Q+A with Victoria Scott (The Collector)

Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Victoria Scott.  Victoria is the author of The Collector.

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

  I began writing about two years and a half years ago. It's been an amazing journey!

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

I adore paranormal because it skyrockets romance to a galactic level. Emotions are stronger, lust burns brighter, and the risks of getting involved are more dangerous.

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

  Oh, I'd totally have leathery, black wings that unfurled when I was angry. How kick ass would that be?

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

  I think readers will enjoy THE COLLECTOR because Dante Walker is a different kind of a hero. He's the one telling the story, and he's a scandalous kinda' guy. I always wanted to write a story where the main character was...well...bad.

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

  I'd cast Zac Efron as Dante because he's a great actor who certainly has the looks, and Emma Watson because she could play a fabulously cute nerd.

The Collector (Dante Walker #1) by Victoria Scott.

He makes good girls...bad.  

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence has made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big, red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.  

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:  

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within 10 days.  

Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect—he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.
