Today, we’ve Lana Campbell answering my five little questions about herself and her paranormal romance, FOREVER AND A NIGHT.
There’s always one part of a novel that asks more of us than the rest, which part of your novel was the hardest for you to write?
Hardest part of my novel was chopping it down from 600 pages to 395. I’m a wordy girl and I had to learn to cut parts I loved in order to make the novel flow more effectively.
Tell us about the cover… Who designed it? What was the process like? Any cute little tidbits that tie just right?
Tate Publishing designed the cover, but we worked together in order for the two protagonists to come across as I described them in the book. The male protagonist is perfectly what I imagined. They did a stellar job. I love the cover. He’s so hot. Right?
Sometimes, words don’t come out the way we mean, what’s the weirdest typo you’ve ever made?
It starts with an f and that’s all I’ll say on that one.
We’ve all fantasised about this at some point, so who do you imagine playing the lead characters in a movie of your book?
That’s a hard one. I’d have to say, should I have my say I’d want to interview new actors because I’d be looking for people with passion and drive to bring my characters to life on screen.
They’d have to love the book, the script.
Lastly, if you could set foot anywhere in the world at any era, where and when would you most like to visit?
The Victorian era, New Orleans.
Great answers. Your cover guy is hot, although I can’t imagine what your typo could’ve been. *coughcough* Goodness what that must’ve done to the sentence!
Nathan Davenport is being stalked by Isabella Ravini, the feral vampire who stole his human life over a hundred and sixty years ago. She made him her fledging, a slave for her dark, evil purposes—hunting humans. After a few years she released him, and Nathan reluctantly learned to accept the cursed life she’d foisted upon him. Over time he amassed a great fortune, which today has made him famous worldwide. Isabella decides she wants to be a part of this world of fame and fortune Nathan created for himself. She’s determined to marry him, and love has nothing to do with it. His money is her primary target, and the fame and prestige attached to being the wife of one of the richest men in the world wouldn’t be so bad either. In an effort to evade her until he can figure out how to stop her, he hides at a safe house he owns in New Orleans. One Saturday evening in NOLA, he decides to have dinner in the city. He chooses a quiet little Italian bistro, never imagining this night will change his life forever. The human woman who delivers his order isn’t a server, but the restaurant’s sous chef, a beautiful ethnic woman possessing the most delicious blood scent he’s ever encountered. The moment Mia Peebles arrives at his table with his plate, tasting her becomes an obsession. Mia wants nothing to do with him because of Nathan’s reputation as a playboy. So Nathan enchants her, feeds from her, but his lusts for her blood and body play havoc with his thinking. Nathan finds a way to bring her into his life as his personal chef and quickly falls in love with her. The trouble is Mia has no idea he’s a vampire because during the enchanting episodes, Nathan blocked her memories of those sensual encounters. How will Nathan tell her the truth without losing her and keep Isabella from finding him? Or worst yet, will Isabella discover how much Mia has come to mean to him?
