Witch Born Release day! + Interview with Amber Argyle!

Witch Song (book one) :

The world is changing. Once, Witch Song controlled everything from the winds to the shifting of the seasons-but not anymore. All the Witches are gone, taken captive by a traitor. All but Brusenna. As the echo of their songs fade, the traitor grows stronger. Now she is coming for Brusenna. Her guardian has sworn to protect her, but even he can't stop the Dark Witch. Somehow, Brusenna has to succeed where every other Witch has failed. Find the traitor. Fight her. Defeat her. Because if Brusenna doesn't, there won't be anything left to save.

*Drum roll please*

I love the cover to Witch Song but I LOVE this cover even more! 
Witch Born (Book two): 

Brusenna thought it was finished. 

She defeated the Dark Witch, saving the Haven Witches from imprisonment and death. She found love and a place to belong. 
She was wrong. 
Haven is not the sanctuary it appears to be. Even love is in danger of slipping away like water through cupped hands. 
Some things can't be saved. 
A new threat merges with the old as the Witches’ dark history begins to catch up with them. Only Brusenna knows the extent of the danger and how to stop it, though doing so might cost her everything.
Including her life. 
Will Brusenna be required to make the ultimate sacrifice?

Okay, does this series just sound amazing or what?  I LOVE IT! 
And to show it I have interviewed the wonderful (and quite hilarious) author.  

Amber is one of the funniest and most talented people I know.  

Konstanz:  Funniest thing that has happened to you at a book event? (Signing, Conference. . .etc)

Amber: Jessica Day George, Julie Peterson Wright, and I were hanging out at the end of a conference. They actually walked me to my car to make sure I arrived safely. It was my very first conference, and I'd had a foot in my mouth moment. Anyway, we spent about 3 hours in the parking garage laughing our heads off and inhaling exhaust fumes. They made me laugh about it instead of feel bad. *fist pump* Impotent trolls!!! (inside joke, sorry)

Konstanz: You are one of the funniest people I have ever met, does it just come naturally? 

Amber: Kinda. I'm a silly person, and the more nervous;/hyper I am, the sillier I become. It's not always a good thing. Sometimes the filter from my brain to my mouth is a little to porous. 

Konstanz:   If you could be any of the Disney Princesses for a day, which one would you be? (And why?) 

Amber: Love that question! It would have to be between Belle and the Little Mermaid. The Little Mermaid lives in the sea! How cool is that? And she can sing (unlike myself Really, the singing in Witch Song is a longing rather than a reflection of myself). But then, she isn't a mermaid at the end. Which I think sucks. Sure she has a castle, but she had one before. Not much of a step up IMO. 

Also, have you seen Belle's library?!? I'd marry a guy for that alone (sorry, hubby, but you know it's true). Plus, she gets a house full of servants. I want a house full of servants. And she can sing. And I like roses.

Belle it is. 

Konstanz:  If you had to invent a super power, what would it be? 

Amber: The ability to make other people happy. 

And this last questions goes to Witch Song: 

Konstanz:  I read an interview you did on another blog and was just taken away by one of the questions and your answer.  The question is: If your book was about to made into a movie, what would the tagline for the poster be?

And your answer was:  As the seasons crumble, the last Witch must fight to save a world that hates her.    (I am totally in love with this!) 

Why didn't you use that for the tagline on the book? 

Amber: I have no idea. Maybe we should have. 

See?  Didn't I say she was hilarious?  And seriously,  isn't that tag line just amazing?  Really, it should have been used for the book.  

Thank you for stopping by, Amber
