PSB- Interview & Giveaway with C.C. Hunter

Today, the great Christie (aka C.C. Hunter) made us the honor to stop by the blog, and chat about her newest release (It’s releasing today actually *Squee*), Born at Midnight! Read along to discover more about this new series, some fun tidbits about Christie’s life and a giveaway!

 

 

PSB2

Born at Midnight, really sounds like an awesome book, can you tell us a bit more about what to expect? 

KylieThank you, Cindy.  It’s such a pleasure to be here and discuss my book.  I have to be honest – I loved writing Born at Midnight!  As for what it’s about, well, it’s about a lot of things, really.  First, it’s about a teen camp for supernaturals.  It’s also about a young girl’s identity crisis.  Of accepting that everything she didn’t think is real is real and a lot of the things she thought were true turn out to be lies.  It’s about growing up, discovering who you are, what’s important to you and learning to deal with the mistakes you make, as well as the mistakes of our parents.

From what I gathered, we won't know what Kylie is in the first book, but how does she discover that's she's not really normal?

Good question!  The biggest clue that Kylie’s troubles don’t fit into the ordinary no-big-deal trouble variety is that she’s acquired a very strange stalker--a scary-looking dude wearing army duds.  But when no one but her can see him, she starts to get worried.  Kylie’s eyes are really opened about the supernatural world when she arrives at Shadow Falls Camp.  Vampires. Werewolves.  Shapeshifters.  Even witches and fairies.  But the oddest thing is that all of them think she’s one of them, though they’re not exactly sure what she is.

Your story is set in a school for paranormal kids and I find myself wondering what do regular teen conflicts are like when shifters, vampires and faeries are involved?

The thing I worked really hard to do was to humanize all my characters.  I wanted the problems they faced, to be some of the same problems real life teens face.   From parental issues, fitting in, and accepting others to insecurities about how we look, and making choices about sex and who we should or shouldn’t allow into our lives.  Now, some of those problems get an extra layer when you’re dealing with supernaturals but the basics are still the same.

I've seen a lovely post on your blog on how you chose the title of your book, and I'm curious about how you chose your characters name?

Okay, I’ll confess, I’m terrible with coming up with the names for my characters.  You want to know Kylie2where most of the names come from?  From author names that just happen to be on the books lining my bookshelves beside my desk.  I’m writing and realize I need a name and I’ll glance over to my bookshelf and choose the first one that catches my eye.  One of my critique partners is always telling me that I need to branch out and come up with names that didn’t sound as if they were all from the same family.  LOL.  So with this series, I tried to come up with some names that were at least different. 

I can only guess how hard it is to write a book, what's your favorite part of the whole process?

Starting a book.  I love when I first get going and the characters start coming to life right on the page.  I love it when they suddenly won’t do what I tell them to do, because they’ve sort of gotten a life of their own.  Kylie did that when I wrote Born At Midnight, and Alone At Dawn, book 2 of the Shadow Falls series.  I’m working on the third book in the series and, yep, you guessed it.  Kylie is running the show.  Sometimes I just can’t type the words fast enough . . . and I couldn’t be happier!

Can you tell us 3 surprising facts about yourself?

Hmm.  Okay, I’ll give it a try:

  1. I was put in handcuffs once for throwing a bottle at a cop car’s windshield and calling him a pig.  Thankfully, I was getting paid to do it.  I was working as an extra on a movie.  I’m really not that crazy.  LOL.
  2. I speak fluent Spanish, so fluent that and I was once accused of dyeing my hair blond, and faking being an American when I lived in South America.  I swear I’m a natural blond!  (Although my hair stylist does have to give me a little extra help every now and then.  LOL.)
  3. In my past, before I wrote novels full-time, I worked as a photojournalist.  I’ve traveled to places like China, and France to do photos and write travel articles.

 

Last, would you please share with us your best Spring Break memory?

