Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

2nd Ann. Halloween Extravaganza! Character Interview & Giveaway with Rhiannon from J.A Saare's novels!

Hi everyone!

I hope you enjoy this very neat interview. I won't say you'll be surprised, because if you read J.A Saare's novels, you know how Rhiannon is, but I will say this. She's kick ass. You won't want to miss this interview! 

Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between (Rhiannon's Law #1)

Natasha: Welcome Rhiannon! Thanks for stopping by!
Rhiannon: *Settles uncomfortably into the interview* Uh, thanks for having me?
Natasha: *smiles reassuringly* 
So, since it's close to Halloween. What are your thoughts on the big night?
Rhiannon: That's easy: Buy your own candy and stay the fuck home. 
Natasha: *Hesitates* Good advice. 

So, I hear you’re a bartender. Why did you choose that profession?

Rhiannon: *shrugs* Ironically enough, bartending chose me. I needed a job, and when I did the mandatory job search, I stumbled across a bar in the Bronx that needed a bartender. They were willing to train a newbie and I was willing to learn. How’s that for serendipity?

Natasha: Some things are just meant to be.

Rhiannon: You can say that again.

Natasha: At work, you act the normal part, but deep down your very different than the average bartender. Can you tell us a bit about being a Necromancer?

Rhiannon: It sucks. Seeing dead people is no fun. There is nothing worse than bumping into road kill first thing in the morning. Since I’ve started learning about what I can do, things have only gotten worse. I’m the fairy fucking godmother of the undead.

Natasha: Yeah, I can see how that would be hard on a person. 
Rhiannon: Not so much hard as it is disgusting, but yeah.

Natasha: *nods*

Natasha: How old were you the first time you seen a ghost?
Rhiannon: Six.

Natasha: That young? You must have been terrified. Did they talk to you? 

Rhiannon: It wasn't a they, it was a she. And no, she didn't talk to me. Mrs. Beaterman didn't like children when she was alive. Figures she would feel the same way after she died. 

Natasha:  I guess it's best she didn't say anything then.

Rhiannon: Probably.

Natasha: Can I ask you about Disco? I know it's personal, but, 
I'm going to anyway.  How would you describe Disco in three words?
Rhiannon: How about two? Off limits. Our private life is private. Next question.

Natasha: I understand. *bites lip out of nervous habit*
Time travel plays a role in your current life. Not many can say they did what you did. If you could choose a destination and year to visit, what would it be? 

Rhiannon: I wouldn’t. People don’t change. You can go forward or back but douchebaggery is like a cockroach—continuing to thrive even when the world goes to shit.

Natasha: So it's a been there, done that, won't do it again type of thing, huh? I understand your reasoning. 

Rhiannon: Smart woman.

Natasha: *laughs hesitantly*

Natasha: Do you have any advice for someone who wants to summon a Demon?

Rhiannon: Are you really going there? You are? Jesus. My advice is don’t. Leave them the fuck alone. If you want to get your dark on play with a Tarot deck or get yourself an Ouija board.

Natasha: *blushes* I wasn't asking because I was interested, or anything. Just wondering what your thoughts on demon summoning was. Sound advice though. *bites lip*

Rhiannon: It's not advice, it's goddamned gospel. I'm of the opinion that you don't fuck with things that can rip you a new asshole. Know what I'm saying?

Natasha: *nods several times in quick succession*  Yup. 
Natasha: I know my questions are making you a bit annoyed and I don't want that. So how I talk about something less serious?

Rhiannon: Sounds like a plan.
Natasha: Alright. When you have time to yourself, what do you do for fun?

Rhiannon: I hit the gym. It’s the only time I can let myself go a
nd just be.

Natasha: Do you read for pleasure? 

Rhiannon: I do, although it's mostly the same books, or book, should I say. Jane Eyre is the poison, if you're curious. When I find something I like, I stick with it. No need to explore new things when you find what works. 

Rhiannon: What's your favorite animal?

My favorite animal? *snickers* God, what a question. I could totally fuck with you right now, but I won't. Let's see... The honey badger. Definitely. The baddest motherfucker in the world.

Natasha: *laughs and shrugs* I thought it was better than asking your favorite color. Not much originality there. Anyway, I'm a cat person myself. Crazy cat lady here. *points to myself*  and proud of it.  *smirks* .. I have a feeling all respect you had for me went out the door when I announced that, am I right?

Rhiannon: Nah. It could be worse.

Staying true to Halloween, (which I know you have...negative thoughts on, but I can't help but ask since I love it) What is your favorite horror movie? And don't say your life. *says sarcastically, then thinks better of it* Ah, I mean, I'm not insinuating that your life is a horror film, just that I set up the question for you that way and I figured you'd go for it. Considering your personality. *widens eyes* NOT, that your personality isn't great. I didn't mean for that to sound rude. It's actually quite refreshing. *stops* I really put my foot in my mouth, didn't I? *laughs nervously and looks away*  Go ahead. Please.

Rhiannon: You could call my life horrific, couldn't you? Life's fucked up like that. *laughs* Don't worry, I don't take it personally. It is what it is. 
As for your question, it's not classified as horror but I'm partial to Ghostbusters. Come to think of it, Ghostbusters should be classified as horror. That movie hits so close to fucking home. The end of the world, bye-bye to existence as we know it? Who needs The Texas Chainsaw Massacre when you have shit like that to deal with? Bring on the dumb ass hick with a chainsaw. 

Natasha: *Smiles* I know you didn't want to do this to begin with, so thank you. And frankly you were my most interesting interview yet. I have to admit, you're kind of intimidating. At first, I wasn't sure how to respond. But after the initial shock, I was intrigued. You may have a mouth like a trucker, but I can honestly say, I like you.

Rhiannon: A mouth like a trucker? I haven't heard that one before. *shakes head, chuckles, and stands to leave* Take care of yourself and don't go summoning any demons. I'd hate to have to have to rescue your ass from the other side. Comprende? 

Natasha: I already told you I wasn't asking for myself! *says defensively*  *eyes narrowed* *smiles and laughs* I'll keep that in mind though. See yuh! 

Ahhh, this was so much fun! So we're passing the fun onto you.
