Day 12 (14 days to Smugglivus and counting)
Who: Angie Fox, writer of Paranormal romance with a Demon Slayer as the heroine, surrounded by quirky characters such as a Griffin (who happens to be the hero) and a whole bunch of geriatric Biker Witches. You can check out our interview with Angie here.
Recent Work: Angie debuted this year with her first novel The Accidental Demon Slayer and hit the New York Times bestseller list. You can check our review here. Her second book in the series, The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers is out in April and her third…well, read the post and you will find out!
And Angie Fox is here today with a VERY special Smugglivus giveaway!
Okay, I have to tell you that when Ana and Thea first told me about Smugglivus, I laughed out loud. How fun. I love Festivus. I have a Festivus pole. I didn’t think there could be anything better – until Smugglivus added books. I mean, a month-long online book party? Nothing can top that.
And 2008 was quite a year. I managed to do book research with a bunch of Harley riders and their dogs – without falling off a bike once (at least not while the bikes were moving). Then I met a building inspector for the city of Henderson, Nevada, who took me down into the bowels of the Hoover Dam to research the second Accidental Demon Slayer book (The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers – out in April). And then, of course, The Accidental Demon Slayer hit the New York Times bestseller list, prompting me to utter the words “Get out!” over and over to my agent before making her email me to make sure I wasn’t phone hallucinating.
2009 should be just as much fun. Lizzie and the gang are going to Las Vegas to confront a she-demon who has her eye on world domination – and worse, Lizzie’s man. I’ve just signed on to be in the next Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance (which is going to force me to learn how to spell the word mammoth once and for all – I always want to add a “u.”) And then I’m working on the third book in the Accidental Demon Slayer series, tentatively titled A Tale of Two Demon Slayers, where Lizzie and the gang go to Greece and learn all kinds of things about Dimitri’s past. This one is going to be extra fun because I was actually in Greece a few years ago and there are so many amazing things about the ancient ruins there that I now get to include in a book. Yay!
If you’ve been wondering what the heck I’ve been talking about, you can check out an excerpt of The Accidental Demon Slayer.
