PSB: Interview & Giveaway with Lilith Saintcrow

PSB2

I’m super happy to have the Amazing Lilith Saintcrow by my side today! You might know her for her Dante Valentine series, or maybe her Jill Kismet series, but she’s here today to talk about her Strange Angels series, because the fourth book, Defiance, hits the shelves in April! Make sure to read the interview for a lot of fun, the reveal of the fifth book’s title *squee* and a giveaway!

1- With the way Jealousy ended, I think we are getting closer and closer to discovering which destiny is awaiting Dru, what can we expect in this fourth installment?

Defiance is where I start the process of taking things away from Dru. She's going to have to learn to rely on herself in new and unexpected ways. Plus, one of Dru's friends is working for Sergej, and we haven't seen the last of Anna, and there are some new faces in Dru's world. Not to mention Christophe has some secrets and his own agenda.

Also in this book, Dru hits the defiant stage of growing-up--she begins to make her own decisions instead of being pushed from place to place by events. This is a big change, and it's difficult for her and everyone around her. Her need for independence has several consequences, and since she's in such an extreme position as a svetocha those consequences can be deadly.
 
2- I don't wanna give anything away in case some of my readers haven't read the third book yet, but our Heroine will be diving head first on what seems a very hard quest. Will she have her friend's support?

I think the bigger question is, who really is Dru's friend, and who has other motivations for getting close to her?
 
3- Did any of your characters give you a hard time while writing this book?

Not so much a hard time as an unexpected one. In particular, Ash surprised me and took off in a direction I wasn't planning for. It's heartening when characters do that, actually, because it means the work is taking on an organic shape of its own. It's behaving more like an organism than a disparate collection of parts, and that's a very good sign. That's when a book comes alive.
 
4- Usually, who's the boss, you or your characters?

Me. Good, bad, I'm the one with the word processor.
 
5- If you had to find a romantic match for Dru, Christophe and Graves, from another book/TV show, who would they be and why?

I think Dru would really like to hang out with Dean Winch ester; they'd probably have a great deal in common. Graves? Well, I have this mental image of him dating Willow from the early seasons of Buffy; but Christophe? I can't think of anyone. He's very definite about who and what he wants, and I can't imagine him any other way.
 
6- Books are like your babies. What do you consider a bad review, and how do you react to one?

I don't respond to reviews, good or bad. Of course I'm human, I dislike it when it's clear a reviewer has a personal problem that gets projected onto the book, or when it's clear the reader didn't pay attention or even read the book in question. But responding to reviews is just not something I'm interested in. Occasionally I'll bitch about a review to my trusted friend and beta reader, but that's pretty rare.
 
7- What has been the most rewarding and most difficult aspects when writing this series?

Hands down, the most rewarding thing has been the response from teen readers. I'm constantly blown away by their energy and enthusiasm. Smart, funny, creative, and just plain wonderful--those are my Readers. I love them to death.

The most difficult thing with this series in particular is twofold: it's the sense (common among writers, I guess) that I haven't been serving the story well enough, that I could have done it better. The other part of my frustration is the fact that Dru is not me, she was raised in a very different way than I was, and sometimes people get confused over that. Dru's actions and views are not mine. She is a character, she is not me.
 
8- Is there a tentative title for the fifth and last book in the series?

Yes! The fifth and final book will be titled Reckoning, and I am currently deep in revisions for it. It's a rocketsled ride of a book.
 
JealousyLSC9- When we talked a few months ago, you said, and I quote "I do have plans for another YA series. Big plans, that involve a telekinetic with a smart mouth and a rage problem. It's going to be awesome." Anything you can reveal about this project just yet?

Nothing just yet! I wish there was something more definite to report. If things go the way I hope, I'll be able to work on the series about the telekinetic; if not, there are other characters clamoring for my attention.
 
And last a question I ask all of my guests: What's your best Spring Break memory?

I think my best Spring Break was one where I was between deadlines, so I could relax, play with my children, and I had a single day of just lying on the couch and reading. That was pretty much heaven. Maybe someday I'll get to do it again.
 
Thank you so much Lilith for your time <3 It's always such a pleasure to have you around!

Thank you for having me! I always enjoy it.

  1. I've wanted to start reading this series for a while actually! I first fell in love with the covers. I won't deny that I'm a cover lover. However seeing everyone rave about Dru is really what made me put these on my radar. *fingers crossed* Maybe this will be my chance!

    Thanks Tynga and Lili!

  2. Ah. Looks like a nice departure from the usual paranormal novels I read. Would definitely be refreshing. I don't actually think I have read anything with zombies in it before. And Dru definitely sounds like a strong character. Have not started the series, but would love to!

    Great giveaway!

I'd LOVE to read them to and if I'm lucky enough to get them, I'll be sharing them with my lovely family of readers to suck them into Ms. Saintcrow's literary worlds! :)

  13. Awesome interview! I didn't know that the 5th book in the series will be the last one.*tear* Oh well...
    My favorite so far is Jealousy, hands down. I think Dru finally gets over her whining, and becomes a stronger character, one I'd like to hang out with in real life. In fact, I liked everything better about this book... The action, the characters relationship development... Christophe...*swoon*

    Thanks for the giveaway and for making it International!:)

    P.S. I love the cover of Defiance, it's my favorite so far!<3

  67. I love Lilith's romances (Watchers, Society, Demon's Librarian (that was my first!)), but find her pure stuff (Dante and Jill) too much (too grim, too much breaking of characters). I think her YA stuff should be about my speed, so I'd love to read Strange Angels.

