Celebrating with Jennifer L Armentrout

Welcome to a month long celebration!

What am I celebrating?


And it's gone up since then!

SO, I'm celebrating!

All month I will be posting interview and featuring books from some of my favorite authors!

Of course, there will be a HUGE giveaway to go along with it!
For every author that participates, I will add one of their books to the giveaway.  Every book will have a winner! This will be BIG!

JLA is first up!

Thanks so much for celebrating with me Jennifer!

I’m celebrating passing 700,000 page views on Stuck In Books and I’m so happy you’re here with me for that.

Hope you don’t mind me being silly with you for a bit.  Gotta have some fun, ya know.  Does it make me strange that I want to celebrate with authors?  It’s a bookish thing.

When you want to celebrate something fabulous, what do you do?

Lately? I’ve been celebrating my writing. Or going to bed early. What an interesting life I lead.
My celebrating beverage is Coke Zero. I know, I’m weird. What’s your celebrating beverage of choice?
Diet Root Beer.

I tend to hang out at parks with my one-year-old grandson for celebrations. Where is your celebration destination of choice?

To my couch or office to write. Woo! Party time up in here!

I might get stuck in a book to celebrate. Who am I kidding; of course that’s how I celebrate. (Buying a book is the best kind of celebration!) What was the last book you got stuck in?

The last book I got stuck in was Foreplay by Sophie Jordan. LOVED that book.

New adult books have become my new love. Do you have a genre that you prefer to read or write over all others?

I’d have to go with New Adult, because for me, it’s the perfect genre to write in since I write YA and Adult.

If you had to re-write the three little pigs or the three bears into a new adult book, which would you choose and how would you do it?

2 of the 3 pigs died in a tragic house collapse, leaving the 3rd pig all along and soul-weary, reluctant to trust others because her pig size heart has been broke. Said little pig skips off to college to start a new life and meets the sexy, tattooed big bear on campus, who’s a player but secretly has a heart of gold and bakes brownies (that’s for katiebabs) for fun and he does so sexily. Big bear on campus is also hiding a sad, sad past, too. His brothers were killed in a tragically tragic hunting accident while fishing for salmon. Together, they find true love, have hot inter-species sex, and learn you can only have a future when you let go of the past. That is until book two, when the big, bad wolf comes into the picture and huffs and puffs himself right into a love triangle.

You’re building the perfect ice cream sundae to share with one character from one of your books. What’s on the sundae and who are you sharing it with? Yeah – you need to explain your choice.

Daemon. He likes ice cream. And I think he deserves some.

You have woke up in the middle of one of your books but things aren’t unfolding as you thought. Which character has sabotaged the story and how will you convince them to fix it?

Pretty much all my characters sabotage all my neatly laid plans. They do that crap on purpose, especially if I turn in a synopsis to an editor. They like to make me look crazy. So I make them look crazier. That’s how I fix it.

You know my good news, what’s yours? (What’s the new book/project you got going or any other thing you’d like to share with peeps).

Actually I do have GREAT awesomely awesome news. Remember my last GREAT awesomely awesome news? It’s that awesomely awesome. But I can’t share that news yet. =)

Jennifer's most recent book is Origin (Lux, #4)

Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything.

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on?

And will they even be together?

NOW the GIVEAWAY part!
