Anyway, I guess I like Kalil, but he drives me a bit nuts. Sorry, but I said it. I believe that all people are equal and have tried hard to instill this in our society. Once that happens, I can move on and focus on myself. Thank you for visiting us today, Miranda.
It was so interesting getting to know you! We have author Rebecca Hefner on the stage today. Hello, Rebecca!
So, we just got to talk to a female character from your story, Miranda. Quite an interesting character. Can you tell us about her? Her ability to see the bigger picture, even through the hatred. Her ability to love, even when others have a hard time loving her back. She was born with a sense of inner-belief and confidence, and I know it will aid her in saving her people. She loves heavy metal and has a great, snarky sense of humor. Her strength is admirable and we all can see a bit of ourselves in her faults. Now that we have a real taste of Miranda, here are a few questions for you as well as the author.
So, ending the hatred seemed on point! Then, I begin to write. Did you come across any specific challenges in writing The End of Hatred or publishing it? What would you do differently the next time? I probably have a much different path than many others. I was a successful medical device sales rep in Corporate America for twelve years. I only left recently to pursue writing full-time.
I also self-published because I wanted to retain creative control of my stories. With that being said, I hired an amazing editor at NY Book Editors and, if any author is considering self-publishing, it is imperative they hire a professional editor. There are many advantages to self-publishing and to traditional publishing, and every author has to figure out which one will work best for them.
Well, it was a such a pleasure having you here on the I Love Romance Blog! And how apropos is that, considering what a great story The End of Hatred appears to be. Readers, you will just have to pick up a copy of this paranormal romance by Rebecca Hefner, a very talented author! As their journey progresses, both begin to understand that they are aligned in their hatred of Crimeous, leader of the Deamons, as well as their hope for peace between the Slayers and Vampyres. Determined to fight their growing attraction, they forge a tentative truce.
But old wounds run deep and trust is scarce. Their faith in each other must remain strong or all will be lost…. Latimus pulled up to the barrier that surrounded the compound. As the three brothers exited the black Hummer, he addressed Sathan. Sathan nodded and walked to the wall.
The stones were cool against his palm under the dark sky and silver moonlight. The force-field that Etherya had implemented around the wall vibrated against his hand. Pushing against the rocks, they swung open and he walked through. About twenty feet away he saw a black SUV, the headlights bright. He walked slowly toward the car.
The woman walked forward and he studied her in what little light he had. Silky, raven-black hair fell straight to her shoulders. Camouflage pants were tucked over black army boots and she wore a black tank top. Approaching him, he noticed how small she was. Probably about a foot shorter than his six-foot, eight-inch frame. She stopped about two feet in front of him and lifted her chin, training her gaze on his.
He felt a sharp clenching sensation in his solar plexus when he saw her irises. Like wet leaves that glistened on the tree after a rainy day, they were the deepest green he had ever seen. She nodded and looked down at the grass for a moment. He wondered if she was more nervous than she appeared. I wish to use her to ask you to help me. We are locked in a stalemate that neither side seems to be able to win. I have come to the conclusion that we need to change our tactics. She inhaled a deep breath before continuing. I wish to form a temporary truce with you so that I can accomplish something of great importance.
Once I have it, I will use it to kill Crimeous and I will return your sister to you. She washed up on the shore of our riverbank. I actually employed our doctor in nursing her back to health. What a patronizing, cocky little bitch, Sathan thought. Although he had to admire how she stood her ground against him. He tested her will by taking a step forward, closing the distance between them. She stood firm, tilting her chin up even more to hold his gaze, and reluctant admiration for her courage coursed through him.
Now give me my sister. A sharp pain stabbed in his chest and he gasped. Lowering his gaze to the left side of his chest, he realized that the woman had stabbed him with some sort of contraption. But if I pull the trigger it will deploy eight tiny bullets right into your black fucking heart. Pain coursed through him, as well as a healthy dose of anger. And yet, as he looked down on this tiny she-devil of a woman, he felt a jolt of respect. She had gotten the upper hand on him. Bracing himself, he pushed his chest further into the blade. An intense pleasure ran through him when her eyes widened in surprise.
Tiny nostrils flared as she struggled to compose herself. Moments stretched by in silence as they stood locked in a dance of wills. Stepping back, she pulled the blade from his chest but kept the weapon aimed at his heart; her finger on the trigger. Not from the princess of the people who were his sworn enemy.
He lifted his hand to put pressure on his bleeding wound. It will lead to more war if you wish to use it to kill Crimeous. If you help me release the Blade, I promise I will return your sister to Astaria unharmed. He realized he believed her. Although she was a Slayer and had just stabbed him in the chest, she betrayed a firm genuineness.
The raids we hold against your people? Surely you cannot ask me to journey with you to the Cave, knowing my army will attack your people in another fortnight. Her face contorted into a withering scowl. How terrible of me to deny you the sport of hunting and killing my people. Choosing not to answer her, he continued. Ruler to ruler, what would you have me do? He will bank it for you daily and deliver it to this spot while we travel to the Cave. I mean, ruler to ruler, right? Snarky little minx, this one was. For all I know, you could have your guards murder her as soon as we leave on our journey.
Ever so slowly she lowered the weapon to her side. I am trusting you not to harm me until I have the Blade in my possession. And just like that, Sathan thought, the world had gone insane. The Slayer princess was standing in front of him, asking for a truce so that they could work together to rescue the centuries-old blade that her grandfather used to kill his parents.
Fucking insane. But what was even more insane was that he was considering it. After all, he had become frustrated with the current state of events as well. This cycle of endless war and destruction had them on a constant loop with no end in sight. What if he could actually work with the princess to change the course of history? Studying her, he narrowed his eyes. If we are going to move forward with this, I would ask that you turn my sister over to me and trust that I will keep my word. How am I supposed to trust you if you do not trust me in return?
All you men think that we women just sit around waiting for you to let us live our lives. Your sister is strong and has already threatened to kill me about a hundred times. His heart warmed at the thought of Arderin putting up such a brave fight against her captor. I will meet you back here then. Self-healing abilities really were amazing. I need to discuss with my brothers, who are my closest advisors. With one last look at the impertinent little princess, he turned and exited through the wall.
Of that, he was sure. Quirky twists. Unexpected developments with surprisingly believable characters. I await many more!!! Eubanks , Amazon. Great love stories, battles. The history of all three immortal races, especially between the Vampyres and Slayers is very unique. I loved this book. The story had me on the edge of my seat the whole read.
