Interview with Katie MacAlister, Author of Dragon Soul

Please give a warm welcome to Katie MacAlister! She dropped by the virtual offices to answer a few questions.

What would readers be surprised to find out about you?

[KM]  Goodness. So many things, I would expect. Perhaps the fact that I never went to high school (but did go to college). Or that I wanted to be an astrophysicist. Or maybe that I have a bunch of very slight touches of facial blindness, dyslexia, and synesthesia. All of which makes it an adventure when writing out a check that has amounts using 4 or S (both of which are red).

Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day?

Q&A and Giveaway: Dragon Storm by Katie MacAlister

Katie MacAlister dropped by the virtual offices to answer a few questions! Be sure to enter the giveaway, too!

Do you have any favorite book boyfriends of your own?

Oh, mercy, just line my books up and start reading off the hero names. I’ve said before that I write books for myself first, and that’s absolutely true. I love all of my heroes, and it’s only because publishers won’t let me write all the heroines as me that I bother with writing those dishy men females who are worthy of them.

Outside of my books, I was one of those girls who grew up with the hots for Sherlock Holmes. As an adult, I’ve been quite fond of several of Georgette Heyer heroes, particularly those who give in to their senses of humor (Sir Tristram from Talisman Ring, and Freddy Standen from Cotillion).

Interview and Giveaway: The Bride Wore Denim by Lizbeth Selvig

This morning Lizbeth Selvig dropped by to answer a few questions in celebration of the release of The Bride Wore Denim.  Check it out!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in five words or less.

[Lizbeth Selvig] Friendly, Empathetic, Superchatty, Extraverted, Loyal

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?

[Lizbeth Selvig] I never leave home without a notebook and at least five pens in my purse. I don’t know why the pens except that I’m kind of a pen/pencil slut—I love them. Plus, you never know when someone might need one! My notebook is my safety net for ideas or observations since I won’t remember things I think of without writing them down. It’s also right there if I’m somewhere boring and I find I have few minutes to write!

Interview and Giveaway: Power Play by Tiffany Snow

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Tiffany!  What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?

[Tiffany Snow] I’d say my cell phone, but that’s probably everyone’s answer. So I’ll change it up a bit and add that I won’t leave the house without putting on my eyebrow gel (don’t ask—it’s a weird makeup thing that I feel naked without).
