    Happy Halloween! Guest Author – J.R. Ward

ward_head.jpgHappy Halloween! It’s a special day for us at Romance Novel TV. New York Times best selling author J.R. Ward is with us.  Her Black Dagger Brotherhood series is one of our favorites and we’re certainly not alone.  Not by a long shot. Her books fly off the shelves.  Her newest book, The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider’s Guide is no exception. This is truly and inside look at the Brothers, the mythology, the world and yes, even into the author. I think it’s a terrific, courageous and daring book and I couldn’t put it down. Just ask Maria who repeatedly tried to rip it out of my hands.

I got a chance to ask J.R. some questions about Halloween and the Brothers. So sit back, and read on.

Oh, before you do, one more thing. Recently J.R. sat down for a video interview with us and gave us the inside look at the Insider’s Guide. So when you get a chance, check out our home page for part one of an exclusive video interview with J.R. We’ll be posting a new one each week for several weeks.

RNTV: Do you have a favorite childhood memory of Halloween?

J.R.: I do and it’s a little sappy, I’m afraid.  See, my father used to take me out for Halloween trick or treating (my mom stayed home to hand out the candy), and we always went with friends of the family.  I have this wonderful memory of myself and two buddies in our costumes, racing down to a house that was at the bottom of a steep incline. We even had gold teeth, if you are looking for set of diamond teeth check out these diamond grillz for sale. There were lit pumpkins along the way and the porch lights were on, but the family had a dog that I was afraid of for some reason: whenever I rode my bike down that street, I remember I always stayed away from that address.

On that night, though, I wasn’t scared.

Even though they had that dog (I believe it was a bulldog,) as I shot down to the door, I was free to just be happy about candy, candy and more candy because my father was waiting for me at the very top of that driveway, watching over me.  With him there, I was absolutely, positively sure that no matter what I would be safe.  See, my father was a superhero, capable of besting bulldogs and bullies and mashers and every Freddy and Jason who could have been hiding in all the shadows.  He was the one who came home every night in a suit and a tie, looking Presidential and carrying a briefcase that had his initials embossed in gold on it.  He was the one who listened to me go on and on about what I had done at school over dinner.  He was the one who took me into his office on the weekends, letting me play with Xerox machines and pens and typewriters while he worked.  He was the procurer of Christmas trees, maker of real, homemade hot chocolate, driver of beautiful cars and elegant escort of my beautiful mother.

Plus he could water-ski.

Back to the memory… I don’t remember what I got as a result of that doorbell ring or what costume I was wearing or even how old I was.  What I do remember was not worrying about the scary dog while I landed more candy in my pillow case and came back up that driveway to my father.  At the top, I put my small hand in his and together we went to the next house and the next house and the next house.  With him beside me, I was warm against the cold night, and I wasn’t scared of how dark it was, and I knew that even though I wasn’t sure exactly how to get back to our home, we were not lost.

Because he was there.

ward_insider.jpgRNTV: If you could have magical powers which ones would you choose and why?

J.R.: Gotta go with invisibility!  Very handy if you have a wardrobe malfunction or embarrass yourself in public… like maybe if you happen to bust up a table in front of a group about 150 fellow writers at say, the RWA N.J. chapter’s conference.

Don’t look at me like that.  I didn’t mean to hurt it!  I pace when I talked and it was in my path and… ugh.  Next question.

RNTV: Who do you think is the master of horror when it comes to scary movies?

J.R. Sam.  Raimi.

RNTV: What will the Brothers be doing this Halloween?

J.R.: Well, they’re all off… so I venture they’ll be *blushes* doing a lot of things that are private with their shellans.  Although that being said, I can totally see Butch and V going on a prank offensive like you read about.  I happen to know Fritz came home with a case- A CASE- of Silly String.  S’all I’m saying.

RNTV: Do you think Phury is going to have his hands full with the Chosen this Halloween?

J.R.: I think it’s going to be quiet up north because they don’t celebrate Halloween!  Maybe he’ll bring them down to the mansion later tonight, though… in which case, Fritz will be busting out the fire extinguishers in case Layla decides to try and cook LOLOL

RNTV: What special plans do you have for Halloween this year?

J.R.: Giving out candy!  I love the little ones in their costumes!  It’s one of my favorite things ever.

