Interview w/ Julie Kagawa and a contest!

First up to help celebrate reaching 100 followers is the wonderul Julie Kagawa, whose book The Iron King was just released. She was kind enough to stop by and answer a few questions.


Q:Thanks for joining us today Julie, can you start off by telling us a little bit about yourself?

A: A little bit about myself, huh? Hm, how to make it sound interesting? Well, I'm half-asian, I like manga and anime (and bishounen), I used to be a dogtrainer, I grew up in Hawaii, I once had a pet tarantula, and my favorite way to relax is killing something on the Wii, XBox, or PS3. Oh, and I'm a ninja. (shh, don't tell.)

Q: Will The Iron King be a stand alone novel or can we be expecting a sequel sometime in the future?

A: It's the first of a trilogy, actually. The second book is called The Iron Daughter, which comes out this August, and the last book is called The Iron Queen.

Q: How did you get your start in writing?

A: You just start writing. Really, that's the secret. I didn't have any special instruction or attend any college classes, I just started writing. Granted, I went to a few writing workshops, but they were more for honing skills, not for getting started. If you want to write, just sit down and do it. :)

Q: Anything in the works?

A: I do have a couple projects planned for after The Iron Fey series, but
they're kinda secret at the moment. I'm excited, though.

Q: What are some of your favorite books/authors?

A: Favorite books? Oh, goodness. The full list would be too long to post. I'll name a FEW favorites. Poison Study, Perfect Chemistry, Harry Potter, The Lightning Thief, Tithe, Lord of the Rings, The Fox Woman, Assassin's Apprentice, Bird-by-Bird, Anne of Green Gables, Memoires of a Geisha, Helm, Song in the Silence, anything by Jim Butcher, anything by Neil Gaiman ... okay, I'll stop now.

Silly Randomness:

Chocolate or vanilla: Chocolate

Fav. Animal: Fox (real) or dragon (mythical)

Televisions shows or movies: Castle, NCIS, Bones, Buffy, Firefly

Nickname: I was called "Skunk" in high school. Didn't really appreciate that nickname much, lol!

Thanks so much for taking the time out to join us today, I really appreciate it, as i'm sure the readers do too! Hope you have a great day!
