SDCC12: Exclusive Interview with Tessa Gratton, Author of Blood Magic

At the recent San Diego Comic Con our staff had the opportunity to interview a bunch of amazing authors. Up next on that list is Tessa Gratton, author of Blood Magic and upcoming The Blood Keeper, which releases on August 28th.

Tessa created a wonderfully dark, gothic world with these books. Haven’t heard of them? Here’s what Blood Magic is about:

This page-turning debut novel will entice fans who like their paranormal romances dark and disturbing. It’s a natural next-read for fans of Stephanie Meyer, Carrie Jones, and Becca Fitzpatrick. But instead of mythical creatures, blood magic has everything to do with primal human desires like power, wealth, and immortality. Everywhere Silla Kennicott turns she sees blood. She can’t stop thinking about her parents alleged murder-suicide. She is consumed by a book filled with spells that arrives mysteriously in the mail. The spells share one common ingredient: blood, and Silla is more than willing to cast a few. What’s a little spilled blood if she can uncover the truth? And then there’s Nick—the new guy at school who makes her pulse race. He has a few secrets of his own and is all too familiar with the lure of blood magic. Drawn together by a combination of fate and chemistry, Silla and Nick must find out who else in their small Missouri town knows their secret and will do anything to take the book and magic from Silla.

The lovely Tessa sat down with me for a thirty minute interview where we talked the world of her books, historical magic systems, writing, her interesting life, her future series, and tons of other amazing and wonderful things. Enjoy!
