Author Interview + Contest: Mary Lindsey

Today I have Mary Lindsey, author of the fantastic upcoming book Shattered Souls. Let me tell you, I really do love this one, and I rather adore Mary, so this just seems like a perfect fit! Proof to why is that she was kind enough to answer my crazy interview questions, and took them in stride.

So check out the interview, then collect the last letter on this lovely week long blog tour, and then enter for your chance to win a signed ARC of Andrea Cremer's Wolfsbane!

Describe Linzi, Alden and Zak in three words each.

Lenzi: independent, intelligent, wounded

Alden: loyal, focused, plans ahead

Zak: sensitive, musical, lives in the moment

What is your favorite line from Shattered Souls?

Sometimes pain is good. It lets you know you're alive.

If you found Narnia in your closet, what would you do?

Grab my kids and go on an adventure... That, or check myself into the hospital.

You're a dinosaur for a day! What kind are you?

Pterodactyl, I've always wanted to fly!

If you were lost like Nemo, what would be your greatest obstacle in returning home?

Getting someone in my family to answer their cell phone, so I an tell them to come get me.

What form of transportation is your greatest nemesis?

Walking. I can trip over my own feet.

What kind of donut would you describe yourself as?

How about a kolache instead? You have to spend some time and actually bite into it in order to know what's really inside.

Aside from Voldemort, which Death Eater would you most like to fight?
It depends on what type of "fight" we're talking about. A one-on-one wrestling match with Draco Malfoy holds great appeal for me. *wink* If we're talking about a duel to the death, then, Bellatrix Lestrange.

For the record, I totally would be a velociraptor, just so I can do that creepy tap my ridiculously long claw on the floor thing. But thank you, Mary, for those answers! And I hope to one day see you in a duel with Bellatrix Lestrange...

Now, readers, the details for the contest because I know you are all dying to get your hands on Wolfsbane! One lucky winner will get to have this puppy in their hands in just a few weeks!

Disclaimer: The aforementioned puppy is actually the ARC. As cute as he is, you can't have MY puppy. Also, no ARCs were harmed, slobbered on, sniffed at, or otherwise endangered in the taking of this photo.

All week long, different blogs have featured Mary, and revealed a letter. If you need to go back to any, here's the links to help you out!
And MY letter, to close it out: A

Now that you have the letters, just fill out THIS form to enter! You MUST enter the unscrambled word to be entered, but you can gain an extra entry for adding Shattered Souls to your Goodreads shelf. If you've already added it, then you're already qualified for the extra entry! And if you spread the word, you can get another entry.

This contest IS International, and ends Friday May 27 at 11:59 pm CST!

No entries will be accepted through comments, but please be sure to leave Mary a comment and let her know what you think of her awesome answers! And a huge thanks to Mary for giving up her ARC for this contest, and to Andrea Cremer for signing it for us!
