Georgia Cates presents paranormal romance Blood of Anteros
Let’s give a big GT welcome to Georgia Cates, author of Blood of Anteros!
I am a life long Mississippian. I married my college sweetheart, Jeff, 12 years ago and we have two beautiful daughters. I have spent the last 13 years working as a labor and delivery nurse and you are wondering how one goes from a nurse to an author?
Many authors know they want to be writers from the time they are young children, but that was not the case for me. I was a reader before I was a writer and I found myself searching for this book that didn’t exist, so I decided to write it. I am an avid lover of paranormal romance, but I don’t want to read about teenagers and their drama, so I wrote an adult vampire romance without the erotica factor. I know there are readers like me out there looking for this book and now it exists. I write because I’m in love with the stories and characters in my mind and I think others will be also.
|When I made the decision to write this book I had dreamed about for almost two years, I knew where this story would occur. My setting is coastal Mississippi, and although there were endless changes to this story, the setting was never one of them. Some of my earliest memories are traveling to visit an aunt in Pascagoula, Mississippi and I developed a strange fascination with a historical home on the beach and this is where my characters live. The first thing I do when I arrive in Pascagoula is make my routine drive down the Beach Boulevard, but it isn’t the beach I long to see; it’s this house.
I am currently working on Book 2 of The Vampire Agápe Series, which is untitled. I can’t bring myself to choose a title until it is completed because I feel like I would be locked in a story I couldn’t adapt and I don’t want to limit my choices. Of course, Book 2 is a continuation of Curry and Chansey’s agápe love. The obstacles introduced in this story bring about danger and conflict that induce some unthinkable decisions to be made. Hatable and lovable new characters are being introduced, igniting some unwelcome emotions by Curry, Chansey and Solomon.
