Stupid Questions with Lucy:
Vampires>Politicians Edition Featuring G. D. Ogan




It's a new year, and I'm back with new authors and new STUPID QUESTIONS!  So sit back, relax, and embrace the nonsense, friends.  Welcome to author G. D. Ogan, who has graciously agreed to play along!

​1. Who would win in a war between cats and bears?  

Well, if we are talking about the small domesticated cats (Kitties) then there is no contest; however, if we are talking about African Lions and Asian Tigers then it might be a toss-up. Even then, it depends on which type of bear: Full Grown Black Bear vs. Adult Lion or Tiger? I'd give it to the cat! Brown or Kodiak Bear vs. Lion or Tiger? It would be a toss-up. If a Polar Bear vs. any cat and the Polar Bear has my bet.

2. Would you rather get a diagnosis of Benedict Cumberbatch or Engelbert Humperdinck?​ 
 
This is actually a tough call! Cumberbatch is a rather young actor with a number of stunning lady friends he's dated or at the least been seen on the Red Carpet with. Engelbert, on the other hand is closer to my age (but still younger) who as a singer of love songs has done duets with just about everyone and was good friends with Elvis Presley (now you're talking nearer my age, in fact Elvis was about 10 years older than I). Anyone who was friend with Elvis has to get my vote, so I'm down with a case of Humperdinck (crazy name and all)!
3. If you could have any fantasy creature for a pet, what would it be and why? 
 
Well duh, I write about vampires...so, if you want to call vampires "fantasy creatures" and were it possible to have one or more as pets, then I'd definitely be down with that! Well, if you read any one (or hopefully more) of my "Immortal Relations" series, you will quickly understand...I love GOOD vampires. Mine protect innocent humans from evil (be it the blood-crazed type of vampire, human criminals or evil politicians [are any not evil?]).

4. Are aliens among us? 
 
If we are speaking of the kind from Outer-Space/Another-Dimension/or Time-Traveler, then I would ask, why would they want to be anywhere near us?! Any of these would probably have to be from an advanced civilization - so if they are "civilized" why would they stick-around with a bunch of very unpredictable, and all too often, uncivilized humans?
4A. Since there are aliens among us, what would you name a romance about them? 
 
"A Star-Goddess Falls for an Earthman" Having the curse of testosterone myself, I can attest to its ability to cloud (if not totally destroy) intellect, so the title might as well be slightly modified and applied to human females as well. "A Smart Lady has an Irrational Moment".
 
[EDITORIAL NOTE: I like your style, and I'm sorry about your testosterone affliction. Better luck in the your next incarnation!]
5. Speaking of horrible aliens, how would you help Justin Bieber off the planet? 
 
Now that he has grown (or morphed) into a 20's something...he is evidently getting some up-close & personal time with some very beautiful young ladies. Perhaps that is why he came down from Canada (or whatever star-system he is really from). When will he leave? I guess we would have to ask "Agent J" from the M.I.B. (Men in Black) Agency when Bieber's Visa will expire!
6. If you were a superheroine or -hero, what would your special power be?  

Well duh...remember...I write vampire stories? IMMORTALITY...of course! I'm not talking about just living forever...it would require invulnerability to insure my immortality (similar to, if not being in-fact a vampire). Armed with that, I would be doing exactly what my character Gary Logan does in my "Immortal Relations" series. Surely you can see his name and my own are so very close...he is, in fact, ME. The stories in the novels are what I would do given the opportunity. I would definitely be hated by all the evil politicians who try to rule over all of us. Emoji

IMMORTAL RELATIONS: COMING OUT by G. D. Ogan

This third in the series by G. D. Ogan continues to rock the foundation upon which typical vampire novels are based. Such stories, where vampires safeguard humans are rare indeed. These vampires do their utmost to save humans and animals from not only evil vampires but evil humans.

Ogan's insights into the powers of the immortal vampires, along with fresh takes on the complex inner workings of their existence provide an intriguing experience for readers. In this story a novice shape-shifter wolf meets a beautiful hybrid vampire. Good vampires set up a new coven in Southern Canada to monitor a regime intent on changing America into a dictatorship. Marxist thugs, not realizing who they are dealing with, still believe the group was partly responsible for the defeat of Communists intent on stealing oil, gold and mineral reserves from Russia, so Washington retaliates with violence. A great deal of effort is required by  the vampires to keep Canadian citizens safe. There is a vampire wedding with a handsome human; then dangers from outer-space suddenly appear to threaten the entire earth - can such threats be stopped?

An "Immortal Relations" reader said: "Being a bit of a vampire-phile, I find myself constantly searching for the next vampire series to reach out and grab, or, more appropriately, bit me. I believe I have found my holy grail of vampire novels..."

Not from the author:  While each of the novels in the "Immortal Relations" series will "stand alone," I recommend reading the second in the series, "Immortal Relations, Coming Out" before reading this third in the series. The second book has a short review of the major points of the first book as well as all the action of the second book which should make the third book more enjoyable. I often recommend the second book as a starting point for those for whom the "explicit togetherness" of the first book "Immortal Relations" might be disconcerting.
