Look Who’s Going To RT: Lisa Kessler

Lisa KesslerCan you introduce yourself to my readers a little?
Hey there! *waving* I’m Lisa Kessler and I write Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. (I’ve even published some horror short stories!)

I’m also a professional singer and music often weaves its way into my books. I love meeting readers so RT is always a highlight of the year for me!

I can be found at: Website | Facebook | Facebook (Night series) | Facebook (Moon series) | Twitter | GoodReads | Pinterest

Can you introduce us to the world(s) that you have created?
My Night Series (Night WalkerNight DemonNight Child) is just finishing up this year. If you enjoy vampires and shape shifters, the Night Series is a bit of both. Night Walkers are similar to vampires but they’re descended from the Mayans. They each have a spirit animal and can shift into that animal at will. If you enjoy dark paranormal romance with high stakes, the Night Series is for you!

My Moon Series (MoonlightHunter’s Moon) revolves around a werewolf pack in Reno, NV. They’re very contemporary with alpha heroes and a strong family bond. The books have the pacing of urban fantasy and the heat of paranormal romance.

I also have a stand alone novel, Beg Me to Slay which takes place in San Diego and features a very hot Demon Slayer… :) If you loved the Buffy & Angel TV series, or Supernatural and Sleepy Hollow, then this is the book for you! :)

Will this be your first RT or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
I’ve been to RT 3 times and my best advice is leave yourself plenty of time for fun. My first RT I had this crazy color-coded schedule for myself and I scrambled to get to everything. Halfway through I realized I was missing out because I was stressed instead of having fun! LOL

So allow yourself to have a good time and don’t over schedule… :)

Are you speaking on any panels during RT? Are there any you are looking forward to or are planning on attending?
I’ll be busy at this year’s RT!

On Wednesday I’ll be dealing at a table during Entangles’ Candy and Spoons party… Super fun!

Thursday I’m on a panel talking about promoting your books and also on a reader panel to talk VAMPIRES! My favorite! LOL

And Friday I’m participating in the Team Vampire vs. Team Shifter! Since I have one series in each I guess I can play for both sides… :)

Is there anything in particular you’re looking forward to or experiencing while in New Orleans?
I’m hoping to sneak out for a ghost tour. If you’ve never been to New Orleans the ghost tours, voodoo tours and vampire tours are super fun!

If someone were wanting to meet up with you at RT, who should they look for?
I’m usually pretty easy to find and some days my dork flag flies higher than others, so follow the laughter… Life’s too short not to have fun, right? Hope to see you at RT!

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
