WIN Signed Galley Pages And More with Angie Fox!

*Click here for Novel Reads on Word Press, as with yesterday,double entries when comments are left over there.

As you know, my guest this week is the uber talented Angie Fox, author of The Accidental Demon Slayer and the soon to be released The Dangerous Book For Demon Slayers. In fact, this entire week is just one great big celebration in honor of the release of second book in this great series! Why? Because I love the series, that's why. And I'm sure that once you've had a chance to read it (if you haven't already, which I'm sure you have) you will too!

Anyway, as I mentioned yesterday their would be prizes, and whoo boy do we have prizes! Signed books! Kiss My Asphalt Tee Shirts! Cover Flats, anyone? Oh, and SIGNED GALLEY PAGES from The Dangerous Book For Demon Slayers! So, what do I have to do? you may ask, to win such Novel prizes? Well, first, since we're talking Demons, you must make a virgin sacrifice and your first born, never mind, I require no such thing. Simply help us spread the word about Angie and her new book. We have widgets you can post, click here to get one. You can use your Facebook or MySpace status to send people our way. You can use your own blog. You can use e-mail, chat rooms, or any other form you so choose. If you do blog it, please leave me a link in the comments so I can link to you. All they have to do is leave a comment here (http://novelreads.wordpress.com/)saying you sent them. Easy Peasy, no? The comment can be on any post this week that is about Angie and her books or contest rules. There is no limit to how many people you can send our way, the more the merrier in fact, since we want to spread the word far and wide about this great series. Double entries if the person you send our way also gives us their Biker Witch Name, which today my name BWN is Mantrap Marcie Fancy Pants ! I'm definitely digging that one!

This is a pic of the front of the tee shirts up for grabs, and don't forget all the other loot Angie has graciously agreed to give out. For another chance to enter, simply leave a question in the comments for Angie to answer, as she's going to be doing a little Q&A with us this week. I have tell you, she's one busy lady this week, she's also, as I type this, on a plane to Orlando, FL for the RT Convention, where she'll be shadowed by Dimitri on night, and yes, I have requested pictures.

So, what are you waiting for? Get to entering! And for some reason, some comments are getting sent to me for moderation, I'm trying to catch them as quickly as possible, I don't know how to change that yet, but promise I am working on it. This is definitely a work in progress kind of site right now!

Take Care

The shirt is awesome!

Angie Fox said...

Hi all! I made it to sunny Florida (squee). The Romantic Times conference is going on this week and even if I didn't have a hot Dimitri following me around on Saturday(can't *wait* for that), it's shaping up to be a great time.

Thanks again for having me, Charity. In case you didn't know, it was Charity who made up the original Kiss My Asphalt t-shirts. I thought it was a great idea and made up some of my own.

And you can't see from the picture, but that's metallic silver paint on the shirts. My t-shirt guy was like, "silver on black? Those shirts are going to look so girly." Umm...that's the point!

Angie Fox said...

Hi Rachael! Thanks for spreading the word. :)

Angie Fox said...

Great to see you, Linda H. Er, I mean Leggy Lucy!

Angie Fox said...

LOL Two Date Tessa Hard Rider. Says a lot, Jennifer. :) Thanks for playing!

ReadingIsSoMuchFun said...

Hi Angie! Great to see you as well. I can not wait to get my hands on The Dangerous Book For Demon Slayers. The Accidental Demon Slayer was an awesome read loved it.

Angie, how long does it take you to finish writing a book?

Where do you get your ideas from?

Is it hard to come up with names for your characters?

Brandy said...

I was curious, do you still keep in touch with the bikers who "inspired" your book? *G*

Angie Fox said...

Hi Linda. Great questions. It usually takes me about five or six months to finish writing a book. It just depends on how fast the characters are talking.

As far as ideas, I just write what is fun and interesting to me. I figure if I'm amused, my readers will enjoy it too.

And character naming is actually one of my favorite things to do (as if you couldn't tell that from the biker name quiz). I don't have a formal process. I just experiment and see what happens.

Angie Fox said...

Hi Brandy, I do keep up with the bikers. They are a hoot. Er, I mean they help me with my research. Yeah, that's it.

Seriously, though, they are a fantastic source of stories and facts, too. As I'm writing, I'll email and ask, "now would a biker use this term?" or "I'm saying, 'She jumped on the bike and gunned the engine.' Is that the way to say it?"

Plus, a lot of them are readers of the series and they'll drop me notes about reading the book at a biker rally, just to get reactions or how a friend liked The Accidental Demon Slayer.

I wouldn't give up my bikers for anything. ;)

By the way, the link up there to get the code for the widget to put on the blog goes to doing a quiz. So where can I find the code to put the widget for the book on my blog? Thanks!

ChariDee said...

Hi Caffey! Thanks for stopping by! If you take the short quiz it will tell you how much of a Demon Slayer you are and give you the code for the widget!

Hi ChariDee,

I've got my widget on my blog. I'm 65% Demon Slayer. Now I'm working on getting a dog like Pirate who can tell me what's on his mind ;)

Hugs, Danette