RNTV: You’re out trick or treating and you get bag after bag of candy corn; what do you do?  (I’m asking all the authors this question, it’s not a trick question, it’s a biased question. You see, I don’t think Candy Corn should be classified as a candy or a treat – in my opinion it’s more like a punishment). By the way, what is your favorite Halloween Candy?

J.R.: I think I’d melt the bastards down and try my hand at a Food Channel challenge kind of thing- like molding something out of the stuff!  Cuz it ain’t edible.  I mean, I haven’t had any in years, but I remember it making my teeth sing and not in a good way.  As for my favorite candy, I don’t eat chocolate anymore, but I can tell you, when I did?  Gimme M&Ms or a huge block of Hershey’s.  Look, mass-produced American chocolate KOs the frilly, fancy sh**.  Straight up.

RNTV: Thanks so much J.R. We hope you have a terrific Halloween.

J.R. will be stopping by a few times today, and in the meantime I’m wondering, are you doing anything special today?

    and Oh to be a fly on that mansion wall (and to not be hit by silly string) lol

    Have a great Halloween, I hope it’s not to cold out for all the trick ‘o treaters, tonight I’ll be at a costume party with friends. Of course the theme this year is masks. even if you don’t have a costume, just wear a mask 😉

    Hi JR,
    Invisibility would be a great power to have. Telekinesis and teleportation would be my choices. I don’t have any plans for Halloween, so I’ll probably be watching tv at home.

    This Interview and the first part of your TV clip made my day! Thank you for that! 🙂
    I really find your description of your father and how he made you feel very touching – it sort of reminds me of Zsadist and wonder, if his growing abilities and qualities as a father are somewhat connected to your own father. I mean, yeah, they are their own characters and do what they do and are what they are because that`s who they are but still … .
    However, when it comes to that giving, loving and secure feeling Zsadist just pops up in my mind. Love him!

    And good question above: do you dress in costume for giving out treats?

    Love, Anita

    My father always took my sister and I out for Halloween with these huge pillow cases! No little plastic pumkins for us. We would be gone for hours and he wouldn’t let us rest, because we had to hit every house for miles!
    At the end of the night my parents, sister and I would go through the candy, McDonalds gift certificates and coins to see what we got. We had candy for months.
    What is Z and Bella going to dress us Nalla for Halloween? Do the brothers like to get dressed up?

    Hi, JR! What a sweet memory about your father. There’s just something about a little girl and her daddy, isn’t there?

    My dad would take my sisters and I trick or treating, too…..complete with pillow cases! LOL! Oh, the wealth of goodies those things could hold! I made my kids’ trick or treat bags–not as big as a pillow case, but they can still hold a lot of loot.

    Zsadist is my absolute fave Brother, and his love for Nalla just melts my heart.

    In a few hours, my niece and I are driving to Birmingham. We’ll be attending their local RWA chapter’s luncheon tomorrow, where Christina Dodd is speaking. Yay!

    Happy Halloween, everyone, and stay far away from the candy corn. Yuck!

    I love J.R. I got to meet her the past 2 years at Lora Leigh’s RAW! She is so tall, lol this year she shrunk down with me so we look about the same height lol, but she’s a good foot and a half taller than me and so pretty 😉 I also discovered that she wrote under the name Jessica Bird last year, so I made sure to bring Heart of Gold with me for her to sign 🙂 I wonder though, which she likes writing more, the romance or the BDB books?

    Hi, J.R., and welcome back to RNTV! Thanks for helping us celebrate Halloween! 😀

    I’ll be taking my kids out trick-or-treating tonight, so no scary movies for us. They are so excited!

    C’mon people, isn’t there anyone else that likes candy corn besides me?!?!

    JR~I’ll definitely stop by all day to hear more of whatever you have to say about the BROTHERS. Maybe V & the Cop have shared with you already about their scheme to make Rhage dance again! LOVE your memory of that Trick-Or-Treat with your DAD. Me too ~ I’ll also stay in to give out candy tonight~It’s an excellent plan! Thanks for the BDB World!

    Sam Raimi! Good answer! Good answer! 😉

    That was a lovely Hallowe’en memory…thank you for sharing it!

