Happy Book Birthday Enshadowed! Giveaway!

On August 28th, fellow YA Fusion blogger, Kelly Creagh's, second book in the Nevermore series, Enshadowed, was released. I am a lucky girl because I've read it and I will tell you that it is an amazing, hooking, and creepy read. There is one scene that still gives me shivers.

In celebration of it's release, the beautiful Ms. Creagh has joined us for a chat.


 What are you the most excited about in returning to Varen and Isobel's world?

Sharing some of the back story to shed light on things from book one and also foreshadow things to come in book three. Also, in Enshadowed, we get some glimpses of Varen’s past (and Poe’s) that are important in regards to the things yet to come.    

What is your favorite quote from Enshadowed?

Hm. Gwen has a lot of great one-liners, but I think my favorite line of dialogue is spoken by Isobel’s little brother, Danny. Isobel tells her brother there’s something she’s “gotta go do.”
 His response is: “Like, Luke Skywalker leaves Dagobah to save Han and Leia gotta do, or Dick Grayson stops being Robin to go to Bludhaven and become Nightwing gotta do?”
  

 How did you come up with this awesome title?

My editor is the brains behind the title. My first few picks were complete duds. I’m not the best title person but having to do titles for every chapter has really improved my skill in this area. “Enshadowed” was a word I found in a re-telling of The Fall of The House of Usher. Poe never used the word himself but it still fits great with the overall story.

 What is your favorite scene?

I surprised myself with what I did in Chapter 31. I think that is my favorite scene in Enshadowed. I hadn’t planned for certain things in that scene but the events ended up dictating much of the book’s initial revision.

Fun question time!

Favorite Music? 

I’ve been listening to a lot of Radio Head lately. They’ve been on my iPod quite a bit for the writing of the final book in the trilogy. I’m also a huge fan of My Chemical Romance.

Pets?  

Yes. I officially have more dogs than I do sense. I have three dogs now, Annabel, Jack and Holly. They’re such great company while I’m writing and so wonderful. If I ever need to distress, I just go play with the pups!

Favorite Color? 

Purple has been a favored color while I’ve been writing the Nevermore trilogy. I suspect it might change with my next project. I’m a big fan of ocean blue/green also.

Hobbies? 

I’m a professional bellydance performer and instructor. I also dig paranormal reality TV shows. I’m so hooked on them!

To celebrate, we are giving away a signed copy of Enshadowed!

I totally approve of more of Poe's past!
Also, I'm totally down with having more dogs than sense! I keep compiling this list in my head of all the dog breeds I want. I can't have more than one in my current apartment, but If I could you can bet I'd have my pug/terrier (current dog), a black full pug, and a french bulldog by now :P
Purple is the awesomest color ever!

I loved her first book and love that I can support a KY author. Maybe one day I'll get the time to write my own book.

I thought Nevermore was great. Can't wait to read the sequel. If I had known Poe was so compelling, I wouldn't have rolled my eyes as a teen when my father gave me a big book of Poe's stories for Christmas. I never read the book, but my parents still have it.

I am so excited to read Enshadowed when nevermore was such an astounding book! I have loved Edgar Allan Poe since I was 7 years old and having these ideas incorporated in a novel with romance and mystery is soooo cool!!! Can't wait to read it!!
