Seressia, Happy New year. I'm thrilled to be catching up with you and bringing the readers a taste of the first book in your brand new trilogy. Shadow Chase has such a beautiful cover and since I know what a fantastic writer you are I know the story is going to be truly amazing. Can you please give us some insider info on the other two books in the series. Also, please tell us where we can buy the books.
Shadow Blade releases 01/26/10 and Shadow Chase releases 07/27/10. They're available in both print and electronic format, so I can give you the Amazon link. As for what the first two books are about, the blurbs explain them much better than I can!
Here's the blurb for Shadow Blade:
For Kira Solomon, normal was never an option.
Kira’s day job as an antiquities expert, but her true calling is as a Shadowchaser. Trained from youth to be one of the most lethal Chasers in existence, Kira serves the Gilead Commission dispatching the Fallen who sow discord and chaos. Of course, sometimes Gilead bureaucracy is as much a thorn in her side as anything the Fallen can muster against her. Right now, though, she’s got a bigger problem. Someone is turning the city of Atlanta upside-down in search of a four-millennia-old Egyptian dagger that just happens to have fallen into Kira’s hands.
Then there’s Khefar, the dagger’s true owner-a near-immortal 4000-year-old Nubian warrior who, Kira has to admit. looks pretty fine for his age. Joining forces is the only way to keep the weapon safe from the sinister Shadow force, but now Kira is in deep with someone who holds more secrets than she does, the one person who knows just how treacherous this fight is. Because every step closer to destroying the enemy is a step closer to losing herself to Shadow forever. . . .
Dyanne: Seressia, Do you have a blurb for Shadow Chase?
Seressia: LOL. Of course I do. Thanks for asking. Here's the blurb for Shadow Chase:
In a job like this, one mistake can cost you everything.
As a Shadowchaser, Kira Solomon has been trained to serve the Light, dispatch the Fallen, and prevent the spread of chaos. It’s a deadly job, and Kira knows the horror of spilling innocent blood. But now she has a new role, as the Hand of Ma’at, the Egyptian Goddess of Truth and Order, and an assignment that
might just redeem her.
A fellow Shadowchaser has gone missing, and so has a unique
artifact imbued with astonishing magic. Unless the Vessel of Nun is returned, it will cause destruction beyond anything the modern world has seen. Kira’s got a team at her back, including Khefar, a near-immortal Nubian warrior who’s already died for her once. But as complicated as her feelings for him are, they’re nothing compared to the difficulties of the task she faces.
And the only way to defeat the enemy is to trust in a power she can barely control, and put her life—and her soul—on the line.
Dyanne: How in the world did you ever come up with this concept?
Seressia: I wanted to create a world in which the Universal Law is about Balance, Light and Shadow, Order and Chaos, and that everything--humans, demons, gods and goddesses--are arrayed somewhere on the Universal Balance. This mythology also explains the many fantastical creatures humans have claimed to see throughout history, and that not all demons or non-human magical beings are bad.
As for what's next, I'm working on the third Shadowchasers book, Shadow Fall. I'm also working on some romance proposals, both contemporary and paranormal. Nothing's sold yet, but if there's any news to share, I'll be sure to announce it on my website, Facebook and Twitter pages!
Dyanne: Seressia, thank you so much for this follow up interview. Where can readers find you?
