Author Jamie Wyman Character Interview/Vlog and Contest LIVE Here!

Wild Card (Entangled Edge) by Jamie WymanHi there, everyone. I’m Jamie Wyman, author of the urban fantasy WILD CARD and its upcoming sequel UNVEILED. I thought we’d have some fun and talk to the lovely characters from these books. You have questions to ask Cat Sharp, Flynn and Marius, so I’ve strapped them to my couch with Easter grass and duct tape. (Except Marius who joins us live via satellite from an undisclosed location…covered in Easter grass and glitter. What the hell?) I think everyone is ready to take your questions, so let’s get started!

Author Iris Anthony Interview and Gift Card Contest

The Miracle Thief by Iris Anthony BBB: What is the strangest thing you ever did to research something for a story?

IA: For this story, since it’s about miracles, I needed to track down people who had experienced miraculous healing to ask them what it felt like and how they knew they’d been healed. It’s not strange in terms of being dangerous or bizarre, but that’s not one of my standard research questions!

Author Violet Patterson Interview and Amazon Gift Card Contest

The Storm Sullivan Saga: The Emerald Seer Series Box Set by Violet Patterson BBB: Tell us 3 things not in your bio we don’t know about you that might make us leery of befriending you. LOL

VP: Hm, let’s see. I am a HUGE football – NFL, not soccer – fan so during the fall things tend to get a bit crazy at my house. I primarily follow the Houston Texans for those who are curious.

Number two, hm, oh! I know! I tend to go a mile a minute as in I am always running until I sit down to write. With a few jobs and two kids I don’t know any other way to be so catching me for drinks or dinner or whatever is rather difficult.
