My Viking Vampire by Krystal Shannan was released August 25th and we are honored to be visited by the author herself! Lots of good stuff today so read on!
Welcome Krystal, it is so good to have you here at Rantings of a Reading Addict!
- I know you’ve released Taking Nicole from your Vegas Mates back in March, and Finding Hope in January, and now you are releasing another paranormal romance featuring vampires, My Viking Vampire. Of the weres, gods and vamps, which are your favorite to write so far?
Such a hard question. Why do I have to pick? LOL. I really don’t have a favorite. I’ve enjoyed writing them all. I like variety in my reading and writing, so to keep things fresh I think changing it up is good.
- Which supernatural being would you consider the sexiest?
I’m going to have to go with shifters for this one. Although, I have to say, I was totally in lust with Ares when I was writing Finding Hope. And Erick was just yummmmmmm.
- What is your ideal writing space? Do you have to have music, quiet, special snacks or a favorite location?
I like my bed and the recliner in the living room. I listen to music some or soundtracks of thunderstorms. Most of the time I just like the quiet. No favorite snacks 🙂
- My Viking Vampire is book one of the Sanctuary, Texas, how many more for this series do you have planned?
There are 7 books planned for Sanctuary, Texas. As well as a second series after it. Possibly a spin-off side series. Needless to say I’m so excited, and my cup overflows with ideas.
- Without spoilers, what is one thing that Erick does for Bailey that is going to make us swoon?
The way he makes everything for her. He will steal your heart with his compassion 🙂

My Viking Vampire
Bailey Ross’ world is crumbling around her. Her abusive ex, a human, is closing in on her again, and to make matters worse, a new enemy, a djinn, is stalking her. This supernatural being takes great pleasure in human pain, something Bailey has in excess thanks to her ex. If she’s caught by either, she’s as good as dead.
Backed into a corner and desperate to escape, she does something she swore wouldn’t ever be possible again –trusting a man. And he’s a vampire.
Protection via the sexy vampire Erick Thorson may prove to be a little more than she bargained for. Sparks fly between them and she finds herself agreeing to more than just protection. Though he has promised not to let anyone harm her, the small west Texas town is more than it seems and he may not be able to make good on his vow no matter how hard he tries.
Will Sanctuary be the home Bailey longs for or will she have to die to find out?

Meet the author:
Krystal Shannan goes to sleep every night dreaming of mythical realms with werewolves, vampires, fae, and dragons. Occasional a fabulous, completely human story slips into the mix, but powers and abilities usually crop up without fail, twisting reality into whatever her mind can conceive.
As a child, her parents encouraged her interests in Ancient Greek and Roman mythology and all things historical and magickal. As an adult the interests only grew. She is a child of Neverland and refuses to ever stop believing in fairies.
She is guilty of indulging and being a Buffy the Vampire Slayer groupie as well as an Angel fan. For those of you unfamiliar with the world of Joss Whedon, you are missing out! She also makes sure to watch as many action and adventure movies as possible. The more exciting the better. Yippee-Ki-Yay….. If you don’t know the end of that phrase, then you probably don’t like the same movies.
She writes stories full of action, snark, magick, and heart-felt emotion. If you are looking for leisurely paced sweet romance, her books are probably not for you. But, for those looking for a magical ride, filled with adventure, passion, and just a hint of humor. Welcome home.
