I am so excited to have a stop on the SWEET PERIL Blog Tour. I am also so sad that today is the last day of the tour. It’s been almost a year, to the day, since the author stopped by for the SWEET EVIL Blog Tour for an interview and “this or that” grilling. (If you’d like to check it out, it’s HERE.)
This time around I let Wendy, Anna and Kai off easy. I only asked just a few questions. Because the author needs to get back to writing and editing SWEET RECKONING so that the agonizing wait for its release doesn’t get worse due to missed deadlines and delayed release dates. And Anna and Kai need to get back to….
I read – and love, love, love, love, loved – SWEET PERIL. I even managed to wrangle my thoughts for my review. But only just barely. There is some rambling involved.
I’m now just hoping this next thirteen or so months moves very, very quickly so that I can find out how this amazing series ends. Not that I want it to, of course. With all the world-building I could totally see this as a five-book series. At least.
While my “This… That… or The Other” guest post isn’t the longest of posts, it is so full of win. Wendy Higgins’ answers just make me grin, Anna’s make me smile and Kai’s make me blush. I’m so very curious if you’ll feel the same.
So, I’ll stop rambling. And I’ll let you discover it for yourself. Some questions do reference SWEET PERIL but they’re not in the least bit spoiler-y.
But first here’s a little bit about this just released second book in The Sweet Trilogy. The guest post follows, along with some information about the author, the very awesome giveaway and the other stops on this tour.
Oh and I just have to say thank you to the amazing Wendy Higgins for stopping by, for sharing her characters for a few brief moments, and for writing a series that is unforgettable.
Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?
BOOK: SWEET EVIL, SWEET PERIL or SWEET RECKONING
Wendy – Sweet Evil has my heart a smidge more than the others, probably because there were no deadlines or pressures to “get it right” – just pure inspiration for fun.
LOVE STORY (yes I’m asking again with a twist): Eternal love, unrequited love or forbidden love
Wendy – Forbidden love!!!
SCENE: In the kitchen, in the closet or on the island
Wendy – In the kitchen, baby!
ENDING (yes I’m fishing here!): Happily ever after, unhappily ever after or tragic but hopeful
Wendy – I’m a HEA kind of girl, but the road to the HEA must be paved in heartache.
BAD BOY: Dark and dangerous, like candy – hard on the outside but with a soft center – or all bark but no bite
Wendy – Is there a question here? ‘Cause I like all that. Especially dark and dangerous…like candy…
LOVE SCENE a.k.a. sexy times: Hot and steamy, a tantalizing tease or sweet and innocent
Wendy – I’m torn between Hot and Steamy or Tantalizing Tease. I’m going to go with TT to build tension.
On the road, cooking dinner on doing laundry
Anna – I do like cooking, but on the road is where it’s at.
Dark and mysterious, wicked but redeemable or sexy but sweet
Anna – Sexy but sweet. I am SO over mysterious, lol!
Blake, Kopano or Jay (and no you can’t say Kai!)
Anna – Oy vey! You’re going to get me in trouble… *whispers* Kopano…
Fiktshun – I sort of guessed you’d say “on the road.” But you seemed to have a lot of fun doing laundry. 😉 And LOL sorry about the last question. I just had to ask. I mean, ya know, after….
All night, all day or always
Kai – Yes, yes, and yes. Must I choose?
Love, lust or infatuation
Kai – Is this a trick question? What would you do if I said love, eh? Would you even take me seriously? ha
By the pool, in the bedroom or against the washer
Kai – Damn. I…hm. Wow, that’s hard. Okay then. Right. Against the washer, luv.
Fiktshun – Noooooo… you don’t have to choose. And I would totally take you seriously. I mean, my blog is called Fiktshun for a reason. Reality does not have to enter the picture. And… um… hard you say?
After earning a bachelors in Creative Writing from George Mason University and a masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford, Wendy taught high school English until becoming a mommy. Writing Young Adult (YA) stories gives her the opportunity to delve into the ambiguities of those pivotal, daunting, and exciting years before adulthood.
She lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, daughter, and son. Sweet Evil is her debut novel.
