Not Even Death Keeps a Good Demoness Down
There’s never an end to the crazy when you’re demon spawn. Not that Faith Bettincourt’s complaining. She’s been patching things up with her angelic on-again off-again boyfriend, Matt, and her best-friend-turned-sister-in-law is soon giving birth to the Anti-Christ Part Deux. Oh, and Faith is saving kids from Death in her pediatric unit one soul at a time. Life is good.
Until Faith accidentally runs over the Angel of Death and is forced to take his place. Now she’s taking lives instead of saving them. Which is kind of a problem when you’re a nurse. As if that weren’t bad enough, she is suddenly thrust into the worst scenario of them all--Matt’s ex Brenda is back, and she’s brought the Apocalypse with her.
Faith’s not about to give up the world...or her man. But when the chips are down, what’s a demoness supposed to do? Besides take matters into her own hands, of course.
Book 1 LUCK OF THE DEVIL and book 3 BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD are 99 cents on all ebook outlets.
This is my stop on the Before the Devil Knows Your Dead blog tour. I am hosting an interview with the author Patricia Eimer.
Tell us a something about yourself that is not in your author bio.
I have an unhealthy love for peanut butter cups. Seriously, for my first wedding anniversary my husband had a bakery make me a 9 inch cake pan version of a peanut butter cup and I sobbed like a baby when he gave it to me.
What made you decide to write in your current genre?
It wasn’t a conscious decision. I knew what I loved to read and I set out to write that. I think it’s the same for any writer because if you try to write to the market and the market isn’t something you love that disinterest comes through in your voice.
How long does it take you to write a book?
It depends on the book. The first book in this series took me less than a month to get the rough draft down, it flowed from my fingers. This one took me almost four because I didn’t want to write The End. This is the last book in the series and I knew the whole time I was letting these characters go afterwards and that slowed me down quite a bit.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I write in a padded cell. No really. My office is in our basement and it isn’t very well insulated so my husband put up padded horse blankets on all the walls to hold the heat in a bit more. So now my daughter jokes that when I get fidgety while we’re out in public that she’s going to take me home and lock me in my padded cell. It gets us quite a few looks but you’d be amazed how often people will suddenly decide to let you ahead of them in the checkout line.
Tell us about your current release/or new release?
This is the last story in my Speak of the Devil series and in it Faith Bettincourt, the Devil’s youngest daughter, has to decide whether she’s willing to commit to the nephilim next door or if she’s going to walk away even though she loves him. But just as Faith comes to a decision to open herself up for a second chance at lasting love tragedy strikes, forcing them apart again. Now Faith and Matt have to save Pittsburgh from the Apocalypse and somehow find a way back to each other so that they can get their Happily Ever After.
Any advice for those trying to get published?
Write. Write. Write. Then write some more. No one can publish you unless you have something to offer them. It all starts with you. Oh, and seriously consider joining your local RWA chapter. I’m a part of Maryland Romance Writers Association and I can honestly say that every time I come away from a meeting or a crit group with these talented ladies I feel inspired all over again. It’s like group therapy for authors—and they feed you chocolate.
Are you currently working on a new project? If so can you tell us a little about it.
I am working on a new project. I am currently working on a new series for the Entangled Covet line about a group of not-so-super superheroines in St. Louis. The first book follows a kindergarten teacher whose ex-husband turned her into a superhero and now she’s stuck being roommates with the sexy cop she’s been crushing on—who hates supeheroes. Can she keep her secret and get Happily Ever After or will saving the city get in the way? And if she hides who she really is will she ever really find happiness?
Patricia Eimer is a small-town girl fated to be a storyteller. After a stint of “thinking practically,” she earned degrees in Business and Economics, but her passion has always been a good book. She lives in Pittsburgh with her two kids and a husband who learned the art of frozen pizza to give her more time to write. When she’s not writing she can be found fencing or arguing with her dogs about plot points. Most days the beagle wins, but the dalmatian is a close second. She’s a distant third.
