Chloe: Hello, readers.
Chloe: I'm here with Merit, star of the Chicagoland Vampires series.
Merit: Aw, you're too kind.
Mallory: What's all this?
Merit: I'm having a chat with Chloe.
Mallory: *Pouting* Without me?
Chloe: *wincing* It's kind of a lead heroine conversation.
Mallory: *Arching evil eyebrow* And you think I'm not a lead heroine? I can do MAGIC, sunshine. MAGIC. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
Merit: *Rolling eyes and patting seat beside her* Fine. Have a seat, Sabrina.
Mallory: *squeeing, takes a seat* Now, where were we?
Chloe: I was just introducing everyone. So, we've got Merit and Mallory, the lead heroines of the Chicagoland Vampires series. Ladies, why don't you tell us what the books are about?
Mallory: Oh, I got this one. *Hitching a thumb at Merit* Nerdly type becomes vampire, crushes on blondie.
Merit: I am not crushing on anyone.
Mallory: Whatevs. And to add interest, I discover I have magical talents. *Makes woo-woo sounds like flitting hands through air*
Merit: She also discovers she's attracted to bossy types.
Mallory: God, ain't that the truth?
Chloe: I think that's good enough. How about Twice Bitten? That's the third book in the series, and it will be released on July 6. That's only two weeks away!
Merit: I'm really excited. There's some pretty exciting things going on in Chicago.
Mallory: With blondie.
Merit: *slowly turning head toward Mallory* I don't think that's any of Chloe's business.
Chloe: I'd disagree, but let's stay on track. Merit, any adjustments you're making for the third book in the series?
Merit: Well, I'm getting a bit more used to the vampire thing, especially since the pieces really fell together after Celina shoved me around. So that's nice.
Chloe: And how are you coping with that?
Merit: The senses can be a little overwhelming at times, but it's nice to feel like there's only just me in my head.
Mallory: Except when Morgan or Ethan use that woo-woo telepathic stuff. Or Lindsey uses her psychic mojo.
Merit: True. Except for that.
Chloe: And Mallory, how do you figure into Book Three?
Mallory: Well, I don't want to give it all away, but I'd say I definitely play a key role.
Merit: --I'm not sure I'd say 'key'.
Mallory: Well, I play a role, anyway. As you know, homeslice over here and I have some issues to work through, so we get into that a lot. But why am I telling you this? You wrote the book, right?
Chloe: Last time I checked.
Merit: I mean, I don't want to be rude, but why are you interviewing us about a book you wrote? Shouldn't you be answering the questions?
Chloe: *Blushing* And that's all the time we have today. Thanks so much for joining us, and I hope you all have a chance to check out TWICE BITTEN on July 6!
Well, July 6th is certainly marked on my calendar! As an added treat, I have a prize pack of Twice Bitten swag to give away, which includes a Twice Bitten bookmark, Firespell bookmark, CV pen and "I've been Twice Bitten!" silicone wristband
