Read Along and Interview - Sabina Kane Series by Jaye Wells Plus Giveaway!

We have come to the conclusion of the Sabina Kane Read Along!

 The past few months getting to know Sabina have been great, but now its time to get to know the lady behind her - author Jaye Wells.

The hosts of this read along - myself, Jennifer from The Book Nympho, and Jenese from Readers Confession - have split Jaye's interview into three parts. Below you will find my three questions and Jaye's responses. Then head on over to the other two blogs to see their three questions and responses. And while you're at The Book Nympho, check out the discussion for Blue-Blooded Vamp, the final book in the Sabina Kane series!

Our reviews of Blue-Blooded Vamp:

Oh yeah...and ENTER TO WIN an ebook copy of Jaye Wells' next release: Meridian Six, releasing soon!

Goldilox: Did you know when you started the series how things were going to play out with Lavinia and the shift of focus onto Cain?

Jaye: I didn't, actually. Cain really started pushing himself into the mix in book three, Green-Eyed Demon. By that point, I went with it because it made sense to me because Lilith and Cain's relationship drove the world building and was still causing ripples in Sabina's world.

Goldilox: How did you choose the various locations that the series would be set in (L.A., New York, New Orleans, Italy...)?

Jaye: I have a complex relationship with Los Angeles, which influenced why I chose it as a setting for the vampires. Since one coast was dominated by them, I figured the other coast would be dominated by the mages, thus New York became the home of the mages. New Orleans was chosen for two reasons: 1) It was somewhat neutral ground and 2) It's one of my favorite cities to visit and I wanted an excuse to go. :)

Italy was a more complicated decision. First, I wanted the final book to have a grand setting. I'd been to Italy while I was writing The Mage in Black, and had a lot of first-hand experience with some of the setting I chose. I also wanted to take the gang back to the Old Country to see a little bit about how the Dark Races got along there. Plus, Italy just has so many awesome spots --catacombs, bone chapels, Oracle grottos, etc.

Goldilox: Is there a little bit of you in Sabina? Or is she totally different than you?

Jaye: All of my characters are me to some extent. However, I tell people I am most like Giguhl in public, but in my private life I'm more like Sabina. Take that however you'd like.
