Interview and Giveaway!!!!

My Good Friend Chloe Neill has a new book in my MOST FAVORITE series coming out!
I was Reading Pink is The New Blog one day ( which I LOVE!!! HI TRENT!!!!) and he was talking about a book called Some Girls Bite and it looked good, This was August 2009, so I went to my local Barnes& Nobel and picked it up. I read it in a FRENZY and it was LOVE at first Bite I'm sorry but I had to!

Quoted From Amazon.com
"Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.

Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude— and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood."

LET me tell you that as soon as I read this book I was HOOKED on Merit and Ethan and Catcher and Jeff! The characters had personality and they seemed like people that I would want to hand out with in person! People to throw back a beer with and have a good time!

I IMMEDIATELY Found Chloe's Blog and Twitter and Became a Follower and a Friend! I have loved all the rest of the books in the series and am SO EXCITED for Hard Bitten I cat even stand it!

If you haven't read this series do yourself a favor and DO IT!!! They are fun and they are a great read and they suck you in!!!!
I for one am a TOTAL #TeamEthan!!!!

I was LUCKY enough to be granted an interview with Chicago's Favorite Sentinel the other day! She is a Riot to talk to and I wanted to share my top 5 favorite questions with you all!

1. What is the one dream (like fall asleep dream) you miss having now that you sleep during the day?

Merit: I don't think my dreams have changed much since I became a vampire. It's pretty much the same dreams.
Thinking that I forgot to finish the 11th grade, rushing to finish an exam, that kind of thing. I was in grad school
when I was changed, after all.

2. What besides a Cubs Game in the day light do you miss the most?

Merit: Oooh, good question. I miss reading in the sun on the U of C campus. There's a big, grassy quad where we'd sit
outside if the weather was nice, maybe with some history or poetry. I miss that a lot. It was so *warm.*

3. If you could dress Ethan (although we all prefer him Undressed ;) ) for one day what would be his staple outfit?

Merit: Jeans, a T-shirt and flip-flops, just for the change of pace. But the T-shirt should be snug. Very snug. :)

4. Do you still miss teaching or do you think what you do now is just as rewarding?

I miss teaching. I miss hiding out in the library when Chicago is roasting in August. I miss the relief of turning in a
paper. What I do now is . . . different. It's a different kind of rewarding, where lives are at stake--literally. Important
stuff, even if it's not exactly what I thought I'd be doing.

5. Given the chance to stock the fridge at the main house for a month, what top 5 Human foods would you introduce
to your co workers?

Merit: Everything that falls into the pre-made, plastic-wrapped cake category. Twinkies. Little Debbie brownies.
Zingers. HoHos. Tastycakes. Entenmann's. And I'll give you one more hint--Mallocakes. But I've said too much! *Zips
up lips*

MALLOCAKES??? she is killing me with this teasing! That is a name that has me drooling!

Know what else has me drolling??
