Please give a warm welcome to authors Eva Delaney and Mia Harlan creators of the Silver Springs universe.
Tell us a bit about yourselves…
Eva: Mia is married to a vampire and has a mini-vampire, who is very cute.
Mia: First of all, NOT a Vampire. But yes, our mini-MORTAL is very, very cute.
Eva: Lies! If he’s not a vampire, why do we never see photos of him?
Mia: It’s perfectly normal for people to dislike having their pictures taken. Plus, you’re a vampire, and there are pictures of you, sooo….
Eva: You’re projecting! Just because my fridge is full of jars of red liquid doesn’t make me a vampire. That is juice, not blood!
Mia: My Not a Vampire loves tomato juice, too. But he’s not the one who’s up at all hours of the night!
Eva: How would you know if I’m up all night unless you are too? We wrote Nephrite until 2am every night.
Mia: That was fun! And a good way to keep you from hunting humans.
What was your inspiration for Nephrite?
Mia: Eva and I came up with it on a park walk. It was freezing out and pitch dark, but that was the only way the two of us could get together during quarantine.
Eva: It sucks that the sun sets at 4pm in the winter, which was why it was dark on our walks.
Mia: *cough* vampire *cough*
Eva: You still have all your blood, don’t you?!
Mia: Friends don’t bite friends?
What are your plans for the Silver Springs universes?
Eva: To keep launching new series as long as people keep reading them.
Mia: I really hope people keep reading them. They’re so much fun to write!
Do you have any quirks while working?
Mia: Well, as you know, Eva writes all night long because VAMPIRE.
Eva: As you know, Mia also writes all night because she’s married to a vampire. She needs to be awake at night or she’ll never see him.
Mia: NOT a vampire. One quirk we had while writing Moonlit Nephrite was we’d take ten minute breaks and disappear for an hour and a half. But then it’s much harder for Eva to hunt down dinner.
Eva: I assumed those long breaks were because Mia had to recover after her husband bit her.
Mia: That kind of biting has nothing to do with vampires.
What are your hopes for the future?
Eva: To write in cafes again.
Mia: Definitely that. I miss it so much.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Eva: Publish sooner rather than later. I’ve been writing for most of my life, but only started publishing a few years ago. I wish I had started earlier.
Mia: Make friends with other authors! If we hadn’t done that, Silver Springs and Moonlit Falls wouldn’t exist.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
Eva: Thanks for your support! We only get to do this because of you.
Mia: Thanks everyone! And be sure to go to Eva’s Facebook group Eva Delaney’s Starship Crew and tell her to finally admit that she’s a vampire.
Eva: While you’re on Facebook, visit Mia’s group Harlan’s Harem and help her end her delusions about her vampire husband.
