Interview with Erin McCarthy, our fourth author for LLC 2013!
Hi, we are Aurian from boeklogboek and Maia, and today we have best selling author Erin McCarthy visiting us here in
, Utrecht . Holland
Our guest is Erin McCarthy, author of many books in many genres, but all with a humorous undertone. And all sexy!
Aurian: Welcome to
, the Utrecht , Netherlands Erin.
Have some hot chocolate with whipped cream, and some Dutch cookies.
Maia: Can you tell our readers who might not yet know you or your
books, a littl about yourself? Something that is not in your official
bio (which is at the bottom of this post).
LL Convention questions
Aurian: Could you tell us why you are attending a convention in
Maia: The convention is in
, a beautiful city. Are you planning
to do some sightseeing? In Berlin
or even in the rest of Berlin Europe?
Aurian: There's a lovely group of authors coming this year. Do you personally know any of the other authors present?
Maia: The convention promo and books are in German. Will it be possible for you to bring some English swag?
Maia: The first time I’ve read some of your work was in the collections An enchanted season and A magical Christmas cat. I absolutely loved the stories of these three magical sisters. Is there a chance that the story about the third sister will be published in paper as well? I know you have self-published that one, but we both still prefer paper books over ebooks.
Erin: I have now self-published a YA, The Coming Dark, in print through Amazon’s Createspace, so now that I’ve cracked the code, so to speak, I will probably consider going back and doing Abby’s story in print, but I have hesitated because the price has to be so much higher than an ebook. But it’s on my radar and if there is enough reader interest I will consider it more seriously.
Aurian: I’ve recently dived into your Vegas Vampires series and really enjoyed them. How many times did you go to
for “research”? Do you think
vampires really could be living there? Las Vegas
Maia: I liked the idea of a vampire president election every forty years. What special perks does this office have for a vampire? How much power does he have over other vampires?
Aurian: I also read one of your Fast Track books so far (and will definitely read the rest!). Do you know some race car drivers in person and are they really that hot? ;-)
Maia: The Fast Track books are about race car drivers. Why did you choose those men? Do you like to drive fast yourself? Or are you a very careful driver who prefers to stay home with her family and cats?
Maia: We both have enormous TBR mountain ranges, how big is yours? And what do you plan on reading next?
Aurian: What would you be if you could not be an author?
Aurian: Who are some of your favourite authors? Do you still have the books you loved reading as a young girl?
And now for some fun quick questions:
Are you left-handed or right-handed?Right-handed. My father and my sister are lefties and I was so jealous as a kid. Not sure why, but I was. J
What is your favourite movie, and which is the last one you saw in the theater?I don’t think I have a favourite movie though I’m always drawn to period films. The last movie I saw in the theatre was Skyfall, the latest James Bond movie.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Night owl, no question about it. I can dance the night away at conferences.
What famous author, dead or alive, would you love to meet and why?Edgar Allan Poe because I want to see if he was really a drug addict as they claim, mentally ill, or just a word genius with a lousy life. I’m curious.
