Interview with Elsie Chapman, Author of Dualed

I am super geeked to welcome Elsie Chapman to the virtual offices today.  Her book DUALED, Random House, hits stores shelves February 26th 2013.  This is one of my most anticipated 2013 reads, so I’m thrilled to chat with Elsie.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Elsie Chapman]  Mangler and consumer of words, nurturer of little humans and furballs, lover and friend, loud music hound, sushi and caffeine enthusiast.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Dualed?

[Elsie Chapman]  At its heart, I can say it’s a story about finding self-worth, and what it means to different people, under different circumstances.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Elsie Chapman]  My son asked me one day, how did we know we all didn’t have a twin out there and just didn’t know about them. So the idea pretty much took off from there. I wanted a girl MC who was strong but still vulnerable, and a main love interest who was able to let her be her own person.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe West?

[Elsie Chapman]  Loyal, solid, stubborn.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If West had a theme song, what would it be?

[Elsie Chapman]  Run by Snow Patrol. I listened to that one a lot while I was writing Dualed!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing West won’t leave the house without.

[Elsie Chapman]  Her gun. Or her set of switchblades.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are your greatest creative influences?

[Elsie Chapman]  Music, movies, lyrics, the odd quote.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?

[Elsie Chapman]  Music, tea, time. I tend to write in major gluts, so if I’m on a roll, I just kind of disappear for a while.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?

[Elsie Chapman]  The very last book I read that still had me thinking about it days later was The Curse of the Wendigo by Ricky Yancey. It’s book 2 of the Monstrumologist series, and I absolutely cannot wait until I have time to read book 3, The Isle of Blood.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?

[Elsie Chapman]  For reading in general, I can’t remember. But I read a lot of Stephen King when I was young, and he was the author who kept me reading.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Elsie Chapman]  My to-be-read pile keeps growing, so I try to work on that. I’ll clear out the PVR, marathon some movies, bake. Most recently, while I was waiting for edits to come in, I decided to finally check out Tumblr. It was way too much fun so now I’m on that, as well. Though it’s not author or book or writing related at all, just super random stuff I happen to enjoy.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

[Elsie Chapman]  You can find me at all these places! And thank you for having me on your blog, Julie!

DUALED Blurb:

Two of you exist. Only one will survive.

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.

Elsie Chapman’s suspenseful YA debut weaves unexpected romance into a novel full of fast-paced action and thought-provoking philosophy. When the story ends, discussions will begin about this future society where every adult is a murderer and every child knows there is another out there who just might be better.

About the book:

Merry Christmas, Mrs. Robinson by Delilah Marvelle

Lady Jane left her father, the Earl of Chadwick, and the ton behind to experience life on the stage. After a disastrous marriage, the widow is living on the edge of poverty, determined to guard her heart, when a secret admirer from her past demands a second chance.

Shy and retiring Martin Nicholas Pierce, the Sixth Duke of Somerset, has carried a torch for Lady Jane since her youth, but he is five years her junior. When she married another man, he left for Europe, determined to put her out of his mind. After returning to find Lady Jane free, he vows to replace the memories of her cursed Twelfth Night with a new beginning.

The Twelve Days of Seduction By Maire Claremont

Alexander Hunt, Eighth Duke of Berresford, is aware his ward’s governess isn’t quite what she seems. Although Miss Flint is beautiful and intelligent, she misrepresented herself to gain employment, and he threatens to give her the sack mere days before Christmas.

Desperate to convince the sexy duke not to tear her from the little girl she’s grown to adore, Adriana challenges him to seduce her before the Twelve Days of Christmas have come to an end, although she fears it may cost her heart. Alexander accepts the challenge, unconcerned that he has as much to lose, if not more, than the delectable Miss Flint.

Meet Author Maire Claremont!

 

Please welcome Maire Claremont to the virtual offices!  Maire also has a story in Entangled Publishing’s Christmas anthology All I Want For Christmas Is A Duke.  She is here to chat about her story, The Twelve Days of Seduction. 

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Maire Claremont] I am a total gypsy soul! I love to travel about and constantly see new things and new people. I’m a book and movie aholic and I’m never happier than after a marvelous play.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about The Twelve Days of Seduction?

[Maire Claremont] The Twelve Days of Seduction is a nod to Jane Eyre and features a heroine’s mother, a lady runs away with her drawing master. The heroine fights her way to a much better life, but has a number of secrets! And when her employer, the duke, finds out there is hell to pay. There’s also a whole lot of pleasure!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Maire Claremont] Delilah Marvelle and I both wanted to write stories featuring a duke and I loved the idea of doing a story up in a isolated castle where the romance is all part of the landscape too. My heroine, Adriana, insisted on being a cheeky young woman who’d been masquerading as the perfect young woman. I loved creating her.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Adriana?

[Maire Claremont] Clever. Resourceful. Loyal

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Alexander had a theme song, what would it be?

[Maire Claremont] Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Adriana won’t leave the house without.

[Maire Claremont] A BOOK!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is Alexander’s greatest regret?

