Richelle Mead Blog Tour

Blood PromiseIn 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.

Product Description:
Since its CBS debut in the summer of 1968, the masterful British TV series THE PRISONER has captivated American audiences. Now A&E presents a definitive aficionado’s edition of the cult classic which is considered one of the most innovative TV series ever filmed, for the first time in breathtaking Blu-Ray. Fully restored from the original film elements with newly remixed 5.1 surround sound and featuring hours of bonus material never released in North America, THE PRISONER: BLU-RAY EDITION is a fitting tribute to the creative vision of the late Executive Producer and Star Patrick McGoohan.

After resigning from a top-secret position, a man (McGoohan) is abducted and spirited from his London home to a mysterious place known only as ‘The Village.’ Village Residents, known only by numbers, are held captive because each possesses valuable knowledge. The Prisoner, now known as Number Six, battles to protect his mind — and his humanity — while struggling to discover the identity of Number One and escape captivity.

HOURS OF EXCITING NEW BONUS FEATURES: Newly remixed 5.1 surround sound for all 17 episodes (in addition to the original mono tracks). ‘Don’t Knock Yourself Out’: Feature-length documentary chronicling the production of THE PRISONER, told by those involved in its creation; Two Brand-New Featurettes: ‘The Pink Prisoner’ and ‘You Make Sure it Fits!’; Promo for AMC’s THE PRISONER Miniseries; Newly restored original edit of ‘Arrival’ with an optional music-only soundtrack featuring Wilfred Josephs’ complete and abandoned score; Original edit of ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’; Production crew audio commentaries on seven episodes; Trailers for all episodes; Archive textless material, including the title sequence with clean ! themes by Ron Grainer, Wilfred Josephs and Robert Farnon; Commercial break bumpers; Image Archive with over 1200 stills; Production Paperwork Archive, featuring scripts, call sheets and press releases (DVD-ROM Feature)
