Six months ago, Abby Sinclair was struggling to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Now, she has an enchanted iPod, a miniature unicorn living in her underwear drawer, and a magical marketplace to manage. But despite her growing knowledge of the OtherWorld, Abby isn’t at all prepared for Brystion, the dark, mysterious, and sexy-as- sin incubus searching for his sister, convinced Abby has the key to the succubus’s whereabouts. Abby has enough problems without having this seductive shape-shifter literally invade her dreams to get information. But when her Faery boss and some of her friends vanish, as well, Abby and Brystion must form an uneasy alliance. As she is sucked deeper and deeper into this perilous world of faeries, angels, and daemons, Abby realizes her life is in as much danger as her heart—and there’s no one she can trust to save her.
I also had the chance to meet Allison at the RWA National Conference in Orlando last year. Not only is her book great, but she's a really cool person, too.
So, I sent her a few questions. Yanno, so we can get a peek into this debut author's mind. These are some very important (*cough*) questions. :D Hope you enjoy!
Allison: Well, I have the perfect solution to both.
It’s made out of composite nylon and plastic so it will go through metal detectors. It’s not actually a dagger, but could easily be used to puncture someone (those pesky vampires I’d be fighting? Note the nice blood channels grooved into the sides.) So, it would be great for when I went clubbing and had to take care of the undead up close and personal. When I’m done and cleaning up, I can use the hairbrush to fix my hair. And for practical reasons, short hair is probably the best.
Allison: The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle. If it wasn’t the book, it would have been the movie (which I recorded onto audio tape when I was in 2nd grade and listened to every night before I went to bed. Obsessive? No, not at all.)
Kelly: If you could visit any fictional world, which would it be and why?
Allison: I honestly don't know. I love so many of them that I don't think I can pick. Might be kinda awesome to visit the world of Anne Bishop's Black Jewels, though.
Kelly: Favorite thing to dip your fries in?
Kelly: Beach or Mountains?
Kelly: Pencil or Pen?
Kelly: Besides writing do you have any other creative loves or endeavors?
Kelly: One thing readers would be surprised to know about you?
Kelly: Any other projects in the works?
