Hey all, Jess Haines has stopped by with the H&W Investigations gang to talk about all things supernatural. Or, maybe some things. Take it away, guys!
Hello there! Jess Haines here. I’m the author of the urban fantasy H&W Investigations series (Hunted by the Others, Taken by the Others and Deceived by the Others). I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to some of the cast—Shiarra Waynest, the lead character, Sara, her business partner, Chaz, her on-and-off werewolf boyfriend, Arnold, a mage who lends her a hand, and Alec Royce, a vampire Shiarra meets in the course of her adventures.
Shiarra is going to tell you a little bit about getting down and dirty with a supernatural. Over to you, Shia!
Shiarra: You’ve gotta be kidding me.
Chaz: ‘Fess up. You know it’s awesome.
Shiarra: I don’t think I’ve ever been this red.
Royce: Interesting how your skin tone nearly matches your hair. Was it so terrible?
Chaz: HEY. I’m right here, buddy.
Shiarra: You know, I’m just going to go over here—
Arnold: No, no, no. Doing these interviews was your idea. We’re going to keep it clean, and get through this together.
Sara: Not sure what the big deal is. It’s just sex.
Arnold: “Just” sex?
Sara: Oh, honey, come on. You know what I mean.
Arnold: I see I have some work to do…
Royce: Spend a night with me and I guarantee you will never forget it.
Shiarra: Maybe not, but I’d do my best to try.
Chaz: Hey, so, your turn. Let’s hear it.
Shiarra: Whose side are you on?!
Chaz: Mine. Let’s go. Out with it.
Royce: Louder, Ms. Waynest. I’m sure everyone else would like to hear what you have to say.
Shiarra: It was okay, damn it. Leave me alone.
Chaz: Just… okay?
Shiarra: Oh. My. God. I am not going to stroke your ego right now.
Royce: Or anything else tonight, it appears.
Shiarra: My love life is none of your damn business! Creepy leech!
Royce: And yet, here we are. I admit, I am consumed with curiosity. Did he not last long enough? Sought only his own pleasure, rather than yours?
Shiarra: Good god, someone explain to me how that is any of your business?!
Chaz: You know what? Yeah. I want to know, too. What’s wrong?
Shiarra: Fine. You really want to know?
Sara: I do.
Arnold: I do.
Royce: So do I.
Shiarra: Hate. You all. So much.
Shiarra: You could’ve lasted longer. That’s all. Happy now?
Royce: Color me surprised.
Chaz: Shut up! Bet you can’t even get it up, dead man.
Royce: Oh, no worries on that account. I’ve had enough time to perfect the art of adjusting the blood flow to applicable areas. For as long as it takes.
Arnold: I feel like my Other-mystique needs a wash.
Sara: Wait, seriously? Vamps can do that?
Royce: Among other things.
Shiarra: Excuse me. I’m going to go jump off the George Washington Bridge right now.
Royce: You know where to find me when you’re ready, Ms. Waynest. I’ll be waiting.
You can learn more about Shiarra and the rest of her friends in Hunted by the Others.
Thanks again for having me and the gang over, Insane Hussein!
