Interview w/ Yasmine Galenorn--All kinds of paranormal goodness, mac&cheese and camouflaged gnomes! + giveaway

Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they could have imagined. Now, in a final push, Myst returns with a vengeance to bring the Golden Wood forever under the rule of the Indigo Court.

Newly crowned Fae Queens Cicely and Rhiannon have embraced their destinies and claimed their thrones. But Myst is rising once more, and now, at the helm of her armies, she begins her final assault on the Golden Wood. As Fae, vampires, and magic-born alike fall under the tide of blood, Cicely and her friends must discover a way to destroy the spidery queen before they—and their people—face total annihilation.

Morning Yasmine! Welcome to herding cats! It's so nice to have ya here and oh I can't wait to hear a little about Night's EndAlright, so, if you only had 10 seconds to hook someone and have them all antsy to grab it up what would you tell them?
Vampiric Fae. Hedonistic vampires. Wounded heroes. A young woman who must take the crown of Fae to save her people against the evil snow queen.

Ahhh that sounds amazing! Can you tell us 3 fun/dark/sexy behind the scenes facts about Night's End
  • While Lannan likes to be the ‘master’ with his toys, Regina tops him when they’re together.
  • Sometimes when they go out together in the Court of Snow and Ice, Cicely rides on Grieve’s arm, in owl form, like a falcon would.
  • Ulean has been the Wind Elemental for Fae Queens far longer than before Lainule and Cicely.
Ooo good for Regina! lol Did you have a favorite quote/scene moment that just...did it for you?
Yeah but those would involve spoilers! Another favorite scene…right before they go into one of the final battles against Myst and her armies of Shadow Hunters. This is when they realize, this could be their last stand…this could be the last chance they have.
And then it hit me. This might be it—anything could happen through the night, for good or ill. We might not all come through tonight, and tomorrow either Myst would stand triumphant, or we would have destroyed her heartstone. Because if she won this battle, chances were she’d  win the war.  By the looks on the others’ faces, they knew this, too. We stood, staring at one another in silence for the better part of a minute. And then, slowly, Rhiannon reached out and took Chatter’s hand. He took Peyton’s, then Ysandra, Luna, Lannan, Kaylin, Grieve, and I joined in.

As I took Rhia’s hand, completing the circle, we stood in silence. I wasn’t sure who started it, but a line of energy began to snake through our fingers, linking us strong, linking our hopes, our goals, our fears, and our prayers. As the energy increased, swishing through us like a whirling snake, Ulean joined in, and for a brief moment, we were one—linked by a common goal, linked by our pasts, linked by our hopes for the future. With a swift whoosh, the energy spiraled up into a cone, and I realized I was holding the tether. I focused it on Myst—on driving the force toward her heart. As it peaked, with a sharp break, I cut it loose and let it fly. Dizzy, I stumbled back, as did the others, but then Lannan stepped away while the rest of us cheered and cried and held one another.

I held Rhia by the shoulders. “You know I love you.”

She smiled, the summer sun beaming through her eyes. “I know. We’ll win this, Cicely. We’ll win this because we have to win this. And then . . . the future will take care of itself. You and I will guide the Barrows into a new day.” She leaned in, gave me a kiss on the cheek. “We are fire and ice.”

“Amber and jet.”

“Summer and Winter.”

As I slowly pulled away, I turned to Chatter. “Take care of my cousin . . . just in case I don’t make it back.”

He gave me a soft smile, so strong in himself compared to the Chatter I’d first met a few weeks ago. “No need, Lady Cicely. You will be here to do that yourself.”

“I hope so.” Sucking in a deep breath, I called for my owl cloak. “We’d best go now.” Ulean swept in close to me, and Grieve took my left side.
Hunter and Lannan guarded the right. The guards—nine total, including three vampires, and six of my men led by Check and Fearless—
Surrounded us. They were helping Kaylin, who couldn’t walk atop the snow. The vampires were light on their feet when they wanted to be—
And so we headed out the door, into the blinding storm, silently moving into the swirl of white that had become the night.
I can't wait to give this one a read! Alright, how about a couple quickies before you head out?

Yard gnomes or flamingos?
Oh man, what a choice. Yard gnomes—they camouflage better! *lol true, true*
Weirdest thing in your purse right now?
I think I still have some acorns in one of the zipper pockets that I picked up at the park last year.
I'm completely obsessed with?
Music. A lot of things. I’m OCD, it’s easy for me to get focused. LOL
Something you'd totally do if you could get away with it?
This is going to sound so mundane, but given my food allergies and need to be low carb, if I COULD get away with it safely, I’d eat a whole pan of macaroni and cheese, and then a carton of ice cream. ~laughs~
Oh my gosh I think that sounds pretty dang amazing myself. I'm a total mac&cheese junkie. My favorite is this crock pot version. Sooo good! lol Alright,  before you head out...what's up next for ya?
Finishing up PANTHER PROWLING (book 17 of the Otherworld Series), I have page proofs due on PRIESTESS DREAMING (book 16 of OW), and starting the first book in the Fly By Night Series!
