Multi Author, Multi Day, Multi Genre Book Bash Author Interview – A.K. Michaels

akHere is my author interview with the talented author A.K. Michaels for the Multi Author, Multi Day, Multi Genre Book Bash – day one which is featuring vampire authors. She has several amazing series out including Supernatural Enforcement Bureau book one of The Dragon and The Vampire Series. This book is currently available for free so make sure to grab your copy today.

How long have you been a fan of vampires and do you have a favorite from the movies or books?
I’ve always loved supernatural stuff, Vamps, Shifters etc, and remember hiding behind the sofa when I was little when watching the old Vampire movies with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee!

How many books do you currently have on the market that have a vampire in them?
I’ve got an upcoming release which will be book 1 in my eighth series, almost thirty books published at the moment, although some are more focused on Shifters, most of them have Vampires in them.

What inspired you to write your first vampire book and what can readers expect to find once they read it?
I wanted to write something for adults, with real, strong men in the character roles. I love writing paranormal as it gives me the creative leeway to do whatever I want without the restrictions of the characters being human. I’d hope people would find suspense, action, and love in all of my stories.

If vampires really existed and you could choose to become one but had to leave the life as you currently know it behind would you do it yes or no and why?
Oh this is hard lol. I guess I wouldn’t, purely because I couldn’t leave my family behind.

Would you say that vampires are your favorite paranormal being and why or why not?
I love all my paranormals, Vampires, Shifters, Witches, Demons, Angels, but my very first book was written with the main hero as a Vampire.

If your vampire book(s) were to be turned into a movie and you could choose who would play the role as one of your leading vamps who would you choose and what role is it that they would play?
Oh dear goodness, what a question! Hmmm, there are so many I’d love to see as my Vamps! Ok, I’ll go with Hugh Jackman as Ronan from Supernatural Enforcement Bureau.

When it comes to vampires do you prefer yours as many of the old legends and myths speak of them or how TV has changed them over the years?
Mine aren’t either. My Vampires are men, tough, hard, but also good at heart with a desire to help people. They also can go out in daylight, without the need for any kind of magic etc.

Are there any specific vampire authors that you enjoy reading that have made your favorites list?
I absolutely love Eden Elsworth’s Real World series and I’ve read every single book in the series, along with others that she writes that are non Vampire related.

When it comes to your own vampire books what is one thing that you do to ensure that they are unique and will stand out against other books within the same genre?
My Vamps are not the usual stereotypical Vampires and I always have action and suspense, as well as love, in all my stories. I hope that makes them stand out to people.

Any big plans or projects planned for 2016 that you would like to share with us?
I have a brand new series launching March 15th which is Guild of Dragon Warriors and as is the case with my other books, there’s a host of different beings in it. Everything from Dragon Shifters to Witches, and even a God or two.
