Cecy Robson is visiting the virtual offices today to chat about her new release, Sealed With a Curse. Check out what she has to say about her new book!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.
[Cecy Robson] How about less? Dorky, smiley, Thor-obsessed, Spiderman’s secret lover.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Sealed with a Curse?
[Cecy Robson] Celia, Taran, Shayna, and Emme Wird are sisters who received their unique powers as a result of a backfired curse placed on their Latina mother. Humans have always perceived them as “weird” and they’ve never fit in. They make a decision to move to the Lake Tahoe region, an area densely populated with mystical beings due to the lake’s magical properties. Unfortunately for the sisters, the area soon becomes plagued with a deadly bloodlust epidemic. Misha, one of the master vampires in the region, is accused of being responsible for the plague. He seeks out Celia and her sisters to help him prove his innocence. Aric, the alpha werewolf in the area, and the one responsible for keeping the human populace safe, doesn’t care if Misha is innocent or not. He and his weres have one mission: kill any and all infected vampires and stop the epidemic. Time is running out for Misha—and for the Wird girls. In stepping into the mystical limelight, the girls have now become a target.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?
[Cecy Robson] The characters originally came from a dream. Originally they were more special ops type women, who just so happened to have werewolf boyfriends. Great dream, right? The more I dove into their characters, the more I realized they didn’t fit the military-type persona. One girl had the power to predict the future. I scratched that idea and decided just to give each of them unique powers and made them sisters in order to bond them. As far as the concept, they needed a goal. What’s a better goal than stopping psycho-bloodlust infected vampires before they eat you?
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Celia?
[Cecy Robson] Protector. Vulnerable. Heart.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Misha had a theme song, what would it be?
[Cecy Robson] Bad Blood.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Aric won’t leave the house without.
[Cecy Robson] Growling.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things will you never find in Celia’s purse?
[Cecy Robson] Lipstick, weapons, and whoopee cushions.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are your greatest creative influences?
[Cecy Robson] Solitude. My overactive imagination will not be silenced.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?
[Cecy Robson] A comfy chair, my laptop, and silence.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?
[Cecy Robson] BREED by Chase Novak. One word—Whoa!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?
[Cecy Robson] I fell in love with reading at a very young age. The first novel I remember reading was Island of the Blue Dolphins. I was either in second or third grade when I read it.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
[Cecy Robson] Reading and spending time with my family.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?
