My name is Kristen Painter and while you might know me for my paranormal romances, I’ve got a brand new gothic urban fantasy series coming out this fall from Orbit Books. The first book in the series, Blood Rights, will be available October 1st.
Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?
The world I’ve created is populated by vampires, shape shifters, fae and some creatures of my own making. Namely, the comarre, a hybrid human race created specifically to serve the needs of noble vampires.
What should readers know before stepping into your world?
There isn’t too much anyone needs to know before they start reading the House of Comarre series. Just turn the page and dive in! The series is set about fifty years into the future, but the world is still very accessible. And full of vampires.
Are there any special events, panels or galleys you are looking forward to?
Mostly I’m looking forward to taking the whole BEA experience in, getting to see some friends and meeting the rest of the awesome Orbit crew!
Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
Will you be doing an autograph signing at the expo? Any other fun stuff on your agenda?
I’ll be signing at the Orbit book at 10 AM on Thursday. I’d love to meet anyone who wants to stop by and say hello.
What other projects are you working on that you would like to tell us about?
The first three books come out this October, November and December so obviously those books are written. What I’m working on now is the writing of the fourth and fifth books in the series.
