Interview with M. Leighton + Giveaway

Hello, everyone! Today we have an interview with Miss M. Leighton, the author of For the Love of a Vampire! We will ask her a few question, and then we will move on to the giveaway. Miss Leighton has kindly provided us with an ebook copy of her book. Shall we begin?

What are your thoughts on the cover?
I wanted the cover to be simple yet convey the intensity of the relationship between Bo and Ridley.  I didn’t realize at the time, but that is an enormous task!  LOL

What makes For the Love of a Vampire special?
These days, anything with a male vampire gets compared to Twilight.  While my book shares the basic vampire-boy-meets-human-girl scenario, that is where the similarities end.  My vampires are darker with much different abilities/weaknesses and Bo is a tortured soul with a clouded past.  Oh yeah, and he has a death wish that complicates his life and threatens Ridley’s love.

Can you tell us more about Ridley?
Ridley is a cheerleader and reformed "popular" girl.  She has suffered tremendous loss and her eyes were opened to real life at great personal cost.  Her unhappy home life is something she is singularly focused on escaping.  Ridley is a girl with a plan.  Until she meets Bo.

What do you think is your biggest accomplishment?
I’ve heard so, so, so many people talk of writing a book, and yet not one of the people I’ve heard talk about it have actually done it.  I think writing an entire novel, sitting down and typing out thousands upon thousands of words, is one of my greatest accomplishments.  Being able to sell it is another.  I’m blessed in ways I never thought possible.

What is your biggest fear?
Writing junk.  Absolute crap.  One of my deepest desires is for every book I write to be better than the last.  That generates a fear that I will fail.  But I try.  I always try-- very hard-- to put out better work.  To write better, think better, weave better, to just do and be…better.

What is the longest book you’ve read? Did you like it?
I’m not certain of exact length, but I would guess either The Thornbirds or Twilight. They are both fairly long books, I think.  I loved them both!  I TRIED to read War and Peace.  Does that count?

What are three things that you never leave home without?
My purse, my phone and my underwear:D

What is your favorite drink?
If we’re talking soda, it’s a toss-up between Coke and Dr. Pepper.  If we’re talking “adult beverage” *snickers* it would be a chocolate martini.  They are TO. DIE. FOR.

If you could have dinner with any of your characters, who would it be? What restaurant would you take her/him to?
I’d probably want to take Jersey.  I couldn’t take one of the guys because I’m married and that would SO not be a good idea.  LOL  So I’d settle for lots of fun and laughter with Jersey from the Madly series.  That girl!  You just never know what she’s gonna say or do.  I’d take her to someplace like Senior Frogs, wind her up, let her go and sit back to watch the show!

Any parting word for our readers?
I spent the better part of two decades working jobs I hated.  I remember reading somewhere that you should find a way to make a living doing what you love. I didn’t really understand how I could do that because I didn’t really have a “love” yet.  And then I wrote my first book.  I had dreamed for years of having a job that I loved, or even liked, although I had no idea what that job would be.  But I found it.  Or it found me.  I’m not sure which.  The moral of this story is that you should never give up hope. Dreams can become reality in the strangest places at the strangest times and, when they do, they will ROCK YOUR WORLD!