    And if we’re allowed a question: Can mhis be learned/taught, or is it a you-have-it-or-you-don’t ability? I saw a black Hummer the other day and thought it’d come in handy when the Beast goes skateboard and V’s not around.

    Hope you have a GREAT day…MUUAH!

    OMG I’m writing today (‘cuz Rehv’s final is due in like 14 days EEK!) and I have decided to do it in front of AMC’s Michael Meyer’s marathon (I’ve seen the movies so many times I can totally concentrate through the slow parts.) But I have to say, I wana go ghost hunting with Ann.

    *waves hi everyone!!*

    SOTEH I knew you and I got along for a good reason *knuckle taps* and to everyone who’s a daddy’s girl can I get a hellyeah? As for mhis, V just figured it out himself- and is the only Brother who has it. As you’ll see in Rehv’s LOVER AVENGED, he and Xhex have a version of it.

    Crystal, honestly I like both, I truly do. But if I had to pick, it would be the Brothers. There’s just something so raw and fascinating about their stories.

    Anita, I don’t *sigh* I’m a buzz kill. I guess I never feel right in costumes- although when my mom and I do our homemade Christmas cookies, we deliver them to family wearing Santa claus hats. That’s as close as I get!

    KatieBabs, the Brothers are dressing up, but I think they have put Nalla in a skeleton onsie the bones of which glow in the dark 😀

    I don’t generally do horror movies, but Sam Raimi does some great ones! I love that memory. Reminds me (only because it’s a halloween memory) of the time my mom took me trick-or-treating and we’re walking around the neighborhood, already with more candy than I could eat in a year, and come to this one house. I go up and ring the doorbell and say “TRICK OR TREAT!! :D” And he says “Trick.” then proceeds to look at me and wait. I was just lost. No clue what to do. Then he laughed, gave me candy and we left.

    Anyways, sorry about the sidebar. Just 14 days until Rehv! O.O I’m so excited!! Any tidbits you wanna give? 😉 Or more info on George – LOL.

    Have a great Halloween JR! Muah!!

    JR, Thanks SOOO much for the BDB. The Brothers are the most! Your memory of halloween was so nice. I cannot wait for the next book….I was just introduced to them a couple of weeks ago and I read them all in a frenzy marathon. I love Z’s story in the IG too…so sweet. Have a great time passing out candy tonight!

    Hello J.R. – I just read your announcement regarding “COVET” at the Board, you SURE know how to deliver AMAZING TREATS!!! 😀
    I`m really happy to hear that we all will get so much more of your wonderful, creative and touching and yeah bada** books! I hope we get a bit more information about it soon – maybe in the upcoming anthology?? *crossing fingers* or at least in your forums? Pleeease!

    I`m really excited!

    Oh, and sharing your cookies with family and friends makes up for not dressing up in costumes. But the Santa hat is a plus for sure!

    By the way: I`m with vthongd, what`s doing with Butch&V this Halloween?! 😉

    *hehe* totally understandable, Angela_Yvette, we all just CAN`T WAIT and I personally wouldn`t mind reading Rehv in two weeks rather than waiting for more than six months!! *aargh*

    And I LOVE the idea of NALLA IN A SKELETON ONSIE, too, Anne_Hedonia. I`d like to see that, for sure!!!

    Hi AY!

    And Anita I couldn’t keep the secret any longer! The new series is in paperback out October 2009! COVET: A Novel of the Fallen Angels is the first of the books and let’s just say it’s all about angels and Harleys and evil and redemption. The tag line’s Destiny’s a witch and then you die… but love always brings you back. I’m reallly excited! At this point we’re going to be designing a whole new website and there’ll be another message board (which will link to the BDB). I start on the book in 2 weeks!

    Ms Ward, your memory of your father made me cry, more than a little. What a wonderful, wonderful memory!

    On the candy corn: YES!!!!! *pumping fist* it ain’t candy!

    On the M&Ms: that’s what I’m talking about!

    Perfect costume for Nalla! Thanks for giving us the Brother’s. They’re all so lovable in a bada** way 🙂 Looking forward seeing what is in store for the rest of the day *rubs hands together*. Thanks for taking the time while trying to wrap things up with Rehv!

    OMG!!! JR, am I reading this correctly??? There’s a new series COVET!!! I think I just died and went to reader’s heaven. How absolutely fabulous, fantastic, amazing. Angels, evil, redemption, harleys – I’m there. Oh yeah.

