Q+A with Georgia McBride (Praefatio)

Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Georgia McBride.  Georgia is the author of Praefatio.

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

I began writing seriously in 2007 with PRAEFATIO.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

I try to write contemporary things, but every time I do, a vampire jumps out from behind the curtains. It’s very hard to stay on the contemporary path. I think fantasy is in my bones.

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

  I used to say I would want to fly. But now I suffer from terrible vertigo, and I don’t think that would be a good thing. I would love to be able to time travel.

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

  I hope readers will like a book where being paranormal isn’t the twist, and where they quickly appreciate the book being about something altogether different than they assumed.

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

Oh my. I should be so lucky. I think Grace could easily be played by someone like Isabelle Fuhrman or Rachel Hurd-Wood. Gavin is a tough one. Maybe Zach Efron or Sterling Beaumon.

Praefatio (Praefatio #1) by Georgia McBride.

Seventeen-year-old Grace Ann Miller is no ordinary runaway...

After having been missing for weeks, Grace is found on the estate of international rock star Gavin Vault, half-dressed and yelling for help. Over the course of twenty-four hours Grace holds an entire police force captive with incredulous tales of angels, demons, and war; intent on saving Gavin from lockup and her family from worry over her safety.

Authorities believe that Grace is ill, suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, the victim of assault and a severely fractured mind. Undeterred, Grace reveals the secret existence of dark angels on earth, an ancient prophecy and a wretched curse steeped in Biblical myth. Grace’s claims set into motion an ages-old war, resulting in blood, death and the loss of everything that matters. But are these the delusions of an immensely sick girl, or could Grace’s story actually be true?

Praefatio is Grace’s account of weeks on the run, falling in love and losing everything but her faith. When it’s sister against brother, light versus darkness, corrupt police officers, eager doctors and accusing journalists, against one girl with nothing but her word as proof: who do you believe?

Release Date: May 21, 2013
