And we have a winner!

Sirena, you got it, girl.
Please drop me a note with your address:
and I'll send the book off to you!

Thanks, everyone for playing. Don't forget to check back tomorrow for one more chance to win a book this week.

A Killer Giveaway!

Welcome to the Friday edition of Inside the Character's Studio.
Today's lucky winner will receive an ADVANCED READER'S COPY of my upcoming YA mystery,

Leave me a comment for your chance to win. It's that easy!

Today we'll hear from Seth Mulo, who in my mind looks an awful lot like Rafael Nadal, except with blue eyes and maybe shorter hair. Plus Seth was a football captain and Rafael plays tennis, but still...

  1. What is your favorite word? Yes
  2. What is your least favorite word? Hide
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Freedom
  4. What turns you off? Deception.
  5. What is your favorite curse word? From my dad's country - iqvac. It just means bonehead, but it sounds a lot more intense than that if you say it right.
  6. What sound or noise do you love? The ocean.
  7. What sound or noise do you hate? A sigh of resignation.
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? (laughs) Yeah. When I have a profession, I'll let you know.
  9. What profession would you not like to do? Work for the government.
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates ? Did you have fun down there? Yeah? Then you can go back.
