About the author:
R.A. Boyd is a writer, and reader, of paranormal romance, horror and urban fantasy. She lives in Maryland with her husband, daughter and her massive collection of books. Seriously. Her books have their own room.
She loves all things paranormal but dabbles in romantic comedies and hockey fights. When she’s not writing at three in the morning she’s binge-watching Netflix or plotting random scenes from her novels in the voice of her characters. It makes her daughter giggle but worries her husband.
What inspired you to write your book?
I was watching a show on Banned Books of the Bible and saw the story of Lilith, Adam's first wife. I started to wonder what would happen if she was the creator of all supernatural beings; and if she was, what would her offspring be like?
Here is a short sample from the book:
“Haines, please, help me.” The tears that roll down my face sting my cheeks and chin. Everything hurts. It’s as if my clothes should singe away from embers that should be oozing out of my pores.
“Perrian, I don’t know what to do.”
The ripping sensation intensifies until it feels like the top of my body will separate itself from the bottom; like my right side will tear away from the left. Like my insides are boiling. I close my eyes and wait.
Wait for it to stop. Wait to die.
Something seizes my body and yanks me upward. And the pain stops.
I don’t feel anything. It’s quiet. Only the sound of my breathing echoes in my head. Am I dead?
Haines’ voice is soft. “Perrian? Baby, open your eyes.” Though his voice sounds strong and grounded, a wavering tremble breaks though, and I can tell he’s afraid for me.
My limbs are flat against a hard surface, but the pain is gone. I open my eyes and see Haines looking up at me.
And I’m looking down at him. Because I’m on the ceiling. Looking down at him.
