Today, I’d like to welcome author Susannah Sandlin to the blog! She’s here as part of the Bewitching Book Tour celebrating the release of the third book in her Penton Legacy series, OMEGA. Please welcome Susannah as she introduces us to the Penton crew while they discuss vampires and interior design! 





House Beautiful, Vampire Style


Author Susannah Sandlin sneaked down into the underground facility known as Omega with some of the vampires of the Penton Legacy series this week to talk about home décor, since if they survive the current siege, they’ll all be building new houses. Unfortunately, all their homes in the vampire enclave of Penton, Alabama, were either bombed or burned recently. Aidan, the scathe leader featured in Redemption, was turned vampire in 1601 Ireland. Mirren, whose story is told in Absolution, is a former Scottish mercenary turned about the same time, also in Ireland. Will, featured in Omega (coming out Feb. 5), was turned as a 22-year-old in 1969 New York. 


Thanks for meeting with me guys. You’ve been looking over building plans, I see. What style of houses are you thinking about building?


Mirren: I keep telling them it’s too (bleeping) early to be looking at those. We survive the next couple weeks, then we can look at (bleeping) house plans.


Aidan: Think positive. I’m going to rebuild on the same piece of land as my old house since it’s near the medical clinic where my mate works. And my greenhouse was still standing, as far as I know. Although maybe something smaller. All those “Gone with the Wind” columns were kind of over the top.


Will: I want a place with a heated pool. Lots of blond wood and glass. Speaker system wired into every room. A room for my new pool table. Man, I can’t believe my pool table got torched.


What about you, Mirren?


Mirren: Roof. Walls. Floor. It’s too (bleeping) soon to be talking about this.


Will: No kitchen in my house. What a waste of space. I kept computer software in the cabinets of my old house. Maybe a walk-in wine cooler instead.


Aidan: Yeah, no kitchen for us either. I used my old kitchen cabinets as bookcases. I’m looking at combining the kitchen and den space in one of these house plans and making a library.


What about you, Mirren? (Is there an echo in here?)


Mirren: Glory wants a kitchen. I hate (bleeping) appliances.


Will: Yeah, but you like smelling what Glory can cook in them—you’re just mad because you forget they’re hot and keep burning yourself. Plus, she made you store your motorcycle parts somewhere else.


Mirren: I need a (bleeping) workshop.


Will: I just want a real shower. One of those huge walk-ins with river rock walls and glass.


Aidan: That’s a lot of glass you’re asking for.


Mirren: He’s a bloody exhibitionist.


Will: Hey, if someone wants to look, who am I to deprive them?


Mirren: You are such a (bleep)tard.


Aidan: Those showers in the sub-suites below the clinic were great—lots of natural stone.


Will: I can believe they all caved in. I worked hard designing those suites. My father and his damned bombs.


So, what’s your ideal bedroom look like?


Will (stretches): Honestly? Right now anything that didn’t have a freaking twin bed in it would be a novelty.


Aidan: You’re the one who picked out the furniture for the Omega shelter.


Will: How was I supposed to know I’d get lucky while I was living underground? I haven’t seen either of you offering to give up those spacious double beds I gave you.


Mirren: Spacious, my ass. Do I look like I’d fit in a (bleeping) double bed? I curse you every single daysleep.


Will: Why do you even need a bed?  Don’t you need a rack, or a bed of nails, or a slab of concrete, or—hey! That hurt.


Mirren: Shut it, junior, or the sword’s coming out.


Aidan (folding up blueprints and heading for the door): And, with that, I think it’s time to stop before we have a brawl and Will gets his other leg broken.


Wait—come back! How do I get out of this hole? How do you pull down the drop ladder? Guys? Wait? 


OMEGA by Susannah Sandlin




You can find OMEGA at:



The bloody war between the Vampire Tribunal and the defiant scathe of Penton, Alabama, rages on, forcing its residents and their bonded humans to retreat into the underground fortress of last resort: Omega. There, Will Ludlam is charged with the care of Penton’s humans, though he longs to fight alongside his vampire brethren. He knows the risks: as the renegade son of the Tribunal’s vicious leader, Will’s capture could doom the resistance. Yet he is determined to prove his worth to his adopted scathe, to his vengeful father—and to former US Army officer Randa Thomas, his beautiful, reluctant partner. Randa has little faith that a former member of the vampire elite has what it takes to fight a war. But as their enemies descend upon Omega, Will’s polished charm—and Randa’s guarded heart—finally give way to the warrior within. Fans of Susannah Sandlin’s Penton Legacy are sure to devour this long-awaited third installment of the steamy paranormal series.

        I’m not sure, Annie. I have the proposal in, but the publisher hasn’t made a decision. It would be about Cage. In the meantime, I’ll have a new kind of spinoff book coming this spring, beginning as a Kindle serial in late March and then regular release in July in print and audio. You heard it here first! It doesn’t even have a title yet!

  4. Sophia D

    would love to read the first book in this series….and the covers are hot!

  5. Filia Oktarina

    The cover books was amazing….. I loved it!! Thank you for sharing this post, i really enjoyed it 🙂

  6. Jeannie Platt

    Thanks for the character interview… love seeing what the guys want or “need” … Can’t wait to read will’s story… My question is do you find it hard to get the characters to relate due to the difference in age/ different times they come from?

    • Susannah Sandlin

      Thanks, Jeannie! I think Will exasperates Mirren and Aidan sometimes because he’s from such a different age (they don’t get the whole computer thing), but even the old guys have made it a point to live among humans for a long time, so they’ve been able to keep up. They’ll never share Will’s love of Jimi Hendrix, though 🙂

  7. Michel Reinhard

    Oh…these interviews & snippets get better and better. I frickin love this series. Can’t wait for Omega!

  8. Liz Semkiu

  11. Barbara Elness

    I enjoyed the character interview, it was a lot of fun. I haven’t had a chance to start this series yet, but I’m really looking forward to it. All these characters sound wonderful.

  12. Cindyg

    Thanks for the interviews guys…I loved both your stories.
    Looking forward to Will’s story.

  13. Tia

    Ms. Sandlin has lived in several states. I bet her life is interesting. I love her book covers and I wonder what she has seen go bump in the night?

    • Susannah Sandlin

      Hi Tia! Thanks for the cover love 🙂 I think my scariest experience was as a magazine writer when I was living in Texas. I decided to spend the night in a building on the Rice University campus that was supposed to be haunted. It scared the crap out of me! (It didn’t help that the campus police decided it would be funny to sneak in and scare me….which totally worked!)

  14. Veronica

    Loved this! and I think I would really like this series oh and the covers are amazing (I know I shouldn`t but I tend to judge books by their covers) lol
