Welcome back Allison! Thanks for stopping by!
Thanks for having me! :D
Are you excited for Halloween? What's your plans?
I don't have any specific plans - most of Halloween these days centers around the kids (they're always excited, so it's nice to get caught up in their fun.
What's your most embarrassing or favorite costume you've worn on Halloween?
Oh goodness - high school - I was on some sort of float for a parade and I think I wore super-tight spandex pants...and about 500 rubber bands in my hair, which was really long. I basically made a pole of hair coming off the top of my head with a tuft at the end. (Very Dr. Seuss, I guess.) Think my face was completely painted blue too. Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking either... >_<
Natasha: I just LOL'd.
What's your favorite paranormal creature?
Unicorns, of course. ;-)
I love that you have a unicorn in your novels. You don't read about those everyday. Why a unicorn?
I was completely obsessed with them as a kid. When it came time to give Abby a sidekick, it just made perfect sense. (And the fact that he's small makes it practical.)
I love Abby's hair! Have you ever colored your hair similar to hers?
No...but I kind of want to. I could totally see cosplaying Abby at a con one of these days - I'd totally do it then...
If Abby was going to dress up in costume for Halloween, what do you think she's go as?
Hmm...well technically she dresses up as a pirate at the end of A Brush of Darkness, but I honestly think she'd go for something simple and easy to do. She's surrounded by so much magical stuff on a daily basis that she can't really compete with, so I don't think she'd try for anything to crazy.
I know A Sliver of Shadow isn' being released until March of 2012, but can you give us a little something to hold us over? Anything at all!
Well, a lot of people ask me if we're going to see Brystion again...and we are. Not as much as we do in BoD, but he does make his mark, particularly in the second half of the book. But no fear, fangirls - lots more Brystion to come in the third book!
Besides A Sliver of Shadow, are you working on anything else right now?
Actually SoS is pretty much done - so I'm working on the third book in the series (currently untitled), as well as a Melanie short story, and the beginnings of a steampunk fantasy thing that I'm really excited about.
Thanks for stopping by Allison! You rock!
