Contest Now Closed
As you *might* know, I have a book releasing February 5.
For those of you new to my books - Mine to Possess is about a dark, dangerous leopard shapeshifter, Clay, and Tally, a human female with a past inextricably entertwined with Clay's. Their story is very raw, very emotional, and I think you'll love it *grin* Follow the link to read excerpts and find out more.
But, I'm not the only one with a book out on Feb 5. Fellow Berkley authors Meljean Brook, Jaci Burton, Joey Hill & Dakota Cassidy, also have releases on that date. Between the five of us, we've cooked up a round robin interview and contest.
There are five interview questions. Each one of us is hosting the answer to one question, and doing a giveaway in connection with it! So that equals five chances to win stuff! Here's the question I'm hosting.
QUESTION 2: If you could have any paranormal power in the universe/be any kind of paranormal creature, what would you choose?
And the answers!
Jaci Burton ~ Riding Wild: Invisibility. Oh the conversations I could eavesdrop on! I could become a gossip columnist, and then I'd be right all the time. And famous. *grin*
Meljean Brook ~ Demon Night: I'd want incredible luck, because it gives you wonderful opportunities, but you don't ever earn anything that's not yours (I don't handle guilt well). I'd win the lottery, but still write and my writing will still have to be good to be published. I'd win vacations, but I'd still have to put myself out there to enjoy them. I'd be lucky enough to meet a great guy (and it was pure luck that let me meet that special one) but I would still have to work to make the relationship last. A charmed life would be a very, very good life.
Either that, or I'd be Superman, and use my powers to take over the world (a world where everyone lurves romance. *g*)
Dakota Cassidy ~ The Accidental Werewolf: I call vampire. Though, if folklore is true, I wouldn't be indulging in French fries, but I think it's a fair swap for not aging. It would mean I'd get to be 41 forevah. Oh, wait... I might have to take that back--if I was going to choose to be a vampire--I'd much rather it was at the age of say, 21 when my butt was much perkier :)
Joey Hill ~ The Mark of the Vampire Queen: Aw, Dakota took my answer for paranormal power – I mean, as a vampire I’d never have to worry about weight, crow’s feet… Of course, supposedly nothing but blood would ever taste good, and I would REALLY miss chocolate. Chocolate versus immortality… I never realized that would be a deal breaker, but I think it is… When they have those books where the vampire gets tediously angsty about how much his immortality, drop-dead gorgeousness and superhuman strength sucks for him, he should REALLY be focusing on the loss of chocolate. Or for a guy, it might be pizza… So then I thought – invisibility, and darn, but Jaci got that one, too – I swear, this is what happens when you drag your butt and turn in your questions last. I’d want that because I’m such a huge coward and would like to be able to disappear from the most frightening things in life – psycho serial kidnappers, social engagements… So let’s see, what’s left? I think I’d like to be a mermaid. I love the water, particularly the ocean, and considering 70% of the world’s surface is water, I can only imagine what wonderful things you’d discover if you had the ability to go as deeply into that world as you wished. And according to the fairy tale, you live about 300 years, so that wouldn’t be bad.
Nalini Singh ~ Mine to Possess: I'm fascinated by pychic abilities - I'm sure this comes as a big surprise since I write about the Psy *grin* - I think I'd like to have a strong ability in that area. Perhaps telepathy. But controllable. I don't want to go crazy listening to a million conversations.
I'd also like to fly. So I'd be a winged telepath!
Giveaway: I'm giving away a signed copy of An Enchanted Season (if you've already got that, we'll work out a substitution), and the other authors are giving away great prizes of their own.
To enter, just leave a comment before Sunday Feb 3, Noon, PST, with your answer to the same question - what paranormal ability would you like?
And don't forget to visit the other four authors (Meljean, Jaci, Joey & Dakota) to enter their contests and read the answers to the other questions!
