Interview with a Vampire! Ok, I Mean Tracey Sinclair-Author of A Vampire Walks Into A Bar (FREE Dec 1-3) & Dark Dates

Authors Blog | Goodreads| Twitter|

The hunter just wanted to be left alone - one last drink before leaving London forever. Then the vampire Laclos walked into the bar, and suddenly his night wasn't looking so quiet after all...
There's a new hunter in the city and he'd targeting Dark Dates - the vampire/human dating agency run by Cassandra Bick, who also happens to be the woman that both Cain and Laclos love. These two fierce rivals must work together to stop him before he drags London’s vampires into the spotlight and destroys Cassandra’s life – that’s if they don’t kill each other first.
Explore a darker side of London with this exciting short story from author, Tracey Sinclair. The first novel in "The Cassandra Bick Chronicles", "Dark Dates" is out now

Dark Dates is Book 1 (see interview below with Author!)
All Cassandra Bick wants is to be left to get on with doing her job. But when you’re a Sensitive whose business is running a dating agency for vampires, life is never going to be straightforward – especially when there’s a supernatural war brewing in London, a sexy new bloodsucker in town and your mysterious, homicidal and vampire hating ex-lover chooses this moment to reappear in your life…
Witty, sharp and entertaining, Dark Dates is a heady mix of vampires, witches and werewolves – with the occasional angel thrown in – and introduces Cassandra Bick, a likeable heroine destined to join the ranks of fantasy’s feistiest females.

Interview with Author Tracey Sinclair!

Tell us a little about the new story…
It’s a (longish) short story set just after Dark Dates, and featuring the two male leads in that book – the hunter Cain, and the vampire Laclos. Although they are naturally enemies, they have to work together when the woman they both care for, Cassandra, is threatened by a rogue hunter who arrives in London.

How did it come about?
When I finished Dark Dates I started working on the sequel straight away, but I won’t be putting it out till next year. I really enjoy it when my favourite authors publish digital short stories – I’ve been reading a lot by Jim Butcher, Kelley Armstrong and Tess Gerritsen lately – so I thought that might be fun. And as I couldn’t have it narrated by Cass without spoiling the timeline of the main books, so it gave me a chance to look at the characters from a different angle, and really have fun with their relationship independent of how they relate to her.

Do you have to have read Dark Dates to enjoy it?
I hope not – I hope that anyone who likes vampires will like it, but obviously it’s a little spoilery, and you’ll get far more out of it if you’ve read the book. But hopefully it’s also a fun standalone read.

Will there be any more stories in the series?
I’m hoping to do a Christmas story on my blog, Body of a Geek Goddess, in the next few weeks, so if you enjoy this do pop by…

Describe the book in one sentence.
A sexy, snarky, pop culture-filled romp with two smoking hot leads. What more could you want?
