Personal Q&A at Loveletter COnvention Berlin

Post by TheFLuff on Sat Jun 02, 2012 11:16 am

Ok, here´s day one Q&A. She said, if more questions are coming in, I shall just grab her again tomorrow ^^

SHe´s an absolutely sweetheart with a smile for everybody and just gave me a hug at the end. How cute is that.
I got the feeling the worlds she writes are very very fleshed out and she moves in them and their rules with great ease. But heck, she really got the non digitur by heart. Spilled secrets? nope. No way *g*

Ok, so, here we go, todays answers.
Keep the questions coming.

Fluffy/Kat
How old are Vasic and Aden? Aden ~ 27 Vasic ~ 29 Judd is in the middle
The strength of Aden and Vasics abilities and Aden specialisation?
SHe didn´t have the absolute numbers, but Aden is somewhere in between 8 and 9 and Vasic is around 7 something.
We talked a little about their powers and Vasics true strength is not in the pure numbers, but in the intricacy. See below.

That is the one difference between him and other TKs: normal TKs have to concentrate, while Vasic is just instant at teleporting

As for Adens telepathic specialty: well, he´s very very subtle.

BTW, she confirmed, what we thought about the difference between raw power and the intricacy at which you can acess it. Judd is not only very powerful strength wise, but can use that power very subtly, same with Vasic, and basically the same with Aden and Walker.
She compared him to a heart surgeon. I like that *g*


How to pronounce Vasic? Vasic, since he spends alot of time, is pronounced like "basic", though the original pronounciation- wah-sitch - is correct too

How do name you characters?
Sometimes the name comes first, but usually, the character is written with a placeholder (e.g. xyz) and when the character is really fleshed out, Nalini grabs a list of baby names and looks for the one name, that will click. (which really makes me wonder, how my favorite Arrow got his name -.- that ones truly unusual)

Zaid will not play any active role, as he is truly dead.


Rageane

Question 1: In the Psy-Changeling world, what new pack will be introduced next? Hawks, Rats, or maybe one of the water-kind?
Most likely no new packs or changeling types will be introduced. There are enough already


Lulu2011

Next release date and who is it about?
The next Psy/changeling book will most likely come out May 28th 2012
And no, she wont give away, who it is about. And she can´t tell, when we will be told.
SHe wants to write the book and see, how it goes, before giving anything away

Jane

- If we will get to see the wolves from Russia -
as of Tangle of Need:
yes Smile very likely
BTW: Alexei is NOT Selenkas son.

When will we get Kaleb's book... and if his mate is a Psy or a changeling;
- "I´m sorry, I can´t say Nothing"
Will we see more Cat/wolf couples?
Not in the near future – at least not for the main couples, but since there is dating... well later maybe

BrokeStudent#23
(Who officially has been dubbed the person with the strangest questions Smile
Oh, just for the record "Siennas megaton explosion power? ALOT!"

1. How did World War I and II work out? Did the angels and vampires interfere, or just let the humans fight it out? I'm particularly curious as to Raphael's reaction to the Manhattan Project.

Not as it happen in "our reality".
The wars would have happened, but not as human on human, but between angels.
The Manhattan Project:
Well, the Archangels might have employed it and used it, but then... most likely not. AN atom bomb would have caused too much destrucion to "their" environment (the air)


2. What are the chances of any (inter)national space programs existing in the Hunter series? Sarah once said that Michaela wouldn't have minded setting back the clock a few millennia to the time where angels were worshiped as gods. On the other hand, I'm sure some angels are aware that the Earth can't sustain the growing human population for another 200 to 300 years. Tell this sci-fi geek the chances of Mars/Moon colonization, please? Smile


Very high!
Angels are very technologically savy. that´s something they would keep a good eye on and probably fund.

3. A potential touchy subject to some, but one I'm really curious about: Do any of the major religions we have today even exist in the Hunter series? Not just the major monotheistic religions, though this would be the most affected one as Judeo-Christian texts talk a lot about angels. But polytheistic religions like Hinduism and paganism could have been affected or influenced by angels in the ancient past. Would our religions still be present, independent of the existence of angels, or would religions in the Hunter series be near unrecognizable by us? And if Catholicism doesn't exist, then what kind of calendar / year count do they go by?


(The calender question, had her baffled for a moment)

Yes, with subtle distinctions. Will play a subtle role later in the series.
You willl get and answer to the calender question eventually, along with the rest of the religion questions. It will play a role in the background.


4. How about the origin of angels? Were they simply another species that evolved along side humans, and formed a (somewhat) symbiotic relationship along the way? Or do they have a more...mysterious origin?


It´s a species . Completely different biological species. Humans and Angels and procreate.
There is a back story, we will find out, along with the religious stuff.

