It's Ali Week: Interviews and Giveaways!

Gypsy and ninja chat it out all week on my blog. I am so excited to have Ali Cross here! The launch of her debut novel, Become, is Friday so she's going to be answering some random questions for us in true ninja style. Of course, I'll be asking them in true gypsy style. Without further ado:

Where did you get the inspiration for Become?

AC: Sometimes I like to play the "what if" game to see if I can come up with any neat ideas for a story. Usually it's a concept--which this one was. "What if the devil's daughter only wanted to do good?" That was the nugget from which the story sprang!

Sweet or savory? 

AC: Um, sweet. :)

Do you have a favorite character in Become?

AC: Well, I love them all. Even the bad guys. But I suppose in order they go, Desi, Lucy, Michael, James, Miri. :)

Status quo or change?

AC: I think change is fun. :)

Can you give us a favorite quote from Become?

AC: I have a handful of favorites, but right at this moment I like this one: "I could be the same as I ever was, or I could be something more." (pg. 218)
Ali is generously giving one copy of her e-book away from now until Thursday. What do you have to do to win one for yourself? Follow my blog, follow Ali's blog, spread the word on your favorite social media site (or all of them!) and leave a comment on each post on the days you'd like to enter. The more days you enter, the more chances you have to win. I will be randomly picking five different winners total. Come back on Friday to enter for the grand prize, which I'll reveal then. You won't want to miss it!

*All contest winners will be announced on Monday, November 14th. International contestants are only eligible for the e-book prizes.
