If you’ve been following me for a while you know I LOVE Andrea Creamer and her first book, Nightshade. Now her second book, Wolfsbane, releases only in July but I though inviting her to close the fest with me was a great way to tease ourselves with a taste of what’s to come this summer! Before I give the stage to Andrea, here’s a bit about Nightshade:
Calla Tor has always know her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she’ll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding scared sites for the keepers. But when she violate her masters’ by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might loose everything- including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?
Now let’s welcome Andrea!
A frequent question I get is "if there was a movie who would your dream Nightshade cast be"?
It's a super fun game to play and I do have answers. But before I give them, I have a qualifier:
It's really, really important to me that readers envision characters the way they want to. The people I'll mention here are just my ideas - but I love that every person that encounters the Nightshade pack will have their own picks.
Those who follow me on Twitter know that I've had Ren pegged for a long time.
And he is PERFECT for Shay. *Swoons* I am sooooo happy. Thanks, Mitali!!
So there are the two lovely boys vying for Calla.
As for Calla herself, She was tricky too and I’m still not 100% convinced about this pick. The model they found for the cover was perfect. But in terms of actresses, the closest I've seen of the way I imagine Calla is this photo of Dianna Agron:
And there you have it.
And special treat - A WOLFSBANE excerpt:
Someone else. Now I wasn’t just hearing Ren’s teasing whisper. I could see his face and remember the way he’d pulled me against him the night I’d run from Vail. From the ceremony where I should have become his mate. He’d kissed me, pleaded with me to say. Where was he now? He’d lied to help us escape. I didn’t want to think about the price he’d paid for that lie.
Before you leave us Andrea, What’s your best spring break memory?
My favorite spring break memory happened in my third year of graduate school right after my now-husband I and got engaged we took a trip to Arizona. I found my wedding dress in Tuscon!
Thank you so much Andrea for stopping by! I love your cast and I really can’t wait for Wolfsbane!
