A. This book actually started out as a really bad pun. I was at lunch with my sister, and we were discussing vampire books. I'd started writing a book about angels, but something wasn't 'gelling'. She suggested I write about vampires, and made a joke about vampires being blood starved. I couldn't let her have the last word (never!) and so I made a joke back about how they would be 'sex starved' too. And then it sort of hit me that maybe some vampires needed sex to survive, instead of blood. And that, of course, made it not a vampire after all, but a succubus. IDEA! The rest sort of spiraled out from there. (So much for careful brilliance!)
