Blood Flows Deep in the Empire
About the author:
N. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At age 3, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she had already begun to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life. An avid reader in her teens, a fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fanfiction.
Her on again, off again hobby for the next ten years, She amassed a following of fans that, by her own admission, she would never be able to live without. It was those fans who encouraged her to step beyond the fanfiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world.
N. Isabelle’s first ebook, “Destructively Alluring”, came out July 2012, followed by “Addictive Lunacy” in September. The third novella in this debut series, “Allure Magnified,” is due in November 2012 and her first full-length novel is due out next spring.
Certain not to disappoint, “Blood Flows Deep in the Empire” is a fast-paced, erotically charged thrill ride from cover to cover. Look for in both print and ebook formats on March 7, 2013.
Our interview with N. Isabelle Blanco
Tell us about your book/series. What makes it/them worth reading?
They’re definitely different. This series in particular. It’s an insane mash-up of my love for mythology, action, sci-fi, and of course…sex LOL
How long have you been writing and what inspired you to do it?
I’ve been writing since I was thirteen, but it was always a hobby. I actually got really serious about it two years ago. I was always that kid with her nose in a book, and reading is definitely my most consuming obsession. My passion for stories eventually got out of control in my own head, and I had to sit down and start bringing some of these worlds to life.
What do you think causes people’s enduring fascination with vampires?
Blood. SEX. Immortality. The promise of being more than human. We are such a pathetically fragile species. It’s just the reality of our existences. Vampires embody everything we wish we could be, and then some.
What are you reading right now? Would you recommend it?
I’m reading like ten things at once, LOL. But off the top of my head, I’d recommend anything by Milly Taiden. That woman’s werewolves are HOT. K.I. Lynn’s “Breach” is also smoking. And Larissa Ione’s Demonica Series. If you haven’t started that one yet, I can guarantee you that you’re missing out.
The vampires are attacking! Grab the first thing you see to your right and hit them with it! What was it? And how do you think you did in the ensuing fight?
A Styrofoam cup with water in it. Obviously, I will be losing this fight majorly. All I’m praying for is that bite. You know, the one that makes me one of them :p
The afore mentioned vampire attack didn’t go so well and you were bitten by the vampire…now what?
Oh. Don’t tease me with my wildest dream. That is just cruel. I yearn. Yearn, I say!
In the event of a zombie apocalypse what item would you make sure that you took with you to your underground safety bunker? (we will presume that your family are already safely in the bunker!)
Let’s see. I got the food. The gun. The grenade launcher. The knives and swords…oh! Hot guy who’s going to help relieve my stress. Get over here!
You are planning an awesome dinner party. Which 3 celebrities/fictional characters/historical figures (past or present) would you add to your guest list?
I am convinced that your goal with these questions is to show the world how weird I am…you shall succeed.
I’d invite Remington Tate from Katy Evan’s “Real”. And Wraith from Larissa Ione’s “Passion Unleashed.” Lastly, I’d invite Cleopatra because that female is going to teach me how to thoroughly seduce the two aforementioned males.
Can you give us three, scandalous facts about yourself you wouldn’t even want your own mother to know about 😉
Umm…she knows them all. She made me the way I am today LOL!
But I’ll hit you with three anyway (And remember that you asked for scandalous):
1. I have an entire drawer full of “toys”. I’ve been single forever, and yet all I do is read and write the sex. *Shakes head* Bad, Nyddi. I know. Most likely masochistic, too.
2. I think guy on guy is so hot. And, yet, I can’t stand girl on girl. I am soul-searching and trying to figure out why that is. I am aware that liking one and not the other just might be a tad-bit hypocritical. Then again, that’s how guys feel about liking girl on girl LOL
3. I would love to travel to Scotland, England, Germany, and France, and have me one sexy man in each location. Actually, that’s probably how I’m going to end my horridly long dry spell. Yes! *Slams hand on desk* I’m loving this idea!
Where can readers find your books?
I’m on all major selling websites, but we all know that Amazon leads the way :p
Is there anything you would like to say to your readers?
Thank you. Above all us, thank you. You help me keep going even during those times when it gets so damned hard and all I want to do sometimes is stop. Without you all, I have no idea where I would be. I love you so hard, it hurts.
