Hello everyone!

Wow, it's been awhile since I've last posted on this blog. It's been a good break, but I'm excited to be back. And I'm starting the return with a giveaway! Those who have been following this blog for awhile know that I don't do many giveaways unless I'm really excited about them.

And I'm really excited about this book. ;) 

I met the author, Brianna Merritt, last year at Realm Makers (during lunch, actually. there's something about food that can form fabulous friendships.)

Now she's publishing books and being all amazing and I can't be happier for her. Before we get to the fun interview and giveaway and about the fantastic book, WATCH THIS BOOK TRAILER. Alea Harper made it (who was also at that food-bonding lunch table at Realm Makers) and if this doesn't make you want to buy the book, I don't know what will.


what was the first book that made you cry?

Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas. The ending of the book is just... AHHH! So emotional!

what does a typical writing day look like for you?

A typical writing day for me looks like a trip to the kitchen to get a cup of tea, flipping through my social media accounts (including a trip through my Pinterest boards for the WIP I'm writing on that day), and then choosing my music. After that it's just a matter of letting the words flow. :)

if you could spend a day with any of your characters, which one would it be, and what would you do?

Tough question. I think I would choose Garrett. He's a very mysterious, very deep guy and I think it would be fun to get to know him better. We'd probably end up going for a drive to get coffee and then spying on the rest of the Unsanctioned Eyes crew.

tea or coffee? 

plotting, writing, or editing?
Writing, though all three are enjoyable.

morning or night writer?
Night writer.

introvert or extrovert?
Introvert with the insane super power of coming across extroverted when I need to be. ;)

Her death was just the beginning.
Quinn Rogers doesn't exist. There are no records of her name. Her DNA has no match. She is a ghost. A phantom killer no one can trace. The perfect assassin. Or so she thinks.
At the top of her game, Quinn's no longer looking over her shoulder. Her master will protect her, save her, like he always has. But there are forces at work neither of them suspect.
Can Quinn find the truth in a world of lies? Or will her unsanctioned past catch up to her in the end?
find Unsanctioned Eyes on Amazon and Goodreads! 

Brianna is most graciously giving away a copy of Unsanctioned Eyes, along with a matching bookmarks and a notebook! I'll be very happy for whoever wins, but I also might be a bit jealous. :P JUST LOOK AT THOSE PRIZES. *stalks mailbox waiting for my copy to come*

This giveaway is US only
(sorry... BUT I've heard rumors from Brianna herself that she plans to do an international one in the future, so make sure to follow her so you don't miss that :D) and ends July 7th. Good luck!
