A Cursed Embrace Interview

A CURSED EMBRACE BLOG TOUR:
INTERVIEW WITH (adult) URBAN FANTASY 
AUTHOR CECY ROBSON
+
GIVEAWAY!


In celebration of the soon-to-be-released 
A CURSED EMBRACE, 
the second full length novel in THE WEIRD GIRLS Series, 
I'm interviewing the uber-talented author 
(and my agency-mate) Cecy Robson! 

*Giveaway info at bottom of post*


1.    What is the title of your novel, who is the publisher, and when is the set release date? Can you give us a short blurb?

My Weird Girls urban fantasy romance novels and novellas are published with Penguin’s Signet Eclipse.  My second novel in the series, A CURSED EMBRACE, releases July 2, 2013. The blurb is below:

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twentysomething girls—with one tiny exception: They are the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that made them, well, a little weird.…

After Celia Wird and her sisters help master vampire Misha save his family, their powers are exposed to the supernatural community of the Lake Tahoe region. But fame comes at a price, and being “weird” isn’t always welcome.

To make matters worse, Celia desires the love of Alpha werewolf Aric, but his pack is bent on destroying their relationship to preserve his pureblood status. And once weres start turning up dead—with evidence pointing to the vampires—she must face the prospect of losing Aric forever. But the chaos only masks a new threat. An evil known as the Tribe has risen—and their sights are set on Celia and her sisters.


2.     Do you have other novels out or is this your first?

The prequel novella, THE WEIRD GIRLS, and my first novel, SEALED WITH A CURSE, are currently available. I also have my novella, A CURSED MOON, releasing in December. This novella is told through Bren’s (my blue-collar werewolf) perspective. Do you have other novels under contract after this one? CURSED BY DESTINY is the third novel I have contracted with Penguin and it releases January 2014. And while this novel fulfills my current contract, I suspect there are more Weird Girls novels to come. ;D Do you write in other genres or categories?  My OLD ERTH series (a high fantasy romance) is currently out on submission.  I’m also starting another high fantasy epic series. Lately, I’ve also toyed with writing a chick lit, loosely base on my Latin upbringing.

3.     If you had to cast your main characters to star in the movie adaptation of your novel, who would you choose?

I’d love to have Emmy Rossum play Celia, Emmanuelle Chriqui for Taran, Lily Collins as Shayna, and Dianna Agron would make a great Emme.  I’d also love to see Alex Pettyfer portray Aric, and Taylor Kitsch would make a fantastic Misha.

4.     Do you have a favorite character from your novel(s), who, why? What traits of your own do you see in your characters?

I have a soft spot for all my characters―even the “bad” guys.  I’ll have to say, though, Celia is likely my favorite . . . probably because I’ve tortured her the most.  As far as traits?  I think my main characters carry portions―if not extreme qualities―of my quirky, upbeat, nerdish, and obnoxious personality.

5.     Can you give us your favorite thing about writing?

What I love most about writing is sharing my stories and having readers embrace and respond so well to my work. How about your least favorite? Sometimes there aren’t enough hours in the day to wrangle in my over-active imagination and write everything I’d like to.

6.     When you’re reading for fun, what do you read? 

I mostly read books within my genre―anything dealing with magic and the possibility of it existing in our reality. I also enjoy books with humor. There’s not enough laughter in the world.

How about a game of word association?
I’d love to. Bring it!

I say SUPER NATURAL, you say… Yes, please!
I say MAGIC, you say… Believe.
I say WEREWOLF, you say…hot!
I say HOTTIE, you say… Werewolf.
I say ROMANCE, you say…only with a touch magic, and lots of action.
I say KICK-ASS, you say…heroines!
           
Thank you so much!
            
Thank YOU, Tonya!

If you like non-stop action, kick-ass chicks, or hot guys...this series is FOR YOU!
If you haven't read the novella, THE WEIRD GIRLS, 
or the the first full-length novel, SEALED WITH A CURSE, in THE WEIRD GIRL SERIES,
 read on to learn more about these un-put-downable books! 

THE WEIRD GIRLS 




Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird… 
The Wird sisters are different from every race on earth—human and supernatural. When human society is no longer an option for them, they move in among the resident vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region. Could this be the true home they’ve longed for? Um, not quite. After the sisters accidentally strip a witch of her powers in a bar brawl, they soon realize the mistake will cost them. Because to take on a witch means to take on her coven. And losing the battle isn’t an option.

Includes a preview of the first full-length novel in the Weird Girls series, Sealed with a Curse—as well as introductions to the Weird World, and a letter from the author.



SEALED WITH A CURSE



Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense. Everyone knows vampires aren't aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust-fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders: are the vampires of Tahoe cursed with a plague?

Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha's family to keep the region safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and oh yeah, not lose her heart to the wrong guy—or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, it’s coming for her and her sisters. This Wird girl has never had it so tough.