    JR – your story about rememberances of Halloween and your father is close to home for me. I consider my father my hero – he is the greatest person I know.

    As for trick or treat – well, the kids in my neighborhood have grown up – so last year I had sooooo much candy left over, well, let’s just say, it didn’t go to waste, because I enjoy a twizzler and snickers bar with the best of them.

    OMG – a new series! Angels, Harleys, Evil and Redemption… oh my! A new website, new message board? I’m so there. You’re going straight from handing in Rhev’s book into writing the new series? Can you give us a hint as to how many books there will be in the new series? Do you already have it all mapped out?

  25. Anita/ofwundrian
    on Oct 31st, 2008
    @ 10:34 am

    I just said it in the Board – Oh please, never hold back your secrets if it`s too much of an effort! 😉
    LOVE the tag line! And everything about evil and redemption and … and … yeah, just all about it. But I really hope they`ll get along with your “other” focus on the Brothers!

    Thank you so much for giving us this constant source of pleasure that is or rather: are your books!

    Too many freaking questions, like – is it a group of Angels and each gets their own story? Do the angels ride the Harley or are they only reserved for evil. Although I can totally see J.R. writing a series where the Angels ride the motorcycles…

    Angels on Harleys! Angels on Harleys! And each one gets a book 😀

    I’m really pumped to start them, I think they’re great although I’ll still be doing the brothers as well of course- like Wrath would have it otherwise?! LOLOL

  30. J.R. Ward
    on Oct 31st, 2008
    @ 11:04 am

    I have most of it mapped out at this time, there is a finite amount of books but then again there was with the Brothers two so yeah, we’ll just see about that! So far as I’m aware, the hero of the whole series is a guy named Jim Crane who’s a carpenter and it’s all about him going up against the devil (who’s a very hot brunette, btw) with the help of his two partners, a scruffy dog and his bad attitude. There are other heros who come in along the way and there is a love story in every book. Things may change as I get into the writing, but the bare bones are set and I can’t wait to get started!

  31. Maria Lokken
    on Oct 31st, 2008
    @ 11:11 am

    I’m plotzing.

    Jim Crane you say. Is Jim throughout the series? J.R. I know you are a serious plotter, so I’m sure there is a lot you’re not saying, because I know that you know.

    I don’t want to get older, but I’m hoping the time flies between now and next year. One consolation – Rhev’s book will give me comfort until ’09.

  32. Anita/ofwundrian
    on Oct 31st, 2008
    @ 11:21 am

    Jim Crane, a carpenter (HOT, he surely knows how to use his hands I would guess *looking innocently into space*) and a DOG and BAD ATTITUDE. Oh my! And the devil`s a woman? If I got that right, then you got it right; never really saw the devil being male *thoughtful*.

    I just realize – the last 14 days before Rehv is due means you`re on Rehv Watch almost around the clock, aren`t you?! Please tell us, how does it feel to be surrounded by him so very intensely? How`s Rehv doing and is there maybe the teensiest little bit you could tell us about him?

    And I just want to let you know, that I really appreciate you being here and talking to us! Taking the time while Rehv`s hot stage`s going on, that`s totally worth a Thank You! 🙂

    Anyway I wanted to thank you for your book, they are so life like it’s amazing.
    Also will we find anything out about Boo in Rev’s book. Oh, and maybe a bit about george?
    Thank you again and have a great day!

    Awesome Halloween memory!! I kind of felt the same about my Papa… but it was because I knew that if anything jumped out and scared me it would probably be him. 😀 He does the best scary Mwahahahahaaaaa voice I’ve ever heard. That and a flash light under his chin was total gleeful terror. He was/is the ultimate tickle monster.

    Thank you so much for the new info… so much to look forward to! You really make life brighter. 🙂

    Oops, meant to add — don’t let V get that silly string near his hand. That stuff is flammable!!! O.O I can see “bad idea” written all over this one… boys!!!! Should be an interesting night at the mansion! 😀

    And on another note… as a kid I would have loved to be the lost trick-or-treater who ended up at the mansion. Fritz seems like the type who would give out the full sized candy bars. I loved those people.

