Goldilox and the Three Scares!
Author Interviews and Guest Posts
I love Halloween! So I wrangled in some of my favorite authors and asked them to participate in this event. And they said yes! Plus, each day each author has a wonderful giveaway for you!
Day 4: Kendare Blake
I asked author Kendare Blake if she could put me in touch with Anna - the Girl of Nightmares herself - so I could ask her some questions.
Read on for my interview with Anna!
Anna: It was.....not so different. Simpler. Slower. When I remember it I remember it being very quiet. But not safe. Never safe.
Goldilox: I know your death was really tragic and untimely. If you had lived instead of died, what would be the one thing you would want to do?
Anna: I wanted to travel. Lots of places. Across the ocean. I wanted to do lots of things.
Goldilox: How does it feel when you transition from regular Anna to that terrifically scary Anna?
Anna: Better now that Cassio broke the curse. It feels like power now instead of rage. It feels warm.
Goldilox: What were you thinking the first time you saw Cas? Was it love at first sight? Or kill kill kill at first sight?
Anna: Love at first sight? No. It was..."What" at first sight. I could hear that knife of his, singing in my ears. He looked like someone I didn't recognize, but had been waiting for.
Goldilox: Okay, tell us the truth, is Cas a good kisser? Give us the details!
Anna: I don't suppose I'm a very good judge. But yes, he is. He's very tender. I don't think he's done it much either. But don't tell him I said so.
Goldilox: What do you really think about Carmel? Did you ever think she might be competition?
Anna: No, I.....She's so pretty. So different from me. I might have wished I was alive like her, but what use was that? It felt stupid to envy her, or wonder how he felt about her. It was something I didn't have any business with. And now, well...now, she's the closest thing I have to a girl friend.
Goldilox: Let's say you got to be a normal teenager. What yummy junk food would you just 'die' to eat (forgive the pun...)?
Anna: There are these bags of cut potatoes. In all different flavors. Sour Cream and Onion. Dill Pickle. Avocado Ranch. They sound so strange. I'd love to try them.
Goldilox: What do you think of this Kendare chick who is telling your story? Is she pretty cool or are you going to have to go all 'scary Anna' on her pretty soon?
Anna: That fact that she's still alive says a lot. I've never had to frighten or threaten her. Not even once. We're on the opposite sides of the looking glass. As long as Cas trusts her, I'll leave her alone.
Kendare: Anna and her veiled threats. Ridiculous. She knows on which side her bread is buttered. Thanks so much for having her by for the Halloween Event!
Thank you to Kendare and Anna for stopping by the blog today!
I tire of writing these things in the third person. So. I write fiction, apparently mostly YA. I didn't know this, but like Stephen King says, writers are the last ones to know what it is they've written. My first novel,Sleepwalk Society is a college story. I guess it falls into that no man's land they call, "New Adult". Anna Dressed in Bloodand Girl of Nightmares are teen horror. My short fiction can be found online in numerous places.
But enough about that. When I am not writing or reading, you can generally find me sitting around wondering what the hell I'm going to do with my life. That, or being a gastronome, plotting a new recipe. Perhaps on a run or hike, playing tennis or watching Big Cat Diaries with my feline. This summer I have saved a total of three turtles during attempted road crossings.
