Welcome to my stop on the Cold Blooded Blog Tour! The awesome Amanda Carlson is promoting her third installment in the Jessica McClain series and has stopped by for a quick Q&A and a fabulous giveaway that you don’t want to miss. Pull up a seat and show Amanda some love! 😉


RtDS: Thanks so much for stopping by Amanda, I’m super excited to have you on the blog!

AC: I’m so excited to be here. Thanks for having me!

RtDS: Give us three (3) quick facts about your heroine Jessica that may surprise readers.

AC: As a child she was ambidextrous, she hates butterscotch flavored anything, and she’s a great dancer.

RtDS: Who designs your fabulous book covers?

AC: The credit goes to the creative director at Orbit, Lauren Panepinto, and a few talented others: Photos by Shirley Green, Illustrations by Rob Shields, and Design by Chad Roberts. What a phenomenal team! I feel so lucky, because the covers are amazing.

RtDS: Besides pinning sexy men on Pinterest, what is your favorite thing to do when you have free time? 😉

AC: I love going to movies, and recently, as a brain cleanser, I will admit to playing my fair share of Candy Crush. However, I have never paid a dime for any game! It’s nice to have that downtime where you brain can relax for five seconds during the day. I also love cooking when I find the time.

RtDS: Finish this sentence using as much or little detail as possible the Jessica McClain series will appeal to readers who…

AC: …love action, kickass, an upbeat heroine, and a little snark in their books.

RtDS: Can you give a sneak peek (spoiler free of course) of what we can expect for Jessica as the series progresses?

AC: Jessica’s journey is going to be one long race to reach the end. There will be ups and downs, twists and turns, drama and fun, but in the end I hope to deliver an exciting story each and every time.

Thanks for having me by the blog. COLD BLOODED releases about ten days on 10/8. So excited to share it with the world!
