I want to share these interviews now (and yes, this post is kind of long—for me). A Vampire Wedding is due out this month (that pesky copy editor, who happens to be my daughter, is finally working on my piece—yay!), and the “interviewer,” Perry, returns in that novella, so what better time to share these with everyone else?
For those who haven’t read this series, Perry first showed up in Bite Me, I’m Yours and then later in Blind Temptation. He’s one of my favorite characters (probably why he keeps popping up in my books) and I had a lot of fun writing the scenes between him and Victoria in Blind Temptation (and no, he’s not the hero in that book). And that’s when I came up with the idea of him interviewing the Committee Members for their vampire website. The second interview is with Jack (My Sunny Vampire) and I’ll post that next Friday.
If you subscribe to my newsletter and have already read this, sorry for the repeat. Unless you really, really liked it, then you can enjoy it again!
Getting to Know Your Committee Members by Perry Davenport.
First up: Victoria Braeden
Perry: [snickers] Lighten up, Vicky.
Perry: Maybe when you start liking it.
Perry: What was that? I didn’t hear you.
Perry: Just so you readers know,
doesn’t like to
be called Vicky, so if you’d like to see her all riled up, that’d be a way to
do it. Victoria
Perry: Whatever you say,
. Why don’t we get started? My name is
Perry Davenport, as if you didn’t already guess, and I’ve been summoned to
interview each Committee Member so all you vampires out there might understand
them a little better. Victoria
Perry: And a good one at that, too. Don’t you think? Our first guest, as if you couldn’t tell, is the not-so-lovely Victoria Braeden.
Perry: Only the difficult ones.
[sound of Perry’s arm getting punched]
Perry: Feel better?
Perry: You’re right, and I apologize. So let’s get on with this, shall we? As many of you know, she became a member in 1932. But let’s find out stuff you don’t know.
, do you have a favorite blood type? Victoria
Perry: Even diabetics? I love that nice sweet taste as it rolls over my tongue. Real rush!
Perry: How about sex? Prefer one over the other?
Perry: I meant the sex of your donor.
Perry: Oooh… Tell us more.
Perry: Controlling, was he?
Perry: Whatever. What type of music do you enjoy?
Perry: Anything more…modern?
Perry: How about something in the 21st century? Like 50 cent. Coldplay. Maroon 5. Neon Trees.
Perry: I’ll take that as a no, then. What’s your favorite vacation spot?
Perry: Can you be a little more specific?
Perry: You know, you’re allowed to elaborate. Maybe you’d be better at a quick round. Which do you prefer? House on the beach or cabin in the woods?
Perry: That’s not what I… [groans]. Between those two, and it doesn’t matter where in the world, which would you prefer?
Perry: They’re not stupid. They’re supposed to make you think. How about, granny panties, silky thong, or commando?
Perry: They don’t. What do you like? Which are you wearing?
Perry: I don’t see a panty line so I’m thinking commando. Or maybe a thong.
[sound of chair sliding across the floor followed by the slam of a door]***
Perry: Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? Come back next month when I interview Jack VanAllen. Someone who will probably be more cooperative than
Notes from Perry:
* If I knew German, I’d put down what she said. But I don’t so I won’t even try. However, I’m pretty sure she was cussing. She likes to cuss in German.
got final look at the material. It
just wasn’t the material I published. Victoria
has a glare that could melt ice.
I’m just saying… Victoria
Will Perry ever have his own book? If I continue with the series, he most likely will. He’s a fun character to write, that’s for sure.
So… Got plans for the weekend? I’m going to see “Captain
War” on Sunday. Already have my tickets. Can’t wait! America
Have a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day!
