Paranormal Guest Author: Kristen Painter (House of Comarré Series)
















Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Kristen Painter!  Kristen is the author of Heart of Fire, Dark Kiss of the Reaper, and the House of Comarré series which includes Blood Rights, Flesh and Blood, and Bad Blood.

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

Kristen:
  I've been writing all my life in some form: poetry, short stories, non-fiction articles. I began writing with the goal of publication about six years ago.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

Kristen:
  I love the open-endedness of the What If that paranormal offers. There are truly no limits in that genre, only those you impose on yourself.

EJ:  If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?

Kristen: 
I'd love to be able to teleport, mostly because I hate waiting. lol

EJ:  Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.

Kristen:
  I hope they enjoy it because it meets their reading need - to be swept away into another place, to forget about life for awhile, or just to experience something new.

EJ:  If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?

Kristen:
  That's a tough question. There aren't any actors in Hollywood that immediately come to mind, so I'd probably want unknowns.























Blood Rights (House of Comarré #1) by Kristen Painter

The lacy gold mapped her entire body. A finely-wrought filigree of stars, vines, flowers, butterflies, ancient symbols and words ran from her feet, up her legs, over her narrow waist, spanned her chest and finished down her arms to the tips of her fingers.

Born into a life of secrets and service, Chrysabelle’s body bears the telltale marks of a comarré—a special race of humans bred to feed vampire nobility. When her patron is murdered, she becomes the prime suspect, which sends her running into the mortal world…and into the arms of Malkolm, an outcast vampire cursed to kill every being from whom he drinks.

Now Chrysabelle and Malkolm must work together to stop a plot to merge the mortal and supernatural worlds. If they fail, a chaos unlike anything anyone has ever seen will threaten to reign.
