Q&A with Adom Sample, author of Courting Moon: Vampyres Desire

Now available to purchase is the paranormal romance Courting Moon: Vampyres Desire, book one in the Bloods Passion Saga, by Adom Sample.

The author has taken a few minutes out of his busy schedule for a Q&A about his new novel. 

When did you become interested in storytelling?

I’ve been writing since I was a child actually. As I child I loved reading stories. It was an escape from my hectic childhood. With that, I started writing plays, poetry, shorty stories and the like. I didn’t start writing seriously until I finished graduate school. I put off completing my Doctorates to write. I felt like doing something I was passionate about as opposed to continuing my studies. Writing makes me feel good.

What was your first book/story published?
My first book is a horror novel derived from a collection of stories that I wrote when I was a teenager. Since that book I’ve transitioned to romance/paranormal as I feel this genre suits me better.

What inspired you to write Courting Moon: Vampyres Desire?

One night at 3:30am I was sleeping in my bed dreaming about a story of a human woman and a male vampire who were not allow to be together. I woke up immediately and created a note to myself via email of the idea. The next morning I developed the plot to the story from what I could remember from my dream and it just took off from there. The more I wrote, the more ideas for other stories in the series came to me. Therefore, I guess you can say Courting Moon came to me in a dream.

What character in Courting Moon: Vampyres Desire is the most/least like you, and in what ways?

I don’t believe any of the characters are like me. I wrote them in the realm of people who I have interacted with. I guess Sebastian would be an outward projection of what I would like to be. He’s passionate in what he wants and is willing to give up everything to have it just the same as his love interest Kyra. I believe they both mirror what people in general would like to become.

What is your favorite part in Courting Moon: Vampyres Desire?

When Kyra and Sebastian first become intimate with each other. They explore feelings and sensations that are so new to them that it becomes hard to focus. I don’t want to give away spoilers so I’m not going to go into too much detail about my favorite scene. Let’s just say it involves Sebastian fighting for what he believes in in the face of his Coven and family.

What would your ideal career be, if you couldn't be an author?

A bodybuilder. If I could body build professionally and make enough money to support myself then I would. Bodybuilder by day and author by night would be my dream job.

Do you read reviews of your books? If so, do you pay any attention to them, or let them influence your writing?

Not only do I read them, I encourage my readers to write them. It gives me a chance to improve my writing and story development. It warms my heart when someone expresses his or her love toward my work. It only gives other who would consider reading my work a glimpse of what to expect.

What well-known writers do you admire most?

The first ever novel I ever read was Perception Point by Dan Brown. That book was one of the most exciting books I have ever read and made my fall in love with reading. After the reading this other novel I’ve become hooked. I admire this attention to detail and overall writing style as well as his ability to put these past talents into his work.

Do you have any other books/stories in the works?

With the exception of the Bloods Passion Saga (five books in total), I currently have six other projects in the pipeline. I’m constantly coming up with new ideas for a novel and I can’t seem to stop writing.
