This post is for all the readers that want to ask Clare a question about Once Bitten. Usually I come up with a few questions for the author but this month I'd like to try something a little bit different. It's really easy: Just post a question in the comments for Clare to answer. Voila!
Here are my questions:
1. Once Bitten contained more than a few pages that dealt with the goth scene- House of Usher, Macabre Factor, the private ceremony etc. The Goth world is often used in vampire fiction and it is always interesting to read how authors choose to use it. I'd like to know how much, and what sort of research went into those portion of the book? How did you decide on the design aspects and names for House of Usher?
2. How do you decide on names for your characters? Do any of the characters represent people you know in real life?
Now it's your turn!
