Bryan Rainey Interview

Welcome to Ink & Magick. I'm your friendly neighborhood witch. What kind of spell can I get for you (or your character) today?

A Double Chocolatey Chip Frappachino

Umm, I think you may have wanted to stop at the Starbucks down the street...In any case tell me about your book, Metaverse Part Four: Arcanum.

Elise's powers activate one night as Robert Stromhold returns home after years abroad. He was followed by the infamous hunters known as the Immortus Clan...


THE HUNTERS LOOK UP at the house, then each other. Thor nods his head to the others. Then, each of the burly hunters removes the crossbows from their back. Next each grabs an arrow to load upon the crossbow.

“Lock and load, boys,” Thor says as Elise refuses to go any further. Her arms are crossed and she has a look of rage upon her face.

“I’m not going.” Elise protests as her hand still stings from being cut moments ago to lure out the Stromholds.

“Look, toots,” the large burly blond hunter tells the waitress gruffly. “These people are dangerous.”

“I doubt that,” Elise says as the arrow on Rocco’s crossbow is lit on fire. Then, she sees it. “What the hell is that for?”

“For everyone’s protection, ma’am,” Rocco says with a Brooklyn accent.

“What are you talking about?”

“They be vampires,” Vlad states.

“Yeah, right. And I’m the tooth fairy.”

“How do you do, madam fairy?” Rocco sarcastically asks with respect as he and the hunters aim at Stromhold Manor.

They, then, launch the fiery arrows from their crossbows towards the house. The hunters laugh as Elise dials 911 on her cell phone.

“911 emergency services, how may I help you?” Elise hears the operator say.

“I want to report an arson in progress.” Elise responds in a whisper.

“What’s the address?”

“Stromhold Manor. 234…” Elise says as her cell is taken from her hand and ripped in two by Thor.

“Stupid, toots. Real stupid. The sheriff won’t be able to help you here”

I see you went to an art and design school. Did you create your cover?

I do create my own covers.

You mention Metaverse Part Four. Do the other three parts have the same characters, or do they all just share the same world? What are the other three books called?

They share the same world with the other series comprising the Metaverse.

Part One: The Phoenix Hunter

Part Two: First Moonlight: A Moontripper Novel

Part Three: Rogue Wolf: the Phoenix Hunter II

Which one of your characters surprised you?

Kelly Monroe

Who is your favorite (or least favorite) character and why?

Favorite Character is Mickey O'Brien. He is a punk and the glue to the story as well as the best friend of Devon Harrison.

If you could time-travel, would you travel to the future or the past? Where would you like to go, and why would you choose that time period?

Future to see how I turned out in life.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

They can place a review on Goodreads and where they purchase the book.

What can we expect from you next?

Metaverse Part Five: Mind Games #1 (October 2017)

Metaverse part Six: Grimoire of Darkness: the Phoenix Hunter III (February 2018)

These are the next two books in the Metaverse saga.

    D. Lieber has a wanderlust that would make a butterfly envious. When she isn’t planning her next physical adventure, she’s recklessly jumping from one fictional world to another. Her love of reading led her to earn a Bachelor’s in English from Wright State University.

    Beyond her skeptic and slightly pessimistic mind, Lieber wants to believe. She has been many places—from Canada to England, France to Italy, Germany to Russia—believing that a better world comes from putting a face on “other.” She is a romantic idealist at heart, always fighting to keep her feet on the ground and her head in the clouds.

    Lieber lives in Wisconsin with her husband (John) and cats (Yin and Nox).
