Book Spotlight + Author Interview: Blood & Lilies by Lyn Croft

Who's in the spotlight today? That'd be Lyn Croft, author of Blood & Lilies! Looking for something a little more supernatural in your reading list? Check out this book.

First in the Bloodlines Series

Once cast from Heaven, Zillah has vowed to destroy God and overtake his kingdom. But a key is needed to open the gates between the two realms.

The Key to the gate walks the earth in the form of a woman...young, innocent and completely unaware of her importance in the battle between good and evil. Once her blood is shed, Zillah can open the portal to release her father...Lucifer himself.

Cara, a college sophomore, is quickly thrown into the world of the supernatural, as well as learning of her true ancestry. Vampires, werewolves and the Nephilim are now a part of her reality. As the beings struggle to protect her, she fights to keep her sanity as her mortal realm is crushed.

Secrets are revealed that could shatter Cara’s new found love, as well as lead to her ultimate death. A family is torn apart as the battle to save the key leads them down a road of betrayal and heartache. Loved ones are lost, lines are crossed, and nothing is as it seems. Lies and truths twist and turn, leaving us with only one question…

1) Hi Lyn! Thank you so much for agreeing to be in the spotlight today. Let's start with a lightning round, shall we? Please fill in the blanks:

* My favorite snack food is Chips and Salsa
* One book that I've read over and over is Twilight, by Stepanie Meyer
* Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a television show that I can't get enough of.
* Right now I'd absolutely recommend you read Ellie Stanton (The Heller Park Series), by Aurora Zahni

2) What was your inspiration for Blood and Lilies?

I’ve always been intrigued with mythology of angels and demons, and have a deep love for vampires. I wanted to explore this world and give my take on their origins.

3) Can you share with us what you enjoy about writing Fantasy? Also if I'm wrong about the genre, please correct me! ;)

I do write fantasy as well, and love the genre. There’s a freedom that comes with it, by being able to create your monsters. There is also a challenge of being able to make it believable to the readers as well. I get to create worlds that don’t exist in our reality, and think it’s a wonderful escape.

4) What was your favorite part about the writing process?

Watching the story come to life on the pages. It’s remarkable to watch it happen.

5) What would you say to readers who are looking at picking up a copy of Blood and Lilies?
