Author Interview & Giveaway!

Author: Rose Pressey
Books: How to Date a Wereworlf (Rylie Cruz Series #1), How to Date a Vampire (Rylie Cruz Series #2), Me and My Ghoulfriends (Larue Donavan Series #1), Rock and Roll is UndeadNo Shoes, No Shirt, No Spells (Mystic Cafe series #1)

All of the characters in your book No Shoes, No Shirt, No Spells are very unique-- especially Elly's. Where did you get inspiration for her personality?
It’s hard to say where Elly’s personality came from. She popped into my head one day and she was like a real person to me. Her wants, desires, fears, and quirks. I put myself in her shoes when I write and ask myself what would I do if in her situation.
There are TONS of different potions and spells in the secret book in the cafe. If you could cast a spell on someone close to you, who would it be, what spell, and why?
The Mystic Magic book is full of spells. If I could pick one, I’d want one for good health for my family. Whether it’s little aches and pains or something much worse.
Summer is almost over, but what is in your summer reading pile?

My reading pile is huge. I doubt I’ll ever catch up. I’ve read all of HP Mallory’s books and I’m looking forward to her new one.  I bought The Sixes by Kate White and I can’t wait to read it.

If you could describe No Shoes, No Shirt, No Spells in just five words, what would they be?
When good spells go bad.
No Shoes, No Shirt, No Spells is the first book in the Mystic Cafe series. Can you give us a preview of what is to come?
Mystic Café is the setting again of course. Most of the same characters return with a couple of new ones. Elly will learn more about the magic and The National Organization of Magic.
