Blog Tour Interview & Giveaway - Wolf’s Bane by Ash Krafton

Wolf’s Bane
Book 3
Ash Krafton
Genre: urban fantasy

Book Description:
Since becoming oracle to the demivampire two years ago, advice columnist Sophie has battled werewolves and survived a vampire attack (or two). However, not only was she powerless to save her lover Marek when he slipped to the brink of evolution, she also witnessed his transformation into a falcon, the symbol of Horus United.

Sophie’s quest to save Marek is further complicated when rock star Dierk Adeluf – who also happens to be the king of the Werekind – invites her backstage after a concert. Just when it seems she will find respite from heartache, Sophie is bitten by a werewolf and Dierk decides she is destined to be his queen.

Sophie is caught between the demivamps she loves and the Were who commands her to love him. Throw in his jealous wanna-be girlfriend—a true bitch if ever there was one—and an ambush by witches, and there you have the big mess that Sophie calls her life. And, hello? Her soul mate is still a bird.

She’s supposed to be the girl with all the answers, but Sophie needs more than a little advice–she needs divine intervention.

Character Interview with Sophie Galen

1. Tell us a little about yourself - your name, where you grew up?

I’m Sophie Galen. I grew up north of Allentown, PA. I went to college in Philly and now live in a town in southeast PA called Balaton. I practiced nursing for a dog’s age but I’m currently an advice columnist for The Mag. Oh yeah, and I’m an oracle known by the Demivampire as “The Sophia”. Kind of been wondering if my folks had a little premonition when they named me.

2. Who was your high school crush? I have to name just one?

I had a dozen rock-star imaginary boyfriends. And, there was the whole Johnny Depp-or-Richard Grieco period I went through. Cripes, that was a rough year. J

Lucky I didn’t have to crush in real life. I had Jared. Sandy brown curls, eyes the color of my favorite blue jeans, and a kiss that curled my toes. How lucky could I be, finding my soul mate when I was just seventeen?

3. What is the most romantic gesture you have ever done for someone?

Love them so much that I would take all their grief, their despair, their every pain and protect them from it, even if it hurt me.

4. What's your ideal Valentine's Day date and/or gift?

Shoes. Give me great shoes and I’ll give you my undying affection.

5. If you could have just one wish to change something about yourself, what would it be?

I would be braver. People think I’m strong, but I think destiny just isn’t ready to kill me off yet. Serendipity or dumb luck, I don’t know. Maybe I just have a load of grace under pressure. But when I’m alone at night, and it’s just me thinking, I cannot figure out how I’ve gotten through everything. Jared once told me that only when a heart is broken can you see the strength inside. I don’t know. I have to believe there is something bigger than me out there, watching out for me, because I’m sure as heck  not bad-ass  enough to do it on my own.

6. What is the simple most important thing needed for a relationship to last?

Hope. Hope is what keeps us together when the world is tearing us apart. Hope lets us say trite things like “This, too, shall pass” and hope lets us move mountains and slay dragons and save men from themselves. Hope. There is no love without hope.

7. What's the strangest thing that has ever happened to you?

Okay, it goes without saying that the strangest thing that ever happened was the day my oracle-otherness manifested. I mean, how could I have known that I had this super-thing in my brain, or that I’d be able to pull demivamps back from the terrible edge of evolution?

8. Who should play you in a film?

Zooey Deschanel. She’s got my oracle-blue eyes and seems to have a certain depth of heart. She can sing, too. I can’t, so if the film is a musical Zooey would be brilliant.

9. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A teacher. My seventh grade teacher yelled at me when I told her. She said I’d have to work part-time at Kmart just to pay my bills because teacher’s pay was terrible. I went in to nursing, but the English composition nerd in me prevailed and I switched to journalism when the medical field got to be too stressful.

10. Say the first thing that comes to mind when I say these five words, and be honest:

1. Snow? Snoopy.
2. Peppermind? Peppermint? LOL Life Savers.
3. Couple? Split.
4. Pop? Rocks.
5. Tokyo? Babymetal. Seriously Wiki them and YouTube “Gimme Chocolate”: LOVE!
