Blog Tour: "Last Vamp Standing" by Kristin Miller (Interview/Giveaway)

Welcome to our Blog Tour stop with Kristin Miller and her book "Last Vamp Standing" brought to you by LIT Connect Events.  


1.     Tell us 5 things about yourself that readers may not know.

I go to the gym to offset my chocolate addiction. I’ve traveled to almost every state in the country. I live on a farm. I collect coffee mugs from every writing conference I attend. I don’t (see: can’t) watch horror movies.

2.     What was your favorite chapter (or part) in Last Vampire Standing and Why?

I love the final battle scene. I enjoy writing action scenes anyway, but this one was special because it was the culmination of all three books in the Vampires of Crimson Bay series.

3.     What was the hardest scene to write in Last Vampire Standing and Why?

The entire book was difficult to write. Tying together all the strings, doing justice to overarching story lines and carry-over characters while still focusing on the steamy relationship of the hero and heroine…every bit of it was a challenge. But you know what they say—if writing a book was easy, everyone would do it!

4.     Do you work with an outline when you first come up with a book or do you just start writing? 

I work with a loose outline. I see the first chapter first, a few turning points, and the climax. Everything else develops as I go.

5.     Do you ever experience writer's block? 

There are days when I can’t write or the words are sluggish. I either push through for a few days (and then end up deleting everything I wrote because it’s usually sludge) or stop and do something different. I’ll go to the gym or take a mini-vacation to the beach or mountains. I haven’t had writer’s block that’s lasted longer than a few days. I try to nip it before it lingers.

6.     What do you do when you’re are not writing (hobbies..etc.)?

I love watching movies, whether at home or the theatre. (I watched Bourne Legacy last night and LOVED it!) I enjoy golfing and playing volleyball (sand or grass) in Summer and snowboarding in Winter.

7.     Fun question:  If you could have dinner with a famous person (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

Thomas Andrews. He was the mastermind behind the building of the Titanic and I’ve got an addiction to researching Titanic info.

8.     Fun question:  You are deserted on an island, what three things must you have to survive? 

Coffee. My Husband. The “How to Survive on a Deserted Island for Dummies” book.


9.     What projects are up next for you? 

I’m currently writing two erotic paranormal romance novellas to continue my Isle of Feralon series with Harlequin Cravings. The novellas take place on an enchanted isle where dragons rule the skies, werewolves rule the land, and merfolk rule the sea. They’ll release sometime next year. I’m also working on a three book paranormal romance/urban fantasy series.

Kristin Miller has had a passion for language and literature
her whole life. Born and raised in Small Town USA, she often made up stories about faraway places and edge-of-your-seat adventures.

After graduating from Humboldt State University with a degree in psychology, Kristin realized there is no scarier place than the warped human psyche. Wanting to combine her love of writing with her desire to paint twisted villains, Kristin wound up in the unlikeliest of places—the class- room. She taught high school and middle school English before giving in to the desire to create her own world, where villains can be sympathetic and heroes can be devilishly good.
She is represented by Nalini Akolekar of Spencerhill Associates Ltd. and writes dark paranormal romances and toe curling romantic suspense.
