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.

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

An Interview, An Author, and a Magic 8 Ball: Kristina Springer



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 middle grade and young adult author Kristina Springer!!! Read the interview, then enter to win either an ebook of Boy Swap or an ebook of Paparazzi Project.

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

KS: BOY SWAP is about a band nerd named Brooke who gets tapped into a secret exclusive club
because the president of the club has the hots for her boyfriend. In the Boy Swap Club the girls promise to let others flirt with or even date their boyfriends without getting upset. The founders of the club find that this minimizes fights and backstabbing among the girls. Of course Brooke thinks the whole thing is absurd and wouldn't dream of wanting to share her boyfriend. But, she does trust him and is sure he wouldn't respond to any advances by any other girls. And this is a chance for her to become really popular and move out of her band nerd status. Nothing could go wrong, right?

MJ: This is a really, really, really funny book. Everyone should read it. What's your next release?

KS: I don't have anything permanently on the schedule but am hopeful to have news soon. I did just complete a new funny middle grade and am about to begin editing a young adult novel.

MJ: I can't wait. Your books are so funny! What do you wear when you write?

KS: tee shirt, yoga pants, and a fleece hoodie because I'm always freezing.

MJ: Especially this winter! What's your favorite vacation spot?

KS: Right now it's Disney. I'm sure as the kids get older it'll change to something else but we love going there as a family.

MJ: We still haven't gone yet. Maybe next year! Do you have any pets?

KS: One very old blind mini-poodle named Poe. And three giant Koi in our pond.

MJ: Aw, I love your little Poe. He's so sweet (Kristina & I are real life friends.) 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.

KS: Will Snooki ever stop "writing" books?


MJ: Oh, dear god, I hope so!

M8B: Without A Doubt

MJ: What a relief!

Kristina, thanks so much for stopping by my blog!!!!
