Interview the Author Week! And Book Giveaway!

Every Saturday I interview new authors and give you a chance to win some exciting new titles!

Today I am going to tweak that just a little.

In honor of my new release, Immortalis Carpe Noctem, I am going to turn the tables around and let you interview me ... all week long.

And no Author Interview would be complete without chances to win FREE BOOKS?

I'll be offering up 2, signed copies of Immortalis Carpe Noctem as prizes!

So, here is how this will work ...

To enter for a chance to win a copy of Immortalis Carpe Noctem, all you have to do is ask an interview-type question (try not to ask one that has already been asked). For every question you ask you will get a chance to win. Limit of 5 questions please. (Please post your email address with your questions so I have a way to contact you if you win)

I will be checking in at multiple times all week to compile and answer questions. Answers will be posted in a separate blog.

On Friday morning,  March 26th, two winners will be picked (via random name draw. If you asked 5 questions, your name will be entered in 5 times) and I will post the names of the winners.

It's that simple! So go ahead, ask away and good luck!

Great idea! Here I go.
1. What's the hardest part of writing for you?
2. Did anyone ever share 1 piece of advice that you still use today?
3. If YOU had 1 piece of advice to share with a new writer what would it be?
4. If you could only keep 5 books on your shelf - what would they be?
5. What do you get out of writing?

Can't wait to hear your response :)

Nice idea Katie, I'm not in it to win it but would still like to have a go at asking the questions...
1. Name your FAVOURITE vampire
2. Is there a sequel to your novel?
3. Name your 5-10 favourite books of all time

That will do for now until I think of more!

Hey Katie, this is a great twist on the author interview idea, ok so here are my questions:

1) Whats your favorite dish at Blueberry Hill?
2) Are you glad you lost your job, giving you the opportunity to finish your book?
3) If you could no longer write books, what other occupation would you like to pursue?
4) Have any of your friends or family been an inspiration for characters in any of your works?
5) If money was not an issue, where in the world would you live and why?

Good luck with everything, wish only the best for you and your!

1)What or whom was the inspiration for your main male M.C?
2)Do you prefer vampires more than any other creatures of the paranormal or are there others you like as well to write about?
3)And that question follows tithe this one, Do you feel you write better with a female or male perspective?
4)Do you see yourself writing a historical romance with a vampire twist?
Okay, okay, last one:
5) Out of the thousands of authors out there, Whom would you most like to meet and/or have them write a forward for one of your books?
