Please welcome...Chloe Neill!!! With a Giveaway to Boot!!!

Please join me in welcoming Chloe Neill, the author behind the Chicagoland Vampires and Dark Elite series! In honor of the upcoming release of Twice Bitten (book the third in the Chicagoland Vampire series) on July 6th, I bring you this guest post!

Chloe & Merit Have a Sit Down

Chloe: Hello, readers.
Merit: *Waves*
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! I am certainly jealous of whoever wins!

Here's the skinny on how to win:

-Giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada residents only
-To enter, leave a comment here and answer this question: what book is at the top of your TBR pile this summer? You won't get extra contest love if you say Twice Bitten, but feel free to throw that in there! No answer to the question = not eligible to win.
-Make sure there is a way to contact you in your entry- email address, blog address, twitter name, something that you check so you'll know if you win. The winner will be announced here as well.
-Giveaway ends Friday, July 9th. at 11:59 pm EST

And that's it!

LOL! Great chat! You can tell they all really love each other! ;)

My TBL list is crazy (and a bit scary)! So many books, and not enough time! I have so many plans to tackle some of the series I've missed out on. Probably on the top of the list is Outlander and The Dresden Files.

Cathie said...

I have to be honest and say I don't have just one TBR book. I can't pick just one. I'm serious. I buy them as I find sales so if it's on my list I get it even if it's not thee #1 book on the list so in all fairness I can't list one book. If it disqualifies me, I understand. :)
