Mini Interview & Giveaway: Rachel Wade

Please welcome, Rachel Wade, author of Amaranth!

**crowd yelling & screaming**

So, I figured we'd keep the interview simple & easy!

 Top 3 Restaurants:
 I love SkyCity at the Space Needle (their tiramisu is out of this world, as is the view), a whole bunch of little joints at Pike Place Market (a Korean BBQ place I can never remember the name of), and the Lower Tavern on Orcas Island

(view the SkyCity)

Top 3 Book Boyfriends:
I never thought any book boyfriend would top Edward Cullen for me, but I recently began reading the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James, and now Christian Grey is positively my number one book boyfriend. He’s tortured, bossy (in a very good way...), and passionate. Don’t see anyone topping him—ever. Edward Cullen would come in second, followed by Damon from Vampire Diaries....for now

(Christian Grey of Fifty Shades)

Top 3 Holidays:
I love Easter, Christmas, and Halloween—in no particular order. Love ‘em all.

Top 3 Places to Live:
I’m a total hippie. Orcas Island, WA is my number one. And if I didn’t need peace and quiet, then downtown Seattle near the Market district would be my home. I also love the South and would live in Southern Louisiana in a heartbeat.



Rachel is kind enough of offer up 5 copies of Amaranth!!

  • Leave a comment telling me who your book boyfriend/girlfriend is
  • E-mail, so I can stalk ya ;)

Contest IS international & will run until Friday the 30th!

@ Eli : Thanks so much, Eli. You have some good book boyfriend picks there. ;) So glad you're enjoying Amaranth so far.

@Kristiana: Thanks for stopping by and for your interest, Kristiana. I love Jacob too, actually. He's a cutie and if Edward wasn't so dark and brooding (which I'm a sucker for), then Jacob would be my next pick in the series. Hope you enjoy the book!

Too many to choose from, but here is the short list. Bones from Jeaniene Frost Night Huntress series, Doyle from Laurell K Hamilton's Meredith Gentry series, Jason from Laurell's Anita Blake series, Damon from Vampire Diaries, and Adam from Mercy Thompson series. too hard to pick just one.
Rachel is a new author for me and am always looking for new authors and books to read. Would love to win and read this book, so please choose me for the giveaway.
