Imp Series Q&A

A Demon Bound Cover*This  blog post will move to a FAQ page in a few weeks*

I’ve gotten a lot of questions about various books in the Imp Series, and thought it might be fun to put together a sort of FAQ blog post.  If I don’t cover something you’ve been dying to ask, please put it in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer it without spoilers.

  • Why isn’t there more explicit sex in the Imp Books?  They seem pretty tame in this area compared with other urban/contemporary fantasy novels.

Don’t kill me, but in my first draft of the early books, there was FAR more sex, and the scenes were more explicit.  Elven Blood, in particular, had quite a few explicit scenes between Sam and Wyatt that were toned down and/or removed.  Sam is pretty crass, and between the violence and the huge amount of cursing she does, I felt explicit sex would just put the books over the top.

That’s not saying there won’t be more spice in the last book.  I haven’t decided that one yet – and it will depend on the overall tone/flow of the book.  A few of the spin-offs will have a higher heat level.  Look for the series including Amber (Demons of Desire will be out summer 2014), and Leethu’s book (2015 TBD).  Those sex demons won’t let me put the lid on the steamy stuff!

  • Will there be audio editions?  Editions in other languages?

A Demon Bound is already available in audio, and I’m hoping to have Satan’s Sword and Elven Blood in audio by the end of 2014.  I do plan to publish audio editions of all my books since I realize lots of “readers

  1. Hi. Thank you for entertaining me with the world you created. Somewhere along the way, I missed what happened in Chicago when Wyatt traveled there for a meeting and Dar needed a vacation in Angel of Chaos. Next thing I know, Dar has an angel partner and Wyatt and Sam are not really together in Kingdom of Lies. I’m glad another reader asked about Nyalla and the ghoul, so I just finished Stolen Souls. Is there another offshoot I missed or did my book skip ahead when I fell asleep one night reading?

  2. Hi. I am up to Kingdom of lies in the Imp series and they keep referring back to Nyalla and the ghoul incident and for the life of me I cannot remember anything about that . Can you please tell me what book was that in.

  3. You always say Sam is just a imp but you never really explain where in the demon hierarchy a imp is. Also what is Dar?

    • Hierarchy in Hel is calculated on an individual basis, but certain demon types tend to cluster around the same level. Imps are in the lower third – above the Low and above the sex demons. Imps can pack a significant punch power-wise, but they like to keep it hidden so they’re underestimated and gain an advantage in a fight – so they tend to be ranked lower than they probably should be. It’s one of the reason’s Sam was so irritated to be stuck with the Iblis sword – kind of hard to fly under the radar with a big target like that on her back!

      As for Dar – well, you’ll just have to wait for Three Wishes (his story), which comes out late, fall to see!

      • Thanks you for writing me back you have made my week. Your answer was beyond anything I expected. Thanks you again

  4. Yeah I wouldn’t mind if you got to Book 12, I love Sam, this is by far my favorite book series 🙂 writers tend to make the lead female weak, and even when their not they ALWAYS need help, I love how Sam always gets herself out of trouble, although I do LOVE Greg, probly the best male lead ever! So sexy 🙂 I really don’t mind when he saves same.. Its just sexy 🙂 I like the mystery with him 🙂

    • The difficult thing with having a hero like Gregory in the books is that there isn’t much he can’t conquer with a wave of his hand. Sam’s pretty good at getting herself into and out of trouble on her own. I especially wanted her to have talents that were different and complimented his – and have her save the big powerful angel once in a while!

    • Sam will have brief cameos in a few of the later spin-off novels. It’s difficult to have her make an appearance since she tends to steal the limelight – such an attention-hog! She’ll pop in where it makes sense in the plot, but she won’t be in every book.
      Stolen Souls and Demons of Desire both take place while she’s still stuck in Hel, so although she’s mentioned, Sam won’t be in those two.
