INK 2 Giveaway and Character Interview

Today I have the pleasure of hosting a giveaway for Ink 2! I don't want to give anyone a heart attack here, so get the defibrillators charged and nearby, ladies, because I will also be interviewing the one and only Slade! Yeah, that's right, I get to sit down and get cozy with that pierced lipped, bat toting, center stage make-me-wanna-scream bad boy from down the beach hottie, and I'm sharing all the gory details with YOU! 


For those of you who have read the first book, buckle up. You have no idea what you are getting into. For those of you who have not read Ink 1, you have NO idea what you are getting into. Which is why I feel it is my duty to inform you with a little synopsis I stole borrowed from Goodreads. Stick around, and don't forget to fill out the Rafflecopter for a chance to win INK 2!!


Hope is now a witch. She never realized becoming one meant dealing with evil. She soon is learning that being a witch comes with a lot of bad consequences. She is now a member of a dark circle that is bent on destruction. Evil is all around, begging her to join. She wants to be with Slade, but the darkness is a lot for a girl like Hope to handle.
She soon learns there is a side of Slade and magic that she wishes she never knew existed.
Soon she is battling a coven, and her own personal life.
Should she stay true to the girl she always was or take a chance with the greatest guy she ever met?
This new life could turn her into something evil; she has to decide if it is worth it.

Hold onto your seats, ladies, the party is about to begin! 

Checks watch. I am sitting in a trailer at a small table wedged into one corner, waiting patiently. It's late, and the concert out back is starting to wind down. My knee is bobbing under the table, my nerves shot...The doors opens, and there he is. Slade's eyes immediately fall on me and suddenly I feel like a bug under a microscope. He doesn't say anything as he sits down across from me, just stares, so I start.

Twisting Minds...: *clears throat and clicks on old timey recorder* So, today I want to welcome Slade Andrews. Welcome, Slade, and thank you for joining us today! 

Slade: Sup. 

Twisting Minds...: So, Slade. How long have you been a singer? 

*I can't help staring. Slade looks positively edible in a pair of dark jeans, a black band t-shirt that showcases lean muscles and artful tatts. Running his tongue across his lip ring, he lifts his aviators from the top of his head, places them on the table between us and runs his fingers through his hair. I'm wondering, as an adoring fan and all, if I could swipe them when he's not looking, but I decide against it. I bounce my knee a little more forcefully. He's taking forever to answer.*
Slade: I was born a singer, it's in my soul. That's like asking someone how long they been human. You just are what you are. *leans back and stares intently*

Twisting Minds...: *shifts nervously* Of course, of course. Very cool. Uh, next question. Do you consider yourself a good witch or a bad witch?

Slade: *perks up* I don't know, which would you prefer?
Twisting Minds...: Oh God oh God oh God! *twirls hair and smiles, resisting the urge to tell him how much I like bad ones* 

We're not talking about my preferences. I think the viewers would like to hear your answer much more than mine. 

Slade: *smirks* I don't know. I guess it all depends on the day. And how bad someone pisses me off.

Twisting Minds...: Wow, I feel sorry for that person already. So, is Hope your first? Girlfriend that is. I'm mean, we all know that you've dated before, like, a lot. Not that she couldn't have been your first! *flushes* Sorry, I suffer from foot in mouth disease. 

Slade: Hope is the first girl I have ever had feelings for. I have had many firsts, time and time again, believe me.  *appears to relax at the mention of Hope*

Twisting Minds...: So, is she like, The One? *crosses fingers he booted her ages ago*

Slade: *He shoots me a pathetic grin* I don't believe in fairy tales. Life is not perfect. If it was, I wouldn't have had to sell my soul to the darkside, now would I? *He leans back in his chair* But to answer your question, she's the one I currently can't get enough of. 

Twisting Minds...:   So that means I'm still in the running. *I wink at him, brazenly flirting, but who cares! This is Slade Andrews, a freaking rock star witch. Besides, he doesn't look like he's going anywhere any time soon, and I'm sure Hope won't mind a little innocent flirting, right? Right?*

So, Slade, describe your perfect date.

Slade: *winks back* A beautiful girl, some screaming metal vibrating our bones, me belting out the lyrics to some sappy metal love song and later serenading you right out of your cute little outfit and into my bed. 
Twisting Minds...: *My mouth goes dry. Did he just suggest what I think he did? I venture to find out* You mean Hope, right? You would serenade Hope into your bed? 

Slade:  *smirks* Of course, get your mind out the gutter.

Twisting Minds...: *splutters* Hey, you said it, not me. *I dismiss his obvious arrogance with a wave of my hand. Although, now...I sigh, completely jealous. Hope's a lucky girl* Moving on. What's the strangest/craziest thing that has ever happened to you during a performance? 

Slade: *wraps the table with his knuckles thinking hard* I had my clothes nearly torn off by a bunch of crazed fans, and once I was down to just my boxer briefs *winks at Twisted Minds* a fist fight ensued and I was splattered with the blood of the weaker chick in the fight. Hot right?

Twisting minds...: *fights from grimacing* Uh, totally. I can definitely see the appeal. *Suddenly, the trailer feels a little confining. No room to run* Hey, what do you say we take this to the roof?

*Standing, Slade motions for me to go first. The view from the roof is amazing.* 

Tell us something about yourself that we didn't learn in Ink. 

Slade: *Slade stares off taking in the view* Between me and you, I actually give a shit about what people think of me more than anyone thinks. And I wish I wasn't the person I had to become, things would be a lot easier.... 

Twisting Minds...:  Well, now that everyone knows the lion has a heart, I'm sure they will. *I want to touch his hand, reassure him, but I get the feeling if I do, he'll take off and the interview will be over.* I hear that Hope is going off to college this fall. How do you feel about that? Will you be going with her?

Slade: I have my own life, my own things to deal with. I wish her the best and we will see what is to come, Hope wants things out of life that aren't in the cards for me, sometimes life is one mess after another, I take it day by day. 

Twisting Minds...: Well, I think I speak for all of us when I said, we wish you both the best. Just a few more questions and I will send you on your way. 

Favorite food?  I like anything Italian.

First girlfriend? *grins* Probably kindergarten, I was a hot commodity straight out of the womb.

Most treasured memory? The first time my dad pulled out his guitar and I heard him sing. I knew that was what I wanted to be like. And if I could only be as half as good I would do great things in life.

Best friend? I'll always be my best friend, I've learned people are quick to turn on you. But Kidd will always be like a brother to me, he puts up with my shit and tries to talk sense into me when I am being a huge asshole, which is like all the time he says.

Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla *plays with lip ring*

Boxers or briefs? I wear boxer briefs on stage, but when I'm not I go commando... *wink*

Cool and sweet, or hot and spicy? Hot and spicy hands down.

What do you love most about Hope? That she doesn't realize just how great she is and how stubborn she is when it comes to fighting for what she wants.

Twisting Minds...: Whew, done! Thank you so much for joining us today, Slade. I, along with all your swooning, adoring fans out there can't wait to learn more about you in the future. Do you have any parting words for your fans?

Slade: Your welcome, and thanks for the support, I work hard to be admired by each and every one of you.
