Q & A with K M McFarland
1) Tell us about your book
I have four published books and am currently working on the fifth; the second book of the Bloodline Trilogy.
The Vampyr Trilogy:
Song of the Vampire-
After becoming a vampire, rock star, Quinn Forrester dropped out and became a recluse. The book begins nineteen years later, the night he reunites with his daughter, Nadia who he abandoned as a baby after becoming one of the undead.
Under a Bourbon Street Moon-
Things get complicated for the vampires when Quinn and Tristen's past comes back to haunt them.
New romance is in the cards for Quinn and Nadia when Randi Brooks returns to New Orleans and Nadia's old flame, Chad Devereaux comes back into her life.
The Bloodline Trilogy:
Sex, Blood, Rock' N' Roll, and Vampyr-
Where the Vampire Trilogy ends, the Bloodline Trilogy begins. My latest novel is Sex, Blood, Rock' N' Roll, and Vampyr, and the title pretty much says it all. Quinn and Nadia return with their night club act, After Dark performing weekly at Vampyr. Twenty-five years after Quinn's mysterious departure from his band, he is managing to keep his identity as an ageless vampire a secret until the opening of an art gallery brings his former band member to New Orleans.
2) What makes your vampires unique?
My books are set in the present day. Vampires of legend would never survive in the modern world of forensics, technology, security cameras, and cameras everywhere. So my vampires have evolved into gentle predators; no longer allowed to drain and kill their prey. Only "little drinks" are permitted, and they must eradicate the mortal's memory of blood drinking. Vampires must live in secret with humans and play nice with them. Many rely on alternative methods for acquiring blood, and vampire bars have risen in popularity. Former rock star turned vampire, Quinn Forrester is the owner of New Orleans most popular music venue, Vampyr. Aside from being the French Quarter's coolest music club, it is also a secret vampire bar serving the most excellent quality human blood to its vampire clientele. If they prefer to drink from a donor, the dark, secluded alley next to the bar seduces the most delectable human specimens itching to quench a vampire's thirst. Welcome to Vampyr!
3) If you could have a vampire ability, what would it be and why?
I think it would be great to be able to move at high speed or fly because I'm always late.
4) Is your book standalone or part of a series?
My books are meant to be read as a series, but there are no cliffhangers, so they also read well as a standalone. Each is a continuation of the last one, but they begin with a new story. The Vampyr Trilogy focuses on Quinn and his family. The Bloodline Trilogy reunites Quinn with his band. A lot of people tell me they read Sex, Blood, Rock' N' Roll, and Vampyr first and then went back and read the Vampyr Trilogy to get the back story on the characters.
5) What is next for you?
I'm working on the second book of the Bloodline Trilogy titled Vampyr After Dark to be released later this year. I also have some book signings planned. Check in with my website, www.kmmcfarland.com for updates.
