Three Quick Questions: Author Aldrea Alien

Today I'm thrilled to have author Aldrea Alien here to answer three quick questions about her book, Golden Dawn.

1. If your characters were on a reality TV show, what would the show be? (Bonus question: How would each of your characters act on the show?)
I think any kind of reality TV show would quickly become some sort of terrible mesh of survival and animals attack for the camera crew. Not because of Herald, as he'd likely be intrigued and confused with the idea of a camera and Acarna would be high as a kite on having a corporeal form. It's Stefan who would be the trouble. He'd turn the entire episode into one of people being picked off by a seemingly invisible creature.

2. What is your favorite genre to write and why?
I'm tempted to say fantasy, because a lot of them are, but 90% are romances at heart. I guess I'm just a sop who loves to think up ways for people to meet and fall in love... You know, eventually, after I put them through a series of terrible happenings because I'm also a terribly cruel mother to my characters.

3. Describe your book in three words.
Vampire Loves Sunlight.
For more info on Aldrea and the book:
Family and blood.

After 1100 years, these simple words mean everything to Herald. His life has been ruled by keeping his siblings safe, keeping them from becoming prey whilst feeding on the weaker. His failures have been many and measured by those he has lost. People like his twin brother.
There has always been another enemy.
Just who the enemy is comes into question when Herald meets the dangerous, angelic creature he is to guard. Wondering where his true loyalties lie is a dangerous thought. No matter whether he chooses family over the heart, it will mean death.
Only the right choice will ensure the life taken is not his.

Author Bio:
Born and raised in New Zealand, Aldrea Alien lives on a small farm with her family, including a menagerie of animals, most of which are convinced they're just as human as the next person. Especially the cats.

She discovered a love of crafting other worlds at the age of twelve when she first conceived the idea of The Rogue King. Since that that fateful day, she hasn't found an ounce of peace from the characters plaguing her mind, all of them clamouring for her to tell their story first.

It's a lot of people for one head.
