Now on to today's guest, Cat Adams, whose latest release SIREN SONG (#2 Blood Singer series) is in stores now. The first book in the Blood Singer series is BLOOD SONG. Cat is giving away a copy of her book, but to win that you'll have to send her an email instead of commenting below (though do still comment to win other prizes). She explain below...
Blood Song the first book in the Blood Singer series was inspired by a photograph I found in the dealer's room at a science fiction/fantasy convention. I saw the photo, and I just knew. It was one of those moments of pure inspiration that is a complete rush. I had to hurry and write down the basics before they slipped away. For weeks I was imagining the commercials from her world playing on the radio; picturing how an interview with the police would be handled. It made daily life in this reality pale by comparison.
When Blood Song finished, it was time for Siren Song. Cathy (my co-author) and I knew Celia well. Knew the world she worked and lived in. We simply followed the trail left in the first book to see where it would lead. It led, inevitably enough, to the consequences (moral and legal) of the decisions she'd made at the end of Blood Song, and then to the Siren island, to face a heritage she'd never even known about. We (and she) also found out the answer to her inevitable question "WHY ME?" and it was quite the surprise to us both. (We'd tell, but that would be cheating.)
We hope you enjoy Siren Song and the entire Blood Singer series. In it you'll get the chance to learn a bit about Siren culture -- something largely untapped in most urban fantasy mythos. There's action galore, and a hint of romance as well.
