Interview with Erica Hayes and DRAGONFLY

Hi, Erica, thanks for stopping by to visit and let us know about your new release - DRAGONFLY.

Thanks for having me! I’m delighted to be here.

Okay, lets dive straight in...

What genre/s do you write in?
My latest book, DRAGONFLY, is romantic sci-fi adventure. I also write dark paranormal romance. I have a series called the Seven Signs, set during a near-future apocalypse in Manhattan, with fallen angel warrior heroes and cool demon villains.

Why do you write?
It's fun to create new worlds and characters! I get engrossed in my stories, often at the expense of the real world, sadly.

Where can we stalk you?
I'm on Twitter most often – I'm @ericahayes. But you can stalk me on Facebook, too: http://www.facebook.com/ericahayes.author

Upcoming releases?
This month, I have DRAGONFLY. My first foray into sci-fi! It's a romantic adventure about an interstellar secret agent who's chasing the terrorist who killed her fiancĂ©. Spaceships, rayguns and romance, oh my! I love this book. Here’s the copy:

Carrie Thatcher is a tough Imperial counter-terrorism agent. Her mission: pose as a sexy cyber-thief to entrap the notorious rebel Dragonfly, who’s planning a heist on the space station Casa de Esperanza; a orbital casino on the fringe of Imperial space.

And this assignment’s personal: Dragonfly murdered her closest friend, and she’s in no mood to show him mercy. Even getting stuck with the partner from hell—Malachite, her sociopathic ex-lover and the Empire’s most dangerous agent—can’t dampen her relish for the kill.

With Carrie’s expert weapons skills and penchant for cracking codes, insinuating herself into Dragonfly’s confidence should be easy. But is he the ruthless killer she was led to believe? Or has her precious Empire deceived her? With Malachite watching her every move, the slightest flinch in loyalty means death.

Carrie is soon racing to uncover an audacious treachery that will shock the Empire to its core … if she can stay alive for long enough to expose it. 

Previous releases?
The first Seven Signs book is called REVELATION. Demons are hijacking the Apocalypse for their own ends. The hero is a fallen angel. His heroine is a medical examiner who doesn’t believe in angels. Angst, hotness and zombie-slaying ensues.

I also have a dark urban fantasy/romance series called the Shadowfae Chronicles, where demons rule the underworld in a fairy-infested nightmare city. It's more erotic than the others.

What are you working on now?
Galleys for Seven Signs book 2, called REDEMPTION, which is out in March 13. Other than that? Some new ideas. A superhero book, and an historical fantasy. And a demon-hunter story.

Thanks for stopping by, Erica!
