In Their Own Words: Lilith Saintcrow on HUNTER’S PRAYER

Lilith says:

Hunter's Prayer by Lilith Saintcrow, UK paperbackHunter’s Prayer was actually the first-written of the Jill Kismet series. It came about because I was just finished with the Dante Valentine books and I needed a character who wasn’t so ‘broken’. I actually thought nobody would ever want to publish it because of some of the themes – abuse, prostitution, human sacrifice, and the like – so I let myself go and just went to the darkest corners, the places where I usually hold back when I’m writing something with a specific goal in mind. It was a shock to find that my editor wanted it, and wanted it yesterday!

With both my editor and agent so certain I went ahead and sold the book – and I’ve been endlessly glad I did. There’s nothing like stretching out of your comfort level to really challenge a writer.

Hunter’s Prayer – the second of Lilith Saintcrow‘s Jill Kismet novels – is out now in paperback in both the US and UK.

Lilith writes a regularly-updated blog on her website at www.lilithsaintcrow.com, which includes frequent items of advice for aspiring writers. You can also read the free Saint City serial novel, Selene at www.lilithsaintcrow.com/selene.
