BOTM - Bleeder {Wattpad}

Author: Deathofcool
Genre: Fantasy / Horror

Wattpad Book Blurb:
What if everything you knew about your life was a lie?

Forfeited as retribution for the alleged supernatural crimes of a father she's never met, Mildred "Mills" Millhatten is cast into a strange, vicious world that she didn't know existed and has little hope of understanding. 

As a Bleeder, one whose lifeblood feeds the Nosferatu, her continued survival hangs ever in the balance. The creatures are keeping her alive because they believe her blood has mystical properties. Mills fears what will happen when they realize they are wrong – or are they? 

If she hopes to survive and discover who she truly is, she needs an ally. She needs to befriend a bloodthirsty monster. Because she lives in their world now, and if she doesn't do something fast, she's going to die in it too.

Author Interview

1. Please tell the readers a bit about yourself.

I’m a thirtysomething diehard genre junkie who resides in Toronto, Canada, with my husband, our soon-to-be first child, and a dog and a snake. By day I work as the managing editor at Rue Morgue magazine. When I’m not at the office I pen scary stories for teenagers. I’ve been a book nerd ever since my mother taught me to read, and when my face isn’t found buried in one, you may catch me playing video games, doing something crafty (knitting, sewing, scrapbooking) or watching TV (I’m a sucker for epic, drawn-out plot arcs).

2. What types of books do you write?

Young adult novels about monsters, apocalypses, and other dark subject matter. I’ve also been known to dabble in poetry on occasion.

3. How many books have you written?

Almost five; three of which are currently available to read on My first, Some Words Spoken, was a collection of poetry co-written by myself and Cynthia Gould. It came out back in 2002 and is now out of print, but can still be purchased used on Amazon.

4. What movie and/or book are you looking forward to this year?

I’m absolutely hooked on The Unwritten and Saga comics, so I’m always impatiently waiting for their next installments. I’m dying to see what showrunner Rob Thomas has cooked up for the iZombie TV adaptation, which was optioned by the CW. Same goes for NBC’s Constantine adaptation. And, of course, the next Hunger Games film (though, truthfully, I don’t suspect I’ll be seeing many movies on the big screen during my little one’s first year of life - she’s due at the end of July!).

5. What type of books do you enjoy reading?

Anything horror and/or urban fantasy. I also partake in the occasional excursion into non-fiction.

6. If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you want with you?

1. My family (wait, is that too cruel?).
2. A big tent.
3. My computer, with a solar-powered generator.

7. Are you considering a sequel?

Bleeder already has two sequels: Letters From New York [Blood Magic, Book 2], which is complete, and Ruler [Blood Magic, Book 3], which is currently being serialized. The series will wrap after the next book, Rebels [Blood Magic, Book 4].

8. What inspired you to become a writer?

I’ve been writing in one form or another most of my life. I first started when I was still a kid. At the time, it was a way to work through my mother’s death and the other various traumas of childhood. Since then it has become an absolute passion and a constant in my life, from my day job as a journalist/editor to the countless hours I spend pounding away on my keyboard composing my fiction. I don’t write because I want to, I write because I have to; I think I would be lost if I didn’t. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of submerging myself in the pages of a novel I’m working on, and wholly giving myself over to the world I’ve constructed and those characters. It’s just about the best escapism from the doldrums of reality and everyday life that I can imagine.
