    A MAD ZOMBIE PARTY Blog Tour: ‘Character Phobia’ Guest Post + Giveaway

    ZombieParty_Banner

    I am so excited to be a part of the A MAD ZOMBIE PARTY Blog Tour hosted by Kismet Book Touring. I love, love, LOVE this series and was over the moon that it did not end with THE QUEEN OF ZOMBIE HEARTS.

    I may have been a little late to the party – I only just got the chance to devour this installment – but OMG this book. So many, many feels. It was thrilling. And nerve-wracking. And heartbreaking. And maddening. And holy wow, was it sexy.

    I never thought that I could like Camilla Marks. But that happened. I never thought things could get worse for the slayers. But that happened too. I knew I would be heartbroken for Frosty. I knew I would be reluctant to read about Frosty and anyone other than Kat. I knew I would love getting glimpses at what was going on with Ali and Cole. And I did not think Frosty’s story could as hot as Ali and Cole’s, but yeah, it was.

    Anyway… for my stop today I get to share Milla’s phobia. If you asked me how much I loved the idea of hosting Milla before I read A MAD ZOMBIE PARTY it would have been “not at all.” Though I would have loved to have known what she was afraid of so I could wish that whatever it was she feared would come true. Now, though, I am totally stoked to host her. And if you’d like to know what her phobia is, be sure to check out the phobia graphic below.

    And if you’d like to know what five other characters’ and six bloggers’ phobias are, be sure to visit the other stops on the tour.

    I’d thought about rambling about some of my phobias, but then this post would go on endlessly. I was also afraid to share my list in case someone I knew decided to use my fears against me… hmm… I guess I’ll have to add that to my list of phobias. But I will reveal a couple – fear of fire, fear of spiders… or any insects. *shudders*

    There is also an amazing giveaway as part of the tour. If you’d like the chance to win some fab prizes, enter in the Rafflecopter.

    Description…

    The battle rages on.

    Ali Bell and Cole Holland’s crew of zombie slayers thought they’d won the war against Anima Industries, the evil company responsible for capturing and experimenting on zombies in an effort to discover the secret to immortality. In the last epic clash, the slayers lost many of their crew and closest friends. But Frosty, the ice man himself, has not recovered from one casualty in particular—the love of his life, Kat Parker.

    On the path to self-annihilation, Frosty receives a message from beyond—Kat’s spirit returns, insisting he partner with rogue slayer Camilla Marks. Frosty will do anything for Kat. Except that. Camilla is the one who betrayed them all, leading to Kat’s death.

    But when Anima rises from the grave to become a force the slayers may not have the strength to overcome, Frosty, Camilla and all the slayers will have to work together to survive. And one broken slayer will learn that sometimes, the line between hate and attraction is blurred…and the road to redemption isn’t through revenge, but in letting go of the past and grabbing hold of the future.

    She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

    Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

    Her father was right. The monsters are real….

    To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

    She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her…from everyone. Now, with her best friend Kat at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole’s secret and learn to fight the darkness.

She’s connected to the woman responsible for killing — and turning — her boyfriend’s mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima — even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.

    Through the Zombie Glass Blog Tour: Cole Holland Character Interview + Giveaway

    Through The Zombieglass Button_1

    Getting to be a part of the THROUGH THE ZOMBIE GLASS Blog Tour and getting to interview Cole Holland is a dream come true. No, really. It is. I feel a little like I might have fallen down a rabbit hole and ended up in some crazy mixed up world where nothing makes any sense.

    But I am not going to complain. Because being a part of this tour is awesome.

    I only somewhat recently had the pleasure of meeting Ali Bell and Cole Holland. And it’s been only a few weeks since I was able to continue their adventures in THROUGH THE ZOMBIE GLASS. Though I am still trying to recover from everything that happened in that sequel. It has not been at all easy.

    I love, love, love the White Rabbit Chronicles. This series is not at all what I imagined it to be. It’s so much better. And this sequel? It shredded me and left me in pieces. Over and over and over again. I was heartbroken, I was devastated, I was anxious, I was angry. This book put my emotions on one heck of a roller coaster.

    I have not yet written my review but this book has more than earned my off-the-menu six-star rating. It gave me everything I want in a read and so much more. Kick-a** fight scenes a plenty. Nerve-wracking suspense. Surprises. Heartbreak. Frustration. Angst. And, yes, there were tears. Especially when….

