Interview and Giveaway with Jillian Eaton, Author of Pitch (Death Day)

This week on the Writer's Block we have the lovely Jillian Eaton. Awesome vampire writer, fantasies stuck in historical England, seriously addicted to coffee and chocolate, and anti-reality singing competitions. Take a minute to peek at some of these crazy answers before hitting up the giveaway (yeah...I know you're looking for that!) :)

What was your favorite book as a kid? Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. I would read it, cry. Read it, cry. Read it, cry. It was a vicious circle.

Tell us your favorite quote. "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." - Anton Chekhov

What is your favorite genre to read and what makes it so awesome? Historical romance is always my fallback, but young-adult, paranormal, science fiction... I'll read anything.

If the Earth suddenly became uninhabital, would you rather live under the sea or in space? Awesome question. Definitely under the sea. I'm imagining something out of The Little Mermaid or Atlantis. Atlantis would be cool.

If you could live in any time period other than the present, which would you choose and why? Regency England, but only if I was a wealthy heiress and I could marry a dashing Duke.

What do you do when you experience that lovely problem called writer's block? Either start another project entirely, or go eat chocolate. Okay, so I just eat chocolate. A lot.

When you were little, what did you think you'd be when you grew up? A veterinarian.

What is the craziest dream you've ever had? Probably the dream that inspired the After in After Ever. It was pretty scary/freaky/how the HELL did my brain come up with this?

What food/drink would absolutely devastate you if they stopped production on? Extra buttered popcorn at the movie theaters. I am seriously addicted.

If you could step into the shoes of any fictional character for one day, who would it be and why? Hermione Granger because a) she's a witch and b) she is awesome.

Do you like to listen to music when you read or write? Absolutely not, and I fail to understand how other writers do it!

Did you do anything special to celebrate your first book release? The fiancee took me out to Applebees. I chattered on, and on (and on on on) about my book. We haven't been back since.

Which is your favorite fairytale? Cinderella.

Which do you prefer: ebook, hardback or paperback? I swore I would never switch to a kindle, but I did and now I am in love. So ebook.

This or That
Underworld or Twilight
Original or Remake
Sweet or Salty
Drama or Comedy
Fantasy or Romance
Spring or Autumn
Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston
Walter Mathau or Jack Lemmon
Dirty Dancing or Footloose
American Idol or X-Factor or The Voice: none of the above
Movie Theatre or Loveseat
Tea or Coffee
Rain or Sunshine
Skiing or Surfing
Tree house or Man Cave

Choose a challenge...if you dare!
Write a sentence using all these words: wolfpack, mirror, pop rocks, cuckoo clock, Edward Cullen, hairspray: Edward Cullen glanced at the cuckoo clock above his dresser mirror and finally put down the hairspray as he muttered "pop rocks" under his breath, for once again he had taken too long on his hair and was going to be late meeting the wolfpack. ROFLMAO! That's pretty good!

Very nice interview! I have to agree with the whole singing competition thing. I've never watched American Idol, and the only reason I watched the last season of The Voice was because Tony Lucca was going to be on it. LOL That's not to say I don't like any reality TV. I do watch America's Next Top Model and So You Think You Can Dance. :D

Thank you for the chance to win Pitch!
