A lot of Winners! - April 10, 2012

Question:  If you could time travel, which historical event or events would you like to witness? OR Write a limerick about a book you've read.

Anne who said...

Boy, it's hard to pick just one big event. It would have to be an event where I'd be safe, so no Salem witch trials or crusades. I was actually up for the first moon walk, but so young it didn't really mean anything to me. Maybe the first actual flight.

A lot of Winners! - April 10, 2012

Question: What do you expect to see over the course of a series, what pulls you in more, and even those things that make you end up bored and stop reading a series?

BookAttict who says...

I can't believe this series hasn't appeared on my radar until now.. Deadworld sounds like a fantastic series that I'd love to read!

I read. A lot. What do I look for in a series that keeps me reading? I absolutely LOVE UF and Fantasy, so it's the details and world-building that pull me in, as well as well-drawn characters (main AND secondary) that I want to know more about.

While I realize nobody's perfect (even authors) -- and not every book is going to be a perfect read for me -- what really will turn me off a series is lack of development in the characters. I've noticed this seems to happen quite a bit in well-established series (14-15) books in. The author finds a formula that works and the characters stay in this time-warp and never change, just regurgitate the same jokes, situations, etc. -- Time moves forward-- people change. This should be true of characters in a series as well.

The other thing will put me off a series is a forced story arc -- like the author forced the characters to go in a direction that, well, seems manufactured and awkward, to get them from where they are to where the author "needs" them to be (if that makes any sense...)

Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

Denise Z who said...

Thank you for sharing with us today, I really enjoyed the spotlight. I love the Black Dust Mambo and Black Heart Loa series and would love to dive into the others as well. As a teen I pretty much had a pleasure reading hiatus due to the amount of mandatory reading in my studies, but in my elementary years I was a reading loving the Boxcar Kids and then as an adult started up again with Johanna Lindsay and historical genre. Now I am a pretty eclectic reader with a primary interest in the urban fantasy series! My fingers are crossed here and I thank you for the awesome giveaway opportunity. I absolutely love Adrian Phoenix's writing style!


and

amanda who said...

Thanks for taking the time to do this. It is fun to read about the book series and hear about what books got people hooked on reading!! As a teen I only read what I had to. I did enjoy Great Expectations, so I suppose that was the 1st book that didn't cause me physical pain to finish. Ha ha!! I didn't actually fall head over heels for books until my 30's. Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse books were the ones that won me over to hot and hilarious paranormal books. I've lived happily ever after... ;)

My favorite genre is paranormal romance. I'm also a fan of urban fantasy and historical romance. Recently I've discovered steampunk and found that I enjoy that as well. I enjoy sticking with favorite genres and branching out and reading new things as well.

Winners x 9 - March 3, 2012

Question:  What is you favorite fantasy movie?

Tim who said...

I love this story, especially the after note about walking into a room and Labyrinth is playing on the TV.

The question is an easy one for me to answer, except it's not a single movie. The Lord of the Rings trilogy are my favorite fantasy movies. Peter Jackson brought these amazing books to life without making too many drastic changes and the result is magic.

Winners x 9 - March 3, 2012
ARC Cover is slightly different!

Question: What is/are your favorite apocalyptic movie(s), comics or novel(s)?

1. erin who said...

OMG... this book sounds awesome!!! Immediately added to my new release wishlist! But I like the UK cover much, much better. The US version is very misleading...

I love post-apocalyptic books and movies. And if they have zombies and mutants etc. so much the better! My fav so far as been: movies - any Resident Evil and Book of Eli, TV - Walking Dead, and books - The Newsflesh Trilogy by Mira Grant and The Passage by Justin Cronin.

Thanks for the great post and giveaway!


2. Vivien who said...

I absolutely LOVE Mira Grant. Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer is a great one.


3. Spaz who said...

Great post and I love the book summary. This is going on my wishlist whether or not I win the giveaway.

Favorite post-apocalyptic stuff... lately I really liked the setting of The Passage by Justin Cronin though I felt the book dragged quite a bit. I look forward to The Twelve.

But all-time? It's Stephen King, but no, it's not The Stand. It's the Dark Tower books. While the Dark Tower didn't have some singular causal event, the world (multiverse) is clearly falling to pieces.


Winners x 9 - March 3, 2012

Winners x 5 - February 19, 2012

Question: Tell me how important covers are in your decision to read a book and/orif you have a favorite part of this cover?

