Interview with Bella Klaus, Author of Allure of the Vampire King
12 Jan 2021
What can you tell us about your new release, Allure of the Vampire King?
Allure of the Vampire King is book one of the Blood Fire Saga, a paranormal romance series where supernaturals exist and live in a magically protected city. It combines action, heat, and plot twists.
Three years ago, Mera Griffin had to flee the Supernatural World after suffering a humiliating rejection from her Vampire King fiancé.
When she finally gets over the crushing heartbreak and decides to start dating again, her ex shows up in town, claiming that her life in danger. His solution is for her to move into a safe house with him, but she doesn’t trust him or the way he lusts after her blood.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I love telling stories and have always wanted to write. Most of my inspiration comes from dreams. My mind tries to make sense of things I’ve seen during the day and often translates them into fantastic tales!
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
I love both contemporary literature and the classics, so it’s difficult to whittle the list down to five. These are the most memorable and have had the biggest impact:
Dracula – Bram Stoker
Frankenstein – Mary Shelley
The Metamorphosis – Franz Kafka
Dark Lover – JR Ward
Interview with the Vampire – Anne Rice
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
I would invite Mary Shelly and ask if she ever considered writing a story where Victor Frankenstein made a companion for his monster. That’s a story I’d love to read. Imagine waking up in a strange body with the monster claiming that he’s your mate?
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The thrill of excitement I get when the main characters meet and I’ve got to write the sparks!
What is a typical day like for you?
I’m an early riser and I like to exercise first thing in the morning. After breakfast, I read through yesterday’s words and edit so that my brain is warmed up for the afternoon. My husband works from home, so we always break for lunch at the same time. After that, I continue writing for two or three hours. The end of the work day is reserved for catching up on admin, and the evenings are for relaxation and dinner.
What scene from Allure of the Vampire King was your favorite to write?
The ending. It’s pretty crazy and unexpected.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
“Everything you can imagine is real.” Picasso.
