D.B. Reynolds' VINCENT Blog Tour plus Guest Post and Giveaway!!

Guest Post 

D. B. Reynolds 

I was looking for fresh topics for my blog post, and decided to put it out there for my readers (the best readers in the world!) They came up with some great subjects, but rather than pick one, I’m going to answer the several questions that resulted. So, here goes …

Q. What makes best friends so important in a story line?

A. Mostly best friends serve to humanize the character, so she doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Interaction with best friends is a vehicle for insight into a character, into the emotional and social history that made her who she is.

Q. Looking at the world we live in now, do you think it would be better off if vampires truly did exist?

A. I don’t know if the world would be better off, but it would certainly be more interesting. It would depend on the vampires, of course, but I’d also worry that humans would hunt them down, since that’s what we do. Anything we don’t understand … kill it!

Q. Do you ever feel like maybe the world is a script being played out, and we are all nothing more characters playing our parts?

A. Hmmm. No. I think it’s all pretty much random.

Q. I have been re-reading the series in prep for Vincent. I am on Lucas right now. One of the things he mentioned is that the boundaries for North America were established long ago. How did they become established?

A. The territorial boundaries are the result of powerful vampires, like Raphael, claiming as much territory as they could hold through a combination of raw power and vampire supporters/fighters. Theoretically, the boundaries could change, assuming a ruling vampire lord could seize enough of his neighbor’s territory to shift the boundaries, the way Klemens tried to do with Lucas.

Q. What about more on the differences between the North American vampires and the European vampires. Are there vampires in other countries such as Asia?

A. Yes, there are vampires all over the world. In Sophia, for example, there was a some discussion of the vampires in South America, and there are undoubtedly vampires throughout Asia. The older countries, that is countries that have had large human populations for a longer time, have more and generally older vampires. That’s why the European vamps want to take over North America, because they’ve run out of new territory and have too many vamps, while North America has its population spread over large swaths of territory.

Q. What makes one vampire have special powers while another is so much weaker?

A. No one really understands how this works. It’s been discussed more than once in the books, and not even Raphael understands it.

(Vampires in America Book #8) by D.B. Reynolds
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: ImaJinn Books
Release Date: November 1, 2014

Sinaloa, Mexico . . . haunting deserts, hot nights, and vampires, who’ve been there for hundreds of years, watching from the shadows, playing their games, manipulating humans, and surviving at any cost.
Vincent Kuxim, powerful and charismatic, was made vampire by an ambitious leader looking for soldiers to pave his way to the rule of all Mexico. But more than a century later, Vincent’s Sire is looking over his shoulder as Vincent closes in for the kill, ready to claim the title Lord of Mexico for himself.

Lana Arnold is a bounty hunter, smart, beautiful, and determined to chart her own future. So when the most powerful vampire lord in all of North America enlists her help in tracking down a very old and elusive bloodsucker, Lana sees nothing but opportunity. There’s only one catch. The client wants her to take Vincent—a vampire she neither knows nor trusts—along on her hunt. Then again, maybe it’s herself she doesn’t trust, because Vincent Kuxim is sex walking in a pair of tight black jeans.

Thrown together by circumstance, Vincent and Lana soon find themselves battling an evil they didn’t know existed in a fight that makes Vincent all the more determined to destroy his Sire, seize Mexico for himself . . . and keep Lana by his side forever.

  1. Great interview! Sounds like an awesome read I can't wait to check out . Thanks for sharing!

  2. Excellent question and answer on why the Euro vamps want North America, DB. It's actually historically accurate, as you know, and it's nice to see that played out in your world. BTW, blog readers, you cannot go wrong with the Vampires in America series. It just keeps getting better. As a long time vamp nut, DBR came along and wrote my perfect vampires. Hotness and all. Thanks, DB! Oh, and if you ask them if they sparkle, they'll rip your throat out. LOL

  3. Thanks for the author interview!

  4. It's always insightful when Ms Reynolds shares her views on the Vampire nation and their goals. I'm definitely hooked on this series and can't wait for the ultimate conflict!!!

  5. Vampires being Vampires. One of the best Vampire series that I have read. I love this series and am looking forward to the rest of this Epic story.

  6. Thank you for sharing with us !!
