On The 5th Day of Blogmas We Have Larissa Ione

Dec 13, 2009

On The 5th Day of Blogmas We Have one of my FAVVVVVV Authors! Larrisa Ione !! * clap,clap, squueee, yay, woo hoo *fan moment!!!  Thank you some much Larissa For being here today! Larissa Is the Author of The Demonica Series. Which if you have not read yet, O...M...G... You must go pick it up ! Yes it is that awesome !!!!
Ok now onto the Interview and Giveaway. Larissa Has Offered a Signed copy of Pleasure Unbound to One Luck Winner. Larissa is also Letting us have fan moments by stopping by through out the day, and chatting and answering questions!!! So go ahead, read the Interview with Larissa and get to chatting and asking questions !!!

JJBC~Do you read any reviews on your books?
LI~ I usually only read them if someone points me to them. I definitely don’t seek them out. Cuz they can be skeeery…. (Am wuss)

JJBC~Do you read your own books after they make it to final print?
LI~No way! *g* I’m terrified I’ll find a mistake! I do keep an ARC (Advance Reader Copy) to look through for reference if I need to, because the ARCs are filled with errors – so if I find errors, I can choose to believe that they were corrected before making it to final print! ├čThings Writers Do For Mental Health

JJBC~What do you like to Read? Your Favorite Genre?
LI~Love, love, love to read!!!! Favorite genre? Oooh, that’s tough, because I read pretty much everything. But I’d say my favorites are fantasy, historical fiction, and romance.

JJBC~Do you have a favorite book /series?
LI~My favorite all-time series is Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time. Love it! Favorite book? I have too many favorites to list! LOL

JJBC~Did you always want to be a writer?
LI~Yep. I learned to read when I was really young, and for as long as I can remember, I chose to read over doing pretty much everything else. I was in love with the written word, so I started writing my own stories.

JJBC~How old were you when you began to write?
LI~I started writing little kid stories when I was around 7. Gradually, the stories got longer, until I wrote my first full-length novel at the age of 13.

JJBC~Is writing your full time job?
LI~Thankfully, yes. I’m very, very lucky that my husband has a job that allows me to stay home and just write. For years I worked shiftwork at weather stations all over the country, but the meteorology field is very specialized, so with our frequent moves (hubby is in the Coast Guard) it was often hard to find a job. I concentrated on writing about 6 years ago when we moved to a place where the nearest weather station was 3 hours away and I couldn’t work. Now I’m published, and it’s wonderful, because my job now moves with my husband.

JJBC~Do you set a daily writing goal?
LI~I try to write a thousand words a day. Sometimes I get more, but mostly I get less!

JJBC~When and where do you like to write?
LI~ I write on the couch in the living room, but that’s because our basement isn’t finished yet. Once it is, I’ll have an office, and I plan to work there.

JJBC~Are there any processes you use when writing?Do you keep journals, sticky notes, chicken scratch on the back of receipts?
LI~I’m the most unorganized person on the planet. My notes are definitely all over the place, and there is no rhyme or reason to my method.

JJBC~Do you prefer to write on a computer, typewriter, or paper and pen?
LI~Computer – about 99% of the time.

JJBC~What is the hardest / easiest part of writing for you?
LI~Easiest? Heh. Okay, the easiest part of writing is probably coming up with character names. I love doing that! Hardest? Plotting. I hate plotting. Someone should have told me that plotting sucks…you know, long before I started writing!

JJBC~What’s the best thing about being an author?
LI~Seeing my name on a book in a bookstore. It’s been a dream of mine since I was very young, and I still freak out with excitement every time I walk into a bookstore and see my books.

JJBC~Who’s your favorite hero/heroine?
LI~Ooh, tough one. Since I write under two names, I’ll pick from both – you know, just to be fair! *g* Okay, for my Sydney Croft books (written with Stephanie Tyler,) I’d have to say that my favorite heroine is Kira from Unleashing The Storm. She’s an animal psychic and just this great mix of strong and sweet. My favorite hero is from the same book – Ender, AKA Tom Knight. He’s such a bastard! But he falls hard for Kira, and he’s super protective, funny, and tough as nails.

