Book Launch Party!! Day One: Cynthia Leitich Smith: check out the interviews, and enter to win a copy of Tantalize (Candlewick, 2007, 2008) and a Sanguini's T-shirt. Sanguini's is the fictional vampire-themed restaurant in Tantalize.
Kimberly asks me: "Tantalize is primarily a vampire book, but I love how you envisioned the were-people. Can you tell me a bit about how you came up with that?"
And I ask Kimberly: "In modern literary and film interpretations, the vampire arguably reigns as the sexiest of Gothic creatures. But if you had to pick a first runner-up between the other popular monsters—werewolves, ghosts, zombies, ghouls, faeries, etc.—which would you choose and why?"