Lulu2011

Can you add asking about the mating rules to your list?
I really want to know why Adria/Riaz can't have the mating bond, why this is different from Hawke's situation, did Riaz break the bond by rejecting Lisette, what did that scene with Dalton mean to communicate, is their choice involved?

First of all, Lulu, she was almost apologising, since her answer wouldn´t make you happy Wink

There ARE rules. They are fixed.
BUT:
"I like to keep things grey. I like to keep people disussing, there are alot of information in the two talks (Hawke and Dalton) to go around, and other bits in previous books.

Will they eventually mate?

The answer is in Daltons conversation somewhere, you only need to find it.

You´ll get the answers in the books. The bits and pieces are there.
You have to collect them and work through them to find it though.

Thanks, fluff! It is so cool you were able to ask her. This was you and her one on one? Not in a q & a session? That is amazing.

Regarding the mating rules, that's kind of what I was expecting. She's going to let us see it as we want. But she also said that the answers are in the two talks with Hawke & Dalton . . . so now I have to go back and re-read that stuff AGAIN lol!

Yeah, she´s pretty awesome. Did bribe her with German Chocolate though Smile

Right now I´m collecting all the question I forgot *g*

SSo you better pitch in, or it will be rather Arrow-centric

OK, so here are my follow up questions:

1. If the answers regarding the mating bond are in the book in bits and pieces, are we going to be left to decide what we believe indefinitely or will more information be revealed in future books to clarify?

2. Is Lisette going to become a recurring character and be involved with the SD pack and Riaz in the future, or is she going back to Europe with Emil?

3. Will we see all the un-mated SD lieutenants (Alexei, Mathias, Jem, Kenji, Tomas) paired up and happy eventually?

About the Human Alliance: Is Bowen going to have a more prominent role in the next book? Will he have his own book or novella?

Will Nalini write, after this arc ends, a book or a novella for Tiara and Tag(the forgotten)?

Boo Sad about Alexei not be Selenka's son Sad

Can you ask her if we find out what happened to Bowen's adoptive sister Lily please?

Do we ever find out who rescued Annie from the train wreck and why?

Can you ask her if the Ghost gets a HAE?

& please plead with her not to kill Vasic off Very Happy

ALright, got a 1 1/2 page list again and will logg off now. Need some sleep

It still is pretty Vasic-centric, but what the heck, I need my fix Very Happy

Fluff, if you check this, I have another question to pass on from a friend over at goodreads:

Will we get to meet Hawke and Sienna's baby before this story arc ends?

Ok, I have a question about the Guild Hunter series:

Will Elena's sister, Eveline, be part of the storyline, or will she have a book in the future? What about Zoe, Sarah's baby, in the future will she join the hunters, will Nalini write about her?

About Psy-changelig:

Who will the next novella be about? One is Cooper and Grace and who's the other?

Ok, thank you so much for doing this for us Fluff! Very Happy

I've got a question! Well several!

Who IS Keisha Bale? She's extremely loyal to the Arrow squad despite not being one of them, even going so far as to help them escape from the Psy-Net undetected. Why does she so such loyalty to the squad? And why is she, herself, so trusted among them? The Arrows seem to be a pretty tight group and I don't see them trusting just anyone, especially someone who is an outsider. Does she have a thing for Aden? ....... Razz

OK, Sorry, Lulu and Roxsan, missed your questions Sad
Today was totally exciting and I had SO much fun.
Met two girls feom Austria who did the most awesome video about the Psy/Chaneling series. Was present at the premier for Nalini.
They worked on it for two years and it was definately worth it.
As soon as it´s uploaded on youtube, they will post the link here and you just have to watch this!

Alright. Here´s part two of the Q&A. ANd I think, we got one or two really interesting answers.

Will we know more about Alice?
Yes, she will play a part, as the series goes on. See below


Was she awaked for a purpose, I mean, will she have a book or a novella or will she be part of the storyline, will she help Sienna?
Alice will be part o the storyline and we will definately know more about what happened to her

Will Nalini write another book about SnowDancer's lieutenants?
Second ARC

After she completes this arc, how many spinoffs will she write?
Open. It will go on, aslong as she thinks there are interesting stories to tell

Is there something liek Sub-Cardinal eyes? (Judd´s Gold speckles, Jon´s eyes, the boy Cardinal from the forgotten)

it´s for the forgotten, it´s genetic, due to their mixed heritage. Forgotten don´t have cardinals, but they have their own thing.
Judd´s is just... heck, he just got beautiful eyes


we will find out more about this and the forgotten in the next ARC most likely


Will we find out more about Vasics family?

Yes.
( I got the feelings, there is something of importance here)

And his last name?

this one got me a very secretive smile

Will it be important?

“insert evil Nalini laugh”

And meet Adens parents?

She tried the “but they´re dead, they blew up on that boat” approach.
I was just “stop kidding me”

So: We might.


