Interview - Damned by Alexandrea Weis


Are you currently binge watching anything on Netflix, Hulu ?

What keeps you glued to the screen? I just finished getting through Downton Abbey. I know I am late to the party.  

Do you prefer movies or TV series? 

It depends on the story. If it’s good, I’ll watch either one.

When it comes to reading do you prefer standalones or series? 

Again, it depends on the story. I am open to both.

Do you prefer to start new book series when the first book is released or do you want for a several books in the series to be released so you can binge read? 

I usually check out the first book to see if I want to continue. I don’t mind waiting between books in a series.

What are some of your hobbies, interests or guilty pleasures (other than reading and writing)? 

I am a wildlife rehabber with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries, so animals are my heart. When I am not writing, I’m usually up to my elbows in furry creatures. 

What's your guilty “nerd” pleasure? 

Ancient history books, the historical reference kind. I love reading about the ancient past.  

Have you ever peeked at the ending of a book? 

Yes, a few times.


When it comes to your own writing are you a plotter or a panster? 

A panster. I never plot. I just write and see where the story takes me.

Excerpt:

Lexie awoke with a start from a sound sleep. Gaping into the blackness of the strange bedroom, she discovered the storm had abated and she detected the creaks and groans of the old house. Then a crack from the floorboards made her flinch.
It came from Will’s side of the bed. She reached out to shake him, but he didn’t move.
“Will?”
She received a muffled grunt.
Another crack in the floor, but this time it happened right next to her side of the bed. An odor lingered in the air.
Is that coffee?
A column of light glittering to her left made Lexie’s mouth go dry. The oddity soon took on the shape of a man.
His strong frame, long arms, and tapered hands came into view. Good-looking, despite the cruel curl of his lips, his chiseled features, and engaging eyes, made her insides tingle. But when the cut of his old-fashioned red vest, long black coat, and white ascot tie took shape, Lexie understood this wasn’t some hazy fantasy. She didn’t fantasize about men from another century.
Lexie clutched her bedsheet as a fearful scream rose in her throat.
“Please, my dear, don’t bore me with your petty shrieks,” the figure said, his tone condescending.
Like a lightbulb getting enough electricity to reach its wattage, his image brightened, bringing out his details. Lexie scrutinized the buttons on his coat, the fine craftsmanship of his high black boots, and grasped the identity of her visitor.
Then a loud pop rang out, and he was gone. It happened so fast, Lexie questioned if it had happened at all.
“Welcome to Altmover Manor, Ms. Arden.” She recognized the voice of the apparition. “I hope you enjoy your stay.”

This time, Lexie did not hold back her scream, and as she opened her mouth …
