Author Interview – Rebekah R. Ganiere

iiHere is my author interview with Rebekah R. Ganiere. We will be highlighting her book series The Society Trilogy. Make sure to check out the books in the trilogy Reign of the Vampires, Rise of the Fae and Vengeance of the Demons.

What was your overall inspiration to write in the very beginning of your career?
I heard someone say that there weren’t a lot of good zombie romances out there and I thought that was a gross idea. But it got stuck in my head and I couldn’t get it out. Before I knew it I had an idea for a girl who entered an unsanctioned drug trial in an effort to pay some bills and woke up with no memory of who she was or how she got there to discover she’d become a Deader – A zombie. And from there the ideas just flowed out of me.

How many vampire books do you currently have out with titles please?  
I have three in my Society SeriesReign of the Vampires, Rise of the Fae, Vengeance of the Demons. I also have vampires in my Fairelle Fairytale retelling series. Red the Were Hunter, Snow the Vampire Slayer, Jamen’s Yuletide Bride, Zelle and the Tower and Cinder the Fae. The next book in my Otherworlder Series will have a Vampire in it. Haunting Halloween will release next Halloween.

Do you have a favorite vampire book or movie/tv show?
Right now The Originals is my favorite. Elijah is just yummy! And Black Dagger Brotherhood as well as Midnight Breed are my favorite Vampire Books.

If vampires were to really exist and you had the option to become immortal would you do so yes or no and why? Oh man!  That’s tough. I think it would depend on the circumstances. If I was poor and had to work for a living every day, probably not. If I was rich as a Vampire then, I might.

What do you find to be the most challenging thing about being an author?
Budgeting my time. I’m a mom of 4 kids I homeschool. My son and daughter are actors in Hollywood. My oldest daughter is a competitive dancer and my second oldest daughter is a fencer. We are also cosplayers and go to about 5 or 6 cons a year that I speak at. And I make all the costumes myself. So trying to do all of that stuff plus being a writer is very difficult.

If you could co-write a brand new vampire book with anyone of you’re choosing who would it be and why?
Lara Adrian. She is a beautiful, sweet woman and she is an amazing writer!

Are you currently working on any new projects that you would like to share with us?
I am working on 2 shifter series. Shifter Rising and Wolf River. I am also going to be releasing a new installment of Fairelle this year – Belle and the Beast. As well as a new Otherworlder book – Haunting Halloween. I have 70 other plus books that are waiting to be written so, I’m always working on something.

What is one of the biggest misconceptions that you think people have about authors in general?
That writing is easy and makes tons of money immediately. Some writers have talent, some work hard to gain it. And even for those with natural born writing talent, writing does not always come easy. It takes hard work and effort. Even when it’s a project you love.

If money was no object and you could travel to any place in the world for your dream vacation where would you go and what would you do?
I would go to Europe. I’ve always wanted to go there. Ireland and England and Italy especially. Scotland as well. I’d stay in castles, enjoy the food and the land. I’d go see landmarks and just become inspired.

Do you prefer online events or live events and what do you think the pros and cons of each are?
Online are easier for writers like me that are a bit on the shy side. But I think you can connect so much better with people in person. I actually prefer in person events even though I get major anxiety doing them.
