Author Interview+ Giveaway: Light Tamer by Devyn Dawson

Hello guys... I am honored today to welcome Devyn Dawson, author of Light Tamer... not only she agreed to be interviewed but she'd also offered 2 copies of her book.. How cool is that?

Read on and possibly win her book..:)

Blurb about the book:

Light Tamer
The Blurb

Jessie's moved from New York to North Carolina one week after school lets out for summer break. Being a teen in a retirement area, is one more thing to add to her 'this sucks' list. It's bad enough to have to move, but even worse her alcoholic father left them as he went on a quest to be an artist in Greece.

Things begin to look up when she is reintroduced to Caleb, the dorky boy that saved her life one summer at the beach. Caleb is no longer scrawny and nerdy, he is now tall, dark and handsome. Caleb is a Light Tamer. Now, Jessie and Caleb must learn how to control the light...before they lose each other forever.

Jessie and Amber become fast friends. Amber is a no frills girl, her snarky comments and sassy attitude will raise a few eyebrows and have you laughing out loud. Amber is rough around the edges, a light tamer with only two years left to find the one she is bound to. Her father's surfing accident left her dad paralyzed and her brother dead.

This paranormal romance will keep you on the edge of your seat with humor, romance, and determination. Fall head over heels for Caleb and Jessie

One/Two word/s that describe your book?

One sentence: Why we should read your book?
 It is rumored that your eyes will bleed and your heart will break if you never experience The Light Tamer.

Why was it titled "Light Tamer"? 
The characters have to learn how to harness the light that they have absorbed.

If you would become one of the characters of your book, who would it be?
I think I’d like to be Jessie - she has an interesting life and faces each obstacle with her heels dug in and head held high.

If this would turn into a movie, who would be the main cast?
 Debby Ryan would be Jessie, Jake Austin would be Caleb, Ariel Winter as Amber 

Debby Ryan
Jake Austin
Ariel WInter

Music or Book?
Book. I love for words to paint a symphony of emotions.

Love or Life?
 Love. Life is nothing if you have never loved.

Reality or Fantasy? 
Fantasy. I’ve experienced reality, I’m so ready to live a fantasy.

If I can’t sleep, I would… meditate and then read.

The craziest thing I did - I’m not sure this is the craziest thing, but it is very strange. One of my friends was very obsessed with this guy (we were teenagers). She wanted to prove to him how much she liked him, so she bought rolls of giant paper and we wrote lyrics to songs on them. In middle of the night we went to his house and attached every song to his house, car and driveway. I’ve never been that obsessed with anyone before.

My greatest dream is to know that my children will be happy and successful adults.
The place I’d like to go someday is Paris France.
One thing people don’t know about me is I suffer from a marshmallow deficiency…okay, maybe it isn’t a real medical problem; but I love all things marshmallow.

I wish I had written Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Where could readers go to know more about you and your books?
It is available in paperback and as an e-book. If you want a signed copy of the book, you can purchase it on my website. If not, you can purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and your favorite bookstore. www.devyndawson.com

Is there anything else you'd like to say?
Thank you so much for having me. I’m so thankful for everyone that purchases my books. I love to hear from readers that tell me how they couldn’t put the book down. I get a little giddy. The Light Tamer isn’t a long book; it is one of those books that you can read in one sitting during a nice long rainstorm. It brings the reader back to their first kiss, their first love and how important family is. Yes, the characters fall for each other fast, but teens fall fast and it is a paranormal romance… not a wait and yearn story. The story isn’t all lovey dovey, it has a lot of humor and has a smart-butt side kick.

I’m having a blog hop starting June 18, 2012 and will be giving away a $50.00 gift card to Amazon…stop by my website for more information.

About Devyn:

I live in New Bern, NC - home to a very famous author...nope, not me. He writes for adult women, I write for young adult teens.

All about me..... that story isn't nearly as interesting as the stories I write. The young adult genre has my heart...does that prove I never grew up? I love everything paranormal in the YA spectrum. There are so many fabulous authors that have created amazing worlds for teens to read about. More adults should check it out, they might find themselves sitting up past 10 to read the next chapter. Just sayin'

If you see a leprechaun don't stare him in the eye - that was a piece of advice I got from my brother when I was a kid! I'm sharing that secret with you.
