Book Tour Tuesday: Interview with Jan DeLima


My guest today is Jan DeLima, and she's talking about her Celtic Wolves series. As part of the tour she's giving away a $100 Amazon gift card (open to U.S. and Canada) and 5 signed copies of Celtic Moon and Summer Moon (package set). Very cool. :)

1. What flavor is your writing?

Strawberry-flavored Twizzler, sweet but slightly twisted.

2. If this book was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

Sophie, the heroine of Celtic Moon, has been compared more than once to Sarah Connor of the Terminator series. Sophie is a normal human who is forced to become strong to defend her son, so I understand the comparison. An actress who can be both vulnerable and a fighter would suit her character. Kate Beckinsale comes to mind. Dylan, the hero in Celtic Moon, is so alpha/masculine. I’ve yet to think of an actor who can live up to how I picture him.

3. What is your favorite scene in the Celtic Wolves Series?

I’ve just finished Autumn Moon, Elen and Cormack’s story, the third book in the series. It will be available this autumn. Their journey begins in the first book as secondary characters and grows throughout the series. Cormack is trapped in wolf form for centuries and is freed by Elen in Celtic Moon; he learns to be human in Summer Moon, and finally has his chance to be with her in Autumn Moon. Getting these two together was emotional in many ways; their love story began centuries ago, but they were never able to be together as more than companions—until now. I’ve just posted a new excerpt on my website that is the beginning of one of my favorite scenes… http://jandelima.com/autumn-moon/

4. What are you reading now or what books do you have in your TBR pile?

I have been on a contemporary romance kick lately. Recent favorites are Cara McKenna’s InterMix books, Hard Time, After Hours, and Unbound. They’re erotic romance with heart. Her voice and character development is wonderful. As for my TBR pile—that toppled years ago. I read what my mood suits me at the time.

5. What are you working on now?

A romantic suspense that has been calling to me for some time. The heroine is very real, and the hero may be my hottest yet. My keyboard has been steaming lately. ;)

Think Fast Questions

Coffee or tea?

Coffee, usually three cups by noon.

Cats or dogs?

Both, but I only have dogs at the moment because cats aren’t safe around my oldest bulldog.

Series or standalone?

Series—and I always start with the first book and read them in order.

Winter or summer?

Both; one can’t be fully appreciated without the other.

Print or e-book?

Sadly, it’s become e-book. I love print, but it’s just so darn easy to download a book in seconds.

Like father, like son...

Sophie Thibodeau has been on the run from the father of her son for more than fifteen years. Now her son, Joshua, is changing, and her greatest fears are about to be realized. He's going to end up being just like his father----a man who can change into a wolf.

Dylan Black has been hunting for Sophie since the night she ran from him----an obsession he cannot afford in the midst of an impending war. Dylan controls Rhuddin Village, an isolated town in Maine where he lives with an ancient Celtic tribe. One of the few of his clan who can still shift into a wolf, he must protect his people from the Guardians, vicious warriors who seek to destroy them.

When Sophie and Dylan come together for the sake of their son, their reunion reignites the fierce passion they once shared. For the first time in years, Dylan's lost family is within his grasp. But will he lose them all over again? Are Joshua and Sophie strong enough to fight alongside Dylan in battle? Nothing less than the fate of his tribe depends on it...

Known as the Beast of Merin, Luc Black loyally plays the part of unwanted son and devoted brother. He realizes marrying Rosa will strengthen his tribe’s territory, but he has no intention of loving ever again. Still, he’s unprepared for the intense physical need the wild she-wolf awakens in him.

Cormack has always valued Elen’s kindness and understanding, but after a desperate act of friendship causes Elen to free him from his curse, he realizes he wants more. He wants all of her—completely and forever.Except before Cormack can win Elen’s heart, Pendaran, the evil leader of the Guardians, captures her, determined to manipulate her incredible power to aid him in his twisted war against the shapeshifting tribes.

Now Cormack must use all of his skills as a warrior and a wolf to save the woman he loves—before Pendaran’s vile schemes destroy them all…
