FAQs

Passion UnleashedQ:Is Bound By Night (and the other books in the MoonBound Vampires series) related to, or set in, the Demonica world?

Larissa’s Answer:

No. The two series are in no way related and are published by different publishers. The MoonBound Clan Vampire series is set in an alternate human reality where vampires are slaves to humans.


Q: Is Sin Undone the last Demonica book?

Larissa’s Answer:

No. The Lords of Deliverance series is a continuation of the Demonica series. As a spinoff, it does have new characters, but Demonica characters play large roles, and you’ll see them a lot. You’ll learn about Gem and Kynan’s baby, Tayla’s pregnancy, etc. Reaver, especially, is a big player, and his book will hit the shelves in December 2013. It will tie the Demonica series and LOD series together, and trust me, his book relies heavily on the events in the Lords of Deliverance series, so I strongly urge you to read them before you read Reaver. For even more info and updates on the Demonica characters, check the Demonica: Overkill page on my website!


Q:Is Rogue Rider the last Lords of Deliverance book/Will Reaver get his own book?

Larissa’s Answer:

In the very back of Rogue Rider, after the excerpt of Eternal Rider, there’s a hint of what’s to come. The next book, which will be under the Demonica designation BUT is also an LOD book, will be Reaver’s story. REAVER is scheduled to release in December 2013.


Q:I hear rumors of a new series. Are they true?

Larissa’s Answer:

Yes! Coming in Fall 2013, Pocket Books will be publishing the first in a new vampire series, which is completely unrelated to Demonica/LOD. The first book is TENTATIVELY titled Bound By Night, but that title will change. I’ll post more information as I have it.


Q:Will Gem and Kynan get their own book?

Larissa’s Answer:

Short answer: No. Long answer: When I first came up with the Demonica concept, it sold as a three book series. Although I planned for more, I couldn’t be sure that the books would do well, so I had to make sure I had all major plotlines wrapped up by book 3. So Gem and Kynan were always subplot characters. However, their story plays out over the course of the first five Demonica books and through the four Lords of Deliverance books. In a way, they actually have more page time and story time than characters who have their own books. So while Gem and Ky won’t have their own book, their stories are full and complete.


Q:Why haven’t your books been made into movies or a TV series?

Larissa’s Answer:

Unfortunately, I have no control over that, or it would have happened by now! :) . See, in order for the books to be made into films, the rights have to be bought by someone in Hollywood. Which means they need to be interested. I haven’t had any interest, sadly, and I definitely don’t have the millions required to make it myself. I keep my fingers crossed, though!


Q: Is Larissa Ione your real name?

Larissa’s Answer:

Yes. “Ione” is my legal middle name, passed down through generations of women on my mom’s side of the family.


Q: If you didn’t write, what would you do?

Larissa’s Answer:

I can’t not write. I’ve been writing since I could hold a crayon. I wrote my first novel when I was twelve. But if you’re asking if there are other careers in which I’m interested, the answer would be yes. I love medicine (and, in fact, became an EMT,) weather (have worked meteorology for 13 years,) and animals (professional dog trainer for several years.) If I couldn’t be a writer, I’d want to be a doctor, a vet, a meteorologist, an archaeologist, and an astronomer. But I’d still write.


Q: Where can I buy your books?

Larissa’s Answer:

All of my books, including my Sydney Croft titles, can be found in major bookstores and at online retailers such as Amazon.com.


Desire UnchainedQ: Where do you get your ideas for the sex scenes you write? *wink, wink*

Larissa’s Answer:

Er, same place Stephen King gets his ideas for horror scenes! My imagination, the news, movies, the real world around me! My sex scenes are no more a reflection of my life than are the bank-robbing scenes in another author’s thriller.


Q: How many books did you write before you were published?

Larissa’s Answer:

Five full-length novels. And a million partials!


Q: What do you think of fanfic?

Larissa’s Answer:

I find it to be very flattering. I love it. I say, have fun. *g*


Pleasure UnboundQ: Who is your agent?

Larissa’s Answer:

Kim Whalen of the Trident Media Group.


Q: What do you do in your spare time?

Larissa’s Answer:

Spare time?


Q: Where do you write?

Larissa’s Answer:

I’m usually set up in my downstairs office, but I have a laptop and sometimes work on it upstairs in order to be around my family.


Taming the FireQ: Is it hard to write with a partner?

Larissa’s Answer:

It can be, if you don’t have the right partner. You MUST be equally dedicated to the work, and be writing at similar skill levels. Stephanie Tyler (my Bantam writing partner) and I will be posting some articles about this on our Sydney Croft website, so stay tuned!


Q: What else have you written?

Larissa’s Answer:

I’ve written magazine articles and several screenplays, the latter of which I became interested in after I worked on the set of James Michener’s TEXAS.


Seduced by the StormQ: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Larissa’s Answer:

Britain. It has always felt like home to me.


Q: Where and when were you born?

Larissa’s Answer:

I’m a proud Leo (is there any other kind?) and was born in a teeny farming community in Oregon.