As for my own books, I’d say that Wraith from Passion Unleashed is my favorite, though it really is a close call with Eidolon. But Wraith is just so easy to write, such a smartass, so he wins by a hair. Favorite heroine? She’s one you haven’t met yet. Her name is Sin, and she’s basically a female Wraith. :)
JJBC~ I have to agree with you, Wraith is soooooo my fav! Nummmm

JJBC~What are you reading at the moment?
LI~ Deadly Desire, by Keri Arthur. Love Riley Jensen!

JJBC~Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
LI~Don’t give up! I nearly gave up after Hurricane Katrina, but thankfully I had awesome friends who forced me back up on that horse. Because of them, I’m published. If not for them…well, just keep writing, and don’t give up!

JJBC~Is there anything else you would like to share with your followers today?
LI~ Just a huge, huge thank you. Writing my Demonica series has been a dream come true, and without the support of my readers, I wouldn’t be where I am. You all rock!!!

 Ecstasy Unveiled

JJBC~Can you tell you tell us a little bit about the book?
LI~I’ll cheat and post the back cover blurb:

A Demon Enslaved…

Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master’s assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister’s life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he’ll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.

An Angel Tempted…

Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She’s determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary—even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender.

Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again—hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction.

JJBC~How did you come up with the idea for this book/series? From a dream, from watching tv, while reading another book?
LI~ Well, for this book, it really just fell into place as the series progressed. The series itself came from an episode of Angel, where the hero, Angel – a vampire – was injured. One of the characters, Oz, said he needed to go to the hospital, but, well…vampire. So I started thinking…hmm…there really needs to be a hospital for those underworld creatures who need help. And Underworld General, with its demon, vampire, and werewolf doctors and nurses, was born!

JJBC~Did you have to do any type of research before writing this book?
LI~Not really. I’ve always been a huge fan of the paranormal, so I had a good base. I’ve studied religion and the paranormal on my own for years. And as far as the medical aspect….that was another area of interest. I always wanted to be a doctor, but I do have this aversion to blood and needles. However, I made myself get over that, and I got certified as an EMT so I could write those medical heroes and heroines I love so much.

JJBC~Who’s your favorite character and why?
LI~ Hmm…well, for this particular book, I really love Lore. I do tend to be hero-centric, so I almost always love the heroes more than the heroines. That doesn’t mean that I give those poor females the shaft – I do love them. But I find it much easier, and much more fun to write the males. Usually. As I mentioned above, I adore Sin, who is introduced in this book.

JJBC~Are any of your characters based on people in your life?
LI~Not at all. Though my husband likes to think that I based Wraith on him. *rolls eyes*

JJBC~Did the overall book turn out like your original idea of the story?
LI~Er…no. I actually rewrote the entire book after the first draft. And when I say rewrite, I mean, I only kept about 5% of the original. It just never came together for me, so I had to rewrite it, and I’m much happier with the second version.

JJBC~Can you tell us a little bit about the characters?
LI~Well, Lore is half demon and half human. His demon half (he’s a rare breed of incubi) has caused him a lifetime of misery, and his loyalty to his sister (Sin, who I’ve mentioned already) got him into trouble a few decades ago, and now he’s an assassin as a result. And his most recent job (his last job, if things go well) puts him in direct conflict with his newfound brothers – and with an angel whose job is to protect the person Lore is supposed to kill.

The angel, Idess, needs to make sure Lore doesn’t complete his assignment. See, she’s not quite an angel yet – she needs to earn her wings. And if he fails, well, bad news. Deep down, she’s sweet, but she’s got a tough exterior, and a past that she needs to make up for.

JJBC~Can you tell us a little bit about when and where the story takes place?
LI~The “when” is present day, just weeks after Passion Unleashed in the Demonica timeline. Where is a mix of places – Underworld General Hospital, North Carolina, South America, New York, and, well, hell.

JJBC~Do you have any idea how many book are going to be in this series?
LI~ Right now it’s looking like five total (Ecstasy Unveiled is book 4) with a spinoff series to come in 2011.

JJBC~Do you have a favorite scene?
LI~The Smurfette scene. (You’ll know it when you get to it!)

