You may or may not be aware of all the online chatter lately regarding an Interview with a Vampire remake. Anne’s son, Christopher is penning the script. Such chatter inevitably leads to casting conversations, and at times, debates. Josh Boone, writer/director, made his opinion on the matter of Lestat quite clear on Twiiter.
I completely agree with Mr. Boone!! The possibility of seeing Jared as Lestat is almost too exciting for my brain to contemplate. And it is perfect casting. After all, Jared stopped aging decades ago! Just hit up Google for proof if you don’t believe me.
Anyway, thinking about Lestat got me thinking about Louis. I personally loved Brad Pitt as Louis in the original movie starring Tom Cruise so it took me awhile to mentally cast someone new. HOWEVER, inspiration struck. BEN BARNES. Did you see him as Dorian Gray? If not, do yourself a favor. The entire time I was watching the movie I kept thinking, “this kid should play a vampire!” So why not play Louis?
Seraphina Scala has just confessed she’s never had an orgasm and now her friend has the perfect solution; a night spent at Captive Fantasy, a club that guarantees to fulfill every deep, dark, secret desire. Sera would rather admit she’s a vampire than join her friend at such a place, but she doesn’t, and she finds herself surrounded by ravenous women and drop-dead gorgeous men. One in particular steals her attention…
Valentino was literally created to make fantasies come true. He’s used to the eager women who flood into Captive Fantasy every night to take what he offers, but when he meets the shy Sera, he knows he has his work cut out for him. Something about her strikes a chord deep inside, and he soon realizes he wants more than just a breathy thank you for a “job” well done.
Valentino awakens a side of Sera she’s kept locked away for nearly three centuries, and now she must confront her past, her present and her future. Doing so won’t be so bad with Valentino by her side, but will he want her once he realizes what she really is? Or will his secret be the one thing they cannot overcome?
Whew! It’s so hard to believe that a week ago Descent Into Darkness was released! For those of you who have already read it, thank you. For anyone who hasn’t and would like to, you can find purchase links on my website.
If you have time and inclination, please think about leaving a review. Not for my benefit, though I do enjoy knowing your thoughts, but mostly for those contemplating whether or not they would enjoy Descent Into Darkness. Goodreads and Amazon are good places to leave a review. Here are the links:
Aside from releasing Descent, I’ve been hard at work on the follow-up story, Chloe’s Surrender. In it, we catch up with Victor nearly 100 yrs after Descent Into Darkness. Needless to say, his life has gone through some changes. I’m enjoying creating the story and I hope, once it’s out there, you enjoy it too. In addition, I’m also mentally plotting a book to follow Chloe’s Surrender. Tentatively titled, Dark Embrace. I think that’s all I will say about that for now 😉
