BLOG TOUR (Interview) - Blood Stained Tranquility (The Rise of the Szolites #2) by N. Isabelle Blanco

The Book
Release Date: 17 December 2013

The wheels of destiny are spiraling out of control quicker than even the gods can keep up. They all thought they knew what war was like—but have no idea how bad things are about to get. In the continuation of the Szolite series, two of the most dangerous powers in the Universe will be unleashed, threatening to push two fated beings apart. 

A normal human girl. . .
Evesse Salazar never imagined that a violent end to her already difficult life would be just the beginning. After being thrown into a vortex, shredded apart, and killed, she is reborn as something more. Something she might not be able to manage. If that weren’t enough, she awakes newly mated to the last being in the Universe she ever would have chosen.
Now, with no other option, Eve must come to terms with her powers, her past, and her mate before he loses control of what might just be uncontrollable.

A god with a monster locked inside. . .
For over eleven thousand years, Zeniel, God of Tranquility, has done everything in his power to keep his other half, the God of Vengeance, from breaking free. A single glance from Mavrak is all it takes to kill those deemed guilty. The wraiths under his command can tear thousands to shreds in an instant, no matter how small their crimes. Zeniel knows he must remain at peace to keep Mavrak at bay, but he’s rendered helpless with one look into the eyes of his mate.
The longing for Evesse is enough to rip the demon out of its cage, and with the Gods on the verge of a cataclysmic war, Mavrak has every intention of gorging on both his mate, and the vengeance he so desperately needs.

1. What are you personal beliefs about love and destiny?
Nooo. As I’ve said in other interviews, I can’t fully get into this topic without it becoming a lecture of unprecedented proportions. LOL

But in a nutshell?

Newton’s Third Law; Life is b****; & Love makes Life seem like an innocent, benevolent force.

2. Who was more fun to write Evesse or Zeniel and why?
I loved them both. Zen because of how he and Mavrak both hungered for Eve. And Evesse? Well...she got to have the yuminess that is Zen. How can that not be fun? (And, Oh God, it was. Over 120,000 words once finished, and it still wasn’t enough for me :p)

3. If you were a god what would your power/emotion be?
Rage/ Destruction. *Gives her family and friends the side-eye* See? I can be honest.

4. What inspires your story lines?
They really just pop into my head on their own. There’s  no real planning involved when it comes to my stories. Now research? That’s a whole nother thing. Google hates me by now.

6. What do you fear most about being an author?
Honestly? Failure. This is an extremely tough and competitive career. It involves so much time and sacrifice. No human being wants to give that much up and walk away having failed.

7. Who is your favourite writer?
Man, there isn’t really just one, but if I must chose, I have to go with Kresley Cole. Hands-down. She owns me.

8. How many more Szolites novels can we expect?
I never get into the exact number of how many. That’s something that will depend on how well the next three or four novels go. I have 8 more planned as of right now, but that number can always be expanded.

Author Bio:
N. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began reading and writing. 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, her fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fan fiction, which became her on-again, off-again hobby for the next ten years. During that time 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 fan fiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world.
N. Isabelle Blanco now has three novellas and two full-length novels under her belt, and spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. Her free time is spent with her “spawn,” as she calls her son, brainstorming for his future career as a comic book illustrator.
