Raina Anand may have finally given in to family pressure and agreed to let her grandmother play matchmaker, but that doesn’t mean she has to like it—or play by the rules. Nani always took Raina’s side when she tried to push past the traditional expectations of their tight-knit Indian-immigrant community, but now she’s ambushing Raina with a list of suitable bachelors. Is it too much to ask for a little space? Besides, what Nani doesn’t know won’t hurt her…As Raina’s life spirals into a parade of Nani-approved bachelors and disastrous blind dates, she must find a way out of this modern-day arranged-marriage trap without shattering her beloved grandmother’s dreams.

What is it about vampires that’s so compelling?  The legend has been around for centuries, but stories about vampires still excite people.  I know some of my favorite books, shows, and movies are about vampires – The Vampire Diaries, the Vampire Academy series, the Sookie Stackhouse series and True Blood, Anne Rice’s books, the Twilight Saga. I loved them all!

I’ve been thinking about writing a vampire series myself for a long time, and now that I’m in the middle of it, I’m having great fun with it.

My mother had excitedly begged to read every one of my stories as I’m writing them… until now. Her favorite genre is Amish romance, so vampires are just a little too far off the scale for her. 😆

But what about you?  Do you like vampires, or do they creep you out?

Interview With Author Michael Phillip Cash

Please tell readers a bit about The Battle for Darracia.
A widening social gap between inhabitants on the planet Darracia is fracturing the once peaceful world. Nineteen-year-old Prince V’sair soon finds he must harness the power of the elusive Fireblade – the secret to a warrior’s heart. His quest is made all the more difficult because of his Uncle Staf Nuen’s selfish desire for domination. The young prince must use the energy of the Elements to find his true destiny before Staf Nuen can conquer Darracia.
Science Fiction/Fantasy writing is all about world building. How do you begin building your fantasy world?
That goes back to my habit of outlining. I start with a plot outline and then I begin adding my characters to that world. I play around with words – I like to call it word warping. Warping ordinary words into fantastical names, places and other story elements results in some pretty unique fantasy worlds.
Are you an outliner or a pantser?
Definitely an outliner. I know some authors who are content allowing the story take any number of directions along the way to the ending. I’m the type of author who needs to know where things are starting and ending before I begin writing. I don’t think there’s really any right or wrong way here. Whatever works for the writer is always best and outlining my stories works best for me.
