~*~RELEASE BLITZ& REVIEW~*~Dragon Fall By Katie MacAlister

By Katie MacAlister

For Aoife Dakar, seeing is believing-and she's seen some extraordinary things. It's too bad no one else believes that she witnessed a supernatural murder at an outdoor fair. Returning to the scene for proof, Aoife encounters a wise-cracking demon dog-and a gloriously naked man who can shift into a dragon and kiss like a god. Now thrust into a fantastical world that's both exhilarating and terrifying, Aoife is about to learn just how hot a dragon's fire burns.

Kostya has no time for a human woman with endless questions, no matter how gorgeous or tempting she is. He must break the curse that has splintered the dragon clans before more of his kind die. But his powerful attraction to Aoife runs much deeper than the physical-and there may be more to her than even his sharp dragon eyes can see. To survive the coming battle for the fate of his race, he needs a mate of true heart and soul.

to come

For as long as she can remember Katie MacAlister has loved reading, and grew up with her nose buried in a book. It wasn't until many years later that she thought about writing her own books, but once she had a taste of the fun to be had building worlds, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes, she was hooked.

With more than fifty books under her belt, Katie's novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and are regulars on the New York TimesUSA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. A self-proclaimed gamer girl, she lives in the Pacific Northwest with her dogs, and frequently can be found hanging around online.

Q&A with Katie
Q1. For all your new readers, what would be that one book you would recommend in your collection to start with; which book do you feel is your staple that makes your books you?

Q2. What are your favorite genre's to read? Who is your "Go-To" author? What are you reading now?

Q3. You've been publishing since 2002, in these 13 years how do you see the  literary industry changing? How do you stay fresh with the new ideas?

A1. For paranormal readers, I'd suggest they start with the first dragon book, You Slay Me. That gives you a good grounding in who the dragons are, and who the players are in the paranormal world. For historical readers: gotta be Noble Intentions. Contemp fans would probably do best to start with Corset Diaries. For someone open to any genre...probably You Slay Me. That book pretty accurately depicts my (wacky and irreverent) voice.

A2. Mysteries, mysteries, mysteries. I'm a die-hard mystery reader, and I have been since I was a wee little Katie hoarding my mother's blue tweed Nancy Drew collection. My go-to author has always been Agatha Christie--she had a way of working plot twists that demand admiration (and envy! I'd love to be able to throw out twists like she did). Right now I'm listening to a PG Wodehouse Jeeves and Wooster book (the Mating Season), listening to one of my dragon books (Love in the Time of Dragons), and reading a mystery called Devoured (by DE Meredith). I'm also reading an art history book for an art history class, which is all sorts of wonderful fun.

A3. When my first book came out in 2002, ebooks were in their infancy, and audio books were just about as scarce. I was lucky to have editors who let me do whatever I wanted, and who embraced my somewhat warped sense of humor, which continues to this day. I think authors have more choices as to the paths they wish to take, whether they want to self-publish books, or go a traditional route to reach a different group of readers.

After more than fifty books published, I'm actually kind of amazed when my muse trots out a new story idea, and presents it to me with a recommendation that I write that book next. I think part of the reason I'm able to keep coming up with new ideas is that I am basically writing books that I want to read--and there's an endless number of dishy guys out there just waiting to embrace me...er...*ENTERTAIN* me.
