AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT TODAY JANIERA ELDRIDGE


 


Weclome Janiera to my blog it a pleasure to have you talk about you fabulous book


 




 


1-   What inspired you to write soul sister and come up with the storyline?
 

Actually, nothing really, the story line of one sister being a human and one being a vampire just popped in my head one day. I really was dedicated to writing a book with characters of color (there just doesn’t seem like a lot of diversity in the vampire genre) and strong female characters. I was lucky that from the idea the book wrote itself.

 

 

 
 2-What music do you listen to when writing?

I’m one of the few authors that doesn’t listen to music while I write. I find it distracting, I prefer to have the TV on for background noise. If it is silent my thoughts will roam too much.

 

 

3-Who is your Favorite character?

She kicks ass for the people she loves and takes names later. She’s a girl with a lot of heart.

 

 

 

4-How many book will there be in the series?

Three. For now, I only planned on it being a series although some people would like to see spin off novellas.

 

 

5- If soul sister got turned in to a movie who would you pick to play the character?

The character of Ani? Tamera Mowry, I had the Mowry twins as Ani and Dana the entire time I was writing.

 

 
6-for people who are unfamliar with soul sister how will you introduce?

Soul Sisters is about twin sisters with a very strange sister. One is a vampire and one is a human. Their secret is exposed after Dana saves Ani from a very dangerous situation. After that the sisters find themselves requesting the help of  their friends to save their lives and take over the vampire monarchy. The man characters ethnic and it is a multi-ethnic story!

 

 

 

7-Favorite quote

8-What are you working on after soul sister

I’m almost finished editing book 2 of the Soul Sisters series Dark Expectations. Then I will be working on a horror short for an upcoming horror anthology released by Mystic Press.

 

 

9- What do you do on your free time

I spend most of my free time reading and blogging about reading. lol I always love a good movie, I’m a simple  women to please.

OH how I love American Horror Story and The Walking Dead, I love horror so these are my favorite shows.

Blood red, always beautiful. Want to look fierce? Wear read!

 

 

12- Favorite movie

Titanic is my favorite music, I’m not big on romance in my books or movies but, I love this film to death. I cried the whole time seeing it in 3-D.

My laptop, she’s like my child.
