Praise for Blood Bound
“Áine gave me even more reasons than ever to love her strong and charismatic cast of characters. Each stepped up their game in the newest book. I will be looking forward to the next installment of House Millar, which I understand will not be from Anya’s point of view. Sounds interesting. If you love a good vampire story…Blood’s Voice and Blood Bound are great choices.” — Kristin @ Better Read Than Dead
“I love the way she made all of the characters work together in one way or the other. Anya shows lots of important vampires that she is NOT one to mess with. She claims her position as Mistress in more ways than one and she does so very well. I especially liked the “letter” at the end! Definitely got me ready for book three!” — Christina @ Intoxicated by Books
“Although it’s a book about vampires, there are some surprisingly well thought out themes that play throughout the book. I loved the way Anya’s personality has grown and she’s really progressed as a character since book 1. Some of my favorite scenes were the tender moments between Anya and Nicholas and the love story that really builds inthis book.” — Vanessa @ Boekie’s Book Reviews
“I can assure you….. this book is like the first one. A wonderfull read. Easy to get into and easy to follow book. You get to meet some new characters, but also the characters I loved from book one are back. … Awesome book!!!” — Kyanara @ Kyanara’s Mad Reviews
“This time around, I was pulled right into the story. This book starts right where the last one ended. I enjoyed reading more about Anya’s back-story and got to know some more characters and their back stories. Anya is head of her own house now and she seems to be collecting more eclectic members this time around. I recommend this book for paranormal romance fans for its sensual scenes and titillating drama.” — Heather @ Earth’s Book Nook
Welcome Áine P Massie! Please start off by telling us a little about yourself.
Is Blood Bound a single title, or part of a series?
Blood Bound is actually book #2 in the House Millar series. It’s the continuing story of Anya (vamp), Declán (Guardian), and Nicholas (vamp); three souls that love, live, and nibble together, lol.
What were your inspirations for the story?
Blood’s Voice, book #1, started off as a gamin idea for an RPG I was playing with my hubby. Well, the main character was at least. From there the story just unfolded as I wrote. Blood Bound, is the continuation of that story. It picks up right after BV but goes in many different and unusual courses. As to where I got the ideas for some of the events and flashbacks in the story, I haven’t a clue. Even when I try to plot, my characters tend to hijack things and do their own thing, lol.
Please share your setting for Blood Bound. Have you ever lived or visited there? If so, what did you like most?
In BB Anya, Declán, and Nicholas live in Ithaca, NY because Declán is attending Cornell University. Sadly, I have never been there, but doing the research on the school and area showed me an absolutely beautiful area with forests, lakes, waterfalls, and abundant wildlife. It was perfect for both Declán—architecture studies—and my vampires who prefer secluded areas and who refuse to kill humans to feed.
When did the writing bug first bite?
Oh, goodness, I have no clue. I wrote little things as a kid. In high school I was part of a writing and drama group called Artists Unlimited. I wrote a lot both for it and for personal reasons. I often used writing as an outlet for my emotions. I stopped writing for a long time but a couple of years ago my hubby pushed me to write down my ideas that later became Anya and the House Millar series.
Who are you favorite authors, book/series?
Oh goodness. I don’t read authors so much as books. Stephen King, Anne Rice, J.K. Rowling, Geoffrey Chaucer, Jane Austen, Stephenie Meyer, Terry Pratchett, Peirs Anthony, Mary Higgans Clark, William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allen Poe, Tolkien, Isaac Asimov, CS Lewis, Richelle Mead, Andrew Grey, Mary Calmes, Terry Goodkind, and too many others to even think of much less name.
If you could have an author roundtable discussion with any authors, who would you invite?
Poe, Shakespeare, Tolkien, Rice, Rawling, and … Mead or Grey, I think. Yes, I know that just points out that I’m a bit strange, but I’m okay with that 😉
Do you have any hobbies or special things you like to do in your spare time?
Reading, writing, playing games with my kids, working on my sign language… what ever hits my fancy that day. I miss RPGing and hope to play again sometime.
Áine P Massie is originally from Florida, she now lives in Wisconsin where she works on her House Millar series full time while raising four children (the term herding cats comes to mind). Her major in College was Childhood Education (specialization in ages zero to five) with a minor study in Deaf Culture/ASL. She is also a Wiccan priestess dedicated to the gods, family, and love.
A lifelong reader, Áine has always had a particular fascination with vampires, mythology, and the unusual. When she can escape from her children and books, she enjoys . . . oh yes, reading, playing, ritual, a good cappuccino, and working with her healing stones.
Her first published work came in high school where she was part of a writing and drama group. But, she’s been reading the likes of Shakespeare and Poe since late elementary school and enjoys most forms of fiction. Blood’s Voice has been a long time in coming and with its publication (June 2011) Áine embarked on a new chapter in her life.
