Andela sits down to chat with Laurie

Laurie’s Thoughts and Reviews is running a giveaway for an e-copy of The Weeping Empress. She is also carrying an excerpt from the book and a character interview with Andela Masterdon. Andela  is tasked with recording the events surrounding Chiyo and has some interesting insights. It’s a great taster session.

Olwen from The Weeping Empress spends some time with Katelina from Shades of Gray

Katelina from Joleene Naylor’s Shades of Gray took the time out of her busy, vampire ridden life to ask Olwen, from The Weeping Empress, a few personal questions. 

The whole affair begins like this:

Hello! My name is Katelina, and welcome to Weekend Character Interviews. Using state of the art-mumbo-jumbo author magic, Jo has temporarily bent the laws of fictional space and time to allow various literary universes to converge long enough for me to ask different characters a few questions. Since I spend a lot of time in the Amaranthine series quizzing vampires on what they’re doing, where they’re going and why, Jo thought I would be the perfect interviewer.

Wonderful write up from Pocketful of Books

Anna, over at pocketful of Books read and reviewed The Weeping Empress. She gave it a 4 out of 5 stars and had some really positive comments, though she apparently would have like the Emperor to be more of a baddie – to each their own. I was really impressed with her post not only because of the warm fuzzes I got from knowing that someone read my book and is eagerly anticipating the sequel, but also because she obviously put a lot of thought into her it. When reviewing a book  she comments on the cover, the characters, the story, notes the first line and then lists what she liked most and least about the book – impressive.

She also carried a brief bio and an insightful insightful interview. (The questions were insightful, I can’t comment on my own answers.) Check it all out here:
