Spotlight & Giveaway: Sun God Seeks…Surrogate? by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Posted February 28th, 2014 by in Blog, Spotlight / 37 comments

Today it is my pleasure to welcome New York Times bestselling author Mimi Jean Pamfiloff to HJ!



MimiJean1. Mimi has been addicted to Peet’s French roast coffee since high school and can’t start her day without a giant mug.

2. She writes about 90% of all her books while sitting in her backyard. (Her hubby created a little outdoor living room for her, too!)

3. She takes great care to decorate every laptop she writes with so it has a good vibe. Her current laptop is covered with stickers of very happy turtles, frogs, a monkey, butterflies, and suns.

4. Her absolute favorite wine to sip on while writing love scenes is Vigilance, Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are sustainably farmed and the wine never gives her headache. Yum…

5. Mimi secretly wishes she had two heads so she could read while she writes.


SUSS1. Kinich Ahau was the first deity to meet and befriend the first vampire ever created, Narmer. Narmer, an Egyptian pharaoh, became instrumental in convincing Kinich to take his place as leader of the gods, something that Kinich had refused to do for thousands of years.

2. Kinich was always secretly jealous of a vampire’s ability to sift. He didn’t think it was fair that they had such cool powers when all he could do was make things hot and glamour humans.

3. In Sun God Seeks…Surrogate?, Kinich is opposed to deities procreating. He believes it to be unnatural and that it would disrupt the delicate balance of the universe. But what Kinich really fears is commitment. He can’t understand why is brethren are so eager to find mates and have families. What good could ever come of it?

4. In truth, Kinich hates being a deity. It’s a thankless job with no end in sight. But when he meets Penelope, the thought of living an eternity with a woman like her makes him second guess everything. Being outside of his comfort zone scares the hell out of him, but becomes his catalyst for change.

5. When Kinich meets Penelope for the first time, he immediately wants her, but Cimil knows he’ll need a little nudge to act upon his urges. The holiday party thrown by Cimil is really an excuse to get a black jade necklace into Kinich’s hands (gods can’t be intimate with humans without one) and a bottle of champagne with a roofie to his hotel room.

  1. Monique D

    …because who wouldn’t want to be the Goddess of love. Finally I got it right ! TGIF !!!

  2. Josette Schaber

    I love this series. As for the answer, any as long as I got to marry Thor LOL

    But, if I was to pick I’d want to be a goddess of Chaos. Because I live in chaos every day 😉

  3. Barbara Hopkins

    I would have to say I would want to be Athena, goddess of war, and Zeus’ daughter. She was born fully grown in golden armor, she aided Perceius, and was considered to befriend mankind. She was very smart, and cared for her father, the gods, but also mankind.

  4. Christine L.

    I’d choose to be Egyptian warrior goddess Sekhmet (daughter of sun god Ra) because she was a goddess of healing as well as protector of the pharaohs who led them in warfare. Depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians, Sekhmet was accorded titles such as the “(One) Before Whom Evil Trembles,” “Mistress of Dread,” and “Lady of Slaughter.” I’d be quite the bad-a$$.

  5. Diana Huffer

    My namesake — Diana, Goddess of the hunt, the moon, and birthing (Roman mythology). I would be a provider, protector, for my family and community. I would also ensure that the continuation of our lineage.

  6. Sarah Q Meyer

    I would be Nike Greek goddess of victory. She is one of the most neutral parties and she helps settle disputes. Even tho she is neutral she always does what is right.

  7. Erin J.

    I always found the Hindu Goddess Kali to be fascinating. She is associated with death and as a toxicologist, death is kind of my…life… 🙂

  8. Kai W.

    It would be Isis, the Egyptian goddess. She knows everybody’s true name and there isn’t any secret that could be hidden from her.

  9. Ann Ellis

    Mohini is the only female avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu. She is as a femme fatale, an enchantress, who maddens lovers, sometimes leads people to their doom.

  10. Dina Reyna

    i’m such a huge fan of Mimi’s series. I would have to choose Hera, the Queen of the Gods. She said to be the only female goddess to accompany a woman through every step of her life. Goddess of Marriage and Heavens.

  11. Janine

    I’d probably be Hestia, she seems like the one of the kinder, gentler gods. Plus, I like to cook!

  12. Eva Millien

    I would love to be Goddess of the Moon, I love the night and in most cultures the moon goddess was also the huntress. This is a great book, I really enjoyed it and would love to have a print copy. Thanks for sharing it and the giveaway. evamillien at gmail dot com

  13. Nicole Potter (@NiiArt)

    Ooooh there’s so many to choose from…! If I could pick, I’d want to be….either Artemis or Hestia! Of course, being goddess of the Hunt would be AWESOME, but I also like the idea of goddess of Hearth and Home. Either would be cool 🙂

  14. Christine Kochanowski

    Frejya because she is associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, war, and death (pretty much covers everything). She possesses great wisdom and magic. She is an upper level goddess who is also Queen of the Valkyries.
