Today we have Tara Fox Hall, Author of the Paranormal Fantasy “Immortal Reckoning” .
Thank you Tara for participating in our interview.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how long you have been writing.
I have been writing short stories and flash fiction most of my life, but only began publishing novels in 2012. I have worked at a metal fabrication shop as a safety manager for the last 11 years, I chainsaw all my family’s firewood (with help from my husband and a few friends), I sew and donate hundreds of catbeds and mats to rescue groups and shelters each year, and I am a yarn hoarder, as I love to latchhook. If you have any extra rug yarn you want to donate, please send it to my PO box!
Please tell me about your book “Immortal Reckoning” and what gave you the idea for this one.
When I wrote my Promise Me Series, I included Immortal Confessions, which gave the background of Devlin Dalcon, the main villain of the series. But I never included a similar background story for Danial, Devlin’s brother, the one protagonist/alpha male throughout the book. Danial never willingly speaks of his past; the little that is mentioned indicates intense suffering. I wanted to know why Danial was the way he was, as well as give longtime readers some well-deserved answers. Reading this book as a prequel to the series sheds an entirely new light on Danial’s actions in Promise Me.
What sort of research did you do to write this book?
I researched the years 1600-1930 online, looking at major events and culture, etc., to come up with a believable past for Danial which made him the vampire we meet in Promise Me: a handsome and charming but somewhat jaded workaholic, emotionally reserved and ruthless, yet prime to fall in love again. I also combed through ALL the Promise Me Series books and ALL the Lash series books, making lists of any event or history mentioned that Danial participated in, so that this book would fit in with the others already written like a piece of a puzzle.
What are you working on currently / next?
I began the Unhallowed Love series last year about demons; the first book is A Good Year. I’m working on the sequel. I also will self-pub a YA novel this year on Amazon called Once in a Blue Moon, and a non-fiction book about my father’s diaries called What My Father Never Told Me.
What books have you read recently?
I’ve been listening to The Wisdom of History, a series of audiobooks by The Great Courses.
What has been one of your most rewarding experiences as an author?
And finally please let our readers know where we can purchase your books.