    Loved the Halloween story – makes me want to be a kid again – oh well those days are gone forever.

    Can you give us a hint about Rhev’s ‘love’ story? I’m assuming he gets some happiness.

    Rehv’s final due in 14 days, after which you start work on COVET? Exciting times I must say, Ms Ward! 😀 Can’t wait to know more about the new series. And a carpenter? Hello, sexy! Sort of reminds me of Vishous the metal crafts master. I have this strange fascination for men who are good with their hands. 😉

    I love your Halloween memory, J.R. It sounds a lot like what happened when I was younger. My dad always walked my brothers, sister, and I around while my mom handed out the candy. Of course, with my mom’s parents only up the street and around the corner, we had somewhere to take a break without going home, and my grandma always had hot chocolate with marshmallows ready for us. 🙂

    The new series sounds fantastic! Of course, I still need to read the books in the Black Dagger Brotherhood since you’re a new author for me. I’m definitely looking forward to reading them, though!

    And, as for what I’m doing this halloween, my only plans at at the moment are to walk my niece and nephew around my work from 3-5 for their safe trick-or-treating here. They always fill up a bag with tons of candy.

    Hi J.R.! So happy to hear you’re writing another series. The BDB is one of my favorites, and I’m anxiously waiting for the next book.

    I’m going to a party tonight – and I’m dressing up as money. I thought it was appropriate for our current economic condition. I’m hoping it gets a laugh.

    Hi J,
    Welcome back to RNTV — what a great Halloween story. Thank you for sharing it. I’ve never been able to put my finger on the “daddy as superhero” thing — for me, it just is. Daddy just knows how to do things; and is there to make it better. What a great memory you shared; again, thank you so much. It brought back lots of memories for me too. I so understand the “I’m not scared of anything” cause daddy’s here thing. I get it! I totally get it.
    OMG, COVET, we get more, we get more…angels, Harleys, the Devil — count me in!
    I’m having serious withdrawals waiting for Rehv! I’m embarrassed to show my BDB books — they are used and abused! I think I’ll pet them when I get home. Thanks for stopping in and sharing such a great story.
    And it was great seeing you again at NJ RW last weekend! Girl, you rock!
    Best to you,

    You know, I really have to tell you all that you`re surely lucky to have the kind of fathers you have or had. To me it`s a little bit strange and slightly unbelievable to think one can have so very positive feelings towards the male parent. Of course, the reason behind it is that my relationship with my father never was a good one – for a lot of wrong things that unfortunately happend.

    So yeah, I hope (and from what I read you do) you appreciate your luck! And I like to hear all these positive memories!!

    Hi WARDen! Thank you so much for sharing your Halloween memory with your dad. And I’m so excited about the new series!

    One question for you: does your dog dress up for passing out candy? Happy Halloween! 😀

    Hello JR and everyone. I am running back and forth from the front door and the computer, giving candy out to the kids. DH and DD just stepped through the door with her loot. She went as one of the Disney Princesses.

    Hello WARDen! I loved your favorite childhood memory of Halloween. It brought back a flood of memories about my own father, things I hadn’t thought about in a very long time. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your evening and Happy Halloween.

    Happy Halloween! What a great childhood memory (and a lovely way to spend time with your father). We don’t really celebrate Halloween here, although I did see a couple of children out and about last night 🙂

    I’m really looking forward to reading The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider’s Guide 🙂 I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it *grin* And I’m (patiently 🙂 counting down the days to Lover Avhenged! I’m sorry I haven’t been to the BDB Board of late…sometimes I think my family plots to keep me away!

    I hope you have al ovely weekend!


    PS Will The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider’s Guide ever be released as a MMP? I’m one of those annoying people who needs books to be the same size 🙂

    Sam Raimi – the MASTER!!

    I got his Evil Dead in the DVD right now….and I got to see Evil Dead: the Musical when I was in NYC in 2007. Blood-spattering fun for the whole family LOL.

    I am excited about the new series…Angels, you say?? On Harleys?? YUM.

    Lami 😉

    I saw you bust up the table at NJ RWA and would testify in a court of law that it was the table’s fault! 🙂 I do disagree on Candy Corn though…I like the stuff, besides you can make vampire fangs with them.

    I’m real excited about the new series…sounds like it will be interesting!