    Well, maybe I shouldn’t say exactly when that was.

    And I should probably get back on track. Because my stop on the tour today is not for a review but an interview. I had the pleasure – and oh yes it was a pleasure… mine anyway – of interviewing Cole Holland, a bad boy who is all sorts of awesome. If you haven’t met him yet, you are seriously missing out.

    I knew from the moment I met Cole that he would make it onto my top five favorite YA bad boys list. And even with everything that happened since I first met him, he is still a top fiver. And I am so totally stoked to have been able to ask him quite a few questions for my stop on the blog tour today.

    As this interview is one of my favorite character interviews I just had to include it before all the bookish details. But if you want to learn a little bit about this story and about Ali and Cole first, just scroll past the interview for the descriptions for both books in this series.

    Or you can head over to the White Rabbit Chronicles WEBSITE for a whole bunch of information about Alice Bell, Cole Holland, Kat Parker, Frosty, Reeve, Bronx and some of the other Slayers and characters or to learn more about Anima Industries and Asher High School.

    This tour also comes with a ton of amazing giveaways. Details and a chance to enter the Daily Giveaway are just a bit further below, along with information about the awesome Grand Prize Giveaway.

    But if you just can’t wait to see what Cole has to say about himself, Ali, the Hazmats, his hopes for our survival, and his ink….

    Meet_Cole

    First let me say thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog, Cole. I know that your job as a Slayer leaves very little time for you to do much else. Especially take part in an interview. So I will try to keep this as brief – and painless – as possible… though I might not succeed at either. You are way too intriguing.

    ***

    Cole-Holland-copyQ. As a new visitor to my site, could you tell me and my blog’s readers a little bit about yourself in fifteen words or less?

    Cole: I’d rather go down fighting than stand back and stay safe.

    Fiktshun: I wouldn’t doubt that for a second.

    ***

    Q. I’m not sure if you knew this, but Ali’s sister hinted that things were going to get difficult for you and Ali. If you had known, would you have believed her? And is Ali someone worth fighting for? Or is she someone you’d walk away from just as easily as you had your previous girlfriends?

    Cole: Ali is worth…anything.  Everything.  And past girlfriends are not up for discussion.  Sorry.

    Fiktshun: Awww. I’m so glad to hear that… well, what you said about Ali. But as far as your exes? If you ever feel like talking about them I have a lot of questions.

    ***

    Q. What of Ali’s many endearing qualities are your favorites? Is it the fact that she can make you smile? Is it her unending questions? Is it because she’s hot? Is it because she stands up to you?

    Cole:  When Ali loves, she loves with her whole heart.  There’s nothing held back.  You never have to wonder how she feels.  She’s open, honest.  Oh, is she honest.  She will give you the brutal truth every time.  And you can trust her with your life—I can trust her.  Do you know how rare that is?  How precious?

    Fiktshun: I do know how rare trust is. And honesty. I just wondered, given what happened….

    ***

    Q. You and your group of Slayers have a deep hatred for the Hazmats. What is it about what they’re doing that you despise the most?

    Cole: They endanger innocent people.  They hurt innocent people.  And they do it all in the name of science.  But the truth?  They do it because of greed.

    Fiktshun: What they’re doing is despicable. And what they did with… well, you know. I can’t imagine you were happy about that. At all.

    ***

    Q. Do you still have hope for our survival? What motivates you to keep on fighting?

    Cole:  Hope for our survival?  Sweetheart, I fight from a place of victory.  The zombies are the ones fighting from a place of defeat.  They’re already dead.  So, yeah, I have hope.

    Fiktshun: I am so relieved to hear you say that. What with the increase in their numbers and all… I’ve been more than a little bit worried. But if you have hope, that’s good enough for me.

    ***

    Q. You’ve lost a lot of friends along the way. What made you choose to memorialize them in ink on your body? And does it help you to get over their deaths?

    Cole: What we carry in our hearts is always manifest in our bodies.  If you love, it shines on your face.  If you hate, it etches itself into every line of your skin.  Tattooing is my way of bringing what’s inside to the outside.

