Angie Fox Interview Intro
Hello Book Monsters and Literal Addicts! Book Monster Reviews and LITERAL ADDICTION are very excited to welcome the incredible Angie Fox to our sites today.
Angie Fox is the New York Times bestselling author of several books about vampires, werewolves and things that go bump in the night.
She claims that researching her stories can be just as much fun as writing them. In the name of fact-finding, Angie has ridden with Harley biker gangs, explored the tunnels underneath Hoover Dam and found an interesting recipe for Mamma Coalpot’s Southern Skunk Surprise (she’s still trying to get her courage up to try it).
Angie earned a Journalism degree from the University of Missouri. She worked in television news and then in advertising before beginning her career as an author.
Angie is the creator of THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER series, as well as a numerous amount of stand-alone novels and anthologies.
THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER series currently consists of four books - "The Accidental Demon Slayer", "The Dangerous Book For Demon Slayers", "A Tale of Two Demon Slayers" and "The Last Demon Slayer".
Angie also has an upcoming release "Immortally Yours" that is scheduled to release on August 28, 2012 and we'll be checking that out as well.
Now, let's take a look at all four books in THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER series and Angie's upcoming release "Immortally Yours" …..
Release Date: August 28, 2012
IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE GODS…
No one patches up the incoming wounded like Dr. Petra Robichaud. Recruited by the gods for her uncanny medical skills, she’s the best M*A*S*H surgeon in the army. Along with a nosy guard sphinx, vegetarian werewolf, and other paranormal paramedics, she bandages soldiers who are built like Greek gods (literally.) But when one sexy immortal ends up on her operating table—half dead and totally to-die-for—Petra’s afraid she’ll lose her patient and her heart…
NOTHING IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN LOVE
Commander Galen of Delphi is one gorgeous but stubborn demi-god. When his spirit tries to slip out of his fatally wounded body, Dr. Petra has to slip it back in—unwittingly revealing her ability to see ghosts. Now that Galen knows her secret, he’s convinced she’s part of an ancient prophesy. If the oracles are right, Petra could lead Galen’s army to peace.
And if he seduces her on the way to hell and back?
Heaven knows—all’s fair in love and war…
"The Accidental Demon Slayer",
THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER, Book 1
Straight-laced preschool teacher, Lizzie Brown, never lies, never cusses, and doesn’t really care much for surprises. When her long lost Grandma Gertie shows up on her doorstep on a neon pink Harley Davidson wearing a “Kiss My Asphalt” t-shirt and hauling a carpet bag full of Smuckers jars filled with road kill magic, Lizzie doesn’t think her life could get any stranger. That is, until her hyper-active terrier starts talking and an ancient demon decides to kill her from his perch on the back of her toilet.
Lizzie learns she’s a demon slayer, fated to square off with the devil’s top minion in, oh about two weeks. Sadly, she’s untrained, unfit and under attack. Grandma’s gang of seventy-something biker witches promises to whip Lizzie into shape in no time, as long as she joins them out on the road. But Lizzie wants nothing to do with all this craziness. She simply wants her normal life back. When she accidentally botches the spell meant to protect her, she only has one choice – trust the utterly delicious but secretive man who claims to be her protector.
Dimitri Kallinikos has had enough. Cursed by a demon centuries ago, his formerly prominent clan has dwindled down to himself and his younger twin sisters, both of whom are now in the coma that precedes certain death. To break the curse, he must kill the demon behind it. Dimitri needs a slayer. At long last, he’s found Lizzie. But how do you talk a girl you’ve never met into going straight to Hell? Lie (and hope she forgives you). Dimitri decides to pass himself off as Lizzie’s fated protector in order to gain her trust and guide her towards this crucial mission. But will his choice to deceive her cost them their lives, or simply their hearts?
"The Dangerous Book For Demon Slayers"
THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER, Book 2
Demon-slaying powers should come with an instruction book…
Seriously. Why does a new hair dryer have a twelve-page how-to manual, but when it comes to ancient demon-fighting hocus-pocus, my biker witch granny gives me just half a dozen switch stars and a rah-rah speech? Oh, and a talking terrier, but that’s another story. It’s not like my job as a preschool teacher prepared me for this kind of thing.
So I’ve decided to write my own manual, The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, because no one tells me anything. Dimitri, my “protector,” may be one stud of a shape-shifting griffin, but he always thinks he can handle everything by himself. Only he’s no match for the soul-stealing succubi taking over Las Vegas. If I can’t figure out how to save him—and Sin City—there’ll be hell to pay.
"A Tale of Two Demon Slayers"
THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER, Book 3
Last month, I was a single preschool teacher whose greatest thrill consisted of color-coding my lesson plans. That was before I learned I was a slayer. Now, it’s up to me to face curse-hurling imps, vengeful demons, and any other supernatural uglies that crop up. And, to top it off, a hunk of a shape-shifting griffin has invited me to Greece to meet his family.
