  1. I am mormally not a fan of interviews but this one was great short concise answers and some different questions. I read the whole thing and enjoyed it. Well done both of you! The book sounds good as well. I like books where there is an nderlined message and choose your own destiny.

  2. Short and sweet and to the point -- this interview was so much fun to read! :) I'm really intrigued about this "Snazzards chapter!" And YAY for Team Fey!! As much as I love vampires and werewolves, I think that faeries are more mystical and fascinating because their lore is different in every single book! ;)

    Awesome interview, you two! I love adventure books and this one sounds like a ton of fun! :)

  3. Great interview! Plus Ireland! Can't go wrong!


  4. Yay! Chocolate! Always <3 I think it's really cool when a book comes from a dream! :) Great interview!

  5. Hey! This is a new-to-me author and this series looks like right up my alley... thanks for the heads up! :)
