Edited on 29th Jan 7:06pm IST:
It's at midnight in my case! And I have a project due tomorrow and I'm still not yet done... But I'm working my end off trying to finish so that I can come and chat! Being oceans away means that this is the only way I can meet one of my favourite authors! Thanks Kim for keeping writing about Hollows and thank you so so much for Ever After!

q: I truly enjoy your characters. What inspired you to make "demons" almost likeable?
Tommie Marie Stickel:

i really can't wait.. i love all Kim Harrison books...
Aleta Goin:
Jan 18, 2013 08:11AM
q: This is a question about your writing in general. How do you craft your antagonist/villain? This is the part of writing that I seem to struggle the most with. I think with a solid antagonist in mind, it would be much easier for me to figure out the plot for my stories. What is your process for creating one and do you have any suggestions? Thanks!
Narendra Veera:
Jan 18, 2013 08:22AM
q: The Hollows series is one of the very few paranormal series that i have been able to keep following without losing interest in the middle. My question is will there be more of the same type of interaction between Ivy and Rachel as in the previous books or is that part of the story tied up? Thanks!
Shawnie Tetley Leatherman:
Jan 18, 2013 09:01AM
I want to know about that cocoon Al made for Rachel... Was there a special meaning in that? Is it weird that I want some sort of small romance (or perhaps a stronger bond) between Rachel and Al??
Miranda Lynn:
Jan 18, 2013 09:05AM
Totally Love this series, I am curious though. Do you draw on personal experience or of those around you when creating the relationships between all the characters? The friendships, tension, needing vs wanting someone and the struggle to do what is right vs what feels good?
Melody UpAllNightNovels.com:
Jan 18, 2013 11:27AM
q: Like the proverbial "bad penny", Nick is back in the Hollows, and causing some major michief. How did it feel as "the queen of delayed gratification" to finally tie up that particular loose end?
Larry Geistlinger:

Missyb:
Jan 18, 2013 05:55PM
do you outline a book then go back and fill in the scenes, or do you just write? We hear about authors whose "muse" is gone and they haven't written a book for a series in a year or two yet they've written books for other series, how do you get out of that funk, if it's happened to you?
Adrjunkee:

Jennifer Demarest:
Jan 21, 2013 05:46AM
q Rachel's relationship with Trent has come a long ways since the start of the series, are you planning on developing this relationship into something more, with them becoming a couple, or just leave it as a friendship?
Christie Woodin:
Jan 21, 2013 11:20AM
Do you research a lot for your books before you write them? How often do you make things up, like the magnetic chalk, and is it hard for you to do so.
My Urban Fantasies:
Jan 21, 2013 03:21PM
q I'm a huge fan of Al. Do we learn the meaning behind the blue butterflies in this book?
June:
Jan 23, 2013 03:33PM
q So my question refers to Al's wife, her death in particular. Did she die in the war, when they were cursed to the ever after, or maybe when Newt killed her "sisters" after being tricked into it? Or is it a story that we will never know? Thanks for bringing the Hollows to life for us.
My Urban Fantasies:
Jan 23, 2013 05:29PM
q What happened to Wayde?
Victoria Stake:
Jan 23, 2013 07:04PM

Yes! Yes! This has been a burning question for me too! Have you noticed how Ms. Harrison carefully mentions that chrysalis (even if only briefly) in every book since Al made it? Will we learn the secret behind this in the last book?
Naturomel:
Jan 27, 2013 11:19PM
What is the key thing in your life that has changed since you've become a well known (awesome :-) author? How has writing changed for you since you have become published and so popular? Do you still enjoy it in the same way?

Ruth Rivera:
Jan 28, 2013 10:48AM
q: Are we seeing Ivy on her way out of the series? I love Ivy and the dynamic she used to bring to Rachel, I was so sad in this book to see her on the outside. I know it isnt popular, and I know Rachel doesn't swing that way, but I really feel like thwy are perfect for eachother. Also, Rachel now knows she cant be bound by a vampire, and she can hold anothwr sould withing her own. She could save Ivy. So I guess my question really is, is the possibility of Ivy and Rachel completely over?
Aprile Daley:

Q: How did you pick the right character names and what traits do you think makes your characters interesting, setting them apart form the rest o the genre?
Eduardo Torres:
Jan 29, 2013 08:48PM
q: how do you come up with names? I write also but when I come up with a name for a charachter I've already fleshed out I'm not comfortable with it, and can't really give it a name
Megelza:
Jan 29, 2013 09:43PM
q: Can you tell us more about Trent's mother? Will more information about her be in future books?
Megelza:
Jan 29, 2013 09:48PM
q: Will Rachel ever outlive her past? Having the slime ball ex-boyfriend Nick keep showing up has got to be both embarrassing and depressing.
Eduardo Torres:
Jan 29, 2013 10:06PM
q: will you manage more the strain there is between inderlanders and humans? or maybe even show what the sittuation is in other parts of the world? because I don't believe that everywhere is the same.