And will Vasic get his own book dammit... or at least survive?

Wait and see. Wont have to wait very long,though (enter wild fangirl squee here... I´m not quite sure if I should be terrified...)


What about him and Aden? Romance? (after all they´re acting like an old couple already?

No, strong, emotional, intense bond. They´re more than brothers, they´re just like two halves, they have been through so much together, you just can´t really seperate them. Like twins, kind of

Will the telepathic bond play a major role at some point?

We will see more about it, what it is and how it works.

And what the heck did Aden mean with:
“We can´t trust him, ot after this is done” (CLARIFICATION please)
Aden was talking about trusting Vasic with his own life. Like, they need to watch him closely and don´t let him slip away type of thing

Is Vasic influenced by the Dark Mind?

Vasic is strongly connected to the Dark Mind as a TK and that definately plays a role in his state of mind. So yes, the Dark Mind is influencing him.
_____________________________________________________
Will Nikita and Anthony hook up?

Wait and see

And is there updated information on Tanique and if he gets his own book?

At this stage no. He´s not a character at the forefront.



How many pupcubs will there be, that Faith fell into such hysterics?

No answer, just a laugh and the "you don´t really expect me to answer that" look

1. If the answers regarding the mating bond are in the book in bits and pieces, are we going to be left to decide what we believe indefinitely or will more information be revealed in future books to clarify?

Yes, there might (and will) be more clarity. More pieces to the puzzle to put it together


2. Is Lisette going to become a recurring character and be involved with the SD pack and Riaz in the future, or is she going back to Europe with Emil?

Lisette is going back to Europe, with her husband ill and everything and there will be another liason

About the Human Alliance: Is Bowen going to have a more prominent role in the next book? Will he have his own book or novella?

He wasn´t originally scheduled. But he grown so much. At some stage in the future, there will be a story to tell. Especially since the Human Alliance has a more prominent role in the coming events.
And so far, we only saw them from the eyes of the others and she wants to go into the world of the Human Alliance and see the world through their eyes.


Will Nalini write, after this arc ends, a book or a novella for Tiara and Tag(the forgotten)?

She´d love to write a Novella, but there are so many couples, that deserve their own novella and everybody prefers a different novella, it´s a time thing.
But when there is time, she definately wants to write one.



Can you ask her if we find out what happened to Bowen's adoptive sister Lily please?

Yes. AS of Tangle of Need, this question should be answered. But we will see more of her, when we see the Human Alliance.


Do we ever find out who rescued Annie from the train wreck and why?

Yes and yes.
When I said, the possibilities of who it might have been are rather narrow and was hinting (like a sledgehammer-subtle) at Kaleb, and I got a definite feeling, we´re talking him.
I can´t really desribe her smile, but I got a feeling, this is something with some significance.


Can you ask her if the Ghost gets a HAE?

Wait and see
( and another "you don´t really expect me to answer that one" look)

& please plead with her not to kill Vasic off

I DID plead, and she seemed honestly touched.



Will Elenas Sister Eveline be part of the storyline or get a book?

she´s pretty young. Nalini doesn´t like to skip time. Depends on how long the series will be running
You will see her more though, since she´s connected to Elena. And the novel after Jason´s will be Raphael and Elena again.

What abut Zoe, Sarahs Baby? Will you write about her, perhaps her own book?

The same, though it would have been a really long running series for that ^^

If Cooper and Grace get the next novella, who will the other be about?
Nate & Tammy, Zach and Annie are in the book, together with Coop and Grace´s story and the fourth one.

The fourth one might be Walker and Lara, but it´s not yet decided, since tere are so many couples.
She got a file, where she keeps all the couples, that might get a novella.
Elias and his wife, Sing Liu and her mate and so on.

Fluff, thank you sooooo much! This is great. Thank you so much for pleading for Vasic too! I'm glad she knows there are lots of us who want to see him make it.

Makes me feel better that she's going to provide more clues and more clarity to the mating bond. I'm also really glad Lisette is going back to Europe with Emil and a new liason will be appointed.

I also never thought about her writing a new novella about Walker and Lara. Kind of fun. I hope it's about Gem and Kenji though.

Thanks Fluff:) This made my day!
I'm glad she's going give us some clarity re the mating rules. I'm looking forward to another Rapheal/Elena book.. I wasn't a huge fan of Dmitri and not sure how I feel about Jason.
I wish Nalini does a Nikita and Anthony novella..I love those two.

I really hope she chooses to do Jem and Kenji as the other novella. I like Walker and Lara but we've had a lot of them.

I'd actually like Jem and Kenji to have full novel..I really liked what they had going on. I think there more likely to get a novella though because Nalini will prob have the most popular characters for the last 2/3 books..I don't want Walker/Lara at all, they've had their moment.

But didn't Nalini say that if she ever wrote a book for the Ghost it would be the last? :O
