Author Interview & Giveaway: Black Heart Loa by Adrian Phoenix

Today, I have author Adrian Phoenix here to talk about her Hoodoo series.  The second book in the series, Black Heart Loa, was just released yesterday.  Here’s a link for the first chapter of Hoodoo Book #1  Black Dust Mambo.  And a link for the first two chapters of the just-released Black Heart Loa, Hoodoo Book #2.

Two lucky people will have a chance to win an autographed copy of the Hoodoo series (Black Dust Mambo and Black Heart Loa).  Two additional winners will be selected to win an autographed copy (1 book) of any of Adrian’s titles, winner’s choice.  Details are listed at the end of the post.

Author Bio:

As a writer, a person, and a mother, I’ve always believed in following your dreams, following your heart. It’s also important to keep your heart, so I also believe in being prepared for zombie attacks and can’t stress enough the importance of having regular family drills so every member of the household is zombie-ready. One never knows.Make sure the sofa is ready to push in front of the door. be clear that if a member of the family is on the wrong side of the door when the zombie action goes down. They remain on the wrong side of the door. The greater good, etc.

I live in Springfield, Oregon in a zombie-free home (except when meeting deadlines) with three cats, Amiga, Diabla, and Ember and have two sons and three grandchildren and two granddogs. I hope one day to write a masterpiece like my father’s parody of Jaws, a work written on yellow legal paper entitled Beak, the story of a rogue twenty thousand pound Cornish game hen and the men who seek to end its deadly rampage. If i write anything half as funny (and this involved tears and gasping for air), I’ll be happy.

Welcome Adrian!

Thanks so much for having me again!  It’s always a pleasure hanging out on Dark Faerie Tales.

DFT: What was your inspiration for the Hoodoo series?

Adrian: Just my love of Louisiana and its varied culture. I’d read a lot about hoodoo and the rootworkers and root doctors who conjure with it. I wanted to explore that world, the bayous, and the people who work, live, and play there.

DFT: What should readers know before stepping into your world?

Adrian: I think the main thing would be that there is a difference between hoodoo and voodoo. Voodoo is a religion, with priestesses (mambos), priests (houngans) and devoted practitioners who participate in ceremonies to summon the loa (natural spirits and those of the dead), while hoodoo is a system of folk magic.

With hoodoo, there are no priests or priestesses or ceremonies, just individual root doctors and root workers (also known as conjurers) working out of their homes and/or botanicas. Root doctors/root workers are consulted by members of their neighborhoods and communities for spells/cures/potions when ill (or feeling a tad cursed or full of bad luck) as often as a person would visit the local pharmacy.

Laying tricks and foot magic, breaking/making hexes, creating natural medicines and cures for illnesses of all kinds—heart, body, and soul. Love potions, get-rid-of-your-enemy powders, poppets, etc.

DFT: Tell us about your heroine.

Adrian: You bet! Kallie is a young woman who has survived an inexplicable explosion of violence as a teenager that claimed her family, and has been learning hoodoo from her Aunt Gabrielle since coming to Bayou Cyprés Noir to live with her. Kallie is haunted by that one tragic event, and is determined to put it behind her. She took up boxing as a way to work off her pent-up anger and grief, her doubts. Hoodoo runs in the family, so Kallie took it naturally and without question. Kallie is fiery, strong, compassionate, loyal to her friends and family, a healthy and hot-blooded gal, and a little too quick to throw a punch. She’s not known for saying please or thank you or for being very patient. She’s very close to her cousin, Jackson, who also lives with her and their aunt.

Physically, she has long, dark coffee brown hair, violet eyes with a bit a tilt—her father was Cajun and her mother (another rootworker), was a mixed-blood Creole with cafe-au-lait skin.

DFT: Your urban fantasy world is populated with…

Adrian: Rootworkers, nomad conjurers and shamans, loup garou (werewolves), ghosts, loas, and magic. Fallen angels and vampires also hang out, but you’re more likely to find them in the city instead of the bayous. Other things are probably afoot as well, just undiscovered yet by the characters.

DFT: How do you maintain a story arc through the course of a series while still delivering a conflict and resolution in each book?

Adrian: Good question! One I’m not sure I have the answer for. LOL. I don’t analyze the writing process too much. When I do, it brings me to a dead stop and then I start over-thinking everything and can’t move forward. I trust my subconscious to know what it’s doing. Sorry, I realize that’s not very helpful. But it IS honest. ;)

DFT: Does plotting become easier or more challenging the further along into a series you get?

Adrian: It’s not so much the plotting that becomes more challenging as remembering everything that happened in previous books. Who said what to who? Which character knows this point and who doesn’t? So, yeah, I guess in a way that would contribute to making plotting a little more difficult, especially when you’re weaving in threads from previous books. All right, then. The answer is yes. LOL.