    Fiktshun: Well that totally answers the one question I had but didn’t ask. *Grins.*

    ***

    Q. If Ali was one of those who didn’t survive, what would you do to honor her memory?

    Cole: I can’t think like that.  There’s being smart and planning ahead, but there’s also planning ahead and worrying.  Worry eats you alive and does no good, so I refuse to do it.

    Fiktshun: You say you refuse to worry, but weren’t you just the teensiest bit worried when that thing happened? I think you know which thing I’m talking about. I know I was worried.

    ***

    Q. You treat Ali as if she’s fragile and breakable. But she’s proved to you time and again that while breakable, she is anything but fragile. Do you not trust her abilities? What is it you fear most happening that hasn’t already happened?

    Cole: I trust Ali’s abilities more than I trust my own.  But I also value her life more than my own.  I protect what I value.  That’s all there is to it.

    Fiktshun: *Swoon.*

    ***

    Q. You keep pushing Ali away or keep her at a distance. Is it because your feelings for her are conflicted? Or is there some other reason?

    Cole: When it comes to Ali, I am not conflicted about my feelings.  I know exactly how I feel.  But I know how mercurial feelings can be, and just how untrustworthy, so I also know to proceed with caution.  But Ali is throwing me for a loop.  With her, I’m on new ground, trekking through uncharted territory.  I hate it as much as I love it.

    Fiktshun: Would you say Ali scares you just a little then? Or is it just your feelings that scare you?

    ***

    Q. How would you describe Ali in fifteen words or less?

    Cole: I can describe her in one.  Mine.

    Fiktshun: *Swoon* x10.

    ***

    Q. If you had any advice you could give to those of us who don’t have the ability to see zombies, what would it be?

    Cole: Start praying.

    Fiktshun: *Gulp.*

    Quickie_Qs

    Q. Favorite weapon?

    Cole: Crossbow.

    Q. Favorite fighting maneuver?

    Cole: Delivering the deathblow.

    Q. Favorite Ali moment?

    Cole: Every kiss.  Every touch.

    Fiktshun: *Sigh* … *swoon* … *sigh.*

    Q. Favorite tattoo?

    Cole: My newest one.

    Fiktshun: *Grin.*

    Q. Biggest regret?

    Cole: If you’ve read the book, you can guess.

    Fiktshun: I have read the book and I am pretty sure I know the answer to this question. But I am glad to know that it is a regret and a big one at that.

    Book Watch: Alice in Zombieland

     

    Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter will be released in the U.S. on September 25, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Harlequin TEEN, the print edition is 416 pages.

    Alice in Zombieland is the first book in author Gena Showalter’s White Rabbit Chronicles. The second book in the series, Through the Zombie Glass, is slated for release in 2013.

    ***

    There are so many amazing books releasing the week of September 25th but there’s been one book I’ve been waiting the longest for and that’s ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND by Gena Showalter. I have been dying to get my hands on this book. So there was absolutely no way I wouldn’t be putting it in the spotlight this week.

    I’ve been wary of books that rewrite history to include the undead, but Alice in Wonderland was already fiction. And while I’ve loved Alice’s story each of the many times I’ve read it, I just know I’m going to love Ali’s story, too.

    I want to know exactly what happened that made things change for her in an instant. I want to know how her father’s “paranoia and delusion” somehow became a reality. And I want to know just what things she could have done differently so that she wouldn’t be forced to avenge her family.

    But I also am dying to meet Cole Holland. I’m just so curious what his secrets are and why they are so dangerous. More dangerous, even, than the zombies. And I can’t wait to see just how kick-a** Ali Bell is in this series.

    I’ve been a fan of author Gena Showalter’s for quite awhile now. I love the fact that she decided to take on a classic and give it her own twist. I can’t wait to see just how she tackles both this book and the next and whether she’ll decide to take the series even further.

    I love the gorgeous cover. And I absolutely love the tagline, “Off with their heads.” While September 25th is only a few weeks away, the wait has been absolutely killing me and it can’t come soon enough.

    Classic fiction with a twist, innocence lost and zombies. And all of this awesome penned by Gena Showalter. Even with all the seriously amazing books releasing the week of the 25th, I say ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND is the Book to Watch this week.

    (Oh, and be sure to check out the excerpt on Amazon if you want to get a short peek before release date.)
