An Interview, An Author, and a Magic 8 Ball: C. Greenwood





Welcome back to my interview series An Interview, An Author, and a Magic 8 Ball! I'll be bringing you a new author and a new giveaway every Monday this year. I hope you'll stop by to check out these authors and enter to win some prizes!!!! :D



Please welcome fantasy author C. Greenwood!!! Read the interview, then enter to win a paperback copy of Magic of Thieves, Book 1 in the Legends of Dimmingwood Series!!!


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IVH79JO?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B00IVH79JO&linkCode=xm2&tag=megjen00-20
MJ: Tell me about your novel in your own words, not the official synopsis.

CG: Magic of Thieves is the first of my Legends of Dimmingwood series. It's a story about a girl who's in kind of a tough place. Her family is killed and she's carrying around a secret that could endanger her life too. She falls in with some unlikely allies - a band of forest brigands, who take her in. Some want to protect her, others want to murder her. Surviving in that environment makes her strong but also gives her a twisted view of the world. She learns not to rely on anything but her magic and the power of her bow.


MJ: I absolutely love the premise of this series! What's your next release?

CG: My next release will be Mistress of Masks, book one of the Catalysts of Chaos series. It takes place in the same world as my Dimmingwood books but follows different characters in a far away country.

MJ: Love it! If you were trapped on an island, what three books would you want to have with you?

CG: That's a tough choice. I'd prefer to have my Kindle and unlimited wireless access, so I could download a constant stream of ebooks, but I guess that would be cheating, wouldn't it? ;P
FREE on Amazon, Nook, Kobo, iBooks

MJ: Unlimited internet access on a deserted island sounds amazing - but only if there are monkey servants on unicycles. Who is your celebrity crush?

CG: I tend not to crush on real people but on characters. A few of my faves would be Boromir, Faramir, and Eomer from Lord of the Rings and Thorin from The Hobbit. I'm also partial to Spock (who isn't?) but that's a whole 'nother genre.

MJ:
It's possible you haven't heard yet. THORIN OAKENSHIELD BELONGS TO ME! As does Boromir. You have the others. I'm a Capt. Kirk girl, so we can double date with you and Spock. lol What's your favorite color?


CG: I'll say royal purple out of life-long loyalty but I've developed a strong preference for turquoise too.

MJ: Regal choices! What's your favorite vacation spot?

CG: I like San Antonio, Texas. The riverwalk there is beautiful, with the trees and fountains all lit up after dark. You can grab a ride on one of the water taxis when you want to rest your feet or, if you've got kids with you, the horse-drawn carriages are always a hit. During the daytime it's cool to tour the old missions, like the Alamo, or visit the nearby drive-through zoo.

MJ: San Antonio is on my list of places to visit. It sounds amazing. Do you have any pets?

CG: Only one permanent pet, a much-adored Yorkshire terrier named Sampson. But wild animals are in and out of our house all the time. We're always taking in injured bunnies or raising baby birds that've fallen from their nests. Bullfrogs and grass snakes are also popular in our house. We're very much animal people.

MJ: Oh, I love this!!!! Now, I need YOU to ask ME a question about absolutely anything under the sun. It has to be a yes or no question and will be answered by my all-knowing Magic 8 Ball! The question can be serious or silly - it’s up to you.

CG: Ah, I've got a question for you. Is the zombie apocalypse coming for real or are the rumors vastly exaggerated?


MJ: Let's see what M8B says....

M8B: As I See It Yes

  
MJ: Well, it's a good thing I've been working out a lot lately. Time to start running! ;) Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

KKAfter New Blood, I'll have to see what I put on the summer writing schedule. Maybe another Bloody Little Secrets novel...I'll have to see what the Magic 8 Ball tells me!

MJ: Ooooooh! I love the idea of more vampires. If you were trapped on an island, what three books would you want to have with you?

KK: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Did I mention Harry Potter? Those specifically though because 1, introduced us to the world, 4 took us to the next level, and 7 wraps the whole series. Really, I'd just rather bring all 7.

KK: Oh so many...Ewan McGregor, Ian Somerhalder, Brad Pitt...

An Interview, an Author, and a Magic 8 Ball: A.C. Davis




Welcome back to my interview series An Interview, An Author, and a Magic 8 Ball! I'll be bringing you a new author and a new giveaway every Monday this year. I hope you'll stop by to check out these  authors and enter to win some prizes!!!! :D


Please welcome thriller author A.C. Davis!!! Read the interview, then enter to win one of
10 ebook sets of A.C. Davis novellas, which include Jenny's Blue Velvet and Still Nights. (These are for a mature audience.)

MJ:
Tell me about your novel in your own words, not the official synopsis.

ACD: Jenny's Blue Velvet is a psychological thriller about a woman seeking more out of life. Jenny's unhappy with it all, the cubicle job, her sex life, everything. Like so many of us, she knows she was meant to be doing something different, but she's just not sure what. Then there are the bills keeping her at her dead end job, day in and out. She's trapped and feels like she's living in an alternate reality, that soon her situation will turn around and her true destiny will reveal itself. And then it does, but it's not exactly what she had in mind.

MJ: This book is crazy in the BEST way. I hope everyone checks it out. What's your next release?

ACD: Woman in Black Lace should be out at the end of this year or the beginning of 2015. I have a couple releases expected under a different pen name, Angela Carlie, this summer and fall.

MJ: I can't wait for all of these books!! If you were trapped on an island, what three books would you want to have with you?

ACD: Three books I haven't read yet. I'm not a fan of the re-read unless it's been so long that I don't recall what happens. It's the same with movies and real life as well. That's probably why I go insane at my day job each and every single day.

MJ: I love that answer. So original and unexpected! It also makes a lot of sense. Who is your celebrity crush?

ACD: There are so many, but surely none at all. I wouldn't necessarily consider these crushes, but rather celebrities I am fond of. Neil Patrick Harris is super talented. I met him once and that may be a big reason why I've listed him first. For a while I wanted to watch everything Tom Hardy touched. Megg Jensen, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Degeneres, Natalie Portman, Woody Harrelson, Alicia Silverstone, Joaquin Phoenix, Anne Hathaway, Tobey Maguire... The list goes on, really.

MJ:
Wait, I'm in that list?! *waggles eyebrows and blows kisses* What's your favorite color?

ACD: At the moment I enjoy bright pinks, oranges, and greens. This will change soon.

MJ: Haha, mine change a lot too. For me it's always between black, red, purple, and sapphire. Never all at the same time, though. What's your favorite vacation spot?

ACD: Hawaii. Any island will do, but the Big Island and Maui are my favorite.

MJ: Some day I want to go there too. Maybe we should go together! Do you have any pets?

ACD: I do have companion animals! I wish I had time, room, and finances to care for more. Someday I'd like to open a farm sanctuary. Louie, Wee, Cotton, Bellz, and Pumperkins live with us at the moment.

MJ: I love seeing pictures of all your babies on Facebook!!!! <3 Now, I need YOU to ask ME a question about absolutely anything under the sun. It has to be a yes or no question and will be answered by my all-knowing Magic 8 Ball! The question can be serious or silly - it’s up to you.

ACD: If I ever get around to planting seeds for a garden this year (like Megg has done already), will I end up murdering it AGAIN?

MJ: Bwahahahahaha! Maybe we should have a contest called The Hunger Games...see which one of us goes hungry because we can't grow our own food. 

M8B: It Is Certain
  
MJ: Um, well, uh, try it anyway? lol. Thanks for hanging out with me today, A.C.! It was wonderful hosting you. <3
