Interview & #Giveaway with Jennifer Malone Wright, author of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter Series!


Holly: Hi Jennifer! :) Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Jennifer Malone: Hi! *waves* I am an author, but first and foremost I am the mother of five children ages 16, 10, 8, 4 and 2. I’ve been married to a great man for almost 12 years now and we live in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho. I love living here most of the time, except the summer when it’s a snow bound hell.

Holly: Your life is an action/suspense novel; your stuck on a ship and it’s about to blow. If it was just you, you would jump overboard and get away fast, but there are a few people that were being held captive on the ship too. What do you do?

Jennifer Malone: Oh, I would totally have to save the people that were being held captive. I could never just leave them. I would free them and we would have to escape together. Hopefully we could find dingy boat that hadn’t been used yet and get away in that, if not I guess we would have to wait in the water until the ship blew and use pieces of wood to float on.

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about your book, The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter?

Jennifer Malone: Of course, The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter is a short story series, but I have compiled all the parts into a book and its about
72,000 words which is about the same as a full length novel. So yay! Its all in one book called “The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter: The Complete Collection.”

It’s about a teenage girl who witnesses her mother being killed by vampires. She is almost taken but is suddenly saved by a bunch of vampire hunters. They take her to their community where she discovers the family she has never known and her heritage, that she is a vampire hunter as well, it’s in her bloodline which descends from angels and demi-gods.

Holly: Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?

Jennifer Malone: For this particular book, The Vampire Hunter’s daughter, it was the characters. I was working on a back story for a character in another story I was writing and that is how I came up with Chloe. Normally though, it’s the plot that I think of first.

Holly: Are you working on anything at the moment?

Jennifer Malone: Right now, I’m working on a few things. I’m working on the continuation of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter in a series called The Arcadia Falls Chronicles. I am also working on the second novel in The Birth of Jaiden series, as well as a couple of shorter things. So, we should have something coming out fairly soon for you.

Holly: Are you reading anything interesting at the moment? If so, what is it?

Jennifer Malone: I’ve just started The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I know I should have already read this, but I’m excited to read it because I’ve heard good things about it.

Holly: Do you think you may ever go into another genre?

Jennifer Malone: Actually, I think about this all the time, there are several romance stories up my sleeve, but they would still be paranormal just now YA. I also have some childrens fairy tale type stuff that I wanted to work on.

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Jennifer Malone: I always like to tell my readers, first off, thank you!! And  second, that you can always accomplish your dreams. So, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do what you want to do. With hard work and determination, it’s always possible.

Holly: Is this the first novel you ever wrote or just the first published?

Jennifer Malone: Neither, this is the second I’ve written and published. My first novel is called The Birth of Jaiden, it’s a really great story about a child who is the fate of humanity. It has vampires, angels, fallen angels, witches and so much more!

Random Quickies!

June 2012

This special edition of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter contains parts I-VI, the complete collection. Fourteen-year-old Chloe witnesses her mother’s murder at the hands of a vampire. Before the vampire can kidnap her, there is an unexpected rescue by a group of vampire hunters.

Overwhelmed by the feeling of safety, Chloe passes out and they whisk her away to their small community. When Chloe wakes, she comes face to face with the only other living relative, besides her mother, whom she has ever met: her grandfather. Chloe’s mother kept her hidden from the family; now, Chloe tries to unveil the family secrets.

Through her grandfather, she learns her mother was a vampire hunter. In fact, her entire family is descended from the powerful bloodlines of vampire hunters. Chloe agrees to join the family she has never known for one reason only: Chloe vows to kill the vampire responsible for her mother’s murder. With vengeance in her soul, Chloe is even more determined to follow through on her vow when she discovers the true identity of her enemy and how he is connected to her.

Experience the world of vampire hunter’s, vampires and mythology with Chloe in this exciting series.

Excerpt:

I took the first book off the stack and examined the cover. It was titled Vampires throughout History. The cover was leather and so old it was stiff and cracked in spots. The pages showed signs of age too, yellowing and stiff to the touch. There was no table of contents, so it looked like I was going to have to scan the entire book for what I was wanting. I flipped the pages carefully, so as not to tear any of them.

After an hour of scanning and about half way through the book, I found something referring to vampire children.
~~~
Although extremely rare, the natural-born offspring of vampires exist throughout the world. These rare beings are called the dhampir. Dhampir are usually the product of a vampire and mortal. The most common of these unions is a male vampire impregnating a mortal woman. Vampires, both male and female, are seductive in nature and some mortals came willingly to these unions. However, the majority of dhampir born were produced through an act of rape.

Solitary by nature, it is uncommon for a vampire to settle with any one mate for long. The children of vampires, the dhampir, more often than not exhibit all the characteristics of their vampire parent. The strength, speed and agility are the usual hereditary traits that the children develop. They are not always born with these traits but develop them as they grow into adulthood.

The dhampir are day walkers. Some of these children are sensitive to the sunlight but will not perish in the direct rays. Most have no sensitivity at all. Drinking the fresh blood of mortals is also not usually required of the dhampir; however, some have a liking for it. Very few actually need it to survive.
Most dhampir are rejected by the vampire species because of their mortality and weaknesses. Mortals often reject the dhampir, as well, due to their vampirism, so they frequently remain outcast.

Dhampir are known for becoming vampire killers. Their closeness to the vampires and their vampire characteristics make them powerful vampire hunters. The unique ability to track and kill vampires is specific to only the dhampir and the mythological race of vampire hunters.

Historically, dhampir became vampire hunters as a trade. Towns and villages became plagued by vampires who were terrorizing their homes and killing their people. The dhampir accepted contracts in exchange for monetary payment and used their likeness to their vampire counterparts to exterminate the vampires.
~~~
Holy crap, that was a lot to process. The more I read the passages, the more I understood that my being a hunter was more than my heritage; it was my history and my future. Everything about my bloodlines had hunters involved.

Part I of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter is FREE and the author would appreciate it if this was included in the tour spots.  You can find it FREE at the links below.
