Interview with Paige Ali: Welcome Paige to Dazzled by Books. I am so happy to host you today. I wanted to start off today’s interview with something fun. What is your favorite book of 2017 so far? Paige: I’m currently reading Anna Kendrick’s Scrappy Little Nobody and loving it. I consider it sort of a how-to guide for surviving Hollywood. Plus, she’s just hilarious. A: How does it feel to have completed your first book series? P: Surreal. I’ve been working on Sunshine in general since 2010 but the books have been such a big part of my life for the […]

INTERVIEW   Ali: Thank you so much Roshani for joining us today on Dazzled by Books. I wanted to start off this Q & A with what is one thing you hope readers will get out of A Crown of Wishes? Roshani: I hope they close the book grinning. And maybe that night, they’ll dream about stories. And maybe the next day, they’ll see a bird dart from a tree and wonder if it came from Kubera’s court. A: How was writing A Crown of Wishes different than writing your debut? Was the editing process easier this time around? Did […]

Faithful Blog Tour: Interview

Ali: Today we have Michelle Hauck with us promoting her new book Faithful. Hi Michelle and thank you for coming. I wanted to start off our questions with, where did you get your inspiration for “Faithful”? Michelle Hauck: Since Faithful is a sequel, much of what happens comes from the first book, Grudging. Truth be told, when Harper Voyager put in an offer for Grudging, I had nothing planned for any sequels because looking too far ahead can be a useless proposition. With the help of my agent, I did a quick scramble and wrote a five paragraph blurb with […]

  Ali: Hello C. C. Hunter. Thank you for visiting Dazzled by Books on this lovely Monday. I wanted to kick this interview off with a question about your new book “Midnight Hour.” Where did you get your inspiration for “Midnight Hour”? C. C. Hunter: Midnight Hour is the tenth and final book in the Shadow Falls series.  When I first started the series, it was in Kylie Galen’s point of view.  But I quickly realized that her two roommates, Della and Miranda, had so much depth they would make great protagonists as well. So when I finished writing Kylie’s books, […]

I am so excited to have you on the blog today. I wanted to kick things off with a fun question, so what is your favorite book of 2016 so far? Laura: That’s such a hard one! The only thing that freaks me out more than picking favorites is ranking things on a scale of one to ten. I’ve read so many fantastic books this year — […]


Summer Days + Summer Nights Blog Tour: Review and Interview

Summer Days + Summer Nights Blog Tour: Review and Interview

Interview:  Ali: Hello Stephanie, Thank you for coming to hang out with Dazzled by Books. It is great getting to promote Summer Days and Summer Nights. I wanted to start off this interview with some anthology questions first. In the first anthology, I thought the overarching theme was hope. How does Summer Days and Summer Nights compare? Stephanie: That’s a wonderful interpretation, and it’s apt for these stories, too. I wanted the two anthologies to feel connected, and the easiest way to do that—when you have so many different authors and genres—is through theme. So we have love, and we have hope. Several […]

Ali: Hello Jeff! Thank you for stopping by Dazzled by Books today. We are so excited to have you. I wanted to kick things off with a fun question, so what is your favorite book of 2016 so far? Jeff: I started on Brandon Mull’s Five Kingdoms this year, so my favorite so far is Book #1, Sky Raiders. I think Mull does a great job of creating tension right away to hook you into the story. I loved his Fablehaven books and Beyonders, so it’s time for another fix. A: Did you always want to be a writer?  J: If you ask […]

Praise for “The Star – Touched Queen:”  “A setting drawn from ancient India, romance with feminist sensibilities, and a unique magic system…a stunning debut filled with lush writing, smart characters, and a mysterious plot that provides as many twists as it does swoons.” —School Library Journal, STARRED Review “Chokshi’s rich, descriptive writing weaves a lush web…a swoony romance, betrayal, and a journey to power and self-affirmation, with a slightly wicked, slightly funny animal sidekick in the best tradition… work together to create a spell that many readers will willingly succumb to. Richly imagined, deeply mythic, filled with lovely language with […]

Ali: Thank you Nora for stopping by Dazzled by Books today. It is really great to have you here.

Nora: Not that any of them were published in 2016, but of the books I’ve read so far this year, I’ve really enjoyed All The Bright Places (YA), Big Little Lies (Women’s Fiction) and All The Light We Cannot See (Literary). (There’s a “light” theme apparently.) I am also deeply excited for Curtis Sittenfeld’s Eligible. A: […]

Ali: Hello L.J. Hatton. Thank you so much for stopping by at Dazzled by Books today. Hopefully we will be able to have a little bit of fun with this interview. Let’s kick it off with what is your favorite book of 2016 so far?   L.J. Hatton: I’ve been a terrible reader this year. Between real life (aka the exploding washing machine…) and working on Book 3 for the Celestine series, I haven’t read any books. But if we extend it to the end of last year, then my favorites are The Last Ever After (School for Good and […]
