Thianna Durston’s Discovery
I am excited that Thianna Durston stopped by today. Her newest book Discovery is out tomorrow so you don’t have long to wait to read it. She joins me today for a super fun interview that I somehow managed to keep my inner fangirl in check. Go me! After the interview, read all about the book and an excerpt that makes you want to find out what happens next. At the very bottom, enter for a chance to win a copy of the book.
Amanda C. Stone: Good morning! *flails excitedly* I’m so happy you could join me today. I love your books and am trying to hold my inner fangirl. If you could travel anywhere all expenses paid where would you go? Name one thing you’d see or do there.
Thianna Durston: Ooh, interesting question. I’ve always had a thing for space travel, so I’ve got to say travel to one of those planets that NASA says could sustain life. I’d love to go, meet the people, live their life for a year. If I loved it, I’d stick around 🙂
ACS: That sounds like the best fantasy trip I’ve heard in a while. It would be amazing to see what some of those planets actually look like! If you could snap your fingers and have an invention to do anything you want, what would you want it to do?
TD: I’d love a device, maybe about the size of the smallest cell phones, that would open up a portal to another dimension. That would be awesome. Just think about all the interesting things I could see or do. All the cool creatures I’d meet. I’d probably spend the rest of my existence jumping form dimension to dimension.
Then I could write a book – The Sexiest Men of the Dimensions. LOL
ACS: I’d read the heck out of that book! And love to know some of the “true” stories behind your, ahem, inspiration. You are traveling with The Doctor (or any other time traveling person). Would you visit the past or the future?
TD: Hmm. Good question. While the past is a known quantity – I could know what to expect wherever I went, I rather like the idea of going into the unknown. Head a thousand years into the future and see if Earth is even more technologically advanced or if technology failed us and we’re back to acting like cavemen.
ACS: I think that’s the biggest question I’d want answered that would lead me to going forward on a trip like that. See if we’ve managed to blow ourselves off the map too. What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
TD: Ugh – I tried kimchi once. Uh, I’ll never do that again. I couldn’t even swallow it, had to run to the bathroom to spit it out.
ACS: I had to look up what that was. Does not sound appetizing. You’re invited to appear on a morning/afternoon talk show. Which show are you going on, and what are you going to talk about?
TD: Oooh, I’d go on Oprah…if her show was still around, anyway. I’m into metaphysics so I’d talk about how we create our own lives and how that’s affected mine… and of course, I’d have a book or two to show. *grins*
ACS: That would be a fabulous show! YOU GET A BOOK! YOU GET A BOOK! WE ALL GET A BOOK! *throws confetti*
Ahem, right. So it was fabulous having you here today. Thank you for stopping by!
Warning: This book is a paranormal m/m romance with some horror elements. It also crosses cowboy and vampire genres. If you don’t think cowboys look hot with fangs, you’re missing out.
Living in Montana and working the ranch is all Aaron wants to do for the rest of his life. Diagnosed as allergic to the sun thirteen years previous, every day is a struggle to get out of bed. Having to wear long-sleeved shirts, gloves, and even material to cover his face from the effects of the sun, just makes it all worse. Now, in his thirty-second year, he is sure this will be his last summer. While he hates it, he knows he needs to come to terms with the truth and put things in order for his younger cousins. Before he does so, he heads out for one night of pleasure before facing what’s coming.
Jaret loves excitement and new adventures. For over five hundred years, he has sought them out. In Montana on a whim, he comes across someone he doesn’t expect, someone who makes him feel things he does not understand and does not want to give up. In no time at all, he feels like he cannot live without Aaron. The only problem is Aaron doesn’t know who he is, what he is, nor that he isn’t going to die. Not on Jaret’s watch. With a plan to help the other man discover who he is in place, he only has one thing to worry about: whether an ancient enemy will come and destroy everything he now holds dear.
“You’re not going to die, Aaron.”
“You don’t know that. This sickness, ailment, curse…whatever the fuck it is. It’s gettin’ worse. And it’s changin’. Morphin’ into somethin’ scary. My nightmares lately have been horrible.”
“What kind of nightmares?” Of course, Jaret knew. They were the same kind all of them had during the change. Fire and ice as the body went through horrendous chills and soaring high fevers. They would only stop once the change was complete. For after that, there was no real sleep anymore.
“Bein’ caught on high mountains, pelted with snow. Of the forests here bright with orange fire. Of you—” His voice broke. “Callin’ out my name only I’m no longer here to respond.”
“Babe,” Jaret said in a soft voice, not understanding why but knowing he was closer to this drakyl than he had ever been to anyone. “We’re going to get you cured. Then you can come out with me at night. We’ll keep the place predator free while your cousins slave in the sun. How does that sound?”
A sad attempt at a laugh left the other man’s throat. “Promise me you won’t leave until I’m gone?”
Fury swept along Jaret’s veins. Anger at the sun, the fact the man next to him was terrified, and at Davis for not explaining to the poor man earlier what he was. But mostly, he was furious at himself for not telling Aaron the truth. Leaning in, he placed his nose against Aaron’s. “I promise you,” he said in a deep growl, “that you are not going to die, Aaron Drakyl. I won’t let it happen.”
Thianna loves to write strong stories with even stronger heroes. While all of her books have an erotic overtone, it is the story that is the most important to her. “The story should be able to stand on its own. The erotic elements are an add-on.”
She enjoys writing about couples with kink, paranormal couples, and straight out strangeness. But more on that later… You can find her at mm.thiannad.com.
She also writes m/f under the name Thianna D.
