in and day out. It might have cost him his wings, but these days he gets to apply the direct method on the bad guys. Problem is, what’s making his life difficult is a bad girl…
Seline O’Shaw needs protection, and with the hounds of hell on her tail, she’s not going to quibble too hard about where she gets it. Sam’s virtue is questionable, but he’s smoking hot, massively powerful, and owes her a favor. So what if she’s getting a little case of angel lust? There are some damn deadly sins after her hide…
Ali: Is there an author that makes you go all “fangirl?”
Cynthia: There are so many!!! But I think my main “fangirl” moments happen when I get close to Jayne Ann Krentz. I’ve loved her books for so long!
Ali: If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
Cynthia: Oh, tough!! But how about I pick the lovely Mrs. Krentz? Writing with her would be a dream. I love the diversity of stories that she writes—historicals, futuristics, contemporary—all while maintaining her distinct voice.
Ali: What are you looking forward to most about AADNola?
Cynthia: Everything! I LOVE New Orleans. Love it. I’m luck to live just 2 hours away from the Big Easy, so I visit frequently, and I’m just so taken by the city. So many places to visit. So many things to do. I always enjoying hitting Jackson Square and getting my fortune read or touring inside one of the cemeteries so I can get inspiration for more paranormal stories!
And at AAD, not only will I get to visit my favorite city, but I will get to hang out with romance readers! People who love the books that I love. How can it get any better than that?
Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Cynthia: That depends…who is attacking us? If it’s zombies, then I am totally taking my handy ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE…(yes, this is actually on my shelf right now).
Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else’s)
Cynthia: I’m a Dracula girl. Seductive, mysterious, the paranormal king—Dracula is definitely a fave for me. I always wanted Dracula to have his happy ending with Mina.
Ali: Are there any of your secondary characters you would like to give more life to?
Cynthia: So many! When I write a book, it’s hard to leave characters behind. There are so many secondary characters that I would like to develop more. But let me think (and narrow this down…)—okay, the ones I’ve been wanting to write for a long time are Cammie and Jordan. Cammie (a dragon shifter) and Jordan (a wolf shifter) first appeared in IMMORTAL DANGER. They were both young in that novel, but a few years passed, and they popped up again in NEVER CRY WOLF. These two are destined for each other, and I’d sure like to give them a happy ending.
Ali: If you friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
Cynthia: Hmmm…insane? No, quiet. No, wait—I think it would really depend on which friend you asked. ;)
