Blog Tour Interview with Christie Silvers




Please Welcome, Christie Silvers!



Hello Christie and thank you so much for stopping by on your Blog Tour. We have done so many interviews together and they all rocked. So big hugs for making the stop here, and another interview with me asking you whatever I want..LOL

Christie:  Thanks for having me, again, sweet Robin!  I’m always happy to stop by your blog.  The tour has been fun, and I just know you’ll have some new and exciting questions for me.  

Robin: You are most welcome!!!


The first thing I have to ask about is book four in the Liz Baker series…how is that book coming and will we see it in 2012?

Christie: Oh yes, you will most definitely see book four in 2012.  As a matter of fact, it’s in the works for an October 2012 release date.  Just in time for Halloween!

Robin: I will be the first in line..LOL


Can you tell us a little about Liz Baker and how her world came about?

Christie Well, Liz came to me after finishing up my Alex & Fiona series.  I wanted someone tough, single, old enough to know right from wrong, yet ready to push the boundaries to her own liking.  No Skinny-Minnie woman who needed a man, but a voluptuous do-it-herself woman who could rock the world of any man she comes up against.  That’s Liz Baker.  Her world is wild and crazy, full of monsters big and small, but no matter how much she protests and complains, I don’t think she’d have it any other way.


Robin: I have read the whole series and the little short that you wrote to keep we fans from beating down your walls. LOL. Can you share a little about ‘The Chad’ and what the future holds for him and Liz?

Christie Oh, The Chad.  I love Chad.  Chad has a lot of his own personal baggage (which we’ll learn more about in book 4), but never fails to drop everything to help Liz with hers.  Chad use to be a cop in their small town of Tremmel Crossing, Georgia, but there was a big happening and then he wasn’t a cop anymore.  It’s still a big secret as to what actually happened, but he ended up with a big payout and left the force.  That’s when he became the quiet, yet hunky, bouncer in Liz’s bar.  And the relationship between Liz and Chad moves forward from there.


Robin: Your covers are amazing! Would you share with us how the creation for your covers came about?

Christie:  I agree!  They are amazing.  And it’s all due to my lovely and most-talented cover designer Kelly Shorten.  She is a doll to work with and listens to all of my thoughts and ideas on what I envision for each book’s cover.  While writing each story I “see” clips and snippets of what the cover should be.  Kelly puts those snippets together and brings my ideas to life.  I hope she creates many more covers in the books to come.

Robin: I hate to spoil anything for those who have not read the Liz Baker series…but those of us who have, have to know…Will Liz’s power grow in her other half, the not so human half? And if you can answer this without spoiling too much….Will Liz become more like her birth father?

Christie:  Yes, Liz’s powers will definitely grow.  Her powers will “mature” as she learns more about them, and herself.  She’ll eventually reign in more control over them.  As for becoming more like Gregory…hell no!  LOL.  I don’t know about you, but I like Liz just the way she is.  She will go through trials and tribulations, but in the end, she’ll always be herself.  That’s not to say she’ll never go through periods of doubt and wrong decisions.  Oh no, just the opposite.  We all know bad decisions make us who we are today.  The same goes with Liz.

Robin: I absolutely agree…and I am a HUGE Liz Fan and I do love her just the way she is. ; )


One more question before we share some information on the Liz Baker series…Do you have anything else in the works, other than book 4 in the LB series?

Christie:  From time to time I like to dabble in a little paranormal erotica.  Right now I’m finishing up a novella titled A Girl and Her Djinn.  I get to be extremely graphic in these stories, whereas I try to keep the sex a little more subdued in the Liz Baker series.  Though they still come out steamy, from what I’ve been told by readers.  ;)


Robin: Is there anything that you would like to say to aspiring author who are just starting out?

Christie Read, write, read, write.  It’s a never ending cycle.  If you aren’t reading you should be writing.  And vice versa.  Reading makes for better writers just as much as writing does.  If you don’t read how are you expected to write?

Robin: Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and chat with us. I do hope we see you again....Very Soon!!!

Liz Baker, a 32 year old small town bar owner, thought it would be a normal evening of sex in a cemetery with her longtime beau, until she spotted someone in the distance, and all normality in her world ceased to exist. 

After several murders in her small town of Tremmel Crossing, Georgia, Liz comes to the realization that the murderer is coming after her, and he’s more dangerous than any human could possibly be.

With the help of her dead mother, bar bouncer, and cemetery lover, Liz learns that the murdering vampire was sent by her biological father to claim her as his own. Only then does she discover her real parentage and underlying special powers.

However, the vampire sent to claim her has powers of his own, most importantly the power to control her mind, emotions and desires. She wants him, needs him, her entire body aches for him, but she soon finds out that she must fight back to save the lives of her friends and loved ones. Only death will release her from Marcus’s powerful hold, but who will die first?



One Amazing Series.....



I thought life would get back to normal after I offed Marcus. I wanted adventure, but not the kind that could kill me with the glimmer of an idea. Yeah, he was a god in bed, but what fun would that have been if I never felt my own feelings and thoughts again? 

Now I'm surrounded by more monsters. I somehow knew there couldn't be just vampires in the world, but a girl can hope can't she? Oh well, that's not how it works in the real world.

Adele's estate is gorgeous, much bigger than I'm accustomed to, and it turns out to be an excellent headquarters once Cole McIntosh--Wendigo Extraordinaire--shows up and demands my services. Hell, I don't even know how to use the powers I supposedly have and this bastard wants me to reverse a gypsy curse. It's not my problem he's a dumb ass and got himself split in two. I happen to like his better half anyway. He makes a great sandwich!

Now Rick's pissed at me, Chad's looking as smoking hot as ever, and I have a handful of staff, friends, and my new high-class lawyer helping out...but will I be ready when Cole comes knocking at the front gate?

Saddled with the knowledge that she's not only a half-vampire, but also expected to be some kind of supernatural warrior to battle evil, Liz Baker--34 year old small town bar owner--would rather life went back to normal, choosing to ignore her destiny instead.

She survived murdering a vampire lover, being possessed by a spirit of her ancestor in order to destroy a wendigo, and even finding out that her ghostly mother is in love with the attorney in charge of her newly acquired fortune. But will she survive finding out that she has eleven half-vampire brothers and sisters?

Even with Chad at her back, and an ex-military werewolf pilot giving them defensive pointers, Liz simply wants to go back to normal. What ever normal is now. How will she ever find normal again though, what with a demon haunting her waking hours and a vampire trying to pull her into his paranormal army of offspring?

Chad didn't understand, nor would he. He didn't have this damn inner demon telling him things he shouldn't know, telling him to do things that he desired to do, but knew he should never do. She'd told me at the last second not to kill Gregory. The other children needed him. But was it true? Or just another guise in an attempt to lull me into complacency?

The demon side of me only wanted more evil, more control over my mind, my body, my actions. She had killer intentions, the kinds of intentions that would push me away from all the people I cared about and into the arms of a father I never wanted.














Liz Baker's elderly neighbor has always been there to watch over her.  She picks up the mail and feeds the cat when Liz is out of town. She calls to check on Liz and brings over chicken soup when she's sick. But MaryAnne Patterson has secrets of her own.  Secrets no one knew. . .no one other than her dead husband.

When Liz goes next door to pick up her cat after a trip, she finds out more about her beloved neighbor than she ever imagined possible.