Anasta Ensenanda W:
Jan 30, 2013 02:49AM
q: i'm really captivated by this series even though i haven't read your two last books -its hard to get them in Indonesia-. so I've been wondering how do you manage your stories? to keep them in the plot until after this long and not losing your readers' attention? we know that some writers (i'm not going to say who they are) have already lost their readers' attention because there's just too many books in the series and we can't even see the plot anymore.
Pamela Ty:
Jan 30, 2013 04:53AM
This chat will be going up at 2AM in my place, and I have school tomorrow, and I actually haven't read any of your books yet, Kim. But anyway, I just wanted to thank you for continuing to write about vampires despite the general audience's dislike of it. Rest assured I've know you since your book, Once Dead, Twice Shy, was advertised and I've added Dead Witch Walking to my to-read pile since last year. Have a nice day! :D
Eesia:
Jan 30, 2013 06:32AM
Q: Hollows Universe is very complex. I was wondering where the idea came from and how. Have you had whole picture in your head in first book or it was growing with the series?
Kashish Kaur:
Jan 30, 2013 07:10AM
sounds good <3
Ashrakat Deyab:
Jan 30, 2013 07:16AM
q which is your favorite book in the series and why?
Dusty Bibliophile :
Jan 30, 2013 08:28AM
q: Trying to collect the Hollows series in hardback, I've found all of them at reasonable prices except Fistful of Charms. Was that book only printed in limited quantities? Or was it so well received that most of the stock isn't circulating because no one wants to part with it? Right now I have to be satisfied with a paperback edition.
Jink:
Jan 30, 2013 08:57AM
q: Your work seems to be inspired by many things, from popular culture to religion and history. What kinds of sources did you use to inspire the supernatural elements of your novels (i.e. herbs, spell books, supernatural mythologies)? And do you believe there is a connection between the increasing commercialization of the occult via bookstores, etc... and the popularization of the paranormal/urban fantasy genre you work in?
Patrick Brown:
Jan 30, 2013 09:45AM
Hi Everyone. For those asking if we are going to record the chat the answer is yes! We will have the recording available not long after the chat is over.
H.A. Fowler:
Jan 30, 2013 09:50AM
I'm so excited about this. Meeting Kim is a dream of mine, and her tours don't come near where I live! She's definitely one of my biggest writing influences!
H.A. Fowler:
Jan 30, 2013 09:52AM
q: Did you plan Rachel's character development (at least general arc-wise) ahead of time, or did you let her grow as the story took her?
H.A. Fowler:
Jan 30, 2013 09:53AM
q: How do you keep your series bible? Do you do it on paper or computer, and if the latter, do you use a particular program?

Jeanne Adkins:
Jan 30, 2013 10:14AM
q What do you think about of the new books that seem to be similar to yours now? Others like vampires and witches that live with "normals", police themselves, and cause havoc and mayhem. And, what are you trying to express about bigotry in your books? I'm not sure quite how to phrase that, but you have your character being blackballed, first for being a witch who does black magic, and now a demon. I'm the mother of 2 autistic boys, and a just curious.

Jennifer Demarest:
Jan 30, 2013 11:03AM
Chris, I think that you still watch it, it may help you to understand what will happen once you start to read the series, with 10+ books in the series it would be difficult to have a chat and not have a few spoilers for those that have yet to read the entire series. So I really think that you should watch the chat.

Janelea:

Spacechik:
Jan 30, 2013 11:25AM
anyone else lose the feed?
Katie:
Jan 30, 2013 11:25AM
q: Trent and Al's relationship seemed to evolve a lot in the last book. Has their mutual loathing changed? If so, did that surprise you? Is a portent of more changes to come with demons and elves?

HBO would do it the best
Michelle Huntley-Herrema:

Janelea:
Jan 30, 2013 11:30AM
i mean the video
H.A. Fowler:
Jan 30, 2013 11:31AM
It needs to be on a cable network that will give Kim ultimate control over the storylines.
Carine Wittman:
Jan 30, 2013 11:31AM
cable would be better
Jen:
Jan 30, 2013 11:31AM
If there's a TV series, I hope it stays true to the books...I didn't like the changes they made to the Dresden Files...

