An interview with Lori Foster, who has launched her first title under the L.L. Foster name with her foray into Urban Fantasy.
Read the RRT review --> Servant: The Awakening.
[RRT Blog] Tell us about Servant: The Awakening.
[Lori Foster] SERVANT is the first of my books focusing more on the horror/urban fantasy element than on the romance. There is a romance, but it’s not as prominent as my Lori Foster books. In the first SERVANT book, The Awakening, I introduce the lead characters of Gaby and Luther. Gaby has a special gift – to see beyond the surface of normal people, to their demonic souls. Luther is a detective who is both drawn to Gaby, but suspicious of her.
[RRT Blog] Is this going to be a series and if so, how many books will there be?
[Lori Foster] It’s a series, and so far I’m planning on about 5 books. But if you’re familiar with my style, you know that could change. I write by the seat of my pants and sometimes (many times) things happen that I don’t expect.
Like new characters. New twists. New stories.
[RRT Blog]What made you decide to branch out into Urban Fantasy?
[Lori Foster] I’ve always wanted to write horror-type books, but I wanted to put my own stamp on them. That is, I wanted to do them my way, not any traditional way. My editor told me that SERVANT is more like romantic horror, but there are urban fantasy undertones too, so... I just hope readers like it!
[RRT Blog] With the release of Servant, does this mean you're cutting back on your steamy contemporaries?
[Lori Foster] Cutting back on ALL writing has been the plan for awhile. Right now, I’m hoping to do a romance, a horror/urban fantasy, and a novella each year. Other projects might come up, but I really want to give myself more down time.
[RRT Blog]What's coming up next for both Lori Foster and L.L. Foster?
[Lori Foster] The next Lori Foster single title will be Hard to Handle, a continuation of my SBC fighter series, out in Feb 08. But there are some novellas and reissues out along the way, too.
I’m currently working on the next L.L.Foster book, and that should be out in January 09. (That date *just* got changed from Dec 08)