  68. I'd like to read these because I want to start trying some YA, and since I've read all of her other books (Dante, Jill), I figure I should start with an author I know I already enjoy.

  86. I bought the first two together and didn't actually read them for a while but when I did, wow. They were awesome, I love Strange Angels, it is the first and best. The characters were introduced and it was an excellent read, the rest didn't disappoint but I love 'Strange Angels', my favorite YA, paranormal series. Upset that there is only one book left

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love all three books. The first one was such a new approach for a paranormal YA book. It has a dark, edgy feel that I couldn't get enough of while reading it. I still find myself telling other people to check out this series. By far, one of my favorite series. Dru would kick Bellas butt up and down the street. I love it.

  92. I have really wanted to start this series for quite some time. I love all of Lilith St. Crow's other books. I am a huge fan of the Jill Kismet novels and the Dante Valentine novels. I would love to see if she is as good a YA writer. Thanks for your time.

  93. I have to admit, I am horrible at reading this series. I've tried to read Strange Angels twice now and always just stop. It's a good series but something always stops me. I hope that, if I don't win this, I will buy the books and be more motivated to finish it XD

    Thanks for the giveaway! =D

  98. I adore these books and i'd love to win them.

    The best book in the series is Jealosy and one word, one reason why--Chrsitope!!!

    SPOILER ALER

    The way be protects Dru with his own body at the end is so swoon worthy and it honestly made me say, "Awwwww,".

  99. Hi there,

    Great Interview :)

    I have just finished reading this series to date and can't wait for Defiance. I borrowed from a friend and got totally swept up in Dru and Graves story. I love Christophe and can't wait to find out more about him. What a wonderful tale of betrayal, determination on Sergej's behalf and Graves unconditonal loyalty. Christophe has my Team T-shirt, there's just something about him, but with the way Lili is writing Graves, I may just have to swap. I loved the great lines Lili gave Graves. I have some fave scenes in these books that I like to imagine in a movie. Very cool!!! I understand there are 5 books in this series and I just can't wait to read more:D

  109. I absoulutely LOVEEEEE this series, the way it takes your breathe away when you read it, and how every chapter has a surprise you weren't expecting. I have read Strange Angels, Betrayals, and Jealously, and am DYINGGG ! for Defiance. Although I dont have anything signed by Lili, I'm pretty sure I would pass out if i even touched something she had. (Which is pretty embarrassing to say the least.) I started reading Strange Angels last year, because the title sang to me... well more like yelled at me, "READ ME, OR I'LL KICK YOUR ASS!" I wasn't hesitant to reply. Ever since then I've been hooked like Spongebob to Patrick. Between Raffles, or auctions ive never won anything in my whole exsistence, so needless to say im not expecting much. But, to have a way where I can share my upmost respect for a writer, that I can actually relate to is already breath taking. Yours In Eternity ,

  128. I have to admit that it took awhile to pick my favorite book in the strange angel series but after some serious thought I have decide that strange angel book one is definently my favorite!!! For me when you are just starting to read a book series book one has to be outstanding to keep the reader untested and wanting more!!! With that being said strange angel is exactly that kind of book!!! From page one it wraps you in and you don't want to put it down!!! From the drama, adventure, and thrill that's keeps you holding your breathe it justt doesn't stop!!! Lili introduces us to dru and she has had her whole word upside down and doesn't know what to do!!! But she keeps her cool even when her world goe further down the drain!!! I love the characters and love how eachbook brings something new to the table and I cannot wait for the newest one to come out!!! Stance angel is for me the best one in the series because although it is setting the scene for the rest of the books it just drags you in with dru, graves, and Christophe!!! And although I totally love love graves I am totally team Christophe!!! Thanks Lili!!! :)

  131. My favourite is the first one, because I absolutely love Graves and especially when he was human. I loved his and Dru's getting to know each other and who he was so brave and willing to go along with what happened even when he didn't understand or have any magical means of protecting himself.

  143. I first saw Strange Angels in the bookstore and started reading it there. I was only several pages into it before I walked back to the shelf and pulled out the next two books and purchased them as well.

    For the past decade, I have just read books and set them aside, never to be read again, but this series is propulsive, grabbed my attention, and left me waiting impatiently for more!

  146. My favorite book is the first in the Strange Angels series. Why do I like it? I love paranormal girl kicks a**, but what really set this book apart is Drew's relationship with her father. He's so present in her mind, still undead in a way. For some strange reason, I find that unusual and compelling.

  160. My favorite book out of the series is the first one Strange Angels. Although I haven't read the 3rd which is why I really want this book. I really like the first because you get to know about Dru. I started reading this series because it reminded me of a female version of my favorite show "Supernatural". I think Dru could definitely kick it with Sam and Dean :)
