Blog Tour Interview with Trisha Wolfe, Author of Fireblood (and GIVEAWAY!)

Welcome to the Fireblood tour! I am honored to be a part of this tour, as Trisha Wolfe is one of my favorite authors. Her upcoming novel, Fireblood, was one of my most anticipated fantasy novels of 2013! In this post, I interview Trisha, and you could win this book! I hope you all enjoy my blog tour post :)

Meet Trisha Wolfe!

Alyssa: Hi, Trisha! Thank you so much for joining today on my blog!

Trisha: Yay! Thanks for having me, Alyssa. I’m so happy to be here at your awesome blog, on this wonderful tour.

Alyssa: Awww, you are the sweetest! I am honored. So, Trisha. Describe Fireblood in fourteen words. GO!

Trisha: Futuristic Camelot. Bad knights. Evil kings. One hot, swoony knight…and a fierce princess. 

Alyssa:  Futuristic Camelot would have sold me from the start, if I hadn't already read this book! What interested you in high fantasy?

Trisha: Growing up, I was a true fantasy nerd. Dungeons and Dragons, Forgotten Realms, Ravenloft…and the list goes on. I watched it all, read it all, and I always knew I’d one day try to write it all. 

Alyssa: O_O lol

Is there anything about your book that you would change?

Trisha: Ha! Not sure if I can answer this without getting in trouble…but yes. I would probably change the writing. Most editors don’t like my rule breaking style, and I don’t blame them. But trying to force my writing to be grammatically correct, well, it just doesn't flow well. So I’d probably change up a lot of the sentences that I feel are stilted. 

Alyssa: What is something that you must have when writing? 

Trisha: Coffee. And chocolate. But overall, coffee. 

Alyssa: Of course, of course. What type of books do you like to read? What are you currently reading?

Trisha: Just about everything. I tend to read a lot in one genre until I get a bit burned out feeling, then I switch it up. I’m currently reading…nothing. Strange, right? But sometimes I have to have a reading break, just to let me brain rest. 

Alyssa: That makes complete sense! You need to recharge before you dive in. What’s your favorite distraction when writing under deadline?

Trisha: Shopping. I get sucked into Internet shopping lol

Alyssa: IT IS THE BEST. Well, until your credit card number gets stolen or something. But anyway. What’s the largest amount of words you've ever written for the final version of one of your books?

Trisha: 105,000…and it was for FIREBLOOD. FB is the longest book I've written to date. 

Alyssa: That is awesome! So many words. What’s one song that embodies Fireblood?

Trisha: That’s a tough one…just because FB, even though it’s set in the future, has a very old world feel. I listened to Titanium a lot while driving and thinking of scenes. So I guess that one kept me going with the strong girl aspect.

Alyssa: That's a good point. I could feel the old world aspect clearly, but you never let us forget that this book is futuristic. What are you currently working on - something new? Anything contracted? 

Trisha: I’m currently finishing up OF DARKNESS AND CROWNS, the sequel in The Goddess Wars series. And then will begin writing an untitled book, which will be the second book in The Living Heartwood series, my New Adult Contemp series. 

Alyssa: WOOT! I cannot wait to read ODAC! Thank you for stopping by today, Trisha!

About the Book:

Fireblood by Trisha Wolfe
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Publication Date: December 17, 2013

Official Summary:

To save a kingdom, Zara must choose between a prince who could be the answer and a rising rebellion that threatens to take control.

When Zara Dane is chosen to marry Prince Sebastian Hart, son of the man who ordered her father’s capture, Zara knows she must fight to save everything she loves from ruin. 

Being betrothed to the prince means a life trapped behind the towering stone walls of the Camelot-forged realm. Under the watchful eye of the prince's first knight, Sir Devlan Capra, changing her future becomes difficult. 

When an unlikely rebel reveals the truth about the deadly secrets that fuel King Hart’s twisted world, Zara’s path to rescue her father becomes clouded by deception. The Rebels clear her path by forcing Zara’s hand with an ultimatum: sway Prince Sebastian to join the Rebels, convincing him of his father’s evil nature, or they will take him out. 

But Zara is uncertain about a future under the Rebels’ command and where the prince’s heart truly lies. She must decide who to trust, what to believe, and what she’s truly fighting for before the king destroys all of Karm, including her heart.
