The Crossroads: Day 7 ft: Lucienne Diver and REVAMPED

Welcome to Day 7 (can you believe this has been going on for one week already?!?!?!)

I'm hugely excited to have Lucienne Diver here today with Revamped!
*throws confetti*

In Vamped, Gina and her minions defeated a vampire vixen, a psycho-psychic and the vampire council of Mozulla, Ohio. Gina was all ready to expose vampires to the world in all their fanged fabulosity…until the Feds arrived to sweep everything under the rug and make them an offer they couldn’t refuse.

In ReVamped, Gina and her boyfriend Bobby are sent undercover to infiltrate a New York high school where some seriously weird stuff is going down. Worse than that, Gina’s new super-secret identity is as goth-girl Geneva Belfry. No color palette to speak of. More chains than a bike rack. And don't even get her started on the shoes. At least she won’t be too worried about blood spatter when kicking the butt of her newest nemesis, who’s decided that the high school makes a perfect playground.

And know for the best part...

Book-Savvy: If you were in a dangerous situation which of your characters would be the first you'd call for help?

Lucienne Diver:
"Intellectual Puzzle: Bobby, my brainy boy with mucho mojo.
Fashion Disaster: Gina, fashionista of the fanged.
Sheer Muscle: Chickzilla, wearer of unitards and bulky-babe.
Snark (can snark be considered an important survival skill?): Ulric, my grabby goth."

Book-Savvy: Did you have any input on your cover design?

Lucienne Diver: "My publisher did such a fantastic job in the first series, Vamped, that I was sure they'd never be able to top it. They did ask for my input, which I gave, but in the end they came up with something different and better than I could ever have conceived. With the second book, Revamped, well, I think they outdid themselves. You be the judge! I can't even imagine how they're going to top that!

Book-Savvy: If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters would you choose to be stranded with?

Lucienne Diver: "Bobby, hands down. I'm such a geek-girl at heart. We'd have so much to talk about, like which Joss Whedon series rocked the hardest and which super powers we'd want if we could have any at all. Oh, plus, he's probably have all kinds of crazy knowledge on how to build shelter and what plants to eat...
On second thought, as much as Bobby can sink his fangs into me any old time, I'm not sure being stranded with a vampire on a desert island where I'm the only food source is exactly the way to go."

Is she awesome, or what! She even left some swag for one lucky commenter! *Please include your e-mail address*

  1. But if he's cute and doesn't drain you and could catch fish for your at night. There could be good thing about him. God knows you'd be safe from predators. The sun might be hard on him though.


  2. Great interview!

  3. Buried in Books...that's true about the predators. It would be really nice to be cuddled up to the thing that goes bump in the night rather than having to fear it!
