JK Allen took time from her release tour to answer some questions. Let’s see what she has to say.
IM:Hey, baby, come here often?
JK: Only as often as I’m allowed! The barkeep here is one of my favorite persons after all.
IM: I’ve already created a couple of cocktails for your books, Angelborn and Heavenfire, but if I were to craft a drink based on you, what elements would it have?
JK: It would have to be girlier, haha. Since my personality is a little more colorful and fruity. Think candy flavored and that’s me.
IM: Drinking, because no good story starts with a salad. Do you have any funny or embarrassing stories to share?
JK: I don’t have too many embarrassing stories because I am the mom friend of the group. So I’m always feeding my girls water and bread and holding their hair up and making sure they are happy and not crying into the toilet at the end of the night.
IM: If you and your favorite character had a drink, what would you talk about?
JK: My favorite character that isn’t one I’ve written is Hermione. I would love to talk to her about the cultural differences between our world and the wizarding world. Especially as she is muggle born and had to adapt.
IM: If you could invite your 4 favorite authors to a bar, who buys the appetizers?JK: I would buy the appetizers in all my star struckness because I would totally be fan-girling and trying to bribe them to talk to me.
IM: You’ve just been through all the events in your book. What do you drink and why?
JK: Honestly, I would want a slushie to unwind from the drama. And yes, I mix flavors on my slushies. It’s more fun that way.
IM: If you’re buying me a drink, what are we celebrating?
JK: We can literally celebrate anything! I am all about celebrating every small victory in everyone’s life. And even celebrating those days that just seem to be going perfect or celebrating those days where everything is hard but you got through it anyway. Let’s just celebrate life.
IM: You get drunk and go on a crime spree. What books do you steal?
JK: Neil Gaiman and Kurt Vonnegut books.
IM: Now that you’re drunk, tell me about your latest book.
JK: Heavenfire is the second of the Angelborn trilogy. So in Angelborn, Ginny Gracehurst realizes she is not a normal teen. She’s actually half-angel and a powerful half-demon is after her for his nefarious plans. She must keep her loved ones safe while staying out of his hands. Then Jacob makes new plans and that’s where Heavenfire comes in. Ginny and Aiden get a secret mission to try and keep Jacob from getting the power he wants to reorder the world. Follow along on this exciting adventure and see what Ginny gets up to. Here’s the blurb:
A divine sword, magic tomes, and uncontrolled power. Can 16-year-old Ginny Gracehurst keep them from an obsessed half-demon?
After retrieving the only thing that could set Jacob’s demon father free, half-angel Ginny has a new mission. She and Aiden are charged with collecting the Eternal Tomes, which teach how to use sigils in the Angelic Tongue.
They are in a race against Jacob and his minions, who can travel anywhere in a matter of seconds. Allowing demonkind to learn those sigils would spell disaster for them all. In order to get what he wants, Jacob needs one more thing besides the Tomes—Ginny herself.
IM: Do you have plans for another? If so, will it be a sequel, or something new?
JK: Yes, book three to finish off this trilogy releases in October. And I am currently plotting a new series in the same Angelborn world, but several generations later. Been loving getting to know these new characters and discover the consequences of what happened in the first series.
IM: Thank you answering my questions and telling us about Heavenfire. Where can readers find you on the internet?
JK: Here’s where you can find me online:
And of course, through my publisher, Three Furies Press