JJBC~Was there any part of this book that was harder for you to write than the others?
LI~Can I just say, “All of it?” No? Okay, let’s see…there’s a scene where Shade is a real jerk to Eidolon (they’re brothers) in the hospital. See, these brothers, Eidolon, Shade, and Wraith, fight a lot. But they are also VERY close. And when Lore shows up (a half-brother) he throws them all out of whack. Toss in another complication in the form of a long-lost enemy, and their relationship is turned on its head.

Well, in this one scene, Eidolon and Shade have a falling out that was really hard to write, was very emotional for me because these brothers love each other so much. So for them to break like they did, well, it was just awfully emotional for me to write. Very hard.

My Bonus Question:

JJBC~If you could be trapped in any series/book which would it be and why?
LI~Well, if we’re talking romance…I think I’d have to go with Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series. Those hunky Dark Hunters? Um…yeah. Gimme!

Thank you so much for having me! It was awesome!

JJBC~ Thank you sooooo much Larissa  For the Opportunity to get to know you better!
Here is a little More about Larissa:
Demonica Series

*Note: In Vampire Romance 2, This story takes place in the Demonica world, but is independent from the series and contains new characters. I place it in the timeline somewhere after book 3 only because of a vague mention of happenings from the first 3 books.

Hi Larissa! *waves*

Every time I read a Demonica book I think it's my favorite until I read the next one so right now Passion Unleashed is my favorite. Wraith really won me over in his book but I love E and Spade too. Is it me or does poor Spade get the least amount of love? I wouldn't mind going to his cave :-)

jacabur1 December 13, 2009 at 10:32 AM  

First off have to say am so excited to read this interview with you JoJo and Larissa and find out about the spin-off in 2011. I was afraid like all the other fans you have captivated Larissa with the Underworld General World in your Demonica Series that after book 5 when you end the series we would never get to see the "guys" in print again. If you do a spin-off that means they make "guest appearances" sometimes we hope....
I also have to say that it is so cool that have found another fan of Robert Jordan's Wheel Of Time series, gotta love that Rand Al Thor and his gang of Dragon Reborn followers. The Ais Sedai maybe are a good role model for some of the heroic women characters in books today....

My Favorite Heroine is Anita Blake character created by Laurell K Hamilton, she is like me petite and a banty rooster only with some serious power and skills....

My Favorite Demonica Book right now is the last one with Wraith and Serena, "Passion Unleashed". I am thinking though when the one comes out that Larissa mentioned that she will write about Lore's sister Sin that one will be my most favorite... I cannot wait...

Hi everyone! You guys are so awesome!!!!

Larissa...looks like there will be five books in the Demonica series, BUT it's always possible that there will be more, and there's definitely going to be a spinoff where there will be appearances from Demonica characters. I'm not up on all the details yet, but I'll make sure to post more when I know more! :)

Thanks, JoJo, for doing this, and thank you to everyone who has posted and said nice things about the books!

Who’s your favorite hero/heroine?
Tough one...Top 5 Heroes, it's as narrow as I can get - in no particular order: Acheron, Sebastian Wroth, Rydstrom Woede, Creed McCabe and Eidolon...let's add Zsadist and Raphael (although he really pisses me off sometimes...May as well throw in all of Nalini Singhs heroes). Not so narrow, I guess.

Heroines? They're tougher, I'm all about the hero, too. Top 5 - Kaderin the Cold, Becca Gibbs (He Loves Me, He Loves Me Hot), Mariketa the Awaited, Xhex (although her story isn't out yet - I love every scene she's in - totally kickass...don't let me down, Ward) and Annika Svenson, of course.

What is your favorite Demonica Book right now? Pleasure Unboound, love, love, love Eidolon.

I got hooked by readidng the Demonica series on my kindle. That led to the ARCO books and now I am hooked. Can't wait for the new ones to come out.

Misty December 13, 2009 at 7:55 PM  

Unfortunate for me I haven't read any of these books yet. I have read a few reviews and excerpts though and am very interested in reading them. Atleast from this series anyway, they sound pretty good.
They are next on my list after the BDB series.
