Gabrielle Bisset's Sons of Navarus Blog Tour (Interview/Promo/Giveaway)


Welcome to our stop on Gabrielle Bisset's Sons of Navarus Blog Tour brought to you by Book Monster Promotions.  
1. Tell us five things about yourself that we may not be able to find on your website. 

I love children, but only have two.
I write under a different name in another genre.
I own five cats (and would have more if I could fit them in my house—I can't say no to kitten eyes.).
I love the warm weather—the hotter the better!
I'm relatively short, only 5'5".

2. What does a typical writing day look for you? 

I work at my day job and home school my son in the daytime, so my typical writing day is at night. I usually write for 3-4 hours then before I go to bed.

3. Tell us a little bit about "Blood Prophecy" and why readers should check it out? 

Blood Prophecy is the 4th novel in the Sons of Navarus series and a huge turning point in the series. For the first time, Ramiel and Thane leave the monastery to search for the key to solving the Prophecy of Idolas. In addition to the Sons part of the story (which includes a love interest for Ramiel), readers will find out about the other paranormal characters who are set to make their appearance: werewolves, dragon shifters, and witches, along with daemons from the Underworld. It's a big story.

4. How did you come up with the characters names? 

I choose names because of their meanings or because of the way they sound. I've loved the name Ramiel since I read it in a book a few years ago, so when it came time to name the hardest and most violent Son, I chose the name that just spoke to me. Ramiel.

5. What kind of research did you have to do for the series? 

I research the locales I set each book in, the foods I have characters consume, and even down to the smallest detail, such as does that animal I want to include in a scene actually live in that part of the world. I know the historical backgrounds I give each Son, but I still do some research for those too, and the mythological foundations of the story are things I'm quite familiar with, but every so often I find myself in research for those too.

6. What has been the easiest and hardest scene to write in the series so far? 

The easiest scene to write in the Sons series was the first time Vasilije and Sasa got together. Damn, that scene came easy! In fact, that book seemed to flow from my pen. The hardest scene is one I can't say because it's in Blood Prophecy, but I can promise my readers that when I wrote it, I cried like a baby.

7. Who designs the covers to the Sons of Navarus series? (I already know...but some of our readers are anxious to find out who designs those sexy covers) 

The incredible Talina Perkins at Bookin It Designs is the mastermind behind the covers. And I mean mastermind. I give her the barest bones about the story, the super hot model I've found, and she creates the covers using her magic. The lady has some serious talent.

8. Fun question: If you could have dinner with one famous person, who would it be and why? 

If we're talking living and famous, it would be Stephen King. I like what he has to say about the book business. If we're talking dead famous person, it would be a tie between Alexander Hamilton and William Shakespeare. (The English undergrad and the history prof are fighting it out there.) Either one would be wonderful to meet and talk to.

9. What is up next for Gabrielle Bisset? 

As of right now, I don't know. I'm beginning a non-romance project this summer, and everything else is up in the air. Stay tuned.

10. Do you have anything specific you would like to say to your readers? 

Just that it's great to hear from them, so please feel free to email at gabriellebisset@gmail.com

Sons of Navarus Series Blurb
Eight vampire warriors descended from the gods and chosen to defend their world against the Archon takeover, each dedicated to the war they must win. But there's another side to these Sons of Navarus—one that only the women they love know. Behind the strength they need to defeat their enemies lies a passion different in each one of the Sons. Their war will take them around the world and even involve the gods themselves, but they must unlock the secrets of the Prophecy of Idolas to defeat the Archons or perish in trying for none of their kind can be safe if the Archons win this battle.

(Sons of Navarus #1)

I am everything you desire. I am vampire. 
Powerful and manipulative, Vasilije does as he pleases. A vampire beholden to no one, he takes what he desires, drinking deeply the pleasures this life has to offer. 
When one of his own is staked, Vasilije must travel to New Orleans to exact his revenge. There he meets Sasa, a beautiful woman who arouses him like no other has for centuries. Vasilije’s need for vengeance is equaled only by his passion for her, but what he finds in his revenge is just the beginning...

Summoned to defeat the Archons by the world that shunned him, Saint must face his past and Solenne, the woman he loved and lost a century ago, for only in accepting her will his body and soul finally find salvation.

Ilona can give him what his soul craves, but only if he trusts his heart. One fateful choice made out of desire puts all he cares for in danger. With a civil war and the threat of Archon hunters at every turn, this Son may lose everything if he can't find the balance between heart and mind.

Along the way, they'll find love, but death and betrayal lurk in the shadows, threatening everything dear to them. 
Descended from the gods and warriors all, each Son's loyalty will be tested. Every action has consequences, and the choices they make now seal their fates. Alliances as old as the vampire world itself are reforged, and the Sons' duty is clear. Stop the Archons. Or die trying.

Download the FREE 5 Chapter Preview below - Kobo | Amazon |  or download the epub format on Gabrielle's website (scroll down to bottom of page)
I'm a UF/PNR author and my newest releases are Blood Spirit, the third book in my new series Sons of Navarus, and the Sons short stories Longing and The Deepest Cut. For me, a book does more than just tell a story. It transports readers away from their daily lives to another place where they can be a part of something different than the common and everyday. I'm always so touched when readers tell me they felt like they were a part of the story when they read my books. 
When I'm not writing, I can be found reading romance novels but often mysteries, cookbooks, and anything dealing with ancient and medieval history and European history, in general. I also love the outdoors, so I enjoy the wonderful weather Pennsylvania has to offer. I live there with my son and a herd of pets.
Grand Prize
Autographed copies of the first three books in the series (Blood Avenged, Blood Betrayed, Blood Spirit) and SWAG (bookmarks, trading cards, cover flat, etc.) to ONE lucky winner. 

Runners-Up
THREE runners up will receive a SWAG pack
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Really enjoyed the interview, its always nice to hear what a favourite authors like and whats next for them. Enjoyed the preview chapters of Ramiels book. Cant wait to read the rest

I love the Sons of Navarus they are just totally fantastic to me. Each and every book I fall into (call it my escape from the real world). But I am very nervous about Blood Prophecy afraid that something terrible is going to happen to one of my men. God forbid cuz then I will be a raging demon. LOL If Gabrielle cried I know I am going to SOB so I have already stocked up on the kleenex. Keep up the great work Gabrielle.
