Interview
1. 1. If you had to change the name of Velicious, what would you change it to?
Honestly, I went through many names when trying to decide and nothing seemed to fit. I wouldn’t change the name of Velicious. I love it and I think it fits the theme of the book.
2.  If you had a pseudonym, what would it be?
Well, technically I’m using one which is my author name. Shelique is my real name and I’m using my husband’s last name which I haven’t technically claimed, or changed when we got married. I know, not very creative, but hey, it works XD
3. Is the cover of Velicious the one you always imagined, or would you change it?
Omg, the cover! Part one, I changed the cover two other times before settling on the one that’s currently on my website and amazon. Goodreads has an old cover. This new updated cover for Velicious Part one and Two I love completely and I wouldn’t change it now.
4. When did you decide you wanted to write?
I think like many authors, I always had a crazy imagination. I didn’t think about taking it seriously for a while because people discouraged me against that road in life. I was taught to do something realistic, something like being a nurse, or accounting, but doing what everyone claimed to be the real job, for me wasn’t that great. 
I finally stumbled into writing when a friend of mine suggested that I take some classes and see where it takes me. That was six years ago and it took me five years to write Velicious Part One and Velicious Part Two took me less than a year. I decided that I was going to do what makes me happy.
5. How often per week do you write?
I try to write two hours in the morning, before the kids wake up.
6. Do you write on a typewriter, computer or on paper?
Computer and sometimes my notepad.
7.   What is the hardest thing about writing?
For me, I like to toss in a lot of things. I get excited and my mind goes all crazy, and then to organize my mind, so I create something that makes sense is hard for me. I need to control my thoughts and take one step at a time. 
8. Do you ever get writer's block? If you do, how do you overcome it?
Yes, I take a break from that story and work on another piece where those characters are talking to me. Or I just relax and don’t write for a few days. Sometimes your mind is telling you to relax and take a break. Listen to your body.
9. Are you planning on doing a book-trailer, or is one already out?
I have one out for Velicious Part One, it was made when Velicious first came out and it was with the original book cover. You can find it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K2NR8RPacI
I still like it, a year and a half later. I want to have it redone with the new book cover.
10. What is your favourite quote from Velicious?
Oh my, I have so many. Especially scenes with Dante and Justice. 
From Velicious Part One: “His gaze was full of an unquenched appetite, a hunger with no purpose.” I tend to use that line on a lot of promotional items.

Justice Labelle always had her life perfectly planned.

Her goals were to graduate from University and get into law school.

Then one day, Justice tried to kill herself.

Well, not her technically. It may have been her body, but those actions weren’t intentional and the suicidal thoughts were not hers. Or, so she keeps telling her therapist and family. Justice is afraid she’s losing her mind and just wants to forget everything. But when her best friend is murdered, another one is being mind-screwed by a Vampyre, and her ex is back in town, looking as scrumptious as ever and very suspicious, maybe she isn’t all that crazy!
