Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: Hi Amanda! HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to drop by and celebrate the release of "Bound by Night" with us! We’re so happy to have you with us today!
Amanda: Thanks for asking me!
Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: We always like to start out by getting to know you a little bit better.
2) What are some other hobbies and interests you like to do when you're not writing?
Amanda: First and foremost, I love to read, always have. I love going to the movies. I just saw Cowboys and Aliens and thought it was really cool. I love spending time with my family. I love walking my dog in the morning.
6) Who are some of your favorite authors and series?
Amanda: I love Maggie Shayne’s Twilight series, Lori Handeland’s Nightcreatures series, and Patricia Briggs series – the name escapes me at the moment. I also love Jim Butcher’s Dresden books. Oh, and Charlaine Harris’ Sookie books..
8) If you could spend the day with any one of your characters, who would it be and what would you do?
Book Monster Reviews/LITERAL ADDICTION: Now we'd like to ask you some questions about the BOUND series.
12) How many books do you have planned for the series?
Amanda: At the moment, just two.
14) What's next for Amanda Ashley? What do you have planned in the upcoming months?
Amanda: My next book, His Dark Embrace, is scheduled for June of next year. I’m hoping to get my 5th Night book published next year. A lot of my readers have been asking for Mara’s story. I wrote it sometime back and thought it would be out long before now, but I ran into a snag and put it on hold for awhile. At the moment, I’m working on something new. My readers can get a sneak peek on my web page..
