Today we are talking with Ari Harper about the second book in her Curse of Kin series - Changling. So grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy this interview.
Can you tell us about your book, CHANGLING, in 10 words or less?
Changling is about Sully and his place in the group.
How long did it take you to write CHANGLING?
Not sure exactly because I wrote the first three books in this series together. I think all up it took me about six months non-stop frenetic writing.
We went from having a female on the cover of WITCHLING to a male on the cover of CHANGLING. Are they both from the same POV or are we now going to be in the head of a different character?
We stay in Nera's POV through the whole series even though each book is centred around one main character and their 'place' in the circle of friends.
What was your favorite scene to write?
'Spoiler alert' When Sully has been wounded and has to change back. That took some work because it felt so personal for some reason. I really had to get into character for that one and you don't want to know the things I got up to and the looks from my family as I acted out parts.
If you could cast anyone to play some of the main characters, who would you choose?
I would rather go with unknowns and give the books a chance to stand alone.
Did any music inspire you while writing CHANGLING?
For sure. I always, always put P!NK on my earphones and blast it over and over again.
Will there be another book after CHANGLING? Can we expect a trilogy or are you anticipating taking it further than that?
Treason is the next book in the series and it tells Brie's story. I have to admit to bawling my eyes out in this book. It was gut wrenching to write some of those scenes. All up there are four books. Bones is the last book.
What is currently in your TBR pile?
I think it would be easier to say what isn't? I'm a compulsive book whore, excuse my language. I never stop buying even though I haven't read most of what I have on my kindle or from the pile of books next to my bed.
Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate
Cats or Dogs? Dogs I have three.
Once Upon a Time or Revenge? I haven't seen either, sorry I don't watch much tv.
The Hunger Games or The Mortal Instruments? Mortal Instruments - love love loved it
Chinese or Thai? Thai
Ebooks or Hardcopies? Both
Harry or Ron? pass
Coke or Pepsi? I prefer a good cup of tea