DFT: What are you working on now?

Adrian: I’m finishing up book five of The Maker’s Song series, On Midnight Wings (due out on February 28, 2012).

DFT: Was there a book that made you fall in love with the urban fantasy genre?

Adrian: I would say Rob Thurman’s Nightlife (in fact all the books in the Cal Leandros series). There are a lot of great urban fantasy authors: Jeri Smith-Ready, Jennifer Estep, Devon Monk, J.F. Lewis, Marjorie M. Liu, Mark Henry, Jenna Black, Alex Bledsoe, Kim Harrison, Phaedra Weldon, Jaye Wells . .. Some of my Faves in paranormal romance are Jeaniene Frost, D.B. Reynolds, Kelley Armstrong . . . I’m sure there are some I’m leaving out.

DFT: What are your biggest pet peeves with this genre?

Adrian:  Right now, I’d say it’s the lack of UF centered around male protagonists. And the covers that look all the same any more – tough chick in tattoos and skimpy clothing carrying a gun or sharp and pointy implement. Even UF with male leads end up with tough chicks on the covers. Sigh.

DFT: Is there a genre you haven’t written in that you’d like to try?

Adrian: I’d love to write a mystery or a thriller or a historical fantasy, preferably all three.

The Maker’s Song is my other UF series: A Rush of Wings, In the Blood, Beneath the Skin, Etched in Bone.

Thanks so much for having me! It’s been a blast.

DFT: Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

About the Book:

“An eye for an eye is never enough.”

Kallie Rivière, a Cajun hoodoo apprentice with a bent for trouble, learned the meaning of those ominous words when hoodoo bogeyman Doctor Heron targeted her family for revenge. Now, while searching for her still-missing bayou pirate cousin, Kallie finds out the hard way that someone is undoing powerful gris gris, which means that working magic has become as unpredictable as rolling a handful of dice. The wards woven to protect the Gulf coast are unraveling, leaving New Orleans and the surrounding bayous vulnerable just as an unnatural storm—the deadliest in a century—is born. As the hurricane powers toward the heart of all she loves, Kallie desperately searches for the cause of the disturbing randomness, only to learn a deeply unsettling truth: the culprit may be herself. To protect her family and friends, including the sexy nomad Layne Vallin, Kallie steps into the jaws of danger . . . and finds a loup garou designed to steal her heart—literally.

GIVEAWAY GUIDELINES:

Two lucky people will have a chance to win an autographed copy of the Hoodoo series (Black Dust Mambo and Black Heart Loa).  Two additional winners will be selected to win an autographed copy (1 book) of any of Adrian’s titles, winner’s choice.

    I’m assuming you can do both bad and good with hoodoo (as the person doing it sees fit), so if I were an apprentice, I would want to learn how to heal people with it. If that’s possible. Hey, I’m just an apprentice; what do I know!

    Thanks for comments, everyone, and for joining me on Dark Faerie Tales! Y’all have some very cool thoughts on what you’d like to learn as a hoodoo apprentice.

    Melinda: Laying down curses are tricky things and learning how to do them safely would be very smart indeed.

    Tanyaw1224: If Kallie can do a “shrivel package” trick, I’m sure you could do a “bigger boobs” one as well. ;)

    Debbie: Healing is a large part of hoodoo.

    Gef: There are hoodoo tricks for getting better jobs, having a successful business and even for winning a court case.

    Viki S. : All in is good. And healing is a part of hoodoo, definitely.

    Na: great goals and you could accomplish them.

    Bethany: Yup, both good and bad. And healing would be part of your training. :)

    Sharon S. : You could definitely make up a potion or trick that could be an all-natural Viagra. Make beaucoup bucks. ;)

    Rain Maiden: That WOULD be awesome. I’d love that one too. And thanks!

    Heather: Great goals! Definitely nothing wrong with good strong female characters–and more males!

    If I was as a Hoodoo apprentice I would definitely want to learn how to make healing potions. What better gift could there be then to heal a child, my kids are always sick so I’m obsessed with finding natural and medical cures that work. So being able to make my own would be heavenly and so satisfying :)

    Thanks for sharing Ms. Phoenix, this series looks great. I’m definitely going to pick up the first book.

    Stephanie,

    Well, the person receiving the curse would think it mean, lol, but it IS a part of hoodoo. Just hex responsibly. ;)

    I think it would have to be communicating with the dead. It would be nice to be able to say “hello” every now and then :)

    if I could , I would want to learn to heal everyone of every disease while at the same time keeping the perfect balance of all things so that no one ever knows sorrow or doubt, but I would want to throw a little revenge spell or maybe a few evil tricks in to keep the right balance of good and bad in the universe lol.

    Can I learn how to fly? No? Oh ok – if I were an apprentice I think I would like to specialize in potions. All kinds, but soothing soul healing ones i think would really interest me.
