Author Interview + Contest: Aric Davis

Popping in today is Aric Davis, author of the newly released Nickel Plated, to answer some questions and bring you guys a giveaway of his book!

What was the hardest aspect of Nickel's life to write and develop?

His past. I love the idea of a sequel, or sequels, and holding back on what I think is one of the most interesting parts was not easy. That said, I think I gave enough of a taste, and it makes me look forward to finding out more about him. I hope other people feel the same way.

If you could pair Nickel with any character from any book, who would you pick?

Scout, from “To Kill a Mockingbird”. She’d need to be a little older, but she would be perfect. What a duo, but I’m not going to be the one to tackle Harper Lee’s leading lady. I’m brave enough for a lot, but not that! Still, Scout would be one heck of a partner in crime, and I think Holden Caulfield could be a good fit too.

You're traveling back in time with Nickel at your side! Where do you go?

In my world, we’re going to kill Adolf Hitler in 1921. In Nickel’s, I think we need to try and save his father.

If you were a demigod, who would your parent be?

Absolutely Dionysius, he seems like he’s always having a good time, and I don’t remember him being involved in too much conflict. Plus, I would be guaranteed to be the life of the party!

What kind of cake/confection would you describe yourself as?

Jelly donut. Cut me in half, and the guts fall out.

Thank you, Aric, for those awesome answers, and congrats on your release!

Contest is US only, and ends April 6.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Thanks for the spotlight, this is the first time I've heard of this book - sounds different/cool

  3. Haha, great interview! I'm with Aric, Dionysus sounds like an ideal guy to have around for a party. The whole him-being-the-god-of-wine-thing certainly doesn't hurt :)
