Guest Blog & Contest with Author Angie Fox

This week I have another guest from the author blog - Something Wicked.

Angie Fox deals with dogs, motorbikes and Demon Slayers. A strange combination but one that is worth reading about!

If you haven't already had the pleasure of reading one of Angie's books then make sure you enter the contest at the end of the guest blog. Enjoy!

-----------------------

Hi, my name is Angie Fox and I write a series about a preschool teacher turned demon slayer who has to run off with her grandmother’s gang of geriatric biker witches. But what cracks me up is that nobody ever asks me about that.

Biker witches? Sure! Demon slaying preschool teachers? Why not? What readers most want to know is why the hero of the books, Dimitri, is a shapeshifting griffin.

My answer is always – why not? Don’t get me wrong – I love werewolves and vampires and all kinds of heroes. But frankly, I’m surprised we don’t see more griffins in paranormal books.

Aside from being sexy as all get out, griffins are known to be loyal, intense and strong. Griffins were even a symbol of marriage in the Medieval church because they mate for life. I can’t think of a better quality for a hero to have. And while griffins may not be your classic Alpha “my way or the highway” type of guys, they are tough and absolutely willing to leap tall mountains (literally) for the women they love.

In honor of Dimitri, and griffins everywhere, I’m giving away a copy of my latest book, A Tale of Two Demon Slayers. I’m also running a contest right now to win naming rights to a character in my next book. To enter, just go to www.angiefox.com



-----------------------

Contest Time

As Angie mentioned in her guest blog...She is giving away a copy of A Tale of Two Demon Slayers!

To enter the contest all you have to do is take a little quiz ;) Angie has a few cool quizzes on her site but one stood out to me and I thought it would be nice to see what results you all got!

So just go take the quiz - What supernatural pet is right for you? and post your result to be entered!

No quiz result = No entry!

Earn another entry for each place you link this contest on the net. You can post of Facebook, Twitter & MySpace but make sure you add links here for me to confirm your entries!

You can also earn extra entries by emailing your friends about the contest. Just make sure you send a copy of your email or receipt to me at Amberkatzes_book_blog at gmx dot net.

Keep the contests going by using the Amazon links below and around the site!





The contest will stay open until Sunday 7th of February 2010 4pm CET and the winner will be picked by a randomizer. Entrants should check back to see if they have won. I do not hunt down winners and will pick new winners for any prizes not claimed within 7 days.

Good Luck!

Your ideal pet is Nostra, the psychic cat!

Sure, cats are smart, but yours can see the future. Literally. Treat her to some cat nip, or perhaps a nice scratch behind the ears...and maybe she'll let you know what else is in store.

My ideal supernatural pet was also Nostra the psychic cat. Nostra looks just like a cat I used to have. I'm really looking forward to reading this book.

Nostra appears to be very popular....you have some interesting readers, Amber!

Mi ideal pet is Frodo. guess that's beacuse I like dogs.

jeanette8042 said...

Your ideal pet is Frodo, the talking dog!

He's charming at chatty. He'll be your best friend for a tummy rub - or that pork chop from last night. Just don't let him hop on a motorcycle with the biker witches or you'll be in for a wild ride.

Nice! A talking dog!

Sarah said...

My pet was Nostra too - looks like a lot of psychic cats being adopted today LOL. I've already got a cat that I swear is posessed by a demon so I guess the more the merrier LOL :o)

This is a new series for me & it sounds great - I've added it to my wishlist & am looking forward to reading it!!

Angie Fox said...

This is cracking me up. What is it with you ladies and Nostra? She is a sweetie, don't get me wrong. And she did warn me that my mother-in-law was about to call, but still. She gets around!

wanda flanagan said...

My ideal pet is smoky the phoenix
Regal and inquisitive, the phoenix is one of the oldest and most exotic birds. Let her sit on your shoulder and you'll both be a hit around town

Your ideal pet is Frodo, the talking dog!
That's funny because I have two cats. But at least I got a different answer than the majority of comments - I like to be different :o)

dogzilla30 said...

My original answers gave me Nostra the psychic cat but I'm allergic to cats so I retook the quiz and ended up with Frodo the talking dog. I'm more a dog than cat person anyway. :)

Your ideal pet is Zippy, the three-headed dragon!

He may not be the most handsome creature on Earth, but who else can fly you to work? Or start up the barbecue grill in a single breath? Just make sure you have plenty of room in your bed - dragons like to cuddle


dragons rock lol

The quiz said my ideal pet was Frodo, the talking dog. Since I really prefer cats, I found that rather strange--maybe it is the talking part rather than barking that did it!

Well a dragon will snuggle you right out of your bed (and they *love* to eat shoe laces), so I think Nostra and Frodo will at least let you get a decent night's sleep. And Smoky the phoenix just plain rocks.

Thanks for taking the quiz, everyone!

Nostra, the psychic cat...I would love to have a cat (and psychic? even better!), but the hubby is firmly in the anti-cat camp.
