You never know how much you'll miss something until it's gone for good.
We brought our people. We brought our history. We brought the magic which keeps us whole and sane.
Except it isn't working. People are sick. Dying. Or worse--unable to control the beast inside them.
The survival of Selena rests on the shoulders of a select few. If there was ever a time for miracles, it's now.
L.M. Pruitt has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. A native of Florida with a love of New Orleans, she has the uncanny ability to find humor in most things and would probably kill a plastic plant. She knows this because she's killed bamboo. Twice. She is the author of the Winged series, the Plaisir Coupable series, Jude Magdalyn series, the Moon Rising series, and Taken: A Frankie Post Novel.
1. Where do you get your ideas?
The Moon Rising series started as a writing exercise, something to help with the bout of writer’s block I was struggling with while in the middle of another book. It ended up being so much more than that and I’m still thrilled and shocked it’s grown in to the series it has.
2. Do you have a dream cast for your book?
I don’t, actually. I’ve never really given much thought to seeing Moon Rising as a movie or a television series. If it were to become one or the other, I’d lean toward a television series, preferably on HBO or FX—a station which isn’t overly concerned about graphic content.
3. How do you handle writer’s block?
Different ways. Some times I just veg out, catch up on reading or television watching. Other times I’ll start work on a new project in an effort to get the creativity working. And some times you simply have to struggle through it.
4. What inspired you to write this book?
As I said before, it was a writing exercise to help clear my mind and get me back on track. It wound up being so much bigger and more complex and I had to see it through to the end and I’m so glad I did.
5.What’s the hardest part of being an author?
I think it would have to be the solitude. Don’t get me wrong, I’m fairly good with being alone but every now and then you want to have someone to talk to about your day and your work. I think that’s why it’s so important to reach out and create your own support network of writers to keep you focused and sharp and recharged.
