*Shooshes the crowd, ok the crowd of clamoring voices in her own head* Ahem Ahem, Thank you, Thank you M.L for being badgered into joining so kind as join us today!*devilish smile*

I seriously loved your latest book IRON NIGHT. Fort is a great character I can totally get behind. Do you have a whole slew of future book ideas in mind already for him?

Thanks so much! I definitely have a lot of plans for the future.

That of course leads me into – just how long of a haul do you think we readers are in for?

Right now my contract with Roc is just to the third Fortitude Scott book, but my fingers are crossed that they will be interested in more, because I have a *lot* of storylines in mind, and there are a lot of plotlines that aren’t going to be concluded when readers close the book on number three!

Care to give us a 140 pitch for the Generation V novels? Come on tempt the masses!

Slacker vampire and kick-ass kitsune. They fight crime.

I’m big on character profiles. Can you give us brief descriptions of the main players…say like so:

Tabitha: rapscallion, midnight raider, hoarder of pistachio gelato, A.D.D. crafter, voracious reader who thinks she’s always right. Beware the two left feet.

I know I’m not a character – but hey – I have dreams and hopes and uhh chocolate to bribe you with *wink* *wink*

Fort: Film major, misses Firefly, perpetually in fear that he’ll become like his family, hasn’t gotten laid in over six months.

Suzume: Kick ass kitsune, enjoys threatening people, grooming her lustrous fur, and playing practical jokes on Fort.

Chivalry: Really wishes that cravats would come back into style, since he saved all of his. And his white lawn suits. And all of his VHS tapes.

Matt: Hunting for the truth about his former police partner’s death, no matter where that truth leads him. Has started to suspect that Fort knows a lot more than he’s letting on. Trouble brewing.

*anyone else? say dear old mum perhaps?*

Madeline: If Maggie Smith’s Dowager Countess had fangs, that would be Madeline.

I’m trying to keep this short but you know I ooze love for the series. I felt like the creatures were fresh and I couldn’t get enough of your sense of humor. So how’s about you share with us your favorite *preferably funny dear* quote from each book?

GENERATION V: “Does a bodyguard really need to know what I’ve thrown out lately?”
She looked surprised. “Of course not.”

“Then why are you looking?”
“Because I’m nosy.”

IRON NIGHT: “Holy shit. You’re going to feed Titus to a troll?” I felt appalled.
“This is why we don’t name or pet the goats.” Chivalry said blandly.

On a more important note – if you lived in your own world what sort of creature would you be? *prances around like a unicorn*

Definitely a kitsune. Not only would I have a fabulous fluffy tail, but I’d finally get to find out what dogs find so amazing about sniffing everything. And when I got tired of sniffing poop and people’s crotches (I’m just saying, there has to be something to it for them to be so excited by it) I’d be able to become a person again and watch TV.

Lastly – because we’re all about confessions and I need more fodder to blackmail …err strike that…entertain our readers with. Give us a confession!! It need not be book related of course. Why just the other day I ate an entire container of pistachio gelato! *shushes April about that not really being a confession and more like common knowledge*

Hrm. Okay – last week I watched and loved the first episode of Downton Abbey, season 4, and the first episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Somewhere I think a marketing person’s head just exploded from the cognitive dissonance!

Thanks so much for joining us. And don’t mind that rustling in your bushes thats just us, err me?, trying to get a peak at the next book in the works.

Smithers, release the hounds.

Just kidding! I’m so glad you liked it, and I can’t wait to see what you think of TAINTED BLOOD in November!

(seriously, Smithers, release the hounds)

Iron Night

Underemployed by day. Undead by night.

Underachieving film theory graduate and vampire Fortitude Scott may be waiting tables at a snooty restaurant run by a tyrannical chef who hates him, but the other parts of his life finally seem to be stabilizing. He’s learning how to rule the Scott family territory, hanging out more with his shapeshifting friend Suzume Hollis, and has actually found a decent roommate for once.

Until he finds his roommate’s dead body.

The Scott family cover-up machine swings into gear, but Fort is the only person trying to figure out who (or what) actually killed his friend. His hunt for a murderer leads to a creature that scares even his sociopathic family, and puts them all in deadly peril.

Keeping secrets, killing monsters, and still having to make it to work on time? Sometimes being a vampire really sucks.
