Last Friday, Piatkus, the UK publisher of Sherrilyn Kenyon and the Belador Code series, hosted a live web chat with New York Times bestseller and co-author of the Belador Code series, Dianna Love. For one hour fans were granted a fantastic chance to submit their questions on the Belador Code to Dianna – many great questions were asked and lots of fun was had by all.
For those who missed it we have collected the best bits from the web chat below. Enjoy!
Fan: The worlds and mythology you and Sherrilyn Kenyon create are astonishing! Where does inspiration for Beladors mythology come from?
DL: Celtic mythology and the idea of warrior descendants living today . . . and creating a mix blood female with a lot of troubles who likes to kick demon butt!
Fan: Do you have a planned number of books for the series?
DL: Not a set number of books, but there are at least 4 major series arcs — first one is soon. Lot happening in CURSE.
Fan: Don’t want Evalle’s story to ever end but want her to find HEA! Thank you!
DL: LOL — we feel the same way! And she has a lot of story yet to go with big surprises coming in Curse & next book
Fan: How did you come up with lugnuts as a snack for Feenix?
DL: He is TOO cute and I kept thinking ‘what would be fun that would cause trouble?’
Fan: Do you and Sherrilyn Kenyon ever disagree on an idea and if so, how do you decide who wins?
DL: LOL — We respect each other’s opinion so no fights, but lots of [snarky comments] in the pages.
Fan: I basically love ALL the characters in this series! Is there any of them you particularly feel close to?
DL: I truly LOVE Feenix because he’s so sweet, but Evalle is special to me because of what she’s survived and faces each day.
Fan: What’s the best part of writing in collaboration?
DL: Brainstorming together, sharing moments when some character or plot element surprises us, laughing (we snark a lot) . . . Being able to spin a story in unexpected directions is what drew me into writing. Love puzzles & lots of action.
Fan: If you could have a magical power like the Beladors we wondered what it would be?
DL: Oh, it would so be to teleport. I hate traffic and would take a helicopter over diamonds any day . . .
DL: A question from me – who do you think Evalle should end up with? And why?
Fan: Storm! But I have to say the way you ladies write it makes me dream about anyone so, I’m flexible on my decision. LOL
PB: Ohh — that is a tough one. We don’t want to play favourites but Jaguar shapeshifters are pretty hot! (i.e. Storm!)
PB: Time is up guys! A massive thank you to @diannalove for her time and speedy question answering!
DL: Thank you for inviting me! I enjoyed chatting.#Beladors
