Crossroads Tour Finale: Judith Graves (Contest!)

*sniff* This is…the last crossroads interview… 🙁

BUT…today the Crossroads bring you the lady who started it all…JUDITH GRAVES! Yes, she is the master mind of the Crossroads, of course, and I’m happy to be apart of her awesome idea.
Ms. Graves here has written Under My Skin…and that, my friends, is about…
*drum roll*

All her parents wanted was for Eryn to live a normal life…

Redgrave, Alberta had its share of monsters before Eryn moved to town. Mauled pets, missing children. The Delacroix family is taking the blame, but Eryn knows the truth. Something stalks the night. Wade, the police chief’s son and Redgrave High’s resident hottie, warns her the Delacroix are dangerous. But then so is Eryn-in fact, she’s lethal. But she can’t help falling for one of the Delacroix boys, dark, brooding-human Alec. And then her world falls apart.

A normal life? Now that’s the real fairytale.- taken from her website, here.

Cool, right?

The Interview:

1.- You write about a town that has a lot of…creepy things! Do you ever wish you lived in a town filled with vamps, weres, and the oh my! ?

You mean I don’t? Now that’s disappointing…lol…

2.- I hate to ask…would you want to date a werewolf of a vampire?

In the Skinned series werewolves are very nasty creatures – soulless, mindless beasts – not unlike some guys I dated back in the day. However, if you’re talking lycan/wolven-ish shapeshifters, then I’d be much wiser now and choose one of those to date over a cold-blooded, scary-assed un-dead vampire.

3.- If you could dress up as anything you wanted for Halloween, what would it be?

The Bride of Frankenstein, or Marge Simpson, or better yet – Marge Simpson as the Bride of Franky. Why? The updos of course! Hold on a minute, has anyone seen Marge and The Bride in a room together at the same time? Hmm…..

4.- Oh no! You’re at a Hallows Eve Party and at 12am you actually become what you were dressed up as! Who/what would you be dressed up as?

Like that great episode of Buffy. Nice. Well, this year I’m going as the WWII propaganda machine that was Rosie the Riveter, so I’d likely be going around saying “We can do it!” and flexing my wimpy biceps. 😉

5.- What’s next in your writing career?

I’m working on several projects, Second Skin, the next book in the Skinned series, where darkness settles over Eryn like a second skin…as well as a contemporary YA novel that I’ve been picking away at.

So, remember back when I interviewed Shannon Delany…my first interviewee? Author of the awesome book, 13 to Life? Well, now you have a chance to WIN 13 to Life! In the comments below, tell me the best costume you’ve ever worn, the best costume you’ve witnessed, or the best costume idea you have and you’ll be entered to win it (randomly)! (You have until Nov. 6th!)

Add your email, please!



There will be a chat with the authors from the tour over at Page Turner’s Blog today and tomorrow! Check it out!

Best costume I ever wore would have to be when I went as Sailor Mercury from Sailor Moon. Twice. Once when I was 3 and again when I was about 8. Bet you didn't see that coming, did ya? lol.

haha the best costume that I had ever witnessed was My 7th grade teacher dressed up as Pippi Long Stockings … did I mention my 7th grade teacher was a guy?? haha

Loved the Crossroads tour!!

My Bloody Fairy Tale


Best costume I ever saw was a cell phone with the ring tone and everything. Still have the costume, it's for kids. It was a hand be down. No one has ever wanted to wear it. I have no idea why. It's a full body costume and it's hysterical when you ring the button.

Already have the book

My pregnant mother dressed up like a nun one year with her husband dressed as a priest. Maybe not the most politically correct costume but it was kinda funny.

The best costume I ever made was my bro's clown costume. I colored his hair red and did his face- he looked creepy. It was awesome.
