Tour & Giveaway: One Deadly Sin by Annie Solomon...

April 26, 2009
It's tour time! Today's tour is for Annie Solomon's new book, One Deadly Sin...

About the author:
A native New Yorker, RITA-winning author Annie Solomon has been dreaming up stories since she was ten. After a twelve-year career in advertising, where she rose to Vice President and Head Writer at a mid-size agency, she abandoned the air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps of her professional life for her first love—romance. An avid knitter, she now lives in Nashville with her husband and daughter. Find Annie online at her website.

Now Annie, she's a total sweetheart. I asked if she would answer some questions for me, and she did!! Here's my Proust-lite interview with Annie:
  1. What is your idea of earthly happiness? A beach and an umbrella chair.
  2. What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? God, I could go on and on, I can think of so many. But time is short and so are attention spans, so for purposes of this, let’s say… making decisions. I’d rather do almost anything else than choose between two things.
  3. Who is/are your favorite heroine(s) in fiction? Sad to say I don’t read much anymore. But here are a few from past reads that have stayed with me:
    Claire Randall in Outlander, because she’s smart.
    Maddy Timms in Flowers From the Storm, because she’s brave enough to trust her own judgment.
    Harriet, in Harriet the Spy because she’s…well, she’s Harriet.
  4. Who is/are your favorite heroine(s) in real life? Florence Nightingale. She defied her family and convention and changed the world.
  5. What sound do you love? Celtic instrumental music. Harp, flute, strings.
  6. What sound do you hate? The vacuum cleaner. I hate, hate, hate, to clean. It’s probably my second item under the lowest depths of misery.
  7. The quality you admire most in a man? The ability to make me laugh at myself.
  8. The quality you admire most in a woman? Kindness.
  9. If not a writer, you would be a saleswoman at Macy’s. I did that once years ago and it was the best job I ever had . I got to dress up, meet people, be surrounded by pretty things, and get a discount. Now you know how shallow I am!
  10. What is your favorite swear word? Fuck. Fuck you. Fuck this. Fuck a duck. It’s very versatile.
Gosh, Annie, I was laughing out loud while reading your answers!!  =)

About the book:
COMING HOME IS MURDER...

Revenge. Edie Swann has hungered for it since she fled her hometown as a little girl. Now she's returned, ready for payback. Armed with a list of names, she leaves each one a chilling sign that they have blood on their hands. Her father's blood. What happens next turns her own blood cold: one by one, the men she's targeted start dying.

Sheriff Holt Drennen knows Edie is hiding something. She has a haunted look in her eyes and a defiant spirit, yet he can't believe she's a murderer. As the body count rises and all evidence points to Edie, Holt is torn between the town he's sworn to protect and the woman he's come to desire. But nothing is what it seems. Long buried secrets begin to surface, and a killer won't be satisfied until the sins of the past are paid in full--this time with Edie's blood.

Ok, Annie's a bad influence. I've been muttering "fuck a duck" under my breath while playing Catan, if the other players make a move I don't like... *sigh*

On another note, I read Annie's Blackout yesterday. Like, swallowed it down whole & everything. Good book. Now I have to hunt down her other ones!! What does this mean? I guess she's going on my list of fav authors. Who'd've thunk? Me, with a "romance" author on my list... *grin*

Well, I thought I posted but looks like I didn't!

I loved reading your interview. Sounds like you have a great sense of humour. Not the slapstick kind but the *yah, I so relate to that* kind of humour. I haven't read you before so it will be interesting to see how your personality impact your writing.
