ATTENTION: Change in Chat with Gena Showalter
Cough cough... may I have your attention, please. Due to a tremendous conflict (chat vs. the premiere of Lost), it is now apparent here at TKA that we must reschedule the chat with our star guest Gena Showalter for MONDAY SEPTEMBER 26th from 9-10PM EDT. While we know many of you have TiVo or a dinosaur recording device like me... putting the two fantastic events in competition with one another is quite a trying decision for too many fans (given the responses to our newly posted calendar). Please forgive me for scheduling the two against one another for *GASP* I am not much of a TV watcher; however, I can see myself getting hooked on a show like Lost. Please mark your calendars for MONDAY SEPTEMBER 26th from 9-10 PM EDT, as I am about to do on the TKA calendar posted on yahoo.
Now back to your regularly scheduled teaser...
What’s your favorite Sweet Valley Twins/High book? (I devoured those as a child too!!!)
Any book where Jessica and Elizabeth switched places. Straight-laced Elizabeth had to act like wild Jessica and vice versa, and I loved it! I’d always wanted an identical twin of my own, someone to blame for every bad deed.
What is it about Paranormal Romance that makes it YOUR niche?
Without a doubt, the possibilities. You can do anything and everything, create any kind of creature or circumstance, make dreams come true in the wildest ways. There are just are so many avenues to explore.
A place in the world you would LOVE to visit?
Besides Brad Pitt’s bedroom? Fiction wise, I’d have to say my version of Atlantis (as seen in Heart of the Dragon). I’d be quite the tart, dating the vampire king, the dragon king, and the nymph king (all at once). Real life, I’d say – and this is only if I could be placed in a deep sleep for the duration of travel (I hate planes) -- Scotland. Me loves me some men in kilts. Not to mention those accents!
Something you would love to tell all the writers, editors, and agents out there?
Go with your gut, always (then invent and blame a “twin” if it doesn’t work out).
