D.N. Simmons "Knights of the Darkness" Blog Tour (Interview/Spotlight) + Giveaway


Welcome to our virtual tour stop of D.N. Simmons Knights of the Darkness Blog Tour brought to you by Book Monster Promotions.
1. Tell us three things about yourself that readers may not about you.

Sure, let me see.
1. I’m terribly afraid of spiders.
2. I thought Richard Gere was so hot in Pretty Woman.
3. I love horror movies, comic book heroes and Japanese animation.

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

Me sitting in front of my laptop or desktop listening to one song on repeat. There may or may not be a snack involved. LOL.

3. What inspired you to write the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles? 

I love vampires and shape-shifters. I also love writing and I wanted to create the book series I’ve always wanted to read. I wanted to create characters and relationships that you don’t normally see in this genre. I wanted to create scenarios that you don’t find in most books in this genre. I wanted to break down barriers and be as innovative in my series as I could to blaze a new trail in the paranormal/urban fantasy genre.

4. What was the easiest and hardest scene to write in the series?

I didn’t really find any difficulty at all when writing the KOTDC. Each story line just played out in my mind like a movie and I just had to type fast to keep up. lol

5. If your series was made into a movie or tv show, who would you want to portray the characters?

I think this series would make one hell of a movie or TV series. There’s so much action, sex, humor, it really is the total package. It would take some very talented actors to pull it off. Here are a few just off the top of my head. Tyler Hoeclin as Warren Jensen Ackles as John Jesse Williams as Adrian Joe Manganiello as Daniel or Ignacio

6. Do you ever suffer with writer's block and if you do how do you overcome it?

No, I’ve never suffered with writer’s block, thank goodness.

7. What are some your favorite t.v. shows to watch?

I love TV shows with tons of action and if supernatural creatures are involved, I’m a fan. I enjoy True Blood, Being Human, Burn Notice, Vampire Diaries, Arrow, Walking Dead, Spartacus, Teen Wolf, Dexter, Person of Interest and Supernatural. What tv shows are you looking forward to watching this fall? In addition to my regular line-up, Dracula looks interesting, and Almost Human looks like an entertaining futuristic, action-packed series. Also, it doesn’t hurt that it’s starring super cutie, Karl Urban.

8. Fun Question: If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

Ooooh, eeek! It’s a tie. Super strength like Superman. The power to control metal like Magneto or Superhealing/with claws like Wolverine. The Powers of persuasion is a nice ability, too.

9. What is up next for D.N. Simmons?

A brand new series called The Dead War Series. The first book is titled “Good Intentions”. If you’re a fan of vampires and other deadly monsters, you’ll want to grab a copy of this book as soon as it’s released. It’s going to be amazing. :D

10. Do you have anything specific you want to tell your readers?

I want to thank you all for your time and I hope you get a chance to check out my Knights of the Darkness Chronicles. It is truly unlike any paranormal/urban-fantasy series you’ve ever read. It’s not just an adventure, it’s an experience.
Desires Unleashed
(Knights of the Darkness Chronicles #1)
by: D.N. Simmons
Purchase now for Kindle | Nook ($.0.99)

Description:
Desires Unleashed is the first novel in the riveting, highly-addictive and sexually-charged Knights of the Darkness Chronicles. Experience the heart-pounding thrill of the chase in this electrifying page-turner as you uncover the mystery behind the series of gruesome killings that have been terrorizing the citizens of Chicago.

When a grisly decapitated corpse pops up on a Chicago Street, drained of blood, the highly-trained, government-funded special police force assigned two of their best detectives to the case. S.U.I.T. Detectives Warren Davis and Matthew Eric delve deep into their investigation to discover just who or what is leaving mutilated bodies in public places. They soon realize that the killer or killers is one step ahead of them and if they are going to stop the menace before another innocent human is viciously attack, they are going to need help.

Natasha Hemingway liked her life just the way it was… normal and supernatural-free. The vampires and shape-shifters were just where she wanted them to be—far away from her. All was going well until an unfortunate accident landed her in the hospital. It was then that she discovered she had an ability that could help her save countless lives. All of a sudden, she finds herself thrust into the dangerous and alluring world of the supernatural and into the arms of two very sexy and deadly vampires.

Original, gritty and sprinkled with just the right amount of humor and wit, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and take you for a ride you won't forget. You don’t want to miss out on this amazing series!

I was born in the little, but big bustling city of Chicago, Illinois. I still live there today and I’m loving every second of it ... Except for those harsh cold winters. I started writing short horror stories when I was eleven years old. It wasn't until 2004 that I decided to take the plunge into the professional literary world when I wrote Desires Unleashed.

I love the supernatural world; I've always found it fascinating, especially vampires and shape-shifters. It was my love of the genre that motivated me to create the story I had always wanted to read. I published it, hoping there were other people out there who would be entertained by that same story. I love to entertain people, to offer them that fantasy world they can escape into filled with wonders and good times. I know I appreciate the escapism I've delved into when reading a good book.

Some of the accolades I've won for my writing are: "New Voice of Today" by A Romance Review, "Rising Star" by Love Romance and "Author of the Month" by Warrior of Words. I've been nominated two years in a row in several categories, including "best vampire novel" and "best urban-fantasy" at Love Romance and More. My third novel; The Royal Flush did win honorable mention in 2006.