H.A. Fowler:
Jan 30, 2013 11:32AM
I wasn't particularly talking to you, Michelle. Don't jump to conclusions. I was talking to people who were getting angry and freaking out over things not working in the beginning.
Kevin:
Jan 30, 2013 11:32AM
See Dresden Files didn't bother me since Harry's personality remained the same but the worst adaptation has to go to Legend of the Seeker.
Sandar:
Jan 30, 2013 11:32AM
yeah they ruined Dresden Files.
Jennifer Demarest:
Jan 30, 2013 11:33AM

Drew Constance:

Michelle -- Don't worry, sweetie, they'll post it later for download, and probably a transcript.
Kevin:
Jan 30, 2013 11:35AM
They butchered Richard, Kaylan, Zed, and pretty much everyone. Even Rahl. I don't mind differences since I follow the Douglas Adams view of adaptations, but Legend of the Seeker changed so much that it is almost unrecognizable.
Jessica:
Jan 30, 2013 11:35AM
I'm not a big fan of the changes HBO has made to the Sookie series or Game of Thrones. But if you look at the TV series as a second chance to tell a similar story then it seems to work.
Shannon Bradshaw:
Jan 30, 2013 11:36AM

Kevin:

Oh no! Mine is messing up too! Im using Chrome.
Kevin:
Jan 30, 2013 11:37AM
Douglas Adams used to say 'If you want the book read the book. Each version should be different enough to be interesting but not so different it changes the characters too much'
Kevin:

Angel:
Jan 30, 2013 11:38AM
Excatly..and I have to agree with the person about HBO and Sookie...I can NOT stand how they turned that all around
Fern Taylor:
Jan 30, 2013 11:38AM
wooo that was my question
Jennifer Demarest:

q What was your reasoning behind not giving Rachel a long-term romance in the series?
Loretta Myers:
Jan 30, 2013 11:40AM
q Do you worry that you might have killed off a character that you would like to have back in the story.
Drew Constance:

I haven't read Butchers either. Have watched the tv show. Loved it.
Natasja Smith:

Megelza:
Jan 30, 2013 11:40AM
Nice interview so far but weren't we promised she'd be talking about the new book? This is mainly generic info.

It's going by the questions people asked.
Heather:

Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder*:
Jan 30, 2013 11:41AM
I guess they mainly asked generic questions at the top?
Kevin:
Jan 30, 2013 11:42AM
Basically if you enjoyed the Dresden Files TV series, you'll enjoy the book if you can get past the first couple books which are pretty badly written.
Drew Constance:
Jan 30, 2013 11:42AM
I think its crashing cause so many people are viewing.
Ashley:
Jan 30, 2013 11:42AM

Rebecca Gabriella:
Jan 30, 2013 11:42AM

I'm a huge Urban fantasy fan and I happened to find the first one at the thrift store years ago and never read it. When I stumbled upon the sixth one, I started the series and fell head over heels

Christine Bowden:
Jan 30, 2013 12:18PM
In my opinion i saw it as Rachel growing
Christine Bowden:
Jan 30, 2013 12:19PM
and seeing how she learned from her grief from the loss is Kisten and seeing how everyone was growing and moving on its finally her turn to move on in spite of hurt..
Sandar:
Jan 30, 2013 12:19PM
true.
Aly:

Jan 30, 2013 12:23PM
in answer to the sci fi romance
Dusty Bibliophile :
Jan 30, 2013 12:23PM
I started with that one as an audio book. As soon as I got about ten minutes into it I decided it sounded too interesting to start in the middle of the series.
Christine Bowden:
Jan 30, 2013 12:23PM
the baby sitting one was pale demon
Dusty Bibliophile :
Jan 30, 2013 12:24PM
So I got book 1 on audio.
Sandar:
Jan 30, 2013 12:24PM
yep.
Dusty Bibliophile :
Jan 30, 2013 12:24PM
It seemed interesting enough but the narrator was just killing the story, her voice just wasn't working for me.
Sandar:
Jan 30, 2013 12:24PM
really enjoyed perfect blood but my fave is fistful of charms
Dusty Bibliophile :
Jan 30, 2013 12:24PM
So I hit the used book stores and got THIS WITCH FOR HIRE.
Christine Bowden:
