Guest Author & A Giveaway: Shiloh Walker

Today, we have Shiloh Walker visiting with us! She’s got this awesome Romantic Suspense trilogy coming out that is amazing and I’ve been talking it up forever. You don’t want to miss it. And it should be telling I love it considering I don’t even really read RS. Anyway, Shiloh is a lot of fun. I got to meet her at RT10 in Columbus, Ohio. Actually, she even let me crash with her, which was super nice, because otherwise I might’ve been sleeping in my car. Or on the street. (Ok so not really but… you know. It was still amazingly kind and generous of her to offer.) I’ve read a number of her books, and I could gush more, but really what you guys want to hear is what Shiloh has to say.

FAQ YOU

Authors get asked questions for blogs all the time.

What do you like to read? (answer…a lot of stuff, mainly romance and urban fantasy, but I read some thrillers, traditional fantasy and science fiction)

How did you get started writing? (answer…I’ve always written, it seems.  The first story I remember was a murder-mystery type thing for a YOUNG AUTHORS contest in 4th grade)

What inspires you? (answer…Simple as it seems…life.  For a writer, I think maybe everything is a story.  Sitting at a stoplight, watching a storm, hearing a news clop)

Where do you get your inspiration? (answer…Life.  Just life.)

What’s your favorite color/food/music? (answer…Blue or green, or sometimes red/Strawberries and tomatoes and steak, although I love Mexican, too/hmmm, country, contemporary Christian, some 80s rock)

What’s your latest book/next project? (Hunter’s Fall and I’m working on a couple of things)

What’s your favorite book/series/characters?  (answer…that’s always a hard one and it sometimes varies, but generally, I love JD Robb/Nora Roberts, Ilona Andrews, Jeaniene Frost, Susan Elizabeth Phillips and always, always, always at the top of my list–SL Viehl/Lynn Viehl)

Yep, lots of questions. But I’ve done that.  So I’m gonna turn the tables around.  I want to ask readers the questions. 

So, pick a question, any question…

What do YOU like to read? (Paranormal romance, romantic suspense & urban fantasy for me)

What is the latest series you’ve read and just gone crazy over?  (I can tell you that one series I’m loving is the October Daye series by Seanan MacGuire)

What is YOUR favorite series/character/book? (Cherijo & Duncan from SL Viehl’s Stardoc, Eve & Roark from JD Robb’s In Death)

Shiloh Walker

Lots of questions right? It seems that I get the inquisitive guests. 😉 As you all know, the guest author & a giveaway means well… a giveaway! So comment – and remember to check back on the blog as the winner will be posted on Saturday (barring unforeseen/uncontrollable events.) And… I couldn’t resist. You’ll notice the book covers don’t have much to do with what Shiloh was saying – but they’re her upcoming trilogy. I want to keep it fresh in your minds. 😀 (The third book doesn’t have a cover yet… so just remember to look for If You Know Her. I’m sure it’ll look great too.)

*ETA: I forgot to mention – Shiloh (as she said in the comments) will be giving away swag (“stuff we all get”) that she got at the Reader & Author Giveaway – aka Lori Foster and Duffy Brown’s event. It’ll be a surprise what she throws in. 😉

    I love Shiloh’s work. She has an honesty that shines through her characters that I am drawn to. I too am a fan Nora Roberts/JD Robb as well as so many other wonderful authors. I have to agree that urban and paranormal are my favorites. If I want reality I’ll read a newspaper. ~j

    hi Shiloh,
    I’m taking the plunge and answering all 3 questions 🙂

    I love reading paranormal fiction &romance, historical romance, urban fantasy, and young-adult books the most. Especially the post-apocalyptic and dystopic YA books cuz I enjoy the intensity:)

    There are actually 2 series that I’m drooling mad over lately:
    — Richelle Mead’s Georgina Kincaid series, the final book #6, Succubus Revealed, comes out in August and I’m dying to read it! 😀
    — Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series is my other addiction. Not only are the covers awesome but the plots roCK! I cant get enough lol

    When it comes to individual characters, the Kincaid siblings from Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changling series are favorites, and so is Illium the angel with blue wings from her Guild Hunter series.

    I generally dont read romantic suspense but if Lime says it kicks ass, I’m in! lol So I’m happily looking forward to reading ur new series:D

    I am also a big Eve and Roarke fan! Depending on my mood, I read romantic fantasy, fantasy, SF and UF. A lot of times it depends on the author too. Looking forward to this!

    Oh I love reading anything and everything under the sun really: history, romance, true-crime, mystery…the list really could go on. I love to have the variety when I read. So say I read romance next would probably be mystery or history next. Just to jump to another whole different arena!

    Hi Shiloh! Hi Lime! I got a shelf dedicated to Shiloh’s books! I so wished I could go to the conferences one day! I’m excited about the new Hunter and too the RS!!! I haven’t seen alot of RS lately but wouldn’t miss these, so glad you going to this genre again and writing some! I love so many genres in romance and too gotten into historical mysteries (reading the Deanna Raybourn Lady Julia right now and so enjoy them! Even these have their romances within them. Too I recently tried Steampunk, Mari Fee’s BLUEBEARD’S MACHINE (and too learned what Bluebeard was, had no idea) and it was way neat to read! So I get into more authors and series while I wait for others I enjoy reading to come out!
