She did vampires before they sparkled in the sunlight and had blow outs. Even if you don’t know Anne Rice, you may know her for her most famous book, “Interview With a Vampire.” She has announced on her son’s Dinner Party Show, an online radio stream, that she will be writing another book with the return of a character favorite: “brat prince” Lestat de Lioncourt.
The announcement is exciting fans all over the world who are finding it hard to wait for the new sequel to “Queen of the Damned” as part of her infamous vampire series. The new book is titled “Prince Lestat” and has already been trending on twitter. The book is set to hit shelves on October 28, 2014, but the pre-sale is March 16th.
The award winning horror novelist says, “I think the Dinner Party Show is providing me with a terrific opportunity to really talk about my new book as I reveal it. I love the show’s format, the easy exchange with Christopher and Eric. So that’s why I’m very excited about revealing on the show. This is infinitely more fun say than releasing a Youtube film. It’s kind of the best of the new world of technology and the old world of radio and in the flesh press conferences.”
The new book sounds like new and old fans alike will enjoy it. Will you be buying it in March?