[Maire Claremont] Not taking a chance on love when he had the chance. It has haunted him for years.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What did you enjoy most about writing this story?

[Maire Claremont] I loved exploring Victorian Christmas traditions! And I adored bringing two characters who couldn’t dare to express their desire, even though they had secretly wanted each other for so long.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is  your favorite holiday themed book?

[Maire Claremont] With out a doubt, A Christmas Carol by Dickens. I try to read it every year.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

[Maire Claremont] I LOVE to hear from readers, especially since I’m recently published. Its fun! You can find me at my website, Maireclaremont.com, on twitter @maireclaremont, and Facebook!

I look forward to meeting you all!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!

Meet Author Delilah Marvelle!

Today we are celebrating the release of All I Want For Christmas Is A Duke, a holiday anthology from Entangled Publishing from their new Scandalous line.  Delilah Marvelle’s  story Merry Christmas, Mrs. Robinson is featured in the book.  She’s visiting the virtual offices to chat, and later this morning, Maire Claremont will be stopping by.  Later, check back to enter for a chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card, courtesy of Entangled Publishing!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Delilah Marvelle] I have to always be doing something or I go crazy, lol.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Merry Christmas, Mrs. Robinson?

[Delilah Marvelle] I’ve always wanted to write a Christmas themed historical romance.  Always.  I just didn’t have the right story to go with it.  I waited and waited for something special to inspire me and oddly, that inspiration came when I least expected it.  I was re-watching ‘The Graduate’ with my husband when my characters whizzed into focus.  I simply *had* to a write a story about an older woman and a younger man set in Dickens’s era during Christmas.  I wanted the hero to be the ultimate gentleman.  To the point of being painfully shy.  As for the heroine?  I wanted her to be everything the hero wasn’t, meaning overly confident.  In honor of her being the older woman (and the fact that the idea came to me as I watching ‘The Graduate’) I was totally going to call her Mrs. Robinson even if I had to marry her off to someone other than the hero (which I did).  The similarities between ‘The Graduate’ and my story, however, end there.  Because the real story is about a very special re-union between two souls who weren’t ready to love when they first met, but are more than ready for it now.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Martin?

[Delilah Marvelle] Romantic, well educated and quiet.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Jane had a theme song, what would it be?

[Delilah Marvelle] Chariot’s Rise by Lizzie West.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Martin won’t leave the house without.

[Delilah Marvelle] His hat.  He’s very traditional and doesn’t just wear it to keep his head warm :)

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is Jane’s greatest regret?

[Delilah Marvelle] Having hurt her father to achieve her own dream.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What did you enjoy most about writing this story?

[Delilah Marvelle] Being able to weave themes of historical Christmas.  There are so many fascinating and lovely Victorian traditions I picked a few to weave in.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is your favorite holiday themed book?

[Delilah Marvelle] Without a doubt, A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

[Delilah Marvelle] They can email me through my website (www.DelilahMarvelle.com) and I’m on Facebook and Twitter. I always look forward to hearing from readers!

Waiting on Wednesday–Doll Bones by Holly Black

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

I loved Holly Black’s Curse Workers series, so I am looking forward to anything by her!  Doll Bones looks pretty cool, in a kinda creepy sort of way.

 

Three kids — Zachary, Poppy and Alice — who go on a journey, despite their own uncertain friendship, to bury a doll that may or may not be made from human bones.

What are you waiting on?

Interview with Adrian Faulkner, Author of The Four Realms

Adrian Faulkner, author of The Four Realms, is visiting the virtual offices today.  Please welcome him.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Adrian Faulkner] Ex-pop culture journalist turned Urban Fantasy writer. Lover of books, movies, TV and games. Good sense of humour. Complete & utter geek.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about The Four Realms?

[Adrian Faulkner] The story really starts with a dead body. When the novel starts we see half-vampire, Darwin and his friend and fallen angel, Cassidy running along the streets of London after Darwin smells the blood of the corpse. Cassidy’s had him surviving on rat’s blood for a while now to stop him killing, and it’s left Darwin gaunt and sickly. So Darwin sees a freshly dead corpse as a way to get a proper meal and keep Cassidy happy. It’s on the corpse they discover a notebook in a mysterious language.

It’s not long before Maureen Summerglass, an 82 year old gatekeeper between worlds, learns of the death of one of the wizards of the Friary of New Salisbury whilst visiting London. Suspecting a cover up, she breaks a lifetime of protocol and sneaks through the gateway in her cellar into New Salisbury hoping to find answers.

Darwin soon finds that someone else is after the notebook and willing to wipe out every last vampire if necessary. Maureen discovers danger in a world that is unlike that she has been lead to believe but instead one of fast food, black market goods and Tuk Tuks.

Darwin tries desperately to escape the mysterious Mr West and his cohorts, trying to save the vampire survivors in the process. Maureen, meanwhile, discovers that she might just be the first human female to be able to do magic; which is going to come in handy as people are trying to kill her as well.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Adrian Faulkner] The concept for the land of Venefasia where the city of New Salisbury lies was born out of watching a news report on a remote Amazon tribe and seeing one of the kids wearing a Nike T-Shirt. It got me thinking how if the wardrobe from CS Lewis’s Narnia novels existed, it wouldn’t be used for wartime evacuees to go to tea with Fauns but for smuggling black market goods, weapons and drugs. As a result, the world of Venefasia has a bit more of a third world / Iron curtain feel than the typical medieval basis of a lot of fantasy.

