*Mistress helps author Rosalie Lario through underground tunnel*
Mistress: I’m sorry to bring you in like this, dear Rosalie. We’ve had a heck of a night. You have no idea what’s been going on! Come sit by me, here. Don’t mind the dust. We’re cleaning up a little. Fernando, bring our dear friend here a drink and can you clean the dust off her jacket? Thank you, my dear. He’s a good little minion. Well, you do have to watch him during the full moon’s but most of the time, he’s manageable. Settled, dear? Good. First off, tell my guests a little about yourself and your work.
Rosalie: I am the paranormal romance author of the award-winning Demons of Infernum series and the Fallen Warriors series. I write about tough but good-hearted demons and sexy-as-sin angels.
Mistress: What inspired your novel Blood of the Demon?
Rosalie: I had been contemplating writing a book centered around demons for a while, when I had a dream about the lead character in BLOOD OF THE DEMON. I knew then that Keegan would be only half demon, and that demons would be a race of beings from another dimension rather than your typical beings from Hell. Everything else fell into place soon after that!
Mistress: Give us a taste of your influences.
Rosalie: My absolute favorite novels are To Tame a Highland Warrior by Karen Moning, After Midnight by Teresa Medeiros, and One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. Notice they’re all paranormal, lol.
Mistress: I did notice that….So this is probably a given but: All Hallow’s Eve or All Saint’s Day?
Rosalie: I absolutely love the general spookiness of All Hallow’s Eve!
Mistress: Favorite scary movie?
Rosalie: I don’t do gory scary. Freaks me out way too much, especially if it could actually happen in real life (i.e. slasher movies). So my favorite scary movie, which is more of a supernatural thriller, is The Devil’s Advocate.
Mistress: Ooh that was a creepy movie! Which leading man might you be fonder of Frankenstein, or Dracula?
Rosalie: There’s something innately sensual about Dracula (well…not the Bram Stoker version, lol), so I’ll have to go with the mesmerizing bloodsucker over the pieced together monster creation.
Mistress: Candy corn or chocolate?
Rosalie: OMG, is there even a contest? Chocolate!
Mistress: More candy corn for me, then. What are you going to dress up as for Halloween this year?
Rosalie: A black cat. Original, right?
Mistress: Actually, so far, among our guests, it is an original choice. You all are very creative and have really thought these answers out! If you could be in any classic horror novel, or story (such as Dracula, Frankenstein, Carmilla, Turn of the Screw, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, The Tell-Tale Heart? The Raven?), which would it be?
Rosalie: Hmm, it’s tough, but I’ll have to go with Dracula.
BLOOD OF THE DEMON, Book 1 of the Demons of Infernum series Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, interdimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment. Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she’s also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon’s Most Wanted List. And no one wants her more than Keegan’s father. Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he’ll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics—the far deadlier, uncontrollable half—when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he’ll never be able to resist.

Mistress: Where can our guests find you on that evil little realm called the Web?
Thanks for visiting us tonight, Rosalie. I hope you have a pleasant walk home. Yes, of course i’ll send Fernando with you; I’ll even make sure he takes the shotgun just in case…you never know where Dr. Franken-Helsing might pop up–though I am fairly sure he’s safely in his tomb at the moment…and for good, I hope!
