Michelle Madow author interview + international GIVEAWAY!

To celebrate my almost 100 bloglovin followers, I have a little suprise for you all! Michelle Madow wanted to help out and we planned on doing a fab giveaway! I asked her 3 questions about her new book 'The prophecy of Shadows', this book will be published January 26th and will be the 1st book in her new series called 'Elementals'. Michelle has written books before. One of her biggest succes being the Secret Diamond sisters trilogy published by HarlequinTeen.

About Michelle
Michelle Madow grew up in Baltimore, graduated Rollins College in Orlando, and now lives in Boca Ranton, Florida. She wrote her first book in her junior year of college, and has been writing novels since. Some of her favorite things are: Reading, Pizza, Travelling, Shopping, Time travel, Broadway musicals, And spending time with her friends and family. Michelle has toured across America to encourage high school students to embrace reading and writing. Someday, she hopes to travel the world for a year on a cruiseship.

What is Elementals, the prophecy of shadows about?
When Nicole Cassidy moves from sunny Georgia to gloomy New England, the last thing she expects is to learn that her homeroom is a cover for a secret coven of witches. Even more suprisingly.... she's apparently a witch herself. Despite doubts about her newfound abilities, Nicole is welcomed into this ancient circle of witches and is bedazzles by their powers-and, to her dismay, by Blake-the school's notorious bad-boy.

Girls who get close to Blake wind up hurt. His girlfriend Danielle will do anything to keep them away, even if she must resort to using dark magic. But the chemistry between Blake and Nicole is undeniable, and despite wanting to protect Nicole to Danielle's
wratch, he finds it impossible to keep his distance.

When the Olympian comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years,Nicole, Blake, Danielle and to others in their homeroom are gifted with mysterious powers. But the comet has another effect-it opens the portal to the prison world that contained the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes and attacks Nicole and Blakem it's up to them and the others to follow the clues from a cryptic prophecy so that they can save their town... and possibly the world

As I said, I asked her 3 questions for this mini-interview! here they are!
1. Who or what inspired you to start writing this book?
I wrote Elementals: the prophecy of shadows when I was a seniour in College. I've always loved magic, witches and greek mythology, And thought it would be cool to write a book that combined those elements. When I came up with the idea for Elementals and shared it with friends and family, they all loved it and encouraged me to write it, so I did!
2. This book is totally different in Genre than The secret Diamond sisters, why did you choose to do this?
My first series, the transcend time saga, has reincarnation and time travel, als most of my other book ideas all have fantasy elements in them as well. Fantasy and sci-fi have always been what I love most as a reader and as a writer. I think the secret diamond sisters is different than all my other books and ideas! The reason for that is for me, Las Vegas has always felt like a fantasy world, so I loved setting that series in there. But while it was fun to write a contemporary series, from now on, expect most of my books to have fantasy or sci-fi elements in them, because those genres are really what I truly love!

3. If you look to yourself as an author, do you feel having accomplished certain dreams and goals?
There are some dreams I've already accomplished (like finishing my 1st novel and getting a major publishing deal), and others that I still want to accomplish (like seeing my books on a bestseller list). I'm proud of all my accomplishments, and hope to see myself fulfill even more of my dreams in future!