But it’s not all sun, sand, and ouzo. Someone has created a dark-magic version of me with my powers and my knowledge—and it wants to kill me and everyone I know. Of course, this evil twin doesn’t have Grandma’s gang of biker witches, a talking Jack Russell terrier, or an eccentric necromancer on its side. In the ultimate showdown for survival, may the best demon slayer win.
"The Last Demon Slayer".
THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER, Book 4
Lizzie Brown would just like to have one normal date. Instead she gets a towering inferno with a message: her long-lost dad is a fallen angel in danger of becoming a demon. Not good. Especially since she’s a demon slayer.
Her grandma advises her to stay out of it. Her sexy-as-sin shapeshifter boyfriend would much rather she devote her attention to more carnal pursuits. And her dog’s one demand is for more bacon. After all, he can’t train his pet dragon on an empty stomach.
But Lizzie knows there’s no other choice but to hop on her Harley and help her father – even if the search for the truth brings a bad-boy slayer back into her life and leads her into the middle of a war to end all wars.
We know! They sound incredible and you just can't get enough!! Before ya'll run off to start ordering the books, check out our interview with Angie to learn more about the incredible author behind the books…
with Angie Fox
Angie: Thanks! I’m glad to be here.
Q1): Can you tell us 3 things about yourself that we can't find out on the internet, in your bio, etc?
2) In college, I skipped class for a week so I could read Ann Rice’s entire vampire series straight through
3) I am a total Parrot Head and have seen Jimmy Buffett in concert fifteen times. Frankly, I don’t know whether to be proud or slightly embarrassed by that.
2) How old where you when you first realized you wanted to be a writer? Was there anyone or anything in particular that inspired you?
3) Do you have any interesting writing quirks or things that you must have with you to begin the writing process?
Angie: I have to be on the green couch in the living room. That’s “the” place to write. My dog snuggles up next to me. Or, if she’s feeling nosy, she gets up on the pillow above me and supervises.
I also have to start a chapter in Times New Roman single space. That’s my font for creating. Then when I’m feeling like it’s come together pretty well, I switch over to Courier New double space and that somehow re-sets my mind and gives me a fresh look so I can edit and tweak. And I can’t move on to a new chapter until I’m feeling pretty set about the one before it.
4) What is a typical day like in the life of Angie Fox?
It’s more like my dog gets me out of bed. She hangs with me while I write in the mornings. We go until about 1:00 p.m. Then in the afternoon, I’ll answer emails or work on promotions or (and this is my favorite) I’ll read for fun.
5) What are some of your hobbies, or things that you enjoy doing when you’re not writing or taking care of other author business?
6) What are some of your favorite TV shows and movies?
7) I (Carla) come up with my best ideas while I'm laying in bed *trying* to fall asleep. When or where do you come up with your best ideas?
8) Do you have a personal favorite book among those you have written so far? Maybe one that holds special meaning for you, etc?
9) If you could spend the day with any one of your characters, who would it be, and what would you want to do?
10) So far THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYERS series has 4 books (not including novellas and anthologies). Do you intend to write more stories in this world?
11) How many books do you have planned for the ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER series?
12): What are some of the challenges (research, literary, psychological, logistical, etc) of bringing THE ACCIDENTAL DEMON SLAYER series to life on the pages?
Occasionally, I’ll let a side story stay in there. Like in A Tale of Two Demon Slayers, Pirate adopts a pet. But he’s a dog. He’s a pet. A pet can’t have a pet. So Lizzie decides to get rid of the dragon. Only she’s busy fighting the bad guys and she keeps telling Pirate to find the dragon a good home. Only he’s hiding the dragon and every time Lizzie turns around, Flappy isn’t gone . Instead, the dragon is getting bigger and bigger and it’s all getting out of hand.
I felt her pain because I was trying to get rid of Flappy too. I didn’t feel like the series needed another character. Flappy was supposed to be in one or two scenes – tops. But he just wouldn’t leave. Now he’s a main character and I’m still not quite sure how it happened.
13) Congratulations! You have a new release coming out in August titled "Immortally Yours". Is this book a stand-alone or will this be the beginning of a new series?
15) What other projects do you have in the works that you can share with us?
16) What has been the most rewarding experience of your career so far?
Angie: When readers email or stop by a signing and tell me that one of the books helped them through a tough time or made them smile when they really needed it. It doesn’t get any better than that.
17) If you could have any one super power, what would you want it to be? Why that one?
Teleportation. I’m not crazy about driving. I just want to get there. Plus, it would be fun to pop up behind people.
18) If you could describe your life up to this moment in 5 words what would they be?
Watch. Out. For. That. Tree.
(Bonus points if you know where that is from)
19) What legacy do you hope to leave your readers with?
20) Is there anything specific you would like to say to your readers while we have you here today?Angie: Thanks for the love and support throughout the years! The emails and letters mean so much to me.
