See you Monday!

LOST and FOUND is finally here!!

 

LOST and FOUND, book 2 of the Find Me Series hits the Amazon eBook shelves on Friday, March 15th! Are you ready to find out what happens next?

 

She survived Earth’s worst global pandemic. In the city she learned how to cope with the roaming dead. Tucked away in the mountains she struck down the living who tried to kill her. Now Riley fights a new battle – the one within herself. Wracked with survivor’s guilt and an almost crazed sense of duty that takes her out of the solitude of the Southern California mountains and into the heart of Orange County, she makes a series of choices that can lead to the destruction of everything she’s managed to save.

In the end, will it all be worth it? What will be lost? What will be found? And which questions will be left unanswered?

Meet Amber Garza, Author of ‘Dazzle’!

A little about Amber: Amber Garza lives in California with her amazing husband, and two hilarious children who provide her with enough material to keep her writing for years. She writes young adult thrillers.

Hi, thanks for joining us today, Amber! Can you tell us more about your latest book?

Dazzle is the first book in the Delaney’s Gift Series. The series is about sixteen-year-old Delaney Scott who lives in the fictional town of Edenly. She has a special gift that she is supposed to use to save her people, however all Delaney wants is to be normal. That’s what attracts her to bad boy Sam Peterson. Only he has secrets that could destroy her.

Dazzle sounds interesting! You have mentioned in your Author bio that your children are your inspiration…can you share a funny story or two about them?

Well, to be honest the older they get they are not as funny anymore. My son is now a teenager so he’s not making me laugh much these days. Ha! But actually, I do have a funny story about my ten-year-old daughter. A couple of weeks ago she was singing, “Aint no rest for the wicked, money don’t grow on jeans.” When I told her that it’s actually trees, she said, “No, I’m pretty sure it’s jeans.” Oo-kay!

LOL! I like that version! 😀 So, can you tell us about your writing process, do you have a daily writing routine?

I wish. I’m too distracted to have anything resembling a routine. But I do make time to write every day. Sometimes I get a good 6 hours in if I’m in a good writing groove, but most days I get in a good 2-3 hours. I write while the kids are in school, on my laptop while listening to music.

Sounds like my schedule, lol. What are your top five favorite books?

That is so hard because I like so many. Yikes…I will pick one from each of my favorite genres:

Blue Diary by Alice Hoffman, The Oath by Frank Peretti, City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffeneger, Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

Oooh – good ones! If you could pick any Author, living or dead, to review your book, who would you choose and why?

Alice Hoffman, because she is my all time favorite author, and if she liked my work that would be so incredible!

Have you always wanted to be a writer?

Yes.

So, just for fun – If you woke up rich tomorrow, what would be the first thing you did?

First I’d go to Temple Coffee and get a mocha! Ha! But then I would probably start house hunting. We lost our home a few years ago to foreclosure and we now rent a duplex. We definitely need a bigger place and it’s something we’re saving for.

I’m sorry to hear that. I hope you can expand your living quarters soon! 😀 Do you have any advice for budding authors?

Yes, write what you love. Write daily, and never give up! Also, read a ton.

Yes! All of that! So, Amber – What can we expect to see from you in the future and where can we find your work?

I am about to release my Prowl Trilogy as a one-volume special edition book just in time for the holidays. It will come out November 23 (black Friday). After that, the second book in the Delaney’s Gift Series entitled SHATTER will release spring of 2013. You can find all my books on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords. All my titles are available in both paperback and ebook.

Thank you! A last question for you before we wrap up the interview…If you could choose any fictional character to spend a day with, who would you choose and why?

That’s so easy! Jace from Mortal Instruments because he’s my book boyfriend!

LOL ‘book boyfriend’ – love it. It is time for our Rapid-Fire round – here we go:

Wine or Chocolate? Wine

Cats or Dogs? Cats

Tent or Hotel? hotel

Beach or Pool? beach

Shoes or Bare Feet? shoes

eReader or Paperback? paperback

A Partner That Does Laundry or a Partner That Gives Massages? massage

Bra or No Bra? bra
