Hi, everyone. I’m so excited to welcome author, Denise Daisy. She’s allowing me to host a HUGE giveaway!!! She’s giving away one of each of her books. Leave a comment below to be entered for a chance to win a free Kindle e-book.
Before we get started with the interview, let’s take a look at the blurb for one of Denise’s novels, Thirteen for dinner:
Averie is just trying to hold her life together and make enough money to stay afloat while waiting for her mother to return from caring for her grandmother. What started out as an attempt to make rent, by working as an extra on the catering staff at the historic Faulkner mansion quickly turned into subbing as the 14th dinner guest which inadvertently turned into being the 13th guest smack in the center of a room with sordid and macabre history. Eerie how the harder you try to change fate, the more often you’re walking right into it…
Until this day Averie has never set foot on the Faulkner, estate let alone step into the old historical mansion. The reason being, it was the site of a massacre in the late 1800s. Legend goes that Mr. Faulkner found out about an affair between his daughter and a slave on his plantation and that the family and dinner guests hung the slave right out in the front yard and went back to their festivities. Unbeknownst to the family, Faulkner’s daughter, driven to despair over her lover, hung herself in the cupola of the mansion. Before the family could discover the tragedy, the brothers of the hanged slave came for vengeance and massacred the entire dinner party.
Tonight’s dinner party, originally an investment pitch to eradicate the house’s history by converting to a boarding school, should have a different outcome. However, Averie finds that their host has far more in store for his guests. In the ensuing chaos, Averie and another (insanely handsome) guest, Quillan, are transported back in time to one month before the massacre.
In just a few short weeks, Averie must find the courage to do more than just try to survive. Together, Averie and Quillan must uncover the truth about the Faulkner family and try and stop the murders. Ultimately, there is more hanging in the balance than anyone ever knew. Can Averie put her fears aside long enough to change the past and find life in the place she fears the most?

Tricia: Of all your characters, which one is your favorite? Why?
Tricia: What was the most challenging aspect of writing your book?
Denise: Deciding whether to go with an agent, publisher or do it myself. I’ve done both and I have to say I prefer handling them on my own. They books I handle myself actually do better than the one with the publisher and it’s a great story. I just think our books are like our children and we know their personalities and know how to handle them better than anyone else.
