S: I have here Laurent Kinsdale, the sexy vampire from Brita Addams' book, Love Immortal, which just released on December 4.
Now Laurent, I know you’re a man of many likes and dislikes, but what would you say is the best and worst thing about being a vampire?
L: Well, the best thing about being a vampire is I have an eternity to spend with my dear one, Sebastian. The worst thing, well, I suppose it would have to be the need to stay secluded as we do, lest our neighbours discover our secret. You know, our love for each other isn't understood by everyone, sad as that is.
S: Oh yes, the world can be quite an intolerant place.
Speaking of your dear one, Sebastian. When you met him for the first time, what is it about him that drew you in?
L: I am glad you asked. I first saw my Sebastian in an alley, communing with another gentleman. I felt he was worthy of so much better, that, of course, being myself. You've seen Sebastian, irresistible as he is. I couldn't leave the man to the mercy of other elements, now could I?
He is beautiful, is he not? His smile, his accommodating ways. He needs me, precious man.
S: Yes, and I can tell this much in the way of Ms. Addams’ expression of that need, but I’ve been wondering, why Brita? What made you choose her to tell your story?
L: Dear girl, have you read her work? Darling, her tales of the Sapphire Club are much as I remember them to be. I did tell you that I have frequented the glorious environs of the Club, as we members call it. Brita can tell an erotic tale better than most and I felt she would do my story justice.
S: She is quite steamy, isn’t she? From what she’s told me, there was absolutely no embellishment on any of the goings-on between you and your beloved, nor of the tales of the Club, as you call it.
Are you excited or indifferent about your story continuing?
L: Our story is quite an interesting one, wouldn't you agree?
I’m only excited over one thing, really, and indifferent about most other things. I do feel the story should be written, so I will put up with Brita's incessant questions. Is it something you imagined would continue? Dear one, my life will continue for centuries. Yes, I imagined it would continue.
S: Thank you, Laurent, for joining me, but I do have one question for Ms. Addams herself. Brita, what advice would you give to aspiring authors?
B: Well, Saige, I am happy you asked. Being a writer yourself, no longer aspiring. Congrats! You know how difficult it is to get an idea from your mind onto virtual paper.
My advice is to keep writing, even if it's bad. Write, write, write. We have delete buttons on our keyboards for a reason. The idea isn't to ALWAYS write something inspired, but rather, to simply write. Write until it feels right, then start again.
Read, read, read. Read in the genre you wish to write. See how it's done, not to imitate other authors, but to see what the genre is all about. Storytelling is a unique pursuit, as unique as each author. Find your voice, then sing loud!
S: That is wonderful advice! And thank you for the congratulations. I’ve taken the advice given to me by the Saige’s Stage authors to further my writing and it worked, so I hope others learn from that and take your advice as well.
Well, Laurent, Brita. This is all the time we have here today. I hope to see you both back, as well as Sebastian, when your next book releases. Thanks for stopping by!
