In honor of Richelle Mead’s latest release in the Vampire Academy series, Blood Promise. SciFiChick.com is participating in her blog tour and is just one of 6 stops along the way. Read her answers to a few questions below, and then follow along the tour to hear more from the author.
Tell us about your latest installment of the Vampire Academy series.
The latest book is called Blood Promise and just came out in August. It’s hard for me describe it, without giving away the ending to the previous book—which was HUGE. Here’s what I can say, though. In Blood Promise, Rose is trying to right the wrongs of the last book and finds herself going abroad to do it. This is the first book that doesn’t take place at the school and the first time we’ve seen Rose and her best friend Lissa apart.
What inspires you?
I’ve wanted to be a writer my entire life and have always had stories inside my head. When that happens, you can’t help but want to get those out on paper! So, I definitely feel a drive to tell my characters’ stories. Having so many devoted writers is inspiring too, so I’ve always got them in mind and want to make sure I deliver a good book for them!
Do you have any other upcoming projects? What’s next for you?
More writing! I’m currently contracted out for a total of ten more books between my three series, so I’m going to be continuing those for at least the next few years.
