Because Danielles book is made of awesomeness I decided to have another contest real soon. SO CHECK BACK OFTEN. In the mean time, go and check out Danielle’s contest on her blog!

I promised contests during September but I was so swamped with work and simply had no time. 😦 But don’t worry, I’m giving away DARKLIGHT by Lesley Livingston!

Lesley Livingston is the author of Wondrous Strange and Darklight.

Synopsis of Wondrous Strange:

17 year-old Kelly Winslow doesn’t believe in Faeries. Not unless they’re the kind that you find in a theatre, spouting Shakespeareβ€”the kind that Kelley so desperately wishes she could be: onstage, under lights, with a pair of sparkly wings strapped to her shoulders. But as the understudy in a two-bit, hopelessly off-off-Broadway production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, wishing is probably the closest she’s going to get to becoming a Faerie Queen. At least, that’s what shethinks… In this fun, urban fantasy, Kelly’s off-stage life suddenly becomes as complicated as one of Shakespeare’s plot twists when a nighttime trip to Central Park holds more than meets the mortal eye.

How did you come up with the names for Kelley and Sonny?
Kelley started off as a minor character in a short story I wrote. As with most of my characters, her name just came already attached! Weird, I know, but that’s how it usually happens. Sonny also came with his name already attached – although I will admit that I may have been partially infulenced by a Robbie Robertson song that’s been a favorite of mine for years called “Sonny Got Caught in the Moonlight”!

If Wondrous Strange was made into a movie, who would you pick to play as Kelley and Sonny?
Hmm… I think I’d like a couple of fantastic, talented unknowns! Mostly because I honeslty can’t think of any actors who fit right now (although, if the model that my designer used on the cover of WS can act… well… she is certainly the perfect image of Kelley, in my mind!)

I heard there are two more books coming up for the Wondrous Strange trilogy! Can you tell us what to expect? πŸ˜›
I can’t really say a whole lot about them, but I can tell you that both books are the direct continuation of Sonny and Kelley’s story. And that pretty much all of the regulars from book one are back, plus a few new faces… and readers might just get an extended glimpse into the Otherworld!

What do you do when you’re not writing?
Well, I’m an actress so some of the time I’m rehearsing or performing. I also read a lot. In the summer I attempt to garden with varying degrees of success.

What’s the last book you bought?
It’s a nonfiction text called Lords of Battle: The World of the Celtic Warrior by Stephen Allen – I’m an ancient history buff!

Which do you prefer:

1. Meeting a faerie in real life or meeting a leprechaun in real life
Oh dear… much like Bob the Boucca in WONDROUS STRANGE, I think I’d really prefer to avoid crossing paths with leprechauns… On the other hand, there are more than a few types of Faerie that I’d rather not meet in dark alleys or on moonlit open moors… and I’d suggest being extremely polite if such a thing ever happens to you!

2. Hardcover or paperback
Both. In abundance!

3. Sunrise or sunset
Sunset, definitely. NOT a morning person.

4. Twilight or Harry Potter
But… but… they’re both books! I have to choose??

6. Sushi or Pizza
Pizza. Glorious pizza.

7. 30 days without chocolate or 30 days without music

I can live without chocolate. Music – not so much. In fact, I get twitchy when the battery runs down on my ipod.

8. A trip to Asia or a trip to Hawaii
I’ve been to Hawaii (awesome) so I’m going to say Asia.

9. Cats or dogs
I’ve kept company with both throughout my life. Right now it’s 3 cats (although one might be a dog disguised in a cat suit – it’s hard to tell…)

10. Being a understudy or working backstage
Sometimes it’s the same thing! I’ve done both and found merit in either role. Really… so long as you’re actively involved in a production, it’s always magic!

And thank you!! This was fun!

I am really sorry if some of the questions were lame. I did this interview a LONG time ago, when I first started blogging. xD Well, Lesley has agreed to give away a ARC for Darklight! Oh and I strongly advise readers to read Wondrous Strange first! I read it last year — loved it!

    It’s me again. Tring to spam only once a day.

    I’d just like to add that Wondrous Strange was the first book I read completely about fairies. I had never been that interested in the past, but the cover, plus the summary made me pick it up. I’m very glad I did.

    Now i’m trying to patiently wait with everyone else for the next one. (If only the months would fly by)

  48. Ooooh, I want one! I loved the first book ❀
    Pick me, me, me!!!!!
    -I'm sorry if that was a tad bit obnoxious ; )

  49. I am hoping that persistance pays off

  50. By the way, for a quick review, Wondrous Stange is a wonderful urban fantasy. It sets up a world so unbelievable, and yet places it in our world in such a believable way. That might be a bad explaination, but I’ll stick by it. The Shakespearean elements really fill it out, as well, and, though anyone would love it, I think actresses will take a special shine to Kelley.
    The characters are the absolute heart and soul of the story, as it should be, and earn it a very solid rating on my part. Kelley is very believable, and Sonny is just unbelievable enough, to make their romance sparkle. I absolutely suggest it to anyone searching for a good fantasy read.

