Hi Lindsay! Thanks for having me.
I’m really excited about my upcoming release Dark Angel, All the Stars. It’s the story of how the Archangel Lucifer falls in love with a mortal.
And since he knows I’m promoting his book, Lucifer was nice enough to sit for an interview. Here it is, my Interview With the Dark Angel
Me: Thanks for coming, Lucifer. That was really nice of you.
Lucifer: Nice? You don’t remember signing the dotted line?
Me: That was to get on your calendar, right?
Lucifer: *way too sneaky smile* Of course. What questions can I answer for you?
Me: Well, I think readers might be wondering what your average day in Hell is like.
Me: Not the souls. You. What do you do?
Lucifer: *laughing* Torment. But that’s just to start my morning off right. After I visit the lower chambers to see to see to everyone’s . . .ahhh. . comfort. . . I fly up to my office.
Me: You have an office?
Lucifer: What do you think? That I bathe in flames and just hope Hell keeps going along?
Me: Sort of.
Lucifer: Must be interesting to be human and so limited in your thinking. My office is what you would call a palace. Aery—you know who he is?
Me: Everyone knows who he is. You’ve made him famous. He says that in his interview he’ll be telling all about the bed of flames you two share.
Lucifer: *giving the interviewer a sharp look* I hope he drove a hard bargain for that.
Me: He asked me to take this (interviewer snaps a picture of Lucifer with her phone). He said the look on your face would be priceless. *nervous laughter* He was right.
Lucifer: Your time on my calendar is nearly up. If you stay in Hell past your appointed time, you’ll be here with me quite a few centuries.
Me: *shuffling through my questions* Right. Forgot about that. So, in your office, what do you do?
Lucifer: Review offers from mortals who send me requests to sell their souls. I cull the best ones, and send my imps to make an offer.
Me: Let’s say a reader wants to sell their soul, how would they contact you? Is there a Lucifer.com? Do you have bargain basement sale days?
Lucifer: *leaning way too close* A soul in need of my services will always find me.
Me: Great. So, my next question is the one question that mortals have been ahh. . .burning to know.
Lucifer: If you ask about the apple, I’ll promise you seven years of edits from Hell.
Me: *swallowing* Well, not the apple, exactly, but you know, were you really there in the Garden of Eden?
Lucifer: Of course. I was the most beautiful creature in creation, the most worshipped, until mortals came into the picture. I had to see these new “mirrors of divinity” as they were called. *gives this reporter a slow up and down look* I wasn’t impressed.
Me: But you fell in love with a mortal.
Lucifer: The Garden was eons ago. Aery has changed me. Mortals are more than just souls for sale. I see that now. He loves me. It’s what my brother Raphael would call a miracle.
Me: And you? Do you love him?
Lucifer: *a long thoughtful pause* If I had to, I would let go of every soul I’ve collected since the beginning of time, if it meant I could keep Aery.
Me: Looks like my time is just about up.
Lucifer: *wicked smile* Are you sure I can’t entice you to stay?
It was a close call, but I made it out of Hell just before Lucifer’s Infernal Calendar Clock slammed the gate shut.
Lucifer says if you have a soul to sell, you’ll know where to find him.
Dark Angel, All the Stars is coming out on May 28th with Silver Publishing. You can pre-order now on my blog.
