Eight years ago, slayer Tuck Houston lost two of her closest friends to a Damned vampire named Josef Dragos—a beast who traded the sun for darkness and blood. She’s been hunting him since the day she walked into the carnage he created. But Josef has hidden himself well in the underground, from both slayers and other vampires.

When slayers around the globe start disappearing in a familiar pattern—Josef’s pattern—she’s put on the hunt. And despite the painful memories and very real threat to her future that come with tracking him down, Tuck is certain of one thing: she is going to make Josef  Dragos wish he’d never been born.

Please welcome The Damned author October Weeks to Diane’s Book Blog. 

Thank you for having me on your blog, Diane!

How long did it take you to write The Damned?

The Damned took two months to complete, then a little over six years to get to where it is today. Originally, there were two POVs. After several rounds of revisions and a beta read-through, I changed the book to one POV. I loved the story too much to give up on it J

If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?

My main character, Tuck Houston!

Who or what inspired you to be a writer?

I love to read, and that love of reading led to my love of writing. Without that voracious love of books, I don’t think I’d be a writer.

What books have most influenced your life?

Salem’s Lot by Stephen King led to my love of vampires and the paranormal.
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien led to my love of fantasy.

I reread both at least twice a year.

How do you overcome writer’s block?

Writer’s block only happens to me if I’ve steered the book in the wrong direction. The only way to get the words to flow again are to go back to the beginning of the book and read through until I hit the point that things went wrong.

What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks? 

I prefer paperback. While I don’t mind hardcover or ebooks, there’s just something about the feel of a paperback in my hands that I love.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thank you for giving Tuck a chance! I’ve waited a long time for this book to be published, and I hope you love reading it as much as I loved writing it J
