Talking Tall – Yeira from Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic by Sam Cheever


talldarkapocalyptic3D My heroine from Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic recently gave an interview to Sabrina Michaels from the Paranormal News Network. It was a fun and informative interview and I hope you enjoy it!

Hello everyone! my name is Sabrina Michaels, Paranormal News Network, and today I’m speaking with Yeira Ruth of Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic fame. This captivating story is part of a box set of 10 wonderful stories from bestselling paranormal and contemporary romance authors. Yeira is a fascinating individual with a unique set of problems in TD&A. Prepare yourself. What follows is a brutally honest interview:

SM: Hello, Yeira. Just to get things started, can you describe yourself for the readers in four words?

Yeira: Four words, huh? Well, if you asked the Sorceri hunter…

SM: That’s Audie Kord? The hero in the book, right?

Yeira: That’s him. His four words for me would be: Infuriating, monster, zombie, painintheass.

SM: Painintheass, heh, very good. But I wanted to know how you saw yourself.

Yeira: Okay, how’s this? Strong, determined, magical, and dead.

SM: Dead? As in zombie?

Yeira: (glares at reporter) Why can’t anybody get this right? I’m not a zombie. I’m a reborn…sort of.

SM: Why sort of? And what’s the difference?

Yeira: The sort of part you have to read the book to find out. The difference? Only everything? Zombies are stumbling, bumbling mountains of stinky goo. Reborns are magical creatures who have been reanimated at a much higher level. Our maker is supremely skilled in the death magics. Nobody can create a reborn like the dark witch.

SM: Fascinating. Okay, that brings me to my next question. Why should a reader enter your world? Entice me.

Yeira: (snorts) Entice you? Into my world? You did get the apocalyptic part, right? It’s ugly in my world. At least a third of the 20 worlds have been decimated. People are living underground because there are no governing bodies and lawlessness prevails. Zombies and irradiated monsters roam the earth, eating people.

SM: (frowns) Funny, I’m not feeling enticed.

Yeira: I’ve never been one to say I told you so, but…

SM: Right. Let’s move on. What’s really special about your world? Delight me.

Yeira: (chuckles, stares at reporter for a minute) Oh, you’re serious? Have you suffered a head injury recently? Maybe you’ve sucked too much sulfur? See above.

SM: (clearly flustered) Okay, this isn’t going well, is it? Let’s lighten things up. Demi-cup, sports bra, or 60s freedom front?

Yeira: Definitely 60s freedom front. I don’t like layers because I need to be able to move in a battle.

SM: But aren’t you worried about sag?

Yeira: Sabrina, I have like, maybe a week to live. Saggy boobs are NOT in my top 10 list of things to worry about.

SM: Right, that makes sense. Thank you for stopping by today, Yeira. It’s been an…erm…pleasure talking with you.