Okay, that one’s easy!  I had a crazy cousin who lived about fifty miles away from me and we only got to see each other during spring break and summers.  We were both good kids, but there was something about each of us that brought out the crazy in each other.  Every time we got together, we’d get in so much trouble, not like really bad stuff, but like the time we were twelve and she decided we were going to ride this horse that was in a pasture near my house. 

So, did we go ask the neighbors if we could do this?  Oh, no, we took it upon ourselves and climbed the fence and just went for it.  I think she’d seen a western movie about breaking horses and she was certain all we had to do was climb on its back and hang on to its mane.  I wasn’t as certain, but I wasn’t about to let Jenny get all the credit for breaking that horse, so I went along with her plan. 

Well, let’s just say we didn’t hang on tight enough.  Not the first time or the fifth time that old horse tossed us off his back.  Finally, he just got tired of our game and we got chased out of the pasture by a very ticked off horse baring his teeth, and we were forced to climb a barbed-wired fence in record time.  I still have scars from that day.  But I think those scars are prettier than those I would have gotten from that dang horse and his yellowed teeth.  Ahh, but the memories of those weeks spent with Jenny still make me smile.

Thank you so much Christie for taking the time to chat with us! It’s greatly appreciated <3

Now here’s a bit more about her books!

bornatmidnight-final

Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams,  Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever.  Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.”  Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either.  Or does she?  They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason.  As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas.  Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past.  Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart. 

Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

Amazon // Book Depository

 

Awake at Dawn10

Please take not that even though this blurb was written by C.C. Hunter, it is not the final/official version.

Kylie Galen thought her life was a mess before she went to Shadow Falls Camp.  However, now that she’s discovered she’s not human, the problems presenting themselves are anything but normal.

She’s is determined to uncover the answer to her supernatural heritage, but with a ghost insisting someone Kylie loves is about to die,  her newly developed sixth sense telling her someone is watching her and a rogue vampire on a murdering rampage, Kylie’s quest for answers is on hold.   As if her life isn’t difficult enough, just when she’s about to give her heart to Derek, he starts pulling away.  When Lucas comes back, Kylie’s feels more conflicted than ever.   Kylie’s weekend with her mom should have been just the break Kylie needs, but it turns out to be her breaking point.   Finding out her heritage may not ever matter if she doesn’t survive.

Also, you can now get a shot story introducing the Shadow Falls world for FREE:

  4. Don't think I have ever really considered being not human !

    But thinking about it, I suppose it would really depend on what type of non-human I was.

    I think creatures such as vampires,were-animals, zombies etc., are all basically bad/evil despite how they are sometimes pictured in novels these days. Whereas fairies,elves,witches seem to often be good.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it to worldwide entries.

  5. I would probably have a quick freak moment, then instantly embrace it. I've always fantasized about it, so it wouldn't be that difficult to get used to once the shock wore off.

  7. Hmm... how I'd react if I learned I wasn't human... I think I'd be shocked and afraid. Shocked because I look human (lol) and because most people don't actually believe in supernatural creatures. Then I'd be deadly afraid of being caught, imprisoned, experimented on. And of getting sick... after all, doctors wouldn't really know much about my physiology. O_O
    But if I had powers I'd also think that was awesome I suppose. We all want the power to manipulate some aspects of our life. :D

    ReplyDelete
  8. First I'd very scared, I think. I'd question the new situation and probably I wouldn't be able to accept it. Then I'd cry. But maybe later, I'd take advantage of this difference, who knows:)

  10. Hi, Tynga,

    Thanks so much for having me here today to talk about Born at Midnight. My Shadow Falls series has a special place in my heart - I'm working on book 3 of the series, Taken at Dusk, and the more time I spend in their universe, the closer I feel I grow to the characters. (Crazy writer stuff, I guess. lol.) I'm still jumping up and down with excitement that my baby is finally out there.

