Edged Blade By J. C. Daniels ~ Interview ~ Giveaway


Edged Blade

By J. C. Daniels


Crystal: I am so excited to have the opportunity to ask J.C. Daniels a few questions. Welcome J.C.! I'm so honored to have you here today. Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today?

J.C. : I read a lot of books, I write a lot of books, I take a lot of pictures.  Longer version?  I'm thirty eight.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we've got three kids.  I've been writing since I was a kid.  I've been told I'm kind of odd.  I take it as a compliment. 

Crystal: Do you have any special routine that you follow when you are writing? 

J.C.Routine implies some sort of organization...I lack that skill.

Crystal: When you are not busy writing wonderful stories to keep us lucky readers entertained, what do you like to do? Do you have a hobby?

J.C.I love to read.  I love to take pictures.  I love to drive my family crazy.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite background noise you like to listen to while you write (TV, Music, kids playing)?

J.C.The best thing is music--and preferably nobody in the house.  Otherwise, I have a hard time focusing.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us?

He laughed and dropped down on my bed.
I frowned.
He lifted a brow. “Problem?”
“Damon’s coming over tonight.”
Now Justin grinned and laid back on the bed, linking his hands together behind his head and stretching out.
Sighing, I rubbed the back of my neck.
“Are you trying to make me hurt you?” I asked. “Because trust me, I’m frustrated enough to do you a lot of damage.”
Frustrated didn’t touch it.
My plans of inviting Damon back home after the Halloween Ball had fallen through and he’d spent the next few days dealing with some sort of clan politics. It turned out that the clan in northern Georgiaseriously had business—the kind that came with a major B that needed to be discussed with the Assembly and now that Matthew wasn’t allowed in the area, they were fumbling to come up with a plausible arrangement, because Amund wasn’t rescinding the ban. And nobody could make the millennia-old vampire rescind it.
All of it made my head spin. If I thought about it too long, I’d have a migraine. All I wanted was one night with my guy. One night.
Then, just when I was thinking I’d go join him at the Lair, I got the call from Nova.
It had taken almost a week of running leads down before I’d managed to find the woman Nova had seen in his vision and I almost hadn’t made it in time.
I hadn’t seen Damon in nearly two weeks.
I hadn’t had sex in so long, I didn’t even want to think about it.
And Justin was doing one thing guaranteed to make Damon’s brain shut down.
“You know, this is what happens when you hook up with a shifter, Kit,” Justin said, pushing up onto his elbows. His black T-shirt rode up, baring his flat belly. “The animal kicks in too easily, shuts down the brain. Now, me? If we were still together, I wouldn’t be all that worried if your bedroom smelled like another man.”
“That’s because you can’t scent another man in my bedroom, you asshole.”
He shrugged. Crossing his feet at the ankle, he said, “He knows we’re done. I just—hey!”
Justin glared at me from the floor.
I let go of his ankles and smiled.