Because the original winner (Sophia Rose) has already received a copy of 
In the Service of the King 
(and kindly let me know), a new winner has been randomly chosen:

Rebe who said:

Yes, the cover is very important, especially if I'm browsing for books online or in a store! I tend to pass over books with unprofessional looking covers, because I wonder if the rest of the book will be equally as bad (perhaps unfair of me).

I love the photo of the castle at the bottom of this cover - I think it makes it stand out among the HQN Nocturne covers I've seen, since usually they just have a photo of the couple on the front, nothing else.


Winners x 5 - February 19, 2012


Shadow Highlander (Dark Sword 5) by Donna Grant - Ended February 16, 2012 - Read the Guest Blog here.

Winners x 5 - February 19, 2012

Question:  Why do you love historical romance, and who are some of your favorite authors?

Leah Weller who said

I am so glad that I subscribed to The Quillery! I am finding so many new to me authors that I'm almost squeeling about it :)
When I opened my email and saw you were here and started reading about you and your books I felt like you were speaking from my heart. I have such a love for anything medieval. My wordpress name is leahluvsmedieval, lol! I've used that name for years with other things too. My love for historical romance came from the first romance book I read. Kathleen Woodiwiss The Wolf and the Dove. That one book changed my life. It started me down a road of wanting to learn all I could about the medieval period. I feel like I cannot soak enough in. I have such an inner pull for England, Wales,and Scotland that I can't even begin to put it into words. I think the only ones who understand it, are the ones who have that inner pull themselves. It's deeper than words. I have often thought that I was born in the wrong century. One day, my soul will find it's way back home. I love historical romances because for a short time, I can escape back and enjoy the ride that the author takes me on, with their characters. As for favorite authors, Sue-Ellen Welfonder/Allie MacKay, Karen Ranney, Diana Gabaldon, Sandra Hill, Alison Weir, Heather Graham/Shannon Drake to name a few. I could sit here and go on and on. From the sounds of your books, it seems you may soon be on that list too :) I am suprised at how many good authors/books there are out there that I had no clue about. Donna, thank you for this interview and giveaway and I have added your books on my wishlist. Beautiful covers, btw. The cover Gods have been sprinkling happy dust your way.


Winners x 5 - February 19, 2012

Question:  Who is/are some of your favorite strong heroine(s)? (books/comics/TV/movies)

Question:  If you worked for a secret governmental agency dealing with the supernatural, what would your job be?

rissatoo who said:

Fab interview! (And great review, too!) I really can hardly wait to read The Rook.

Now, as far as the question, my first inclination is to say something wild, like I'd be a handler - someone who interacts and directs with the 'agents'.. But if I'm honest, I'd probably be in some very mundane section, like accounting - and very likely a very small cog in the machine. :p

The Thorn and the Blossom by Theodora Goss - Ended January 31, 2012 - Read the interview here. US/Canada ONLY

Winners x 14 - February 5, 2012

Question:   Which unresolved love story or stories would you like to see have a happy ending(s)?

Linda McDonald who said:

I would say Salander and Blomquist in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series. At the end of the series you really don't know where they stand...it seems to me like they are just friends, but I'd like to think that maybe they have a happier romantic ending. The books are not romances, but I am curious as to what the author (who sadly is deceased) felt about the ending to their story and if he thinks they were together or not.

Winners x 14 - February 5, 2012

Question:  Which historical person(s) would you like to have dinner with?

Leah Weller who said:

Claire, the book sounds right up my alley! History is a passion of mine also. I added this to the list of books to look for that seems to be rapidly growing, but I added a check beside it being as I felt drawn to it. I love finding new to me authors :)

If I could have dinner with someone from the past, who would it be? That's a hard question for me and I couldn't narrow it down to just one so I'm adding two. William the Conqueror and King Henry the ll. Gotta love those Plantagenents! I would have many questions for both but the most important one would be to ask what was the one thing that happened in their life that was THE defining moment that made them who they were.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I have been asked the question before and what I usually answer is teleportation for the simple reason that I love travelling to different places around the world but that is quite an expensive thing to do.

If I could teleport myself and partner with our luggage straight to a hotel at my destination. how great would that be!

Winners x 8! - December 24, 2011

Question: Which royal family or royal individual might be fun to fictionalize in a fantasy novel?

loves to dive who said...

Wow, that's a hard question since most of the well known ones have already been done. I'm a big fan of all things middle eastern and love the history that surrounds the area so maybe one of the lesser royal families there.

Just as an aside, I too am fascinated with the story of the Russian royal family. I visited an exibit of their jewels in Memphis once and stood there in the middle of the museum bawling like a baby.
