AISFP 323 — Faith Hunter

Kristi chats with USA Today & New York Times Bestseller author Faith Hunter. For those of you who don’t follow contemporary fantasy, Faith is the author of The NYT Bestselling Jane Yellowrock series, about a skin walker of Cherokee decent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living…

I’m not going to lie folks, Faith is one of my all time favourite UF authors – ask Brent, I’ve been talking about this interview for months.

In this episode, Kristi chats with Faith Hunter about:

  • Diverging from the usual suspects in urban fantasy
  • Getting the details right when it comes to firearms and damage
  • How urban fantasy has changed with social media in recent years
  • Switching genres from mystery to urban fantasy
  • Bonus: Rob and I spend ten minutes in the intro discussing the Cassandra Clare/Sherrilyn Kenyon lawsuit and why authors should be following.

You can find Faith at her website, on Facebook, and @HunterFaith

And in the never-before-published “Bound No More,” Jane welcomes a visit from Molly and her daughter, Angie, who is about to prove she’s the most powerful witch in Everhart history….

From the Big Easy to the bad bayou, from the open road to a vampire’s lair—with Jane Yellowrock, it’s always a given: have stakes, will travel.

Shadow Rites (Jane Yellowrock 10)

ShadowRitesSlaying vampires is child’s play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans’ supernatural players is another story…
Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her doorstep. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep.

A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit…undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies. Now it’s up to Jane to find out who kept the vampire hidden for so long and why, because the incident could tip already high supernatural tensions to an all-out arcane war.

    Very cool hearing Rob on the show and with the plan to get him on more to help with Brent’s absence. Keep it up!

  3. Great interview! So glad you asked the questions you did about publishing now vs. “then”, why Faith made Jane who she was, why she’s so careful with her weapons research and so much more. Liked it so much I’ve tweeted, G+’d and shared on FB hoping other fans will tun in. Thanks!
