Where have you been?
Do you have to ask?
Planning to take over the world, of course!
What have you been doing?
I started my new book, Optimal Red.
Oh, and I signed a contract
for Paper Wishes.
You need to get out more.
I mean, seriously,
you need a hobby.
Taking over the world?
Yes!!!!! That’s the best hobby ever!
And then we can have tea and crumpets and make totalitarian plans!
How about we just do an interview first.
Piff. You are just not fun.
But I guess I have no choice. Who’s here today?
You’re gonna be nice, right?
What’s that supposed to mean?
I’m always nice.
Do you know there is a little blue lady on your table?
Who are you calling little?
How dare you waltz your tallness in here and…
I hear you have a new book out this week.
What’s it called?
Yes I do!
It’s called Day After and it came out just this Monday.
I bet it’s a tall book about tall people who…
So, Emi, I know this is book two of a series. How hard is it to know that you’ve gotten it just right, and book two is good enough to follow book one?
An author never thinks her book is good enough, but sometimes, it’s time to let go and let the public have the story. I love the story, I love Mac and Winn, so now it’s time to share what’s been in my head.
Lame Response! Sounds like one of those lovey-dovey books.
Why would anyone want to read it?
Because it has a hot guy on the cover. Or a nerdy one.
Either way, *I* think he’s hot.
Well, I’ll give you kudos that he at least has a head.
I hate novels with headless men.
I’ll be deciding if it is okay or mot MISSY.
Does anything explode?
Only my head when someone compliments my book.
[turns to Jennifer]
She has an exploding-reappearing head?
Could be. You never know.
I have an alien on my table doing author interviews.
You never know what the stink is going to happen on this blog.
Okay Missy too-tall with an exploding head.
Tell me what this book is about.
I’m going to give you the blurb because honestly, it’s the best way to describe Winn’s side of things …
Demon crypts. Vampire lairs. Glowing angels. Sexy sirens. The stuff of fiction.
Or so Winn Thomas always thought. Since being accepted into the fold of the supernatural, he knows better. None of what he imagined is true, but everything he feared is, and binding himself to his Changeling girlfriend until her nineteenth birthday will give him an education far beyond what he’d get at his human high school.
Luckily, Winn’s not giving up, he won’t back down, and he definitely isn’t going to run away with his tail between his legs. After all, only werewolves have tails. Right? In this, the second of the 19th Year trilogy, Winn’s facing the challenge of one lifetime. If he doesn’t learn the truth about mythological creatures, his girlfriend Mac Thorne won’t either. That means, in six months, when she chooses her final form, she won’t know what to pick. Winn, though, has his own ideas about Mac’s final selection—plans she knows nothing of. He intends to have her pick human.
What do you think?
I think I’m angry,
Because I actually want to read this.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, Miss Too Tall and Exploding.
Let’s be real. Has your head actually ever exploded?
I thought Not.
Have you even ever tried to explode anything?
That sounds dangerous, I…
Have you ever tried to take over the world?
Did she just get bigger?
She’s getting mad!
Umm… ummmm… Yes! I have already taken over the world. Don’t you know that?
This is actually my interview and you’re just my pawn.
I’ll show you Miss Smarty Pants!
Wait a minute.
Is that a ray gun?
Get under the table!
Ha Ha! No more Too Tall Lady’s book!
[Dances away merrily]
She blew up my book!
Errr, yeah, that happens sometimes.
Did you remember to bring an extra?
I didn’t know I was supposed to bring an extra.
[Picks particles of half-disintegrated paper from her hair]
That stinks, because Day After sounds awesome.
I’d love to read it.
Shoot I wanted to give away a copy!

Emi, your book sounds great and you’re right, the guy on the front cover is hot. I’m going to mosey on over to your site and enter for a chance to win a free copy! 🙂
Thanks for having me and for … uh … attempting to save my book. 😉
Headless men! LOL!!! Best interview yet!
I L.O.V.E. your interviews. The little Blue Lady has such presence and personality.
As usual, great interview, Jennifer. Good luck with your book, Emi. Sorry this one got blown to smithereens. 🙂
Little Blue Lady, have you ever heard of Pinky? The two of you might want to join partners if you want to take over the world. Then maybe you won’t feel the need to blow up perfectly good books! 🙂
I loved this interview! LOL! Emi, so sorry about your book.
Is it an accident that the Little Blue Lady looks like Angela Merkel?
Ha! You are right! Hmmmm distant relative taking over the world via politics?
Never a dull moment with The Little Blue Lady!
Sorry about your book, Emi. I’d help you clean up the ashes if I was there…but I’m not. Great interview. You authors have to have spunk and fast reflexes to interview with the Little Blue Lady from Mars.