    And I really hope I win the sequel…subtle hint πŸ˜€

  51. Stopping by again!
    Nice Review Liz!

  52. I am home from school I have so much work to do !!!!!!

  89. wow Emliee and casey you girls are on fire!

  90. There is only 95 comments, that’s a ways away from 380.

  91. More people should participate.

  92. I like how the name Sonney came to here.

  93. There isn’t anyway I could live without music either

  94. Personally, I like the model on this cover better than the one on Wondrous Strange

  95. The cover is clearer. WS’s cover seemed blured to me.

  96. Those were some very random comments πŸ™‚ oh well

  97. I know the feeling Casey

  98. Makes me feel ridiculous lol

  99. Whoops! Replied to a comment instead of the post…sorry! πŸ™‚ I can be a dork sometimes!

  103. I wonder if there ARE still morning persons out there! I’m not one either!

  104. Great Interview!

  105. I already read Darklight and loved it! You will be dying for the next one!!!

  106. The girl in the cover looks like Scarlett Johanson with red hair, so probably she would be good for the part. Kelley has green eyes though, and probably looks a lot younger than Scarlett!

  107. Isn’t it the same girl in both cover???

  108. I hope I win This!!

  109. Ok, so I’m wondering if I can hit 380 all by myself! LOL!

  110. Casey is certainly helping!

  111. Will the same winner win both books if you throw in another one?

    Kate’s reply:

    There’ll be two winners if I throw in another book. But we’ll see how it goes. πŸ™‚

  112. I think I will do my next contest like this!

  113. I think I commented more than 10 times already!

  114. Even though I read it I don’t own it!

  115. I have nothing left to say!

  116. Yes, Darklight cover is way prettier than WS!

  117. How are you going to count the extra entries too?

  118. I’ve been coming back and no one else has commented so I think it’s right to say that I won! LOL!

  119. This is maybe the best faery book I’ve read.

  120. Yes, Sab H. I was wondering the same thing. If I could get to 380 because it looked like no one else was helping.

  121. But maybe I don’t have to by myself

  122. These contests are okay, but I definitely run out of things to say.

  123. I’m hungry…again. Think I’m going to go raid the fridge πŸ™‚

  124. Holy cow!! And I was worried about entering too much. I guess I’m in the clear to keep going.


  126. and I really hope I win. What does one say to fill up space on these things. Does it have to be book related, or could it be about anything. Sushi? Travel? Shakespeare. Are there perameters, or has some new world opened up where I can just say as much random stuff as I want? Oh, the options are endless!!!

    Kate’s reply:

    You can talk about anything, sushi, what you bought today, how much you like a book, fave characters etc etc.

  127. Back home from work, Finished reading candor!

  128. Hey I’m following you, and Lesley. I also re-tweeted about this contest.

  146. Haha, Im kind of in the mood for pizza and sushi right now…

  147. Wow, 380? I have a lot of catching up to do!

  148. Yep, sunfets are definitely better. I have to admit I’ve seen plenty of them, while the number of sunrises ive seen are limited.

  149. Haha, I meant sunsets, not sunfets. πŸ˜€

  150. Wow, I was just noticing how persistant some of you are! I’m trying my best here….

  151. The model for the book covers is absolutely fantastic! They did a really good job on both of the covers!

  152. think you posted enough comments, Maura?

  153. Haha, I also get twitchy when my ipod battery runs down. I can hardly stand 30 minutes without music, none the less 30 days!

  154. I have a really bad headache. Must be this harsh lighting….

  155. I was thinking about how much it would suck if someone won but they had accidentily typed in their email wrong…

  156. I posted the link on my facebook. ;D

  157. I don’t have a twitter account, but I guess I can just keep commenting.

  158. That’d be amazing if Lesley could be on Free Book Friday too!

  159. I love all the caharacters in WS! Especially Bob, Tyff, Sonny, Kelly, okay…. like I said, I love all the characters!

  160. This reminds me of this book I was reading where if these kids talked about Coke enough, they would get a free suply for a year! Well, after they talked about coke for awhile, they suddenly had a craving for it and went and bought some. Now I really want to read WS again. Too bad my friend has my copy…

  161. Most people do the one word per comment thing which is smart, but I kinda prefer just rambling all on one comment.

  162. I still have history homework to do…. I should probably do it…

  163. I’m currently reading this book called THe Christopher Killer…. I always watch forensic shows but I never read the books until this one, and I love it !I totally recomend it!

