Tour Kick Off: Blood Red by Vivian Wolkoff

Blood Red: The Complete First Season

Paranormal Romance

Date Published: January 15,  2015

Evie Williams lives a boring life – and she likes it that way. Her world is very black and white. Routine is good. Excitement is bad. She’s happy to play by her self-imposed rules. After all, they help her keep her abusive, stalker ex-boyfriend at bay. Or so she believes…
But there’s more to the world than Evie could possibly imagine. Elves, vampires, witches and pro-Humanity terrorists are very real – and she can sense the danger they pose to her and others. Worst of all, they just realized how precious Evie’s gift is.
As the world Evie never imagined possible closes in on her, Chris, the vampire in charge of studying Evie, is getting more and more interested in her… and it has nothing to do with his loyalty to his vampire father.
Blood Red: The Complete First Season is a story of unlikely heroes, damsels who refuse to be in distress and political conflicts solved by fights to the death.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
A: Oh, yes! I can’t see how art – any type of art – can be anything other than a career when it’s something that you need to do to survive. You can write or dance or paint as a hobby, which is great, in my opinion. But personally, I can’t do something else from 9 to 5 and write on the weekends. I’m always thinking of writing. I get antsy when I don’t write for too long. I need to write. So I decided long ago that I might as well make a career out of it. Never looked back.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
A: It’s the midpoint in a project. I have no problem plotting work or coming up with characters. I even like revision and editing. But there’s a moment halfway through a project – usually a novel-length work – when I start wondering if the plot is solid, if the story is worth the reader’s time, if I’m not wasting time I could use for another story. I learned that when these moments come, I just have to take a deep breath and soldier on.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
A: I feel very lucky that I have solid a support system. I have great friends who will beta read for me and give me their honest opinion and I found communities online where I can talk about my writing life and ask for advice. I know this is pretty rare. I appreciate each person who is there for me.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
A: Oh, I’m halfway through the second season of Blood Red right now (yep! I’m taking deep breaths!). Next, I’m going to end a suspense trilogy I started in 2012. After that, I have a couple of more projects I want to develop, but I rather not talk about them right now.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
A: Oh, I was addict to reading even before I could write! I used to sit under the TV late at night with my favorite book in my lap, just looking at the words and dreaming of the day I could read them. I loved my mother’s voice… but I wanted to read my books all by myself. Nowadays, I’ll read anything you put in front of me! There’s no genre I won’t read. Right now, I’m reading “Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm a Supervillain”, by Richard Roberts.

A: “Girl meets Boy. Boy is a vampire. Girl has magic Spidey sense. They fall in love anyway.”

Vivian Wolkoff has always been in love with words – even before she could read them. So, it should be no surprise she turned to writing and reading very early in life. She first self-published a poetry book at the age of 13, followed by two honorary mentions in contests promoted by a small publishing house in her native Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Then, she decided to do some living and find out what else she loved. After college and moving cross-continent twice, Vivian decided to turn to self-publishing again. She is the author of Showmance, the first book in a trilogy about a fake celebrity couple and their crazy fans, and the psychological thriller Love You To Death. Blood Red is the first novel in her Preternatural Chronicles – a shared universe filled with unlikely heroes, damsels who refuse to be in distress, intrigue and epic adventures.
