Tour Stop and QnA : FAITH HUNTER!!!




Blurb:
Shapeshifting skinwalker Jane Yellowrock is the best in the business when it comes to slaying vampires. But her latest fanged foe may be above her pay grade…

For centuries, the extremely powerful and ruthless vampire witches of the European Council have wandered the Earth, controlling governments, fostering war, creating political conflict, and often leaving absolute destruction in their wake. One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it’s definitely personal.

Jane is tasked with tracking him down. With the help of a tech wiz and an ex-Army ranger, her partners in Yellowrock Securities, she’ll have to put everything on the line, and hope it’s enough. Things are about to get real hard in the Big Easy.

    Thanks to Faith Hunter for answering my questions!!

    1. Thinking about when you started writing the Jane Yellowrock series, was it harder to start the series or harder to finish the series?
    The series has several more books to go. But I admit that ending it is going to be hard. I have a lot of plot points in the air, juggling them. Getting them all into the proper order so I can tie them all together will be difficult. And painful. And I fear bloody… 
    2. I've always been curious about the cover model. Is she strictly a model or someone you know?
    There are two models, one on the books published by Penguin/ROC, and one on the covers I do, and who also appears at DragonCon with me. Amy CorreaBell (https://www.facebook.com/AmyCorreaBell) is the ROC model and my model choses to be Anonymous. :)
    3. You are notorious for having a diversified cast which is something I value and look for elsewhere but can't find. Did it come naturally you? It feels like it did.
    I actually planned for Jane Yellowrock to travel and solve paranormal crimes all over the South, which would have meant new and limited characters with every book. Then she met Leo and … stuff happened and Jane stayed in New Orleans. I never planned it at all. I am usually a control freak with my characters, but Jane has had a mind of her own from the get-go. And Beast? Don’t get me started. She is totally uncontrolled. A mind of her own and in charge of her own destiny. And maybe Jane’s destiny too.
    4. This isn't a question, but I just want to express gratitude. This series has been so completely amazing that I can't even begin guess how it will end or how you are setting up your new series for greatness. Thanks so much.
    Thank you for that! SoulWood is going to be a trilogy, and I love the characters and the plot and everything about it!
