Book Tour + #Giveaway: The DOLL by Laura Daleo @AutLauraDaleo @RABTBookTours


Sci-fi Urban Fantasy

Date Published: 09-28-2021

The sudden death of Jenna Hess provides an ideal setting for The Dollmaker. Jeremy Dillon is captivated by CR1XY, an elite model that he can't resist. Is her creation exclusive to him, or are we merely learning about an elaborate plot? Nothing is certain in this high stakes game.

Interview with Laura Daleo

    How did you become involved with the subject or theme of your book?
    A thought just popped into my head. While the story initially focused on horror, once the characters began to emerge, it took a completely different direction, towards science fiction. 

    What were your goals and intentions in this book, and how well do you feel you achieved them?
    My goal was to build a highly intelligent, synthetic, human-like android that people would believe existed. By creating Carly, I accomplished what I set out to do. The sci-fi elements in the story are exactly what I wanted.

    What was the hardest part of writing this book?
    In my opinion, the most challenging part of the story was making all the computer-related parts credible.

    What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
    Developing Carly's relationship with Jeremy. 

    Where there alternate endings you considered?
    The ending of the story was always clear to me.

    Can you share some stories about people you met while researching this book?
    My entire research was conducted online using internet searches.

    What genre of books do you enjoy reading?
    Vampires fascinate me. They are fantastical creatures I love reading about. I adore Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles series.
