A taste of the book:
by Victoria Scott

YA Paranormal Romance
Entangled Teen, March 2013 

Description:Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence has made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big redgood or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.
Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:
Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within 10 days.
Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect—he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.

  •  When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
    • It actually came slowly for me. Many writers I know decide they want to be an author when theyre very young. For me, the desire didnt come until I was in my late twenties. I was a working corporate job and got laid off, and during that time I asked myself, “What do I really want to do? It took some time to put the pieces together, but once I did, there was no denying it.

  •     3 things readers didn't know about Victoria Scott...
    • I dont drink coffee (I know, Im a writer. Its blasphemous)
    • If music isnt loud and angry, I want no part of it
    • Im deathly afraid of monkeys

  •    What's the inspiration for The Collector?
    • I wanted to do a retelling of the selling your soul to the devil story. And once Dante showed up in my brain, I didnt need much more inspiration. ;)
  •  What's the hardest part about writing the novel?
    • Working through the problems, and dealing with self-doubt. Both are crippling, but you have to find a way to push through them. For me, it may be emailing my critique partner, or talking it out with my husband (who mostly just nods and stares blankly at the wall).
  •    Who is your writer crush?
    • She knows who she is. *Waves at Veronica Rossi* Oh, I have a new, blooming crush on Leigh Bardugo. Maybe the three of us can Jello wrestle or something. You did say, crush” right?
  •   Hehe, yes i did :D. Tell me 5 pieces of advice you would tell the teen you?
    • Eat the cookie. Its not that big of a deal.
    • Appreciate your boyfriend. Hes teaching you what not to look for in a husband.
    • Those cargo army pants are awesome. Always will be.
    • Prom is cool. Youll realize this later.
    • Teachers are cool. Youll realize this later. 
  •    What can your fans expect from you next?
    • Next up will be the sequel to THE COLLECTOR, and assuming things stay on plan, will release Fall 2013.
Thank you Victoria! xx E
