Interview + Giveaway with Ashlyn Chase

1. Tell us 3 things about yourself that readers may not know about you.

AC: I’m trained as an interior designer, hypnotherapist, and phlebotomist. I can hypnotize you so you won’t feel any pain while donating blood and redecorate the office before you get there.

2. What does a typical writing day look like for you?

AC: I wake up early, come to with a strong cup of coffee while I watch the news, go to my office with 2nd cup of coffee, answer email, check social media sites, and by 9 am, I’d better be writing. I knock off at lunchtime, do errands, and the stuff of daily living. (The laundry won’t do itself!) If time permits, I read until Mr. Amazing comes home.

3. Tell us a little bit about Flirting Under a Full Moon and why readers should check it out?

AC: Brandee is a down to earth girl that most of us can relate to. Nick is handsome, charming, and on the lookout for his life-mate. Unfortunately, because he doesn’t want to get tied down until he meets ‘the one’ he gets a playboy reputation. Brandee has just been dumped and needs Nick’s attention like a hole in the head. That’s about where the ‘normal’ stuff ends. Nick’s a werewolf and Brandee knows nothing about the paranormal. It is fun and mayhem from that point on. You’ll have to read it to know what I mean!

4. What was the easiest and hardest scene to write in Flirting Under a Full Moon? (without giving away too much)

AC: The easiest scene to write was Nick as a wolf, getting shot in the hindquarters—then shifting and showing up naked and bleeding at the hospital with his big hands covering his junk. (I have a bizarre sense of humor sometimes.) The hardest scene to write was probably the love scene where they were so hot for each other, they couldn’t get enough…but only had 1 condom.

5. What is your favorite type of character to write? Least?

AC: I love to write the character with no filter. He or she just says whatever they please and to heck with what others think. I have one like that in almost every book—including this one. What character don’t I like to write? I don’t know. I have fun with villains too.

6. What inspired you to write the Flirting with Fangs Trilogy?

AC: I had a hard time saying goodbye to my Strange Neighbor series. Flirting with Fangs is a spin-off series, and I was able to bring a few of the characters from the first series back. For instance, Nick’s an identical twin, and I was delighted to revisit his brother Konrad, hero of The Werewolf Upstairs.

7. Fun Question: If you could have dinner with one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

AC: Jim Carey. He has a fascinating life story, and I’ll bet he could make me laugh with his antics. It would be fun to see if I could make him laugh too.

8. Do you ever suffer with writer's block, and if you do, how do you handle it?

AC: I refuse to give in to it. If I reach a point where I need to take a break, it’ll be a short one. I might write something quick like a novella while giving the novel some breathing room, but I never stop.

9. What is up next for Ashlyn Chase?

AC: Book 2 in the Flirting with Fangs series, How to Date a Dragon, will be in stores in September, and then Book 3, Kissing with Fangs comes out in March 2014. I’m currently working on a proposal for my agent. I don’t want to say too much because it’s not under contract yet, but it’ll be a whole new series with a new setting, a new premise, and some interesting new characters! I’m already having fun just brainstorming it.

10. Do you have anything specific you want to tell your readers?

AC: You are getting sleepy. (Buy my books.) Your eyelids are heavy. (Buy my books.) You’re now completely relaxed. (Buy my books.) LOL
Flirting Under a Full Moon
(Flirting with Fangs Trilogy #1)
by: Ashlyn Chase
Publishing Date: 4/2/13
Publisher: Sourcebooks
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Description:
Never Cry Werewolf… 

Brandee has been dumped in every way possible, but by text is the last straw. That's it—she's officially done with men. Unfortunately, she's just been told her "soul mate" is the drool-worthy hottie all her friends call One-Night Nick. 

Nick has been searching for true love for one hundred years. After all, werewolves mate for life, and he does not want to mess this up. As soon as he kisses Brandee, he knows she's the one. But how will he convince a woman who knows nothing of paranormals that she's about to be bound to a werewolf forever?

After the Strange Neighbor series I can't wait to get a hold of Nick :). Thank you for this new series. I love PNR!

vsloboda(at)gmail(dot)com

lol! I love your attempt to hypnotize me to buy the book. You are so silly, well I gotta run and order a book. Maybe you have heard of it... Flirting Under a Full Moon ;)

Oh, Sharon. I love how you think it didn't work. And i love being silly. :)

Ash, you don't need to hypnotize us to buy your books -- your writing already does that!

Meghan said...

I've seen this book around and have been dying to read it! My question for the author is why she decided to write paranormal romance?
Thanks for the giveaway!

June M. said...

Congrats on the new trilogy! I know I will love this book (and the ones to come) because I love paranormal stories with some humor in them :)

Awww, Venus. Thank you!

And to answer your question, Meghan,
I just sort of 'fell into it.'
One of my former publishers asked me to write a vampire romance. It became Vampire Vintage. I had so much fun writing it, I had no problem expanding into other paranormals areas.

And June, if that's your style, you'll like this one. I had a lot of fun with it.

One of the things I love best about PNRs is the premise of a predestined forever mate, the instant recognition of one's soulmate. That is so sexy.

I agree, Sebella! I do that with my vampires too.

Barbara E. said...
