Very exciting stuff going on over at All The World's Our Page today! Deanna Raybourn, author of the Lady Julia Grey novels, has graciously allowed us to interview her. Even better, she's taking follow up and random questions. EVEN better...we're giving away some of her books!
GO THEE HERE!!
I was recently introduced to her books by Kristen Callihan and Rachel Walsh -- both fans for quite some time now. I DEVOURED the first in the Julia series -- SILENT IN THE GRAVE. It was soooooooooooooo good. You should definitely check out her books (SILENT IN THE GRAVE, SILENT IN THE SANCTUARY, and SILENT ON THE MOOR) -- both at our contest and your local churches. :) I know I will be.
AND be sure to check out her current release, THE DEAD TRAVEL FAST.
A husband, a family, a comfortable life: Theodora Lestrange lives in terror of it all.
With a modest inheritance and the three gowns that comprise her entire wardrobe, Theodora leaves Edinburgh—and a disappointed suitor—far behind. She is bound for Rumania, where tales of vampires are still whispered, to visit an old friend and write the book that will bring her true independence.
She arrives at a magnificent, decaying castle in the Carpathians, replete with eccentric inhabitants: the ailing dowager; the troubled steward; her own fearful friend, Cosmina. But all are outstripped in dark glamour by the castle's master, Count Andrei Dragulescu.
Bewildering and bewitching in equal measure, the brooding nobleman ignites Theodora's imagination and awakens passions in her that she can neither deny nor conceal. His allure is superlative, his dominion over the superstitious town, absolute—Theodora may simply be one more person under his sway.
Before her sojourn is ended—or her novel completed—Theodora will have encountered things as strange and terrible as they are seductive. For obsession can prove fatal…and she is in danger of falling prey to more than desire.
Ohhh...sounds good to me! LOL. Go forth and buy, people. Her interview was such a blast, and believe you me, I was taking notes. :)
