Author Interview: Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié

The Book Monsters are proud to welcome Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié. The co-authors of Unleashed, a dazzling new book filled with secrets.

Katelyn McBride’s life changed in an instant when her mother died. Uprooted from her California home, Katelyn was shipped to the middle of nowhere, Arkansas, to her only living relative, her grandfather. And now she has to start over in Wolf Springs, a tiny village in the Ozark Mountains. Like any small town, Wolf Springs has secrets. But the secrets hidden here are more sinister than Katelyn could ever imagine. It’s a town with a history that reaches back centuries, spans continents, and conceals terrifying truths. And Katelyn McBride is about to change everything.

Broken families, ageless grudges, forced alliances, and love that blooms in the darkest night—welcome to Wolf Springs.

Describe your book in five words or less.

Nancy: Paranormal supernatural creepy romantic excitement!

Debbie: Scary howling great romantic read

How did the idea for "Unleashed" come to you?

Nancy: We loved Holgar, our werewolf character in Crusade, another series of ours. We've both been werewolf fans for a long time, and we had a lot of cool mythology we could incorporate into a series.

Debbie: We thought up the title Hot Blooded (which is actually going to be the title of book 2) and we were off and running.

What was the most challenging aspect of writing "Unleashed"?

Nancy: The first draft came in about 100 pages too long and we had to cut it. Luckily, we got to console ourselves at Disney World after we did it.

Debbie: It was brutal deciding which scenes could wait for book 2 and which scenes had to be axed completely.

What's something surprising about yourself that most people wouldn't think true?

Nancy: I hate walk-through haunted houses.

Debbie: I hate cell phones. They make it hard for me to truly get away and relax. Although I have to say that the notes feature on my new iPhone is really fantastic. I used it while on vacation to write down a story idea at one in the morning.

First, you two conquered vampires. Now, werewolves. What is next?

Nancy: THE WORLD. Actually, we have an idea for a really scary adult series. We'll see!

Debbie: Don’t forget we also conquered witches! We do have a really scary adult series in the works but it’s hush-hush at the moment.
