Deciding to push our luck still further, here for your reading pleasure is another book giveaway, this time with New York Times best-seller, MaryJanice Davidson!
This time, we’re using Rafflecopter for everyone’s general sanity:
So spread the word, and earn yourself some wonderful free fiction in the process!
As well as the chance to win, MaryJanice joins us to talk about mirrored self mis-identification, writing the funny side of vampires, torturing your characters, and 6ft fairies.
CQ: On the face of it, tongue-in-cheek humor, chick-lit and paranormal romance make odd bedfellows. What brought on this mix, and how do you make it work?
CQ: The Undead series (Betsy, Vampire Queen) is a much lighter take on paranormal romance’s perennial favourite, the vampire. What made you pick this subject, and do you find the stereotypes lend themselves to lambasting?
CQ: Your latest release, ‘Yours, Mine and Ours’, and its prequel ‘Me, Myself and Why?’ follow an atypical FBI agent, balancing her work with Multiple Personality Disorder. How much research did you do into the condition as part of writing these books?
CQ: You have quite the extensive back list! How much new material do you produce a year, and what keeps you focused?
CQ: Where do you write? Are there any pre-requisites for your writing environment (music, silence, copious wine, pandas in drag)?
CQ: You have several multi-book series. Sitting down to craft a new story, what excites you more – a whole new world / set of characters, or finding out what happens next to an old favourite? Are the two different experiences?
CQ: You’ve headlined a couple of novella compilations for St Martin’s Press (‘Faeries Gone Wild’ and ‘No Rest For The Witches’). Do you have a hand in which other stories make it into the publication? What was got you involved in these projects?
I’m also a fan of giving back: so many writers helped me when I was struggling. I was thrilled when I was asked to be in anthologies with Charlaine Harris and Laurell K. Hamilton. These days, to my surprise and honor, I’m often the “big name” highlighting the anthology, and I’m always happy if my name on a cover will help a lesser-known writer get some recognition.
CQ: How much fan interaction, through blogs, signings and other means, do you get? Is it a means or an end?
CQ: And finally, a little less seriously: of every fictional hero you’ve ever written, who would you most like to take home and make your own for ever and ever?
