Twelve Books for Christmas: Book Three

Twelve Books for Christmas


Please welcome Scott Bryan, Author of Night Children: Dark Threats.  Here today he is participating in the Twelve Books for Christmas!

Read the hilarious interview and then find out how to win a copy of his book! 

Konstanz: Describe your ideal date with Cinderella.

Scott: I’d have her submit to finger printing, DNA testing and pose before the castle cameras so I wouldn’t have to work for blasted hard trying to find her the next day! Also I’d abolish any clocks at the Ball so she’d be stuck revealing her identity.

Konstanz: What is something you hope people will learn from your books?

Scott: That no matter the handicap or challenge, anyone can rise up and take a stand.  Anyone can make a difference. Strength can come in small packages. History can be fun.

Konstanz: Do you write plot driven stories or character driven stories?

Scott: A mix of both, although my characters tend to choose their own paths no matter what is in my notes or outlines.

Konstanz:  What’s your greatest inspiration as a writer?

Scott: JK Rowling, Rick Riordan, mountains of comics and my family.

Konstanz:  Team Edward or Team Jacob?

Scott: I see “Team this or that” as a way to list which characters I find the best, most enjoyable. Yeah, I get that we’re supposed to see it as “Who do you want Bella to hook up with” but the only thing I want Bella to hook up with is an oncoming train.

With this point in mind, I’d say “Team Nessie” cause she reminds me of my main character, child vampire Annabelle.  Also I could be “Team Alice & Jasper”, “Team Volturi” or my fav Twilight baddie “Team Jane”.

Still, if I must play the “Pick a suitor for depressed Swan game” I would be for Jacob. He’s well rounded, fun, and more real than Mr. Fake Sparkles. Edward represents an ideal you ladies will never find. Jacob represents the boy next door who would sacrifice his life for you. That’s real.

Konstanz:  Whats the worst Christmas present you've ever been given?

Scott: I was waiting with baited breath for the 4 disc set of Lord of the Rings 2. Due to a mishap it was 2 video cassettes, no features, no extended scenes, nothing.  I was pretty disappointed because the many features were what made the purchase.
Not big. Got it all sorted. Mistakes happen. That’s the only real Christmas mistake I can think of. I’ve made worse fumbles in my gift-giving.
Thank you so much for the awesome interview! 
And now a little about the book:
Annabelle Foresight loves reading, animals and walks under the moonlight.  Her brother Roland loves exploring, hunting and lots of action.  For 300 year old children vampires, they’ve seen quite a lot.

There is no rest for these undead kids, and that’s a good thing. In this collection of stories they hunt for the Invisible Man and fight witches, vampires, Nazi werewolves, zombies and Mister Hyde.

Around any corner lurks a nasty vampire, werewolf or zombie. Annabelle and Roland, the Night Children, stand between us and those monsters who would try to kill us.

  1. Thank you for the chance to participate!

  2. The worst present? Well, the one that comes to mind is a strange sweater that I received many, many years ago. It was loosely knit and several colors and fuzzy.

  3. Loved the interview! Had to laugh on the fingerprinting, DNA submission, etc. I don't blame you, haha!
    Worst present I ever got was a fishing pole. It happened to be the exact one that my husband wanted, and lo and behold, he ended up going fishing with it! Imagine that! lol - That was very early in the marriage. He's learned a few things since then ;-)
    Thanks for the giveaway op! I'd LOVE to read this book!
    Happy Holidays!

  7. I never received a Christmas gift when I was growing up. I just remember the smell of tangerines during that winter season. I love them!
    Your reviews are awesome and really real.
    Thank you for profiling these authors.
