Happy Tuesday! First off, I'd like to announce the winner of the drawing for Helen Scott Taylor's Latest, The Phoenix Charm. It goes to Jackie (myjaxons). Congrats, Jackie! Email me at angie @ angie fox.com and we'll get that right out to you.
And on to the blog... You know, as an author, I obviously write a lot. And I read a lot (because that's just plain fun). But I also have this obsession with totally-useless fun quizzes. They just tickle me for some reason.
So for the release of A Tale of Two Demon Slayers, my friend Shawntelle and I came up with the What Supernatural Pet is Right for You? quiz
It came about because in the book, Lizzie's talking dog, Pirate finds a dragon egg. This was totally unplanned, by the way. These things just sort of happen as I write. Anyhow, the egg hatches and Pirate decides he has a pet. I mean, how fun for a pet - to own a pet. Lizzie is not happy about that. She has enough going on and doesn't think her dog needs to own a dragon.
So she tells Pirate to find a new home for Flappy (Pirate named him, not Lizzie). So Lizzie is battling evil people and losing track of what Pirate is doing. He keeps promising to find a new home for Flappy, but instead Pirate is hiding the dragon, and loving the dragon and teaching him tricks. Every time Lizzie realizes the dragon is still there, it's gotten bigger and bigger and, well, it's just one more thing she can't quite control.
And the whole time I'm writing the book, I'm thinking, "Holy heck, how am I going to get rid of this dragon?" In short, I don't. So in honor of Flappy the dragon, we present the Supernatural Pet quiz. If you want to take it and post your supernatural pet below, I'll give one lucky winner a shiny new copy of A Tale of Two Demon Slayers. Contest closes next Tuesday. Good luck!
