Political propaganda would have us believe vampires are our friends. Fanged teddy bears misunderstood thanks to archaic lore. Activists picket for them to be welcomed into our society.
They claim vamps don’t kill.
They preach we are safe.
They … are dead wrong.
One year ago a hive slaughtered my family and left me for dead. Found by a team of scientists with their own agenda, I was forged into an unstoppable weapon.
I possess their strength, with none of their weaknesses.
I can move among them free from their crippling hunger.
I am their greatest threat.
Armed with this arsenal, vengeance will feed my desire to penetrate the seedy underbelly of their fetishized lifestyle and expose them for the monsters they truly are.

Interview with Stacey Rourke, author of VEILED
Who is your favorite character in Veiled?
Vinx, she is a badass chick without a doubt.
How long did it take you to write the book? Did you encounter any setbacks?
Three months for the first draft, and three months to get through the editing process. No real setbacks, thankfully!
What is your writing routine?
I plot, outline, do character development … then start on the first draft that goes in a completely different direction of all the careful planning I’ve done.
Have you had other jobs besides author? If so, how how those influenced your writing?
I’ve wore a lot of hats: manicurist, sales associate, office manager, and marketing director, just to name a few. All of them have helped to guide me and shape me to market not only my books buy my brand as an author.
Do you read reviews of your books? Why or why not?
When I first release a book I read a few of the reviews to get a sense of how the book is being received, after that I stop. Reading every new review would easily becoming an obsessing for me, and that would just stop up the creative process.
If you could bring one of your characters to life, from any of your books, who would it be and why?
Probably Celeste Garrett from The Gryphon Series. She is a pure soul with a warrior spirit, not to mention her snarky humor is loads of fun. The world could use more people like her.
If you woke up tomorrow with the knowledge and skills to do every kind of job, would you still be an author?
Absolutely, I would just have a lot more details to add to all of my character development! LOL!
A huge thanks to Stacey Rourke for taking the time to answer my questions!
