Featured Interview With David Chylde
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I'm from Waycross, Ga., and now I wait tables at Tin Lizzy's in Lawrenceville, Ga. No pets. I've spent most of my time in downtown Atlanta.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
The sixth grade. I wrote a weekly creative writing paper.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
T.A. Pratt, Poppy Z. Brite, Caitlin R. Keirnan. I mostly read urban fantasy. Robert McCammon, an eighties horror writer, really inspires me.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Whiskey, Blood, and Magic is my debut urban fantasy novel from Kellan Publishing. It centers around hard rock/heavy metal vocalist Jake Reece who is a bartender at Atlanta midtown bar Medusa's. When he accepts a demon's proposition he takes a wild ride through the dark world of magic, chased by bounty hunters who want the coveted Dual Serpent Amulet.
I always wanted to be a rock singer so this character is my chance to live out the life of metal vocalist on his way to being a star–the party life, girls, groupies. This book took years and years of writing and rewriting. Much of it comes from my experience in the nightclub/adult entertainment business in downtown Atlanta. The book is about taking a dark tour of Atlanta–dark city life-but still you read about the Fox Theater, Marta, popular areas like Buckhead and Little Five Points. My hook is: Rock singer Jake Reeces faces succubus Ariel Celique with the help of three strippers who lives double lives as hunters in magic.
In this book, rock singer Jake Reece falls prey to a demon when he accepts a “flesh ride” spell that allows him to feel the carnal pleasure of others through spectral flight. Psychics in the world of magic sense his bondage, and he finds himself hunted by a clan led by succubus Ariel Celique, who needs his magic to defeat the demon in a game orchestrated by spurned angels. Jake approaches stripper\bounty hunter Marci Stone and goes through his Awakening into magic, bringing his power out of dormancy. With Marci and her two stripper sidekicks in magic, he battles the clan. A solo investigation then leads him to a gothic mansion in North Georgia where the succubus throws decadent dance raves and plies her sex drug “Bacchus,” which is running riot in the Atlanta club scene. There Jake Reece discovers she wants to keep him eternally as a sex slave. He manages to escape with Marci’s help and then plays a big show with his band Lost Angel. Record contracts are being offered amongst wild partying, but first the gang must rally together to return to the mansion and trounce their nemesis.
