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

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!

Of Sea and Stone Blitz

Enter to win a $50 Amazon gift card in the Rafflecopter at the bottom!!!!

Of Sea and Stone by Kate Avery Ellison
Publication date: February 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Synopsis:
All her life, clever Aemi has been a slave in the Village of the Rocks, a place where the sea and sky meet. She’s heard the stories about the fabled People of the Sea, a people who possess unimaginable technology who live below the waves in the dark, secret places of the ocean. But she never dreamed those stories were true.

When a ship emerges from the ocean and men burn her village, Aemi is captured, and enslaved below the waves in Itlantis, a world filled with ancient cities of glass and metal, floating gardens, and wondrous devices that seem to work magic. To make matters worse, her village nemesis, the stuck-up mayor’s son Nol, was captured with her, and they are made servants in the same household beneath the sea.

Desperate to be free, Aemi plots her escape, even going so far as to work with Nol. But the sea holds more secrets than she realizes, and escape might not be as simple as leaving…

An Interview, An Author, and a Magic 8 Ball: Gregory Thompson



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 scifi/fantasy/horror author Gregory Thompson!!!! I've known Greg pretty much all of my life. He's so funny and a great guy. Read the interview, then enter to win: 
one of five ebooks of My Only One

UPDATE: Gregory has offered to add a paperback to the prize package too! Whoo hoo! Thanks, Greg!


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

GT: My Only One is about a future dystopian society where you're only allowed to own one book. Different "Bureaus" run what was the United States of America: for example, the Bureau of Lights and Flames is in charge of monitoring electricity and candle use. The Bureau of Words and Pages keeps tabs on book consumption and perform Sweeps, random searches of homes to ensure Citizens are following the One Book Law. The main character's daughter comes home one day with a second book she has stolen and he must find a way to return it without being caught with it.
http://www.amazon.com/My-Only-One-Gregory-Thompson-ebook/dp/B00BF6KTX6
When he does return it, he opens up a secret world that threatens to overwhelm him.

MJ: OMG, so creative! What's your next release?


GT: My next release is The Indiscriminate, a science fiction novella about a group of 12 Indiscriminates bred from birth and aided with cybernetics to protect the world from Risers and Runners. These Risers and Runners are strange beings that manifested from the fall of the Gray Dirt that has left the world desolate and marginally functioning. One day, while on patrol, Bas and the rest of his team are brought back to headquarters and are informed the Indiscriminate program is being halted due to the overwhelming presence of the Risers and Runners. However, Bas' friend Hillian has disappeared and he vows to find her.

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

GT:1. Lisey's Story - Stephen King. No book has made me tear up than this one, and if I need to have a good cry (whether it's because I'm stuck on an island or just because), this book will do it.

2. The Old Man and the Sea - Papa. I know this Hemingway book is short, but it's Hemingway and my favorite. Also, it's also an instructional book on how to fish.

3. A compendium of Edgar Allan Poe stories. Any collection as long as it has everything he ever did. Plus, he's my other favorite author and these stories would be good around my campfire for solo storytelling.

MJ: I looooove Poe too. Who is your celebrity crush?

http://www.amazon.com/Nightcry-Gregory-M-Thompson-ebook/dp/B004QOAH9A/

GT: Nicole Kidman. Always has been, always will be. She can be pretty, she can be hot, she can be pretty hot. Sultry, dynamic, and I picture her as a laid back gal ready to drink a beer anytime. Even in the morning, which is perfect for me.

MJ: It's because you like redheads. Like me, right? lol! What is your favorite color?

GT: Purple. No, not because I like Barney or the Purple People Eater. I just do, okay?

MJ:
LOL! What do you wear when you write?


GT: I wear what I normally wear on any given day: T-shirt, jeans, and socks. Sometimes I throw on one of four of my favorite Izod sweaters, and sometimes I switch out the T-shirt with a Polo shirt. I mean, if I said in my underwear (boxer-briefs) with a smile and a cigar, would that have impressed you?

MJ: Wow, that last one is a visual I didn't need! ;) What's your favorite vacation spot?

GT: My absolute, ultimate, most favoritest vacation spot in the whole wide world is Mackinac Island, Michigan. It's relaxing and unique and recharges the mind. I love taking a 5 a.m. bike ride around the island when there are a handful of people doing the same; it's like you OWN the island. The history there is amazing and eye-opening, and if you do go, make sure you take a nighttime or midnight ghost tour. Boo.

