#AADSAV Author Spotlight with Stacey Kennedy + Giveaway!

Sunday, March 31, 2013
If you are a follower of our blog then the next author needs no introduction. She is the most featured author on our blog and I am sooooo excited to meet her this year.
 Please Welcome 

Stacey Kennedy!

 





Please introduce yourself to our readers?
A little about me…well, I’m a wife and a mom of two little monsters. I have an addiction for Starbucks and television shows like Games of Thrones and Sons of Anarchy. Other than that, I love camping, and of course, I’m totally addicted to books! 


How well do you think Tess and the gang would hold up in a zombie apocalypse?
The gang will hold up well. Tess, she’d probably lock herself in a room and not come out!

Any teasers you can give us for Eternally Devoted?

Here’s an exclusive snippet from Eternally Devoted that is one of my favorite scenes.
His expression softened, sending heat to slide down my spine at the adoration in the depths of his eyes. But the concern resting heavy in his features stopped the heat from turning wicked hot. “You look so tired.” He feathered a finger under my eye. “You’ve been through a lot.” His eyebrows furrowed. “Too much.”
“For this…” I leaned into his hold, rested my head against his chest, and stated an undeniable truth. “It’s never too much.”
He held me a moment longer as the wind continued to flutter around us, and then he moved away and caressed his knuckles over my cheek. “Why do you love me like this? Go through all of this?”
Like with everything, when some things could be so complicated, some other things were completely straightforward. I stared into the handsome face that had snagged me at first look. I gazed into Kipp’s unique colored eyes, his kissable mouth, and even his scruffy hair that suited him. “Because I do love you.”
His mouth twitched. “That simple, huh?”
“Yes, Kipp, it’s that simple.” I lost myself in his twinkling eyes, noticing the warm hints of passion, but also saw something much stronger. When Kipp looked at me, he showed me in expression how much he loved me—each and every time. I stood on my tiptoes and cupped his face. “I love you for the same reasons you do me.”
He grinned. “Because it’s right.”
“Precisely.”

When you started this series did you have a feel for how it was going to go or how it would end?
It’s a yes and no answer. I knew what I wanted the outcome to be, for Kipp to live, of course. However, I wasn’t at all sure how I’d get there. Truth is, I had tried to plan out the series, but I always ended up going in a different direction, so I stopped planning. I mean, heck, I planned for three books and I ended up writing four for the Frostbite series. Yeah, so I gave up trying to figure things out for Tess and Kipp, and simply let them lead the way.

What has been the hardest book to write in the Frostbite series?

Book Two was the hardest, because it had the least amount of time with Kipp. It was also the most painful and difficult for Tess. I felt her strain through that entire book, but it was the book that kinda changed the game for her, too. When she finally realized “what” she was fighting for, so I sorta hated it and loved it, too.

Was there ever a scene you had to leave out but wish you hadn't?

I try not to regret the scenes that I cut out, because you just have to learn to let go. If not, I’d dwell and spend all my time arguing with my editors. Usually any scene I’ve cut is because it really does have to go, no matter how much I grumble about it.

Do you think if Tess and Kipp had met when he was still fully alive would they have gotten together?

Of course, I have to say YES. They are soul-mates, after all. 

What are you most excited about at AADSAV?

Meeting Amber, of course! J  AADSAV will be a total blast. I love this conference!!

(great answer. lol)

Do you know of any panels you will be doing?

None. I’d much rather sit around and just chat with everyone, and have a few drinks!

Since this is your 2nd year going any advice for newbies?

Make sure you have extra space in your suitcase. You’ll be bringing home lots of awesome swag and fantastic books!

Any sites you plan on seeing while in Savannah?

One thing I’m doing no matter what is going on a ghost tour. I’m such a chicken and will be so scared, but that is a must-do for sure! 
(what day are you doing that? I am such a baby but I will so go!)






 
Eternally Devoted
Frostbite Book Four
Urban Fantasy Romance
Length: Novel
Heat Level: Sensual
Release date: March 29, 2013


Tess Jennings, who has been gifted with the ability to see ghosts, struggles to help the Grand Master of the Animus, Alexander, cross over. She might even have discovered who murdered him, but she has no way to prove it.
Adding to her pile of failures, Tess must accept a harsh reality—she has officially run out of time. The closer she gets to an answer to save her ghost lover, Kipp McGowen, the more she’s realizing she’s been searching for an answer she didn’t want to find.
Tess will have to make difficult choices, and her decisions will lead to consequences she cannot predict. Will Kipp finally take a living breath again, or will Tess take her last and join him in the Netherworld forever?








BIO:
Stacey Kennedy’s novels are lighthearted fantasy with heart-squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. But within the stories you’ll also find fast-paced action, life-threatening moments, and a big bad villain who needs to be destroyed. She lives in Southwestern Ontario with her husband and two children. If she’s not plugging away at a new story—which is rare because her muse is annoying—you’ll find her camping, curling up with the latest flick, or obsessing over Sons of Anarchy, Games of Thrones, Supernatural and Dexter.