  164. I had just finished reading THe Faerie Path, and I need to get the next books in the series. They’re pretty good but kind of predictable. ;D

  165. I’m really in the mood for asian food right now… anything, even just rice would be fine!

  166. Please enter me! I’m very excited!

  167. Its been such a crazy weekend that i havent had time to comment :O tomorrow I will be here all day I promise !!!!

  170. I’m Back!!!

  171. One word thing is allowed because all it states is a comment, it doesn’t say how many words in a comment!!!

    Kate’s reply:

    Haha yes but it’s still better to comment in sentences. πŸ˜›

  172. Right now I’m writing a descriptive paragraph on setting of the Vampire Diaries series. It’s for English Class.

  173. I’m almost done typing it up.

  174. Done now it’s printing. I think I did a very good job of it. BTW does anyone watch Vampire Diaries? What do you think of it?

  175. Personally I like it, even if it’s very different from the books.

  176. I was going to comment on something else but I don’t remember what,lol!!!

  177. This will bug me now that I can’t remember.

  178. I’m on youtube!! Yay

  179. hmmmm it’s midnight here!!!

  180. Looking at books by Aprilynne Pike and Lesley Livingston. So excited for Darklight.

  181. Watching book trailers now, they’re so cool

  182. should sleep soon.

  183. 100 comments here!! Yay, bedtime now. See yah tomorrow XD

  184. I should be doing my french assignments right now. But I keep getting distracted.

  185. There’s a pink scrunchie around my wrist. I have no idea where it came from or how it got around my wrist. I haven’t owned a scrunchie since third grade.

  186. I have a headache. So I made coffee.

  187. It’s Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. I made it super strong. 2 cups of water and 5 tablespoons of coffee.

  188. There’s a grocery store war going on in Houston. Kroger vs. HEB
    I like shopping at HEB

  189. My dog’s name is Harley. He’s named after a motorcycle cause when he sleeps that’s what he sounds like.

  190. I’m watching Criminal Minds and the serial killer is in Houston. That scares me. I don’t think I’ll be going into the city anytime soon.

  191. I have the urge to light a candle but I can’t find any matches.

  192. I had an english muffin for breakfast, with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Smuckers’ Strawberry Preserves.

  193. I also had a packet of instant oatmeal with one tablespoon of brown sugar and 17 blueberries.

  194. I’m trying to decide what to eat for lunch. It’s between a black bean and tomato microwave burrito or half of a feta and spinach pan pizza.

  195. Well, I had a burrito yesterday. Maybe I should have the pizza today.

  196. Yeah, I’ll have the pizza today. That way I can half for lunch and half for dinner.

  197. My parents are having steak tonight, and since I’m a vegetarian cooking this pizza now kills two birds with one stone.

  198. I have to preheat the oven to 450. It’s going to take 18 minutes to get up to temperature. That sucks, I’m hungry now.

  199. I need to fold all these towels while I wait for the oven to preheat but my headache won’t let me move.

  200. Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory are both new tonight. So is CSI: Miami. I like pointless television.

  201. I’m going to Massachusetts in December to go through my Grandma’s library for her. She said I can ship anything I want back home.

  202. My personal library will grow exponentially, I don’t think all of the books will fit in my apartment.

  203. Everything’s going blurry. My headache won’t go away. I should probably stop staring at the computer screen.

  204. Haha– Emilee, I used to have a dog named Harley. My dad wanted a Harley, but instead of a motorcycle, we got him a dog named Harley. Harley was a mix between a blue heeler and a beagle. Cute little thing.

  205. I just finished The Christopher Killer and need to get the second book, Angel of Death. I really enjoyed it. πŸ˜€

  206. I’m also still working on several other books.

  207. Feed by MT Anderson…

  208. The Once and Future King by TH White…

  209. In Exchange by Melissa Marr…

  210. Haha, I meant Ink. πŸ˜€

  211. I’m also reading To Kill A Mockingbird and Siddartha for school.

  212. I’m sooo tired, but I gotta lot of homework and stuff to do…. GRRRR!

  213. I’m listening to A Shot in the dark by ADTR. XD

  214. I’m kinda in the mood to watch Kung Fu Panda. πŸ˜€

  215. “The past is history, the future is a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.” Haha, that is one of my fave qotes from the movie. πŸ˜€

  216. I meant quotes! Yeesh, I cannot type today!!!!

  217. This whole leaving a bunch of random comments thing is kinda fun! Haha…

  218. The best version of Since You’ve been gone is definitely the one by A Day to Remember. Jus tthought I’d say that…

  219. I also really like the song Crippling Machine by A Rotterdam November. Just thought I would say that too…. haha. πŸ˜€

  220. it hurts everytime I swallow and I think my tounsils are swollen…. ugh. 😦

  221. I keep on almost falling asleep. Haha, my english essay has a bunch of random letters from when my forehead hit the keyboard. πŸ˜€

  223. This will be comment number 326…. almost to 380… wait, why do we want to get to 380? I’m confused…

  224. 327. But then again… I’m easily confused…

  225. I just finished my Geometry homework and I’ve moved onto spanish… ?Quinenes hablan? ?Como esta Paco? ?Y Claudia? ?Cuantos cursos toma CLaudia? etc. etc. etc.