At the time I first started work on The Four Realms, Buffy and as a result the kick ass female was really prevalent. I wanted to do something different and as a result decided there weren’t enough elderly protagonists. From that Maureen was pretty much there from day one. She’s been a load of fun to write.

Darwin and Cassidy took a bit more time. Originally they were a bit more “Lone wolf and cub” – an elderly warrior / protector and young innocent. As time went by their ages came closer together. Darwin became a bit more of an idealistic young man, and Cassidy became a lot more fun and kooky. She’s probably the most difficult to write as it’s hard to keep her light and fun with everything Darwin and her go through.

Mr West was the character who brought it together though. Who and what he is… well, that’s a bit of a spoiler but I’m hoping readers will like it and get an idea of the direction I’d like to take the story in through future novels.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Darwin?

[Adrian Faulkner] “lack of identity” – He’s half vampire and the vampire council has always viewed him as a bit of a freak. But at the same time it’s hard to identify as human when you need blood to survive. Cassidy wants to bring more of the humanity out of him but that puts him in conflict with his desire to be seen as an equal by his vampire brethren.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Maureen won’t leave the house without.

[Adrian Faulkner] Probably her handbag. It would hold her keys, her purse and about a hundred tissues

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things will you never find in Darwin’s pockets?

[Adrian Faulkner] At the start of the book both he and Cassidy are homeless, so I guess a mobile cell phone, keys and money would be obvious answers.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is Maureen’s greatest regret?

[Adrian Faulkner] I think over the course of the novel, we see it’s her dedication to the Friary. She’s served them unquestioningly since the mantle of gatekeeper was passed to her by her mother. And as we get to see, they haven’t been too good at looking after her. Her house is a bit ramshackled. She dare not let anyone into the house in case they find the big oak door in the cellar. So she suffers with no heating, in fear of her nosey neighbours, only to discover that the Friary is thinking of closing her gateway and throwing her out on the streets.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are your greatest creative influences?

[Adrian Faulkner] I have three. The first is Star Wars which just unleashed my imagination. It was like an explosion going off in my head when I first saw it. The second was the GI Joe comic book. On the surface it was a stupid toy tie-in but writer Larry Hama didn’t let that stop him from writing some fantastic characters. I remember looking up from one issue back in the 80s / early 90s and thinking to myself “Good story is character driven.” It was a revelation at the time. The final influence is Lord of the Rings, a book so detailed, so imaginative, it still blows my mind.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?

[Adrian Faulkner] A computer. I have been known to write draft chapters in longhand when they’ve been particularly tricky but mostly I like to type them directly into the computer

Diet Coke. This is my poison of choice. I drink way too much of the stuff.

Music. I find it difficult to write without music and own a ridiculous number of orchestral scores from films, television and games.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?

[Adrian Faulkner] Probably Lou Morgan’s Blood and Feathers. I know Lou so thought I had a good idea of what to expect, but sometimes a friend’s book can surprise you in a really good way. Thoroughly enjoyed it

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?

[Adrian Faulkner] Probably CS Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I’d been a big reader before I read that at eight years old but that book was the one that made me want to be a writer. Looking back now, I can see all the faults, but even so I still have a fondness for it.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Adrian Faulkner] In my spare time, I’m a very active Geocacher. This is the hobby where you go hunting for hidden Tupperware in the countryside armed only with a GPS. It’s a lot of fun and is a good source of exercise. That said, I’ve been so busy with the book, I’ve hardly had time to do any these past few months

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

[Adrian Faulkner] I have my own website over at www.adrianfaulkner.com where I blog and give updates. I’m also fairly active on Twitter as @figures

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!

The Four Realms is available now!  Please click the link to order a digital copy from Amazon.

About the book

Half-vampire Darwin stumbles across a corpse on the streets of London, and in a pocket discovers a notebook in a mysterious language. Divided between human ethics and vampire bloodlust, Darwin finds himself both condemner and saviour of a race who’ve never considered him one of their own. Now, he must try and lead the survivors to sanctuary in New Salisbury before Mr West completes his genocide of the vampires in his quest to obtain the book…

Maureen Summerglass is eighty-two years old, and a prisoner in her ramshackle home. She is afraid to let people enter in case they discover the oak door in her cellar. Threatened with homelessness and retirement from her job as a gatekeeper between worlds, Maureen breaks protocol when the death of a close friend is covered up… and enters the city of New Salisbury to search for his missing notebook. There, she discovers a world unlike the one of myth and fairy tale she imagined, and instead one of black market economies, brand names and tuk tuks. As she investigates, not only is she in extreme danger, but discovers she may be the first human female able to use magic…

“An imaginative foray into a dark world of danger and adventure. Hang onto your hat!” – Gail Z. Martin, author of The Dread