    Best of luck to everyone who posts. And don't forget, today is the last day to win a Kindle. More details are at my website - www.CCHunterBooks.com.

  11. I don't think there'd only be one reaction. it'd be a mixture, my first would be 'Huh?' followed by confusion, excitement and being annoyed at my parents fro not telling me! I be quite happy though because I want to believe in the supernatural so to find out I wasn't human but supernatural? I'd be excited and happy about it if a little annoyed at not knowing sooner!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Tricky one. I have NO IDEA how I'd react. But it must be terrifying, like basically your entire life was a lie :O

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think I would be excited if I found out I was not human - it would be mysterious.

    I would love it if I found out I wasn't merely human... I've always wanted to be different. :) How cool would that be?

  15. How I would react would all depend on what the other half ended up being. I think I'd be a bit upset if I was half bat, lizard, or god forbid, spider. But if I was half fae, dragon, wolf, lion....I think that would be pretty fun. At least for awhile.

  20. Hi, Guys,

    Thanks for all the interesting responses about what you'd do if you discovered you weren't human. Freaking out a little (a lot?) makes a lot of sense to me. Oh, and Jasmyn, you had me giggling here - can you imagine being part spider? ewww. LOL.

    If I found out I wasn't really human...I'd be deeply satisfied. I've always wished that there were more to the world than meets the eye.
    And I <3 werewolves, even more than bookmarks :) (which is saying something)

  23. It would be really hard at first, I think, everything I've ever known would have to change. And that could mean a lot of different things.
    But I also think that it would be REALLY rad! Defying the laws of nature, doing things people only dream (or read;)) about! Thanks for the contest!

  28. I wouldn't freak, I've always thought there is something "different" about me. I would love to be a witch or a vampire. x @susankmann

    ReplyDelete
  29. I suppose my reaction (whether good or bad) would depend on what kind of supernatural being I was and what kind of powers/abilities & transformations/changes that would include. For example, possessing magical abilities would be pretty cool & exciting, but growing horns & tail would be rather scary (and a major complication if trying to be inconspicuous).

I will freak, and start asking question after question even if it takes 3 days. I would go on a journey, by myself if I have to, to find out what and who I am. But once I do, there's nothing to do, but to accept the person I am, cause there's nothing that can change that. And I would learn to live and adjust as my new self. :)

  70. I honestly think that if I found out I wasn't human the first thing I'd go into would be shock. I'd be thinking the usually questions, "What the hell am I? How could I have not known? How could they (whoever) have lied to me? What does this mean?" and then some.
    Then I'd probably adjust to it, depending on what it meant for my life.

  73. I can kind of answer this from experience. Oh yeah, I'm human. Just the aspect of finding out your different and your world is suddenly not the same anyone.

    I think I'd handle it the same way I did when I went deaf. I'd be scared, frightened of the changes, then angry, and withdraw from the world for a while. Over time I'd come to explore my options, get to know myself as this entirely new person, different but still alike in so many ways. And that's pretty much how I would handle finding out I wasn't human.

    Thanks for the opportunity! (Hugs)Indigo

  78. I would be shocked then go into denial, because supernatural things aren't really real, unfortunately! Then I would just accept it after some time and PROOF! ;)

  79. I would probably be in shock first but then I would want to know who I am. I would also want to know why it was kept a secret from me. Please enter me in contest. I would love to read this book. Tore923@aol.com

  80. I think I would probably freak out, and then eventually embrace what I am.

  82. I would be completely stunned to learn I was all humna. Then I'd be all about what special abilities I may have or whether I had a longer life, etc.

