1). Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m an indie author and owner of MVmedia, LLC, a publishing company specializing in science fiction and fantasy based on African/African Diaspora culture, history and traditions. I’ve written and published 21 novels and edited/co-edited seven anthologies.
2). Who is your favorite vampire author?
Actually, I don’t have one. But I must mention L. A. Banks for everything she did for the genre and others.
3). If you had the choice, would you be a vampire?
No. I don’t think I would like the taste of blood.
4). Who is your favorite vampire?
Blade, hands down.
5). What do you like the most about Slay?
I’m always a fan of anthologies and books that feature Black main characters and support Black authors. I’m also a fan of Nicole Smith. Who can say no to her?
6). What inspired you to write Bloodlines ?
I was inspired by my author friends. A lot of them are horror authors, so I decided to try my hand at it. I wanted to see if I could add a different spin on the vampire mythology.
7). Tell us a bit about your story.
Bloodlines is a story about a genetically engineered vampire who discovers what being a ‘true’ vampire really means.
8). What do you hope accomplish with Bloodlines?
I hope it entertains readers first and foremost, and I hope it adds a different spin to vampire mythos.
9). Will there be more stories about Telisa?
There could be. If there is a Slay II and I’m invited, then yes.
10). How do we keep up with all things Milton Davis?
You can check me out on Instagram at @obadoro, twitter as @Thegriot, and I’m on Facebook as well. I also have an author website (www.miltonjdavis.com), and there’s my publishing website, www.mvmediaatl.com
11). What advice would you give to Slay readers about this anthology?
It’s hot! Find a comfortable seat, fix your favorite beverage, then sit back and be amazed! Oh yeah, and spread the word.