MJ: I've been there twice myself. It is gorgeous.  Do you have any pets?

GT: One cat named Freddie. I consider it my wife's pet really because the cat and I have a Kirk-Kahn relationship. We respect each other, but also have disdain for each other. When we say hello to each other, it's with a small nod and a monotone "Freddie" and "Gregory". Also, I wouldn't want him hurt because I feel he has to stand trial for his atrocities: begging for treats all the time and crawling into bed to nap with me. That look...oh that look...FREEEEEEDDDDDDDIEEE!

MJ: Hahahahaha!! 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.

GT: Will Stephen King ever become my friend on Facebook (yes, his personal one)? I mean, I requested him so long ago and we have 7 mutual friends. Come on, King, you KNOW me.

MJ: That doesn't seem stalker-y at all....

M8B: You May Rely on It

MJ: M8B is never wrong, so expect Stephen to show up at your house for dinner soon!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog, Greg! I hope everyone takes a second to enter to win Greg's new book, My Only One in the Rafflecopter below!!!!

HIDDEN is in Paperback!!!!

Well, HIDDEN is officially available in paperback. You can order copies directly from the Barnes & Nobles website.

At the time I'm publishing this post, they are selling HIDDEN for $11.85. Click here to order from B&N.

If you order a paperback of HIDDEN from Amazon, you are also eligible to download the ebook for free. It's my little gift to you! Currently, Amazon is asking $12.60. Click here to order from Amazon.

Or, if you want a SIGNED copy, you can order one directly from my website. I'm charging $12.00, including shipping and tax. You can order that here. If for any reason, there's a rush on paperbacks
and I run out of stock, I will let you know ASAP.

HIDDEN may be available from other sales outlets and bookstores, but these are the only ones I'm aware of right now.

HIDDEN has been more than a year in the making. I'm thrilled to have the paperback available now. :)

Please welcome international best-selling fantasy author Daniel Arenson!!! Read the interview, then enter to win: 
one ebook of Moth


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


DA: Moth is about a world that stopped turning many years ago, leaving it torn between day and night. Its one half lies in eternal daylight, the other in endless darkness. On each side, people have been evolving separately. The daylight people live in a lush land of plenty, the eternal sunlight giving rise to jungles, swamps, and forests. On the dark side of the world, all plants have vanished, and people have evolved to survive in darkness; their eyes have grown large, their skin is pale, their hair is white, and they feed of mushrooms and bioluminescent fish. Each side fears the other. When the people of daylight invade the darkness, vowing to defeat the "demons of the night," they find that things aren't quite what they believed.

MJ: I'm a big fan of your Moth series, which anyone who follows me knows! What's your next release?

DA: Moth is part of an ongoing series. Empires of Moth, the second book, was released last Christmas. The third volume, Secrets of Moth, is being released this month. The fourth volume, Daughter of Moth, will follow later this year

MJ: I cannot wait! If you were trapped on an island, what three books would you want to have with you?

DA: David Copperfield -- a book about what it means to be human.
Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends -- old favorite fantasy books.
The Chronicles of Amber -- another old favorite series.
My own books -- not to read but just to place on a bamboo shelf, reminding me of my old life.


MJ: Ooooh, great selection! :) What is your favorite color?

DA: Creepy goth purple, The Birthday Massacre style.

MJ:
Niiiiice. Love it! What do you wear when you write?

DA: The nice thing about being a writer is that you don't have to wear any pants. The downside is that I'm not allowed to write in Starbucks anymore.


MJ: That Canada - so strict about their pants. In the US, the signs say: No shirt, No shoes, No service. We don't have to wear pants. ;) What's your favorite vacation spot?

DA: A couple years ago, we went to Rice Lake in Ontario. Very peaceful!

MJ: I love Ontario. So many beautiful places. Do you have any pets?

DA: We're currently looking to buy a dog. I'll get back to you. :)

MJ: Aw, doggie! Good luck in your search! 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.

DA: Will the next Star Wars movie be great?

MJ: OMG, I predict it's going to suck (but you know I'll see it in the theater anyway).

M8B: It Is Decidedly So

MJ: Oh, fine then, M8B. Disagree with me, why don't ya? We'll see if it's any good. We'll see...