  83. To tell you the trust I would be kinda scared at first but then I would be wildly in love with the idea. Growning up I always wish I was a fairy or a mermaid, so the idea would make me feel very special. :)

  85. If I learned I wasn't really human.. Well, might sound stupid, but I'd be.. relieved. Of course it would freak me out at first (I mean, I identify myself through things like my fav color. Me being not human HAS to freak me out :D), but after that.. Yes. Relieve. I see what humans do, the good and the bad things. Sometimes it'd be nice to be able to say that I'm not responsible for anything like that, that I'm not a part of this race. As I said: Stupid thought.. ;)

  86. * sequels from excitement* I can't wait to read this! It sounds so good :D Thank you!
    I think it would be difficult to find out I wasn't human, but when your around others who aren't human either. I'm sure it helps a little bit to know you aren't alone.

  91. There would be a short period of freaking out followed by me trying out whatever cool new things I can do, if any. If not, probably more freaking out...

  95. I think how I would react if I learn that I am not really human would be mild freaking out and then getting super excited to discover what I am or what special abilities I may have. My answer is totally skewered because I read too much in the paranormal genre, lol :)

  104. If I learned I wasn't human, I think I'll snap! I'll ask a lot of questions: 1. whether I'm a good or bad nonhuman being, in terms of character, background and looks! 2. whether my family is my real family 3. what is the meaning of growing up in the human world?

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  105. I read a lot of paranormal books. Yet the thought of being told I was not human seems so out there. I don't think I'd believe the person telling me. And I think I would definitely freak out a lot!

  113. I want this book so badly, I think I've entered every giveaway going! It's n ot out over here till May =/

    I think if I found out I wasn't human I'd probably be over the moon. I'm always sick, and I'm pretty weak and rubbish; so I'd take that as a sign I'd been eating the wrong foods or going out in daylight or something. So I'd be happy to be a cool superstrong supernatural creature instead of a weakling human!

  115. This book looks awesome, thanks for hosting! :D

    If I found out I wasn't human, I'd probably panic, and scream and cry... I don't think I'd want to not be human. Especially if I then had to hide the fact that I drank blood, or turned into a wolf, or could use magic, or whatever I could do... That would be extremely inconvenient and annoying. :L

  117. I'm not exactly sure how I would be, at first I would probably be super excited. Then comes all the bad stuff and I'd probably freak out. Thanks so much for the giveaway and the interview! I've been wanting to read this book for a long time so I have my fingers crossed!

  120. Ahah, good question, well I would probably freak the hell out at first, then I would think I was nuts, and then, once I got proof it was indeed true, I would certainly think I was lucky because I would be just like those girls I read about, those girls who go through great adventures. Humans never get the same amount of fun that non-humans do. ;)

  121. If I found out I was not human I would most likely frake out and lock myslf in my room until I could calm down, and try live my lfe as normally as possible so I can figure more out about where I'm from.

  122. I'd probably freak out at first, but then I'd probably get excited, and want to test out my powers. Well at least I would hope I would have some sort of cool ability.

  127. Well , firstly since this is reality . When we read books and see movies - a person freaks out when they're not human . But for most of us reading , we would be thinking like "Wow , it's so cool! I wish I was one" or something like that ? That's what we tend to forget . When we really find out that we're not human , would we really think it's cool ? We would mostly like most books , freak out . So I definitely have to say my reaction would be freaking out and wishing that I was a human . And constantly asking questions to why am I not a human ? But probably as times goes , I know I have to accept it and come into terms with myself .

  128. This sounds like a really good series. Ty for sharing the great post and blurbs. LOLed @ the handcuffs and Spanish.

    I guess it would depend on what it was I was supposed to actually be, but honestly I don't think most possibilities would bother me - in fact some would be pretty cool :).

  133. How I would react... I would freak out! It also depends on how inhuman... Maybe after freaking out I would think calmly and then become excited. Again it depends...

  134. Thanks for the giveaway! I would love to read the book, it sounds really great! So, how do I think I’d react if I learned I'm not really human? Well it depends on what I become. Being a werewolf or a vampire certainly has its drawbacks but it would make me special. I think I would jump everywhere, happy. Then I'll feel the pain, and I won't be that happy :)
