HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY TO CLAUDIA & BALTHAZAR!!
Today, I'm happy to welcome Dark Days author Claudia Gray! And to help her celebrate the release day for her new book, BALTHAZAR! Balthazar is a companion novel to her Evernight Series.
As a blogger for the Dark Days tour, today I'm sharing with you the "Biggest" interview
I had a chance to do with Claudia.
Biggest candy craving? If it's chocolate, I want it.
Biggest author moment? Not sure what this means! But I guess nothing quite tops finding out you've sold your first book. I was so shocked I had to sit down on the floor.
Biggest feat you’d like to accomplish? Eventually to have set foot on all seven continents.
Biggest breakthrough when writing a book? Probably it came when I was writing the character of Mateo in the very, very early stages of SPELLCASTER (coming in early 2013); it took his character longer to take shape in my mind, but when he did, he turned out to have an amazing back story. The second-biggest would be while I was writing BALTHAZAR; I'd always found Charity a very difficult character to write in the EVERNIGHT series ... which was all from Bianca's POV. As soon as I was writing about her in a book about Balthazar, though, she suddenly became very easy to write -- I think because he knew her better.
Biggest childhood memory? Probably any happy memory of my pug, Isaac.
Biggest fictional crush? Right now? Professor X! At least as played by James McAvoy. Or as played by Patrick Stewart. Or in comics. Yeah, Professor X.
Biggest wish for one of your characters? I hope Alec and Tess outwitted the Brotherhood for once and for all after FATEFUL was over. I feel pretty sure they did.
Biggest, most scariest moment? There was a airplane trip from Philadelphia to NYC in a teeny prop plane during a storm that was 45 minutes or pure terror. Lightning, thunder, high winds, turbulence, several sharp dives through the air and all 30 people on board taking turns vomiting or screaming. SO FUN.
Biggest moment of 2011? Probably buying my first house!
Biggest dream trip? That would have to be whatever crazy voyage will finally take me to Antarctica someday.
Biggest challenge ahead of you? I have this crazy idea that I'm going to be able to do my US tour, my Australian tour and the subsequent trip all in two carry-on suitcases. So, packing.
Biggest wish for your fans/readers? That they always love reading as much as they do right now.
It was such a FUN interview Claudia! I'm thrilled to have had another chance to work with you and host you here on my blog. You are more than welcome back anytime.
Synopsis: Haunted by memories from his first days as a vampire, Balthazar has spent hundreds of years alone—without allies, without love. When he emerges from his isolation to help Skye Tierney, a human girl who once attended Evernight Academy, Balthazar has no idea how dangerous it will be. Skye’s psychic powers have caught the attention of Redgrave, the cruel master vampire responsible for murdering Balthazar and his family four centuries ago. Having learned of Skye’s powers and the remarkable effect her blood has on vampires, he plans to use her for his own evil purposes. As they stand together to fight the evil vampire, Balthazar realizes his lonely world could finally be changed by Skye...just as Redgrave realizes that he can destroy Balthazar once and for all by taking her for his own.
In a story filled with forbidden love and dark suspense, one of the most beloved characters in Claudia Gray’s New York Times bestselling Evernight series will captivate readers with his battle to overcome his past and follow his heart.
