Exclusive Author Interview: Jessica Spotswood!

Exclusive Author Interview: Jessica Spotswood!

Jessica Spotswood, author of Born Wicked was awesome enough to let me interview her.  She also donated some pretty Born Wicked swag for a lucky winner! 1.  How many books do you have planned in the Cahill Witch Chronicles series?  Will they all be written in Cate’s POV? There will be three books, and, yes, they will all be from Cate’s POV. 2.  E-book novellas seem to be pretty big right now and a great way to keep fans happy in between books, do you have any novellas planned for this series? I don’t have anything official planned, but I would love to do a short story from either Maura or Sachi’s pov. There are interesting things going on with both of them between books one and two that Cate isn’t privy to! 3.  In your books, are women the only ones who can be witches? Yes. I really wanted to put clever, independent girls in a society that doesn’t value them, and giving them magic made the conflict even […]

Jennifer L. Armentrout Interviews Daemon and Katy!

Jennifer L. Armentrout Interviews Daemon and Katy!

Click here to check out the interview Jennifer did with the models that are on the cover for her Lux series (as well as several other books).  The interview is awesome and Pepe Toth and Sztella Tziotziosz are adorable!  I knew they had great chemistry but I had no idea they were dating, much less engaged.  I think it’s awesome! Here’s some pictures from the interview: And just because, here is a teaser from Jennifer from Onyx, from Daemon. Laughing under his breath, Daemon straightened. At his full height, he was a good head taller. “It’s always nice to meet another fan.” *** http://jenniferarmentrout.blogspot.com/2012/02/meet-pepe-and-sztella-from-lux-covers.html

But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will find that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts […]

Another Onyx Teaser!

He looked me straight on. “You are a terrible liar. You do want this. Just as badly as I do.”             My mouth opened, but no words came out.             “You want this as badly as you want to go to ALA this winter.”             Now my jaw was on the floor. “You don’t even know what ALA is!”             “American Library Association midwinter event,” he said, grinning proudly. “Saw you obsessing over it on your blog before you got sick. I’m pretty sure you said you’d give up your firstborn child to go.”             Yeah, I kind of did say that.             Daemon eyes flashed. “Anyway, back to the whole you wanting me part.”             I shook my head, dumbfounded.             “You do want me.”             Taking a deep breath, I struggled with my temper… and my amusement. “You are way too confident.”             “I’m confident enough to wager a bet.”             “You can’t be serious.”             He grinned. “I bet that by New Year’s Day, you will have admitted that you’re madly, deeply, and irrevocably—”             “Wow.  Want to throw another adverb […]
