A. http://www.frostfans.com/?page_id=851Q. When are you going to write a book for Vlad or Ian?
A. Re-more spinoff books. I’ve been very vocal about wanting to do a book (or two, or more) on Vlad. Ian I’d like to write about one day but he’s nowhere near ready to settle down yet. As for when I’ll be able to announce more details about spinoffs, contractually, I had to turn in revisions and copyedits on THIS SIDE OF THE GRAVE plus initial chapters on C&B6 before I could submit new proposals to my publisher. I’ve completed all my contractual requirements as of *checks clock* two hours ago, so I’ll be sending them my ideas for a Vlad book asap. Cross your fingers for me!Q. Cover Models
A. The only information Jeaniene has about the cover models is that they are both from the UK. Character InfoQ. Can Cat get pregnant?

A. After the change, the human’s heartbeat and breathing stop immediately. Other bodily functions—such as tear ducts, urine, and sperm—take a few days to shut off (HG3). For the first couple of days after the transition, a vampire is still able to reproduce.
