My Review of As Blood Rages

As Blood Rages
Bitten Twice

As Blood Rages is book two in the Macedo Ink Series. It seems like I just finished with the first one, anticipating the second one with baited breath because I could not wait to see where Bitten took the characters. I loved the first one because I felt like I was in the story itself, experiencing the same things they were. This impressed me immensely, and showed me the talent, imagination and brilliance of this author. She makes sure her work keeps the attention of the reader, so much so, it had me sitting on the edge of my seat and very hard to put down in order to get some rest!

As Blood Rages flows where Blood Moon left off, I am excited to see if there is going to be a third book?! Once again the love and passion runs deep and makes a great companion when all is quiet in the house and are cuddled up under the blankets in my bed. Each time I read a book with an author's interpretation of a male vampire, I find myself falling in love with the character or man behind the words...and Alexander is no different. Love stories involving the vampire can ,and usually are very intense and erotic. It allows me to be taken away into my imagination, shutting out the rest of the world....away from the problems life has to offer...into a world filled with mystery, suspense, love, anger, bitterness, passion, all the great things that make up a wonderful tale. But as the last chapter appears and I come to the final word of the book, I feel disappointed...........but only until I pick up the next one! *smile*

I did not give a lot away about Bitten's newest baby, As Blood Rages because I want you to be as spellbound and excited about the book as I was and am! Bitten Twice has never let me down on any work she has written, and As Blood Rages is no different. I HIGHLY recommend this book to not all paranormal/vampire lovers out there, but those of you who love a great suspenseful, intense love story as well.

I give As Blood Rages five stars *****

My Interview with Bitten Twice:


Where are you from?
I’m a transient and as such I have been ‘from’ many places. The journey started in Georgetown, Guyana in South America and has pit stopped in several countries and numerous towns along the way.
Tell us your latest news?
I just came back from the Florida Writers Association’s tenth annual conference which was amazing. I met so many awesome author’s, agents, and publishers there. Phenomenal!
When and why did you begin writing?
I began writing when I was very young. I was given a journal to write in to document my day, but to be honest with you my days weren’t as exciting as when I used my imagination to enhance the days activities.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
In 2007, when I hammered out my first book, A Blood Moon.
What inspired you to write your first book?
The writer’s strike of 2007 was in its glory and I like many others was not happy with the disappearance of my vampire shows like Moonlight and BloodTies. I felt like I could create a viable product. Something in me just sparked and in two months I had a rough manuscript that I was calling A Blood Moon.
Do you have a specific writing style?
I write in Limited Omniscient POV.
How did you come up with the title?
For the first book, that was easy. A full moon is stereotyped to bring out the worst in people while a Blood Moon is thought to bring out the hunter. I felt it was a great foundation to begin my series with.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
I usually write about love and conflict. In As Blood Rages, the underlying theme is built on the premise of a house of cards. If your love has a foundation like a house of cards, when circumstance presents itself as a façade that same love may not have the strength to survive due to a shaky foundation. Believe that those who love you would strive to never hurt you. Have that faith that each relationship is its own and you are the only commonality.
How much of the book is realistic?
Well the book is an Urban Fantasy so some of the settings are real, but all of the action and fun are surreal while some of them may be ‘for real!’
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
I think as a writer that you pull personality traits from people within your circle of influence. If I were to write something that only held my perspective or manner of reacting it may be gather quite a bit of edust. But people themselves are so much fun.
Have you ever sat in a mall and just watched the people go by?  
It’s better than television. You’ve got drama, comedy, and more.
What books have most influenced your life most?
I would have to say the Bible is a great source of inspiration. I love the history and like any book when you’re writing it’s open to interpretation. I love books by vampire authors; known or unknown. I think its excellent to check out what’s hot and what’s new.
I actually grew up reading whatever I could get my hands on. Like the James Herriot books and one Kathleen Woodiwiss book “Shanna” that changed the way I looked at life forever. As a young headstrong girl myself, I now shaped the idea of the perfect man and what adventure looked like.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I would love to be mentored by the late L.A. Banks. I love her books.
What book are you reading now?
I’m actually in between books right now, but my next one will be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. That book has been recommended to three times, that’s a sign.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
I just read some J.R. Rain books and loved them, but I’m not sure he is a new author. I also like the Denise Verrico books and Jayde Scott’s novel. I also recently read “A Whisper of Lies” by Cherry-Ann Carew which was out of my genre but that had me up all night.
What are your current projects?
I’m just in the editing process of a compilation of short stories about Incubus and Succubus. These were inspired by a really great dream.
I’m also working on For Blood Money, the third in the Macedo Ink (vampire) series.
Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.
Bertena Varney as an author and as President of Mystical Events has been an awesome support system for me. I must also mention Elizabeth Lorraine and the Florida Writer’s Association. I know you asked for one, but they are all up there as awesome resources for me.
Do you see writing as a career?
Writing is most definitely a business for me. It stopped being a hobby in 2007 when I got serious about it. I make sure that all in my circle understand that I write for a living and not for a dream.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
I’m satisfied with the latest book. I think someone new could jump into it without leaving the existing readers feeling like it moved slowly. I’m loving the next one though. I think it’s difficult to be attached to the one when you are already enthralled by the next.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I would have to blame it on that childhood journal. Although I never really finished any of those daily short stories.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
I teach time management and making sure that others respect your time. Sometimes it is difficult to turn down offers to have a good time and sit at the computer with the same focus.
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
My favorite author is L.A. Banks. Her writing was intense, relatable, and vibrant.
Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?
I love to travel and when I do, you can expect to hear something about the locale that I’ve been to in one book or the other. I love to explore new geography and culture.
Who designed the covers?
You can find her on Facebook at:
What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The editing of the book is always the most difficult for me.
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Consistency produces.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Figure out what type of writer you want to be and then research and hone your craft.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the experience.
