Giveaway/Q&A - Dragon Fall - Katie MacAlister


For Aoife Dakar, seeing is believing-and she's seen some extraordinary things. It's too bad no one else believes that she witnessed a supernatural murder at an outdoor fair. Returning to the scene for proof, Aoife encounters a wise-cracking demon dog-and a gloriously naked man who can shift into a dragon and kiss like a god. Now thrust into a fantastical world that's both exhilarating and terrifying, Aoife is about to learn just how hot a dragon's fire burns.

Kostya has no time for a human woman with endless questions, no matter how gorgeous or tempting she is. He must break the curse that has splintered the dragon clans before more of his kind die. But his powerful attraction to Aoife runs much deeper than the physical-and there may be more to her than even his sharp dragon eyes can see. To survive the coming battle for the fate of his race, he needs a mate of true heart and soul.


*********************Q & A***************************

1) If you had to live out the rest of your life as a character in one of your books which would it be and why?

Just one character? That's cruel and unusual punishment, since I have crushes on all my heroes, and would be happy to step in at any time to replace one of the heroines. You know, if they had to go somewhere. Or if someone (*cough*) sent them on a long trip on the other side of the world. Yeah. I'd totally sacrifice myself to keep aaaall those heroes happy. Especially Christian. And Baltic. And Nikola, and Iain, and Corbin, and Benedikt, and...whew. A little warm in here, isn't it?

With more than fifty books out, it's really impossible for me to pick just one book to step into. I can say that I'd probably lean toward one of the paranormals, simply because I love me some dragons and vampires. And Viking ghosts. And Celtic gods. And doppelgangers...great, now I'm off again. *sigh*

2) Would you consider yourself a "salty", "sweet", or "sultry" person and why?

Oh, I would love to be a sultry person. I want to be a sultry person. Sultry is sexy and mysterious and spicy and all sorts of enticing. But alas, I'm a salty person. I'm not overly sweet, but I do try to provide something that people need in their lives (like salt): humor. The world would be a plain, tasteless place without humor! Viva la salty people!

3) What is one food you literally could not live without?

Chocolate. Oh, pizza and taco salads run a close second, but chocolate is an absolute must have (in moderation, alas).

4) Other than writing what are some other jobs you have had in your life?

I've been a check sorter at a bank, a cashier at a college bookstore, a customer service peon for an art museum, a bird skeleton cleaner for a natural history museum, a Fortran coder, and a physics peer instructor at a university.

5) When you're feeling blue or down what are some things that help make you feel better?

Oddly enough, submerging myself can be helpful for blue days. I recently lost my old boy dog, and during his last couple of days (when I knew I was going to have to let him go) and shortly thereafter, I wrote like a demon. It was a way to avoid looking at his empty dog bed, although I did give myself a day to do nothing but cry. For non-tragedic blue days, I generally baby my muse with video games, black and white mystery movies, and reading.
