Poison in the Blood by Robyn Bachar‏


Robyn Bachar was born and raised in Berwyn, Illinois, and loves all things related to Chicago, from the Cubs to the pizza. It seemed only natural to combine it with her love of fantasy, and tell stories of witches and vampires in the Chicagoland area. As a gamer, Robyn has spent many hours rolling dice, playing rock-paper-scissors and slaying creatures in MMPORGs.

She is honey to his throat…but one sweet taste could part them forever…


Banished from home while her husband adjusts to life as an immortal, blood-drinking chronicler, Emily Black is homesick, heartsick and struggling under the constant sensory barrage of a city drenched in ancient magic. When an old friend asks for her aid in solving a string of murders, she welcomes the distraction, despite the danger.

Justine Dubois is grateful for a seer’s help, and more understanding than anyone of Emily’s plight. As a guardian, Justine commands respect; as a woman, her magic is considered inferior. Together, they are determined to prove their worth to London’s magicians, starting with solving these murders—with maybe a bit of matchmaking on the side.

Long before he met his soul mate, Michael Black made a commitment to join the Order of St. Jerome. He will live forever, forced to watch the woman he loves age and die. As Emily hunts the murderer, Michael struggles to protect her. But if he loses control of his hunger, the greatest threat to her safety could be Michael himself.

Warning: Contains tortured soul mates, scheming faeries, vampire debauchery, deadly parasols, illicit blood-drinker relations, and adorable plot moppets.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
I love writing Emily, so much so that I gave Emily her own series. Poison in the Blood is a sequel to The Importance of Being Emily. The first book tells the story of how Emily found her soul mate, Michael Black. In this book, I tell the story of how they achieve their happily-ever-after.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
Poison in the Blood was my 2011 National Novel Writing Month project, so it took 30 days—to write the first draft, that is. I’m a big fan of NaNoWriMo, and though I can write a first draft in a month, it takes longer than that to polish a book.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
Discussing plot with my BFF Diana. We bounce ideas off each other, and she’s a huge help in my writing. I love that moment when we figure out how to solve a tricky plot problem, or how to turn the story in a new, cool direction.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Writing the synopsis. I hate synopses. Blurbs are a close second, because I have a hard time trying to boil down my book into a paragraph or two.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
I would be Tom Hiddleston, because he always looks like he’s having a fabulous time. Even when he’s pretending to be a velociraptor, or maybe especially when he’s pretending to be a velociraptor.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
There is a sad, half-empty bag of coconut shrimp that’s been in my freezer since December.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I’m working on more Bad Witch books, both in the Emily Chronicles and the modern setting. The second and third books in my Cy’ren Rising space opera trilogy will be out later this year, and I have a new post-zombie-apocalypse book called Bite Me out in March 2015.
