Day 3 (of 28 Total Days) Post:
Doing a live, in-person interview with Anne Rice was an extreme honor, and I thought it was a good opportunity, as part of this continuing series of countdown posts, to refresh anyone’s memory of this recent interview I conducted with Anne Rice this past summer. In the very least, this should help also grant newcomers to this blog the opportunity to watch the special interview.
The interview took place at the invigorating environment of Thrillerfest, where thriller writers from different sub-genre backgrounds, gather at the Hyatt hotel for stimulating conversations about the craft of writing the perfect thriller novels. Aspiring writers are invited too, and I am thinking of bringing my cherished Death Seer manuscript, currently in the works, polished and edited thoroughly multiple times, to this slated event.
Again, this was an unforgettable opportunity, and I will always have eternal gratitude for Becket, Anne, and others involved with making this highly memorable scene happen. Anne is such a class act- truly humble and very intelligent- and I hope all readers here get a chance to meet her, and get their cherished hardcover copies of Prince Lestat signed, when October, 28, 2014 comes upon us
Btw,Stay tuned towards the end of the second part of the interview, Game of Throne fans, for a special Tyrion-related surprise!!

Dedicated Blog Readers; What would you ask Anne Rice yourself, if you had the opportunity to sit down and casually chat with her about an array of different topics? Leave your comments below in the comment area!!
***Please send photos, artwork, letters, diary entries, an epistolary novel, something that you feel artfully engraves the impact Anne Rice’s stories have had on your life to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of “28 Days of Lestat! With your express permission being granted to share these things (one poem or song per day during the course of October, 2014, up till the 28th of October), I hope to post something each day- a small fragment of one person’s completely unique approach to the series, which will hopefully come together, impressively, on the 28th of October, to virtually reconstruct the different views and memories people attach to this series, the character of Lestat, and many of the other vampires (or immortal species) Anne has created, in an uncannily realistic way, which makes us believe that these characters are very real, and existing amongst us.
Also, be sure to share anything Vampire Chronicles-related on the Lestat Book Coven Facebook Group Page, any comment sections on all 28 individual #28daysofLestat posts here on this blog, or on Twitter,Instagram, Tumblr, and beyond!!
