    Cheers, V

    I haven’t read the books yet but now I’ll definitely have to!

  40. Great interview! It was fun watching you two have so much fun! I liked hearing how you had to keep going back and checking all your facts in the first book…to make sure they were accurate for the second book. Such dedication…not everyone does that. Your series sounds fascinating…very different than anything else I’ve read…I’d LOVE to get my hands on it! Thx for the AWESOME and VERY generous giveaway opportunity! 🙂 And congrats on this newest release!

  41. Thanks for a great interview! Definitely nice to put a face to the name 🙂

    Congrats on the new release and thanks for creating such a wonderful series!

  42. Yup, I saw how to enter. Thanks for the interview. I think I drove my family a little nuts because I kept turning up the volume because they kept try to talk while I was listening! jepebATverizonDOTnet

    You know, I’m really sad about not being able to meet my favorite authors (most of them are North American) and thanks to Julie and some others bloggers as gifted, I have the feeling to know you better! That’s great!! 🙂

  47. This was a great interview. I enjoyed watching it and learning more about the books. I like when I can hear things directly from an author 🙂

  48. Great face to face interview! I can’t wait to read about Alez’s next adventure.

  49. @Zendastark: we make a great pair, then, because I’m still in awe of the idea that readers write to me! 😉

    @Robert: it’s always nice to know a little bit about the person behind the story, isn’t it? Glad you enjoyed the interview!

    @Toni: I hope you enjoy! 🙂

  50. Great interview, I enjoyed.

    Although I mostly read YA (because I write YA) I’m intrigued about this series. Especially being from a local writer. Will have to look into these.
